God is still incarnate

"when the self-renunciation is removed by exaltation, the state of incarnation remains."

"Illa intelligitur hic exinanitio, quae per exaltationem est sublata; sed incarnationis status permanet."

. . . the emptying . . . is, by the exaltation [(ascension)], lifted, but the state of incarnation endures.
