I Fear I Have Committed "The Unpardonable Sin" or Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit!

Mark Virkler's picture

I have written this blog because I have had four people in the last three weeks approach me with fear that they had committed the unpardonable sin.

The unpardonable sin is: "hardening your heart so it no longer responds to the Holy Spirit."

Let's explore the role of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, so we can respond properly and continuously to His leadings.  

On the cross, Jesus' blood was shed once as an atonement for all sin. As we respond to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and in faith accept Jesus' shed blood on Calvary to wash away our sin, we are cleansed and born anew by the Spirit.

Our fellowship with Almighty God is restored! We can experience daily walks with Him in the Garden. Sometimes I walk with Jesus along the Sea of Galilee and sometimes Jesus asks me to come meet Him at His place, so we stroll through the courts of Heaven! Relationship is restored!


The Holy Spirit IS the New Covenant reality which Jesus ushered in 

  1. The prophets predicted that the New Covenant would involve the release of the Holy Spirit into the heart of the believer (Joel 2:28,29; Isa. 59:21)
  2. All four Gospels agree that Jesus came to baptize us in the Holy Spirit (Matt. 3:11; Mk. 1:8; Lk. 3:16; Jn. 1:33)
  3. Peter concluded his great sermon at Pentecost (Acts 2:38.39) with an “altar call” stating that if they would repent and be baptized they would receive the Holy Spirit. (Hmmm… today we tend to minimize repentance, perhaps skip water baptism and replace "receiving the Holy Spirit" with, “You will receive heaven.")
  4. Since the Holy Spirit is received at salvation it is unwise to renounce Him (Acts 2:38; 8:14-17; 10:44-48; 19:1-7; 2 Cor. 4:6,7; 1 Cor. 6:17). "However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him" (Rom. 8:9). Since the Holy Spirit is received at salvation, it makes sense that when we blaspheme the Holy Spirit, we are renouncing the One Whom we received at salvation. We could say, we are renouncing the Gift of the New Covenant.We are renouncing our salvation. 
  5. We live by the Spirit  "If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit" (Gal. 5:25). Jesus lived completely by the Spirit (Jn. 5:19,20,30). “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God” (Rom. 8:14). "If by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live” (Rom. 8:13). Notice it's all about living by the Spirit! 

The Holy Spirit, living within, speaks from within our hearts

The New Covenant provides restoration of relationship with God through the cleansing blood of Jesus which results in the Holy Spirit indwelling our hearts (1 Cor. 6:19) and releasing God's voice, vision, revelation and anointing upon our lives.

  1. The Holy Spirit teaches us  In the New Covenant, God places His law within our hearts (Jer. 31:31-34; Heb. 8:6-13). This is accomplished by God putting His Spirit within us (Jn. 14:26; 1 Jn. 2:27)
  2. The Ministry of the Spirit – The Holy Spirit releases life and liberty (2 Cor. 3). The  Old Covenant released law and death (Ex. 20; 2 Cor. 3:7).
  3. The Israelites rejected God’s voice – At Mount Sinai, the Israelites chose not to hear God’s voice, but to live out of law (Heb. 12:18-24)  so in the New Covenant God offers His voice again (Heb. 8-10 and Jer. 31:31-34).
  4. Do NOT reject His voice this time! - “TODAY when you HEAR HIS VOICE” (Heb. 3:7-19; 4:7; 12:25), “See that you DO NOT REFUSE THE ONE WHO SPEAKS” (Heb. 12:25).   

God’s passion is fellowship with mankind, walks in the Garden. So “hearing God’s voice,” as the central experience of the Bible, is the essence of the New Covenant. 


Through the indwelling Holy Spirit our relationship with God is restored

  1. Personal acceptance of Christ’s shed blood on the cross removes the barrier of sin, which ushers in God’s Spirit to the believer's heart (1 Cor. 6:17; 2 Pet. 1:4).
  2. The Holy Spirit provides restored relationship with our Heavenly Father, allowing us to once again take walks with God in the Garden in the cool of the day and share our hearts together (Gen. 3:8,9; Gal. 5:25).
  3. The indwelling Holy Spirit grants EVERYTHING: salvation, sanctification, fellowship, revelation, power… (1 Cor. 1:30,31; Jn. 7:38,39; 2 Thess. 2:13:14; Acts 1;8, 2:17,18 and more...).

