Numbers 25:11
“Pinchas the son of El‘azar, the son of Aharon the cohen, has deflected my anger from the people of Isra’el by being as zealous as I am, so that I didn’t destroy them in my own zeal.

Mark 7:36
Yeshua ordered the people to tell no one; but the more he insisted, the more zealously they spread the news.

Galatians 4:17
True, these teachers are zealous for you, but their motives are not good. They want to separate you from us so that you will become zealous for them.

Galatians 4:18
To be zealous is good, provided always that the cause is good. Indeed, whether I am present with you or not,

As you can see from the verses above. To be zealous is both good and bad. As you see with Pinchas back in numbers he was zealous for Yahweh and stopped Yahweh from destroying the people of Israel in his anger. But, if you look at the teachers in Galatians they were too zealous and made it about themselves. So be careful when being too zealous. Make sure you stay on the right path with your zealousness.

Matthew 1:21
She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yeshua, [which means ‘Yahweh saves,’] because he will save his people from their sins.”

Matthew 4:4
But he answered, “The Tanakh says, ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of Yahweh’”

Thanks for reading today ya'll. Check out  one of my favorite Mason Clover songs below.

Ephesians 4:1-3

Therefore I, the prisoner united with the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called. Always be humble, gentle and patient, bearing with one another in love, and making every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit gives through the binding power of shalom.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in Yahweh with all your heart; do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him; then he will level your paths.

2 Kings 18:5
He put his trust in Adonai the God of Isra’el; after him there was no one like him among all the kings of Y’hudah, nor had there been among those before him.

When you don't move the mountains
I'm needing you to move
When you don't part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When you don't give the answers 
As I cry out to you
I will trust 
I will trust 
I will trust in you

I absolutely love the song Trust In You by Lauren Daigle. It has impacted my life in so many ways. I am currently working on shooting a live video for my cover of this song. Which I hope to be posting on here soon. Trust is something that is not easily earned. But, once it is earned, it is wonderful. Although, it is also easily destroyed.
Thanks for reading today ya'll! Shabbat Shalom!

Philippians 4:13
13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Isaiah 40:29
He invigorates the exhausted, he gives strength to the powerless.

Exodus 15:2
Yah is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. This is my God: I will glorify him; my father’s God: I will exalt him.

Exodus 15:13
In your love, you led the people you redeemed; in your strength, you guided them to your holy abode.

Numbers 24:8
God, who brought them out of Egypt, gives them thestrength of a wild ox. They will devour the nations opposing them, break their bones, pierce them with their arrows.

Deuteronomy 33:25
May your bolts be of iron and bronze and your strength last as long as you live.

I like many of you grew up hearing the line I can do things thru Christ who strengthens me. And, many time I just shrugged it off and didn't believe it. I just thought it was something my mom said because she could. It wasn't until my mom got really sick that I started believing it. It wasn't until I had to run the whole house by myself during the day that I realized that I needed his strength to get me through the day. Even, though she is much better now and I don't need to it by myself anymore I still find myself using this line every day. Even, though I has less on my plate each day I still need his strength to get through my day.

Thanks for reading today ya'll. Listen to the song below.

Acts 2:38
Kefa answered them, “Turn from sin, return to God, and each of you be immersed on the authority of Yeshua the Messiah into forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Ruach HaKodesh!

Isaiah 1:27
Tziyon will be redeemed by justice; and those in her who repent, by righteousness.

Jeremiah 31:18
Yes, I turned away; but later I repented. When I had been made to understand, I struck my thigh in shame and remorse, bearing the weight of the disgrace acquired when I was young.’

Jeremiah 34:15
Now you repented, you did what is right from my viewpoint when each of you proclaimed freedom to his fellow; and you made a covenant before me in the house bearing my name.

Ezekiel 18:21
“However, if the wicked person repents of all the sins he committed, keeps my laws and does what is lawful and right; then he will certainly live, he will not die.

