Judas Iscariot as already stated was one of the twelve inner circle disciples of Jesus, not an Apostle for he did not see the risen Christ, he hung himself in remorse, not repentance, then his bloated body fell into the very field purchased by the dirty money and his intestines spilled out.Matthew 27:5 and Acts 1:16-18.Thus one can be close to the Word and hang with the Children of God and not be born again but be born of destruction, ruin, and loss.

Judas Iscariot became the first Son of Perdition mentioned thus one of the antichrists or adversaries of Christ that John talks about in 1 John 2:18. The next Antichrist and labeled Son of Perdition will be the man of sin Paul writes about in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4. the common denominator between the two is they are unprotected and Satan thus fills and dominates their beings.John 17:12.

So there was the serpent in the Garden of Eden, the son of perdition in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the man of sin in the Garden of Tribulation where God shall grow his Wrath and those left behind shall reap the harvest.All filled with Satan, all the tools of destruction.

We then must be sure we are indwelled by the Holy Spirit by being born again, for Satan goes to and fro seeking whom he may devour, and demons and doctrines of demons seek to destroy. 1 Peter 5:8.
