Questions Answered: The prophetic, soul-winning, speaking truth in love

Happened to see some videos of Kim Clement being interviewed on TBN the week before 9/11. Kim had already gained a large reputation as a prophet. He says some interesting things.

Certainly, he speaks against laziness and manipulations. I understood him to speak against prophets coming and making a bless me show, that leaves most people out. Is that what you heard?

He expresses some reservations about the “prophetic movement” meaning Christians running around and giving personal prophecies to other Christians. I have expressed some reservations in my own book, Prophetic Order, and have never until today heard others say similar things. He says it is disrespectful to God to misrepresent him. I note that the accuracy is poor, often it is conducted in ways that are prideful or especially disrespectful to the clergy. Further, it contravenes I Corinthians 14 about how such things are handled. I would not be willing to entirely forestall the use of prophetic words in evangelistic contexts, but suggested we needed to be more clear and to do better. Clearly, Kim Clement is more well-known and raised these concerns now nearly 2 decades ago.

He also addresses the importance of soul winning, and how the prophetic might work in this situation. For those who don’t know, he is quoting I Corinthians 14 about how prophecy/the prophets should work.

He also says that today, younger people desperately need to know they have worth to God; they already know that they are sinners. One certainly wonders in 2019, when we hear such a monolithic onslaught of tertiary deviance (deviance taught as correct) coupled with a bullying intimidation against any voice that disagrees, no matter how Biblical, traditional or scientific. Still in all, I think how Kim demonstrates the evangelistic prophetic in the story is very helpful.

If you have a good story about speaking what you knew was the Word of the Lord, or a Holy Spirit lead word, to a sinner, in love, that worked or in others words evoked worship or repentance, please share.
