Deuteronomy 18:15 records where Moses prophesied of Jesus' coming, and Acts 3:22 repeats the same thing thru the message of Stephen as he preached to the Jewish religious leaders shortly before his martyrdom. In this post, I want to take a closer look at the parallels between the life of Moses and Jesus by which the prophecies foretold, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you.".
Before I go any further, I want to propose one way we can apply this Word to our lives so that it's not just information we can hear and consider nice; but that it would be a challenge to us to make a part of our lives not only for ourselves but to those we can share it with. And that is this: Just as Moses was used as a type of Christ; so we too can be a living allegory by the things Holy Spirit imparts to us. As followers of Christ, we've all been given seed that has grown or will grow into fruition. What I would ask from people who read this would be to ask God what are some gifts or wisdom He's given you that you can now relate and share with the people in your spheres of influence. All the while keeping in mind the Word of God which reminds us that Christ is our Head, but throughout our lives, He has given us leaders whom we submit to their authority. (As outlined in Hebrews 13:17) So it's for that cause I now write for their joy, our benefit, and for the glory of God this piece...
