Phil 2:6-8

6 Who, being in very nature[a]nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b]nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!

In order to properly be able to redress the disobedience of Adam, it was necessary for Christ to enter our dimensions of time and space and to function in obedience as a man. To this end, scripture teaches he emptied himself of his divine nature; he was the same person, but with a temporarily (that is, within the dimensions of our temporal existence) diminished nature. He chose not to exercise his God-nature except via the Holy Spirit as a man.

So while on earth, Jesus functionfunctioned in a limited capacity, as a man invested with the Holy Spirit. Thus, he said, "the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing":
