Hello Pilgrimshope, I do appreciate your responses as Iron Sharpens Iron, but in my post asking the question: Is Michael Another Name For Jesus? I wondered what kind of responses to receive for correction, because while reading the article: Who Is Michael, The Archangel? So I started searching in Google for answers but so far found none.
amen brother studying and then discussing the Bible is where you find answers to all Our questions about the Bible
Just This single whole chapter seperates the son of God from all angels pretty definitively just as God is defined apart from angels so Jesus is defined as God
who created the angels to fill the heaven and the men to fill the earth he made in the beginning Jesus is defined as the creator of all things I believe at least five times in the New Testament unless we say Micheal is the creator and God himself there’s no chance micheal was manifest on earth as Jesus
“being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, This day have I begotten thee?
And again, I will be to him a Father, And he shall be to me a Son?
And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
And of the angels he saith,
Who maketh his angels spirits, And his ministers a flame of fire.
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever
: A sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; And the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest:
And they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, And they shall be changed: But thou art the same,
And thy years shall not fail.
But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, Until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”
Hebrews 1:4-8, 10-14 KJV
just a chapter like that really makes a clear distinction between Jesus and anyone else angel or man in scripture beginning with a statement like this it’s pretty powerful witness
“hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
by whom also he made the worlds
; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person,
and upholding all things by the word of his power
, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;”
If we can’t say this of Micheal
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: and he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;”
Colossians 1:15-19 KJV
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh,
justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
1 Timothy 3:16 KJV
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
John 1:1, 10, 14 KJV
Instead of “Is Jesus really Micheal “
The question is “ is Jesus really the one God and father , the creator of all things manifest in the flesh , so we can know him and believe ?”
“If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also
: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him
Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us
unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;
and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?”
John 14:7-9 KJV
If we discover Jesus is the lord God manifest in the flesh then we understand Micheal the angel is his servant
