Prophet predicts end of world
Death of LDS
Prophet will spur nuclear Armageddon
Freeborn, the "Parowan Prophet" emerges from his bomb shelter .
March 26, 2003
The temperature along the
Wasatch Front will be 11 million degrees at the end of the world if Leland
Freeborn is accurate.
Freeborn, self-proclaimed Parowan Prophet from Parowan, Utah, claims to have
seen the end of the world. After a plane wreck 20 years ago, Freeborn was in
a coma, which he said started his prophetic visions. During his coma, he
said God showed him the end of the world, which began with World War III.
According to Freeborn, the end of the world begins when Russia launches
nuclear missiles over the North Pole -- with Hill Air Force Base as a
never lived through an explosion,' Freeborn said. 'But I've
stood in the fire [in a vision], I've smelled the
smoke, I've felt the blast and the wind. God has
realistic videos that are fantastic.'
Freeborn's visions get grimmer.
'One million will die between Brigham City and St. George,' he said. 'If you
live beyond 10 miles of Hill Air Force Base don't
let the sun go down without a full tank of gas.' He suggested going there
because Cache Valley won't suffer as much damage
as the rest of northern Utah.
Freeborn said Russia will
attack because it thinks America is the modern-day Babylon, the center of
wealth and cruelty. With U.S. forces in Iraq, America cannot defend itself
and its ammunition dumps. In fact, the United States will have problems
defending itself in Operation Iraqi Freedom; it has underestimated Iraq's
'We will lose tens of thousands of our military,' Freeborn said. 'In less
than six weeks, we will use nukes.'
In a 1988 vision, an angel
took Freeborn to Babylon. There, Saddam Hussein has an underground germ
warfare complex. To destroy it, the United States will use nuclear bombs,
Freeborn said Russia is waiting for Gordon B. Hinckley, president of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to die before striking.
'I cannot tell you why God does what he does,' Freeborn said. 'I only have
to make some suppositions.'
In times of turmoil, it isn't unusual for people
to think about the end of the world, said Jeff Hurst,
Weber State University's counseling and
psychological services director.
'They could see prophecies of the end of the world with these events,' he
Science speaks up
Amid Freeborn's predictions of nuclear
Armageddon, Applied Geotechnical Engineering Consultants, Inc. geologist
Michael Davis has a scientific stance on the state of the
'There are very few natural events that could bring about an "end of the
world" scenario such as an impact with a celestial object,' Davis said. This
is what happened to the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. He pointed out that
the world did not end entirely.
'And the world continued, although for the dinosaurs it was the end,' he
If a nuclear catastrophe were to occur, the bombs" targets would be
destroyed due to the pressure of the explosion Davis said. The attack would
cause a nuclear winter where debris and dust block the sunlight, prevent
photosynthesis, would decrease temperatures and cause mass extinction of
Freeborn claims Russia will launch a nuclear assault against America, he
said the sickle will reap the earth.
Religions speak out
The LDS Church
believes in the 'latter-days': the belief in the end of the world, and the
beginning of the millennium. This is a time of peace; when Jesus will come
'Before he comes, there will be events that will be quite dramatic or
dynamic,' said Ronald Zollinger, Ogden LDS Institute of Religion instructor.
'He called these events "the last days."'
Members also believe Christ
predicted men such as Freeborn would call themselves prophets.
'Christ said there would be false prophets and some people will be deceived
by them,' Zollinger said.
While Zollinger does not agree with Freeborn, he said it is of interest for
followers of the LDS religion to read what Freeborn has to say because it
will bolster their own faith in their prophet -- Hinckley.
Freeborn is used to those kinds of statements.
would love to be a false prophet,' he said. 'Wonderful, great, if millions
of people go on living that's great.'
While the Roman Catholic Church believes in the Parousiah, Greek for the
second coming, they do differ somewhat from the LDS view. Unlike LDS doctrine,
which says the second coming has been foretold, Catholics do not know when
it will come.
'Who knows, maybe he is here right now, we ought to treat everyone as if he
was Jesus Christ in person,' said Father Charles T. Cummings, Newman Center
He said people should live every day like it's the
'If we live every day the best we can in our creator's
eyes, we don't have to worry about the end of the
world,' Cummings said. 'Fear will cripple us more than getting hit by a
Doing what seems right
'I used to cry a lot more than I do now,' Freeborn said about the
disbelief of others in regards to his visions.
In Parowan, he is well known by most of the town's
2,500 residents for his visions and warnings to prepare.
Parowan Police Chief Wayne Townsend said Freeborn is an interesting member
of the community.
"They [city council] may think his intentions are
good, but they don't take what he has to say to
heart,' Townsend said of Freeborn's warnings.
As visions come, Freeborn sits in his 127-year-old house and places
information about what he has seen on the Internet for others. In his eyes,
he has done all he can; it is up to individuals to prepare or perish.
'People don't want to hear what I have to say
because I've got a somber, sad message about the start of World War III and
the destruction of 100 million people in the United States.'
Time after time I keep telling
reporters that I have never said the world is going to end. But that does not
catch the eyes of the scoffers. They want a catchy headline.
So what do you think will happen after we lose
thousands of our soldiers? We will realize that
and we have to fight to win
or we all shall be killed. Then
Iraq will get “Nuked” and millions die, as I have said
on radio programs since the 1988 revelation that I received. That
the fallout will pass over into Iran and kill people
there also. In this war,
do you want to die? Them or us? Then Iranian
troops in the North will try to out-flank the US Military and much blood will be
shed in Kurdish country in the north. President Bush has said that Iran is part
of “the Axis of Evil” in the past and they know it. They will unite with their
fellow Muslims in Turkey, and will really fight against us, as Egypt will also.
When Russia has Nuked the USA the entire Moslem world of a billion people will
fight us. All of our efforts to help our enemies with humanitarian needs will
be forgotten. They will be out for our blood and death; so they don’t need us

faith will not be shaken if the highest in the Church should step aside.

He has given them, that in the exercise of their agency He designs to exalt them

So do you really want to be a "true Mormon?"
What does that mean?
Definition of "Mormon" and Language of the Book of Mormon.
"The error I speak of
is the definition of the word
It has been stated that this word was derived from the
Greek word mormo. This is
not the case. There was
no Greek or Latin upon
the plates from which I, through the grace of the Lord, translated the Book of
Mormon. Let the language of the book speak for itself.
On the 523rd page of the fourth edition, it reads: "And now, behold we have
written this record according to our knowledge in the characters which are
called among us the Reformed Egyptian, being handed down and altered by us,
according to our manner of speech; and if our plates had been sufficiently
large, we should have written in Hebrew; but the Hebrew hath been altered by us
also; and if we could have written in Hebrew, behold, ye would have had no
imperfection in our record, but the Lord knoweth the things which we have
written, and also that none other people knoweth our language; therefore he hath
prepared means for the interpretation thereof."
"Here, then, the subject is put to silence; for "none
other people knoweth our language"; therefore the Lord, and not man, had to
interpret, after the people were all dead. And, as Paul
said, "The world by wisdom know not God"; so the world by speculation are
destitute of revelation; and as God in his superior wisdom has always
given his Saints, wherever he had any on the earth; the same spirit, and that
spirit, as John says is the true spirit of prophecy, which is the testimony of
Jesus. I may safely say that the word Mormon stands
independent of the wisdom and learning of this generation. . . .
Mormon, means literally, more good.
