Nay, ye cannot say this, For that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, That same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world.
"For behold, if ye have procrastinated the day of your repentance, even until death, Behold, ye have become subjected to the spirit of the devil, And he doth seal you his;
Therefore, the Spirit of the Lord hath withdrawn from you and hath no place in you, And the devil hath all power over you; And this is the final state of the wicked.
"And this I know because the Lord hath said He dwelleth not in unholy temples, But in the hearts of the righteous doth He dwell;
Yea, and He hath also said that the righteous should sit down in His kingdom to go no more out, But their garments should be made white through the blood of the Lamb.
"And now my beloved brethren, I desire that ye should remember these things, And that ye should work out your salvation with fear before God, And that ye should no more deny the coming of Christ, That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, But that ye receive it and take upon you the name of Christ, That ye humble yourselves even to the dust and worship God in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth, 238
And that ye live in thanksgiving daily for the many mercies and blessings which He doth bestow upon you. "Yea, and I also exhort you, my brethren, that ye be watchful unto prayer continually, That ye may not be led away by the temptations of the devil, That he may not overpower you, That ye may not become his subjects at the last day; For behold, he rewardeth you no good thing.
"And now my beloved brethren, I would exhort you to have patience and that ye bear with all manner of afflictions, That ye do not revile against those who do cast you out because of your exceeding poverty, lest ye become sinners like unto them, But that ye have patience and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions."

Yea, and the rest of the brethren, after they had preached the word unto the Zoramites, also came over into the Land of Jershon.
And it came to pass that after the more popular part of the Zoramites had consulted together concerning the words which had been preached unto them, They were angry because of the word, for it did destroy their craft; Therefore, they would not hearken unto the words.

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.
