Prophetic History Of Ozark Mountains being a
safe place

The Ozarks (also referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, 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.

Are hard times coming?

Are hard times already here?

How would God have Christians prepare for such a time as this?

How can we doubt that “...In the last days difficult times will come.” — 2 Timothy 3:1  




DISCLAIMER: At the present time we do not have a community. We are waiting upon the Lord's timing and call to meet that critical goal.  We do not want to mislead anyone into thinking we have an operational community they can move to right away.  We don't ... yet, but we now have a team that is making plans.  And we are asking the Lord to provide the means by which to acquire an ideal property we have had our eyes on for a year now. It is more than just idealistic, it is a veritable garden of Eden!

Prophetic History

Of Ozark Mountains being a safe place

I felt inspired to write this prophetic overview of all the Lord has shown me since 1974 as a lead-in to this article. I think you will find it an important read.

What struck me about Jerry Diamond's below articles the most is that he and I heard the exact same quote ... verbatim ... from God, that much of the Ozark mountains are "A Green Island of Survival."  I will show you Jerry's map (down a ways) that designates the part of the Ozarks we believe the Lord is telling hundreds of Christians to move to.




  • In 1983 the Lord told me (in a soy bean field in Illinois where I went to pray) to move here, and in 1984 when I drove into this area for the first time He told me I was entering into "A Green Island of Survival." I met the ghost writer for one of Corrie ten Booms books in Green Forest (Cliff Dudley, founder of New Leaf Publishing, now deceased), and he told me about her vision experience she had while touring the Passion Play grounds. When she saw angles on the horizon, all the way around. in ranks five deep (i.e., rows front to back. This would match how Israel went into battle), swords drawn, she exclaimed, "My, my.... this is a divinely protected place." 

  • And I have had many other confirmations.... 

  • There used to be a little newspaper put out, called "The Corner Gathering" that was made up of the testimonies of others who knew God sent them here. I know the author and have met a number of the people who she quoted.

  • That is why I am here, and that is why so many people come to let me show them this divinely protected island of survival.  As a caution or disclaimer it needs to be pointed out that there are many Bible passages that speak of divine covering.  But we have to understand them in context.  That does not mean no harm will come to any area within the Ozarks.  Relatively speaking there will be less harm in a major part of the Ozarks.  If you feel led to move to the Ozarks, be sure you know the specific area you are being called to, and the specific people you are to go into community with.  There are several kinds of communities, but whichever one you feel led to, be sure you are also led to the people.

  • 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 large numbers.

  • 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.


    Divinely protected safe areas in Ozark Mountains


    Divinely Protected "Safe" Areas Shown in:

    Portions of Maine, Vermont, and Quebec

    Portions of West Virginia, Kentucky, & Tennessee

    Portions of Missouri & Arkansas

    See Map showing Safe Areas in west side of USA


    Statistically, nearly 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 destination.

    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 at a 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 minister 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 protected area. 

    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 Uniformity

    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 safe places.

    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.




    The radius from the center to the black dots is 100 miles.

    This map was put together by Jerry Diamond who lives in  Missouri.


    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.

    Jerry Diamond Notes



    It is confirming that, point by point and quote by quote, things are coming to pass as 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 the 100 mile plus depth of the Craton under this area.

    You see, I had 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 so.

       That Sphere belongs to Almighty God, and will be protected -- yes, in the natural by His providential placing of aquifers, springs, caves, 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.

       In 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.

    Exciting times, brother, to be sure. I feel sorry for all the people running off to other countries, and missing out on the chance for a front row seat to the most majestic, powerful, and awesome display of God's power and wisdom soon to be displayed.

    As to where and when those quotes...they are just on forums/groups, some from hard core preppers, some might be from Alt-Market , or http://www.preparedsociety.com/forum/f56/ten-crucial-criteria-evaluating-relocation-regions-18152/, or http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Preparing-But-Not-Afraid/ , but most have come out of interactions and discussions on my forum.

