Judas Iscariot

I wonder if at the end of the Tribulation and Jesus is come to begin Judgement, if Judas Iscariot can repent for betraying Jesus and for his suicide? Please Everyone I've asked myself this very question many times, and would love to hear your opinions.

Yours in Christ

Deborah

  • If what ur saying is true, then what about the man who ask for a sip of water? He was in hell, awake, knew everything that was goin on ... that's not from a man's teaching, it is straight from the Word  (Luke 16:22-31) ...

    when people die in their sins they are forever banished from the presence of God to  hell and the lake of fire.  They will go to a place of everlasting shame, contempt, and torment. Matthew 25:41

    Revelation 20:12-20   And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.    And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    The above verse clearly states that every man will be judged ...

    Hell is a very real place, that those who have not accepted Christ as their savior, will go, and the torment there can not be described with words ...

  • No ... the moment u take ur last breath here on earth, u will either go to Heaven or hell ... no 2nd chances, no deals ... it's done and over.

    • Not at that time when the Old covenant of sacrificing animals was transitioning into the Lords Grace and forgiveness and walking by Faith. Jesus went to Hell and preached the New Covenant to the people there. (Hebrews Chapter 8, 9,1Peter 3:18-20, Ephesians 4:8)

      In today's age when most people have heard the Gospel at least ounce if they die unsaved or back slider, they will go to hell. In the Old testament the people heard the preaching of the Abraham covenant and the sacrifice of animals to be righteous. So Jesus went to Hell to preach to them the New covenant of Grace and Faith and the Blood Of Jesus.

  • Please Read revelations Chapter 20.

    The Lord Bless You , In Jesus Name.

  • No, After Jesus went to Heaven there is no repentance for those in Hell already.

    One thing to look at though. Judas went to Hell before Jesus did. the Bible say's that Jesus went to Hell during the days he was in the Grave before his resurrection and preached to the people there. This was done, because of the New Covenant. I believe a unique time in history and one time thing involving the completion of the New Covenant and completed with Jesus entering Heaven and putting his Blood on the Altar in Heaven. The Bible say's he lead captives in his train. So there is a possibility that he could have repented then. He was remorseful when he died. He tried to give the money back and it seems he bought the land to kill himself. ????????

  • Once a person dies, that's it ... the time for repentence and forgiveness is over ... we have to make the decision now ... before its too late!

  • I do not see in the scriptures, even as to a hint that anybody will be given a second chance once they are dead. Once you are dead, then you either go to be with Jesus, or you remain asleep. So, if you are going to use the scriptures to justify an answer, then I can live a 'HELLISH' life, and then once I die, I get a second chance to get into heaven. This is a "FALSE TEACHING". It does not line up with anything that Jesus taught, or any of His disciples, nor did Paul, Silas, nor Barnabas. In the judgment, Jesus will seperate the sheep from the goats, the tares from the wheat. Judas is not going to have a second chance, and neither will you, nor will I. Neither will he be able to repent for what he did, and for committing suicide. I wish it was that easy to live how you want to, commit sin, then get a second chance at heaven, FALSE TEACHING, this is not scriptrual.

    • The way you're seeing the question, it's after his death that he's given another chance, then I agree completely with you; it's false teaching, but the way I read the initial discussion is right prior to physical death; in the Tribulations, right before Jesus came, Judas would still be alive (physically)..

  • This very topic of discussion came about when we as a family were watching The Bible, and I looked it up in the Bible and this is what I came across. I know  we all want everybody to be saved but sadlythe bible says different. I do believe he was in God's Plan but he was headed for destruction. The bible says very clearly that he was lost ; John 17:12 During my time here, I protected them by the power of the name you gave me.* I guarded them so that not one was lost, except the one headed for destruction, as the Scriptures foretold. *** study bible explanation is 17:12 Judas was the 'one headed for destruction', who was lost because he betrayed Jesus and never sought forgiveness . Also read Mark 14:21 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."... but of course there is a part of me that hopes he is saved, after all that is what we wish  for , that everyone is saved and at the end of the day who are we to judge, ONLY God can do that. 

  • This is an interesting discussion and we should kick it up a notch.  I believe we are merely scratching the surface of an issue that relates to the many positions on "hell" and "judgment".  It overlaps with several of my own discussion on the "Traditional hell view" vs "reconciliation" vs "destruction of the wicked".  Lets keep in mind that our word "judgment" does not have to mean "condemnation".  A judgment could be less severe then death or torture.  In Hebrews 9:27, "judgment" is from Strongs no. 2920, krisis, and indicates a determination and other meanings.  If condemnation was meant than we would see "katakrisis" (down judgment) in the Greek text.

     A perfect judge can determine that mercy is best...

    Our God's MERCY and LOVE is endless not his WRATH (Psalms 136, Psalm 145...etc...).  Romans 11:32 implies strongly that God has binded all in disobediance so he can show mercy to all!!!  With this in mind what will be the final  of Judas?  Will God's wrath eternally roast Judas alive?  Of course not, because God's anger is not forever as his mercy is, and God reconciles all things (Col. 1:20).

    As I stated in a blog, God is long suffering and even suffers with his creation.
