1 When the ark of the Lord had been in Philistine territory seven months,

Can you imagine? We have just begun the 3rd week of Biden’s administration and already there are states refusing to comply to his orders, people testifying to congress that they are unwilling to comply, and many of those that were gung ho for Biden are horrified at what he has done. Unions supported him only to see him lie and eliminate tens of thousands of jobs. The US Women’s soccer team, so dominant for so many years, was very vocal in their support for Biden and on the first day he destroys women’s sports. The NBA so outraged at the violence they perceived from cops towards people of color will now have to own 100% increases in homicides in these cities. Can you imagine what this country will be like after 7 months?

2 the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners and said, “What shall we do with the ark of the Lord? Tell us how we should send it back to its place.”

That is the problem, it would take a miracle to fix the problems they have created.

3 They answered, “If you return the ark of the god of Israel, do not send it back to him without a gift; by all means send a guilt offering to him. Then you will be healed, and you will know why his hand has not been lifted from you.”

CNN reported a 44% drop in their ratings, I expect in the next few days we’ll see the same thing with Twitter. Over the next 7 months I expect God’s hand will be heavy against Google, Apple, Amazon.com, all the companies that bowed to the will of cancel culture to get rid of Mike Lindell, etc.

4 The Philistines asked, “What guilt offering should we send to him?” They replied, “Five gold tumors and five gold rats, according to the number of the Philistine rulers, because the same plague has struck both you and your rulers. 5 Make models of the tumors and of the rats that are destroying the country, and give glory to Israel’s god. Perhaps he will lift his hand from you and your gods and your land. 6 Why do you harden your hearts as the Egyptians and Pharaoh did? When Israel’s god dealt harshly with them, did they not send the Israelites out so they could go on their way?

You have to pay the price. There will be lawsuits and criminal cases. We have this malignant censorship which must be dealt with and we have this election fraud which must be dealt with.

7 “Now then, get a new cart ready, with two cows that have calved and have never been yoked. Hitch the cows to the cart, but take their calves away and pen them up. 8 Take the ark of the Lord and put it on the cart, and in a chest beside it put the gold objects you are sending back to him as a guilt offering. Send it on its way, 9 but keep watching it. If it goes up to its own territory, toward Beth Shemesh, then the Lord has brought this great disaster on us. But if it does not, then we will know that it was not his hand that struck us but that it happened to us by chance.”

It must be difficult to live in a world where you are so foggy on sin. There was an article published about the secret way in which the companies all worked together to make sure Biden won. It reminds me of this scene in “The Big Short” where one of the heroes asks his partners “why are they confessing” because they were so stupid that they were boasting about doing things that were criminal.

10 So they did this. They took two such cows and hitched them to the cart and penned up their calves. 11 They placed the ark of the Lord on the cart and along with it the chest containing the gold rats and the models of the tumors. 12 Then the cows went straight up toward Beth Shemesh, keeping on the road and lowing all the way; they did not turn to the right or to the left. The rulers of the Philistines followed them as far as the border of Beth Shemesh. 13 Now the people of Beth Shemesh were harvesting their wheat in the valley, and when they looked up and saw the ark, they rejoiced at the sight.

The wheat harvest is typically done around Pentecost which is also known as the feast of harvest. In 2021 it is May 23. That is slightly more than 7 months after the Nov 3 election.

14 The cart came to the field of Joshua of Beth Shemesh, and there it stopped beside a large rock. The people chopped up the wood of the cart and sacrificed the cows as a burnt offering to the Lord. 15 The Levites took down the ark of the Lord, together with the chest containing the gold objects, and placed them on the large rock. On that day the people of Beth Shemesh offered burnt offerings and made sacrifices to the Lord. 16 The five rulers of the Philistines saw all this and then returned that same day to Ekron.

Today we have 5 rulers of 5 tech giants: Amazon.com, Google, Apple, Twitter, and AT&T.

17 These are the gold tumors the Philistines sent as a guilt offering to the Lord—one each for Ashdod, Gaza, Ashkelon, Gath and Ekron. 18 And the number of the gold rats was according to the number of Philistine towns belonging to the five rulers—the fortified towns with their country villages. The large rock on which the Levites set the ark of the Lord is a witness to this day in the field of Joshua of Beth Shemesh.

The rats were for the towns that belong to them. This election fraud was primarily committed in the large cities controlled by the Democrats: Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Phoenix.

19 But God struck down some of the inhabitants of Beth Shemesh, putting seventy[a] of them to death because they looked into the ark of the Lord. The people mourned because of the heavy blow the Lord had dealt them. 20 And the people of Beth Shemesh asked, “Who can stand in the presence of the Lord, this holy God? To whom will the ark go up from here?” 21 Then they sent messengers to the people of Kiriath Jearim, saying, “The Philistines have returned the ark of the Lord. Come down and take it up to your town.”

What was the issue all about? They didn't treat God's testimony with respect. Eli and his sons were judged for their disrespect to God's word and His commands. So how can these 70 be so careless? The Lord allowed 30,000 to die in the first battle. When you come to the Lord's testimony you need to be careful.
