Sadly, awfully, horribly, Judas is in hell now.. Jesus said, Haven't I chosen twelve of you and one of you is a devil?....It is better for that man that he was never born. Judas also hung himself, suicide. But I always bear in mind that even my teeniest, tiniest sin would send me straight to hell too, were it not for Jesus dying for my sins and redeeming me at Calvary. He is our one and only chance. He said, "There is no other name under heaven by which man might be saved."
---Sonya on 4/12/13


I have answered this question once, here, but I will share with you too. No, I do not believe Judas went to heaven, although he 'Rightly" felt bad for his deeds against the LORD JESUS...he DID NOT REPENT. That is where it lies. I am sure JESUS would have forgiven him had he repented, or the father would have forgiven him, but because HE did not repent, that we know of, there is no forgiveness of sins without repentence. So I am sure he is not in heaven. Pray for me also. GOD BLESS YOU ALL

judas may have felt bad for what he did but he still took the money so that really shows what his heart was.
---shira4368 on 4/9/13


Susan, Judas felt remorse, MATTHEW 27:3, but he did not really seek GOD's Forgiveness, as per II CORINTHIANS 7:10. When he died he went straight to Hell. ACTS 1:16-25 shows how Judas betrayed the Lord even though he was once a part of the Ministry. But after his Suicide, he, by his own transgression, fell so that he might "go to his own place." YAHUSHUA said of Judas, in MATTHEW 26:24, "The Son of Man goeth as it is Written of Him: but, Woe unto that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It had been good for that man IF HE HAD NOT BEEN BORN." Not good. There is no Biblical record of Judas seeking Forgiveness to be restored unto the Shepherd. Unlike Peter, who also betrayed the Lord, but truly repented. Judas is in Hell.

John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.
-Jesus said he is lost per scripture.
---micha9344 on 4/8/13


Susan, no one knows who, other then ourselves, is saved or not. In many cases in the Bible we are not told if someone was saved or not. But with the information we have in Scripture, we can make a decision on our own, not that it will count with God.
Judas commit one of the worse sins. He did repent as we are told, but what we don't know is if he had a contrite heart or not when he repented. There is two kinds of repentance. The first is called attrition. It involves remorse caused by a fear of punishment. Children have that remorse. This repentance is not the signs of genuine remorse for wrong doing. Contrition on the other hand is godly repentance. It includes deep remorse for having offended God.
---Mark_V. on 4/8/13


Yes! But Gods word is sure to make certain we KNOW he was the ONLY one marked for destruction before the foundations of the world....so we understand that of ALL who come to Christ, He will turn away NONE!
---Doug on 4/7/13


Matthew 26:24
"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.

If it is better that he not been born, how is it that he go to heaven. More, he went and hung himself.

1 Corinthians 3:17
If anyone destroys Gods temple, God will destroy that person, for Gods temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.

The word says we shall not judge.the word said someone had to betray Jesus.so it was GOD plans for judas to betray him. The scripitures had to be for filled.The bible said that Judas repented for what he did.We all have sinned and fall short of his glory.We don't know what Judas said to the Father before he died.Also I want someone to show me in the bible wheres it say self murder will not be forgiven.My bible tell me the only sin that shall not be forgiven is blaspmey against the holy ghost

Poopsey: You are right that in John Judas is also called 'a devil'.

There is, though, the phrase in Matt 27:3, saying that Judas' 'repented'.

Was it enough?

I, for one, cannot say
---Peter on 12/9/11


It is God who decide Judas go to hell or heaven, none of us can judge him because all of us are sinners.

I still remember before Jesus die in the cross, He pray for the father,to forgive them because they don't know what are they doing,

also most of Jesus teaching is to forgive our enemy
---Johnny_Tung on 12/9/11


llse,

That is what the Gnostic gospel of Peter says, which teaches salvation is about secret knowledge not faith in Christs death and resurrection.
---willa5568 on 7/8/11


There is absolute proof that Judas is not saved but doomed. He is referred to by the same term as the antichrist is. In the KJV the son of perdition. He was also referred to as a Devil by Christ in John 6:70.

This is absolute proof that Judas was doomed to destruction.
---poopsey on 7/8/11


I totally agree w/ David.
---Rickey on 7/7/11


I've often wondered why Judas had betrayed Jesus who was beloved and respected. And I've always concluded that Judas did not betray Jesus for money. He felt guilty because he doubted himself. Would he be strong enough to betray a man whom he loved and respected? Jesus had a path set out for him from the day of his birth. So did Judas. And that is why Jesus asked Judas to betray him. Because he knew, if he did not die for us on the cross, that the world would cease to exist. He trusted Judas to do as he had asked him to do. And Judas did it. For me, Judas was a very courageous man. A man who knew he would be the most hated man until the end of this world. Yet, for the love of Jesus, he did it.

