The true story of James Lloyd doing business as Christian Media Network
Prophecy for Sale
"They that will not be counseled, cannot be helped. If you do not hear reason she will rap you on the knuckles."
- Benjamin Franklin
James Lloyd makes no small issue of the phenomena which he calls the "spiritual signatures" which seem to be all around us. Obvious in their simplicity and yet regularly ignored and discounted by most of us, these numinous signposts are a spontaneous byproduct of the otherworldly entities which control the thoughts and actions of humanity.
To understand spiritual signatures fully, we need to recognize the fact that all things, including thought, are spiritual, that is to say, they have a spirit of one kind or another behind them. One cannot commit as sin unless a tempting thought first occurs. The thoughts themselves do not originate within us, but come from "the outside". It does sound odd to state it in this way, but the truth is that we do not "actively", think our thoughts, because they they are not our own. Our role is more passive. The only active role we exercise in the process, is to focus our attention on one spirit or another. We merely choose which thoughts we will embrace, and the choices we make are dictated by our hearts. There is a spiritual battle taking place in our minds every moment which involves our wrestling against "our" thoughts, and to win those battles, we are told to bring every thought into captivity and obedience of Christ Jesus.
2nd Corinthians 10:5 "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;"
Each thought carries the signature (however subtle) of the spirit which places it in our field of attention, which comes disguised as originating of ourselves, and for that reason if for no other, the signature of the source is generally occluded and out of our conscious perception. Because of this, we usually don't recognize this spiritual action in the thoughts of others either. We see more obvious examples of spiritual signatures manifested in the arts, with artists who for example, immerse a figure said to represent Christ, into a jar of urine, or playwrights and filmmakers who depict Christ as a homosexual or a hypocrite.
We have of course the favorable mention of Satan in contemporary rock and roll music in the names of bands such as Judas Priest® (mocking Christ by using the name of the man who betrayed our Savior in the context of a religious figure), Nirvana®, who created a music video named "Heart Shaped Box©", which used images of "Santa Claus" being crucified, AC/DC® who gave us such songs as "Highway to Hell©" and "Hell's Bells©" (which has the very explicit lyric "...Satan's calling to you..") and of course the band "Black Sabbath®". This is all explained away by the agents involved, as being nothing more sinister than a mere marketing ploy. It's all in jest they say. Unfortunately, most fans of such music remain oblivious to these blatant signatures. We also see a less obvious form of these signatures in the occult symbols and images on the products and in the lyrics of other Rock and Roll musical groups such as Led Zeppelin®, and numerous New Age Musicians such as Andreas Vollenweider (we will have more to say on Vollenweider later in this chapter) . The concept of spiritual signatures is easy enough to grasp if we should just examine the evidence in the light of the wisdom given us in the Bible.
Spirits are real, and are manifested in humanity through the vehicle of thought and expressed through speech the written word, and other behaviors. There is perhaps no more significant iteration of this principal than in the realm of prophecy. It is the vague prophecies of James Lloyd along with the spiritual signatures with which they are imbued, which we will examine in this chapter. One need only consider the New Age associations with which Lloyd has made an alliance to understand that he eschews the gospel of Christ for the gospel of mammon. One such association can be discovered by following this link.
New Age Prophets of the Occult
There have been others who have come before James Lloyd, who have made many a vague prediction, but perhaps the most notable is the famous 16th century "astrologer" named Michel de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus. He made many prophecies, both for his current era and the distant future. Most famous are his Centuries, a series of 942 verses, grouped in sets of 100, describing future events. A single verse is commonly called a quatrain and 100 quatrains a Centurie. There have been many people in the last century, who have maintained that Nostradamus was a "prophet", and indeed, if one is mildly generous with interpretation, he seems to have a better track record than James Lloyd. Imagine what notoriety and commercial success Nostradamus might have achieved if he had a shortwave radio network to use as a platform to generate sales of books and tapes.
Let's examine now some of his "predictions", which using the standard employed by James Lloyd, might qualify him as a "Prophet", "Prophecy Writer" or "Prophecy Figure". The contemporary interpretations of some of his "prophecies" were making the rounds within hours of the attacks on U.S. in September of 2001. The "prophecy figure" Nostradamus 1654 said:
"In the City of God there will be a great thunder, Two brothers torn apart by Chaos, while the fortress endures, the great leader will succumb", The third big war will begin when the big city is burning"
Other Famous prophecies follow:
The "Hister" Quatrains
(Often interpreted as making reference to "Adolph Hitler")
Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers,
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.
Into a cage of iron will the great one be drawn,
When the child of Germany observes nothing.
(Century 2, Quatrain 24)
In the year very not far from Venus,
The two greatest ones of Asia and of Africa:
They are said to have come from the Rhine and from Hister
Cries, tears at Malta and the Ligurian sea-coast.
(Century 4, Quatrain 68)
Liberty will not be regained,
It will be occupied by a black, proud, villainous and unjust man:
When the matter of the Pontiff is opened,
The republic of Venice will be vexed by Hister.
(Century 5, Quatrain 29)
The shocking and infamous armed one will fear the great furnace,
First the chosen one, the captives not returning:
The world's lowest crime, the Angry Female Irale (Israel?) not at ease,
Barb, Hister, Malta, and the Empty One does not return.
