Money Changers

Jhn 2:15 And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables;

Mat 21:12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.

Twice Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple.  They weren’t accurately representing His Father.  They were capitalizing on the ignorance of the attenders.  They were opportunists … not servants.

Sound familiar?

Soon, Jesus will once again deal harshly with the money changers.  But this time it will be in all the so called “temples” simultaneously.  Rather than drive the money changers out, this time Jesus will leave them in their self-made temples … with nowhere to run to.

Rather than making a scourge of cords and overturning the tables and driving them out, He will leave them there … while He pulls out all those who are known by His Father. 

The onlookers who remain will then have a clearer view of the wolves and begin to reject their nonsense.  In mass, the left behind will be in a position to humbly return home to the Father.  A Father who eagerly awaits them with the robe, and the ring, and the fatted calf.  For the first time since the cross, His children will be united under His leadership.  She will be invincible.  Because of the difficulty of her task at hand, she will need to be invincible.

Perhaps even some of the money changers will repent?

Nothing is impossible for our Father, the Father of grace.

Rev 3:9 ‘Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down at your feet,  and make them know that I have loved you.

To God be the glory.
