Post 47a: Once again I Take the Opportunity of Focusing on a Talk Given in a Very Recent General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this Blog Post You Will Hear a Member of the First Presidency of that Church, Henry B. Eyring, Bear Personal Witness of Your and Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I am Sure Each of You Viewers will be Edified! Adding to that Edification are a Good Number of Scriptures Which I Have, Along With One LDS Hymn, With Its Music, Made Accessible So You Can Sing It While Still Viewing this Blog Post! President Eyring Referred Those Scriptures and That Hymn to Us in His Notes Which are Found at the End of His Talk!

The Following Blog Description Explains Why My Blog is named: "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!

Henry B. Eyring of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
You are now invited to listen also while reading the April 2013 Conference Talk of President Eyring:

May 2013 Ensign entitled: "Come Unto Me" 

(You will need to click on the the word: Listen after you have clicked on that which is just below)

The following was put together by Neil Birch using the NOTES President Eyring listed at the end of his General Conference talk: They will help you remember and perhaps more fully appreciate the things he told us in his talk and help you treasure up those things as sacred and helpful guides in your lives!

Jesus the Christ -by Del Parson

Doctrine and Covenants 88:63  Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you; seek me diligently and ye shall find me; ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Doctrine and Covenants 6:20  "Behold, thou art Oliver, and I have spoken unto thee because of thy desires; therefore treasure up these words in thy heart. Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God, and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love." (although spoken to Oliver Cowdery all of the above sacred words in blue apply to each of us too!)

Words and music to "Abide with Me; "Tis Eventide" #65 LDS Hymn Book (You are invited to sing along as you listen to the recording and read the words and the musical notes on your screen. The page will shift by itself. Just sing any part you choose to sing. For me, as I previewed this blog post of mine I sang the Tenor part but am a Baritone!) Of course, you will be thinking of our Savior, Jesus Christ as you sing those inspired words!

Luke 24: (Angels announce the resurrection of Christ: 5-7)  5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

  6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

  7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

Mark 16:7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

The Resurrected Jesus Visits With Some of His Disciples at EMMAUS. At first they do not recognize Him!

The Resurrected Jesus visits with His Disciples at Emmaus  -by Duccio di Buoninsegna

Luke 24:15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

  16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

  17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

  18 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

Luke 24:

  25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

  26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

  27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

Luke 24:28 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

  29 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

I, Neil Birch, the blogger, added these four verses:

Luke 24:30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

  31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

Behold My Hands and Feet. -by Harry Anderson

Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

  47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

  48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

Now we turn to President Eyring's references from the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

Alma Baptizing in the Waters of Mormon. -Arnold Friberg

Mosiah 18:8 And it came to pass that he said unto them: Behold, here are the waters of Mormon (for thus were they called) and now, as ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light;

  9 Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life—

  10 Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you?

  11 And now when the people had heard these words, they clapped their hands for joy, and exclaimed: This is the desire of our hearts.

Christ's Image. -by Heinrich Hofmann. 

President Eyring also included these references:
Doctrine and Covenants 84:88  And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.

Doctrine and Covenants 100:VERILY, thus saith the Lord unto you, my friends Sidney and Joseph, your families are well; they are in mine hands, and I will do with them as seemeth me good; for in me there is all power.

and this one also:

Mosiah 27:14 And again, the angel said: Behold, the Lord hath heard the prayers of his people, and also the prayers of his servant, Alma, who is thy father; for he has prayed with much faith concerning thee that thou mightest be brought to the knowledge of the truth; therefore, for this purpose have I come to convince thee of the power and authority of God, that the prayers of his servants might be answered according to their faith.

Doctrine and Covenants 14: 6 Seek to bring forth and establish my Zion. Keep my commandments in all things.

  7 And, if you keep my commandments and endure to the end you shall have eternal life, which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God.

Doctrine and Covenants 59: 2 For those that live shall inherit the earth, and those that die shall rest from all their labors, and their works shall follow them; and they shall receive a crown in the mansions of my Father, which I have prepared for them.

The First Vision  -By Gary Kapp.
Joseph Smith History 1:1:17 It no sooner appeared than I found myself adelivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me Ibsaw two cPersonages, whose brightness and dglory defy all description, estanding above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is MyfBeloved gSon. Hear Him!

Christ's Image:  -by Heinrich Hofmann.
I, Neil Birch am sure President Eyring would want each of us to apply the following scriptures to ourselves as much as they may actually apply to us presently or even in the future! They were included in his list.

Matthew 11:28  ¶ Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 25: 21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
