General Priesthood Responsibilities & Overview
There are 14 priesthood offices within the Church of Celestine Light. They are open to both men and women, and all except Adept Level 1, are open to single or married individuals. Every member, age 12 and over, is encouraged to become ordained and active in the priesthood, but it is not a requirement of membership.
To hold a priesthood position, an individual must have a personal desire and enthusiasm to hold the position, plus, have met all the requirements of ordination, including age, virtue, faithfulness and knowledge, and lastly, be called, set apart and ordained to the position by the laying on of hands, by the appropriate priesthood authority.
When Yeshua of Nazareth was on the Earth, he brought the higher priesthood of Elohim and did not participate in the Hebrew priesthood that passed only through the tribe of Levi. This is why he was asked on more than one occasion by what authority he spoke and acted, because he was not a Levite, and in the eyes of the religious leaders did not have authority from God to speak and act as he did. Of course, as he is part of the Elohim, the Holy Trinity of God, the creator of all that exists; his word became the new reality. As he said on more than one occasion, he did not come to uphold the old law, but to destroy it.
Yeshua ordained his wife Miriam and his other Apostles to the Elohimic priesthood before he left the Earth for the last time, so that they would have the authority to act in his name and the power of Elohim to help them in their missions. However, he specifically told them not to ordain any others except a few new members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles; for theirs was just to be the Dispensation of the Flame, when the seeds of the fullness of truth would be planted. Though some seeds would sprout, many would wither because of the poisons of man, and the harvest would not be ready until two millennia later, after they had been nurtured in the souls of men and women for generations upon generations, until the final generation was ready to receive the fullness of the truth.
We are that generation, and the Elohimic priesthood and gospel of Yeshua of Nazareth have been restored in fullness to this most blessed generation, by the spiritual laying on of hands of Miriam and the original Apostles, to Embrosewyn Tazkuvel, the first Prophet of this dispensation, to benefit all the generations to come in the world. For the seeds planted 2000 years ago have sprouted, and now the Holy Elohimic Priesthood and all of its rights, authority and power, can be given to every worthy man or woman who follows the fullness of the path of Yeshua of Nazareth.
Every priesthood holder is thus able to trace the authority of their priesthood, to act with the authority and power of Elohim, directly back to Yeshua of Nazareth, through his wife Miriam and his other original Apostles.
The Elohimic Priesthood is divided into three circles or spheres. Each sphere has three levels of attainment. Most of their names were given when Yeshua walked the Earth and a few are of more modern origins. They are merely labels to delineate the powers and responsibilities of each level.
