Why is Jesus called AMEN?

 

  • Revelation 3:14 " To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and TRUE Witness, the Originator of God’s creation."

According to Strong's Hebrew dictionary the word "Amen" (H3050) is derived from the Hebrew word āmān which reflects truthfulness, certainty, or the authenticity of a statement, blessing or doxology. It is sometimes theorized, that this Hebrew word has its origin in the Egyptian god Amon-Ra. However, no scholar has found a true connection between the two

 

It is undeniable that in spite of his power, Jesus wrapped himself in humility by offering his life as a sacrifice to atone for all our rebellion and allow us to contemplate the glory of the Father without fear. 

  • Philippians 2:6-7 "who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. "

 

The Bible teaches that just as YAHWEH exists by himself, Jesus was also empowered to exists by himself.

  • John 5:26 "For as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted the Son to have life in Himself."

 

Thus, in his human nature, YESHUA is superior to man and inferior to the Father. But in His divine nature, YESHUA has the same essence as His Father.

  • 1 Corinthians 11:3 "But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God."

  • John 14:28 "I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I."

  • John 10:30 "I and the Father are One"

 

In other words, YAHWEH the Father is the Supreme GOD of the universe above YESHUA his Son. And because the Father loves the Son who always does His will, He has subjected everything to the Son and made Him GOD divinely equal to Himself. Jesus reigns mightily and majestically alongside YAHWEH the Father.

  • John 8:29 "He who sent Me is with Me. He has not left Me alone, because I always do what pleases Him."

  • Hebrews 1:8-9 "But he said unto the Son: Thy throne, O GOD is everlasting; the scepter of thy kingdom is a scepter of righteousness, Thou lovest righteousness, and hate wickedness. Therefore O GOD , your God has anointed you with the oil of joy above your equals "

  • Hebrews. 1:2-4 "God in these latter days has spoken to us through the Son, whom he made heir of all things, by whom he also created the world, and who, being the reflection of his glory and the 'imprint of his person, and upholding all things with his powerful word, made the purification of sins and sat at the right hand of divine majesty in the very high places became so much superior to the angels that he inherited of a better name than theirs.

For these reasons, one cannot speak of God the Father without the Son and vice versa. We have proof of this in the book of Isaiah. If you pay special attention to the use of pronouns, you will notice that YAHWEH never says WE when He speaks of Him and His Son, but He always speaks in the singular to indicate that The Lord and the Lord of Hosts is singular. They are ONE.

  • Isaiah 44:6 "Thus says the LORD, the King and Redeemer of Israel, the LORD of Hosts: “I am the first and I am the last, and there is no God but Me."

Jesus often began his teachings with "Truly, truly, I say to you," in so speaking he was expressing himself as his own authority which rested on his absolute dependence upon it. The Mosaic law required two or more witnesses to establish the truth, Jesus was not alone, He had the Father in Him. He testified that His word, His judgment and His promises are true, valid and trustworthy because they came from two witnesses: Him and the Father. 

  • 2 Corinthians 5:19 "For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself"

  • John 8:17-18 Even in your law it has been written that the testimony of two men is true. “I am He who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me"

 

In his humanity, Jesus revealed that he is THE AMEN of YAHWEH: the epitome of absolute truth. When we fully believe YESHUA's words we are certifying that all of YAHWEH's declarations and promises are true. This means when Jesus said hell exists, but someone else preaches otherwise and you naively accept their teaching as true, you are unknowingly approving that God the Father is a liar.

  • Isaiah 45:23 "By Myself I have sworn; truth has gone out from My mouth, a word that will not be revoked: Every knee will bow before Me, every tongue will swear allegiance."

  • John 18:37 "Jesus answered, You say it, I am a king. I was born and I came into the world to bear witness to the truth."

 

The interest of praying in the name of YESHUA is not an incantation for material blessings, but it allows us to approach the throne of the Father in full identification with the Son, as if it is YESHUA Himself who made the request, and let His will and not ours be done, and so be it. And because YESHUA is THE AMEN, all prayers to YAHWEH must be said in the name of the Son.

  • 2 Corinthians 1: 20-21 For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God"

May the Holy Spirit guide you through the understanding of this message.
