Passage: Ether 1:55 - Ether 1:65

55 And the Lord said unto the brother of Jared: "What will ye that I should do that ye may have light in your vessels?
56 For behold, ye cannot have windows, for they will be dashed in pieces, Neither shall ye take fire with you, for ye shall not go by the light of fire; For behold, ye shall be as a whale in the midst of the sea, for the mountain waves shall dash upon you.
57 "Nevertheless, I will bring you up again out of the depths of the sea, For the winds have gone forth out of My mouth, and also the rains and the floods have I sent forth;
58 And behold, I prepare you against these things; For howbeit, ye cannot cross this great deep, save I prepare you against the waves of the sea, and the winds which have gone forth, and the floods which shall come;
59 Therefore, what will ye that I should prepare for you, that ye may have light when ye are swallowed up in the depths of the sea?"
60 And it came to pass that the brother of Jared- now the number of the vessels which had been prepared was eight- Therefore, the brother of Jared went forth unto the mount, which they called the Mount Shelem because of its exceeding height, and did molten out of a rock sixteen small stones,
61 And they were white and clear, even as transparent glass; And he did carry them in his hands upon the top of the mount and cried again unto the Lord, saying: "O Lord, Thou hast said that we must be encompassed about by the floods;
62 Now behold, O Lord, and do not be angry with Thy servant because of his weakness before Thee, For we know that Thou art holy and dwellest in the heavens and that we are unworthy before Thee-
63 Because of the fall, our natures have become evil continually- Nevertheless, O Lord, Thou hast given us a commandment that we must call upon Thee, that from Thee we may receive according to our desires.
64 "Behold, O Lord, Thou hast smitten us because of our iniquity and hath driven us forth, And for this many years we have been in the wilderness; Nevertheless, Thou hast been merciful unto us.
65 "O Lord, look upon me in pity and turn away Thine anger from this Thy people, And suffer not that they shall go forth across this raging deep in darkness, But behold these things which I have molten out of the rock.

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
