Isaiah 1:25-26; Malachi 3:2-3; Matthew 3:12; 10:7-8; 21:12-13; Mark 11:15-17;
John 2:14-17; Luke 19:45-46; Galatians 1:8-9; I Peter 4:17

Martin Luther exposed the corruption of religious racketeers who profiteered from the fears of people kept ignorant of My Word. As this Church Age draws to a close, I am about to purge My House again, even as I drove out the buyers and sellers of merchandise from My Father’s House in Jerusalem.
When I gave My disciples the Great Commission just prior to My Ascension to heaven, did I command them to fish for funds rather than men? No! I sent them out to heal the sick and to preach deliverance to those held captive by satan. I wanted to show mankind MY loving nature, and to manifest it through My followers. They were to freely give, as they had freely received.
There were many charlatans in Jerusalem who called themselves by My Holy Name, who claimed to be My earthly representatives. They exhorted (and extorted) as religious tax collectors, forcing others to cede to them even the tithe of mint, anise, and cumin. But they were not so zealous to perform those duties which would not bring them immediate rewards. Instead of taking pity on poor widows, those heartless religious scoundrels robbed them of their very subsistence. What leeches they were!
How enraged those racketeers were when I drove the merchants, birds and beasts out of the Temple! How frantically they scrambled to recover the coins clattering on the pavement! Their hearts and souls were bound up in that filthy lucre, and they perished with it.
How insulted I am, to be associated with con artists preying on weak souls. MY Prophet Ezekiel prophesied against false pastors who exploit the flock of the Lord and drive away those who are thirsty for the Truth (Ezekiel Chapter 34). Many lost souls are lampooning the Gospel of Christ, just because of all the con games which are going on in My name.
I am finished with being patient with those who deliberately turn My Holy Gospel into a Greed Creed, and the Lord of Heaven into a slot machine!
I know of more than a few fools who say: “So what if I’ve got to stand before God someday and give an account of my true motives? I will already have had my piece of pie, with ice cream piled on top.”
But bitterness will fill the bellies of all those who lived merely to serve self and gratify their carnal lusts. Too late they will realize how false was their maxim: “I can eat my cake and have heaven too!”
