18 "Now, we see that the word of the Lord hath been verified in this thing, And the Lamanites have been cut off from His presence from the beginning of their transgressions in the land. 19 "Nevertheless, I say unto you that it shall be more tolerable for them in the day of judgment than for you, if ye remain in your sins, 20 Yea, and even more tolerable for them in this life, than for you, except ye repent, For there are many promises which are extended to the Lamanites. 21 "For it is because of the traditions of their fathers that causes them to remain in their state of ignorance, Therefore, the Lord will be merciful unto them and prolong their existence in the land; 22 And at some period of time they will be brought to believe in His word and to know of the incorrectness of the traditions of their fathers; 23 And many of them will be saved, for the Lord will be merciful unto all who call on His name. 24 "But behold, I say unto you that if ye persist in your wickedness, that your days shall not be prolonged in the land, for the Lamanites shall be sent upon you; 25 And if ye repent not, they shall come in a time when you know not and ye shall be visited with utter destruction; 26 And it shall be according to the fierce anger of the Lord, For He will not suffer you that ye shall live in your iniquities to destroy His people. 27 "I say unto you, nay, He would rather suffer that the Lamanites might destroy all this people which are called the people of Nephi, If it were possible that they could fall into sins and trans- gressions after having had so much light and so much knowledge given unto them of the Lord their God, 28 Yea, after having been such a highly favored people of the Lord, Yea, after having been favored above every other nation, kindred, tongue or people, 29 After having had all things made known unto them, according to their desires and their faith and prayers, of that which has been and which is and which is to come, 30 Having been visited by the Spirit of God, Having conversed with angels, And having been spoken unto by the voice of the Lord, 31 And having the spirit of prophecy and the spirit of revelation and also many gifts-the gift of speaking with tongues and the gift of preaching and the gift of the Holy Ghost and the gift of translation, 32 Yea, and after having been delivered of God out of the Land of Jerusalem by the hand of the Lord, 33 Having been saved from famine and from sicknesses and all manner of diseases of every kind, 34 And they having been waxed strong in battle that they might not be destroyed, Having been brought out of bondage time after time, And having been kept and preserved until now; And they have been prospered until they are rich in all manner of things. 35 "And now behold I say unto you, that if this people, who have received so many blessings from the hand of the Lord, should transgress contrary to the light and knowledge which they do have- 36 I say unto you, that if this be the case-that if they should fall into transgressions, That it would be far more tolerable for the Lamanites than for them. 37 "For behold, the promises of the Lord are extended to the Lamanites, but they are not unto you if ye transgress; 38 For hath not the Lord expressly promised and firmly decreed that if ye will rebel against Him, that ye shall utterly be destroyed from off the face of the earth?
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.
