Kim Clement, False Prophets, and the Value of Truth

The oth­er day in a con­ver­sa­tion with a ven­dor at work, the min­istry of Kim Clement was rec­om­mend­ed to me. After real­iz­ing it was a guy she was talk­ing about, I remem­bered hav­ing seen him before on TBN. The five min­utes of his show I watched were enough to deter­mine that he was just anoth­er face in the per­son­al­i­ty cult that is pop­u­lar Christianity.

Any­way, it was men­tioned to me that he had proph­e­sied that God was on the verge of some­thing big and that the warm weath­er we’ve been hav­ing this month is a sign of it.

Ever curi­ous, I hopped over to his Wikipedia entry (linked above). On it are list­ed a small hand­ful of failed proph­esy. That is very inter­est­ing to me. 

You see, my Bible has a neat lit­tle pas­sage in it tucked away at the end of the 18th chap­ter of Deuteron­o­my. It goes like this:

But the prophet, which shall pre­sume to speak a word in my name, which I have not com­mand­ed him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of oth­er gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know when the Lord hath not spo­ken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing fol­low not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spo­ken, but the prophet hath spo­ken it pre­sump­tu­ous­ly: thou shalt not be afraid of him. Vers­es 20–22

These prophets which speak pre­sump­tu­ous­ly and fail to pre­dict the future are con­trast­ed with Jesus Christ, the Prophet like unto Moses (Deuteron­o­my 18:15–18).

But even the com­ing of Jesus did­n’t end the com­ing of false prophets, for the Lord warns in no uncer­tain terms, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep­’s cloth­ing, but inward­ly they are raven­ing wolves” (Matthew 7:15)! Don’t miss that verse, friends: false prophets are not going to stand out like a sore thumb! They are going to look like and act like sheep — like Christians!

John, that beloved apos­tle of the Lord, warns his fel­low believ­ers as well, “Beloved, believe not every spir­it, but try the spir­its whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1).

Let’s put those pieces togeth­er, from Moses, Jesus, and John:

  • False prophets are unable to pre­dict the future with 100% accuracy.
  • False prophets will look like Christians.
  • Chris­tians are respon­si­ble for test­ing the words of every prophet, believ­ing only those are proven to be of God.

Mr. Kim Clement has failed to pre­dict the future with 100% accu­ra­cy. Regard­less of any­thing else he says or does — regard­less of whether he has had some suc­cess with proph­e­sies or not — it is the Chris­tian’s duty to reject him as a false prophet.

Like I said ear­li­er, though, pop­u­lar Chris­tian­i­ty is a cult of per­son­al­i­ty. It is dif­fi­cult to warn against such indi­vid­u­als because there are many peo­ple who take it as a per­son­al insult to their own faith.

How­ev­er, we wor­ship Jesus Christ, He who is the Truth; there is no room for untruth in our beliefs or our devo­tions, no mat­ter how emo­tion­al­ly attached we are to some­thing or someone.

It is a seri­ous mat­ter to buy into the lies of a false prophet, how­ev­er. Check out Jere­mi­ah 14. In it you’ll find the Lord telling Jere­mi­ah some­thing, with him reply­ing that the prophets have already told the peo­ple some­thing dif­fer­ent! Not only are the false prophets marked for death, but those who give cre­dence to their proph­e­sies are pun­ished as well.

Nev­er under­es­ti­mate the val­ue God places on truth, and cer­tain­ly nev­er hes­i­tate to reject any­one who speaks false­ly as a prophet of the Lord. As Chris­t­ian tele­vi­sion becomes more pop­u­lar, more acces­si­ble, and a big­ger cash cow, you can bet that false prophets are going to abound ever more.

  1. Let me respond by say­ing that I agree with the post above, good job, and the oth­er thng that just “chaps my hide” is the Kim Clement prophe­cy on Bin Laden that is on the Eli­jah List that has not come to pass yet. It has been there for atleast 2 years and still no pass­ing of this word.

