    Jesus Christ the “Amen.”

    Jesus Christ is the source of all faith. Faith has its beginning and end in Him. There can be no real faith that does not centre in Christ. Therefore when Abraham believed in the Lord, he believed in the Lord Jesus Christ. God has never been revealed to man except through Christ. 1John 1:18. The fact that Abraham’s belief was personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, is further shown by the fact that it was counted unto him for righteousness. But there is no righteousness except through the faith of Jesus Christ. He “is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” 21 Corinthians 1:30. No righteousness will be of any worth at the appearing of the Lord except “that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” 3Philippians 3:9. But since God himself counted Abraham’s faith for righteousness, it is plain that his faith was centred in Christ alone, in whom he was made righteous.EVCO 68.2

    And this demonstrates that the promise of God to Abraham was through Christ alone. The seed was that only which is through the faith of Christ, for Christ Himself is the seed. Abraham’s posterity, that was to be as the stars for number, will be the innumerable host who wash their robes in the blood of the Lamb. The nations that were to come from him will be “the nations of them which are saved.” 4Revelation 21:24. (Compare Matthew 8:2.) “For how many soever be the promises of God, in Him is the yea; wherefore also through him is the Amen.” 52 Corinthians 1:20, R.V. Christ Himself is “the Amen.” 6Revelation 3:14.EVCO 69.1
