I. Promise

 

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. Deuteronomy 18:15-17

 

 

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. Deuteronomy 18:18-19

 

If anyone loves me, he will keep my word...Whoever does not love me does not keep my words.” John 14:23a, 24a

 

 

II. Fulfillment

 

17 And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18 But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled.19 Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, 20 that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, 21 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. 22 Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you. 23 And it shall be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people.’ [Acts 3:17-23]

 

III. Application:

 

 

Jesus is the Prophet who commands us to obey God’s authoritative Word!

 

 

Disobeying God’s authoritative Word comes with serious consequences!

 

 

Jesus is not only the Prophet who commands our obedience, He’s the Savior who empowers our obedience!
