 Lloyd has been expelled from three churches* whose leaders felt him a threat to their leadership: in January
2001 he is described by the U.S. Chicago Tribune as a "social activist" (as every Christian is in principle); in 2014,
by a security official at South African Revenue Service, Cape Town, as "a white Malema" (trouble-maker); and in
2015, by a High Court Advocate and Professor of law, as "that radical priest"; and, although now retired,
he is still on the ministerial list of the North American Baptist Association.
*Namely:   1. Living Hope Baptist, Rondebosch (end 1991);   2. Salem Full Gospel, Bothasig (November 2010);   3. Linkway Baptist, Edgemead (August 2013).
This identifies the character of leadership, for no church-executive ever has this authority, as the Bible clearly says that authority-to-disassociate lies only with
the Christian ἐκκλησία (congregation) itself, and that even then this is only after the congregation has heard both sides of an apparent problem (Matthew 18:17*).

After 
completing a Diploma in Divinity at Berea in 1967, Lloyd pastors Full Gospel and Baptist churches in South Africa (Elim Full Gospel, Hatfield, Pretoria; and Living Hope Baptist, Rondebosch, Cape Town) while continuing further studies until 1991.
From 1992 he assists the preaching ministry, etc., of a Bothasig Full Gospel pastor (Hensie Vroom) who is suffering from advanced Parkinsons disease.

In 
2006 Lloyd is persuaded to do a preaching tour in northern British Columbia, Canada, and while there he accepts the pastoral call to a Baptist church (Bethel First Baptist, considering closing down) in the strategic port city of Prince Rupert, northern British Columbia. His move there, beginning early 2007, is greatly facilitated by a young medical doctor (Dr. Paul Etheridge) who among other kindnesses prearranges his transport and accommodation.

what we will face in this life.

Emslie Family Tree
 First City Regiment
 served –
1 January 1960 to
31 December 1964.
Placed on reserve
1 January 1965.
Lloyd Emslie Thomas, descended* through his Welsh father (Joseph Reginald Thomas, whose own father had started the first English language Baptist church in North Wales) who was himself descended from Cunedda of post-Roman Britain via Prince Bleddyn ap Cynfyn; and in his mother (daughter of Henry Norman Emslie), with her family crest motto Prenez Garde (always alert) from the Scottish Gordan clan's intermarriage with the Viking/Norse settlement, north of Aberdeen, Scotland, and so accordingly,
his (God-chosen) ancestral DNA does not allow him to be intimidated.
He was raised in an evangelical Christian family of Baptist tradition and began studying Hebrew at age 15.
• At age 17, after a dream of a half-completed tower at a bend in the road, he migrates to a congregation of pentecostal/charismatic experience (Full Gospel Church), and later, after completing his secondary schooling in Grahamstown, South Africa, takes clerical employment in Cape Town, begins teaching Sunday School in a local slum suburb (District Six Coloured suburb) and a Bible study on the life of Jesus exclusively for Muslims, advertised in local mosques, and becomes increasingly involved as a lay-preacher (Observatory, etc..), during which time he completes his compulsory military training and regimental service (Anti-Tank Gunner, First City regiment), following which he then moves on to theological college (Berea, Irene, Pretoria), extra-mural studies (University of South Africa; as an 1989 honours student which ends in him becoming a single-parent in June 1990,
and he remains essentially true to his non-conformist Baptist background.
• During the Cold War, in his compulsory military service, Lloyd suffers unjustified punitive abuse on two occasions from a senior military officer (1. 1960, permanent force officer in Oudtshoorn Infantry Training School; 2. 1964, citizen-force officer, in his last military call-up in Queenstown to assist a police operation as a Russian submarine had reportedly landed a hit-squad on the Transkei coast to assassinate the Kaiser Mathanzima family, Paramount Chief of the Transkei, for cooperation with the Nationalist government). On both of these occasions, the military officer concerned is subsequently suddenly demoted within a few days for a completely unrelated reason,
which thus strengthens Lloyd's conviction that if he 'walks with the Lord' he does not need to 'watch his back'.

