The Lesser Orders of Priesthood

An expounding of revelation, by one faithful to No Gods.
New England - January 2016

INSOMUCH AS THE Parental and Academic Orders of Priesthood were revealed early unto Hoteph, these are the Greater Orders of Priesthood--and they do reflect that revelator's archetypes of the Eternal Mother and Eternal Father.

2.  Yea, and the Conjugal Order of Priesthood, which was later revealed unto Hoteph, is the Intermediate Order of Priesthood--and it reflects that revelator's archetype of the Eternal Lover.

3.  Indeed, the final archetypes of Hoteph the Revelator, being the Eternal Child and the Eternal Lover, must likewise be associated with the orders of Priesthood:  the Solitary Order of the Eternal Child, and the Secret Order of the Eternal Other.

4.  As these where not revealed unto Hoteph, they must be understood to be Lesser Orders of Priesthood

5.  ¶ As the Eternal Other represents the unknowable aspect of GOD--yea, that which is the reason for NO GODS to be worshiped--then none can be ordained to the Secret Order of Priesthood save those who have already passed into the grave.

6.  Yea, we cannot know which of the dead were found worthy of ordination to this Order; therefore, all who have died can be said to have been ordained, and may be invoked as intercessors into the unknowable mysteries by the living.

7.  Any who now yet live, even those passed temporarily into death, are unable to be ordained unto this Order; therefore, any who claim such are charlatans, liars, frauds and deceivers.

8.  ¶ Likewise as the Eternal Child represents the divine self, then all believers can be said to have been ordained to the Solitary Order of Priesthood.

9.  By the authority of this order, anyone may perform for one's self any the rite of Baptism or any rite of consecration or blessing; and in the absence of a Parental or Academic authority, a believer may perform for one's self any rite of Endowment.

10.  Yea, it is by the authority of the Solitary Order of Priesthood that a believer may ordain another to the Conjugal Order of Priesthood--and it is by that same authority that such an ordination may be rescinded.

11.  Behold, ordination unto this order is valid unto one's self only; none may not use the authority of this order to perform ordinances for any other person--faithful or otherwise.

12.  ¶ Behold, this is not a revelation, but an expounding of revelation.  Yea, it is not revealed unto any person, but is understood.

Concerning Perpetual Education

A lost revelation of Hoteph
New England - October 2014

LET THERE BE built among you Lyceums for the perpetual education of the faithful, and let none be turned away from their doors regardless of age, sex, race, gender, or creed; yea, any who wish to learn are welcome, for there is no higher purpose than the edification of self and of others. 

2. The pursuit of knowledge is wasted: It is too severely taxed so that those who are desirous of it are indebted for a lifetime unto moneylenders and governments; while those who are wealthy are content to merely purchase their accolades without endeavoring for enlightenment.  Wo unto the culture which engendered this! 

3.  Blessed be the nations which do not prevent free, unfettered access to knowledge.

Concerning Passionate Love

A lost revelation of Hoteph
New England - August 2014

I SHALL SPEAK unto you concerning the nature of that which is called love; yea, not concerning fraternal love, nor divine love, nor even the familial love—but I shall speak concerning passionate love.

2.  Neither Law nor Gospel commands that a believer should be bound by romantic love to a single, other person; neither are marriage and love bound one unto the other.

Concerning Taxation and Religion

A revelation from Caesar unto Hoteph.
New England - February 2013

BEHOLD, I AM Caesar, who was Emperor, and am now the guardian of the governments of the world; yeah, thou shalt give unto these governments that which is their due—in obedience, service, and taxes as is required by law.

2. The law of the land is superior to the laws of heaven where it concerns matters of the living—for it has been given unto humankind to be the master of itself, under kings, rulers, and magistrates of its own selection;

3. Yea, governments are ordained from on high to rule on behalf of the citizens of their nations; notwithstanding the right of a people to overthrow one’s own government for the sake of abolishing tyranny, oppression, corruption, and the like.

4.  The Church, which is any establishment of religion, being not a human being, has not any inalienable rights; it is subject in whole unto the law of the land in which it operates—which may differ in great detail from the law of the land in which it originated;

5.  And in that the organization of religion is subject unto the government of the land, the former has no power to make any demands of the latter, though the latter may restrict the former as it sees fit to best benefit the people.

6.  Let therefore the establishments of religion be removed from the places and institutions of government—accepting that those historical roots which each shares in common are not meant to be suppressed by this exhortation.

7.  Has it not been said that thou shalt render unto me, who is Ceaser, that which is mine, and unto Jove that which belongs to Jove? Yea, this concerns not only the difference between taxes and of tithing, but also all other resources which are available unto humankind.

8.  Government and religion shall maintain the separation which is demanded by this commandment—for this is mine, and that is Jove’s—and what is mine is mine for my purposes, and what is the Jove’s is His for His purposes.

9.  The establishments of religion can be a benefit unto humankind in the offering of moral education and guidance of a spiritual sort; they can also be of a detriment, inciting one nation unto war with another for the cause of conversion to one or the other’s religious tradition.

10.  The purposes of religion are not the same in this day as they were in mine own; no longer is it needed to provide answers to questions of nature, nor is it needed any longer to establish authority among the people—humankind had passed through its enlightenment to embrace science and politics;

11.  Religion is today needed for the encouragement of compassionate service, for assistance in child-rearing, and to provide continued education and discussion beyond primary, secondary, and post-secondary schools—

12.  Houses of religion are centers for the community to gather in peace and safety, and to share a common belief one with another.

13.  Yea, for some, libraries and universities are more like churches than chapels and cathedrals; this is not an abominations, but a sign of the evolution of human kind—and that which is due these establishments should also be paid in full.

Concerning Names

A lost revelation of Hoteph.
August 2014 - Manchester, New Hampshire

DO NOT PRESUME that the name by which you are known, or even the name which you are called, is your one, true, and real name; such belongs to the province of that which is greater then humankind—yea, that which is the sum of human consciouness and experience.

2.  Yea, that name which is unto you singular and unique is not one that any person may come to understand in full before the time of death—though some may come to a knowledge of a portion of this name, none shall ever be fully in posession of knowledge concerning it.

3.  Behold, thou wert called one name by thy parents; and thou wert called by other names throughout the duration of your life by your peers and your superiors; yea, thou art even now called Hoteph through revelation—nevertheless, none of these names are yours.

4.  These names you have collected in your days belong to the people who gave them unto you. That name which is yours and yours alone can only be revealed at the moment of death, when your conscious mind shall finally give way to the torrent of the world's unconsciousness.

5.  In that moment, your name shall come to you in the language of all humanity, which is built upon all sounds and all inflections and all tones;

6.  No one earthly script shall be sufficient enough to record it; no terrestrial language shall be sufficient enough to speak it.

7.  Yea, your name—and the names of all who have come before and will be to come after—shall be composed of countless syllables, immeasurable in rhythm.

8.  Seek not to learn your name, for such is merely a search for death; death and the knowledge thereof shall come to you in time, and is neither foreordained nor happenstance;

9.  Be content in this ignorance.
