[506] The 5/6 earthly identities of Michael, Gabriel and Melchizedek

We have seen in section Intro16 that Jesus was possessed by Michael.
We have seen in section I19 that John the Baptist was possessed by Gabriel.
We have seen in section I20 that Melchizedek was Jared in the pre flood system and Cainan in the post flood system.

The other angelic visits

12 Look! I am coming quickly, and the reward I give is with me, to render to each one as his work is.
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end (Revelation 22).

By the Immediate Repetition Principle, there is a greater meaning to Alpha and Omega and a greater meaning to the concept of first and last. The clue is in the verse above: I am coming quickly! Jesus was the first to come to this world as Enoch, the one transferred so as not to see death. And he is the last to come in this system to appoint FDS4, and finally after this system as Abbadon the passover angel of Armageddon.

11 They have over them a king, the angel of the abyss. In Hebrew his name is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon (Revelation 9).

The greater meaning of Alpha and Omega, more than merely first and last, is that there are 24 letters in the Greek alphabet and there are 24 comings of Michael, Gabriel and Melchizedek in all to mankind. Beginning with Enoch and ending with Abaddon, these both being comings of Michael. This is a big understanding. This is another reason why the 'hour' of a coming is often used, there being 24 hours in the whole Hebrew day, and Gregorian day. 

So we need to go on a treasure hunt and find a few more angels in the bible!

Jared, Methuselah and Jehoiada

We know from section [235] that as regards the sons of Adam, the maximum lifespan before the flood was 960, then after the flood it was 480, then after Peleg it was 240, then after Moses it was 120. So we can now scour the bible to see who outlived these age limits. The results of our searches  are:

20 So all the days of Jared amounted to 962 years and he died (Genesis 5).

27 So all the days of Methuselah amounted to 969 years and he died (Genesis 5).

15
And Jehoiada got to be old and satisfied with years and gradually died, being a 130 years old at his death (Chronicles 24).

What is the Status of the LXX ?

Is the LXX an inspired account? Well, most of the New Testament quotes of the old testament are actually from the LXX, so certainly in these cases the quoted parts are inspired, but this does not mean that the original words were inspired. But in many places the new testament writers do not follow the LXX but supply a doctored version which is closer to a translation of the BHS. So is the LXX inspired? The answer to this question is provided by the holy spirit in Numbers 11 of the BHS:

25 Then Jehovah came down in a cloud and spoke to him and took away some of the spirit that was upon him and put it upon each of the 70 older men. And it came about that as soon as the spirit settled down upon them, then they proceeded to act as prophets; but they did not do it again (Numbers 11).

These 70 are the 70 men who translated the Law of Moses into Greek at Alexandria in the 3rd century BCE in the symbolic meaning we would suggest. In fact there may have been 72 men who translated the LXX into Greek in Alexandria between 284 and 247BC (According to Sir Lancelot Brenton LXX). But thereagain there was Eldad and Medad in Numbers 11:

24 After that Moses went out and spoke to the people the words of Jehovah. And he went gathering seventy men from the older men of the people and proceeded to have them stand round about the tent.
25 Then Jehovah came down in a cloud and spoke to him and took away some of the spirit that was upon him and put it upon each of the 70 older men. And it came about that as soon as the spirit settled down upon them, then they proceeded to act as prophets; but they did not do it again.
26 Now there were two of the men remaining in the camp. The name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other was Medad. And the spirit began to settle down upon them, as they were among those written down, but they had not gone out to the tent. So they proceeded to act as prophets in the camp.
27 And a young man went running and reporting to Moses and saying: Eldad and Medad are acting as prophets in the camp!
28 Then Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses from his young manhood on, responded and said: "My lord Moses, restrain them!
29 However, Moses said to him: Are you feeling jealous for me? No, I wish that all of Jehovah's people were prophets, because Jehovah would put his spirit upon them! (Numbers 11).

It is truly amazing that the ambiguity in Numbers 11 as to whether Eldad and Medad are to be taken in addition to the 70 men is reflected in our current historical uncertainty as to whether it was 70 or 72 men who translated the LXX. 

