Today it would be healings, favors, and purgatory John 2:13-22
Keyword: The Chronological order of the life of Our Christ
Immediately after leaving Capernaum, Jesus went to Jerusalem. With Him went His disciples. There He found those who served money more than God polluting the Holy Temple.
13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14 and found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And when He had made a scourge of small cords, He drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not My Father's house an house of merchandise. 17 And His disciples remembered that it was written, THE ZEAL OF THINE HOUSE HATH EATEN ME UP (Psalm 69:9).
18 Then answered the Jews, and said unto Him, "What sign shewest Thou unto us, seeing that Thou doest these things?" 19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy This temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, "Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt Thou rear it up in three days?" *21 But He spake of the temple of His body. 22 When therefore He was risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. (*21 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (1 Corinthians 3:16&17 ACP/KJV))
If Jesus returned today to cleanse the church, He would find a different brand of money changers. Ones just as bad, just as corrupt, just as insidious and dangerous to those seeking Christ and Salvation. He would find those who peddled healings and purgatory, those who peddled false interpretations of His Holy Word, those who peddled lies for favors, insidious people, people destined for the lake of fire and determined to take as many with them as possible.
Let us look at Romans chapter fifteen:
We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbor for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as it is written, THE REPROACHES OF THEM THAT REPROACHED THEE FELL ON ME. For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may, with one mind and one mouth, glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: And that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy; as it is written: FOR THIS CAUSE I WILL CONFESS TO THEE AMONG THE GENTILES, AND SING UNTO THY NAME (Psalm 18:49). And again He saith, REJOICE, YE GENTILES, WITH HIS PEOPLE (Deuteronomy 32:43). And again, PRAISE THE LORD, ALL YE GENTILES; AND LAUD HIM, ALL YE PEOPLE(Ps 117:1). And again, Esaias saith, THERE SHALL BE A ROOT OF JESSE, AND HE THAT SHALL RISE TO REIGN OVER THE GENTILES; IN HIM SHALL THE GENTILES TRUS.
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:1-13 ACP/KJV
What we learn from Romans is that what Jesus did in the temple in John chapter two, we must do, first in our hearts and then in our churches. We must not compromise our beliefs, we must not water down what God said, we must not water down our Christian walk and life to satisfy the lukewarm nature of the world, our society, our nation, friends, and/or family. Just as Jesus cleansed the temple so must we cleanse our lives, our homes, and our churches.
Look in John 2: 15 And when He had made a scourge of small cords, He drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables;
Jesus made a whip. He used that whip to drive out of the Temple, those who sold and their products. Then He overthrew their tables. Those sellers did not have the entire Bible as we have today. Before I ask you if you think it will go any easier on the sellers today, let me remind you of this:
Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. Matthew 11:21-24 ACP/KJV
Do you think Jesus will say to the money changers of our time, woe unto you money changer, for had the money changers of AD31 had the entire Bible and books like Foxe's Martyrs and Pilgrims Progress, they would have repented and wallowed in ashes dressed in sack cloth. I do.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
