For it is because that ye are cast out that ye are despised of your brethren, Because of your exceeding poverty that ye are brought to a lowliness of heart, For ye are necessarily brought to be humble.
"And now, because ye are compelled to be humble, blessed are ye, For a man sometimes, if he is compelled to be humble, seeketh repentance.
"And now surely, whosoever repenteth shall find mercy, And he that findeth mercy and endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.
"And now as I said unto you that because ye were compelled to be humble, ye were blessed, Do ye not suppose that they are more blessed who truly humble themselves because of the word?
Yea, he that truly humbleth himself and repenteth of his sins and endureth to the end, the same shall be blessed, Yea, much more blessed than they who art compelled to be humble because of their exceeding poverty; Therefore, blessed are they who humbleth themselves without being compelled to be humble,
Or rather, in other words, Blessed is he that believeth in the word of God and is baptized without stubbornness of heart, Yea, without being brought to know the word, or even compelled to know, before they will believe. 139
"Yea, there are many which do say, 'If thou wilt show unto us a sign from heaven, then we shall know of a surety, then we shall believe.'
"Now I ask, is this faith? Behold, I say unto you, Nay, For if a man knoweth a thing, he hath no cause to believe, for he knoweth it.
"And now how much more cursed is he that knoweth the will of God and doeth it not, than he that only believeth, or only hath cause to believe, and falleth into transgression? Now of this thing ye must judge.
"Behold, I say unto you that it is on the one hand even as it is on the other, And it shall be unto every man according to his work.
"And now as I said concerning faith, Faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; Therefore, if ye have faith, ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.
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.
