Sin Against the Holy Ghost

 
The mysterious and frightening words of Mathew 12: 3, have frightened Christians
ever since the beginning  .... "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." So we really should find out what this unforgiveable
sin is, so we can avoid doing it at all costs.

Act 5:1 - 5  But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a
possession, And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and
brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why
hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the
price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was
it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou
hast not lied unto men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these words fell down,
and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.

Thank you for your help David. I am sorry I have not written to thank
you earlier. You have been very helpful to me. I have though just something bugging
me regarding salvation. What is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and can it be forgiven.
(Its simply rejecting the HolySpirit's leading and guidings to accept JESUS as your
Saviour and if you have done it, then you didn;t resist, and can never be accused for
rejecting his love, and the forgiveness of all your sins. If you had rejected Him, you
would have rejected his forgiveness and then he could never forgive you. But
thankfully you didn;t and so you don;t have to worry but just go on with the Lord)

Jesus was sacrificed for all sin, but he said no one would be forgiven for that
particular sin. (Exactly) Surely he died for it? (Not that one, as He can;t force his
forgiveness on anyone if they reject Him, they have to choose it by CHOICE) will
those who have blasphemed never be saved because of the sin they commited?
(They have to pay for their own sins, and the wages of sin is death)

Could it be that God will not lead them who commit it to repentance? (He tried
to...but they hardened their hearts, nevertheless maybe in hell or in the hereafter,
they shall have a change of heart and be allowed another chance, for the mercy of
the Lord is everlasting)

Surely someone like the apostle Paul might have commited it (We all commit the
most outrageous sins worthy of death like King david who was quilty of rape, and
even murder to cover up his rape.... but there is still forgiveness of all sins from the
Lord. For he and she that has been forgiven little, loveth little. And that just means
we don;t have to sin more, but see how really bad our sin has been and repent, and
be the lowest because Jesus is the only reason we can have Salvation, and it is not
because of any of our own goodness. Amen?)

and been forgiven? I think God can forgive them but I am not sure whether he has or
will? (He has forgiven us when we accepted His Son, for our past sins, present sins
and even future sins, for we still are sinners, and always will be. So just thank the
Lord for the LORD, and let's do our best in sharing His Love and promise for total
forgiveness to ALL that want it. Don't you agree ?. Cause once you are saved, you
are always saved, and we don;t have to any longer worry about 'Sinning against the
Holy Ghost')

Love in Jesus
