    Verse 18~These words found their major fulfillment in Jesus Christ. Jehovah God used not only another human prophet, but his only-begotten son Jesus Christ.

    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!
