Greetings, salutations, and shalowm, Brother Qu-innocence.Hey Bro Lee, I promised to get with the rest of your previous post.
Concerning Michael, he is only one of the Chief Angels according to Daniel as he was fasting and praying to God. Look what the angel told Daniel:
"But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, ONE OF THE CHIEF PRINCES, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia."
Now I'm not sure what those angels names are... I think the Catholics mentioned Rafael, Uriel... I'm just going from old memory and not exactly sure where they got that from. I know the Gnostics have their own version and some even worship Angels... part of the reason why Paul and John wrote the way they did, to refute the Gnostic heresies.
But I do know that there is an innumberable company of angels according to the scriptures... hebrews 12:22... and more than one chief angel... according to the scripture at least.
If it's one thing I have no pleasure of getting into, it's the subject of titles. Even the title "God," as you're more than likely aware of, is shared among many, including mere men. "Prince," too, is shared among many, including our anointed Savior. If I may share with you a couple of examples, please...
Acts 5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Savior...
Acts 3:15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead, whereof we are witnesses.
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called...The Prince of Peace.
Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.
NOTE: At Revelation 12, the angels are said to belong to Michael, as Michael appears as the leader in this war. But, at Revelation 19, our anointed Savior appears as the leader. I believe both are one and the same.
I'd also like to refer you to 1Thessalonians 4:16. In this verse, it's written that our anointed Savior is going to return "with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God." I believe this voice is his own and not one from a lesser authority.
In light of what you've just read, understand that the title "chief" is just that and can be shared, too. It's also believed that Gabriel is a "chief" angel, by many. But, at Daniel 12:1, we read about Michael again, and in a greater light than even Gabriel.
What say you, my Brother?
Again. Saying that the name of our anointed Savior, while in heaven, is Michael doesn't change who he is, nor his position. It just sheds light on his person. "Michael" means "Who Is Like God?"
