Both Saul in the Old Testament and Judas in the New Testament were granted their positions by God, but were later rejected by Him and replaced. In the end, Saul fell on his own sword on the battlefield and Judas fell headlong, dying also by his own hands in another “field of blood”. They were both granted influence by God, but their lack of reverence for Him was their downfall in both physically gruesome and spiritually tragic ways. Fear of the Lord, though it may elude some, is not an option for the faithful. It is a necessity.
