Advent Meditations Week 1--Hope

December 3: Deuteronomy 18:15-22

  • How were the Israelites to know that a prophet was from God and spoke in His name? Did Jesus meet this standard? See Matt. 16:21 and Mark 10:32-34.
  • How was Jesus like Moses? See Deuteronomy 34:10, Acts 3:22-23 and Hebrews 9:15.
  • Trust Jesus’ promises for your life. He cannot lie.

Deuteronomy 18:15-22English Standard Version (ESV)

A New Prophet like Moses

15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen— 16 just as you desired of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God or see this great fire any more, lest I die.’ 17 And the Lord said to me, ‘They are right in what they have spoken. 18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. 19 And whoever will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him. 20 But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or[a] who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ 21 And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— 22 when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.
