The Money Changer in the Temple:

Updated: Feb 1




In Matthew 21:12-13 Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. "It is written,” he said to them, “my house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers.” He called it a house of robbers because the Israelites had to make long journeys to the temple. so, the money changers would gouge them, or make them overpay or charge them for doves or lambs, or sell the same dove ten times. that's why the Prophet Jeremiah wrote in his seventh chapter v 11 “Has this house, which bears my Name, and say, we are safe”- safe to do all these detestable things? Has this house, which bears my name, become a den of robbers to you? But I have been watching! Declares the Lord. Go to the place in Shiloh where I first made a dwelling place,

if we go to 1 Samuel chapter 4-6, we find for twenty years the Philistines had exerted pressure on the Israelites. we find the Israelites had sent to Shiloh for the ark of God. This wooden chest overlaid with gold that symbolizes the very presence of God! called the Ark of God. And we find in 1Cor 6:19 “do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit: who is in you, whom you have from God,” When Jesus Died on the cross, we now can receive God's Holy Spirit. with faith in Jesus Christ we can have his Holy Spirit. Now Back to 1 Samuel chapter 4, the Ark was supposed to stay in the tabernacle but because they suffered a great defeat, Israel thought if they brought the Ark to the battlefield they could win Over the Philistines! then the philistines capture the Ark of God which teaches us we can fool one another but we can’t fool God, because he hears our hearts: not our words. Now look at 5:1-7:1 That to prove to us that He is our creator. Look at what happened when the Philistines placed the Ark in the same room with their chief God Dagon as a trophy to their God Dagon. the next morning their god Dagon had fell forward on his face like he was bowing to the Ark of God. so, they propped up their god Dagon, but his hands and head were broken off. Then the next day, they found their idol had fallen again.

We must understand in the ancient world when their tribe or kingdom was given victory or defeat over their enemies, it was because of their God, and so by breaking his hands off and his head off, The Lord was showing them without hands, or a head, he could not help them, then tumors began breaking out on the Philistines, they soon realized that the Israel God was more powerful than their god, that their god was unable to move his hands, or think, because he had no head. so, they decided to pay tribute to Israel to return their Ark to Israel.

In order to understand, we need to know about a priest named Elkanah that had a wife named Hannah that love the Lord God that had no children, so she prayed and told the Lord if he would open her womb, and give her a child, she would dedicate that child to the Lord. a boy was born, and she called him Samuel. when he turned 3 years old, he was taken to Shiloh to serve at the tabernacle. he lived with the high priest Eli and his two evil sons. that's how we know That Eli was a righteous man, but we find he was a great failure because he was unwilling to discipline his family as said in Samuel 2:27 when a prophet of God told Eli that he loved his two son's more than he loved the Lord God. Now we know why Israel kept losing to the Philistines, because the high priest failed to discipline his two wicked sons. he loved his sons more than he loved the lord. you see, they were taking bribes. Most people do not know what a Judge is. When God divided the lands of Israel, he appointed judges. they were supposed to magistrate the laws of the Hebrews. they were officers who presided over the affairs of the Hebrews. they were administrators. in America we call them white house or Administration, or president, or like Israel they called them prime minister. when they take bribes, they're working against God and their own people. they're supposed to be working for God and the people. that's why God calls them hypocrites and their greatest weapons is to deceive us And tell us what they’re not doing and what their opponent is doing. In the Fifty's there was a bank Robber and as he was coming down the steps from the court house of his trial, a reporter yelled at him, Mr. Sutton, why do you rob banks? He smiled, and spoke, That's where the money is! And today: money is in politics. for our President's can steal elections, take bribes, and we still call him, Mr. President. our Justice dept and F.B.I. looks the other way and goes after his opponent. In my book ‘Prophet of God write this down’! I wrote “Satan has a staff meeting” Now Jesus had been crucified on the cross. in the forty days, after his crucifixion, He appeared to his apostles from time to time actually alive to prove to them in many ways that he was still alive. In one of these meetings, he told them not to leave Jerusalem until the Holy Spirit came upon them in fulfillment of the Father's promise, a matter that He had previously discussed with them. Now seven weeks had gone by since Jesus’ death, and resurrection, and the festival of Pentecost had now arrived. As the believers met together that day, suddenly there was a sound: like the roaring of a mighty windstorm in the skies above them, and it filled the house where they were meeting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared, and began speaking in languages they didn’t know for the Holy Spirit gave them this ability. And soon they were doing great miracles, healing the sick and doing everything their Lord Jesus Christ had been doing. And they were being added to daily. Their numbers were multiplying by vast numbers. And being added to daily.  So, Satan had a staff meeting, and as he addresses his staff of demons, he wrings his hands: saying, What ARE WE GOING TO DO? WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? Then telling his demons! We thought that when we nailed the Son of God to the cross: that it was all over! That we had won, then his disciples started preaching the kingdom of God and healing the sick just like Jesus, so we thought, that if we killed them, and persecuted his followers that they would run like scared sheep. but because of God’s Holy Spirit they have gotten stronger and bolder and they are growing faster then before. what are we going to do? Then one demon popped up and said ‘I know what to do! Jesus said a kingdom divided against itself shall fall. All we have to do is divide them. so Satan asked, How can we do that? He answered! We will use the same tactic that we have used for centuries, we will use pride and selfishness. But that won’t work said Satan, because they are now filled with the Holy Spirit and they love one another and all are in one accord. Then the demon said, Do you remember what Jesus said? That he would send his helper, to comfort them. so that means the Holy Spirit will help them to overcome evil, and will comfort them when they are attacked, and we know that God would not take away their free will! So, we will used subtlety, like we used on Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, we will puff them up. We will have people tell them what a great preacher they are! And how important they are, and have people tell them how great God is using them. Now do you remember in Mark 9:2 when Jesus took Peter, James, and John to the top of a mountain? And suddenly His face begins to shine with Glory and his face become dazzling white. then Elijah and Moses appeared and began talking with Jesus. And Peter exclaimed! We will make three shelters here, One for each of you. Well, that was me speaking through Peter, because Peter was nervous and didn’t know what to say so I tried to trick Jesus into saying yes, because I wanted to put Elijah and Moses on the same level as Jesus the Son of God. But Jesus wouldn’t bite, but I learned one thing; every time that God gives man a little revelation, that he wants to build a monument to Himself. so we will use this to entice each of them to build different church’s or different denominations. then we will make them hate each other! and we will tell each of them that they are the only ones that are right and that their other brothers just don’t understand, and they are not really their brothers, because God has not given them the same revelation that he has them. We will make them suspicious of anyone who is not a member of their local church or denomination; we will take away their boldness and replace it with fear. And anyone who disagrees with them, we will make them hate them. Remember in John 13:34 Jesus Said “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. V35 “By this all the world will know you are my disciple, if you have love for one another.”