  2. I went to see Kim Clement in per­son on Sat­ur­day night in Orlan­do at the Mas­ter’s Touch church. I felt good about all that was proph­e­sied and spo­ken over the peo­ple. Even in the bible, it tells us to test the spir­its to see whether they are of God, because many are false prophets and not of God ( 1 John 4:1) . Kim Clement does not try to get any glo­ry from this, he gives ALL the glo­ry to God for this gift that has been giv­en to him.
    I went with expec­ta­tion, and to see for myself, just what this was all about. I came away feel­ing like God had done a work in my life and home, and I will con­tin­ue to believe that this will come to pass. If not, there is my answer. Until then, I will not doubt, only trust that God will be God, no mat­ter what.
    The world is hun­gry. Not for phys­i­cal food, but spir­i­tu­al food. My soul was sure­ly fed.

    1. I’ll Agree Ang­ie about What u said about Kim Clement i don’t believe he a False Prophet in why i said that cause what HAPPEN about Pres­i­dent Trump in many oth­er things he have Said came to pass peo­ple want BELIEVE if its Was Jesus him­self REMEMBER what they said to Jesus he was­n’t this ir that so they going to say the same things about Him as well of US!!

      1. From what I have seen and heard on Trump and impeach­ment well he said it and it is hap­pen­ing right now hard not to agree with. He was elect­ed Dems are try­ing to impeach him and they are in dis­ar­ray and the witch did try to be President .

    2. It’s sad watch­ing how peo­ple want some­thing so bad­ly they dis­re­gard oppos­ing evi­dence. But his­to­ry had proven Kim Clement is a fraud. Once a fraud, always a fraud in the prophe­cy business.

      Uti­ca, New York, Jan. 10, 2004. Kim Clement proph­e­sied Osama Bin Laden would be cap­tured with­in 35 days, or by Feb­ru­ary 14th. He also said April 11, 2004 (East­er) would mark the begin­ning of the end of ter­ror­ist activ­i­ties. Every­body knows after that came 911 and Isis rav­aged the Mid­dle East.

      These are the cap­ture dates that failed.
      • Feb­ru­ary 14, no capture
      • March 11, still no capture.
      • April 11 , still no capture.

      Final­ly, he claimed his proph­esy should have been inter­pret­ed that God would start reveal­ing Bin Laden’s hid­ing place instead of an actu­al capture.

      Ulti­mate­ly, Oba­ma pulled off the killing of Bin Laden sev­en years lat­er on May 2, 2011.

      In ancient times a per­son like Clement would have been stoned for giv­ing a false proph­esy. The bible makes it very clear that one false proph­esy inval­i­dates that per­son as a prophet. He is then con­sid­ered a false prophet.

  3. Psalm 105:15 states, “Say­ing, Touch not mine anoint­ed, and do my prophets no harm.”
    Eph­esians 2:20 informs us that the struc­tur­al foun­da­tion of the New Tes­ta­ment church is Jesus Christ, the chief cor­ner stone, and under His head­ship, apos­tles and prophets. Notice that this verse does not say that the foun­da­tion­al lead­er­ship of the church is pas­tors, teach­ers, evan­ge­lists, elders, dea­cons, or some­one else. It is under­stand­able that there is much skep­ti­cism about prophets and the prophet­ic today, giv­en the severe abus­es of many in the “faith camp” and the lying, flat­ter­ing div­ina­tion that often pass­es for “prophe­cy,” but true prophets still walk among us today. Con­sid­er the fruit in broth­er Clemen­t’s life. If you actu­al­ly watch him or attend one of his meet­ings, you will see a great deal of humil­i­ty. You will not hear him pro­lif­i­cal­ly promis­ing a Lexus or pres­i­den­cy of a major cor­po­ra­tion. We must be care­ful not to judge that which we do not yet under­stand. Con­sid­er also that a lit­tle over a month before Hur­ri­cane Kat­ri­na, the Lord showed Prophet Clement a prophet­ic vision or prophe­cy of the storm. If you look on his web­site, you will see. As for tim­ing of the ful­fill­ment of prophe­cies, scrip­ture says we see in part and we prophe­cy in part (I Corinthi­ans 13:9). A prophet can receive a prophe­cy and mis­tak­en­ly think that he or she under­stands the tim­ing of its ful­fill­ment. I am not say­ing that this has hap­pened with Kim Clement but we must be care­ful not to oper­ate in a crit­i­cal spir­it. Old Tes­ta­ment prophets were giv­en glimpses of future events that in some cas­es still have not man­i­fest­ed 2500+ years lat­er. This is the case with much of what was shown to Isa­iah, Daniel and Zechariah.

