Kindred, 


Did Jesus Christ know that Judas was going to betray him?  


We know that Jesus knew before the time of betrayal, but how long before?  


Jesus revealed his knowledge at the Last Supper, but that was when the Judas kiss was near certainty.  


Did Jesus have the power to stop Judas?  


Yet, Jesus did not.  


Did not abuse his superpowers to control or manipulate Judas?


He even made it easy for Judas to make his choice unhindered by saying to him, "What you are about to do, do quickly."         

                     - [John 13:27]


Jesus Christ allowed for free will and free choice, just as the Lord did from the beginning of human creation.


Christ did not force or coerce an outcome of his desires or even needs.  


Right or wrong Judas was free to choose.  


We all know what happened next.  


What the consequences were of his actions of choosing power of Caesar over meekness of heart for the Lord's kingdom.  


Did Judas lean not to his own understanding?  


Judas thought he knew better than Jesus Christ and that his way was the only way.  


By the time Judas realized his mistake, it was too late.  


His legacy, in history, written.  


His name, synonymous, in the dictionary as the "one who betrays under the guise of friendship"; traitor of the lowest kind.


Judas chose something else over loyalty to the Lord.  


My point? 


Judas failed to put the Lord first, chose his own understanding in betrayal and Jesus Christ let him by not abusing his power and superpowers.