"Diploma Divinitatis" 1967
(Berea Theological College)
"Diploma in Theology" 1988
(Baptist Theological College)
• After his military service, while nearing the end of his second year at Berea Theological College, he notices a very depressed state among first year students preparing to write an exam the following day, over the meaning of their study notes. He borrows the subject textbook from the lecturer concerned (Vermeulen) and discovers that the lecturer had misunderstood the textbook in the notes he had given. Lloyd then suggests that the students ask the lecturer to meet with them to sort the misunderstanding, which they do, but he adamantly refuses. The students then decline to write his exam because he refused to meet with them. Lloyd appeals to the principal to intervene but he refuses, and subsequently the students then decide not to attend the lectures of that lecturer and ask Lloyd to represent them.
Unfortunately, Lloyd's attempt at facilitating a resolution to their problem, results in him being seen as the 'instigator'.
The College 

Conflict in his
college years
Board then interviews the student body president (Eddie Kruger, appointed by the faculty) and Lloyd on the crisis, calls together a meeting of all the students, reads to the students a letter of rebuke addressed to Lloyd, and then convenes an election of a new student body president. Lloyd is elected as such, initiates periods of chain-prayer in the College chapel, and is then accused by the College principal of bringing a 'blourokkie-gees' (extreme Pentecostalism) into the College, but the same principal (Dr. Swanepoel) later personally pays for Lloyd's first year of Hellenistic (koine) Greek studies at the University of South Africa.
Toward the 
end of his final year at Berea Theological College, it is announced to the students that the meetings of a newly formed congregation (Elim) in Hatfield, Pretoria (started by Pastor van Heerden, who had now accepted appointment as lecturer in the Chaldo Bible College in Cape Town) would be used for College students to practice their preaching until it dies, as no other pastor was apparently interested in filling its vacancy. Lloyd complains among the students that this is not the way to treat the Lord's people (Elim congregation). Lloyd is therefore summoned to the College office to explain his dissent, and then appointed by Pastor Alec Thompson to be solely responsible for all services of Elim. This is difficult as Lloyd has no transport at the time, so has to beg lifts to the services, and the congregation has no pianist/musician, but he persists and the newly formed church does not die as had been expected.
While 
pastoring this Elim congregation in Pretoria, he develops a close friendship with the Quality Control technician of South Africa's secret nuclear weapons uranium enrichment program (developed by Dr Grant) at South Africa's underground Valindaba facility, and also with an officer of South Africa's intelligence service (then known as Bureau for State Security, later as National Intelligence Service, and now as State Security Agency), both of whom become deacons in his congregation, and in these trusted relationships he becomes aware of national issues of which some government ministers are unaware, at a time in which South Africa is facing the real possibility of Soviet expansion in Southern Africa during the Cold War as the Russian navy cruises its coast.

He becomes
aware of the
nuclear weapons
development program
details, etc....
The weapons-grade uranium enrichment plant at Valindaba, following Dr Grant's methodology, was located underground, between Pretoria and the Hartebeespoort Dam, next to Pelindaba. At Valindaba all buildings were named alphabetically, and the process started from C ending at E, with E being the discharge point where the weapons-grade enriched uranium was secretly loaded at night and sent to America and France.
    South Africa later conducts its own two nuclear test explosions:
1. an underground detonation in the Kalahari desert; and    2. a stratospheric detonation over the Antarctic ocean (September 23, 1979).
The characteristic double-flash of both nuclear explosions is detected by American satellites (Vela high altitude), but South Africa denies both, blaming the first flash on lightening. The second detection is contradicted by America's CIA (working secretly with South Africa) as being a US satellite fault.
Israel had provided the rocket for the Antarctic ocean stratospheric test explosion, which was launched from the southern Cape.
The radiation from this second explosion is picked up in the adrenal glands of sheep in western Australia, for the prevailing wind over the Antarctic ocean is in that direction.
God's faithful 
protection of His people goes far beyond understanding, for Lloyd now takes a week's leave from his pastorate in Pretoria to visit a Christian family (for their encouragement) in Katima Mulilo, Caprivi Strip (Caprivizipfel), on the Zambezi River between Botswana and Zambia, during South Africa's Border War (1966-1989). While there, in their home on the bank of that river, because of the intense heat, Lloyd decides to try and cool off by swimming in the river, not knowing of its crocodiles. He repeatedly swims upstream along the bank of the river (where the flow was slower) and floats downstream in the centre, which is also the border with Zambia (opposite where a Russian insurgent-training base is located), and at one stage, rests, chest deep in the water in a bank of reeds, not knowing that it is the known lair of an eight foot long African crocodile,
but in his complete ignorance nothing touches him.
God's protection
beyond any
understanding.
During 
this time, while holidaying with his family over Christmas in Cape Town, Lloyd reads an article in the Full Gospel Church denominational magazine publicly attacking fellow Full Gospel pastors who believe in the perseverance of the believer as a fruit of spiritual rebirth (some were also Calvinistic in their outlook) rather than as a 'pre-condition' (qualification) for eternal salvation, and having previously heard from his mother-in-law (working as book-keeper in the denominational head-office, Irene) that the Executive of the denomination is planning to change the denomination's doctrinal definition/creed in that regard to ensure continued financial support from its affiliated American 'Church of God', he then decides to write a rebuttal of this public attack and spends some time with his brother-in-law Ellis Andre developing a draft publication entitled "A Certain Security". It is printed in time for the denomination's Easter Convention in Irene at which, to cover its costs, he sells quite a number to interested pastors. He is however therefore labelled as a dissident by a number of influential pastors,
which probably affects his subsequent treatment by that denomination.
Lloyd is
not a Calvinist
but believes in
the 'perseverance
of the saints'
as
the fruit of a
spiritual rebirth.
On a 
trip to visit a missionary friend serving in Lesotho, Lloyd receives an offer from Radio Lesotho for the free use of their back-up transmitter for missionary purposes. He brings the proposal to the Full Gospel Missions Board, for the gospel transmission would reach the whole of the Eastern Cape from the mountains of Lesotho, but the Mission Board shows no interest, probably because the proposal came from Lloyd.