(From Nostradamus' Almanac of 1557)
The ancient work will be accomplished,
And from the roof evil ruin will fall on the great man:
They will accuse an innocent, being dead, of the deed:
The guilty one is hidden in the misty copse.
(Century 6, Quatrain 37)
The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt,
The evil deed predicted by the bearer of a petition:
According to the prediction another falls at night,
Conflict in Reims, London, and pestilence in Tuscany.
(Century 1, Quatrain 27)
The following observations have been put forth as "Proof" of the accuracy of the "prophecy" of Nostradamus: Murder. Book Depository. Oswald shot and assigned guilt, (although there has been much controversy over this assessment). Grassy knoll. Gunfire. Jean Dixon's warning. Robert Kennedy shot at night time. Student riots in France and England. The Florence flood.
Here are even more "Predictions" from Nostradamus.
Century 2, Quatrain 30
One who the infernal gods of Hannibal
Will cause to be reborn, terror of all mankind
Never more horror nor the newspapers tell of worse in the past,
Than will come to the Romans through Babel (Iraq).
Cheetham: Eternal gods of Hannibal means North Africa or the Middle East; there comes forth a man who will bring trouble to the whole world; the last line may refer to the collapse of the Catholic Church.
Hogue: Nostradamus may be hinting that the Third Antichrist [The first was Napoleon; the second was Hitler.] comes from a modern day region in North Africa or the Middle East; the concept of newspapers was unheard of in the time of Nostradamus; perhaps it refers to terrorism in the headlines. An Antichrist who comes from North Africa? Could this be Boutros Boutros Ghali? Is Nostradamus now a "prophet"? Let us examine another "Prediction" James Lloyd shares with this 16th century Astrologer.
Century 6, Quatrain 97
The sky will burn at forty-five degrees latitude,
Fire approaches the great new city [New York City lies between 40-45 degrees]
Immediately a huge, scattered flame leaps up
When they want to have verification from the Normans [French].
Century 1, Quatrain 87
Ennosigee feu du centre de terre,
Fera trembler autour de cité neuue
Deux gras rochers long têps feront la guerre,
Puis Arethuse rougira nouueau fleuue.
Earth-shaking fire from the center of the earth.
Will cause the towers around the New City to shake,
Two great rocks for a long time will make war,
And then Arethusa will color a new river red.
It should be obvious to the believer in Jesus Christ, that while there are certainly interesting corollaries between recent events and certain words or phrases found in some quatrains, we certainly cannot depend upon the writings of Nostradamus to help us order our lives, nor can this Astrologer be trusted to impart knowledge which will lead us into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Would James Lloyd turn to the occult when he knows the word of God?We have an example in the Old Testament of an anointed king of Israel who sought his own comfort and welfare above that of the people that God had given him to reign over. After many transgressions, God cast him off and gave him over to a reprobate mind. As this King named Saul faced the Army of the Philistines, we are told in 1st Samuel Chapter 28, of the desperation which moved Saul to seek prophecy from a witch in the village of Endor. But what does this have to with James Lloyd? After all, he has had a number of fulfilled prophecies which proves he is a Godly man right? If we listen to his network, we might be persuaded to accept this as so. According to his commercials, James Lloyd predicted:
"The Assassination of Yitzak Rabin 2 years before it occurred."
"A terrorist attack on the World Trade Center." (The implication being that he foresaw the September 11th attack.)
"The rise of the Cult "Heavens Gate".
The commercial goes on to state
"There are many other prophecies you should know about."
So what about the "fulfilled prophecies" of James Lloyd? Don't they "prove" that he is operating in the power of the Holy Spirit? Let's examine this question in detail. To begin with, there seems to be no record (aside from his commercial) that I can ascertain, which would indicate that there was any prediction from James Lloyd, that Rabin would be assassinated, and if there was, it probably mentioned that "some Israeli leader" would be killed by a "Jewish" assailant. The term "leader' is vague enough to refer to almost anyone with even minimal authority, a religious leader, a cabinet official, a mayor etc. There are those in (as James calls it) the "Rapture Cult", who would expect a "Jewish Antichrist" to kill a "religious leader" (or more, as in the case of the Two Witnesses ) , which would fulfill this "prediction".
As regards the World Trade Center attack: This "Prediction" actually referred to the annihilationof New York City prophesied in the book of Revelation, Chapter 18, and not an attack on the World Trade Center towers themselves. In fact, as regards the Islamic attack on September 11th 2003, James confided in me almost 3 years ago that he "never saw another limited attack coming", and was then reminded that such things happen in "groups of three", and he admitted that it should have occurred to him.
Clearly, the first attack involving a car bomb using high explosives was NOT mentioned by James Lloyd at any time prior to the attack (though his commercial makes that implication) nor did he predict an attack by terrorists using commercial airliners, as happened in the 2nd incident on September 11th, 2003. His "prediction" was that New York city would be DESTROYED by a nuclear device, and that it would happen 5 YEARS AGO! He has now maintained that his "timing" was "off", and that it will happen this year (2003), although he has begun to waffle and state "well it could happen as late as July 19th, or even in November...but it might happen earlier...". In other words, he doesn't really know, and he has simply revised the prediction after the facts are known.
