And it came to pass that he went out and bowed himself down upon the earth and cried mightily to his God in behalf of his people, yea, those which were about to be destroyed because of their faith in the tradition of their fathers.
And it came to pass that he cried mightily unto the Lord all that day; And behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him, saying: "Lift up your head and be of good cheer, for behold, the time is at hand; And on this night shall the sign be given,
And on the morrow come I into the world to show unto the world that I will fulfill all that I have caused to be spoken by the mouth of My holy prophets.
"Behold, I come unto My own to fulfill all things which I have made known unto the children of men from the foundation of the world, And to do the will both of the Father and of the Son- of the Father because of Me, and of the Son because of My flesh.
"And behold, the time is at hand, And this night shall the sign be given."
And it came to pass that the words which came unto Nephi were fulfilled according as they had been spoken. 17
For he beheld at the going down of the sun there was no darkness, And the people began to be astonished because there was no darkness when the night came.
And there were many which had not believed the words of the prophets fell to the earth and became as if they were dead, For they knew that the great plan of destruction which they had laid for those who had believed in the words of the prophets had been frustrated, for the sign which had been given was already at hand; And they began to know that the Son of God must shortly appear.
Yea, and in fine, all the people upon the face of the whole earth-from the west to the east, both in the Land North and in the Land South-were so exceedingly astonished that they fell to the earth,
For they knew that the prophets had testified of these things for many years and that the sign which had been given was already at hand; And they began to fear because of their iniquity and their unbelief.
And it came to pass that there was no darkness in all that night, but it was as light as though it was midday.
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.