he moves to Pietersburg (now called Polokwane), Limpopo Province, to assist the Bapedi pastors of the Lebowa homeland (and so is necessarily transferred by the Full Gospel Church to their Missions Department, in terms of its Apartheid racial structure at the time).
• Its Mission Board however declines to recognise him/his ministry (although being initially over-joyed that someone was willing to fill the gap among the black churches, according to General Secretary Alex Thompson) because they had not 'budgeted' for him. Lloyd therefore financially supports himself during this time, but they still decline to recognise him, in case he should ever get into financial difficulties and they should then be obligated (according to the Mission Board's representative Pastor Jenkins).
• He therefore takes employment with a major soft-drink bottler (holding most Coca-Cola franchises in the territory from Pretoria to Rhodesia, and from Botswana to the Moçambique border).
• Lloyd nevertheless continues his support for the Bapedi pastors in the area, sometimes preaching in Mahwelereng (near Potgietersrus) over his weekends.
In his capacity 
there (as General Sales Manager), he employs a Portuguese Moçambican as a statistics clerk and then discovers that the said clerk is the secret liaison between information sources within Moçambique and the Rhodesian military during their bush-war, and so becomes necessarily privy to unwritten aspects of that conflict and its Russian involvement, as the liaison also needed special time-off at times during his involvement in Rhodesian military operations against Russian weapons supply to Robert Mugabe's forces attacking Rhodesia from their Moçambique base.

time, the managing director (van Wyk) of his company (Pietersburg Bottling Co.) invites the company's department heads to view a property he had purchased on a hill beside the N1 highway, and one of them cuts a branch from a tree, walks around with it, and then declares a lack of any significant underground water on the property. Lloyd thinks it is a hoax, says so, and is challenged to try it. He feels something, recounts it that weekend to his father-in-law on his farm on the escarpment and is invited to try and find the same place on his farm where a well would have been dug, because the water-dowser had found the strongest stream there, but that it was not done as there was too much rock. He tries and finds the correct place, and then remembers that his mother had mentioned that an uncle of hers had earned his living telling farmers where to dig wells, so concludes it is probably simply a family sensitivity to a magnetic current naturally generated by the underground flow of water and nothing magical.

In Pietersburg during this time, one Thursday night in 1977, while speaking in the kitchen to the Greek owner of a drive-in restaurant, he hears terrible screaming coming from a nearby Black bus-stop, leaps through its serving hatch, runs to it, and finds a stabbed woman lying in a spreading pool of blood. Her assailant had already fled, but Lloyd then seeks and finds him in the dark near the railway station, chases him up an alley and is then himself attacked in attempting to arrest him. So as the assailant stabs at Lloyd, at very close-range he fires at the assailant's thigh (less than 4-inches according to the police) hoping to subdue him, arrests him, and (thinking that he had missed him for there was no external bleeding) he marches him back to the scene of his crime to await the police, and, after having to protect him from a very angry mob for the victim was then still lying in her pool of blood awaiting an ambulance, he hands him to the local police when they eventually arrive. The following morning the police inform Lloyd that, although there was no external bleeding the bullet had actually penetrated his assailant's bladder and ricocheted up off the back of his pelvis through his intestines. The woman's assailant (who was only out of prison ten days) dies in hospital, but she recovers from the multiple stab wounds which he had inflicted.

following year (May 1978) Lloyd is called to Cape Town to pastor a newly forming church, after the pastoral call to him of a local Full Gospel Church (Mountainside Chapel, Cape Town) is blocked by their denominational office, on the inconsistent grounds that Lloyd had been transferred to their Missions department (of the Black churches in terms of its Apartheid structure at the time, according to General Secretary Van Kerken) even though it had completely refused to recognise him in that capacity.
 
