Default Jesus on earth

Dear Ron,

when Jesus (the eternal son who existed before anything) became man, did he still with god the father and the holy spirit in heaven at the same time?

Thank.

Jesus is one Person with two Natures. In his Divine Nature, Jesus is eternally united with the Father and the Spirit as one Being. This did not change at the Incarnation. We say that God is in Heaven. But in truth God is everywhere, and He is also beyond Time and Place. So Jesus can be with the Father and Spirit in Heaven, and also be on earth.

In his human nature, united to his Divine Nature, Jesus can also be in more than one place at the same time. He is physically and locally present in each host in every tabernacle. And he is also physically and locally present in Heaven, in both natures as one Person.
