 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.

This identifies the character of leadership, for no church-executive ever has this authority, for the Bible clearly says that authority-to-disassociate lies only with the
Christian ἐκκλησία (the congregation itself), and that even then this is only after the congregation has heard both sides of an apparent problem (Matthew 18:17*).
Whoever demolishes a Christian fellowship, the congregation/the Holy Spirit's temple, radically shortens his own lifespan (1 Corinthians 3:17).

Emslie Thomas, is descended* through his Welsh father (Joseph Reginald Thomas, whose own father had started the first English language Baptist church in North Wales: Mount Pleasant Baptist Chapel, Johnstown) of the lineage of Cunedda of post-Roman Britain via Cynfyn ap Gwerystan (king of Powys in north Wales);
and through his mother (Olive Gertrude, daughter of Henry Norman Emslie, with her family crest motto Prenez Garde, 'always alert') apparently from the Gordon clan's intermarriage with the Viking/Norse settlement on the coast of Scotland, north of Aberdeen, and so his (God-chosen) ancestral DNA prevents him from being intimidated.
He was raised in an evangelical Christian family of Baptist tradition and began studying Hebrew at age 15.
• At age nine in Durban, South Africa, Lloyd, suffering with pains in his legs (described by local doctors simply as 'growing-pains') he is diagnosed by a Dr Korsten as having seriously advanced Bilharzia (Schistosomiasis) which requires a course of 21-day adult-dose injections because the parasitic worms are eating his liver and their microscopic eggs appear in his urine. After termination of the Bilharzia parasitic infection, the side effect of the medication causes him to break out in boils all over his torso (32 at one time), which nothing seems to stop, and so arrives with his family in North Wales to meet his father’s family in that condition. Soon thereafter one morning at breakfast his father announces a repeated dream of the name Blaenau Ffestiniog, identifies it as a small village high in the mountains of Wales, and so takes the family there for a weekend, believing it to be God's guidance. All Lloyd's boils immediately dry up, so
he suspects that his metabolism needed something in the water of that town (its water ran through slate quarries),
of which only God knew.
• 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 (Grahamstown Full Gospel Church), and later, after completing his secondary schooling, he moves to Cape Town with Pastor EJ Thompson, takes clerical employment, begins teaching Sunday School in a local slum suburb (District Six Coloured suburb) and, on-request, a Bible study on the life of Jesus exclusively for Muslims, advertised in the local mosques, and becomes increasingly involved as a lay-preacher (in Observatory, etc..). But, Pastor EJ Thompson, who had started the Full Gospel Church in Cape Town city, is instructed by the Full Gospel District Superintendent (Jenkins) that the church congregation must be racially divided according to South African Government Apartheid practice.
He refuses to conform to racial segregation and so pastor Thompson's Christian ministry then becomes independent.
• During the Cold War, in his compulsory military service, Lloyd suffers unjustified punitive abuse on two occasions from a military officer –
1. 1960, from a permanent force military officer (instructor), verbal, in the Oudtshoorn Infantry Training School;
2. 1964, from a regimental officer (sergeant-major) assault, in his last military call-up (to 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 Xhosa, for cooperation with South Africa's 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'.
• After Lloyd completes his compulsory military training and regimental service (Anti-Tank Gunner, First City regiment), he moves on to theological college (Berea Theological College of the Full Gospel Church, Irene, Pretoria), and later while pastoring Elim, Pretoria, to extra-mural studies (University of South Africa; and later, while pastoring a church in Cape Town subsequently as an honours student, which studies then unexpectedly end when he becomes a single-parent on the sudden departure of his wife on Saturday morning June 2, 1990),
and he remains essentially true to his non-conformist Baptist background.
In 1965, toward 
the end of his first year at Berea Theological College, the second year students take the final year students out to a farewell supper, and secretly ask the first-year-students to apply itching and sneezing powder to the final year students clothes and accessories as a prank, while they are out. Lloyd thinks this is very unfair during a farewell supper and that it should be more justly applied to those who planned the prank. Others follow his lead which leads to a late night clash when the second-year students return to their sleeping quarters and find them sabotaged with the materials they had themselves supplied.
While nearing 

the end of his second year at Berea Theological College, Lloyd 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 (Dr. Swanepoel) 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 interviews both the student body president (non-resident Eddie Kruger, appointed by the faculty) and Lloyd on the crisis, then calls together a meeting of all the students in the College chapel, reads to the students a letter of rebuke addressed personally 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.
College Magazine
this time at Berea Theological College (1967), Lloyd assists Ken Wooldridge to begin a College magazine and chooses its name Dunamis, being the New Testament Greek word for the effect in the believer of the Holy Spirit given to all believers on the Day of Pentecost.
The following year he is asked by the new editor Gert Horak to assist with putting together its second edition.
Toward the end 

