Each knows a part of God's mind, though, so one or another of them máy know. Even so, when Gandalf and his companions came into Middle Earth, they came in the form of creatures of Earth - old Men - not as Maiar spirits in their full glory and power. They are subject to earthly limitations - so Gandalf may well "know", but can't remember. In any event, he's pretty good at not spilling everything he knows: why dash the beliefs of an old Man needlessly when there would be no particular use in doing so?
