He’s Still Cleansing Temples

The corporate church is a collection of individual people coming together, just as the Temple in Jerusalem was the corporate expression of the many synagogues around Israel and Judah. When Jesus came into the Temple to cleanse the corporate, it was actually a sign He was cleansing the ones who were there and they ALL were there for it was Passover.

Mark 11:15-17 “Then they came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple area and began to drive out those who were selling and buying on the temple grounds, and He overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves; and He would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple grounds. And He began to teach and say to them, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a den of robbers.”

There are “temple” names we know who are being cleansed and it is being made visible the corruption they were/are doing in their temple. Hearing about their corruption is a call not to throw stones at them as though there is no corruption in our temple. However, it is like a trumpet call warning us, Jesus has not changed, He still does not tolerate corruption in our temple. Remember we are the temple of the Holy Spirit and it’s time to deep clean our house of all corruption, not cast stones at those whose corruption is on Front Street.

Every cleansing that goes public is to send a message to the masses, Jesus still expects, purity from His people. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, He is God, He sets the bar.