      You took the words out of my mouth but I will add more. I find it hard to believe any­one espe­cial­ly a Chris­t­ian would try and cri­tique a prophet in this man­ner. Quite bold to say the least. I have lis­tened to many of his ser­mons, maybe not the right word, so what to call them? He plays instru­ments and sings and gives prophet­ic Words from the Lord. So I guess one could say he per­forms. We are not to get caught up in the lan­guage of man. Words and mean­ings are a cre­ation of man. God knows the heart and only He is qual­i­fied to judge.

      We are told in the Bible that we would know them by their fruits. I have not seen or read any­thing that would lead me to believe Kim has caused harm to any­one. He blessed many peo­ple and per­son­al accounts cred­it him with bring­ing many peo­ple to sal­va­tion in Christ.

      You used Wikipedia as a source , it is well known not to use them for ref­er­ences as any­one can write what­ev­er they want. Many pro­fes­sors and teach­ers instruct stu­dents not to use Wikipedia for papers.

  4. Sor­ry, no, I can’t take any­one claim­ing to a prophet if they’re ignor­ing what 1 Corinthi­ans 11 says. Read­ing vers­es 11 and 14 sor­ta ends it for me regard­ing Clement.

    And I like that his web­site refers to his events as “per­for­mances.”

    Bib­li­cal prophets did­n’t per­form… They proph­e­sied and ministered.

    You can keep your TBN-fla­vored enter­tain­ment ’cause it sure isn’t for me.

      1. Actu­al­ly, it was Elisha, and again, he did­n’t per­form; Clement admit­ted he was sim­ply per­form­ing. Elisha’s proph­esy­ing — like the proph­esy­ing of all of the prophets — hap­pened as the Spir­it moved, not accord­ing to sched­ules — whether church hours or tele­vi­sion pro­duc­tion hours. There is sim­ply no cor­re­la­tion between mod­ern day “prophets” (or much else in the Charis­mat­ic branch of Chris­ten­dom) and what actu­al­ly hap­pened in the Bible. If the Scrip­tures are the judge of what is true, then it is actu­al­ly quite easy to reject that which is false, which we are unequiv­o­cal­ly called to do.

        1. I just left a mes­sage say­ing I have come to the con­clu­sion that Clement was a false prophet. How­ev­er, to your point here, I have much of the time heard Clement say that a prophe­cy was giv­en to him ear­li­er and he is recount­ing it to the audi­ence at that time. So it was not just an “on cue” thing.

        2. Kristina L. Allen

          Here is how you can tell a false prophet from a true one. The false prophet is hap­py in this world. You won’t find a true prophet hap­py in this world. Eccle­si­astes 1:18 says, For in much wis­dom is much grief,
          And he who increas­es knowl­edge increas­es sor­row. Also of Yeshua the Bible says, Isa­iah 53:3
          He is despised and reject­ed by men, A Man of sor­rows and acquaint­ed with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. A true prophet hates this world, because a true prophet sees the rav­ages of sin. A true prophet feels the rejec­tion GOD feels when His peo­ple turn their backs on Him. I’m not talk­ing about the world, I’m talk­ing about His peo­ple. A true prophet would nev­er observe pagan hol­i­days. A true prophet would hon­or the Torah as the Word of GOD, not treat it as a his­to­ry text book. I live in the Prophets of the OT, because I can relate, hav­ing lived a life of sor­row. Am I a true prophet? NO, but I am a woman of many sor­rows, hav­ing had most of my off­spring reject me and YHVH also.

