s Blessing.
You shall be one of the Seventy. Satan has desired to have you that he might sift you as wheat, but the Lord has upheld you. The Lord has chosen you. You shall be an instrument in hands of God of turning Idolaters to the Lord. You shall receive great power from God. You shall have power over darkness & pestilence. God’s power shall be manifested through you. And after you have done great things, you shall return to your family in safety & peace and you shall not be a whit behind those of the same ministry with you. Even so amen. [p. 169]
