Memory Verse
“But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit,
And who trembles at My word” (Isaiah 66:2).
Words Of Wisdom
In Isaiah 66, God is pictured as sitting on a throne with the earth
as His footstool. He is the Creator who values people who are
humble, contrite and who follow His word. In one way or another,
this has been Isaiah’s message throughout this book. God wants
His people to follow the truth He has revealed to them. Pointing
the people back to the Word of God, the Prophet Isaiah was
indicating that they needed to obey it if they were to enjoy His
blessings.

Memory Verse
“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” (Deuteronomy 18:18).
 
The ultimate “Prophet” like Moses is Jesus Christ—the One who spoke
God’s words and who provides deliverance for His people. Not even
Joshua could be compared to Moses, because, since Moses, “no
prophet has risen in Israel like” him (34:10) with such power before men
and intimacy with God. However distinguished a future prophet’s role
might be in Israel, none would be like Moses until the Mediator of the
New Covenant, Jesus Christ, came. Moses set the standard for every
future prophet. Each prophet was to do his best to live up to the
example of Moses until the One came who would “speak to them [the
Jews] all that I command Him.”
