THE NAVY AND NASA HAVE ESTABLISHED THAT IN
EVERY PHYSICAL SENSE THE OZARK PLATEAU IS THE SAFEST PLACE ON EARTH
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS
CONFIRMED TO SOME THAT MUCH OF THE OZARKS MAY BE SPIRITUALLY AND DIVINELY
Then Elisha prayed and said, "O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may
see " And the LORD opened the servant's eyes and he saw; and behold, the
mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
~2 Kings 6:17
One more point that rounds
out this testimony. In 1974 the Lord told me that my life's commission was
to prepare His people for a coming economic crash. No one believed
me in 74, 84, or 94. Just a few did in 2004, but now they do ... in
All of these testimonials
were greatly abbreviated so as to make the poignant point. If you want the
full version, I can provide it. We are very blessed to be in a
divinely protected place that was prepared for such a time as this.
Of course there are other safe places around the world. I am just saying
that this is the one I was sent to and was give all this confirmation for.
In 1986 while living on a
blueberry farm, the Lord gave me the name and logo for my ministry.
ArkHaven (in reference to Noah's Ark and the Ark of the covenant) is God's
place of provision, protection, and promise.
In 1999 the Holy Spirit told me that Y2K was
going to be a non-event,
but it would blind people to the REAL event to prepare for.
In eschatological terms,
the times leading into the Tribulation period (from 1948 when Israel
became a nation until the first day of the Tribulation period). The
time is short to adequately prepare for that day, physically, mentally,
and especially spiritually. By preparation I refer to a self sufficient
community of like minded Christians adopting an agrarian lifestyle that
has proven itself to work the best of all lifestyles over the past 6,000
years. And since I am an Acts model (the whole book) Christian, I wish to
go into community with other Acts model Christians.
I would rather be one year too early than 10 minutes too late in moving
where God told me to go.

three quarters of Americans move every five years ... so chances are
pretty good that you could be relocating again. Obviously, moves are
often driven by major life transitions, like a new job, a marriage, or
retirement. And sometimes you don't really have much of a choice in your
But quite often, you do
have a choice. And that's important, because ...
One of the very best
things you can do to live and survive hard times is to move where the
likelihood of major events affecting you is minimized.
There are plenty of places
like that in the United States ... as long as you think critically and
evaluate your options using the right criteria.
The above map shows the
purported location of three of the five divinely protected areas in the
USA, North West Arkansas being one of them. The next map shows the
other two areas.
Here is the story behind
this map: A friend of mine gave me a copy of this map around 1990.
A friend of his says five prophetic men (who did not know each other and
had never met) where directed by the Holy Spirit to meet with each other
hotel in Chicago.
After they arrived and discerned who the others were, they rented a room
and began to discuss the things the Holy Spirit had directed them to share
with each other.
One of the things they
purportedly discussed was divinely protected areas where Christians
would go to not just survive when national disaster struck, but to save a
lot of lives and to
Christ to the refugees that would gather there at that time.
They turned to the page on
an Atlas map that shows the continental United States and each in turn
drew a circle around an area the Holy Spirit had shown them to be a
The map is like prophecy and
needs to be judged as such. In fact, it was generated by purportedly
prophetic brothers at the meeting in Chicago. Even if I had the
source, it would make no difference. It’s either supported by the
Holy Spirit, or it isn’t.
Keep in mind that this does
not mean there are not more divinely protected areas in the USA, or that
these circled areas are entirely accurate. I can only attest to the
one area I personally was shown, and that is the North West corner of
Arkansas, an area much smaller that the area shown on the above map.
The Holy Spirit called this divinely protected area "A Green Island of
Survival." But Jerry Diamond was given the same message for an adjacent
area in Missouri.
It can be a matter of
semantics as to what terms we use to define these relatively safe areas.
Here are some terms I have heard: safe spots spotted across the globe.
Safe areas, locations, divinely protected areas, places of refuge, Goshen,
Arks, angel covering or covered, hidden from danger, etc. But the
most descriptive term of all is ... Green Island of Survival!
The Law Of
What I call the law of
uniformity applies to where safe places will be. Whether we are
talking a forest fire or a flood, the larger the area effected the
less uniform the damage will be, and the smaller the area the more
uniform the damage will be. The law of uniformity says some areas will
be far less affected than others. So there will be safer places within
Think of the size of the
world, then the size of the USA, then the size of the Ozark Plateau.
The Ozarks being the smallest, is till several thousand square miles of
land. Perspective! Trust! Peace IN Christ Jesus!
Being led of the Holy Spirit. We must ask the Lord where He wants
us to be, and then be obedient to go/be there. These are the factors
that make all the difference in the world.

