‘God’ is Omnipresent.

‘God’ is present in all places; however, our conception of Him must not be of Him filling space, as water fills a jug,
for He has no physical or material dimensions.

So, by omnipresence we mean that God, in the totality of his essence, without diffusion or expansion, multiplication or division, penetrates and fills the universe and beyond in all its parts.

God’s essential presence is without any division of Himself

God’s omnipresence is not the presence of a part but of the whole of God in every place. This follows from the conception of God as incorporeal (God is a pure and most simple spirit, without material parts).

Hence it is wriiten : “God is Spirit”.

God’s presence is not a multiplication of Himself

There is no multiplication or diffusion of God’s substance to correspond with the parts of his dominions. The one essence of God is present at the same moment in all.

His essential presence everywhere is not by multiplication, for the simple reason that the infinite God cannot multiply Himself, or make Himself more or greater than what He is.

‘God’ is then totally everywhere.

Thanks.

    Q.1. If God loves you with all his heart, why does he send moral and good people to hell, just because they never accepted him?

    A.1. ‘God’ is only an ultimate reality, which can be used only for the foundation of your everlasting faith.
    Therefore, don’t think that God is same like a person with human feelings & emotions!
    You can believe in God and this belief will automatically turn into Love!

    But, Sorry, ‘God’ can’t love you back !

  3. Timothy Luke says:

    You have set up two premises, both of which are false, and then  pose a question from those premises…. interesting…

     

    Have you ever accepted a gift, before you opened it? Then you have accepted something without know its 'correct definitions'.

    If I sent you a bag full of snakes, would you have to pet each one before you sent it back in order to deny the gift I have given you?

    "God" is not simply a word, it is a person. You can know the character traits of God by doing a study on the names of God. Have you done this? If so, please share! If not, why don't you do the first works and then get back to us.  I do not see any sense in chasing your logic if you are not doing any leg work on your end. smiley

    Interesting thoughts on God's omnipresence. There is a theology that says God cannot look upon sin, yet scripture shows him confronting the devil himself.

  4. Spiritual Philosopher says:

    How can you accept ‘God’ without knowing the correct definition of the word ‘God’?”

    Likewise, how can you deny ‘God’ without knowing the correct definition of the word ‘God’?

    Now, What is the correct definition of the word ‘God’?

      Dear Spiritual Philo

      After reading all of your posts, as far as I can see, your entire Philosophy is “WRONG”. You have a lot of thoughts, but they all come from the premise that “God DOES NOT EXIST” or if He does “HE IS UNJUST”. I think the word which best describes your Philosophy would be cynical.

      These statements of yours, denote your lack of belief (faith).
      “If God loves you”
      “Sorry, ‘God’ can’t love you back!”
      “why does he send moral and good people to hell, just because they never accepted him?”

      According to your Philosophy, man is inherently good and moral, while God on the other hand, is unjust.

      The following are the reasons why people go to hell.
      Rom 5:12
      Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
      Psa 14:3
      They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
      Rom 3:10
      As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

      Psa 53:3
      Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
      Rom 3:12
      They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

      Jas 1:14
      But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

      Therefore the answer of God for mankind is.
      Joh 3:16
      For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELEIVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
      Eph 2:8
      For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD:
      Eph 1:6
      To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein HE HAS MADE US ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED.
      1Jn 4:19
      We love him, because HE FIRST LOVED US.

      The phrasing of your statements, say that you do not know GOD, His ways, or His word.
      Once you understand, “God Is The Creator” of all things, you also have to acknowledge, God did not bring Sin into His Perfect Creation called Earth. It was man and his disobedience to Gods’ law.
      So instead of looking at the situation saying “God is sending people to hell just because they never accepted Him”, look at the situation for what it really is, Adam is the one responsible for sin in the world.
      While God on the other hand, has mitigated the damage done by Adam, by giving us the opportunity to escape what is our inevitable end, which is hell and death, God has freely offered us forgiveness for our sins, the ultimate choice is mans (ours). God has extended His love to mankind in the gift of salvation, man bears the responsibility whether to accept Gods forgiveness, or to suffer the consequences of his own actions.

        Dear JIM,

        Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.

        For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law.

        Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all!

        Then what is the secret of this miraculous ‘faith’?

        SP.

        • Lover of Jesus says:

          The secret to this miraculous faith is Jesus Christ. It is also in reading the word of God. Rom 10:16: Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. (NIV)
          Again, Jesus Christ is central here. There is one God, the Father, The son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ died on the cross for us and rose from the dead after three days (read Matt 27; 28, Luke 23; 24, and John 19; 20)

          In regards to wanting to know what I mean about the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, I am going to list some passages that you might like to read:
          Gen 1:27; 3:22, Isaiah 6:3; 6:8; 11:2-3; 42:1; 48:1.6
          There are some passages in the New Testament whic hportray God in three persons, if you would like to have a look through and see for yourself. Please let me know if you want me to find them for you and list them.

        That was a great comment you made there! Very good evangelistic strategy there I think. Keep it up.
