39v- The Lord Has Re-established His Kingdom (Church) On The Earth And Sees To It That All, Throughout the World, Have Free Access to Its Message! #2

To Access This Blog's Index, Please Scroll Down To the Fifth Paragraph From The End of This Post.


The Lord Jesus Christ - Painting: Heinrich Hofmann
Isaiah 2: 2(Also, II Nephi 12: 2-3) And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. (emphasis added)
I have repeated the scripture above as part of TODAY'S THEME of this post as well as that of my just previous post because I continue to prepare you, my blog readers for the possibility of your choosing to listen, be you members of this church or not, via your own Internet source, to the upcoming General Conference sessions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be held Saturday April 3, and Sunday April 4, 2010.

I have emphasized these words from that Isaiah scripture: That is surely how the Lord helps us, members and non-members alike, in LDS Church General Conferences, through the messages given by inspired men and women leaders of His church.
. . . and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths.
In order to clarify the reason why I chose the above scripture from the Book of Isaiah from the Old Testament and also from the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ, I give you the opportunity to read and ponder these words of our Resurrected Lord Jesus Christ which he delivered to the surviving righteous Nephites (from the great cataclysm that had killed a great portion of their nation - the more unrighteous portion) near the temple in their Land Bountiful (located somewhere in Ancient Central America in 34 A.D.):

The Resurrected Lord Jesus Christ Teaching the Nephite People in Ancient Central America -by John Scott
3 Nephi 23: 1 AND now, behold, I say unto you, that ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah. 2 For surely he spake as touching all things concerning my people which are of the house of Israel; therefore it must needs be that he must speak also to the Gentiles. (emphasis added)

Just a very personal note! Whenever I view the interior of the huge LDS Conference Center it becomes extra amazing to me because right there in its auditorium's more Southerly area (on your right side as you view the podium and organ), many years ago, was located the actual first hospital of several versions of the famous Primary Children's Hospitals that have existed over the years,

including the very successful and spacious hospital which is now located East of the University of Utah Campus in Salt Lake City, Utah (U.S.A.). (Click on the picture for a close-up view).

This is the earliest Primary Children's Hospital and was located at 40 W. North Temple St. in Salt Lake City, UT, U.S.A. Formerly it was the Orson Hyde home. (Click on the picture for a close-up view). I was admitted there as a six year old patient in 1938 and where I remained for fourteen months completing my first grade schooling there within the hospital! I was being treated for osteomylitis of my left knee caused by T.B. My family lived 700 miles West of there in Roseville, California. I have both very happy and also very sad memories of my time there, as I personally view the interior of this relatively new Conference Center. Please forgive my personal reflections!
However, I do enjoy greatly being inside the Conference Center and just viewing it like you will have done, in just a few moments from now!
Recently, in a voluntary church service assignment I accepted with others from our LDS Church ward, I spent about two and a half hours very late one night cleaning the backs of seats while two others cleaned the front parts of the seats that are in one section on the lower level of that auditorium. Another ward member, a counselor in our bishopric, vacuumed several sections. It wasn't very dirty! The Church really keeps that building in good shape! I, along with the others, enjoyed the assignment!

To view this and a second photo and explanations of both, please view my post #14, dated: July 12, 2008 View This It Shows Various Views of the LDS Conference Center and of Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah

I have inserted below a photograph of a Boeing 747 Jet Airliner. When the LDS Conference Center was under construction, I heard it often reported from a number of sources that one of those very huge Boeing 747 airliners could fit inside the new Conference Center Auditorium! Do not copy or alter this photo!
Now, having a few minutes ago, finished your Panoramic View of the Conference Center auditorium, I suggest you, after reading the next five paragraphs, click again on the link which is now just above the words: IMPORTANT NOTE you'll find up the page from here, just several paragraphs. Or if you have already had two visits to the panoramic view scenes, Please, right now, scroll down to below the two red asterisks below. When you are there, you are close to the key part of this post, the several videos I have provided you! Start under the blue line: ______________________

As you may be learning, if you didn't already know, the State of Utah came into being because of The Mormon Pioneers. As you have time, you may want to explore other buildings and places in Salt Lake City and other cities in Utah using that panoramic view program which has been brought onto your screen. And then you could go to the Utah natural wonders that are in the link also. They are really amazing, but with the use of this device they are almost more than amazing!

As I have promised in the first blog post of this series. I now will give you the opportunity of viewing additional musical videos and of LDS General Conference talks given by general authorities of this church. As was so with the videos I showed in my previous post, they do not contain the entire talks that were given. Music, paintings and photos have been added to give an added sense of feeling, spirit and understanding to what is said by the speaker/s.

My purpose in providing these videos for you is to prepare you for the possibility of your being able to tune into, with the help of your computer's Internet, the upcoming General Conference of this Church which will be held on Saturday, April 3, and Sunday April 4th. In the post that I will publish on March 29, I will give you specific instructions which will help you prepare your computer and yourself to be ready to function in the way it/you will need need to function.

I assure you talks at all General Conferences are given by very inspired men and women of our day and time who are very well prepared and have all of our welfare in mind!
The actual General Conference talks, of course, do not have the features that the videos you will be experiencing in the previous post and in this and in the two following posts, but I assure you that you will be able to find application from them in your own life, whether you are a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or not. As you sincerely ask the Lord to help you to be in tune for this spiritual feast, you will find that He will! You may have already learned that by viewing the videos of Conference speeches in my previous post! I'm also sure each of the talks you may experience by tuning into Conference sessions, will be well worth your while.

Those talks will be directed to the attention of LDS Church members rather than non-members. I say this to assure you non-members, that these Church leaders are not trying to convert you. No-one will know you are listening except you or others close to you!

I believe this first video I'm presenting in this post gives us an entire Conference address except for some brief opening remarks. This was the speaker's first address given by him after he had been called by the Lord through His prophet, to become a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. He had spoken in previous General Conferences as a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy. He was Elder Neal A. Maxwell who then served long and very well for a good number of years as an apostle before he died of a very serious disease which he endured patiently.

He was well known for his great and loving character and powerful testimony of the Lord, Jesus Christ, as well as being a superbly inspired and skilled speaker as you will soon discover for yourselves!

As I mentioned in my just previous post, a regular and very important part of each General Conference Session is the presence of and the inspired performance of, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Here is an example of one of their video recordings: Tabernacle Choir:  Musical by MoSop

As that recording nearing its end, I suggest you consider selecting an additional Tabernacle Choir musical video from a list of Related Videos which you will see to the right of the smaller screen you will be in after having pressed (esc.) on your keyboard. I recommend the third listed video down: The Mormon Tabernacle Choir - The Holy City (Time: 5:14 minutes.)

I will now end this post by offering you the opportunity of viewing the following video made up of a number of small portions of General Conference talks given by a number of General Authorities. You will find it full of testimony of living apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ! It is entitled:
