~Psalm 119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
The word settled here gives us an idea of permanence, not something here today and gone tomorrow. “The Treasury of David” has a beautiful definition:
Man’s teachings change so often that there is never time for them to be settled; but the Lord’s word is from of old the same, and will remain unchanged eternally. Some men are never happier than when they are unsettling everything and everybody; but God’s mind is not with them. The power and glory of heaven have confirmed each sentence which the mouth of the Lord has spoken, and so confirmed it that to all eternity it must stand the same, – settled in heaven, where nothing can reach it.
It does not matter what today’s “religions” teach. What matters is what God’s Word teaches. When one stands before God at the time of judgment, he will have to give an account of how he lived his life and why he chose the path that he chose.
~1 Peter 4:4-6 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
I hear so often, “I’m going to hell – I’ll be meeting all my friends there”! How sad that eternity is taken so lightly! IF these misled souls are wrong, what a horrible price to pay to spend eternity in flames for just a lifetime of frivolity! Why take a chance?
~Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
~Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Man’s way seems right but leads to death. God’s Word is settled and leads to life eternal!
