Question
Bro. Sal where in scripture is Micheal the Archangel referred to as Jesus, also isn't it written in scripture, God has never said to any angel sit at my right hand.

Answer
Dear Sister Penny:

You ask: Where in scripture is Michael the Archangel referred to as Jesus? The answer: Nowhere.

You correctly note that God never told any angels to sit at His right hand in heaven. “But to which of the angels has He ever said: ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool’”? (Hebrews 1:13 NKJV quoting Psalm 110:1). No angel was ever told such a thing. Jesus is no mere angel.

“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, ‘You are my Son; today I have become your Father’? Or again,
‘I will be his Father, and he will be my Son’? And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him’” (Hebrews 1:3-6 NIV).

I pray that this helps you. If you have any other questions or concerns just let me know.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving Day.

Expertise

I am privileged to be able to offer an alternative insight into the complicated world of Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) theology. I will rely heavily on the Bible, but will also consider history and use logic in exposing deficiencies in SDA teachings. I would ask anyone who is considering becoming a SDA or if you are already in the SDA church, but are searching for the truth, to please allow me to offer a different explanation for the claims of the SDA. Remember : "The truth will set you free" (John 8:32). I can answer your questions pertaining to the beliefs and history of the SDA. I am not able to answer questions concerning spirituality or church discipline.

Experience

I have extensively studied the theology of the Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) for a number of years. I have many books and tape sets produced by experts in this field of study. I have debated current members of the SDA church. I have a great desire to help these people see the truth.
