For hath not the Lord expressly promised and firmly decreed that if ye will rebel against Him, that ye shall utterly be destroyed from off the face of the earth?
"And now for this cause-that ye may not be destroyed- the Lord hath sent His angel to visit many of His people, declaring unto them that they must go forth and cry mightily unto this people, saying: 'Repent ye, repent ye! for the kingdom of heaven is nigh at hand;
And not many days hence, the Son of God shall come in His glory; And His glory shall be the glory of the Only Begotten of the Father, Full of grace, equity and truth, Full of patience, mercy and longsuffering, Quick to hear the cries of His people and to answer their prayers.
'And behold, He cometh to redeem those who will be baptized unto repentance through faith on His name.
'Therefore, prepare ye the way of the Lord, For the time is at hand that every man shall reap a reward of their works according to that which they have been:
If they have been righteous, they shall reap the salvation of their souls according to the power and deliverance of Jesus Christ; 44
And if they have been evil, they shall reap the damnation of their souls according to the power and captivation of the devil.'
"Now behold, this is the voice of the angel crying unto the people.
"And now my beloved brethren, for ye are my brethren and ye had ought to be beloved, And ye had ought to bring forth works which are meet for repentance, Seeing that your hearts have been grossly hardened against the word of God and seeing that ye are a lost and a fallen people."
Now it came to pass that when I, Alma, had spoken these words, Behold, the people were wroth with me because I said unto them that they were a hard-hearted and a stiff-necked people;
And also because I said unto them that they were a lost and a fallen people, they were angry with me and sought to lay their hands upon me, that they might cast me into prison.
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.
