What is the Unforgivable Sin?

The Unforgivable SinWhat is the Unforgivable Sin?

The thought of having committed the unforgivable sin has been placed on so many Christians and it’s a tremendous burden to carry. Especially those who attend these false Christian churches of today. They question the peculiar/unbiblical happenings around them and the strange teachings being taught and they are told by the Pastor or congregants that they are blaspheming the Holy Spirit and therefore have committed the unforgivable sin.

“…Modern Protestant interpretations of the sin include the deliberate labeling of good as evil, as rejecting the conviction of the Holy Spirit, of publicly attributing the work of the Holy Spirit to Satan.”  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_sin

Matthew 12:24 “But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.”

Matthew 12:31-32 ” 31Wherefore 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. 32And 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.”

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.”

Fear that you have committed the unforgivable sin is totally unnecessary.  All sin is forgivable, including blasphemy. Remember this, Peter denied Jesus Christ 3 times, yet Jesus Christ forgave him. (Luke 22:54-62)

So what is this unforgivable sin?

The unpardonable sin against the Holy Spirit existed only while Jesus Christ was ministering on earth. The unpardonable sin, like the one in (Matthew 12); cannot be committed today. We are not able to attribute the miracles of God to Satan, like the Pharisees did to Jesus Christ when He performed miracles right in front of them.

The Jewish leaders / Pharisees of Jesus Christ’s day committed the unforgivable sin by accusing Jesus Christ in person while He was on earth, of being demon possessed. They had no excuse saying that. They didn’t do this because they misunderstood Him or say this out of downright ignorance; the Pharisees knew fully well that Jesus Christ was their Messiah sent by God to save Israel. They knew Old testament prophecies were being fulfilled left right and center. They personally saw Jesus Christ’s miraculous works, and they heard Him preach the Gospel Truth. But they deliberately went out of their way to deny the Truth and slander/blaspheme the Holy Spirit by saying that Jesus Christ was empowered by a demon named Beelzebub (Matthew 12:24).

They connected Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit’s power directly to Hell and not to God. They stood right before Jesus Christ the Son of God and defiantly closed their eyes and became willfully blind. They had rejected Him outright. Jesus Christ was saying that this was blasphemy of the Holy Spirit – it was unforgivable.

The sin of unbelief:

It is important to note, that if people reject Jesus Christ, they are committing the sin of unbelief.  A person who lives their entire life in unbelief until his death, will not be forgiven. This unbelieving person will spend their eternity in hell.

2 Corinthians 7:10 “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”

The sin of denying Christ after you have known Him:

Hebrews 6:4-6  “4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

2 Timothy 3:5 “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

As the Holy Spirit draws all men until Himself (John 6:44), many many people have shared in the Holy Spirit’s convicting work of sin in their lives and have had a little taste of heaven. But after a while these people reject Jesus Christ outright and fall away – they want nothing to do with God.  They have rejected Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and His gift of salvation and have said for example; “I tried following Jesus Christ and He’s a myth, He’s plain rubbish. I’m an Atheist now – there is no God.” By doing this they are in fact crucifying Jesus Christ the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public shame.  There are no second chances for those who believed in Jesus Christ and then denied Him outright thereafter.  These people were never saved to begin with; they knew Jesus Christ, believed in Him to a point, they appeared godly (false Christians) but denied God’s power in their lives. They were never saved to start with and because of the hardening of their hart which will be because of the permanent decision they make, they can’t be renewed.

The Mark of the Beast:

Revelation 13:15-18  “15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

Revelation 14:9-11   “9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Revelation 14:10-11 “10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

The Mark of the Beast is a mark that will be placed in or on a person’s forehead or right hand during the 7 years Tribulation as a sign of allegiance to the Antichrist. People will take the Mark of the Beast through deception (signs and miracles – Revelation 19:20) and coercion (you wont be able to buy or sell -Revelation 13:17). Receiving the Mark of the Beast means pledging total, never ending allegiance to the Antichrist (Revelation 14:9; 16:2) and WORSHIPING him. All those who refuse to worship the ‘image of the beast’ will be killed. (Revelation 13:15)

Can a person who receives the Mark of the Beast be forgiven and saved by Jesus Christ after they have made this dreadful decision? The answer lies within the following verses (Revelation 14:10–11).  No, you can’t.  The moment you accept and declare your allegiance to Satan you will “…drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Ones eternal destiny is totally at stake and the lake of fire (hell) is reserved for all those who take the Mark of the Beast.  If you take this Mark, which will be clearly identified to all, so no one will take it without realizing what they are taking, you will be denying God outright and worshiping Satan as your master instead. You will be eternally separated from God.

And everyone who has taken the Mark of the Beast will develop the most horrific sores on their body.

Revelation 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

    Hi Deborah,

    I came across this website last night and I am absolutely trilled by all the info.thank you!

    I left the Church of my Childhood 2 years ago as I had a hunger for deeper knowledge of the Lord and his Word and because they could not makeup their minds about the gay issue.If I look back now I realize that the Holy Spirit assist me all the way while I was studying on my own. I recently went to another church and the pastor is really spirit filled and I so happy to be part of a familie in Christ again. Great was my shock when they invited an obvious NAR pastor and the Dazed/ first words out of his mounth was Kingdom now, 5 fold ministry etc. He even played weird music and instructed us to say the following over and over “I am a house of prayer……..the rest I cannot remember”. We were supposed to wait for the Holy Spirit.

    My dilemma is that I do not know where to go now as it seems All The dominations are infiltrated by word/Faith, NAR movement. I live in the Somerset West and would like to hookup with a group that believe in the Sola scriptural, fide,gratia, Christus & Gloria.

    William Booth said the following a 100 years ago:

    I consider that the chief dangers wich confront the coming century will be:

    Religion without the Holy Ghost
    Christianity without Christ
    Forgiveness without repentance
    Salvation without regeneration,
    Politics without God and heaven without hell

  • Hi Helena Hi/

    Did you know William Booth was a Methodist? And worst of all he was a Freemason: Please see here for proof.

    Helena, just as a matter of interest, are you a Calvinist?

  • Helena

    HI Deborah

    I am not Methodist or Calvinist

    I grew up in the NG Kerk

    I only started recently to investigate the different doctrines because I realized I have to know where I stand on all points.

  • Helena

    Are not most of the dominations in South Africa have roots in freemasonry?

  • Daisy

    Deborah…I understand it being alarming that he was a Mason, but are you concerned about him having been Methodist? (I think back then it was a Biblical denomination and not so erroneous as it is now).

  • Dear Helena

    You said “Are not most of the dominations in South Africa have roots in freemasonry?”

    Yes, possibly all of them.

  • Hi Helena

    Oh that’s good news Smile/ Sometimes we all get caught up in false denominations every now and them and the Holy Spirit shows us quite quickly the errors and tells us to leave…

  • Dear Daisy

    Methodist’s interesting bunch they are. For 1 they believe that Jesus Christ died for everyone in the world (which is true) but they say because of this…everyone is going to heaven.

  • Daisy

    But was that their teaching historically (around Booth’s time) or more recently?

  • Hi Daisy

    Their teaching was rotten from the start and it got progressively worse and worse…

  • Ida

    May God bless the writer of this article. This is vital information for every person. It should be translated into all languages, and distributed to the ends of the earth.