In the year 2000 Jesus came to my house to call me to be his Prophet. I had been fasting to get closer to Jesus, and I was kneeling at a wing chair in my study praying when I felt someone in my study. somehow I knew it was Jesus, and He began to speak to me. now the Holy Spirit always spoke through my heart but Jesus was talking though my ears Saying to me that He has called me to be His Prophet before I was conceived in my mother's womb. And now I know why I had memories of planes flying over my house, running to turn off the lights, pulling the shades, and being afraid they were going to drop bombs on my house. when I was in the third grade, in my classroom we were talking about world war-2 and I found out world war 2 ended in 1945 and I was born in 1944. I realized that could not be my memory, so I went home and asked my mother if she had such a memory. she replied yes, that was her memory. My dominant gift of the Holy Spirit has always been the gift of knowledge, knowing things that no man has told me, or mystery, that has not been taught to me. Remember in Matthew 13:57 “So They were offended at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except his own country, and in his own house.” That scripture answers a lot of questions, because a prophet is hated, and loved, because of man sins in the Garden of Eden. the prophets all have an invisible anointing on them from God. man is religious and thinks he is right with God, then they get around that anointing and they know that they cannot please the living God through religion but only through the blood of the Son of God. so they become jealous of God's prophets. then the Devil’s demons talk to them and make them hate God’s prophets. that's why the Nation of Israel is so hated, because God’s prophets gave us the Holy Bible. that's why they’re so hated, because that anointing allows them to figure out that it is Not by ritual, but only through God's mercy and Grace. And our faith in Jesus the only son of God. Now look at Matthew 24:4-5 “And Jesus answered and said to them: Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. It sounds like Jesus has a tongue twister. He's saying they will come in his name and then tells them that they are the Christ.’ Now we understand what the Holy Spirit was telling us in the story the Devil; has a staff meeting, and how He would Divide Jesus' Church. when we hate each other, we are now a member of the Devil’s scheme.

In my book “Prophet of God write this down” The Holy Spirit had me write letters to seven churches in the Pekin, Illinois area, He asked them to do one thing, to meet together and worship and praise Jesus Christ. if they did, He would heal every Man, Woman, and Child, dog, cat, and slay every living creature in a three block area. they would not. Then afterward, He allowed me to ask any questions I wanted and one of my questions was why they would not meet together. then He said; because Jesus was not their Lord, but their denomination was their Lord, I want everyone to Know, when we all get to heaven, we will All be glad to worship and praise Jesus Christ. And Most of us will be happy to yell at the top of our lungs That wonderful name ‘Jesus’! because, if it wasn’t for him we would have to spend eternity in the Unending lake of fire!