    The Ozark Plateau




    The Ozarks and its primary physiographic regions.



    Elevation Map

    Elevation map of the Ozarks.



    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. 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 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.


    Ozark also refers to a region of people with a distinct culture, architecture,[44][46] and dialect shared by the people who live on the plateau. Early settlers in Missouri were American pioneers who came West from the Southern Appalachians at the beginning of the 19th century,[28][47] followed in the 1840s and 1850s by Irish and 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[47] tend to have lived in the area since the 19th century.[48]

    The Swiss Plateau http://www.traveling.ch/index2.php?title=about

    Neither the soil nor the climate favors agriculture, and Switzerland must import much of the food it consumes and subsidize the farms that do exist. Nearly all the farms are family enterprises, and most are small in size.

    The leading agricultural products in the early 1990s (ranked by estimated value and with production in metric tons) were potatoes (737,000), apples (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 produced.

    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 having scouted the whole area over the past three years and developed all the contacts needed for finding land, I am looking for people ready to join with me in splitting a larger piece of attractive property meeting our requirements into individually owned parcels to fit individual needs. Participants should be constitutionalists or libertarians knowledgeable about our current economic and political problems and desirous of being prepared for whatever events that might come in the foreseeable future. This is not a cult or commune, just a group of people wanting to live free in our Republic now. Contact me by email. Provide contact information, a little background on what you are thinking about, and your timetable. Once the first group is re-located, we will assist others in doing the same. All information will be kept confidential unless authorized by you for sharing.

    Crucial Criteria For Evaluating Relocation Regions


     Look 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 history.

    Along with other varied sources below, please at least note this one:


    I quoted a good statement by Brandon Smith of http://www.alt-market.com/, and then commented on it:


    "I doubt we have much more than a year before fuel prices are so high nobody will want to move anywhere, revolutionist. So far I'm getting the sense that most people consider this kind of action drastic, which is what I suspected the response would be when I started this thread. 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 serious danger..."

    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 problem.

    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 their families.
    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:



    Counting ONLY the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd magnitude springs, there is 2.5 BILLION GALLONS OF WATER PER DAY COMING OUT OF THE GROUND -CREATING RIVERS, STREAMS, ETC.

    Like fishing? Just live near one of the many trout hatcheries....

    3. Consider all of these diverse factors that also line up with history, i.e., the same escape route applies to every nation in every century when  invaded: as to where refugees go in time of invasion; i.e., the interior of the land mass, and high ground which is defensible

    We are living in  a time when the cultural, historical, religious, racial, economic, and geographical study of regions / nations like Switzerland & Afghanistan become critical.

    What do I mean? Afghanistan  is what is historically called >THE GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES.

    Why? If you are stupid enough, and proud enough, and over extended enough  to attack Afghanistan, it means your empire is about to die. Russia failed. The Berlin Wall came down. The USSR broke up. We will fail. Period. You cannot defeat and rule a nation of warriors when they own the high ground. Period. Why did Hitler not invade Switzerland? He did confront them; He asked them: >What if I invade with one million troops?< Their answer?  >WE WILL SHOOT TWICE...AND GO HOME.<

    Anybody know the
    Swiss Militia Credo???  No? It is:
    Ein Schweizer, Sieben Deutsche. –(One Swiss, Seven Germans)


    How did Russia fare when they invaded Finland In 1939 in what is known as The Winter War???
    Russia had superiority in tanks, airplanes, and troops up to 200 to one. 450,000 Soviet troops crossed the border. They were met by the small Finnish army which initially numbered only 180,000. The Finns were badly outnumbered in all areas during the conflict with the Soviets also possessing superiority in armor (6,541 to 30) and aircraft (3,800 to 130). http://militaryhistory.about.com/od/navalbattles1900today/p/winterwar.htm
    The Finns had Skis and rifles, and knowledge of the terrain. Who won? Stalin said that 1.5 million troops went to Finland, one million stayed there...forever. The kill ratio was 40 to 1. Four man teams on skies destroyed 2000 Russian tanks.