Repent means to turn with sorrow from a past course of action. To turn away from sin and follow Yahweh. But, that not all it means. There is a deeper meaning to the word repent. To truly repent means to turn wholeheartedly to Yah and continue to continue to try to get closer to him. At least, that what it means to me.

Thanks for reading today ya'll.

Exodus 16:13
That evening, quails came up and covered the camp; while in the morning there was a layer of dew all around the camp.

Numbers 11:31
and Adonai sent out a wind which brought quails from across the sea and let them fall near the camp, about a day’s trip away on each side of the camp and all around it, covering the ground to a depth of three feet.

Numbers 11:32
The people stayed up all that day, all night and all the next day gathering the quails — the person gathering the least collected ten heaps; then they spread them out for themselves all around the camp.

Psalm 105:40
When they asked, he brought them quails and satisfied them with food from heaven.

Ok, so it turns out that Q is a very hard letter to find something for when you're doing Bible verses. So, after a long and hard search of things that start with Q that you might find in the Bible. I decided on Quail. Well, I don't have to say about quail. Just that they are delicious or so I've been told.

Psalm 150
Halleluyah! Praise God in his holy place! Praise him in the heavenly dome of his power! Praise him for his mighty deeds! Praise him for his surpassing greatness! Praise him with a blast on the shofar! Praise him with lute and lyre! ...

Deuteronomy 10:21
He is your praise, and he is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things, which you have seen with your own eyes.

Judges 5:3
Hear, kings; listen, princes; I will sing to Adonai! I will sing praise to Adonai the God of Isra’el.

2 Samuel 22:50
“So I give thanks to you, Adonai, among the nations; I sing praises to your name.

Psalm 9:15
so that I can proclaim all your praises at the gates of the daughter of Tziyon and rejoice in this deliverance of yours.”

Praising Yahweh is one of my favorite things to do. Through my singing, dancing, and spreading his word. I have been to three Christian concerts so far with some of the biggest names in Christian music. And, every one of them were filled with amazing praise and worship. I was amazed the first time I went to Winter Jam(one of the biggest Christian concert tour in the country) at how much the artists really got into their praise. 

Thanks for reading today ya'll. Check out the video below. This is one of my favorite songs to dance to.

Genesis 22:18
and by your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed — because you obeyed my order.”

Exodus 20:6
but displaying grace to the thousandth generation of those who love me and obey my mitzvot.

Exodus 24:7
Moshe came and told the people everything Adonai had said, including all the rulings. The people answered with one voice: “We will obey every word Adonai has spoken.”
Leviticus 18:4
You are to obey my rulings and laws and live accordingly; I am Adonai your God

Exodus 20:12
12 “Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land which Adonai your God is giving you.

Obeying is sometimes a hard thing to do. Now, that I am a teenager I am finding that there are a lot of things in this world that try to get me to disobey my parents. And, in turn disobey Yahweh.

Exodus 3:14
God said to Moshe, “Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh [I am/will be what I am/will be],” and added, “Here is what to say to the people of Isra’el: ‘Ehyeh [I Am or I Will Be] has sent me to you.’”

Exodus 1:1
These are the names of the sons of Isra’el who came into Egypt with Ya‘akov; each man came with his household:

Exodus 28:29
Aharon will carry the names of the sons of Isra’el on the breastplate for judging, over his heart, when he enters the Holy Place, as a continual reminder before Adonai.

Zechariah 13:2
“When that day comes,” says Adonai-Tzva’ot, “I will cut off the very names of the idols from the land, so that no one even remembers them any more. I will also expel the [false] prophets and the spirit of uncleanness from the land;

Names! Names are all throughout the Bible. From the very beginning to the very end. From the first five books to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. It is even the name of one of the books. Sh'mot or Exodus means names in Hebrew. Names are very important to Yahweh and his Torah. As you can see in the first verse Yahweh even told Moshe the name to call him by. 

Thanks for reading today ya'll. See you Monday with the letter O.

John 4:25
The woman replied, “I know that Messiah is coming” (that is, “the one who has been anointed”). “When he comes, he will tell us everything.”