A short summary of some of the believer's experiences with the Holy Spirit

The statements below are from the conclusion of the book, Intimacy with the Holy Spirit. This book explores hundreds of Scriptures on the Holy Spirit. It is clear that to walk by the Spirit and live by the Spirit is to be constantly energized and guided by His indwelling presence. He directs and fills our hearts and lives. This is what the New Covenant offers to us - life lived in the Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:25). So our prayer is...

  1. Holy Spirit, I come to You. I welcome You (Eph. 1:17,18). I will not grieve You (Eph. 4:25-32).
  2. Holy Spirit, I look to see You, and You show me Your perspective (Jn. 5:19,20,30).
  3. You give me Your thoughts (1 Cor. 2:12-16). You tell me what’s on the heart of God (Heb. 3:7).
  4. I feel You (Ezek. 3:14). You release God’s emotions within me (Gal. 5:22-23).
  5. You guide me. You sanctify me for my life’s work (Matt. 12:18; Rom. 15:16).
  6. You anoint my lips, my mind, my heart, my hands (2 Sam. 23:2; Ex. 28:3;31:3).
  7. You make me creative (Ex. 35:31-33). Let Your words flow through me (Lk. 1:67).
  8. You release Your ability through me (1 Cor. 12:7-11). You release in me the power to be holy (2 Cor. 3:4-6; Jn. 6:63).
  9. You release the power of God to me. Authenticate Your words with Your power (Acts 4:31).
  10. You take me away (Rev. 21:10; 22:17).

The unpardonable sin is not honoring the Holy Spirit

  1. Attributing the works of the Holy Spirit to satan: "He who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him" (Matt. 12:31). 
  • Note the context: Jesus was healing the sick and casting out demons by the Spirit, and the Pharisees were saying it was the work of satan, not the Holy Spirit. They were attributing the work of God to satan!
  • Blasphemy is "to speak evil against, to vilify, to rail against." Why is this sin unpardonable? Well, they saw the compassion of God displayed as Jesus reached out and healed through the power of the Holy Spirit, yet they resisted any conviction of the Holy Spirit concerning the truth that this was God in action. To become hardened to the Holy Spirit's conviction leaves no way to receive or experience the salvation offered through the New Covenant.
  • The solution to this problem is to keep your heart open to the conviction of sin in your life, and repent whenever convicted. Also, cool the judging (Rom. 14:13). 

  1. Turning away from the Holy Spirit: In the case of those who have once been (1) enlightened and (2) have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been (3) made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and (4) have tasted the good word (rhema) of God and (5) the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame (Heb. 6:4-6).

Note on the action: Hebrews 6:4-6 describes the process of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit because it represents the denial of the central covenant that Jesus came to bring. All of those 5 sins are the same: a denial of the gift of the New Covenant, which is a restored relationship with God through the Holy Spirit. 

The Greek word translated “to fall away” is only found this one time in the New Testament and means “to apostatize”  or to totally desert, depart, forsake and abandon your faith. It cannot mean to commit a 'huge' sin, as we will see from the verses below where spiritual leaders commit huge sins and are forgiven. Apostasy is knowingly, willfully, and maliciously turning against the Lord.


  1. Sinning willfully: For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins (Heb. 10:26). Instead we are to confess our sins (James 5:18) and constantly draw upon the Spirit's power to overcome sin (Rom. 8:13; Phil. 4:13; 2 Cor. 3:17,18; 1 Cor. 1:30,31).
  1. Not honoring the Holy Spirit's gifts within individuals in the Body of Christ and yet taking Communion(1 Cor. 11:18-34): Dr. Jon Ruthven suggests the following: The Corinthians were divisive and not honoring of one another (1 Cor. 11:18). This cuts off the ministry of spiritual gifts one to another. THEREFORE, “many were weak, and sick, and some have fallen asleep.” If we will not honor one another (1 Pet. 2:17), enough to allow them to minister the grace of God within them to us (1 Cor. 12:7-14), the result is we will not fully appropriate God’s grace to us. This can result in sickness and death. James surely tells us to receive healing through one another's ministry (Ja. 5:14-16), and here is a blog of 36 One Another commands. I have seen much healing as we minister the grace of God one to another.

