What is the difference of the divine nature in man and the divine nature of Jesus?

We are told 2 Peter 1:4: “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

We have a new nature along with the old nature that is still in us. The new is to rule over the old in us.

In Jesus, the Son who was incarnated had only a divine nature, the same nature the Father and the comforter have. Only three possess it as theirs, it is intrinsic to them alone, whereas, for us, it is given but it is not us, it is God's nature in us. We are adopted into the family of God but it does not make us equal with, or become God[s]. Nor does this expand the eternal Trinity.

John 1:12-13 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” Born of God, meaning a new birth by the Holy Spirit.

Paul writes Eph 3:14-16 “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man” notice it says by His Spirit, not ours.

Rom 8:11But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Its all dependent on his spirit indwelling us, the power the knowledge, the contemplation of our condition before a Holy God.

1 Cor 2:10 “But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”

I Jn 4:13-15 “By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.”

One cannot have the confession, the declaration that all Christian share in, without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the comforter That Jesus is the son of God, equal with the Father.

So this divine nature that is to rule over our fallen nature will have us speak accurately about the Son
