We may be more familiar with God’s promises to Adam, to send a son who would crush the serpent’s head, and to Abraham, to raise up on offspring who would bless all the families of the earth. But what promise did God give Moses?
“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—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.’ And the LORD said to me, ‘They are right in what they have spoken. 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. And whoever will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him.” (Deuteronomy 18:15-19)
After centuries of prophets, God would send one final Prophet to end all prophets – and not just another man with a message, but…
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing
According to Peter, this Prophet would be sent to turn every one of us from our wickedness (Acts 3:26). O come let us listen to Him, Christ the Lord.
“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.” (Acts 3:19-21)
This Sunday, Randy Gruendyke will be preaching from Deuteronomy 18:15-19 and Acts 3:22-26 and Kenny Clark will be leading our sung worship. Would you take some time this week to read and reflect on these passages and pray for each as they prepare?
And let’s ask the Lord to give us listening ears and repentant hearts that we would enjoy these times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord as we wait for his soon return.
See you Sunday, Grace.
Song Link of the Week
Emmanuel God With Us by Chris Tomlin
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
That we can be forgiven
The weight of all our sin He came to bear
