Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. (Psalm 119:89, NKJV)
Truth is determined in heaven, not upon earth. That is, God is the source of truth, not man. For example, many “laws of nature” (like gravity) have been discovered by mankind, but they were not established by human beings. The truth of these laws has existed since “God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Likewise, spiritual and moral truth is not determined through the experiences and wisdom of humanity; it is established and settled in heaven. Heaven’s truth is the word of God. Jesus Christ emphatically agreed when He said, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth” (John 17:17). Jesus possesses the full authority of truth in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18). Humans have no standing to argue against the truth of God (authority of heaven). Human beings do not vote to decide what the truth will be. We have only to either believe and obey God’s truth to receive His blessings, or to refuse and disobey His word unto our eternal demise (Matthew 7:21-23; Luke 6:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9). Truth will not change to our whims; We must be converted and follow it (John 8:31-32).
