[Patriarchal Blessing of Heber C. Kimball by Peter Melling]
... thou shalt push the people together from the ends of the earth. ... thou shalt have the gift of healing greater than thou hast hitherto had, even to the anointing and opening of the eyes of the blind in the name of Jesus Christ and also the deaf to hear and also rebuking of fevers and many more works shalt thou do, thou shalt see great slaughter and destruction of the enemies of the Lord, and when men will run to and fro in great amazement fear and consternation because of the mighty judgements of the Lord which will come upon the wicked and workers of iniquity, and when the earth will reel to and fro and stagger and when there will be great signs in the heavens, yea, and thou shalt also be standing upon the earth when the voice of the bridegroom shall be sounded forth and when the heavens will be unveiled, and when the son of Man will appear and when he will shine forth in his glory ... thou shalt see many great and glorious sights before the great winding up scene--

... thou shalt have power to rebuke the winds and the seas ... thou shall possess the land of Joseph for an everlasting possession ...
