Ether 4 starts with Moroni telling us that the brother of Jared was commanded to write what he had seen and then to hide up his writings and the stones. Moroni continues here to remind us that no one is left on the continent besides the Lamanites and himself and that he, too, has been commanded to finish his writings and translations and hide them up into the earth again.
Moroni is told of the lord in verse 7 “And in that day that they shall exercise faith in me, saith the Lord, even as the brother of Jared did, that they may become sanctified in me, then will I manifest unto them the things which the brother of Jared saw, even to the unfolding unto them all my revelations, saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of the heavens and of the earth, and all things that in them are.” And here…. a long time ago, about 1600 years, was Moroni told that the first vision would occur. Joseph Smith saw what the brother of Jared saw in 1820.
Verse 11 and 12 I love….. we learn that all good things are of Christ and that the Spirit will tell us so. We are told again in verse 12 “I am the light, and the life, and the truth of the world.” Christ then invites all to come unto him and when we do, great an marvelous things shall be shown unto us and revelations given through John shall be at hand. He calls us, each and everyone, unto repentance, to baptism and to be faithful to the end. For those that follow in His name “shall be lifted up to dwell in the kingdom prepared for him from the foundation of the world.”
And so He spoke. I can not write anything more eloquent than the word of Jesus Christ.
