How do we know we are blessed? God turns us from our wickedness through the powerful love act of His Son, Jesus Christ the LORD. Some interpret this passage as referring to another prophet but the Holy Spirit (through Moses and Paul) has encouraged our hearts by explaining that it has to be God (aka His Son).  Only He can capably turn us from our sin once and for all. – Teresa #allotherprophetsfallshort

Acts 3: 22-26 (ESV)

 22 Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you. 23 And it shall be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people.’ 24 And all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those who came after him, also proclaimed these days. 25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed.’ 26 God, having raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning every one of you from your wickedness.”
