Subject: Matthew 21:12-13
[b]Brethren,[/b] [b][/b] [b]Another shared file thru the internet by our Brethen capturing the collective [/b] [b]revelations of the church of God for the edification of babes in Christ [/b][b]all [/b] [b]over the world.[/b] ========================================================== Matthew 21:12 "And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves," =========================================================== [b]Who is the temple of God?[/b] ! Corinthians 3:16 "[b][u]Know ye not that ye are the temple of God[/u][/b], and that [b]the [/b] [b]Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"[/b] [b]Does this mean that the temple mentioned in the foregoing verse is not of everybody?[/b] [b]As you could read "Ye are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwelleth in you".[/b] [b]Therefore, one can not be temple of God unless the Spirit of God dwells in that someone. [/b] [b]When can be said [/b][b]that the Spirit of God dwells on someone? Is this not what have been [/b][b]said [/b] [b]in verse:[/b] [b][/b] John 14:23 "Jesus answered and said unto him, [b][u]If a man love me, he will keep my words[/u]: [/b] [b]and [/b][b]my Father will love him, [u]and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him."[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] [b]For them (Jesus + Father=Holy Spirit) to make their abode with someone, His words must be [/b] [b]kept/followed, [/b][b]but [/b][b]what are these words to be followed/kept? Is not this mentioned in:[/b] [b][/b] John 6:63 "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: [b][u]the words that I speak unto you, [/u][/b] [b][u]they are spirit, and they are life."[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] [b]And these words are:[/b] [b][u][/u][/b] 1 Corinthians 2:13 "Which things also we speak,[b] [u]not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth[/u][/b], [b]but which the Holy Ghost teacheth[/b]; [b][u]comparing spiritual things with spiritual."[/u][/b] [u][/u] [b]Which the Lord teaches to temples/babes in Chist as in:[/b] [b][/b] Isaiah 28:9 "Whom shall [b]he teach knowledge[/b]? and whom shall [b]he make to understand doctrine[/b]? [b][u]them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts."[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] Isaiah 28:9 "For [b]precept must be upon precept[/b], precept upon precept; line upon line, [b]line upon line;[/b] [b]here a little, and there a little[/b]:" [b]This instruction will be attested/confirmed by :[/b] [b][/b] 2 Timothy 3:16 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, [u][b]rightly dividing the word of truth[/b]."[/u] [u][/u] [b][/b] [b]By demonstration:[/b] [b][/b] Mark 14:58 "We heard him say, [b]I will destroy this temple that is made [/b] [b]with hands[/b], [b][u]and within three days I will build another made without hands."[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] John 2:19 "[b][u]Jesus answered and said[/u][/b] unto them, [b][u]Destroy this temple, [/u][/b] [b][u]and in three days I will raise it up.'[/u][/b] John 2:20 "Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?" John 2:21 "But [b][u]he spake of the temple of his body[/u][/b]." John 2:22 "[b]When therefore he was risen from the dead[/b],[b][u] his disciples [/u][/b] [b][u]remembered that he had said this unto them[/u][/b]; and [b][u]they believed the [/u][/b] [b][u]scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.[/u][/b] [b]Who buy and sell?[/b] [b][/b] Revelation 13:17 "And that [b]no man might buy or sell[/b], [b]save he that had the mark, [/b] [b]or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."[/b] Revelation 13:8 "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding [b]count the number of [/b] [b]the beast: for it is the number of a man[/b]; and [b]his number is Six hundred threescore and [/b] [b]six."[/b] [b][/b] Revelation 12:9 "And the[b] great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the [/b] [b]Devil, and Satan, [/b]which [b]deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, [/b] and his angels were cast out with him." [b]It is being stated in Isaiah 55:1 that you can buy wine (Holy Spirit-[/b] Matthew 26:27 "And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.") [b]and [/b][b]milk (word of God-[/b]<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />1 Peter 2:2 "As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:") [b]without a price:[/b] [b][/b] Isaiah 55:1 "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, [b][u]buy wine and milk without money and without price."[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] Proverbs 23:23 [b]"[u]Buy the truth[/u][/b], and [b][u]sell it not[/u][/b]; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding." 1 Corinthians 2:12 "Now [b][u]we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit [/u][/b] [b][u]which is of God[/u][/b]; [b] that we might know the things that are [u]freely given to us of God[/u]."[/b] [b]Summing up, the truth that was bought free/at no price can not be sold but should[/b] [b]be freely given to those who craves for it. It is only satan the devil and its cohorts that[/b] [b]buy and sell the so called truth. For the truth (no lie) is not for sale, but given freely[/b] [b]or available to anyone who will need it.[/b] [b][/b] [b]What is a table?[/b] Romans 11:9 "And David saith, [url=mk:@MSITStore:C:Documents and SettingsArt.BargaMy Documentskjvkjv.chm::/B19C069.htm#V22][b]Let their table be made a snare, and a trap,[/b] [/url] and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: " Isaiah 28:13 "But the [b]word of the LORD[/b] was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; [b]that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.[/b] [b][/b] [b]With the preceding verses the table made a snare is the counterfeit/false word of God[/b] [b]mentioned in:[/b] [b][/b] [b]2 Corinthians 3:6 "[/b]Who also hath [b]made us able ministers of the new testament;[/b] [b][u]not of the letter, but of the spirit[/u]: [u]for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life."