In the Old Testament the word 'Emunah' means believe, faithful, trust. And the 'Amen' is also used to mean 'truth'.
In the New Testament the word 'Amen' is also translated as 'the truth'.
The fear of the Yehovah is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10
A life focused on Yehovah is the starting point of 'Emunah'. In all situations to remember Yehovah. From the start of day to the end - remember Yehovah, remember Yeshua.
In the NIV version of the Old Testament, the Hebrew word 'Emunah' is translated to English as faithful or trust.
In the NIV version of the New Testament, the Greek word 'amén' is translated to English as 'amen' 30 times - the same word is translated as 'the truth' 74 times.
'Amen' and 'Emunah' have a very similar meaning in a prayer. 'Emunah' carries a deeper sentiment - the faith, believe, trust are significant when praying. Praying from a place of always putting Yehovah first - He wants us to pray, to pray for everything, even the smallest of things - starting with Emunah and ending with Emunah!
Everything comes from Yehovah - and be greatful when you receive it, and accepting His timing when you dont. Only Yehovah can provide for you - there is no other provider! Living a life of dependancy on Yehovah - this is Emunah - 100% trust in Yehovah. Ask for the small things and the big things.
There is no where else to look - nowhere else to go - there is only one door to knock on! This is our faith - to trust in
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
When life gets difficult you can say "Yehovah is with me, He will be my provider" - Trust! Emunah!
We start with songs of adoration, exortation and worship we dont simply say 'Amen' - we live 'Emunah'! We believe in the Holy Spirit of Yehovah that lives in us. That Holy Spirit gives a peace which transcends all understanding.
"These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation." Rev 3:14
And the final words in the Book of Revelations "Amen, Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's People. Amen"
With this peace we can truely believe, truely have real faith, truely trust in Yehovah.
This 'Emunah' is real when we truely believe, truely have real faith, truely trust in Yeshua.
