8 and went over upon the east of the River Sidon into the Valley of Gideon, There having been a city built which was called the City of Gideon, which was in the valley that was called Gideon, being called after the man which was slain by the hand of Nehor with the sword. 9 And Alma went and began to declare the word of God unto the church which was established in the Valley of Gideon, According to the revelation of the truth of the word which had been spoken by his fathers, 10 And according to the spirit of prophecy which was in him, According to the testimony of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, which should come for to redeem His people from their sins, And the holy order by which he was called. And thus it is written. Amen.
Alma 5 Intro The words of Alma which he delivered to the people in Gideon, according to his own record. 1 Behold, my beloved brethren, seeing that I have been permitted to come unto you, Therefore, I attempt to address you in my language, 2 yea, by my own mouth, Seeing that it is the first time that I have spoken unto you by the words of my mouth, I having been wholly confined to the judgment seat, having had much business that I could not come unto you. 3 And even I could not have come now at this time, were it not that the judgment seat hath been given to another to reign in my stead; And the Lord in much mercy hath granted that I should come unto you. 4 And behold, I have come having great hopes and much desire that I should find that ye had humbled yourselves before God, And that ye had continued in the supplicating of His grace, that I should find that ye were blameless before Him, 5 That I should find that ye were not in the awful dilemma that our brethren were in at Zarahemla, 6 But, blessed be the name of God! that He hath given unto me to know, yea, hath given unto me the exceeding great joy of knowing that they are established again in the way of His righteousness; 7 And I trust, according to the Spirit of God which is in me, that I shall also have joy over you. 8 Nevertheless, I do not desire that my joy over you should come by the cause of so much afflictions and sorrow which I have had for the brethren at Zarahemla; 9 For behold, my joy cometh over them after wading through much afflictions and sorrow. 10 But behold, I trust that ye are not in a state of so much unbelief as were your brethren; 11 I trust that ye are not lifted up in the pride of your hearts; Yea, I trust that ye have not set your hearts upon riches and the vain things of the world; 12 Yea, I trust that you do not worship idols, but that ye do worship the true and the living God, And that ye look forward for the remission of your sins with an everlasting faith which is to come. 13 For behold, I say unto you, there be many things to come; And behold, there is one thing which is of more importance than they all. 14 For behold, the time is not far distant that the Redeemer liveth and cometh among His people. 15 Behold, I do not say that He will come among us at the time of His dwelling in His mortal tabernacle, For behold, the Spirit hath not said unto me that this should be the case; 16 Now as to this thing, I do not know; But this much I do know, that the Lord God hath power to do all things which are according to His word. 17 But behold, the Spirit hath said this much unto me, saying: "Cry unto this people, saying: 'Repent ye, repent ye! and prepare the way of the Lord, And walk in His paths which are strait.'"
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.
