AMEN–The Last Word

“Amen” is a universal word, having been imported directly from the Hebrew into many other languages. AMEN (“let it be so”) expresses surety or absolute certainty. It’s a fitting last word in prayer, affirming our strong agreement with God regarding our petitions and their eventual outcomes. But AMEN is more than the last word in prayer. AMEN is also a Person. Jesus Christ is “the AMEN” (Revelation 3:14), always true and faithful. When circumstances, e.g. illness or death, seem to doom your fate, when your enemies and frenemies have done their worst, when men render their unjust verdict or write you off, and when all seem lost and hopeless, Jesus always has the last word. AMEN!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
