John 2:15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
Matthew 21:12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.
As one studies the above verses you get the notion that Money,and Religious practice had crossed lines. What was acceptable to the rich and greedy became acceptable to the religious hierarchy. The temple of God was being compromised. It was okay to use the temple of God in this manor according to the clergy of the day. Jesus made it known that Gods temple(which figuratively speaking is you)cannot be trashed, disrespected with greed and money. We cannot go through life wishing and hoping for this thing and that thing. We have to have faith that God will see us through. Know it, walk it, talk it, breath it. FAITH. No longer do you have to go through life on a wing and a prayer if you have God in your life always and not just at your convenience.