SURVIVAL" IN OZARK PLATEAU
The radius from the center to
the black dots is 100 miles.
This map was put together by Jerry Diamond who lives in Missouri.
You may call Jerry at 417-988-0333
Independently of each
other, Jerry and I feel that the Holy Spirit told us years ago that this
general area is "a green island of survival."
In the first part of
a blog letter by Jerry Diamond, he refers to the prophecy in Revelation
7 of the four corners of the earth and then speculates on how that might
come about and what it could potentially do to America.
Bible prophecy will come to pass, but the particulars are not very
clear sometimes. I think you will find it interesting to know. I
had never given it a thought. The first part of his article is on
the 4 corners and the second part is on showing scientific documentation
that shows how protected a major part of the Ozark mountains (the part
shown in his map) are.
Corrie ten Boom Prophecies over North West Arkansas
Here are some
prophecies over north west Arkansas that you will find interesting.
I (Ken) have known Julie Turner for around 25 years, and my testimony
is also in her Corner Gathering newspaper. I also knew Joseph
Heath. He interviewed me and wrote an article on my testimony,
and he published a number of my articles around 20 years ago.
The Lord told me to move to north west Arkansas in 1983 (from
Illinois), and I finally made the move in 85. But I had made
several trips here before that time and met a man who told me about
Corrie ten Boom, etc. There are several versions of the Corrie
ten Boom vision (that have become ledgend) out there, so as a
disclaimer let me say that the account I was told was told to me
face-to-face by the man who was a ghost writer for Corrie.
He told me he was present with Corrie when she had this vision.
Yet, just to be cautious and fair, the lady who was Corrie's care take
for the last 7 years of her life said Corrie never was in Arkansas.

God has allowed me to see them, beginning in my book "Getting Out of
Babylon", and flowing from there; the need for gardening, and the fact
that the garden will be worth more than gold, the need for "meat on the
hoof, and crops in the ground" seeing people with land allowing people
to make their land fruitful, this region turning into a nation, writing
just a month or so ago that this region is fertile enough to provide
pasture for ten times more cattle, goats and sheep than it has, and that
people from other states can and will bring their herds here...and about
two weeks after that, finding out that my son has in progress the
purchase of yet another farm, and that a herd from Colorado is going to
be shipped here, b/c the man can have his cows pasture fed as they were
bred to do, cheaper than he is paying a feed lot to feed them...whatever
they are being fed...WOW!...even right up to last night, learning about

stated just prior to discovering about the aquifers, and the springs,
that this is not an Area of Operation, i.e., flat and 2-Dimensional, but
that it is a Sphere of Operation, that it is, it is
3-Dimensioanl, i.e. down into the ground, and up into the atmosphere and
ionosphere. Then right after that, I discover all about the Springs and
Aquifers, but I had faith to say it before I was given proof that it was

favorable terrain, natural resources, and like-minded Remnant people,
but also supernaturally if and when need be; defending his remnant by
giving ear to their prayers when attacked by (drone?) aircraft to the
point that those aircraft will cease to even travel into the region.
regard to the ground structure underneath the region, I discovered that
the earth under this region is part of the Craton, the oldest, deepest,
and most unmoved part of the earth's crust...and that it is referred to
using the word SPHERE 12 times in one short article, b/c it goes down so
deeply...get this...more than twice the normal 60 miles!!! That means it
is over 100 miles deep, and matches beautifully, the 100 mile
radius geographically flat area, which I initially saw back in '98 or
so, 2 dimensionally around Springfield.

Elevation map of the Ozarks.
DESCRIPTION OF THE OZARK MOUNTAINS
The Ozarks (also
referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, the Ozark Mountains, and the
Ozark Plateau) are a
geologic highland region of the central
United States. It covers much of the southern half of
Missouri and an extensive portion of northwestern and north central
Arkansas. The region also extends westward into northeastern
Oklahoma and extreme southeastern
Kansas. The wooded
Shawnee Hills of southwest
Illinois, though commonly called the "Illinois Ozarks," are
generally not considered part of the true Ozarks.
Although referred to
as the Ozark Mountains, the region is actually a high and deeply
dissected plateau. Geologically, the area is a broad
dome around the
Saint Francois Mountains.
The Ozark Highlands
area, covering nearly 47,000 square miles (122,000 km2), is by far the
most extensive mountainous region between the
Appalachians and the
Together, the Ozarks
Ouachita Mountains form an area known as the
U.S. Interior Highlands, and are sometimes referred to collectively.
For example, the
Ozark Mountain Forests includes the Ouachita Mountains, although the
Arkansas River valley and the Ouachitas, both south of the
Boston Mountains, are not usually considered part of the Ozarks.
Ozark also refers to
a region of people with a distinct culture,
dialect shared by the people who live on the plateau. Early settlers
American pioneers who came West from the
Southern Appalachians at the beginning of the 19th century,
followed in the 1840s and 1850s by
German immigrants. Much of the Ozark population is of English,
Scots-Irish, and German descent, often including some
Native American ancestry, and the Ozark families from which the
regional culture derived
tend to have lived in the area since the 19th century.