So when one turns his back on the gifts and graces of the Holy Spirit, whether within himself or others, he has turned his back on the central reality of the New Covenant, which is the Holy Spirit who ministers the power of God into our lives. Can we stand against the destructive intent of satan if we do not avail ourselves of God's grace? 


The Corinthians were offered the following solution for their problem of sectarianism and not honoring the Holy Spirit within people:

But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world (1 Cor. 11:31-32).

So a nice truth is expressed here: If I quickly and easily repent (change my mind) when the Holy Spirit convicts me, (thus judging myself rightly), then I can stay blessed (Deut. 281:1-14), and not fall under the judgment of God (Deut. 28:15-68).


Repent when convicted and Receive God's Forgiveness! 

Accept that sin IS a part of life - Even the "GREATS" committed sins: Abraham took Lot his relative with him to Israel even though God had told him to leave his relatives (Gen. 12:1;12:5), and he let his wife be moved into two harems (Gen. 12:11-20;20:1-18), yet God considers him the father of those that believe (Rom. 4:11). David committed adultery (2 Sam. 11), and mass murder of his most faithful warriors to cover it up (2 Sam. 11:15-27), and yet God considered David a man after His own heart (Acts 13:22), and brought Jesus Christ through the lineage of David and Bathsheba (the women he committed adultery with). God brought Jesus, the greatest gift the world has ever experienced, through King David's greatest sin. That means God can and will use us, even in the midst of our greatest sins. Peter sinned. He denied Jesus three times (Mk. 14:72) and yet was welcomed back into the fold to preach and teach. So committing horrific sins appears to be a part of life, and it sure does not cut you off from salvation.God truly is a God who works ALL things out for good (Rom. 8:28). So if satan whispers in your ear, "You have committed this huge sin and God's grace will never cover it," just laugh in his face, and let him know that God will probably highlight this sin to release His blessing through. That way, we all stay humble realizing it is the goodness of God and not our strivings that get things done.

  1. Feeling conviction of sin is a GOOD sign: If someone is terrified about committing the unpardonable sin then they almost certainly have not done so, simply because their awareness that they have sinned against God is only present because the Holy Spirit IS PRESENT convicting them of sin (Jn. 16:7,8).
  2. Confess sin, repent (change your mind) and declare God's truth over the situation! As long as we acknowledge that we have sinned and confess it (1 Jn. 1:8-10), Christ's blood covers the sin and fellowship with the Holy Spirit continues on. Salvation is intact. So I have no problem accepting the fact that I am a sinner, saved by grace, and I easily confess any sins the Spirit brings to my mind, declare my sorrow for committing them, and my intention to turn back to righteousness. I then confess truth, "I am cleansed. I am washed by the blood. I put on Christ's righteousness and stand complete IN HIM! Thank You, Lord, for this wonderful salvation!" And I do two-way journaling, letting Jesus speak words of comfort and love into my being.
  3. If necessary, couple a 1-3 day fast with your prayers of repentance: "Is this not the fast which I choose, To loosen the bonds of wickedness, To undo the bands of the yoke, And to let the oppressed go free And break every yoke? "Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry And bring the homeless poor into the house; When you see the naked, to cover him; And not to hide yourself from your own flesh? "Then your light will break out like the dawn, And your recovery will speedily spring forth; And your righteousness will go before you; The glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. "Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; You will cry, and He will say, 'Here I am.' If you remove the yoke from your midst (legalism), The pointing of the finger (judging) and speaking wickedness (speaking negatives), And if you give yourself to the hungry And satisfy the desire of the afflicted, Then your light will rise in darkness And your gloom will become like midday. "And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail (Isa. 58:6-11). 

  4. If necessary, confess your sins to a spiritual person you respect. Ask them to pray for you that the sins be absolved by Christ’s blood and washed away, and removed as far as the East is from the West.  Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much (Jas. 5:16).

