In the book of Deuteronomy 18:17-19, Moses speaks of another Prophet who would come and God’s words would be in his mouth. This was spoken several thousand years before Christ entered the World. At the time of his ministry, Jesus mentions this to some of those who didn’t believe. This statement is still alive as an invitation for those who have yet to accept him.
45 Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, in whom you have put your hope. 46 If you had believed Moses, you would believe Me, because he wrote about Me. 47 But since you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?”
After meditating on this verse for awhile, the thought came to mind, wouldn’t it be cool to create a cross shape out of these verses in Deuteronomy.
Sometimes I wonder, how can the one referenced in this verse ever be confused with anyone other than Jesus. The Word indeed became Flesh and dwelt among us. God is Love, and Jesus lived a life displaying his perfect love for the Father and for us through the sacrifice he made on that cross, which just happened to take place during the weekend of Passover. Jesus, The perfect Lamb of God. It was never the nails that held him on that Cross, but His love for you and I.
