I think most likely you are referring to the concept of "Son of Heaven" which was declared the emperor as the metaphorical offspring of the Jade Emperor. It was less that these rulers were receiving messages as that they would naturally act in accordance with the Will of Heaven, being naturally virtuous to a divine degree.

You may also be referring to the prehistorical Shang Dynasty oracle kings who either used oracles or considered themselves oracles who used divination practices to decide the suitability of certain courses of action.