In Nov 2023 I wrote a blog called good vs evil: and why no one is afraid of Jesus Christ! And yet the Bible says, that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Then Jesus said to be afraid of the only one that can take your soul; which is God. the devil can’t take your soul, he can only trick you into giving it away to him. I would like to tell you a little about my ministry. as a child my dad would whip me three times a week and bully me by calling me dummy, stupid, idiot. so I was very shy and very quiet. So, I was trying to be an atheist but I would still pray in the name of Jesus because my mother lived her faith: by loving others as she loved herself. Then I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, soon after giving my life to Jesus: I was called to the Ministry. I knew that I could not do it. my dad thought he was a great Christian, he had read the Bible, and he knew everything about it. he just had his opinions or his denomination, of where he went to church, the Bible describes that Jesus was constantly being slandered by legalists, people trying to teach him the law of the  Hebrew from the legal side of the law, and Jesus was teaching the love of God. so they were trying to get into heaven by obeying the law, and Jesus was telling them they needed to love others as they loved their self. the reason the Son of God had to come was because he was the perfect lamb of God. no one else was the perfect lamb of God. we have to forgive if we want to be forgiven. That's why he was healing the blind and the crippled, to prove to them that he was the Son of the living God. and that's why the anointing is on all who are his chosen disciple’s. that's why all his disciples are persecuted and lied about, why Daniel was thrown in a lion's den, and why him and his three friends were thrown in a fiery furnace, because Daniel gave us prophecy that is very fascinating. he described all the major empires that would come to be up into the time of our great time of great trouble and about a willful king who would give his life for all. The intervention of Gabriel the Arch angel, to bring him a message 622 years before Christ. There is always a cost of following Jesus Christ because the devil hates Jesus and everyone who follows him. Just look at president Trump, just look at what he has to go through because those who want money from our government will do anything to stop him because of their greed, and their selfish desire for wealth and power.

In the early seventies, the Holy Spirit had me open a new church, and a short time later, I was summoned to a meeting in Bloomington, Normal, from my section chief to meet with him and seven or eight other pastors. they were upset because I had opened the Full Gospel Assembly of God Church. the Pastor of my sister church had complained because my church was too close to his church. Although, his was in the central part of the city and mine was on the south side. but the Holy Spirit was in our Church, because we were seeing healings and miracles, and all the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I was told they were running around 1400 people, and we were running about a 100 people. the Holy Spirit told me all the pastors wanted to fire me, but my section chief wanted to put me on probation. they had me leave the room, while they talked, then called me back in the room and told me they were going to put me on probation and help me if I would move my church to another town. I told them that I did not choose my location, the Holy Spirit had chosen it, and I would pray about it, then one of the pastors said: If I was not careful I would end up on the non-denominational garbage heap. and then they went after me that when I was an evangelist, I would go to any church that would invite me because the Holy Spirit called me. and the Assembly of God allowed me to carry their credentials because healing and miracles followed me. and when that pastor said that, I knew he did not know Jesus, he was just like my dad. He had a spirit of a bully and hated Jesus and his Holy Spirit. And He did not love his brothers like Jesus commanded and that my sister church had four pastors. I was the maintenance man, care taker, cut the grass. Janitor, Sunday school teacher, and pastor, after we got going, I had volunteers to help me. I never accepted pay for my Ministry, because the Holy Spirit did all the work. he would just show me in my spirit where and how someone was being attacked and I would tell them. that would give them faith to be healed or receive their miracle they needed. So I came to the conclusion, that the Assembly of God is a very good denomination, but they have minsters that are rude bullies, and greedy. they have pastors that are legalism just like that were constantly confronting Jesus over the law. they were hostile to me because they had never seen my ministry and we have to forgive them and pray for them, these men were just immature, and someone needs to teach them about the real Jesus Christ that taught us to be generous, and to help one another. they were just like the world that hated one another. for we are called to a higher standard,

in the year 2000 when Jesus came to my house, he was very complimentary to me that I was eager to help others and I wanted everyone to be able to receive his praise, because I could not understand how a man that is servant of Jesus could call their brothers a garbage heap just because they are in another church. you see, they looked down on me because I was called like Peter, John, James, and Peter. because Peter said in Acts 3:6 I do not have silver or gold, but what I have I give to you in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, Walk, do you think that cripple man would rather have had silver or Gold, or be able to walk? but they turned their nose up at me, because I obeyed the Holy Spirit and opened a new church that was smaller than my sister church of 1400, they probably didn’t know I was running close to 100 people. what they also didn’t know was my state superintendent had my sister church's pastor bring in an Evangelist to overcome my ministry,. he did the same thing that he did to the PTL club that my superintendent went to prison over. he had become a pastor at the PTL who was put on probation because he was sick, and later died from his illness. You see, he liked the other evangelist because he raised a lot of money. I always wondered if he would rather have money or be healed from his Illness. I Noticed that he was put on probation like he ordered me to be put on probation for obeying the Holy Spirit, I wonder how he will answer when he stands before the great white throne of judgement seat and Jesus asks him why he hindered his servant.

you see on May 31, 2000 the Holy Spirit had me walk around First Assembly of God three times and said not to set one foot on the property, until the third time around then go to the front door, then walk back to the street wiping the dust from your shoes and when you get to the street say in the name of Jesus Christ: you give this church back to God.

