93 But I know my guilt-I transgressed Thy law, and my transgressions are mine; And the devil hath obtained me, that I am a prey to his awful misery." 94 But behold, my brethren, is it expedient that I should awake you to an awful reality of these things? 95 Would I harrow up your souls if your minds were pure? 96 Would I be plain unto you, according to the plainness of the truth, if ye were freed from sin? 97 Behold, if ye were holy, I would speak unto you of holiness, But as ye are not holy, and ye look upon me as a teacher, it must needs be expedient that I teach you the consequences of sin. 98 Behold, my soul abhorreth sin, And my heart delighteth in righteousness, And I will praise the holy name of my God! 99 Come, my brethren: "Everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters; And he that hath no money, come, buy and eat. Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 100 Wherefore, do not spend money for that which is of no worth, Nor your labor for that which cannot satisfy." 101 Hearken diligently unto me and remember the words which I have spoken, And come unto the Holy One of Israel 102 and feast upon that which perisheth not, neither can be corrupted: "And let your soul delight in fatness." 103 Behold, my beloved brethren, remember the words of your God- Pray unto Him continually by day and give thanks unto His holy name by night; 104 Let your hearts rejoice and behold how great the covenants of the Lord, And how great His condescensions unto the children of men; 105 And because of His greatness and His grace and mercy, He hath promised unto us that our seed shall not utterly be destroyed, according to the flesh, but that He would preserve them; And in future generations they shall become a righteous branch unto the house of Israel. 106 And now my brethren, I would speak unto you more, But on the morrow I will declare unto you the remainder of my words. Amen.
2 Nephi 7 1 And now I, Jacob, speak unto you again, my beloved brethren, concerning this righteous branch of which I have spoken; 2 For behold, the promises which we have obtained are promises unto us, according to the flesh. 3 Wherefore, as it hath been shown unto me that many of our children shall perish in the flesh because of unbelief, nevertheless, God will be merciful unto many, 4 And our children shall be restored, that they may come to that which will give them the true knowledge of their Redeemer. 5 Wherefore, as I said unto you, it must needs be expedient that Christ-for in the last night the angel spake unto me that this should be His name-that He should come among the Jews, among they which are the more wicked part of the world, 6 And they shall crucify Him, for thus it behooveth our God; 7 And there is none other nation on earth that would crucify their God,
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.
