"Wherefore my sons, I would that ye would remember, Yea, I would that ye would hearken unto my words.
"O that ye would awake! Awake from a deep sleep, yea, even from the sleep of hell, And shake off the awful chains by which ye are bound, which are the chains which bind the children of men, that they are carried away captive down to the eternal gulf of misery and wo!
Awake and arise from the dust and hear the words of a trembling parent whose limbs ye must soon lay down in the cold and silent grave from whence no traveler can return- A few more days and I go the way of all the earth;
But behold, the Lord hath redeemed my soul from hell; I have beheld His glory and I am encircled about eternally in the arms of His love!
"And I desire that ye should remember to observe the statutes and the judgments of the Lord; Behold, this hath been the anxiety of my soul from the beginning;
My heart hath been weighed down with sorrow from time to time, For I have feared-lest for the hardness of your hearts, lest the Lord your God should come out in the fullness of His wrath upon you- that ye be cut off and destroyed forever, 32
Or that a cursing should come upon you for the space of many generations, And ye are visited by sword and by famine, And are hated and are led according to the will and captivity of the devil.
"O my sons, that these things might not come upon you, But that ye might be a choice and a favored people of the Lord!
"But behold, His will be done, for His ways are righteousness forever; And He hath said that, 'Inasmuch as ye shall keep My commandments, ye shall prosper in the land, But inasmuch as ye will not keep My commandments, ye shall be cut off from My presence.'
"And now, that my soul might have joy in you and that my heart might leave this world with gladness because of you, that I might not be brought down with grief and sorrow to the grave,
Arise from the dust, my sons, and be men! And be determined in one mind and in one heart, united in all things, That ye may not come down into captivity, That ye may not be cursed with a sore cursing,
Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
