I remember hearing about the white city when I was growing up in the Mormon Church... I have not been Mormon for 20 years. But yes, I remember
hearing about it as a vision or revelation. I just googled it and found this quote - sounds familiar once I read it. It was a quote by David
“I … fell asleep, and beheld in vision something infinitely sublime. In the distance I beheld a beautiful white city. Though far away, yet I
seemed to realize that trees with luscious fruit, shrubbery with gorgeously-tinted leaves, and flowers in perfect bloom abounded everywhere. The clear
sky above seemed to reflect these beautiful shades of color. I then saw a great concourse of people approaching the city. Each one wore a white
flowing robe, and a white headdress. Instantly my attention seemed centered upon their Leader, and though I could see only the profile of his features
and his body, I recognized him at once as my Savior! The tint and radiance of his countenance were glorious to behold! There was a peace about him
which seemed sublime—it was divine!
“The city, I understood, was his. It was the City Eternal; and the people following him were to abide there in peace and eternal happiness.
“But who were they?
“As if the Savior read my thoughts, he answered by pointing to a semicircle that then appeared above them, and on which were written in gold the
“ ‘These Are They Who Have Overcome The World—Who Have Truly Been Born Again!’ ”
