June
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my update for June 2014. This update has been recorded in Britain outside of Israel. I am going to read the Scriptures. I am going go to a number of those that we at different times have underlined. First of all in Psalm 33:10-11: The Lord bringeth the counsel of the nations to nought...
January
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this my January 2014 update. 2014 is a year of crisis for the Middle East and for Israel in particular. I will seek to cover a number of matters in this update. The events of the last months have been important and vital for those who intercede for Israel and the Middle East. These are the matters and events I will seek to cover: The passing of Ariel Sharon, secondly the total disarray of Israel's neighbours, thirdly the incredible failure of the Middle East foreign policy of the United States, fourthly the so called peace process between Israel and the Palestinian authority, fifthly the interim agreement between the 5 plus one nations and Iran, sixthly the growing paganization of the Western Nations and the results, seventhly the return of the tribe of Manasseh...

October
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my Update for October 2013. The world scene continues to be grim. It is good to know the Lord in all that is happening. Flood and fires, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and terrorism claiming so many lives in different places. For instance Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya 67 dead, in Pakistan a whole assembly of Christians, 80 dead, 132 in one week dead in Pakistan, Nigeria 50 students shot when they were sleeping just to name a few of the incidents. A few weeks ago here in Israel we celebrated the new Jewish year of 5774. This is the year of the red moons….
June
This is Lance Lambert speaking, and this is my Middle East Update for May 2013. Since my January 2013 update, matters in the world at large, and in the Middle East in particular have continued to deteriorate. Israel has continued to be at the eye of the storm, nor should we be surprised at this state of affairs if we know our Bible. In fact, it would be more surprising if she was not. In this update I will speak about the incredible speed with which the once Christian nations are being paganized, the world situation, the Middle East situation, the Israeli election and its consequences, president Obama’s visit to Israel, and finally, what should we do that know the Lord. There are some Scriptures I will read, they are well known to many of you if not all of you, I will read from the prophesy of Zachariah chapter 12, and just the verses 2-6.
January
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my update for January 2013. The world situation is not getting any better. On every side there is economic distress, financial instability and natural disasters that are having their effect even upon food and production. It seems to me that it is Divine judgement. It is much like the ten plagues that the Lord sent upon Egypt. For the purpose of God to be fulfilled Egypt had to be judged......
2012
October
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my Middle East Update for October 2012. The Jewish year of 5772 or the Roman year of 2012 has been a very difficult year. Israel has lived during that time in an almost continuous atmosphere of war predictions, the predicted war always being rescheduled. The latest prediction was for the end of Sukkot and the American election on November the 6th. This has now been rescheduled for Spring of 2013, after Israel's elections. Let us read the Word of God. First of all in Lamentations chapter 3 and verse 21 to 24: "This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord's Loving Kindnesses that we are not consumed because His Compassions fail not. They are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness. The Lord is my Portion saith my soul therefore will I hope in Him."
April
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my Middle East Update for April/May 2012. In this world full of turmoil, demonstrations, violence, murder and popular uprisings, the Word of the Lord declares to those to trust in Him. As we read in Lamentations Chapter 3 Verse 21 to 25: "This I recall to my mind; therefore have I hope. It is of Jehovah’s loving kindnesses (that is His everlasting Chesed, חסד) that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness. Jehovah is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him. Jehovah is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him" And to that I would like to add in Isaiah chapter 12 and verse 2 and 3…..
January
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my update for January 2012. It is amazing to me how quickly the years pass. It is already 2012. A year for crises for Israel, the Middle East and the world in general. The last year, 2011, was a year of change. Earthquakes….
2011
October
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my Update for October 2011. Because of the situation that we are in at present in the Middle East, I need to underline that this update concerning Israel and the Middle East is in the Light of God’s Word....This update has always been to do with God’s Word. What does God have to say about Israel and the situation we may be in? I want to read from a number of Scriptures that I believe bear on Israel and the Nations at this present time....
