      Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

      Excerpts from https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.got...ly-Spirit.html

      The term*blasphemy*may be generally defined as “defiant irreverence.” The term can be applied to such sins as cursing God or willfully degrading things relating to God. Blasphemy is also attributing some evil to God or denying Him some good that we should attribute to Him. This particular case of blasphemy, however, is called “the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit” in Matthew 12:31. The Pharisees, having witnessed irrefutable proof that Jesus was working miracles in the power of the Holy Spirit, claimed instead that the Lord was possessed by a demon (Matthew 12:24). Notice in Mark 3:30 Jesus is very specific about what the Pharisees did to commit blasphemy against the Holy Spirit: “He said this because they were saying, ‘He has an impure spirit.’”

      Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit has to do with accusing Jesus Christ of being demon-possessed instead of Spirit-filled. This particular type of blasphemy cannot be duplicated today. The Pharisees were in a unique moment in history: they had the Law and the Prophets, they had the Holy Spirit stirring their hearts, they had the Son of God Himself standing right in front of them, and they saw with their own eyes the miracles He did. Never before in the history of the world (and never since) had so much divine light been granted to men; if anyone should have recognized Jesus for who He was, it was the Pharisees. Yet they chose defiance. They purposely attributed the work of the Spirit to the devil, even though they knew the truth and had the proof. Jesus declared their willful blindness to be unpardonable. Their blasphemy against the Holy Spirit was their final rejection of God’s grace. They had set their course, and God was going to let them sail into perdition unhindered.

      Jesus told the crowd that the Pharisees’ blasphemy against the Holy Spirit “will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come” (Matthew 12:32). This is another way of saying that their sin would never be forgiven, ever. Not now, not in eternity. As Mark 3:29 puts it, “They are guilty of an eternal sin.”

      I would like to appologize any readers for my providing the hebrew to english tanakh link with rashi comentary.
      After further reading I found unspeakable teachings in Rashi commentary that appealed to an evil that should have never of been written.
      And so please if a person were to explore the hebrew to english bible.
      Strip rashi from it.

      Are you talking about that thread with all the numbers?
      If you want to rile people up then go to a Christian site and give God ALL the glory for your salvation.

      The numerical composition is a personal work in Faith that has been given freely.

      The rashi comentary is in most if not all hebrew to english tanakh(bibles).
      I was studying the comparisons of word translation form hebrew in specific areas to confirm something on a personal level.

      Again, be vigilant.
      The rashi comentary commits unspeakable words

      Which is what blaspheming the Holy Spirit actually is.


      One would do well to stay away from texts or doctrines that make GOD out as evil ultimately, one must be certain of discernment before proclaiming such also.
      Faith in selfless Unity for Good.
