Him you shall hear... `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.

A Prophet Like Moses The Messiah will be a prophet like Moses, He will be Jewish, He must be Obeyed. Deuteronomy 18:15-19 "The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear... `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. Jn 6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world."

Deuteronomy 18:15-19 Bible Prophecy about the Messiah Deuteronomy 18:15-19 - The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear... `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.

Jesus was the Prophet Like Moses Jn 6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world." Key Points: - This Messianic prophecy is recognized in both Judaism and Christianity as a clear reference to the Messiah. - In this prophecy is one of the most specific predictions of Christ mentioned in the Old Testament. - Jesus understood this passage two referred to Himself (John 5:46). - Peter preached at Pentecost that this referred to Jesus (Acts 3:22). - This Verse is important because it clearly states that Judaism would not be the system by which the nation of Israel would bless all nations. - A "Prophet like me" refers to someone like Moses, who would hear from the Lord and perform mighty miracles like the Prophet Moses. Jesus would lead His people out of slavery. - Num 12:6-8 "Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak to him in a dream. Not so with My servant Moses; He is faithful in all My house. I speak with him face to face." - "from your brethren" speaks of the Messiah being a Jew. - "Him you shall hear" refers to the fact that the Jews were to hear and obey the voice of the Messiah. The word "hear" is reminiscent of the Hebrew "Shema" Hear O Israel. - Whenever Jesus mentioned that He heard the voice of His Father, He was hinting back at this verse I "will put My words in His mouth". The Messiah will be the Word of God. Every word He speaks will be God's word. - The Lord also pronounces judgment upon anyone who will not obey the word to the Messiah, by saying "I will require it of him" which means he will bear the judgment. God will treat any Jewish brother like an unbeliever if he does obey the Messiah's words.
