“Three years of great humbling will come upon this nation...”
Last updated on June 21st, 2020 at 06:29 pm
In the days before the prophet Samuel, we are told “the Word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation” (1 Samuel 3:1).
That is not the case today! We offer these recent prophecies from British leaders to encourage prayer and to provide a catalyst to study what the Bible teaches. All prophetic messages should be carefully checked in the light of Scripture
“A global scourge of sickness”
This message was given by Bible teacher David Noakes on 30 March and published in Prophecy Today UK. Having carefully ‘weighed’ it (considered it prayerfully), groups have been using it for prayer guidance.
“Beloved, I speak, but who is willing to listen; I call, but who is willing to hear? My people are hardened like barren soil in drought, baked hard by the continual beating down of the heat of deception, so my words do not take root and righteousness does not result.
“Yet I have a remnant who grieve over the state of the world in which you find yourselves, and it is to you that I now speak, you whose hearts are humble and open towards me, and who tremble at my word.
“To those who have ears to hear, I am shouting a warning, for the great and terrible day of the Lord is not far off and the time to repent is short.
“I have sent fire and floods, earthquakes and famines in many places, but who has wanted to know the reason? Men, even the leaders of my people, are deceived and believe the lie that these so-called natural disasters are caused by the actions of men and can be resolved by the skilled remedies of men.
“Therefore I have released a curse, a global scourge of sickness for which men have no remedy; and no nation will escape unscathed. For the whole world is turning in rebellion against me, and in my grief and out of my great love for all mankind whom I have created and desire to save, I have released the scourge of sickness in the hope that in their despair, men will turn to me for deliverance and salvation.
“The nations of the world, the whole earth, are now as it was in the days of Noah, when violence and corruption brought my anger in the form of a worldwide flood; and as in the days of Lot, when greed and corruption and perverted sexuality brought my destruction in the form of fire and burning sulphur. Even so, this is now the condition of the nations, and I have been watching in horror.
“Where is the fear of God among the nations? Where is the fear of God among the leaders of my people who are called by my Name? Everywhere I am rejected and mocked and blasphemed, I who created the heavens and the earth and who sustains them by my word of power.
“Beloved, you whose hearts and ears are turned to me when I call, hear my cry; for it is a cry not only of anger, but also of deep sorrow and love for all men whom I have created in order that they may worship me, the one true God, and live in fellowship with me through my Son who gave his life so that all who call upon me might be saved and live under my hand of blessing and protection.
“My grief is very great, for I look upon the nations of the world, who have embraced deception rather than the truth of their own eyes, and rejected me as Creator. I am angry, but I am also deeply wounded and in great distress at the destruction which they are bringing upon themselves through their pride and rebellion, for they do not know, and are not willing to hear, that it is the god of this present world-system who is deceiving them and luring them into a trap of destruction.
“Men have rejected the everlasting covenant which I made with Noah. Everywhere I see violence and corruption and greed, and the shedding of innocent blood – millions of unborn children who are the work of my hands in this creation and for whose lives I had a purpose on this earth.
“Now even the very sign of the covenant which I made with Noah, the rainbow of permanent testimony to my love and faithfulness to keep my word, is made a cause of offence to me, a stench in my nostrils, by being taken as the proud symbol of rebellion, of perversion of my created order of male and female.
“Beloved, do not be deceived. God has been watching while the cup of iniquity of the nations of the earth is coming near to fullness. In my love and concern I am shouting a global warning through this present scourge of sickness, in the hope that even at this late hour many will repent and turn to me, before the final judgments of irretrievable disaster, the outpouring of my pent-up anger, begin to be released, for then it will be too late and I will not turn back from doing all that is prophesied in my word.
“Before that day arrives, I desire to purify and equip you, my remnant people, by my Spirit, to declare my love, the gospel of my Son’s sacrifice sealed in his own blood, to those who are destined for the awfulness of my wrath. Who will hear and respond to my call to declare the truth, for this is a day of decision?”
The humbling of Great Britain
Readers may recall the astonishing account of HEART Partner Pastor Chris Wickland’s death and return to life in our Feb/Mar issue. Click here to read
The day before, on 28 November 2019, Pastor Chris, of Living Word Church Network, had received this prophecy. After recovering from the near-fatal cardiac arrest, he finally published it on 10 April, writing on Facebook: “I knew when I received this word the enemy was angry. The plan of the enemy is to shut every church down. No more prayer, no warfare of praise, no glory to God.”
