The true story of James Lloyd doing business as Christian Media Network

False Prophecy: It's ALL About THE MONEY!

 

 

 



Deuteronomy 18:21-22

 

And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. 

 

That James Lloyd has used his commercial vehicle Christian Media®, to exploit the fears of ignorant Christians is a thing established. That he has regularly uttered false prophecy is documented. That James Lloyd is a hypocrite and a liar is evident in his own words and deeds. That he uses every wicked device of Satan to attack those that would stand in the way of his covetous practice, has been and will continue to be dealt with in this report. But before we continue to examine his history in chronology, we must examine his most recent false prophecy, as it is quintessential James Lloyd, illustrating every shade of deception and sophomoric duplicity for which he is known.

 

After the recent transparent exploitation of the fears of his listeners as regards the fraud of "Planet X" (which was "predicted" to appear first in the fall of 2002 and more recently in the month of May, 2003) and which was exposed in the last installment of this report, (Chapter 14) James has used his now familiar tactic of attempting to change the focus of his followers. This he did (only temporarily) by re-issuing his familiar "prediction" that America is about to be destroyed by a nuclear attack, and that his followers had better buy his long term storage food, books, and "inspired" tapes to be "ready" for what is about to occur. This has prompted some to dub him "Chicken Lloydal" (after the lead character in a children's book 'Chicken Little' who was constantly heard to exclaim 'The sky is falling, the sky is falling...')

 

Indeed, readers may remember a similar incident five years ago, recounted in Chapter 1 of this report.

 

At that time, he made bold statements that New York city, Miami Florida, Los Angeles California, and Rome Italy would be destroyed on July 4th 1998. "Thus sayeth the Lord" he said as he raked in the cash. Buy our books and tapes and survival gear. Get yer Christian Media® newspaper, read all about it. Hurry, hurry, hurry! He told his listeners that he would go off of the shortwave radio if he was wrong (his shortwave time has increased 2,200% since then) and told them that they should "turn away" from him if he proved to be a false prophet. He told them to leave their families and sell their goods, break all ties with the past. He was outwardly repentant for almost a week, but when it was over, he started up right where he is now, telling folks that "God told me to continue". When some who had gone to live in the wilderness without homes or jobs because of James Lloyd's "prediction were hoping for prayer intercessionfrom James, he announced "I'm not going to worry about it..."

 

This is reminiscent of the time Oral Roberts told his followers that "...God told me if I don't raise (I don't remember exactly how many ) million dollars, he's going to take me home." As if God was somehow an extortionistor a kidnaper, and would kill Roberts if the ransom was not paid.

 

Like Oral Roberts, James Lloyd is playing God's faithful for suckers. And like Oral Roberts, James Lloyd will have to answer for a sin he will not repent of in this lifetime.

 

The Logic of his "Prophecy":

 

Like an old record that has been forgotten by a new generation of fans, the "prediction" carried most of the old tunes. The month of June was reported as a "time of concern" because James had the savvy marketing sense to try and tie many of the predictions of Jesus Christ given in the gospel of Luke, the 17th chapter, in his sermon delivered on the Mount of Olives, to some events that could reasonable be expected to be seen in that month. In that discourse Christ stated:

 

17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

 

From this portion of Luke 17, James proudly and piously proclaimed that "This indicates that the (Great) Tribulation will begin in the month of June" because he reasoned " there are more marriages in the month of June than any other month, which correlates with Luke 17:27 which says 'they married wives, they were given in marriage', as well as verse 28 which says 'they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;'..." which he further reasoned must speak of the month of June, because according to James Lloyd "...June is the biggest month for home purchases (Luke 17:28 "...they bought, they sold...") and the time most crops are planted (Luke 17:28 "...they planted...") and the time when the most building permits are issued (Luke 17:28 "...they builded...").

 

This of course ignores the fact that in the Southern hemisphere, they build and plant in the month of January, or the fact that they do build year round in the Northern hemisphere, and plant many crops at other times throughout the year worldwide (depending upon the crop). He also ignores the fact that people have been getting married in every month of the year for millennia. These facts are of course trivialized and ignored by James Lloyd, so as to dovetail with his commercial agenda. Now even though James Lloyd maintains that a "Close Flyby" of the planet Mars caused the destruction of Planet Earth in Noah's time, which he cavalierly states was not in the month of June, but in either in the month of March (The Ides of March), or in the month of October, he still held to this " June scenario". This inconsistency is ignored by Lloyd, and goes unnoticed by his followers.

 

This June 2003 attack upon New York City he assured his spellbound followers, was backed up by his doctrine of "Prophetic Parallels" , in which he maintains (in a loosely associated form of chain logic) that;

     

    Since America represents modern day Babylon as described in chapter 18 of the book of Revelation;

     

    And since the Neo Babylonian Empire fell while there was a party going on;

     

    And since there was a party being given in the honor of American President George W Bush in New York City (actually a Republican Party fundraiser) on the 24th of June *;

     

    That just as in the fall of the neo Babylonian Empire (described in the Old Testament book of Daniel, chapter 5), when the then King Belshazzar was having a party, drinking himself drunk with wine from the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God in Jerusalem; and was killed that very night by Darius the Mede who conquered Babylon at the same moment...

     

Well it's as clear as mud isn't it? It just had to follow that the date James Lloyd had picked must be the time God will begin the Great Tribulation! *(once again James missed the boat. The fundraiser was on the 23rd, but what bearing does fact have on fiction anyway) Of course, God was not as impressed with Lloyd's logic as James was himself, and the date passed without so much as an angry word from Osama Bin Ladin or Al Quaida.

 

Darius the Mede also remained quiet in his tomb, and there was no hint of James Lloyd going to New York to decipher any graffiti on the walls of New York City either. To illustrate the point more simply, nothing destructive of the magnitude predicted, happened on that date. Just the same, James commanded that his followers clothe him with scarlet, placed a chain of gold around his neck, and made a proclamation that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom*. He maintained that July the 4th was the date God had originally given him anyway, and that those who held James to the same standard to which he has held others, are just "Morons".

 

(* With apologies to the Prophet Daniel.)

 

For the next week and a half preceding the 4th of July, 2003, James continued to press forward with his "prophecy" which demanded that New York City be destroyed, even as he paved the way for his next deception, which involved stating that there are "some Morons" (He likes that word) who are ready to denounce him as a false prophet on July 5th "if" he is wrong. He was of course speaking of a small group of believers who had joined me and others at Clifty Falls State Park who assembled in defiance of his prediction that we would all be dead before then. As if to scare off any who might attend, James pronounced that "You had better stay close to home on that weekend", fearing that some of his faithful followers might be "tainted" by the truth. A few who attended the event, heard the warning and ignored it, to their benefit. As the "big day" approached, James announced that he would close up his compound on July 4th, and ordered his on site employees Doug Hudson and Francis Steffan (who had both it seems, made the wise choice of avoiding any on air mention of the subject altogether), to stay home "for their safety", and "courageously" ran the network all by himself.

 

He continued to maintain that he was confident that America would be destroyed that weekend, although somehow he forgot to cancel the commercials which ask the listeners to send what would according to Lloyd's predictions, soon be worthless Federal Reserve Notes for products which would not be delivered due to the breakdown of the American infrastructure that weekend. It is lucky for James that he forgot, because now he still has an income stream as he begins a third "Five Year Plan" of false prophecy. The following week, James began Part Two of what some critics have called "the Stutter-step", making statements such as "we see some very interesting things we had not noticed before" and making little reference to the 4th of July false prophecy. One could almost hear him say "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain..." Indeed, James Lloyd would have his listeners believe that he himself is the "Great and Powerful OZ© of Bible prophecy."

 

There is a growing chorus of his former supporters who have come to the realization that he has been conning them for years by "tickling" their ears, as he fondled their wallets. Not only has he lost many listeners, but he has also lost two paying network hosts and a shortwave outlet (which gave up more than $4,000 a month) who peered behind the curtain of deception, due to his proud, pompous, prevarication regarding his Feigned Prophecy.

