The Father and The son are both worshiped by angels. Only God can be worshiped by angels.
Psalm 148:2 Praise him (God the Father), all you angels, give praise, all you hosts.
Hebrew 1:6 And again, when he leads the first-born into the world, he says:
“Let all the angels of God worship him (Jesus).”

The Lord says to you, my lord:
“Take your throne at my right hand, while I make your enemies your footstool.”
Acts 3:36 “Therefore let the whole house of Israel know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Messiah, this Jesus whom you crucified.”
Christ is God.
“For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.
His dominion is vast,
And forever peaceful,
From David’s throne, and over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustains
By judgment and justice,
Both now and forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this!
About the name “Lord”
I am the Lord, this is my name;
My glory I give to no other,
Nor my praise to idols.
God gave his Glory to Jesus; he was called Lord by his followers and himself.
As far superior to the angels
As the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
Isaiah 42:8 - God gives His glory to no other - John 17:5; Heb. 1:3 - yet Jesus has the same glory as the Father.
Isaiah 43:14 - the Lord God is redeemer - Titus 2:14 - Jesus is the redeemer.
Isaiah 44:6 - the Lord God is the first and the last - Rev. 1:17; 2:8; 22:13 - Jesus is the first and the last.
“Thus says the Lord, Israel’s King and redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
I am the first and I am the last;
There is no God but me.”
About Jesus being the first and the last.
“When I caught sight of him, I fell down at his feet as though dead. He touched me with his right hand and said, “Do not be afraid. I am the first and the last, the one who lives. Once I was dead, but now I am alive forever and ever. I hold the keys to death and the netherworld. Write down, therefore what you have seen, and what is happening, and what will happen afterwards.
Rev. 1:8 - God says He is the "Alpha and the Omega." In Rev. 22:13, Jesus also says He is the "Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the beginning and the end." The only possible conclusion one can reach is that Jesus is equal to the Lord God.
Rev. 1:17 - Jesus says again, "I am the First and the Last." This is in reference to the God prophesied by Isaiah in Isaiah 44:6, 41:4, 48:12.
Dan. 2:47 - the Lord is the God of gods and the Lord of Lords - Rev. 17:14 - Jesus the Lamb is the Lord of Lords.
In Acts 20:26-28, Paul speaks about God.
“And so I solemnly declare to you this day that I am not responsible for the blood of any of you, for I did not shrink from proclaiming to you the entire plan of God. Keep watch over yourselves and over the whole flock of which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, in which you tend the church of God that he acquired with his own blood.
Rom. 1:1 - Paul is an apostle of the Gospel of God - Rom. 15:19 - Paul preached the Gospel of Christ.
Jesus Christ is God over all, blessed forever.
They are Israelites; theirs the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; theirs the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, is the Messiah. God who is over all be blessed forever. Amen.
Col. 1:15 - Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the "firstborn" of all creation. The Greek word for "first-born" is "prototokos" which means eternal preexistence (it never means created).
For in him dwells the whole fullness of the deity bodily
Who indeed at a proper time revealed his word in the proclamation with which I was entrusted by the command of God our savior, to Titus, my true child in our common faith: grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our savior.
Who is the savior? Jesus or you may say, God.
God said in
”It is I, I the Lord;
there is no savior but me.”
Heb. 1:9 - God calls the Son "God." "Therefore, God, Thy God has anointed Thee."
God is clearly the speaker when he said “therefore, God”. In Heb. 1:5, “For to which of the angels did God ever say:” It was God who called Jesus “God”
Jude verse 4,
For there have been some intruders, who long ago were designated for this condemnation, godless persons, who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and who deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
“ONLY Master and Lord”

We also know that the Son of God has come and has given us discernment to know the one who is true. And we are in the one who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and etenal life.
Rev. 2:8 - the angel of the church in Smyrna wrote, "The words of the First and the Last, who died and came to life." See Isa. 44:6.
But Jesus answered them, “My father is at work until now, so I am at work.” For this reason the Jews tried all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the sabbath but he also called God his own father, making himself equal to God.
John 10:33 "We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."
(…This is what you shall tell the Israelites: “I AM sent me to you.”)
(This is my name forever;
This is my title for all generations.)
THAT TITLE IS EXCLUSIVE FOR GOD. I AM MEANS YAHWEH, GOD OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN.
Jesus said IAM.
In John 5:58 Jesus says, “Before Abraham was, I AM.”
John 13:13 - Jesus says, "You call me Teacher and Lord and you are right for so I AM."
John 10:38; 14:10 - "the Father is in me and I am in the Father" means the Father and Son are equal.
