The Celtic Orthodox Church is a Western Rite expression of the Faith from the Johannine Branch of Christianity of those churches founded by the twelve apostles, (Gallican, Celtic, Mozabarec, Coptic, Byzantine.)  The Roman Catholic Church is from the Pauline branch of the Church.

WE ARE PART OF BIBLICAL ORTHODOXY

The Celtic Orthodox Church is so

Ancient it demands respect, so

Traditional it is refreshing and so

Conservative it is reassuring

   MANY SOULS GO TO HELL WITH THE BLESSING OF THE CHURCH 

With all the innovations in the larger church catholic, it is important to remember the failure of church leaders to retain the faith as once delivered to the Saints will not excuse you.  You can go to hell with the blessing of the church.  Today the modern man made church has embraced the heresy of Universal Salvation, interfaith syncretism and other concessions to the world, the flesh and the devil.  The man made church has become ‘man centered’ instead of God centered.  Many in the larger church believe hell is not permanent, preaching it is inconsistent with the logic of the Gospel to hold hell is forever.  They have discounted the truth of the Scriptures, Sacred Tradition and the teaching of the Patristic Fathers.  They now teach as dogma what is only human precepts.  Some preach approval of divorce and remarriage, even admitting those in ‘irregular’ unions (those living in adultery and fornication) to the Eucharistic table.  If you follow these heretical teachers, you will go to hell with the blessing of the church.  In their effrontery to God they are so bold as to teach even an Atheist, if he is a ‘good’ person, will go to heaven without accepting Christ and without even embracing faith in God.  The Scriptures are quite clear our personal righteousness is as a filthy menstrual rag in the sight of God (Isaiah 64:6).  God’s plan revealed in the Word of God is clear, our righteousness must be the righteousness of Jesus Christ.   In their effort to be liked and accepted they embrace Muslims and other pagans as our brothers and sisters.  They claim a Muslim will go to heaven if he is a good Muslim.  The Hindu or Buddhist will go to heaven if they are a good Hindu or Buddhist.  The pagans are told they do not have to accept Jesus Christ in order to enter Heaven.  These pagans will soon learn Jesus is Lord and without Jesus there is no hope for a seat in the Celestial Kingdom.  The truth is there is no way to the Father save through Christ.  There is no other name under heaven by which a man can be saved.  _____________________________________________

THE MASS IS CENTRAL TO OUR WORSHIP

 

  What in the 16th Century became known as the Mass was previously known as the Rite of the Tribute . It was the rite of the Tribute, which is described in Leviticus 2. English Bibles generally mistranslate this as “grain offering,” or “meal offering” or “cereal offering,” or simply and very unhelpfully “offering.” But while this rite consists of grain or bread, the name for it is “minchah”, which means “gift” or “tribute.”  It was also known as the “Todah” meaning “thanksgiving”.  

 

The daily Tribute is set forth in Numbers 28:3-8, and consisted of raw wheat flour mixed with oil. The other varieties of Tribute, however, were baked in various ways, and some were broken up. All were divided, with the priest receiving a portion after the Lord had been given His. The part given to the Lord was called a “memorial” (Lev. 2:2, 9, 16).  

A memorial is an action done before God, or an object placed before God, that reminds Him of what He has done in the past, reminds Him of the covenant, and calls upon Him to come and pass judgment and renew that covenant. In a broad sense, all the rites done before God at the Tabernacle were memorials, but only bread rites are ever actually called memorials (Lev. 5:12; 24:7; Num. 5:15).

What Jesus did at the Last Supper was recognizable, but perhaps surprising and even shocking. The disciples did not fully understand that Jesus was God incarnate. Neither they nor His mother Mary nor anyone else could ever have dealt with Him if they had known that. They only knew that He was the Seed of the woman, the son of David, the Messiah. Only after His resurrection did they realize with awe that He was “my Lord and my God” as Thomas put it.
 

So, when Jesus calls down the Holy Spirit on the bread and wine and takes bread and takes a piece for Himself first, calling it His own memorial, it appears that Jesus is taking to Himself the very position that the Lord Yahweh had occupied in the ritual system.

The memorial was made to Yahweh, and Yahweh got the first part of the Tribute bread. Now Jesus is saying that the memorial is about Him, and He takes the first piece of bread for Himself. Then, having reminded these Jews of the daily Tribute rite, Jesus gives them pieces of the bread. They had never eaten Tribute bread because none of them were Aaronic priests. Now Jesus is treating them as priests, a new priesthood with Him as the new Lord.  Today the Priest offering the Liturgy first takes of the bread Himself after it has been consecrated and this bread, unleavened, and blessed with the oil and the salt becomes the “Tribute Bread” of the New Testament and Apostolic Church.  

Before the bread is consecrated today the Priest blesses the bread with oil and salt as a reminder of the covenant and as a statement that the Priest acts in the person of Christ (a Bishop as a statement he is the Alter Christo).  After Consecration he takes of the bread before all others.  The salt is the salt covenant or covenant of salt and the oil is for the blessing of the bread.  

But then Jesus does something even more radical. He takes a cup of wine, and having given thanks, He gives it to the disciples and says, “Drink of this, all of you for this is the covenant of my blood, the New and Eternal Covenant which will be shed for you and for the many. Do this, whenever you do it, in memory of me.” All the same, moving from bread to wine in this way, Jesus clearly was reinstituting the Tribute rite in a new way, and the disciples would have recognized this immediately.  

When Jesus says that the wine is now to be drunk, and that it is a memorial, He is telling the disciples that the end of the ages has come. The kingdom has come. The rite that He leaves with them for us continues in an un-bloody manner the fullness of the beginning with alpha bread, and then memorializes the fullness of the completion with the omega wine.  

Bread was called Alpha food and wine Omega food.  The bread was at the beginning of the day and wine at night but the Priest never drank the wine in the Old Testament Service but does in the New Testament which says the completion of the ages of ages.

The Anglo-Celtic People

  _______________________________

   

THE CELTS ARE ISRAELITES UNDER ANOTHER NAME
 
The word Celt is the Anglicized form of the Greek word Keltoi, which means "the people who are different." In Scripture, all nations, except the Twelve Tribes of Israel, are referred to as Gentiles (Foreigners), so the only people who are different are Israel. The word Celt is therefore another word for Israelite. The Celts are part of the Ten "lost" Tribes of Israel; as are the Tuatha de Danaan and Milesians. The Irish people are a mixture of Celts; Danaans; Milesians; Judah/Zarahites (of the "Red Hand" - Genesis 38:28-30); (Dan-ish) Vikings and Norsemen and are all racially cousins.

THE CELTS, ACCORDING TO GOD, ARE ISRAELITES.

T
he word British is not English; it is Hebrew.
Brit (Berit) means Covenant in Hebrew and Welsh
Ish means man or people of, in Hebrew and English
Therefore British means The People of The Covenant,
in other words, the People Israel of The Covenant.

However, the Celtish / Irish people are Israelites descended from Jacob/Israel's fifth of his twelve sons, who was called Dan and fathered the Tuatha de Danaan - the Tribe of Dan (the Irish and Danish). Therefore the Irish people are Celtish / British-Israelites by birth i.e. People of The Covenant in the Torah in the Bible and in The Ark, which is buried at Tara.