 

As did the small man who pretended to be the mighty Wizard of OZ© when he was threatened with discovery, James began pulling all the levers and pressing all the buttons he could reach in a frenzy of bluff and bravado, in order to redirect the attention of his subjects, resorting to another regular diversion tactic, the personal attack. More than two months after he was shown to be a fraud, he continued to aggressively maintain that he is in the will of God, even as he shows contempt for Him and His word.

 

On one of his websites he published the following in August of 2003:

 

"One of the most perplexing aspects of prophecy is in the area of timing. Readers familiar with the Christian Media ministry know that we have aggressively sought to decipher the current events with specificity, and to place them in a linear predictive context. To put it another way, I believe I know and understand significant aspects of the times and the seasons in which we live.

 

I further believe that I am called to publicly witness of the immanency of the fulfillment of the ancient prophecies of Daniel and Revelation. In this regard, I have repeatedly prophesied concerning the timing of the initialization of various cycles of prophetic activity – including the start of the Tribulation period, the inauguration of the Antichrist, and much much more.

 

In recent years, one of the staples of my prophetic platform is the belief that the government of the Antichrist would rise to a new plateau of power in 2003. Furthermore, I have repeatedly predicted that this would occur in mid-year with a special focus on the 4th of July.

 

Although the 4th has just passed by without an obvious fulfillment of this prophecy, I am not ready to repudiate the supernatural understanding that brought me to make these pronouncements.

 

In fact, I still contend that 2003 is the year in which these enormously important events will occur.

 

Thus, while blind critics continue to attack and criticize my prophetic mission using unscriptural traditions to support their own lack of prophetic discernment, I press forward with the knowledge I firmly believe that God has given me.

 

In the realm of prophetic fulfillment, scriptural precedent makes clear that prophecy is frequently fulfilled without a broad consensus recognizing the truth as it occurs."

 

 

It is truly amazing that he can utter such things in the face of the obvious facts, without the slightest hint of personal embarrassment or shame!

 

He mentions being "perplexed".

 

1st Corinthians 14:33 "For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." Notice that the scriptures tell us plainly that our God is not a God of confusion. Certainly, God is not perplexed. He says "I believe I know and understand significant aspects of the times and the seasons in which we live." Yet He has not only prophesied falsely, BUT he has by his own admission continued to "press forward" Then he has the nerve to criticize those believers who have pointed out the obvious as "blind critics using unscriptural traditions" This statement is completely unsupported. You must either take his word for it (as in his false predictions) or reject it. To which "unscriptural traditions" does he refer? Then he has the nerve to make the statement: " prophecy is frequently fulfilled without a broad consensus recognizing the truth as it occurs." as if the destruction he has "Prophesied" has occurred in "truth" and that there is no "broad consensus" which recognizes the fact that New York City STILL STANDS! Do you suppose that America is really in ashes and we all just don't realize it because we have not reached the proper conclusion?"

 

Such sophistry and intellectual word play can only convince the weakest minded individuals who have been taken in by his duplicitous scam. To maintain that we just don't realize that the prophecy has been fulfilled is the saddest sort of desperation, and an indication of the inability of the man to recognize the simplest truth:

 

HE WAS WRONG! New York City is still there! America is still here! And James Lloyd is still selling his wares to the foolish and weak of mind and faith.

 

That he has received his "understanding" from a "supernatural source is not disputed. The question is, which supernatural source told him to prophesy in the name of the Living God a thing which has not happened? The spirit of God does not lie. The spirit of Mammon however will say anything to make a buck! How then can James Lloyd make such claims?

 

The BIBLE tells us in Romans 1:28-30:

 

"And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things..."

 

It's all about the Money!

 

Cutthroat Christianity.

 

Christian Media® is a ministry with an agenda, and that agenda is MONEY. Even by James Lloyd's own admission, Christian Media® is run as a business. The regular barrage of commercials and advertisements for Christian Media® products attest to that, not to mention the fact that James Lloyd is suing this author under his registered dba ("Doing Business as Christian Media Network"). As many other competitive business owners do, James Lloyd practices the same type of no holds barred style that he employed in his "headhunting" days. It is borne of the idea that in business, all is fair (as they say of love and war), and that it is just a good sharp business practice to personally attack those whom you feel are a threat to your financial success.

In the regular commercial business environment, this Cutthroat practice is an accepted practice, however when propagating the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are admonished to put away the ways of the flesh, and operate in the power of the Spirit of God. Nowhere are we told to make venomous statements about those who are in the faith, nor even against our enemies. James Lloyd however eschews such scriptural wisdom, preferring to practice his own brand of Cutthroat Christianity, which allows any device that might prevent any ministry not associated with (or controlled by) Christian Media® from receiving what he considers "his share" of donations from listeners who support various ministries.

 

Simply put: It's all about the MONEY!

 

This more than any other reason is the impetus that drives the vile personal attacks he makes upon other ministries. This purpose (along with the desire to take his listeners attention away from the fact that he profited handsomely from his false prediction of a June-July destruction of America) moved him to once again angrily denounce me and those who help the Beacon of Truth stay on international shortwave radio. As the month of July waned, he choose to redouble his efforts in attacking me on his radio "show" the Apocalypse Chronicles© on July 28th of 2003. The following is from a post from the internet forum located at http://www.network54.com/forum/247519 (Now closed due to a threat which I suspect came from James Lloyd).

"Craig Wormwood. That's what James was calling you today with a bunch of other choice words. Then he had to mention that somebody's supporting him and was (referring) to your supporters as scum."

 

It's all about the MONEY!

 

It interesting to note that the thing that bothered him the most is the fact that people are supporting the Beacon of Truth broadcast financially. The fact that there is money out there somewhere that is not going into his pocket infuriates him. In his uniquely "charming" way, he reviled and threatened those whom he would woo to his cause, throwing a "temper tantrum like a spoiled child, and he did this as (he would describe himself) a Christian Leader. This of course is a very unmanly, immature response for one who seeks financial support, but given James Lloyd's perception that "everybody is an idiot" and that "people are morons" it should come as no surprise to anyone.

 

It is also interesting to note that the word used in the bible and translated into the English word "wormwood", means bitter or bitterness. And though James Lloyd maintains that I am bitter or have bitterness about me, he is the one who bitterly attacks me (and anyone else who might stand in the way of his commercial agenda), and shows every indication in his words and deeds to be a bitter individual. Such hypocrisy is his trademark. This behavior of seeking contention to divert attention from one's own sin, is of course contrary to the teaching of the Bible.

Examine the book of Hebrews chapter 12, verses 14-15:

 

"Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble [you], and thereby many be defiled;"

 

Despite the command of God's word, James Lloyd has shown no fear of defiling his listeners with his venomous words and actions, seeking unholiness, conflict and acrimony instead of peace, as the root of his personal bitterness grows deeper in search of the financial elixir with which it is watered. That elixir, is The MONEY of his victims.

 

When the 4th of July passed without incident, rather than repent openly (as he did in 1998, albeit in insincerity), James maintained that he was in good standing with God after uttering a lie, and he reasoned that he still has a "window period of opportunity" of 4 months before his "prophetic understanding" could be called into question. This is because of the date of birth date of his "candidate for the office of antichrist", is November 14th, 2003, and because at that time the man he has chosen will be "too old" to be Antichrist (for more details on this "logic", the reader is invited to examine Chapter 13 of this report). This is all presented as bible prophecy, without a shred of scripture to support it. That James Lloyd has a "window period of opportunity" is clear. An enormous opportunity to sell all the things of the flesh: more books, more tapes, more Applegate Ranch® Beef Jerky, more storage food, more water filters...more merchandise.

 

It is interesting to note, that as James continued to issue a false prophecy in the name of the Lord, that he criticized others for not doing the same, as if he could goad others into sharing culpability in false predictions and false prophecy. He repeatedly said that others were afraid of being called false prophets (a fear which James so obviously overcame years ago), intimating that he somehow had courage that others lacked in making false predictions. Rather than trying to tempt others to join the Christian Media® Chorus of false prophecy, he should be reading the Old Testament book of Ezekiel.

 

Ezekiel Chapter 13

 

13:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD; 3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

 

13:4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.

