244 More especially given unto those who are of the house of Israel.
245 For thus spake the prophet, The Lord God surely shall visit all the house of Israel at that day;
246 Some with his voice, because of their righteousness, unto their great joy and salvation;
247 And others with the thunderings and the lightnings of his power, by tempest, by fire, and by smoke, and vapor of darkness, and by the opening of the earth, and by mountains which shall be carried up;
248 And all these things must surely come, saith the prophet Zenos.
249 And the rocks of the earth must rend;
250 And because of the groanings of the earth, many of the kings of the isles of the sea shall be wrought upon by the Spirit of God, to exclaim, The God of nature suffers.
251 And as for those who are at Jerusalem, saith the prophet, they shall be scourged by all people, because they crucify the God of Israel, and turn their hearts aside, rejecting signs and wonders, and power and glory of the God of Israel;
252 And because they turn their hearts aside, saith the prophet, and have despised the Holy One of Israel, they shall wander in the flesh, and perish, and become a hiss and a byword, and be hated among all nations;
253 Nevertheless, when that day cometh, saith the prophet, that they no more turn aside their hearts against the Holy One of Israel, then will he remember the covenants which he made to their fathers;
254 Yea, then will he remember the isles of the sea;
255 Yea, and all the people who are of the house of Israel, will I gather in, saith the Lord, according to the words of the prophet Zenos, from the four quarters of the earth;
256 Yea, and all the earth shall see the salvation of the Lord, saith the prophet;
257 Every nation, kindred, tongue and people, shall be blessed.
258 And I, Nephi, have written these things unto my people, that perhaps I might persuade them that they would remember the Lord their Redeemer;
259 Wherefore, I speak unto all the house of Israel, if it so be that they should obtain these things.
260 For behold, I have workings in the spirit, which doth weary me, even that all my joints are weak, for those who are at Jerusalem;
261 For had not the Lord been merciful, to shew unto me concerning them, even as he had prophets of old, I should have perished also;
262 And he surely did shew unto the prophets of old, all things concerning them;
263 And also he did shew unto many concerning us;
264 Wherefore, it must needs be, that we know concerning them, for they are written upon the plates of brass.
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.
