Chapter 9

El Elyon, the Most High – Machiventa Melchizedek – the Sage of Salem

 

For readers following Earth’s unrecorded early history as told by Tigh, this final chapter encompasses Abraham’s life and his long affiliation with the Sage of Salem. The Melchizedeks engage in a vast range of activities throughout the spectrum of a local universe. When an emergency arises anywhere in the universe, it is often a Melchizedek who volunteer there service. They have the capacity to function on widely different levels, even to the extent of manifesting on the material plane as was done on Earth. Only the Life Carriers have the same amount of diversity.

 

The Melchizedek order has been very active on Earth. A group of twelve of them along with the Life Carriers where assigned on Earth before the Planetary Prince arrived. They returned to take control after Caligastia’s secession and again returned shortly after the Adamic default. They continue to provide important service to the planet.

 

Tigh was now finally in the last phase of understanding the pre-history of the Earth, which he had finally picked up on mansion world seven. I will let him tell it to you in his own words but first I want to talk to you about the lead up to Machiventa’s arrival on Earth.

 

All the truths that had been revealed during the era of the Planetary Prince had largely evaporated in the consciousness of man. Intellectual progress was steadily being made but from a spiritual standpoint it had been a slow and steady decline. By about 3,000 BC., the Melchizedeks realized that there was danger that the candle of spirit, lighting the darkness for all, was getting close to being extinguished. They petitioned the Most High of Edentia about the situation on Earth but were for whatever reason, turned down. They then turned to the head of their order, the Father Melchizedek, who only said that they should stay the course through this difficult time.

 

One of the twelve planetary receivers on the planet aware of how tenuous the situation was on Earth volunteered to be incarnated on the planet as a material being. This had only been done six times in the history of the universe and it was an exceptional gesture on his part. Permission was granted by the Salvington authorities and Machiventa Melchizedek prepared himself for the endeavor. The materialization was conducted through co-operation of the Life Carriers, the Master Physical Controllers, the remaining Melchizedek and other celestial beings present on the planet at the time.

 

It’s from this point that I will let Tigh take over the narrative. It has been a great pleasure to present to you Tigh’s life journey to this point. It appears that soon he will be fused with his Though Adjuster and become a citizen of the universe. Who knows whether his exploits to Orvonton and beyond will coalesce again in the consciousness of Mankind on Earth but even if it doesn’t I will still be with him, at his side, making the substantial voyage across the heavens to Havona and the Isle of Paradise.

 

In Tigh’s words, “Machiventa’s arrival was deemed unpretentious and his materialization on the planet was not witnessed. He entered the tent of a Chaldean sheep herder of Sumerian extraction, 1,972 years before the birth of Jesus. The herder was astonished to see him and before he could ask a question about who he was, Machiventa proclaimed; “I am Melchizedek, priest of El Elyon, the Most High, the one and only God.” The herder had many questions for the surprise visitor so he invited him to stay for dinner. It must be said this was the first time that Machiventa had ever had material food and not the last as he lived on Earth for 94 years.

 

“It was that night under a canopy of stars, as they sat talking long into the evening that Machiventa proclaimed to Amdon, stretching his hand toward the heavens; “El Elyon, the Most High, is the divine creator of the stars of the firmament and even of this very Earth on which we live, and he is also the supreme God in heaven.” So that was Machiventa’s first day on Earth, as a sage of the times.

 

“He was soon known throughout the land as the priest of El Elyon, the Most High. He gathered around him a group of supporters; believers, pupils and disciples from the surrounding tribes, which later became the community of Salem and the people often referred to him later in life as the Sheik, or king of Salem. Much later, after Melchizedek had departed Earth, Salem became the city of Jebus and later referred to as Jerusalem.

