The above quotations should answer any doubts we might have, but a Bible study will confirm it, as shown below.   There are also many Spirit of Prophecy statements that reveal the truth that Michael is indeed God's Son.  

The subject of Michael is an interesting one.   Seventh-day Adventists are the only denomination that believes Michael is Christ.  Other Christians think this is very wrong, and in fact, some become angry about it.

Michael -- mi-cha-eyl , means -- Who is like God.   (The 'cha' is said with a gutteral sound like the German)

When speaking to Daniel, Gabriel said Michael is "Your Prince"(Daniel 10:21), and later that He is "the great prince"(Daniel 12:1).

​Sister White said of Michael, "What great honor is shown to Daniel by the Majesty of heaven! He comforts His trembling servant and assures him that his prayer has been heard in heaven. In answer to that fervent petition the angel Gabriel was sent to affect the heart of the Persian king. The monarch had resisted the impressions of the Spirit of God during the three weeks while Daniel was fasting and praying, but heaven's Prince, the Archangel, Michael, was sent to turn the heart of the stubborn king to take some decided action to answer the prayer of Daniel."    Reflecting Christ  p90.

​We wonder why our prophet said "heaven's prince, the Archangel Michael", as it certainly looks like it is an angel, however, when we study the subject in the Bible, we see that "heaven's Prince" is Christ.

A prince is the son of a king, and in this case, Michael, "heaven's Prince" is the Son of the King of the universe.

Michael the Archangel

"Then there was war in heaven.  Michael and his angels fought against the dragon.  And the dragon fought and his angels."  Revelation 12:7.


Our prophet begins with the same words.  "There was war in heaven.  The Son of God, the Prince of heaven, and His loyal angels engaged in conflict with the archrebel and those who united with him. The Son of God and true, loyal angels prevailed; and Satan and his sympathizers were expelled from heaven."  Lift Him Up p19.

"... when He comes the second time, divinity is no longer concealed. He comes as One equal with God, as His own beloved Son, Prince of heaven and earth."   (Isa. 24:23).  In Heavenly Places p357.

We hope you have been blessed to go over the subject again .

Our prophet said:   "We must not make a mockery of our faith, but ever keep before us the example of Him who, though He was the Prince of heaven, stooped to a life of self-denial and sacrifice to vindicate the righteousness of His Father's word. Let us each resolve to do our best, that the light of our good works may shine forth to the world."   9 Testimonies. p69. 70. (1909)  CM 3.

"It was incomprehensible to the selfish soul of Satan that there could exist benevolence and love for the deceived race so great as to induce the Prince of heaven to leave His home and come to a world marred with sin and seared with the curse."   Confrontation p30.

"Satan... knew that ancient prophecies foretold a kingdom to be established by the Prince of heaven upon the earth, which he claimed as his dominion. This kingdom would embrace all the kingdoms of the world, and then his power and his glory would cease... "  Ibid. p30. 

"The Prince of heaven was among His people. The greatest gift of God had been given to the world."   Desire of Ages p277.

"The Prince of heaven was called Beelzebub, and His disciples will be misrepresented in like manner." Desire of Ages p355.

"Ever remember that you have One by your side who says to you, 'Be not afraid'. 'I have overcome the world'. Bear in mind that Christ came as the Prince of heaven, and has engaged in an eternal warfare against the principles of sin."  Fundamentals of Christian Education p465.

"The Prince of heaven has placed man in an exalted position. His life has been valued at the cost of Calvary's cross..."  Amazing Grace p83.

"It is a great thing to be meek and lowly in heart, to be pure and undefiled, as was the Prince of heaven when He walked among men."   Ibid p109.

"And now before the swaying multitude are revealed the final scenes,--the patient Sufferer treading the path to Calvary; the Prince of Heaven hanging upon the cross..."   Great Controversy 1888 p667.

​"The love expressed on Calvary should be revived, strengthened, and diffused among our churches.... As you stand before the cross, and see the Prince of heaven dying for you, can you seal your heart, saying, 'No; I have nothing to give'?"  Counsels on Stewardship p16.
