THE LAST WORD IS THE FINAL SAY. The Last Word Of The Bible Is The Final Say When It Comes To The Decision That You Make About Your Eternal Habitation. But then you may not care about what happens to you until it is too late.
The word "amen" means "so be it". Considering that the Bible is a collection of books that contain information that was written over thousands of years, "so be it" could be of more significance than what many would like to admit.
That "the grace of the Lord Jesus be with all" may seem of no significance to those who disregard their only hope of eternal life, does not mean the words are of no significance at all. Those who know Lord Jesus Christ, and have received the joy of salvation, understand the significance of "the amen"—for it is so. To be able to know that one has entered from death into life, and that this is the end of the matter, has great significance to those who experience the reality of this transition. In respect to one's eternal habitation, this is more than relief from one's mind, for the discovery that one is truly saved, and their is no doubt, because of the assurance within, exceeds anything else on Earth.
People who have no hope, scoff at someone like me because I know I have the joy of salvation. Yet because they are the losers, ought I rejoice by saying, "Amen!" at this point? Would that be significant? To do so, would be to offend those who feel I am being condemnatory. For I would be saying that they are losers and, so be it, they will always be losers. (Amen! is inappropriate here.)
Words only have significance when people understand what they mean and if they see any reference in the meaning to themselves. Words can be like water on the back of a duck. Some people have no understanding of what is meant. However, in some cases, when certain people find out what the significance of a word means, unfortunately, it may be too late to take action.
The Word of Life is powerful. The Bible informs us that in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. So be it. Amen! In Him is life and the life is the light of each person. So be it. Amen!
However, if the light in a person is darkness, this raises another question. How great is the darkness?
In the end, each one chooses whether to reject the grace of Lord Jesus Christ or not. This is because we have freewill. Amen!
The fact that the word "amen" is the last word in the Bible is significant. For even though the Bible is a collection of many books, it is also a coherent collection that reveals the purpose of God for mankind and why people are always talking about love but never actually love. How can I say this? Because love never ends. Amen!
God's love for us is such that even though we may not measure up to expectations, the grace of Lord Jesus Christ is extended to us all. Amen!
Do I desire to use "the amen" when I know people reject the grace of Lord Jesus Christ and their hope of eternal life? Not really. However, since each one has been given freewill, it is significant that each has been given his or her right to exercise it. With this I agree, therefore, I will say, Amen!
Each one has one's own eternal destiny within one's own grasp. Is there no significance when each one agrees and says, "So be it, for it is so"?
Sounds rather final really, when we hear the words, so be it, for it is so. This is what is meant by "Amen!"
For "amen" to be the last word in the Bible, this is of great significance indeed. The word tells us that the message within the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, irrespective of what you might think, is final.
