Jesus Is The Amen.

If you don't read it how can you have faith.Jesus Is The Amen.

In Revelations 3:14 Jesus says he is the Amen. What did he mean by this? In order to understand that we need to understand what the meaning of amen is. The meaning has changed in our times, it has come to mean I agree. Originally it meant “so be it”or “surely” the root word it was derived from means “be faithful” or “trust worthy” All things Jesus has proved to be.

Jesus flawless life in heaven and on earth fulfilled all the divine promises. ( 2 Corinthians 1:20 ) His sacrificial death not only confirmed but made possible the fulfillment of all the divine promises of God. For example the promise made to Abraham that through his offspring all nations of the earth would obtain a blessing. ( Genesis 22:18 ) Jesus fulfilled that promise. ( Galatians 3:16 )

By remaining faithful he also proved false claims made by Satan that God’s servants when deprived or suffering would deny him. ( Job 1:6-12 , Job 2:2-7 ) He also proved God’s rightfulness of universal sovereignty which was challenged in the garden of Eden. ( Genesis 3:1-5 ) He imitated his father so well that the bible says he is the image of God. ( 2Corinthians 4:4 ) This gave us a glimpse of God’s ability to heal, resurrect the dead, how to love, how to forgive etc. He did what he had seen his father doing. ( John 5:19 )

Choosing Jesus as our redeemer shows God’s wisdom and his love for us. He being the only-begotten son the first born of all creation he would know Jehovah God better then anyone. ( Proverbs 8:20 , Collisions 1:15 ) The prophecy in Micah 5:2 of Jesus birth as a human shows he has lived a very long time before his life as a man. This has given him a very long time to know God’s qualities and what his will is.

He left us a model on how to be faithful and loyal to the one true God, and how to endure what Satan and this world throws at us. When Jesus was not sure he prayed to God for the strength and knowledge he needed. ( Matthew 26:39 ) Jesus can rightfully claim he is the Amen.
