In this message Pastor Matt leads begins this evenings service with a Q and A session. The first question was asked: How involved was Judas when Christ was sending the Apostles our two by two? It's certainly possible that Christ gave Judas, just like the other Apostles miraculous powers. When God indwelt His Spirit in the Apostles, they were gifted with heavenly gifts. However, there is no question that Judas was an unbeliever. Judas was doing religious things but he was by no means a believer in Christ. The second question was asked, what was it like for Judas' partner, did he notice something was not right with Judas? We are not sure but we do know that Judas was a liar, a deceiver, a thief, and eventually a betrayer. We know that God can use unbelievers to fulfill prophecy. Judas is one example of this. Later, we open the Scripture in the twelfth book of Matthew, where Pastor Matt leads our continued study. We see the nation of Israel was taking itself into a worse spiritual condition than they were in before. The Pharisees were blinded by there own ignorance and jealously of Christ. Observe that we can have a very active study of the Scriptures within the confines of a very short passage. It is profitable to meditate carefully on the words of Jesus.

Our Scripture reading was found in 1 Chronicles 20:1-8.
