The Meaning of Kim Clement’s Name
I had a vision of burning bushes; little fires all over the world. I was looking from what was an aerial view of the world – and everywhere these burning bushes or little fires were steadily burning bright. Suddenly and without warning, they increased exponentially – they doubled, tripled and even quadrupled in size as if gasoline was flung on them. They burned a deep halcyon, like gold.
I asked the Lord what was the meaning of this vision? He replied, “KIM.”
The name Kim in Korean where it has been most popularized means, “metal, iron or gold.” It’s also defined in the old English as “chief” or “leader.” This Scripture followed: “That the proof of your faith, which is more precious than gold that perishes even though it is tested by fire, may be found to result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ…” (1 Peter 1:7).
Interestingly enough the word “gold” in this text starts with a K, “Khroo-see’-on.” It means, among other things – “refined by fire.” The passing of our brother Kim Clement is a “trying of our faith” that will surely produce a far greater faith in Jesus Christ. It’s equally a season that we will be “tested by fire” but it will prove to be greatly beneficial and far reaching.
Like the seed that falls to the ground and dies – it will increase exponentially in all of the world like those burning bushes. It will sharpen us as “iron sharpens iron” and it will be a “Refiner’s fire” – that will exponentially stir people deeply to have a greater “testimony of Jesus” – which “is the spirit of prophecy…” (Revelation 19:10).
Clement in Hebrew is also Chana which means “favor and grace.” It is also found in Philippians 4:3 which comments on a companion and co-laborer of Paul the Apostle and in the Latin it means, “merciful.” The passing of Kim Clement from this earthly realm is a true sign-post, a mile marker, a spiritual furlough of God’s mercy, grace and favor that is presently extended to the world. A grace and favor to have a much more luminous, powerful and far reaching testimony of Jesus Christ to a widely unsaved world.
An occasion of great mercy is now upon us to reconcile “the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers…” It also points to a season of purifying and cleansing of our faith like “fullers soap and Refiner’s fire” as we read in Malachi 3:2. A purification of our faith in Jesus Christ which will inevitably produce a far greater testimony and a faith much needed in these “latter days.”
The passing of Kim Clement into eternity marks a autumn of grace, favor and mercy wherein, like the tree in Psalm 1 will “yield its fruit in season and whose leaf will not wither and they prosper in all they do…” A grace, favor and mercy that will give accessibility to prosper in all that we put our hand to for the Kingdom of God.
Kim was a Leader and Chief in the Spirit of Prophecy
Kim is not only a “leader” and “chief” that stirred our testimony of Jesus Christ through the Spirit of Prophecy in life – but will be exponentially quantified in death. “The Spirit of Prophecy,” to reveal Jesus Christ to a disconnected and disenfranchised world will be broadened and lengthened like Isaiah 54:2: “Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords And strengthen your pegs.”
If Kim’s life epitomized anything it was a life that “spared not…” He did it with all of his heart and strength and now their is a clear and clarion sound in the “mulberry trees” inciting us all to new heights of faith ( see 2 Samuel 5:24). The word “mulberry” is derived from the Hebrew word “baw-kaw” which means to weep bitterly. We will surely mourn but soon the Lord will give us “beauty for ashes” and we will enter in and surely experience one of the grandest and most powerful seasons in history.
The “metal” or gold of our faith is being perfected and the Refiner’s fire is having its divine effect on our faith. Favor, mercy and grace will accentuate this rapidly changing season catapulting us into the rarefied air of new inspiration. “The kernel of wheat” that has suddenly fallen to the ground and died will produce a vast and immense harvest – countless souls that will hear the undeniable, unquenchable, unchanging testimony of Jesus Christ. This, is fruit that remains.

After 15+ years as a prophetic voice to the nations and a full-time minister on television, radio and conferences, his passion and attention is often found elsewhere; with the broken, bedraggled, and unreached masses that are yet to be touched with the matchless love of Jesus. Chad has been called Prophet, Evangelist and a modern-day Revivalist but you will most likely find Chad under a bridge, a street corner and an inner-city basketball court than the meeting hall and if you’re in his company long enough you will be as well!
