Moving the ark of God the LORD, cactus flower

2 Samuel 5:1-3; 1 Chronicles 11:1-3; 1 Chronicles 12:23-40; 2 Samuel 5:17-25; 1 Chronicles 14:8-17; 2 Samuel 5:6-10; 1 Chronicles 11:4-9; 1 Chronicles 3:4; 2 Samuel 5:13; 2 Samuel 5:4-5; 2 Samuel 5:11-12; 1 Chronicles 14:1-2; 1 Chronicles 13:1-5; 2 Samuel 6:1-11; 1 Chronicles 13:6-14 (New King James Version)

Wow, will ya look at that reading list!  I love reading the Bible chronologically.  It gives passages that are at the same time.  I used to read the Bible and think, "I've read this before," and go on, but never really thought much more on it.  Then when I started reading it this way, walla!  I really had read it before.  God's Word is written by man, at His inspiration, and He must have thought we needed to read it more than once, otherwise, it wouldn't be in there more than once.  Yah, I know none of us never need to hear things more than once to "get it" huh.  HAHA.  We are all a bunch of dumb sheep needing a Shepherd to lead us to safety because if we get away from the flock, we are in BIG trouble.

David Reigns over All Israel
David’s Army at Hebron
The Philistines Defeated
The Conquest of Jerusalem
The City of David
David Established at Jerusalem
The Ark Brought from Kirjath Jearim
The ark which is God the LORD is being moved to Jerusalem on a cart managed by Ahio and Uzza, from the house of Abinadab.  The oxen stumble and Uzza touches the ark (God had directed that the ark never be touched).  God kills him on the spot.  They leave the ark there at Obed-Edom's house.  God blesses Obed-Edom.  I guess they figured there that the ark was always to be carried with poles and not be on a cart.

Isn't this beautiful?
