Taking the Michael, Is Jesus really an Angel?

Happy New Year Everyone, we have a lot of great things planned for the coming year but to start it off here is an excellent poem by our friend Lucy Markell, asking is Jesus really Michael?

  1. Great job Lucy .

    The Watchtower’s spirit creature Michael is not Jesus Christ . Jesus is more special than a archangel because all angelic creatures properly render worship to Jesus — Heb 1:6 .

    This is yet another doctrine that the Watchtower has shown to be inconsistent about . The Watchtower wants everyone to accept it as the sole reliable guide to use in gaining a accurate understanding of what the Bible teaches , yet an examination of it’s teaching track record reveals a pattern , a pattern that suggests confusion about important Bible doctrines .

    The teachings in Watchtower publications claim to be spiritual food from Jehovah and not the opinions of men [ see W.t. 7-1-1958 p 406 ] . The 1936 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses , p 63 stated :

    ” No human creature is entitled to any credit for what appears in The Watchtower . All honor and credit is due to the Lord . Jehovah God and Christ Jesus are our teachers , and every one who reads The Watchtower rejoices in the fact that the Lord is pleased to use that magazine to aid his people in understanding the truth . ”

    These claims ring hollow when one looks at what the Watchtower has taught as ” Bible based ” truth :

    At one time the Watchtower taught that Jesus was NOT Michael ! [ W.t. magazine 11-1- 1879 p 4 ] .
    The Watchtower book , The Finished Mystery ( p 188 ) taught that the interpretation of Rev 12:7 where it mentions ” Michael ” was that Michael in that verse was the Pope !

    Going further:
    In the book of Daniel it states that Michael is ” one of the chief princes ” ( 10:13 ) . Thus for many years the Watchtower taught that there are archangels among God’s heavenly angelic family [ W.t. Dec. 1882, p 3 ; the W.t. book , Creation p 19 ; also W.t. 4-1-1932 , p 105 ] .

    Yet now the Watchtower teaches that there is only archangel — Michael . [ What Does The Bible Really Teach ? p 218 ] .

    Such doctrinal vacillation concerning a fundamental teaching of the Bible is a red flag that something is wrong , and in this case the Watchtower’s claim to be a consistent reliable guide to use in understanding the Bible is what’s wrong , it’s an erroneous claim .

    The Lord Jesus Christ is not the Watchtower ‘s spirit creature Michael , He’s much more special and unique than that .That’s the Bible’s testimony .
