 what is blasphmy of the holy spirit?

It is said to be the only unforgivable sin. But all our sins are Forgiven through the death and resurection of Christ Jesus, so to my mind, the only unforgivable sin, the Blasphamy of the Holy Spirt can only be a failure to belive and or accept Christ in your heart. What do you think?

I posted this link on another thread a while ago which I thought explained it very well.

Mark 3:28
Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 30 [b]Because they said, [u]He[/u] hath an unclean spirit[/b].

1 Cor 12:3
Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Blasphamy of the Holy Spirt can only be a failure to belive and or accept Christ in your heart. What do you think?

I think God did not tolerate being spoken against in the wilderness, when He sent fiery serpents among the people (Numbers 21) for a punishment, and to actively curse Him is demonstration of a heart-set which takes no note of the sacrifice of His Son, nor honest fear of the judgment of which Christ's death warns.

Here's a couple of previous threads, just a reminder, the search function is tremendously helpful here for prior discussions.. But always happy to assist:

Did have this thought occur to me the other day that I don't recall being brought up into all this...

Job 2:9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

 Re: what is blasphmy of the holy spirit?

Dear Sean,

Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is when a person knowingly attributes the work of the Holy Spirit to Satan or devils.

Possibly, the parable that tells of the vineyard being left in the husbandman's control while the owner went on a long journey, could be used to illustrate this. The husbandman would be a person that knows who the owner is. Somehow he thinks by killing the servants and the Son that he can get the inheritance. The Pharasees that accused Jesus of doing miracles by Beelzebub knew he was the Son and by accusing Jesus of doing miracles and then latter killing Jesus they could keep the little kingdom that they had here on earth.

To know that a miracle is done by the Holy Spirit and out of self preservation say it's done by Satan, would be blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and we are warned that this would never be forgiven. This warning like everything else in the Word is for us today.

It is commonly said that if a person has a conviction that they may have done this couldn't have done this because conviction comes from God to lead us to repentance, so there would be no conviction on a person that has done something unforgivable. If this is the case then people who have this conviction probably got it because they unknowingly said that a miracle or some other work of the Holy Spirit wasn't from God and now believe was. An example of this would be someone growing up in a teaching that teaches the gifts or miracles aren't for today, then finding out they are for today and in their former unbelief having a conviction on what they previously said. This is not blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.

In Christ,

Key word here is KNOWING!!!! If you knew that it was the work of God and rebuked it saying its of satan, then your in danger of this. However as mentioned, if your are worried that you have done this, you haven't!!! If you did do it you would not give a flip about it! your already lost! Anyone that calls on the name of the Lord SHALL BE SAVED!!! Someone that has done this will not call on the Lords name, therefore can't be saved. there heart has turned to salt.

Its one of those scary scriptures in the Bible hey, but the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom!!! Love wisdom and hate evil brother, Wisdom will serve you well!!! :-)

Hi Sean,
I believe there is a really good sermon on mp3 audio on this site by David Wilkerson. He handles it beautifully.
In Jesus,
click here, then scroll down it is second from the bottom.

The Unpardonable Sin by David Wilkerson
{Matthew 12:31,1 John 5:16}
Description: If you are afraid that you have committed it, you probably haven't. Those who have think they are alright. This is an encouraging message to those who have fallen into sin, or been disobedient to God and are afraid they've crossed the line.

blasphemy is a sin of the tongue originating in the heart.

I think you've given the most thorough, accurate, and Biblically sound explanation I've ever heard. Thank you for that.

 Re: what is blasphmy of the holy spirit?

Luk 11:14 And he was casting out a demon that was dumb. And it came to pass, when the demon was gone out, the dumb man spake; and the multitudes marvelled.

Luk 11:15 But some of them said, By Beelzebub the prince of the demons casteth he out demons.

Luk 11:16 And others, trying him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

Luk 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

Luk 11:18 And if Satan also is divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out demons by Beelzebub.

Luk 11:19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

Luk 11:20 But if I by the finger of God cast out demons, then is the kingdom of God come upon you.

Notice in these verses, Jesus is again being thought by >common folk< to be casting out demons by the devil. Look what He says to them, He treats them with kindness and not a horrid rebuke, as He done so with the Religious-Pharisees. WHY? Because the Religious or Pharisees are held at a higher accountability to the truth, They should have know better because they had the knowledge of the Truth, where as the common people who didn't know the truth are giving mercy and shown compassion by our Gracious Lord! Everything depends on how the Lord sees your heart, for these poor people, spoken of in luke, they just didn't understand what they were saying. God is so Good!! I believe also this can be said of the Gifts of the Spirit, by saying as an example, "Tongues is of the devil" etc. If its in the scripture, and your not sure either way, as for my example, its best to leave it untouched, and trust God for enlightenment.