  5. When someone says to me, "I believe I've committed the unpardonable sin," I always tell them, "I know you haven't." "Well, how do you know?" "Because you called. If you committed the unpardonable sin you wouldn't care. The Holy Spirit wouldn't be dealing with you at all. You'd be so cold, callous and indifferent that you wouldn't even care if you did. The fact that you're concerned and care is the sign that you haven't. God's Spirit is still dealing with you." But Satan loves to use this as a club over people's head and he beats them to death with it.

 


Renounce when accused by demonic negatives!

Accusation comes from satan (Accusative thoughts which urge your destruction, rather than your repentance): Satan and his demonic host constantly accuse us (Rev. 12:10) and will give us accusative thoughts that we have committed the unpardonable sin, or we cannot be forgiven because the sin we have committed is so bad or so continuous that the blood of Jesus does not cleanse it. He also gives thoughts that we should give up, we will never make it, God no longer loves us. Well, these are all lies from the pit of hell! Christ's blood covers ALL sin (1 Jn. 1:7). God loves us with an un-ending love. NOTHING can separate us from the love of God (Rom. 8:38,39).

  1. Bind demons in Jesus' name: In this case, we need to take authority over the demons of accusation which are speaking these accusative thoughts, and bind and cast them out in Jesus' name. Say, out loud, "In the name of Jesus, I bind this demon of accusation and command you to leave."
  2. Never fix your eyes on yourself: The Bible commands us to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. If we look at ourselves, we see our frame is dust (Ps. 103:14), and therefore weak and unable to keep God's laws (Gal. 6:13-16) so we put no confidence in our flesh (Phil. 3:3). While in this earthly body, we clearly sin (1 Jn. 1:8), and thus need to confess our sins until the day we die and God already knows that. It is ME who needs to accept these truths, and get my eyes OFF my sinfulness and onto Jesus. Whatever we fix our eyes upon grows within us, and whatever grows within us, we become. Therefore, since I don't need weakness, sinfulness, condemnation or self growing within me, I WILL NOT look at me. I will look only where King David chose to look: at the Lord, Whom he set at his right hand (Ps. 16:8; Acts 2:25).
  3. Speak YOUR NEW reality of who you are in Christ. We have consolidated these verses and put them into a confession which you can speak over yourself evening and morning. It is found hereSpeak THIS over yourself to silence the enemy.
  4. ALWAYS live with your eyes fixed on Jesus (Heb. 12:1,2). See Him ALWAYS standing at your right side (Acts 2:25; Ps. 16:8). See yourself cleansed by His blood, clothed in His robe of righteousness (Gal. 3:27), and radiating His glory. Life is ALL about Him and His finished work on the cross which we FREELY avail ourselves of through FAITH in His word. So don't look at yourself, unless you want to become either depressed or prideful. You are not instructed in Scripture to look at yourself. You become a reflection of whom you look at (2 Cor. 3:18). So look ONLY at Jesus and reflect Him and you can live in peace.  
  5. Don't judge others (or yourself): There is no need for any of us to judge who may have committed the unpardonable sin. Eternal judgment is in God’s hands. We do not have the wisdom or authority to execute eternal judgment. The only judgment I desire to make is that I have judged it to be wise to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. We live our lives honoring and loving all people (1 Pet. 2:11 - and this includes ourselves since we are part of ALL PEOPLE). Also, we in everything and for everything give thanks (1 Thess. 5;18; Eph. 5:20). If you are constantly giving thanks as part of your throne room worship, demonic darkness will flee and divine light will flood your heart and mind. 

Thank You, Lord, for Your light which fills me. I bathe in Your light, and darkness has no hold on me.


God promises that we are secure in His passionate embrace!

"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand." (Jn. 10:27-29)

"If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, "For your sake we are being put to death all day long; we were conssidered as sheep to be slaughtered." But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Rom. 8:31-39)

Is Judging a Pastors ministry

Is Judging a Pastors ministry Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit?

-Calvinist sometimes make fun of the Spiritual Gifts...

-Pentecostal claim Spiritual Gifts, miracles in the name of the Holy Spirit...

