They’d wrongly established themselves in the Temple, and were disrupting the worship of God. So He drove these merchants out of the temple, including the animals. He also overturned the tables of the money changers, symbolically cleansing the temple and judging its leaders. He said, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" John 2:16.
The Jews answered and said to Him, "What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?"
Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." But He was speaking of the temple of His body. "Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said." John 2:22
What’s that my friend you’ve to believe? Believe the Scriptures and the Word which Jesus had said - Yes that remember always. Don’t only remember sermons.The disciples also remembered that it was written, "Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up." It is written, "But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you." Galatians 4:18.
Paul asks, "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are." 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.
God dwells in you, and He walks in you.
