Bible Lesson: Prophecies And Their Fulfillment:

Bible Prophecy: The Office That Judas Held, To Be Taken By Another.

Bible Text:

The Prophecy:

Psalm 109:7,8 NLT
7 When his case comes up for judgment, let him be pronounced guilty. Count his prayers as sins.
8 Let his years be few; let someone else take his position.

The Prophecy Fulfillment:

Acts 1:15-20 NLT
15 During this time, when about 120 believers were together in one place, Peter stood up and addressed them.
16 “Brothers,” he said, “the Scriptures had to be fulfilled concerning Judas, who guided those who arrested Jesus. This was predicted long ago by The Holy Spirit, speaking through King David.
17 Judas was one of us and shared in the ministry with us.”
18 (Judas had bought a field with the money he received for his treachery. Falling headfirst there, his body split open, spilling out all his intestines.
19 The news of his death spread to all the people of Jerusalem, and they gave the place the Aramaic name Akeldama, which means “Field of Blood.”)
20 Peter continued, “This was written in the book of Psalms, where it says, ‘Let his home become desolate, with no one living in it.’ It also says, ‘Let someone else take his position.’

Of Judas The Word tells us...

Matthew 26:24 KJV
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.

Acts 1:25 KJV (Matthias chosen as an Apostle.)
That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.

Tragedy, tragedy, in his remorse (Not to be confused with repentance!), we read....

Matthew 27:5 KJV
And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

Acts 1:18,19 KJV
18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

This may at first, seem a contradiction, and yet it is said that Judas more than likely hung himself over a cliff, and that having hung himself, (due to his weight, have stolen funds from the treasury, with which he no doubt, fed himself.) the rope broke, sending his body down a cliff and into a ravine, and “his bowels gushed out.”

The Election of Matthias (Qualifications for Apostleship.)

Acts 1:13,20-26 NLT
13 When they arrived, they went to the upstairs room of the house where they were staying.
Here are the names of those who were present: Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James (son of Alphaeus), Simon (the zealot), and Judas (son of James).

20 Peter continued, “This was written in the book of Psalms, where it says, ‘Let his home become desolate, with no one living in it.’ It also says, ‘Let someone else take his position.’
21 “So now we must choose a replacement for Judas from among the men who were with us the entire time we were traveling with the Lord Jesus—
22 from the time he was baptized by John until the day he was taken from us. Whoever is chosen will join us as a witness of Jesus’ resurrection.”
23 So they nominated two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias.
24 Then they all prayed, “O Lord, you know every heart. Show us which of these men you have chosen
25 as an apostle to replace Judas in this ministry, for he has deserted us and gone where he belongs.”
26 Then they cast lots, and Matthias was selected to become an apostle with the other eleven.

God's Message To Us Today!

Numbers 32:23 KJV (Moses warned Gad and Reuben)
But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against The Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out.

Deuteronomy 4:9 NLT (Moses last warnings to the people of God.)
But watch out! Be careful never to forget what you yourself have seen. Do not let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren.

Psalm 69:5 NLT
O God, you know how foolish I am; my sins cannot be hidden from you.

Ezekiel 18:30 NLT
Therefore, I will judge each of you, O people of Israel (God's people), according to your actions, says The Sovereign Lord. Repent, and turn from your sins. Don’t let them destroy you!


Nehemiah 9:17 KJV
"...but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness..."

Isaiah 45:22 KJV
Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

Romans 10:9,10 KJV
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation.


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
