The final word!
One of our readings on Sunday was from Revelation 22, which is the final chapter in the Bible. If you didn't know this, the Final word of the Scriptures is the word, 'AMEN.' This word has remained untranslated from the original Hebrew word. It can mean the following things:
'Let it be so'
So when John finishes his account of Revelation with the word 'Amen' he could be referring to the first part of verse 21, "The Grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people,' OR he could also be referring to the whole vision of Revelation, OR even the whole Bible.
Let it be so!.... Oh Yes!....Truly!
We worship a God who was, who is and who is to come again. That is the FINAL WORD!
Let us hold true to the promises of our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
Living in Grace
