"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."
1 John 5:4 (KJV)

"did Jesus become God at ascension, baptism, incarnation or before the foundations of the world?"
The answer is, NONE of your options are correct.
Jesus never "became" God.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God."Joh 1:1-2
"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."Joh 1:14
The Word was with God and The Word was God. And The Word was made flesh (Jesus)"
Jesus was God from eternity past, existing in Loving relationship with The Father and The Spirit as The Son, in One Divine Being that Christians refer to as The Trinity.
3/12/2021, 9:28pm by "SkipVought": LC, "Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come."Mat 12:31-32 Jesus said this to religious leaders who SAW and HEARD Him. They SAW the Works of The Holy Spirit at Jesus' hands, yet rejected Him thus blaspheming The Holy Spirit. Unforgivable!

3/12/2021, 7:00am by "lissous Christos": All were in denial of what? I have been pondering exactly what you mentioned. What was I before my rebirth? I was already dead spiritually but I died with Christ. So consider the question did Jesus become God at ascension, baptism, incarnation or before the foundations of the world? And I? When was my spiritual death? Was it in the garden with my mother Eve? Was it when my father Adam ate it? Or when jesus was on the cross at his desension into Hell? Or was it at my conversion? Or is it daily? As you can see from my name my theology is already decided on who I am in Christ. I do all thongs through Christ that strengthens me. It is not I who live but Christ in me.
3/12/2021, 1:01am by "Carleton": Hello, Consider the moment before you or anyone had their sins forgiven by faith and repentance in Jesus Christ. Ahead of that moment, all were in denial. :)
3/11/2021, 11:17pm by "lissous Christos": The unforgiveable sin is to deny that Jesus came in human body and that his spirit is still in this world. He wasn't worried about his body and those that were to kill it as he was a willing sacrifice. But beyond that, after he rose, after he sent his spirit. After he came back. To deny he is the Christ of the world that he is the son of the Father, that he and the Father are one, and then to deny his followers who have been born of God. Especially to deny Christ living inside the flesh of us. All of this is the unforgiveable sin.
12/12/2020, 6:08am by "Eva Rabon": I believe the unforgivable sin is not accepting jesus christ as the son of god and your lord and savilor.
9/16/2020, 10:50am by "Preacher man": Jesus explains this passage in John chapter 3 to Nicodemus. water is natural birth, showing Jesus was all man. Blood showing his bloodline, God, proving his deity. Jesus says, "I must be about my fathers business." talking about God.

8/30/2020, 9:29pm by "BEING RECONCILED TO GOD": Richard, as long as we are on the side of life; there is still time to be reconciled, by the enduring Love of God. 2 Corinthians 5: 16-21 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is: in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Stop here and read Exodus 33:11-23. And Luke 15:11-32. Hebrews 6:18 and 12:1-2 Lastly, 1 John 1:9 Satan has demons that keep an eye on us: what we do, say, read. They're invisible "spies". Ephesians 6. Satan uses the info collected, to ACCUSE you at the throne of God. You feel those accusations. However the Holy Spirit is still with you, convicting you about your sins. He desires to reconcile these things and stop the torment in your mind. 1 John 2:1 names Jesus as your ADVOCATE: your attorney. And He's sitting right beside His Father in heaven, NOW. Your name is still written in the Book of Life. It's time now for you to pray. Confess your heart. Receive the cleansing power that is in the shed blood of Jesus. 1 John 1:2. Jesus already paid for it. It will be well with your soul, afterwards. We all need to run to, 1 John 1:2 as soon as sin happens. We are soul and spirit encased in flesh. All that Bible reading makes the spirit man get bigger than the sinful flesh and the gullible soul. Hebrews 12:2, said, to RUN THE RACE. Win! I love you brother and never feel that you are alone in this. You're blessed. Get to know God the Holy Spirit, who is The Spirit of Christ. Book of John, ch 16 M.
