God fulfills His promise which has been given for Israel, concerning His presence among the people.
The promise was filled in the next time by the Virgin Mary, who gave birth to
a descendant of David, Jesus Christ – the Son of God Almighty.
He is the Word of God made flesh, to dwell among us. The body of the Son is the true temple of God [J 2, 21].
The promise of being a God among men, is also performed by His Name.
Many times Christ spoke the words:
“I AM. “
And when the mission of Jesus is filled, He leaves, ensuring that the promise will continue to be filled.
And indeed, this promise is realized even today, for example, in the presence of God in the Blessed Sacrament, or by the existence of the Christian Church, not in terms of buildings, but in the sense of the followers of God – the Church, which despite the many persecutions over the centuries, after all was not destroyed – is still ongoing.
Matthew 1, 21 nn
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins.” 22 Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,” which being interpreted is “God with us.”
Matthew 11, 25 nn
25 At that time Jesus answered and said: I confess to you, O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, because you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to little ones. 26 Yea, Father: for so has it seemed good in your sight. 27 All things are delivered to me by my Father. And no one knows the Son but the Father: neither does any one know the Father, but the Son, and he to whom it shall please the Son to reveal him.

I do always the things that please him.
