Does God Dwell in One Place?

Various religions describe God as omnipresent, a term suggesting that God dwells in all places simultaneously. John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, wrote a sermon entitled “On the Omnipresence of God” in which he stated that “there is no point of space, whether within or without the bounds of creation, where God is not.”

What does the Bible teach? Is God omnipresent, existing in all places in heaven, on earth, and even in humankind at the same time?

As a doctor of the metaphysical sciences I agree that “there is no point of space, whether within or without the bounds of creation, where God is not.”

The Bible states that God as one Dwelling Place. HEAVEN. For example Jesus address his God, "Our Father who art in the heavens, let thy name be sanctified," (Matthew 6:9 Darby) Religions teach that God is omnipresent which means Everywhere, but the Bible does not. His throne is in Heaven not Everywhere. To claim God is in an eternal burning hell would be short sided and in error.

"However, I say to you: Do not swear at all, neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne;" (Matthew 5:34) The two quotes I just gave you came from Jesus Christ, the word of God. Surprised? Jesus never stated that God was Everywhere but gave a specific place. (Read Revelations Chapters 4 and 5 for more infprmation.) https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/wp20110801/where-does-god-dwell/

Dear "BroRando".
The Omnipotent Creator of the Universe is not only OMNIPRESENT, he is also OMNISCIENT, OMNIPERCIPIENT, OMNIFIC, RIGHTEOUS, INFALLIBLE, PERFECT, GENDERLESS, AND ETERNAL.

First, thanks BroRando for inviting me to address this question. We agree on so much. It's just sad so many others with different points of view have to get so offended! You'd think it was the presidential debate! Have you tried your questions on Quora? They don't tolerate some of the comments and belittling that goes on here. Plus, with the exception of a few experienced and informed respondents who know how to give a civil answer, you might find more informative answers and less responses like those who prefer to tell people their beliefs are silly or insinuate they are mentally impaired. It only shows where their heart is really at. So bless you for controlling that evil weapon we all possess - the tongue.
I think John Wesley's response is to the point. However, I do believe there are places God is not. All things were created through the spoken Word of God, which was manifest in the flesh as Jesus Christ, the only Son God begat. To assume God is in everything would be to presume

He is also in Hades, or among the dead. Our God is the God of the living. The answer can turn paradoxical easily, such as existing in the hearts and minds of those who do not believe He even exists. And since all things originate from thought, one must conclude that to those who do not believe in Him He does not exist. WE know He exists, but for some, He is non-existent. So, just because some do not believe does not mean He does not exist, but it is what the mind perceives to be real. Another

paradox might be if God is not there, does it exist at all? God may have created it, but it does not mean He is present "in" that thing. Lev 22:3 Say unto them, Whosoever he be of all your seed among your generations, that goeth unto the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I am the LORD.

Jer 23:39 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence:
Can we say God is present? It is most difficult for us humans to stay in tune with the Holy Spirit, making us holy. Yet when we are in the world functioning with our worldly minds, Is God present? HE may be with us, but are we with Him? especially if we sin? God may BE in all things, but not necessarily "present".

I enjoy your comments very much raybanned. The Bible clearly indicates that Jehovah God dwells, not everywhere, but only in heaven. The physical heavens cannot contain the Creator of the universe. (1 Kings 8:27) The Bible tells us that “God is a Spirit.” (John 4:24) He resides in the spiritual heavens, a realm independent of the physical universe.—1 Corinthians 15:44. Of course, Jehovah alone always existed and is Unbegotten. He is the God of gods.

Jehovah God does not have to be present everywhere, or omnipresent, in order to perceive what is happening at any point in the universe. God’s Word says: “There is not a creation that is not manifest to his sight.” (Hebrews 4:13) Yes, Jehovah’s powerful active force, or holy spirit, can extend anywhere, allowing him to be all-seeing and to accomplish his purpose from a fixed location, his “holy dwelling” in the heavens.—Deuteronomy 26:15.

I am a Church Deacon within the Assemblies of God. The God's Word very clearly teaches that He is omnipresent.

Here are the supportive verses below.

Psalm 139:7-12
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you

Acts 17:27-28
27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’[a] As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’[b]

God is the God of the living. He is not the God of the dead as the Bible tells us.

raybanned God is so much above us and so wise that we with out small minds can't comprehend all that God is! But if we love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength daily and pray for truth and understanding and the Holy Spirit He can show us man many things as through a dark looking glass now but later we will know all in the next life.
