it is presented to you as God’s last word.

Here then is what God presents in Christ. The Amen becomes personal. It is not a word now, not a saying, not an utterance, but a person. “These things saith the Amen.” It is the designation of the Person, the One Who in Himself is God’s final standard, the Verity, the faithful and true Witness. Christ comes before this church and, in effect, He says, I am the standard, there is nothing after Me, I have the final word, I represent the uttermost thought of God: you have to stand and measure yourself by Me. So you see the lie in the presence of the truth, the deception in the presence of the “verily”, all that is falling short of God’s thought in the presence of the full revelation of that thought in Christ. The way in which He introduces Himself to the Laodicean church is most significant. So the false is measured by the true. The one side of the balance is the Amen and the other side their state, with which they are so satisfied, which they think to be so perfect, so glorious. Over against the Amen, they go up in the balances and there is an exposure which calls for repentance, rectification and adjustment.

And this Person is in our spirit.

2 Timothy 4:22 The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.

We have the One in us who is the Amen to God.

2 Corinthians 1:20 For as many promises of God as there are, in Him is the Yes; therefore also through Him is the Amen to God, for glory through us to God.

To know the Amen, we need to know our spirit. We are made according to God's image and likeness. We are wonderfully made by God our Creator with a spirit to receive Him and have fellowship with Him. If we would walk in the light as He is in the light, and not be blind, poor, naked, wretched yet unaware like the Laodiceans, we must know our spirit.

Zechariah 12:1 The burden of the word of Jehovah concerning Israel. Thus declares Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens and lays the foundations of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him,

   Yes, life and truth are not concepts alone, but in the full reality are the person of our Lord Jesus Christ.  As concepts they may affect us objectively in the discernment of things, but as Joined to our spirits through the gospel, we subjectively know that truth and life are a person, as is the way into both.
