I have been editing the chapters of my next book, My Journey, which I wrote last year, giving the history and purpose of God’s Kingdom Ministries from 1981-2017. It is actually about 14 books in all, which I plan to combine and publish in a few large hardback volumes.
I have written the story up to 2017, when the great transfer of authority occurred from the beast systems to the saints of the Most High (Daniel 7:27). The final segment (2017-2024) is still ongoing, so it has not yet been written. Yet I have been reporting prophetic events as we go, and this information will be used when I finish the final book in the series.
It is clear by now that much of this final book will involve Bradley Tyler and his father, John, as I first came in contact with them in May 2019. It started out with John’s appeal to assist in protecting them against some very powerful enemies. In the past 18 months this was brought to a new level when Bradley’s face-to-face encounters with God, angels, and even some demonic entities increased to daily occurrences.
Face to Face
I believe that Adam and Eve talked to God face to face, but this specific phrase was not used in the biblical account. The first time the phrase was used was in regard to Jacob. Genesis 32:30 says,
30 So Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, “I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been preserved.”
He was referring to the wrestling match with the angel Peniel. That was certainly a face-to-face encounter.
Next, we read about Moses who had many such face-to-face encounters with God. Exodus 33:11 says,
11 Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend…
So there is biblical precedent for face-to-face encounters with God, although this seems to be rare, except for the high priests, who alone were allowed to enter the Most Holy Place once a year in the presence of the Shekinah glory over the Ark (Leviticus 16:32, 33, 34). This was a face-to-face encounter with God as well, even though this specific phrase was not used to describe it.
Perhaps the phrase was not used, because God knew that some of the high priests did not enjoy the same relationship with God that Moses had. Perhaps they were high priests by position but not by relationship with God.
There were, however, two priesthoods operating side by side throughout the Old Testament. The Melchizedek priesthood was the oldest, dating back to Adam but being first referenced in Genesis 14:18 in reference to Shem, the first king of Jerusalem. The Melchizedek anointing at that time was part of the birthright. But when Jacob divided up the birthright, the priesthood went to Levi, the scepter went to Judah, and the Sonship provisions went to Joseph.
In regard to the priesthood of Levi, we later see that Moses and Aaron represented the two types of priesthood. Moses was a priest of the Melchizedek Order; Aaron was of the newly-created priestly order of Levi. Both were qualified to go into the tabernacle’s Most Holy Place, but it appears that Aaron could enter it only once a year, whereas Moses could enter it at will.
This, I believe, shows the superiority of the Melchizedek Order.
Years later, David Himself, who was specifically called “a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek” in Psalm 110:4, ministered as the high priest of that order at “the tabernacle of David” (Amos 9:11; Acts 15:16). David was of the tribe of Judah and therefore was not qualified to be a priest after the Aaronic Order. No doubt he too spoke to God face to face on his property (“Zion”) where the Ark had been relocated, and this is evidence of his Melchizedek calling.
As Christians, we believe that Jesus Christ was also the high priest after the Order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 7:11, 17). He too spoke to His Father face to face, as evidenced especially on the Mount of Transfiguration (Luke 9:29-31).
Hence, we have much biblical precedent for face-to-face encounters with God, even though John 1:18 KJV and 1 John 4:12 KJV tells us that “No man hath seen God at any time.” In John 1:18, John tells us that “the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.” John was referring to Jesus’ ascension to “the bosom of the Father” many years after he penned these words.
The point is that when Jacob, Moses, and David spoke to God face to face, they were seeing some (undefined) manifestation of Jesus in His pre-incarnate state. Likewise, Abraham entertained and spoke to “Yahweh” and the two angels as they were on their way to visit Sodom. The name Yahweh appears in Genesis 18:13 as the One speaking to Abraham.
However, since the name Yahweh was not revealed to Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob (Exodus 6:2, 3), we find Abraham referring to Yahweh by the name/title, Adonay (Genesis 18:30, 32). The name Yahweh was revealed to Moses at the burning bush, and so when he wrote the book of Genesis, he used the name. However, Abraham himself did not know God by that name.
The point is that Abraham also spoke to God face to face, for he was the heir of Shem, the high priest of the Order of Melchizedek.
Heavenly and Earthly Priests
Overall, it appears that face-to-face encounters with God are experiences of those who are called as earthly high priests of the Melchizedek Order. Now we know that Jesus Christ received that calling when He was baptized by John. John was the true high priest of his day, though Caiaphas was the recognized high priest in the temple. John, I believe, was of the Zadok order that had replaced the line of Eli (1 Kings 2:35). Zadok was a type of Melchizedek.
When John died childless, his calling as a Melchizedek high priest was passed down to his first cousin, Jesus.
Fast forward to today.
Bradley Tyler is obviously an unusual prophet in the world today. I have spoken with him many times face to face on internet calls. I talk to John almost every morning (evening his time) to get updates on the revelation and the progression of events. Bradley occasionally interrupts us with a fresh word from God. The family finds written messages around the house.
There is biblical precedent for written messages, such as the Ten Commandments and the handwriting on the wall in the time of Daniel.
Last week God told Bradley that He had written a message for his father. He searched the house but could not find it. John then opened up his computer and discovered the message written there. John’s computer is password locked, and only John and God know the password. John sends me most of these messages so that we can discuss their meaning.
I have pondered this method of communication, as it is very unusual. It is certainly beyond my own personal experience in hearing God’s voice. It seems to me that this is a Melchizedek form of communication. To speak to God face to face is the biblical privilege of a high priest in the Melchizedek Order.
The question is whether there can be a high priest in both heaven and in earth at the same time (on two levels). There is no question that Jesus Christ is the High Priest in heaven. In fact, I believe He was the Melchizedek High Priest in heaven even while Shem, Abraham, Moses, and David occupied that same position on earth.
When Jesus ascended to heaven after His resurrection, the Melchizedek Order continued to exist on earth. The question is if there have been earthly high priests of Melchizedek AFTER His ascension, or if this was just limited to the Old Testament era. Until recently, this question had not even arisen in my mind. It never occurred to me that there might be a king-priest on earth.
Roman Catholics, of course, would have no problem with such an arrangement, because they are used to thinking that the popes have the title Pontifex Maximus, “high priest.” In my view, the popes are more akin to the order of Eli (high priest) and Saul (king). They rule by their own will, not by the will of God, and therefore, the popes have served as counterfeits.
Yet if there is a counterfeit, there must be something real to counterfeit. I learned that principle decades ago.
If Bradley is indeed this king-priest arising in the earth, then what would be its purpose in the divine plan? First, he would be a type of Christ (as many of us are in other ways). Second, it seems that the divine purpose would be to build and secure a throne for Christ that He could occupy at His second coming. The earthly proxy would not be in a state of rebellion and disobedience, as were Eli and Saul, but would follow the pattern of David, who, though imperfect, was correctible.
Overall, we see that God is building His Kingdom, and He is using us to do the earthly work by the power of the Spirit. Perhaps part of that work is to build a throne and to establish whole nations that swear allegiance to Christ and to follow His laws. It seems to me that we are in the beginning stages of that work after a long captivity to the beast nations.
