Imminent and Immanent
The term imminent does not mean immediate; neither does it imply a

development or event is within reach time-wise.
Factors other than time would be the controlling ones,

something imminent; you focus on the other factors that lead to it,
deliver it or trigger it.
The term immanent denotes that the development or event is within
reach tangibly or space-wise, that it is within and affects the regional domain of the
individual in a material way. Something good happening in some remote part of the universe
