Question: At this moment Jesus was a quickening Spirit (resurrected). Then, when Jesus tells this the Father himself is different from him.

Answer: After His resurrection, Jesus was still a human being. The difference was that He was now alive forevermore (see Revelation 1:18). He began to operate on earth as the life-giving Spirit on the day of Pentecost after His ascension (see Acts 2:1-4). If we were to accept your thesis, we would have to believe that Jesus was not the Father in flesh and was in reality a different divine being. But we cannot accept that because we believe God is one! (Deuteronomy 6:4).
