The first scriptural use of the term general authority was in minutes of a meeting for the organization of the Presiding High Council in 1834.
The President of the Church and members of the Quorum of the Twelve are typically called for the remainder of one's life, although there have been more than a dozen instances when an apostle has been released from his service in the Quorum of the Twelve.
In the LDS church General Authorities are members of the first presidency, a quorum of the twelve apostles, or a presidency of seventy and first two quorums, or the three man presiding bishopric with a presiding bishop and two counselors.

Brigham Young, then President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, presented the proposition that the Twelve, ordained apostles who held all the keys necessary to govern the Church, should be sustained as the authorized leaders in the absence of Joseph Smith.
After describing the First Presidency ("three Presiding High Priests, chosen by the body, appointed and ordained to that office, and upheld by the confidence, faith, and prayer of the church"), that revelation affirmed that the Twelve Apostles "form a quorum, equal in authority and power to the three presidents previously mentioned" (D&C 107:22–24).
But the death of the president, thereby disorganizing the presidency and automatically releasing the president´s counselors, bestows on the Quorum of the Twelve the required authorization to exercise the keys they already possess and assume full responsibility for governing the Church—including the reorganization of the First Presidency.

President Taylor is steadily failing, yet he entertains hope concerning himself and has never intimated in any way that he thought his case critical.
If it would add to President Taylor['s] comfort [and] happiness to be released, I would forego every advantage of which I speak, but he is as comfortable now in his dying condition away from his family as he would be if he were surrounded by them.
If President Taylor should die under present circumstances, it would be much easier for the administration to feel shocked at his fate and to justify itself for extending liberty to Brothers Woodruff, Wells, Snow and others, it would not then have the appearance to the public which such action would have now.