BEST PLACES TO DRILL FOR A
WATER WELL IN THE OZARKS
Where to Research
A lot can be determined by some good old-fashioned research. There’s
actually a fair amount of information about groundwater available
online. The first source to try is the
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
Their Arkansas groundwater
map can be seen at: http://pubs.usgs.gov/ha/730f/report.pdf T
hey publish quite a bit of data
about groundwater, including a groundwater atlas of the country which
shows all the aquifers. There also are a number of
can be useful.
The USGS also has a network of several thousand test wells that they
monitor on a constant basis. These wells provide data on water table
levels and aquifer levels. They can provide you with information about
what the exact water level is at the time of drilling and whether it is
In addition to federal information, many states also have information
about groundwater availability. What exact information is available will
depend on the state you live in. But many states require a permit for
well drilling, which means they have a database of all wells, their
depths, the water quality and the amount of water flow they produce.
This information can be useful in determining what the average depth is
in your area. Simply look for several wells that are nearby.
One way this data may be presented is a “water availability map”
which shows how much groundwater availability there is for any one area,
as well as the depth of that water. This is the type of information that
a hydrologist would use in creating a study of your land.
Of course, well drilling contractors have a pretty good idea about
the water conditions in your area, where water can be found, the
underground geology, and how deep of a well you’ll need to reach good
water. While they would rather drill the well for you, most will act as
consultants for a fee.
There is an incredible amount of controversy over the subject of
dowsing, often referred to in the negative sense as water witching.
This ancient practice is seen by many to be just to the left of
witchcraft. But the practice has been in use for hundreds, if not
thousands, of years.
Water dousers use a
forked stick, a pair of bent wires, or a plumb bob to find where to
drill a well. When using the forked stick, the stick bends towards the
ground when they pass over water. With the wires, the wires cross. So
there is a clear indication of where water can be found.
The idea has been
studied scientifically, with surprising results. A lot depends on how
the actual test was conducted. In tests where they are expected to find
water in underground pipes, water dousers are unsuccessful. But when
they are asked to find naturally-occurring water in the ground, their
success rate is much too high to be
There is a
nationwide organization of water dowsers, called the
American Society of
Dowsers (ASD). The society has more than 4,200 members and may be

(396,000), wheat (533,000), sugar beets (907,000), grapes (164,000), and
barley (365,000). About 124 million liters (33 million gallons) of wine
are produced annually. Dairy products make up a significant portion of
Switzerland's agricultural sector. Each year in the early 1990s some 3.8
million metric tons of cow's milk and 134,600 metric tons of cheese were

"The Missouri, Arkansas,
Oklahoma Ozark Mountains is the highest rated relocation area between
the Appalachians and the Rockies. If you are informed enough to see the
wisdom of relocating, I would encourage you to consider the Ozarks for
the following reasons: hills and mountains, many rivers, abundant
forests and wildlife, proper elevations, moderate 4 season climate,
variety of crop/livestock options, low cost real estate, and a remote
location with friendly people. As a former MO real estate agent and

