another attribute of God alone, his ubiquity, or his. presence in every place at the same time. This attribute may be argued from his infinity (Psalms 139); his power, which is everywhere (Hebrews 1:3); his providence (Acts 17:27-28), which supplies all. As he is a spirit, he is so omnipresent as not to be mixed with the creature, or divided, part in one place and part in another; nor is he multiplied or extended, but is essentially present everywhere. God is everywhere, but he is not everything. All things have their being in him, but he is distinct from all things; he fills the universe, but is not mingled with it. He is the intelligence which guides, and the power which moves; but his personality is preserved, and he is independent of the works of his hands, however vast and noble. See Krauth, The Conservative Reformation, p. 797; Pearson, On the Creeds; Wardlaw, Syst. Theol. 1:554; Haag, Hist. des Dogmes Chretiens, 2:140 sq., 311; Malcom, Theol. Index, s. (See PANTHEISM).