Mark 9:41
Indeed, whoever gives you even a cup of water to drink because you come in the name of the Messiah — yes! I tell you that he will certainly not lose his reward.

John 17:3 And eternal life is this: to know you, the one true God, and him whom you sent, Yeshua the Messiah.
John 1:17
For the Torah was given through Moshe; grace and truth came through Yeshua the Messiah.

Well we have made it half way through the A-Z Challenge. M is the thirteenth letter of the alphabet. It has been fun so far and I look forward to the rest of the challenge. 

Yeshua the Messiah the healer, the redeemer, the son of God. Yahweh left all of his glory behind to come to earth and die for us. To take away all of our sins. To heal us and to redeem us. To make us his once again.

1st Corinthians 13:1-4
13 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

2 If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.

3-4 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
As I said yesterday I am going to be talking about my singing and dancing today. I hope soon to start posting some of my originals and covers on facebook for my friends and family to hear. I have been working on my singing voice for many years and I thought I had it all figured out. Until, I went to Winter Jam back in March. When, I saw how much the artists really got into the songs and poured their hearts out for the lord. I realized that there was something that was missing from my music. I realized that I was it for myself, not for Yahweh and his kingdom. It wasn't until I heard the song The Proof Of Your Love by for King & Country that I realized that what I need to add to my music was love. Love for Yahweh. Love for his kingdom. And, love for the life he has given me. Since hearing this song live I have way more passion for my music and my dancing. I loved dancing before, but I was doing for the show of it. And, one day during one of the songs I realized that my heart wasn't in it. I knew that I wasn't doing it for the right reasons, but I didn't know how to fix it. So, I went on trying to dance, but it was so hard to get into the songs. After, hearing this song I knew what I had to do. And, since then I have been so much happier. My dancing is now for him and everything he is doing through me and for me.
Thanks for reading today ya'll. I hope you learn something from this post, because I know I have. Listen to The Proof Of Your Love below complete with the verse from above.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Psalm 45:7 
Your throne, God, will last forever and ever; you rule your kingdom with a scepter of equity.

Psalm 68:33
Sing to God, kingdoms of the earth! Sing praises to Adonai, (Selah)

Daniel 2:44
“In the days of those kings the God of heaven will establish a kingdom that will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not pass into the hands of another people. It will break to pieces and consume all those kingdoms; but it, itself, will stand forever 

Matthew 12:28
But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God has come upon you!

The Kingdom of Yahweh is one of the most things for me. I am an aspiring singer, so singing to my congregation is one of my favorite things to do. To reach out to the kingdom of Yah and give them hope in their darkest times. I am also a dancer and dancing for my God and his kingdom is amazing feeling. I will be speaking more on my singing and dancing tomorrow.

Thanks for reading ya'll. See you tomorrow with L. Watch the video below.

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Isaiah 24:8
the happy sound of tambourines ceases, the shouts of merrymakers are stilled, the joy of the lyre ends.

Isaiah 24:14
They lift their voices, singing for joy, shouting from the west to honor Adonai

Isaiah 25:9
On that day they will say, “See! This is our God! We waited for him to save us. This is Adonai ; we put our hope in him. We are full of joy, so glad he saved us!”

Isaiah 35:10
Those ransomed by Adonai will return and come with singing to Tziyon, on their heads will be everlasting joy. They will acquire gladness and joy, while sorrow and sighing will flee.

Luke 1:37
For with God, nothing is impossible.

Matthew 17:20
He said to them, “Because you have such little trust! Yes! I tell you that if you have trust as tiny as a mustard seed, you will be able to say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there!’ and it will move; indeed, nothing will be impossible for you!”

Matthew 19:26
Yeshua looked at them and said, “Humanly, this is impossible; but with God everything is possible.”

Hebrews 11:6
And without trusting, it is impossible to be well pleasing to God, because whoever approaches him must trust that he does exist and that he becomes a rewarder to those who seek him out.

