Christos means anointed one.
If Christ refers to God, it does not make sense to anoint God.
Why would be a creator of all things be anointed? He is the one who anoints not, He will be the one to be anointed. Having said this, Christ is referring to the human flesh to which God manifested- the human flesh born through a woman, this was the anointed one, a chosen flesh.
For this reason, Christ is a man since this refers to the flesh where God manifested. This God who manifested in the Flesh is the Son since He was also called God in Heb 1:8 who also has a God in Heb 1:9.
Now, where is the Father in all of these?
Answer: Father is the One Spirit or, Life in the Son whether before becoming Christ, during and after becoming Christ.
The Father after He created the Son or the Image of the invisible God always dwelt in the Son even before the beginning of time. Without the Father in the Son, the Son whether before becoming Christ, during and after becoming Christ cannot do anything. Father is the Life in the Son in exact essence. But, though the Father is in the Son hence one, Father is not the Son nor the Son is the Father.
If put in a formula;
The pre- Christ Existence of the Son is below;
Spirt x Soul = Son
– First to be brought into existence, the spiritual form of the Image of God liken to the Angels. He was the one impressed as God in the Old.
The Christ or during the realization of being Christ;
Spirit x Soul x Human Flesh = Son as Christ
-The human form of the Image of God
Post Christ, the fulfillment of being Christ;
Spirit x Soul x Glorified Flesh = Son
-Preeminence in all, first in creation now in the dead. The complete form of the Image of God.
Whereby, all throughout, the Spirit in the Son is part of the One Spirit Father that though present in the Son is also present outside the Son. This one Spirit has a will of its own, invisible and can only be known and seen through His visible image called the begotten Son who inherited the name of His Father. Son too though being made alive by the Father within has a life of its own in a sense that He has a will of its own, the man was created in this Image – One being in duality to which, the spirit within is impersonal towards the one being made alive.
