He is God in the form of a human being, the God-Man. The difference between an ordinary man and God-Man is this: The ordinary man is not yet conscious of his inherent Godhood but fully conscious only of his manhood. The God-Man is fully conscious of His God-hood and Manhood simultaneously. He continually experiences infinite Knowledge, infinite Power and infinite Bliss. He simultaneously suffers with, and in, each one of His creation. As God-Man, God helps mankind age after age, individually and universally.