As to his prediction of the "Heavens Gate" Cult: Contrary to Christian Media® "Commercial Myth", James Lloyd did NOT predict the rise of the cult "Heavens Gate". What he actually did, was to use that phrase as the title for the Third chapter of his book "Beyond Babylon". The term itself, comes from 2 Chaldean words, "Bab" meaning a "gate", and the word "El', meaning "God". This word pronounced "el", is the root for the word "Elohim", which refers to God. Contrary to his commercial proclamations, he predicted nothing about "Heavens Gate ", instead, the "prediction" referred to the Tower of "Babel". This taking credit for "prophecies" and "predictions" by stretching the facts is typical of James Lloyd's Modus Operandi.
These incidents of manipulating the facts after an event, were strangely "predicted" while James was examining how false prophets sanitize their false prophecies in his book "Beyond Babylon©", in Chapter Five, Page 18. Here is the direct quote: "Another clever dodge, utilized by seer Jeanne Dixon, is to revise the prediction after the facts are known" It is interesting that he cannot see the same mechanism at work in his own "ministry". You may remember from chapter 1 of this report, the fact that James admitted the use of “New Age Translations” of the bible such as the “New International Version” (also referred to as the NIV), the “Revised Standard Version©”, the “New English Bible©” and the “Amplified Bible©”, in forming his "prophetic understandings" which he published in "Beyond Babylon©".
In this book, he also acknowledges his dependence upon many authors and “Christian” individuals whom he now calls “Liars” and “Reprobate”. Among them are Pat Robertson, founder of the “PTL Club®”, Chuck Smith, founder of the “Calvary Chapel®” organization, pre tribulationrapturist Chuck Missler, as well as another man James has branded a false prophet, author Hal Lindsey, and other “mainstream Christian leaders”. He has depended upon the writings of the apostate Ellen G. White who was a theologian in and an early leader of the Seventh Day Adventist movement, and also allowed pagans such as Immanuel Velikovsky, Mary Relfe, and David Yallop to form the basis for a great portion of the book.
His criticism of Hal Lindsey, whom James thanked in the acknowledgements section of his book 'Beyond Babylon' as influencing his work, seems especially hollow. Of Lindsey he has publicly stated many times: "He is a lying criminal." James Lloyd has been noted many times saying: " The European Union" (also known as the European Common Market, or the "EC") is not the 'revived Roman Empire' as Lindsey says it is...there is no revived Roman Empire...These people teaching it are a pack of morons..." Let us then examine Page 38 in Chapter 9 of his "Foundational Teaching" that "the Lord" gave him in 1992 in this book "Beyond Babylon":
"The EC is widely identified in the bible as The Revived Roman Empire."
The chapter goes on to describe a number of assumptions about this "Revived Roman Empire" which James Lloyd now claims are lies and false prophecies, even as he continues to sell the book claiming that it contains the understandings "the Lord" gave him. Notice that he states (without any verifying scripture) that the bible "identifies" the Common Market (EU) as the "Revived Roman Empire."
Did the Bible lie? Was he wrong and if so, why has he maintained the charade?
This raises many serious questions. Did the Lord lie to James about these "prophecies", or did James Lloyd lie to sell a book (actually thousands of them)? The Lord has nothing to gain by lying, but James Lloyd has nothing to lose and everything to gain by his deception. The Lord cannot lie (It is impossible, Hebrews 6:18), James Lloyd has made a practice of it. So it seems as though either James Lloyd is lying, or that the God of Heaven is lying. I know who I believe. Whom do you believe?
Planet "X" and the "Pole Shift"
Another teaching James Lloyd and others such as Christian Media Network® host Stewart Best have used to make money, maintains that a "Rogue Planet" will appear and bring about a "shift" in the magnetic orientation of the poles of planet earth. There is of course, NO BIBLICAL EVIDENCE to support such a statement, but there are MANY OCCULTIC WRITINGS which would concur with his teaching on this portion of end time events. Indeed, while he denounces the black arts of the occult with one side of his mouth, he has with the other side of his mouth given credit to the same worshipers of the "dark forces", for helping him gain an understanding of "Bible Prophecy". One of these "understandings" he has "gained", is that there will be certain "Earth Changes" which God left out of the bible, but which he gave to the psychics, seers, and wizards of the occult (and of course also to James).
One of the first proponents of the idea of a "Planet X' was a Russian born immigrant named Immanuel Velikovsky, whom James Lloyd gives credit in the book "Beyond Babylon©". It is interesting how well the following criticism of Velikovsky by R T Carroll, fits James Lloyd himself.
"Velikovsky has faith in all ancient myths, legends, and folk tales. Because of his uncritical and selective acceptance of ancient myths, he cannot be said to be doing history, either. Where myths can be favorably interpreted to fit his hypothesis, he does not fail to cite them. The contradictions of ancient myths regarding the origin of the cosmos, the people, etc. are trivialized."
"If a myth fits his hypotheses, he accepts it and interprets it to his liking. Where the myth doesn't fit, he ignores it. In short, he seems to make no distinction between myth, legends, and history."
This criticism can be applied to the teachings of James Lloyd with ease.
