Judas Iscariot Prepared by God?

Was Judas Iscariot created, prepared, to be the betrayer?

The thought being that God created Judas to be the betrayer.

Judas became the betrayer because of his own choices.

Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor. (Luke 6:16, EMTV)

Now He was speaking about Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, for he was intending to betray Him, though he was one of the twelve. (John 6:71, EMTV)

And after supper, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him, (John 13:2, EMTV)

"Men and brothers; it was necessary for this Scripture to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus; (Acts 1:16, EMTV)

Judas began as a follower but ended as a traitor.

Judas began with God but ended up following the devil's suggestion.

Judas began as a follower but ended as a leader, guide, to those who were to arrest the Lord Jesus.

Many start well but end up in disaster.

Let us do things God's way and be humble.
