It's interesting to note the collapse of the dollar in your link. This happened in 2008. When Jesus first enters the temple, he turns the tables of
the moneychangers. There were three groups Jesus condemned: False Priests, Builders (Masons) and Moneychangers.
What is a financial table and how is it turned? The wording of the passage is critical.
12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the
benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it
‘a den of robbers.’” 14 The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he healed them. 15 But when the chief riests and the teachers of
the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple courts, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant.
Those who sell doves are selling peace falsely. A bench that is overturned means they are now active and not at rest. The tables are turned when a
surplus becomes a massive debt. What was this event marking? The crowing of the King. Hosanna Hosanna in the highest is what the crowd was
proclaiming as they waved their palm branches at the Passover Feast.
John the Baptist said this to the Experts who perverted the law for gain. They were coming to be baptized.
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you
to flee from the coming wrath? 8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance.
9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children
for Abraham. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the
What is baptism? Immersion of the soul into the water to make the sacrifice in the temple. The temple is the body and the sacrifice represents
overcoming trials and finding a love for God in the process. Bearing fruit means turning from sin. Instead, they corrupted the temple and rejected
the cornerstone by building their own temple for commerce and trade. The Builders (Masons) are pictured here. Notice that water puts out fire. John
the Baptist said they would not get the water. They will, instead, be baptized by fire and Spirit.
Jesus looked directly at them and asked, "Then what is the meaning of that which is written: "'The stone the builders rejected has become the
Peter represents the False Church (Synagog of Satan).
18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (Petros), and upon this rock (Petra) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not
prevail against it.
Petros is the smaller stone that can be moved. Petra (True Church) is built on the beadrock of Christ. He is the true Cornerstone (Capstone of the
