Well God is present and at the same time no....we are living in the tension between the now and the not yet. It's called the Gospel of the Kingdom.

Jesus did come and break the power of the other words we all know how the story is going to end. But the end hasn't come yet...see? So what we have is that tension. We see some of God's power but only in part, that's why some are healed and some aren't. That's why there is still a stain of evil happenings in this world. That's why death is still an inevibility.

Think about the Lord's prayer...."Your will be done ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN". God does have a presence here, just not in it's entirety like it will eventually be.

I know that's a really shortened version of this...I can expand more fully if need be. But I think the basics are there.
