Passage: Alma 17:54 - Alma 17:64

54 For, behold, the Lord saw that His people began to work in darkness, yea, work secret murders and abominations; Therefore, the Lord said if they did not repent, they should be destroyed from off the face of the earth.
55 And the Lord said: "I will prepare unto My servant Gazelem a stone which shall shine forth in darkness unto light, That I may discover unto My people which serve Me- That I may discover unto them the works of their brethren- Yea, their secret works, their works of darkness and their wickedness and abominations."
56 And now, my son, these directors were prepared that the word of God might be fulfilled which He spake, saying: "I will bring forth out of darkness unto light all their secret works and their abominations;
57 And, except they repent, I will destroy them from off the face of the earth; And I will bring to light all their secrets and abominations unto every nation that shall hereafter possess the land."
58 And now my son, we see that they did not repent, Therefore, they have been destroyed; And thus far the word of God hath been fulfilled, Yea, their secret abominations have been brought out of darkness and made known unto us.
59 And now my son, I command you that ye retain all their oaths and their covenants and their agreements in their secret abominations; Yea, and all their signs and their wonders ye shall retain from this people, that they know them not, Lest peradventure they should fall into darkness also and be destroyed;
60 For behold, there is a curse upon all this land that destruction shall come upon all those workers of darkness-according to the power of God- when they are fully ripe. Therefore, I desire that this people might not be destroyed;
61 Therefore, ye shall keep these secret plans of their oaths and their covenants from this people, And only their wickedness and their murders and their abominations shall ye make known unto them,
62 And ye shall teach them to abhor such wickedness and abominations and murders, And ye shall also teach them that these people were destroyed on account of their wickedness and abominations and their murders;
63 For behold, they murdered all the prophets of the Lord which came among them to declare unto them concerning their iniquities, And the blood of those which they murdered did cry unto the Lord their God for vengeance upon those which were their murderers.
64 And thus the judgments of God did come upon these workers of darkness and secret combinations; Yea, and cursed be the land forever and ever unto those workers of darkness and secret combinations, even unto destruction, except they repent before they are fully ripe.

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
