Faithfulness in Heaven

You shall establish your faithfulness in the very heavens.”
Psalm 89:2b

Why would God even have to establish His faithfulness in heaven?  Wouldn’t it always have been established in heaven?
Not if evil was allowed in heaven as well as good, which was the case before Jesus, the Son of God, was glorified to sit at the Father’s right hand and Satan and his angels were cast out of heaven.  From that day, God’s faithfulness was forever established in heaven, and all unfaithfulness was forever forbidden to enter.
Those among God’s children who are unfaithful to Christ will never behold the face of their heavenly Father because faithfulness is now the standard for all who stand in His presence.  Only those who were “called, and chosen, and faithful” will stand in God’s presence and see His face.