There is evidence that the law was translated first by the 70 and then the rest of the old testament was translated by others at a later date. This corresponds with the inspired statement that God took some of the spirit that was upon him [Moses] and put it upon each of the 70 older men, indicating that the LXX is inspired only in the law of Moses. We are saying that Numbers 11 is a prophecy that the law of Moses will be witnessed to by a further 70 men. We say this because the concept that the true God somehow did not have enough holy spirit to go around and so he had to remove some from Moses in order to have enough for the 70 older men is ridiculous. Since the true God ‘spoke to him and took away some of the spirit’, we must assume that by removing this spirit, he is then going to speak to the 70 men in the way that he spoke to Moses. Therefore the removing from Moses must mean that the inspired word of God through Moses needs to be completed by the words of a further 70 men [For Moses is now incomplete in holy spirit - Ed.]. These men therefore have to be the translators of the LXX, because we know of no other 70 who are candidates for speaking in an inspired way as a complement to Moses. So we deduce that the Pentateuch of the LXX is inspired, in one codex at the least.

Which Codex of the LXX is inspired, the LXX Codex Vaticanus or the LXX Codex Alexandrinus (in the British Museum) ?

We compare the BHS with the LXXv (Vaticanus) and the LXXa (Alexandrinus) as regards the History of Shem in Genesis 11. We put the LXXv in [brackets].

10 This is the history of Shem. Shem was 100 years old when he became father to Arpachshad 2 years after the deluge.
11 And after his fathering Arpachshad Shem continued to live 500 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
12 And Arpachshad lived 35 years. Then he became father to Shelah (in 2334).
13 And after his fathering Shelah Arpachshad continued to live 403 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
14 And Shelah lived 30 years. Then he became father to Eber.
15 And after his fathering Eber Shelah continued to live 403 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
16 And Eber lived on for 34 years. Then he became father to Peleg.
17 And after his fathering Peleg Eber continued to live 430 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
18 And Peleg lived on for 30 years. Then he became father to Reu.
19 And after his fathering Reu Peleg continued to live 209 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
20 And Reu lived on for 32 years. Then he became father to Serug.
21 And after his fathering Serug Reu continued to live 207 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
22 And Serug lived on for 30 years. Then he became father to Nahor.
23 And after his fathering Nahor Serug continued to live 200 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
24 And Nahor lived on for 29 years. Then he became father to Terah.
25 And after his fathering Terah Nahor continued to live 119 years. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
26 And Terah lived on for 70 years, after which he became father to Abram, Nahor and Haran (Genesis 11 - BHS)

Shem was 100 years old when he begat Arpachshad 2 years after the flood. And Shem lived after he had begat Arpachshad 500 years and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Arpachshad lived 135 years and begat Cainan. And Arpachshad lived after he begat Cainan 430 [400] years and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Cainan lived 130 years and begat Sala (Shelah) and Cainan lived after he begat Shelah 330 years and begat sons and daughters and died. [Jehoiada and Cainan and Daniel were thought to have died, the human bodies died, but Melchizedek's spirit was raptured so as not to see death]
And Shelah lived 130 years and begat Heber (Eber). And Shelah lived after he begat Eber 330 years and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Eber lived 134 years and begat Peleg. And Eber lived after he begat Peleg 370 [270] years and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Peleg 130 years and begat Ragau (Reu). And Peleg lived after he begat Reu 209 years and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Reu lived 132 years and begat Seruch (Serug). And Reu lived after he begat Serug 207 years and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Serug lived 130 years and begat Nahor. And Serug lived after he begat Nahor 200 years and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Nahor lived 79 years [179] years and begat Tarrha (Terah). And Nahor lived after he begat Terah 129 years [125] and begat sons and daughters and died.
And Terah lived 70 years and begat Abram Nahor and Haran (Genesis 11 - LXXa [LXXv]).

Melchizedek got a total of 600 years after Jared in Cainan (360??), Jehoiada (130), Daniel (106/7?) and Simeon (3/4?) being the greater Noah of Genesis 7.

We know from Stephen that:

4 Then he went out from the land of the Chaldeans and took up residence in Haran. And from there, after his father died, [God] caused him to change his residence to this land in which you now dwell (Acts 7).

We also know from the BHS that Terah died aged 205 years.

32 And the days of Terah came to be 205 years. Then Terah died in Haran (Genesis 11).

The LXXv has Nahor living for 308 years, which would mean that he was non adamic.
The LXXa has Eber living for 134+370=504 years, which would mean that he was non adamic.