    Why has Russia never messed with them again, even with a 1000 mile long common border?
    Finland has 700,000 pairs of skis. You think ski & shoot at the Olympics is a game? Ask Stalin: Stalin called Finnish ski  troops in winter camo, WHITE DEATH...


    4. 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 people...

    5. 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: http://www.howtogetoutofbabylon.com/ebook/ebook.htm


    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...

    indeed, it 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, laconic, distrustful.
    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. "

    • Refugium (Latin), 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.)

    Hope this helps...maybe it will help even one or two >Christian Survivalists< who might be lurking




    Question: 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 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 it?


    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 nature.

    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 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:



       A.   This 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 America.

    Hmmm...perhaps something like a really large Plateau which used to be an island?

    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 AREA...



    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.

    Quoting 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 their foreheads.”

    Man’s 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 Weapons.”

    The report 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.

    The perplexing question is, “What is holding back these seething mountains of water from rushing to fill the low spots?”

    The basic understanding of gravity demands that these elevated waters respond to its downward pull.

    The 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.”

    According 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 great heights.

    Four major 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.

    The obvious question of paramount importance is, “What will happen when the 4 angels of God stop these winds from blowing?”

    Reading in 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.

    When the 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.

    Landmasses 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.

    Most certainly the earth will be harmed in that day, but then what of the sea?

    As 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.

    After the 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.

    To our 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 affected continents.

    As may 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.

    The Ocean’s high spots are located off of Ireland, Peru, Madagascar and the Philippines.

    The first two low points are found off of India and Antarctica.

    The last two are found off of the East and West coasts of North America by California and Florida.

    Consider 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.

    In Rev. 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: 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:

    The Saint Francois Mountain Range rises above the Ozark Plateau and is the geological core of the highland dome.

    The core of the range existed as an island in the Paleozoic seas.

    Reef complexes occur in the sedimentary layers surrounding this ancient island.

    A major unconformity in the region attests that the Ozark Plateau was above sea level for 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 carbonate sedimentation.

    Coral reefs formed around the granite and rhyolite islands in this Cambrian sea.

    Northern 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.


    The Green Island of Survival...
    May Possibly, at least for a time, once again, be a Literal Island

    Note that back when I was first being shown from many sources that this circular actually, SPHERICAL (it includes Negative Electrical protection via grounding, deep into aquifers, springs, wind patterns, electrical Aetheric (Tesla) energy,) AREA of about 100 mile radius around Springfield would be the safest area to live, that was all I knew...it was before I had the foggiest clue of anything at all about the Ozarks, plateau, Springs, Aquifers, Lakes, Rivers, Terrain, People...etc and yet article after article, and source after source, delineates that exact same size and shape of area...


    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, 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.



    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.[1] It is the only major highland region between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains in the United States.[2][3]

       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. 


       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 rivers: the Missouri on the north, the Mississippi on the east, the Grand on the southwest.  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.



    This 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 noticed.

    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 from want."

    —Donald 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’ . . .’ 

    —Charles 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.



    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.



    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?


    Highlands; Mountainous Terrain gives you great advantages.



        How many times have you read, and even quoted the true saying: CONTROL THE FOOD, CONTROL THE PEOPLE.

    Well, figure that into your plans, please!!! A dairy farmer was trying to reason with his neighbor who was raising a stink about the smell.

    "Why can't you just buy your milk at the store like everyone else?" the woman said. It utterly amazes me how many preppers and survivalists really do not take food, or water into consideration at all. Hey, food does not come from the grocery store, folks. And water does not come from a faucet.

    When the trucks stop rolling, and power goes off, you will have neither. Live where you can provide both for your


       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, water, and the ability to provide food for consumption and trade will become a new measure of wealth. I see Providence at work from before the foundations of the earth being laid.


    Divinely protected safe areas in Ozark Mountains



    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 otherwise.

    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.
