The Father Melchizedek is the original or firstborn Melchizedek Son, and in Nebadon there is one.  He is Gabriel's executive associate and chief executive of Gabriel. Father Melchizedek is the one who assumes the position of Gabriel in his absence.  He never absents from Salvington if Gabriel is not there.  He is always free to travel to other local universes in the interest of his order.  He created the local universe Melchizedek Sons in a creative act in union with the Creator Son and the Mother Spirit.  He created the Spirongas in a creative act together with Gabriel.  He directs the so-called stabilization corps of the local universe when all of it enters the stage of light and life.  In the Paradise classification he belongs to beings of dual origin and descending orders.  Presides over emergency commissions and advisory bodies.  Represents Michael in the deliberations of the Life Carriers.  There is a simple temple at the entrance of Father Melchizedek's house with an inscription recalling Michael's first incarnation as a Melchizedek Son.  He was with Jesus and Gabriel on the Mount of Transfiguration, and the apostles who managed to see him mistook him for Elijah.
