I have heard some Christians say that Judas was an instrument in the hand of God:he was predestined to betray Jesus:so, he would now be in heaven!.
I find that the best answer is the latter part of John 6:70, "one of you is a DEVIL" .I strongly believe that this categorical statement of Our Lord has been culpably overlooked by the commentators to this day in its true meaning. What Jesus meant was that Judas is the personification of Satan himself! Jesus did not say that Judas would be possessed by a demon. Judas was Satan incarnated.
Too many difficulties could be solved by this interpretation. Some are doubtful,as I said earlier, that injustice had been done by God in appointing a man in flesh and blood to betray Our Lord. And that even if Judas willed,he could never abstain from betraying Jesus!. When God incarnated as a man, Satan also took the form of another man,with God's permission, of course. That is why Peter declared that Judas "went back to his place". Judas is also called "the son of perdition"- that is,Satan.
