Passage: Alma 21:135 - Alma 21:145

135 Now the Nephites were taught to defend themselves against their enemies, even to the shedding of blood if it were necessary;
136 Yea, and they were also taught never to give an offense, Yea, and never to raise the sword, except it were against an enemy, except it were to preserve their lives.
137 And this was their faith- That by so doing, God would prosper them in the land, Or in other words, if they were faithful in keeping the commandments of God, that He would prosper them in the land, Yea, warn them to flee or to prepare for war, according to their danger,
138 And also that God would make it known unto them whither they should go to defend themselves against their enemies, And by so doing the Lord would deliver them. And this was the faith of Moroni,
139 And his heart did glory in it- Not in the shedding of blood, but in doing good- in preserving his people, yea, in keeping the commandments of God, yea, and resisting iniquity.
140 Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been and were and ever would be like unto Moroni, Behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever, Yea, the devil would never have any power over the hearts of the children of men;
141 Behold, he was a man like unto Ammon, the son of Mosiah, Yea, and even the other sons of Mosiah, Yea, and also Alma and his sons, for they were all men of God.
142 Now behold, Helaman and his brethren were no less serviceable unto the people than was Moroni, For they did preach the word of God, And they did baptize unto repentance all men whosoever would hearken unto their words.
143 And thus they went forth; And the people did humble themselves because of their words, insomuch that they were highly favored of the Lord. And thus they were free from wars and contentions among themselves, yea, even for the space of four years.
144 But, as I have said, in the latter end of the nineteenth year, notwithstanding their peace amongst themselves, They were compelled reluctantly to contend with their brethren the Lamanites;
145 Yea, and in fine, their wars never did cease for the space of many years with the Lamanites, notwithstanding their much reluctance.

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
