Holy Soul, Holy Body
“The priest is fully holy, including his body. Does one take bread and make it holy? Or the cup or anything drunk? Are they sanctified? If so, why not the body?”
(Gospel of Phillip)
First it must be said that according to the Holy Scriptures all who receive Messiah are ordained in sacred priesthood, a ‘royal priesthood,’ so this is speaking of us all, not just a select few whose ordinations and consecrations are according to manmade doctrines and dogmas, who have enshrined a corrupt priestcraft in contradiction to the teachings and message of Yeshua Messiah.Thus, understand, when you receive the Messiah, the anointing with the Holy Light and Spirit of God, you are completely holy, soul and body - your whole person and life, and from that blessedness and holiness, so you are able to bless and sanctify things, making them holy unto God, the True Light.
As we know, when the Holy Spirit was brought down into the waters of the Sacred Jordan, all waters were purified, sanctified and perfected, and so through baptism with water and the Spirit we are purified and sanctified, and made perfect in the Messiah, the Perfect Human Being - Human One of Light. Understand, just as the Holy Spirit transformed and perfected the waters, making them ‘living,’ so that Holy Light and Fire that is the Spirit of the Messiah, the Spirit of God (Ruach Elohim), transforms and perfects us, our soul and body, making us like unto Messiah Yeshua, a true image and likeness of the Eternal God (Yahweh Elohim). Just as the Spirit perfected the waters, so our blood and very flesh, and it becomes royal blood, royal flesh, and not just our subtle body, but our physical, material body as well.
If, indeed, you receive Messiah, the anointing with the Holy Light and Spirit, so you see with God, hear with God and feel with God, and you smell, taste and touch with God - the Spirit of Messiah, so your body is as the body of Messiah and God, your heart as the heart of Messiah and God, your mind as the mind of Messiah and God, your soul as the Soul of the Messiah, Soul of God. At first, perhaps, this is a matter of faith, unrecognized and unrealized, but this is to become knowledge, the truth, reality, of conscious union being realized and embodied - such a person is a gnostic, a ‘knower of God.’
Now in this the wisdom of our play with prayer weapons and the consecration of talismans, sacred objects, in our tradition, which are extensions of the body of light and physical body - the Body of Glory and Emanation of a Holy Apostle. Holy in soul and in body, the body of light and the flesh, so we may bring forth light and holiness through physical, material objects, extending blessings and empowerments through them to others. This is a noble sacred art, and a matter of skillful means here in this world, where our experience and reality is spiritual and material, and truly the spiritual and material cannot be separated from one another. But then, of course, the talismanic play with prayers weapons, sacred objects, is an integral part of the non-dual realization of the Absolute Oneness of God Most High, and the realization of the complete unity of heaven and earth in the Messiah; hence, Supernal Realization, the awareness that the Holy Light that is ‘above’ is everywhere here ‘below,’ and that in reality nothing exists other than God Most High, the Absolute Light.
Nothing exists apart from God. Do you understand? I pray this understanding dawns in you and that you might be perfect in the Word and Wisdom of God. Amen.
Now in this, perhaps, you may understand that we are, each and every one of us, and all of us together in Anointed Community, literally the ‘Body of the Messiah,’ right down to our very flesh and blood. If and when this is understood, you will understand the affirmation of Job: “From my flesh I will see God (Elohim)!”
In the person of Messiah Yeshua and the Magdalene this became true, and so also in us through Divine Grace! But then do know and understand that this proclamation goes much further, for when the Absolute Oneness of the Eternal God is realized, so truly in everything you will see God - you will know the kingdom of heaven within you and surrounding you on all sides. Already it does, it is just few have eyes to see it.
May God heal us of blindness and deafness so that we might see and hear the Truth and so be set free! Amen.
