esoteric christianity

This page is dedicated to the Esoteric Christian ministry of our church. We have other ministries to address other needs. They are listed in our navigation menu. This page, specifically goes into detail about why we are nothing like other contemporary Christian churches. We do not 'worship the master' nor do we engage in empty motions and words, but rather, we seek to embody the master's magick and live it in the flesh as anointed ones practicing the miracles of the master in the flesh. 

our church defined

What is a 'church'? Contemporary dictionaries give the definition as 'a building used for public worship', but they have misrepresented what the deeper esoteric meaning of a church actually is; that a church is a body of people. Specifically, the master Yeshua (aka Jesus) defined the church as "...the body of Christ, and members in particular." Corinthians 12:27. Our church includes bodies/groups of both followers of Yeshua/Jesus and also right-hand path polytheistic Pagans who truly embrace all divine beings. We recognize the capacity for light to dwell in all good people, therefore we are inclusive to all those who seek light and union with the divine who are tolerant of others with differing beliefs and levels of understanding.

What is "Christ"? Christ literally means, 'anointed one'. Let's explore this deeper. Jesus Christ means 'Jesus, the anointed'. So a church is a body of people, served by anointed individuals that seek to bring out the best in the people through personal example and by performing miracles among them. The church, collectively, is the body for the spirit of God to dwell and express divine light through.  "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are." 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 

What does it mean to be anointed? Most often, the term "anointed one" is used in the Bible to refer to a person who has received a special calling from God, and to be anointed is to be set apart, empowered, or protected. Most often, to be anointed one has been initiated and consecrated with oils to be set apart for the work in the ministry. This offers added protection against adversarial forces that seek to bring us down. To be anointed is to be empowered and armed with the full armor of God. “And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.” 2 Corinthians 1:21-22

The first anointing with oil was practiced by shepherds for their sheep, who were often plagued with parasites such as lice and other insects, which could even kill the sheep if the insects made their way deep into the sheep’s skin or ears. The shepherds would therefore pour oil on the sheep’s head, making it too slippery for the insects to crawl so they would just fall off. After this, anointing became a symbol of protection, empowerment, and blessing as we know it today. So to be anointed is to be crowned with the power to resist the plagues of darkness and parasitic evil spirits. “He allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their account, saying, ‘Touch not my anointed ones! Do my prophets no harm!'" 1 Chronicles 16:21-22

Could you be an anointed one? YES, anything is possible! But it's important to understand that the anointing must come by the laying on of hands from someone who is in authority to give that energetic transmission because touch carries with it an energetic vibration that brings a change upon the individual. If one has never received it, one cannot give it. If one is not worthy of it, one should not receive it, for to act in greater power comes with greater responsibility and should only be given to a worthy soul who has proven their merits. There are many who claim to be 'called of God' but if they have never received the transmission from an unbroken line of succession to a holy master, their authority comes from nothing. One cannot call and anoint oneself as it must be done by another. One should question a 'leader' who calls himself to power; that is a big red flag. A humble servant is 'chosen', by their merits, therefore many may feel called to the ministry, but only by meritocracy are the very best chosen. "For many are called, but few are chosen." Matthew 22:14 Furthermore, Jesus never told the disciples to 'lead' or 'govern', so beware of people aspiring to 'leadership' over others. However, he repeatedly admonished his disciples to SERVE and witness to the people, for every soul is sovereign that governs oneself.

Moreover, Jesus warned his disciples against assuming leadership or dominions of power over others. "But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.  But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." (Matt. 20:25-28).

And he warned them about accepting the titles of power and prestige often attached to leaders. These titles, and the honour that goes with them, are to be reserved for the most high, and the master: "But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. (Matt. 23:8-11).

In magickal practices and miracle working, only the worthy should officiate in certain rites for others. A novice who means well, may also harm others by using spiritual technology they don't fully understand. For this reason, as you become a disciple in the living Christ, aka a priest or priestess working in healing magick and protective magick etc, it may require that you prove yourself first to the people you serve. Show your merit in your daily lifestyle, thoughts and actions. One who is in possession of anointed energies should use caution in the disciples they choose. They will enhance the natural gifts of the disciple but also hold them more accountable for the magnification of those abilities in service to others. For if you are an anointed one, or one who embodies the power and protection of heaven, then you are responsible for the stewardship of the disciples you extend that power to. "Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure." 1 Timothy 5:22

What are the responsibilities of the anointed? Acts 10:38 reads, “And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” Jesus wasn’t the only anointed one.. The anointed one could have been anyone appointed by God to be set apart or to carry out a task. Those tasks include healing the sick, comforting those who need it, caring for the widow and orphan, serving and witnessing, casting out demons, teaching, and performing miracles, just to name a few.

Our church has a provable apostolic succession to Jesus Christ in the order of Melchizedek. Most 'Christian Churches' today do NOT have a provable succession to Jesus Christ. They have 'called themselves' and in doing so operate without true authority. This is why the esoteric element, miracles, mysteries, and magick are MISSING from their ministry. What good is a priest that cannot actually perform real magick? Many churches are set up as businesses with religious politics that funnel tithes to pay a 'leadership' that often neglects the needs of the people/church they are supposed to be serving. However many of these 'preachers' perform no actual magick among the people but rather operate as charlatans of light being inwardly ravening wolves who prey on the people rather than praying for the people. Although some ministers may have truly good intentions, and some may even help people generally, where does their authority come from? What are the true intentions of these organizations? Why are so many people actually traumatized by their interactions with those organizations rather than healed and helped? Many true followers of Christ are refugees from those organizations, having been harmed by unauthorized charlatans pretending to be 'called of God'.  Perhaps some truly dofeel the call, but who chose them? Many a self-proclaimed leadership has often emulated worldly models of authoritarianism and patriarchy, going well beyond the bounds of what Jesus taught and demonstrated.

We hope to bring deeper meaning to spirituality by reminding people that there are exoteric (outer) meanings and esoteric (inner) meanings. We are the first church of its kind in our day, ushering forth the great awakening and gathering of the tribes for a unified purpose to liberate people from their captivity of darkness and make them free with the magick of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to serve the people, to seek out and unite the righteous mages of our time, and to facilitate initiations to those showing merit. We aim to empower the church with real magick and valuable knowledge to aid in the victory over the spiritual battles we face as a human family. The real histories are hidden, and we were born into a world of illusions where powerful 'masters' create and govern the world we live in. Some of those masters are good, and some are evil. We believe magick should be used for righteous reasons such as those outlined by Yeshua, and never for evil purposes such as causing harm to another.
