Him(Jesus) you shall hear in all things, whatever He(Jesus) says to you. 23 And it shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet(Is God A Prophet?) shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.’[b] 24 Yes, and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who follow, as many as have spoken, have also foretold[c] these days. 25 You are sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God(=father) made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’[d] 26 To you first, God,(=father) having raised up His(God has Servants) Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.” (Jesus mission Statement.)
