Mark 14:12-17 (ASV)
12 And on the first day of unleavened bread, when they sacrificed the passover, his disciples say unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and make ready that thou mayest eat the passover?
13 And he sendeth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him;
14 and wheresoever he shall enter in, say to the master of the house, The Teacher saith, Where is my guest-chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
15 And he will himself show you a large upper room furnished and ready: and there make ready for us.
16 And the disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
17 And when it was evening he cometh with the twelve.




Lu 22:8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.
11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make
ready.



WHAT DETAILS DID JESUS LEAVE OUT. JESUS LEFT OUT THE NAME OF THE GUY WHOSE HOUSE THEY WOULD USE AND ALSO THE ADDRESS OF THE HOUSE.



IT IS OBVIOUS THOUGH THAT JESUS DID IN FACT PREARRANGE THIS PLACE FOR THE PASSOVER FOR JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES. JESUS REALLY DESIRED TO EAT THE PASSOVER.



LUKE 22:14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: {With desire...: or, I have heartily desired}
16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
(KJV)



SO JESUS HAD PREARRANGED THIS. IT MAY HAVE HAPPENED SOMETIME WHEN THEY WERE IN JERUSALEM AND A CLOSET FOLLOWER CAME AND SAID IF YOU EVER NEED A ROOM JUST LET ME KNOW. WE KNOW THAT HE WAS A FOLLOWER BECAUSE JESUS TELLS PETER AND JOHN TO CALL HIM TEACHER OR MASTER. WHETHER THIS PREARRANGEMENT JUST NATURALLY HAPPENED OR SUPERNATURALLY HAPPENED, JESUS MADE THE ARRANGEMENT.



NOTICE ALSO JESUS ALSO SAID YOU WILL FIND THE ROOM FURNISHED. HAVING ALL THE FURNITURE NECESSARY AND THE POTS AND PANS NECESSARY TO PREPARE THE MEAL.



YET HE DIDN'T MENTION THE ADDRESS OR THE STREET THE HOUSE WAS ON. OR THE GUY'S NAME. WHEN YOU GET TO TOWN YOU WILL SEE A GUY CARRYING A WATER POT OR PITCHER TOWARD YOU. FOLLOW HIM DON'T TALK TO HIM JUST FOLLOW HIM HOME.



EITHER PETER AND JOHN DIDN'T HAVE A GPS AND WERE HORRIBLE AT FOLLOWING INSTRUCTION OR THERE WAS ANOTHER REASON. EVERY DETAIL IS PLANNED AND PROTECTED.



14 and wheresoever he shall enter in, say to the master of the house, The Teacher saith, Where is my guest-chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?



I WOULD VENTURE TO SAY THAT THE OWNER OF THE HOUSE WAS NOT THE ONE CARRYING THE WATER. MAYBE IT WAS BUT I BET NOT. THEY WERE TO FOLLOW HIM INTO THE HOUSE AND ASK THE MASTER OF THE HOUSE OR THE GOOD MAN OF THE HOUSE.
15 And he will himself show you a large upper room furnished and ready: and there make ready for us.



NOTICE AGAIN JESUS SAID YOU WILL FIND THE ROOM FURNISHED. HAVING ALL THE FURNITURE NECESSARY AND THE POTS AND PANS NECESSARY TO PREPARE THE MEAL.


16 And the disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
17 And when it was evening he cometh with the twelve.



SO WHY DIDN'T HE SAY GO TO JOHN THOMPSON'S HOUSE OR TOMMY WILSON'S HOUSE?

Mr 14:16 And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
17 And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
18 And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me.
19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?
20 And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.
21 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
(KJV)



Joh 13:21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.
24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. {sop: or, morsel}
27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
29 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
(KJV)





HERE WE HAVE THE REASON JESUS DIDN'T TELL PETER AND JOHN WHERE TO SET UP THE PASSOVER MEAL.



JESUS REALLY DESIRED TO SHARE THE PASSOVER MEAL WITH HIS 12 APOSTLES.



KNOWING HE WOULD BE BETRAYED AND WHO WOULD BETRAY HIM, JESUS PREVENTED JUDAS FROM CAUSING HIM TO MISS THE PASSOVER. JUDAS WAS WAITING FOR AN OPPORTUNE TIME TO BETRAY HIM WITHOUT A RIOT. JESUS ALSO KNOWING THE THOUGHTS OF ALL PEOPLE KNEW JUDAS' PLAN. JESUS THEN TOLD JUDAS WHEN TO BETRAY HIM.

27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.



THIS IS JUST ONE DETAIL THAT JESUS DIDN'T TELL. THE NAME OF THE OWNER OF THE UPPER ROOM WAS NOT A NEED TO KNOW DETAIL.



WHEN YOU THINK OF ALL THE DETAILS THAT JESUS DID SHARE WITH THEM. YOU ALL WILL ABANDON ME TONIGHT. PETER YOU WILL DENY KNOWING ME 3 TIMES TONIGHT.

THAT HE WOULD BE REJECTED ARRESTED BEATEN AND CRUCIFIED, DIE ON A CROSS BE BURIED AND RISE AGAIN ON THE 3RD DAY.





SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME AND YOU.



GOD IS SOVERIGN AND IN CONTROL.



AS A BELIEVER. HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY. AS A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST, AS HIS SERVANT, HOW DID YOU GET HERE.



THROUGH THE METICULOUS PLANNING OF GOD. GOD'S PLAN FULFILLED EVEN THROUGH ALL OUR MISSTEPS AND MISTAKES. GOD'S FOREKNOWLEDGE AND PLANS STILL WORK. BECAUSE HE IS STILL GOD. WE ARE TOLD WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW WHEN WE NEED TO KNOW IT.



Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:



Lu 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.



AFTER PETER DENYIED KNOWING JESUS. PETER WAS CRUSHED. AFTER JESUS' RESURRECTION THE DISCIPLES WERE FISHING AND JESUS HAD FISH COOKING ON THE SHORE. PETER AND DISIPLES CAME TO JESUS ATE WITH HIM AND JESUS THEN REINSTATED PETER AS THE LEADER OF THE APOSTLES. WHEN HE ASKED HIM IF HE LOVED HIM. 3 TIMES JESUS AS PETER DO YOU LOVE ME. 3 TIMES JESUS SAID FEED MY SHEEP LAMBS AND SHEEP.

GOD WILL FINISH THE WORK HE HAS FOR US INSPITE OF OUR FAILURES AND LACK OF COURAGE. WE CAN TRUST HIM AS HIS FOLLOWER. WE CAN TRUST AND OBEY THE DIRECTION OF THE LORD KNOWING WE HAVE ALL THE INFO WE NEED RIGHT NOW.



IF YOU









TO THOSE FROM GALILEE THE JEWISH DAY STARTED AT SUNDOWN AND ENDED THE NEXT SUNDOWN. SO ON THE DAY OF PASSOVER THE 14TH DAY OF NISSAN IN THE EVENING BEFORE MIDNIGHT THE PASSOVER LAMB WAS KILLED. MACARTHUR SAYS THE PASSOVER MEAL FOR JESUS AND THE DISCIPLES FROM GALILEE WAS EATEN ON THURSDAY EVENING. THE JUDEAN JEWS AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS WOULD EAT THEIR PASSOVER MEAL ON FRIDAY EVENNING.



































Lu 22:8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.
11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make
ready. 13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: {With desire...: or, I have heartily desired}
16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
(KJV)
