The first "Christian Church" was actually established in the year AD 35 by Joseph of Arimathea, when he was 55 years old, at in Britain. This was after the crucifixion. The Roman Catholic Church admits this, as the British Church was always accorded seniority at Ecclesiastical Councils, despite objections from some quarters. Christianity did not come to Rome until AD 90, so the British Church was obviously senior to the Roman Catholic Church. However a church at Fortingall in Scotland predates that time, having been established by an earlier Christian community - an ancient Essenic order. The Culdees - "Servants of the Lord" ("Ceile-de") constituted the early Christian Church which was not called "Christian" at that time, and the name continued through to "Christian" times. "Christianity was privately expressed elsewhere but the first nation that proclaimed it as their religion, and called itself Christian, after the name of Christ, was Britain." - Polydore Vergil We are taught in school about the great centres of learning in Egypt and Greece, but where did it all come from? Going back about 5,000 years we find that the centre of learning at that time was SCOTLAND! They inherited knowledge from Atlantis. More recently there are records of Joseph of Arimathea, who was a wealthy merchant and dealer in tin, coming by ship to Cornwall as well as Scotland, and of later coming with his nephew (Jesus), who was accompanied by his mother Mary and others. His brothers and several of his disciples also came to Britain - Peter, James, John, Simon Zelotes, Bartholomew. It has often been questioned why the Patron Saint of Scotland is St Andrew as it is claimed that he had never visited there. This is untrue: there are indeed records of his stay in Scotland. The Scots Chronicles record that Egyptian philosopher priests were apparently teaching the Christic doctrine of a universal deity in ancient Caledonia (Scotland) about 180 BC, almost two centuries before the Apostolic mission in the British Isles. Origen, the Christian Father, wrote about 230 AD in his 4th Homily on Ezekiel "The island has long been predisposed to it (Christianity) through the doctrines of the Druids and the Buddhists, who had already inculcated the doctrine of the unity of the Godhead." In the Northwest of Scotland there is The Hebrides (originating from the word 'Hebrew'), and a small island off Dunvegan in Skye, where Castle Macleod still stands, carries the name 'Island of Jesus' in Gaelic - 'Eilan Isa'. Note that 'Isa' is the exact Aramaic spiritual title of Jesus, rather than the Scottish Gaelic equivalent, which is 'Iosa'. In Nepal and Tibet he is referred to as 'St Isa' or 'Issa'. His personalised Aramaic/Hebrew name is JESHUA. In the church records of a village in Scotland the following family names (surnames) frequently appear - 'Giliosa', which means 'son of Jesus', and McGiliosa, which means 'a son of the son of Jesus'. Today's name of 'Gilchrist' was originally 'Gillichrist' or 'son of Christ'. There are other similar Scottish names extant today - Gillies, McGilchrist, Mcleish. The Gospel of John makes no reference to the life of Jesus prior to his baptism by John, nor even to his being born in Bethlehem. Was it edited out to conceal a possible Celtic background to the family of Jesus? Joseph of Arimathea, like many others, followed the Phoenician trade route, which was through the Straits of Gibraltar, along the western coastline of Spain (ancient Iberia) to Cornwall (the tin mining area of SW England), up the SW coast to Wales and Galloway in Scotland. They then went on to the Western Isles before travelling by road down to Fortingall in the Central Highlands, which was the great spiritual centre. Jesus (or Esu) made two trips to Scotland with his uncle Joseph of Arimathea. Once as a boy ("Joseph of Arimathea landed in Cornwall with the child Jesus" *) then at the age of 30, when he resided for some time at Glastonbury **. After visiting China, India and Tibet, he started his mission, preached to the highly cultured Druids (whose language was basically very similar to Hebrew) and converted them to 'Christianity'. That was not very difficult as the belief systems were identical (not as our history books teach!).* Recorded in a treatise by Rev C.C. Dobson, M.A. entitled "Did our Lord visit Britain as they say in Cornwall and Somerset")Joseph of Arimathea is also referred to by the British King Caradog (Caractacus) as the principal teacher of Christianity to the Cambro-Britons. There are many references to Jesus completing his studies in Britain. At that time it is recorded that Druidic universities were the largest in the world, numbering sixty large universities with an average attendance of sixty-thousand students. The Roman Catholic Church considered the Druids "pagans". This was probably to cover up the fact that doctrines existed long ago that were identical to that which they themselves espoused, and this competition could not be allowed. They must therefore be classified as "heathen", or in the case of Britain, "pagan". It is interesting to note that the nobility and wealthy of Rome, Athens and other cities sent their children to be educated in science, law and religion in Britain. Scotland was previously known by the names Hibernia, Alban, and Caledonia. Britain was previously known as Brittany - Alban at one time meant the whole of Britain. The wise men of India recorded the visit of Jesus among them, saying that he resided in Nepal. They also make several references to Britain as being a great centre for religious learning. Although the Apostles took the limelight, it was Jesus's inner family (the sacred nine) that managed the message and teaching of the Christ. The Akashic records indicate that these nine were Jesus (Yeshua), his mother Mary, his brothers Jude and James and sister Ruth, his uncle Joseph of Arimathea (Mary's brother), his sister Mary Martha, her daughter Mary Magdalene, and his son Lazarus (later "John the Beloved"). [Much of the history referred to here comes from the book "The Holy Land of Scotland" (see the *** Reference at the foot of this page - a book which in itself uses many reference sources.] The record continues on, but more revelations would cause apoplexy in the Church, so no more will be said about it here. Written in stone? Yes, in olden days the records actually were! The Western parts of Britain (which was once known as Brittany) all speak a version of Gaelic, which has the same syntax as Hebrew. Languages are generally compared by the occurrence of the same word with a similar meaning, but this is often inconclusive evidence. Only when two languages have the same syntax can it be said that they are unquestionably related. This was of course part of Atlantis at one time and that part of Europe as far South as Spain has inherited much from the Atlantean civilisation. This means that the Church is in for a rough time when true history is finally brought to the light of day - and it will begin to be taught in the schools before long. So when the announcement comes, there will be much consternation at first. The people (who are much more informed these days, thanks particularly to the Internet) will start asking their spiritual leaders to explain why they have been misled for so long, so it behooves the clergy to prepare answers as quickly as possible, thereby ensuring that they will still have a livelihood in this 'business' ..... the churches will quickly empty unless the members and adherents are given authoritative advice. But there is increasing evidence that there is a warming in ecclesiastical circles that should lead to a more open dialogue and a working together for the betterment of all. The skies of the future are clearing. Christmas Day Message 2005 from Sananda: "The winds of change will blow, and they will strike the pastors as well as the congregations. We have in mind to send a heralder to each church, and allow the heralder to be within the community, sending thoughts of reincarnation, communication (telepathy) and solicitude. These will bear fruit." For further enlightenment on the Second Coming it is recommended that you read the web page http://secondcoming.insights2.org/Intro.html which is An introduction to the New Mission of Sananda/Esu Immanuel. From the Akashic Records:- The Scottish nation originates at least in part from the Egyptian Princess, Scota, who came to Britain about 1,400 BC. "Scota had 12 sons and 2 daughters. Several of her children, including her fourth son, Wryn, left the British Isles. Wryn eventually settled in the land of Ebenkar, and from his generation came Heliosarankha, to be called 'Helen' by her Greek captors. Tajhrhanok's (Torhannah/Scota) father was a Shepherd King (Hyksos) of Egypt who was on the Throne of Zan (Zoan) when the Hyksos were expelled from Egypt by Ahmosis I. Of the royal family of Kheneper, only Tajrhanok escaped with her life. Before the 'purge', she was being groomed through high initiation to become the progenitor of a 'Holy Family' which was to have arisen in Egypt. Yet, only several weeks before the final blow which took her father and other members to the grave, did Tajrhanok receive a vision while in deep trance in which she was told to take the phialates, or sacred relics of the Kheneper, and go unto the land of Alba On (Alba/Albion), the sacred name for the British Isles, where she was to establish the kingdom for the royal line of the Holy Family. The British Isles thus became the 'seed chamber' for this generation of the sacred." "Helen was of the 'Hibiru' tribes. She was also Celtic with some other traces of 'Egyptian' genetics. When Paris [a Trojan Prince] brought Helen to Troy, it was 10 years before the 'Trojan War' ensued. This war was not caused by the capture of Helen. Certainly, her abduction added to the distress, but there were other factors involved which built to the final Greek expedition, which was in itself an undertaking of several years. Helen bore Paris twins: a daughter Iovina and a son Erustus. It was from Iovina's descendants that Jesus, the Christ bearer, was born."

Two remarkable photographsThese photographs were taken near the Sea of Galilee on a visit to the Holy Land in 1967 by a photographer (who does not want to be named) with a simple Kodak Instamatic camera, at the invitation of Pleiadeans, who said they would show her scenes from back in time (about April, 31 AD).
of Joseph of Arimathea and Immanuel ben Joseph (Jesus Christ).
When the film was developed it showed Immanuel ben Joseph (Jesus Christ) with his maternal uncle, Joseph of Arimathea; and a group entitled "The Great Decision" with Joseph of Arimathea, Immanuel ben Joseph (Jesus) with his younger brother James and Simon Peter.

It was at this moment that Immanuel made his choice to return to Jerusalem, explaining the looks of concern and sorrow seen on the faces of the others. It was this One Man's Great Decision which forever changed the course of history.
