3. Your wording rules out the possibility that the individual in quesiton is God.
If Jesus was both the son of God and God AND he's supposed to return someday, then there should be the possibility that a person claiming to be God might actually be whom they claim to be. Same goes for any of the other ancient gods that were capable of appearing as humans.

The 2nd option seems to follow if the person in question was divine, but your question is worded in a way that precludes it. It sets the premise that they 'think' that they are god, nothing more. Why not "how would you react if you met someone who claimed to be God?"