In the table above:

p = Physical generation, fathering
s = Holy spirit baptism, generation, being born again as an angel

We resolve the apparent contradiction between the two accounts by realising that the priest of the family was the father, in the patriarchal times of Genesis 11, so he would baptise his sons. For the baptism into the name of the son, which is the sanctification in holy spirit, which is the gift of a clean conscience, a cleanliness of spirit, a temporary forgiveness of sins in the future, as opposed to a cleanliness of flesh, which is achieved by the bath of the flesh, and is a permanent forgiveness of sins in the past, is in fact the creation of an angel. This is how one becomes a son of God, literally - see Intro12. This generation from above, is the generation that the LXX is referring to where it differs from the BHS. The next thing to realise is that whereas the BHS has ‘continued to live for x years’, the LXX has ‘and he died’. So it suffices for the total age in the BHS to be less than or equal to the total age in the LXX, because the father did not necessarily die at the end of the period as defined in the BHS, but he did at the end of the period as defined in the LXX.

Eber physically lived for at least 34+430=464 years according to the BHS. So the LXX Alexandrinus must be the inspired text, because 134+270=404 of the LXX Vaticanus, is too short. Furthermore the 370 years that Eber lived after he fathered/generated Peleg must be consecutive with the 134 years, the period before the spiritual generation, because 34+370=404 is again too short. So we know that Eber lived actually for 370 years after he baptised Peleg, which he did when he was 134 years old, so he lived for 504 years.

So the LXX Vaticanus is corrupt, as one might imagine from its location. Just this one discrepancy is enough given that one or other of the Alexandrinus and the Vaticanus is inspired and therefore perfect (for God must preserve one good copy it seems to us).

In the case of Shem, he lived for 500 years not after the baptism in holy spirit of Arpachshad, but after the physical birth of Arpachshad. So the living after the ‘generation’ in the LXX translation can be either after the physical generation or the spiritual generation. We have marked which one is which using ‘p’ and ‘s’ in the column.

The above reconciles the two accounts. And Cainan was a son, probably the firstborn, of Arpachshad. We know this because since Arpachshad baptised him when he was 135, he must have been his physical father, since the father was the family priest. Now Cainan must have resurrected Shelah before Shelah fathered Eber, which he did aged 30, in order that the genealogy of Luke holds true. Furthermore it is a divine principle that one cannot act as a priest until one is 30 years old. This is the law at Numbers 4 and was obeyed by both John the Baptist and Jesus, both of whom were non adamic priests. So Cainan would have to have been 30 before Shelah was 30. Since Arpachshad had Shelah when we was 35, and since nobody was fathering anybody much before they were 30 in the days of Shem, we can deduce that Arpachshad gave birth to Cainan when he was between 29 and 34, so Arpachshad did not live to be older than 480 years. For argument's sake we will assume he was 30. In which case Cainan was 5 years older than Shelah, so he could have resurrected Shelah when Shelah was 25, this would have been in the year starting 2309Tishri.

Now Cainan was non-adamic but he was not sanctified until Arpachshad was 135 years old, which would be too late for him to resurrect Shelah. Because to resurrect someone, you have to be declared righteous, and own your own life. Therefore we deduce that Cainan was possessed by an angel and this combination resurrected Shelah. This is in fact why Cainan was born non adamic, because he was going to be possessed by an angel.

So we now know that Cainan was Melchizedek and that Eber was non adamic and therefore possessed by either Michael or Gabriel (Melchizedek was in Cainan at the time). 

Incidentally even though the LXXa is inspired as far as the Torah is concerned, the first 5 books of Moses, this does not necessarily mean that it is written in the bible code. It may just have a true literal meaning.

Melchizedek, Gabriel and Michael, the triple act

We know that Gabriel as John before Michael came as Jesus in the first century. We know that Melchizedek came as Cainan before either Gabriel or Michael came as Eber after the flood. We know that Jared, Enoch's father, housed either Melchizedek or Gabriel before Enoch housed Michael. And Methuselah, Enoch's son housed the other one after Enoch. So a pattern is emerging here of three appearances of Melchizedek, Gabriel and Michael, in that order, with them all being around, or at least all three of their human vehicles being a round at the same time at some point. Now 'Jared' in Hebrew dry means 'descent' and 'Methuselah' means 'man of the missile', or 'man of the dart'. The former could apply either to Gabriel who descended as an angel or to Melchizedek, since he would have descended as an embryo. By 'Melchizedek', we mean the non adamic human in the pre flood system, who re-appeared as Melchizedek in the post flood system. Joseph and the first horseman of the apocalypse are both men of darts, having bows. Michael is a man of a sword, the second horseman. Joseph and Gordon have a priesthood related to Gabriel. Methusaleh died in the year of the flood. 

