There is a great confusion flowing through the world, there are many on account of a lack of understand are turning away from the faith of Christianity. Worse than before, they are now turning to betrayal, but like Judas they will find no other alternative, but to wish for death, but in that hour even death will evade them.
Jesus spoke of a time, when men would come to judgment, and at the judgment will say, did we not in your name cast out demons, and do many wonderful works?” But His reply will be to those who had tasted of His goodness and power, “Depart from me you that work unrighteousness.”
Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
They were once believers, but on account of temptation they have turned away from the truth. What they have done, was to take the name of the Lord in vain. And what did the law said about that? Exodus 20:7 Thou shall not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain.
It is a serious matter coming to Christ; His kingdom will be established on earth. We either endure the hardship that comes with the gospel we preach about Christ, or not. This is to be a conscious choice, do not take the name of the Lord in vain. Judas joins the gang and in the end paid with his life. “The LORD will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain.”
Matthew 27:3-5 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, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, what is that to us? See thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
