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/

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.

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

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.

Very true @den14. We live, move and have our being in God (Acts 17:28). This means that God is "beyond" His creation or in other words, God's creation is contained within Him. The whole universe is like water being held together (contained) in His Glass (His nature) so it is very shortsighted to equate the glass with the water that is contained within it. The water is different from the glass and therefore trying to locate God in space and time is equivalent to trying to locate the glass...

..inside the water that is contained within it. Very futile because the glass is not in the water. It is beyond the water. It holds the water together. The glass holds the water and gives it form or shape. Just as we humans create (i.e build) houses as dwelling places for our bodies, God created man as a dwelling place for His eternal and timeless Spirit which is why we are referred to as the temple of God (1 COR 6:19) but just as men are not restricted to the houses that...

Prior to creation, the uncreated God was all that was so all that was created (symbolic of the waters in my analogy) were created within God (symbolic of the glass in my analogy) Meaning everything including the whole universe, time and space are concepts that were created "within" God which perfectly explains why God is everywhere. God is everywhere because everything that God created was created within God who was all that was. But since creation was contained "within" God, it meant that..

The interior walls of the whole glass surround "every single drop of water" that is contained within it but is "not" part of the water= God is everywhere in His created universe but cannot be equated with /is different from His creation
The exterior walls of the glass are "beyond" the reach of the water contained within it. God is beyond His creation.

BERRINTON - Once again, you've given a wonderful analogy that should address the most rational intellect attempting to comprehend the infinite with mere finite capability. Sadly, scripture makes clear that the 'natural man' (finite mind) CANNOT understand the things of God because they are SPIRITUALLY discerned. "The natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" - 1Cor. 2:14.

So much of the rhetoric displayed on this forum by those thinking themselves Christian reminds me of the parable of the Pharisee & the publican in Luke 18 - "The Pharisee stood & prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. ..." & another - "Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel" - Mt. 23:24.

things is absolutely VOID. Jesus said, "unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God ... do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ ... - Jn.3:3,7. Those who have never experienced this 'spiritual birth' think it is something associated merely with entrance into the after-life, but scriptural teaching related to being born again explains that it is the Holy Spirit's abiding presence within a true believer sealing them from corruption & guiding them into TRUTH.

If God is coming to the earth, then that proves God is not omnipresent. Coming is a contradiction of being everywhere. Also, if God was coming to the earth, then a person would have no need to be born again in order to the see the kingdom of God. Being 'born again' has nothing with being saved but rather seeing the Kingdom of God that is already in your midst.

Of course those words come from the Word of God.

Did you notice Heaven was created on the second day? Holding on to one translation, a person can become one sided and not gain the broader meaning of scriptures. We use a multitude of scriptures to help gain understanding. So in the context what does it mean?

God called the vault "sky." NIV
God called the space "sky. NLT
God called the expanse heaven. NASB
God called the canopy "sky." ISV

This is the earth's atmosphere, the sky that separates contains ou life sustaining environment.

To claim Elijah gained entry into the spiritual heavens before the death of Jesus Christ is actually what most religions teach. That's simply not accurate. It's an untruth claiming we don't need Jesus' sacrifice for entry into the spiritual heavens.

"And the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom." (Mark 15:38) This tearing of the curtain represents that entry was made possible only after Jesus death, not before as religion teaches.

@BroRando So you are dumb enough to serve a God that is not everywhere? I guess that explains your immature and unrealistic argument. Dumb arguments emanate from illusory and dead gods. You have made your imaginary god in your own image and likeness which explains why you assume that God is not everywhere. Your illusory god may not be everywhere but the Bible makes it clear to all those that have eyes to see that He is everywhere

"The eyes of the LORD are in "every" place, beholding the evil and the good Prov 15:3
God's eyes are in every place. On mars, on andromeda galaxy, on milky way and on all the galaxies in our universe both the ones that have been discovered and the ones that have not been discovered. Only a fool would serve a God that is not everywhere because a god that is not everywhere is limited and cannot be trusted to do justice because if God is not everywhere, it means that somethings...

can escape his notice. Besides if God is subject to space and time, then it means that he cannot witness everything happens in every heart and therefore cannot be trusted. God is everywhere. But spiritual death has blinded us to his presence everywhere. Sin has blinded us to the infinite and opened our eyes (understanding) to the finite All we see is our limited selves, our limited capabilities, our limited intellects and our limited egos. That's why we perceive a world of space and time

...without God. We are dead. We live in sin. We are without Jesus (life) Our ability to grasp the infinite has been killed by satan and sin. We must understand that the truth is greater than man, so it will not bow down to our social needs, personal needs, or insecurities and our feeble-minded reasoning does not and cannot negate that which actually exists. So living in denial does not and cannot change the fact that God is everywhere.

