Pt. 7

The Holy Spirit

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

Matt. 12:31-32 “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.

32 "Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”

slide4

Term is not in the Bible

Mark 3:28-30 “he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness,”

Luke 12:10 “…but to him who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven.”

slide5

It is Not…

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

  • Neglecting salvation until death
  • Attributing to Christ the Power of Beelzebub
  • Committed by those who knew Jesus personally
  • Commit without knowing about it
  • A sin like cursing, adultery, murder
  • Saying: “I don’t want to go to heaven”
slide6

Blasphemy

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

Greek = to speak against, defame, rail, revile

English = disrespect, irreverence, sacrilege

“great disrespect shown to God or to sacred persons or things ”

“The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is therefore to speak evil of, to reject, or to refuse to accept Him or His work as divine and then to hold Him up as an object of ridicule.”

slide7

Three Ages

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

Patriarchal Age

Mosaical Age

Christian Age

Christ speaks to us through the Holy Spirit

God spoke directly to the fathers

God spoke through Moses and the prophets

slide8

Heb. 1:1-2 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2. Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;”

    • In olden days God spoke through the prophets
    • Today God speaks to us through His Son

How ?

slide9

Jn. 14:16 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:26 “But the Comforter, even the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you.”

Jn. 16:13 “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”

slide10

What is the work of the Holy Spirit ?

  • Bear witness of Christ
    • John 15:26-27
  • Convict the world of sin, righteousness and Judgment
  • John 16:7-13
  • Invite men to accept the salvation of Jesus
  • Rev. 22:17
slide11

How does the Holy Spirit do this ?

  • Through the word of God
    • Eph. 6:17 “sword of the spirit, which is the word of God.”
  • The Bible
    • Heb. 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
slide12

The function of the Holy Spirit in the scheme of human redemption is to reveal the will of God to the mind of man.

Matt. 7:21

Heb. 5:8-9

slide13

The only way God reveals His will in This Christian age is through the Holy Spirit.

“but God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit” 1 Cor. 2:10

slide14

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

What is the ?

  • It is rejecting or refusing to acknowledge the revelation given by the Holy Spirit.
    • Blaspheme - speak against, reject
    • Refusal to accept God’s offer of salvation
    • Rejection of the whole system of God
slide15

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

What is the ?

The Holy Spirit is the only way that God has provided for us to know His will.

The Holy Spirit is the means through which God revealed the Gospel.

To reject the gospel, or any condition of salvation contained in the gospel, in a high-handed way [in the manner of blasphemy] is to reject or sin against the Holy Spirit.

slide16

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

What is the ?

No Forgiveness

We cannot know the will of God without the revelation of the Holy Spirit.

We cannot be saved without knowing and obeying the will of God !!!

When we reject the only means by which we can learn God’s will then we cannot be forgiven of our sins.

Therefore:

slide17

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

What is the ?

Can we commit this sin today ?

Yes

Men today still reject the revelation given by the Holy Spirit

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is to reject God’s plan

Not believing that this is the way of salvation offered

slide18

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

Not the Sin unto death

1 Jn. 5:16,17 “If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

17. All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.”

A sin that a Christian commits and refuses to repent !

God is willing to forgive but they will not repent.

slide19

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

How this sin is committed

  • Resist the Holy Spirit
  • Heart is hardened
  • “Quench not the spirit” 1 Thes. 5:19
  • Spiritual eyes and ears are destroyed.
  • “Having ears they hear not and eyes they see not”
  • Mark 8:18
slide21

Don’t resist the urge
