NO ONE has given Bible Scriptures here which says that Michael 'an' archangel is Christ. No one proved that Mormon/JW doctrine true. True?

Update:

There's to date been no Scriptures supplied here on R + S saying that Christ is really Michael 'an' archangel...true?

Update 2:

SDA THEY also preach this doctrine which is one of blasphemy.

    No, and as we have said so many times, there never will be any scriptures which say that Michael the Archangel is Christ because HE ISN'T and he never will be.

    Jesus Christ is the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the Alpha and the Omega. Jesus Christ is God so He had no beginning or end.

    Michael the Archangel is merely a created being just as we humans are created. Jesus Christ is the CREATOR HIMSELF (John 1:3)

    Angels have been TOLD TO WORSHIP JESUS (Hebrews 1:6) who has been called GOD and who has His own Throne and is called God by the Father Almighty (Hebrews 1: 8 & 9).

    Also when Jesus was born, His Name was called "Everlasting Father" (Isaiah 9:6) and He was also Immanuel which means when interpreted, GOD WITH US because that's who Jesus is GOD WITH US IN HUMAN FLESH.

    The Archangel Michael and Gabriel are merely angels and can never be Jesus Christ however much they would want to

      Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our forefathers, has glorified his Servant, Jesus, whom you handed over and disowned before Pilate, even though he had decided to release him.

      Jesus really IS a servant!

    Whilst there is sufficient evidence from scriptures already cited and quoted in this thread, there is no need to speculate. Rather more importantly is the fact that in his role as reigning king in the heavens. Jesus is poised to command the heavenly angels to carry out his father's command to bring about armaggeddon and cleanse the earth of all wickedness and restore the earth to its original purpose. Psalms 37: 8-11 and verse 29 is a preview of that great event.

      Think about that. Jesus was and is no respector of persons.

    Not directly. Archangel means Chief of Angels. It’s a title. Jesus has many other titles ie the Word, the Lamb, etc. You need to read the context in order to reach that conclusion.

    Rev 12:7-10 reads as follows:

    “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and HIS ANGELS* battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled.... 10 I heard a loud voice in heaven say:“Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God!”

    2 Thess. 1:7: “...when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with *HIS POWERFUL ANGELS*.”

    *Marc 8:38: “.. WHEN HE COMES IN THE GLORY OF HIS FATHER WITH THE HOLY ANGELS.”

    1 Thess. 4:16: “because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first.”

    Excuse me, Einstein, but Latter-day Sint Christians do not claim that Jesus is Michael incarnate. Educate yourself a little. So I have to say True, with some reservations.

      Also Mormons have additional scripture, including the Book of Mormon, the Book of Abraham, and the prophecies of Joseph Smith and his successors. And they believe the Bible we have today isn't the same as when it was originally written.

    I do not know that the Mormons believe that Jesus is the heavenly commander of the angels. But Jesus certainly believes it.

      It is fitting not because of the name, but because of Jesus' attitude toward viewing his God and Father Jehovah as the only true God. Many are called God, but there is no one like his God, whom he calls no other being. “I am the Divine One and there is no other God, nor anyone like me" Isaiah 46:9

    The apostles believed Jesuswas God's HOLY servant and son. So that's what I believe.

    Acts 4:29-30 ASV

    ..Lord, look upon their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants to speak thy word with all boldness, ...and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of thy holy Servant Jesus.

    If you believe Jesus is God, do you believe he's also his own servant? If he's a servant, he has a superior that he serves and reasonably CANNOT be the Most High.

      True in a physical sense, but JWs are sick spiritually. Let me give you a quote from the greatest physician of all "You MUST be Born again".

    The word archangel means chief of the angels.”The Bible mentions only one archangel, and his name is Michael. Daniel 12:1

    Michael is the Leader of God’s army of faithful angels. Revelation 12:7 says: Michael and his angels battled with the dragon and its angels.

    The book of Revelation says that the Leader of God’s army is Jesus, so Michael is another name for Jesus. Revelation 19:14-16.

    True, there isn't a single scripture that says Jesus is also known as Michael.

    Yet

    Why do many trinitarian scholars also teach this?

    Why did many of the 1st century writers also teach this?

    Matthew Henry's Commentary states:

    "Christ is that great prince, for he is the prince of the kings of the earth," (Dan 12:1)

    J. N. D. Kelly, in his Early Christian Doctrines, writes about the view of Hermas regarding the Son of God:

    “In a number of passages we read of an angel who is superior to the six angels forming God’s inner council, and who is regularly described as ‘most venerable’, ‘holy’, and ‘glorious’. This angel is given the name of Michael, and the conclusion is difficult to escape that Hermas saw in him the Son of God and equated him with the archangel Michael.”

    When did trinitarians stop teaching this simple truth?

    When Jehovah's Witnesses started to used it to prove Jesus isn't God, but God's Son.

      Concerning sons obeying their fathers - the fourth commandment and Proverbs 6:20 stated this. But the sons of Korah did not obey their father in apostasy, so now they are known in the Bible as eloquent praisers of Jehovah in music, because they knew their first loyalty to the Heavenly Father.
