7 Amen's

~ Different Nuances of Amen ~

Amen is one word that is common to all who have Christian faith. It is not just used at the end of a statement—oftentimes it is embedded in the thought. Do you understand the meanings of the word “amen” and the differences in its meaning? In each of the following situations we are dealing with the same Greek word. 

Affirmation (so it is) ~ “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life” (John 6:47).

Supplication (so let it be) ~ “And she said, ‘Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table” (Matthew 15:27). 

Expectation (let it be) ~ “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20).

Confidence (it shall be) ~ “I tell you the truth, whoever hears My Word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life” (John 5:24).

Necessity (it must be) ~ “Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God’” (John 3:3).

Certainty (it is) ~ “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us” (2 Corinthians 1:20). 

Acquiescence (let it be) ~ At that time Jesus answered and said, ‘I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight’” (Matthew 11:25-26).
