Is Judas going to heaven?

The question of Judas going to heaven seems to be a big discussion over the years.

For those who don’t know Judas, here is a summary of who he was:

  • One of the twelve disciples of Jesus’ inner circle (Luke 6:12-16 has him as the last one chosen);
  • He was the treasurer for the group but was also seen as a theif of the money (John 12:4-6);
  • Jesus identified him as a devil (John 6:70-71);
  • A follower of Christ, but not a believer as his life provided an open door for Satan to overtake him and enter within him (Luke 22:3; John 13:27);
  • Betrayed Jesus by guiding the Pharisees to his location and identifying Jesus by a kiss (Mark 3:19; Matthew 26:47-50);
  • A friend of Jesus whose betrayal was prophesied in the Old Testament (Psalm 41:9; Zechariah 11:12);
  • First disciple to die (he committed suicide – Matthew 27:5);
  • His actions fulfilled scripture (Acts 1:16).

What do you think? Is he going to heaven or hell?

As human beings, we are naturally knowledge seekers and as we say love saying at home “they just love minding other people’s business”.

When impressed upon with this question this week, I really had to think about it. As a woman who loves supporting the underdog, the oppressed, the ridiculed, or the sinner who thinks God can’t save them… my heart wants to reach out to Judas and the other people like him who are out there.

But as soon as that thought took root I felt as if the Lord was telling me to stop and don’t even go there! It is why we all have a choice. We can be a ‘follower’ of Jesus like Judas where we attend church every weekend, listen to the sermons, read the word and even pray. The bible says that prior to Judas betraying Jesus he was overcome by Satan. Meaning he was possessed (controlled) by him.

If Jesus hasn’t filled our heart, soul and mind in that we believe and trust that HE alone is our Savior then we are open to the devil attacks and him overcoming us.

We are encouraged in 2 Corinthians 13:5 to “examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?” 

Food for thought: Is it important that we know whether Judas will make it to heaven? It shouldn’t be. Test yourselves and ensure YOU are in the faith!

Prayer: Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world, have mercy upon us. Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world, have mercy upon us. Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world, grant us thy peace. Amen

May the God of grace, mercy and peace be with you.

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
