Passage: Alma 16:207 - Alma 16:227
207 Behold, I say unto you that I do know that Christ shall come among the children of men to take upon Him the transgressions of His people, And that He shall atone for the sins of the world, For the Lord God hath spoken it.
208 "For it is expedient that an atonement should be made; For according to the great plans of the Eternal God, there must be an atonement made, or else all mankind must unavoidably perish-
209 Yea, all are hardened, Yea, all are fallen and are lost and must perish, except it be through the atonement which it is expedient should be made.
210 "For it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice, Yea, not a sacrifice of man, neither of beast, neither of any manner of fowl, For it shall not be a human sacrifice, But it must be an infinite and an eternal sacrifice.
211 "Now there is not any man that can sacrifice his own blood, which will atone for the sins of another.
212 "Now if a man murdereth, behold, will our law, which is just, take the life of his brother? I say unto you, Nay,
213 But the law requireth the life of him who hath murdered; Therefore, there is nothing which is short of an infinite atonement which will suffice for the sins of the world, Therefore, it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice.
214 "And then shall there be, or it is expedient there should be, a stop to the shedding of blood, Then shall the law of Moses be fulfilled, Yea, it shall all be fulfilled, every jot and tittle, And none shall have passed away.
215 "And behold, this is the whole meaning of the law, every whit a pointing to that great and last sacrifice, And that great and last sacrifice will be the Son of God, yea, infinite and eternal. "And thus He shall bring salvation to all those who shall believe on His name,
216 This being the intent of this last sacrifice: To bring about the bowels of mercy, which overpowereth justice, And bringeth about means unto men that they may have faith unto repentance.
217 "And thus mercy can satisfy the demands of justice and encircles them in the arms of safety, While he that exerciseth no faith unto repentance is exposed to the whole law of the demands of justice; Therefore, only unto him that hath faith unto repentance is brought about the great and eternal plan of redemption.
218 "Therefore, may God grant unto you, my brethren, that ye might begin to exercise your faith unto repentance, That ye begin to call upon His holy name that He would have mercy upon you; Yea, cry unto Him for mercy, for He is mighty to save;
219 Yea, humble yourselves and continue in prayer unto Him- Cry unto Him when ye are in your fields, yea, over all your flocks; Cry unto Him in your houses, yea, over all your household, both morning, midday and evening; Yea, cry unto Him against the power of your enemies; Yea, cry unto Him against the devil which is an enemy to all righteousness;
220 Cry unto Him over the crops of your fields that ye may prosper in them; Cry over the flocks of your fields that they may increase.
221 "But this is not all- Ye must pour out your souls in your closets and your secret places and in your wilderness;
222 Yea, and when you do not cry unto the Lord, Let your hearts be full, drawn out in prayer unto Him continually for your welfare, and also for the welfare of those that are around you.
223 "And now behold, my brethren, I say unto you, do not suppose that this is all, For after ye have done all these things, If ye turn away the needy and the naked, and visit not the sick and afflicted and impart of your substance, if ye have, to those which stand in need-
224 I say unto you, if ye do not any of these things, Behold, your prayer is vain and availeth you nothing, And ye are as hypocrites which do deny the faith;
225 Therefore, if ye do not remember to be charitable, Ye are as dross which the refiners do cast out-it being of no worth-and is trodden underfoot of men.
226 "And now my brethren, I would that after ye have received so many witnesses-seeing that the holy scripture testifies of these things-come forth and bring fruit unto repentance!
227 Yea, I would that ye would come forth and harden not your hearts any longer; For behold, now is the time and the day of your salvation; And therefore, if ye will repent and harden not your hearts, Immediately shall the great plan of redemption be brought about unto you;
