“I will say myself that I do not believe there ever was a man . . . that was more closely united and associated with God the Father, and God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost, than the Prophet Joseph Smith. The power of revelation was with him from the day that he was called to receive the Priesthood up to the time when he was martyred. The power of inspiration was with him day by day. . . . He was united with the Lord; he was united with the Holy Ghost; he was united with the angels in heaven” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Wilford Woodruff, p. 16).