  5. I agree that typ­i­cal­ly longer hair is not for a man. Paul address­es that in the NT. But con­sid­er the Scrip­tur­al prin­ci­pal of the “Nazarite Vow,” found in Num­bers 6 and the exam­ple of Sam­son in the book of judges. The vow of a Nazarite involved a spe­cial or height­ened lev­el of con­se­cra­tion and sep­a­ra­tion unto the Lord. That vow and its sanc­ti­fied lifestyle involved, as you will see in the Scrip­ture, men not cut­ting their hair. There were spe­cial com­mands or injunc­tions from God that were direct­ed to those mak­ing the Nazarite Vow, among them, no con­sump­tion of alco­holic bev­er­ages, wear­ing one’s hair longer, not com­ing near to or touch­ing corpses. The spir­i­tu­al thrust of the Nazarite Vow was a lifestyle of spe­cial ded­i­ca­tion to the Lord and His holiness.

    How do we know that God Him­self has not com­mand­ed Kim Clement to wear his hair the way he does? How do we know that Kim Clement is not a mod­ern day Nazarite?

    Old Tes­ta­ment prophets, and I would sub­mit, those of today, are dif­fer­ent from oth­er peo­ple and dif­fer­ent from oth­er Chris­tians. They are often mis­un­der­stood, mis-labeled, defamed, stoned (both ver­bal­ly and lit­er­al­ly) and are “with­out hon­or in their own coun­try,” which in this case is with­out hon­or among their own Chris­t­ian brethren and the church.

    The point behind all of this is that we need to be cir­cum­spect in our han­dling of God’s ser­vants, the prophets. Amos 3:7 tells us “Sure­ly the Lord God will do noth­ing, but he revealeth his secret unto his ser­vants the prophets.” Notice that the Lord gives His prophets the inside track and the heads-up before things hap­pen on earth, and uses them to explain to the rest of the church what these events mean. True prophets are close to the heart of God. He refers to them as “his ser­vants.” He regards them high­ly. We need to respect them.

    In Acts 5:34–39″ Gamaliel wise­ly cau­tioned that what­ev­er is not of God will even­tu­al­ly fail, but in the mean­time, while every­thing is play­ing out, we need to be cau­tious and watch our atti­tudes, because that which we ques­tion the valid­i­ty of MAY be of God, and “…if it be of God, ye can­not over­throw it; lest hap­ly ye be found even to fight against God (v.39)”

    I don’t want to be over­ly stri­dent, but if I were you, my broth­er, I would tread light­ly on this issue, con­sid­er­ing that the Lord may show up in your life to address your improv­i­dent crit­i­cism of HIS ser­vants. Kim Clement may not be per­fect, and who this side of heav­en is, but I would not want to be judged by the same stan­dard of absolute per­fec­tion that you would impose on him and oth­ers. None can with­stand that lev­el of scruti­ny. Sow­ing and reap­ing is still an immutable pre­cept of the Bible. We will be judged with the same stan­dard that we use to judg e others.

  6. I’m not wor­ried at all that I will be judged for my crit­i­cisms of Clement, sim­ply because I have made the Word of God my stan­dard in that regard.

    Is he a Nazarite? I high­ly doubt it. Go read Num­bers 6 a few times; the Nazarite vow — except in the instance of Sam­son — was a tem­po­rary thing. Dur­ing it, no razor was to touch the head — Clement clear­ly still shaves, for he lacks a beard. Right there he’s already failed the vow.

    Like­wise, has he avoid­ed all grapes and grape prod­ucts? Does he real­ly plan to offer a burnt offer­ing when the vow is fulfilled?

    No, sor­ry, Ben, you are speak­ing of things you do not under­stand. You’re grasp­ing at what­ev­er you can to defend Clement bib­li­cal­ly, but in so doing you are com­ing up quite short.