 

“In appearance, he stood six feet tall and had an impressive aura about him. He spoke Chaldean but at least six other languages, as well, and his looks resembled that of a Nodite and Sumerian mix. He dressed as any Canaanite priest would but he wore the three, blue concentric circle insignia of Satania on his breast that represented the Paradise Trinity. His human body while resembling that of a human male was identical to that of the Prince Caligastia’s 100 corporeal staff and the only thing missing was, he didn’t carry the life plasm of any human race. There was no ‘tree of life’ to sustain his immortality and if he had remained after his 94 years, he would have eventually deteriorated and died. He never married, as he was forbidden by the Most High on Edentia to leave any offspring on Earth as Jesus was later instructed.

 

“During his incarnation, he was in full contact with his eleven other Melchizedek receivers but he could not communicate with the many other orders of celestial beings and so outside of his brethren, his was much like any human being existing on the material plane. He was also indwelled with a Though Adjuster who gathered great experience from Machiventa’s life on Earth. With this absorbed experience, this celebrated Mystery Monitor was selected to indwell Jesus during his incarnation on Earth nearly 2000 years later.

 

“About a decade removed from his mysterious appearance, he had organized his schools at Salem, patterning them on early Sethite priests of the post Adamic period. Machiventa Melchizedek taught the concept of one God as a universal Deity but trying not to complicate things too much, based heaven on Edentia and the Constellation Father of Norlatiadek, as the supreme deity, referred to as El Elyon. He took particular care never to mention the Lucifer rebellion or anything about affairs on the system’s capital and the presence of Lanaforge, the System Sovereign. Lanaforge had little to do with Earth until after Michael’s bestowal as Jesus. And as for the insignia of Satania, which he carried on his breast, he let the people interpret it meaning and they determined that the three concentric circles represented the three kingdoms; of men, angels, and God.

 

“He rarely revealed the truths beyond that of the Most High on Norlatiadek. But to some of his best, he taught of the higher truths embracing the local universe but to a select few, he revealed the existence of the super-universe and even beyond to Havona and the central universe. It’s interesting to note that the family he resided with for over thirty years, the Katro family, grew to know these higher truths and ever faithful to the concepts, passed them down through future generations. One of these illustrious descendants was Moses, whose father was of the Katro line, so he was greatly assisted by these revelations. But he also received higher teachings from sources on his mother’s side as well.

 

“Machiventa taught that at some future date, another Son of God would appear on Earth, but he would be born on Earth by a woman in traditional fashion and be of flesh and blood like them. So he prepared the future generations to believe in one God, a universe Deity, a divine father, a heavenly Creator, a Universal Father. He was paving the way for Michael’s bestowal on Earth.

 

“Salem worship was very simple, every person committed to memory and subscribed to the ‘Seven Commandments.’ They also signed their name to this code of conduct. These commandments that Melchizedek presented were patterned after the ancient supreme law of Dalamatia and close to the seven commands taught by the first and second Gardens. They were as follows: You shall not serve any God but the Most High Creator of heaven and earth; You shall not doubt that faith is the only requirement for eternal salvation; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not kill; You shall not steal; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not show disrespect for your parents or elders.

 

“Machiventa did not attempt to change the habits or mores of the people, not even to teach them better sanitation methods or scientific truths. He stuck to two principles; to keep alive the belief in one God, but not to the extent of the ultimate truth of the Universal Father, the other was to prepare the way for Michael’s bestowal. One of his students was Abraham who attended the Salem school on three different occasions. He became one his chief supporters and one of his most brilliant students.

 

“It’s an error to refer to the Hebrews as the ‘chosen people,’ but it can apply to Abraham as Melchizedek’s chosen one. Abraham had the potential to keep the teaching of the one God forefront in the minds of his people, rather than the belief in multiple deities as was practiced at the times. The Melchizedek had been watching him and his family for some time. The choice of Palestine as the land of Machiventa’s incarnation was no accident and preceded any consideration for Abraham as his candidate, for he felt it was the best location for Michael’s future bestowal on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It was centrally located and it had existing trade routes, originating from near and far. Travelers passed by, or came to visit and it was an established center of civilization.

