Jesus, our ark of the Covenant,

Text: Hebrew 9:1 -28
By Olubunmi Oyebami
God is always in the business of making provision and protection for the safety of the Human race since the beginning of creation.   He was able to keep the human race by the ark, He told Noah to build “And, behold, I even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou and thy sons, and everything that is in the earth shall die” Gen 6:17-18. Moses's mother by the leading of the Holy Spirit was able to get him an ark of bulrushes because she knew by the leading of the Holy Ghost that Moses was a child of destiny “ And when she could no longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flag by the river’s brink” Exodus 2:3.
 The main purpose Moses was born, was to deliver and bring  the Israelites out of the bondage of the Egyptians. Moses was protected inside the ark until the moment Pharaoh’s daughter got him out, and paid his mother to take care of him for her. Moses got his name from Pharaoh’s daughter which means because "I drew him out of the water." This exactly was what Moses will do, to bring the people of God out of the land of Egypt. These were divinely arranged by God so that His purpose for the Israelites can be fulfilled. Moses was also instructed by God to build an ark of the covenant.
God moved from the level of putting mankind in the ark to the level of following them with an ark of  the covenant. Anytime, the Israelites showed up with the ark of  the covenant into the camp of the enemy, the enemy will begin to curse themselves because they knew that they were in trouble  for there will not be anybody that can withstand the presence of the ark of covenant. The ark was housed in a tabernacle and the ark was a 2 and half by 1 and a half cubit rectangular wooden chest with its lid being the mercy seat with the cherubim of glory facing one another with wings outstretched. When the Israelites crossed the Jordan,  the ark went before them Joshua  3:10-17

 Inside the ark of covenant contain 3 things Hebrews 9: 4
2 unbroken tablets – the Ten Commandments
A golden pot containing an omer of manna this represents God’s provision
Aaron's  budded rod represents Christ priesthood
It was carried in the tent for many years and later King David brought the ark into the city of Zion and later King Solomon built a temple. God decided to become flesh and dwell among us.
The ark was a picture of Jesus Christ which symbolizes the glory of God, the presence of God, the grace of God and the mercy of God.

From the beginning of creation, God has shown interest in the human race by protecting them from the enemy. He gave us a name that is above every other name “ Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things under the earth and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father ”Phil 2: 9-11. Anytime a believer shows up with the name of Jesus, the enemy will begin to fear. The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous runs into it and they are saved.

The name of Jesus Christ can withstand
Water – Matthew 14: 24-27
Flood- Genesis 6: 17-18
Fire\Flame - Daniel 3: 24-25
Death- Luke 7:11-17
Storm – Matthew 8: 23-27
Sickness\Diseases- Matthew 8:13

Now, God has moved to the level that makes Jesus Christ reside in our heart that is, He said in Rev 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and open the door, I will come in to Him, and will sup with him, and he with me” The ark of covenant was where God's justice and judgment toward the sins of man were satisfied “ But Christ became a High priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not of this building; neither by the blood of bulls and of goats and calves, but by His own blood, He enters once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us”Hebrew9:11-14
The same way that Noah’s ark became the salvation of Noah’s family so Christ was sent as an ark and anyone that believes in  Him shall be saved.
