Question 19 – Jesus Christ says I have lost none!

John 18:9 NKJV - "that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, "Of those whom You gave Me I have lost none."”
Luke 22:29-30 NKJV - ""And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me, "that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.""
John 17:12 NKJV - "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled."
John 13:26 NKJV - "Jesus answered, "It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it." And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon."
                Judah Iscariot lost to sit on His throne in His kingdom and the power to judge the twelve tribes of Israel. But, Peter denied the Lord Christ three times by promising before the people and repented. Peter could achieve great deeds in the Lord Christ in his remaining life and got his name on the foundations of the city of the heavenly Jerusalem through his gospel service.
                But, Judah Iscariot yielded to the Satan for the desire on money and handed over the Lord to the Jews. Thereafter, he repented, lost his desire on money and threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself. He terminated his life in middle.  So, his name was not on the formation of the city of the heavenly Jerusalem, because he was not used in the gospel service of the Lord.
                But, John 21: 20- 22, “Then Peter, turning around,  saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, Lord who is the one who betrays you”. Peter seeing him, said to Jesus. “But Lord, what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come what is that to you? According to this verse, the Lord Christ accepted Judas, because Judah Iscariot repented for his sins. Some people think that this verse is about John; here, if he is John, where is the objection for Peter about John?

                Judah Iscariot was used to fulfill the plan of the Lord by the Satan, in John 13:26- 27. If Judah Iscariot experienced the pomp and pleasures with the silver coins, which he earn by handing Him over to Jews, the words that the Lord Christ said in John 17:12 would have become a lie. And the spirit of Judah Iscariot was handed over to the Satan. He could enter in the salvation of the Lord by leaving the desire on money and repenting like David and Peter.