at this question in light of the following ten criteria:
1. Consider all of the
applicable prophecies in the bible, like Ezekiel 38-39. If you will
ignore all of the misinterpretations foisted on your mind by blind
leading the blind teachers, and honestly consider every single
descriptive characteristic of this passage, you will see for your self
that this passage is descriptive, in most of those cases, of America,
and almost all of them, only of America, of all nations in all of
Along with other varied sources below, please at least note this one:
I quoted a good
statement by Brandon Smith of
and then commented on it:
"Unfortunately, most of us
are going to see our lives change in extreme ways whether we are ready
for it or not. My goal is that people will see that fact, and make
changes on their OWN, before events force the issue. I really hope that
readers here are not expecting to be able to make necessary preparations
AFTER the collapse occurs, instead of before. If so, then I'm afraid
they will find themselves not only seriously disappointed, but also in
Brandon...It has been
almost two years since you wrote that, but what you say above, is 100%
correct. I hope some people listened. To imagine that AFTER a collapse,
and or CIVIL WAR, OR TOTAL ANARCHY, OR MARTIAL LAW...OR INVASION...that
it will be easier to re-locate...is just not in any way, shape or form,
based on anything in history, reality, common sense, etc.
I have said for twelve years: "YOU CAN DRIVE NOW...OR WALK LATER."
It appears that the
majority seem to be planning to vote with their feet...like Chuck
Baldwin did figuratively...except they will be doing their voting with
their feet literally.
Instead of being part of the solution, they will become a part of the
Brandon, you have a host
of good ideas. You have a lot of solid thinking. The only area that I
hope you will re-evaluate is a big one: you have heard in relation to a
lot of things like sales, real estate, business, etc, that there are
three important things to consider: Location, Location, and Location.
That is absolutely the case in this relocation consideration.
Obviously. Nobody has the time, or the resources to make a really bad
mistake on this issue. Please study it carefully, before proceeding.
The extremely late-in-the-game idea of Montana, Wyoming, etc suddenly
being advertised as "The Redoubt States," is not a good one. Think about
it like this: With the Super Bowl coming up...you pick the year & the
winning team, ie the 1985 Bears, the Steelers in 75, 78, or 79, 76
Raiders, 72 Dolphins, 66 Packers, you get the idea...the week before the
Super Bowl of that year, the head coach of the challenging team decides
to change all their plays, change quarterbacks for a rookie, and not
bother to require practice all week before the game. What would be their
chances of success? The same exact scenario is playing out right now,
except that instead of a fat ring on their left hand (or not) and a few
grand, people are risking their life fortune as well as the lives of
Even a superficial study of geography, military strategy, and history
would readily prove that. People are planning to move to the border of
this country; a border which will prove to be far more dangerous than
the Southern border. Study the Canadian Highways; what is there to
prevent Russia from traversing Canada in force? NOTHING. What is the
next force they will encounter? Flathead Valley, with a few ill-prepared
preppers to man the Redoubt which they have been suckered into? How long
would they last?
2. Consider all of
these diverse factors that also line up with water supplies: rainfall,
streams, ponds, wells, an aquifer system that guarantees that anywhere
you drill, you will get water, and over 20 springs over a million
gallons an hour:
ONLY the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd magnitude springs, there is 2.5 BILLION
GALLONS OF WATER PER DAY COMING OUT OF THE GROUND -CREATING RIVERS,
fishing? Just live near one of the many trout hatcheries....
3. Consider all of these
diverse factors that also line up with reality of the situation: i.e.,
the only thing in reality which can happen for millions of families, to
flee by car, and on foot (I put it like this: You Can Drive Now Or Walk
Later) to a common region which is capable of supporting huge numbers of
4. Consider all of these
diverse factors that also line up with what Jesus said to do: >...when
you see these things, flee to the mountains...<
I address these multitude of factors mentioned above, in my book:
Then...try to apply ALL OF THOSE criteria to ANY OTHER
REGION, OR COUNTRY, OR LAND MASS, OR ANY LOCATION OF ANY KIND ANYWHERE
ON THIS PLANET...AND COMPARE THE RESULTS OF BOTH >SCORES< IF YOU WILL.
You will find that there is no comparison whatever.
There is no region, nor has there ever existed on this planet a region
like this one at this most crucial juncture point in time and space...
In FACT; there is no other place on this planet where there is a valley
which is so huge that it can be seen from space, which runs east and
west, and which was caused by a huge mountain mass being split, one side
to the north, and one to the south. Interesting, utterly unique, and
most singular peculiarity, that...
can be called an anomaly, even a singularity!!!
In summary, this is from the Ozarks’
first online magazine!
"These old hills are home to a people...."
Succinct, actually, short, sweet, hard to beat.
I like the conclusion, especially the last passage;
Life in these hills was hard.
Out of that hardness was bred a people —
a people defined as stalwart,
A people self-reliant.
To define the Ozark region by its culture?
Some would say these peoples are a microcosm of all that makes the
United States what it is.
This State of the Ozarks.<
I have heard it said, in regard to Missouri, but specifically the
Plateau, "we could close the borders and be just fine." Geographically,
demographically, etc, SW MO, along with a chunk of NW AR, some of NE OK,
and SE KS, and you have an extremely cohesive region, with borders
defined by the terrain, water, ranches, farms, forests, and people who
OCCUPY that region.
We need to localize food, industry, energy and currency. If we do that,
we may someday see a people, and a region, with a vast difference in its
"survival quotient" from the rest of the nation. This area has
traditionally been considered one of the poorest and roughest areas of
the country to make a living.
I hold that is perhaps the wealthiest, and
certainly safest place to ride out the storms headed our way.
"LIFEBOAT or ARK OZARKS?...The Ozarks remain one of
the prime refugias of the planet. "
the meaning of the word "refugium" is refuge or hideaway; in some
cases known as wellness area for relaxation and recovering. (Refugias:
An area that has escaped ecological changes occurring elsewhere and so
provides a suitable habitat for relict species. A special place on
Earth that is a sanctuary for beleaguered and refugee species.)
this helps...maybe it will help even one or two >Christian Survivalists<
who might be lurking
FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH
I am unclear of the exact area the Ozark Plateau encompasses and WHY it
is considered so perfect. One concern is the many prophecies from Cayce
and Scallion and even the US Navy Submariners that say the Mississippi
River will purportedly expand to upwards of 100 miles wide in the coming earth
changes slash pole shift slash fill in the blank.
What are the attributes of the area that make it so great...as you see
Answer: I am trying to get as much concentrated, useful information
out to people as possible, so they can use it to speed up their
preparedness, and eliminate wasted time, finances, resources and lives
--none of which we have to spare.
To try to answer your
question, I will address several areas that relate to the geography of
the Ozarks. This, of necessity, will involve topics which are a critical
part of the Big Picture, even though not intrinsically geographical in
First, you made good points about Cayce,
Scallion and the US Navy.
Now, Why the similarity? The first two are strange and diverse sources,
both in time and background. Why then, does the US Navy so closely
match their ideas? Major Ed Dames developed Remote Viewing, and the US
Military gives heed to that. Perhaps that is why.
The Fact is, high level US Government Officials of every branch, US
Special Forces, and retired Pentagon Officials have been moving to the
Ozarks for decades now. Would it not just make sense that they might
know something the rest of us are not clued into? If you look at the
training and background of the thousands of people like Jesse Ventura (UWD
/ Navy Seal) and John Moore, you should realize that listening to them
