Sacraments of the Gnostic Church
Summary: A series of free audio lectures orginally presented live on GnosticRadio.org. A detailed presentation of the rituals and stages of study in the Gnostic Church as founded by the universal Cosmic Christ. Our doctrine is science and religion at the same time. As science, it depends upon something superior, supreme, infinite, and para-scientific (which is very elevated and greater than the lower, vulgar knowledge) for the incarnation of the knowledge par excellence. ...
The way to heal ourselves and humanity through the balm of knowledge.
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)Â 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."
After Baptism, the period of Lent: the temptation and initiation of the human soul.
The inner meaning and importance of Baptism: the transmutation of sexual energy. Explains the esoteric meaning of water (mayim and schamayim) in the book of Genesis and the Gospels of Jesus.
Christ, rituals, and the requirements of the priesthood of the Gnostic Church.
An explanation of the seven sacred acts (sacraments) of the Gnostic Church: Baptism, Penance, Communion, Confirmation, Matrimony, Priesthood, and Extreme Unction. These rituals are visible in every religion in the world, and do not belong to one group or another, since they all emerge from the same source. Lecture quote: "In this course, we are going to explain the sacraments instituted since ancient times in the church of Christ, which has its latest roots in Egypt. Internally, the Holy Gnostic Church is situated in the superior dimensions. Yet, in this day and age, the Holy Gnostic Church has in the physical world a physical exponent in every Lumisial of our visible and invisible Gnostic organisations that form the gigantic Gnostic Movement. The Gnostic Church was instituted by the Master Jesus two thousand years ago in the Middle East, but is a church that has a history much longer than that. It is related with the mysteries of ancient Egypt that has its roots in Atlantis, which come from a Neptunian-Amentian epoch directly related with the World of Yesod, the fourth dimension and beyond. As you know, Gnosis is a Greek word for knowledge, and this doctrine of knowledge is related with the famous tree of knowledge of the book of Genesis. Many times in our lectures we point out the tree of life, which is a hieroglyphic within which we find the tree of knowledge, the mysterious Sephirah Daath. So it is good for you to have a graphic representation of the tree of life in order for you to understand what the Gnostic Church is. The Gnostic Church is related with the Sephirah Daath, which is in the middle pillar of the tree of life, and is interrelated with Tiphereth and Yesod. In order to understand what a sacrament is we have to understand the word itself. As you observe, the word âsacrament' comes from âsacred' and âamen': "Sacred Amen" - Sacraments.
The union of man and woman is a sacred bond, the most ancient and holy religious sacrament. Matrimony is "the state or condition from which the Divine Mother can act." Lecture quote: "Like all of the sacraments, the sacrament of matrimony is sacred (these two words - sacrament, sacred - come from a common source). This is why in all of the ancient religions and mystical traditions of humanity, matrimony or marriage has always been considered a religious act, a sacred act.Â That is why marriage has always been in the domain of the priesthood, not the government, until recent times, when marriage has become more of an economic factor. When we talk about the sacraments, what we are really discussing are sacred initiations or levels of instruction that the soul passes through.Â These sacraments have been instituted by the Gnostic Church, which has its primary domain in the realm of Daath (Hebrew for knowledge, which is that realm where the Father/Mother unite in order to create; this is the level of the Yab/Yum, the Father/Mother, the Elohim. From their sacred union, all creation is realized.Â Â The sacrament or sacred act of matrimony is a reflection of the union between the Divine Father and the Divine Mother, Shiva/Shakti, Abba and Aima. That union in the sphere of Daath is an act of sacrifice; it is an act of love.Â The sphere of Daath is synonymous with love.Â It is here where God and Goddess unite because of their profound love; the very substance of that union is love, and its result is love.Â The child, the son, Osiris, or Christ, is the very embodiment of the love of Father/Mother, Yab/Yum; so that son, that love, is Christ the Savior, the sacred force of pure, cognizant Bodhichitta, love. This is a form of love that is beyond the seven spheres below Daath.Â It is beyond the spirit (Chesed), the consciousness (Geburah), the will (Tiphereth), the mind (Netzach), the emotion (Hod), beyond energy (Yesod), beyond anything physical (Malkuth).Â This is a form of love that is incomprehensible to our mind, but is knowable through our heart.Â This is why the sacrament of matrimony is so sacred."
The initiation of the teenager into puberty and the sexual mysteries of the Gnostic Church. Lecture quote: "The sacrament of confirmation must be understood as the sacrament of initiation. This is because this sacrament should be administered during the time of adolescence where the sexual aspects of our life related with puberty are strongly affecting us."
