Deuteronomy 4:33-35; 18:15-19 and Acts 3:22-25 show us two things very clearly:
1. The One who spoke out of the fire to Israel and the same One who promised Israel to raise up a prophet so they would never need to hear the voice of Yahweh anymore. And we learn from Acts 3:22-25 that Yahweh God who made this promise raised up his servant-son Jesus is clearly identified as the Father who made that promise. Therefore we know it was the Father speaking out of the fire on the mountain. And Moses tells us that only the One who spoke out of the fire is God at Deut 4:33-35, "He is God and there is no one else besides Him.... there is no other." Since the Scriptures tell us that the One who spoke out of the fire is the Father, the Scriptures also tell us that only the Father is God and no one else; there is no other.
2. Jesus cannot be Yahweh because he is the prophet who God raised up so that the people would not need to hear the voice of Yahweh. People did hear Jesus' voice. If we said Jesus is Yahweh, then Yahweh did not keep his promise to Israel, and the people did hear the voice of Yahweh voiding God's promise. But the Scriptures testify that Yahweh did make this promise, and did keep this promise by raising up the prophet Jesus, in whose mouth Yahweh put his words so that the people would not again hear Yahweh's voice. Therefore, the Scriptures tell us that Jesus cannot be Yahweh; he is not God.
