My time in God’s word this morning had me me litterally shaking with discovery. I never believed Jesus was Michael but this morning God showed me proof. Follow me:
Daniel 10 documents a vision of A man clothed in linen, a belt of gold, eyes like fire, wearing a linen garment, having feet like copper, with a voice like a multitude. Daniel falls down as asleep before him and the man touches him and says do not be afraid.
Revelation 1:12-17 and 2:18 document an exact match for the identity of this person Daniel saw. It was the son of man. Jesus.
Returning to Daniel’s account in vs 13 we see that this person in the vision (Jesus) was withstood by the prince of Persia for 21 days. And who came to help him!?
MICHAEL one of the foremost princes!

See Watchtower 2015, 5/15, “Questions from Readers.” Also Insight on the Scriptures, Vol. 2, article on “Michael.” Both of these can be viewed at http://www.jw.org in the publications library.
This is great. I’m adding to it the other one that I know:
Daniel 12:1 says that “at that time Micheal will rise (or stand up).” Watchtower teaches that this is fulfilled in Revelation 19:17, which describes “an angel standing.” Carefully read Revelation 19:11-21, and it can be seen that there are two beings there, both the angel and Jesus. Jesus is seated on a horse both before and after the standing angel is mentioned. You can show a passage where both Jesus and Michael are in the same place at the same time, but are two separate beings.
Awesome! I may add that info to the bottom of this entry. (In case people don’t see your comment). Thanks!
I’m trying to find the source of that idea and can’t. Any idea where to find watchtower teaching about revelation 19:17 being the fulfillment of Michael standing up? thanks 🙂
