Before Judas betrayed Jesus the Lord said to him: You're going to betray me, now go do it.  (John 13:21-27)  I'm paraphrasing of course, nevertheless, after this exchange, Judas went out and betrayed Jesus.  We might think that such a plain statement would have been taken more seriously by Judas and cause him to think twice about his actions, but... it didn't.  Such is deception.  Don't ever assume you are impervious to deception.  Be humble before the Lord, discerning, and teachable so that deception might not have a foothold with you.  Otherwise, deception will lead you to places you do not want to go.  1 Peter 5:8 (NIV) Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
