SALT LAKE CITY -- Ahead of a federal court hearing for a Fundamentalist LDS Church leader, some ex-members of the Utah-based polygamous sect tell KSTU they are hearing rumors Warren Jeffs has prophesied the end of the world -- again.

It is not the first time Warren Jeffs has proclaimed the end of days. In his writings, he repeatedly makes reference to the end of days.

"The day of the judgements of God have begun," Jeffs said in a 2005 dictation. "That day is upon us. And the judgments of God have begun with the House of God. And that means this is the day of his choosing."

In a 2012 dictation obtained by FOX 13, Jeffs declares that God has demanded he be freed from prison -- or else face His wrath.

"Now let my holy servant go free, lest I allow nation to feel my judgments," Jeffs wrote.
