I read with great interest about the 8 Corvettes swallowed in a sinkhole. (I love cars. Years ago a friend started a Corvette Museum and I got to drive them as the pics were put together.) I watched the video. And I felt the following begin to speak to me.
I thought about a few things.
- #8 Often seen as new beginnings.
- Corvette-besides being a powerful and agile vehicle the name was a word meaning basket, depicting a “sixth rate” ship.
- Sinkhole-Often what we build on is more important than what we build to. Job wrote about “leviathan” coming in from underneath.
I sense God is saying “I told you small and being ‘out there‘ was going to end. That I was building a body, re-membering it in fact. The largeness of provision is coming. I am sending in the big ships.”
Sixth rate was the designation used by the Royal Navy for small warships mounting between 20 and 24 carriage-mounted guns on a single deck, sometimes with smaller guns on the upper works and sometimes without. It thus encompassed ships with up to 30 guns in all. In the first half of the 18th century the main battery guns were 6-pounders, but by mid-century these were supplanted by 9-pounders.
Not sure about the Royal Navy but pretty sure about the “heir force”!
