Thayer mentions at the end of verses or prayers, the word “Amen” is said. His definitions include, “may it be fulfilled”.
Most often, at the end of a solemn prayer to God, the response is Amen.
“May it be” Amen
“Why are you whispering this to me”, I asked Him. Not only did He whisper about “may it be”, but also a song I had not sung for many years. I sang it in the shower no less; “The Lords Prayer”. Do you think that the drops of water brought the melody? That deserves an Amen.
I know that today is the 7th day for so many, and yet, to share His Word is relaxing to my spirit. It is not work. Yesterday, I celebrated the Sabbath. Jesus said, “What day would we not provide for others”? This is when the Pharisees rebuked Him for healing a man on the Sabbath. What day is not a good day to share Jesus? Jesus said there is no day not to love one another and to do good for others. “Go and do likewise”, He said to the disciples.
Luke 10:36-37 King James Version (KJV)
36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
Then not a whisper came on my walk this morning, but a Firefly. Yes, early in the morning at dawn, he flew by. His light was twinkling on and off. So as to say, “remember your light is shining”. The Light of Jesus is never dim.
Thinking of a firefly, his light is flashing. Why do you think this happens? A few aspects are; mating, attracting prey, and then a real unknown phenomenon.
The theory lies behind a synchronized flash of a group in spontaneous order. This could be a form of communication. Imagine a firefly sharing something as profound as their creation.
We are lights like them in a way. We flash to each other as a church. We share are oneness of likeness in Jesus.
The mating is as God intended for a woman and man to do. He said to be fruitful and multiply. The attraction of prey can be attracting those who are still full of sin without salvation. Then they see the lights shining and want the same thing. The light.
John 8:12 King James Version (KJV)
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
MAY IT BE!
