They are equal in essence, equal in substance and equal in power. They are one God in three persons. They can't be separated.

An employee is not less a human being than his employer. They are both human beings. But the employee plays a different role from his employer. He submits because of the difference in roles, not because he is less powerful or lacks certain abilities of a human being or is somehow a lesser human being.
Christ was only made lower than the angels during his incarnation (Hebrews 2:9). Before his incarnation, Isaiah saw him sitted on His throne and the angels crying out "Holy, holy, holy." Nothing in the Universe was created without the Son, and it was the Son who holds the Universe together by His great power. After his ressurection He was given all power and authority over all creation. He judges the whole world, and the Father will defer all judgement to Christ at the end of the world.
I encourage you in your study to know God in truth.
Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
I recommend this study guide:
Tit 3:2 to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.
