Jesus Made a Whip

John 2:15-16 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables. And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make my Father's house a house of merchandise."

Jesus made a whip 

But it wasn't whipping cream

He didn't make a pound cake

With a cute birthday theme

He didn't whip up mashed potatoes 

Or some chocolate soufflé 

He didn't whip up a mousse

And then give it all away

He didn't whip up a gingerbread

With butter and molasses

He didn't pray and multiply it

And distribute it to the masses

It wasn't a whipped frosting 

It was a whip of cords 

Some people don't want to admit it

This whip was the Lord's

He drove out the money changers

The tables He overturned and flipped

I guess you could call it 

Jesus' miracle whip

We don't hear much about this whip

They say Jesus is too nice

But He was angry that His temple

Became a house of merchandise

Hello to the American church 

As we are living out the dream 

We might need the whip again

And I don't mean whipping cream
