Scripture: Deuteronomy 18:18
Growing into Christlikeness means molding ourselves after Jesus and part of that process is understanding all of Who He is. The depth of the character of Christ is a mystery we have to pursue praying in tongues as a way of getting there! Deuteronomy 18:18 says, “I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him.” God put His words in Moses’ mouth and Moses spoke and did everything God told him to do. God said, “I will raise up for them a Prophet like you…” Jesus is a prophet like Moses, and what does that mean? It means we have to look at Moses to better understand a key aspect of Who Jesus really is. What kind of prophet was Moses? Moses was a prophet who had to demonstrate God’s love in incredibly hard ways. God’s people had been in bondage 400 years and Moses’ job was to execute God’s love for His people with judgment on the Egyptians. Moses executed God’s love until the Egyptians let God’s people go. Jesus is a prophet like Moses and we have to be prepared to walk in this judicial element of the prophetic calling. Once we wake up to that fact, that mystery is a mystery no longer, God’s mysteries can be discerned as God wills through our heavenly language.
