“But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, ‘Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?’ This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.” John 12:4-6 NKJV
The role of a prophet is to tell the Body of CHRIST what ABBA is doing in this season, and that is the reason for this article.
Until the HOLY SPIRIT revealed this to me with a real-life example, I only saw Judas’ betrayal as the act of selling our LORD JESUS for 30 pieces of silver. But there was more. Judas was a thief in his heart; his actions proved it, yet he was never caught. Rather, he was exposed. In fact, when JESUS was giving out power and authority, Judas got some as well (see Luke 9:1).
Judas is a prime example of how miracles, signs, and wonders alone do not validate a person as a man or woman of GOD. Does the WORD of GOD line up with their teaching or preaching? Does their lifestyle fit the WORD they are speaking? If the answer is “no,” run away; don’t walk.
According to Scripture, Judas, so close to JESUS, saw the LORD, participated in HIS goodness, and yet slapped away HIS hand of love, and said through his actions, “JESUS, YOU are not enough for me.” How rude! How unkind, how unloving, how rude! After JESUS loved on him, taught him, gave him superhuman abilities, gave him access to the Hands and Feet of GOD walking on earth without an appointment.
Others fought through mobs and cried out for mercy such that their bodies were healed, demons left their children, and their family members were raised from the dead. Yet Judas saw all this, participated, but still sold JESUS out for money and the accolades of the chief priests, with the kiss of a friend (see Matthew 26).
What was Judas’ end? He returned the 30 pieces of silver and hung himself. Then the chief priests took the silver and purchased a field for burring strangers, the Field of Blood (see Matthew 27). Basically, there was a coverup. The money was used to do a “good thing” for society.
That game has not changed. Religion will always find a way to cover up its faults by doing the “good thing.”
Why is this important for 2024? Because the revelations of “Judases” within the Church institution will increase at a dramatic rate, and “beloved men and women of god” will be exposed. GOD is making a show if it now and HE does not want HIS children to be caught up in this pattern of coverups.
He who has an ear, let your ears be opened and your eyes be attentive. This will be the pattern for 2024.
Here is a real-life example of Judas in our generation, and the Church institution.
On September 8, 2023, former pastor Gandhi Olaoye was made Soun or king of Ogbomosho in Nigeria. This former pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church in Washington DC, one of the larger church congregations in the USA, left his position of leading the flock of JESUS CHRIST to accept this kingship role. He was officially crowned the traditional king on December 19, after winning legal battles over the legitimacy of his claim (Dada, 2023).
It is claimed that the ancestors and ancient spirits chose him to rule the land through a process of divination within Yoruba religion, called “Ifa” (Wikipedia, 2023). Yes, he was “chosen” by consulting demonic spirits, not the SPIRIT of JESUS CHRIST which is the HOLY SPIRIT.
What was the benefit of taking on this title? Political connections, financial increase, and, of course, benefiting the people of Ogbomosho.
The Bible talks about breaking generational curses in Exodus 20 because the ancestors of non-Jewish people worshiped other gods, ancient spirits. Non-Jews are called “Gentiles” in the Bible. When we accept JESUS CHRIST, we are renouncing these other gods that were worshiped through “traditional worship, cultural practices, etc.” and are clinging onto the LORD JESUS.
“As a dog returns to his own vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.” Proverbs 26:11 NKJV
Olaoye was a pastor and led many churches for more than 20 years. I was not a member. Within those years, he proclaimed JESUS, I assumed he saw answers to prayer, saw people healed, may have even seen people turn from witchcraft or delivered from demonic spirits. Yet, he responded to the “call of his land” by the voice of ancestors, shared with this generation through Ifa divination. Judas, how rude.
Thus says the LORD who made you, who formed you: I took you from nothing and raised you into a great name. Yet you have indeed decided that I AM not enough. Olaoye, you shall surely go the way of Judas. The coverup will not cover up. You shall be an example to many of how the LORD deals with those who betray HIM, that the Fear of the LORD may return to the Church institution.