"Diploma Divinitatis" 1967
(Berea Theological College)
"Diploma in Theology" 1988
(Baptist Theological College)
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 the dean of men (Pastor Alec Thompson, brother of EJ Thompson) to be solely responsible for all services of Elim church. 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.
At one stage in these early years, his month's salary is R40 (ZAR), but he persists.
The Full Gospel district superintendent (de Bruin) believed there was no future for an English language church in Pretoria, so, after Pastor van Heerden leaves, the District Council also ends their subsidy of its hall rental, without even informing Lloyd who was now conducting its services there.
pastoring this Elim congregation in Pretoria, he develops a close friendship with the Quality Control technician ('Shorty' van Heerden) of South Africa's nuclear weapons uranium enrichment program (developed by Dr Grant) at South Africa's secret underground Valindaba facility, and also with an officer of South Africa's intelligence service (Dr C Reynolds), then known as Bureau for State Security (later as National Intelligence Service, and now as State Security Agency) both of whom become valued deacons in his congregation and personal friends, 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
program details,
The secret under-ground weapons-grade uranium enrichment plant at Valindaba (following Dr Grant's methodology) was located 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 to 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 own 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 is launched from the southern Cape,
as South Africa is manufacturing weapons for Israel and supplying uranium for their nuclear weapons development (see: Dimona).
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.
In his capacity 

Lloyd's Filioque Clause
heresy paper on the error

in the Full Gospel Church's
Doctrinal Definition
in its Constitution!
as pastor of the Full Gospel Elim church in Hatfield, Pretoria, Lloyd writes to the Executive Council of the Full Gospel Church of God denomination, to point out to them a significant error in their Constitutional doctrinal definition regarding the Trinity of God, which describes the Holy Spirit as "proceeding" from the Father "and the Son" (which in Christian Church history is known as the Filioque clause). The term "proceeds" as Jesus had used it (John 15:26) had been historically misinterpreted in a Greek philosophical context as meaning 'to exude' (as if referring to the source of existence), and so both sides of the argument (whether of single or double 'procession'), which divided Eastern Orthodoxy from Catholic/Papal Christianity, were wrong on the same issue, for it was simply Christ's reference to the coming change in the spiritual leadership authority of the believers, after His Ascension, from Himself to the Spirit of God, who would then come to them in this new relationship at Pentecost.
Christ's words in John 15:26 about the Holy Spirit (which is the basis of the concept) that He "proceeds", refers to the authority of the Spirit and NOT to His origin or to His personal relationship to God the Father.

Executive Council
Lloyd is interviewed by the full Denominational Executive Council at their Irene head-office, where he presents a paper to them on the issue (available via link in left margin above) and, because he does not push them for a doctrinal correction to the published Church Constitution (on the ground of its unnecessary expense, for generally most in the pastoral ministry are not aware of this error or even of its significance), they thank him for his "maturity' (by moderator/chairman Dr Swanepoel). Lloyd explains that he had raised the doctrinal issue as a matter of conscience for at his ministerial ordination he had agreed to the doctrinal statement of the Constitution before discovering its error. The Secretary General (Alex Thompson) subsequently writes to him (February 4, 1972) thanking him for "his maturity" –
really, because he did not press them to do anything about it.
God's faithful 
protection of those who trust Him 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 dangerous crocodiles. He repeatedly swims upstream along the bank of the river (where the stream flow is slower) and then 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.
He later hears that even runners along the bank of the river had sometimes been snatched by its crocodiles.
God's protection
given beyond any
During this 
time, while holidaying with his family over Christmas in Cape Town (where his parents lived), 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 (believing
in Limited Atonement)
but believes in the
of the saints'

as the FRUIT of
spiritual rebirth
and not in any sense
as a qualification to
merit salvation.
Lloyd is 
later accused of contentiously handing out copies of the Certain Security booklet to dispute the Executive's proposed doctrinal definition change to the Full Gospel Church of God statement of faith, but this was not true, for Lloyd had avoided being provocative, but some who purchased copies may have done so in all sincerity for open discussion.
(For instance, Pastor Gert Horak of the Bloemfontein church purchased 50-copies at the time).
Also, 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 from Lesotho would reach the whole of the Eastern Cape,
but the Mission Board shows no interest, probably because the proposal had come from Lloyd.
In this time 
in Pretoria, Lloyd is asked to invigilate the exams of seriously disabled students (including quadriplegics) at the University of South Africa's (Unisa) department of theology. Probably because of his continued enrolment at Unisa as a stimulant to further study and to enable his attendance at their vacation school lectures, where he could discuss issues with their teaching staff.

