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.

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 ;-)
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
