Passage: Ether 5:17 - Ether 5:27

17 And it was by faith that the three disciples obtained a promise that they should not taste of death, And they obtained not the promise until after their faith.
18 And neither at any time hath any wrought miracles until after their faith; Wherefore, they first believed in the Son of God.
19 And there were many whose faith was so exceeding strong, even before Christ came, which could not be kept from within the veil, But truly saw with their eyes the things which they had beheld with an eye of faith and they were glad.
20 And behold, we have seen in this record that one of these was the brother of Jared; For so great was his faith in God that when God put forth His finger, He could not hide it from the sight of the brother of Jared because of his word which he had spoken unto Him, which word he had obtained by faith;

25 "Behold, Thou hast not made us mighty in writing like unto the brother of Jared, For Thou madest him that the things which he wrote were mighty, even as Thou art, unto the overpowering of man to read them;
26 Thou hast also made our words powerful and great, even that we cannot write them; Wherefore, when we write, we behold our weakness and stumble because of the placing of our words; And I fear lest the Gentiles shall mock at our words."
27 And when I had said this, the Lord spake unto me, saying: "Fools mock, but they shall mourn; And My grace is sufficient for the meek that they shall take no advantage of your weakness; And if men come unto Me, I will show unto them their weakness;

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
