The disciples took for granted the fact that the Lord would eat the Passover, even though, at this time, He was being persecuted by the chief priests, and His life was in danger.
1CO 5:7, TLJC was the true Passover lamb that the disciples were about to learn to eat, in the spiritual realm.
Before a sacred ordinance there must be preparation.
1CO 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
The Lord did not have a place of His own to eat the Passover.
Among all the palaces in Israel there was none for Israel's king; But this didn't stop Him from celebrating the Passover.
It is the spiritual significance of the Passover or the Lord's supper that counts, not the location of the celebration.
The lamb speaks of TLJC as the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.The bread speaks of TLJC who is the bread of life.
The sauce speaks of the baptism of the cup of TLJC being baptized or identified with the sins of the whole world.
The eating of these things speaks of faith in Christ.
Ritual without reality is meaningless.
The 11 disciples who are saved are also eating the Passover lamb and they also do not understand what they're doing but that's because of their NVTD.
It is possible for a hypocrite to go through the world, not only undiscovered, but unsuspected.
MAT 25:40 "Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me"
Judas is the type of individual who condemns others and justifies himself before men.
The 19 letter of the Hebrew Alphabet which is the Qoph file - q = the back of the head and it represents the subconscious and the memory center.
Our subconscious mind is like a trash container, or for many others, a like a dumpster, a place where we dump the garbage in our soul from the past decisions we have made.
Many people have things in their life that are hidden and they are afraid to deal with them openly because of guilt, condemnation and embarrassment - they suppress these in the subconscious of the soul.
The writer of Psa 119 has stored up in his subconscious mind, certain things or certain experiences that he does not want to remember.
Qal perfect of qara which is Qaaraa'tiy - yt!arò`q* = the subconscious and it means to cry out, to shout out.
Natsar meaning to guard, to protect, maintain, obey, to preserve, to guard from dangers.
The subconscious is the garbage dumpster of the soul that stores up our guilt, fear, worry, insecurity...and many of the mistakeswe've made in the past.
PSA 107:20 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.
MAT 5:28 but I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust for her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Everyone has a dumping place for things they do not like but don't know whether to throw them away, give them away, or how to get rid of them.
Mercy for the past, grace for the present.
Qoph-file = subconscious - here is a person who had an experience in his youth that could have given him nightmares for the rest of his life....but doctrine kept him clean and un-perverted.
The Piel perfect of qudem = <d#q# - to look forward to something; to recall what he was taught in the past; to confront, to meet his problems face to face.
Denial is a defense mechanism whereby a person fails to acknowledge some aspect of external reality that is obvious and apparent to others.
PRO 30:12 There is a kind who is pure in his own eyes, Yet is not washed from his filthiness.

When God hears prayer according to His lovingkindness, He overlooks the imperfections Of man.

LEV 19:29, it refers to making your child perform sexual acts.
LEV 20:14; it refers to adultery even with your mother-in-law.
JDG 20:6, it refers to a brutal and disgusting rape.
JDG 20:6 "And I took hold of my concubine and cut her in pieces and sent her throughout the land of Israel's inheritance; for they have committed a lewd and disgraceful act in Israel.
In JOB 17:11. it means to be torn or ripped apart.
In JOB 31:11, it speaks of lustful crimes.
In JER 13:27, it speaks of having others treat you like a prostitute.

Doctrine removed his scars even though his body was abused his soul remained unharmed.
He is saying that he has learned God's testimonies in the past and he now realizes that they were given from omniscience or "prolegos - before the moment needed, the word is definitely given."
PSA 19:12 Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.
There is a secret closet in every heart where the soul stores up its skeletons and in many cases some refuse to even admit that there's a problem.
At times, even those nearest and dearest and closest to us do not know of these hidden things.
These things are totally different and contrary to the character of the individual and therefore are suppressed and hidden in the secret chamber of men's hearts.
They hinder and sometimes even destroy a believers confidence with their relationship with God.
1CO 4:4 For I am conscious of nothing against myself, yet I am not by this acquitted; but the one who examines me is the Lord.
Many believers have skeletons in their closet or sometimes buried away in their subconscious also known as a secret room which is very confidential, private, and undisclosed.
EPH 4:27 says and do not give a place to the devil. - place = topaz which means a room.
PRO 2:10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your [entire] soul; = including your subconscious.
PRO 24:4 And by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
ECC 7:12 for wisdom is protection just as money is protection. But the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the souls of its possessors.
PRO 19:8 he who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who keeps understanding will find good.
ISA 5:13 Therefore My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge;
HOS 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Just as doctrine gives the rooms of the soul pleasure and freedom, a lack of doctrine in the rooms of the soul produces slavery and bondage.
PSA 139:23-24, Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.
