Jesus has the final word
“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation.”
Jesus, as in all the letters, introduces Himself as the Lord of life and the Lord of all! He says, “I am the Amen.” Now Amen means of a certainty, of a truth; it is an affirmation.
When you say “Amen” or when we sing Amen, Amen, Amen, it is truth, truth, truth. That’s the truth! It’s yes with an exclamation point. Amen! So Jesus is the Amen!
Amen is not just a word we say to get ready to go eat. Amen, let’s eat. No, amen means I affirm, I agree! And we need Amen when God’s truth is proclaimed.
So when Jesus says, “I am the Amen,” that means that I fulfill the promises of God! Every promise of God… every truth of God, Jesus is the Amen! If Jesus makes you a promise, He says “Amen” to that promise. That means He will keep every promise!
Jesus is the last word. He fulfills forever the witness of God… the word of God! That’s Jesus! He’s the Amen, the Faithful and True, the final Witness! That means that nothing in your life is the final word but Jesus.
Cancer doesn’t have the final say; Jesus has the final say! Death doesn’t have the final word; Jesus has the final word! Brokenness doesn’t have the final word; Jesus has the final word! And if He is your Lord, the Lord of your life, He’s saying, “I am the Amen!”
JESUS IS THE SOURCE AND SUSTAINER OF EVERYTHING.
