"And He began to teach and say to them, "Is it not written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE NATIONS - But you have made it a robbers den.' The chief priests and the scribes heard this, and began seeking how to destroy Him; for they were afraid of Him, for the whole crowd was astonished at His teaching." Mark 11:17-18

"Rebellious house, O, My children, rebellious house. Walls of Jasper, walls of clay. All shout the glory of God, yet My people remain defiled and pathetic in their praise of Me. You have allowed evil to consume My holy things. None cry at the gates of My tabernacles. You have lost your first love and now sin reigns where once love for Me ruled."
Chief priests and scribes continue even today to seek how they might destroy Him. Hate, self-exaltation, conceit, arrogance, a desire for power at any cost...replace fear in governments across the world, in many mainline denominations and in the MSM, yet the objective remains the same.
