Jesus last act as God was to be conceived then He became the God/man. After that he did everything as a man filled (controlled) by the Holy Spirit. This means that in John 4:4 when scripture reveals for us that “he must needs go through Samaria” He has just learned The Father’s will from the Holy Spirit.
At conception Jesus was the only begotten Son of God who became the Son of man. Now Jesus is “the firstborn among many brethren.” See Romans 8:29
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” Acts 10:38
“Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.” Isaiah 42:1
1 ¶ The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; Isaiah 61
“And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;” Isaiah 11:2
Before He became a man He created all of creation as the Son of God. Now He claims a new title; Son of man. Only two people in the New Testament call him the Son of man. First is Stephen when he is being stoned to death he sees him standing at the right hand of God. The only other is John in the Revelation.
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” I John 3:2
“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” Romans 8:17
When we see Jesus we will be like Him. We will be people controlled by the Holy Spirit. Our rewards are determined while we are here in this life and relate to a rank structure in heaven.