 

“The children of Terah, Abraham’s father, met the criteria they were looking for, rather than some family located in other civilized centers, like Egypt, India, China, or amongst the northern tribes such as the Hittites. The Terah family was only half-hearted in their conversion to the Salem doctrine from their city of Ur. A few weeks after the death of Abraham’s father, Melchizedek sent one of his students, the Hittite, Jaram to extend an invitation to Abraham and his brother Nahor. Nahor was not warm to the idea and stayed behind and instead, established a strong city state in Ur. Lot, Abraham’s nephew, decide to join him in his trek to Salem.

 

“As soon as they arrived in Salem, they selected a strategic hill site near the city from which they could defend themselves from attack by the frequent raiding parties that were taking place at the time. Hittites, Assyrians and Philistines often swept down to raid the tribes in the Palestine. From their stronghold in the hills nearby, Abraham and Lot made several pilgrimages to Salem.

 

“Not long after establishing their people near Salem, it became apparent they would need to set off for the Nile, as food supplies were scarce and the area was still gripped in a strong drought. During their brief time in Egypt, Abraham discovered that the Pharaoh was a distant cousin of his and an opportunity arose for him to provide valuable service to the Egyptian king. Abraham led two very successful expeditions as the commander for the king and was held in high regard by his cousin. Abraham and his wife Sarah lived at court, during their sojourn there and were reluctant to leave.

 

“It required substantial resolve on Abraham’s part to relinquish the honors of the Egyptian court and the material pleasures this entailed, to take up Machiventa’s cause of spreading the spiritual truth. Fortunately, Melchizedek was held in high regard by the Pharaoh and his court and when Abraham explained his duty and commitment to the Sage of Salem, the king supported his decision, and for his reward on serving the country, he was given a share of the spoils from his military campaigns.

 

“On the way back from Egypt, Abraham laid out his ambitions to become king of all Canaan and bring his people under the rule of Salem. Lot was more interested in business opportunities than a military campaign and he was not enraptured with spending his life as a herder. After a disagreement with Abraham, he headed for Sodom to engage in trade.

 

“The Salem truths were what initially motivated Abraham but his desire to be king was not far behind and combining, the two made perfect sense to him. On his return to Salem, he started training and growing his military capabilities and soon he had a confederation put together of the seven near-by tribes. It was difficult for Melchizedek to hold him back; he had maintained peaceful relations with the surrounding tribes and Abraham could endanger that. He felt Abraham should maintain a defensive position around Salem, not an aggressive one, by going out conquering new lands and their people. They had an amiable break in their relationship and Abraham went to Hebron to establish his military capital.

 

“Because of his know connection with Machiventa, the surrounding petty-kings who admired Melchizedek, feared Abraham and he knew that and waited for his opportunity. His excuse came when some of these rulers raided the property of Lot in Sodom. With his own bodyguard numbering 318 officers, his army exceeded 4,000, he attacked and won. Melchizedek had heard of the declaration of war and tried to intervene but met Abraham on his victorious return and he insisted that his victory over his enemies was the result of the God of Salem. He gave ten percent of the spoils to the Salem treasury and continued on to Hebron with the rest.

 

“With his next success at the battle of Siddim, he became the leader of a second confederation of eleven tribes and again paid bounty to Salem and encouraged others to do the same. He dealt diplomatically with the king of Sodom and the fear others generally held of him helped, as others joined the Hebron military confederation. By this time, he was well on his way to establishing a powerful state in Palestine.

 

“Hid vision of conquering all of Canaan was coming to fruition and only held back by Melchizedek’s insisting that he could not sanction such a thing. Machiventa wisely told him that the Amorite confederation was a collection of backward clans, who practiced human sacrifice, amongst its other foolish practices, so let them weaken themselves as you grow your people’s number and then overrun them. It was during this conversation that the Machiventa persuaded Abraham to abandon his scheme of material conquest and to pursuit the spiritual concept of the Kingdom of Heaven. It was then that Melchizedek told Abraham the story of the future occupation of Canaan by his offspring after their sojourn in Egypt, and Moses bringing his people back to the promise land. The fact that Abraham still didn’t have an heir to his throne also troubled him greatly.