See:
Early Cape
Chronology
In the early 1980s 

(while pastoring the Living Hope Baptist Church in Rondebosch, Cape Town) Lloyd is approached by a University of Cape Town faculty member to assist her doctoral study on the application of the spiritual principles (which he was preaching) to her field of occupational therapy. He agrees and begins leading group-therapy in the maximum security forensic ward of a large psychiatric hospital (as it had the most controlled environment for the doctoral study). But, soon after it starts, the initiator is herself offered a more senior position at another university which she accepts. However, the chief psychiatrist (Dr Tuvia Zabo) then asks Lloyd to continue his Nouthetic Counselling group (confronting with responsibility) as his forensic medical team believed that positive results were being obtained, so Lloyd continues and it is then expanded to another secure forensic ward. This involvement with Valkenburg Psychiatric Hospital continues until Lloyd believes he is instructed by God to go to Moçambique in a relief outreach to the people of that country during its violently–cruel* civil war, whereupon he tries unsuccessfully to find a replacement among the local pastors for his group-therapy leading.

had been mashed to pulp
in front of her by Renamo
in an attempt to force her
to give the location of

which she did not know.
 
So in 1984, 
Lloyd becomes involved in a Moçambique relief mission (food and medicine), initiated by a deacon (Pete Norval) and his wife, after South Africa (allied with the West) had earlier that year signed its Nkomati Accord with Moçambique (allied with the Soviet Union). While there, hearing that its central Tete and Gaza provinces were suffering severe drought and famine, and that no other relief agency would risk its personnel in the area because it was in the heart of the violent civil war conflict (between the Soviet supported Frelimo ruling party and Renamo rebels (supplied with weapons by America's CIA from Saudi Arabia via the Comoros / Udzima wa Komori), Lloyd then moves the mission to the Changanini refugee camp in that high-conflict civil-war area.
Because 


In 1986, South Africa assassinates Moçambique President Samora Machel by setting up a false navigation
radio beacon in the Lebombo mountains on its border as
he is flying back to Maputo,
killing all on board.
 
South Africa is colluding with Moçambique's CIA-supported Renamo rebels at this time, Lloyd becomes seen as a South African agent by its Soviet-supported Frelimo government's secret-service agency run by East Germans, so his gracious Maputo host, Albano de Castro, is arrested and placed in solitary confinement, and a government official who had kindly facilitated Lloyd's trips in military transport to Gaza province in Moçambique is fired from his position and so forced to leave Maputo where his son was at university.
However, Moçambique President Samora Machel's gracious wife Garça facilitates the release of Albano. Later, after her husband's murder (by South Africa with a false navigation beacon in the Lebombo mountains when he was flying back to Maputo), she marries Nelson Mandela of South Africa. God, in awesome mercy, arranges that Albano should be appointed as
Moçambique's representative of the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship International and he is flown to the USA to speak at their meetings. On his return, he stops in Cape Town to give testimony to Lloyd's congregation at the time (Living Hope Baptist Church), without a glimmer of resentment that it was his association with Lloyd that had caused his secret-service arrest and his solitary imprisonment.
During 
this time, although taking all necessary precautions, Lloyd contracts malaria and narrowly misses being the target of a Renamo ambush by an RPG7 rocket which kills the occupants of the vehicle rocketed ahead of him, which had only just passed him, but he experiences a number of awesome 'coincidences' of God's provision, even though it puts great strain upon his marriage ("my home is like a railway station" his wife complains) which ends in 1990, but
she grants him sole custody of their children.
On the death 

Childhood
prophetic dream.
of Lloyd's father in January 1991, Lloyd discovers an envelope next to his father's bed titled 'Lloyd's Dream', of which he remembered nothing. It was of his dream at age 8-years which metaphorically describes Lloyd's future call to the Christian ministry and its side-effect on his sister Ruth (today she is married to a Baptist pastor Ellis Andre, who had shared a room at Berea Theological College with Lloyd). That his father had kept this note so carefully beside his bed indicated the seriousness which he attached to it, and this was probably its encouraging purpose, but in August 1991 the Living Hope Baptist church abandons its relationship to Lloyd.
 