-Pastors judge others ministry by calling them fake/lukewarm/prosperity only

Is this considered the unforgivable sin?

Wisdom

I do not think it is wise to judge others ministry. It is NEVER wise to speak against the Holy Spirit.

I have a question...if you

I have a question...if you have been saved by accepting Jesus and sealed until the day of redemption..can one lose the seal of the Holy Spirit??

Is Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit continuous grieving and quenching him?

I have heard it said...unbelievers can only Blasphemy..but believers in Christ only quench and grieve.

Your thoughts, please

salvation

Well it is fairly hard to lose your salvation. You have to work on losing it by rejecting God. However here is a verse to consider. Rev_3:5 'He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

Did i committed unpardonable sin ?

I promised in my prayer that i would spent few nights awake commiting time to lord. I love my family so much but There was a moment after i spent the night awake the next morning I got so angry ( This is a strange thing i am usually not a person who gets angered even in some big situations ) on my family members because of some of their actions they were keep bothering me and . I laid down on my bed in anger i became so furious while i was in bed i was thinking about destroying furniture and household items in that moment i uttered something in my mind like satan show your wrath/power. Then after few seconds i rebuked satan i repeatedly said go away satan from my family and from me for few times. The thoughts of destructions which came to mind are so bad i never in my life had these kinds of thoughts on hurting someone this was so strange i would never do anything like that. I kneeled down and prayed to lord to forgive me for my actions. Later this thought came into my mind that i committed unpardonable sin by saying satan show your wrath/power. It made me so sad i was crying inside. That night i again kneeled down i asked the lord to forgive since i don't know that it was the unpardonable sin if i knew it i would never commit it even there was a knife to my neck. This thought of me committing the sin is bothering me so much i am feeling dead and am feeling that i am rejected by lord. There were voices inside my head tormenting me. Did i committed the unpardonable sin ?

Take every thought captive

The Bible says to take every thought captive to Christ. You need to do that. These are demonic accusations. So simply rebuke them and command evil spirits to leave, and then do the 5 things listed above in the section titled: Renounce when accused by demonic negatives!

I fear I have committed the Unpardonable Sin

Hello I want to be honest. I fear I have committed the unpardonable sin. A few years ago I accepted Jesus to be my savior in 2012. As time went on I was living for him, but I had a blasphemous thought come into my mind against the Holy Spirit during the fall season. I was terrified that I committed the unpardonable sin. My heart was very tender and sensitive to this. Soon I fell into a depression, for six months, and thought I had no hope. I thought I was going to hell. As time went on I began to realize it was just a thought, from the enemy, and I came out of the depression. My relationship with God wasn’t as intense afterwards when I got over that. Ever since then I would avoid reading my Bible as much because I doubted my salvation. Throughout the years there would be seasons where I would have more blasphemous thoughts against God and Holy Spirit. I was worried, but again I overcame it. Each time I was worried, yet believed those aren’t my thoughts. I have prayed to God and felt like He was with me. I would tell myself I am going to get into God’s word and not fall into this again, but I didn’t learn the lesson. So now in fall 2018 I had listened to some legalistic teaching about salvation and realize now it was a false doctrine. These past two weeks have been the hardest I have ever been hit with this. I have read almost every article about this sin. It feels like my intelligence has flown out the door and I began mumbling the thoughts by accident. I was again extremely worried. My thoughts and feelings feel blurred. Now I feel numb and think I may have said something about the Holy Spirit. I don’t believe that about the Holy Spirit, but by giving it so much attention I worry that its gone into my heart. Again I now doubt if I’m truly saved person and if I messed up my opportunity to get saved. My heart feels dull and that scares me. I don’t know what to do.

I think I’ve committed the unpardonable sin

I woke up early in the morning and prayed after having a blasphemous thought. I think it was the enemy, I began to pray for Jesus to heal me because I had read about OCD thoughts and then pertaining to religion and thought if I do have it then I should ask God to heal me. I also prayed that he would instill the fear of God in me like the Bible says brings understanding. I then after praying felt calm and had a clear conscience when all of a sudden I thought about the unpardonable sin and how in Mark it talks about after Jesus talking to them about it, that they said he had an unclean spirit. I thought about that and I felt fearful and remembered Hebrews 10:26-29 and feel just like in verse 27 where it talks about a certain fearful expectation of judgement. That’s how I feel described right now very accurately, but I also hope that like in John 16:8 it says that The Holy Spirit will bring conviction. But I don’t know if I’m being convicted or if I’m in a state of fearful expectation of judgment. I am almost certain that I am condemned to an eternity seperated from The Lord Jesus.

