Patriarchal Blessing of Levi Richards given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... At a blessing Meeting, held in the Lord's House in Kirtland ...

thou must lay hold on the Powers of the Holy Ghost and be a mighty man of God and at thy command Mountains shall fall- winds and waves shall obey thee- Rivers shall be turned from their course- Prisons shall not hold thee for thou shalt burst their bars and gates- no Pits dug by thine Enemies shall hold thee- thou art a chosen vessel of God- he has seen thee from Eternity- yea thou art a chosen vessel to do the work and will of thy Redeemer- ... thou shalt have a Residence in Zion and shalt bring many sheaves there who shall rejoice in the Lord- the Angels of heaven shall minister to thee- ... If thou art faithful to God thou shalt see the Restoration of all things- see the gathered House of Israel- see Jesus and stand in the midst of the One hundred and forty four thousand whom John saw standing with the Lamb on the Mount Zion- shalt sing their Song- ... by the Powers of the Priesthood I seal thee up to Eternal Life Amen & Amen

[Patriarchal Blessings]