 

13:6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. 7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? 8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. 9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD"

 

It should be clear to anyone who fears God, that the danger is not a matter of being called a false prophet, but a matter of being cast into Hell forever for leading God's people astray. James Lloyd not only utters false prophecy, but makes a tidy profit on top of it. When anyone mentions that fact, James Lloyd has complained that they are simply "jealous" of the wealth God has "blessed" him with. Let him have his wealth. His true reward is yet to come.

 

James also read another scripture ( 2nd Kings chapter 20) to "prove" that a "prophet of the Lord" can speak a thing that does not come to pass and not be a false prophet.

 

In 2nd Kings chapter 20 we are told beginning in verse 1:

 

1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live. 2 Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying, 3 I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. 4 And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the LORD came to him, saying, 5 Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD. 6 And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

 

After reading the preceding scripture in an attempt to ally himself with Isaiah, James then asked his followers the question " Hezekiah did not die. Does that make Isaiah a false prophet"? ( The implication being that if Isaiah did it, it was OK for James to do so.) Of course, this is a false premise from a false prophet. The situations are radically different. In the case of Isaiah and Hezekiah, the King wept and repented, and God had mercy on him and sent the prophet back to him before he had even left the building.

 

At no time did James Lloyd recant and state that God was going to hold back judgment. At no time did James Lloyd make any mention that the "prophesied" destruction of America on July 4th (or June 24th, depending upon which false prophecy you would like to examine ) would be cancelled. In fact, rather than recant, James continued to state how confident he was in the "scenario" right up to the last moment. There was also no repentant heart and no weeping on the part of the American people. We also saw no repentance on the part of America in 1998 when James Lloyd issued the identical false prophecy 5 years ago.

 

It is notable that, prior to either event (speaking of the June 24th 2003 non event as well as the 4th of July 2003 false prophecy), he began back pedaling saying that a prophet (maybe he meant profit) of the Lord could speak falsely and still be in the good graces and will of the God that cannot lie, (Hebrews 6:18, Numbers 23:19) and "going once more to the well" of Deuteronomy Chapters 13 and 18 which describe him as a false prophet, to prove that he is not. This incongruous action is a regular technique of James Lloyd, to tackle scripture which plainly indicts his words and deeds, by placing a "spin" on it to exculpate himself, to keep his benefactors sending their hard earned cash down the Christian Media® rat hole. James Lloyd continues to speak lies in the Name of the Lord God so that he can continue to heap together treasure for himself for the last days, picking the pockets of his hapless victims as they stand mesmerized by his pretzel logic.

 

Perhaps he should have started in the book of James Chapter 5. In verse 1, the apostle James says:

 

"Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth"

 

Instead of examining that scripture, James began reading Deuteronomy chapter 13, verses 1-3

 

13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

 

James states that since this refers to "prophets" leading people to follow after other Gods that this scripture doesn't apply to him (although there is the question of his teaching another Jesus, another Spirit, and another Gospel. He addresses this portion of scripture, because verse 5 in the same chapter tells us to put a false prophet to death, which would certainly cramp James' style:

 

13:5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.


James also dug up one of his other 5 year old excuses in Deuteronomy chapter 18, which he states speaks of Jesus Christ, as opposed to himself, stating that it is "unfair" to hold James to the same standard as Jesus Christ. We know this scripture speaks of Christ, because the word "Prophet" is capitalized (as in a proper name), who was to be raised from among the seed of Abraham ("from among their brethren"), which clearly speaks of the Son of God.

 

Deuteronomy 18 does speak of Jesus Christ in verses 18 and 19:

James began to read;

 

18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

 

Then he stopped reading. Why did he not read the rest of the scripture? Because the rest of that scripture indicts James Lloyd as a false prophet! Verses 18 and 19 do speak of Jesus Christ. Verses 20 through 22 however, speak of another type of prophet. Please note that in those verses, the word "prophet" is not capitalized. And in fact, if these verses did speak of Christ, they would speak of him as a lying prophet, with a lying spirit in his mouth, which could not refer to Christ, the Son of God.

