Passage: Alma 9:47 - Alma 9:67

47 "And after God had appointed that these things should come unto man, Behold, then He saw that it was expedient that man should know concerning the things whereof He had appointed unto them.
48 "Therefore, He sent angels to converse with them which caused men to behold of His glory;
49 And they began from that time forth to call on His name. "Therefore, God conversed with men and made known unto them the plan of redemption which had been prepared from the foundation of the world;
50 And this He made known unto them according to their faith and repentance and their holy works.
51 "Wherefore, He gave commandments unto men, they having first transgressed the first commandments as to things which were temporal and becoming as gods, knowing good from evil, Placing themselves in a state to act, or being placed in a state to act, according to their wills and pleasures, whether to do evil or to do good.
52 "Therefore, God gave unto them commandments, after having made known unto them the plan of redemption, that they should not do evil, The penalty thereof being a second death which was an everlasting death as to things pertaining unto righteousness,
53 For on such the plan of redemption could have no power, for the works of justice could not be destroyed according to the supreme goodness of God.
54 "But God did call on men in the name of His Son, this being the plan of redemption which was laid, saying: 'If ye will repent and harden not your hearts, then will I have mercy upon you through Mine Only Begotten Son;
55 Therefore, whosoever repenteth and hardeneth not his heart, he shall have claim on mercy through Mine Only Begotten Son unto a remission of their sins, And these shall enter into My rest;
56 And whosoever will harden his heart and will do iniquity, behold, I swear in My wrath that they shall not enter into My rest.'
57 "And now my brethren, behold I say unto you, that if ye will harden your hearts ye shall not enter into the rest of the Lord;
58 Therefore, your iniquity provoketh Him, that He sendeth down His wrath upon you as in the first provocation,
59 Yea, according to His word in the last provocation, as well as in the first, to the everlasting destruction of your souls, Therefore, according to His word, unto the last death as well as the first.
60 "And now my brethren, seeing we know these things and they are true, Let us repent and harden not our hearts, that we provoke not the Lord our God to pull down His wrath upon us in these His second commandments which He hath given unto us,
61 But let us enter into the rest of God which is prepared according to His word.
62 "And again my brethren, I would cite your minds forward to the time which the Lord God gave these commandments unto His children;
63 And I would that ye should remember that the Lord God ordained priests after His holy order which was after the order of His Son, to teach these things unto the people;
64 And those priests were ordained after the order of His Son in a manner that thereby the people might know in what manner to look forward to His Son for redemption.
65 "And this is the manner after which they were ordained, being called and prepared from the foundation of the world according to the foreknowledge of God, On account of their exceeding faith and good works, in the first place being left to choose good or evil-
66 "Therefore they, having chosen good and exercising exceeding great faith, are called with a holy calling, Yea, with that holy calling which was prepared with, and according to, a preparatory redemption for such,
67 And thus they having been called to this holy calling on account of their faith- "While others would reject the Spirit of God on account of the hardness of their hearts and blindness of their minds, While, if it had not been for this, they might have had as great privilege as their brethren;
