God’s Word clearly identifies false prophets as those that declare they’ve received dreams from God and prophesy lies:
“I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in my name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ How long shall there be lies in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, and who prophesy the deceit of their own heart, who think to make my people forget my name by their dreams that they tell one another, even as their fathers forgot my name for Baal? Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let him who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? declares the Lord. Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, declares the Lord, who steal my words from one another. Behold, I am against the prophets, declares the Lord, who use their tongues and declare, ‘declares the Lord.’ Behold, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, declares the Lord, and who tell them and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them. So they do not profit this people at all, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 23:25-32
Once again we see Phil Pringle promoting his yearly New Years ‘Dream Service’ on social media:
“So looking forward to bringing this ‘word’ I am feeling so strongly for 2019 for our people and guests in our Dream Service New Years Eve @c3oxfordfalls. ‘It’s beginning to rain’. Don’t miss this! #bringyourpeople Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.”

Like all false prophets, Pringle implies that God is using him to bring a ‘word’ during C3’s New Year’s Eve ‘Dream Service’. And he proves he is a false prophet, showing off his NAR/Latter Rain cultic roots by announcing, ‘It’s beginning to rain’.
This is the same man who has been proven time and time again to prophesy falsely. Phil Pringle and his followers still have no answer for the false prophecies and bad leadership Pringle gave over Kong Hee, which landed Kong in jail. This is the same Phil Pringle who revamped his false prophecies on 9/11, the Warragambah Dam revival and prophesied falsely over New Zealand and India.
On the topic of dreams, for over half a decade Pringle adamantly claimed that God gave him the 2020 vision, a prophecy that was to be fulfilled in 2020 where Pringle’s C3 movement would have 1000 churches with an average membership of 500 people. On their C3 Church Global page, they still make this statement:
“With over 500 churches in 64 countries, we are rapidly moving towards the 2020 Vision of 1,000 Locations planted by the year 2020.”

Back in 2012/13, C3 announced they had 400 churches with a new church being made daily. Compare those figures to their having only 500 churches coming into 2019 and that seems to suggest their ‘growth’ is far from being ‘rapid’. The next twelve months leading up to 2020 will be interesting – shall we see the NAR ‘god’ come through for Phil Pringle? Will there be 500 more C3 churches established? Or instead, will we finally see repentant C3 pastors withdraw their allegiance to this false prophet and his movement and instead declare God’s Word faithfully, with the Bible being their standard for truth and the complete revelation that God has already given.
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1
