Exodus 25:13 “And you shall make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. You shall put the poles into rings on the sides of the ark, that the ark may be carried by them. The poles shall be in the rings of the ark; they shall not be…”
The ‘Ark’ of the Presence of God was made to be mobile. God is never represented by a monument. He is a movement! God is always moving – He is not static. Religion gets stuck in what was. We need to keep moving towards what is to come.
The nomad wondering generation possesed the promosed land. Those who could change quickly who could uproot & move on reguarly. The Presence of God is carried on the shoulders of people. When God moves through people, it’s not because of what they are doing, it’s because of who they are!
People are they policy, not a handbook! It’s not the systems, it’s the people that make church work.