When his works were first published in the early 20th century, the New York literary world considered Velikovsky a genius on par with "Darwin and Freud". Not exactly the company you would expect a "Prophet of the Lord" to keep. Another criticism of Velikovsky's work :
"Imagine we're on earth 3,500 years ago when an object about the same size as our planet is coming at us from outer space! It whacks us a couple of times, spins our planet around so that its rotation stops and starts again, creates great heat and upheavals from within the planet and yet the most anyone can remember about these catastrophes are things like "....and the sun stood still" [Joshua 10: 12-13] and other stories of darkness, storms, upheavals, plagues, floods, snakes and bulls in the sky, etc. No one in ancient times mentions an object the size of earth colliding with us. You'd think someone amongst these ancient peoples, who all loved to tell stories, would have told their grandchildren about it. Someone would have passed it on. But no one on earth seems to remember such an event."
From 1924 to 1939, Velikovsky lived in Palestine, practicing psychoanalysis- he had studied under Sigmund Freud's pupil, Wilhelm Stekel in Vienna. His educational roots in the Black Art of Psychiatry are betrayed in his book, by his humanistic explanations of the lack of historical records, which would be expected to chronicle the "Planet X" event in a chapter entitled "A Collective Amnesia." He reverts to the old Freudian notion of repressed memory and neurosis. These events were just too traumatic and horrible to bear he believes, so we all buried the memory of them deep in our subconscious minds. Our ancient myths are neurotic expressions of memories and dreams based on real experiences. According to Velikovsky:
"The task I had to accomplish was not unlike that faced by a psychoanalyst who, out of disassociated memories and dreams, reconstructs a forgotten traumatic experience in the early life of an individual. In an analytical experiment on mankind, historical inscriptions and legendary motifs often play the same role as recollections (infantile memories) and dreams in the analysis of a personality "
The typically unscientific theories and fanciful explanations of psychoanalysis seem even less credible when applied to the entire population, yet to the New York literati, in love as they were with all things Freudian, speculations such as these guaranteed one's genius. This love, has translated to the Pseudo-intellectuals such as James Lloyd.
Another anomaly in his book, was relative to the composition of the atmosphere of Venus, Velikovsky thought it was hydrogen rich with hydrocarbon clouds. NASA put out an erroneous report in 1963 that said Mariner 2 had found evidence of hydrocarbon clouds. In 1973 it was determined that the clouds are made mainly of sulfuric acid particles. Such discrepancies are easily cast aside when there is money to be made from the fears and superstitions of those gullible people, who have itching ears, who will pay others to scratch them. James Lloyd knows where you itch, and he is more than happy to oblige.
Without shame, and with no expectation that he will be caught by the "Morons" (his quote, not mine) who listen to his network "programming", James has himself "published" some of Velikovsky's writings, and offers them for sale NOW, on his network. This isn't surprising, since he announced his intention to "reach out to" people in the "occult" months ago. And all the time, he laughs about it, mocking the "Christians" who support him with their purchases, tithes, and offerings.
There is a spirit being manifested in James Lloyd which seems to be saying about God, "Let there be no fear of Him, or his Son". It mimics the Philosophy of the renowned Satanist and Occultist Aleister Crowley. When asked about the teachings of Satanism he summed it up simply: "Do as thou will, is the whole of the law". That James Lloyd feels comfortable embracing of the occult, and justifying it with the need to satisfy "The bottom line", should scare the stuffing out of any sincere Christian. Those who are so desensitized to the taste of leaven, that they will eat of it at all cost, deserve to reap the fruit of blasphemy.
We will examine another superstition which keeps close company with the "Planet X" stories. This is the idea of a "pole shift" , which was put forth more than 70 years ago by a "psychic" known as Edgar Cayce. Cayce's writings not only concern a "pole shift", but the re-appearance of the "lost continent of Atlantis". According to Cayce, in the period of time between 1958 and 2001, the North magnetic pole and the South magnetic pole should have switched polarities. This means that a compass should read the opposite of what it does today, because of the dramatic earth changes. If we accept the reasoning of James Lloyd, it would seem that Cayce was simply a victim of a "failed prophecy", or had trouble with "timing".
Another proponent of the Planet X scenario is new age-occult writer Zecharia Sitchen. According to Sitchen in his book on the subject "the 12th Planet", we must be prepared for the imminent return of an alien race "who created us some 300,000 years ago". Rather than criticize James Lloyds source, why not examine Sitchen's own work, an excerpt from his treatise "THE CASE OF ADAM’S ALIEN GENES"
"In whose image was The Adam – the prototype of modern humans, Homo sapiens – created?"
"The Bible asserts that the Elohim said: “Let us fashion the Adam in our image and after our likeness.” But if one is to accept a tentative explanation for enigmatic genes that humans possess, offered when the deciphering of the human genome was announced in mid-February, the feat was decided upon by a group of bacteria!"
"In the evolutionary progression from bacteria to invertebrates (such as the lineages of yeast, worms, flies or mustard weed – which have been deciphered) to vertebrates (mice, chimpanzees) and finally modern humans, these 223 genes are completely missing in the invertebrate phase. Therefore, the scientists can explain their presence in the human genome by a “rather recent” (in evolutionary time scales) “probable horizontal transfer from bacteria.”
"In other words: At a relatively recent time as Evolution goes, modern humans acquired an extra 223 genes not through gradual evolution, not vertically on the Tree of Life, but horizontally, as a sideways insertion of genetic material from bacteria…"
"But if Man gave those genes to bacteria, where did Man acquire those genes to begin with?"
