Is God Bound by God?

Paul tells me Christ
was emptied of God
before incarnation and Immanuel.

So Jesus was fully human,
fully void of God
(yet still fully God).

God bound Christ
and sent him to earth:
a God in chains.

God binds God?
An Almighty who isn't
all that mighty?

For freewill's sake,
for love's sake
and for God's (some say),

God holds back God.
They call this Love.
They call it Just

that God stands still,
abounding in grave grace,
and bound by holy fetters.

Yet, some say, God will remove the chains.
They say God only wears them for a time.

Was God ever really hindered?
