There are order or ranks of angels in heaven – see this link – https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200000277 and also the 144, 000 who would have rank in heaven as heavenly spirit to become as priests to God and to be kings in heaven to rule over the earth along with Jesus Christ – Revelation 5:9, 10; Revelation 3:21; 1 Corinthians 15:24, 25. Thus, the order of ranks of angels in heaven gives strong meaning and indication that there are higher position of angels in heaven.

Jesus as mentioned as the king of kings and lord of lords is the same as the chief of higher  angels (compare Jehovah as the prince of princes in Daniel 8:25) whose  higher angels are the 144,000 kings and priests of God and are the same as princes (compare 1 Corinthians 8:5).

Jesus is the chief angel and denote as the archangel as only one but as to the ranks in heaven there are higher ranks among angels specifically the 144,000 anointed class.  Jesus is a prince since he is the leader of armies in heaven and Jehovah is the prince of princes that would include Jesus automatically. An indefinite noun “a” can be used when to show attributes as to differentiate to others or which may show sameness to others of the same class or group. For example, Jehovah is a God of justice and truth is proper in rendition when to  show attributes as of being God who is in the class of gods (compare Deuteronomy 10:17) who can also show justice and truth like the judges or magistrates called by God to act for it (see Psalms 82:6; compare Revelation 20:4)

There are word chief/chiefs in the Bible – https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/s/r1/lp-e?q=chiefs&p=par&r=occ    but this term cannot be used to the Greek word “arch” of the word “archangel” for this only fit to a singular position and for one person only as the chief of angels none other than to Jesus or MIchael.

The Greek word “archangel” (https://biblehub.com/greek/archangelos_743.htm) comes from the words “archo” which means beginning, rule or ruler (https://biblehub.com/greek/757.htm) and “aggelos” which means messenger, angel or angels (https://biblehub.com/str/greek/32a.htm). Thus the only meaning of the word “archangelos” is the ruler of angels or the prime angel (the chief angel). Also, the word “archo” which also means “beginning” would definitely exactly relate to Jesus as it is through him that all other things were created through him in heaven and on earth. (Colossians 1:16). And if to use the word of “beginning” to the  word “arch” for “archangelos” this would have a parallel meaning as the “beginning of (all) the angels.” Remarkably, this would mean literally as Michael is the beginning of all angels which would directly refer to Jesus as the very beginning of works or creation by God (Proverbs 8:22-24,  Colossians 1:15; Revelation 3:14). 

Assumed: Jesus is an angel. [the proof is in above], Michael is the Archangel (in the Bible) and assumed with Biblical proofs that Jesus and Michael are leaders of armies in heaven.  Prove: Jesus is the Archangel.

LEGEND: AA = archangel; J = Jesus; M = Michael; LA = the leader of armies in heaven;

Jehovah is called Jehovah of armies ( these includes all angels in heaven – see this link –  https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200002396 ) and since Jesus is the leader of armies in heaven, he is definitely the chief of angels in heaven or the chief angel or the chief of armies in heaven and since Michael has his angels in heaven and since there is no separate groups of angels in heaven for Jesus, and since Michael is the Great Prince as stated in Daniel 12:1,  it is therefore to conclude that Michael and his angels means Michael and all his angels (as they are the ones who fought against Satan and his demons in Revelation 12:7-12) and Jesus and all his angels are the same group and so Jesus is Michael the archangel. Michael as one of the foremost princes in Daniel 10:13 means there is a major prince in heaven. Who is that? When you look Daniel 8:25 it tells towards to the true God as it is affirmed in Daniel 8:11 – see the comments of Ellicot and Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges here – https://biblehub.com/commentaries/daniel/8-25.htm . Also, in Daniel 10:21 it states that the angel speaks to Daniel with regards to the Prince Michael as his/their prince indicating of the prince for God’s people and Daniel 12:1 states the words “the sons of your people” (originally the Israelites) refers to the God’s people (God’s nation) in the last days when the Great Prince Michael will stand on that particular time unto the great distress or great tribulation and unto salvation of God’s people on that particular time i.e. on Armageddon (the last day of Great Tribulation as state in the book of Revelation.) His stand is his action for God’s people. The only legitimate for this position and authority is Jesus Christ. The word “stand” denotes an action taken for or of taking relative position for something or someone. See this link – https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/stand .

