Raise Up

The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. Deuteronomy 18:15

When you think of the prophet Moses, you probably view him as one of the greatest or maybe the greatest prophet of The Bible. Heres a man who personally talked to God and led the Israelites out of 400 years of slavery. However Moses himself stated, God was going to raise up someone even greater than Moses, and we should listen to him
First notice the terminology Moses uses here, Raise up! Its because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ that we have victory of sin and death. Moses is not only prophesying about our Lord Jesus Christ , but he’s also foretelling about the resurrection.

Moses also states, that the Messiah will be Jewish. As we know Jesus fulfilled this, he was born in Bethlehem, eventually living in Nazareth. He fulfilled the prophecy of being from the line of David, Jesus is The Lion of Judah

Some might say Moses was referring to Joshua, this only confirms the fulfillment of Jesus Christ even more. Joshua translated in Hebrew is Yeshua which translates to Jesus. It’s no coincidence that the one who superseded Moses had the same name as Jesus Christ.

For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17

The gospel of John confirms the prophecy, after Moses delievered The Law of God, Jesus delivered truth and grace at the cross. Listen to Jesus Christ as Moses commanded, bow before the King of Kings Amen!
