Although Christ never knew sin, he took on and became the sin of all Mankind so that that sin could be nailed with him to the torture stake and the sin taken away from those that put their faith in the Ransom Sacrifice.
Romans 8:3 “What the law could not do since it was limited by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours under sin’s domain, and as a sin offering, in order that the law’s requirement would be accomplished in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
If you continue to walk according to the flesh, you remain under the wrath of Yahweh, because you remain in “sin’s domain.”
Romans 8:1, 2 “Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus, because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.”
“no condemnation” exists ONLY for those that accept the Truth with humble hearts. That is what aligns them with Christ.
Was Jesus an Apostle as well as Yahweh’s Chosen High Priest?
Hebrews 3:1 “Therefore, holy brothers and companions in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession;”
Was it prophesied that one of Christ’s twelve Apostles would be a traitor to him?
Psalms 41:9 “Even my friend in whom I trusted, one who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.”
John 13:10, 11, 18 “One who has bathed,” Jesus told him, “doesn’t need to wash anything except his feet, but he is completely clean. You are clean, but not all of you. For He knew who would betray Him. This is why He said, “You are not all clean. I’m not speaking about all of you; I know those I have chosen. But the Scripture must be fulfilled: The one who eats My bread has raised his heel against Me.”
Compare to Psalms 41:9 on “his heel against Me.” It is all part of a jigsaw that is pieced together throughout the Word.
What was Judas Iscariot labeled?
John 17:12 “While I was with them, I was protecting them by Your name that You have given Me. I guarded them and not one of them is lost, except the son of destruction, so that the Scripture may be fulfilled.”
What is the “destruction” it speaks of concerning “the son of destruction”?
2 Thessalonians 1:9 “These will pay the penalty of everlasting destruction, away from the Lord’s presence and from His glorious strength, in that day when He comes to be glorified by His saints and to be admired by all those who have believed, because our testimony among you was believed.”
Where is “away from the Lord’s presence and from his glorious strength”? Christ has the strength to save from the Wrath of Yahweh because of his Sacrifice; away from the Lord signifies the Orange Plane’s Abyss that becomes the symbolic Lake of Fire. It is not, nor will it ever be a part of Christ’s Kingdom. It will be totally annihilated out of existence with those imprisoned within. That is the “everlasting destruction” of all negative energy. Judas was “lost” according to Christ. Therefore he will not be in the Kingdom.
Will Judas Iscariot be forgiven of such a gross sin? Was Christ right in calling him the “son of destruction”?
Matthew 12:31, 32 “Because of this, I tell you, people will be forgiven every sin and blasphemy, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the one to come.”
Judas not only betrayed Christ, but he also betrayed the Holy Spirit to which he had a calling. With that comes grave responsibility and consequences.
Romans 8:30 “And those He predestined, He also called; and those He called, He also justified; and those He justified, He also glorified.”
To have been called as predestined, and to have been justified and glorified in Mount Zion as one of Christ’s Apostles, and then to betray that calling, is unforgivable in Yahweh’s eyes. Judas Iscariot always had free will to do whatever he chose. Yahweh did not predestine him to sin. Yahweh simply looked ahead in time and saw that he was the one that would do so. As the stream of time advanced, Judas Iscariot fulfilled what Yahweh already knew would happen; but the Creator never forced Judas to betray Christ; that was in his own heart.
Proverbs 21:2 “All the ways of a man seem right to him, but the LORD evaluates the motives.”
When Yahweh looked ahead, he evaluated each of the twelve Apostles motivations of their hearts. Judas Iscariot was seeking present wealth over that of the promised Kingdom. He could have done opposite, but Yahweh knew his heart well enough to forecast the prophesied event that later took place.
Although it is not written in the Scriptures, the dark realms are also considered “away” from the presence of Christ. Those incarcerated might all share the final fate of negative energy. It is Yahweh’s call on any that might be released before the final Judgment.
