Passage: Moroni 6:9 - Moroni 7:20

9 And their meetings were conducted by the church after the manner of the workings of the Spirit and by the power of the Holy Ghost; For as the power of the Holy Ghost led them- whether to preach, or exhort, or to pray, or to supplicate, or to sing- Even so it was done.

Moroni 7
1 And now I, Moroni, write a few of the words of my father Mormon, which he spake concerning faith, hope and charity. For after this manner did he speak unto the people as he taught them in the synagogue which they had built for the place of worship.
2 And now I, Mormon, speak unto you, my beloved brethren; And it is by the grace of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ and His holy will, because of the gift of His calling unto me, that I am permitted to speak unto you at this time;
3 Wherefore, I would speak unto you that are of the church, that are the peaceable followers of Christ, And that have obtained a sufficient hope by which ye can enter into the rest of the Lord from this time henceforth, until ye shall rest with Him in heaven.
4 And now my brethren, I judge these things of you because of your peaceable walk with the children of men; For I remember the word of God which saith: "By their works ye shall know them; For if their works be good, then they are good also."
5 For behold, God hath said: "A man being evil cannot do that which is good." For if he offereth a gift or prayeth unto God, except he shall do it with real intent, it profiteth him nothing;
6 For behold, it is not counted unto him for righteousness.
7 For behold, if a man being evil giveth a gift, he doeth it grudgingly; Wherefore, it is counted unto him the same as if he had retained the gift; Wherefore, he is counted evil before God.
8 And likewise also is it counted evil unto a man if he shall pray, and not with real intent of heart; Yea, and it profiteth him nothing, for God receiveth none such; Wherefore, a man being evil cannot do that which is good; Neither will he give a good gift.
9 For behold, a bitter fountain cannot bring forth good water; Neither can a good fountain bring forth bitter water; Wherefore, a man being the servant of the devil cannot follow Christ; And if he follow Christ, he cannot be a servant of the devil.
10 Wherefore, all things which are good cometh of God; And that which is evil cometh of the devil; For the devil is an enemy unto God and fighteth against Him continually, And inviteth and enticeth to sin and to do that which is evil continually.
11 But behold, that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually; Wherefore, everything which inviteth and enticeth to do good and to love God and to serve Him is inspired of God;
12 Wherefore, take heed, my beloved brethren, that ye do not judge that which is evil to be of God, Or that which is good and of God to be of the devil.
13 For behold, my brethren, it is given unto you to judge, that ye may know good from evil; And the way to judge is as plain, that ye may know with a perfect knowledge, as the daylight is from the dark night;
14 For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that they may know good from evil. Wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge: For everything which inviteth to do good and to persuade to believe in Christ is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ;
15 Wherefore, ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God; But whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do evil and believe not in Christ and deny Him and serve not God, Then ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of the devil;
16 For after this manner doth the devil work, For he persuadeth no man to do good-No! Not one! neither doth his angels, neither doth they which subject themselves unto him.
17 And now my brethren, seeing that ye know the light by which ye may judge, which light is the light of Christ, See that ye do not judge wrongfully; For with that same judgment which ye judge, ye shall also be judged;
18 Wherefore, I beseech of you, brethren, that ye should search diligently in the light of Christ that ye may know good from evil; And if ye will lay hold upon every good thing and condemn it not, ye certainly will be a child of Christ.
19 And now my brethren, how is it possible that ye can lay hold upon every good thing?
20 And now I come to that faith of which I said I would speak, And I will tell you the way whereby ye may lay hold on every good thing.

Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus

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;"

--Ether 1:112

 

"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.
