TOUCH NOT THE POLES


Exodus 25: 15"The poles shall remain in the rings of the ark; they shall not be removed from it.”


Sandwiched between scriptures, I found the above verse that captured my attention, why is the Lord so particular in giving the above instruction about the poles?


The poles were to be placed into the rings on the corners of the ark and not removed, because the Ark was to be carried on the shoulders of the Levites who were assigned the duty of carrying it (Deuteronomy. 10:8), but who were also warned never to touch the ark or any of the holy items from inside the Tabernacle under the penalty of death (Num. 4:15). The PURPOSE OF THE POLE WAS ONLY TO REST ON THE SHOULDERS OF THE LEVITES WHO SHOULD CARRY THE ARK.  While removing and replacing the poles, God did not want them to inadvertently touch the Ark and be killed, so He gave the order for the safety of the people that the poles are not to be removed.  Obey God’s instructions that would save you from calamity! DISOBEDIENCE BRINGS DISASTER!


King David desired to bring the Ark of God from Egypt, hence with great joy the Israelites carried the Ark of God in a new cart, while Uzza and Ahio drove the cart. Midway at a particular point when the oxen stumbled, Uzza stretched his hands to hold the Ark, the anger of God came upon Uzza because he carelessly touched the Ark and he was killed immediately. Please understand the God you serve and get to know His commandments! Are you listening? This is a ‘must read’ message for all of you! Don’t miss! David’s mistakes cost him the precious life of Uzza!
Follow rules and live safely!
