JESUS CLEANSES THE TEMPLE
In a rare display of wrath Jesus drives out those who made worship a means of padding their own pockets with money.
Excerpt from: LENTEN ENCOUNTERS, by Lynelle Mason
The following day enraged by the dishonest money making schemes of Annas, the ex High Priest, Jesus upset his booth with a whip and drove out away the merchants and their goods. John says, “I’ve never seen the Master so angry! I knew Annas wasn’t going to suffer in silence. Sure enough, I was right.
If you want to raise the ire of the Godhead then misuse the house of God. It doesn’t have to do only with exchanging foreign coins for Jewish shekels or making livestock exchanges.
This leads me to examine in what ways I might, in 2015, raise the ire of God. How about you?
