Patriarchal Blessing of John Wilson given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... Thou must preach the gospel of the kingdom to the nations sitting in the regions and shadow of death. ... Thou shalt have power to command the winds and they shall obey thee. yea the boisterous waves shall be still at thy word. ... Thou shalt have long life and the treasures of the earth. ... Thou shalt stand with the hundred & 44 thousand on Mount Zion in the presence of the Lamb. I place this seal on thy head and nothing but transgression shall remove it. ... I seal the[e] up unto eternal life, Amen.
