Clement predicts California quake will bring prosperity to the nation


On May 22 2009 Kim Clement spoke the following words in San Jose California.

For God said, "What I'm going to do is going to be called absurd, preposterous. It shall be called ineloquent, and they shall say of this move, 'The absurdity of it causes them to be marked as clinically insane.'" But God said, "Would you understand that it is My desire for you to enter into the realm of creativity? I am creating miracles." Men have said, "Where shall they come from?" Christ took the miracle, spat into the ground, created two eyeballs and shoved them into a blind man." God said, "Men are blind."

"For there shall be an earthquake in California," but God said, "It shall be of a magnitude that they shall say, 'It is one of the highest ever,' and they shall say, 'How is it that men were not killed and why is it that so many lives were spared?' It shall be My sign," says the Lord.

"For out of the earth and because of this earthquake, there shall come something that shall bring a new energy and it shall start in California, and California shall not be bankrupt. It shall be the nation that shall be filled with prosperity because of what shall come from the earth," says the Lord!

God's about to do the most unusual things He's ever done!

Most of Clements predictions are vague enough to allow the hearer to read into it just about anything he wants. This one though is pretty specific.

1. California shall experience an earthquake

2. The recorded magnitude shall be one of the highest ever

3. No one will die

4. A new 'energy' will come forth from the earth that will bring prosperity to the state and the nation.

For years now Clement has been 'prophesying' that a new energy source would be discovered allowing the US to reduce it's dependence on foreign oil and at the same time allow God's people to become fabulously wealthy by investing in it. He has referred to this new energy source as the "Big - E"

But He tells me there's something other than petroleum or gas or whatever you call it, oil, that's coming forth that's going to be used. 'Invest in it for it will bring some of you millions of dollars within a 14 month period' says the Lord. It begins with an "e"..." (Kim Clement, May 22, 2005)

On Sept 3rd, 2005, in Whittier, CA, Kim prophesied about this and more. Here's an excerpt from that night:

..........'Remember what I told you about the big "E"?'

"For those that don't know it, God said that there's a big 'E' that's being brought forth. Not petroleum, this is going to be a new source. God said they are going to have to press in to get that energy or that source to this nation. In other words, they cannot rely on the source or the natural resources. They cannot rely upon oil. There is something else; the government of the USA is about to release that, and release it, it shall. It's going to be a fantastic thing.

"All I know is, I heard it in the secret place. This is going to force the United States of America to the point where they will not rely on the Middle East anymore. There will be a source that they will have within this Nation.

"It shall come from the garbage, it will come from the ground, it will come from paper, and it will come from bugs eating a bunch of stuff. I'm seeing a bunch of bugs eating a bunch of stuff. God said this is going to be the craziest thing. They are going to say, 'Wow, this is being wasted. The creatures are eating what could be used to cause our engines to work and our vehicles to move.'

"I'm seeing this bunch of bugs eating this stuff and there it is; that's it right there. When this happens, the United States shall rise above the wealth of the Middle East, in terms of oil, and it shall take over. And they shall say, 'Now, take your oil and shove it.' This is the time for America to press in.

January 29, 2006
"In this summer, opportunity will be created for millions of people in the kingdom to be debt free. For God said, there is new source of energy that I am raising up. This Nation's economy is about to change for the better. God said, people will say, "it's impossible." But God says, you will look to the middle east no more. In fact, they will come to you, why? Because God says, I am turning it around. This is the year of pay back, says the Lord. This is the year for Me to pay back what the enemy stole away. If you believe it, grab a hold of it because it is coming to you..."

If the summer of 2006 brought an opportunity for millions of people in the kingdom to be debt free by investing in a new energy source I must have missed it....along with pretty much everybody else!

I have long believed this "new discovery" Clement is speaking about is cellulosic ethanol a bio-fuel produced from organic waste (garbage?). Scientists have discovered a process by which enzyme's (bugs?) are used to break down and extract energy from virtually any type of organic product such as saw dust, corn stalks, grass clippings, etc. This process has been widely known and under development for many years.

Cellulosic ethanol output could "explode"

Will Cellulosic Ethanol Take Off?

Cellulosic Ethanol: One Molecule Could Cure Our Addiction to Oil

Major Cellulosic Ethanol Production Technique Breakthrough Announced by Mascoma

The future of ethanol production has challenges to overcome

As you can see from these articles the process still has some technological hurdles to clear and even then it is uncertain whether or not cellulosic ethanol can be produced in large enough amounts and at low enough cost to make it competitive with oil.

Kim Clement seem to be increasingly frustrated by the lack of progress in this area. Now he is claiming an earthquake will somehow bring forth the prophesied energy source. The bottom line is this. Clement did not get this 'prophecy' from the Lord. The idea and the process has been written about in trade and technology publications going back to at least the mid nineties.

Clement is like a cheap magician, a master of prestidigitation, or sleight of hand. He makes people believe he has a supernatural source for information like this when he probably read it in the Wall Street Journal. Unfortunately many Christians, especially those caught up in the so called prophetic movement are ill informed about current events and seem to have extremely short memories. They love to have their ears tickled with predictions of great material wealth and powerful spiritual anointings coming to Gods people. Just like those who follow the tabloid psychics they ignore Clements many prophetic misses and hang on to the hope that eventually he will be right about something.

In the end this is just one more false prophecy by the leading false prophet of the Laodicean church. A prophecy that will be discussed on the prophetic internet message boards for a few weeks only to be forgotten when the next ear tickling prognostication comes forth from the mouth of this liar. I, however will not forget this one. I will keep a record of this false prophecy as I have kept records of Clements many previous lies in order to expose him as the con man that he is.

I am so sure that this prophecy will never occur that I will make a deal with all of Clements disciples and sycophants. If this prediction actually comes to pass I will publically repent and apologize to Clement and all his followers.

Here's the rules;

1. California must experience an actual earthquake. This cannot be a 'spiritual' earthquake since there is no way to measure the magnitude of a 'spiritual' quake.

2. The quake must be one of the highest magnitude quakes ever recorded in California. I would say it must be at least a 7.0 on the Richter scale. Here is a list of significant historical California quakes for comparison

3. Not one person can die as a result of the quake.

4. An actual energy source (not a spiritual energy) must come from the earth as a direct result of the quake and that energy source must be the thing that keeps California out of bankruptcy and brings prosperity back to the nation.

If all these things happen as Clement has predicted I will take down my entire website, issue a personal apology and seek out Clement to beg his forgiveness. But - ALL these things must happen, not just a California earthquake, not just a high magnitude quake, but all four of Clements specific statements must happen for me to pay off.

Given enough time, all false prophets reveal themselves as false. Unfortunately some people are so blind they continue to follow false prophets to their own destruction.

Ezekiel 14:9-10
And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel. And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;