My last gift of the Holy Spirit was the gift of discerning of Spirits, and as I was walking around the property I saw the Spirit of adultery, the spirit of witchcraft, and the spirit of homosexuality and I was puzzled until 2014 when my wife died. the Holy Spirit told me that the time was short, to publish the book ‘prophet of God write this down’ that he had me write in 2000, it proves that I’m his Prophet, because everything I wrote was getting ready to happen, then I wrote my first blog, how the democrats were taking bribes, from the drug cartels to smuggle drugs and human trafficking into America because it was cheaper than buying boats and planes and submarines. that's why our legal system is always against the conservative, because they're being paid to be against them by the democratic party. In 2015 I found out where the spirit of witchcraft came from, that Evangelist that the state superintendent sent into combat my ministry, was a psychic, which is witchcraft that manipulate others. for instance, he would stand on stage and say: there's someone in this section that has a thousand dollars, and the Lord says give it to him, and he will give will give back 50,000.00 and I would never talk about money because I grew up poor. I knew that people needed what little they had. when I was pastoring we had a box in the back of the church And people were encouraged to give but never manipulated. I would teach giving and let them know that we had rent, electric bills, phone bills, but that's as far I would go.

we need to understand that book was never intended to be a best seller but to let everyone know that I’m Jesus’s prophet because no man can tell anyone the future unless God is talking to him, for instance, in 2000 I wrote that our nation would become a banana Republic and chaos in our streets, and turn on anyone with a level head, and lean toward socialism which is atheism, and hyperinflation, and anti-Semitism on our college campuses. then in August 2019, I wrote about a dream I had where a younger man attacked me in my driveway and was much stronger than me and I cried out to Jesus to help me, I remember thinking if I would have been between age of 14 and 60, I would have been stronger than him, but I was 76 years old, and the Holy Spirt told me to use my words, and I thought what words. Then I said be blinded in the name of Jesus and blood shot from his eyes, he begin to cry and began staggering around my driveway. the next day I saw that same man on Fox News burning Bibles and the American Flag. he was an executive at Dominion voting systems. I named him in 2019 in my Blog. Then about a week later, I saw him, in my spirit. he was visiting city hall in Chicago selling access to their voting machines.

The thing that upsets me is when a jury awarded E. Jean Carrol 83.3 million for Trump raping her in a dressing room at a department store which he claimed he had never seen in his life. I want everyone to remember these 12 men or women and that judge. she was asking for five million, I had a very close friend text me and tell me that he didn’t think he could vote for Trump because he was a democrat. he was thinking about voting for Trump because he did not like the way the democrats were harassing Trump. I believe E Jean Carrol is a democratic plant to try to rape Trump, by defaming, and stealing his money from him, I have seen pictures of her and pictures Melania. it would be going backward for Donald and for a man of his discipline who works as hard as Donald Trump. he would not rape a woman. He is too busy in his own mind to even lust after another woman. If I was that Judge, or on that Jury, I would be scared to death, because in Rev 10:8-9 “Then the voice which I heard from the heaven spoke to me again and said, Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth. “And I went to the angel and said to him, Give me the little book. And he said to me, Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.” John is talking about the prayer bowls that have been prepared for this day that is a mixture of the saint’s prayers, and God’s Anger.


In Nov 2, 2023 I wrote a blog called Good VS Evil and why no one is afraid of Jesus Christ! I volunteer to pastor any Church in central Ill, and have not received any invitations, so, I decided to make myself available to any Church in central Illinois for a one day service so Our Lord's Revival can begin, The Holy Spirit offered me 100 acres in Florida to open a new Church, that would, have been a large mega church and I asked the Holy Spirit if he was telling me to go, or was it my decision, he answered telling me it was my decision, he knew I wanted to stay in Central Illinois with my children and Grandchildren. he just wanted people to see my ministry, I could just go into different churches and have someone with a camera phone take video and put it on YouTube or Rumble, the Holy Spirit wants the world; to see Broken bones Healed, and Miracles because He's getting ready to come for his Church and you are not ready. because Just like my Blog The seven Church’s thought their denomination was their Lord and Jesus was the only one on that cross, Just like me I can only preach the truth, then the Holy Spirit does all the healing and miracles in the name of Jesus Christ The one and only Son of God! and just to let you know I ask for just one day at a time, I do not want to hold two days or a week's revival. So, if you want to invite me email me at mygodlives.net@gmail.com and to reach my web page just google all one word mygodlives.net
