Mosiah 8:15-17 -- On Seers, Prophets, and Revelation

"And the king said that a seer is greater than a prophet.
And Ammon said that a seer is a revelator and a prophet also; and a gift which is greater can no man have, except he should possess the power of God, which no man can; yet a man may have great power given him from God.
But a seer can know of things which are past, and also of things which are to come, and by them shall all things be revealed, or, rather, shall secret things be made manifest, and hidden things shall come to light, and things which are not known shall be made known by them, and also things shall be made known by them which otherwise could not be known."
Mosiah 8:15-17

General Conference is this coming weekend, and in thinking about these verses, that is what came to mind.  This talks about seers, revelators, and prophets, and this weekend we have the chance to actually listen to some in real life, instead of just in the pages of scripture.  Like so much of the gospel, it's miraculous just to think about the opportunity and potential that God is granting us here.
As it talks about, a seer can basically know anything, and so God can answer our questions by speaking through them, even when we're having a hard time hearing his voice in our own lives.  If there is something that God wants to say to the world, we are going to hear it from prophets, seers, and revelators, which conveniently is the lineup of speakers for this weekend. :). General Conference is where we are going to hear God's messengers share what God thinks is relevant for our day.
Today, and this weekend, let's remember how important prophets and seers are.  Let's make the time to be instructed by modern revelation, and God's messages to each of us that will touch us individually as we listen.
