In court today:

Jeffs continues to interrupt presentation of evidence. The jury is sent out. He continues to speak, then gets to reading this written statement to the court.

My statement being the Lord Jesus Christ's words as follows: I, the Lord God in Heaven, call upon the court to now cease this prosecution against my pure and holy way coming against my church. Let it stop now.I am the Lord God over all that speaketh. I will wrest your power from you. I shall judge you. I shall let all peoples know of your unjust ways. I shall send a scourge upon the counties of prosecutorial zeal to be humbled by sickness and death. Innocent people: Let this cease, lest you bring forth an eternal power of judgement upon your own lives. This being instructions by my God ... who is the God above all. Judge Walther: (About the jury) If you call for their disruption or in any way imply they will be damaged because of their service -Jeffs, interrupting: I'm not threatening, only relaying a message*Walther: Well, don't relay the message.
