The Holy Spirit
by D. J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC
Everybody has a definition in their mind as to the meaning for "Blasphemy." Once, as a Baptist," I went on one of their brain washing trips to an amphitheater in Peachtree City, Georgia, and I actually sat through a whole evening listening to one of their evangelists conjure up visions of how people mysteriously died who "Blasphemed" the Holy Spirit. He went on to give some examples of people he knew of personally or who were a friend of a friend of a friend. I often wonder, "what happened to him?"
According to Strong's Concordance the following are definitions for every occurrence in the King James Version of your Bible for every variation of the verb "to Blaspheme:"
(Hebrew) #5006, "Na'ats,"to cause scorn to flourish," Of course scorn means contempt or disdain.
(Hebrew) #1288, "Barak," (by implication) to sarcastically "Bless God."
(Greek) #987, "Blasphemeo," to vilify, speak impiously, defame, revile or speak evil of. (from #989)
(Hebrew) #5344, "Nagab," (to figuratively) "shoot down," "pierce with holes" or "to curse."
(Hebrew) #2778, "Charaph," (to figuratively) defame as if by exposure.
(Hebrew) #1442, "Gadaph," (to figuratively) hack or cut with words.
31 Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy (Strong's #988, "Blasphemia" from #989 "Blasphemos," to speak evil of) will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the (Holy) Spirit will not be forgiven men.
32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man (Yahshua), it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit (Power and Character of the "Mind of Yahweh"), it will not be forgiven him, neither in this world, nor in that which is to come.
Note: Here again we can see inequality between Messiah Yahshua and Yahweh (G-d). Inequality negates the Trinitarian concept for Messiah Yahshua being "Fully God and Fully Man." The word "Fully" indicating Maximum amount or quality. Of course if Satan (source of unrighteous human nature) can cause you to believe that the Holy Spirit is a separate G-d, then you would completely miss this important understanding.
Now listen with your heart and mind very carefully to what I am about to tell you; it is more than the words of "Blasphemy" that separate one from Yahweh; it is the mental "Unrighteous Attitude" behind the words of the "Blasphemer" that separates one from Yahweh. An unrighteous mental "Attitude" of "Blasphemy" is not a mental "Attitude" of "Love" expressed as willful obedience toward Yahweh, and is therefore a mental attitude of disdain towards Yahweh and His Holy Spirit (Mental Attitude of Love, which is YHWH Righteousness Seeking Character).
So with this in mind . . . I faithfully and truthfully tell you that . . .
Anyone, who doesn't express a constant attempt at obedience to all the words of Yahweh, that person does not "Love" Yahweh, and is therefore a Blasphemer of Yahweh's Holy Spirit.
19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your seed;
20 to love Yahweh your G-d, to obey his voice, and to cleave to him; for He is your life, and the length of your days; that you may dwell in the land (The Coming Kingdom of Yahweh on Earth) which Yahweh swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
1 John 2:3-6
3 This is how we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments.
4 He who says, "I know him," and doesn't keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoever keeps his word, G-d's love has most assuredly been perfected in him. This is how we know that we are in him:
6 he who says he remains in him ought himself also to walk just like he walked.
Think on these things
When you look at yourself in the "Spiritual Mirror,"
do you see the "Image of G-d?"
When you look down at the path of your life,
do you see the footprints of Messiah
going on before you?
8 Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think about these things.
