The Treason Of Judas
Judas Iscariot is infamously known as the betrayer of Jesus Christ (see the Fact Finder question below), but there were others among the disciples of Christ "who should betray him":
"6:60 Many therefore of his disciples [see Disciples and Apostles], when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
"Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the King"
Betrayers did not end with the high treason that they committed against Christ the King (see Israelite Monarchy - The Messiah); other Satanic rebels from that time on have done the same with and within the King's Church ("church" means called out ones; see What Is The Church?), the loyal people who obey and worship the King of the Kingdom of God.
The apostle Peter (who witnessed Judas' act of treason and tried to defend His Majesty from the mob that Judas led to seize and murder Him; see Malchus) made the direct connection between Christ's Church and Christ the King (his "honour the king" was surely not ultimately speaking of the pagan Roman emperor, the foreign dictator who had taken over the land of Israel).
"2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light" (1 Peter 2:9 KJV)
Murder and treason have been capital offenses from the most ancient times. They still shall be in the future. All rebels are going to be fried into ash.
"2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies [see Damnation], even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not." (2 Peter 2:1-3 KJV)
Fact Finder: Was Judas Iscariot prophesied to do what he did, centuries before he did it? Why was there a "Judas"?
