God’s Prophet today is none other than Jesus Christ. After Jesus fed 5000 men (not counting women and children!) with 5 barley loaves of bread and 2 small fish, then gathered up 12 baskets full (more than He started with!), “Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, ‘This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world’ (John 6:14 NKJV).  God made it clear, with such an overwhelming miracle witnessed by thousands, that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.  “And many of the people believed in Him, and said, ‘When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?'” (John 7:31 NKJV).  God has not given such miraculous demonstrations to endorse anyone else as His Prophet.  Jesus’ miracles should lead us to Him and no other.
