40 "And again I say unto you, Ye must repent, and be baptized in My name, and become as a little child, Or ye can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God! 41 "Verily, verily I say unto you that this is My doctrine; And whoso buildeth upon this, buildeth upon My rock, And the gates of hell shall not prevail against them. 42 "And whoso shall declare more or less than this and establish it for My doctrine, The same cometh of evil and is not built upon My rock; But he buildeth upon a sandy foundation, And the gates of hell standeth open to receive such when the floods come and the winds beat upon them; 43 Therefore, go forth unto this people and declare the words which I have spoken unto the ends of the earth." 44 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spake these words unto Nephi and to those which had been called- now the number of them which had been called and received power and authority to baptize were twelve- 45 And behold, He stretched forth His hand unto the multitude and cried unto them, saying: "Blessed are ye if ye shall give heed unto the words of these twelve which I have chosen from among you to minister unto you and to be your servants; 46 And unto them I have given power that they may baptize you with water; And after that ye are baptized with water, Behold, I will baptize you with fire and with the Holy Ghost. 47 "Therefore, blessed are ye if ye shall believe in Me and be baptized after that ye have seen Me and know that I Am. 48 "And again, more blessed are they which shall believe in your words because that ye shall testify that ye have seen Me and that ye know that I Am; 49 Yea, blessed are they which shall believe in your words and come down into the depths of humility and be baptized, For they shall be visited with fire and with the Holy Ghost and shall receive a remission of their sins. 50 "Yea, blessed are the poor in spirit which cometh unto Me, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 51 "And again, blessed are all they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. 52 "And blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 53 "And blessed are all they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost. 54 "And blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. 55 "And blessed are all the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 56 "And blessed are all the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God. 57 "And blessed are all they which are persecuted for My name's sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 58 "And blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake, 59 for ye shall have great joy and be exceeding glad, for great shall be your reward in heaven; For so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 60 "Verily, verily I say unto you, and I give unto you to be the salt of the earth, But if the salt shall lose its savor, wherewith shall the earth be salted? The salt shall be thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden underfoot of men.
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.
