The Lord has always called those to stand as officers.(2 Chronicles 23:18) In the church, there is the Prophet, who acts as the leading General under the direction of Jesus Christ. The Prophet has two counselors (Exodus 17:12) who would stand as Lieutenant Generals. The the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles would be Major Generals. Those who hold the office of Seventy (Luke 10:1) would be Brigadier Generals. Stake Presidents are like Colonels, with their counselors being Lieutenant Colonels. Bishops would stand as Majors, with their counselors being Captains. An Elders Quorum President would be a 1st Lieutenant, and his counselors standing as 2nd Lieutenants. (Matthew 21:23) This is the design that has been established by God to govern the affairs of His church, and just as in a worldly army it all starts at the top and then filters down.

Christ has set up His church the same way, there are several organizations designed to best help the people in that area. They include the Elders Quorum for men over 18, Relief Society for women over 18, Young Mens and Young Womens for ages 12 to 18, Primary for the kids 2 to 12, and a Nursery.
The Book of Mormon and the Bible each teach and testify of Christ. It is by reading these books of scripture which were written by Prophets, or Spiritual Generals, that we learn the battle plans and how to follow our Savior.
