Sacraments of the Gnostic Church 08 Sacrament of Priesthood.mp3

The office and duties of the Gnostic Priest of the order of Melchezidek, in contrast with Gnostic Priests (Simoniacs) who reject the authority and rules of Christ.

Lecture quote:

"The word priest comes from Greek "presbyteros," which means "an elder in a church." Those who devote themselves to the sacraments are the one who are called "priests," in other words, those who devote themselves to the practice, to the service or sacrifice of the sacred Amens. The sacraments of Priesthood relate to Tiphereth, which is the sixth Sephirah of the Tree of Life. It is related to the heart. These sacraments were instituted by Jesus Christ who relates to our Nous atom in the left ventricle of our heart. The Eucharistic Priesthood was instituted at the Last Supper. The first initiates who received the power of Eucharistic Priesthood were his apostles. After that, his apostles anointed other initiates. After his resurrection, Jesus said to his Apostles, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit [the three Amens, Kether, Chokmah, Binah, related to the first triangle of the Tree of Life], teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20) Thus, it is required in the Gnostic Church that all those who are to be ordained as priests or priestesses must undergo the previous sacraments and some years of studies of Kabbalah and Alchemy for their spiritual formation."

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Wherever we direct our attention, we spend creative energy. We can save creative energy if we divide attention, if we do not become identified with things, people, and ideas. When we become identified with things, people, and ideas, we then forget our Self and lose creative energy in the most pitiful way. It is essential to know that we need to save creative energy in order to awaken the consciousness, and that the creative energy is the living potential, it is the vehicle of the consciousness, it is the instrument in order to awaken the consciousness."
