good, is of me: for good cometh of none, save it be of me. I  am the same that leadeth men to all good: he that will not be lieve my words, will not believe me, that I am; and he that  will not believe me, will not believe the Father which sent me.  For behold, I am the Father, I am the light, and the life, and  the truth of the world. Come unto me, O ye Gentiles, and I  will shew unto you the greater things, the knowledge which is  hid up because of unbelief. Come unto me, O ye house of  Israel, and it shall be made manifest unto you how great  things the Father hath laid up for you, from the foundation of  the world; and it hath not come unto you, because of unbelief.  Behold, when ye shall rend that veil of unbelief which doth  cause you to remain in your awful state of wickedness, and  hardness of heart, and blindness of mind, then shall the great  and marvellous things which have been hid up from the found ation of the world from you; 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 cove nant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel; and  then shall my revelations which I have caused to be written  by my servant John, be unfolded in the eyes of all the people.  Remember, when ye see these things, ye shall know that the  time is at hand that they shall be made manifest in very deed;  therefore, when ye shall receive this record, ye may know  that the work of the Father has commenced upon all the face  of the land. Therefore, repent all ye ends of the earth, and  come unto me, and believe in my Gospel, and be baptized in  my name: for he that believeth, and is baptized, shall be sa ved; but he that believeth not, shall be damned: and signs  shall follow them that believe in my name. And blessed is  he that is found faithful unto my name, at the last day: for  they shall be lifted up to dwell in the kingdom prepared for  them from the foundation of the world. And behold, it is I  that hath spoken it. Amen.
Ether, Chapter 2 [Ether 5]
CHAPTER II.
 
And now I, Moroni, have written the words which was  commanded me, according to my memory; and I have told you  the things which I have sealed up; therefore touch them not,  in order that ye may translate: for that thing is forbidden you, [p. 547]

And blessed is he that is found faithful unto my name, at the last day: for they shall be lifted up to dwell in the kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world.
