Today's Favorite Verse: Genesis 49:22, 26

Today's Favorite Verse: Genesis 49:22, 26
Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall.
The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren."

Jacob blesses each of his sons and tells them what shall befall them in the last days. Each of the twelve tribes of Israel have a role to play. These two blessings of Joseph mean the most to me. It speaks of his descendant Lehi leaving Jerusalem and crossing the ocean and coming to the Americas. There a righteous nation inherited this promise land. They were separate from their brethren when Christ same to his "other sheep" after his resurrection. 

Through Joseph's son Ephraim come priesthood blessings in the last days. I can see these "everlasting hills" outside my window. From here missionaries are sent throughout the world. Temple blessings are restored once again upon the earth. In the tops of the mountain stands his holy temples. It means the world to me. This prophesy has blessed my life.
