Wouldn’t it be hectic to live in the script, to walk on the stage, to literally live like an actor in the unfolding of a drama that was already written for you? That’s how Jesus lived.
A lot of the supernatural that we experience, we look at as though it’s testimony material to convert the unbeliever. A lot of the supernatural is meant just for you as a normal ordinary part of your life. And I think we ought to be impatient to live there and not settle for less.
Jesus tells His disciples, the last weeks of His life, when you go into the city… His disciples ask where are we going to prepare the Passover? And that is a legitimate question. If we were having a meeting tonight where are we going to have it? Jesus says when you go into the city you’re going to see a man with a jug in his hand, follow him and tell the person in charge of the house that your Master has need of this room. He’ll know what you’re talking about.
Mark 14:13-16: “He sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and you will meet a man carrying a jug of water. Follow him. 14) When he goes into a house, say to its owner that the Teacher asks, ‘Where is my room where I can eat the Passover meal with my disciples?’ 15) Then he will show you a large upstairs room that is furnished and ready. Get everything ready for us there.” 16) So the disciples left and went into the city. They found everything just as Jesus had told them, and they prepared the Passover meal [ISV].”
And by the way another thing we have to take care of today is that I need to ride in on a colt, so I want you two to go down this street and untie a colt that you find that has never been ridden before and if the owner comes out and says to you these words, what are you doing, simply say, the Master has need of it and straight way when He is finished we’ll bring it back. They’ll just work with you.
Luke 19:30-31 & 33-35: “and (Jesus) said, “Go into the village ahead of you. As you enter, you will find a colt tied up that no one has ever ridden. Untie it, and bring it along. (31) if anyone asks you why you are untying it say this: ‘The Lord needs it.'” 33) While they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34) The disciples answered, “The Lord needs it.” 35) Then they brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it, and Jesus sat upon it [ISV].”
I think this is an aspect of the Word of Wisdom in the prophetic realm which sees things before they happen. But did you notice that both of them were not meant as testimonies to the unbelievers. They weren’t even meant for the disciples, “that they might believe on Him”. No, they were living simple ordinary lives while walking with Jesus, and living in the rhythm of the unfolding drama that was already scripted. All the details were prepared before hand. He didn’t get all anxious about what was going to happen tomorrow, because He taught, take no thought for tomorrow.
Matt. 6:34: “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof [KJV].”
Jesus lived in the bubble, a bubble of God’s glory so that within 24 hours what was needed was shown to Him, previewed by Him and He could see it because He went from a rhythm of intimacy and worship and presence and dialogue into living out the script that preceded Him when He was in communion. Or He walked in such away that the script came up while He stood there.
