Jesus Angry ?

Filed under: by:

Jhon 2:15-16
2:15 And when he had made a Scourge of Small Cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the Changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
2:16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

If we look at the verses above, it seems Jesus was angry. He drove all the merchants in the temple. He even overturned the tables of money changers. Jesus who is love at that moment really made the atmosphere in the temple to be uncomfortable for a moment. But when we look more deeply with the whole mess, Jesus wanted to cleanse the temple of the situation is not neat and clean. Jesus really loves the Father and His house. Jesus wanted the Father's house be a home that is clean, orderly and can actually be used as a place for people to meet with the Father in heaven.

Bodies we have are truly the temple of the Holy Spirit. Our bodies are physical and spiritual body is the place where the Lord Jesus to live and dwell. With our bodies we can meet with the Father in heaven. With this body we can praise and glorify the name of God and of course with this body we can convey the words of God through the light of our actions and our mouth.

Often we do not use our bodies for a spiritual things. We just use it "for sell". Switch spiritual things we should do with our sins and our laziness.We think that it's okay to do sin like that because of His expensive blood will "pay" for our sin.

Or maybe because of the difficult situation we sell our faith for some money. We left the love of Christ and turn to the others love who are not necessarily the same. Love that can not atone for our sins, of course.

Make our body as a place to sell of course not pleased at the Heart of Jesus.

Jesus wanted to clean our bodies from all the dirt there. Because Jesus loved the Father and His house. That means that Jesus loves us completely. So if now we have a trials or we are rebuked by God, it's meaning that Jesus is cleaning our body. God is overturning our sins. Father's house so that is our bodies to be clean, neat and orderly. And we can meet with the Father in heaven with our clean home.

God bless you

Great message! I enjoyed reading it and it's true... our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and we shouldn't allow anything that would be offensive to God.
