Prophet’s trumpet [a prophet like Moses]


The LORD your God will raise up… a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers--it is to him you shall listen-- And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. Deuteronomy 18:15, 18b ESV

Moses spoke with God and for God. There was no other prophet like him: humble and meek; full of power and resolution; obedient and courageous. He prophesied the Messiah’s coming declaring he would be “a prophet like me from among you.”

As the Israelites obeyed Moses, they were led out of slavery into the land of promise. Jesus, God Incarnate and the greatest of all prophets, leads us out of slavery to pride, rebellion, and fear; into the promise land of life in abundance.

Lead on!

“Jesus, lead me out of bondage into your freedom. Reveal to me the areas in my life in which I am still a slave and the promise land I should, by your Spirit, aggressively conquer.”
