"'Let all the angels of God worship him'; (that must include Michael , the chief angel, hence Michael is not the Son of God)"


The Finished Mystery (SS-7), 1917 ed., p. 188

"Michael, - 'Who as God,' the Pope"


The Watchtower, February 1, 1991, p. 17

"Jesus Christ further deserves honor because he is Jehovah's chief angel, or archangel. On what basis do we reach that conclusion? Well, the prefix "arch," meaning "chief" or "principal," implies that there is only one archangel. God's Word speaks of him in reference to the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. We read: "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." (1 Thessalonians 4:16) This archangel has a name, as we read at Jude 9: "When Michael the archangel had a difference with the Devil and was disputing about Moses' body, he did not dare to bring a judgment against him in abusive terms, but said: 'May Jehovah rebuke you.'" In not running ahead of Jehovah by daring to bring judgment against the Devil, Jesus thus honored his heavenly Father."

"In 1914, Jesusthe heavenly warrior Michael became King of God's heavenly Kingdom. (Revelation 11:15; 12:7-9)"

" The book of Revelation explains: "War broke out in heaven: Michael [the resurrected Jesus Christ] and his angels battled with the dragon [Satan], and the dragon and its angels battled but it did not prevail, neither was a place found for them any longer in heaven."


The Watchtower, July 15, 1995, p. 5

"The Bible also describes what happened shortly after Jesus' enthronement. It says: "War broke out in heaven: Michael [Jesus Christ] and his angels battled with the dragon [Satan the Devil], and the dragon and its angels battled but it did not prevail, neither was a place found for them any longer in heaven."


The Watchtower, November 1, 1995, p. 8

"The foremost angel, both in power and authority, is the archangel, Jesus Christ, also called Michael."