From 
January 1992, Lloyd begins teaching adult extra-mural classes at Salem College (Salem Full Gospel Church, Bothasig) while voluntarily supporting the ministry of the local Full Gospel church pastor, and founder of Salem, Hensie Vroom (by preaching, crisis counselling, and conducting his funerals and weddings), who was suffering from increasingly debilitating Parkinsons disease.
 
On July 


Fire-bombing
of PAC offices
planned and
prepared.
25, 1993: On hearing of the vicious Sunday-night massacre at St James' church in Kenilworth, Cape Town (South Africa), with assault rifles and M26 hand-grenades from the platform onto the congregation during their evening service (11 dead and 58 wounded), assessing the terrorists to be from the Pan African Congress (PAC), and knowing that the current South African political negotiations meant that law enforcement would probably not follow up on the attack, Lloyd identifies the headquarters building of the PAC in Woodstock and then prepares to petrol-bomb it to the ground, at 3am, when unoccupied to prevent any casualties, in order to publicly demonstrate the cruel error of their ways.
• But, on reading Ecclesiastes 5:8 in a Bible, lying randomly opened on his table —
"If you see in a province the oppression of the poor and the violation of justice and righteousness,
do not be amazed at the matter, for the high official is watched by a higher, and there are yet higher ones over them
".
— he believes that God is reassuring him, and so he cancels his attack plan and disposes of the incendiary materials he had prepared to completely destroy their head-quarter building in Woodstock as a public statement.

Some victims on the night of the massacre experienced miraculous escapes, and some were sacrificially heroic in their protection of others. One man threw himself onto a hand grenade to protect others around him and lost both his legs. One victim later describes to Lloyd how the doctor explained that a bullet fired at him had followed the contour of his bone, passed safely between two major arteries and stopped with its point resting on a major nerve yet without damaging it.
 
But in 


Assaulted by the
SA Police Service
in Plein Street
outside parliament.
1998 in Cape Town, Lloyd is physically assaulted by a group of uniformed South African police officers in Plein street outside parliament because he lays a complaint against them with a traffic officer, after their police union (SAPU) had illegally closed down public streets (Plein and Roeland streets) in the city centre, seriously disrupting public traffic on a Friday afternoon, as part of an illegal protest by their police union. They surround him, chanting loudly in his face "we've got your name Thomas", which they had read over his shoulder as he entered his complaint on the clipboard of the traffic officer concerned, and as a group they crowd around him and begin violently assaulting him with their elbows and knees. He is rescued by a VIP protection officer attached to parliament who warns him that his assailants are carrying guns and a shot could go off and no one would admit responsibility, but he refuses to leave the area on the basis that his assailants are being paid to protect him.
 
In May 



Lloyd's further
conflict with the
South African Police
2000, deeply disturbed by the ongoing ambushes of Golden Arrow public buses in which a number of drivers are shot dead and passengers wounded, Lloyd obtains the names and personal details of the 15 leaders of the taxi-mafia (joint committee of the Codeta and Cata taxi associations) paying their hit-man (Bandile Botya), and, after personally supplying their full details (including their cell-phone numbers) to the head of police Provincial Crime Intelligence (officer Maree) on Wednesday July 12, and being promised by him a result within two weeks, after no results are obtained and the killing continues, 16-days later Lloyd goes public in calling for his immediate resignation and also that of the Provincial Police Commissioner (Lenit Max), which then leads to the arrest of the hit-man and of his 15-paymasters a day later. However, hit-man Bandile Botya's 15-paymasters are never prosecuted because "their charge sheets were not completed" (stated directly to Lloyd by the hit-man's sentencing magistrate), which implies police corruption.
 

  Lloyd on Facebook   
In January 2001 Lloyd considers it necessary to personally reprimand the head of the Milnerton police station/precinct for their failure to prevent an expected violent xenophobic attack in their Dunoon suburb, on which occasion he meets Paul Salopek of the Chicago Tribune (see above) and brings him an eyewitness of the violent attempted mob-murder and the victim's personal details (which police had claimed not to have).

