The Unforgivable Sin

     Where, exactly, is that sin mentioned in the Scriptures? Let’s look at the gospels:

     Matthew 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

     Matthew 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.

     Matthew 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. KJV

     You can say anything you like about the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son in a flesh and blood body, but you cannot speak against the Holy Spirit, because it will not be forgiven in this life nor in the world to come, which of course, is the eternity. That is a pretty strong statement and it reflects the gravity and the enormity of how our Lord feels about someone doing this.

     So, it’s a sin that cannot be forgiven of any man or woman.

     Let’s go to the book of Mark:

     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:

     Mark 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: KJV

     Mark comes right to the point and says that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will NEVER be forgiven.

     How about the book of Luke:

     Luke 12:10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

     Luke 12:11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: KJV

     Here in Luke we find out HOW and WHEN that sin can be committed. You will notice that verse 11 begins with the word and, which connects it with the previous verse. It’s not a polysyndeton because that word means many and’s.

     A good example of many and’s would be in Genesis, chapter 1:

     Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

     Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

     Genesis 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

     Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

     Genesis 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. KJV.


     In fact, from verse 2 through 26, each and every verse begins with the word and, which means that something very important is contained within each succeeding verse. There are 25 consecutive verses that begin with the word and.

     But in Luke 12:10 and 11, the word and simply continues the thought from verse 10.

     Now, let’s add verse 12 to the thought:

     Luke 12:12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. KJV

     The Holy Spirit will speak through you, through your mouth. The thoughts and words of the Holy Spirit will come out of your mouth and denying the Holy Spirit to do that, one commits the unforgivable sin.

     Under what conditions or what situation can the words of the Holy Spirit be denied by a human being?

     Luke 12:11 gives us the one and only condition or set of circumstances by which someone can deny the Holy Spirit to speak through them and that will be during the tribulation of Satan/Antichrist, that five-month period that precedes the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

     Luke 12:11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: KJV

     And only one of Father’s Election will ever be brought up before Satan/Antichrist during that time because they will be the only ones that will know that the entity standing there in Jerusalem is the fake Jesus, not the true Jesus.

     It would serve no purpose to have someone who is deceived to come before his councils because the power of the Holy Spirit would never come through the mouth of someone who is deceived, someone that believes that Satan/Antichrist is the true Messiah.

     Those that are delivered up will speak AGAINST Satan/Antichrist, to say the words that will expose him as the fraud he is.

     And when the Holy Spirit speaks through one of Father’s Election, at that time, it will be just like in the days of the Apostles when they spoke before the crowds and every person standing there, regardless of where they were from, understood every word that came out of the Apostles' mouth. We can read of that in the book of Acts:

     Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. KJV

     This is not speaking in tongues, a practice that some churches engage in.

     The Apostles spoke with one tongue, one language, the language of the Holy Spirit, but it was interpreted and understood by every other person standing in front of them, regardless of what language they spoke naturally.

     Acts 2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

     Acts 2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? KJV

     The unforgivable sin is to deny the Holy Spirit from speaking through you as you stand there before Satan/Antichrist and because ONLY Father’s Election will be chosen for that task, I don’t believe that they will go against the will of the Holy Spirit.

     So, is it possible for anyone, in the past, or today, to have committed the unforgivable sin? Not a chance, because it can only happen during the five-month tribulation period of Satan/Antichrist and he has not come yet.

     You will know of a certainty when he does because he will look just like Jesus Christ, he will act and speak exactly like Him and if you are not careful, if you don’t have the foundation already in your mind, your brain, that the false messiah comes before the true, then you also will be deceived.

     So, rest easy in this knowledge from our Lord. It cannot be committed UNTIL the false messiah, Satan/Antichrist, stands in Jerusalem, before the entire world, claiming to be the Son of God.

     Every news agency around the world will be there to cover that event and it hasn’t happened as yet.
