I’ve been noticing this phrase a lot lately. I think it has been used for a while, but it seems to be kind of trendy at the moment. It seems to come up most often in contexts where personal revelation or mere human reasoning are being disparaged as less useful than prophetic counsel.
So where did this usage come from? Why is it popular right now? If you use this phrase in talking about General Authorities, when did you start using it? Do you remember where you first heard/read it? Also, does it have specific content, i.e. does it refer only to the Quorum of the 12, only to the President of the church?
Documentation is appreciated, but ungrounded speculation is also welcomed!
