Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs is apparently back in the prophet business. Not three years since a jailhouse confession to his brother, Nephi, that “I am not a prophet“, Jeffs is sending out an apocalyptic warning to government leaders who he says are persecuting him.
He calls it a proclamation. It is dated, Friday, October 2, 2009. On that date Jeffs was still in jail in Kingman, Arizona awaiting trials that would never come.
Jeffs writes, “Inasmuch as government officials have joined with those who were once members €¦ who are now apostate and determined to destroy the Church €¦ and have fought to use records of the Church to persecute and prosecute €¦”
“We declare a warning €¦ He, the Lord, will send His judgments (sic) upon them. This €¦ through His servants €¦”
Then Jeffs switches voice, speaking in the first person for Jesus Christ, “I say unto you repent or be destroyed in the flesh.’