  7. Joseph benJudah

    If this Kim Clement is a false prophet let him be cursed with a curse! A prophet must be 100% accu­rate all the time. And what has he done for the State of Israel? Signed Joseph benJudah

  8. I’m sure every­one can argue about a prophe­cy made to the nation will come to pass or if it ever will…but Kim Clement, a false prophet? I think not. He gave me a word, actu­al­ly 3 words, about a year ago and every sin­gle thing he said has come to pass. Every last detail. Some could say he guessed it, but trust me the things he told me no one could guess. God spoke to that man and no one can con­vince me oth­er wise. My advice to all of you is to not bash a man of God. Don’t touch God’s annoint­ed. And Kim Clement..that’s an anoint­ed prophet. I am in his meet­ings in Cal­i­for­nia fre­quent­ly and every time I go my life changes. This is one man you do not want to mess with. And before jump­ing to con­clu­sions about whether his prophe­cy’s will come true, why not have faith and wait for God’s per­fect tim­ing. After all, faith is what God is after.

  9. Joseph benJudah

    What ever hap­pened to his E Fuel Prophe­cy? And how much mon­ey does he receive and what Salary does he give him­self.? Does he sup­port the State of Israel? Please let me know.. Shalom.

  10. David,

    “My advice to all of you is to not bash a man of God. Don’t touch God’s annointed.”

    Once again a broth­er uses the typ­i­cal response to those who ques­tion whether a man as Kim Clement is a true prophet or not. David can you SCRIPTURALLY sup­port what he is doing as a true prophet?

    YOUR respon­si­bil­i­ty is to test even those words that came to you from him to the scrip­tures. Even the anti-christ can coun­ter­fi­et the real. You need to be very care­ful what you blind­ly accept with­out test­ing (a com­mand from the Lord through the God inspired, infal­li­ble scripture)by the very word of God.

  11. On Jan­u­ary 13, 2004, he proph­e­sied con­cern­ing Osama Bin Laden- ” I’m going to bring him out in 35 days. There is a res­ur­rec­tion day com­ing over this East­er. This East­er will be one of the great­est East­ers this nation has ever cel­e­brat­ed. Why? Because there will be a res­ur­rec­tion of the dead, speak­ing spir­i­tu­al­ly of rev­e­la­tion that has died, of prophet­ic words that have died and been buried in the ground. This East­er, not only will I bring your great­est ene­my out, but I will also bring about a severe judg­ment against the pow­ers and the prin­ci­pal­i­ties that have come against my ser­vants, against my peo­ple. There shall be a judgment.”

    Here’s the eli­jahlist page so you can read it for your­selves:

    On Decem­ber 26, 2000, he proph­e­sied there would be a cure for aids by 2002. On March 19, 2003 he proph­e­sied no Amer­i­cans would be killed in the war on Iraq.

    Believe me, if I thought I were “touch­ing God’s anoint­ed”, I would­n’t be post­ing this- but I don’t believe that’s the case. Bet­ter to warn sheep about the wolves.

  12. Amein! to Ken,

    The dis­play of defence of this false prophet Kim Clement shows how far APOSTATE peo­ple have become. So gullible! There was even more strict­ness in the4 ORIGINAL times of the true believ­ers of who was real or fake. Those who defend Mr.Clement would also con­sid­er them “crit­i­cal”. These Laodicean defend­ers of Mr. Clement would also be chewed up by those Nazarenes!

    The spir­it of delu­sion has gone forth already, the Scrip­tures quot­ed already to what is expect­ed of a prophet is very clear, but many seemed to have watered it down that these peo­ple ALLOW these ‘prof­its’ to keep going. In true believ­er times, they would have been executed.

    And come on folks… go more than HOW a per­for­mance MADE YOU *FEEL*. THAT IS FLESH!!! What is going on in the spir­it is the ques­tion? Many spir­its can make you feel good. So much witch craft has gone forth that MANY on this board have no idea, that they are being MESMERIZED (BEWITCHED!).

