Spiritual Inheritance of The" Celtic" Church of Today --
Sceptre and Birthright.
The need of the people
in both Alba and Dalriada in the early centuries was for
conversion to Christianity and for a personal commitment
to The Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. Both the Pictish and Scotic
Churches as originally established met this need.
The adage "Come the moment, come the man or woman"
holds true in the secular. How much more so in the Spiritual!
Lord's time as Kiaros is upon the country (not presently
a Nation) of Scotland once again in these times. The need
of the people today is to "Choose you this day whom
you will serve". This is not an invitation -- and thus
one way or the other, it cannot be set aside either individually
or collectively. The Blessing of The Sceptre was placed
within The Scotic Church, and that of The Birthright within
the Pictish Church. The two will merge with the Resurrection
of The Celtic Church Spiritual in The Nation of Scotland.
This will be co-incident with the Blessing of The Monarchy
of Scotland at one with The Sovereignty of the people.
Note: The Pictish and Scotic
Nations were merged under Kenneth MacAlpine. The two (by
that time) Churches had markedly different spirituality
and thus remained separate for approximately two hundred
years during which time The Pictish Church was gradually
absorbed by the Scotic Church. As individuals we may research
this history for ourselves. MacAlpine was a Pict who successfully
laid claim to the Scotic throne by virtue of Scotic blood
in his mother's lineage. He betrayed his own people, the
Picts, by attacking their rear when he knew The Picts were
fighting the Viking raiders and thus overpowered his own
kindred. Such monarchy is of the human ego and is thus not
Monarchy at all. It is inconsistent with the Spiritual development
of humanity in contrast to the Monarchy of Whom Melchizedek
was a vessel.
