WHEN JESUS COMES INTO THE TEMPLE

REV. SCOTT EPPERSON

2/18/07

(Mat 21:12) And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

(Mat 21:13) And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

(Mat 21:14) And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

(Mat 21:15) And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,

(Mat 21:16) And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise

INTRO.

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

(1Co 6:19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

(2Co 6:16) And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

The world says that you are your own and just do what feels good. God says don’t you know you are my temple? You are not your own.

The world says, " God is not interested in men and is not concerned with your life."

God says " I want to dwell in them not just look at them, I want to walk and fellowship with them not just talk to them, God says I want to be theirs and they mine.

It is clear as we read this text what happens when Jesus enters the temple.

#1) HE CAST OUT SIN FROM THE TEMPLE

(Mat 21:12) And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

2Co 6:14 for what fellowship hath righteousness with

unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Duplex Mentality ( God does not live in a duplex)

He will not share your heart with sin and carnality he wants complete sovereignty.

YOU STILL FEEL CONVICTION ?

Jesus hears what you hear

Sees what you see

Feels what you feel

When Jesus comes in the temple sin must go out. If you are growing comfortable in sin possibly Jesus has left the temple.

Insensitivity to Sin

A little girl in London held up her broken wrist and said, "Look, Mommy, my hand is bent the wrong way!" There were no tears in her eyes. She felt no pain whatever. That was when she was four years old.

When she was six, her parents noticed that she was walking with a limp. A doctor discovered that the girl had a fractured thigh. Still she felt no pain.

The girl is now 14 years old. She is careful now, but occasionally looks at blisters and burns on her hands and wonders, "How did this happen?" She is insensitive to pain! Medical specialists are baffled by the case. It is called ganglineuropathy.
