“Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 7:11
God was saying to the people of Israel, You act like your religious but your actions tell another story! They would go to Gods Temple and pretend to worship him, however at home they were burning incense to baal and sacrificing their children to molech
God will not be fooled or mocked, you cant pretend to be religious and walk with Satan. God wants to be worshiped in Spirit and Truth! The Holy Temple has become a Den of Thieves because of the corruption man
And He said to them, “It is written, ‘MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER’; but you are making it a ROBBERS’ DEN.” Matthew 21:13
Jesus referenced this same scripture when cleaning the Holy Temple. Instead of the Temple being a place of worship, it became a marketplace, a shopping mall, for people to pretend they were religious. God will not be mocked!
What was Jesus reaction? He flipped over the tables, and drove out everyone who was defiling the Temple. Jesus was cleansing the Holy Temple, we need to cleanse our Temple also
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 1 Corinthian 6:19
As a Christian, you are the Temple of God, the Holy Spirit lives inside of You! We need to keep our temples clean from sin and corruption. Be like Jesus, drive out the sin and temptation in your heart! Cleanse your Temple in Jesus Name Amen!
