New American Standard Version of the BibleTo the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: 15`I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16`So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Revelation 3:14-16 (NAS)

Jesus is the Amen:

The word "amen" is of Hebrew origin and means "firm."  In a figurative sense it means "trustworthy," "surely," or "so be it."   When a prayer is ended with an "amen," in essence you end saying "surely" or "let it (the prayer) be so."

Jesus is "firm" and "trustworthy."  Through Jesus we can be assured of the promises of God:

New American Standard Version of the Bible"For as many as may be the promises of God, in Him (in Jesus) they are yes; wherefore also by Him (Jesus) is our Amen to the glory of God through us."  2 Corinthians 1:20  (NAS)

Jesus is the Faithful & True Witness:

The word "witness" is from the Greek word "martus" meaning witness or martyr (one who suffers death for a certain cause).  Jesus came to this earth so that He might be a witness of His Father...and to die for our sins:

New American Standard Version of the BibleFor the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. 18No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten God (Jesus), who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him. John 1:17-18 (NAS)

Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, 'Show us the Father'? 10"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. John 14:9-10 (NAS) 

Jesus is the Beginning of the creation of God:

In Revelation 1:17 and in Revelation 2:8, Jesus is spoken of as the first and last.  Jesus was not a created being.  Jesus was with God in the creation and was involved with His Father in the creation:

New American Standard Version of the BibleIn the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4 (NAS)

For He (the Father) delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15And He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation. 16For by Him (Jesus) all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created by Him and for Him. 17And He (Jesus) is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 He (Jesus) is also head of the body, the church; and He (Jesus) is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything. 19 For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fulness to dwell in Him (in Jesus), 20and through Him (Jesus) to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His (Jesus') cross; through Him, I say whether things on earth or things in heaven. Colossians 1:13-20 (NAS)
