Who is like unto God because He is the Son of God.
Amo, I believe you are a good man (in the sense in which we use that phrase) but you need to reconsider some of your understanding of the Godhead. It is true that Jesus Christ was God manifest in human flesh~but it is not biblical
to teach that God WAS Jesus Christ, because he WAS NOT. God is a Spirit, always has been, ALWAYS will be that inhabits eternity from everlasting TO everlasting, that will NEVER change.
God was the Father of Jesus Christ making Jesus Christ ONE IN HIS DIVINITY with
the Godhead! God is a Spirit that NO MAN hath seen, or will see! Jesus Christ is the VERY EXPRESS IMAGE of WHO God is, and when we see Jesus, then will be brought to past such verses as:
Matthew 5:8~Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God."
Enough for now on this point.
Whether He take the form of an angel to angels or humanity before His incarnation, or whether he become fully man as He did for our salvation, yet He was still fully God and therefore the only one who is literally like unto God
There was NO Jesus Christ UNTIL he was conceived in the womb of a young virgin girl named Mary around two thousand years ago per the testimony of the Holy scriptures. Those appearances of angels in the OT
were just that...ANGELS....
and when they spoke or acted in doing the will of God, it was as though God himself was speaking and doing the deeds
. God is a Spirit that will never be altered in any way whatsoever! Jesus Christ was the Son of God, born two thousand years ago, that can NEVER be altered of change
, try to alter or change the testimony of the holy scriptures and one will at once take a step to reject the teachings of the Godhead as it is revealed to us from the very testimony of God himself!
Therefore do Michael the archangel call forth the dead from their graves as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ declared that He himself would.
Again, whatever God uses to do his will in that day, will be as God himself is doing the act thereof! Will he use the voice of an archangel, in sounding the trumpet to call forth the dead in the graves? Yes. Will he use the angels to gather together his elect from the four winds of heaven in that day? Yes, but that does not mean that the Son of God IS Micheal for he is not, no more than he is Gabriel.
Therefore was Michael the archangel sent to call Moses forth from the grave, and therefore did Michael tell Satan when he disputed with Him about the body of Moses, the Lord rebuke you. He was the Lord, though Satan refuses to acknowledge such, he could not prevent the Lord from raising the body of Moses.
Not sure where you are speaking about, Michael was never sent to call Moses from the grave
! You're confused. The scriptures said this:
Verse nine~"Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee."
It is beyond controversy that Moses was buried by the Lord, that is, that his grave was concealed according to the known purpose of God
. And the reason for concealing his grave is evident to all, that is, that the Jews might not bring forth his body to promote superstition~and without question they would have. What wonder then is it, when the body of the prophet was hidden by God, Satan should attempt to make it known; and that angels, who are ever ready to serve God, should on the other hand resist him? And doubtless we see that Satan almost in all ages has been endeavoring to make the bodies of God's saints idols to foolish men.
Michael is here introduced as disputing against Satan~which we take to believe that AMONG ANGELS when created there was certain RANKS/AUTHORITY GIVEN BY GOD TO THEM. We know that myriads of angels are ever ready to render service to God; He created them to do his business as he pleases. Michael is mention as a comparison, as they say, between the greater and the less
. Michael dared not to speak more severely against Satan (though a reprobate and condemned) than to deliver him to God to be restrained and JUDGE, but those men (that Jude has and will mention) hesitated not to load with extreme reproaches the powers which God had adorned with peculiar honors. Michael the archangel refuse to speak evil of Satan, but reserve that judgment to the Lord
(that is~the Lord Jesus Christ in that day:
1st Timothy 6:15~"Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;"
He will show that he IS Michael the archangel's Lord as well~and IF his Lord, then he is not
Michael, but greater than Michael, or else he would have rebuke Satan, JUST AS HE DID during his days on this earth when he went into Satan's house and spoiled his goods and at times said get thee behind me Satan, for thou savourest not the things that be of God! Enough for now.
