From our ChurchWatch Central site:
How can we recognize false prophets unless we judge them by the Word of God?
How can we turn away from them if we do not identify them?
It is written,
“But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.” Deuteronomy 18:20-22
“For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24
At C3 Presence Conference 2011, Phil Pringle, (with great prophetic boldness), proclaimed Kong Hee would not spend one night “behind bars”…..
“Amen, Father. Here right now. Father in heaven, deliverance is theirs. [Chris Pringle: “Yes!”] You’ve circled us with songs of deliverance. You’ve turned our mourning into dancing. The oil of just- the feelings of despair, the ashes are replaced with the oil of joy. What a victory this will be. Though it’s dragged on, it’s only for a greater rope to hang the devil by. In Jesus name, Father we pronounce victory. [Crowd cheers]. We pronounce [Chris Pringle: “Yes!”] conquering. WE PRONOUNCE DELIVERANCE IN JESUS NAME. NOT ONE NIGHT WILL THIS FAIR HEAD SPEND BEHIND BARS. LORD GOD YOUR NAME IS EXALTED. YOU WILL GLORIFY THE NAME OF JESUS to this great man and his wife and that awesome church that they have built by the power of God and in the name of Jesus.
So here tonight Father, all of us stand together as the body of Christ, as the Kingdom of God. We can invoke things on this earth in that name above every other name. We have a power. We declare it in Jesus name.
SALVATION! VICTORY AND DELIVERANCE! In Jesus mighty name! Hahaha! Oh bless him! The blessings in heaven, bessings of the mountains, blessings of the hills, blessings of the valleys, blessings of the city, blessings of the country, blessings of the people, blessings of the nations – rest upon you. You’ll speak to those who sit on thrones. You’ll stand before those who command the affairs of men. You’ll speak from a broken heart and win those who are proud and they will break and kneel before you. And those who’ve attacked you will be at your feet, seeking forgiveness. And you will show the grace of God and the hand of Heaven and the reconciliation of the Spirit of the Lord.
“Kings will come to Christ. Men who have opposed with their proud mind the things of God will be bent towards God, blown by a wind greater than themselves. God is raising you up. Once you have come through this, you’ll stand and strengthen the church.
Not only in Singapore, not only in Asia but through-out the world,” says the Lord. “You’ll strengthen the hearts of pastors everywhere, prophets everywhere, apostles everywhere, preachers, evangelists.”
So bless this man Lord. As he builds a massive bridge into China, that nation will come to Christ. The price of China is being paid in your world right now. An anointing for a nation yet to come to Christ. Jesus!
CHINA! TURN! And oil, none other has carried, will be placed upon you that you will share with many thousands of evangelists [that] will travel to the nation of China, like messengers carrying the message of the king – and that I will put the trumpet to your lips. You will grow an army. A vast army will gather.
“Your hour is yet to come,” says the Lord, “But I will bless you in Jesus name”. [Source]
How should members of C3 Oxford Falls (and their many satellite churches around the world) react to the false prophecy given by Phil Pringle in their 2011 Presence Conference?
How long will the C3 congregations continue to allow Phil Pringle to oversee their movement when God’s Word clearly identifies him as a false prophet?
A true Christian is a person who has put their faith and trust in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Sadly, it seems many people attending C3 have put put their “faith and trust” in the ministry of a false prophet. Based on Jesus’ own words, do we have the right to question the faith that these attendees confess to have in Jesus?
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you… Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” John 14:15-17, 21
We ask C3 members who may be reading this, who do you love more? Who do you really follow?
Jesus or Phil Pringle?
“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed.” 2 Peter 2:1-2
The Strait Times reports:
SINGAPORE – City Harvest Church (CHC) founder Kong Hee was the first of five church leaders convicted of misappropriating millions from the church’s funds to arrive at the State Courts on Friday (April 21) to surrender himself and begin his jail term.
Kong, 52, was flanked by two men as he entered the State Courts building at around 8.30am as it rained outside. He will be jailed for 3½ years, the longest sentence of the convicted church leaders.
