Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23
The name Emmanuel reveals the personality of Christ. The name epitomize Christ place in deity. Christ as the son of God is an embodiment of heavenly glory, at one point He told his disciples "if you have seen me you have seen the father." Remember in the Old Testament God's presence dwelt in tabernacle made with man's hand. In the New Testament His presence is in us no longer in the ark of the covenant, for we are the mobile tabernacle of God's presence 1 Corinthians 3:16. He is the word that was made flesh and dwelt among us.
Christ been God dwelling among us and in us, reminds us of how important we are in this world. You carry the creator of the universe in you, do you know what that means. When this presence was in the ark of Moses in the Old Covenant it makes the ark terrific.
A clearer understanding of the position of the ark among God's people will only give you a slight Knowledge of who you are, simply because the ark was a shadow of better things to come. Praise God!!! His presence is not just with you like the ark, but God’s presence is in you. You are the effigy of His glory.
