Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 18:15


18:15 Will raise up - Will produce and send into the world in due time. A prophet like unto me - Christ was truly, and in all commendable parts like him, in being both a prophet and a king and a priest and mediator, in the excellency of his ministry and work, in the glory of his miracles, in his familiar and intimate converse with God.

    There is only one True living GOD. (1st John 5:7) For there are three that bear record in heaven the FATHER, the WORD and the HOLY SPIRIT: these three are one. Read John1:1; John 10:30 I and my Father are one. Matt 28:19; John 14:26.

    DEUTERONOMY 18:20 BUT THE PROPHET WHICH SHALL PRESUME TO SPEAK A WORD IN MY NAME WHICH I HAVE NOT COMMANDED HIM TO SPEAK OR THAT SHALL SPEAK IN THE NAME OF OTHER GODS EVEN THAT PROPHET SHALL DIE

    DEUTERONOMY 18:21 AND IF THOU SAY IN THINE HEART HOW SHALL WE KNOW THE WORD WHICH THE LORD --- HATH NOT SPOKEN --- 18:22 WHEN A PROPHET SPEAKETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD IF THE THING FOLLOW NOT NOR COME TO PASS THAT IS THE THING WHICH THE LORD HATH NOT SPOKEN BUT THE PROPHET HATH SPOKEN IT PRESUMPTUOUSLY THOU SHALL NOT BE AFRAID OF HIM

    This is NOT a rebuke; simply a statement: Moses was not a Levite; his brother Aaron and his sons were; Aaron was the only one could go into the Holy of Holies. Moses was just a GREAT prophet and FRIEND of God.
  • Matt
    Moses was a ''type'' of Christ, not a god at all, period. He was a Levite, and was chosen to instruct the Israelites to worship God, and to prepare the way for our Savior. Jesus Christ, The Savior, is the only begotten Son of God: God Himself manifested in the flesh. The Prophet Moses wrote of in this chapter is Jesus. The Lord says this to the Pharisee Jews in John ch. 5: "for he wrote of Me."
