No.  In regard to his return to the earth, Jesus said, in Matthew 24:36, “Concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son (Jesus), but the Father only. So Jesus cannot be God.

It has sometimes been argued that Jesus’ statement refers only to the time of his mortality.  However, after Jesus’ had been made immortal and exalted to his Father’s side in heaven, Paul says, in 1 Corinthians 8:6, “For us there is one God, the Father”, and in 1 Timothy 2:5, “There is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”  So, Jesus is not God.

There is one God, the Father.  Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  And the Holy Spirit is the power of God.
