If you believe that the pretribulation Rapture will take you out of here before the great trial takes place on earth (Rev 3:10), because you know you are in the body of Christ, then you already should know that you will not need to escape the Beast world order in the Ozarks.
However, if you are one of those that believe that the Rapture is a fairy tale and Christians will go through the tribulation like everyone else, you might want to try to escape some of what the Beast world order has to offer you in the Ozarks.
This also applies to non believers because the great trial on earth is designed to get people to change their mind and believe in the God of the Bible. During the Tribulation you will either come to believe in the God of the Bible and in His Messiah or you will believe the Satanic lies of the Beast and his False Prophet. There is no third choice!
This trial on earth will happen just before Jesus returns to set up His kingdom on earth. If you oppose God, by following after the Son of Perdition that the book of Revelation calls the Beast you fail the test. In that case, you will never live to see the Lord’s Kingdom, you will be cut off no matter where you choose to locate on earth. Only those wanting to escape the Beast world order during the tribulation should even think about escaping to the Ozarks.
The tribulation period starts when the Prince/Beast/Antichrist figure that many that identify as “Christians” are looking for (or not) confirms an existing (peace) covenant with Israel and other nations for seven years (Da 9:27). This period is known as the seventh week of Daniel.
If not before, you will know that you are in a world of trouble when this world leader breaks the seven-year treaty after 3.5 years and causes the sacrifice to cease at the rebuilt Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. This starts the time known as the Great Tribulation that is also known as the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer 30:7).
The two prophets of God had tormented the unbelieving world with their message and those nations that tried to shut them up or kill them brought instant judgment upon their own head. The people on earth will be rejoicing because the two prophets of God that were preaching the soon coming Jewish Kingdom on earth and that were telling the nations to let all their Jews to return to Israel were finally killed.
Many on earth will be saying peace and safety after the two prophets are killed. In Fact, the world will be throwing a great party (Rev 11:10), but sudden destruction will come and they will not escape the great Day of the Lord (1Th 5:3).
After 1260 days of the two witnesses testimony to the world from Jerusalem, God will allow the Beast to kill them. The world will get to believe a lie when the Beast/Antichrist kills these two prophets of God and he claims to be greater than anything called God (2Th 2:4).
That is the time Jesus talked about when he told those living in Judea to flee to the mountains of Jordan for protection (Mr 13:14) from the judgments that are coming. And if you have not done so before this happens, those in America might consider fleeing to the Ozarks from the Beast world order for their own physical protection.
Keep in mind, that this great tribulation period on earth will be the worst time that there ever was on earth and that ever will be again (Mt 24:21). In other words, few will live through it. It will be hell on earth. There will be great wars, famines, pandemics, persecution and divine judgments carried out by angels. All the cities of the world will fall, so probably those that survive through the years of the great tribulation will mostly be those living in isolated rural areas of the world.
I hope that you will trust in Jesus and go in the Rapture and escape the things to come that will try men’s souls. However, if you insist on being a doubting Thomas and staying here during this time you should have a plan B.
So why do I say to those left behind in America to escape to the Ozarks? Only because I live here and know how it is. There are few other places in America that are so well qualified to keep the Beast world order out.
Central government never had much control in the Ozarks. They still made moonshine here long after prohibition. Today Meth and Marijuana are big business in the Ozarks and government can do little to stop it. Remember Snuffly Smith? That cartoon strip and story is about a guy that grew up in the Ozarks.
Not only is there not much law enforcement in these rural parts of the Ozarks people generally do not trust state and federal police agencies. Local law enforcement have friends and extended families that live here, most are not going to be supporting world government agendas of oppression.
The Ozarks have a well-developed gray market economy. Many around here have a wage paying job but they also do side ventures under the table. The incomes here are so low that it would be a waste of effort for the government to try to collect taxes on these unreported incomes. One of the biggest industries in the Ozarks is reselling used goods. That makes a barter system possible when people are told to take the Mark or they will not be allowed to buy or sell on the Beast system.
The Eastern Ozarks have a 95 percent canopy of mixed Oak and Pine. I think it would be very difficult for eyes in the sky to keep tract of movements of people on the ground. Most people in the Ozarks are well armed and they know how to use those arms.
The steep terrain in the Ozarks with its narrow winding roads does not allow for heavy military equipment except for on a few primary roads. Tanks would be almost useless in the Ozarks. The saying “I will see you if the creeks don’t rise” is reality here. After a heavy rain many roads are not passable and the Ozarks get a lot of heavy rain.
Ground troops would literally have a hell of a time trying to occupy the Ozarks. I call the Ozarks in its long growing season the green hell. If you were in Vietnam, you might get the picture. Some that grew up here seem to be immune to the nasty creatures of the green hell but most outsiders are not. I think that is because some people here are just too ornery for anything to bite.
If outsiders dare to march through the green hell of the Ozarks from March until December without hazmat suits on, they could end up in the emergency room with third degree bites. And if they use hazmat suits they will die of heat exhaustion.
If the ticks do not get them the chiggers will, and if the chiggers do not get them the gnats will, and if the gnats do not get them the mosquitoes, flies, and hornets will, and if none of the above don’t get them they will reap the side effects of using chemicals to keep them off. They would also have to deal with snakes and spiders. You cannot hike in the Ozarks most of the year without blazing a path through spider webs and you cannot see snakes in the heavy underbrush.
Copperheads are all over the place and big rattlesnakes are not uncommon. Even some common black snakes around here could almost swallow a midget whole. I once seen a black snake span from one side of the road to the other and it moved down that road like a coil traveling faster than any man could run.
There would be plenty of guerilla/gorilla resistance in the Ozarks against the forces of the new world order Antichrist. There are those that would be identified as guerillas because of their resistance to an occupying army and there are those identified as gorillas because they were raised to be animals. Even now, there is no shortage of both species around here.
People in the Ozarks are not very “progressive”. They don’t care much about being politically correct.
If outsiders want to know about transgender bathrooms in the Ozarks, they will be pointed to the outhouse. I know of a fairly well attended church located not too far from here that has a transgender outhouse.
If outsiders want information about the progresses of cultural diversity in the Ozarks, they will be given directions to the nearest Mexican or Chinese Restaurant. They are expanding faster than Dollar Stores in the Ozarks.
Common Core here is the core that is left after the apple is eaten. The common core needs to be tossed.
A gay marriage is a marriage and reception that has a keg hidden behind the outhouse.
A prayer rug is the carpet at the front altar of the Pentecostal churches.
Agenda 21 is a bus trip to the nearest local Casino.
Climate Change always happens in the Ozarks. You can’t avoid it or fix it.
Building and zoning laws are not enforced here. A lot of not so handy men just build and fix things the Ozarks way. That way is the cheapest possible method.
If outsiders want to dishonor Jesus in the Ozarks, some in the Ozarks might think that they should help them meet their maker.
Allah is not God in the Ozarks even in the many Masonic Mosques.
The Ozarks will not be the only place on earth where the forces of the Beast world order might have a hard time gaining total control. Perhaps you know of another place and you want to talk about it? We Rapture believers should have answers for the post-toasties and the unbelievers out there that are left behind to deal with the Beast world order.
