1For it came to pass after I had desired to know the things that my father had seen, and believing that the Lord was able to make them known unto me, as I sat pondering in mine heart I was caught away in the Spirit of the Lord, yea, into an exceedingly high mountain, which I never had before seen, and upon which I never had before set my foot.
2And the Spirit said unto me: Behold, what desirest thou?
3And I said: I desire to behold the things which my father saw.
4And the Spirit said unto me: Believest thou that thy father saw the tree of which he hath spoken?
God has promised us in the Bible and in The Book of Mormon that as we ask for knowledge, we’ll receive; we can come ‘boldly before the throne of grace,” “ask, seek and knock” at the door, and He will respond.