May
This is Lance Lambert speaking, and this is my Middle East Update for May 2011. I want to read the Words of the Messiah Jesus from Luke’s Gospel, chapter 21 from verse 25: "And there shall be signs in sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the bilows; men fainting for fear and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; because your redemption draweth nigh." I want to add.....

October
This Update now that I am making for October of this year, 2010, is one of the gravest most serious Updates that I have made, since I began to make Updates in 1986. I want to read the Scriptures first of all, Psalm 83...
2009
May
In my last update, I mentioned how quickly events are unfolding. There has been no let up in that quickness. Since January in my last update, there has been an Israeli election with Bibi Netanyahu incepted as prime minister, the unsuccessful war in Gaza, the continuing economic and worldwide woes and problems and Durban II held at Geneva. I would like to read some scriptures.
January
Unbelievably quickly events are now unfolding. This is my Middle East Update for January 2009, and this is Lance Lambert speaking. Since my last update we have had an American election and the victory of Barack Obama, the financial meltdown and the economic woes that accompany it, a growing world recession, and Israel’s first winter war. I want to read some scriptures.
2008
October
This is Lance Lambert speaking, and this is my Middle East Update for October 2008. Firstly, I have been greatly impressed that in these High Holy Days beginning with Rosh Hashanah, and continuing through to Simchat Torah, all three major convocations, conferences and celebrations have taken as their theme the Lion of Judah. In my estimation, there could be no more apposite theme for the present period of turmoil and confusion in the world...
May
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my Middle East Update for May/June of 2008. Last Wednesday evening over Thursday, according to the Jewish reckoning, we celebrated Israel’s 60th birthday. The 60th anniversary of her renewed modern history. I would like to read a few Scriptures, first of all from the Prophet Isaiah and chapter 66 from verse 5...
January
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my Middle East Update for January 2008. Once again I had a very difficult and complex task to make this tape. I would like to read some Scriptures.
2007
October
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my Middle East Update for October 2007. In fact I am recording this during the days of Succot, the Feast of Tabernacles, in that time we will remember the faithfulness of God in the way that He led the people through the wilderness and finally into the Promised Land. We remember that God will fulfill all His purpose exactly as He has revealed it to us in His Word. I would like to read one or two scriptures.
June
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my June, 2007 update. I want to read some of the scriptures. First of all, the second Psalm: "Why do the heathen rage, and the people meditate a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his Messiah, saying, Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
January
This is Lance Lambert speaking and this is my update for January, 2007. I’m going to, in this update; cover as far as I can in the light of God’s word, the general world situation at present, then the Middle East situation, and finally the Israeli situation. I would like to read from the word of God and I am going to read from Daniel, the book of Daniel and chapter 7, from verse 7...
2006
October
As you are all no doubt aware since my last update, much has happened in Israel and in the Middle East. In this update, I will seek to cover the recent war that lasted 34 days; the consequence of it for the Middle East, and in particular for Israel; the threat of Iran; the ongoing threat of Iran; and the salvation of the Muslims. Of course as always I am seeking to give this update basically in the light of God’s word.
May
This is Lance Lambert speaking, and this is my update day for April 2006. In these past few months since my last update, there have been three principal events that have changed our situation. Firstly is the landslide election of Hamas and the consequences of it; secondly, the Israeli election and the consequences, its outcome and the consequences of that; and, thirdly, Iran’s declaration that she has joined the nuclear club with the consequences of that declaration.
January
The previous year of 2005 was a year most of us will not easily forget. It was a year of extraordinary physical disturbances and eruptions from huge earthquakes and a massive tsunami resulting in unusual loss of life. A year characterized by fires, floods, tornadoes and hurricanes. It was a year also of unending conflict and terrorism reaching new heights of barbarity in Iraq, with Muslim murdering Muslim even using Muslim’s funerals and weddings to kill innocent people.
2005
September
So much is happening and with so much rapidity that it is almost impossible to keep abreast of it. As soon as we have done one Update it is more or less required to do another one because of the events that are taking place. It becomes more and more difficult to produce these Updates because of this complexity of our situation.
