After that, he found himself in the temple and he saw something he did not dig. He saw something that made him angry. That’s right; Jesus was not some pale, frail, blue eyed white boy. No, no, no, no, he was a man’s man. Someone who displayed his emotions perfectly. He was perfectly disciplined. He was per, perfectly aggressive, he perfectly got angry, he perfectly got sad, he perfectly cried, he perfectly had joy.
Jesus though was angry because some people had turned the temple, the temple courtyard to be specific, in a casino. He didn’t like that. He got angry. Well, what did he do? He did something that we need to unpack. Now most of us read this verse and we skip right over the important parts. But, this, this stuff is deep right here, there’s a phrase that’ll, that’ll, mess you up. John Chapter 2 verse 15, so he what? Read it with me. (audience participates) Right, he made a whip. This is Jesus. See, again, we, we, have this whacked view of him, many of us here do. Jesus when he saw what was unfolding he got angry and he made a whip. He drove all from the temple area.
Sheep, baaa, baaa, and cattle, moooo (Ed making animal sounds) he scattered their coins of the money, money, money (Ed singing like Trump’s Apprentice show opening) money changers and overturned their tables. Ah, something leaps right out at me right quick. Jesus did not whip the people. I hope you know that. He whipped (Ed making whip sounds) the cattle, got them out of the temple, threw the money, money out of the temple because he knew when he got the cattle out and the money out people would follow, you know. But a phrase we just read over, we skipped over, had you repeated it, but most of us don’t think about it.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: C3 Global Leadership
