In the fury of respect and honor
I cannot allow such horror
This is My Father's House!

Do not cheapen this sacred place so holy
By robbing others for nothing other than money
This is My Father's House!

Let My Spirit rush in and clear it
Create in you a clean heart and a righteous spirit
You are My Father's House

You are to be a house of prayer
Seek Him, and no one other
You are My Father's House

In faith believe that He forgives
If you will first forgive each other
You are My Father's House

For this, no need to rob and cheat
I've paid the price; it's yours to keep
You are My Father's House

Let's all together live in peace
Drawn together by His Love and Grace
We are My Father's House

Hebrews 3:6 NAS

but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house-- whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.


Mark 11:15-26 NAS

 15 Then they came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple and began to drive out those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves;

 16 and He would not permit anyone to carry merchandise through the temple.

 17 And He began to teach and say to them, "Is it not written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE NATIONS'? (But you have made it a ROBBERS' DEN."

 18 The chief priests and the scribes heard this, and began seeking how to destroy Him; for they were afraid of Him, for the whole crowd was astonished at His teaching.

 19 When evening came, they would go out of the city.

 20 As they were passing by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up.

 21 Being reminded, Peter said to Him, "Rabbi, look, the fig tree which You cursed has withered."

 22 And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God.

 23 "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.

 24 "Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.

 25 "Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions.

 26 ["But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions."]

Jody, you've spoken my heart and I believe many of today's believers are feeling this way. There is too much corruption in the church that is gone unnoticed and fear of chastising wrong-doing as made us people pleasers instead of doing the will of God. God bless you and I pray you'll stay connected with Him. Janice

Powerful reflection of the Lord. This is my Father's House which is a house of worship. Great job.

Jody, I say Amen and Amen to this. How we abuse the Father's house. Thank you for the reminder and wake-up call.
