Be very careful here... some so-called 'adepts' (weird word) are prophets.
Jesus' actions and words are full of mystery and astronomical terminology ....he took the 3 aside and told them, 'It is for you to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven and NOT THEM'.
His parables have a surface meaning, but there is more there for those who ABIDE.
No flesh bags will understand, because they value the things and activities of the outer world.... they are Martha cleaning house complaining about Mary.
The other emphasis in this text is on heirarchies of men, which is completely opposed by every word recorded and attributed to Jesus.
Evil is not knowing secrets, but presenting ourselves (publicly) as something we are not and placing ourselves above others.
