Appreciate your thoughts on the 2 temple cleansings.
Did you know there were 2?
And those castles made of sand,
fall into the sea.....................

yes John 2 is at the beginning, when the other records of cleansing are at the end.
well , i don't know for sure , what is sure is that sanctification is an ongoing process. When we stop walking , we go backwards and weird stuff creeps in.
In 2 or 3 years, a lot of stuff and compromise can creep in.
also, that could be a hint to the ministry and work of the Holy Spirit through the age of the Church , with the two comings of Jesus at each end of this age.
"Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts. [Malachi 3:1 New American Standard Bible]
I like what is being said here "the Lord will suddenly come to His temple".
When Jesus came the 1st time , the believers received His Holy Spirit who cleanses the temple, for He is Holy. We are co-workers with the Holy Spirit
the Holy Spirit Himself exhorts the believers to be ready for the 2nd coming of Jesus in power and glory. The bride will prepare herself for the Bridegroom.
And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come. And let him that hears say, Come". And let him that is thirsty come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely".
We were thirsty & hungry for righteousness , mercy , truth , and purity when we first came to Jesus. Are we still thirsty and hungry ?

Antiochus IV’s desecration of the temple and mount was cleansed by the Macabees who revolted against Greek rule
11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
11:34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.
11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
The little horn’s desecration of the mount [court] “without” the temple [Revelation 11:1-2] will be cleansed at the end of this present age
8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
8:10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.
8:12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days [1150 mornings and evenings]; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
[the little horn will invade at the middle of the 70th week decreed, it will take 110 days to complete the setting of the abomination of desolation up on the temple mount .... the next 1150 days will consumate the second 1260 days of the 70th week during which the little horn will rule for 42 months] Daniel 12:7-12; Revelation 11:2]
[The Lord will then rout the little horn and his followers and destroy their kingdom in the next 30 days]
[The end time vision is repeated with more detail]
8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
8:26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days
