When reading the latest prophecies from Kim Clement, I was quite bored, actually, because he talks in circles and most of what he says is so vague it can only be viewed as jibberish. The key is that if you talk in vague statements long enough, people will think you’re actually prophesying. Many fall into that trap.
However, one statment Kim Clement made on December 5th in Seattle, Washington wasn’t very vague. He “prophesied” that there would be an assassination attempt on President Barack Obama in the middle of 2010. Actually, he just says, “the President,” but if you read the prophecy in the context it was given, you will see that he can mean no other than the President of the United States himself.
Here are his exact words:
Who is going to control my children? Who is it that will control what’s gonna happen for the youth? Who is it? Though they legislate God said I will break it down. In 2010 there will be a change in the middle of the year, an assassination attempt against your President which I will cause to hold back three groups that shall rise up. But the Spirit of God said I will be merciful. Then there will be changes in the man’s heart, huge changes. There will be a turn to the true Christ, not the false Christ, not the false Christ, the true Christ!
Liberals will say “We are in danger; we are in danger of such a change. Even his countenance has changed, even his eyes have changed.” God said who do you think that I am? I am the one who can take kings and turn them around by the scruff of their neck. I have the hook that I placed in many kings’ mouths and caused them to go into insanity because of their disobedience. (Online Source)
Clement has prophesied a death in the White House before and it has never happened. Do I think this will happen? No. I’m just wondering if the Secret Service has seen this. Notice, he didn’t predict that the president would be assassinated, just that there would be an attempt in 2010. There comes a point when this stuff goes from being absurd to being downright idiotic and dangerous.
I don’t agree with President Barack Obama or his policies, but he is the president of this nation, and, as President, I pray for him. Never would I want to see an attempt made on his life. That would be heartbreaking and tragic. I don’t know if Clement prophesies these things because he has taken leave of his senses or because he really believes they will happen. Whatever the case, I think it’s time someone burst that bubble he’s ensconced himself in and shake him back to reality.
I’m going to use this circumstance to address something I’ve been seeing a lot of lately. While I think Clement’s prophecy in Seattle is, to put it mildly, hogwash, the subject has come up recently of some people experiencing signs and wonders, and because of this, they believe they are sent from God. In fact, some reading this blog may be thinking, “What if there really is an assassination attempt on the President. Does that mean Kim Clement is a true prophet of God?” See, this is how people are led astray. Scripture teaches that even the antichrist will have power to perform signs and lying wonders. It also teaches that Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. It isn’t a question of whether a prediction of Kim Clement’s comes true, it’s a matter of whether what this man teaches is sound biblical doctrine.
Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Though Clement’s track record with prophecy is dismal, even if he accidently does get one right every great once in a while and something truly happens (which hasn’t happened so far), the true test is this – what gospel does he preach? Since he preaches another gospel, he is not a true prophet of the Lord.
Don’t let your guard down. Never forget that even demonic forces can perform signs, but God’s Word is sound. We can not rely on signs and wonders, we must rely on the Scriptures…
2 Timothy 3:13-17:
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them ;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
However, enough of Clement’s prophecies have fallen to the ground that if he happens to hit one once in a while (which hasn’t happened yet), he is still considered a false prophet by Scripture. Even a broken watch is right twice a day, but it doesn’t mean it’s working properly.
No need to worry, though. Kim Clement is a false prophet. Seeing so many led away by signs and wonders, it’s not hard to understand why the antichrist will be able to get such a toe-hold on the earth.
