Meaning of faith, amen

Q10: What about faith ?

   faith

In Ancient Hebrew the word faith means "The strong" "flow" "firmly" as a seed "continues".

The picture here can be confusing if we do not see this child root, from its root meaning. At first it looks like the "strong flow" which were letters for "mother", remember ? To explain the idea of root words and child words, see the Hebrew words using "faith" here:-

   faith - amen "The strong" "flow" as a seed "continues". When we say "amen" we affirm the strong flow of people will continue. The "n" word is a picture of a seed, the sperm of the people that continues. This sperm is the living germ of the seed. It is called in the Bible the "life germinating principle". Each seed we plant in the ground continues as long as it contains the "life germinating principle" or the "strong flowing seed" will germinate into a seedling of truth. This is why Jesus says without faith it is impossible to please Him.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him:

May the "strong flowing seed" of Jesus germinate in us each day. Shalom