He added: “After chastisement, God will make the Church grow exponentially. The very weapon Satan used to destroy the Church will be the very thing that causes the Church to explode in growth.”
“I will have the people in this land in derision”, says the Lord. “I will pour out my Spirit on this land, and those people that have called to come together to conspire, to tear down My ways and My precepts and My ordinances from this land – this green and pleasant land. Mark My words: I will have them in derision. I am in the heavens and I laugh at their futility, at the things that they’re attempting to do, to close Me off and shut Me off from My own creation and so close down and shut down My people. For that is their ultimate aim. They want Me and every trace of Me eradicated from the land and from education and from every part of this society.
“But mark My words; I have plans to prosper this country, and I will bring to shame the wise. I will shame those who have so loftily held their head up – their stiff-necked heads that have said, ‘We will bring our ways! We will bring in our precepts and ordinances in this land, and we will eradicate God, and we will take Him off his throne. And we shall destroy His church.‘ But not so!
“Sadly, My own Church has failed to see how impoverished and how weakened she has become. She is literally now a remnant in this country. Yet I will do great things with a remnant. Yet when it was I can take three hundred foot-soldiers with Gideon and I can do a great deliverance, and I will do the same also in this land. I will take this small remnant of a Church that is left – those Christians that genuinely acknowledge Me as their Lord and Saviour – and will not bow the knee to Baal and to all his false practices and customs in respect to the laws that are now passing in this land.
“Mark My words, punishment will come for the sins that have covered this land. But the punishment, as I always punished Israel in times past, was so that it may bring them to repentance and may bring healing to their land; that when the people are humbled they would pray to me and I would turn in My mercy, I would forgive them their sins and I would then heal their land. I am going to bring punishment to this nation – a time of humbling – but this punishment is not to destroy this nation. This punishment is to humble her and to chastise her, that she may repent of her wicked ways and turn back to Me.
“There will not be many nations in the days ahead that will be permitted to have what this nation will be permitted. You will have a grace and a favour upon you which many other nations will not be given because I have plans and purposes for this country. And even though My own people have been faithless harlots towards Me, know this; that your faithlessness will only go to prove My faithfulness. I will be faithful to My Covenant and to My Word, and I will bring about My ways and My means for this country, and I will pour out My Spirit. And I will bring Revival, but it will not be like any revival that has been before. It will be uncontainable; it will be uncontrollable; and the world will HATE it because it will be so strong and it will be so powerful that they cannot ignore it.
“In times past they’ve been able to turn a blind eye to the things of My Spirit, but in these days everyone will know about it, everybody will know about it. And the same sun that melts the ice also hardens the clay, and men will just drop into two distinct camps: those that love Me and those that absolutely hate Me. This is why in many respects these days are dangerous days, because it will polarize people, in ways stronger than they are now; but you will know the righteous and you will know the evil.
“But mark My words, I will do something wonderful with this country; I will restore law and order to this country. This country has become lawless and it has no more order to it. And your Houses of Parliament are an example of the state of your nation, of the division of your nation, of the complexities of your nation. The wickedness and the hardness of heart and the blindness and arrogance of your nation are all set to display, for all the world to see in your own Houses of Parliament. But I am going to do a new thing. And many men will lay down their crowns and place down their swords before Me and repent and give their lives to me. And many powerful men and women who vehemently hate My name, will come to know Me and love My name.
“And some Christians might go, ‘Why, why Lord did you save them? They’re the ones who brought such depravity to our nation. Why did you allow it?’ Because that’s My grace, that’s My mercy, and the very ones that brought in those laws, I will turn into trophies of grace to make the enemy despised in his own camp, for I will make those who passed those wicked laws be the ones that undo them, for they will reveal the secrets and the dark intent and heart of sinful wicked flesh. And the world or this country at least, will look on in horror at the things that they’ve released and allowed in this country, and they will be rescinded and retracted.
“My people, you need to do this: you need to be spending these hours – because it is only hours – you need to be spending these hours in prayer; you need to be spending these hours on your knees; you need to be spending this time in the Word, learning from Me, learning from My Spirit and I will teach you many wonderful things. But this is the time, because there are many bridesmaids out there that do not have enough oil in their lamp and you need to get it in your lamp. No-one can part-exchange their life of intimacy with Me to those that have no intimacy with Me. This is your chance; now is the time to do it, for in the humbling that’s coming – this wind of change that’s going to blow through this land – it’s going to be a difficult time for this nation. It will not be a long time, but the depth of the punishment that will come will be severe, even though it will only be for a short time. It was like when I said to King David, “You can have three years of this, three months of that, or three days of the other”.
