For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.
2nd Corinthians 1:20 (NLT)
“Amen” we say it at the end of our prayers, we say it to respond to sermons. Personally I say “Amen” when someone says something really awesome! Amen means something and it is very profound to all of us that is why we use it at the end of our prayers.
In the scripture verse today, Paul shares this extremely encouraging, uplifting, very hopeful message in the second letter to the Church in Corinth in regards to the promises of God and the meaning of “Amen”.
What is the meaning of Amen?
In the context of this Bible verse, Amen means “Yes”. The origin of the word Amen means ” verily true”. It often said to affirm the truth and also used to express agreement to the truth. The online google dictionary translates “Amen” as “so be it”.
In other words, Amen means, let the truth be fulfilled.
Apostle Paul says that all the promises of God are fulfilled in Jesus Christ with a resounding “Yes”! This is true, and the Amen we say affirms this truth and ascends to to God for God’s glory. Yes this is true and we (believers) agree to this by responding Amen! Our affirmation of this truth glorifies God who fulfills this truth.
Why do you say “Amen”
Also, saying “Amen” is the expression of your faith in the truth. Your affirmation of the truth contains power that causes the truth to be manifested to you. Beloved the truth is always true and remains the truth but the truth is not made known to all. When you respond with an “Amen” you call forth the truth to be your truth too.
So Beloved in Christ, all God’s promises for all humanity are fulfilled in Jesus Christ, this is true , so we all join to say Amen!
We call forth “Amen” so that we all will experience God’s promises in Christ Jesus in our lives too.
Amen opens our consciousness to experiencing the truth, you become aware and you are able to testify to God’s truth.
Saying Amen in our Daily Speech
As I was meditating on this scripture, I heard in my spirit, this message
“Always speak in a way that you will always be able to say “Amen” at the end of your speech”
I was deeply moved by this because, I felt convicted about all the things I say day in and day out that I could not put an ‘Amen” at the end. Sometimes we speak things that are destructive and hurtful, we say things that do not glorify God, things that contradictory to God’s promises.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. -Proverbs 18:21
In as much as we are able to respond “Amen” to God’s promises and gracious words that are spoken, we also must speak words that others can respond “Amen” to. I recommend the “Amen Test” in your speech always, see if you are speaking life-giving truth or you are speaking in a way which is not glorifying God.
May God help us and continue guard and guide us by His Spirit. Beloved in Christ always remember that Jesus Christ dearly loves you for He gave His life for you.
Stay blessed ❤
