*****, you are indeed a choice seed, and you are here to receive this blessing, a blessing that you desire. Now our Father in Heaven is mindful of you, and you will receive many blessings and promises if you are faithful and obedient to His laws. You will receive certain ordinances, as you go through your life, that will bring great joy and happiness unto you. But inasmuch as you have these ordinances pronounced upon you, if you are not obedient and if you do not keep the commandments, you will find that these will bring sorrow and heartbreak unto you. So remember, there are certain commandments that our Father in Heaven requires that you keep, and among these are that you keep your chastity, that you are clean and pure in your mind and your body, your actions and your thoughts. Be pure and clean at all times, and then you will be upon the pathway which leads to eternal fame and immortal glory.
Now to give you comfort in your life you have a companion to guide you a constant companion which is the Holy Ghost. This was bestowed upon you as you came up out of the waters of baptism, and it is a voice that from time to time gives you counsel and advice, gives unto you warning.
Now remember that you are to help in the building of the Kingdom of our Father, and that you will be able to do this in various ways. First, by setting an example, an example that is above reproach, an example unto those whom you associate with. So remember those whom you associate with should be of a religious nature, and if they are not members of the Church you should try to influence them to the sacred truths of the Gospel. And if you do this, you will find that they will enter into the waters of baptism through your efforts, and thus you will be eternally blessed, not only by our Father in Heaven but by those who enter into the waters of baptism. So remember that you can have a reaction from those who enter the waters of baptism. For they will be able to do their genealogy work, even in the House of the Lord, and many shall rejoice of their families, who are now awaiting for this work to be accomplished. But you will be able to accomplish much good in the House of the Lord if you are faithful. For the time will come when you will be allowed the privilege to enter into the holy House of the Lord to work and labour for the dead. And thus, in the morning of the first resurrection, as you will be given the privilege to come forth, you will strike hands with those whom you have laboured for in the holy temple. And they will bless you and honour you, and give grace unto you for the work and the mission which you have accomplished. Also, you will be able to labour among your brethren and sisters within the Church. For your mission shall be with the youth of Zion, helping them and giving them counsel.
Now I say rejoice, for you shall have the privilege to find a companion whom you may share these blessings with, whom you may raise a righteous seed with and whom you may teach the true principles of the Gospel to, and of your loins you shall be fruitful and bear a seed unto our Father, a seed that will embrace the Gospel and give honour and glory unto you.
Now there shall be difficulties that will be overcome within your home. Things will take place that you thought would be impossible, but remember that all things are possible with the Lord, and thereby you will see the hand of the Lord as it shall be stretched forth out unto you.
Now you are of the House of Israel, and this is a wonderful blessing being of the loins of Ephraim. For it gives unto you certain rights and blessings and promises, blessings of leadership, blessings of health and strength, blessings that are not normally given all people upon the earth but unto those whom are choice. Now I say that inasmuch as you go forth, you shall receive health and strength unto your body. You shall be free from the afflictions that come upon mankind.
Now as you go through this life you shall see destruction and famine come unto many of the inhabitants, but you will be protected and preserved, if you remember to honour the callings that are placed upon you, if you keep the commandments of our Father and do His will. I bless you and promise you that you will live to ripe old age, when you will be able to give testimony to others concerning the truth of the Gospel, and you will have joy in your posterity. For it is pronounced upon you and sealed upon you at this time that you may have all that the Father has to give unto His children, the gift of eternal life and exaltation in His presence. And now I seal this blessing upon you, saying rejoice, for you are found and numbered among the chosen children of our Heavenly Father. And this I seal upon you through the power of the Priesthood, and in the name of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
