Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
1 Samuel 6:7 (c) This is a type of man's schemes for doing GOD's work. GOD had said that the priests were to carry the ark on their shoulders. The Philistines substituted a cart for the ark. GOD had not told them how to carry it. GOD was displeased and trouble came. GOD's work must be done in GOD's way. If the right thing is done in the wrong manner, GOD will not accept it. GOD demands that His service shall be carried on according to His plan and program. We must not substitute the ways of the world for the ways of GOD. In raising money for the church, or in providing amusements for the young, or in carrying on our services, or in our method and manner of using the house of GOD, we must not resort to the ways of the ungodly, the plans and programs of those who are strangers to GOD, for GOD will not add His blessing to it. See2Sa 6:7 and compare with1Ch 15:13.
Isaiah 28:27 (b) This passage teaches that our Christian work is not all to be done by one pattern. Each type of person must be dealt with in a different manner. The cart wheel worked on some grain but not on others.
Amos 2:13 (a) GOD compares Himself to a cart on which a great load (a volume of blessings for His people) has been placed. They did not want GOD nor His blessings.
