And now all the people of Zarahemla were numbered with the Nephites, And this because the kingdom had been conferred upon none but those which were descendants of Nephi.
And now it came to pass that when Mosiah had made an end of speaking and reading to the people, he desired that Alma should also speak to the people.
And it came to pass that Alma did speak unto them when they were assembled together in large bodies; And he went from one body to another preaching unto the people repentance and faith on the Lord;
And he did exhort the people of Limhi and his brethren, all those that had been delivered out of bondage, that they should remember that it was the Lord that did deliver them.
And it came to pass that after Alma had taught the people many things and had made an end of speaking to them, that King Limhi was desirous that he might be baptized, And all his people were desirous that they might be baptized also;
Therefore, Alma did go forth into the water and did baptize them, Yea, he did baptize them after the manner he did his brethren in the Waters of Mormon; 96
Yea, and as many as he did baptize did belong to the church of God, And this because of their belief on the words of Alma.
And it came to pass that King Mosiah granted unto Alma that he might establish churches throughout all the Land of Zarahemla, And gave him power to ordain priests and teachers over every church.
Now this was done because there were so many people that they could not all be governed by one teacher, Neither could they all hear the word of God in one assembly; Therefore, they did assemble themselves together in different bodies, being called churches,
Every church having their priests and their teachers, And every priest preaching the word according as it was delivered to him by the mouth of Alma.
And thus, notwithstanding there being many churches, they were all one church, yea, even the church of God;
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.
