[Patriarchal Blessing of George Washington Johnson, by John Smith]
... Thou shalt be a savior upon Mt Zion and stand with the 144,000 clothed in white. Thou shalt have power to go from land to land and from sea to sea. From island to island and from Planet to Planet and visit the prisons where the spirits of the departed dwell proclaiming salvation thro all thy course and mighty power and success which cannot now be described. The number of thy years shall be according to thy faith even to see the curtains of Zion spread over all the continent of America with all the beauty and glory thereof. Thou shalt have thine inheritance with thy brethren in time and in eternity and thy companion and thy children with thee possessing all the riches of heaven and earth to thy full satisfaction if thou are faithful not one word shall fail for I seal it upon thee by the authority of the Priesthood and I seal thee up to Eternal Life ...
