18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brothers, like you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
19 And it shall come to pass, that whoever will not heed [listen to and obey] my words that he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.2 [The prophet is Jesus, the new covenant of light given to all nations; so this warning applies to all nations, all men. Jesus, the light given to every man that comes into the world, so they might believe, John 1:7,9, anonymously pleads with every man to turn from his evil ways; and when a man dies, those words he heard and ignored will be remembered, and will judge him. John 12:48.]
|Acts 3:22-23 |
22 For Moses truly said [about Jesus] to the forefathers, 'From among you the Lord your God shall raise up a prophet like me from your brothers; you shall listen to him in everything, whatever he says to you.
23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul that does not listen to and obey that prophet will be destroyed and removed from the people.'2 [This also applies to all men in all nations for Jesus, the light in every man, anonymously pleads with men to turn from their evil ways; but most men in their darkness ignore those pleas because they love their selfish, sinful life. If a man heeds those pleas, the Lord pours more of His Spirit on them, giving them a hunger to seek Him further. When they die, those who did not wait to listen and then obey the Lord will be banned from heaven, and their souls will be destroyed. From the Word of the Lord within: "Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. All men are without excuse; if I were silent, they would have an excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion. The way is clear: listen and obey."]
