The word “amen” is the most popular and powerful word in the world!
It is the same in both the Hebrew Old Testament and Greek New Testament as it is in English. According to the Strong's Enhanced Lexicon, It was transliterated directly from the Hebrew into the Greek of the New Testament, then into Latin and into English and many other languages, so that it is practically a universal word. It has been called the best known word in human speech.
It is fascinating that the word is almost identical to the Hebrew word for “believe” (amam). It came to mean “sure” or “truly”, an expression of absolute trust and confidence.
The first time amam is used in the Bible is in Genesis 15:6, where it says of Abraham, "And he believed (amam) in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness." Thus, amam is the word that first triggered grace and righteousness conveyed to humanity by God through our faith, the greatest act of mercy and grace in all history. It is also the action word that birthed all the descendants of Abraham, all over the world, for some 4,000 years.
The word amen is used 78 times in the Bible, in both Hebrew and Greek.
Too often in our world today the word amen is used flippantly, without sincerity. However, when amen is spoken sincerely, with conviction, and in faith, concerning one of God's truths and promises, this word of faith actually actuates that truth or promise into one's life. It brings it into reality, from the spirit world to the physical world.
"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).Yes! Amen!
