Matthew 21:12-22 “The Cleaning and the Cursing.”

My sermon notes for Sunday morning, April 10th.  Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. The church provides a live stream of the service each Sunday at 10:30 on Facebook. We also provide the services through YouTube by Sunday afternoon.  You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.


Cleansing the Temple – vv. 12-17

Mal. 3:1-4 – Prophesied over 400 years before.

Why was Jesus so upset?

The temple should have been a place for true worship to take place, but it had turned into a religious business endeavor.

The gentile court was for the gentiles to come and have access to the Temple.  The idea was so that they could come and learn about the ONE TRUE GOD

What are some dangers that we have today?  Have we lost focus on our worship?  Are we here for God or for man?

The level of hypocrisy is astonishing. v. 14

Cursing the Fig Tree – vv. 18-22

The tree was fruitless

Israel was fruitless

A lesson on faith and prayer – vv. 20-22
