Greater Prophet

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

While reading this from a Christian perspective, this may not seem like a big statement by Moses. However lets remember who Moses was at this time. Moses at this time was the greatest prophet that lived. He talked to God face to face on Mt Sinai, He parted the Red Sea with God and marched the Israelites to safety. With God, Moses brought the deadly plagues to Egypt to show Pharaoh that Yahweh was the One True God

Up till this time,nobody has ever seen anyone like Moses, but Moses now said somebody even greater than him is coming. How can someone be even greater than Moses, a man who talked to God personally as a friend? Because Jesus is the Son of God, the Word in living Flesh!

As Moses predicted the Messiah (Christ) would come from Israel, as Jesus did. And he performed greater miracles than Moses, The Great I AM has come into the flesh!

“Moses said, ‘THE LORD GOD WILL RAISE UP FOR YOU A PROPHET LIKE ME FROM YOUR BRETHREN; TO HIM YOU SHALL GIVE HEED to everything He says to you. Acts 3:22

Some might say well Moses was referring to Joshua. Well Peter confirms by the Holy Spirit, that Moses was referring to Jesus Christ. Peter reveals to them they killed their own Messiah but God raised him from the dead (Acts 3:15)

Everyone who does not listen to Him (Jesus) will be completely cut off from among HIS people (Acts 3:23)  Jesus is the only way to salvation, rejection of him is rejection of eternal life!
