The Ark of His Testament

John said in Revelation 11:19 that the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament…” In the Old Testament the ark represented the presence of the Lord. Within the ark was the tables of stone, the golden pot of manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded. God would come to commune with the high priest once a year over the mercy seat of the ark as the priest made atonement for Israel’s sin. But when we come to the New Testament, Jesus is the ark of the covenant. The word ark in the Hebrew means coffin, and the children of Israel carried the box for all those generation’s not knowing that it pointed to Jesus who had to lay down in the ark for three days and three nights. It was a funeral, and the priest were the pallbearers! It was a shadow of the burial of Christ! Jesus was the word in the coffin, he was the true manna that came down from heaven, and he was Aaron’s rod that budded. And now he’s not a dead word in the ark (coffin), but he’s the living word inside of every believer. We have the presence of the Lord inside of us.”
