Passage: Alma 19:9 - Alma 19:29

9 Yea, and whosoever murdereth against the light and knowledge of God, it is not easy for him to obtain forgiveness, Yea, I say unto you my son, that it is not easy for him to obtain a forgiveness!
10 And now my son, I would to God that ye had not been guilty of so great a crime;
11 I would not dwell upon your crimes to harrow up your soul, if it were not for your good;
12 But behold, ye cannot hide your crimes from God, And except ye repent, they will stand as a testimony against you at the last day.
13 Now my son, I would that ye should repent and forsake your sins and go no more after the lusts of your eyes, but cross yourself in all these things, For except ye do this, ye can in no wise inherit the kingdom of God;
14 O remember, and take it upon you and cross yourself in these things.
15 And I command you to take it upon you to counsel your elder brothers in your undertakings, For behold, thou art in thy youth and ye stand in need to be nourished by your brothers;
16 And give heed to their counsel; Suffer not yourself to be led away by any vain or foolish thing, Suffer not that the devil lead away your heart again after those wicked harlots.
17 Behold, O my son, how great iniquity ye brought upon the Zoramites! For when they saw your conduct, they would not believe in my words.
18 And now the Spirit of the Lord doth say unto me: "Command thy children to do good, lest they lead away the hearts of many people to destruction."
19 Therefore, I command you, my son, in the fear of God, that ye refrain from your iniquities, That ye turn to the Lord with all your mind, might and strength, That ye lead away the hearts of no more to do wickedly;
20 But rather return unto them and acknowledge your faults and retain that wrong which ye have done; Seek not after riches nor the vain things of this world, For behold, you cannot carry them with you.
21 And now my son, I would say somewhat unto you concerning the coming of Christ-
22 Behold, I say unto you that it is He that surely shall come to take away the sins of the world, Yea, He cometh to declare glad tidings of salvation unto His people.
23 And now my son, this was the ministry unto which ye were called- To declare these glad tidings unto this people, To prepare their minds, or rather, that salvation might come unto them, that they may prepare the minds of their children to hear the word at the time of His coming.
24 And now I will ease your mind somewhat on this subject. Behold, you marvel why these things should be known so long beforehand;
25 Behold, I say unto you, is not a soul at this time as precious unto God as a soul will be at the time of His coming?
26 Is it not as necessary that the plan of redemption should be made known unto this people as well as unto their children?
27 Is it not as easy at this time for the Lord to send His angel to declare those glad tidings unto us as unto our children or as after the time of His coming?
28 Now my son, here is somewhat more I would say unto thee, For I perceive that thy mind is worried concerning the resurrection of the dead;
29 Behold, I say unto you that there is no resurrection- Or I would say in other words, that this mortal does not put on immortality, this corruption does not put on incorruption- Until after the coming of Christ;

"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.
