So Jesus, knowing all the things that were coming upon Him, went forth and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” John 18:4
Judas sold out Jesus for the world. Judas had his opportunity to be in the inner circle of the Son of God, he got to witness miracles first hand, he even got divine revelation and teachings directly from Christ himself. However this wasn’t enough for him, Satan planted the seed of greed and jealousy into his heart, and he gave up his mortal soul
So when He said to them, “I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground. John 18:6
Notice when Jesus revealed who he was, everyone immediately fell to the ground. This wasn’t just believers, this was Roman soldiers, this was Pharisees, this was officers of the Roman empire. Every knee will bow and tongue will confess Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, even the most wicked will eventually bow down to his authority!
So Jesus said to Peter, “Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it?” John 18:11
Even though Jesus had the power and authority to wipe out the entire Roman empire, he willingly laid down his life for us to be the atonement for our sins. Jesus was obedient even to death, he didn’t stray from the will of our Father God
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? Mark 8:36
What did it profit Judas, to gain 30 pieces of silver, yet to lose his mortal soul? Nothing! He tried to give back the silver and eventually hung himself from the guilt of condemnation. Don’t be a Judas, don’t reject Christ! When you reject Christ , you are killing him on that cross also! Think about It!!
