FULL TITLE: Warren Jeffs tells followers to ‘prepare for end of the world’ by January 1 as experts warn it could mean something sinister for the sect loyal to a convicted sex offender
Followers of cult leader, Warren Jeffs, who is behind bars for sexually assaulting young girls, are reportedly preparing for the end of the world tomorrow, after their former leader warned of Armageddon before midnight.
The only supermarket and major meeting point of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints community across the movement’s key sites – Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah – has been closed, and an expert in the sect has warned CNN the preparations could be a dangerous signal.
Sam Brower, a private investigator who represents more than 100 former FLDS members, said law enforcement officers will monitor the situation in Jeffs’ community closely – rather than just dismissing it as another false Armageddon warning from the radical preacher.
The consensus seems to be that Warren is indicating that by the end of the year, the end of the world will be here’, he told CNN.
Alluding to the proclamation’s sinister implications, he added: ‘Jim Jones, Koresh – history has showed us these things happen when religious zealots take charge of a group of people.’
The community, which has up to 10,000 members worldwide, appears to remain loyal to their ‘prophet’ even though he is serving life plus 20 years for sexually abusing children.
CNN reporters approached residents to ask them about Jeffs’ alleged latest claim but they refused to comment.