 

“Finally the great covenant between Abraham and the Sage took place and represents the agreement on Earth between divinity and humanity. Up until now salvation, it was thought, could only be secured by hard work, human sacrifice and offerings to God. What was brought forward instead was that faith in God alone would provide the access to God’s heaven. This gospel of God was hard to accept amongst the Semitic tribesman, and they soon reverted back to their old ways.

 

“It was not long after this covenant that Isaac was born in accordance with a promise by Machiventa that it would happen. After that, Abraham took a much more solemn approach to Melchizedek’s teachings and even though he was against the practice of circumcision, now he condoned it and the practice was born among the Jewish people. He now publically, with great determination, gave up his personal ambitions and dedicated his life to the will of God. It was at this moment in time that he had the experience with the three celestial beings on the Plains of Mamre. Much of what was said and later written by scribes, about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was largely fabricated, but the appearance of the three celestial beings to Abraham is true.

 

“Abraham worked tirelessly for Melchizedek’s cause. He extended the tithe or duty tax to everyone and he put up new tents for the numerous schools under the umbrella of the one school. He improved the business model for running the Salem school and he streamlined the missionary propaganda methods. He was a shrewd and effective man of wealth, both spiritually and from a business sense. He was thoroughly sincere in his belief and he really did believe in Machiventa Melchizedek and his teachings but he was never overly pious, it was not in the man’s character.

 

“Melchizedek put great effort into his Salem missionaries, who traveled extensively to Egypt, Mesopotamia and Asia Minor. As the decades passed they reached farther afield carrying with them, Machiventa’s faith and belief in God. Clustered about the shores of Lake Van, the descendants of Adamson learned from Hittite teachers about the Salem teachings and absorbed it in relish. From this onetime Adamsonite center of culture, teachers were dispatched to the remoter regions of Asia and Europe. They penetrated as far as the British Isles, even passing through the Faroe Islands to reach the Andonite Inuit in Iceland, while another group reached as far east as the Japanese. This was a heroic chapter in the records of human history. From these three centres; Salem, Mesopotamia and Lake Van, they spread the word to the rest of the known world.

 

“This huge undertaking was spotty though in getting results, for they were dealing with backward people who although inspired to believe, could not maintain the discipline required, in making it take root. Long before the advent of Joshua ben Joseph’s sojourn on Earth, the teachings from Salem, slowly disappeared into the older beliefs and superstitions of the past; the belief in the Great Mother, the Sun and other ancient cults. It was only in Palestine that it became lodged firmly in the population of the land, in Judaism and the Hebrew people.

 

“Melchizedek wanted to depart with sufficient time left on Abraham’s life, to instill in his devotees the one and only fact; that there was but one God and that this point should be well established in the minds of his followers. He was also increasingly being treated as a demi-god and regarded with too much reverence. Before they took the matter to far, with superstition and fear building in him of that happening, he decided that it was time to depart. It was just after the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah that he took leave that evening and retired to his tent. When they went to call on him in the morning, he was gone, they surmised that his fellow Melchizedek’s had taken him away.

 

“What comes to mind with living in the present, is that you live in an age of the printed page and the written word and even more advantageous, the dawn of social media. Back in Abraham’s time it was only by word of mouth, as most places had no written language and those that did, relied on clay tablets, which few could read as they we’re illiterate. It would be another one-thousand years before the Hebrew people would have a written language of their own. So quickly it was observed, in the distant lands, that these great teachings were being submerged by the people at that time.

