“So [it shall be] that he who invokes a blessing on himself in the land shall do so by saying, May the God of truth and fidelity [the Amen] bless me; and he who takes an oath in the land shall swear by the God of truth and faithfulness to His promises [the Amen], because the former troubles are forgotten and because they are hidden from My eyes.” Isaiah 65:16 ->me: Yesterday was all about being given a new name much greater than our old name. Now see the effect of having a new name, given by our Lord -> we have new potentialities and prospects! The idea of the blessing discussed in this verse is entering into the blessing appropriate to one’s needs. Could be said “invokes on himself the blessing he needs”. The God of Truth is both the source of the blessing and the great object of devotion. The God of Truth is literally “The God of (the) Amen”. 2 Corinthians 1:20 says “For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes [answer] in Him [Christ]. For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God.” I believe in the God Who says ‘Amen’ to all His promises, affirming their reality and His trustworthiness to keep them. Finally -> Forgotten…Hidden from My eyes: What no longer has a place in God’s mind (forgotten) or presence (eyes) no longer has any ground of being – THANK GOODNESS!!
