Jeffs revelation promises "Celestial love-power"

The Utah attorney general got another large shipment of Warren Jeffs revelations today.

There were a grand total of 21 revelations, totaling about 54 pages, according to UTAG spokesman Paul Murphy. Most of those were repeats, but there were five new ones from January, and a couple from October and December that appear new to me.

I don't have copies of all the new revelations yet, but I uploaded the ones I do have to the Big Warren Jeffs Revelations Calendar. Check it out here.

But the most interesting revelation Murphy sent over today was one that came in a couple weeks ago (and Ben Winslow has reported on as well.) It starts out on familiar notes of "a fire eternal of all-consuming power" as punishment for "the murder of unborn children."

Then, towards the end, it takes an interesting twist: A preview, apparently, into what's coming for those who are among the chosen.

"... eternal power Celestial love-power of my inspiring" and "full power of pure holy love-power over all; that shall quench the violent way with love-joy and joyful love peace"

This revelation is dated Jan. 1, around the same time Jeffs and other FLDS leaders reportedly barred up to 1,500 members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from church, saying they were "unworthy" to attend church.
