The Zeal of My Father’s House consumed Me

Glory days in an age of Devine happenings, as blessings profusely abound on My own. For a Greater Boaz has arrived fulling the Earth with His immense Grace and Fulness. Amen
And the Glory of the Lord shall fill the Earth and His Grace and Mercy shall flourish in dry places giving life to the dead. Oil from the face of God will shine among the living. And there shall rise up territories restored (lost promises), returning in the likeness of His Power.
But a jealousy will rise up in some hearts seeing God’s Great Goodness on one and not the other. And many will hear stories of God intervening, restoring the lost, freeing the captive to walk in total freedom.
I will be seen among the outcast, for a renewal will begin as Salvation embraces men’s souls and they return to their first love being filled with My Presence. Revival in ‘camps’ will be heard as I visit and walk again in the desert where jackals once prowled. A return to Pentecost as the Holy Spirit will rest on top of men’s heads and baptisms will be common among the outcasts of society who have been abandoned. You will hear rumblings here and there revival breaking out in odd places. For I will break out of the walls that have kept the trash of society at bay. You’ll hear the Lord visiting the outcast living under bridges, city streets and alleys where darkness once reigned.
Great revivalist will see and bear witness to the authenticity of the Spirit’s work. Many will come running along side joining the work of the Lord. Amen
And children will be visited with Holy visitations attesting, “The Lord is among us”. Manifestations upon Manifestations will prove the validity of miracles seen. Prophetic words pouring out of innocence mouths, as children stand before the congregation announcing the word of the Lord with such accuracy, the walls will shake with the Presence of God Himself.
Expand your mind, be open and receive all the Glory of the Lord because I doing a new thing in the Earth. For time and destiny has entered into ‘All Things New”.
Holy, Holy is the Lord. For I shake the Earth and Heaven and if not prepared, you will fall. I cannot restrain Myself any longer, for a Holy passion is rising up within Me, and I am consumed with zeal for My Father’s House!
for zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
Jesus had just proved Himself to be very zealous for the house (or temple) of the Lord. He had “cleansed” the temple of the wicked men who were extorting and cheating worshipers: “When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, ‘Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!’”Not only was Jesus’ zeal consuming in that it caused Him to take radical action, but it set Him on a collision course with the Jewish leadership that eventually ended in their delivering Him to Pilate for crucifixion.

His jealousy for the honour of God’s house was like a consuming fire within him. Cp. Psalm 119:139; Psalm 39:3; Jeremiah 20:9.
In the former case the reference may be to the burning indignation which was stirred by the sight of abominations such as those which Ezekiel describes as polluting the Temple (ch. 8); and it is noteworthy that he particularly mentions “the image of jealousy which provoketh to jealousy,” i.e. some image or symbol which was a direct challenge of the “jealous God” who could brook no rival, and which must have stirred the grief and indignation of His faithful servants. (2) In the latter case it is the general condition of the nation, the contrast between its calling to be a holy nation and the universal corruption prevalent, which stirs his deepest emotion.
John 2:16 -17
16To those selling doves He said, “Get these out of here! How dare you turn My Father’s house into a marketplace!” 17His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”
Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
2:12-22 The first public work in which we find Christ engaged, was driving from the temple the traders whom the covetous priests and rulers encouraged to make a market-place of its courts. Those now make God’s house a house of merchandise, whose minds are filled with cares about worldly business when attending religious exercises, or who perform Divine offices for love of gain.
My zeal has consumed me because my foes forget Your words.
Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
Zeal against sin should constrain us to do what we can against it, at least to do more in religion ourselves. Our love to the word of God is evidence of our love to God, because it is designed to make us partake his holiness.
