Post 46y: Once Again I Base One of My Posts On a LDS General Conference Address Given by One of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! Elder Dallin H. Oaks Served Previously as the President of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah and After That as a Member of the Supreme Court of the State of Utah. He Very Skillfully Drew Upon a Good Number of Holy Scriptures in His October 2011 General Conference Address To Help Us Learn Just Who Jesus Really Is! I, J. Neil Birch Have Chosen Paintings Which I Feel Illustrate That Which Elder Oaks Describes in That Address Which You Will Hear Him Deliver!

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!

I have superimposed images to assist you as you attempt to comprehend the wonderful reality and magnitude of meaning of each scripture I have chosen to use!: The section titles beginning with the one right below are some of those used by Elder Oaks in his talk you have just experienced.


Jesus is the Only Begotten Son (and is in the exact image of his actual father: God Our Eternal Father)

Mary Holding Her Baby Jesus Whose Actual Father was Our and Jesus' Heavenly Father of our spirits.
John 3: 16 ¶ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Christ's Image.   -By Heinrich Hofmann.
John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

II Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

JESUS IS THE CREATOR (Along with His Father):

John 1: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

  2 The same was in the beginning with God.

  3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.


John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

Moses and the Brass Serpent. -by Judith Mehr
Numbers 21:8 And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

  9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. (The Brass Serpent Represented Jesus Christ!)

Jesus Christ Visits The Americas -by John Scott

3Nephi 11:10 Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world.

  11 And behold, I am the light and the life of the world; and I have drunk out of that bitter cup which the Father hath given me, and have glorified the Father in taking upon me the sins of the world, in the which I have suffered the will of the Father in all things from the beginning.

  12 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words the whole multitude fell to the earth; for they remembered that it had been prophesied among them that Christ should show himself unto them after his ascension into heaven.

  13 And it came to pass that the Lord spake unto them saying:

  14 Arise and come forth unto me, that ye may thrust your hands into my side, and also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands and in my feet, that ye may know that I am the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth, and have been slain for the sins of the world.
Christ and the Book of Mormon Children. -by Del Parson

John 10:28; And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

And He Healed Them All Every One. -by Gary Kapp
 John 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.


Peace Be Still -by Arnold Friberg

Mark 4:38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

  39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

  40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

  41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
