Therefore, as many as have come to this-ye know of yourselves-are firm and steadfast in the faith and in the things wherewith they have been made free.
"And ye know also that they have buried their weapons of war, And they fear to take them up lest by any means they shall sin; Yea, ye can see that they fear to sin.
"For behold, they will suffer themselves that they be trodden down and slain by their enemies and will not lift their swords against them; And this because of their faith in Christ.
"And now because of their steadfastness-when they do believe in that thing which they do believe- For because of their firmness when they are once enlightened, Behold, the Lord shall bless them and prolong their days, notwithstanding their iniquity;
Yea, even if they should dwindle in unbelief, the Lord shall prolong their days until the time shall come which hath been spoken of by our fathers- And also by the prophet Zenos, and many other prophets- Concerning the restoration of our brethren the Lamanites again, to the knowledge of the truth.
"Yea, I say unto you that in the latter times, the promises of the Lord hath been extended to our brethren the Lamanites; 103
And notwithstanding the many afflictions which they shall have, And notwithstanding they shall be driven to and fro upon the face of the earth and be hunted and shall be smitten and scattered abroad, having no place for refuge, The Lord shall be merciful unto them;
And this is according to the prophecy that they shall again be brought to the true knowledge- Which is knowledge of their Redeemer and their great and their true Shepherd- And be numbered among His sheep.
"Therefore, I say unto you, it shall be better for them than for you, except ye repent.
"For behold, had the mighty works been shown unto them which have been shown unto you- Yea, unto them which have dwindled in unbelief because of the traditions of their fathers- Ye can see of yourselves that they never would again have dwindled in unbelief;
'Therefore,' saith the Lord, 'I will not utterly destroy them, But I will cause that in the days of My wisdom, they shall return again unto Me,' saith the Lord;
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;"
"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.
