In the opening of this series, we saw how greediness and lack of self-control, cut off Judas Iscariot out grace and led to his total destruction. He was mocked by the council members, he had planned to duped. He was ridiculed and put to shame, which led to his suicide on a tree.

MEMORY VERSE:
“And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.”
Matthew 27:5.

TODAY’S TEXT:
Matthew 26:14-16.
“Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.”

TODAY’S MESSAGE:
To be mocked is to be degraded or lost value in character and integrity. It is a slight in grace and lost of greater glory. We can say to be mocked is to move from higher ground to a lowest level, before your fans and foes. It is to possess or acquired a lesser quality, after a fall.
Meanwhile, our today’s text present us Judas Iscariot, as a case study of a mocked believer, who fell from grace to grass. Moreover, Judas Iscariot was not just a believer, or an ordinary disciple but an Apostle, endowed with grace and power for signs and wonders.
Furthermore, beloved in Christ Jesus, Matthew 10:1 declared about Judas Iscariot and the other eleven special disciples (Apostles) saying: “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sicknesses and all manner of diseases.”
However, in Matthew 26:15-16, his story had changed due to greediness and lack of self-control. “And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.” This was solely to duped the council, but the result did not come out as planned.
Conclusively, Judas Iscariot; who by grace had heal all manner of sickness and diseases, and had cast out all kinds of demons, performed and also witness great signs and wonders by others. What a great privilege! Unfortunately, our memory verse report that he ended up hanging himself on a tree. After the council had achieved their aim, they mocked him. May you not totally fall from grace in Jesus name. Amen.

God bless you. *Jesus is coming very soon.* Be prepared.

DAILY CONFESSION:
I will not be mocked by my enemies. If I fall, by grace, I will rise again.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, in your mercy, help me not to fall totally from grace. And if perchance I failed, help me Lord, to return to you as the prodigal son in Jesus name. Amen.

The truth remain that God had put everything in place, for His children’s blessings and pleasure. And all; be it wealth, connection, affluence, skills, talents and so on. God endowed us with them for our enjoyment, and that of the others, even to the satisfaction of all.