    Shalom and Selah in Messiah!!

  13. Sip­pie: Go look in your con­cor­dance for two scriptures:

    1) In the Psalms, David spoke of not touch­ing God’s anoint­ed and doing His prophets no harm, and 2) to the mer­ci­ful, He shows Him­self mer­ci­ful. Would you hold your­self to the same stan­dard of per­fec­tion which you would apply to oth­ers? selah.

  14. Hi b.c. :)

    Harm isn’t done to any­one by show­ing that what was claimed as “thus saith the Lord” was nev­er real­ly spo­ken by God. God is nev­er wrong about any­thing so when “His prophets” are wrong it MUST be told.

    And less you think I’m a ces­sa­tion­ist believ­ing God does­n’t speak through prophets any more, trust me I’m not. As a mat­ter of fact, I’m griev­ed that this stuff hap­pens on a con­tin­u­al basis with no account­ing from the very peo­ple who SHOULD be bring­ing these false words into account.

    We have to take the whole coun­cil of scripture:

    Do not put out the Spir­it’s fire; do not treat prophe­cies with con­tempt. TEST EVERYTHING. Hold on to THE GOOD. Avoid every kind of evil. 1st Thess. 5:19–22 [my emphasis]

    be blessed,


  15. Why is it that all those defend­ing the false prophets of today throw out the scrip­tur­al test of a false prophet and replace it with how they FEEL. God tells us in His word not to go by our FEELINGS.
    Real­ly ridicu­lous argu­ments are giv­en like the following:
    Sip­pie: Go look in your con­cor­dance for two scriptures:
    1) In the Psalms, David spoke of not touch­ing God’s anoint­ed and doing His prophets no harm, and 2) to the mer­ci­ful, He shows Him­self mer­ci­ful. Would you hold your­self to the same stan­dard of per­fec­tion which you would apply to oth­ers? selah.
    end of quote:
    Peo­ple like this define God’s anoint­ed by how this per­son makes them FEEL NOT by HOW GOD tells them to test if the per­son is from God or not. Once they have defined this per­son is from God by if he makes them FEEL good, then they will not lis­ten to any­one else when they point out how God tells us to test if they are a false prophet or false teacher.
    This is total­ly oppo­site of how God tells us to do it. God tells us how to deter­mine if they are a prophet from God and it does not include FEELINGS or the per­son them­selves say­ing they are prophets of God. God sets the stan­dard so high that He does not allow for even one lit­tle error when they make a prophe­cy. This means if he is 100% accu­rate in giv­ing you 1 or 100 prophe­cies but then they are wrong on even one lit­tle proph­esy for some­one else or on some­thing else, GOD tells us they are a false prophet. You don’t need to argue with any body call­ing them a false prophet because, you know he is a true prophet because, ( fill in the blank.) Your argu­ment does not over­ride God’s word in how to deter­mine if they are a prophet of God (God’s anoint­ed.) It is God who has giv­en us the way to test them. When you say they are God’s prophets but they fail the test then it is you who are in oppo­si­tion to God’s word, not the one point­ing out the per­son fails the test God put in place to test them.
    You’r “FEELINGS,” are not the judge of this per­son being a false prophet, GOD is and if He tells us how to check to see if they are a false prophet and the per­son falls into that def­i­n­i­tion, THEN THEY ARE A FALSE PROPHET. If you con­tin­ue to believe they are a true prophet, then accord­ing to God’s Word, you to will be judged right along with the false prophet. No mat­ter how you FEEL about that, it will not stop you from being judged by God for believ­ing a false prophet over what GOD has said in His word. GOD said it and it is each of our respon­si­bilty first to know God’s word and then to take God’s word over any­thing else that can be raised up over His word, LIKE our emo­tions, or if some­one lies by telling you they are a prophet from God when they fail the test God put in place to test them.

