The Black and White of the Unpardonable sin
Having heard several different ideas of the unpardonable sin
I decided to write on an obvious and extreme end of this
subject. I rather felt that by working from this direction
that any difficulties might become clear.
Some may wonder and worry if they have just gone too far and
committed the unpardonable sin. Jesus said, “but whoever
speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him,
either in this age or in the age to come.”(Mt 12:32) A
statement like that should send immediate and strong fear
into anyone who claims the Christian label. For if we still
shoulder our own sins then we are in danger of what Christ
calls the “second death” (Rev 21:8.) This speaking against
the Holy Spirit is again mentioned in Luke 12:10 as
blasphemy but what is this blasphemy of the Holy Spirit?
Well to understand we first need knowledge of what the
Spirit is for how can we avoid our wrongs in ignorance?
The Holy Spirit is the might, power, force, mission, mind,
and direction for Godly works that exists among the family
of God. This power emanates from God the Father. This is not
an exhaustive examination but let’s touch upon some of these
points from scripture.
The spirit is power, notice, “And the Spirit of God was
hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let
there be light”; and there was light”Genesis 1:2. Is this
power or what? Clearly God’s Spirit was there at creation
and only a word was needed to create the awesome sun our
tiny planet circles. Have you ever met someone you had real
magnetism? That is without doing anything could shape events
by what they say? The President has such power. Our
president can cause death and destruction, preserve life,
build cities and more simply by uttering words. There is
power in words. How much more of the power of God’s word and
will called His Holy Spirit? Holy means something set that
is set aside for doing right and good. And God is righteous
and does all good. Counter to this observe that the spirit
in man is rarely holy. Man’s spirit or force is usually bent
on vanity, greed and a host of other evils. But it is God,
His word, His power and His Spirit that drive events or as
God says, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My
mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall
accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing
for which I sent it” Isaiah 55:11. God speaks and things
happen.
His Holy Spirit or force is also put in certain men who God
decides can be used as vessels of good. Jesus said to His
disciples, “you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has
come upon you” Acts 1:8. And that event did occur on
Pentecost as described in Acts chapter two. Here scripture
shows the Spirit coming down as a power saying, “suddenly
there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind”
and “they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to
speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them
utterance.” Peter then stood up to say that the Spirit had
been poured out. And it is by that Spirit which was in them
that the Church began to do the works of God in both deed
and in word for now these individuals began to transcend
human knowledge unto Godly knowledge. The apostle Paul also
wrote of how the Holy Spirit “teaches” 1Cor 2:13 and is “in
you” 1Cor 6:19 giving these selected individuals the, “mind
of Christ” 1Cor 2:16 and to speak the words of the Father or
as Christ taught, “for it is not you who speak, but the
Spirit of your Father who speaks in you”Mt 10:20. But in all
of this it still remains that the Spirit of God is the
power, mind, will and strength which, “proceeds from the
Father” John 15:26.
So what does it mean to blaspheme? It is written in Mark
3:30 that the Scribes (the interpreters of the law) said
Christ had, “an unclean spirit” and by this were
blasphemers. But scripture says that the Spirit that was in
Christ was “of God” Mt 3:16. The Scribes attributed the good
will and intentions of God the Father to the intent and will
and desire of Demons. Just as God has a Spirit of pure good
and right and man has a spirit of vanity, the Demons also
have a spirit which is much lower yet as you will see. And
Demons do have spirits Luke 4:33 and Demons do have
doctrines or agendas, 1Tim 4:1. So the Scribes had words
saying of Christ that, “He has Beelzebub” Mark 3:22, meaning
the spirit in Christ from God the Father was evil. These
were just words but Christ said, “things which proceed out
of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.”
Christ taught that what evil is in your heart is just the
same as the action by teaching things like, “whoever looks
at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery”
Mt 5:28. In a few minutes you should see why these things
are being mentioned but first let’s look at the definition
of blasphemy. The exact word used in Matthew 13:31 comes
from the Greek word “blasphemia” and it means to slander to
detract from and to do injury to by speech. It is the last
definition called injury that I want to focus in on which
will lead you to understand why this article is titled, “The
Black and White of the Unpardonable sin.” Christ taught that
words that come from your heart are as bad as actions. But I
want to focus in on not just the words but the action of
unpardonable sin. The scribes had the words but we will see
the actions.
A few paragraphs back we saw that the Spirit of God the
Father works in Christ and in chosen individuals. This is
the body or the Church. The Spirit carries the direction of
the Church and its doctrines if you will. Demons have
doctrines or direction counter to the truth. So here is the
black and white you’ve been waiting for. Satan is called
the, “adversary” who is “seeking whom he may devour” 1Pe
5:8. Revelation chapter 12 teaches that Satan both pursues
and persecutes the body of Christ. Remember the definition
of blasphemy and how it means to injure by words. Well in
Satan we see an individual who takes the injury to action.
Satan has a doctrine or agenda or spirit to do injury to the
Church. Another definition of blaspheme is the Hebrew
“naqab” which figuratively and literally means to poke
holes. Satan is seeking to poke holes in the doctrines and
direction of God’s elect, the Church, thus attempting to do
injury or blasphemy to God’s Holy Spirit. And what is
Satan’s fate? Certainly it is never forgiveness as Christ
said. Certainly it is the lake of fire Rev 20:10 which is
called the “second death” verse 14. But Satan is not the
only one. For there are individuals among the Church whom
Jude says are, “twice dead” verse 12. These tares that bring
in their doctrines of demons are not simply backsliding
Christians. They are not sinners who trip and mess up and
need to repent from wrong. Rather they like Satan are active
in their agenda to do destruction to the Church. They
attempt to tear at well-established proven doctrine. They
attempt at division among the brethren. These are not
outsiders who have never agreed to the doctrines or knew the
truth but are like Satan and know the truth. And like Satan
hate the truth. Excerpts from 2Peter 2:15-21 say, “They have
forsaken the right way and gone astray…for whom is
reserved the blackness of darkness forever…they speak
great swelling words of emptiness, they allure…they
themselves are slaves of corruption…it would have been
better for them not to have known the way of righteousness,
than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment
delivered to them.” It is clear from the preceding that like
Satan they knew the right way but turned from it. They have
doctrines counter to the truth. And their fate is never
forgiveness. They like Satan are unpardonable.
So the real impending message here is watch that you do not
begin to fight or poke holes at the Spirit of God, at His
work or against the work of those that have His Spirit. For,
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living
God” Hebrews 10:31. Of course this may raise the question of
where is God’s Spirit working? Who are the elect doing His
will? What are the direction and doctrines of God that are
among them? Is there one true Church on this earth right now
and could you recognize it? The answer to this will have to
wait for a following article.
