Threshing during the summer and turning over the tables of the moneylenders

I want to publish 2 ideas that where sent in by readers of the site, Frank and Bill, 2 true brothers in research.

It appears from Daniel 2:35 that this threshing work must occur in summer before the autumn equinox. The word threshing occurs some 38 times in the scriptures but only once it is termed "summer" threshing floor and that is in Daniel 2:35. Plus if you look at the All Scriptures inspired book under threshing you find this interesting bit...

“Threshing instruments pulled by animals speeded up the process and were more thorough than animal hooves alone. (Isa 41:15; Am 1:3) Models used in more modern times are either broad flat heavy sledges with sharp teeth of stone or of iron on their underside or frames that pull heavy cylindrical rollers fitted with knives to cut and break down the grain stalks. Such sledges and roller devices covered an additional swath each round, and the added weight of the driver riding on top increased the effectiveness.? (Compare Isa 28:28)”

Sort of remind you of Daniel 7:7, doesn't it...

7 "After this I kept on beholding in the visions of the night, and, see there! a fourth beast, fearsome and terrible and unusually strong. And it had teeth of iron , big ones . It was devouring and crushing, and what was left it was treading down with its feet. And it was something different from all the [other] beasts that were prior to it, and it had ten horns. (Daniel7)

Sounds exactly like the description of threshing using beasts. They would walk round and round on the stalks until all the grain was knocked off the stalks.

As regards the end of capitalism, perhaps Jesus is turning over the tables of the moneychangers on a global scale after all, his temple is worldwide now! This is followed by overthrowing the seats of those that sell doves (i.e. false religion selling sainthood)…
