"MY FATHER'S HOUSE IS A HOUSE OF PRAYER!"

There was so much excitement in the city,
'The Feast of The Passover' was here!
So many people had travelled to be there,
From places far and near!

The Temple stall holders were happy,
Their monopoly held sway!
They lied and cheated as they bargained...
But they got more than they bargained for that day!

"You nest of vipers!" The young Man Cried,
As He Overturned tables which blocked His Path!
He didn't hurt anyone,
But all who saw it were affected by His Wrath!

"My Father's House IS A House of Prayer!"
The young Man Said as onlookers stood and stared!
Such passion about The House of God,
Since David's time had not flared!

Little by little, The Temple had been turned
Into little more than a market stall...
As moneylenders and farmers
Saw a chance to get rich at the expense of God's Holy Hall!

Anger filled the moneylenders and the farmers,
The Pharisees and Sadducees...
But they dared not lift a finger against Jesus that day,
For His Love of God, the crowd did please!

So... they plotted in the darkness,
For being honest in the light of day was not their way!
They wanted to murder Jesus
Without any further delay!

Trumped up charges to remove enemies,
Was their speciality it would SEEM.
For they got away with it right royally
And managed to have their evil dream!

Yet... their evil minds simply played a part
In The Plan for God to Redeem mankind...
The Agony that they sent Jesus too
Has Enabled millions His Love and Grace to find!

So though evil may SEEM to win for a little while,
God ALWAYS has The Last Word!
His Love for ALL of mankind was Revealed in Jesus
And God is ALWAYS as Good as His Word!
