You shall have the wisdom of the serpent with the  harmlessness of the Dove in proclaiming the Gospel.  You shall teach idolatrous nations and converse with  their priests and convert many. The Lord has proved  you and found you worthy. You shall have peculiar  faculty or sagacity in teaching and have great  power. And the blessing of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob  shall rest upon you. Your life shall be preserved &  prolonged and you shall return to Zion leading  a company in peace. Amen.
Blessing.
The Lord called you when you obeyed the Gospel and  you are one of the Seventy. and he will receive nothing  but all your time and talents. You are disposed to  be a son of Thunder, but if you are not very faith ful you will fall and another will take your  crown. But if you are faithful, you shall  over come all things, and if so in your old age  this pleasing reflection shall be your greatest  joy. You shall pass through a scene where  you shall hear many cry Hosanna, Hosanna.  because they heard the truth at your mouth. <Am[e]n>
s Blessing
Thou hast been ordained an high-Priest, we  seal upon thee this ministry. Tho[u] hast approved  thyself before God. Thou hast called upon him  to make thee an instrument in doing  a great work and thou shalt do it. Thou  hast longed to do great things and thou shalt  do them by going to distant nations. Thy desire  shall be granted in gathering up the Lord’s Elect.  Thou shalt go and return with many blessings  upon thy head, with songs of everlasting joy and no  power shall overcome thee. Even so amen. [p. 171]