believes he is instructed by God to leave the Elim congregation as an act of faith, initially not knowing where to go, and he then 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 of God executive council to their Missions Department, in terms of the church's Apartheid racial structure at the time). But disappointingly, during his resignation notice period from the Elim Church in Hatfield, Pretoria, the Full Gospel District Superintendent personally meets with its Church Council to directly verify all names on the membership register as being authentic and personally known to them, and then also that the financial records of the church are accurate, as if looking for something negative to explain Lloyd's unexpected resignation from the pastorate of a growing congregation.
• Its Mission Board however also declines to recognise him/his ministry (although being initially over-joyed that someone was willing to fill the gap among the black churches in Lebowa, 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, Fanta, and Appletiser franchises in the territory from Pretoria to Rhodesia, and from Botswana to the Moçambique border) as their warehouse Administration Manager.
• Lloyd nevertheless continues his support for the Bapedi pastors in the area, sometimes preaching in Mahwelereng (near Potgietersrus) over his weekends, and providing a special Bible study for their church leaders, for in just over a month, after starting his secular employment as Warehouse Administration Manager, he is promoted to their General Sales Manager
which frees him from being necessarily in-office and gives him a company car with a unrestricted fuel allowance
enabling him to do what he believes the Lord wants him to do in the Black homeland of Lebowa, etc.

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.
Discovers a
One Saturday morning in the Pietersburg town-centre, he notices a young black man running unusually fast up the sidewalk, turns to watch from where he had run, and sees a group of black people looking up from the bottom of the street. So he turns his car and drives down to them. They explain that they were waiting for a bus when a young man grabbed an elderly man's bag containing his month's salary and ran off with it. So Lloyd drives in the direction of the thief, who seeing him following, dives into a local black restaurant. So Lloyd swings his car onto the sidewalk to block entrance to the restaurant, but as he opens the door the thief jumps over the car, runs across the street and up an alley. Lloyd chases and catches up with him, and then sees he has no bag, so turns and retraces his run and finds the bag thrown over a wall under a bush, retrieves it and returns it to its owner to the joyful hand-clapping of the black bus queue.

In this time, Lloyd is persuaded to attended a gymnastics judging course by the gymnastics tutor of his niece (Mariaan Sadler. now Hoolsema) who is living with them at the time before being placed in a boarding-school, as her family had moved out of town, and so for purely educational reasons he qualifies as a provincial gymnastics judge.

Also in 
Pietersburg, 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 the serving hatch, runs to it, and finds a woman with multiple stab-wounds lying in a spreading pool of blood. Her assailant had already fled, but Lloyd then seeks him in the dark and finds him 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, he fires at the assailant's thigh at very close-range (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. When his resignation becomes known to his staff at Pietersburg Bottling Co., his black area manager, Chaplain Pasha (also a local lay preacher), expresses his profound disappointment, so Lloyd prays with him in the company office and Pasha is filled with the Holy Spirit and begins speaking in 'tongues'.
This gives Lloyd some reassurance that the effect of his ministry to the Bapedi people would continue in some way.
Lloyd moves
to Cape Town
Early Cape
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.

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.