Now we know from Jesus' baptism by John, that an angel cannot just 'enter' a non adamic human, there must be a non adamic priest present. So Jared cannot have housed Gabriel, Melchizedek must have come first. So Jared was Melchizedek, and Methuselah housed Gabriel, after he had finished procreating. Holy angels do not procreate inside humans. And truly Jared was the first after Adam to be born from God after the manner of Adam, motherless, fatherless and without genealogy in the sense that he did not have true human parents, he would have had surrogate parents like Jesus. For Jesus is not called the SECOND ADAM, he is called the LAST ADAM. So Jesus was not the second Adam - Jared/Melchizedek was!! 

For the same reason that Gabriel cannot just posses a human without a priest presiding over his entrance, neither can Melchizedek. So in his appearances after Jared, Melchizedek just appears as himself in adult form one presumes, in order that he can preside over the entrance of Gabriel into his next non adamic host. In this way too, Melchizedek is fatherless, motherless and without genealogy. In fact Melchizedek keeps descending all by himself, hence the Hebrew name Jared [meaning descent]. Now when the scripture says that Melchizedek had no beginning of days nor end of life it means that he did have a beginning of life and will have an end of days. His life began when he possessed Cainan, but this was not when his days began, they began in the pre-flood system in Jared. So Melchizedek in the peri-flood system had no beginning of days. Melchizedek lives forever, and in particular he lives longer than the earth does and so he does have an end of days (which days are defined by the earth) but not an end of life.

So who was the third of them at the time of Cainan and Eber? Well in the case of John the baptist we realised that anyone who is named by God before he is conceived in the womb is a son of God and not a son of Adam or his fleshly father. 

21 Now when eight days came to the full for circumcising him, his name was also called Jesus, the name called by the angel before he was conceived in the womb (Luke 2).

But Isaac fulfils this criterion:

15 And God went on to say to Abraham: As for Sarai your wife, you must not call her name Sarai, because Sarah is her name.
16 And I will bless her and [so] definitely give you a son from her; and I will bless her and [so] she shall become nations; kings of peoples will come from her.
17 At this Abraham fell upon his face and began to laugh and to say in his heart: Will a man 100 years old have a child born, and will Sarah, yes, will a woman 99 years old give birth?
18 After that Abraham said to the [true] God: O that Ishmael might live before you!
19
To this God said: Sarah your wife is indeed bearing you a son, and you must call his name Isaac. And I will establish my covenant with him for a covenant to time indefinite to his seed after him.
20 But as regards Ishmael I have heard you. Look! I will bless him and will make him fruitful and will multiply him very, very much. He will certainly produce 12 chieftains, and I will make him become a great nation.
21 However, my covenant I shall establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this appointed time next year (Genesis 17).

1 And Jehovah turned his attention to Sarah just as he had said, and Jehovah now did to Sarah just as he had spoken.
2 And Sarah became pregnant and then bore a son to Abraham in his old age at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him.
3 Accordingly Abraham called the name of his son who had been born to him, whom Sarah had borne to him, Isaac (Genesis 21).

So Jehovah called Abraham's son to be Isaac before Sarah became pregnant. So Isaac was non adamic. Isaac was born in 1918, and so was a contemporary of Cainan who lived for around 460 years and was born around 2340 so died around 1880 after Abraham as good as offered up Isaac. So Isaac was Michael after he had given birth to the twins. This is why Abimelech said to him:

29 You now are the blessed of Jehovah (Genesis 26).

In this case who was Melchizedek at the time of John and Jesus? 

25 And, look! there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon, and this man was righteous and reverent, waiting for Israel's consolation, and holy spirit was upon him.
26 Furthermore, it had been divinely revealed to him by the holy spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Christ of Jehovah [hmm, he saw Michael in Enoch as Jared].
27 Under the power of the spirit he now came into the temple; and as the parents brought the young child Jesus in to do for it according to the customary practice of the law, 
28
he himself received it into his arms and blessed God and said:
29 Now, Sovereign Lord, you are letting your slave go free in peace according to your declaration;
30 because my eyes have seen your means of saving 
31
that you have made ready in the sight of all the peoples,  
32
a light for removing the veil from the nations and a glory of your people Israel.
33 And its father and mother continued wondering at the things being spoken about it.
34 Also, Simeon blessed them, but said to Mary its mother: Look! This one is laid for the fall and the rising again of many in Israel and for a sign to be talked against. 
35 Yes, a long sword will be run through the soul of you yourself, in order that the reasonings of many hearts may be uncovered (Luke 2).