 

“The next generation of Abraham’s bloodline had a hard time comprehending that Melchizedek, even existed, let alone could they fathom his teachings. Five-hundred years later, many regarded him and his narrative as a myth. Isaac, as Abraham’s son, stayed pretty true to the Salem teachings but it was much harder for his son Jacob to grasp its significance and traditions. We know that Joseph was a firm believer in Melchizedek and his teachings and it was largely because of this that he was ridiculed by his siblings as a dreamer. When Joseph went to Egypt, he was honored because his great-grandfather was Abraham. He was even offered a military command but turned it down as he was not a warrior and didn’t have the temperament for it. He instead became a civil administrator and continued to preach the teachings of Melchizedek, Abraham and Isaac.

 

“To the later Hebrew priests in captivity in Babylonia in the 6th-century BC, these stories of Melchizedek were viewed in fluctuating fashion, between being fantastic and then impossible to understand. What the Old Testament recorded as conversations between God and Abraham, were really his discussions with Machiventa. They also recorded many more stories that revolved around Abraham and Sarah, commiserated with the ‘angel of the Lord,’ which in actuality, were only referencing there numerous visits to Salem to visit Melchizedek. This jumble of facts and fiction by the Hebrew priests was less intentional and more a misunderstanding of the events, but overall they got a lot of it right.

 

“Far more reliable in the Old Testament are the narratives of Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, for even Abraham’s story is suspect from a theological standpoint. But even all three chronicles are riddled with diversion of the facts and alterations that were made both intentionally and unintentionally. Keturah was not a wife of Abraham she was part of his concubine, like Hagar. Isaac was the son of Sarah and all of Abraham’s property went to him on his death and not as the bible says. This was all suppressed by the Hebrew priests so that they could allege that Isaac’s birth was a miracle.

 

“They also wanted to have Abraham as a descendant of Adam and Eve and connect it through Abrahams’s ancestral descend from Noah. But the ability to connect Noah to Adam and Eve, who they envisioned falsely as the first human beings, was fraught with complications and snags, so they got rid of the problem by creating a global deluge that conveniently wiped out all of their problems. They did it by drowning everybody in the world but Noah, his family and all the animals. Noah actually did live, as mentioned earlier, along the Euphrates River during a bad period of flooding, as a result of climate change and did build a boat to house his family and livestock, during periods of bad flooding, but nothing to the scale the Old Testament details. Noah just anchored his boat and road out the flooding in that fashion.

 

“It must be recognized that the Jewish people were a tremendously depressed lot, under Babylonian captivity, while trying to complete their Bible. This captivity, created a national inferiority complex and to compensate, they perverted the idea that they were the chosen people of God. There was a lot happening in the Middle East at the time, there was a lot of competing forces and they wanted to elevate Abraham, above everyone else at the time and to do this they had to get rid of all records that didn’t fit their idea or their story. So the scribes destroyed all the records of these momentous times and preserved only that which related to Abraham and Melchizedek after the battle of Siddim, which coincided with the period when Abraham was considered his greatest. They also lost track of Melchizedek and his teachings and he pretty well disappeared from history, along with his announcement that the Son of God was soon to incarnate on Earth. This pattern of censorship, continued through the Christian era up to the present, especially the conduct of the Church of Rome.

 

“When the Christians distorted the teaching of Jesus after his death, and especially over the next four-hundred years, when the New Testament was being written, it became a hopeless jumble of history that never had a hope of getting sorted out. Academia wasn’t going to do it for they were usurped by the power of the church. Just think back to the tyranny and persecution, the church displayed, over Galileo and Copernicus and their academic revelations centuries later. Religion was far too unreliable while choking on its own dogma, as well as, its own agenda of destroying any remnants of Pagan or Gnostic though. This was at the forefront on their minds, so to get much of anything right was doomed from the start. Even some of your great poets were on the side of a vindictive and punishing God. It was left to the mystics to make sense of it all.”

 

The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold,
And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold;
And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the seas,
When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilea.

