Jesus Christ is the GREAT Prophet like Moses
February 26 Bible Reading: Deuteronomy Chapters 16-18
In our readings today from Deut 18, we see that Moses prophesies that God will raise up a great Prophet like him in the future. "The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear… And the Lord said to me: 'What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him" (Deut 18:15, 17-19).
This prediction was literally fulfilled fifteen hundred years later in our Lord Jesus Christ who was referred to by Apostle Peter (Acts 3:22, 23) and by Stephen, the first Christian martyr (Acts 7:37). Jesus Christ is The Prophet, great above all other prophets; by whom God would make known Himself and His will to the children of men, more fully and clearly than he had ever done before. Jesus Christ is the Light of the world (John 8:12), and He would reveal the hidden mysteries of God. He is The Word by whom God speaks to us (John 1:1; Heb 1:2). He should be like unto Moses, only above him. Whoever refuses to listen to Jesus Christ today, shall find out one day that this Prophet will be his/her Judge in the future (John 12:48).
