When Jesus cleansed the Temple (Matthew 21:12-17), the blind and the lame were healed, the children cried, “Hosanna,” and everybody was happy-except the chief priests and scribes, who were sore displeased. When there is revival, as indeed there was in this case, something like this always takes place. When the Temple is cleansed and the Lord is in control, there is healing. The children and the childlike rejoice. And the Pharisees always complain. There will always be those religionists who do not want the dead status quo disturbed. But along with the hatred, there will be healing and hosannas. First, however, there must be the cleansing that changes God’s house from a den of thieves to a place of prayer.
