Scripture: Mark 11:15-19
As soon as Jesus cursed the fig tree, they came to Jerusalem and He went into the temple and drove out those who bought and sold in the temple. He overturned the tables of the money-changers. Jesus identified a ‘tribe’ that had taken power which He could have easily called the Mammonites and they were defiling the temple. Because they were defiling the temple, Jesus threw them out. What Elijah did to the agrarian economy, Jesus did to the ‘thieves’ that were inside the temple as a demonstration. Jesus did not hesitate to use His Kingly anointing. He did it at the beginning of His ministry in John 2 and at the end of His ministry in Mark 11. Isn’t it time we realize that facing the end of the age demands Kingly authority? The Kingly ministry must predominate in the last days!
