Today is Monday, July 11, 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of Luke 22:3-6.
Then Satan entered into Judas, surnamed Iscariot, who was numbered among the twelve.(Luke 22:3-6)
And immediately Satan entered Judas what happened?
Judas went and connived with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Jesus to them.
In the end, the chief priests and the captains offered Judas a fee and he gave in to betraying his Master.
The spiritual understanding we have from this scripture is that when Satan entered Judas he had some thoughts he used in convincing him to go and commit the sin he did.
Now Judas had seen several times when the Jews tried to kill Jesus and He would miraculously escape. (John 8:59)
Coupled with the fact that he knew how spiritual and powerful our Lord Jesus is.
So Satan told him to go and collect the chief priests and captains the money, and when they come to arrest Jesus and fail; there is no way they will demand the money back from him.
After all, he had played his own part in leading them to Jesus’s hideout.
Judas’ assumption almost materialized when Jesus replied to the soldiers and they all fell to the ground.
Now when He said to them “I am He”, they drew back and fell to the ground.John 18:6.
But his assumption did not hold when the soldiers finally arrested Jesus.
And realizing the deceits of Satan after Jesus was sentenced to death, Judas went and committed suicide; after the chief priests and captions refused to collect the money he returned.
And this is when Satan who entered him left.
Beloved Satan is still entering so many humans today and using them to achieve one evil scheme or another.
And countless of them also end up like Judas; after Satan has completed his mission.
This is the reason why we should always be on guard, and the only way we can do so is by being ready all the time to pay the cost of following Christ.
Pray God to help you resist the devil and all his wiles today.
Dear heavenly Father, I pray that you give me the grace to resist the devil today and always so he will flee from me.
I make my prayer through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