 

Deuteronomy 18:20 says:

 

18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

 

Notice please, that this scripture speaks of two different groups of prophets; Those that speak in the name of the God of Israel, OR those who speak in the name of other gods. James also claimed that Jesus Christ himself "seemed to disagree" with this scripture! Did Jesus really disagree with the Old Testament? This is exactly what James Lloyd said on international shortwave radio without so much as a hint of shame. This statement (along with the scripture in Deuteronomy 18:20) should scare the pants off of James Lloyd, but he shows no hint of any fear of God or his word.

People may be afraid to admit that James Lloyd is a false prophet. After all, what if he is giving the message that God "told" him to deliver? We don't want to anger God by opposing a prophet he has sent do we? How do we know that God didn't tell him that America would not be destroyed on July 4th 2003 (or June 24th for that matter?) How can we be so certain that James Lloyd is a false prophet? We need only read the next 2 verses to be sure.

 

Deuteronomy 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. 

 

This is about as plain as the English language gets in the King James Bible. If the prediction does not come to pass, it is false (a lie). As if things weren't bad enough for him already, it seems as though James Lloyd has become so desperate to divert attention from his most recent false prophecy of a July 4th 2003 destruction of America, that he has (according to his own website) invited the man he says is the "Antichrist" to share the microphone with him.If you doubt the truth of this statement, you can ask James Lloyd himself. One of James Lloyd's own website published the following:

 

"In an exclusive radio interview with James Lloyd on The Apocalypse Chronicles© radio broadcast, Dr. Boutros-Ghali has stated that what is needed to insure world peace is a "radical" change in the way the United Nations approaches international affairs... The wide ranging interview is scheduled for repeated broadcast today on The Apocalypse Chronicles."

James Lloyd and Boutros Ghali

 

If this is true, James Lloyd has given over his network platform to the man who the bible calls "Death", who is described as the rider of the Pale horse in Chapter 6 of the book of Revelation, and who is without doubt the most wicked individual the world will ever see. Some observers have maintained that the interview was faked because of sound anomalies which are consistent with a recording technique called "dubbing", where a sound "clip" is inserted into another sound file, and edited to give the listeners the impression that the two audio were recorded during the same recording session. Some have insisted this as well stating that they have heard the same verbiage from Dr. Ghali without James Lloyd (that is to say, with another interviewer), and believe that James simply "fabricated" the interview. Others insist that the interview was genuine because of the tone James used in the interview with Ghali, saying that James "sucked up to" the man.

 

Regardless , few people who believe themselves to be Christians (apart from those whom he has blinded and hoodwinked) could doubt that James Lloyd's judgment is called into question by this capricious gambit. At the time this chapter was ready to publish, it was noted that James Lloyd has deleted any mention of the "interview" from his web site, and may decide to avoid discussing his association with Dr. Ghali altogether. (Editors note: Lloyd has packaged for sale and advertised the "interview" as of the date of this edit, August 31st, 2003) Perhaps part of the problem was that because according to James Lloyd's press release, Dr. Ghali spoke of a third iteration of the United Nations being needed. This of course is a "fly in the prophetic punchbowl" for James Lloyd, as this would make the fact that Dr. Ghali could not be the "8th Head" of the "Beast" as James Lloyd asserts, because they would have to start counting leaders of the new world governing body all over again.

 

As it is, Dr. Ghali was not the "6th head" of world government as James Lloyd maintains, but the 9th when we consider the 3 Secretaries General which were the heads of the entity that preceded the U.N. in that bodies predecessor, the League of Nations. They were Sir Eric Drummond, (later named Lord Perth), Joseph Avenol, and Sean Lester. The realization that his own Antichrist has contradicted James' prophetic overview, may infuriate Mr. Lloyd to the point where he decides to bury the taped interview in the same hole into which he has thrown his 2003 false prophecy. In either case, Lloyd has sought out the man he has maintained is the Antichrist, to share his "Christian" network broadcast. It is one thing to err, but yet another to run headlong into sin oblivious to the obvious hypocrisy of the situation. Watch for a James Lloyd Apocalypse Chronicles® Antichrist tape $et to be $old $oon!

 

2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 warns of such alliances:

 

6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people 17 "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,"

 

 

Covetousness: It's All About THE MONEY! 

