And many highways shall be broken up, And many cities shall become desolate, And many graves shall be opened and shall yield up many of their dead; And many saints shall appear unto many.
"And behold, thus hath the angel spoken unto me; For he said unto me that there should be thunderings and lightnings for the space of many hours;
And he said unto me that while the thunder and the lightning lasted and the tempest, that these things should be, And that darkness should cover the face of the whole earth for the space of three days.
"And the angel said unto me that many shall see greater things than these, To the intent that they might believe that these signs and these wonders should come to pass upon all the face of this land; To the intent that there should be no cause for unbelief among the children of men;
And this to the intent that whosoever will believe, might be saved, And that whosoever will not believe, a righteous judgment might come upon them; And also, if they are condemned, they bring upon themselves their own condemnation.
"And now remember, remember, my brethren, That whosoever perisheth, perisheth unto himself; And whosoever doeth iniquity, doeth it unto himself; For behold, ye are free-ye are permitted to act for yourselves; For behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and He hath made you free- 86
He hath given unto you that ye might know good from evil, And He hath given unto you that ye might choose life or death; And ye can do good and be restored unto that which is good, Or have that which is good restored unto you; Or ye can do evil and have that which is evil restored unto you.
"And now my beloved brethren, Behold, I declare unto you that except ye shall repent, your houses shall be left unto you desolate; Yea, except ye repent, your women shall have great cause to mourn in the day that they shall give suck;
For ye shall attempt to flee and there shall be no place for refuge. "Yea, and wo unto them which are with child! for they shall be heavy and cannot flee; Therefore, they shall be trodden down and shall be left to perish.
"Yea, wo unto this people which are called the people of Nephi! Except they shall repent when they shall see all those signs and wonders which shall be showed unto them;
For behold, they have been a chosen people of the Lord; Yea, the people of Nephi hath He loved; And also hath He chastened them, yea, in the days of their iniquities hath He chastened them because He loveth them.
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.
