Why was Christ Mad at the Moneychangers?

God gave me a truth today. Often when I receive a truth it seems so simple that I feel that everyone knows this. Father’s word is not complex and when He gives you truth you know it is from Him when it really falls into place.

Matthew 21:12-15 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, (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. (14) And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. (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,

Till now I was stuck in the first level of this teaching. I see Christ kicking butt and get excited. Yes the first level is that they were selling unfit sacrifices in the temple for profit. This is the physical level of this teaching. But Christ was not just talking about money. The dove a symbol of the Holy Spirit and these jokers were selling mite infested dove that were unfit, but lets take it further. You can only have one spirit. Is that spirit of God or not? They were selling the instead of spirit. That “den of thieves” is them stealing souls. Stealing God’s children. We are told to turn the other cheek when teaching and when Christ was teaching he didn’t let their mocking stop Him.

But when it came to the house of God he drove them out like a good Shepherd should. We are the temple, beloved. The spirit of God is within us. Heaven is wherever God is. Think on that if you haven’t. Spiritually these men are standing in God’s temple taking souls.

That truly cannot be anything else other than the Rapture. For it is the teaching of the pre-tribulation rapture that leads people to sell their souls to satan.

Look, the only thing you need to be “saved” is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and ask for forgiveness. If you die before the tribulation and believe on the Lord you will be fine. You may be naked, but you will be fine. When Anti-Christ comes here everything changes. Because if you go to serve him then your spirit dies. No if’s, no ands, no maybe’s. It’s dead. And it will stay that way until after the millennium and Satan is released again. Not because someone took it from you but because you “bought” the wrong dove.

Mark 10:13-16 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. (14) But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. (15) Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. (16) And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

Christ wasn’t a little upset. He was much displeased the Greek is even stronger G23
ἀγανακτέω
aganakteō
ag-an-ak-teh’-o
From ἄγαν agan (much) and ἄχθος achhos̄ (grief; akin to the base of G43); to be greatly afflicted, that is, (figuratively) indignant: – be much (sore) displeased, have (be moved with, with) indignation.

He was moved with indignation and this was toward his chosen 12. This is not small matter. I’m not sure how best to end this, never intended it to be this long, so I will just end by saying I hope this helps and pray on it.
