41i Preparing to Experience The 180th Semi-Annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints On October 2 & 3, 2010

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


The Lord Jesus Christ -by Heinrich Hofmann

Isaiah 2:2-3 (Also, II Nephi 12: 2-3) And it shall come to pass in the last days, that (when) 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. 
The Resurrected Jesus Christ Appears to Those Nephites Who Survived -by John Scott
When teaching the Nephite people of ancient Central America after his resurrection and appearance to them, our, and their savior, Jesus Christ, instructed them:
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)
Note: The teachings of Isaiah are found both in the Book of Isaiah in our Old Testament and also in II Nephi of the Book of Mormon. Therefore, Nephi the son of Lehi was able to make his quote from Isaiah from the Plates of Brass which he had obtained from Laban's servant, Zoram.
 After Nephi and his three brothers had returned from Jerusalem to the wilderness where their family was waiting for them, Lehi and his family and their future descendants would have continuing access to the Book of Isaiah which was contained, along with many other scriptures, in the Plates of Brass.  
Isaiah speaks of the Lord's House being established in the "Top of the Mountains."

Any of you who have been to the state of Utah located in the Western part of the United States of America will realize that Isaiah could have been speaking of the area where Salt Lake City, Utah is located.

It is here, in that city that the Semi-annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be held on October 2nd and 3rd, 2010.

During this General Conference, speakers will be chosen from among the General Authorities of this church. Its prophet, Thomas S. Monson, his two counselors, and all the members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will be among the speakers in the four sessions of Conference which are televised and linked to the Internet.Here is a view of the huge interior of the Conference Center Auditorium:

During the 180th Semi-Annual Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints you will hear many important spiritual messages. Among those you will hear, apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ and other leaders of His church will bear personal witness regarding our Savior's Life, Atonement, Resurrection and Eventual Return to Earth to rule and reign during the Great Millenium.

Here are some excerpts from previous conference addresses where apostles and our present prophet have born witness of our Savior, Jesus Christ. These addresses  have been made into a short video. You can expect such witnessing to take place during this General Conference.

Excerpts From Previous General Conference Addresses

Although there are many serious moments during LDS Church General Conferences such as was the case during the testimony bearing you have just viewed, there are also times of reverent laughter and times of rejoicing because of our being privileged to live in this time in history when the Lord's Church has been Restored (Re-established). General conferences are joyful events!

There are a good number of times when all of those participating in General Conference through whatever means; in person, by television or by the Internet and even by radio, can enjoy the special experience of hearing the World Renown Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing at the Sunday morning session of each Conference. If you have never heard them sing I would be surprised. They have toured the world a good number of times over the years. They really are an important part of every General Conference.

(Please read my comment on this choir's regular Sunday Morning Broadcasts near the end of this post!)

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir Performs So Well!

 "Abide With Me; 'Tis Even Tide" (Accompanied by the Orchestra on Temple Square. (Arrangement by: Barlow Bradford) The Choir is not seen in this recording. The words of the song are shown on the screen with pictures of scenes depicted in the words of the song, from time to time. Or you can choose the following (or both):

"Abide With Me; 'Tis Even Tide" Accompanied by the Salt Lake Tabernacle Organ (Arrangement by: Crawford Gates) In this recording the Choir is shown throughout.
Here is another conference talk that has been converted into a video:

Elder Quentin L. Cook's Conference Talk, "Hope Ya Know, We had a Hard Time."

This next very short and cleverly written song is a special treat for you that helps you know a little about each one of the members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

In this final portion of this blog post I will assist you to know how to connect to the General Conference sessions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which will be broadcast on October 2, and 3, 2010. If you know you cannot connect with that conference by TV, I suggest you use your computer's Internet. In that case please follow these directions:

Note: At this time please just read these steps, do not take them now. As you read these four steps you will be instructed to print them. After they are printed you will be able to use your printed guide to take each of those steps toward viewing General Conference over the Internet.

[ Step 1: Please print these four steps. In case you need help in printing: I suggest that you select, using your cursor, this portion of this post of mine (from Step 1) down to the end of Step #4. Then, after holding down the Alt key, tap on (the -f-key and then on the p key) Then click on Preferences, and then indicate you want it printed on two sides of the paper if your printer can do that. When the Printer Guide comes onto your screen please click on the word, selection, that will be on the printer's guide. And then on that same printer guide on your screen, click on print. your selection will then be printed for you so you will have these instructions in front of you to follow when you are ready to proceed.

Step 2: Make sure your computer is connected to a media player! If it is connected to one you should see its logo on your Internet home page. Usually it will be at the bottom of that page. If you need to connect to a media player, you may have to check with Google or what ever Internet system you are using to have them help you find a suitable media player.

Step 3: Please click on the following: In the center column of the page which comes up after clicking on that, you will see, just under the blue view in which the Christus statue is shown, the title:

Step 4: Please scroll down a few lines from that title to the link: Live Audio and video streams After clicking on that link you will be helped to know in exact details how General Conference can be experienced by you in several different ways.]
(Even though General Conference may be just a day or two away, you probably ought to practice doing what you will do when Conference Day has arrived.) You will be led through the steps you must take to view and listen to the General Conference Sessions. Many of you most likely don't need these detailed instructions. You are much more knowledgeable about these matters than I am.
As promised above here is some information about the Mormon Tabernacle Choir which may interest you:  It was announced on August 4, 2010 that their radio broadcasts had been voted into the National (U.S.A.) Radio Hall of Fame!
"Music and the Spoken Word" featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has been produced on Sunday mornings for more than 80 years. This broadcast originates from Salt Lake City, Utah, Radio Station KSL - AM (1160) and FM (102.7). It is broadcast simultaneously on KSL TV from 9:30 - 10:00 a.m. (Mountain Time)
