I am removing the moneychangers from My house of prayer. No longer will My house be prostituted and turned into a marketplace for personal gain. People will once again reverence Me, for My presence will cause all to bow down and cry, "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty; who was and is, and is to come."
Far too many come seeking to be entertained or to have an emotional experience, but leave wanting in their soul. Do not misunderstand Me, for I am the God of creativity. I love lights and music, for I am Light and I am Sound. I am the Author of all creativity. Come into My throne room and you will see it is anything but quiet.
My question to you is, are you really worshipping Me? Have you become so enamored with the physical realm that you have forgotten the supernatural God of wonders? For I am much bigger than a light show. I am in your midst, mighty to save, your strong Deliverer. I am bigger than an emotional experience. I want to encounter you on a cellular level, for My deep cries out to yours.
Therefore, come into My presence expecting more than a few goose bumps. For when I touch you, I am looking for change from the inside out; change that can only be accomplished when I touch you. Seek Me to know Me and My ways, for I have so much more for you. I am ready to take you to a new level. The question remains, are you ready to go deep? Instead, allow Me to take you out of the shallow waters. Let’s plunge into the greater depths of My mercy and love.

Jesus in the Temple

He overturned the tables of the money changers and the stands of those selling doves. 13 And he said to them, “My dwelling place will be known as a house of prayer, but you have made it into a hangout for thieves!”
Acts 15:16-17 New Living Translation (NLT)
16 ‘Afterward I will return and restore the fallen house of David.
I will rebuild its ruins and restore it,
17 so that the rest of humanity might seek the Lord, including the Gentiles—all those I have called to be mine. The Lord has spoken—
