  1. Oh Carol, this is a great post, will certainly check my life and try to make changes… for we all human and when God is silent it could either be that He (GOD) approves or that He disapproves.thanks for the post.Godbless you

  2. Hi Carol, I agree with you except for one thing. God was not silent about how the ark could be moved. He was very explicit in Exodus about how the ark was to be transported. They clearly went against what God said they were to do, in that instance. The fact that it had been generations, and that they may have been ignorant to the requirements, unfortunately, was not enough to “save” them. Ignorance does not make it ok to go out on our own and do what we think is best. Blessings to you! (Like I said, I do agree with what you said, overall, though.)

  3. Shalene,That may be true but I wasn’t speaking of the Exodus account. If you read the post again, you’ll see that I referenced 1 Chron. 13:9-109 When they came to the threshing floor of Kidon, Uzzah reached out his hand to steady the ark, because the oxen stumbled. 10 The LORD’s anger burned against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he had put his hand on the ark. So he died there before God.God did not give instruction for him to steady the ark and His anger burned against him for that. Blessings 🙂

  4. Amen!I am also reminded that Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu were killed by the LORD’s fire because they decided to do something that which God did not command them to do.

  6. <>God was silent regarding moving the ark on a cart and a person touching it to keep it from falling off the cart (1 Ch. 13:9-10). When Uzzah touched the ark, he transgressed God’s command (silence) and was punished.<>Perhaps Uzzah thought his hands were “cleaner” than the dirt the ark would have fallen on? think about it, eh?Blessings Carol! 🙂