 

Like the leaves of the forest when Summer is green,
That host with their banners at sunset were seen:
Like the leaves of the forest when Autumn hath blown,
That host on the morrow lay withered and strown.

 

For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed.
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and forever grew still!

 

And there lay the steed with his nostrils all wide,
But through it there rolled not the breath of his pride;
And the foam of his gasping lay white on the turf,
And cold as the spray of the rock-beating surf.

 

And there lay the rider distorted and pale,
With dew on his brow, and rust on his mail:
And the tents were all silent, the banners alone,
The lances unlifted, the trumpets unblown.

 

And the widows of Ashur are loud in their wail,
And the idols are broke in the temple of Baal;
And the might of the Gentile unsmote by the sword,
Hath melted like snow in the glance of the Lord.
(Lord Byron, 1815)

 

*****

 

I have one last appearance as Chermella before this narrative ends and you on Earth will be faced with the great truth that soon approaches. While conducting his affairs on Earth as a member of the Melchizedek twelve, Machiventa continued to take interest in the affairs in the Levant and Palestine. What he discovered was that the progeny of Abraham were the only line (Kenites) which nourished a clear understanding of his teachings. Things were tenuous. Fortunately, Moses’ wife, an Egyptian princess was of the Kenite line and her father was a student in the Sage of Salem’s teachings. Machiventa continued as a planetary receiver right up to Michael’s bestowal as Jesus, nineteen centuries later, before finally being relieved of his duties and given permission to return to Jerusem. He was quickly appointed and now occupies a seat on the four and twenty council. Just recently, he was elevated to be the personal ambassador on Jerusem for the Creator Son, Michael of Nebadon, now bearing the title of, Vicegerent Planetary Prince of Earth. While Earth remains an inhabited planet, it is destined to always have members of the Melchizedek Order somewhere in the mix.

 

There are some I have communicated with, who originate from Earth, who feel that Machiventa’s role in connection with the planet will always remain. There is even talk that he could become the next Planetary Prince, once everything is sorted out around the Lucifer fiasco. Earth has not seen the bestowal of either a Magisterial Son or Trinity Teacher Son. All of this makes it one of the most interesting and intriguing planets in this universe. It’s the only planet that had its Creator Son bestow himself on it in his seventh and final one as Jesus. All of this happening on a world isolated because of rebellion, as well as, an Adamic default that could only complicate matters. It is also a favorite destination for visitors and students, coming to see the planet of Michael, the world of the cross. The idea being batted about on Edentia is that Adam and Eve are due back on the planet to finish their ordained mission. It’s a possibility. As it stands, they can only participate in their own ascending career, once Earth reaches its highest point of evolution and enters the age of ‘Light and Life.’ There is no better way to assure that happening, then reengaging as a couple and moving the Earth forward.

 

One thing is universally evident, the planet lacks any substantive leadership and it has some inherent problems that need to be resolved. Leadership at present comes from the western nations, particularly from America. The United Nations, a global pseudo-governing body, lacks military might, a mandate to lead and is hindered by a bloating bureaucracy. World peace will only come when a critical mass of its people accept the concept of an all-encompassing faith in a Universal Father; commit themselves to a sound and effective world government, create a melting pot of blended and tolerant races, have gender equality and embrace the concept of one spoken and written language. If it’s left up to evolution and defective genes, Earthlings may be in for a long and difficult time, with the treat of extinction not far down the road. I’m afraid because of the advent of their nuclear age, leadership might have to come from afar.

 

Greed, intolerance and power are far too easily abused by many, who do not understanding how detrimental it is, in withering one’s soul or for that matter, they probably don’t care. Humans must open their minds now and embrace what has been written here today. Shake off the old ideas and practices you have inherited, or accepted down through the centuries and move forward with a new awakening on the horizon. We are all connected to the center and to each other as one large over-soul. Through adversity we have the potential to gain the stars together and eventually sit at the center, beside and with ‘The All.’
