Time to Clean House!

Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Greg Laurie begins our series  7 Signs of Jesus with a message called “Time to Clean House!” Together we will take a deep dive in to Jesus turning water into wine, and cleansing of the temple.


Jesus’ first miracle: Water into wine.

Jesus answers our prayers, does what we ask, and comes through for us; but then there are times He comes and cleans house and overturns tables.

  • There are things that make God angry.
  • God cares about His house.
    • If you come to Jesus, He will accept you as you are, but He will not leave you that way.
    • Saul of Tarsus was a murdered, but he became a mighty Apostle.
    • “Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for He guards the lives of His faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”
    • Sometimes we get angry with sinners when we need to be angry with Satan.
    • What angered Jesus?
    • People being kept from God.
  • God gets angry when people are kept from coming to Him.
    • The church exists to glorify God, edify the saints, and evangelize to the world.
    • “The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.” —Abigail Van Buren
  • What does Jesus cleansing the Temple have to do with me?
    • As part of the new covenant, God now lives in the hearts of His people.
    • Paul prayed that “Christ would dwell in our hearts by faith” (Ephesians 3:17).
    • The dwelling place of God (the Temple of God) is you!
    • Perhaps you have sins that have not been confessed, and vices that have not been confronted.
    • Jesus wants access to every room of your house!
    • Jesus wants access to every room to clean properly.
    • Jesus may overturn a table or two, but when it is done, it will be clean!
    • Revival is returning to original condition.
  • Jesus knows everything about you.
  • Jesus will always reveal Himself to the true seeker; but to the fickle, shallow, and insincere, nothing will happen.
    • Jesus Christ is ready to come clean up your life!