might be wiser than listening to businessmen, pastors, and authors who
have not been privy to whatever insider info Moore, et all have had
access to. You specifically mentioned the US NAVY. And I repeatedly hear
Navy Seals retire here, not just Army Rangers, or Army Intelligence, so
maybe...it has something to do with knowing something about the future
Ocean Levels, etc. So, let's start there:
1. GOOD PLACE TO LIVE IF OCEAN LEVELS RISE
may seem strange to some, but in the bible, twice it speaks of the four
corners of the earth
Isaiah 11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for
the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather
together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
In the second one, it
includes a connection to four angels:
Revelation 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four
corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind
should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. If
it happens as described below, there will be no safe coastline in
Hummm...perhaps something like a really large Plateau which used to be
I have a question; Do you
believe the Bible?
Twice in scripture, a phrase is used; "the four corners of the earth."
What is a corner? Kanaph (hebrew)> Kanphe? >Kanape?>
Kanapy? >Kanopy? >Canopy? Cornucopia? Cornice? A MOUNDED, OR RAISED
The Bible describes the most sacred part of the altar, these were the
four horns on the corners which symbolized God's power and might which
pointed to the four corners of the earth (Exodus 27:2. God was clear
that his salvation is for everyone, providing that the approach his way.
from the prophecy found in the Bible Book of Revelation 7:1-3 we read
the following: “After these things I saw four angels standing at the
four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the
wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I
saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living
God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was
granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth,
the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on
limited understanding causes him to be skeptical of this prophecy by
immediately questioning the statement about the angels standing at “the
four corners of the earth.” But God’s truth is always greater than the
limited understanding of men as is proven by this article from the June
19, 1965 edition of Science Newsletter (#87:390) which is titled, “Earth
Has Four Corners.”
Quoting from this article,
which was recovered from microfilm at the Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak
Library, we read the following: “The Earth has four corners,
measurements made of earth-circling satellites have shown…The
four-cornered, or pyramid-like, design was found by calculating the
changes in the orbits of globe-girdling satellites. At the center of the
high points, the satellites were pulled downward a few hundred feet by
the unexpectedly high gravity.
The new figure for earth was found by
scientists at John Hopkin’s Applied Physics Laboratory in Silver Spring,
Md., working under a contract for the U.S. Navy’s Bureau of Naval
included a world map that shows all four of the Earth’s high corners are
located in the Earth’s oceans and that there are also four low spots,
which are additionally found in the vast oceans. Each of the high spots
covers several thousand square miles of ocean and were a staggering 220
feet “higher” than what the equalized average depth of the ocean should
be in that area. The low points on the other hand are apx. 253 feet
“below” [what should be] the stabilized oceans average.
perplexing question is, “What is holding back these seething mountains
of water from rushing to fill the low spots?”
understanding of gravity demands that these elevated waters respond to
its downward pull.
scientifically supported answer is found revealed clearly in God’s Word.
Quoting from Rev. Ch. 7:1 we once more read the following prophecy:
“After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of
the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not
blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.”
to David Ebaugh, an Electronics Engineer who worked with the very first
satellites to discover the 4 ocean high points, it was determined that
prevailing winds are producing surface friction upon the water, which in
turn causes these thousands of square miles of ocean to mass up to such
jet streams were not only found to be the cause of the high spots as they
curve upward, but that they also cause the low spots where the winds
blow downward, pushing the water away.
obvious question of paramount importance is, “What will happen when the
4 angels of God stop these winds from blowing?”
the latter part of verse 2 of Rev. 7 we find the answer to this
question, “And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it
was granted to harm the earth and the sea.” These words are more
incredible proof that the only true God is warning a rebellious world of
things to come.
winds stop blowing as prophesied, all of the oceans will seek their own
level. Tidal waves of truly monstrous proportions will form as thousands
upon thousands of square miles of ocean race with incredible building
momentum towards the low spots. When the tremendous accumulated kinetic
energy from these tidal waves crash against and over the low lying
continents and islands, vast areas of land will suddenly disappear.
averaging just over 200 ft. above sea level will suddenly become oceans,
seas and great salt lakes. Crustal changes will take place upon the
earth under the great pressures and violent redistribution of the
earth’s waters. Land will suddenly appear where it has not been seen
since the great flood of Noah’s day as presently heightened ocean
locations retreat to new areas.
certainly the earth will be harmed in that day, but then what of the
waters cover the landmasses, inconceivable pollution of the Oceans will
take place as toxic waste dumps, nuclear plants, chemical factories and
sewage plants are suddenly submerged under water.
energy of the tidal waves is exhausted and the waters retreat to ocean
average, the injury will continue as arable lands, lakes, streams and
aquifers remain contaminated by toxic pollutants, decaying animals and
of course, salt.
knowledge no calculations are presently available as to how large of
tidal waves will be produced by this devastating judgment from God, nor
how far inland the initial momentum of the raging waters will invade
have been realized by now, the critical factor of who will receive the
brunt of these cataclysms is determined by where a land mass is found in
relationship to where the low spots of the Oceans are located.
Ocean’s high spots are located off of Ireland, Peru, Madagascar and the
first two low points are found off of India and Antarctica.
last two are found off of the East and West coasts of North America by
California and Florida.
the following examples for what lies in store for the United States:
California is 74 ft. below what will be future ocean average, Florida is
187 ft. below and Washington is 212 ft. below.
7:1 God also made mention that the winds will not blow “on any tree.”
Keep this in mind when considering the complications which will arise
with crop pollination.
EDITORS NOTE: In
Revelation 7 is where the 7'th (last) trumpet is blown and the wrath of
God is released immediately after His saints have been caught up to Him.
So the sealed ones (in Rev. 7: 1-3) will not experience all the
disasters that will take place at the culmination of the seven trumpets.
But those who are left behind will experience these horrors. This is the
teaching of the Pre Wrath eschatology.
EDITORS NOTE: The Ozark mountains are in fact hills and wouldn't
make a noticeable bump on the Alpine mountains, or mountains of
Afghanistan, or the Rock Mountains. The elevation of the Ozark
mountains is around 1,000 to 2,000 feet, well above flooding levels, but
a four wheeler can drive to the top of most of them. So from the
perspective of being defensible physically, as those great mountain
ranges are, that is a little far fetched. Physically no!
EDITORS NOTE: There are many maps that show many
variations on the theme of
Futurist flooded areas on the North American continent. Quite
frankly I am very skeptical of all of them. But since this is
believed or anticipated as a possibility by so many, it seemed helpful
to offer these maps.
This map shows the Ozarks as an island surrounded by water.
The 1998-2012 date now past, and shape of "island" does not match shape
of Ozark Plateau.
This map shows a different flooding pattern, but these
Futurist flooded areas
maps do vary a lot
B. Geologists Tell Us That The Ozark Plateau
Was Indeed Once An Island
An Interesting bit of Ozark Plateaus History:

several hundred million years....
The seas encroached during the late Cambrian producing the LaMotte
sandstone, 200 to 300 feet (61 to 91 m) thick, followed by
formed around the granite and rhyolite islands in this Cambrian sea.
Arkansas is notable for the karstic features. Many of these features
include sinkholes, conduit springs, and large caves. A sinkhole can be
defined as an oval shaped depression that is formed from the dissolution
of carbonate bedrock. The Ozark aquifer has generally less sinkholes
than the Springfield aquifer. These sinkholes are important because this
is where recharge enters the aquifer directly. Springs are also a major
aspect of the aquifer system. Springs are where discharge from the
aquifer flow to the surface and emerge out onto the surface of the land.
Many of these springs are located on the sides of steep valleys. Mammoth
Spring is the largest spring in Arkansas. It's discharge is around 100
cubic feet per second or more. Another feature of this area are the
caves. There are more than 1,000 caves in northern Arkansas. Some of
these caves have been said to reach about 1,000 feet below the land
surface. Recharge through these sinkholes can reach extreme volumes (Renken,
1998). In Missouri, karst can be noticed in the southern section of the
state. Missouri is more susceptible to contamination through karst
features because there are more mature karst features in the state
compared with Arkansas (Davis and Witt, 2005)
In high population areas in the Ozark
Plateau the water level is going down due to overuse, so it is advisable
to buy land in low and/or stable population areas where a lot of
population growth is not expected. It might be wise to call a well
drilling company in the area you are interested in to see where they
have found the best wells.