In 1986, the South African government 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.
Africa is secretly colluding with Moçambique's CIA-supported Renamo rebels at this time during the Cold War, Lloyd also becomes seen by its Soviet-supported Frelimo government's secret-service agency run by East Germany as a South African agent, 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 Russian military transport to Gaza province in Moçambique, is fired from his government position and so forced to leave Maputo where his son was at university.
However, Moçambique President Samora Machel's gracious wife Garça then facilitates the release of Albano. Later, after her own husband's murder (by South African agents with a false navigation beacon in the Lebombo mountains when he was flying back to Maputo), she marries Nelson Mandela of post-Apartheid South Africa. God then, 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 that time (Living Hope Baptist Church), without a glimmer of any resentment that it was his direct association with Lloyd which had triggered his own arrest and imprisonment by Moçambique's East-German run security service.
In about 1987
before his wife's departure (in 1990), while resident with his family above the church office in Milner Road, Rondebosch, at about 2:00 am in the morning, Lloyd sees two men with balaclavas over their heads spray-painting what pretends to be a political slogan that was turned into a racist joke, mocking ANC leader Mandela, on a private wall in Park Road facing into its intersection with Milner Road. He gives chase, but they, seeing him coming, jump into their white unmarked car but with SA police force number plates (beginning and ending with B) and speed off. Lloyd runs to his car and drives after them, but they escape.
This underhand political act begins his growing disenchantment with the South African Police Service, which continues.

On the death 
prophetic dream.
It is important to remember regarding the action taken against Lloyd that sincerity (Steve Walsh's justification) does not make any action 'right'. The long-term consequence of an action determines its 'right' or
(Proverbs 14:12).
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 his father's record of Lloyd's 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 minister Rev. Ellis Andre, who had shared a room with Lloyd at Berea Theological College). That his father had kept this note so carefully beside his bed indicates the seriousness reassurance which he attached to it, and this was probably its encouraging purpose to him, but –
in August 1991 the Living Hope Baptist church completely abandons Lloyd
on the basis of a contrived accusation of immorality by Jo-Anne and Andre Pienaar.
If the action of its Church Council in expelling Lloyd had borne the blessing of God
that church would not have eventually closed down.
See: his
But, as is characteristic of God toward those who trust Him, God turns tragedy to triumph, and so Lloyd is asked to assist Paul Hartwig in developing his doctoral thesis in theology (Dr Hartwig is now senior lecturer at the Baptist Seminary), and
Lloyd's teaching audience expands internationally through his website to an average of over a million hits annually.
But Lloyd continues his preaching and teaching.
Lloyd supports himself and his three children during this time as a financial consultant for Old Mutual
In addition, 
from January 1992, Lloyd begins teaching adult extra-mural Bible classes at Salem College (of the Salem Full Gospel Church, Bothasig, Cape Town) while voluntarily (unpaid/at his own cost) supporting the ministry of its local Full Gospel church pastor, and founder of Salem, Hensie Vroom who is suffering from increasingly debilitating Parkinson's disease (by preaching, crisis-counselling, and conducting his funerals and weddings), and Lloyd is then also requested to provide weekly Bible studies during this time (at his own cost) –
in a Baptist church in Grabouw, and also in the home of an Old Mutual colleague in Brackenfell.
church attendance is also not to be seen as support for, or agreement with, the doctrinal or theological perspective propagated in a church he attends, for to him his church attendance is purely an act of faithful obedience to spiritual identification with fellow believers in their worship as a Christian congregation. To him this distinction is particularly relevant because of
the general lack of understanding among church leaders of the lordship of the Holy Spirit in Christ's Church.
On July

in Woodstock
planned and
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 then identifies the headquarters building of the PAC in Woodstock and prepares to petrol-bomb their building to the ground, at 3am, when unoccupied (to prevent any human casualties), in order to publicly demonstrate the cruel error of their ways.
• But, on reading Ecclesiastes 5:8 in a Bible, lying randomly opened upon 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 therefore cancels his attack plan and disposes of the incendiary materials which he had prepared to completely destroy their head-quarter building in Woodstock as a public statement of judgement for their vicious crime against the worshippers in the St James church.

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 1998 
in Cape Town, Lloyd is physically assaulted by a group of uniformed South African police (SAPS) 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 late Friday afternoon, as part of an illegal protest by their police union. They (uniformed police) 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 then crowd around him and begin violently assaulting him with their elbows and knees, pushing him back against the bonnet of a police vehicle. 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.

Lloyd's further
conflict with the
South African Police
2000, deeply disturbed by the ongoing lethal 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, the 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.

 See: 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 response to his query).

