Was Jesus a created angel?

Scripture: John 1:1-3
Was Jesus a created angel? Jesus tells us in Revelation that He is the Alpha and the Omega who always has been. The other place in Scripture that speaks of this is found in John 1.

Caller:  I was studying with a young lady recently and one of the questions we were throwing back and forth at each other, she happened to mention that she thought Jesus was one of the angels and that He was created.  I said, I don’t think Jesus was created.  I was hoping to get some information on that.

Pastor Doug:  Jesus said in John 6, Before Abraham was, I am.  He used the same phrase that you hear at the burning bush, The Self-existent One.  And then if you read in John 1:1-3,14 it tells us that all things that were made were made by Him .  Now if all things that were made were made by Him, then how could He be made? 

How could the Creator be a creation?  So its sometimes a mystery for people to understand that Jesus has always been in existence.  He says in Revelation, I’m the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.  From everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God.  Christ is the great Messenger but he is not an angel in the sense of a cherub.  He is the great Messenger but he is not created.  He is the Creator.  There are a few scriptures that hopefully with help a little.

Caller:  Would you have any literature?

Pastor Doug:  I do.  I have a book on the Trinity.  Some people who don’t believe in the Trinity also don’t believe that Jesus is the Creator and I combat that using the Bible in this book.  It’s a new book I just got out called The Trinity by Doug Batchelor.  We’ll send it to you free and anyone else who wants a copy.  The number is 800-835-6747.
