Jesus said, Temple in Jerusalem is House of Prayer for all nations on pilgrimage to Worship Yahweh. Zephaniah 14:16-17 says, all nations
must come to Jerusalem to Worship
KING of Kings and LORD of Lords
RULER of earth. Remnant survivors from nations after Armageddon go to pray in Jerusalem to Worship LORD
of hosts or there will be no rain
for nations that refuse to do so. This will result in droughts and famines after Jesus’ RETURN to live in Jerusalem Physically in the flesh as a Divine Being seen by all people in the world. All the nations worship God in Jerusalem after Armageddon according to God’s words in the Bible. This significant statement Jesus made is overshadowed by Jesus’ action of whipping traders in Temple for duping worshippers. Jesus entered temple area driving out those buying and selling animals at unfair prices. He overturned tables of money changers and benches of those selling doves so did not allow them to sell merchandise in the temple courts. Jesus taught them and said, “Is it not written: ‘My HOUSE will be called a HOUSE of Prayer for All Nations but you made it den of robbers’ says Mark 11:15-17.
Jesus Gentle, Meek and Mild reveals His anger unseen before in that manner in Temple. Jesus Christ is compassionate, kind, heals, feeds, forgives people, calms sea, teaches word of God, prophesied. It surprised people who followed Jesus in crowds seeing Him in a different Light. This incident stands out today as Jesus’ anger out of character in the Temple in Jerusalem still affects Worship of God in some places today. Temple is important place for pilgrims all over the world for worship, festivals, other celebrations so required to sacrifice animals like dove, goat or lamb. Pilgrims from different places had different currencies used to buy from merchants who sold animals. Money changers charged large amounts to convert currency so took advantage of people who bought animals. So the system designed for profit did not help promote true worship of Yahweh. The money changers hindered God worship so Jesus’ anger was unleashed on them. God’s anger and wrath is unleashed on all who prevent GOD WORSHIP taking place globally and in Jerusalem. Those who obstruct, oppose, prevent, sabotage Worship from taking place face God’s judgement and punishment for their actions. Jesus whipped traders, turned tables to bring about change but they refused to listen. They whipped Jesus 40 times after trumped up false charges against Jesus Yeshua the True Messiah.
Repentance and God’s forgiveness is the solution to problem of greed exploiting others for unfair profit margins. Buying and selling is considered worldly affair but actually is seriously God’s business matter. Jesus warns the unfair traders whose practices shortchange people to change for good or face the damnation torment in hell fire as enemies of God. Hindering GOD’S PATENT RIGHT OF WORSHIP IN JERUSALEM is sin against Yahweh. Out of all cities and countries in the world the only PLACE CHOSEN BY GOD TO DWELL IS JERUSALEM. So Jesus reminds all, God’s TEMPLE is HOUSE OF PRAYER for ALL NATIONS in 4 Gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke focus on events, John interprets meaning of what Jesus said and did. Jesus stayed in Temple area healing blind and lame in Matthew 21:14. Leaders of Temple for all nations gained from people changing currency so did not conform to the Standard set by God for HIS Worship. As God’s people meet to worship HIM distraction disturb HIS true order by money loving greedy few. God’s Holy Sacred Space, set aside for Worship of God Almighty’s Temple is not revered. Greedy lovers of money, not Lovers of God dupe ordinary hard-working people’s time to worship God, exploited by the opportunist salesmen. Even God the Creator, Maker, exploited shamelessly by greedy few ruining it in House of God for Prayer for All Nations.
After 2000 years Jesus endtime priority to FOCUS on Sovereign Yahweh GOD’S WORSHIP IN JERUSALEM in the Temple is an important matter once again. The Temple builders and churches raise funds to rebuild GOD’S HOUSE. People are taught to WORSHIP and LOVE GOD to trust God so not taken advantage or duped as was done in Jesus’ time. Then people paid exorbitant prices for animal sacrifice. Modern time greed is worse in some areas where people pay for things promised in the name of God but never materialise. Guerrilla business tactics shamelessly exploits people to dupe them of money they never receive true value for by such traders. The POWER in the Blood and Name of Jesus is still freely available to call on God in Jesus Name for help in time of need. Father God’s House is infiltrated during church meetings to take advantage of meetings offering pyramid schemes and prayers for sale, fees to vulnerable people, jilted spouses or those looking for material wealth and love. Riches in God’s House often made in the name of the “pillars” or “chosen vessels” fuel megarich grand greedy lifestyle by people. Jesus warns, as it was in the days of Noah and Lot so people keep on buying and selling and getting married unaware of the wrath of God. So that destruction Jesus warns about is unfolding culminating in great tribulation. The love of material things beyond measure above human life is not true mark of disciples of God. The priority of life shifts from looking unto God to supply needs to a greedy profit that starves, deprives, exploits or kills to dupe people. So God’s Temple House of Prayer for all nations becomes part of the problem not solution. The exploited are victims of such reinforced practices allowing selfish monopolist domination detrimental to life and spiritual growth, maturity, well-being. In limited confined monopolized space worshippers cannot prepare in advance to buy the animals elsewhere cheaper than relying on last-minute expensive purchase in a temple vicinity. Jesus said focus on Worship of God in House of prayer for all nations.
