De Moor IV:27: The Immensity and Omnipresence of God



God’s Immensity follows, which comprehends in itself His Omnipresence and Ubiquity. Obviously Omnipresence and Ubiquity assert a relation to created things, to all which God is said to be present. But Immensity is an Absolute Attribute, which includes Omnipresence; but it additionally posits that God is there, where created things do not even exist at this point, but are able to exist through the Power of God; in such a way that God is not able to be enclosed within the bounds of creatable things of this sort, since created or creatable things are always finite, but the Essence of God by Immensity is declared to be Infinite with respect to the Where. And so this Attribute is defined as a Perfection of God, whereby He is limited by no measure of things created or creatable, being Present to all creatures, and Exceeding their limits.