I is for impossible. And, honestly I don't think that I really have to talk much on this subject. I think that the video below will explain it all. This is one of my new favorite songs by Sidewalk Prophets. I was lucky enough to see them live at Winter Jam sitting front row.
Thanks for reading guys.

Exodus 20:12
12 “Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land which Adonai your God is giving you.

Ephesians 6:2-3
2 “Honor your father and mother” — this is the first commandment that embodies a promise — 3 “so that it may go well with you, and you may live long in the Land.”

Isaiah 9:14
The old and the honored are the head, while prophets teaching lies are the tail.
Judges 9:9
But the olive tree replied, ‘Am I supposed to leave my oil, which is used to honor both God and humanity, just to go and hold sway over the trees?’
Judges 13:17
Manoach said to the angel of Adonai, “Tell us your name, so that when your words come true we can honor you.”
Honor is one of the most universal moral there is. At least every culture has one version of a honor and shame society. That's right even third world countries have this moral. Honor and shame are an important thing to every culture. I heard a wonderful teaching at a church conference last summer. The teacher was talking about an honor and shame society in the bible. In the bible people who dishonored and shamed often couldn't go back their old lives. They often couldn't face their own families. You can still see this today in Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim countries. Often they only the way they can restore their honor is through death. 

Thanks for reading with me today ya'll. Shabbat Shalom!

Ephesians 2:8-9
For you have been delivered by grace through trusting, and even this is not your accomplishment but God’s gift. You were not delivered by your own actions; therefore no one should boast.

Isaiah 54:8
I was angry for a moment and hid my face from you; but with everlasting grace I will have compassion on you,” says Adonai your Redeemer.

Isaiah 54:10
For the mountains may leave and the hills be removed, but my grace will never leave you, and my covenant of peace will not be removed,” says Adonai, who has compassion on you.

This post is inspired by the song Grace Wins by Matthew West. One of my all time favorite Matthew West songs. I had the pleasure of hearing this live at Winter Jam in March. I was amazing to sit front row and have him sing this song directly to me and my family and friends. Words can't describe the way this song makes me feel. It really hits home for me. 
Below are some of the lyrics and the lyric video for Grace Wins. 

Thanks for reading today ya'll. See you tomorrow with H.

There's a war between guilt and grace
And they're fighting for a sacred space
But I'm living proof
Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death's defeat
Now I'm rising up in victory
Singing, hallelujah
Grace wins every time

James 1:6
6 But let him ask in trust, doubting nothing; for the doubter is like a wave in the sea being tossed and driven by the wind.

1 Corinthians 13:2
2 I may have the gift of prophecy, I may fathom all mysteries, know all things, have all faith — enough to move mountains; but if I lack love, I am nothing.

Matthew 17:20
20 He said to them, “Because you have such little trust! Yes! I tell you that if you have trust as tiny as a mustard seed, you will be able to say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there!’ and it will move; indeed, nothing will be impossible for you!”

1 Corinthians 13:13
13 But for now, three things last — trust, hope, love; and the greatest of these is love.

Faith is a "NERB". Faith isn't a noun or a verb it's both. Faith without works is dead and works without faith is nothing. Yahweh want us to have faith with works and works with faith. Have faith in a NERB sense, not a noun or a verb sense.

Thanks for reading today ya'll! See ya tomorrow. Until then, watch the video.

Exodus 12:1-10
12 Adonai spoke to Moshe and Aharon in the land of Egypt; he said,2 “You are to begin your calendar with this month; it will be the first month of the year for you. 3 Speak to all the assembly of Isra’el and say, ‘On the tenth day of this month, each man is to take a lamb or kid for his family, one per household — 4 except that if the household is too small for a whole lamb or kid, then he and his next-door neighbor should share one, dividing it in proportion to the number of people eating it.5 Your animal must be without defect, a male in its first year, and you may choose it from either the sheep or the goats.

