Passage: Alma 15:53 - Alma 15:63

53 Yea, I would declare unto every soul as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, That they should repent and come unto our God, That there might be no more sorrow upon all the face of the earth.
54 But behold, I am a man and do sin in my wish, For I had ought to be content with the things which the Lord hath allotted unto me;
55 I had not ought to harrow up in my desires the firm decree of a just God, For I know that He granteth unto men according to their desires, whether it be unto death or unto life, Yea, I know that He allotteth unto man, yea, decreeth unto them decrees which are unalterable according to their wills, whether it be unto salvation or unto destruction.
56 Yea, and I know that good and evil hath come before all men- Or he that knoweth not good from evil is blameless, But he that knoweth good and evil, to him it is given according to his desires, Whether he desireth good or evil, life or death, joy or remorse of conscience.
57 Now seeing that I know these things, why should I desire more than to perform the work to which I have been called?
58 Why should I desire that I was an angel, that I could speak unto all the ends of the earth?
59 For behold, the Lord doth grant unto all nations, of their own nation and tongue, to teach His word, yea, in wisdom all that He seeth fit that they should have; Therefore, we see that the Lord doth counsel in His wisdom according to that which is just and true.
60 I know that which the Lord hath commanded me and I glory in it; I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me;
61 Yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; And this is my joy.
62 And behold, when I see many of my brethren truly penitent and coming to the Lord their God, then is my soul filled with joy, Then do I remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that He hath heard my prayer, Yea, then do I remember His merciful arm which He extended toward me.
63 Yea, and I also remember the captivity of my fathers, For I surely do know that the Lord did deliver them out of bondage and by this did establish His church; Yea, the Lord God-the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob- did deliver them out of bondage;

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;"

--Ether 1:112

 

"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.

--Zechariah 12:10
