Brother *****, through the authority of the Melchezedek Priesthood and as patriarch I lay my hands upon your head to bless you. This gift is from Heavenly Father to show His approval of you and to be a guide to you in your life. You were a faithful son in your pre-earth life and come here by a special calling which you accepted. You were prepared for this by sustaining the Savior and the Plan of Salvation. This included your valiant work in opposing Satan and his followers. You were asked to wait to come to the earth in this the Last Dispensation of the Gospel. Satan also knows this. You meet him again (sic). He will try to deceive you and claim you in this life when he could not before. Heavenly Father trusts you will not fail.
Because of your goodness and diligence you earned the right to come through the chosen lineage of Ephraim, heir to the wonderful blessing inherent in it and the responsibilities. You are to be a teacher, a missionary and a worker of good through out your life. This will include a call to fulfill a full time mission, and the opportunity to be sent to a people who are seeking the gospel but do not know where to find it. When you bring it they will rejoice and bless you for searching them out. This will require your greatest efforts, your most faithful work to find them. As you develop this will prove to be one of the most wonderful and important things you can learn early in your life, this living, searching and working in the Kingdom of God.
You are blessed in your mind to expand as you seek knowledge through your college work and extended learning. You will have professors who teach by the power of God. Others who know not God will question your faith and challenge you. You have the gift of the Holy Ghost given to you by authorized servants, as well as the name of Jesus Christ in the waters of baptism. This will be a power rising up within you to give you answers and loosen your tongue that you may speak with power. Many will accept what you say, others will not, but your testimony will stand as a witness. Your worlds is one of electronic marvels with earphones and screens and games. These properly used will multiply your capabilities, but if abused will cover your ears to the shutting out of the still small voice and glue your eyes to screens distorting your view that you cannot see to discern between truth and error.
You will learn to enjoy the world, to see the beauty of it and to know that God made it for special purposes. You will also know the challenges. You will be tried in your physical body, your heart and your mind but it is only through these trials that you reach the deep and abiding testimony of faith and trust in your Heavenly Father. Before you walked by sight. now you learn to walk by faith. You will rejoice in the Lord for theses experiences. You will know the Savior in your life and feel to exult and magnify this magnificent testimony you have. You are blessed to see the hearts of others, to know their problems, to feel after them and serve them, to help and lift them up.
Choose carefully your friends to strengthen each other. Satan rages trying to claim you. Others who have not been faithful he already claims. The work he has appointed for himself is to claim you if he can. Remember your scriptures every day, your dailiy prayers. You will be strengthened so he will not have power over you. Never the less there will be times when you recognize you need to change your life to receive the gift of repentance and the gift of forgiveness. Your Savior is your Redeemer and makes possible your advancement into the realms of eternity even perfection.
Be careful in your dating and courtship. Honor virtue in yourself and others and not tamper with the wellspring of life. When it is time to marry do not delay. You will be blessed to find that beautiful woman who with you, in love, can go to the temple for your eternal covenants of marriage. Then you invite spirits to receive their earthly bodies to be taught in your special home. Do so with love, twice daily kneeling family prayer, daily scripture readings and faithful Family Home Evenings. Your children will need to be strengthened for their day and their challenges. Remember wholesome recreation that they will remember their home and their family with joy.
You are blessed to your place among your fellow men because of your knowledge and capability, to serve them, to make a living, to make your contributions of time, of tithes and offerings to the work of the church. There will be other good and worthy institutions to which you can give time and your money to help. Mortality will challenge you for you must be tried and proven. You will rise up from them more complete, more tested and better able to understand your fellow men and to serve the.
Remember the temple to go there often to be close to your Heavenly Father. This is the University of Eternity, and the truths you learn there will be of more importance than any thing else you learn. It will take time to understand these but they are simple as well as profound and eternal.
Your work and time in mortality will end and you will return home. You will meet loved ones, your family. At the appointed time you will present your family to the Savior and your Heavenly Parents. You are to come forth in the Morning of the First Resurrection in your perfected body, prepared and ready to live a Celestial Life in eternity with your family, and to progress onward in your own godhood. These blessing with many others are yours through your faithfulness in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
|Got it about while I was working on mission papers. It says I'll go on a full time mission but after the blessing, while working on my mission papers, I started having seizures with no apparent cause. Instead of going on one I got a rejection letter due to health issues. I'm still single. But have 'tampered with the wellspring of life' (I assume it means masturbation).|