Did Judas take the Lords Supper?
Somewhere down in all of that mess of posts was a comment that Judas went to do his business and missed the Lords Supper. You need to read your bible again and pay closer attention to the order of events. He was there at the Lords Supper and did not leave until afterwards.. he may or may not have been there for the foot washing. Probably absent by that time having left before Jesus and the rest of the Apostles got up from the table.
---Pr_James_Madden on 6/26/11


Jesus called Judas 'son of destruction'- John 17:12. Judas was also an unrepentant thief- John 12:5,6.

Judas was dismissed just before Jesus and the remaining 11 disciples celebrated the 'Lord's evening meal' (last supper) on Passover, Nisan 14, 33CE. Jesus on this occasion instituted the 'New Covenant' saying, 'I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom.'- Luke 22:29.

Judas had been dismissed and thus was not included in the 'new covenant' and has thus no part in the heavenly resurrection.

Luke 6:16 says Judas "turned" traitor. The Bible does not teach Judas was pre-determined to betray Jesus, only that someone would.

the demoniac was full of a legion of devils and still worshiped at Jesus feet. Demon possion is not an excuse. also how would Judas repent for suicide? hard to say your sorry when a rope is crushing your voice box. Jesus even said that He lost none but Judas and he was the son of perdition. if Jesus says someone isnt saved i would take His word for it.

Neither. According to the Bible, he is asleep in the grave awaiting the second resurrection and destruction in the lake of fire.

Ramon ... the Predestinationalists here do say that God has decided, before they have been born, whom He will save and whom He will therefore consign to hell
---alan_of_UK on 1/27/08


Yes I agree that God knew what Hitler was going to do and I certainly do not think he was a Christian. Judas was a follower of Jesus though and I do believe that he carried out God's plans for him. He was extremely sorrowful afterwards even though it was what he had to do. That shows a possibility of asking for forgiveness.God says if we confess our sins he forgives us,none of us know what went on between him and God minutes before he died. I'm sorry but I have to believe there is hope for us all.

Tena * Obviously,none of you believe in predestination...I believe Judas did what was predestined for him to do...*

The Predestinationalist say that some was predestined to go to hell and some to heaven, all by God.

Sorry, by the basics of Scripture (1 Tim 2:3-4) I cannot accept the doctrine that God choose which one will go to hell and which one will not before they are born.

If Judas was predestined to betray Jesus, then it doesn't mean he will go heaven either Tena.
---Ramon on 1/25/08


Tena ... the Predestinationalist says we are all predestined ... some to be saved, and the rest to perish, or burn.
So Hitler did what God predestined him to do. Does not mean he goes to heaven fro doing it, though.
God had Hitler down for Hell right from the start even though Hitler obeyed God's predestined plans.
Personally i can't accept that.
---alan_of_UK on 1/25/08


David prophesied by the Holy Ghost of Judas and what he prophesied pretty much means that Judas did not go to heaven.
We are predestinated to be conformed to the image of the Son of God just as messengers of the devil are predestinated to chains of darkness and damnation. God already knew who would love his Son and wrote them in the book of life before they were ever born.
He also foreknew those like Judas that would be damned.

Obviously,none of you believe in predestination...I believe Judas did what was predestined for him to do...but even if not..none of us know what he said to God the minute before he died..I'm sorry...I just don't dare to preclude I know for sure who is in Heaven and who is not.

Judas fulfilled the temptation on Christ.
As turning stones to bread he abused his authority.
As jumping from a tower he tempted God in betrayal.
As falling before satan he worshipped the same god of money today's prosperity preachers teach.
He killed himself like the swine possessed by devils.
Another was given his place.
I think the word shows where he went.

---Frank on 1/21/08


Tena *How could anyone possibly judge whether or not Judas repented and asked forgiveness or whether he was not saved when he betrayed...[or] accepted salvation....*

Because we are called by Jesus to judge "righteously" (John 7:24), and thus can conclude whether Judas repented or not (etc).

*Certainly none of us can presume to know who has or has not gone to Heaven or Hell*

Yet, like Saint Paul, we can know who is wicked(1 Cor 5:13), and a wicked person will not go to heaven
---Ramon on 1/21/08


Judas was once Saved, part of the flock, but he did not "keep the faith" and abandoned Christ and His flock.

