President James E. Faust (1920–2007) of the First Presidency explained the role of prophets and the need for the revelation they receive:

“The prophets, seers, and revelators have had and still have the responsibility and privilege of receiving and declaring the word of God for the world. …

“… These are the prophetic oracles who have tuned in over the centuries to the ‘celestial transmitting station,’ with a responsibility to relay the Lord’s word to others. …

[Hall of the Prophets]

In the Hall of the Prophets, located in the Conference Center, sculpted representations of prophets of this dispensation are a stately reminder that continuous revelation is being received.

“This Church constantly needs the guidance of its head, the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This was well taught by President George Q. Cannon, [while serving in] the First Presidency: ‘We have the Bible, theBook of Mormon and the Book ofDoctrine and Covenants; but all these books, without the living oracles and a constant stream of revelation from the Lord, would not lead any people into the Celestial Kingdom of God’ [Gospel Truth: Discourses and Writings of President George Q. Cannon, 2 vols., sel. Jerreld L. Newquist (1974), 1:323]. …

“Revelation was required to establish this Church. Revelation has brought it from its humble beginnings to its present course. Revelation has come like flowing, living water. Continuing revelation will lead it forward to the windup scene. But as President [J. Reuben] Clark told us, we do not need more or different prophets. We need more people with ‘a listening ear’ (in Conference Report, Oct. 1948, 82)” (“Continuing Revelation,”Ensign, Aug. 1996, 2, 4, 6–7).

Today, as during the meridian of time, the foundation of the Church is the apostles and prophets (see Ephesians 2:20) and the revelation they receive (see Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:16–18). The Lord reveals His will through His servants the prophets and has declared, “My word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same” (D&C 1:38).
