The Amēns Pistis Sophia


Pistis Sophia: Chapter 93

"And that mystery knoweth why the twin-saviours have arisen and why the three Amēns have arisen.

"And that mystery knoweth why the five Trees have arisen and why the seven Amēns have arisen. 

Hebrew 0539 אמן ‘aman aw-man’
Greek 281. ἀμήν amen [am-ane’];

The Hebrew word ´a·man´ is applied to Yahweh as “the faithful God” (Deut 7:9; Isa 49:7)

For Jews, Amen is also an acronym for El Melech Ne’eman, which means “Mighty, Faithful King”.

Jesus Christ Called Himself the “Amen

Revelation 3:14 (KJV) 14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

So we can see from the bible that beings or persons can be called Amen. In some Gnostic texts an angel is named as the Amen:   

 The Book of Baruch by Justin

When the father knowing nothing beforehand
saw that half-virgin Edem, he burned for her,
and he the father is called Elohim,
and Edem burned equally for Elohim. Their desire
drew them to a single union of love.
From this coupling the father seeded twelve angels
for himself through Edem.
The paternal angels are Michael, Amen, Baruch, Gabriel, Esaddaeus

amen an angel of elohim in Justin's Baruch. In the secret Book of John an Archon responsible for creating the teeth

The first one, who is Raphao, began by creating the head,
Abron created the skull,57
Meniggesstroeth created the brain,
Asterechme the right eye,
Thaspomocha the left eye,
Yeronumos the right ear,
Bissoum the left ear,
Akioreim the nose,
Banen-Ephroum the lips,
Amen the teeth,

Pistis Sophia: And Jesus hail not told his disciples to total expansion of the emanations of the Treasury, nor their orders, how they are extended; nor had he told them their saviors, according to the order of every one, how they are; nor had he told them what guard is at every (gate) of the Treasury of the Light; nor had he told them the region of the Twin-savior, who is the Child of the Child; nor had he told them the regions of the three Amens, in what regions they are expanded; nor had he told them into what regions the five Trees are expanded; nor as to the seven Amens, that is the seven Voices, what is their region, how they are expanded. (Pistis Sophia)

The regions of the three Amens are symbolized by the first three emanations of the Pleroma

The seven Amens are the seven Planetary rulers or the seven archangels 

The seven Amens are the seven Voices, that is the seven spirits of God 

Revelation 4:5: And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

the seven Spirits before the Throne of the Lamb,

Revelation 5:6: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

the seven Planetary Spirits, and the seven Regions

the Twin Saviour, who is the Child of the Child:

The Gospel of Thomas Saying 108. Jesus said: He who drinks from my mouth will become like I am, and I will become he. And the hidden things will be revealed to him.
