Passage: Alma 9:54 - Alma 10:1
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;
68 Or in fine, in the first place they were on the same standing with their brethren- "Thus this holy calling being prepared from the foundation of the world for such as would not harden their hearts, Being in and through the atonement of the Only Begotten Son which was prepared;
69 And thus being called by this holy calling and ordained unto the high priesthood of the holy order of God, to teach His commandments unto the children of men, that they also might enter into His rest,
70 This high priesthood being after the order of His Son, which order was from the foundation of the world,
71 Or in other words, being without beginning of days or end of years, being prepared from eternity to all eternity according to His foreknowledge of all things-
72 "Now they were ordained after this manner, being called with a holy calling and ordained with a holy ordinance, And taking upon themselves the high priesthood of the holy order, which calling and ordinance and high priesthood is without beginning or end.
73 "Thus they become high priests forever after the order of the Son of-the Only Begotten of-the Father, which is without beginning of days or end of years, which is full of grace, equity and truth. "And thus it is. Amen."
1 "Now as I said concerning the holy order, or this high priesthood, there were many which were ordained and became high priests of God;
