Earlier this year, I mentioned in one of my posts that I wanted to get past talking about my experiences with the Elijah List and the Prophetic Movement. I have recently come to the realization that this is not God’s plan for me . . . at least in this phase of my life.
There are a couple reasons why I say this:
- I continue to receive many emails from people who are either (a) suspicious that this kind of deception is infiltrating their church or (b) coming out of the deception, and thankful that someone is finally saying something.
- As long as the superstars of the Prophetic Movement continue to provide such ample material for commentary and correction in their teachings and “prophecy”, I feel compelled to hold it up to the Word of God and the Spirit of Truth.
No Smear Here
I’ve occasionally been accused of wanting to smear the Elijah List’s (as well as some of the other ministry’s) reputation(s), nothing could be further from the Truth.
In fact, to attempt to do so would be a futile and foolish task.
The Prophetic Movement (and their associated ministries) will ALWAYS have their adherents until the time that Jesus returns. They may not congregate under the same brand (who knows what the new “movement’s” name will be?), but there will always be a large number of people who will flock to soft and crossless teaching, because it feels good to their flesh.
These same people, when you place their teaching and prophecy in the light of the Word of God and show them their error, will STILL cling tightly to their idols. It makes absolutely NO difference to them.
Would you like to test it out?
In November 2011, Kim Clement prophesied the fall of “two massive” leaders by the Christmas season. Kim believed it was the leaders of Syria and Iran, but it doesn’t matter, the two massive leaders didn’t fall. Held up to the light of scripture, this was a false prophecy, making Kim Clement a false prophet.
“And if you say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’– when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that [is] the thing which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.”
Now, take this proof and show it to your “prophetic” friends. We have a direct quote and we have a prophesied timeframe. Show this to your friends. What did they say? I hope I’m wrong, but chances are, it didn’t make a difference. If it DID make a difference, feel free to let us know by commenting below . . . I WILL REJOICE WITH YOU.
Many people, especially those who support Kim’s ministry, will say that, because he is human, I need to be merciful to him, and I certainly do NOT hate Kim Clement. I’m just as fallible as he is, in fact, I am probably MORE fallible . . . but I have no scriptural obligation to listen to the guy, he speaks presumptuously and says he hears from God.
But the Word would say otherwise.
What’s my point? My point is we are SO CLOSE to His Return and, like it or not, I’m going to continue to expose the error that the enemy is using to deceive those who are perishing. When I see those, who are coming into the church to escape darkness, fall into a yet greater darkness (false truth, false grace and false love), I can’t just stay quiet, and I can’t afford to care what people will think.
I just wanted to be a teacher of the Word and stay “under the radar”, but it looks like that’s not going to happen.
Happy 2012!Kevin Kleint