2. INFORMATION ON THE OZARK PLATEAU & US
Introduction: the Ozark Plateaus are part of what is called
The U.S. Interior Highlands:
"The U.S. Interior Highlands is a mountainous region spanning eastern
Oklahoma, western and northern Arkansas, southern Missouri, and the
extreme southeast corner of Kansas. The name is designated by the United
States Geological Survey to refer to the combined mountainous region of
the Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains, which form a distinct physiographic
division. It is the only major highland region between the Rocky
Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains in the United States.
The Ozarks (also referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, the Ozark
Mountains, and the Ozark Plateau) are a physiographic and geologic
highland region of the central United States. It covers much of the
southern half of Missouri and an extensive portion of northwestern and
north central Arkansas. The region also extends westward into
northeastern Oklahoma and extreme southeastern Kansas.
Although referred to as the Ozark Mountains, the region is actually a
high and deeply dissected plateau (IE, IT IS A SINGLE MOUNTAIN WHICH HAS
BEEN SPLIT IN TWO, ONE PART TO THE NORTH, AND ONE PART TO THE SOUTH.
THIS IS A MOST STRANGE AND PECULIAR THING; AS IT IS THE ONLY MOUNTAIN
(RANGE) ON THE ENTIRE PLANET WITH A VALLEY RUNNING EAST AND WEST. IT IS
LARGE ENOUGH TO BE VISIBLE FROM SPACE).
Geologically, the area is a broad dome around the Saint Francois
Mountains. The Ozark Highlands area, covering nearly 47,000 square miles
(122,000 km2), is by far the most extensive mountainous region between
the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains. Together, the Ozarks and
Ouachita Mountains form an area known as the U.S. Interior Highlands,
and are sometimes referred to collectively. For example, the ecoregion
called Ozark Mountain Forests includes the Ouachita Mountains, although
the Arkansas River valley and the Ouachitas, both south of the Boston
Mountains, are not usually considered part of the Ozarks.
The Ozark Highlands region comprises the southern half of Missouri,
northern third of Arkansas, and a small fraction of northeastern
Oklahoma, and southeaster Kansas, which geographers generally delimit by
the Missouri on the north, the Mississippi on the east, the Grand on the
Geographic characteristics that distinguish the Ozarks as a region
include the general ruggedness and vertical topography, and the relative
age of surface rocks being older than those in adjoining areas.
3. PEOPLE OF THE OZARKS HISTORICALLY
UNAFFECTED BY NATIONAL DISASTER
here tale begins in the summer of that year... whatever year it was...
The year don't matter....
The national situation don't even matter, because even though we were
smack dab in the middle of what we’ve been told was the Depression,
folks in the Ozarks was so poor to begin with that they scarcely
No, that's not right, because poverty’s so relative. A better way to
put it is that folks in the Ozarks still had everything they needed to
subsist and endure, and they didn't want for nothing. So they didn’t
even know that people elsewhere all over the country was suffering
Harington’s “Vance Randolph” character in Butterfly Weed1
After supper Uncle Greene . . . began speaking of the Ozarks. ‘Used to
be a real happy land for us outlaws,’ he recalled. ‘But for us
reformed sons of bitches no country ain’t no great sight better than
no other country . . . But I still say . . . that whichever the
country, hit’s the backhills that stay interestin’ and closest to
everlastin’ . . .’
Morrow Wilson in The Bodacious Ozarks2
The other factor, of utmost importance, is the population base of
similar mind set people with similar values. The people that settled
these ancient mountains were from races of people known throughout all
of mans history as having the mindset of liberty and the resources,
and the wherewithal, read courage, to confront and resist, the one
world order, Imperial Roman Mindset.
THAT point, is where the typical survivalist is DEAD
wrong. The great survivalist leader who lives in Wyoming, brags about
the fact that there are only FIVE PEOPLE PER SQUARE MILE (PPSM) AROUND
HIM!!! Similar is the big push to move to Montana. These men show maps
of satellite pics at night, and say: go where there are no lights. My
son said, hey dad, they could go to North Korea using that logic. So
you see the Problem here??? The problem is that these people see other
people, in essence, their neighbors as the enemy. They will pay in
blood, unfortunately, not all their own, for basing their entire
approach to survival, on nothing based on history, nothing based on geography, nothing based on military strategy or tactics, nothing based on
common sense, and possibly most telling, nothing based on counsel from any sacred writings.
OZARKS THE GREATEST PLACE ON THE PLANET FOR SURVIVAL AGRICULTURE
While the region has advanced technologically, the Ozarks remain a haven
for agrobiodiverse farmers and gardeners. (SURVIVAL AGRICULTURE)
Five years of applied agricultural anthropology research in different
locales of the Arkansas and Missouri Ozarks reveals three clearly
interconnected characteristics integral to traditional subsistence in
the region: agroecological knowledge, diversity, and frugality. These
values allowed Ozarkers of historical times to survive, and they permit
contemporary hill dwellers an alternative to the industrial food system.
WOULD YOU WANT TO LIVE IN THE INTERIOR HIGHLANDS?
For anyone who reads a modicum of history, both parts of this question
are rhetorical. Why highlands, and why the interior?
As to Highlands: "Montani Semper Liberi" is
the state motto of W Virginia:
Jesus said to flee to the mountains when you see these things begin to
come on the earth. Should we need a better reference than that? Do we
always need to understand everything, or do we need to just obey?