 

James Lloyd is in contradiction not only of the scriptures and his interpretation of them, but has also given over his own radio outlet to the man he declares is the Antichrist! And this he does, to sell more tape sets and more product, to make more and more money!

 

The Unforgivable Sin

 

And yet there still seem to be people who believe themselves to be Christians who will defend this deceiver. Why is it so? It is because in part because they have been brainwashed by the Cult of Christian Media® into believing that they will anger God and blaspheme the Holy Spirit if they stand for the truth. This idea of exclusively committing the unpardonable sin by attributing the work of the Holy Spirit to the Devil is a notion that James Lloyd loves to pursue to frighten his followers away from questioning his spiritual authority. It is not unreasonable to assume that one could blaspheme the Holy Spirit by attributing the work of God to Satan, given the scripture we have in the New Testament book of Matthew chapter 12. We are told of Christ healing a man by casting out a demon from him. Upon hearing of it the Pharisees exclaimed "This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils."

 

In verses 31 and 32 of that chapter, Christ said:

 

12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

 

 

This blaspheming of the Holy Spirit is unforgivable. However it is not just as James Lloyd maintains, attributing the work of the Holy Spirit to the Devil, but also the attribution of the works of the spirit of Satan to God. When a man steals, and lies, and cheats others and claims that he is doing wickedness in the power of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is blasphemed. It is not so much that claiming that the works of God done by his servants are of the Devil is in and of itself unforgivable, as it is a matter of the fact that to be so far away from God, takes so much effort of the believer in ignoring the conviction of God's Spirit, as to be sold out to the desire to maintain their innocence at any cost. And it is justified in the mind of the "believer" to the degree that they cannot allow themselves to admit even to themselves that they are headed down the wrong path, and so they put the "pedal to the metal" Hell bent on their own destruction without a clue.

 

We see similar examples of this principal of doing wickedly under the cover of the cloak of being moved to do so in the power of God's Holy Spirit in the book of 1st Samuel. We are told in that chapter that the priest Eli had two sons who were also priests (1st Samuel 1:33) who blasphemed the Holy Spirit of God.

 

We are told of their transgressions in the 2nd chapter of 1st Samuel beginning in verse 12:

 

2:12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD. 2:13 And the priest's custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand; 2:14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither. 2:15 Also before they burnt the fat, the priest's servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw. 2:16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force. 2:17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.

 

 

It is clear in this passage that the two men were bullying the Lord's people in a "strong arm" fashion into disobeying the word and law of God. The people were afraid to disobey the priests wicked commands for fear of the Lord. Hophni and Phinehas, Eli's sons used their position as priests to mistreat God's people, using the authority God had given them to intimidate the people into transgressing God's law for their own personal gain. They did even more wickedly, in taking advantage of the daughters of Israel, claiming that they were doing God's will, knowing full well that the people feared them because they were operating under the authority God had given them, yet doing the works of the Devil.

 

In 1st Samuel chapter 2 verse 22 we read:

 

2:22 Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 2:23 And he said unto them, Why do ye such things? for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people. 2:24 Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: ye make the LORD's people to transgress. 2:25 If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall entreat for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them.

 

 

Notice that God had already decided to slay them. Their transgression was UNFORGIVABLE. These men used the fear the people had of God for their own personal gain, in effect, doing the works of Satan while claiming they were operating in the power of the Holy Spirit of God. When people such as James Lloyd lie and cheat others and slander God's people for his own selfish personal gain and pride, claiming the mantle and authority of God's Holy Spirit, calling themselves God's Prophets claiming that they do such things under the "anointing" of God's Spirit, have they not indeed blasphemed the Holy Spirit as did Hophni and Phinehas?

