Easter messages: lessons from the character of Judas Iscariots

Posted on

betrayal of Jesus Judas iscariot

What lessons can we learn from the betrayal of Jesus by one of his disciples- Judas Iscariot? What does the story of Judas Iscariot tell us?

Read Mathew 26.

By Babatope Babalobi babalobi@yahoo.com +2348035897435

  1. Judas was privileged to be one of the twelve disciples that followed Jesus Christ around. He listened to his teaching and preaching’s, yet he was not converted. He betrayed Jesus without cause. The lesson here is that you can never satisfy the world. You can never satisfy your followers, no matter how good you are, there are some people that will hate you without reason.
  2. The love of money, greed, and covetousness remains the root of all evils. Judas received 30 shekels as a reward of his betrayal. If Judas was not promised a monetary reward, if was unlikely he would have agreed to betray Jesus. Be careful how you make money. Run from every filthy lucre.
  3. Another lesson is that you should expect to have a Judas around you. There is popular saying that there is a Judas among every 12 of your disciples or assistants. Watch out for the Judas in your midst and beware of Judases.
  4. Another lesson from the story of Judas is that your enemy is within your household. Your greatest enemies are within your household, within your offices, businesses, and ministries. Jesus was not betrayed by an outsider, but by one of his personal assistants.
  5. Another lesson is that if you are in the spirit and walking with God, He will always reveal the future to you, He will reveal the plans of your enemies, and the conspiracies against you. Jesus perfectly knew Judas was planning and going to betray him, because this has been revealed to him by the spirit. However, he could not resist it because he had to fulfil his destiny.
  6. Another lessons, is that the kiss of the enemy is poison. Judas kissed Jesus to identify him to the accusers/enemies. When you enemies kiss you, know surely he has poisoned you. Therefore it is better to avoid the kiss of the enemy. Don’t negotiate or become friendly with the enemy in order to avoid an evil kiss.
  7. Another lesson is that you should not be bitter or vengeful against your perceived enemies. Jesus still called Judas my friend, and embraced him, when he came with a band of people with swords. Vengeance belongs to God and leave the battles to God.
  8. The last lesson and the most important lesson is that the wages of sin is death. Judas returned back to the elders, the blood money he took to betray Jesus; and he hanged himself. Evil breeds sorrow and grief, and Judas did not leave to fulfil his destiny
  9. Another lesson is that those planning evil with you will not stand with you when the evil backfires. The elders and fellow conspirators that planned evils with Judas and bribed him with 30 shekels refused to take the money back after he became remorseful. They described the 30 shekels that Judas as blood money and refused to return it into the treasury.
  10. The final lesson is that Judas missed a glorious destiny that awaited him because the lure of money, he missed and sold his glory for 30 shekels of silver. All the other eleven disciples later on went to fulfil destiny and became saints. If Judas had not betrayed Judas, perhaps we could have a church named ‘Saint Judas Church’, later on such as we have churches named after Saint Paul, Saint John, and the others.

John 19 vs. 17-18:  17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: 18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

After he was beaten, scourged, slapped and forced to wear a crown of thorns, Jesus was forced to carry the Cross and he was so much burdened by this that at a stage hCrosse could no longer carry it and some one else had to assist him.

CrossThe cross is the symbol of salvation. Jesus was assisted by a passer by to carry the cross Calvary. Even today, workers are still needed in the vineyard to spread the good news to all the ends of the earth. Cross

Are you willing to make yourself available to carry the cross of Jesus?

                                   

Bible Story on Betrayal of Judas Iscariot

Posted on Updated on

 

                                                                                                Judas Iscariot

                                                         

At times like this when we are remembering the cruxification of Jesus Christ on the cross, it is good to remind ourselves of the sufferings, agonies, torture, pain and humiliation he went through to fulfill this ministry.

 

John 18 vs. 3: 1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples. 3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons

 

Jesus Christ suffered emotional wreckage on the way to the cross because he was betrayed by his close aid and friend-Judas Iscariot. A man he had dined and wined with and trusted so much that he was given charge of keeping the purse.

 

If you have been betrayed by some you trusted or a person close to you, then you should also have the forgiving spirit of Jesus, who still called Judas a friend when he came to give him away with a kiss.