Additional Proofs: Jesus is the Chief Agent – Hebrews 12:2; Acts 3:15 Agent means representative or somebody used as an instrument. An angel is a representative of God and acts as an instrument of God – see many Biblical verses [ex. Genesis 19:1 – 26] Thus, the Chief Agent means the Chief Representative of God = the Chief Angel of God. One thing Jesus name is not his name in heaven (compare his preexistence in heaven in Micah 5:2; John 1:1,2 Colossians 1:15; Revelation 3:14; *Proverbs 30:4) because in Matthew 1:21 Jesus name was named as Jesus because he is going to save his people that’s why his name presumably in Hebrew is Yeshua or Yehoshua as accepted by many Bible scholars and religious groups which literally means Jehovah is salvation (YHWH [LORD God] is Salvation). How come his name in heaven on his preexistence would be Jesus when it was named Jesus BECAUSE he will save some meaning he is to named Jesus because he would become a savior to his people. That is why there is a major reason why his name is to be named Jesus. One thing, Jesus existed in the beginning – before the creation of everything – from billions of years ago and in addition to this, Adam and Eve are created to live forever on earth but it was not fulfilled – see Genesis 1:26 – 30; Genesis 2:15 – 17. Thus, originally the aim of God is not to save anyone but to let the mankind live forever on earth. Therefore, Jesus original name would not be Jesus as Jesus is the beginning of the ways of God – the very first creation by God – Proverbs 8:22,23, 24; Colossians 1:15; Revelation 3:14 thus, Jesus name would be exactly the same as Michael which literally means “Who is like God?”-  (http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200003035)or “Who can be equal to God?”  – https://biblehub.com/str/hebrew/4317.htm ;    or a literal phrase meaning of “who that was of God” since he was begotten of God – see this link of the Hebrew word ki for the Hebrew name mi ka el — https://biblehub.com/hebrew/ki_3588.htm or “who is because by God (who is through God/who is by cause of God)  which means “who becomes because of God” as someone who existed because and by way of God – see the etymology of because here -https://www.etymonline.com/search?q=because      — or “who is for God” or “who was indeed of God/ who was surely of God”  as someone who came out or brought up originally by God which really fits to Jesus Christ as the only begotten son from a father and as the only begotten god as stated in John 1:14, 18 – see Genesis 18:20 (https://biblehub.com/interlinear/genesis/18-20.htm), Genesis 21:31 (https://biblehub.com/interlinear/genesis/21-31.htm) and Genesis 37:35 (https://biblehub.com/interlinear/genesis/37-35.htm) for the Hebrew word “ki” it  could be translated too as “who is indeed as God? or “who is surely as God?” which also mean as “who is also the true God?” or we could have also another translation as “He who is like (the) God (i.e. The Godlike) or “He who is Godlike” – since he was the exact representation of God – the image of the invisible God and that he is a god and a godlike (compare Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 1:3; John 1:18; Isaiah 9:6; 1 Corinthians 8:5; ***Psalms 8:5 – see the hebrew word of godlike (angels) which is “meelohim” – http://biblehub.com/interlinear/psalms/8-5.htm) See also the Hebrew word for angels here – https://biblehub.com/str/hebrew/4397.htm . So we could have this translation [i.e.Godlike] with regards to Jesus as someone who is an image and representation of God in terms of his participation in creations and his total qualities in relation to God’s qualities. Thus, he is like God (but not exactly the God) – the exact representation of his Father or of his God but explicitly says they are not one – Revelation 6:16, 17; Revelation 1:1; Revelation 3:12, 21.). The same thing with name Michael with other persons in the Bible and other renditions as to relate to Genesis 1:26 that human are in the image like of God that may show and possess qualities like of God but not totally exactly the same as of God.  The angel spoken in Judges chapter 13 may be Michael (Jesus) as he said that seeing his name is a wondeful one which we may seen above.

The words “the Angel of the LORD [Jehovah] in the Bible may refer to any of the angels of God whom God sent for a purpose or as a messenger in behalf of him. This may not always direct to Jesus as the Angel of God, though in Joshua 5:13-15 it really refers to Jesus as he is the Prince of Jehovah’s army. The term “the angel of God” may refer generally to the angels of God. In Job 1:6 the angels of God are called as the sons of the true God the same thing in Job 38:7 as to characterize their action upon the creation of God. In English grammar, if a teacher has his students, then all his students could be taken as the student of him if to call as one by one. Thus, for example in this statement, “The student of Mr. X brought the news.” All students of Mr. X may stand possible for such statement as they are all students of Mr. X but for a specific student among the students there is a student who brought the news. Also, if another student of Mr. X whose definite action has done and stated by a person, the other student may be called also “the student of Mr. X. ”

    see also the link below of the word — i am = eimi followed by the verb “standing”