“This will be a short punishment but it will be a deep punishment; a deep chastisement to this nation. And I will humble this nation and I will turn her around. And many who are your enemies in these days will become your friends and neighbours in the days to come.
“So be prepared, be encouraged but be warned; this is not going to be an easy day that is coming, it is going to be a difficult day, a difficult time for this nation. Many Christians will cry out, ‘Why did I allow such things to come to this nation?’ But in part, everyone in this nation is responsible for the punishments that are coming.
“There is much worldliness in My Body, much worldliness in My Church, much worldliness in the mindset of Christians, much worldliness in the teachings of the Church! And the teachings of the Church have lost their anchor. They have apostasised; they have become an apostate church, in that they’ve drifted away from the truth of scripture and have chosen to allow the doctrines of men to infiltrate the teachings of the Church. The sacred scriptures should never be changed, never diluted, never touched, never altered, for they sacred and they are from the throne room of heaven itself. How dare man place his DNA and his ideas over that which is heavenly and beyond?
“So take heart to these words and this warning. Be blessed, be encouraged and get ready, for the time is now when the humbling must begin. And it will be short but long. It will be a short period of time but it will feel like the longest period of time, for it will be very intense. And for a period of three years a time of great humbling will come upon this nation, and it will be a heavy three years, a very difficult three years.
“But then things will change, things will turn, and you will go from Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer, Summer into Harvest time.”
“I will wreck her economy”
The late Bible teacher Lance Lambert received a sobering message for Great Britain on 6 August 2011, previously published in Prophecy Today UK:
“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, l 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 l 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; l 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, l will save!
“lt 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 you deeply, but it will end in My Throne and Glory.”
“I will cause them to stumble”
Lance Lambert had previously received a warning in 1998 for the nations over their treatment of Israel:
“My anger is stirred up, says the Lord, against the nations for they are dividing my Land and seeking to destroy My heritage.
“My furious anger is like a boiling cauldron against those powerful states that have produced such strategies, and who by pressure and manipulation are seeking to implement them. Now, I will become their enemy, says the Lord, and I will judge them with natural disasters, by physical catastrophes, by fire, by flood, by earthquakes, and by eruptions. I will touch the seas, the atmosphere, the earth and all that is within them.
“Moreover, I will touch them where it will hurt them the most for I will touch their power and the foundations of affluence and prosperity. I will smash their prosperous economies, says the Lord. And I will overturn, and overturn, and overturn that they may know that I am the Lord. They sit like potentates, so safe, so secure, believing in their own cleverness and wisdom and power, but I, the Lord, will cause them to stumble. I will lead them into confusion and disorder, and I will bind them and delude them so that they will make mistakes because they have not regarded Me, nor honored Me, but rather they have devalued Me, deriding My Word and ignoring My covenants.
“For too long have I been quiet, says the Lord, but now will arise in overflowing anger and fury. In dividing My Land and seeking to demoralize and destroy My people, Israel, they have thrown down the gauntlet. I, the Lord of Hosts, the Almighty One, I will take them on.
“Therefore, you who know Me, whom I have redeemed and saved at such cost, who seek to serve Me and to stand before Me in the place of intercession, learn to abide in Me. For all those storms and troubles will come upon both the redeemed and the unredeemed. For I am your refuge and shelter. Do not fear, but trust in Me, for I will be your strength. Beware of uncommanded work that you may not uncover yourselves and become casualties. For all that which I command you to do, there is grace and power and wisdom and you will be fully covered.
“Do not fear, says the Lord, for I am in charge and I will fulfil all My purpose. Out of this turmoil, I will bring a saved multitude beyond number from among the nations. And I will bring the Bride, the Wife of the Lamb, using the pressures, the afflictions, and the turmoil, to purify and to refine her, if only in a faithful remnant. And in the midst of all this shaking, in the very eye of the storm, I will save Israel. For I will open her blinded eyes and her closed mind and her locked heart, and she will recognize her Messiah, her Lord and Saviour. Tenderly and with unfailing love will I lead Israel. She who is bespattered with blood, persecuted and hated, I the Lord he Holy One of Israel, will bring out of this turmoil redeemed and with glory!
