We must look at the context to determine whether a human or spirit messenger is meant. In this case, we have the Messenger of God who is also God. Clearly, there is only one entity fitting this description. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger [ malak ] of the covenant [that is, Jesus Christ, Mediator of the New Covenant], in whom you delight.
A prophet? But He is not like the other spirit messengers of God. The word translated as messenger in Mal is the same word [H, mal'ak] used in the previous passages of the old testament where we saw the phrase angel of the Lord. So this would also be a proper translation:.
Michael (archangel) - Wikipedia
Mal Behold, I will send my angel , and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the angel of the covenant , whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. Christ shall come to his temple, and purify the priesthood.
They that continue in their evil ways shall be punished: but true penitents shall receive a blessing. And presently the Lord, whom you seek, and the angel of the testament, whom you desire, shall come to his temple. Behold he cometh, saith the Lord of hosts. That covenant likely being the one made to Adam and Eve in Genesis , that a redeemer would come to rescue a fallen humanity, or in addition, as we have previously noted, it was Jesus who appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai in the burning bush, and He also gave the Ten Commandments to Moses on tables of stone, which were placed in the container known as the ark of the covenant.
Therefore, in Malachi both John the Baptist and Jesus Christ are referred to as angels, or messengers, in the broadest sense of the meaning of the word. An angel in scripture can simply be a messenger, without meaning the created heavenly winged-being that most associate with the term. This is the key point to be made, Jesus can be referred to as an angel messenger without detracting from His deity in any way at all.

Gal Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first. Gal And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God , even as Christ Jesus. So now, what of Michael the arch angel?
Is it so difficult to believe that he may actually be Jesus Christ? Let's look at each instance he is mentioned in the Bible and see-. Who raises the dead with His voice? Not a created angel, indeed not even a created archangel. John For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; John And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
John Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, John And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. It is the voice of Jesus Christ the Son of man that raises the dead. Just as 1 Th says, the Lord Jesus shall descend from heaven and shout with the voice of the Archangel, because He is the Archangel.
With that shout, the righteous dead will be raised from their graves! The prince of the kingdom of Persia is a reference to Satan, and Michael refers again to Jesus. It is the created angel Gabriel that is speaking with Daniel See Dan , The reference to Michael as one of the chief princes probably alludes to the Trinity, with Jesus being one part of the triune Godhead. Dan But I will show thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.
Tradition Identifies Archangel Chamuel as the Angel
Gabriel says that only he and Michael know certain truths which Gabriel will reveal to Daniel. Dan And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. Dan And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Michael standing up is a reference to the second coming of Jesus at the end of time when He delivers His people, those listed in the Lamb's book of life, to include resurrecting those that sleep in the dust to everlasting life. Some might propose that, in these three preceding texts from Daniel, the description of Michael as a mere prince is inappropriate for Jesus, so it must be speaking of a created angel. Note the following verses:. Dan Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
Acts But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; Acts And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. Acts The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Acts Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
Rev And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,. Rev And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, Josh And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?
Jesus: Not an Angel but the Angel
And Joshua did so. If this were a mere angel, then the angel would have protested Joshua worshipping him, just as the angel protested John the Revelator worshipping him Rev That is why he stood on holy ground and was asked to remove his shoes just like Moses was asked in Exo and Acts Deuteronomy But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.
