Incredible New Book!!! “The 3rd Watch Book of Patriarchal Blessings”

My wife and I were given a vacation package to Cancun which we recently returned from.

It was glorious.

After returning, I have been preoccupied and distracted from continuing on with the Nehor series.

I apologize for this to anyone that has been engaged with the series.

I will be posting the next installment within a few days. And it will be lengthy because I will be including lots of information about the events of the end times which testify to the finality of the judgment that follows this earthly probation.

A New Mind Blowing Book has Just Been Published

I am doing this quick post today because a friend of mine just sent me a book that he has just published.

He has compiled a listing of over 170 patriarchal blessings that were given by Joseph Smith Jr. and his father Joseph Smith Sr.

I have rarely been more excited about a book.

In fact I have been wanting to find something like this or publish something like this but just did not take the time to accumulate all of the blessings that are available to read.

Imagine being able to review the revelatory promises to various saints, many made during the Kirtland revelatory time frame.

I was perplexed to see that the book was not available for sale so I called and quizzed him about this travesty. He informed me that he was concerned about copyright law.

Being one that never holds back on providing locker room legal advice from someone without any legal background, I told him I did not think it was legal for anyone to copyright historical blessings that have been in existence for nearly two hundred years.

I suggested that he just move forward and make it available.

After twisting his arm for about 30 seconds he agreed to place it on Amazon so that my readers and others can enjoy this amazing labor of love.

Naturally, if he gets sued I will deny having given him any legal advice. LOL

If all goes well, it should be for sale on Amazon within a few days.

If you are interested in church history, doctrine, or prophecy, there should be some interesting information in the blessings.

Steve has a similar view of the three watches doctrine as me although we probably have differing points of view with regard to the chronology of certain events. It is rare to find any two people who view end times eschatology the exact same way.

For those of you that might be interested, I hope you enjoy it and share any observations that you may have with me so that I can take all the credit for your discovery and blog about it. LOL

PS Here is the preface

    • Thanks for the information..

      One of the things I like about Fishers format is how he provides prophetic context and also how he provides the blessings of Joseph Smith and other leaders at the very beginning

  2. I have not found the book on Amazon.

    Exciting! Looking forward to this read.
    Typo in the 3rd paragraph? First patriarch of the church. Sr not Jr?

    • Interesting topic.

      As an official calling in the church, one could argue that Sr. was the first patriarch. On the other hand, according to one of the blessings that Joseph Smith got, he is the “first patriarch in the last days”

      “In his hands shall the Urim and Thummim remain and the holy ministry, and the keys of the evangelical priesthood, also, for an everlasting priesthood forever, even the patriarchal; for, behold, he is the first patriarch in the last days. ”

      One of the things that surprised me from my brief conversation with Steve is that Jr gave quite a few patriarchal blessings.

      I was not aware that he had given more than one or two, but apparently he gave quite a few.

      • RC says:

        I wasn’t aware that he gave quite a few either. I’m interest to see who he gave those blessings to and if any of them were just unknown regular folks.

        That’s also a very informative snippet from a blessing to Joseph Smith. Do you happen to know what was going on at the time he received it? The part that intrigues me is “In his hands shall the Urim and Thummim REMAIN and the holy ministry”. Does this support a future, multiple fulfillment scenario or was this blessing given when the 116 pages of the Book of Mormon were lost? In all your research over the years, do you recall any other specific references to the Urim and Thummim remaining with Joseph Smith and/or not given to anyone else for their use?

  4. One Who Is Thirsting says:

    Upon reading this post and the preface to the book I had the thought that if so many beings are to come back in the 3rd watch would there be other terrestrial beings and would this be during the millennium?

    Could these be the ones that come with Christ when he comes again? These first laborers being the ones who come in glory?

    In my mind the timeline would be wrong. They would need to come prior to his second coming, so just when does he come in the third watch?
