Book Excerpt: Cleansing The Temple- Introduction

The Art of the late Rick Griffin

Book II of “Christ’s Kingdom Trilogy” Series

-Cleansing The Temple-

Preparation of the Glorified Bride Unto Full Stature


Several years ago on a TBN ‘Praise the Lord” broadcast, Matt and Laurie Crouch had the wisdom and leading of the Holy Spirit to host and facilitate what they called a Kingdom Roundtable. The entire two hour segment was devoted to allowing three guests: Dr. Mark Chironna, Prophet Kim Clement, and Dr. Lance Wallnau- to speak in depth concerning the reality, manifestation, and expansion of the Lord Jesus Christ’s Kingdom… and its coming here on earth.

These princes of the realm have blessed me immeasurably in their respective ministries. Although it took me an additional eighteen months from that point to gather all my notes, set them in order, and actually begin in earnest my first writing project: Thy Kingdom Come: Here and Now!, I can affirm that this particular broadcast was used of God to compel me to write what He had put on my heart way back in September of 1994.

Habakkuk 2:2&3 (NKJV)… Then the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision, And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it, For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie, Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.

I was lead to record that entire session after watching it on the Internet numerous times. Because of the substantial weight of glory that it carries even now, I will refer to salient points from it in this second book of the series. What I want to stress in this introduction is several points that stood out and are timeless:

  • From Mark: “The Prophetic is an instrument of recovery. It reveals the future of God’s intention from the foundation of the world.”… And, “When you are in the Spirit– you don’t think … you know! This is the reality of the dominion mandate released!”
  • From Kim: “What you seek, you see. What you see, you enter. What you enter you possess. What you possess, you inherit. What you inherit, you can impart.” And, “Most people don’t listen to the future… they listen only to the present… God is eternal so He’s already there! And He desires to let us know what is ahead.”
  • From Lance, in his amazing Destiny by Design teaching said: “There’s a vacuum at the top of the nations… Influence is the name of the game… Favor is connected to God’s assignment… And Destiny is stronger than death!”

The motivation for me to write this volume is the same throughout this Kingdom Trilogy Set: The Preparation of the Bride of our Lord and Savior, God and King- Jesus Christ… blessed be His Holy Name! May we all own the process of growth into our awesome glorious destiny!

Revelation 19:6-9;10b (LSM)… And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult, and let us give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His [Bride] has made herself ready. And it was given to her that she should be clothed in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the saints. And he said to me, Write, Blessed are they who are called to the marriage dinner of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true words of God… Worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.


For deeper insight into how GOD the Father sees His children; to better understand the elementary principles of Christ (Hebrews 6:1-3); the ‘mysteries’ of Christ’s Kingdom; and our individual and corporate calling, commission, and empowerment- please review my first published book and the Table of Contents on the Amazon website linked here via Book Title:  “Thy Kingdom Come- Here and Now!”
