There has been a lot of talk that information, in the form of DNA, lies at the foundation of all life. Also, as Christians, we believe that information – God’s words and thoughts – is at the core of all existence:

·       The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by his knowledge the deeps broke open, and the clouds drop down the dew. (Proverbs 3:19-20; ESV)

It also seems that information, God’s word, will be form the foundation of our heavenly existence. We get many biblical hints of this. There will come a time when:

·       All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children. (Isaiah 54:13)

·       They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11:9; Hab. 2:14))

It is because of the knowledge of the Lord that heaven will be peaceable. Therefore, Scripture informs us that God has elevated His Word to the level of His own Personhood:

·       I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul you increased. All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O LORD, for they have heard the words of your mouth. (Psalm 138:2-4)

God’s Word is not only exalted above everything else in this life. It is also the reason that kings will submit to our Lord. What they had rejected, they will then see:

·       So shall he [Messiah] sprinkle [with His blood] many nations; kings shall shut their mouths because of him; for that which has not been told them they see, and that which they have not heard they understand. (Isaiah 52:15)

Here is what I am getting at – the Word of God should be central to our lives now, because it will remain central forever. Jesus, equating Himself with God, had stated:

·       Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. (Matthew 24:35)

If His words are eternal, we need to treat them as such.
