“This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Your presence and attention is appreciated as we present the word of God. Today I am speaking to you on the subject, “The Prophet Like Moses.” In the book of Revelation we have the record of an Angel appearing to John the apostle. He was so awed by this Angel that he started to fall down and worship the Angel. But as he fell to his feet the angel said to him, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10 NKJV).
The New Testament is the testimony of Jesus. It is the testimony about Jesus. It is a testimony of Jesus. It is the testimony that the apostle wrote about Jesus. But the angel told John that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Therefore since we are talking about the prophet like Moses, then our question is, “Are these prophecies in the Old Testament about Jesus?” Is the spirit of the Old Testament prophecy about Jesus?
Now about 1500 years before Christ was born there was a prophet by the name of Moses. And I call upon your memory of the life of Moses. When he was born, and when he was brought up in Egypt, he became a great leader of the people of God who were in slavery and servitude. I can recall that story and I hope that you can too.
When Moses gave what we call the second giving of the law, which was actually his valedictory speech before he died and God buried him in a place of which no man knows even to this very day. The book of Deuteronomy is the second giving of the law, a valedictory speech of Moses before he died. And in the book of Deuteronomy, Moses made this statement before he died:
“The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear, according to all you desired of the LORD your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’ “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.
