Twice in Deuteronomy we read that a prophet like Moses would be born.
“Yehovah, thy Elohim [thy lawmaker and judge], will raise up for thee a Prophet like me (a prophet like Moses) from thy midst, from thy brethren. Him you shall hear, according to all thou desired of Yehovah, thy Elohim, in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of Yehovah, my Elohim, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’
“And Yehovah said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you (a prophet like Moses) 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. (Deu 18:15-19)
Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; so Israel’s seed heeded him, and did as Yehovah had commanded Moses. But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom Yehovah knew face to face. (Deu 34:9-10)
This prophet speaks Yehovah’s words in Yehovah’s name; no other words or names!
How else is this prophet like Moses?
Moses was born for a specific purpose. Just before he was born, Moses’ sister Miriam prophesied saying, a male-child would be born who would save Israel (not the Egyptians) from the hands of Egypt.
Yasher 68:1 And it was at that time the spirit of Elohim was upon Miriam the daughter of Amram the sister of Aaron, and she went forth and prophesied about the house, saying, Behold a male-child will be born unto us from my father and mother this time, and he will save Israel from the hands of Egypt.
And Israel was saved by the the mighty arm of Yehovah working through Moses. As I see it this “prophet” is the “seed of the woman” who was spoken of in the garden just before Adam (and his woman followed him) was kicked out of the garden by Yehovah.
And I will put enmity between you [Satan] and the woman [Yehovah’s spiritually born men], and between your seed [those who live their lives in the flesh] and her seed [the seed of spiritually born men]; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” (Gen 3:15)
Oh – we get so confused when we think in the flesh and ignore the things of the spirit. A woman has no seed! But the spiritual man is born of flesh AND spirit. This is the difference between those who dwell on the earth and those who dwell in heaven.
The Israel who was delivered from Egypt were the spiritually born men who were not allowed to leave until right after the Passover in which they became Ezrach, spiritually born, 2nd born men.
That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new?” It has already been in ancient times before us. (Ecc 1:9-10)
Just like the male-child delivered Israel out of Egypt the first time, Continue reading A Prophet Like Moses
