How is it that Gideon, in a few chapters prior, sits and talked with Yahweh (i.e. Malek Yahweh), and then claims that he saw God and lived?
How is it that Manoah and his wife do likewise?
Joh 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
This also proves that when God sent an angel (which looked like men) they were talking to God without the messenger being God.
This was also the case with Jesus who is a man (not an angel, nor God Himself) as the Bible says over and over, which you deny.
