If you’ve been on Facebook at all, you’ve probably seen those pleading posts, featuring a very sick child or a suffering animal. Often the posts also show a picture of Yeshua/Jesus, with a request for the viewer to take action. “Type Amen for this baby and share,” the post commands. “Keep scrolling if you’re heartless.” Come on Facebook friends, WOW! Here is funny story I heard a few years ago. A preacher trained his horse to go when he said “Thank God” and to stop when he said “Amen”
The preacher mounted the horse and said “Thank God” and went for a ride. When he wanted to stop for lunch , he said ” “Amen.” He took off again saying “Thank God”
The horse started going toward the edge of a cliff. The preacher got exited and said “whoa! whoa!” Then he remembered and said “Amen” and the horse stopped at the edge of the cliff. The preacher was so relieved and grateful that he looked up to heaven and said “Thank God!” 🤣 On a more serious note, I had an email from a rather new Believer. He asked “What does amen mean and why does everyone want me to type amen?” In in Hebrew amen means ‘so be it’ or ‘yes,’ ‘I agree.’ Amen is one of the most universal words on our planet. And it’s one of the most important. For the word amen sums up everything we need to be saved, to live victoriously, and to fulfill your calling. What is faith? Faith is to say ‘amen’ to YeHoVaH/God. It is to say ‘yes’ to Him, ‘yes’ to His promises, ‘yes’ to His Word, ‘yes’ to His love; ‘yes’ to His will, ‘yes’ to His purposes, and ‘yes’ to the calling on your life. It is to say ‘I agree’ with Your Word, your will and it will be so. You can only be saved by giving your ‘amen’ to YeHoVaH/God. But it doesn’t stop there. You still have an ‘amen’ to give. If you want to grow, if you want to become strong in Our Father, then strengthen your ‘amen.’ Give Him a powerful ‘amen,’ with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. And you will see the power of Him move in your life (hopefully not off a cliff). For with YeHoVaH/God’s great promises and your great ‘amen,’ nothing shall be impossible for you. Amen? Just stop the nonsense of posts asking for you to type amen to save the fire ants 🐜 in Florida🙄.