The best way for a human being to understand the truth is to deactivate/crucify the ego by accepting Christ in the heart. In this light, one can easily see how the people of Earth are currently bound like animals (of their own freewill), for animals do not even have the free will to deactivate their egos. Animals are brute beasts that do what they want and cannot help doing what they want. A lion cannot help but eat other animals. Its ingrained in its nature. So rather than act like the..

ignorant and stubborn bird that hastens to the snare and doesnt know that it is for its life, we must open our eyes and admit our willing blindness (John 9:41) The path to wisdom does entail arrogantly holding unto the stupidity of our egos.

All sinners are bound in a spiritual/mental prison that they cannot touch or feel which is why God tells us that the weapons of a Christians warfare are designed to cast down imaginations, (ideas in the mind) not bulwarks. Our fetters are mental fetters. Fetters of the mind that hold us captive to satan. To be in sin is to be"spell"bound by false concepts so one of the steps towards freedom is to stop believing the spells (lies) that have been used to hold us captive.

So the prison that all sinners find themselves is a symbolic prison that is very "easy" (for Christ) to open, it only takes a change of mind on our part for the 'opening process' to begin. Accept that Jesus is right and you are wrong and you will start to see things as they are. Reject that Jesus is right and you are wrong and you will remain a deceived and blind fool.

MJ has pretty much said it all when he wrote ""unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God and "Apart from the Holy
Spirit dwelling IN a person, such person's understanding of spiritual things is "absolutely" VOID". ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN REBORN OF CHRIST HAVE THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERIES OF GOD. The others are blind. They only see things in their dead form as parables and allegories. Let Him that hath eyes to see see!!!

There are many different translations of the Bible and each one is a little different and some even lose the real meaning of God's Word because men have changed it. I find that The King James Version is the most accurate in my estimation. Or maybe the Jewish Bible?

Thank you Den. I like your reasonableness. The truth can be found in any Bible translation. Some take more work than others. WE have put up a Museum of Bible Translations and have one of the few originals of the King James Bible from 1611. Did you know that the original King James Bible was once called the "HE" Bible?

Berrinton - I commend your commitment to declaring truth. Hopefully, those who read in sincere humility & open hearts will allow the Holy Spirit to transcend their natural, rational minds so bent on thinking themselves right, just long enough for a ray of true light to break through. As you've so eloquently presented Jesus Christ the Lord of ALL Creation, sadly, many have ignored HIM, choosing rather to continue professing their 'knowledge' of the 'word of God' - not understanding that

Jesus Christ IS The WORD! Just as you explained the omnipresence of God, so is the Word & the Spirit - all knowing, all present, all caring, all loving & all powerful - Almighty God. While claiming to know scripture, they have completely missed the whole point of scripture - Jesus Christ - the one & only God Incarnate. Jesus proclaimed, "You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; & these are they which testify of Me" - Jn. 5:39. Many times he warned about not truly

knowing what scripture teaches. " “Are you not therefore mistaken, because you do not know the Scriptures nor the power of God?" - Mk. 12:24. While truly born again believers shall continue to pray for the lost, they shall also stand as witnesses before God in judgement that they, having been granted the rightly divided truth of scripture & presented it with the proper identification of Christ. Yet it remains - none are so blind as they that WILL not see. Peace!

When it comes down to the truth and preachers in most churches the so called Christians in reality really not Christians at all! And when judgment comes the most heart breaking words from Jesus, "I never knew you." will be the death sentence! So now we need to study His Words carefully and meditate on them and seek the Holy Spirit to guide us on the right road before it is too late.

Does God have Brothers? God has No Equal. Jesus told his disciples, "The Father is Greater than I am" (John 14:28) Jesus said to her: “Stop clinging to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father.

Here's a scripture that drives the point home. "Observe intently the birds of heaven; they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are?" (Matthew 6:26) So the birds of heaven are in the sky, the earth's atmosphere the heaven that was created on the second day. Context of scripture and other translations help understanding with the aid of Holy Spirit.

MJ, As always, you are like water in a dry and thirsty land where no water is. Your statement "so is the Word &
the Spirit "all" knowing, "all" present, "all" caring, "all" loving & "all" powerful - Almighty God "perfectly" reflects the 'allness' or totality of God. All the qualities that you attributed to God show that God already is what He is or in easier to understand terms, He is perfect i.e full or spaceless. The All knowing nature of God shows that God cannot 'expand' in knowledge.

He already knows "everything" that there is to know. Unlike man whose knowledge evolves with experience, God already knows everything right now and forever. All present shows that God cannot be limited in space. Unlike man who needs to traverse from place to place in the universe, God is everywhere at the same time. All caring shows that God has all the caring that there is or would ever be to give or in other words, God is care personified Unlike man whose caring nature is limited, God's

caring nature is boundless. All loving shows that God is love personified. He doesn't need to become more loving or less loving. He is already as loving as He always was and will always continue to be. Unlike man who needs to evolve in love i.e become more loving, God is love personified. All powerful shows that God is as powerful as He has always been and will continue to remain as powerful forever. It also shows that God is power personified and the only true power of the universe.

