WHAT IS BLASPHEMY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT (THE UNFORGIVEABLE SIN)?
By: Norm Rasmussen
There is only ONE sin God won't forgive unless a
person changes the way they believe before dying and tells God they are
truly sorry for believing the devil's lies. It is
referred to as blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which is: Rejecting
(outright IGNORING falls in the same category) the FREE
GIFT of salvation of Jesus Christ and His Lordship in our lives --
ultimately refusing to believe that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way God has
given mankind to have ALL of our sins forgiven by Him, so they won't be held
against us on the Judgment Day.
Some expansion needs to also be given to get a FULLER understanding of what this unpardonable sin more fully entails. Those who refuse to believe that Jesus Christ was the long promised Messiah of the Old Testament, and STILL refuse to believe He was and IS the long promised Messiah given by God to mankind ... are ALSO guilty of this sin.
Why is this the unpardonable - unforgivable sin? Because it means we are saying that the Holy Spiritís witness about Jesus Christ (and what He accomplished for each and every one of us on the cross) is a LIE. (See: Luke 12:10).
(In the context of Luke 12:10, calling what the Holy Spirit is doing is "of the devil" must also be addressed. God wants people DISCERNING the demonic counterfeit supernatural from what the supernatural of the Holy Spirit often does or may do, and the BEST way to KNOW what is of the Holy Spirit and what isn't is by developing intimacy with the Holy Spirit on a frequent basis and knowing the New Covenant Word of God (NOT excluding the Old however, because the Old points the reader to the New - validating and sometimes helps us understand the New Covenant better). One can't do THAT unless Jesus Christ is their CLOSEST friend, and that isn't going to happen unless a person purposes to let Jesus Christ be LORD of their lives. It's one thing to ask Jesus to be one's Savior, and it starts there. It's quite another to purposely allow Him to be LORD of their lives - DAILY ... which God says is TOP PRIORITY if they are at all wise).
(If anyone thinks lying to the Holy Spirit is a trivial matter, read what happened to Ananias and Sapphira: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+5%3A1-11&version=NASB)
The Holy Spirit's witness about WHO Jesus Christ WAS, and IS, and forever WILL BE is given to humanity in the New Testament Bible. WHY He was sent to earth and die on the cross for our sins is also communicated to mankind in the New Testament. Thus if we cling to the LIE that the New Testament Bible is not relevant, and/or can't be trusted (Accepted Bible translations by credible born again Christian Theologians, of course) ... we are also DANGEROUSLY INSULTING [infuriating may be a better choice of words!] the Holy Spirit (Who is no less 1 of the 3 eternal Persons of the Godhead, for those who may not be aware: Father, Son (Jesus) & Holy Spirit).
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-20 is our assurance.)
