And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.—Nehemiah 8:6 (King James)
The word Amen is often used by Christians and non-Christian alike, at the close of a prayer or even in agreement of something said—it does not have to be in a religious setting. But Amen, when used, does signify your agreement with what has been said.
Concerning the Word of God in the life of the Believer, it is important that we accept what God is saying to us as truth and to say Amen! This says, ‘I agree’ or ‘it is truth’ and I will abide by it. Whenever the Word says that we are saved (delivered), healed, strong, or even prosperous—we should say AMEN!
There are too many defeated, dying, sinning, broke, and excuse-making Christians! We serve a mighty God…somebody say, Amen!!!
There is a song that is pretty popular right now in Gospel Music that sums up what I am trying to say. Portions of the lyrics are printed below and an audio clip follows. This is as performed by Bishop Marvin Winans.
Let the Church Say Amen
Written By: Andrae Crouch – Performed By: Bishop Marvin Winans
When we receive a word from the Lord our answer should be “Amen.”
Let the church say Amen,
Make this your response… AMEN
To whatever he says …AMEN
From the healing of your body…AMEN
To the raising of the dead…AMEN
No matter how you feeling…AMEN
Or how your world is reeling…AMEN
Battle on through the night…AMEN
Cause you’re going to win the fight…AMEN
Even in the valley…AMEN
Or standing at your red sea…AMEN
Continue to say…AMEN
Cause your help is on the way… AMEN
My God has spoken
I heard him…LET THE CHURCH…So let the church say…SAY AMEN
I need you to say it…AMEN
When your dream is about to die…AMEN
Knowing that god is not a man…AMEN
He just can’t lie…AMEN
In spite of what…AMEN…the devil does…AMEN
