Therefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven unto men. Matthew 12:31
Jesus died for our sins so we can be forgiven, but there is one sin he will not forgive and that’s “Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit”. So what is blasphemy? And who is The Holy Spirit?
Blasphemy- is an act or speaking offensively against God including profanity.
As Jesus said before he made this statement, “Anyone who is not with me is against me” (Matthew 12:30) So anyone who is committing blasphemy is ultimately waging war against God
We must understand that we are in a Spiritual Warfare for our souls (Ephesians 6:1) you are either on Gods side or Satans side, there is no in between
So who is The Holy Spirit? Jesus taught us a lot about the Holy Spirit in (John 14-15) He is the power of God, The Comforter, The Spirit of Truth that will dwell in us forever.
We should remember the story from (Acts 5) about Ananias and Sapphira, they intentionally lied and tried to deceive the Holy Spirit and were instantly put to death. Peter told them they had lied to God, this shows you a glimpse how the Father, Son , and Holy Spirit are One
So when you speak against God or use his name in vain, this will not be forgiven. When you target and persecute Christians this will not be forgiven. Before you wage war against Jesus, make sure you know the consequences, because if God if for us who can stand against us Amen