"Readers of my books must be smiling by now, for they know the answer."
"They know that the biblical verses dealing with the fashioning of The Adam are condensed renderings of much much more detailed Sumerian and Akkadian texts, found inscribed on clay tablets, in which the role of the Elohim in Genesis is performed by the Anunnaki – “Those Who From Heaven to Earth Came.”
"As detailed in my books, beginning with The 12th Planet (1976) and even more so in Genesis Revisited and The Cosmic Code, the Anunnaki came to Earth some 450,000 years ago from the planet Nibiru – a member of our own solar system whose great orbit brings it to our part of the heavens once every 3,600 years. They came here in need of gold, with which to protect their dwindling atmosphere. Exhausted and in need of help in mining the gold, their chief scientist Enki suggested that they use their genetic knowledge to create the needed Primitive Workers. When the other leaders of the Anunnaki asked: How can you create a new being? He answered:
"The being that we need already exists;
all that we have to do is put our mark on it.”
"The time was some 300,000 years ago."

Although James Lloyd is as aware of the unique distinctive of these ethereal beings as anyone, he is characteristically oblivious to the telltale signs of this quality in his own thoughts, behaviors, and dealings. Blinded by pride, self interest, and the conviction that he is right, he goes forth without considering the words of Christ which tell us to "Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness" Luke 11:35. As the word of God tells us in the book of Proverbs 26:11: "As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.", so too has James Lloyd returned in graduated steps to his occult roots, motivated by the same spirits pride and mammon, which has driven him for so long. In his fealty to these spirits, he has embraced teachings and practices which he condemns in others, and in so doing, he has abandoned any claim he might have made, to be doing the work of the Lord.
Matthew 24:4-5: And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many."
"But what about all the "Fulfilled Prophecies" of James Lloyd?" you might ask, could he not sincerely say to Christ on judgment day "I have prophesied in your name"? Doesn't that indicate that he is in God's favor?
Sadly, many Christians are deceived by James Lloyd, into following his anti-Christian lifestyle, because of their willingness to accept his liberal interpretations of his "prophecies", which at best could be said to be on par with those of a 16th Century Astrologer. The fact that he is picking the pockets of the faithful under the cover of being a "prophet", is less grievous than the fact that there are eternal consequences for those who follow false prophets.
So we see that according to one of James Lloyd's "inspirational sources", Adam was not created in the image of God, but in the image of the "Nephilim", and that the process of evolution was at work in combination with a "group of bacteria", and that Man was not created 6,000 years ago as the bible tells us, but instead, 300,000 years ago. Furthermore, Sitchen maintains that the bible is not the inspired word of God but instead, the bastardized version of a BABYLONIAN TEXT! In all this, there are still people who claim to be Christians, who claim to love God and the Truth of his word, who will defend the BLASPHEMOUS fruit of James Lloyd! Don't believe what I say about Sitchen though, be Berean. Go to The Official Website of Zecharia Sitchen and prove it for yourself.
Let us now examine the "prophetic" history of some "Christian Media Network" favorites: Mark Hazlewood, author of "Blindsided," a book about the coming of Planet X, Dr. James McCanney, author of a similar book, and Richard Hoagland. None of these men are Christians, yet James Lloyd has given them access to the souls of the unsuspecting listeners of the Christian Media Network for commercial gain. He can have his "30 pieces of silver", which is his due for betraying the sheep, but you have been warned. You can bask in the love of Judas while he kisses you if you like, but you will have no excuse on Judgment Day.
Mark Hazelwood is an especially interesting character, as he was at one time a disciple of admitted "spirit medium" Nancy Lieder, who began him on his "quest" for Planet X. Using as a source for your bible prophecy, a book written by someone who was influenced by a woman, who was channeling alien information is not a good base to start from.
Who is Nancy Lieder?
Nancy Lieder is a middle-aged woman who claims to be channeling telepathic messages from aliens who reside in Zeta Reticuli system. She runs a website called Zeta Talk, (which as if to advertise his spiritual bankruptcy, the self appointed "Watchman" of Christian Media Network® Rick Walters has a linked from his actsoneeight website, under the title "Planet X") where she posts messages from the Zetas and from herself interpreting the Zetan messages and relating them to current events. In particular, Nancy Lieder's messages pertain to Planet X and its return, the destruction of life on Earth due to Planet X, as well as numerous political topics. Strangely, she is the 2nd person to claim to be in contact with beings from Zeta Reticuli, the first was Ben Goldman, a 1960s and 70s horror movie producer. As an explanation as to why her "prediction" that Planet X would be visible in April of 2003 has not come to pass, Ms. Lieder claims that there is a dark cloud surrounding Planet X / Nibiruwhich polarizes the light that should be reflecting off of it, which effectively makes it invisible to anyone not in the correct place at the correct time. According to Lieder, Planet X was due at 30 seconds past midnight, Eastern daylight Time, on the 15th of May, 2003. I should also mention that Ms. Lieder also predicted that Planet X / Nibiruwould become daytime visible sometime in April 2003. It has not done so. Her last date for its appearance is June 1st, 2003.
It NEVER happened!
ZetaTalk Prophecy in the "Chandra Levy Case"
On a live radio program in New York in 2001, ZetaTalk stated that Congressman Gary Condit's missing intern Chandra Levy was actually in Mexico with a case of amnesia. Unfortunately, her body was found in a Washington D.C. park in May 2002.
