“The word ‘amen’ is from Ammon, the father god of Egypt, and was an ancient Egyptian salutation to the supreme power of the universe.” – Manly P. HallAmen

The ancient Greek name Ammon (Aum-en or Aum-on) later becomes “Amen” in the Abrahamic religions. The word Abraham is a deviation of Ham (Hebrew: חָם, Modern H̱am Tiberian Ḥām ; Greek Χαμ, Kham ; Arabic: حام, Ḥām), who the Egyptians were said to have called Ham; the father of Egypt who was the chief or first patriarch of Africa.

Ham is the Egyptian name for the planet Jupiter, who the Egyptians and Greeks held as the King of the Gods and Lord of the Universe. Before the ancient Greeks had conquered Egypt and had changed and/or merged their religions, symbols, custom, Gods and Goddess, they called Jupiter by the name of Zeus. After the Greeks had conquered Egypt, they would rename the Egyptian name Ham for Jupiter to the Greek Ammon (or Zeus-Ammon, Jupiter Ammon, Hamaun, or Hammon). Therefor, when the church Saints and Fathers state they are sons of Abraham, what they really mean is that they are sons of Egypt who have brought their Abrahamic religions with them from the East.

In the later ancient Greco-Egyptian dynasties, they knew of Ammon (Jupiter-Ammon) as “The Hidden One” who is “King of the Gods,” and the “Lord of the Thrones” of the visible and the invisible worlds. The “Creator God” who was the mysterious soul of the universe, which reveals itself in light. Ammon is the light, creator, builder and grand architect of the house and temple. Hail to Thee, Amon Ra, Lord of the thrones of the earth, the ancient of heaven, the oldest of the earth, Lord of all existences, the support of things, the support of all things. The One in his works, single among the gods, chief of all the gods; Lord of truth, father of the gods; maker of men, creator of beasts, maker of herbs, feeder of cattle, good power begotten of Ptah, to whom the gods give honor.

In Christianity, Ammon, later changed to the English word Amen, and is used to affirm or to praise the Lord and also as a name for the Lord. Amen in Hebrew, signifies true, faithful, and certain. To say the word amen is to indicate truth; we say it to receive that truth and to submit to it. Amen is used at the end of Our Lord’s Prayer. The Lord Jesus in the scriptures refers to himself as, “the Amen, the faithful and true witness” (Revelation 3:14), and “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” This would relates to om being the last letter in the Greek alphabet; Omega meaning the “great Om.”

The compound word Ammon or Amen is derived from the two words, am (om or aum) and en (on); written and pronounced like AUM-On or AHM-On. The first word in Amen is Am, and is from the Greek Om, and it is also the Sanskrit mantra OM, written AUM from the Hindu tradition. The word Om is from the last word in the Greek alphabet Omega, which means the “great Om.” The Greek lowercase letter Omega when turned to its side, looks very similar to the Sanskrit method of writing Om. Om is the Sanskrit Aum who is the name of God.

The second word in Amen is ‘En’, which can also be spelled as On or Un. The meaning of En or On, is a state of being, or power supply. It is through the Lord of the Thrones, that we power On the light to illuminate our minds, and the world around us. This is where we tap the internal fire to travel up Jacob’s Ladder to the heavenly kingdom of our father, Jupiter, to commune with God.

The mantra of Am, AUM or Om is the name of God, the vibration of the Supreme. It is important to pronounce amen (ah-men or /ɑːˈmɛn/) in the correct vibrational tone. Most people say it the wrong way in English when they say amen like ay-men or a-men. This is why it is referred to as the vibration of the Supreme. In Judaism, Jewish doctors have rules for pronouncing the word such as not too hastily and rapidly, but with a grave and distinct voice so that the gates of heaven are opened to him who answers, “Amen!” with all his might. Jewish law also mandates that individuals have to answer amen whenever they hear a blessing recited. In Rome, Jerome says when the people answered “Amen!”, the sound was like a clap of thunder. Muslims use the word ʾĀmīn (Arabic: آمين‎) when concluding a prayer.

Therefor, when you say Amen (AUM-On or AHM-On), you are saying the vibration of God, and are at a state of being with God or a source of Godly inspiration in which you are the conduit or power source.

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. – Romans 1:2

HERE ARE SOME QUOTES FROM THE ROSICRUCIANS AND MASONS

The Rosicrucians take on Amen;

Very few of the Christians in the Occidental world who use the word Amen (pronounced a-men) seem to realize that they are using a very ancient mystical word, and that their use of it is more or less incorrect and most certainly misunderstood. And, strange to say, very few Christians know that Jesus Himself was called “The Amen” as revealed in a passage in the Christian Bible. This illustrates how mystical words may be attached to ritualism without a correct understanding of their use, or their nature, and how such words may be continued in use through many centuries as a mere formality.(1)

The Masons state:

Every Masonic student will realize the fact that the Word A. U. M. is the original of Amen. Now Amen is not a Hebrew term, but like the word Hallelujah, was borrowed by the Jews and Greeks from the Chaldeans. The latter word is often found repeated in certain magical inscriptions upon cups and urns and among the Babylonian and Ninevean relics. Amen does not mean “so’ be it” or “verily,” but signified in the hoary antiquity of prehistoric ages almost the same as the sacred syllable A. U. M. In all our churches we pronounce the Sacred Syllable A. U. M., but, destroy the potency by mispronouncing the word and adding the N. You who have not been “duly and truly prepared” will fail to understand my meaning. (2)
