Don't mess with the Ark

Tumors and Rats!!!! O my O my!!!

Not only does it bring devastation on the Philistines but also on our good-old buddy Eli who literally keels over and dies. The Ark was a powerful force to be reckoned with. No wonder why back in the 1920's Hitler was so interested in finding the Ark (side note) when Hitler was found dead he had the Spear of Longinus, which is supposedly the spear that pierced Jesus side. One of the reasons why Hitler defeated Austria was so that he could obtain that Spear which was in the Hapsburg Museum. It was believed that one of the Caesars and Napoleon had possession of this same spear as well (reference: Psalms, the Journey Continues by Mark E. Correll, Mark, E Correll). They all thought the spear would bring them power. I'm sure the Philistines thought the same thing when they took position of the Ark; little did they know that the power of God only works when you have a relationship with Him. Isn't that still true to this day?

Yup, we need to have a relationship with God to receive his Power/Spirit. Kinda of like the Bible is a book on the shelf unless we read it and live by it.