The Ozarks sit on aquifer systems, almost
exactly the same size and shape as the Plateau itself. The geology of
the region is such that 2.5 Billion Gallons of water surge from the
earth daily. Do you seriously think that is an accident? A coincidence
of fate? I think not. When the breadbasket of this nation turns into a
gigantic dust bowl / desert as the Ogallala Aquifer keeps going dry,

become a new measure of wealth. I see Providence at work from before the
foundations of the earth being laid.

GOING INTO A MINI ICE AGE"
For years scientists and government
officials have told us the earth is warming, and the mainstream media
has fallen in line, castigating and even laughing at anyone who suggests
But there's a growing body of thought
that the general wisdom is not only wrong, but embarrassingly so – and
that the earth is getting colder.
In fact, one prominent scientist says
Earth is on the front edge of a 30-year cold trend that could have a
major impact on our food supply and survival,
making summers cooler and winters almost unbearable.
His name is John L. Casey. His
new book, "Dark Winter: How The Sun Is Causing A 30-Year Cold Spell,”
flips everything you've heard about global warming on its head.
A former NASA consultant and White
House advisor, Casey tells us:
How 30 years of colder weather could
devastate America's crops.
Why weather patterns from 200 years
ago can help predict weather for the coming decades.
Whether he believes we're on the
verge of a small ice age.
How the 1645 freezing of the London
Thames River could give us hints of what is to come.
Why severe earthquakes and volcanoes
could follow the cold trend.
This is just one more good
reason to move to the Ozarks where the winters and summers are mild and
the growing season is long. I have sensed in my spirit that there
were more reasons than the ones discussed on this page why God moved me
here in 1985, and this could be one of them.
