The Book of Mormon plates were finally deposited in the Hill Cumorah by Moroni,
a faithful servant of Jesus Christ. He was the last Christian left alive after the
battles that destroyed his people, who had already fallen into darkness.
He wrote, “Because of their hatred they put to death every Nephite that will not
deny the Christ. And I, Moroni, will not deny the Christ; wherefore, I wander whithersoever
I can for the safety of mine own life.”
An astounding, unique, and very precious feature of the Book of Mormon is the promise,
as expressed by Moroni:
“And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God,
the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true.
“And if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ,
He will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.”
Millions of people have tested this promise and received the witness from the Holy
Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true, that it is the word of God. There is no expiration
date on the promise. God is faithful and will fulfill what He has promised, to those
who are willing to follow where He leads.
Moroni, the last writer of the Book of Mormon, encourages his readers to believe
in Jesus Christ and to believe in the words of the Book of Mormon, which came to
us by the gift and power of God:
“Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness.
And if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might,
mind, and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may
be perfect in Christ. And if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can
in nowise deny the power of God.”
