39 And because they did cast them all out, that there were none righteous among them, I did send down fire and destroy them, that their wickedness and abominations might be hid from before My face, That the blood of the prophets and the saints which I sent among them might not cry unto Me from the ground against them. 40 "And many great destructions have I caused to come upon this land and upon this people because of their wickedness and their abominations. 41 "O all ye that are spared because ye were more righteous than they! Will ye not now return unto Me and repent of your sins and be converted, that I may heal you? 42 "Yea, verily I say unto you, if ye will come unto Me, ye shall have eternal life; 43 Behold, Mine arm of mercy is extended toward you, And whosoever will come, him will I receive, And blessed are they which cometh unto Me. 44 "Behold, I Am Jesus Christ, the Son of God; I created the heavens and the earth and all things that in them is; 45 I was with the Father from the beginning; I Am in the Father and the Father in Me, And in Me hath the Father glorified His name. 46 "I came unto My own and My own received Me not, And the scriptures concerning My coming are fulfilled; 47 And as many as have received Me, to them have I given to become the sons of God, And even so will I to as many as shall believe on My name. "For behold, by Me redemption cometh, And in Me is the law of Moses fulfilled. 48 "I Am the light and the life of the world; I Am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. 49 "And ye shall offer up unto Me no more the shedding of blood; Yea, your sacrifices and your burnt offerings shall be done away, For I will accept none of your sacrifices and your burnt offerings; And ye shall offer for a sacrifice unto Me a broken heart and a contrite spirit; 50 And whoso cometh unto Me with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, him will I baptize with fire and with the Holy Ghost, Even as the Lamanites, because of their faith in Me at the time of their conversion, were baptized with fire and with the Holy Ghost, And they knew it not. 51 "Behold, I have come unto the world to bring redemption unto the world-to save the world from sin; Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto Me as a little child, him will I receive, For of such is the kingdom of God. 52 "Behold, for such I have laid down My life and have taken it up again; Therefore, repent and come unto Me, ye ends of the earth, and be saved!" 53 And now behold, it came to pass that all the people of the land did hear these sayings and did witness of it; 54 And after these sayings there was silence in the land for the space of many hours, For so great was the astonishment of the people that they did cease from lamenting and howling for the loss of their kindreds which had been slain; Therefore, there was silence in all the land for the space of many hours. 55 And it came to pass that there came a voice again unto the people-and all the people did hear and did witness of it-saying: "O ye people of these great cities which have fallen, which are a descendant of Jacob, yea, which are of the house of Israel, O ye people of the house of Israel, How oft have I gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings and have nourished you. 56 "And again- How oft would I have gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, Yea, O ye people of the house of Israel which have fallen, 57 Yea, O ye people of the house of Israel, ye that dwell at Jerusalem, as ye that have fallen; Yea, how oft would I have gathered you as a hen gathereth her chickens, And ye would not. 58 "O ye house of Israel whom I have spared, How oft will I gather you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, if ye will repent and return unto Me with full purpose of heart; 59 But if not, O house of Israel, The place of your dwellings shall become desolate until the time of the fulfilling of the covenant to your fathers."
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.
