Dan. 2: 28, "But

darkness, and come unto the knowledge of the people; and it shall be
done by the power of God."

of God on earth is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (D&C
65). The purpose of the Church is to prepare its members to live forever
in the celestial kingdom or kingdom of heaven. However, the scriptures
sometimes call the Church the kingdom of heaven, meaning that the Church
is the kingdom of heaven on earth.
"The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the kingdom of God on the earth,
but it is at present limited to an ecclesiastical kingdom. During the
Millennium, the kingdom of God will be both political and ecclesiastical."

"The Lord reveals
his work to his prophets and confirms to believers that the revelations
to the prophets are true (Amos 3: 7). Through revelation, the Lord provides
individual guidance for every person who seeks it and who has faith,
repents, and is obedient to the gospel of Jesus Christ.”The Holy Ghost
is a revelator,” said Joseph Smith, and “no man can receive the Holy
Ghost without receiving revelations.”
"In the Lord’s
Church, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are
prophets, seers, and revelators to the Church and to the world. The
President of the Church is the only one whom the Lord has authorized
to receive revelation for the Church (D&C 28: 2-7). Every person may
receive personal revelation for his own benefit." (Guide
to the Scriptures, Revelation)
