Was Muhammad Like Moses?

Muslims use Deuteronomy 18:18 which says, I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. I will put My words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him.

They claim that since Moses was a prophet and a warrior, they try to say that that was the qualification that Muhammad met. That type of interpretation is like what a butcher does to meat. Let us see what the real qualification was for the prophet who fulfilled Moses’ statement, “I will raise up for them a prophet like you [Moses] from among their brothers”

It’s All In The Blood Of Jesus

The sheep and goat’s blood on the doorposts was a sign of being protected from death by the animal’s blood. This refers to a creature dying in your place so that God’s judgment, the death of every firstborn, would stop the angelic destroyer from caring it out.

What Does “The Fear Of The LORD” Mean?

The word “fear” brings to the reader the understanding that when it is used for God, it’s a positive and good thing. For example. You are driving a car with a speed limit of 45. And, while the road starts to curve, you see a cop car stationed at the end of the curve. You notice that you are driving too fast, 55 miles an hour. Your fear for the officer makes you slow down to the speed limit of 45. Now, your fear wasn’t that the officer was going to torture you for going too fast but that he had the authority to punish you with a ticket for breaking the law.

The Lord Will Keep You From Stumbling And Falling Away

The word “stumbling” means that a person who professes to follow Jesus stumbles and falls, keeping the person from doing God’s will. In other words, it halts the individual from continuing to obey the Scriptures. All Christians without exception stumble at times and then get back up with the power of the Holy Spirit. But in this passage, the word is much stronger.

Stay Alert For The Rapture Is Near

If the rapture takes place right after the seven years of the Great Tribulation, then we would know the return of Jesus Christ. And we understand that the Scripture says no one can know. Why would a believer stay alert if we knew when He was coming? But, the passages make it clear that since we don’t know, all believers must be in constant readiness for the rapture. That means that Christians have to be busy doing His will and living a life of righteousness and not in sin.
