thee apart for this mission and ministry, to preach the gospel and testify to this generation of the things which thou hast seen and heard. In the name of the Lord, therefore, thou Shalt go forth, and his angel shall go with thee whithersoever thou goest; for thou shalt go and nothing shall stay thee. Thou shalt preach to nations that thou knowest not of at this time: thou shalt go to the islands of the seas. When thy locks shall be silvered over with age, thou shalt be renewed that thou shalt receive again the vigor of thy youth and yet stand before the Kings of the earth, if thou desirest it. Thou shalt be a witness for the Lord of the things that thou Knowest until the Lord comes in his glory, and thou shalt see him with thine eyes in the flesh;— for the desire of thy heart, in righteousness, shall be granted. Thou shalt go to Europe and preach the gospel to the Kings of the earth. Thou shalt stand before bishops, archbishops and lord bishops, and even the pope himself. Thou shalt push together thy thousands: thou shalt proclaim to Catholics, to Presbyterians and all other sects and denominations, and teach bishops, archbichops and popes. Thou shalt be changed in the twinkling of an eye,— and many other blessings that we cannot describe, which the Lord will show thee. Thou art of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. In the name of Jesus we these blessings upon thy head through thy diligence, faithfulness, prayer of faith and holy desires; even so. Amen.
