    Hi All,

    I want to share a beautiful experience I have had from God about this matter.

    I prayed earnestly to God about it. I said to Him that I believe the Bible so I believed that there was no forgiveness for this sin. Yet I was confused because I have a friend who said he has blasphemed the Holy Spirit. He was now telling people of God’s love, so I could see that he was under God’s grace. How could I reconcile the two.

    There are few times that I can say that I have received revelation from God. This is one of them: just one word, in fact – Jonah. I immediately opened my Bible to Jonah and read it. I saw that God had passed sentence on Nineveh, yet when they repented He did not carry out the sentence He had decreed on them.

    In the same way, although God has said that the sentence for people who blaspheme the Holy Spirit is that they will never be forgiven, He does not have to carry out His sentence. I adore God’s grace and love and suggest that people who are concerned that they or their friends have committed this sin seek His forgiveness.

    • … although I would be inclined to think that anyone who had really committed this sin would not be interested in knowing God any more. Anyone really interested in knowing God shows evidence that the Spirit of God is at work in their lives.

    • Kingdom Seeker says:

      What does being forgiven mean? It means that the sin is counted as one that Our Lord paid for by His death. And since God is just, then one is justified or counted as though one did not do what he is accussed of. Mind you there is something else known as guilt. Anyway, when one is not forgiven, it means that one will have to bear the consequencies of his action or sin. Bearing the consequencies for ones actions does not necessarily translate to eternal damnation. We are judged by God so that we will not be judged with the world. Also it is written that the rod is for fool’s backs.
      Also, again, this type of sin is not a daily occurrence. You see it is written in Romans 8:14 ‘…for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, them are the sons of God.’ At this level, accountability is demanded by the Lord who is the Spirit (2 Cor3:17). That is why, when Moses struck the stone instead of speaking to it, he died of that sin and didn’t enter Canaan and yet he and Elijah appeared to our Lord on that mountain. (Anyway there children and there are sons and there is a distinction between the two.)
      Again we see what happened to David in the incidence involving Uriah. This story is recorded 2 Samuel 12 especially verse 14 and the other judgements against David. Yet we know the position David holds in the ancestry of our Lord and Savior Jesus.

    • new creature says:

      Amen! And, seek God for the power, wisdom and strength to over come sin. This was the reason why the Holy Spirit was sent, to make Jesus known to us and in us, and thus through us. Jesus said if we being evil give good things to our children when they ask, how much more will our Father in Heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him. Ask Him those who have offended Christ. David cried take not Your Holy Spirit from me! Good prayer David bar Jesse. Peace in Jesus.

  2. When Christ mentioned the sin of Blaspheming the Holy Ghost he was speaking to the Scribes and Pharasies, these were men who NEW BETTER . they new the word of God and they still condemed the acts of the Holy Ghost. I believe that the only individuals who could comitt the sin of blaspheming the Holy Ghost are those who have had the Holy Ghost and have denied him. they are individuals who have known God and have rejected him and walked away from him and when people mention God’s good works they scoof at them and say there is no God.
    When people know better and still cast down the works of God with their tongue, God will hold them accountable. God only winks at ignorance but never when a person who knows better and still is disrepectful then God will condem this act. To sum things up it is irreverence to the things and acts of God when one knows better. Disrespect.

    In the book of Acts 2 people died for lying as Peter put it to the HOLY GHOST. Both were given ample opportunity to correct themselves but thought they could get away with LYING to the HOLY GHOST – it is to bad death hato enter the BODY over money but alas GOD IS NOT MOCKED – many speculate on this and that and what this means or what that means but the scriptures are given for our admonition – Do what pleases God in Love and don’t lie as this is the sin that brought the Human race to the sad state it was & that God had to SEND His only BEGOTTEN Son to die and forsake Him for the moment in our place so that WE WOULD NOT HAVE TO BE ETERNALLY SEPERATED FROM HIS GLORIOUS MERCY and LOVE.

