So the evidence indicates that the Son of God was known as Michael before he came to earth and is known also by that name since his return to heaven where he resides
as the glorified spirit Son of God.
After the ascension of Jesus Christ He is still in heaven as "the man Christ Jesus"
"For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." ( 1 Timothy 2:5)
Today there IS
the man Christ Jesus as Mediator between God and men in heaven.
After the ascension of Jesus Christ He foretold that He would come again as "the Son of Man"
" ... And the high priest said to Him, I charge You to swear by the living God to tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God.
And Jesus said to him, You have said rightly. Nevertheless I say to you, From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power and coming on the clouds of heaven." (Matt. 26:63b,64)
In resurrection Christ was "the Son of Man"
- He is still a man.
"And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me; and when I turned, I saw ... One like the Son of Man ..." (Rev. 1:12,13)
At the last rapture He is seated upon the cloud as "the Son of Man"
reaping the ripened believers from the earth.
"And I saw, and behold, there was a white cloud, and on the cloud One like the Son of Man sitting, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand." (Rev. 14:14)
In His ascension to heaven He was seen arriving before the Ancient of Days - the Father, as "the Son of Man"
"I watched in the night visions, And there with the clouds of heaven One like the Son of Man was coming, And He came to the Ancient of Days, And they brought Him near before Him." (Daniel 7:13)
After His ascension to heaven Stephen, the first Christian martyr saw Jesus as "the Son of Man"
"And he [Stephen] said, Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." ( Acts 7:56)
In His return to the earth to be the fulfillment of Jacob's dream in Genesis 28
He prophesies that He would be seen as "the Son of Man"
"And He said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, You shall see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man." (John 1:51)
As God-man, ever since the resurrection, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and FOREVER a glorified MAN -
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes, even forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
As a Godman, Jesus Christ has an eternal priesthood, not ending with the church age, not ending at the end of the millennium, and not ending ever.
"But He, because He abides forever, has His priesthood unalterable. Hence also He is able to save to the uttermost those who come forward to God through Him, since He lives always to intercede for them." (Hebrews 7:24,25)
"The Lord has sworn and will not regret it, You are a Priest forever." (Hebrews 7:21b)
In the final judgment of the world He is still a man.
"Because He [God] has set a day in which He is to judge the world in righteousness by the man whom He has designated, having furnished proof to all by raising Him from the dead." (Acts 17:31)
In resurrection, in ascension, in His second coming, in His reigning as a Priest and King forever, in the last judgment, and in eternity He will never put off again His humanity. He is the glorified Godman forever.
