The Amen

 

Extracts and comments from Revelation Chps. 1:7(e) & 3:14(b)

 

1:7 

(a)Behold!  He cometh (b)with the clouds; and every eye shall (c)see HIM, and they also which (d)pierced HIM: and all tribes of the land shall wail because of HIM. (e)Even so, Amen.  

(e)  Emphatically so, it will happen.  "Amen", see 3:14 and 2 Cor. 1:20.  This is a transliteration, but the original word is variously translated: "verily" "truth", and "He is the truth" (Jn. 14:6).  In Isa. 65:16 "the God of truth" is "the God of Amen".  In Rev. 3:14, it refers to the speaker, who is identified in Chapter (1) as Christ the Resurrected  One!  

The "even so", shows the definite nature of the statement of verse 7 indicating that it will definitely happen!

3.14

And unto the angel of the Church in the (a)Laodiceans write; These things saith (b)The Amen the faithful and true Witness, (c)the beginning/chief ruler of the creation of God. 

(b)  “The  Amen" (see 2Cor. 1:20) Christ as God, and embodying all the promises and future fulfilment of Jehovah to Israel and the world.  The Enemy corrupted the Amen to Ammon with connection to the Greek Pagan chief god Zeus, with the obvious intention of corrupting and stealing the Hebrew meaning.  "The Faithful and True witness", (John 18:37).
