    Jehovah's Witnesses do not like to make definitive public statements on who Jesus was and is. So, here is what they believe:
    • Michael the Archangel is the first and only creation of God.
    • Michael created everything else
    • Michael became Jesus when incarnated
    • When he resurrected he was once again Micheal
    • Jesus as 'a god,' not 'God.'
    For more, here is a good source.

    Them believing Jesus is a god created by God is not very good thinking, in a way it says that God created Jesus to be a pagan deity. Jesus is Lord and above all creation because He made it, He is God in the flesh.

    A Human can never be GOD, And Jesus was a human who ate & did what all humans do. But the Almighty can give certain powers to any Human.

    Remember what happen to Moses when he asked God to manifest God to him.

    There is only One God and he rules the Universe by his command. Jesus will return to earth and inform all humans this same message.

    I don't believe the human flesh of Jesus is God.

    His flesh is fully human and his spirit fully God.

    Neither can human flesh be an angel, either. Yet, you believe Jesus was Micheal the Archangel.

    Exodus 25:8-9

    And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, [after] the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make [it].


    In Exodus God came down and dwelt with His people Israel. The tabernacle was constructed as a buffer between sinful man and a Holy God. God is Holy, man is lawless. Israelites dropped like flies not knowing the true character of God. It was not a pretty sight. That was a part of the lesson we were to learn from it all.

    In the New Testament you have God taking on humanity. He "tabernacled" among His people. He took on the form of a servant, left the blinding Glory behind and came here to work.

    You may choose to not believe it. You may not like it. That does not change the fact that it happened.

    I made a big mistake here. JohnDefoe is a Muslim, not a JW.

    This part of my statement remains accurate.
