12; The Face of Jesus Christ; Archibald Brown; Espíritu en Movimiento; Maritza Meszaros; Passover; Just as He said;X Mark 14:12-16


And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?  And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.  And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guest-chamber; where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?  And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared:  there make ready for us.  And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them:  and they made ready the passover.

Mark 14:12-16


Getting ready for Passover

Thou sendest forth two disciples

when Jerusalem was full

It was like a game of marbles


Festival of seven days

An innocent lamb to slain

General clear out and clean up

And You treated with disdain


Noone invited You over

None of those You healed or blessed

You who came unto Your own

were not welcome or addressed


You, who received all the sinners,

By sinners were not received,

And in the village of Bethany

No plans seemed to be conceived


The disciples wondered where

to prepare the Feast for Thee

Though while with them You had taught them

to have faith in You and just be


Drawing to the final days…

One more lesson to be learned

Perfect foreknowledge You showed

and all the wheels You could turn


You controlled all circumstances

and You knew what would come next


You knew perfectly the text


Golgotha, the cross, the tomb,

and then magnificent glory

You wanted to let them know

that You had foretold the story


A great trial of their faith…

Ordinary circumstances…

May we do our Master´s word

in each and all daily stances


You sent them to find the place

with twelve weak points in the chain

and they went, following instructions,

under the sun or the rain


You had told them they would meet

a man entering the city

bearing a pitcher of water…

Would we doubt? Oh, what a pity!


They would just follow this man

walking quietly after him

He would guide them to the goodman

Would we doubt? Would we be grim?


You told them to ask the owner

where Your guestchamber was set

The owner would lead the way

Would we doubt?…don´t be upset…


Why is our faith just so weak?

Why is there such unbelief?

Why are we always supposing?

Why do we cause so much grief?


Large upper and furnished room

that would be ready and prepared

Your prediction was exact

It was clear that the owner cared


No announcement was required

The heart was ready to welcome

An elect soul in the city

waiting for You when You´d come


Strange method to locate

Your guestchamber for Passover

Rare method to find a place

in March, July or  October


What a wondrous test of faith

What marvelous exhibition

of Your foreknowledge and power

of Your glory and  Your vision


May we learn to see Your hand

in casual events of life

May we trust and follow You

May our spirit always strive


You foresaw and You foretold

May we always follow Thee

No coincidences…just You…

teaching us so we may see…


May we serve You and be Your instruments

while we use our common sense

May we be ready for You

even when the rope is tense


May the doors of our hearts be

ready to receive Your knock

We will lead You to Your chamber

as we gather with Your flock


May we never doubt again

May our faith grow and be strong

May our love for Thee remain

wide and deep and high and long
