Kim Clement's False Prophecies
The following is a critique of Kim Clement's Prophecies about the New York Terrorist attack in 2001 and the date of the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
(False teacher/prophet quotes are in purple and indented, my
comments are in plain text and scripture is in teal. False teachers rarely use scripture. I have only included those portions I intend to comment on.)
Kim Clement's False Prophecy of the 9/11 Terrorist attack in NYThere is a video of Kim speaking this prophecy on YouTube but because there was so much background noise his son Donne has since transcribed the video here (http://www.kimclement.com/kimclementoldlivedocs/words/PERCEPTIONS/PERCEPTIONSTerrorist7-25-96.htm)
Kim Clement's Prophecy spoken on 7-25-96:
"There has been a terrorist act and there will be another. For the spirit of the Lord says, “America will retaliate, but God says, even as they retaliate with natural weapons of war and they say, we will go the place of the East and we will go and we will bring them down for what they did to our people as they flew in the air over Long Island."
Notice that there was no mention of the twin towers going down or 3000 people killed in this so-called prophecy, only that "a plane flew over Long Island". In fact there were 4 planes involved. Two planes hit the Twin Towers in New York, one hit the Pentagon and the other was deliberately crashed because the heroic passengers believed it was heading for the White House.
Steve Lumbley, of Apostasy Watch, has an alternate explanation for what terrorist attacks Kim Clement was referring to in his article Kim Clement Did not Predict 9-11 He also references a map of the flight paths of the Hijacked planes on September 11, 2001 showing they didn't fly over Long Island, either.
"Beloved, do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have goine out into the world. 1 John 4:1
Another False Prophecy about the 9-11 attack in NY
Here is another prophecy by Kim Clement where others claim that he accurately predicted 9-11 in New York (see page 155) a prophecy given on Saturday, April 20, 1996 (5 years before the NY disaster), at New Life Christian Church, Southgate, MI, where he supposedly predicted the NY Terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. I have shown reasons why this is not true including scripture that disagrees with these claims.
New York City, consumed by a spirit that has even taken hold of the people and caused greed. Tonight the Spirit of the Lord says my Spirit is about to burn so strongly that it will cause a fire to take place and the fire will burn everything that has no been born of my Spirit. . . And God says, righteousness will prevail. I will take every dividing racial spirit and I will destroy it. I will take the cultural demons that have caused people to separate themselves and I will do something that is so mighty that it will be spoken of by people on the West Coast, says the Spirit of the Lord!
- Was "everything" of an evil spirit in NY city burned on 9/11 or just the twin towers?
- Was it only unbelievers who died in the fire or also those "born of my spirit"?
- Were all those who hate other ethnic groups in NY destroyed in the Twin Tower collapse?
- Is there still a racial spirit in NY?
- Was the separation of people's cultural beliefs mended?
The only mending that has been seen since this prophecy was spoken in1996 is in the form of ecumenicalism (unity for the sake of peace, i.e., Rick Warren, Catholic Church, etc., joining with Islam, etc.), which is not of God. Was this truly a prophecy from God, or man?
"If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has NOT spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him."(Deut. 18:22)

Kim Clement's False End Time Prophecy about Osama Ben Laden being captured in 35 days from a prophecy he gave on 1-12-04
"Talk about stepping out, in Utica, NY, for those of you who don't know anything about my ministry, the Lord has given me very, very clear words about political things that have come to pass, very clear. We've had the Secret Service visit me a number of times and investigate because of these prophecies. They are more interested and they have interpretations for this that I and the church didn't even think about."
"Osama Ben Laden said that in 35 days, America, he was prophesying, predicting, that this country would be abolished basically, wiped out, because he has a plan for 35 days. And the word of the Lord came to me. the spirit of the Lord said to me, 'You prophesy that the very thing that he said and predicted for this nation, tell him, prophesy, that that is reversed, and I'm going to bring him [Osama Ben Laden] out in 35 days!' "(Kim Clement on TBN 1-12-04" and )
So here we have so-called prophecy by Kim Clement, proven false on February 16 when Osama Ben Laden was not captured 35 days after Jan 12, 2004. In fact he wasn't captured until May 1, 2011, i.e. over 7 year later.

Chuck Missler and Kim Clement
There is a rumor going around that Chuck Missler has "partnered" up with Kim Clement so I went searching and found a video of Chuck Missler discussing how Kim Clement contacted Chuck and humbly saying he (Kim) realized he had been in error and had taught a lot of things that are not true about eschatology (study of the endtimes) and anxious to repair his errors. Chuck was impressed by his sincerity and integrity.
Kim Admits to Making False Prophecies
April 15, 2004, Kim apologized to his own congregation admitting he had been teaching them wrong in the area of prophetic issues. Chuck Missler was impressed by his sincerity and integrity. Chuck made it clear that he now considers Kim a friend, HOWEVER, he is NOT promoting Kim Clement's ministry or his doctrines. This message used to be posted on his own website but was later removed and is not available on archive.org either, which is strange.
If this is indeed true that Kim Clement is no longer claiming to be a prophet then I will add more information to this article at that time. He won't be the first prophet to repent of his errors as Mark Wattenford has done so also.
Being as Kim Clement died on 11-20-16 from a brain tumor. I hope he truly repented from his errors.
For those who claim that you should not speak against an "anointed prophet": According to scripture we are COMMANDED to judge the teachings of others and name names. For more information check out Judging Others