Later, in preparing to move to the UK, Lloyd sells both his firearms: his 9mm-pistol to a friend (Henry Truter) in the Bothasig church, 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 by Czarek Rybak (case 419/11/2012, Parow) in attempted intimidation because he was assisting a young Bulgarian couple whom Rybak was attempting to intimidate (of whom Rybak had assaulted the wife), Lloyd discovers that it is still registered in his own name, which painfully confirms — the practical wisdom of learning to distrust those bearing public authority . . .
until it has been earned.
Lloyd moves 

to the UK in May 2001 (London, and four-years later to Chester) while continuing his Bible background historical research for the Israel TimeLine in the development of this website, and receives direct eye-witness testimony from an Auschwitz survivor he befriends (Zofia, 37543 inscribed on her arm with a sharp nail and soot rubbed into it on admission), as well as extensive historical resources at London's British museum, at the Louvre in Paris, and in Egypt (July 2005), 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).

• On Monday 

London's 7/7
suicide bombings
on public transport
 Lloyd posing at Madame Tussauds, London
morning, July 4, 2005, in Chester, UK , Lloyd is in prayer when he hears God say to him, concerning his son in London: "Your son is in danger".
It has such an effect that he can do nothing other than intercede in 'tongues'–prayer for his son 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 (at 08h49), three suicide bombers 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 believes 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 

"I took this wild stag photo one morning outside my front door. He looked at me as though he had been waiting for me."
While in Prince Rupert,
Lloyd is approached by two leaders of the 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 among other he had listed, he removes their names for their own safety.
2005 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 strategic 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. Within 6-weeks of his arrival he interrogates a long-term drug-addict and discovers that a missing woman (Tamara Chipman) had been murdered and all relevant details. So, in defiance of the chief investigating officer (Kelly Grant), he traces her father to inform him regarding his missing daughter, but when approached telephonically by a jounalist from Prince George, October 17, 2007, he holds back details feeling that he should not divulge them as it is a police matter and not directly part of his pastoral responsibility.
However, later that same night, he is then addressed by a voice in his bedroom,
which awakens him three times with the same emphatic statement:
"There were unclean animals in the Ark as well as clean" concerning the extent of Noah's responsibility.
 In the morning therefore, he concludes from this that God wishes him to treat those in the town outside (the "unclean") of his personal pastoral fold/responsibility (the "clean"), with equal concern for their welfare (so he emails the Prince George journalist with further details), which then leads him, among other, to involvement with the victims of crime in the wider community and related justice issues, including his exposure of on-going drug-related criminal activities (particularly international heroine-smuggling into Canada).
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.
Over time, on three particular occasions, Lloyd had been warned that his personal safety is at risk:
Previously, in London, UK, the Metropolitan police had warned him, concerning his supplying details to the police of crack-cocaine dealing in his immediate neighbourhood, that if the information with which he was supplying them becomes known he will be "taken out" [see Bollo Lane],
In Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada, he is warned by an ex-drug-smuggler, who had requested a meeting with him:
"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 had previously smuggled cocaine into Canada from Ecuador) then becomes his friend, and continues to feed him information.
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.
Harbour Ministries

Prince Rupert, BC, Canada

 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 
Church Leadership
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 that problem will not change.
So accordingly, in November he issues them with a two-month notice of resignation to leave beginning February 2009
(but asks that it be kept confidential until after the Christmas period so as not to cause any discouragement).
Unfortunately the 
leaders on the church diaconate (deacons) had apparently seen themselves as a 'board of directors' who employ a 'pastor', rather than as in a (Biblical) supportive-role to the congregational-direction set by his pastoral oversight, and thus he is not regarded by them a shepherd-leader in any Biblical sense.
Sadly, Lloyd 
discovers during his notice-period that the Church Council/Diaconate had begun holding their meetings without even notifying him so as to exclude him, thereby verifying that he had been regarded by them as nothing more than an 'employee', a hired chaplain to provide counselling and teaching. An elderly deacon he encounters at the church then tearfully informs Lloyd that the principal complaint against him by the church Diaconate is that the significant increase in Christian conversions, baptisms, and church membership from his ministry had not been equally matched by an increase in financial income.
Lloyd moves
to Cape Town
South Africa
in April 2009
Very sadly, the Lord's warning to him proves true, and so, some time after his departure, the church closes down.
In May 2010 
Lloyd's further
conflict with the
South African police
In November 2012 Lloyd's home is raided by the police and searched without a search warrant, who also attempt to arrest him in a local shopping centre on a false charge. He lays a complaint against these Parow police officers, which contributes to their arrest for corruption, but none are prosecuted. They are simply re-deployed to other areas.
in Cape Town, South Africa, Lloyd is approached for help by the owners of a second-hand store in the N1 City shopping mall, as their store had been hijacked and the locks changed while they were away over a weekend. So he obtains all details of the criminal syndicate involved (see their leaders) and consults the police Provincial Organised Crime unit, but the police refuse to become involved on the grounds that police Provincial Crime Intelligence is monitoring the store high-jacking as they believe it is planned 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 (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 persuades them to fax written authorization to change the store door-locks after hours
for otherwise the shopping mall security would regard the lock-picking and changing as a break-in.

