Post 47c: As Those of You Who Have Been Reading My Recently Renamed Blog Have Surely Begun to Realize, I Have Chosen a Unique and Continuing Pattern for My Blog Posts Which I have Been Implementing the Past Six Weeks Where I Invite You to Listen to an Apostle or Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Bear Witness of the Lord Jesus Christ and give Instruction on Righteous Living in an "LDS Church" General Conference Talk. I Then Illustrate With Paintings or Photographs, the Scriptures and Other References Which Each of Those Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ Most Often List in Their Notes at the End of their Talks. Whether You are a Staunch Member of this Church or are a Member of Another Church or Do Not Belong to Any Church, This Growing Series of Blog Posts Can Assist You in Desiring to Remain a Faithful Member or in Becoming a Member of Jesus' Only True and Authorized Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

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!

Before you activate Link #2 which will allow you to experience first hand Elder Ballard's April 2013 Conference address, I invite you to now experience my very first blog post.

You are welcome to click on this following link #1 now!

 After clicking on link #2 found directly below these three paragraphs, I suggest you click on the white arrow you will see on your internet screen right next to the picture of Elder Ballard. That will allow you to listen to Elder M. Russell Ballard, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles deliver his April 2013 General Conference speech in which he testifies of and tells about Teachings of Your and Our Lord Jesus Christ! 

I must mention that it was Elder Ballard, in a talk he gave at the Graduation at BYU Hawaii in December 2007, who advised members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to begin blogging about our Church and its teachings that caused me to begin blogging on Sunday, March 16, 2008. By the way, I was not there in Hawaii listening to his very significant speech, I listened to it on the Internet several weeks after he gave it!

Here is the link to Elder Ballard's April 2013 General Conference (of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which I invite you to click on  and fully experience: (Remember to click on the white arrow after the Conference  Speech's  Beginning page with Elder Ballard's picture on it, is on your screen.) 


Now I begin illustrating the scriptures which Elder Ballard mentions throughout his April 1213 Conference Address:

Pearl of Great Price, Moses 1:33: And worlds without number have I created; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the Son I created them, which is mine Only Begotten.

Doctrine and Covenants 81:4 And in doing these things thou (Joseph Smith) wilt do the greatest good unto thy fellow beings, and wilt promote the glory of him who is your Lord (Jesus Christ).

5 Wherefore, be faithful; stand in the office which I have appointed unto you; succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees.

Jesus said: "If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink" (John 7:37)

"Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life" (John 4:14)

"I am the light of the world: he that followeth me. . . shall have the light of life" (John 8:12)

Joseph Smith taught, "The Priesthood is an everlasting principle, and existed with God from eternity, and will to eternity , without beginning of days or end of years" (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith (2007), p. 104).
