Anointing & Sacraments
A Bishop or a Royal is an anointed one (Christos), everyone has been taught this means they have had holy oil put on them, which is correct these days, however it symbolises something completely different. The reason only men have been anointed, and it takes a Queen to make a King, is because the King was anointed with the elixir of the Goddess - The Queen. And the head he was anointed on was his little head during tantric sex, the great rite, hieros gamos. The modern religions completely removed the true source of anointing, and just left the men who are Bishop and Kings, and the real source of enlightenment and their power was lost to his-story. And what happens when you put unenlightened men up as spiritual leaders? Check his-story... wars, paedophile, misogyny, hate, greed etc etc.
Blessed, Baptised & Unction
Being blessed and anointed with oil is a different matter. This has roots in ritual sacrifices to the Gods. It was a blessing to be smeared with oil before being burnt alive, as it was a quicker death that way... a blessing. The people were not killed to feed any kind of God in the sky, but the tribe leaders after a cataclysm when there was no food to be found, and eating the dead or surviving humans was the only way to survive.
Although blessing also means - be blood. Be blood that nourishes us, the ultimate sacrifice for your tribe leaders.
Did Jesus walk on water?
Jesus of Nazareth referred to as Jesus Christ or simply as Jesus or Christ. Christ is the English term for the Greek Χριστός (Khristós) meaning "the anointed one". It is a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ (Māšîaḥ), usually transliterated into English as Messiah or Mashiach.
Jesus was an anointed one, he was anointed with Holy Oil, Khristós - the Holy Oil - floats on water. Try it yourself, get a glass of water then pour some olive oil into it, it will float on water.
Jesus walking on water is simply alchemical allegory for the fact that Holy Oil floats on water. Jesus had been anointed with Holy Oil. He was a Christos, and anyone who is anointed with Holy Oil in a consecration, is also 'an anointed one'. Jesus died to save us all, again allegory for after the flood, the bodies of the dead were floating in the water, and were used as a food source, it saved the survivors from death.
You might ask so why be anointed?
When you are anointed you become a sacrifice, just like Jesus. In Church you are giving your life in to service to that Church.
So when people go to be baptised into a Church, think about what they are doing. They are offering themselves up as a sacrifice. When they are dying and are anointed, again, they are saying, eat my dead body. Our Church teaches the truth about these sacraments, and then changes the meanings to positive actions. Our Baptism means a promise to yourself to do The Great Work, Confirmation - to confirm you are on the path. No leaders to lead and eat you.
