The consequence of not hearing the words of the prophet like Moses 

Old Testament: Deu 18.17–19

To read the Bible in a year, read Deuteronomy 17–19 on March 12, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

During the Wilderness Wanderings of the children of Israel, the Lord spoke to Moses of another prophet that would arise in Israel: 

“And the LORD said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.”

– Deuteronomy 18.17–19 

This new Prophet would speak the words of God. Therefore, to reject the words of that Prophet is to reject the words of God himself. For that, the Lord God promised that he would require it of anyone who will not hear the words of that Prophet. Acts 3.17–26 shows that Jesus of Nazareth is that Prophet. 

Many people like to say that they believe in God, but they are not into Jesus. However, it is impossible to separate the two. If you reject Jesus Christ, you reject the Father. God the Father promised that he will require it of that person, but here God did not specify what exactly he would do. Do you want to find out what it is? Do not learn by experiencing it. Obey the Lord Jesus Christ and enjoy all the spiritual and eternal benefits that accompany obedience.