[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] [b][/b] [b]What are the ways of moneychanger?[/b] Deuteronomy 2:6 "Ye shall [b]buy meat of them for money, that ye may eat[/b]; and ye shall also buy [b]water of them for money[/b], that [b]ye may drink[/b]." [b]Meat:[/b] John 6:55 "For my flesh is meat indeed, and [b]my blood is drink[/b] indeed." John 6:54 "Whoso eateth my flesh, and [b]drinketh my blood[/b], hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. Jer. 15:16 "Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart…" [b]Water:[/b] Ephesians 5:26 "That [b][u]he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] [b]Apparently, the money changers are the one preaching the literal word of God in exchange[/b] [b]for the money. Salvation is being peddled. [/b] [b]What is the seat?[/b] Revelations 2:13 "[b]I know thy works, and where thou dwellest[/b], [b][u]even where Satan's seat is[/u][/b]:..." John 8:44 "[b]Ye are of your [u]father [/u]the devil[/b], and [b]the [u]lusts of your father ye will do[/u].[/b] He was a murderer from the beginning, and [u][b]abode not in the truth[/b][/u], [b][u]because there is [/u][/b] [b][u]no truth in him[/u][/b]. [b]When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for [/b][b]he is a liar, [/b] [b]and the father of it."[/b] [b][/b] [b]Aforementioned verses identified the seat of Satan as lie (not true) for there is no truth[/b] [b]in him for he dwells in lies.[/b] [b]Who is the dove?[/b] LUKE 3:22 "And the[b] Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove[/b] upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased." Deuteronomy 13:6 "If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend,[u] [b]which is as thine own SOUL[/b][/u], [b]entice thee secretly[/b], saying, [b]Let us go and serve other gods,[/b] which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers." [b]Verses above described the dove as the counterfeit Spirit of God which equates the[/b] [b]Spirit of Man (soul=intellect + feeling/emotion) of whom the father is the devil.[/b] [b]Therefore, the temple of God who is the church/children of God will be cleansed[/b] [b]by the spirit of God from the ways, teachings and doctrines of men concerning spirituality. [/b] [b]The spirit and the ways [/b][b]of the natural man in the church will be blotted away. In other [/b] [b]words, our Lord Jesus Christ (Holy Spirit in babes of Christ) is driving away the attributes ,[/b] [b]ways [/b][b]of the devil in children God.[/b] [b][/b] [b][/b] Matthew 12:28 "[b]But if [u]I cast out devils by the Spirit of God,[/u] then [u]the[/u][/b] [b][u]kingdom of God is come unto you."[/u][/b] [b][/b] [b]Again, by demonstration kingdom of God is:[/b] [b][/b] Matt. 18:3 "… Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:4 “Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Luke 18:16 “But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God." Luke 18:17 “Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein." [b]But what is the Kingdom of God according to HIs inspired words? [/b] Rom. 14:17 "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." Galatians 5:22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 22 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" ====================================================================== Matthew 21:13 "And said unto them, It is written, [url=mk:@MSITStore:C:Documents%20and%20SettingsArt.BargaMy%20Documentskjvkjv.chm::/B23C056.htm#V7]My house shall be called the house of prayer;[/url] but ye have made it [url=mk:@MSITStore:C:Documents%20and%20SettingsArt.BargaMy%20Documentskjvkjv.chm::/B24C007.htm#V11]a den of thieves.[/url]" ============================================================== [b]Pray:[/b] [b][/b] 1 Corinthians14:15 "What is it then? [b]I will pray with the spirit[/b], and [b]I will pray with the [/b] [b]understanding[/b] also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. [b]When you pray[/b] [b]with spirit and understanding, you are communicating with the truth[/b] [b](spiritual word=literal word of God + Spirit of the Lord) that is why pray without ceasing [/b] [b](1 Thessalonians 5:17) made possible (constant communication with the truth)[/b] [b]Thief/Robber[/b] John 10:1 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, [b]He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, [/b] [b]but climbeth up some other way, the same is a [u]thief and a robber"[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] John 10:7 "Then [b]said Jesus unto them[/b] again, [b]Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep[/b]." John 10:9 "[b][u]I am the door[/u]: [u]by me if any man enter in[/u][/b], [b][u]he shall be saved[/u], and shall go in and out, and [/b] [b]find pasture."[/b] John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, [b][u]I am the way, the truth, and the life[/u][/b]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." [b]These thieves/robbers are railroading the truth by not entering the door (Jesus, the truth) thus having the lies.[/b] [b]The only truth is Jesus (the door) [/b][b]who is the only way. He who lives by the lies is the associate of the devil[/b] [b]for he is the father of lie(s) (John 8:44).[/b] [b][/b] [b]The house which is the temple of God is supposedly the communication center of the truth or it is [/b] [b]where the bonding [/b][b]of truth occurs, but these thieves {(old self, natrural man, soul-intellect [/b] [b]and emotion and spirit of the devil) made it their place[/b] [b]in the absence of the Spirit of God. [/b] [b]That signifies the fury of God in Matthew 21:12, casting out and overthrowing evilness in the [/b] [b]temple.[/b] [b][/b] Matthew 12:28 "[b]But if [u]I cast out devils by the Spirit of God,[/u] then [u]the [/u][/b][b][u]kingdom of God is come unto you.[/u][/b] [b][u][/u][/b] [b]Once the Spirit of God made its abode in the children of God and to keep away the evilness from the [/b] [b]temple, they should pray without ceasing (to have fellowship constantly with the word of God or to the[/b] [b]church of whom has the truth in Jesus Chirst our Lord) [/b] [b][u][/u][/b] .
