1 And now it came to pass in the eighty and sixth year, the Nephites did still remain in wickedness- yea, in great wickedness- While the Lamanites did observe strictly to keep the commandments of God according to the law of Moses. 2 And it came to pass that in this year there was one, Samuel, a Lamanite, came into the Land of Zarahemla and began to preach unto the people. 3 And it came to pass that he did preach many days repentance unto the people, And they did cast him out; And he was about to return to his own land, 4 But behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him that he should return again and prophesy unto the people whatsoever things should come into his heart. 5 And it came to pass that they would not suffer that he should enter into the city; Therefore, he went and got upon the wall thereof and stretched forth his hand, And cried with a loud voice and prophesied unto the people whatsoever things the Lord put into his heart. 6 And he said unto them: "Behold, I, Samuel, a Lamanite, do speak the words of the Lord which He doth put into my heart; And behold, He hath put it into my heart to say unto this people that the sword of justice hangeth over this people; And four hundred years passeth not away save the sword of justice falleth upon this people- 7 Yea, heavy destruction awaiteth this people; And it surely cometh unto this people and nothing can save this people, Save it be repentance and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ which surely shall come into the world and shall suffer many things and shall be slain for His people. 8 "And behold, an angel of the Lord hath declared it unto me, And he did bring glad tidings to my soul; 9 And behold, I was sent unto you to declare it unto you also, that ye might have glad tidings; But behold, ye would not receive me. 10 "Therefore, thus saith the Lord: 'Because of the hardness of the hearts of the people of the Nephites, except they repent I will take away My word from them, And I will withdraw My Spirit from them, And I will suffer them no longer, And I will turn the hearts of their brethren against them. 11 'And four hundred years shall not pass away before I will cause that they shall be smitten- Yea, I will visit them with the sword and with famine and with pestilence, 12 Yea, I will visit them in My fierce anger; And there shall be those of the fourth generation which shall live of your enemies to behold your utter destruction; 13 And this shall surely come except ye repent,' saith the Lord, 'And those of the fourth generation shall visit your destruction. 14 'But if ye will repent and return unto the Lord your God, I will turn away Mine anger,' saith the Lord; 'Yea,' thus saith the Lord, 'blessed are they who will repent and turn unto Me. 'But wo unto him that repenteth not! 15 Yea, wo unto this great City of Zarahemla! For behold, it is because of they which are righteous that it is saved; 16 Yea, wo unto this great city! For I perceive,' saith the Lord, 'that there are many, yea, even the more part of this great city that will harden their hearts against Me,' saith the Lord; 'But blessed are they who will repent, for them will I spare. 17 'But behold, if it were not for the righteous which are in this great city, Behold, I would cause that fire should come down out of heaven and destroy it; But behold, it is for the righteous' sake that it is spared. 18 'But behold, the time cometh,' saith the Lord, 'that when ye shall cast out the righteous from among you, Then shall ye be ripe for destruction; 19 Yea, wo be unto this great city because of the wickedness and abominations which are in her! 20 'Yea, and wo be unto the City of Gideon for the wickedness and abominations which are in her! 21 Yea, and wo be unto all the cities which are in the land round about, which are possessed by the Nephites, because of the wickedness and abominations which are in them!
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.
