Concerning Judas Iscariot, Jesus said that it would have been good for him had he never been born.
" The Son of Man is going away, even as it is written concerning Him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born." (Matthew 26:24)
I think "raw deal" would be a vast understatement.
The thing that seems haunting to me is that it was at right after
he took to eat the morsel handed TO him by Jesus, Satan personally entered into him for Satan's special assignment for him.
John 13:26,27 - "Jesus answered, It is he for whom I will dip the morsel and to whom I will give it, And dipping the morsel, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
And at that moment, after the morsel, Satan entered into him. Jesus therefore said to him, What you do, do quickly."
When the Lord Jesus hands you something to eat spiritually, the condition of your heart is crucial. You may never know if this will be the last time Jesus will extend something of a morsel to you. Better to be receptive with thanks.
If your will is still stubbornly set to shut Christ out of your heart, that morsel of truth may just be immediately followed by the full power of darkness to envelope your will and soul.
If you receive a morsel of truth from Jesus Christ, it is better to at least say "Thankyou God. Thankyou God for that little morsel you just gave me."
