The revelation of thought takes men out of servitude into freedom.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Revelation is communication from God to His children on the earth and one of the great blessings associated with the gift and constant companionship of the Holy Ghost.
David A. Bednar
Salvation cannot come without revelation. Men of the present time testify of heaven and hell, and have never seen either; and I will say that no man knows these things without this.
Joseph Smith, Jr.

I did not come here to repeat what you already know. I have come to reveal something new. I want to share with you a new revelation from God.
Sun Myung Moon
Faith is reason plus revelation, and the revelation part requires one to think with the spirit as well as with the mind. You have to hear the music, not just read the notes on the page.
A true servant of God will never teach a false doctrine. He will never deny new revelation. He never will tell you that the canon of scripture is full, or that the New Testament is the last revelation ever intended to be given to man.
