Lets put that egregious lie to rest with holy scripture.
Hebrews 1 New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus Christ Is God’s Son
1 Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. 2 And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe. 3 The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. 4 This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.
The Son Is Greater Than the Angels
5 For God never said to any angel what he said to Jesus:
“You are my Son.
Today I have become your Father.[a]”
God also said,
“I will be his Father,
and he will be my Son.”[b]
6 And when he brought his supreme[c] Son into the world, God said,[d]
“Let all of God’s angels worship him.”[e]
7 Regarding the angels, he says,
“He sends his angels like the winds,
his servants like flames of fire.”[f]
8 But to the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever.
You rule with a scepter of justice.
9 You love justice and hate evil.
Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you,
pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”[g]
10 He also says to the Son,
“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth
and made the heavens with your hands.
11 They will perish, but you remain forever.
They will wear out like old clothing.
12 You will fold them up like a cloak
and discard them like old clothing.
But you are always the same;
you will live forever.”[h]
13 And God never said to any of the angels,
“Sit in the place of honor at my right hand
until I humble your enemies,
making them a footstool under your feet.”[i]
14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.

It does not say it directly. But, Archangel means Chief of Angels. The only ones that could be called “Chief” in heaven is God or His Son Christ who is obviously and without a doubt in a higher rank than an angel. Jesus Christ is the Son of God and King of God’s Kingdom. If you look at 1 Thessalonians 4:16 it implies the Archangel is Christ as it says he has the power to resurrect the dead. It says there that he will descend from heaven with a commanding call with an archangel’s voice and that the dead...he will rise.... No one else in heaven has such a great power and authority, only God and His Son Christ.
1 Thessalonians 4:16: “the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first.”

NLT has significant differences in translation to NIV that alters the text.
In Vs 4 NIV Jesus became superior to angels in the quality of the name he inherited from God. (He's compared to the angels and stands apart in name only)
So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
VS. 9 NIV Jesus is set apart from his "companions"; the very angels hers being compared to.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy."
Good spoke through prophets and angels. He also created the universe THROUGH Jesus in verse 2. Just as prophets and angels aren't God, neither is Jesus. God performed His works through these individuals. Being used by God in no way makes a person equal to him.

Obviously, none. But scriptures can be twisted to appear to say anything you want them to say, when you have no accurate and authoritative source of biblical interpretation.

The better question is why Trinitarians worship the archangel as the second person of their man-god.

There are no scriptures which say that Jesus was Michael the archangel because He is NOT. Jesus never took the form of angels the Bible says.
Besides, Jesus is our Creator God - all things were made by Him (John 1:3) and angels are only CREATED like us humans are CREATED, where Jesus is the Christ, the CREATOR. He was the One who created Michael - He isn't Michael

None, of course. At no time does Jesus say he was the creature Michael the Archangel. Neither does any other part of Scripture.Source(s): Greek Orthodox Christian

The word archangel means chief of the angels.”The Bible mentions only one archangel, and his name is Michael. Daniel 12:1
Michael is the Leader of God’s army of faithful angels. Revelation 12:7 says: Michael and his angels battled with the dragon and its angels.
The book of Revelation says that the Leader of God’s army is Jesus, so Michael is another name for Jesus. Revelation 19:14-16.
