Where is God?

KJV Psalm 19:1-3
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
KJV Psalm 98:2
2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
KJV Psalm 139:1, 2
1 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
KJV Psalm 86:7
7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
KJV Psalm 22:1-3 (to 1st holy), 14-16, 19-22, 26-28
1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? 2 O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. 3 But thou art holy, 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. 16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. 21 Save me from the lion’s mouth: 22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever. 27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 28 For the kingdom is the LORD’s: and he is the governor among the nations.
KJV Luke 17:20, 21
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
KJV Luke 11:1, 2 (to 1st come.)
1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. 2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Thy kingdom come.
KJV John 1:18
18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
KJV John 12:44-46
44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. 45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. 46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
KJV Acts 17:22 (to 1st said,), 24-28 (to 1st being;)
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, 24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being;
KJV Romans 1:20 (to 1st Godhead;)
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead;

S&H 16:30, 31
Thy kingdom come.
Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.
S&H 479:18-32
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the
earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and
darkness was upon the face of the deep.”
(Genesis i. 1, 2.) In the vast forever, in the
Science and truth of being, the only facts are Spirit
and its innumerable creations. Darkness and chaos
are the imaginary opposites of light, understanding,
and eternal harmony, and they are the elements of
We admit that black is not a color, because it reflects
no light. So evil should be denied identity or power,
because it has none of the divine hues. Paul
says: “For the invisible things of Him, from
the creation of the world, are clearly seen, being under-
stood by the things that are made.” (Romans I. 20.)
S&H 480:2, 26-31
the spirit of God is, and there is no place where God is
not, evil becomes nothing, – the opposite of the some-
thing of Spirit. If there is no spiritual reflection, then
there remains only the darkness of vacuity and not a trace
of heavenly tints.
The Bible declares: “All things were made by Him
[the divine Word]; and without Him was not anything,
made that was made.” This is the eternal
verity of divine Science. If sin, sickness, and
death were understood as nothingness, they would dis-
S&H 481:1-2
How important, then, to choose good as the
S&H 465:17-1
Principle and its idea is one,
and this one is God, omnipotent, omniscient, and omni-
present Being, and His reflection is man and the universe.
S&H 361:16
As a drop of water is one with
the ocean, a ray of light one with the sun, even so God
and man, Father and son, are one in being. The Scrip-
ture reads: “For in Him we live, and move, and have
our being.
S&H 107:15
Feeling so perpetually the false consciousness that life
inheres in the body, yet remembering that in
reality God is our Life, we may well tremble
in the prospect of those days in which we must say, “I
have no pleasure in them.
S&H 108:1-2, 5, 19-3
Whence came to me this heavenly conviction, – a con-
viction antagonistic to the testimony of the physical senses?
It was the divine law of Life and Love, unfolding to me
the demonstrable fact that matter possesses neither sen-
sation nor life; that human experiences show the falsity
of all material things; and that immortal cravings, “the
price of learning love,” establish the truism that the
only sufferer is mortal mind, for the divine Mind cannot
When apparently near the confines of mortal existence,
standing already within the shadow of the death-valley,
I learned these truths in divine Science: that
all real being is in God, the divine Mind, and
that Life, Truth, and Love are all-powerful and ever-
present; that the opposite of Truth, – called error, sin,
sickness, disease, death, – is the false testimony of false
material sense, of mind in matter; that this false sense
evolves, in belief, a subjective state of mortal mind which
this same so-called mind names matter thereby shutting
out the true sense of Spirit.
My discovery, that erring, mortal, misnamed
mind produces all the organism and action of
the mortal body, set my thoughts to work in new channels,
and led up to my demonstration of the proposition that
Mind is All and matter is naught as the leading factor in
S&H 109:32-12
The three great verities of Spirit, omnipotence, omni-
presence, omniscience, – Spirit possessing all power,
filling all space, constituting all Science, – contradict
forever the belief that matter can be actual.
These eternal verities reveal primeval exist-
ence as the radiant reality of God’s creation,
in which all that He has made is pronounced by His wis-
dom good.
Thus it was that I beheld, as never before, the awful
unreality called evil. The equipollence of God brought
to light another glorious proposition, – man’s perfecti-
bility and the establishment of the kingdom of heaven on
S&H 208:5-11, 20
The Scriptures say, “In Him we live, and move, and
have our being.” What then is this seeming power, in-
dependent of God, which causes disease and
cures it? What is it but an error of belief, –
a law of mortal mind, wrong in every sense,
embracing sin, sickness, and death? It is the very anti-
pode of immortal Mind, of Truth, and of spiritual law.
Let us learn
of the real and eternal, and prepare for the reign of
Spirit, the kingdom of heaven, – the reign and rule of
universal harmony, which cannot be lost nor remain
forever unseen.
S&H 292:31-2
In his resurrection and ascension, Jesus showed
that a mortal man is not the real essence of manhood, and
that this unreal material mortality disappears in presence
of the reality.
S&H 339:20-25
As the mythology of pagan Rome has yielded
to a more spiritual idea of Deity, so will our material
theories yield to spiritual ideas, until the finite
gives place to the infinite, sickness to health,
sin to holiness, and God’s kingdom comes “in
earth, as it is in heaven.
S&H 337:20
The true idea of man, as the reflection of the
invisible God, is as incomprehensible to the limited senses
as is man’s infinite Principle. The visible uni-
verse and material man are the poor counter-
feits of the invisible universe and spiritual man. Eternal
things (verities) are God’s thoughts as they exist in the
spiritual realm of the real. Temporal things are the
thoughts of mortals and are the unreal, being the oppo-
site of the real or the spiritual and eternal.
S&H 336:25-26
God, the divine Principle of man, and man in
God’s likeness are inseparable, harmonious, and eternal.
