In Jude 9, why couldn't Michael the Archangel make a judgement against the Devil?
9 But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”[a]
Jude 1:9 (New Century Version)
9 Not even the archangel[a] Michael, when he argued with the devil about who would have the body of Moses, dared to judge the devil guilty. Instead, he said, "The Lord punish you."
Jude 1:9 archangel The leader among God's angels or messengers.
Michael the Archangel is God's Son, also called Jesus Christ (1 Thess. 4:16)
So if he said the Lord/Jehovah God would do the rebuking, how can he be equal with God and the same?