  16. I start­ed to research false prophets because I had felt a warn­ing in my spir­it. I agree with com­ments about being care­ful about words spo­ken through the prophets. There will be a group of peo­ple that will be lead astray. We know that these are the last days and the anti-chirst is already here. World events reveal this. I know we should not cri­tise the world, Jesus is going to do that but there is a scrip­ture that says we can judge our own. ~Invid­u­als have been hurt by peo­ple giv­ing false pro­he­cies, any word needs to be weighed very care­ful­ly, ie is this for now, does this need to be put to prayer, is this my own hope or is this the inspired word of God. Father God will anoint cer­tain peo­ple to prophe­cy but it is giv­en by hum­ble peo­ple who don’t claim to be any­thing else than a ser­vant. They were called men of God. They lived by faith, no beau­ti­ful char­i­ots, beau­ti­ful hous­es, no design­er clothes. I won­der what these mod­ern day evan­glelists will say to those who have died in provety, those lit­tle babies that have died for the want of the basics. I real­ly get con­cerned about these indi­vid­u­als that won’t except con­truc­tive critisim. They will be account­able to God at the end of the for their actions. Lets just get on with the last days and pray that our broth­ers and sis­ters won’t be lead astray. I want to be one of the five vir­gins that goes through the door

    1. Terri Patterson

      God uses who He wants, he doesn’t con­sid­er their W‑2. Too many here are try­ing to put God in a build­ing or book or oth­er cre­ations of man. There are many that seem to have known Kim’s heart. I have read most post here and I haven’t read ones talk­ing about their feel­ings. Maybe I missed all of those but most here have giv­en rea­sons for their beliefs. No one that has post­ed here has any rea­son to talk down to any­one or crit­i­cize other’s reasoning.

      I do know that over and over the Bible speaks of love for our neigh­bors. Jesus seem to put lov­ing oth­ers real­ly high on His list of com­mand­ments. Love one anoth­er the same as Jesus loves each of us, even with know­ing our sins. My good­ness get over your reli­gious stuff.

  17. I had some­one post some­thing about him yes­ter­day and straight away I had red flags pop­ping up all over the place. First of all was the fact that he gives him­self a title, that puts me off straight away.
    I have checked him out and I real­ly do not like what I see. I believe he’s a false prophet too. There’s just some­thing not right about him.
    I tried to warn the per­son who post­ed about him by say­ing that as far as I know the prophets in the bible were 100% cor­rect and that Kim isn’t. I got told that I don’t under­stand how it all works and that when I can match Kim’s prophe­cies for cor­rect­ness, then this per­son will take note of my com­ments. I have only been a Chris­t­ian a cou­ple of years and this man has been a Chris­t­ian for some 30 years, so how he can’t dis­cern the truth wor­ries me.
    We are told to warn peo­ple of the wolves, but if they don’t lis­ten, that’s their prob­lem I suppose.
    As for me, I choose to fol­low what God says in the bible, not what man says when he’s play­ing a piano.

  18. Seeking the truth

    These proph­esy­ings con­cern me a great deal. We have to study God’s word and make sure we right­ly divide it. My questions:
    1. Did the prophets of old col­lect­ed tithes and offer­ings before and after they proph­e­sied? Last time I checked, some where mocked, some were impris­oned and many were killed or stoned to death. Nobody I know will give to prophets of doom and gloom…
    2. Did the prophets proph­esy impend­ing judge­ments or some things that are too good to hear, for instance King Ahab who impris­oned Mic­ah because of his gloomy prophe­cy. Many prophe­cies con­cern sin and repen­tance, even the birth of Jesus in Isa­iah, is about our redemp­tion through Him and His sac­ri­fice on the cross.
    3. If we are obey­ing God’s word, is His word not enough to con­firm that He will bless us? Like Proverbs 1 and Psalms 1, do we always have to hear some­one con­firm this? We also have the Holy Ghost who will give us peace that pass­es all under­stand­ing if we make wise choic­es accord­ing to God’s prin­ci­ples that is if we are tru­ly born again.
    Most peo­ple who seek medi­ums and sooth­say­ers do so because they have no idea where they are head­ed. I have done this a few times before I became a believ­er much to my shame now. I even con­sult­ed a tarot read­er. And there is a huge dif­fer­ence, it’s about I, me and myself, proph­esy­ings is most­ly about sin, repen­tance and God’s judgement.….
    If we as born again believ­ers, are study­ing God’s word with the Holy Ghost’s help, then we will know His will for our lives and yes God sends con­fir­ma­tion through our broth­ers and sis­ters in Christ. Remem­ber the scrip­ture, ‘my peo­ple per­ish for lack of knowledge’.……friends the time will come when bibles will be scarce that what­ev­er scrip­tures we hide in our hearts is so pre­cious, more pre­cious than gold.…take heed my friends, these are dark days.…

