A word from Lance Lambert (August 2011)

Lance Lambert, the international Bible teacher and speaker who lived in Jerusalem, spoke the following word just prior to the rioting and violence in the UK. We now see the impact on the climate.

Lance Lambert

HEAR the voice of the Lord, O Isles that I have so greatly loved and favoured. I the Lord the Almighty, I took you when you were nothing, clothed with skins and woad, and through My saving power, I made you great. When you were nothing, through My Word and your faith in Me, I lifted you and made you Great Britain.

Through many awakenings and many revivals, stage by stage, I took you until you became a great power with the greatest Empire in the history of the nations.

From you My Gospel and My Word went throughout the world, and tens of thousands came into an experience of saving faith! That Empire with all its many failings and weaknesses was still one of the most just and righteous Empires of history.

Those Isles of yours were soaked with the blood of My faithful martyrs and its soil received the burnt ashes of those who would not renounce My Name, My Truth, and My Word. I, the Lord have not forgotten those who gave their all for Me!

But now the whole nation that I created and sustained has turned from Me. They paganise their land, state and institutions; there is no voice heard to warn the nation. False religion, the work of world rulers of darkness, cover your Isles; A Laodicean church, neither hot nor cold, rumbles on like machinery. It is a church where I am outside of its routine; its organisation and its methodology. It is Christianity without Me: Religion without Me!

My being is seared with pain, for judgement is determined against your land. I can do no other. I will destroy the vestiges of her greatness; I will return her to her first estate. I will wreck her economy, destabilise her in every way. I will change her climate, even her weather. I will prove to her that the way of the transgressor is hard and terrible. I will allow demonic forces held in check erstwhile by My Word and Gospel, and the living faith of so many, to become rampant in her social life, to the destruction of her society.

Will you who know Me and love Me go blind and dumb and deaf into this judgement?
It is time for you who love Me, who are faithful to Me, to take action! Stand before Me and plead The Finished Work of My Son. At least cry out to Me, that there will be those who turn from darkness, from sin, and be saved. For whosoever shall call upon My Name in the midst of these judgements, I will save!

It will cost you everything to stand in the gap, but you will enter into My heart, and know deep fellowship with Me. Such travail conceived in your heart by My Spirit will cost your deeply, but it will end in My Throne and Glory.

Lance LambertLance Lambert, one of the most distinguished Bible Scholars and intercessory leaders in Israel and abroad, died peacefully on May 10, 2015 in Jerusalem, Israel at the age of 84 following a severe illness over the past year. We deeply mourn the loss of our dear Brother and Faithful Servant of our Lord Jesus. We also rejoice knowing that he has entered into the Joy and Presence of the Lord.

Lance's contribution to the Body of Christ cannot be measured. His deep life of intercessory prayer and ministry to the Saints in the midst of battle is reflected in the messages he gave us. He will be fondly remembered for that twinkle in his eye and his British humour when he spoke. He has encouraged so many to press on and pursue to a deeper life in our Lord Jesus. In the Words of our Lord Jesus:

Matthew 25:21: "His Master said to him, "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the Joy of your Master."

Lance enjoyed a worldwide itinerant ministry. Born in 1931, Lance grew up in England and met the Lord at age 12. He entered the school of African and Oriental studies at London University to prepare for the Lord's work in China. He studied Classical Chinese, Mandarin, Oriental Philosophy and Far Eastern History, but the revolution closed the door to his entry into China.

In the early 1950's, Lance served in the Royal Air Force in Egypt, where he learned many principles in intercessory prayer. He later founded Halford House Christian Fellowship in Richmond, England.

Having discovered his Jewish ancestry, Lance became an Israeli citizen in 1980.

Lance was noted for his eschatological views, which placed him in the tradition of Watchman Nee and T. Austin-Sparks. He wrote numerous books on prayer and Israel, including The Uniqueness of Israel.

I think it is pretty accurate - however I believe the UK will be the centre of world wide revival once again. Once the amputees start growing limbs again, miraculously healed, once the denominations become defunct - I think a national - spirit filled, fruit filled and signs and wonders Church is possible here in the UK. There is a film called Equilibrium all should just takes one prophet to get inside the machine to switch it off and bang! the uk is off again. The original Tron is a good example also.

Jason said, "I think it is pretty accurate - however I believe the UK will be the centre of world wide revival once again."

The first part of what you say in what I have quoted above is certainly in line with the prophecy, the second part of what you say I am not so sure. It doesn't seem to tie in with the prophecy. Can you support it?

A word from Guest (Guest) 18/01/2015 14:44
Another of these self styled 'prophets' with a "word"?

