75 And they did swear by the heavens, and also by the throne of God, that they would go up to battle against their enemies and would cut them off from the face of the land. 76 And it came to pass that I, Mormon, did utterly refuse from this time forth to be a commander and a leader of this people because of their wickedness and abomination. 77 Behold, I had led them-notwithstanding their wickedness-I had led them many times to battle, And I had loved them according to the love of God which was in me with all my heart; 78 And my soul had been poured out in prayer unto my God all the day long for them; Nevertheless, it was without faith because of the hardness of their hearts. 79 And thrice have I delivered them out of the hands of their enemies and they have repented not of their sins; 80 And when they had sworn by all that had been forbidden them by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that they would go up unto their enemies to battle and avenge themselves of the blood of their brethren, Behold, the voice of the Lord came unto me, saying: "Vengeance is Mine and I will repay! And because this people repented not after that I had delivered them, Behold, they shall be cut off from the face of the earth!" 81 And it came to pass that I utterly refused to go up against mine enemies; And I did even as the Lord had commanded me; And I did stand as an idle witness to manifest unto the world the things which I saw and heard, according to the manifestations of the Spirit which had testified of things to come. 82 Therefore, I write unto you, Gentiles, And also unto you, house of Israel, when the work shall commence that ye shall be about to prepare to return to the land of your inheritance, 83 Yea, behold, I write unto all the ends of the earth, Yea, unto you, twelve tribes of Israel, which shall be judged according to your works by the twelve whom Jesus chose to be His disciples in the Land of Jerusalem, 84 And I write also unto the remnant of this people, which shall also be judged by the twelve whom Jesus chose in this land and they shall be judged by the other twelve whom Jesus chose in the Land of Jerusalem- 85 And these things does the Spirit manifest unto me- Therefore, I write unto you all. 86 And for this cause I write unto you: That ye may know that ye must all stand before the judgment seat of Christ, yea, every soul which belongs to the whole human family of Adam; 87 And ye must stand to be judged of your works, whether they be good or evil; And also that ye may believe the gospel of Jesus Christ which ye shall have among you; 88 And also that the Jews, the covenant people of the Lord, shall have other witness besides that which they saw and heard, that Jesus whom they slew was the very Christ and the very God; 89 And I would that I could persuade all ye ends of the earth to repent and prepare to stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Mormon 2 1 And now it came to pass that in the three hundred and sixty and third year, the Nephites did go up with their armies to battle against the Lamanites, out of the Land of Desolation. 2 And it came to pass that the armies of the Nephites were driven back again to the Land of Desolation; 3 And while they were yet weary, a fresh army of the Lamanites did come upon them; And they had a sore battle, insomuch that the Lamanites did take possession of the City Desolation and did slay many of the Nephites and did take many prisoners, And the remainder did flee and join the inhabitants of the City Teancum. 4 Now the City Teancum lay in the borders by the seashore, And it was also near the City Desolation. 5 And it was because that the armies of the Nephites went up unto the Lamanites that they began to be smitten; For were it not for that, the Lamanites could have had no power over them. 6 But behold, the judgments of God will overtake the wicked; And it is by the wicked that the wicked are punished; For it is the wicked that stirreth up the hearts of the children of men unto bloodshed.
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.