    on John 3:28 – (I am) – https://biblehub.com/interlinear/john/3-28.htm

    The original Greek text of John 3:28 of the words “I am” which is only “eimi” would mean that John refers to himself and not God as to be equated by some as “I am”. If you would notice the preceding words “I am” has complete Greek words “ego eimi” which means “I am” but on the latter words only “eimi” was there which literally would denote also as “I am” just like in some verses of the only words “eimi” that had been used in the book of Matthew. But you could also see the flow of the words in its original thought as John is saying that he is not the Christ but that he had been sent before Jesus Christ or ahead of Jesus Christ in fulfillment of the prophecy in Malachi 3:1 in which it refers to John the baptizer who will prepare the way of Jehovah (the true Lord) and whom the messenger of the covenant will come (i.e. Jesus Christ) whom the Jews are very delighted in anticipation from the prophecy of Isaiah and the book of Daniel about the prophecies on the coming of the Messiah – https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/study-bible/books/malachi/3/ — Also, the “eimi” word was not repeated anymore which indicates that the words “I am” is not different from John but refers to himself. If “I am” refers to one as another person the translation should have at least indicate another Greek word “ego” which means “I” to denote the person John which the translations would give “I am sent I” or a Greek word “me” which means “me” that refers to John that would separate the word “I am” which would refer to another person — see this link — https://biblehub.com/greek/me_1473.htm . Did the writer John forgot only the word “ego” or “me”? before the word “before him”. That would be doubtful considering that all manuscripts (I supposedly believe) have found out that it was only “eimi” and not “ego eimi” or “eimi me” or “ego eimi me” to which can give a literal translations of “I am sent me” (before him). In further analysis on this text, since we know that the “ego” was not present on the second of “eimi”, which could mean as “I am” among other same Biblical texts which we can find as same translation, the word “eimi” on the second appearance would say that John was sent. In a clearear view of the literal transliteration of it we have “I am sent before him.” which is not really good in English translations that is why the translators are force to translate it as “I have been sent before him.” – “I am” now literally means “I have been.” which will make a congruence with John 8:58 as to the words of Jesus Christ of his existence and thus the translations is equally to write as “I have been.:” Some may argue that in John 8:58. it has “ego eimi” which they may say can be translated as “I am I” if to accept the rules of whatever the position of the Greek words comes first. But this would not also refer to the title as claim by the others as to the one “I AM” but rather the exact transliterations of the word “ego eimi” would only mean as “I am” of becoming (to be/to become). And since “eimi” has a transliterations equivalent as “become” and since John 3:28 calls for the “eimi” to translate it as “I have been” and since Jesus was referring to Abraham of his becoming (existence) – “genesthai” (to be, to become) the only thought of Jesus Christ on his passage is his existence prior Abraham. Therefore, by having this analogy, we could have the proper translations of John 8:58 of the words “ego eimi” as “I have been” which has also a translation equally to “I exists.”

  2. About Jesus as Michael the archangel. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 shows that Jesus will descend WITH a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet. This denotes all at the same time. The commanding call of Jesus is for resurrection and this is in relation to John 5:28, 29 with regards of the voice of Jesus Christ in resurrection and also in one example of Jesus voice when he called Lazarus into resurrection John 11:43 with his voice of call or with the command of his voice. If there is another angel calling, then it violates the position and authority of Jesus on the process of resurrection as he is the one for that position. And also Hebrews 1:5 speaks as someone that God has told to that specific angel as the son of God. The same thing in Hebrews 1:13. If for example among the students, the principal of the school ask, ‘with regards to the representative with authority, “To which one of the students did you ever say, “You discuss and write this in the class and you explain this to them”?’ That cannot violate the fact that the teacher may call one student to be the representative to have authority to do the commanded thing to him. Is he not part of the group or of the class of students. Of course, he is. He belongs to the class and that he is a student. The same thing with Jesus, he is an angel belongs to the class of angels and therefore, if he is an angel with the voice of having archangel as the quality of his voice that is describes then it suggests literally that he is the archangel. For how come he would imitate or describes his voice as of another angel as to an archangel when he is above all the angels? Therefore, he should be the archangel and no one else. As he has the name given by God above his companions. – Philippians 2:9

  3. In the passage of Exodus 3:14 of the Hebrew words “ehyeh aser eyeh” which has a literal translations of “I am who I am” among other Trinitarian translations is acceptable also. However, the translations denotes a more deeper meaning of the original words. The speaker introduced himself as he is what and who himself. The speaker is telling of his total nature of his being or becoming as of being someone who would like to prove and show himself. By simplicity of the meaning, the speaker holds the claims of his becoming of whatever he wants to become or whatever he wants to prove as to the time calls for it. Moreover, in the LXX the translations “I am, the One Being” explicitly means that the speaker is someone showing himself as to who he is and as to what he will be to show and prove something. Thus, the more acceptable translations of Exodus 3:14 is “I will be who I will be.” which has a very parallel meaning with regards to the name of God (YHWH) as to the verb (HaWaH) which literally means “to be” or “to become”. The Divine Name of God (YHWH) literally means “He causes to become.” or “He becomes.”
