Moses told the people he wouldn’t be following them into the promised land. This made the Israelites afraid and confused. Because Moses had been their everything. He was their leader, spiritual guide, prophet, and savior. But Moses told the people they needn’t fear. For God was going to send the true Savior. And not just for Israel, but for the entire world. A prophet even greater than Moses, He would be raised up by God, come from among the Israelites, and be worthy of being heard and obeyed. And the only One who met all the criteria was God Himself. The only begotten Son of God, Jesus is our great Prophet who came to deliver the world just as Moses delivered the Israelites. And through His birth in the little city of Bethlehem, He did just that. Providing all who believe unto Him the best Christmas gift of all, eternal life!