6 “‘You are to keep it until the fourteenth day of the month, and then the entire assembly of the community of Isra’el will slaughter it at dusk.7 They are to take some of the blood and smear it on the two sides and top of the door-frame at the entrance of the house in which they eat it.8 That night, they are to eat the meat, roasted in the fire; they are to eat it with matzah and maror. 9 Don’t eat it raw or boiled, but roasted in the fire, with its head, the lower parts of its legs and its inner organs. 10 Let nothing of it remain till morning; if any of it does remain, burn it up completely.

Exodus 12:29-36
29 At midnight Adonai killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh sitting on his throne to the firstborn of the prisoner in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock. 30 Pharaoh got up in the night, he, all his servants and all the Egyptians; and there was horrendous wailing in Egypt; for there wasn’t a single house without someone dead in it. 31 He summoned Moshe and Aharon by night and said, “Up and leave my people, both you and the people of Isra’el; and go, serve Adonai as you said. 32 Take both your flocks and your herds, as you said; and get out of here! But bless me, too.” 33 The Egyptians pressed to send the people out of the land quickly, because they said, “Otherwise we’ll all be dead!”
34 The people took their dough before it had become leavened and wrapped their kneading bowls in their clothes on their shoulders. 35 The people of Isra’el had done what Moshe had said — they had asked the Egyptians to give them silver and gold jewelry and clothing; 36 and Adonai had made the Egyptians so favorably disposed toward the people that they had let them have whatever they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.

Alright today we are going to talk about the Israelites leaving Egypt (the exodus). We've all read the story of the Exodus. About how Yahweh lead the Israelites out of slavery.  But, today I'm going to talk about something much greater than the Israelites. Today, I'm going to talk about the greatest Exodus, Yeshua dying for us on the cross. You can see he's there all through out the Exodus story. If you read verse 7 you can see that they are talking about blood saving the first born of the people. And, Yeshua was Yahweh's firstborn and it was by his blood that we are saved. 

Thanks for reading Ya'll. See you tomorrow.

Matthew 12:22
22 Then some people brought him a man controlled by demons who was blind and mute; and Yeshua healed him, so that he could both speak and see.

Luke 11:14
14 He was expelling a demon that was mute. When the demon had gone out, the man who had been mute spoke; and the people were astounded.

1st Peter 5:8
8 Stay sober, stay alert! Your enemy, the Adversary, stalks about like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

2nd Peter 2:4
4 For God did not spare the angels who sinned; on the contrary, he put them in gloomy dungeons lower than Sh’ol to be held for judgment.

Ok, lets talk about demons and how to avoid them. Have you ever seen someone that was possessed by demons? I know I have and it was pretty terrifying. How can you keep from getting in this type of a situation yourself? One way is to avoid anyone who is a bad influence or is possessed by demons. And, another way is to keep yourself on the right path toward Yahweh. But, how do you know if you are on the right path? If you ever doubt that what you are hearing or doing might not be right consult the bible. Everything you need to know is right there in the Torah. 

Thanks for reading with me today. I'll see ya'll tomorrow with the letter E.

Cain And Able

Genesis 4:3-16
3 In the course of time Kayin brought an offering to Adonai from the produce of the soil; 4 and Hevel too brought from the firstborn of his sheep, including their fat. Adonai accepted Hevel and his offering 5 but did not accept Kayin and his offering. Kayin was very angry, and his face fell. 6 Adonai said to Kayin, “Why are you angry? Why so downcast? 7 If you are doing what is good, shouldn’t you hold your head high? And if you don’t do what is good, sin is crouching at the door — it wants you, but you can rule over it.” 8 Kayin had words with Hevel his brother; then one time, when they were in the field, Kayin turned on Hevel his brother and killed him.

9 Adonai said to Kayin, “Where is Hevel your brother?” And he replied, “I don’t know; am I my brother’s guardian?” 10 He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground! 11 Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood at your hands. 12 When you farm the ground it will no longer yield its strength to you. You will be a fugitive, wandering the earth.” 13 Kayin said to Adonai, “My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14 You are banning me today from the land and from your presence. I will be a fugitive wandering the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.” 15 Adonai answered him, “Therefore, whoever kills Kayin will receive vengeance sevenfold,” and Adonai put a sign on Kayin, so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Kayin left the presence of Adonai and lived in the land of Nod [wandering], east of ‘Eden.

