Post 48a: As of My Just Previous Blog Post, Post 47z I Have Been Able to Feature Each of the October 2013 General Conference Speeches Given by Present Members of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I Have Now Decided that Until the April 2014 General Conference Has Concluded I Will Select Past Posts to Repeat Whose Subject I Personally Decided Needs to be Repeated. This Week I Am Featuring the Talk Given by President Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles at the General Conference. It Actually Was the Very First of the Blog Posts in Which I Began Fearturing LDS General Conference Talks! Its Topic is: The Mission of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
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 REGULAR
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.
Devoted Study of them 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 areseeking to qualify as our Heavenly Father's worthy
Those enabling Books of Scripture were brought about through the love and wisdom 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 the establishment of 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 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 who opened the way for each of us to learn with certainty throughthose 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 righteousness to which we each attain, 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, J. Neil Birch, Author of this Blog Post as you have been informed in my Introduction, have chosen this week to repeat the first Blog Post I did in this series of posts in which I have featured General Authority Talks of Present Day Apostles and Prophets. It was given by President Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. First I provide you the opportunity of reviewing his personal history: http://www.lds.org/church/leader/boyd-k-packer?lang=eng
Now it is my privilege to provide you with the opportunity of learning from the first blog post in which I featured General Conference Speeches of members of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints and of the Quorum of the Twelve. You may want to return to this blog post after having experienced my previous post 46v just to sing this one hymn from the LDS Hymn Book which I feel matches the subject of President Packer's talk you will have reviewed using the Internet link found just before the link to post 46v below this paragraph. I will look forward to providing you another previous blog post one week from today, February 14, 2014. You may want to consider inviting others who may be nearby to sing the various parts of this hymn: soprano, alto, tenor, and base with you singing the part you feel you should sing. The music is provided in the Internet link I provide.

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.
