’s blessing.
In the name of the Lord, Wisdom & intelligence shall be poured out upon him, to enable him to perform the great work, that is incumbent upon him. That he may be spared until the saints are gathered, that he may stand before Kings and Rulers to bear testimony and be upheld by holy Angels, and the nations of the earth shall acknowledge that God has sent him. He shall have power to overcome his enemies, and his life shall be spared in the midst of pestilance and destruction, and in the midst of his enemies. He shall be a prince and a saviour to God’s people. The Tempter shall not overcome him, nor his enemies prevail against him. The Heavens shall be opened unto him as unto men in days of old. He shall be mighty in the hands of God, and shall convince thousands that God has sent him, and his days may by prolonged until the coming of the son of man. He shall be wafted as on eagles wings, from country to country and from people to people and be able to do wonders in the midst of this generation, Even so Amen.

’s blessing
Thou hast prevailed, and thou shalt prevail and thou shalt declare the gospel unto many nations. Thou shalt be made mighty before God. And although thou shalt be cast out from the face of men, yet thou shalt have power to prevail, thou shalt lead the Elect triumphantly to the places of refuge. Thou shalt be like thy brethren who have been blessed before thee. Thou shalt stand in that day of calamity when the wicked shall be consumed, and present unto the Father, spotless, the fruit of thy labor. Thou shalt overcome all the evils that are in the world. Thou shalt have wisdom to put to silence all the wisdom of the wise, and thou shalt see the face of thy Redeemer in the flesh. These blessings are pronounced and sealed upon thee even so Amen.
