2 Behold the field is white already to har vest, therefore, whoso desireth to reap, let  him thrust in his sickle with his might, and  reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure  up for his soul, everlasting salvation in the  kingdom of God: yea, whosoever will thrust  in his sickle and reap, the same is called of  God: therefore, if you will ask of me you shall  receive; if you will knock it shall be opened  unto you.
3 Seek to bring forth and establish my Zi on. Keep my commandments in all things,  and if you keep my commandments and en dure to the end, you shall have eternal life;  which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God.
4 And it shall come to pass, that if you shall  ask the Father in my name, in faith believing,  you shall receive the Holy Ghost, which giv eth utterance, that you may stand as a witness  of the things of which you shall both hear and  see; and also that you may declare repen tance unto this generation.
5 Behold I am Jesus Christ the Son of the  living God, who created the heavens and the  earth; a light which cannot be hid in darkness:  wherefore, I must bring forth the fulness of my  gospel from the Gentiles unto the house of Is rael. And behold thou art , and thou  art called to assist: which thing if ye do, and  are faithful, ye shall be blessed both spiritually  and temporally, and great shall be your re ward: Amen. [p. 252]
