COLORADO CITY There are new indications of turmoil after an end-of-the-world prophecy from polygamist leader Warren Jeffs. Some say people are scared in the Utah-Arizona border town of Hildale/Colorado City.
Reportedly, Jeffs is predicting the end-of-the-world sometime before New Year's Day. He's made similar predictions before. But, this time it's in a worrisome climate as his followers have been repeatedly warned and threatened to prove their righteousness.
Many residents of Hildale & Colorado City were shocked to find three of the most prominent businesses suddenly closed- the only grocery store, the hardware store, and even a Radio Shack.
Imprisoned FLDS leader Warren Jeffs reportedly issued a Doomsday prophecy last Sunday, according to former member Isaac Wyler.
Also, it was reported that Warren Jeffs has banned oatmeal, turnips and dairy products, but sources are not sure why.
"From what I've heard, there was a prophecy that the lifting up would occur before the end of the year," Wyler said. "All the righteous FLDS people would be lifted up and everybody else would be destroyed."
FLDS people believe in a literal, physical lifting up when the apocalypse comes.
Even insiders are scared, according to private investigator Sam Brower. His sources say a warning from Jeffs was read aloud last Sunday to the so-called United Order.

Invest in Nike.
I know people like Twinkies, but it isn’t the end of the world...
I feel fine.
I’m sure that a child molesting adulterer is in direct communications with G-d. /s ;-)
Warren Jeffs, follower of false prophet Joseph Smith.
The congress bickered and lies told behind closed doors,
A country with thousands looking to secede,
And leave their countrymen behind to bleed,
Into a dark and gloomy holiday season, Obama in the lead... More seriously though...when Damscus falls to ashes and is a city no more...look up for redemption draws nigh... Never forget what Christmas really is about.
I can't speak for the oatmeal or the dairy products but turnips are just darn disgusting. Good for Warren!
It is written that December 32, 2012 will not come.
No, direct contact with the other one.
He says before the end of the year - we can be closer than that - everyone knows the earth hits the dust on Dec. 21 - the Myans said so.
Really, there are millions worried about Dec. 21 - it’s been approaching for years and people are waiting, waiting, waiting.
“turnips are just darn disgusting.”
No, they’re not. You can steam them, and mash them just like spuds. Great with butter. salt and pepper. They are also great in stir fries. There are a lot of ways to cook them, and you have obviously had the nasty ways of cooking them!
Oatmeals is evil yo! I dunn heard it from the crazy man!
Turnips are also not bad julienned in salads. Like radishes but milder.
I prefer to partake of parsnips.
Turnips are really good if prepared properly.
Turnips are also great in beef barley soup, along with leeks
Holy crap. We are only sixty miles away from Colorado City. Maybe I’ll go over there on December 21 to watch the lifting up. I hope for certain the ugly women disappear.
Come and get my Oatmeal, Jeffs - I dare you.
Seriously, there have to be some really weak-minded people in FLDS land to fall for this stuff. Don’t hold your breath over Dec 21st 2012 either. A lot of nonsense. I’ll say it again come the New Year.
Michael Rood has studied the Bible for 40 years and his teaching are based on scripture and not of his visions or special interpretations. He goes to original sources when available.
He has a video where he lists a number of prophecies that remain to be filled prior to the second coming. I couldn't find it for you, but perhaps the above will be informative.
The second coming begins the start of a new age, not the end of the world, no matter how bad it gets.
IMO, Rood is closest to narrowing down the season, based on his studies, of anyone that I know. The Bible speaks of people going mad trying to interpret when the end of this age is going to occur. Just keep that in mind...
Why do people continue to believe in false prophets after they’ve been wrong time and time again? Democrat voters do the same thing with obama. They just keep believing.
So they are just going to float around in the sky until God finishes smashing everything else into itty bitty pieces?
Then God will say okay you can come down now — whats that you forgot your parachutes? AAiiiiiiiii! SPLAT!
When you have one too many wives you would probably want the world to end quickly.
I did see a Sign, just today.
While trying to access a page, had to type in a Captcha image which ominious said:
The End Is Near.
Especially when most of your wives still wear diapers.
Maybe he was really talking about the demise of Twinkies, which, to some, is worse than the end of the world.
“... Warren Jeffs has banned oatmeal, turnips and dairy products ...”
He has also proclaimed that all temple garments (AKA magic underwear) be worn on the outside of the clothes...
I read somewhere (supposedly true) that on Dec. 31, 999 AD, the faithful were told that the Millennium would arrive and therefore they had no need for property. They burned their houses, carts, etc. and expectantly waited on a hilltop. Their O Sh!t moment came at 12:01 am 1000 AD.
In more modern times one preacher said that Jesus would come to earth on a certain date and a magnificent house suitable for him should be built. The congregation chipped in and a beautiful house was built. Jesus was a No Show on the specified date. The preacher told the congregation that it would be a shame to have such a lovely home go to waste, so he moved in.
And now we have this bozo. His followers give fools a bad name.
Humans love their cargo cults.
“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” Matt 24:36 (NLT)
I guess he converted to Mayan while in prison. With all those Mexican gangs and all...
As he said, they’re nasty.
And I don't think He told Warren Jeffs!
Hey, you just gotta eat them raw with a little salt on them.
turnips are just darn disgusting.
No, theyre not. You can steam them, and mash them just like spuds. Great with butter. salt and pepper. They are also great in stir fries. There are a lot of ways to cook them, and you have obviously had the nasty ways of cooking them!
Anyway, like I was sayin’, turnips is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, turnip-kabobs, turnip creole, turnip gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple turnip, lemon turnip, coconut turnip, pepper turnip, turnip soup, turnip stew, turnip salad, turnip and potatoes, turnip burger, turnip sandwich. That- that’s about it.
Might just be a porcupine.
I thought that you shone the light of humor on our dismal situation. I feel better, already.
Why should the end-of-the-world prophecy be more alarming to our witless citizens than another four years of Obama? These people still don’t get it.
Would ugly women mean the majority? It is sad, but the pictures I’ve seen are not kind to them.
The end of the world and the new heaven and the new earth don’t occur until the end of the Great Tribulation and the beginning of the Millennial Kingdom. Since the Tribulation lasts seven years, the end of the world cannot happen this year or next year.
So do a lot of Baptists.
The last time they were lifted up they got as high as the tree tops and old man Sorensen lit up a cigarette and they all came crashing down.
I suspect they might not be as ugly as they appear if they lost all that braided hair and wore normal clothing.
A bit of makeup might help.
Ping to the Inmans.
We are only sixty miles away from Colorado City. Maybe Ill go over there on December 21 to watch the lifting up. I hope for certain the ugly women disappear.

LOL Binger. I’m betting if he gives a date it will Dec 23 - ol’ Joe Smith’s birthday.
