Judas Iscariot

Written by: Bishop G.T. Haywood

Judas was a traitor. Jesus said to him, "Have not I chosen you twelve and one of you is a devil?" (John 6:70). He was a money-lover; a grafter; he carried the bag and sought the honor of men more than the praise of God. Because of these things he betrayed the Lord. Of all the twelve apostles he was the only one who did not obtain the Pentecostal experience. He was filled with a spirit (Like 22:3; John 13:27), but not with the Holy Spirit. He was "a devil" before he was given the sop. The signs that were to accompany "them that believe" did not appear in Judas' life. He was the only one of the twelve who did not speak in new tongues. He did not "tarry" for the Holy Ghost. G.T. Haywood