“Therefore, in love, fear Me, says the Lord, your Saviour and Deliverer, and learn to wait on Me. To such I will look, to those who have laid down their lives for My sake, who have humbled themselves before Me, to them will I open My heart, and reveal My mind, and give understanding. For those that wait for Me shall never be confounded or ashamed. But the self-centred, the self-serving and the self-contained, those who are proud and superior, they will be broken, says the Lord. Put your trust in Me alone. Let Me be your all, and you will come through this time with treasure for I will be your eternal unfading treasure.”
One of HEART’s partner pastors, Rev Mark Weeden, “by chance” came across this message of Pastor Colin Urquhart given on 12 June 1992 and believes it is relevant now:
“You are my children. Walking my ways only; do not listen to what others say. Walk in my ways only and see how I will pour out blessing on you.
“I am God of Jews and Gentiles. I love each one of you. Come and I will welcome you. My glory will be amongst you. Come, come, come…
“Do not be concerned at what others think. Only be concerned with what I think.
“There is coming a time of great travail and turmoil on the earth. But those who know how to stand, will stand and shine. Many who refuse to listen to my word will turn.
“Beloved, I need a people of my own, a people for myself, who will not be shaken by the turmoil. I call you to be such a people. If you are such a people, you will have nothing to fear. It will seem as if the events around you cannot touch you, such will be my protection for those who trust me. They will not affect you; I will surround you. I am preparing a people to stand firm.
“I shall gather together those who do not stand firm to be my witness. And people shall see that they are strong. They will shine like lights. Gather together, beloved, around me; not for your sake but for my sake. I am preparing you.
“Do not seek to go off in independence in your own ways in the time of shaking, but stand together.
“Do not give the evil one any opportunity to rejoice over you. He wants to separate and divide you. Those in independence and isolation can easily be separated. Do not allow him to deceive you. Stand together and test every spirit to see that it is of God.
“Have I not warned that even the elect will be deceived? Will there not be false teachers who try to lead you astray? Pay no heed to them. Gather together around the truth, my children. Hold fast to that truth.
“Have I not said that nations will be shaken? Men do not understand how this will happen, nor the swiftness with which it will take place. This is why my children must be ready.
“Beloved, this is no time to be concerned with trivial things or superficial issues. This is a time to walk in my ways, to walk together and not to let anything distract you from the walk of faith which I have planned for you.
“Stand together, stand together…”
“Something is about to be released”
Pastor Clive Urquhart of Kingdom Faith Church, Horsham, spoke on 10 May of something “about to be released”, which would be of a similar magnitude to the days of Noah:
“Get ready for a download. Position yourself. There is something about to be released that is unstoppable. It is of such magnitude that it will be akin to the days of Noah.
“The world will continue to go about its own business and ways, not realising, even though warned, that things are about to overtaken, or flooded, by who I AM.
“The world cannot hear, let alone see or perceive, what I am about to do. I am preparing my Church, like Noah prepared the ark.
“He did so by faith, acting upon what I spoke to him. Even though he had never seen an ark, knew what it was or even knew what it was for, he still prepared it in the face of the unknown.
“The world didn’t understand at that point and thought that he was irrelevant, but this is what I’m doing with my Church at this time.
“I’m preparing her – my Church – for something that she has not seen and not known, on a scale that no-one on earth has experienced.
“As with the days of Noah on the ark, one era of days ended and a short time later, a whole new era of days after the flood began. Everything had changed – everything was new…
“I’m dealing with consumerism and entertainment in the Church, all the distractions and additives or add-ons that make the Church or a church busy but not fruitful. I’m getting my Church back to the essence of its call, the Great Commission. But not in the way that it has maybe gone about it up to this point.
“I’m restoring the priesthood of the believer that is written about in Ephesians 4, where the fivefold ministry – apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher – equip the saints for works of ministry, so that there is the oneness of maturing faith as a body and the unity of a people knowing me, so that the whole measure of the fulness of Christ is revealed once again in homes, in streets, in communities, through the saints. I’m recommissioning the commissioned…”
Clive further commented: “God has got our attention at this time. He has got the Church’s attention at this time and God is working and God is moving. What’s he doing?
“God is making sure that his Church is ready to be agile at this time. Ready to move, ready to respond, to be adaptable, to be responsive to the ways in which he wants us to be and how he wants us to work…
“He’s reviving the priesthood of the believer… the homes and what God is doing in our lives are coming right to the fore. Where’s the harvest going to be harvested primarily? In our homes. Where’s it going to be discipled? Primarily in our homes. And God is restoring something at this time in the Church.”