It should be understood, that just like Christian Media Network, Zeta Talk is not about accuracy, but is about pleasing the unsubstantiated opinions of its "many many fans", the Zeta Reticuli People.
More Misc. Predictions of Planet X
According to predictions put forth in the spring of 2002 by James Lloyd, his associates and other "Xers": "Planet X will be in plain view beginning in the autumn of 2002."... "In the 7 weeks prior to the passage (when the pole shift occurs) the planet will be visible as a reddish cross in the sky to the naked eye."... "This will remain unexplained by the authorities, but varying explanations will be put forth to quell a fearful public."
Another source says: "But in the spring of 2003, it will suddenly make its appearance. It will be some event. Within months, Planet X will reach the inner regions of the solar system, disturbing the eclipses of the planets and bombarding us with comets. In May, it will pass Earth, missing it only at a few hairs’ lengths. Or, well: hitting us at full force, perhaps. The Planet X-story had started to lead a life of its own. The breakthrough came in 1976, when a by the name of Zecharia Sitchin linked the Planet X-problem of the astronomers up with Sumerian and Babylonian mythology."
And there is this one "By April 2003, Planet X should be visible to the naked eye."
"During the coming weeks until mid/late May, Planet X will start to decrease in declination. It drops beneath the plane of the ecliptic that the other planets orbit close to in order to evade particle flows. Declination sharply decreases between 9th May and 15th May 2003, not long before the time of the passage and pole shift."
Even the Rapturists, not wanting to be LEFT BEHIND have gravitated toward the Ecumenical Planet X.
According to Apostle Nikomia, Planet X will bring about the Great Tribulation "after the Rapture":
"We must interject here that not all Christians who believe they will be raptured before the horrors of the Tribulation begin will be taken out of harm's way. Those who are lukewarm or cold in their relationship with YAHWEH and YAHSHUA, who have left their first love, who are not obedient to His commandments, who use grace as an excuse to continue sinning...WILL BE LEFT BEHIND!"
So, are we to be terrorized in the end days? What does THE BIBLE Say
2nd Timothy "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
Romans 8:15 "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."
Why then do people such as James Lloyd continue to be fear mongers in the face of scripture? We are told that false prophets shall be among those who are called God's people in the last days, who will extort money from the fearful, using heretical teachings, cloaked in the language of God's word, and attacking with railing accusation, any who might confront them or warn the brethren, to camouflage their own wanton covetousness. Speaking "great swelling words of vanity" (I am a "prophetic phenomena" says one, I am the "Watchman" says another), they beguile unstable souls with their riotous teachings, which mock the very Lord which bought them, as they follow the ways of Balaam, uttering their "prophecies" for the unrighteous wages of the god of mammon.
2nd Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self willed they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
2:17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire."
Perhaps James should apply his own words to himself, as they are found in the book Beyond Babylon, Chapter Five, page 20:
"Unfortunately, our enthusiasm for the subject sometimes exceeds our better judgment in how forcefully we articulate our theological arguments."
Given this understanding, it would seem that James has ignored his own observation, and thrown caution to the winds for the sake of vainglory and money.
But how could James Lloyd seem to have some prophecy right? He does recognize the false teaching of the pre-tribulation rapture and the nature of the beast. Doesn't that prove that he is operating in the power of the Holy Spirit? To answer that question, we go to the word of God.
The Bible says in Acts 16:16 "And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: 6:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. 16:18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
16:19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, 16:20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, 16:21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans. 16:22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.
Notice this: This damsel was speaking the truth about the Holy Spirit. But she was doing this under the power of an unclean spirit of divination. She was not prophesying in the Spirit of Truth. She was "possessed". It is also notable that she was prophesying for gain. That means that she was doing this for money.
Was God pleased with this woman and her masters? Did Paul give thanks to God for the "help"? Did Paul call her a "sister" or a co-laborer?
We are told that Paul, "being grieved" cast out the demon which moved her to do this. It is also interesting that her masters brought them to the rulers and accused them of causing trouble. Her masters made a great deal of money off of Paul. He was good for business as long as he was willing to suffer them. But when he stood up in the power of the Holy Spirit and exorcised the demon, threatening the money which was made from her soothsaying, her masters began to seek fault with them, and not one moment sooner (we are told this took place over "many days"). They did not tell the leaders why they really took issue with Paul, Silas, and company. They instead went to the governing authorities, having an argument which they could justify before them, and delivered them to be beaten.
James Lloyd is desperate because he knows that the taking of money for prophecy is a very serious sin, and he fears the listeners who support him will stop giving him money more than he fears the Lord who has warned all his people against such practices. Accusing others of HIS faults is a classic James Lloyd maneuver to avoid discovery. This is described in the bible as the sin (or error) of Balaam. We are told of an incident which took place as the people of Israel were sojourning prior to their arrival in Canaan. Balak was king of the Moabites and offered "the rewards of divination" to Balaam to prophesy against Israel.
Numbers 22:8 "And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word again, as the LORD shall speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam". Notice that he was not paid to speak in the name of Chemosh or Baal.
He went out to take care of his own "Bottom Line" and we are told in Numbers 22:22:
"And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him." Numbers 22:23 "And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way." Numbers 22:24 "But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.
