Betrayal of Jesus

Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. Matthew 26:14-15

Judas sold the Son of God for thirty pieces of silver, which is equivalent to about $600 today. Judas sold his soul to the devil, what does it profit a man to gain the world but to lose his soul? Judas was overcome by his lust for money and became a puppet for Satans scheme to kill Jesus

Unfortunately for Satan and the rest of the world, they are going to find out that Jesus has overcome the grave, he is the Resurrection and he will reign forever. Satan and his followers are about to be defeated forever at the cross

The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born. Matthew 26:24

Judas was going to learn the hard way what happens when you betray God and follow Satan. He tried to give the silver back, but the blood was already on his hands. He was tormented by demons continually until he lost his mind and hung himself on a tree.

Think about what Judas gave up, what his life could have been. He was in the inner circle with the King of Kings, he could have had eternal life with peace and prosperity. Instead he followed the deceptions of Satan and ended up broken, defeated, and destroyed. Don’t end up like Judas, don’t betray your Lord and Savior. Satan only wants to destroy you, but Jesus wants to save you and give you eternal life Amen

    Judgement on Judas is harsh as it was prophesied that Jesus would be betrayed and the action of Judas was so as to achieve that prophesy. But the real culprits were the Pharisees, the High Priest and Herod and Pontius Pilate! These were the ones seeking how to destroy the son of man as they saw him as a threat to their earthly power!