  4. Kingdom Seeker says:

    Let us approach the subject from this angle. How does one get pardoned? It is that we agree with God that we have sinned. Then we ask the Lord to forgive us. Since every sin must be punished we are forgiven on the basis that Jesus was punished in our behalf. that means we are justified or counted as if we never sinned on account of our faith in the blood of Jesus. As it is written in 1 John 1:9 He forgives our sins and purifies us from all unrighteousness. That means there is some fire in order to be purified. But that is not punishment.
    Now you blaspheme the Holy Spirit you get punished without the option of pleading the blood. That just clears the account and that means you will not be judged with world. It shows us that we have to respect the Holy Spirit for He is very close to us and He is responsible for our moment by moment walk.Just don’t be overly scared He disciplines the son He loves. He teaches us how to walk in the Lord and it is necessary that we be disciplined. ‘Unpardonable’ does not mean eternal damnation it is like something done along the way and it is done away with. You will love Him for that. He is good. Hallelu Ya!

    If one blasphemes the Holy Spirit they can not be forgiven;
    if one does not blaspheme the Holy Spirit they can be forgiven.

  6. newlight says:

    To be perfectly honest with you “Guest” sorry you haven’t given your username. I in my evil days have blaspemed the holy spirit for I listened to a song countless times called “Blasphemy of the holy ghost” This is a very bad sin to do don’t get me wrong but i do believe it is forgivable, I agree with Jspring’s opinion though, the more you do it the harder it is to get back, the people that wrote that song (I won’t even mention the name of the band) are obviously extremely satanic and want to corrupt people as much as possible and blasphemy of the holy trinity in general is their goal. I still feel the power of the holy spirit in me though, even sometimes when i am not in prayer but just having good thoughts and realizations. Just be very careful to not do it in future as once again as jspring said earlier it will be harder and harder to get back with every blaphemy and denial of its help.

  7. lookinforacity says:

    It is always important to look at the context in which scripture has been used in the bible.
    Jesus makes statements about Blaspheming the Holy Spirit, why did He make these statements?
    Notice He did not say verily, verily before He spoke, as when He was teaching, this was a response to statements made by the Pharisee.

    Mat 12:24
    But when the Pharisees heard it, (THEY SAID), This fellow doth not cast out devils, but (BY BEELZABUB THE PRINCE OF DEVILS).

    Jesus’ immediate response to the statement made by the Pharisee was.

    Mat 12:26
    And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

    Mat 12:31
    Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the (BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST) shall not be forgiven unto men.

    Mat 12:32
    And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but (WHOSOEVER SPEAKETH AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST), it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

    Jesus went on further teaching them.

    Mat 12:36
    But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

    Mat 12:37
    For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

    That is the context of the scripture concerning Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit, Jesus said that man could speak against Him, and it would be forgiven, but not against the Holy Spirit.
    I have been taught that the sin of Blasphemy against the holy Spirit will not be tolerated by God, because the Holy Spirit only lifts up Jesus, and will never defend Himself, so God does. So you can see that refusing the gift of Grace, is not speaking against or vilifying the Holy Spirit.
    It is also needful to understand just what Blasphemy is. The Definition.

    From G989; vilification (especially against God): – blasphemy, evil speaking, railing.

    scurrilous, that is, calumnious (against man), or (specifically) impious (against God): – blasphemer (-mous), railing.


    • Sanderson says:


      Can you help explain this? I’m not asking you to put alot of time into it, but just the basic principle. I included the surounding verses, but I’m most interested in v.27 Where “entering the strong mans house” is discussed and how do you Identify the Strong Man who has entered?

      Thanks in advance, if you have time.

      25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 27No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

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

      • Holyroller_11 says:

        Some of the strongest used to saints,have deceived many,satan just loves to tear down and used these people who can do more damage to young converts than they ever helped in the life.It is better not to know the way,than to know and reject it later, except the days be shortened the very elect would be deceived,…do not worry,who is able to pluck us out of his hand as long as we put our trust in him,sometimes I get a little deep but would not want to confuse anyone,I know only Christ and him crucified,rose from the dead and sets on the right hand of God,thanks be to God,bless you all occupy til he comes,amen,holyroller is blessed by you all.

