The Book of the Revelation, the Apocalypse of St. John the Apostle

Chapter fourteen

Of the Lamb and of the virgins that follow him.

1 And I beheld, and lo a lamb stood upon mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty-four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the noise of many waters, and as the voice of great thunder; and the voice which I heard, was as the voice of harpers, harping on their harps. 3 And they sung as it were a new canticle, before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the ancients; and no man could say the canticle, but those hundred forty-four thousand, who were purchased from the earth. 4 These are they who were not defiled with women: for they are virgins. These follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb: 5 And in their mouth there was found no lie; for they are without spot before the throne of God.

Of the judgments upon and the eternal damnation that shall fall upon the wicked who take the Mark of the Beast.

6 And I saw another angel flying through the midst of heaven, having the eternal gospel, to preach unto them that sit upon the earth, and over every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people: 7 Saying with a loud voice: Fear the Lord, and give him honour, because the hour of his judgment is come; and adore ye him, that made heaven and earth, the sea, and the fountains of waters. 8 And another angel followed, saying: That great Babylon is fallen, is fallen; which made all nations to drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice: If any man shall adore the beast and his image, and receive his character in his forehead, or in his hand; 10 He also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mingled with pure wine in the cup of his wrath, and shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the sight of the holy angels, and in the sight of the Lamb.

The Son of Perdition

Medieval perception of Satan in hell, forever consuming
The Son of Perdition. Quite accurate in the real truth of the eternal damnation of Judas, and the son of perdition at the end of the age and all who betray God and His little ones, as well.

The Church Fathers were accustomed to referring to the Antichrist as Apollyon (the destroyer) and other names taken from scripture directly to preserve God's meaning about it.


The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, Vol. IV:2320. [1915]

per-dish’-un (apoleia, “ruin” or “loss,” physical or eternal):

The word “perdition” occurs in the English Bible 8 times (John 17:12; Philippians 1:28; 2

Thessalonians 2:3; 1 Timothy 6:9; Hebrews 10:39; 2 Peter 3:7; Revelation 17:8, 11). In each of these cases it denotes the final state of ruin and punishment which forms the opposite to salvation. The verb apolluein, from which the word is derived, has two meanings:

(1) to lose;

(2) to destroy.

Both of these pass over to the noun, so that apoleia comes to signify:

(1) loss;

(2) ruin, destruction.

The former occurs in Matthew 26:8; Mark 14:4, the latter in the passages cited above. Both meanings had been adopted into the religious terminology of the Scriptures as early as the Septuagint. “To be lost” in the religious sense may mean “to be missing” and “to be ruined,” The former meaning attaches to it in the teaching of Jesus, who compares the lost sinner to the missing coin, the missing sheep, and makes him the object of a seeking activity (Matthew 10:6, 15:24, 18:11; Luke 15:4, 6, 8, 24, 32, 19:10). “To be lost” here signifies to have become estranged from God, to miss realizing the relations which man normally sustains toward Him. It is equivalent to what is theologically called “spiritual death.” This conception of “loss” enters also into the description of the eschatological fate of the sinner as assigned in the judgment (Luke 9:24, 17:33), which is a loss of life. The other meaning of “ruin” and “destruction” describes the same thing from a different point of view. Apoleia being the opposite of soteria, and soteria in its technical usage denoting the reclaiming from death unto life, apoleia also acquires the specific sense of such ruin and destruction as involves an eternal loss of life (Philippians 1:28; Hebrews 10:39). Perdition in this latter sense is equivalent to what theology calls “eternal death.” When in Revelation 17:8, 11 it is predicated of “the beast,” one of the forms of the world-power, this must be understood on the basis of the Old Testament prophetic representation according to which the coming judgment deals with powers rather than persons.

The Son of Perdition is a name given to Judas (John 17:12) and to the Antichrist (2 Thessalonians 2:3). This is the well-known Hebrew idiom by which a person typically embodying a certain trait or character or destiny is called the son of that thing. The name therefore represents Judas and the Antichrist (see “Man of Sin”) as most irrecoverably and completely devoted to the final apoleia.

John 13:2
And when supper was done, (the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray him,)

John 13:26
Jesus answered: He it is to whom I shall reach bread dipped. And when he had dipped the bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

John 18:2
And Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place; because Jesus had often resorted thither together with his disciples.

John 18:3
Judas therefore having received a band of soldiers and servants from the chief priests and the Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

John 18:5
They answered him: Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith to them: I am he. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them.

Luke 22:48 And Jesus said to him: Judas, dost thou betray the Son of man with a kiss?

The betrayal of Jesus Christ, by Judas, in the Garden

Acts Of Apostles 1:16

Men, brethren, the scripture must needs be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of them that apprehended Jesus: [17] Who was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. [18] And he indeed hath possessed a field of the reward of iniquity, and being hanged, burst asunder in the midst: and all his bowels gushed out.

Judas hanged himself only to escape God's punishment, but it didn't happen that he could escape the just wrath of God. No one can. The scripture here conflates a great deal that the Apostles knew and in fact passed on to the Apostolic Fathers.

First Judas hanged himself, but God didn't allow him to die - he was excruciatingly tortured first and then died apostate, damned to hell in sheer terror and misery.



Judas walked about in this world a sad example of impiety; for his body having swollen to such an extent that he could not pass where a chariot could pass easily, he was crushed by the chariot, so that his bowels gushed out. - Papias

Papias was "a hearer of John and a companion of Polycarp, a man of primitive times," who wrote a volume in "five books" (St. Irenaeus, haer. 5.33.4).

“Judas was a dreadful, walking example of ungodliness in this world, with his flesh bloated to such an extent that he could not walk through a space where a wagon could easily pass, not even his bloated head by itself. For his eyelids, they say, were so swollen that it was absolutely impossible for him to see the light and his eyes could not be seen by a physician, even with the help of a magnifying glass, so far had they sunk from the outer surface. His private parts were shamefully huge and loathsome to behold, and when he relieved himself there passed through it pus and worms from every part of his body, much to his shame. After much agony and punishment, they [the Apostles] say, he finally died in his own place, and because of the stench the area is deserted and uninhabitable even now: in fact, to this day no one can pass that place unless they hold their nose, so great was the discharge from his body and so far did it spread over the ground.”– Papias, quoted by Apollinarius of Laodicaea (4th c.)

Acts Of Apostles 1:25
To take the place of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas hath by transgression fallen, that he might go to his own place [to hell, first suffering an ignominous death as an example to all].

Our Lord Jesus Christ speaking of Judas Iscariot who Our Lord calls the son of perdition.

John 17:12
While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. Those whom thou gavest me have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled.

St. Paul concerning the future son of perdition.

2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,

If you were to phonetically spell Judas’ name in Greek as the son of perdition: “Judh ben apoleia,” it would in Greek Isopsephia equal 666 (which St. Irenaeus says is required to fit the inalterable prophecy in the Book of the Revelation – Rev. 13:18) as the mark and name and number of the beast. This does not mean that the son of perdition at the end of the age is a reincarnation of Judas Iscariot, but instead a FULFILLMENT OF THE SAME TYPE OF BETRAYAL. See below for the PRIME EXAMPLE.

Benediktos = 666

English to Greek exactly



2+ 5+ 50+ 5+ 4+ 10+ 20+ 300+ 70+ 200=666

See Benediktos and other antichrists here.
