Son of Perdition

Because Jesus said "Have not I chosen you 12 and one of you is a devil" and when he [Judas] hung himself he went to "his own place," do you think he is the Antichrist or the king of the Bottomless Pit?

Yes, I DO believe that he (his soul) will be in the Antichrist's body in the second half of the Tribulation period! Judas went to his "own place" per Peter in Acts 1, and he is called by our Lord the "son of perdition" in the book of John.

Acts 1:25
That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.

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

In the 2nd half of the Tribulation, the Antichrist will also be called, "the son of perdition." So comparing scripture with scripture, and knowing that at the same time, the "man of sin" (the name for the Antichrist as given to us by our apostle, Paul)—as far as the 1st half of the Tribulation period is concerned—will die of a deadly head wound, but then "come back to life," I believe that that will be Judas' soul.

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

So the Antichrist, in the 2nd half of the Tribulation period, will be made up of the man of sin's BODY, and Judas' SOUL, and Satan's SPIRIT (as Satan will be kicked out of Heaven by Michael the Arch Angel and his forces in the middle of the Tribulation period).

Revelation 12:7-9
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

So in the 1st half of the Trib, the Antichrist will be a "regular" human being, but in the middle of it, after the "human" dies, he will be a trichotomy—spirit, soul and body (like as in 1 Thessalonians 5:22), made up of Satan's spirit, Judas' soul, and the "Man of Sin's" human body.

Hopefully this helps...Maranatha!