Some Priest this Simeon. He didn't receive any pigeons after the manner of Aaron (the stipulated redemption sacrifice for a poor person under law in the case of a firstborn son on the 41st day, the 33rd after the circumcision) he received Jesus into his arms. He was a slave of God. One cannot help thinking that the one who sent John baptising was Simeon:

33 Even I did not know him, but the very one who sent me to baptize in water said to me: Whoever it is upon whom you see the spirit coming down and remaining, this is the one that baptizes in holy spirit (John 1).

The way this all works is that Melchizedek presides over the entrance of Gabriel and Gabriel presides over the entrance of Michael. Except the in first case when Melchizedek presided over the entrance of Michael into Enoch and then Enoch presided over the entrance of Gabriel into Methuselah.

Paul says of this great and amazingly complicated priest Melchizedek:

1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him and to whom Abraham apportioned a tenth from all things, is first of all, by translation:
2 King of Righteousness, and is then also king of Salem, that is: King of Peace.
3 In being fatherless, motherless, without genealogy, having neither a beginning of days nor an end of life, but having been made like the Son of God, he remains a priest perpetually.
4 Behold, then, how great this man was to whom Abraham, the family head, gave a tenth out of the chief spoils (Hebrews 7).

So here are 4 designations for him. And the King of Salem was the one who received one tenth of everything from Abraham. A prophetic gesture if ever there was one - see [43]. So the King of Righteousness was Jared, and the King of Peace, well, this must be a designation for the Kingdom of God. We will be seeing this one again, surely as the earthly King of the Kingdom of God.

Jehoiada, Elijah and Elisha

We know that Jehoiada was non adamic and was a priest. Now both Elijah and Elisha resurrected sons of Adam during the Alienation Times. 

21 And he proceeded to stretch himself upon the child 3 times and call to Jehovah and say: O Jehovah my God, please, cause the soul of this child to come back within him.
22 Finally Jehovah listened to Elijah's voice, so that the soul of the child came back within him and he came to life (1 Kings 17).

32 At last Elisha came into the house, and there the boy was dead, being laid upon his couch.
33 Then he came in and closed the door behind them both and began to pray to Jehovah.
34 Finally he went up and lay down upon the child and put his own mouth upon his mouth and his own eyes upon his eyes and his own palms upon his palms and kept bent over him, and gradually the child's flesh grew warm.
35 Then he began walking again in the house, once this way and once that way, after which he went up and bent over him. And the boy began to sneeze as many as 7 times, after which the boy opened his eyes (2 Kings 4).

It is not possible to resurrect a son of Adam, mediating life to him, unless you possess your own, which means that you are sealed in spirit, declared righteous in the spirit. This is what Paul declared that he had when he said:

8 From this time on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me as a reward in that day, yet not only to me, but also to those who have loved his manifestation (2 Timothy 4).

James and Jesus refer to it as the crown of life:

12 Happy is the man that keeps on enduring trial, because on becoming approved he will receive the crown of life, which Jehovah promised to those who continue loving him (James 1).

It was possible for sons of Adam to get this declaration which is the baptism into the name of the holy spirit during the Alienation Times, which ran from 2488Sivan to 33Sivan - [128], [129]. But it was not possible for sons of Adam to get the gifts of the spirit during this period - with which to resurrect someone. So Elijah and Elisha were both non adamic. We know that Elijah came first and handed over to Elisha when he ascended in the windstorm recorded in an incredibly prophetic account:

11 And it came about that as they were walking along, speaking as they walked, why, look! a fiery war chariot and fiery horses, and they proceeded to make a separation between them both; and Elijah went ascending in the windstorm to the heavens.
12 All the while Elisha was seeing it, and he was crying out: My father, my father, the war chariot of Israel and his horsemen!
And he did not see him anymore. Consequently he took hold of his own garments and ripped them into two pieces (2 Kings 2).

Jehoiada ordered the killing of Athaliah in 898, and Elijah was told to anoint both Jehu and Elisha in 905:

16 And Jehu the grandson of Nimshi you should anoint as king over Israel; and Elisha the son of Shaphat from Abel-meholah you should anoint as prophet in place of you (1 Kings 19).

