Say Amen, Somebody!

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

Know you’ve got a word…AMEN

That is come from above…AMEN

Faith must be…AMEN…must be what you say…AMEN

So open your mouth…AMEN…and say Amen today…AMEN

Cause GOD HAS SPOKEN

I heard him when he said it…LET THE CHURCH let the church…SAY AMEN

(Lyrics copied and edited from—http://livemygospel.com/lmgWeb/2011/10/andrae-crouch-let-the-church-say-amen-lyrics/)

  So, if you believe Him for the change of the circumstances of your life…Say AMEN!!!!

      • Hi Sebastian.

        I will and I also believe by faith that It is already done. As in the natural, so in the Spirit.

        If God gave the vision, He will provide the provision. I touch and agree with you right now in the name of Jesus that it is done!

        God bless my brother.

        Love ya.

    I shout AMEN! We have an awesome, wonderful, loving, forgiving and most Gracious God who could have just left the world to rot in our own putrid sin—yet, He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to be born and live as a mere man, sinless in Himself, to die and take the “death” for our sins. If that doesn’t make a Christian want to “stand up and shout AMEN over and over again”…well… I’ll just leave it there.
    Amen brother for this post and sharing
