Not to be confused with imminent which means ‘about to happen, looming’.

Immanence, which is closely related to omnipresence is the Biblical concept that God’s presence is everywhere (within time and space), yet He remains distinct from it (transcendence meaning He exists outside time and space).

The Bible teaches God fills the whole earth and sustains it by His powerful word and sovereign control (Ex 19:5; Num 14:21; Eph 1:11, 4:6; Heb 1:3).
