It began with a dream—a dream that has now become a movement. And it all surrounds a now-familiar sight: a simple white flag adorned with only a pine tree and the words "Appeal to Heaven."
"My wife and I learned early on to process our dreams and encounters because it just helps us to steward what the Lord is revealing," revivalist Rick Curry tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. "In the dream, I felt like we really saw a strategy."
When Curry's wife, Jennifer, came into the room, he started telling her about the flag God had shown him in his dream. "I had sketched it out in my journal," he says.
But then Curry says something even more amazing: "I had never seen the flag before in my life. As a matter of fact, even when we've traveled and told the story, I often ask if there's any person who ever learned about the flag or studied the flag in school. And I have yet to have anyone who said that they did."
Jennifer was the one who first told him, "I just believe the flag might be real," Curry says.
"And I really kind of chuckled, because I thought, It cannot be real," Curry says. "And so we Googled it. And sure enough, we discovered that it was real. It was an authentic American flag; it was actually the first flag of our nation. And many of the Founding Fathers wanted that flag to be the flag of our nation.
"It was created in 1775, and I had never seen it before," he adds. "But it heightened the significance of the dream in my spirit at the time."
Since that time, the flag and its "appeal to heaven" message have gone around the world, thanks in large part to Curry and to the prayer-focused ministry of Dutch Sheets, Curry says. "I can't underestimate to you the sight of the flag, the revelation of the flag."