 

When James Lloyd seduces people and uses his claimed position as "a Prophet of the Lord" (even though there is ample evidence that he is a false prophet) to frighten them in a strong arm fashion into buying his merchandise and his doctrine by telling them that if they do not believe him they are disregarding a "word from the Lord", which enriches him in the process, is this not the same thing? When James Lloyd slanders anyone who opposes him by claiming that his opponents are "operating in the power of Satan", treating the servants of God spitefully, and boasting of himself as being "some great one" instead of being humble servants in the tradition of the prophets AND OUR SAVIOR, has he not done the same as the Pharisees that Christ warned us about in Matthew 12:31, who blasphemed the Holy Spirit which will NEVER be forgiven? Such people are condemned in their own words as they falsely accuses the brethren, covet gain, are lovers of their own selves, are boasters, proud, blasphemers, and exhibit every bad fruit the word of God has warned us against, and they do it claiming their sin is motivated by THE HOLY SPIRIT OF THE MOST HIGH GOD!

 

We are told of such men in the 3rd Chapter of 2nd Timothy

 

3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 3:9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

 

 

We are also told in the same chapter, of the fruits of the Spirit of God, and are warned against following such people as reject his ways:

 

3:10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 3:11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 

3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

 

 

Each of us has a choice as to how we behave as Christians. Sometimes we err, and must make amends to those whom we have injured, and we must also go to God for his forgiveness and leading. When we resist the conviction of the Holy Spirit and refuse to do that which is right out of pride, avarice, or any of the myriad of human failings, we slip backward in our journey.

 

For some, the conviction and consequence of sin compounds until we are forced to repent at a higher cost than would have been necessary had we surrendered sooner. Some resist that conviction, preferring to avoid accountability and recognition of culpability at all cost. Many people, being seduced by appeals of vanity from false prophets and deceivers who come in the name of Christ, will blindly follow those who call them unwittingly to the pit of Hell, because they refuse to embrace the truth.

 

When a believer is so intent upon being right rather than doing what is right, he will eventually cross that point of no return, and justify himself into the lake of fire, having maintained that his sin was motivated by God, thereby blaspheming the Holy Spirit, having forfeited his place a an heir of the promises of Christ Jesus. For such a man there is no hope.

 

It is precisely due to the antics of people such as James Lloyd and his followers, that the notion that America is under judgment is ridiculed by unbelievers. It is because of such people that Christ and those who would follow him are mocked. And when each such incident is made known through the prideful utterances of such high profile cult leaders as James Lloyd, those of us who have plead with family members and friends to turn to Christ lose credibility in the eyes of those to whom we preach. To bring shame to the cause of Christ because of their prideful avaricious behavior is perhaps their most dangerous behavior, and the thing for which they will be most heartily condemned.

 

Unfortunately, most who call themselves Christians are too lazy and complacent to study the Bible to "shew themselves approved", preferring to be spoon fed a version of God's word by others, who have a commercial agenda which poisons not only those who are seduced by their slick commercial "pitch", but those who might have heard a warning for the last days, but turn from it because they smelled the toxins of those charlatans, and turn away from the message completely.

 

Why Would a Man who KNOWS the Scriptures Allow Himself to be SO Deceived? It's ALL About THE MONEY! 

 

But how could God let those who call themselves Christians be so deceived as to follow a man who is as obviously as motivated by greed and the spirit of commercialism that he has uttered false prophecy for years? How could they be so ripe for deception? It is because they have not allowed God to cleanse their iniquitous desire to be initiated into the "Mysteries" of God's word. They desire to believe that they are a "chosen" elite so badly, that they ignore the plain truth that is all around them.

 

The bible warns us about these last days in 2nd Timothy 4:3-4:

 

" For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."

 

 

And because they love to be lied to by their chosen teachers, they will be sent strong delusion from God:

 

2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 tells us:

 

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 

 

2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 

 

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 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. 2:11 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. 

 

 

Our Savior promised us life everlasting if we follow His commandments and warned us about the eternal consequence of lying and loving to accept lies instead of truth.

 

Christ warned us about deceivers, liars, and false prophets in the last days in Luke 21:8:

 

"And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them."

 

 

Revelation 22:14;

 

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

 

 

This shows that it is equally dangerous to love a lie as to make a lie. If you love to be lied to, you cannot love the truth. The scriptures tell us that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Christ promises to reward those who overcome evil and to repay those who allow themselves to be overcome by evil in his final Revelation to the believer.

 

Revelation 21:7-8:

 

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
