15 So, after making a whip out of ropes, he drove all [those] with the sheep and cattle out of the temple [ieron], and of the money-changers [kollubisthj] he poured out the coins and overturned the tables [Greek likes to mess with word order for effect].

o`, (ko,lluboj) a small money-changer, N.T. From ko,lluboj
a small coin
A dove stands for a sealed saint or at least a clean saint (with a water baptism). The small coins are saints too, silver money or gold money of God which should be deposited with angelic bankers. So the greater meaning here is the selling of sainthood for a price and even the swapping of changing of saintly covenants for a price. This is a market in sainthood! It applies both to the Roman Catholic Church and to the Watchtower and to Laodicea..
There are people who have swapped from a 1NC to a 2NC or vice versa using these spiritual bureaux de change. These churches have a marketplace for sainthood!
But Jesus overturns their tables and pours out the coins. So all of these transactions are null and void and anyone participating in any of them will lose his angel period.
the tables of the money changers is the church administration losing its
authority over the saints, falling over the saints, becoming the evil slave of
Overturning the benches of those selling doves, is taking away the ability of the church to deal in clean saints. It is therefore the end of a presence, the end of the water baptism of the church.
Driving out those selling sheep and cattle with a whip of ropes, is removing the congregation from the church. This happens after the church has become false.
Not carrying a utensil in the temple is an interesting one. It means that one should not discuss secular work during a congregation meeting.