Do we not see the same attitude on the part of James Lloyd when he resists the teaching of the bible? How many time have we heard him complain angrily that "The Devil's coming at us on every side" when he is resisted? Does he ever stop and reflect that maybe the Lord is against some of the things he is doing? I have never heard him admit that, and I doubt you have either. In his self will and pride, he angrily denounces as a tool of Satan, anyone who might be used as a vessel to bring him to repentance. This behavior fits James' own interpretation of the unforgivable sin, blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.
This may perhaps explain why God is not willing to open James' eyes as he did with Balaam.
Numbers 22::31 "Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face."
But wasn't Balaam able to restore himself into God's good graces by prophesying against the King of Moab? After all, he did follow God's command after that point. We read otherwise in the book of Joshua.
Joshua 13:22 Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer, did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them.
We are told in the epistle of 2nd Peter about the times we live in today. God warned us in that book about the false prophets who have come in the name of God and are amongst us now, who privily (privately) have brought into the congregation of God, "damnable heresies", to make merchandise of God's people. He specifically mentions prophesying for gain by the teachers and false prophets in these latter days.
2nd Peter 2:15 "Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;"
The heavy handed practice of attacking anyone who takes a stand against them, and the vitriolic zeal against those who threaten to upset the commercial "applecart", is explained in the book of Jude.
Jude 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves 11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core
And in their pursuit of mammon they cause God's people to stumble, as Christ noted in his letter to the church of Pergamos:
Rev 2:14 "But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication."
The reason that there are many well meaning Christians who cannot see this happening at Christian Media, despite regular commercials selling occult prophecy, was addressed by Paul.
In 2nd Thessalonians - Chapter 2, Paul mentions the "mystery of iniquity" which will not only allow the world to be deceived by the Antichrist, but the Christian "Church" as well. This "mystery" is characteristic of the spirit of the "New Age", which has fooled not only mainstream believers into following the unscriptural teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture, but the occultic teachings which are so prevalent in what has been called "Remnant Christianity" today. This is not surprising, as the pre-tribulation rapture itself has occultic origins, first being articulated by "Christians" who loved to hear of occult teachings, and who practiced "levitation".
2 Thessalonians 2:10 "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
The phrase about having "pleasure in unrighteousness" is very telling. It speaks not of riotous carnality and sensual pleasure as many imagine, but speaks of the intellectual pleasure many people have today in hearing new "mysterious" teachings. This is the spirit which draws so many believers into the Christian Media Cult.
The prospect of learning some esoteric thing moves them to abandon the plain true teachings of the bible, because they love the "Dark Mysteries" more than the truth we have all been given. In their "deceivableness", they willingly accept the commercial aspect of the cult along with any explanations as to how it might be viewed somehow as biblical, because their desire to be initiated into "the mysteries" of Christian Media, outweighs their desire to please God on his own terms.
Why has James Lloyd sought his prophecy in the occult?
The answer to this question, seems to be found in the book of 1st Samuel.
1st Samuel 28:6 "And when Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets. 28:7 Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and inquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. 28:8 And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. 28:9 And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? 28:10 And Saul sware to her by the LORD, saying, As the LORD liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. 28:11 Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. 28:12 And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. 28:13 And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. 28:14 And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself. 28:15 And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do. 28:16 Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the LORD is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy? 28:17 And the LORD hath done to him, as he spake by me: for the LORD hath rent the kingdom out of thine hand, and given it to thy neighbor, even to David:"
New Age Music
As mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, music has a very special connection with spiritual signatures. Of relative interest as relates to spiritual signatures and the Christian Media Network®, is the choice of music James Lloyd has made relative to the commercials and theme songs of various programs. That James is aware of the spiritual properties cannot be in doubt if we read his book "Beyond Babylon©" (which also quotes lyrics from many artists who are influenced by "Dark" spiritual forces.) On page 44 of that book when speaking of the use Nebuchadnezzar made of the spiritual power of music in the idolatrous worship of Babylon, James states: "...actually it should come as no surprise considering the obvious power of music to invoke a spiritual experience."
It is especially notable (as well as an excellent example of a spiritual signature) that he chose to use the word "invoke", when speaking of the power of music. The word invoke, is usually used when describing the process of calling up spirits by necromancers for the purpose of divination (or prophesying if you like), and elicits images of Sorcerers and Magicians working in the demonic arts. The word itself comes from the Latin "invocare" which comes from the root words "in", meaning in or on, and vocare (from which we get the word voice), which means "to call". The word means literally to call on (as in to call on, or summon spirits). Few listeners can fail to notice that he relies heavily upon self avowed musical worshipers of darkness, to identify his product, and given his admission in "Beyond Babylon©", he cannot genuinely feign ignorance of the connection between the spiritual source and effect of music. Evil music has evil effect.
A song titled "Right Now©", written and performed by the popular band Van Halen®, which broke onto the commercial music scene with such demonically inspired songs as "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love©" and "Running With the Devil©", serves as the identification for Doug Hudson's show "The Founding Fathers Hour". There are other songs which are or have been used for commercials such as "People Are Strange©" (Used to promote the tape set he sold about broadcaster Steve Quayle), and another "Riders on the Storm©" used to sell a another tape set. These songs were written by the Satanist Jim Morrison of "The Doors®". One can only wonder what spiritual effect James was hoping to achieve in his commercials and identifications by his use of such music in what he presents as a "Christian" ministry, but one need not speculate however as to his purpose in doing so. It all comes back to the same basic goal, the desire to make money.
