Alma and Mosiah’s Sons’ Rebellion
Zarahemla Under Monarchial Rule
Alma’s son, Alma, and Mosiah’s sons, Ammon, Aaron, Omner, and Himni, are among the unbelievers who cause many problems for the church.
One day, as they were going about wreaking havoc, an angel appears in a spectacular earth–shaking display.
The angel calls Alma by name and asks him why he is persecuting the church.
The angel convinces Alma of his wrongs, and commands him to cease his harmful activity.
The angel speaks to the sons of Mosiah, then leaves.
Alma and the sons of Mosiah are overwhelmed beyond measure, and Alma is traumatized to the point that he overcome with full–body paralysis.
Alma, in an unconscious state, is agonized by his guilty conscience.
Mosiah’s sons carry Alma to his father.
Alma’s father coordinates an effort for the church to fast and pray on behalf of Alma.
Alma calls upon Jesus for relief from his suffering, and his prayer is answered.
Alma gets up, and tells the people of the church of his repentance and conversion.
