THE PROPHECY OF THE OZARKS
BY KEN UPTEGROVE, FOUNDER OF ARKHAVEN.ORG
I felt inspired to write this prophetic overview of all the Lord has shown me since 1972 as a lead-in to this article on the Ozarks as a safe haven in these prophetic end-times. I think you will find it an important read.
“THE NAVY AND NASA HAVE ESTABLISHED THAT IN EVERY PHYSICAL SENSE THE OZARK PLATEAU IS THE SAFEST PLACE ON EARTH.”
“But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs”
Birth pangs have to do with upheavals of the planet itself as it goes through changes caused by celestial events.Â It would seem that this passage says volcanoes and earth quakes (this sort of thing) will happen on an unprecedented level.Â Because of the physical makeup of the Ozark Plateau, and because the Lordâ€™s covering over this area I am assuming that covering includes birth pangs as well.
Birth pangs have to do with upheavals of the planet itself as it goes through changes caused by celestial events.

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 in Arkansas or Missouri. Relatively speaking there will be less harm in a major part of the Ozarks.
To me the most important point we can make here is to know where God is sending you and then be obedient and move there. But confirm that first by making visits to that area to see if He confirms that in your spirit.
If you feel attracted to more that one area, visit them all and see which one God confirms for you.
As I say â€“probably too oftenâ€“ the safest place on earth is in the center of Godâ€™s will for you.
PROPHETIC HISTORY OF THE OZARK MOUNTAINS BEING A SAFE PLACE
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 â€œA Green Island of Survival.â€ 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 angels on the full circumference of 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, â€œMy, myâ€¦. this is a divinely protected place.â€Â I have never been able to confirm that experience.Â And here is another popular story that can not be confirmed.
There used to be a little newspaper put out, called â€œThe Corner Gatheringâ€ that was made up of the testimonies of others who knew God sent them here.Â One of those stories attributed to Bill Gothard [founder of the Quiverfull cult] purports thatÂ Corrie had a visionÂ when a passenger in his airplane, flying over the north west corner of Arkansas. According to the story she noticed a ring of fire down below and exclaimed that this must be a divinely protected area.
What is your Calling?
Is God Calling You to The Ozarks?
If you feel led to move to the Ozarks (or anyplace else), be sure you know the specific area God is calling you to, and the specific people you are to go into the community with. There are several kinds of communities, but whichever one you feel led to, be sure you are also led to the people.
May the Lord open your eyes to see His safe place for you. â€œThen Elisha prayed and said, â€œO LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see â€ And the LORD opened the servantâ€™s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.â€ ~2 Kings 6:17
One more point that rounds out this testimony. In 1974 the Lord told me that my lifeâ€™s commission was to prepare His people for a coming total crash of the economy and society. No one believed me in 74, 84, or 94. Just a few did in 2004, but now they do â€¦ in large numbers.
All of these testimonials were greatly abbreviated so as to make the poignant point. If you want to read the full version, see it here. 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 Noahâ€™s Ark and the Ark of the covenant) is Godâ€™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 or inoculate people from 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 the community with other Acts model Christians.
As the old Hebrew saying goes, â€œI would rather be one year too early than 10 minutes too lateâ€ in moving where God told me to go.