In preparing to move to the UK, Lloyd sells both his firearms: his 9mm-pistol to a friend, and his .357-magnum revolver to a uniformed police officer in the Milnerton Police station/precinct firearm section, who assures him that they will sort its license transfer. At this stage he still has some trust toward the South African Police Service, but in 2012, after a false accusation of 'pointing a firearm' is laid against him in attempted intimidation by Czarek Rybak (case 419/11/2012, Parow) because he was assisting a young Bulgarian couple whom Rybak was attempting to intimidate (of whom Rybak had assaulted the wife), and he discovers that it is still registered in his own name, which painfully confirms
the practical wisdom of learning to distrust
those bearing public authority.
 
Lloyd moves to the UK (London, and four-years later to Chester) in May 2001 while continuing his historical background research for the Israel TimeLine in the development of this website, and from an Auschwitz survivor he befriends, and the extensive historical resources at London's British museum, at the Louvre in Paris, and in Egypt, among other.
His choice of the eagle icon for this website arose from his time in northern British Columbia, Canada, home of their largest number, and his persuasion that it is only the Biblical perspective that gives the 'big picture' – as an eagle sees over a landscape, and also because an eagle appears on his mother's family coat of arms (Emslie).

London's 7/7
suicide bombings
on public transport
Posing in a display at Madame Tussauds, London
morning, July 4, 2005, in Chester, in the UK , Lloyd is in prayer when he hears God say to him "Your son is in danger".
• It has such an effect that he can do nothing other than intercede in 'tongues'-prayer for his son in London, the whole of the rest of the day and into that night. The following morning, as he still continues in intercessory prayer, he hears God say to him "Your son is safe".
• Two days later, on Thursday morning July 7 (08h49), three suicide bombers very cruelly explode their bombs in rapid succession on London underground trains, and later a fourth on a London public bus, killing 52 people and wounding more than 700. Lloyd is convinced that God caused the plans of the suicide bombers to change on that Tuesday morning July 5, 2005, which among other prevented the death of his only son.
In September 2005

"I took this wild stag photo one morning outside my front door. He looked at me as though he had been waiting for me."
In Prince Rupert, Lloyd is approached by two leaders in the local First Nations (Indigenous/Native American) community to create a subsection of his website to list unresolved crimes, because they believe it reflected a subtle racial discrimination. He agrees on condition they form a committee with him for that purpose, but later after receiving an emailed threat on behalf of Akuna Tri Nguyen, whose name he had listed, removes their names for their own safety.
 he returns to Cape Town, South Africa , but in October 2006 on a preaching tour in British Columbia, Canada , he is persuaded to accept the pastorate of a local Baptist church (Bethel First Baptist) in the port of Prince Rupert, in northern British Columbia (just south of Alaska), to which he then moves in January 2007 and serves there until February 2009.
While in Prince Rupert, he is addressed late one Wednesday night (October 17, 2007)
by an emphatic voice in his bedroom, which awakens him three times with the same statement:
"There were unclean animals in the Ark as well as clean" concerning the extent of Noah's responsibility.
 In the morning, he concludes that he must therefore treat those in the town, outside of his own pastoral fold (the "clean"), with equal concern for their welfare, which then leads him among other to involvement with the victims of crime in the community and related justice issues, including his exposure of on-going drug-related criminal activities (particularly international heroine-smuggling).
The long-term consequence of this is reflected in the two subsections of this website: regarding –
British Columbia (Canada ), top-left of homepage; and the Western Cape (South Africa Citizen of South Africa), top-right of homepage.
The local Roman Catholic priest, concerned at what he was hearing about Lloyd in the town, kindly makes a coffee-date with Lloyd to encourage him to restrict himself to his "religious calling". Lloyd however tries to explain that this is not what the Lord wants of him. Lloyd nevertheless continues to enjoy full ongoing support from that priest in his activities in the town.
• 
In London, UK, the Metropolitan police had warned him that if the information with which he was supplying them becomes known... [see Bollo Lane],
• 
In Canada he is warned by an ex-drug-dealer "Are you packing? I can get you one. You need one [a gun]. HA [Hells Angels] are talking about you...". He declines his offer, but the ex-drug-smuggler (who used to smuggle cocaine into Canada from Ecuador) then becomes his friend.
• 
Later in Cape Town, South Africa, a reserve officer in military intelligence warns him –
"You need to watch your back. One of them [corrupt police officers he had informed on] might try to get even".
Accordingly, he is careful, but believes that he can trust the Lord to do what he cannot do.
Lighthouse
Harbour Ministries