There are no indication within Scriptures that Judas repented to God, and thus we can conclude that Judas is in Hades with all the wicked souls that are there.
---Ramon on 1/21/08


.tena, friends don't set out to kill friends. He is in hell, he could have went and pleaded forgiveness from the Lord Jesus, or he could have even went and pleaded the release of Jesus, whom he himself had him arrested and betrayed him with a kiss: but he did not, instead he himself sold Jesus out, and thereby had him arrested and murdered, then he himself finished his detruction by killing himself.

How could anyone possibly judge whether or not Judas repented and asked forgiveness or whether he was not saved when he betrayed Jesus and then accepted salvation before he died. Certainly none of us can presume to know who has or has not gone to Heaven or Hell before us..after all, Judas was the only person Jesus ever called friend.
---Tena on 1/21/08


Judas abandoned the flock. Into the house of God we walked in company, but he put forward his hand against such as be at peace with him: he broke his covenant. Even a man of my friendship, whom I trusted in him eating of my bread, has lifted up the heel against me. He is brought down to the pit of destruction, men of blood and deceit will not live half their days. Blot them from the Book of Life, and with the righteous let not be written, from which fell Judas whom goes into his own place.
---Eloy on 1/18/08


Judas did not repent to Jesus, instead Judas had the Holy One of Israel killed. Yes, Judas had a freewill, he freely chose to be a traitor. Judas did not portray Jesus, but betrayed Jesus, therefore he is in hell. "to take the part of this ministry and apostleship, from which fell Judas whom goes into his own place." Acts 1:25.

To lovable Linda-"Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, REPENTED himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders," this is from the King James version.

Judas Iscariot was no robot, he is in hell. Satan cannot control any person without the person choosing to serve him.
---Eloy on 1/16/08


I agree with Lovable Linda that Judas is not reported as having repented to or before God
The description of his "repentance" appears to me to be more saying to himself "Oh, ***** what have I done? I had better give the money back"
He was just sorry for himself & that is not enough.
---alan_of_UK on 1/15/08


If he had really gotten saved at that moment, he should have been joyful, but what did he do?

He committed suicide. He chose death, since all he had after betraying Jesus was the sinful conviction of an unbeliever. He was filled with the sorrow of the world (2 Corinthians 6:10) and because it was not true repentance.

He was a disciple who also then betrayed Christ, became a devil (John 6:70), a thief (John 12:6), a murderer, and a traitor (someone who betrayed the cause). You can't betray what you never pledged allegiance to. Through covetousness he died in destruction and perdition (1 Timothy 6:9-10), and through transgression he fell (Acts 1:25).

He became lost and the son of perdition (John 17:12), and went to his own place (hell), whereas before his fall he was destined to go to heaven.

Bible scholars agree that the son of perdition was Judas. The word perdition, means eternal death. Jesus also uses the word perished in referring to Judas. John 3:16, where Jesus clearly infers that to perish means to go to hell.

Judas went to his own place, not heaven.

In Acts 1:20, Psalm 69, Psalm 100 which directly predicts Judas demise and destiny.

Judas did NOT repent to God for his sin, but repented to himself only. (Matthew 27:3, KJV)

For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.

Some people have said that Judas repented and therefore got re-saved. Nothing could be further from the truth.

If Judas had truly repented to God, instead of to himself, he would have had no regret or remorse.
In Matthew 27:3, Judas DID have regret and he only felt bad to himself, not to God.

It is imperative that we repent(change our minds) before it is possible to receive Christ. However I do not believe Judas ever continued on and received Christ. Therefore Judas went to hell.

NV Barbara, Judas went to Hell. The statement that says that Judas "repented himself" was in regards to the 30 pcs. of silver. He realized that he betrayed Innocent Blood, he felt guilty for selling off YAHUSHUA (Jesus Christ) but there is mention whatsoever that Judas "repented unto Salvation". In fact, Judas is called the "son of Perdition", and the ONLY other person with that title in the Scriptures is the Anti-Christ.

"For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted, but the sorrow of the world produces death." (2 Corinthians 7:10)

The sorrow of Judas brought him to religious people and suicide. Once Satan has no more use for one of his people, he may just dump the person in suicide.

Scripture, The Bible, teaches that throughout our Christian life, salvation is conditional and present tense.

It also teaches that the saved always have a strong hope for eternal life. It teaches that salvation comes by faith and repentance that produces good works of obedience through God's grace and our love for the Lord.
