The Gold Standard Of Prophecy

Key Verse

“The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken” (Deuteronomy 18:15).

TEXT — Deuteronomy 18:14-22


Having foreknowledge of the future emergence of false prophets on Israel’s religious landscape, the omniscient God gave Moses what would be the gold standard for all prophets and prophecies. Moses was a revered prophet in Israel, no doubt, but God promised another “Prophet”, One who, by divine inspiration in Acts 3:20-22, would later be confirmed as this gold standard, and greater than Moses. Whereas Moses was a mediator of the old covenant with all its flaws, Jesus Christ became “the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.”

It is common, at this dawn of a New Year, to read about prophecies in the media, ranging from the mundane to the incredibly outrageous. The tone and content of some of the “prophecies” clearly convey their intent to give media visibility to the “prophet” and to win him some space in the national consciousness. For the most part, those prophecies ring hollow and no one seems to care when, as often happens, the prediction fails to be fulfilled. God cares, though. He cared enough to punish Hananiah whose false prophecy gave false hope to a rebellious nation; he died within a year (Jeremiah 28). Purveyors and purchasers of fake prophecies should beware!

Jesus Christ is God’s Word personified. His “more sure word of prophecy” promises eternal life and earthly fulfilment to all who hear and obey Him. Christ speaks of assured forgiveness to the repentant and spiritual refreshing to those who believe. His words calm the raging storms of human calamity and distress.

Come to Jesus today with your burdens and sorrows; and you will find in Him a faithful Companion through all the challenges you will ever face.

Thought for the day

Life’s roadmap is found not in the media or men’s works but in the Scriptures.