Prince Rupert, BC, Canada

During
 this time in Prince Rupert, northern BC, in view of the rapid development of the port and its strategic location, Lloyd facilitates the development of a non-denominational Christian ministry to the crews of visiting ships (Lighthouse Harbour Ministries), some from countries where the Christian gospel is banned, and so receives encouraging support from the local Port Authority and some dedicated individuals from various churches in this strategic port city.
But in November 
2008, while deep in prayer he is addressed by God that the local church leaders are not hearing him, and that –
no matter how long he stays in Prince Rupert that problem will not change.
So accordingly, he issues them with a two-month resignation-notice to leave at the beginning of February 2009
(but asks that it be kept confidential until after the Christmas period so as not to cause any discouragement).
 
Sadly some members of the church diaconate had seemed to see their function as that of a 'board of directors' as of a 'business' enterprise, which had employed a 'pastor' for specific duties, and he was thus simply accountable to them, rather than the Biblical perspective — that their function existed as a supportive-role to the congregational-direction set by his pastoral oversight, and so he was not regarded by them a shepherd-leader in any Biblical sense. So, during his notice-period this Church Council/Diaconate then begin holding their meetings without even notifying Lloyd so as to exclude him, thereby verifying that he had been regarded by them as nothing more than an 'employee'. One of the deacons attending tearfully informs Lloyd during this time that the principal complaint against him by the other leaders is that the significant increase in Christian conversions, baptisms, and membership had not been equally matched by an increase in church income.
Very sadly, the Lord's warning proves to be true, and so, some time after his departure, the church closes down.
In May 2010 


Lloyd's further
conflict with
the SA police


In November 2012 Lloyd's home is raided and seached without a search warrant by the South African Police, who also attempt to arrest him on a false charge. He lays a complaint against the
Parow police officers, which contributes to the
arrest of some officers.
in Cape Town, South Africa, Lloyd is approached by the owners of a second-hand store in the N1 City shopping mall, as their store had been hijacked while they were away over a weekend. He obtains all details of the criminal syndicate involved (see their leaders) and consults the police Provincial Organised Crime unit, but they refuse to become involved on the grounds that the police Provincial Crime Intelligence is monitoring the store high-jacking as they believed it is to be used as a "front" for an al-Qa'eda terror attack during the coming World Cup in Cape Town.
• However, Lloyd's analysis of the syndicate personnel (including the Subhanni criminal syndicate’s Pakistan-connected money-laundering for al-Qa'eda) does not agree, and so he personally takes the legitimate store owners to Shopright-Checkers Property Division (in Brackenfell), who own the shopping mall, and, with difficulty, eventually persuades them to fax written authorization to change the store door-locks after hours (for otherwise the shopping mall security would regard the lock-change as an attempted break-in).

Goodwood, Cape Town
for which Provincial Police Organised Crime Unit
refuses to intervene.



That evening then, a hired locksmith picks and changes the store locks, after Lloyd confirms departure of the criminal syndicate, and the following morning Lloyd informs the head of the Goodwood police (as it was within their district). However, the Subhanni criminal syndicate produce a falsified deed of sale (created with help of SA police Commercial Crime unit officer, Captain Erasmus), call the Goodwood police to lay a theft complaint against the legitimate owners, and then two groups of police officers face-off each other at the store and attempt to seal it as a crime scene.
The criminal syndicate eventually then decides to withdraw, but as nothing is ever done by the police concerning them, Lloyd later publishes the personal names and addresses of their leaders on this website.
Lloyd later 

approaches the U.S. consulate in Tokai, Cape Town, with all of the Pakistani-syndicate's personal details, and its al-Qa'eda related information (including cell phone numbers, vehicle registration numbers, and their home addresses),
and gives it to a very unappreciative local American CIA officer Thomas Murray.

America's CIA
In early 2016, when lodging a complaint at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague (Den Haag), The Netherlands, against President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation, for his international assassinations, Lloyd also visits the underground archaeological excavations of the Roman Empire's border fort, in Utrecht, for a better understanding of that particular time period . . .

