I preached this message on Saturday 27th May at the Aglow meeting in Manchester, 5 days after the bombing at the MEN Arena. I may have to post in instalments due to time constraints.
One month previously, on 22nd April 2017,I attended a prayer meeting. Whilst we were worshipping God, I saw a very clear picture in my mind of powerful eagles circling together over a valley and I heard the words, “Vantage point”
When I prayed and enquired about this God really spoke to me.
A vantage point, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, is a place, especially a high place, that provides a good, clear view of an area.
An example of this in a sentence is: “From our lofty vantage point, we could see the city spread out below us.”
During the worship I looked out of the window and I saw two policemen and a bus went past with the sign, “Vantage” on it.
As Christians, God has given us a vantage point over this nation – that we can see clearly what is taking place, and indeed can see things before they happen and can intercede.
