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 target.

'I've 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 strength.
'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, killing thousands.
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 said.
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 4.5-billion-year-old planet.
'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 said.
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 life.


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 again.
'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.

'I 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 director.
He said people should live every day like it's the last.
'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 car.'

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 w
hat do you think will happen after we lose thousands of our soldiers? We will realize that this
is war 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, who 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 at all.
What good is a watchdog that can’t bark? Or a prophet that doesn’t tell you what will happen?  Realize that God controls the weather. Just as he makes a prophet.

“And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
10 And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him.”       Ezekiel 14: 9-10    
You don’t have to ask me!
Get your own revelations.  You will bring your own death. I have tried to warn you.

See Isaiah 28 the entire chapter, and hypocrites take notice.
Ezekiel 34: 1-15 if you care about living another year.

“Do not brethren, put your trust in man though he be a bishop, an apostle, or a
president. If you do, they will fail you at some time or place; they will do wrong or seem to, and your support is gone; but if we lean on God, He never will fail us. When men and women depend on God alone, and trust in Him alone, their faith will not be shaken if the highest in the Church should step aside. Perhaps it is His own design that faults and weaknesses should appear in high places in order that His Saints may learn to trust in Him, and not in any man or men.”   George Q. Cannon, Millennial Star, 53: 674

“We can see now that a few who have relied upon others, who have sought the counsel of their file leaders and have depended upon that counsel when they can no longer reach those leaders, falter and fall by the wayside. I believe that God intends that every man and every woman in His Church and kingdom shall exercise the faculties which He has given them, that in the exercise of their agency He designs to exalt them in eternal glory. So long therefore as the people rely upon their leaders they are not manifesting that degree of faith, they are not in a position to think and reflect for themselves as they should.”  Journal of Discourses 26: 328  
      Apostle Moses Thatcher, October 8, 1885

“The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.  CLICK HERE
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.”    Isaiah 9: 15-16

prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”      Jeremiah 5: 31  

“There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.
26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.       CLICK HERE to see about the Sabbath.
27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.
28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken.”   Ezekiel 22: 25-28  

There are whole quorums of pretend, fake, phony, false prophets.

“For it shall come to pass that the inhabitants of Zion shall judge all things pertaining to Zion.
And liars and hypocrites shall be proved by them, and they who are not apostles and prophets shall be known.” 
Doctrine and Covenants 64: 38-39  

So now go back and read current leaders comments and compare the Facts with what the good old-timers, pioneer leaders said.

“Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother. (Church) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”       Hosea 4: 5-6   

“O Lord, I have trusted in thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh; for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in the arm of flesh. Yea, cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his arm.
35 Yea, I know that God will give liberally to him that asketh. Yea, my God will give me, if I ask not amiss; therefore I will lift up my voice unto thee; yea, I will cry unto thee, my God, the rock of my righteousness. Behold, my voice shall forever ascend up unto thee, my rock and mine everlasting God.”      2Nephi 4: 34-35  

“. . . if anything should have been suggested by us, or any names mentioned, except by commandment, or thus saith the Lord, we do not consider it binding.”     TPJS 136      Joseph Smith, Documented History of the Church.”   Volume 3: 295  

“O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.
5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.
6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.
9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was
no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar.”       Ezekiel 13: 4-10  CLICK HERE see Peace, Peace.

“And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.
13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is
no peace.” |
Jeremiah 6: 12-15 

“... I told them that a prophet was a prophet only when he was acting as such.”    Joseph Smith in Teaching of the Prophet Joseph Smith  278  Also Documentary History of the Church, 5: 268  

“Behold, you have been entrusted with these things, but how strict were your commandments; and remember also the promises which were made to you, if you did not transgress them.
6 And behold, how oft you have transgressed the commandments and the laws of God, and have gone on in the persuasions of men.
7 For, behold, you should not have feared man more than God. Although men set at naught the counsels of God, and despise his words-
8 Yet you should have been faithful; and he would have extended his arm and supported you against all the fiery darts (missiles) of the adversary; and he would have been with you in every time of trouble.
9 Behold, thou art Joseph, and thou wast chosen to do the work of the Lord, but because of transgression, if thou art not aware thou wilt fall.
10 But remember, God is merciful; therefore, repent of that which thou hast done which is contrary to the commandment which I gave you, and thou art still chosen, and art again called to the work;
11 Except thou do this, thou shalt be delivered up and become as other men, and have no more gift.”  
Doctrine and Covenants 3:5-11 What was said to Joseph should apply to each of us. Will you truly repent? Or die soon?

“There is not
any person belonging to the church who is exempt from this council of the church.
82 And inasmuch as a President of the High Priesthood shall transgress, he shall be had in remembrance before the common council of the church, who shall be assisted by twelve counselors of the High Priesthood.”     Doctrine and Covenants 107: 81-82  
Today hypocritical leaders and teachers lead millions to their death. They don't believe what true prophets say. They reject it.

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. . . .
The word Mormon, means literally, more good. (HC 5:399-400.)

Will you do your friends more good or scoff at a prophet?
