Cult leader Warren Jeffs prophecies famine by mob rule • Thursday December 15, 2011

It appears that imprisoned cult leader Warren Jeffs is using his life sentence to sharpen his creative writing skills.

For the fourth time this year he has issued a set of revelations which he represents as coming directly from Jesus Christ (actually, the Mormon version of Jesus).

Among other things Jeffs predicts that if he is not freed from prison there will be “whirlwind power, in famine, a desolating scourge, a sickness of no cure at first, earthquake, windstorms, pestilence, famine by mob rule.”

Matthew Waller at the San Angelo Standard-Times reports

One document purports to be a revelation from Jesus Christ to FLDS leader Warren Jeffs, who is in prison for life plus 20 years for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl. The letter is dated Nov. 13.

It is labeled as a “Full Warning” to national leaders and the people of the United States.

The letter warns of judgment with sickness and war and mountains covering wicked cities.

“Let United States of America leaders repent of their most wicked unholy ways, most of immoral personal way,” the letter states.

Another document is labeled “Jesus Christ, God Over All, Sendeth a Final Warning to Peoples of Every Land on Earth, to be Heeded Now by All Peoples.”

The letter warns of judgment and specifically asks for the release of Jeffs and “Merril Jessop,” the former FLDS bishop Fredrick Merril Jessop, who has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for performing an underage marriage.

The letter also condemns an “apostate witness” who testified in trials against FLDS members, and contains general judgment for all the world.

“Now be of heralding my will — I shall be as a flaming fire to consume all wickedness of Zion’s land, even North and South America,” the letter states.

In her Polygamy Blog at the Salt Lake Tribune Lindsay Whitehurt says

Two new Warren Jeffs revelations were received by the Utah Attorney General’s office today. They prophetize a “whirlwind power, in famine, a desolating scourge, a sickness of no cure at first, earthquake, windstorms, pestilence, famine by mob rule” if Jeffs isn’t freed.

Jeffs’ latest writing efforts can be read here and here.

In case you find it difficult to wade through Jeffs’ nonsense, Whitehurts has provided a helpful Google Map on which she charts the cult leader’s prophecies:
