When Machiventa Melchizedek disincarnated he “…continued to collaborate throughout the nineteen succeeding centuries with the many prophets and seers, thus endeavoring to keep alive the truths of Salem until the fullness of the time for Michael’s appearance on earth.” 93:10.4 (1024.6)

Each prophet and seer taught a different concept of God and by the time Jesus incarnated among the Hebrews, God was seen as a loving person, merciful, and international; at least in the more progressive conceptualizations. Of course, many erroneous ideas of the Universal Father lingered in the religious mosaic of two thousand years ago.

Among the prophets Machiventa worked with there were, in the east, Lao-Tse, Confucius, Gautama Siddhartha, better known as Buddha. In Egypt there were Amenemope and Ikhnaton (aka Akhenaten). In Persia (Iran) Zoroaster presented one of the most advanced ideas of God.

In the Levant, where Jesus was destined to live and teach, there appeared many minor and major prophets, Moses being the most prominent. Then came Samuel, Elijah, Elisha, Amos, Hosea, Isaiah the first, Micah, Obadiah, Jeramiah, and Isaiah the second. Enoch was the first mortal to fuse with his Adjuster while still in the flesh. And the book attributed to Enoch provided Jesus the title “Son of Man.”

So, do you think that the Melchizedeks are still working with humans to develop higher and higher concepts of God? They wrote or oversaw much that is in The Urantia Book. Surely they didn’t just drop the book off and let it do all the work. I expect some great “prophets and seers” will emerge in the wake of our new revelation.

The Midwayers predict as much, saying: “Sooner or later another and greater John the Baptist is due to arise proclaiming “the kingdom of God is at hand”—meaning a return to the high spiritual concept of Jesus, who proclaimed that the kingdom is the will of his heavenly Father dominant and transcendent in the heart of the believer—and doing all this without in any way referring either to the visible church on earth or to the anticipated second coming of Christ.” 170:5:19 (1866.2)
