154 And when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves: 'It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul, Yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, Yea, and it beginneth to be delicious to me.' 155 "Now behold, would not this increase your faith? I say unto you, Yea; Nevertheless, it hath not grown up to a perfect knowledge. 156 "But behold, as the seed swelleth and sprouteth and beginneth to grow- And then ye must needs say that the seed is good, For behold, it swelleth and sprouteth and beginneth to grow- 157 And now behold, will not this strengthen your faith? Yea, it will strengthen your faith, For ye will say, 'I know that this is a good seed, For behold, it sprouteth and beginneth to grow.' 158 "And now behold, are ye sure that this is a good seed? I say unto you, yea, for every seed bringeth forth unto its own likeness; Therefore, if a seed groweth, it is good, But if it groweth not, behold, it is not good, Therefore, it is cast away. 159 "And now, behold, because ye have tried the experiment and planted the seed and it swelleth and sprouteth and beginneth to grow, Ye must needs know that the seed is good. 160 "And now behold, is your knowledge perfect? Yea, your knowledge is perfect in that thing and your faith is dormant; 161 And this because you know, for ye know that the word hath swelled your souls, And ye also know that it hath sprouted up, that your understanding doth begin to be enlightened and your mind doth begin to expand. 162 "O then, is not this real? I say unto you, yea, because it is light, And whatsoever is light is good, because it is discernible; Therefore, ye must know that it is good. 163 "And now behold, after ye have tasted this light, is your knowledge perfect? Behold, I say unto you, Nay; Neither must ye lay aside your faith, For ye have only exercised your faith to plant the seed, that ye might try the experiment to know if the seed were good. 164 "And behold, as the tree beginneth to grow, ye will say: 'Let us nourish it with great care, that it may get root, that it may grow up and bring forth fruit unto us.' 165 "And now behold, if ye nourish it with much care, it will get root and grow up and bring forth fruit; 166 But if ye neglect the tree and take no thought for its nourishment, Behold, it will not get any root; And when the heat of the sun cometh and scorcheth it, and because it hath no root, it withereth away, And ye pluck it up and cast it out. 167 "Now this is not because the seed was not good, Neither is it because the fruit thereof would not be desirable; 168 But it is because your ground is barren and ye will not nourish the tree; Therefore, ye cannot have the fruit thereof. 169 "And thus it is if ye will not nourish the word, looking forward with an eye of faith to the fruit thereof, Ye can never pluck of the fruit of the tree of life; 170 But if ye will nourish the word- Yea, nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence and with patience- looking forward to the fruit thereof, And it shall take root; And behold, it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life! 171 "And because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, Behold, by and by, ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all that is sweet, and which is white above all that is white, yea, and pure above all that is pure, 172 And ye shall feast upon this fruit, even until ye are filled that ye hunger not, neither shall ye thirst; 173 Then my brethren, ye shall reap the rewards of your faith and your diligence and patience and longsuffering, waiting for the tree to bring forth fruit unto you." 174 Now after Alma had spoken these words, they sent forth unto him desiring to know whether they should believe in one God, that they might obtain this fruit of which he had spoken, Or how they should plant the seed, or the word of which he had spoken, which he said must be planted in their hearts, Or in what manner they should begin to exercise their faith.
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.
