    Some might think that when it stated that Jesus returns with the voice of the archangel, that means that he was Michael?

    But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Heb 2:6
    But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, From Heb 2:9

    Was the higher worshiping the lower?

    Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: Phil 2:9

    What name did he give him and when was it given to him?

    Jesus Christ is eternally Almighty God. For the purpose of salvation He became the God-Man at His Incarnation, as passages like Phipippians 2:5-11 teach. During His time on earth, He was subject to the Father, and a Servant and died on the cross for the sins of mankind. For this period Jesus was in a sense "made a little lower than the angels", of whom He is eternally their Lord and God. This time is also known as that of His "humility". Versions like the KJV fail to show the actual meaning of the Greek text, which really is very important, "But we see him who for a little while (βρᾰχύς, a short time) was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.". As this is limited to Jesus' duration while on earth. As we can see from passages like Phipippians 2:5-11, even though Jesus "became flesh" (also John 1:1,14), yet He always remained Almighty God, which is seen in "μορφη θεου" (the very nature of God), in which Jesus remained (υπαρχων, existing), even after His Incarnation. As He IS Almighty God, He could never cease to be God in His nature, and was always Worshipped as Almighty God, even during His time on earth, where there are a number of instances where He was worshipped, and never forbade it (see, Matthew 14:33; 28:9; Luke 24:52; Hebrews 1:6, etc)

    The answer to your next question, is in the next verse, 10, "Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the Name that is above every name, so that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth. You will notice that the Apostle Paul here quotes from Isaiah 45:23, where the Speaker is Yahweh, "By Myself I have sworn; from My mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance". By doing so, Paul here shows the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who IS eternally YAHWEH.

    If Jesus is Jehovah, and Mighty God, then what exactly does this mean, if not that He IS GOD? You make your claims that are not based on the Holy Bible, and attack when evidence is produced from the Bible, that you don't agree with? Can you explain Isaiah 9:6, where Jesus is "The Mighty God" (El Gibbor), which is the exact same Hebrew used in 10:21 (El Gibbor), where it is Jehovah?

    How do you know that the Angel of the LORD is not and cannot be the Archangel? Zechariah 3:2.

    The Pharisees understood his claim to being the God of the Hebrews, as they got him nailed upon the Cross for "claiming to be God"

    If Yeshua1 does not mind here, I would like to give my response to this. Firstly, as I have brirfly shown in the link in #85, "the Angel of the LORD", is the Lord Jesus Christ, in His pre-Incarnate Appearances in the Old Testament. Secondly, there is NO Biblical evidence that teaches that Michael, who is the Archangel, is Jesus Christ. Thirdly, As the Bible cleary teaches that God created ALL the heavenly hosts, including angels, are created beings: "Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts...Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created (bârâʼ)" (Psalm 148:2, 5). Fourthly, Jesus Christ is called both in the Old Testament, and New Testament, YAHWEH", The Name which means, "the uncreated, eternal One"; which makes it impossible for Jesus Christ to be a created being, which is what Michael the Archangel is!

    You really do not understand. The Person who is the Man Jesus Christ is also Yehwah too. And is not at issue. God is not a man (Hosea 11:9) and the man is not God (1 Timothy 2:5). Now the Son of God is now both. And this is not at issue. What is at issue is asking to prove something that is true that is not found in the Bible. Such as Trinitarians who believe Jesus and the Archangel are the same person because the Son of God is the Angel of the LORD/Yehwah.
