What Is the Last Word in God’s Word?

last

The last word in the most popular (and one of the oldest) versions of the Bible is VERY appropriate.

What is that last word?

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”
–Revelation 22:21

The last word in the Bible is “Amen.”

Why is AMEN appropriately the last word in God’s Word?

Amen (Hebrewאָמֵן‎, ʾāmēnAncient GreekἀμήνamênArabicآمین‎, āmīn(a); Aramaic/Classical Syriacܐܡܝܢ‎, ‘amīn) is an Abrahamic declaration of affirmation first found in the Hebrew Bible, and subsequently in the New Testament. It is used in JewishChristian and Islamic worship, as a concluding word, or as a response to a prayer.  Common English translations of the word amen include “verily”, “truly”, “it is true”, and “let it be so”. It is also used colloquially, to express strong agreement.

To modern man, the disconnect between ‘so be it’ and ‘amen’ appears to be a certainty in the media and other popular culture.

However, for YEARS, it was commonly taught that ‘Amen‘ meant ‘So be it.’

And now–if the reader was previously uninformed–the reader knows.

DID the reader know what the last word in the Bible was?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