One interesting commercial uses the theme song to a movie about a violent drug dealer from the 1970's entitled "Shaft©". Whether this is a joke about "Shafting" his customers or not I cannot say, but there is an interesting signature involved in that particular choice nonetheless. Another commercial James Lloyd has produced to sell merchandise uses the song "Spirit in the Sky©" written by Norman Greenbaum, (which is used as background music for Chapter 14 of this report, Another Jesus, Another Spirit, Another Gospel) which has the lyric:
"Never been a sinner I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He's gonna set me up with
The spirit in the sky"
1st John 1:10
"If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
One might excuse the unscriptural rantings of a musician who has not claimed the mantle of "prophet" as an expected occurrence, but to use music which has a lying spirit behind it to sell product, is unconscionable for a man who admittedly understands the invocative power of music and who claims the high calling, of being a teacher the word of God. Using the work of enemies of the gospel for the sake of financial gain is a spiritual signpost of which most should be aware, but there is another more subtle musical indication of the spirit which drives James Lloyd and Christian Media Network.
James Lloyd regularly uses New Age music to not only sell merchandise, but to identify his programs and network as well. Most of the New Age music he uses for these purposes, comes from a Swiss Harpist named ANDREAS VOLLENWEIDER. Vollenweider is a very popular New Age musician with very occultic leanings. His works include albums glorifying magic, the fallen angels, and Witchcraft. His album Caverna Magica (SK 37827) ("The Magic Cave") is a favorite of James Lloyd, and the title track was chosen as the "theme" for Tom Collins' show "The Secret Place". Another Lloyd favorite is the album Kryptos (SK 60237) (the word meaning hidden), which refers to the occult (the word occult itself means that which is hidden.) The fact that James hides the occult sources of his prophetic "inspiration" is poignant.
This reference in his occultic choice of theme music to things cryptic is comical to me, as James Lloyd has published libelous lies against me in a piece he titled "The Hidden Things of Dishonesty". It would appear that he has dishonestly hidden the occultic origins of his "prophetic" leanings, but that is in keeping with the hypocrisy he practices on a regular basis. The pagan worship of the Moon is also a key component of Vollenweider's works, and he has titled several of his compositions in honor of the orb in songs with the titles Lunar Pond, Water Moon, La Lune et L'Enfant (The Moon and the Child), Down to the Moon (the title track of album (SK 42255), and Moon Dance, which he used for years as his "Christian Media Network® Theme Music". Lloyd now uses another Vollenweider piece to identify Christian Media Network.
Besides using Vollenweider's New Age music for commercials, he has also chosen it for use as the theme for Stewart Best's Borderlands Show, and a cut titled "Forest Folks" (speaking of the demonic entities called elves or fairies), as the signature piece for his occult program "Exotica", which he liked for it's subliminal similarities to the word "Erotica", which refers to pornography. Among other titled works of Vollenweider we have: "Behind the Wall -- Under the Tree" (SK 37793), "Under the Trees of Hope" (which refer to Wiccan practices), "Cosmopoly" (SK 89096) (pictured sporting an occult symbol), "The Glass Hall (Choose the Crystal) THE PLAY OF THE FIVE BALLS - The Five Planets", "Hermes' Wedding", "return of the heroes" and "the heroes' telling", which refer to New Age fortune telling (Crystal), and Nephilim/Demon/Planet worship.
These "spiritual signatures" may not seem to be a big deal to you, but if any of those folks who have for one reason or another become part of James Lloyd's "Enemies List" were using New Age music for the purpose of persuading you to buy a product (or a the subject matter of a radio program for that matter), he would be all over them, denouncing the same dark spirits he now uses himself to sell merchandise. For those of you who may not see any danger in this practice, I invite you to follow the links below, to acquaint yourself with the exigencies of the subject.
The teaching of prophecy which is embedded with eastern mysticism and the occult, and sold for money using the subliminal properties of New Age music and the spirits with which it is associated, carries an unmistakable signature. The result that the many listeners whom James Lloyd regards as "Morons" and "Idiots", eagerly accept his teachings uncritically as inspired by God, begs the question:
Was Nostradamus speaking of James Lloyd when he wrote the following quatrain, and if so, is it prophecy?
From the enslaved people, songs, chants and demands,
The princes and lords are held captive in prisons:
In the future by such headless idiots
These will be taken as divine utterances.
(Century 1, Quatrain 14)
Matthew 7:22-23: "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
Perhaps James Lloyd will argue with Christ on that day, claming that our Savior is "nitpicking" when he is told that he must answer for his deeds. The sad truth is that we will all be judged by the standards which we use to judge others.
Matthew 7:2: "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."
Playing word games to avoid culpability, when repentance is is the only action which will remove the stain of sin, will rest bitterly in the pit of the soul for all eternity, for those who refuse and resist the conviction of the Holy Spirit in the day of their transgression. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth on judgment day, when they see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and discover that they themselves have been thrust out.
"They that will not be counseled, cannot be helped. If you do not hear reason she will rap you on the knuckles."
