Post 46x: Once Again it is My Privilege to Assist You in Focusing on Another Key Principle of the Lord Jesus Christ's Gospel: OBEDIENCE! After Presenting a New Testament Scripture From the Book of "Hebrews" Written by the Apostle Paul on that Subject and One From the Book of Luke You Will then also Enjoy Hearing From Thomas S. Monson, the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Regarding How as an Eight Year Old Boy, He Learned the Hard Way About the Importance of the Gospel Principle of Obedience! I Know You Will Enjoy Experiencing His Engaging Talk Along With Those Scriptures Regarding the Obedience of Our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ!
The Following Blog Description Explains Why My Blog has been renamed: "Four Books of Scripture Testify of Jesus Christ!
Jesus the Christ -by Del Parson
WELCOME, NEW AND PREVIOUS VIEWERS OF THIS BLOG: In this and in every additional post of this blog you will be led on a carefully and prayerfully planned exciting and inspiring journey as you prepare by means of a guided study of the four sacred books of scripture I am shown holding above; which will assist you in becoming more righteously happy now and more fully prepared for eventual After-Mortality Eternal Endeavors on your part, along with your loved ones and countless other mortals who are seeking to qualify as our Heavenly Father's worthy children.
Those enabling Books of Scripture were brought about through the love of the Heavenly Father of our immortal spirits which now inhabit our mortal bodies; and were a key part of the Restoration of the Gospel, and of establishing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, through the Prophet Joseph Smith early in the Nineteenth Century. Leading out in all of this, was of course, Our Heavenly Father's Only Begotten Son who is our Lord, Savior, and Redeemer, Jesus Christ (who initially was our eldest spirit brother and is the only one of us our Heavenly Father will have ever sired into mortality).
Jesus accomplished His Infinite Atonement, the Ultimate Mortal Sacrifice, along with His infallibly witnessed Resurrection. He is our Redeemer and Savior and has opened the way for each of us to learn with certainty through those four books of scripture, and through the inspired teachings of His prophets, seers and revelators of our day and those authorized by them; that some time after our mortal deaths, because of His atonement and resurrection, and depending on the level of individual rightousness we each attain to, through His grace, we can eventually experience Eternal Life in our own resurrected bodies, which in the case of those who fully heeded all of His scriptural guidance and the guidance of His authorized living servants, there will be full possession of Godly capabilities!

Jesus in the Wood Shop Learning by Obedience to His Step-Father, Joseph
THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE
8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
As always, Jesus from His youth demonstrated strict obedience, not only to His earthly step-father, Joseph and his actual mother Mary, but also to His and our Heavenly Father, who only in the case of Jesus out of all of us born on earth anytime throughout its long and continuing history, was not only the Heavenly Father of Jesus' Eternal Spirit, but actually He was also the Birth Father of Jesus's mortal body!
Luke 2:41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
Now, as it has become my custom of late in these blog posts I've been publishing, I turn once again to a modern day Prophet who is also an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ in our day, Thomas S. Monson who is also the President and Prophet Seer and Revelator of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He provides us a very lively and and even humorous example how he learned as an eight year old boy the negative consequences of disobedience and as one of the Lord's apostles learned of the blessings that came to several very obedient members of the Church who had lived behind the "Iron Curtain of Communism for a long time! Please enjoy both viewing and listening to this General Conference address.

From One Mormon's Point of View
So much is being said nowadays on the Internet by people not of the Mormon faith, about the Mormons and their beliefs. Why not learn about us Mormons from one of us. I'm not an official of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, just one of the regular members, yet I'm one who supports Mormon beliefs because I have a testimony and have had much experience that has shown me the truth. I welcome your questions and even criticisms that you have heard, about which you would like the truth. If that is the case, you've come to the right guy.