..of men will come and go, world powers will rise and fall but God will always remain in charge. The main reason why the concept of God's timeless and spaceless nature is impossible for many to grasp is because they try to understand Him from a space, time point of view. Space implies a void or emptiness. Everything in this 3d world implies space For example Our knowledge evolves. We learn everyday. Which further means that there is an emptiness of void which we continually need

..to fill in order to become more knowledgeable. But God doesnt have that space/void. He already knows all (i.e He is the fullness) because he lives outside the limitation of our constricted universe of space and time. Time suggests space. Today is different from Tomorrow (different periods) and therefore, you lack the ability to know what happens at a time that is not current to you (i.e in the future). But God doesn't have those restrictions. He knows everything that will happen at all

..times "right now" and forever. Our ability to love also evolves (or devolves) everyday. Everyday we gain more experiences that either mold us to be more loving or hateful but God is as loving as He has always been or will always be. He doesn't need to learn to be more loving. He is the fulness of love or in simpler terms, there is "no" space available in God to love more. So God just is He doesnt need to evolve or learn and his thoughts don't change.

But men change. The collective thought field of men is in constant motion and produces changes in perception. When I was 10 I "perceived" myself as 10. When I was 60 I "perceived" myself as 60 (thoughts/perception change) . When I was 10 Roosevelt Was president but when I was 58, Clinton was president (realities change) But God is always who He is (i.e He is still and unchanging).

@brorando, God 'became' (took on the image of) man for our sakes and He didnt become a man (i.e become constricted in a body) to remain a man forever. He had to evolve back to His eternal and boundless state. So here is the answer to your question Now if God is Omnipresent, Everywhere, why did say teach, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God.’ God ascended back to His boundless nature.

He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things Eph 4:10
He who descended (i.e Jesus) ascended to fill "all" things. Also note that it claimed that He ascended "far above all heavens". Did you see that: far above "all" heavens. God is beyond all the heavens and the whole universe. He is boundless and eternal and he fills all.

Did God get lost when he was twelve? I didn't know that God has parents.

Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. 42And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. 43And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.

If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! ESV

Stop digressing from the topic of the debate silly. I NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT DAVID NOT KNOWING THAT HE WOULD DIE AND I DIDNT WRITE ANYTHING ABOUT A BURNING HELL. I m not gonna fall for your bait. You want me to digress from the main debate so that your stupidity would not be exposed.

The resurrection of Jesus means LIFE. It was on the third day not the first day.
“The Son of man must be lifted up, that everyone believing in him may have everlasting life. For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.”—John 3:14-16.

“Christ has been raised up from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep in death. For since death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also through a man. For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.”—1 Corinthians 15:20-22.

When did I say that the resurrection of Jesus meant death? When did I tell you that Jesus resurrection was on the 1st day. Did you even read my conversation with @delphradio?

Just be plain: I want to promote jw material, instead of going back and forth meaninglessly

Do you actually think that you are the only one that knows about the jw's teachings? Your best witness is your argument. Not the links you are giving.

Actually you changed the subject. God is not in hell as you claim.

That would be saying God is bad. Jesus said to him: “Why do you call me good? Nobody is good except one, God." (Mark 10:18)

Lol, I changed the subject? When did i change the subject? In your dreams? Another silly strategy aimed at diverting attention from your stupidity but it wont work. I didn't claim that God is in hell. The Bible tells us that "..if I make my
bed in "hell", behold, thou art there." Psalm 139:8. I only quoted the Bible silly.

God's location does not affect God. We are in the world but we are not "of" the world. God is in hell but it doesnt make him bad.

You claim God is in Hell. Well, the Bible says God is in HEAVEN. Is Heaven in Hell then? :-) I think not.

Isn't God supposed to be in heaven? And why is hell described as a "pit?" Unless it were a really big pit, it would be difficult to fit all the damned into such a "pit." The mystery is solved when one looks at the Hebrew word translated in the KJV Bible as "hell." The Hebrew word common to all these verses is sheol, which actually refers to the grave.

I think hell is the ground where the dead sleep waiting for the resurrection. But the wicked will be cast into the lake or fire or outer darkness.

The Kingdom of God is not far off from you. Both the righteous and unrighteous can be resurrected from the ground, hell, sheol, hades, otherwise known as mankind's common grave. (Acts 24:15)

However, those who have been counted 'wicked' will not be resurrected ever. The Greek word used for the lake of fire is Gehenna which is figurative speech for everlasting death.

Here in the translator's footnote, it states "hell. or, the grave."
Read Matthew Henry Commentary

Christ himself declared:

“Marvel not at this: for the hour comes, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment [damnation—KJV]” (Jn. 5:28-29).

"unto the resurrection of judgment" for hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (Rev 20:13 KJV)