      • lookinforacity says:

        Hi Sanderson

        I have placed the three places this event is mentioned, in order to see everything being spoken of, for better clarity.

        Mat 12:28,29
        29) (OR ELSE HOW CAN ONE ENTER) into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, (EXCEPT HE FIRST BIND THE STRONG MAN)? and then he will spoil his house.

        Mar 3:27
        No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, (EXCEPT HE WILL FIRST BIND THE STRONG MAN); and then he will spoil his house.

        Luk 11:20-22
        21) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
        22) (BUT WHEN A STRONGER THAN HE SHALL COME UPON HIM), and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

        Knowing that Satan is the Strong Man, the question then arises, where is this house Jesus was speaking of?
        I say the house (WAS) this World, for it says.

        Now is the judgment of this world: (NOW SHALL THE PRINCE OF THIS WORLD BE CAST OUT).

        Joh 3:17
        For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that (THE WORLD THROUGH HIM) might be saved.

        1) Jesus came into the world as the Messiah (Anointed King, Priest) of God.
        2) Jesus brought the (Kingdom of God) into this world.
        3) Jesus through the (Power of the Holy Spirit) overcame Satan the (Strong Man).
        4) I Identify the one entering the Strong Mans House, to spoil his goods, as (JESUS THE CHRIST).

        Be Blessed

  8. If one knows that the Lord speaks, by His Holy Spirit, and continues to deny Him speaking and instead go on walking their lives according to only what they want…then they have blasphemied the Holy Spirit. Remember, the Spirit, Jesus, and God the Father are not separate. So, if you know God speaks, you continue to walk in your carnal nature, disregarding His leading knowingly…then you haven’t fully received the gift of Jesus from God. Afterall, this is why Jesus came – to reveal that His Spirit is alive & to show us how to walk by the Spirit…in addition, leaving the Spirit for us to learn how to be with Him and walk with Him and the Father. To deny the Spirit leading you in ALL areas of your life, is to deny Jesus as being Lord of your entire life. And we all know that if you deny the Son, you deny the Father also. The key is to allow the Spirit to lead you into all Truth in all areas of your life, so that you serve Jesus wholly and completely and do whatever the Father wants you to do also, for His kingdom purposes.

    Once you begin to deny the Spirit’s leading, it gets harder and harder to come back. So, it’s best to focus on hearing Him in all areas of your life so that you do not ever deny the Spirit, nor Jesus, nor the Father. The more you do it in the little things, the better you get at hearing Him and being led by Him. Once you have the little things down, He can trust you in the big things…to be led. If He knows every hair on your head, He believes every little thing is important in your life. Go to the Spirit in the details also, not just the big things.

  9. Isn’t blaspheming the Holy Spirit refusing to accept God’s free gift of grace? So, if you have accepted Christ, you aren’t in danger of committing this unforgivable
    Grace and Peace to you,

  10. Redbuck40 says:

    We are only justified for eternity if we die in Christ. While alive we can lose our salvation. See in Romans about the tree or in Hebrews:

    For it is impossible to keep on restoring to repentance time and again people who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have become sharers of the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of God’s word and the powers of the coming age, and who have fallen away, as long as they continue to crucify to themselves the Son of God and to expose him to public ridicule. For when the ground soaks up rain that often falls on it and continues producing vegetation useful to those for whom it is cultivated, it receives a blessing from God. However, if it continues to produce thorns and thistles, it is worthless and in danger of being cursed, and in the end will be burned.
    (Heb 6:4-8)

    For if we choose to go on sinning after we have received the full knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but only a terrifying prospect of judgment and a raging fire that will consume the enemies of God Anyone who violates the law of Moses dies without mercy “on the testimony of two or three witnesses.” How much more severe a punishment do you think that person deserves who tramples on God’s Son, treats as common the blood of the covenant by which it was sanctified, and insults the Spirit of grace? For we know the one who said, “Vengeance belongs to me; I will pay them back,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”
    (Heb 10:26-30)

    So therefore if you blaspheme The Holy Spirit there is no going back!