Stop the vulnerable destructive patterns fuelling the cycle process taking unfair advantage of people worshiping God. In time of need authentic change does not happen unless the challenges faced are dealt with truly in the heart. Salvation and deliverance prayer sale is the root cause of emotional bankruptcy of life of followers of Christ tagged to the price of sacrifices like days of Jesus. God’s House demands pure heart worship not just an animal sacrifice to depend on. So Jesus’ BLOOD SACRIFICE atones for sin ONCE AND FOR ALL not by expensive animals sold in Temple or their money sacrifice. Guaranteed Christian salvation Focus is on Jesus explained by Martin Luther to churches. Licence of dependency on the purchase gains exploiting people does not point them directly to God. So they become richer in the name of God while the congregations lose out and leave as fresh members continue cycle. This is why judgement begins in House of God. Sadly creates false image of Christianity to onlookers, disappointed and put off by such actions depicting God in a bad light. It is essential to be honest not to gain the whole world to lose your soul. God prefers genuine worship not just a sacrifice so acknowledge the problem. Accept once and for all that Jesus saves lives PAID for by His LIFE and BLOOD. This issue is part of consequences of sin DNA imperfections but FIXED BY JESUS. God confidence is from direct impact of reaching God given potential in Christ. Trusting Jesus to help overcome doubts, anxieties, depression, fears, insecurities, stress, pressure or questioning without break or rest, health, problems left at Jesus’ Feet. Searching for the unrealistic gold at end of rainbow to resolve life’s problems causes exploitative patterns of behaviour as victim insists on getting a relief from such salesmen. God Honours all who honour parents, release the past to seek God’s method of help. God is not deaf or powerless to answer prayer but effects of such behaviour affect God’s HELP. Take total control responsibly in Christ to live and have being in Christ in God personally in prayer and in actions.
People find inner healing as the new creation in Christ. Relationship in Christ Jesus as His disciple is based on sound Biblical Wisdom gained from studying the word of God. Godly Counsel feeds and satisfies soul, spirit, mind and body to Trust God directly, boldly through the BLOOD OF JESUS with God Confidence. Leaders run race to win too and heal by seeking First God’s Face not blessings from God’s Hands. Those in Christ Look to God to keep on the right path in life. Seek God Face as SOURCE OF HELP and God despatches help through people. So gain God Truth searching Scriptures to KNOW GOD FOR YOURSELF. Believers grow from PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with God. The Bible says do not enter God’s PRESENCE without offering gift, sacrifice but do not depend on the gifts more than SOVEREIGN GOD ALMIGHTY GIVER AND SUSTAINER OF ALL LIFE. By overcoming in life gives God Strength to be stronger in the Lord’s Power to help and support each other in God’s House.
Regular focus of New life in Christ Jesus erases old influence so mind is renewed by future in Christ. Old ideas and habits are possible to control when new life in Christ is taken seriously, Godly Future is guaranteed in Christ. God must increase in your life in Christ and flesh decrease. Consider how God Cares and Provides beautifully for birds and flowers more than Solomon in all his glory. Challenges in life arena are conquered to overcome in Jesus by keeping life real. Unrealistic utopia expectations put pressure on the people fascinated by not thinking God’s Way. Through challenges faith grows so rely First on God. Accept plan of God to seek first His Kingdom and all things added to your life in Christ. The Key to good success in life in Christ Jesus on the whole is listen to God’s Words. Jesus Knows about you more than you think. Good success in life is in Christ in God. It does not mean spend all day and night 24/7 in prayer rather be mindful of the fact that Worship of Sovereign God with love and reverence. Jesus’ statement did not mean money must never exchange hands in church or not give in church.
Jesus is teaching accurate knowledge to seek God first and blessings are added. Short-changing others by the expensive sales of animals, relics, tokens, sales to gain profit rather than true worship of God is offence to God. Freewill giving and fair trade price is required more in God’s House when buying and selling takes place. In 1 John 4:9, the LOVE of God manifests among us for God sent HIS First Born Only Son into the world, so we might live through Jesus. God in past tolerated people to come to their senses to change to submit to God. After thousands of generations of freewill to do as pleased, God is bringing CHANGE to whole world to be under HIS OWN TOTAL CONTROL again as it was before sin in garden of Eden. And people must change to belong exclusively to God or people will sadly perish. The transitions taking place in the world is part of God’s wrath against rebellious who refuse to worship God. The House of Prayer for all nations means exactly all the nations belong to God. So Jerusalem Temple for all nations welcomes all to worship God forever in Jesus Name. So Jesus disrupts routine in Temple to show sinfulness prevents God Seekers from knowing Yahweh truly. Put confidence in God not animal sacrifice extortion to gain profit. Put CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST IN GOD for one of the endtime signs is rebuilding Temple in Jerusalem. After thousands of years this will happen and Jesus will RETURN TO JERUSALEM. Israel will accept and Welcome Hamashiah Yeshua Adonai in Jesus Name in the Temple for prayer for all nations in Jerusalem.