For the chronology of this period see [91]. So Jehoiada, Elijah and Elisha were contemporaries. So Jehoiada was Melchizedek, Elijah was Gabriel and Elisha was Michael.

Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel

This is what God said to Jeremiah:

5 Before I was forming you in the belly I knew you, and before you proceeded to come forth from the womb I sanctified you. Prophet to the nations I made you (Jeremiah 1).

So Jeremiah had a previous existence, a previous soul in fact, either angelic or human. He was sanctified before he was born, so he was born again before he was born! This is only the case with non adamic humans. So Jeremiah was one of the three. The Gospels give us a clue as to which one:

13 Jesus went asking his disciples: Who are men saying the Son of man is?
14 They said: Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets (Matthew 16).

We know that Gabriel was in both Elijah and John, so we are presumably being told that Gabriel was in Jeremiah too. And that Gabriel was in another one of the prophets. There is a further reference to this in Luke:

7 Now Herod the district ruler heard of all the things happening, and he was in great perplexity because of its being said by some that John had been raised up from the dead, 
8
but by others that Elijah had appeared, but by still others that a certain one of the ancient prophets had risen (Luke 9).

So there must have been two contemporaries of Jeremiah who were Melchizedek and Michael. These are the only two prophets said to be 'son of man' not by men, but by God and by Gabriel:

17 Son of man, a watchman is what I have made you to the house of Israel, and you must hear from my mouth speech and you must warn them from me (Ezekiel 3).

17 So he came beside where I was standing, but when he came I got terrified so that I fell upon my face. And he proceeded to say to me: Understand, Oh son of man, that the vision is for the time of [the] end (Daniel 8).

The only other 'son of man' in the bible is Jesus. So what does it mean to be a 'son of man' ? Or like the crowd said:

Therefore the crowd answered him: We heard from the Law that the Christ remains forever; and how is it you say that the Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of man? (John 12:34).
In our best understanding, 'son of man' means one who provides offspring in the form of man before he sinned, i.e. a further uncondemned Adam. Someone who provides indefinitely living human offspring. Michael certainly can do this, being the eternal father, as opposed to Adam, the temporary father:

6 For there has been a child born to us, there has been a son given to us; and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9).

Melchizedek, being non adamic himself can also do this, one presumes. So we have Daniel and Ezekiel as Melchizedek and Michael.
But if Gabriel in Jeremiah is the prophet to the nations, then it must be Michael in Ezekiel who is the watchman to the house of Israel, for he was the prince of Israel according to Gabriel:

21 However, I shall tell you the things noted down in the writing of truth, and there is no one holding strongly with me in these [things] but Michael, the prince of you people (Daniel 10).

So Daniel was Melchizedek, and Ezekiel was Michael.

The 12 Comings of the Christ and the 24 appearances of the three leading actors

In addition to the comings mentioned above Jesus also came to Joshua as the Prince of the army of Jehovah...

14 No, but I as the prince of the army of Jehovah, I have now come (Joshua 5),

before he came as Jesus in 2BC to start the 120 year first presence. That makes 6 comings. Then he came as Michael for his earthly ministry as Jesus for 3˝ years, then he came again to appoint FDS2. Then he came after the first presence to remove FDS2 then he came to start his second presence in 1887Sivan10. Then he came to appoint FDS3. Then he came to appoint FDS4. That makes 12 comings in all. The final coming at Armageddon is after this system ends. There are 12 in all because Jesus said:

50 The master of that slave will come on a day that he does not expect and in an hour that he does not know (Matthew 24:50).

40 You also, keep ready, because at an hour that you do not think likely the Son of man is coming (Luke 12:40).

And there are 12 hours in the day:

9 Jesus answered: There are 12 hours of daylight, are there not? If anyone walks in daylight he does not bump against anything, because he sees the light of this world (John 11).

Here are his 12 comings in this system in tabular form - see U101 for dates:

1st Jared Methuselah Enoch
2nd Cainan Eber Isaac
3rd Jehoiada Elijah Elisha
4th Daniel Jeremiah Ezekiel
5th Simeon John the Baptist Jesus
6th during Armageddon Melchizedek Gabriel Michael

So we have 6 triple appearances and 6 more comings of the Christ making 24 appearances in all.

In fact Michael in Enoch was transferred so as not to see death in the first triple appearance in this system, and Gabriel in John the Baptist, was transferred so as not to see death in the last triple appearance in this system (the 6th triple appearance is in the Kingdom of God).

Michael also possessed Jesse, the father of David
