Today’s High Holy Day Main Lectionary Reflection, Dr. Stephen Michael, Primace OCC
Lectionary Text this great feast of Tabernacles at the ancient Piast strongholds of my family and of our True Israel Christendom nation(EMPIRE, multiple confederated states). We climax on the day of fire which is November 1st (a day celebrated by all Poles to Honor their believing ancestors). For the church we have our Didascalia Calculation Calendar which lands on various days of the modern calendar as we do every year witnessing the glory as we do the pilgrimage assemblies with the rest of the ecclesia.
The words of Christ herein highlight that PERFECT Unity we all have in Him in His glory. He said His direct Apostles have that same glory and will be in the same place He has as one body, in the same way that He is one with the Father, and remaining one body eternal in heaven and on earth.
He connects His senior Apostles with to the rest of His one body the reigning elite ecclesia. It says in many places that the rest of the disciples who hear the word second-hand often weren’t able to transmit the gifts of the Spirit by the laying on of hands. It says Christ gave the Apostles the major power to do various miracles. However, there is a variety of gifts still all will get if truly are converted, do the Daily liturgy that Christ endorsed, etc (or other compliant orderly rites). The Apostles are the ones who heard it direct from the Creator. They judge now from twelve thrones which it says they rule from over the 12 tribes. We also have thrones with our name on it up there. He speaks ordaining more power first through His senior Apostles who He ordained to share direct contact with Him, secondly to the rest of His Disciples. Sometimes the Apostles had to come to do the Spirit baptism, when only the water baptism was done by the disciples (see: Acts 8:12-17). God does the electing through His senior officials, as it says they go up according to rank in their orders.
I was blessed to have a teacher from age 12 forward who was taken up to heaven 17 times and taught his main message on the book of Ezekiel, the tabernacle and the 4 Cherubim of Glory, and the Seraphim, which are the 4 gospel symbols, the main 4 ensign symbols of our true Israel nation of covenant Christendom. He heard the word (exact text of Scriptures) spoken directly from the throne of YAHWEH and shown these thrones it talks about in the Scriptures, and the 4 Divine Cherubim of Glory (who are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb CHRISTIANS in Rev 5:9, and says there are hundreds of thousands of them on the throne, in the throne and around the throne.) It is a key teaching of the apostles which got watered down over the years and forgotten. However it was preserved in ancient art like this copy of the Book of Kells, artwork of the Orthodox Culdees. They didn’t worship icons, but they didn’t have TV back then some some would try lighting a candle by these story telling icons and show an expression of interest as they studied and meditated on God’s glory, which it says are commanded to be in artwork, as we have laid out here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/orthodoxchurchnl-orthodox-church-of-the-culdees/does-your-church-have-good-biblical-artwork-and-decorations-as-commanded-by-god/1713819608728723/ .
However although these symbols are found in nearly every ancient sanctuary (as is commanded, shown in the above article) the teachings on them have been forgotten. So YAHWEH brought up my Elder Teacher Pastor (and Bishop) Leroy Crouch who was taught DIRECTLY from YAHWEH these truths how to apply it to our personal lives. These practical every-day teachings for victory in every situation through using your 4 faces, was the cornerstone of his teachings for about 35 years. Many of these were recorded onto cassette, (a few thousand teachings are now being digitized so they should be available on mp3 and CD. Each message in his teaching University being very unique and jam packed with explosive anointed truth. Nearly every sentence being Divine word, very profound with much gold weight of victory. A great wealth of knowledge to be gleaned in a practical way and yet mainstream applicable way for the absolute victory of the church true Israel people of God, His one body.)
Main Lectionary Text, High Holy Day of Tabernacles 2018, 1st day of the feast.
“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.”
