Michael the archangel or Jesus? They are clearly not the same.

Jesus = God. He made Michael. That should be enough to answer the question.

Going with this^^^.

God/Jesus/The Holy Spirit are all the same so they are more powerful. Besides that, Michael is an angel. Angels are servants of God. He doesn't really have any say in God's workings or decisions. He pretty much has to obey orders.

so why isn't the son as powerful as the father? Why does the father know the 2nd coming but not Jesus?

Jesus is God. He is "as powerful as the father".

When he made that statement in Matthew 24:35-37 ( "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father) he was speaking as a human.

While here on earth in his human form, Jesus conformed to human limitations to be as much like us as possible.

So as a human he had to grow, learn, and acquire wisdom the way we humans do.

Once he returned to heaven his humanness was gone and he had no more limitations.

God the Father is the creator of all power in Heaven , and of the earth ...As Jesus took the inheritance by the cross and the blood shed for His Judgment was given all power from Father God , as all use of Power come through the blood of Jesus Christ and His judgment , So if there is not judgment through the blood of Jesus , then there is no power given , so people need to repent of sin would be the best way for the judgment of Christ to be exercised ............... Archangel Michael alone has the same power as the devil , both are equal , as they were created with same power ............ But when we add the blood of Jesus , then devil would be overwhelmed by a power beyond the devil given to archangels ............. As we see in Jude 9 says .........``Yet Michael the archangel when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses , exclaimed that not to being against the devil railing accusation , but said `The Lord rebuke you`.... See Archangel Michael power was equal as all he could do is say `The Lord rebuke you `............ Christians who exercise the prayer of the Blood of Jesus Christ through their prayers for others , as the Holy Angels of the blood will have more power when Christians pray more , where if they do not pray the blood of Jesus then the Holy Angels assigned to the Christians would have very little power , as they would be like sitting on the fence idle
