33 A.D. What If You Saw Jesus In The Temple…What Would You Have Thought?

So often, we have not discussed real issues because people don’t like to hear things that go against what they believe to be true. Not hearing or discussing an issue will not make the issue go away. What it does is allow the issue to grow unchallenged and in many cases get bigger and bigger. The question is what issues are we allowing to get bigger and what issues are we allowing to diminish in not discussing them?

Friday of 33rd Week of the Year, November 20, 2020 - Claretian Missionaries

So far by not discussing the real issues, lawlessness is growing bigger and bigger and bigger and God’s truth has taken the back seat on public transportation (don’t talk about it) and in some cases is not even allowed on the bus.

So what is our example in what to do when we see something is not quite right…do we ignore it, or do we address it? Well, most say that if it does not concern you leave it alone. Well, that may work for a while, for a lifetime maybe as long as you know how to stay away from people. But, sooner or later complacency will destroy all you loved and held so dearly.

Imagine, 33 A.D., Jesus is entering the Temple courts. He sees the merchants selling their wares for a great offering that assures great blessings. He starts to make a whip from cords and you are there…do you advise him to look the other way and all the merchants mean well. Do you tell him not to rock the boat they do this all the time and have for over 50 years now and much good comes from it? And if you did say those things, do you think Jesus would have decided you were right and stop what he was going to do? Think what he did… in the middle of much shouting and pleas for him to stop (I’m sure they just didn’t sit there as their tables were thrown over) and the whip driving the animals out of the market place must have been quite a disturbance.

See the source image

John 2:13-17 13Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers [b]doing business. 15When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. 16And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” 17Then His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house [c]has eaten Me up.”

They later arrested Jesus in the Garden, accused him, scourged him and crucified him. But, that never made them right. It only condemned them further.

Tearing Down Barriers (3rd Lent, B)

When we look at the scripture “Zeal for your house has eaten me up.” that is a powerful statement. Ponder it, pray about it, and see what the Holy Spirit speaks to you about that.

Psalm 69:9 For the zeal of your house has eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached you are fallen on me. Psalm 119:139 My zeal has consumed me, because my enemies have forgotten your words. (Read these in their full context.)


So in these latter days that started at the time of our Lord and savior Jesus the Christ, we must search for truth and read the scriptures for ourselves. We will never be perfect, but we can strive to seek the truth in the Word of God. There are things we will not always understand, and times when we believe we understand a passage, only to grow more later and see with fresh eyes it means something we never knew before. One small verse can have many meanings…at deeper levels as we grow in our faith, but always take it within the context that it was given in.

We can pull words out and one liners and use them as weapons, even making them say what we want them to say brow beating any young believer or older one into doing what you tell them to do out of fear of hell fire or God not blessing them if they don’t do as you are instructing them to do, especially when it comes to sending in your money. Yet, is that of God? His word is line upon line, upon line, precept upon precept, upon precept, here a little, there a little. All scripture is for edification and meant to be received in love and shared in love.

As we know in part and learn in part, let us share the truth of God’s word and be bold in proclaiming it.

Many write from first hand experience, and some from opinion. Many write from their own form of justification. We are in a season of threshing and gold tried in the fire. It is what it is. If your house is in order, you have nothing to fear nor to change. If not…now is the time to get things in order.

God bless us all, stay strong and trust in the Lord.

    This Is Spot on
    It’s Time to Walk in The Light
    We can only Forgive if they acknowledge they went against Gods people..

    Look at Acts 1 -18 in the bible
    With the payment he received for his wickedness,
    Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out.
    Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama
    That is the field of Blood ( the potters Field )
    Question was it full of clay Pits and in the dark Judas fell into one that broken clay pots were dispose in . Did this happened 38 minutes after they left the garden
    How did he received the 30 silver pieces
    Was Judas the first whistle blower “did he die to warn us from the Romans Plan!
    Is the story written in Matthew total Mind Control
    (the hold on all of us to be controlled by the Romans) MK ultra Roman style!!

    They want us to forgive
    Why they Steel everything from us
    The Judgement day His Here It Should Go Quick and Start now
    before any one else fall victim!

        That is the point I’m Making
        Who wrote the Bible
        how many times has it been re written
        Was it Gods plan for this to come out now -what was told in ACTS
        I went back in time to re live what happened
        It was intense
        There is a lot involved in how it happened
        I stated this as a question above
        I’m just a simple Farmer in Michigan
        Is any one interested in Going deeper in this subject

        I’m OPEN FOR ANY PERSON to contact me

        EASTER is coming up
        The truth is in a race with this event going on now
        The world is in the balance

        as you correctly noted above
        At the last supper, the Lord addressed that one of them would betray him.
        This was the Lord words

        the first time I recognize this was when i was about 6 or 7 years old
        on Good Friday in a Catholic church

        In 2017 I Listen to what God spoke to me in ACTS
        he let me journey back in time when it happened.

        This revelation will be more intense than the troubles We have in this country Today

        Trust in Him
        Walk in a new light

  4. The real question is what if you saw Jesus preaching when he walked the earth? Would you have been a true believer or hold onto to religious beliefs and traditions that your ancestors held for 1500- 2000 yrs? Dianne, i do appreciate your work and find your writing somewhat intriguing, because deep down I’m sensing that you’re searching for the truth. I just don’t want you to be blind to the real truth. It takes real eyes to realize the real lies.


    1. Terry says:

      Nice point of you saying, “It takes real eyes to realize the lies”. Please indicate who you believe Jesus, the head of the body, recognizes and acknowledges as ***His God*** now in heaven, in Rev.3:12?


  5. Terry says:

    23 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”

    He said to them, 24 “********Make every effort******** to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, ***will try*** to enter and will not be able to.” —- Luke 13:23-24

    Luke 10:24
    For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

    Mark 9:9
    And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

    Ezekiel 3:12
    12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place.

    Eashoa would never use a whip on another Being. That was not in his philosophy or teachings. His story is not represented in Truth mostly in the Lies of His Time much like it is today. His crucifixion was a designed propaganda event. He never died on a cross. He lived on into His 80’s in lands far from those where
    He was depicted by the Roman Gods.


  8. Well, Yeshua did use whips, as it is written, only on those who would identify today as ‘bad actors’ –not sheep nor dog shepherds, but wolves in disguise.
    But let me answer Dianne’s question: being present there in the Temple, guess it was 30AD, I’d have thought “FINALLY!! The Owner of this House is back and does the cleaning.”

    Nothing is as it appears to be, not the cleaning in the Temple, because Khrist Pantokrator employs swift and subtle erasure techniques, that a typical human eye, or consciousness, can’t perceive. So He had to present this show with whips, for the observers to notice and for the writers to write the history down. But the judgment and execution have been already completed by that time.

    Same today, we’re watching a show in the swamp. Who thought that this would be a pleasant watch?

    My heart is tuned in….between the post on Draining the Swamp in the Church (and the hours of teaching videos it contained), and now this post with David Wilkerson, I’m at a crossroad. I see the hand of God, reaching for me to give me a step up. Honestly….this is painful….and….this is a glorious moment. I’m scared….I’m excited….I’m determined…I’m filled with the joy of the Lord. And, I’m going forward. This moment was meant for good…and I’m leaning into it….full force. Just like on the night of the election, when the pain of reality hit me square in the face….here it goes again….but….it’s all good…it’s all for His glory! I love you, Lord Jesus, more than words can express….to You be highly lifted up. In Your name….AMEN!!!
