Scripture teaches that Jesus has not merged with God; the two persons are still distinct. In fact, Jesus' role as the Son of God was declared "with power by the resurrection from the dead" (Ro 1:4). The New Testament authors are all in agreement on this, and often mention them as two separate individuals:
"Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear." (Ac 2:33)
"God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus." (Ro 2:16)
"The life that He [Jesus] lives, He lives to God." (Ro 6:10)
"When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One [God the Father] who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all." (1 Co 15:28)
"Therefore He [Jesus] is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." (Heb 7:25)
"Our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ." (1 Jn 1:3)
"And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous" (1 Jn 2:1)
"The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son." (1 Jn 5:10)
"He who overcomes, I [Jesus] will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name." (Re 3:12)
Scripture explicitly states that Jesus has not merged with God, and is indeed still the Son of God. The apostles Peter, Paul, and John testify to this, along with Jesus Himself.
