35 And it came to pass that they did speak unto me again, saying, What meaneth this thing which our father saw in a dream?
36 What meaneth the tree which he saw?
37 And I said unto them, It was a representation of the tree of life.
38 And they said unto me, What meaneth the rod of iron which our father saw, that led to the tree?
39 And I said unto them, that it was the word of God; and whoso would hearken unto the word of God, and would hold fast unto it, they would never perish;
40 Neither could the temptations and the fiery darts of the adversary, overpower them unto blindness, to lead them away to destruction.
41 Wherefore, I, Nephi, did exhort them to give heed unto the word of the Lord;
42 Yea, I did exhort them with all the energies of my soul, and with all the faculty which I possessed, that they would give heed to the word of God, and remember to keep his commandments always, in all things.
43 And they said unto me, What meaneth the river of water which our father saw?
44 And I said unto them, that the water which my father saw, was filthiness;
45 And so much was his mind swallowed up in other things, that he beheld not the filthiness of the water;
46 And I said unto them, that it was an awful gulf, which separateth the wicked from the tree of life, and also from the saints of God.
47 And I said unto them, that it was a representation of that awful hell, which the angel said unto me was prepared for the wicked.
48 And I said unto them that our father also saw, that the justice of God did also divide the wicked from the righteous;
49 And the brightness thereof was like unto the brightness of a flaming fire, which ascendeth up unto God for ever and ever, and hath no end.
50 And they said unto me, Doth this thing mean the torment of the body in the days of probation, or doth it mean the final state of the soul after the death of the temporal body, or doth it speak of the things which are temporal?
51 And it came to pass that I said unto them, that it was a representation of things both temporal and spiritual;
52 For the day should come that they must be judged of their works, yea, even the works which were done by the temporal body in their days of probation;
53 Wherefore, if they should die in their wickedness, they must be cast off also, as to the things which are spiritual, which are pertaining to righteousness;
54 Wherefore, they must be brought to stand before God to be judged of their works:
55 And if their works have been filthiness, they must needs be filthy:
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.
