Isaiah 56:7, and Jeremiah 7:11
John2: 12-17: 5
Today is the seventh day of the Lent season. The story today is about Jesus getting angry when He saw that the people were using God's House as a place to sell merchandise like cows, pigs and doves. There is a 5 minute video of Christian Bear reading today's scripture below. It was made by donminbox and is free to use and pass to other Christians.
In this story we see two prophesies. An Old Testament prophesy happened when Jesus cleaned the temple when he go angry. This is found in Psalm 69:9. And Jesus prophesy of His own death and resurrection when He tells that the temple will be torn down and brought back in three days. He was referring to His own body. After Jesus died and rose from the dead the Disciples remembered that Jesus told these things would happen.
Heavenly Father I come to you in the precious name of Jesus. I Thank you Father, for Jesus, the Holy Spirit, our Salvation and for all things that you provide in our daily needs, and in knowledge and internal hope.
Heavenly Father I plead the precious blood of Jesus, and the healing strips of Jesus, Your Holy Word and the Power of the Holy Spirit over all those reading these lessons. And over all that hear your word that they may find Salvation. In the Holy and Precious name of Jesus and by the Power of the Holy Spirit Father let this ministry serve only for your glory. And in advance I give You all the glory the honor and all my our praises. For only You Father, are worthy of my Praises.
This I ask in the precious name of Jesus. Amen
(Prayer by Christian Bear Video)

Jesus Clears the Temple Courts
13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
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.
16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”
17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”[a]
