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.

    Sheena; You shall not be afraid of false prophets! The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge, and the foundation of repentance and conversion out of an honest and sincere heart. Our conscience smites us sore when we do wrong, because it is the Spirit of God convicting us and warning us away from the evil and worthless ways of the devil. The man sent from God speaks by God!