  19. I am so thankful,Rick,when some­one in this day and age of deception,will speak truth,unafraid to expose false prophets.Thankyou.You do use scrip­ture as a reference,not speak­ing out of malice,in the desire to help those being led away from the truth of His Word.May He con­tin­ue to use you for His purpose,His glory.

  20. Rick,I’ve got to fig­ure this one out.You do a ser­vice in expos­ing false prophets,which is sore­ly need­ed in the church today.Then I click on About Rick Beck­man and see that you are a for­mer Christian,now an infidel.Why would you even care about the decep­tion being per­pe­trat­ed upon Christians,if you no longer have faith in the sav­ing grace of Almighty God,through His Son,the Lord Jesus Christ.I’m pray­ing that He will draw you back to Himself,that you not be a part of the great falling away.I pray that you repent in tears,as Peter,who denied Jesus three times. God does love you,let Him heal the hurt,or disillusionment,that you may once again come under the shad­ow of His wings.Where can you go,that He is not there?

  21. I remem­ber Kim Clement proph­esy­ing over a young man with aids that he was healed and should “Go tell the world”! This young man did exact­ly that and a few years lat­er was hos­pi­tal­ized and died of aids. At the time of the proph­esy their was great excite­ment in the build­ing and offer­ing plates were passed. I have kept track through the years of his “Min­istry” I see no rea­son to call Kim a prophet. I do see rea­sons to call him a charlatan!
    I am so thank­ful I was deliv­ered out of the the­o­log­i­cal con­structs that pro­mote this fool­ish­ness. I pray Kim Clements decep­tions and oth­ers like him who sell sen­sa­tion­al­ism will be exposed and duped Chris­tians will return to sound doctrine.

  22. To those say­ing we must not risk judg­ing God’s annoint­ed: so, is that your response to Paul writ­ing crit­i­cal let­ters to the church­es or Jesus warn­ing the church­es of Revelation?

    To the poster who says Kim pre­dict­ed life events in a per­son­al read­ing: have you ever heard of medi­ums or div­ina­tion? It is not Biblical.

    I’d be wary of any per­son com­ing out of South Africa or with asso­ci­a­tion to the Toron­to Bless­ing — Howard Browne, Copeland, Bak­er, Bethel, Hill­song, Engle, White, Gum­bel etc. All give ‘Catholic reunion’ proph­esy (while Rome active­ly preach­es all reli­gions lead to God) and all are false.

  23. Thank you for lay­ing it out so clear­ly. I DID believe Kim Clement was the gen­uine arti­cle. Then, the past week, I’ve REALLY been pur­su­ing the Lord’s voice. And some things that stood out as yel­low flags to me with regard to Clement start­ed to bug me more. And I researched, and lo and behold I found many inac­cu­rate prophe­cies aside from his famous “Trump” prophecy.

    I real­ized that I’d fall­en into the trap of lik­ing my ears being massaged. :-(

    Your three points are so clear:

    False prophets are unable to pre­dict the future with 100% accuracy.
    False prophets will look like Christians.
    Chris­tians are respon­si­ble for test­ing the words of every prophet, believ­ing only those are proven to be of God.

    Thank you!
