The words “amen” and “hallelujah” are spoken and understood across many languages. What do they mean in the life of a Christian, though? Alistair Begg teaches us that the “amen” of Scripture is not just a verbal assent to the truth of God’s Word. Instead, it should be expressed in the actions of a transformed life. When we respond with an honest “amen” to God’s claim on our lives, we are able to say a true “hallelujah” of praise.
1After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out,
Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
2for his judgments are true and just;
for he has judged the great prostitute
who corrupted the earth with her immorality,
and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”1
3Once more they cried out,
The smoke from her goes up forever and ever.”
4And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who was seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!”
