Why did Hashem find it necessary to instruct Yisrael to bring the Korban Pesach?

1.

Rashi and Ramban: Because Hashem initially told them 1 them that they would bring the Korban Pesach when they entered Eretz Yisrael.

2.

Rashbam: Because Pesach Mitzrayim lasted only one day and the Korban Pesach was different than it was originally intended to be brought. 2 It was therefore necessary to tell them to bring it in the regular manner.

3.

Seforno: In spite of the Simchah of the eighth day of the Milu'im and the Chanukas ha'Mizbe'ach, they were to bring the Korban Pesach. 3

Having told them that they would bring the Korban Pesach after they entered Eretz Yisrael, why did He command them to bring it now?
