Ladies and Gentlemen, do you remember how our LORD took personal actions against those self-centered politicians of His time? JESUS took a STAND FOR the Rightful use of the Holy Temple to WORSHIP ALMIGHTY GOD and not to buy, sell nor trade anything for His GRACE, His FAVOR, His Provision!

In todays’ language we might say: We have come to DRAIN the SWAMP that is abounding in Washington - District of Columbia with ALL the corrupt, underhanded, twisted evil actions by a few men & women (536 to be exact) who do NOT care one iota about We the People of these United States of America. We have had ENOUGH and we DEMAND these EVIL doers be cast out of all government offices and abolish this current form of government that is NOT working.

Jesus Clears the Temple

(Matthew 21:12–17; Mark 11:15–19; Luke 19:45–48 )

It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration, so Jesus went to Jerusalem. In the Temple area He saw merchants selling cattle, sheep, and doves for sacrifices; He also saw dealers at tables exchanging foreign money.

Jesus made a whip from some leather ropes and chased them all out of the Temple. He drove out the sheep and cattle, scattered the money changers’ coins over the floor, and turned over their tables. Then, going over to the people who sold doves, He told them,

Get these things out of here. Stop turning my Father’s House into a marketplace!

Then his Disciples remembered this prophecy from the Scriptures:

Passion for God’s house will consume me.  LINK = Psalm 69:9

But the Jewish leaders demanded, “What are you doing? If God gave you authority to do this, show us a miraculous sign to prove it.”

All right, Jesus replied. Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

“What!” they exclaimed. “It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple, and you can rebuild it in three days?”

But when Jesus said “this Temple,” He meant His own Body.

After He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered He had said this, and they believed both the Scriptures and what Jesus had said.

Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in Him.

But Jesus didn’t trust them, because He knew human nature.

No one needed to tell Him what mankind is really like.

Bible LINK = John 2:13-25


Dear ones, The Holy Spirit of the Living GOD-JEHOVAH actually TRUSTS us!

Our BODY is the Temple for the Holy Spirit to DWELL IN!  Imagine JESUS inside of us and we are permanently LINKED to Him!  AS IT IS WRITTEN in 1Corinthians 6:12-20

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!

Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.”

But he who is joined to the Lord is ONE SPIRIT with Him.

Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

Or do you not know that your Body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore Glorify & Honor God in your Body and in your Spirit, which are God’s

Make it SO Dear LORD, make it SO!
