When Judas followed Jesus as His Messiah for more than three years, if anyone had suggested that he would betray Jesus, he would have vehemently protested, “No! Not possible! I have left everything to follow my Rabbi!” However, history shows that Judas betrayed Jesus unto His death.
No one starts out in life saying, “I am a Judas.” Yet, the enemy can trick you with a thought. If that thought keeps being considered, soon that thought will manifest. Then, to your utter shock, you find yourself doing something you never thought you would ever do.
How is this possible?
1 John 4:3 says, “This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.”
A spirit of betrayal seeks to hijack the Church, attempting to bring believers into offense and deception. This spirit of Judas wants to hijack believers so they betray themselves and their leaders, sabotaging every area of their life. Ruthless, this spirit of betrayal attempts to devour people through their own deception, making them so completely convinced of their false understanding that they act upon their own deception and bring destruction through betrayal.
Can we stop this deception?
Before the enemy hijacks you, he will first bring new voices into your life, change your friends. Judas communed with the chief priests and captains to betray Jesus (Luke 22:4). When new voices come, you will soon find yourself echoing and believing the voices of your new friends, prompting choices that defy your current understanding, drowning the Voice that first led you.
Head to this powerful sermon, “Canceling the Spirit of Betrayal in your Life,” to unlock powerful voices and destroy every deception that would cause you to betray those whom God has called you to love!
