The Judas of today - Cristiane Cardoso - English | Cristiane Cardoso - English

Have you stopped to think why Judas was chosen as one of the twelve disciples of Jesus? Would our Lord have chosen someone who had bad intentions in his heart about Him? Of course not.

Judas, like the rest of the disciples, had his weaknesses and by being called to be discipled by the Lord Jesus, he was tempted by the devil, just like the others, but contrary to them, he did not seek for help, quite the opposite, he hid his weakness. We see this clearly when he rebuked Mary, the sister of Lazarus, who poured out a fragrant oil on the Lord Jesus’ feet and washed them with her hair…

“Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” John 12.5

Just look at that DEJAVU! How many people say this same thing when they speak about the Temples of the UCKG? ANYWAY, the Sacred Text made sure to show what Judas truly meant to say in his heart at that moment…

“This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.” John 12.6

This was the main characteristic that led Judas to become the son of perdition… he did not seek for help and if that wasn’t enough, he pretended to be someone he was not, a hypocrite. He betrayed the Lord with a kiss on the cheek… he could’ve pointed the finger to himself but he didn’t, he decided to kiss Him… just like many Judas of today, who make it a point to do exactly the opposite of what they really mean to do behind their back…

But they were not born this way, they were not always Judas. The flaw is in their lack of sincerity.

And isn’t this how the 21st century society behaves? The most common thing today is to be fake, use fake items, spread fakeness… fake news, anonymous emails, fake profiles, fake movements (where no one has the right to disagree, only agree), fake bodies, you get the point… we are in the era of Judas, the era of the Antichrist, of the deceiving spirit, when actually it’s something from the past and almost everybody lies… almost… there are still those who decided to live the truth, even if it’s only found in the Shelter of the Most High…

Those who live in fakeness, be careful! It’s better to expose your weakness, go through a period of shame and ask for help instead of covering it and losing your salvation, which was the case with Judas and many other Judas’ out there…

In the faith of the Shelter of the Most High.