If you read what he says, there is absolutely nothing that cannot have been gleaned from the world's media and just a little understanding of Scripture.
But what gets (upsets) to me is that people like LL and his ilk would have us believe that he has a personal hotline to God. Some will then hang on their every word. Think about it? If one REALLY believes a man or woman receives a direct 'word' from the Almighty, they will certainly be deceived?

I appreciate that the editor has a disclaimer warning people to "hold every word..." on the above article, and many others. But does a sign saying "SMOKING WILL DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH" stop the determined smoker from puffing away?
No-he doesn't see it!
My advice is not to publish the trash in the first place.

Editor 18/01/2015 20:32
Guest I have absolutely no inclination to accept 'advice' from someone who has neither the integrity nor courtesy to identify themselves with what they are saying.

And if you believe (as your comment seems to suggest) that the Lord (via the Holy Spirit) cannot speak directly to Christ's disciples then could I suggest that you check out your thoughts with Scripture.
John Miller 19/01/2015 16:11
In this "prophecy" Mr Lambert assumes to speak directly as though he is the Sovereign God. What really disturbs me about this assumption is that he claims to even know the very feelings of this omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God and be authorised to detail them in such a familiar way. I find it bordering on irreverence.

"My being is seared with pain" That statement, putting such words in the mouth of the Eternal in my judgement is going far beyond the remit of one who aspires to being a prophet.

Any present day prophecy must be solidly based on the word of God. It must be demonstrated to be so. This articulation of Mr Lambert's beliefs about the UK's present situation put into the context of a directly commissioned divine prophecy puts it on the same level as scripture. Think about it!

I cannot accept that.
Editor 19/01/2015 19:00
My personal view is that I would prefer when/if believers share what they are feeling that the Spirit is saying that they do so without speaking in the first person (i.e. as if it were directly the voice of the Lord).

We need to be clear that the word 'prophecy' is frequently used in two different contexts viz.

1. Foretelling
2. Forth-telling

In terms of new covenant times and 'foretelling', all anyone can say is "I believe that this is what the Lord is saying to me/and or the church(es)/nations".

I trust, John, you are not suggesting that the Holy Spirit has stopped communicating with the body of Christ except through the printed word.
If this were the case in terms of guidance, for instance, nobody would ever get out of bed in the morning.

Regarding Lance Lambert, he would refute any suggestion that anything he says is on a par with Scripture; and I think it would be very naive and presumptions of anyone who is not familiar with LL and his ministry to assume that of him.

And of course we all need to seek to know the heart of the "omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God" in order to pray in line with His sovereign will, purposes and actions in our present day.
Without that understanding we could end up praying against what the Lord is doing. (A futile and even dangerous place to be.)

Every letter to the Revelation churches includes the vital injunction: "He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches." And this applies to the churches of any and every age prior to the Second Coming.

A recurring theme in the letter to the Hebrews is "Today if you hear His voice do not harder your hearts...."

There are two very important points in these texts -
(a) We need to 'listen' for the Master's voice and
(b) We need to be willing to receive what we hear.

So we need to 'wait on the Lord' and have 'soft and teachable hearts'.

Although this 'Word from Lance Lambert' was written in August 2011, there is nothing here that we don't already know from general knowledge, or we could not readily predict from a knowledge of Scripture e.g sweep of history - revival times, times of the Empire; modern times - rise of secularism, immorality, apostasy/lukewarmness in the church. The Scriptures reach us that the wrath of God will be upon those that forsake Him. Climate change and economic woes have been debated for several years. We thank God for the many little groups of sincere born again Christians who are praying ('standing in the gap') for a mighty revival in our land.
My point is that this 'Word from LL' to my mind does not contain anything that any well informed Christian, having both general and Biblical knowledge, would not already know.
Editor 19/01/2015 22:44
"My point is that this 'Word from LL' to my mind does not contain anything that any well informed Christian, having both general and Biblical knowledge, would not already know."

Then we need to query the fact that many "well informed" Christians are predicting revival blessing rather than judgement - which is partly why the article was posted in the first place.

Dale Munday 20/01/2015 09:59
There is a difference between predicting revival and praying for it. God wants us to pray for divine intervention in this world (like the prophet Isaiah - 'Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down....' Is. 64:1) but it is only God in His sovereignty that sends a revival. While it is true that God's punishment will fall on the wicked, we as Christians are encouraged to 'stand in the gap' and pray to God that the spiritual tide may be turned. Is that not a biblical approach?
Editor 21/01/2015 22:31
We need to pray "Thy will be done on earth..." If Jeremiah had prayed for revival he would have been praying against the will of God at that time.

That is why true intercessors spend as much time listening (to what the Spirit is saying to them) as they do speaking.