Lloyd's abiding passion has been to understand the Bible in its own context, as its first readers did, and so ancient history has been a continuing interest.
Accordingly, the only ultimate authority for him is the Holy Spirit whose basic directions are given in the Bible's words and perspectives,
against which every understanding of His directions today must be measured — for the Spirit of God is consistent.
In view of this,  his pivotal persuasion is — 
the unfading dynamic of God's infinite affection — and His awesome purpose for humanity!
In consequence, 
the effective identity of every authentic Christian, which was described metaphorically by the Lord Jesus as —
the  "light of the world"  and the 
"salt of the earth"
 (Matthew 5:13-14),
has become a profound conviction concerning Christian conduct on social and moral issues of human society in general, and of justice in particular.
On this therefore, 
he believes that Christ's salt and light comments about the influence of believers in this world —
do not mean adding 'flavour' to human society, or changing the 'hue' of this world, as some foolishly claim,
 but that, within their own context, Christ's words have specific reference to —
See: Common
 'Christian' Fallacies 
  stopping corruption ("salt") and exposing evil ("light")
in order to publicly show the way forward for all humanity,
regardless of creed or culture, in all places and at all times.

Hence, he believes  that the New Testament's summary statement of Christ's coming is therefore also applicable today, namely that —
 
 “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil” 
 1 John 3:8
  But Lloyd Thomas also has his detractors, concerning which the Lord Jesus stated two significant principles for our understanding today
1. (as recorded in Matthew 13:57)   2. (as recorded in Luke 6:44)
"...they were offended in Him.
But Jesus said unto them, a prophet is not without honour,
except in his own country, and in his own house"
& "...every tree is known by his own fruit.
For of thorns men do not gather figs,
 nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
"
Sadly, in our world familiarity does tend to breed contempt...   Meaning: his direct influence/effect, and not the stories about him...
SO THE ENEMY OF TRUTH IS NOT IGNORANCE  —  IT IS THE ILLUSION OF 'KNOWLEDGE'
 
See:
'Local Popes': a
Diotrephës-Effect

A Diotrephës-effect
is a symptom of
leader insecurity,
resulting in a

It would be good for
these persons to be
reminded that Christ
has only ONE church,
within which
spiritual divisions
are not permissible.

To their friends, please note: Lloyd accommodates neither hypocrisy nor disrespect (Titus 2:15).
Some Slanderers. quoted against him in this regard, include Messrs —
   1. Steve Walsh;    
2. Andre Pienaar;    
3. *Paul van der Merwe;  
   
4. *Gavin van Heerden.
In 1 and 2 above, much hurt was caused to many by their spreading of a very one-sided,
less than honest, story, which sadly resulted in the total termination of any relationship
to Lloyd, even wiping clean all recordings of his church teaching and preaching. For those
persons not knowing the context, such a reaction to their 'story' is very understandable,
but, sadly, for their leaders in the circumstance to not do so, is certainly not, as the
congregational abandonment
of disabled quadriplegic Eloff Germishuys then showed!
Concerning misrepresentation, of which there has been considerable (by 3 & 4), the
Lord does not allow passivity, even if more convenient, for the Bible commands

"...do not let your good be spoken evil of." (Romans 14:16),
so in this regard then, the above listing of these hostiles and the Bible's statement in 2 Timothy 4:14 is enough.
 "THE EARTH  IS  THE  LORD'S  AND  THE FULLNESS  THEREOF"
While Nelson Mandela was incarcerated in Robben Island prison, he found inspiration in Table Mountain:
"We often looked across Table Bay at the magnificent silhouette of Table Mountain... To us on Robben Island, Table Mountain
was a beacon of hope. It represented the mainland to which we knew we would one day return"
he said in a speech, ...and he did...

THESE MALFUNCTIONS OF ADMINISTRATIVE STANDARDS IN STATE HOSPITALS, BELOW, MAY ALSO INDICATE THE GENERAL DIRECTION IN GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION
A newspaper headline in The New Age newspaper (28 July 2015) reads: "Woman dies after being awakened naked by laughing porters" in Mitchells Plain Hospital (1).
Addington Hospital (2) in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal,
admits a patient who has suffered a stroke and is
unable to walk, but because no lifts are working
through lack of maintenance he has to crawl
up the narrow stairs on his hands and
knees
to get to a ward.

(Reported by a patient 22 June 2015)

Two patients die in intensive care
(Thursday 18 June 2015) in
Letaba Hospital (4) near Tzaneen
during Eskom's load-shedding
because the hospital's generator
had run out of diesel fuel
due to lack of maintenance.

SO A CAUTION
For those with children
in South Africa who are
  concerned about their future:  
I estimate that, IF the
current rate of deterioration
in public administration
continues, you have about
eight years to save for
an evacuation, and if you
can open an off-shore
account in the meantime
it is to your advantage.
