Patriarchal Blessing of Isaac Rogers given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... No prison shall contain thee, and when those of the enemy shall be hired to seek thy destruction. God shall make known to thee the means of escape and shall set his holy angels to watch over thee. Thou shalt stand to behold the winding up scene, and shall stand on the earth at the coming of Christ if faithful. Thou shalt stand on Mount Zion with the hundred and forty four thousand. This Blessing I seal upon you, and by the authority of the priesthood and in the name of Jesus Christ I seal you up unto eternal life, even so Amen.

[Patriarchal Blessing Book 1:109, in Early Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Joseph Smith Sr. (Author), H. Michael Marquardt (Editor), http://amzn.to/rCBHVe]
