does he have to necessarily reside anywhere? considered that he was, is, and always will be, i suppose he had some form of existence somewhere throughout eternity... that's a good question though. when it was mentioned in the bible that He created the heavens it was all the planets, stars and galaxies that were being referred to i think.
Genesis 1 Here God is speaking to us. He says: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The word heavens is plural which means He's talking about the universe and not the Heaven as we know it.
Since God is spirit, no "place" is required. Only physical beings, or those made of energy, require physical space. That god is not physical is implied by his Omnipresence. An physical object cannot be everywhere at the same time.
God is a spiritual being. He isnt physical except when He takes a physical form on Earth. He doesnt ever 'live' as we understand life. He just exists. He IS, always Was and always Will Be. He exists then, now and forever everywhere, including that place/plane/dimension/whatever that we humans label as heaven. You are trying to understand Him according to simple human constructs like time and space and physics, as if, like us, He is constrained by physical place and time in order to exist. But God INVENTED time and space as we understand it. He INVENTED all the rules if physics people try to constrain and define Him by. But GOD is SO totally outside and beyond any form of physical time and space explaination we weak humans could come up with!!!!
