This morning I received a message from my friend Jake, who had just read the fiery buzzard post from yesterday. This is what he said:
“Bob, as to your dream I had a picture of a small boat which looked like a paddle board with a sail. The sail itself just looked like a feather. It was approaching America, paddled by what looked like a mouse. It was clearly a rescue boat. I looked and thought how can that rescue anyone.?
What heard the Lord say was: ‘Don’t despise the small things. As my people in the UK rise and pray, they will be that rescue boat among the many rescue boats sent out from around the world, praying and decreeing over USA.’”
When I read Jake’s message I thought immediately of Dunkirk, when a flotilla of over 800 motley small boats sailing back and forth across the English Channel rescued the allied forces from the clutches of Hitler. His armies had swarmed right across Europe and driven them right back to the coast. The rescue was only possible because of “unusually calm” weather: “The waters of the Channel are notoriously treacherous, which could have posed problems for the smaller boats, but thanks to a spell of settled weather the sea remained unusually calm with little more than a light breeze.” (From the BBC website) In addition to the unusual calm, smoke blown over the beaches by light Easterly winds screened the soldiers as they waited to be evacuated, and the beaches were obscured on the 28th and 30th May by cloud cover which preventing the Luftwaffe from bombing the Allied forces and their rescuers as they sailed across the Channel. The same clouds helped the RAF to engage the Luftwaffe in the skies.
The weather conditions that allowed the operation – codenamed “Operation Dynamo” were as supernatural as the parting of the Red Sea: with God’s help, around 338,000 soldiers were rescued.
Just like Hitler in May 1940, the enemy is of the opinion that he has God’s people in the USA on the run; pinned down against the sea where he thinks he will come and finish them off through the puppet presidency of Joe Biden. I believe that it is no coincidence that a major new film of Dunkirk was released only four years ago, and that Operation Dynamo itself was a prophetic event heralding what God would do by His Spirit in these times.
So do not despise the day of small things. You, your ministry, your prayer group, may only be a paddleboard with a feather sail propelled by a mouse, as is this website. But let us hear and spread God’s call to pray for the USA; let’s mount our paddleboards, set our feather sails to the wind and start the dynamo turning. Let’s get that flotilla launched and see God’s power at work.