Goodwood, Cape Town
to which Provincial Police Organised Crime Unit

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), they 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 SA police concerning them,
Lloyd later publishes the personal names and addresses of their leaders in the subsection on this website.
Later, Lloyd 
approaches the U.S. consulate in Tokai, Cape Town, with all of the above Pakistani-based criminal syndicate's personal details, and its al-Qa'eda related information and gives the information to a very unappreciative American CIA officer Thomas Murray (including cell phone numbers, vehicle registration numbers, and their personal home addresses).
America's CIA
Citizen of South AfricaThursday afternoon, 

Lloyd is subsequently warned, by a friend in military intelligence (Gen. PT), to "watch your back" for one of those officers may decide to "get even".
November 1, 2012, two South African police officers attempt to arrest Lloyd in coffee shop in a shopping centre (summons A5042217 Parow, case number 08/11/2012) on a false charge of 'pointing a firearm'. He refuses to be arrested, so the two then attempt to handcuff him, but because of his quick physical reaction the officers concerned retreat to the shopping centre entrance and call for back-up. Lloyd then lays a complaint against the police with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate, which contributes to the arrest for corruption of more than eight Parow police officers (click for a photo of their arrest), but he then later discovers that none of them are prosecuted –
They were all simply "redeployed" to other police stations/precincts.
When Lloyd subsequently enters that same coffee-shop, where his attempted arrest had taken place, its owner, who had watched the wole incident, says earnestly to him –
"Lloyd you must be more gentle with the Police",
so he is not sure how his response appears to others – but blames his ancestry for his instinctive quick reactions.

SA Police Cover-up.
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 (ICC reference OTP-CR-50/16/001), 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 . . .
See PDF of Lloyd's reply
to the International
Criminal Court on the
prosecution of
Vladimir V Putin.
Late in 2016, 
Lloyd is approached by a person with a Russian connection (codenetwork@yandex.com) wanting his cell-phone number – to discuss 'world-affairs'. He refuses as a precaution, for it would enable his location to be tracked, and later as the person also refuses to give his surname, residential location, or to explain his Russian connection, Lloyd also declines. Although uncertain —
it is possible that he was a Putin stooge sent to locate Lloyd for a 'hit' on him as a consequence of Lloyd's International Criminal Court action.
"What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it tell of Your faithfulness? Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me! O LORD, be my helper!
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, that my glory may sing Your praise and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever!
" (Psalm 30:9-12)
If you clash with Lloyd – it is probably wiser, for your own sake, to back off, for he tends to not be affected by any form of intimidation whatsoever! 
Lloyd's continuing social principle has been to treat the community as his extended family, as being
the application of Christ's command to "love your neighbour as yourself" (Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27) and as a consequence of which,
he has frequently become involved in other people's problems, even arresting a violent passenger on a London underground station.

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"

Among  those  that  think  they  know  him.
"...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...

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 it is 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 four hostiles and the Bible's statement in 2 Timothy 4:14 is enough.

In only the first two weeks of February 2017, there were eleven farm murders, making it by far as one of the bloodiest months for South African farms.
Farm attacks, wherein no one died were also reported, but it now appears that they do not report all the attacks because farmers no longer have confidence in the justice system.
In South Africa: Health Ombudsman Professor Makgoba reports (01/02/2017) that the DEATH toll from starvation and dehydration of mentally ill patients
who were transferred from 'Life Esidimeni' hospital (which was being shut down) to unlicensed NGOs will continue to rise, and is now ABOVE 100...
Health Ombudsman Professor Makgoba also reports in this connection that –
"When the director and head of department found that the [NGOs] licenses were not correct, they went around and signed new licences. ...So some NGOs now have three licences, signed in the same year by the same two people."
Professor Makgoba states that the data he received from the Gauteng health department is "full of problems" and "never the same". "In one instance, 22 patients were recorded as having two dates of death. ...Now, you can't die twice! And the data always came from the same department.
