The phrase "Angel of the Lord" appears several times in Scripture.

Is the "Angel of the Lord" a generic term for an angel?

Is the "Angel of the Lord" the Messiah"?

Don't know much about the zohar. I stick to the Torah as well as Enoch, Jubilees and Yahsher.as at least two are quoted in the Torah (Genesis-Revelation).

The Light emanated from Ayn Sof.

The book of Hebrews seems to preclude such a possibility. In fact, the first two chapters contain a refutation to this idea:

Heb. 1:4-2:9 having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. ¶ For to which of the angels did God ever say,
“You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”?

¶ Or again,
“I will be to him a father,
and he shall be to me a son”? ¶ And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
“Let all God’s angels worship him.” ¶ Of the angels he says,
“He makes his angels winds,
and his ministers a flame of fire.” ¶ But of the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.” ¶ And,
“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands; they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment, like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be changed.
But you are the same,
and your years will have no end.” ¶ And to which of the angels has he ever said,
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
¶ Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation? ¶ Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard, while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. ¶ For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking. It has been testified somewhere,
“What is man, that you are mindful of him,

or the son of man, that you care for him? You made him for a little while lower than the angels;
you have crowned him with glory and honor, putting everything in subjection under his feet.”
¶ Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

This seems to combat the already present doctrines that taught Chriat being an angel (Col 2:18-22).

Thoughts?
