Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verse 15, What it means today?
We See this scripture was very much in the minds of the Jew back at our Lord’s first Advent. This is one aspect of the Messiah, to be a mediator of a New Covenant like Moses was of the Old (Law) Covenant. So one question we might ask; Was Deuteronomy 18:15 fulfilled by AD 33? The answer is no. This role of mediator was not an operation of Jesus’ First Advent. The purpose of the First Advent was to pay the “Ransom”, and start the Gospel Age (calling of the Bride). This will certainly be fulfilled during his Second Coming.
Jesus is not “our” mediator. A mediator is a neutral party between two opposing parties (God vs. Man). Since we came under the blood, and been adopted as sons, we have fellowship with God. We are told that Jesus is our “advocate”, which means lawyer, he is on our side, not a neutral or disinterested party. He has a vested interest in us, he loves us (See Song of Solomon). He bought the field (World of Mankind) to get the pearl (The Bride). We are told that both the “ransom” and the “mediatorship” would be “testified in due time.” When is that due time?
During the Kingdom, when Jesus and his bride reign over the world for the Thousand Years. When the World of mankind, resurrected from the graves, comes back under the New Covenant (which does not go into effect until after Jacob’s trouble, when Israel will look upon him whom they have pierced and mourn (Zech 12:10).”
I have said a lot in those three paragraphs. It is not possible to go into depth on all these points. To help those interested in understanding more, I will link the scriptures back to the verse by verse studies where more detail is given.
Also here is a link to a discourse in MP3, “Like Unto Me.”
Joh 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
Act 3:22-23 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. 23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
Act 7:37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
1Ti 2:5-6 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
Heb 12:24-25 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
1Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
