In Matthew 21 we see Jesus enter the temple of God, and He violently “drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves” (Matt. 21:12).  And He proclaimed God’s temple was to be a “house of prayer” and not the “den of thieves” they had made it (Matt. 21:13).  And once that cleansing was done, something amazing happened.

Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them (Matt. 21:14).

Did you catch that?  First, a cleansing to turn the temple into a house of purity.  Next, the declaration that His house is a house of prayer.  Then, it becomes a house of power when the blind and lame are healed “in the temple” (Matt. 21:14).  And finally, it becomes a house of praise (Matt. 21:16).

Could the same thing happen to you?  Absolutely.  Keep listening and find out how.

The following is a study on Matthew 21:12-16.