Everyone knows the story of Cain and Able. The story of the first murder. But, not everyone knows the reason behind the first murder. If you just read the verses above you think that he just gave the wrong sacrifice to Yahweh. But, is that the only reason Yahweh didn't accept Cain's offering. NO!
The reason he didn't accept Cain's offering is because, Cain only did it to make himself look good. He did it to glorify himself instead of Yahweh. That is why he didn't accept the offering. 

Thanks for reading with me today. Come back tomorrow for letter D.

By His Blood We Are Saved

As the title says today we are going to be talking about some verses about how we are saved through the blood of Yeshua the Messiah.
Revelation 5:9-10
9 and they sang a new song,
“You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals;
because you were slaughtered;
at the cost of blood you ransomed for God
persons from every tribe, language, people and nation.
10 You made them into a kingdom for God to rule,
cohanim to serve him;
and they will rule over the earth.”

1st Corinthians 11:25
 likewise also the cup after the meal, saying, “This cup is the New Covenant effected by my blood; do this, as often as you drink it, as a memorial to me.”
1st Corinthians 10:16
The “cup of blessing” over which we make the b’rakhah — isn’t it a sharing in the bloody sacrificial death of the Messiah? The bread we break, isn’t it a sharing in the body of the Messiah?

These are all wonderful verses about how Yeshua died for us. How he nailed all of our sins to the cross. I long to see the day when he returns to take us home. I often wondered what we did to deserve such a love. What we did to deserve Yahweh himself coming to earth to die for us. 

That's all I have to say for today.  I'll see Ya'll Monday with the letter C.
Until, then comment below with what you think about this topic.
Shabbat Shalom!

Ark of the Covenant

Hey ya'll for this year's a-z challenge I will be doing Bible verses for each letter. So here we go with the first letter A.

Ark of the Covenant
Exodus 25:10-22
10 “They are to make an ark of acacia-wood three-and-three-quarters feet long, two-and-a-quarter feet wide and two-and-a-quarter feet high.11 You are to overlay it with pure gold — overlay it both inside and outside — and put a molding of gold around the top of it. 12 Cast four gold rings for it, and attach them to its four feet, two rings on each side. 13 Make poles of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold. 14 Put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark; you will use them to carry the ark. 15 The poles are to remain in the rings of the ark; they are not to be removed from it. 16 Into the ark you are to put the testimony which I am about to give you.
17 “You are to make a cover for the ark out of pure gold; it is to be three-and-three-quarters feet long and two-and-a-quarter feet high.18 You are to make two k’ruvim of gold. Make them of hammered work for the two ends of the ark-cover. 19 Make one keruv for one end and one keruv for the other end; make the k’ruvim of one piece with the ark-cover at its two ends. 20 The k’ruvim will have their wings spread out above, so that their wings cover the ark, and their faces are toward each other and toward the ark-cover. 21 You are to put the ark-cover on top of the ark.
“Inside the ark you will put the testimony that I am about to give you. 22 There I will meet with you. I will speak with you from above the ark-cover, from between the two k’ruvim which are on the ark for the testimony, about all the orders I am giving you for the people of Isra’el.

Ok, now that you have read the verses about the making of the Ark, lets talk some more about it.
Placed inside the Ark were: a jar of manna, the tablets of the covenant (10 commandments), and Aharon's staff. Now, the Ark was very important to Yahweh and the children of Israel. But, why?
Well, think about it. The Ark was where Yahweh sat to be in the presence of his people, his children. I would think that would be very important to him. Ok, so no one was aloud to touch the Ark directly or else they would die. Not, even the High Priest could touch it or carry it. The only ones allowed to carry it were the Levites themselves. And, they had to use the poles that were attached to it. They could NOT touch the Ark itself.  
Alright enough on what I have to say about it, I want to see what you have to say.