Spirit of accusation

I am fully convinced it is a demon of accusation speaking to you and giving you these spontaneous thoughts. So rebuke it in Jesus name and command it to leave. Then fix your eyes on Jesus and worship Him. I suggest you get into two-way journaling which we describe here: https://www.cwgministries.org/Four-Keys-to-Hearing-Gods-Voice Once you enter into two-way journaling, your entire life will change for the better.

I have the feeling that the Holy Spirit left me :(

I´m from Europe and therefore my English is not so good - but I need your advice!

Everything started with a big lie End of April. I had a normal cold, lost my sense of taste and smell but I thought that it might be a tumor and made a big thing out of it.
I exaggerated in my communication and asked brothers and sisters to pray for me because I probably have a tumor.

From April - July I got deeper and deeper in this story, I started to believe that I have probably really a tumor, I made brother and sisters believe in it and I even accused God that HE is punishing me with such an illness. More than 10 doctors told me that for 99 percent there is NO tumor but I didn´t believe them and forced more and more examinations and was communicating that there is probably a tumor. I didn´t tell the truth :( I was convinced that only a MRI with contrast injection would help me to accept that I have no tumor.

I asked the eldest to pray for me who told me that they think that there is no serious illness , my husband was fasting for me before we went to see a specialist who also told me that there is no tumor, God sent 5 different christian doctors who tried to get me out of this "tumor-story", God answered to the prayers of my brother and sisters, but I REJECTED everything and went on to believe that I have a tumor and that I need the MRI with contrast injection. I was blind, deaf and couldn´t stop. I even rejected the voice of the Holy Spirit inside of me who told me to believe my husband, brother and sisters :(

In July I finally got my MRI, my will, and I felt inside that it is wrong to go so far - but I did. And around that time I had the feeling that the Holy Spirit left me :(

I became a believer when I was 12 years old and from that moment on I had peace, joy, love and hope in my heart. Above all the peace in my heart was so strong and people often told me that my eyes are so bright and that they can see the love of Jesus.

Now in July this peace, love, hope went away - there is such an emptiness in my heart, such a darkness and loneliness and I feel NO connection to God. I try to seek forgiveness, I lie on my knees but I can´t find forgiveness, no relief, I can´t read in the Bible or listen to worship-music, I´m restless, can´t sleep, no joy nor hope or comfort, in my soul is no more peace, I try to pray but there are no words, I have no joy or desire to share the gospel, I don´t feel connected to my brother and sisters, I´m scared and my heart is full of fear…

People tell me that I lost my bright eyes, that they look empty, depressed and sad...

I don´t know what to do. My whole life I was scared that I could one day come to that point - that I would loose Jesus. And now I´m so scared that exactly this has happened :(

Repentance, Inner Healing and Deliverance needed

OK, well this is a big learning curve mistake. As whatever you believe for, you receive. You have been believing for illness and so now have picked up demons seeking to bring that upon you. Not a problem as demons can be cast out. I had a lady cast 20 out of me and I felt so much better. So repentance is the first step, and forgiving yourself, God, your friends, the situation and going to your friends and husband and a letter to the doctors saying, I am sorry for my stubborn self will which was so evil and wrong. I repent of my behavior and my actions and seek restoration of good, harmonious relationships. Then, ask the Lord to show you the root cause of your stubborn-self will so you can repent of that and be healed of it. Ask your husband and friends what they see as the root sin and cause of your miss-behavior, and honor and receive the counsel they give you, and act on it in obedience to their counsel. Tell them and yourself and the Lord, that you turn away from this sinful self-will, and pride and woundedness and whatever else they tell you is at the root of your behavior. (i.e. were you seeking more attention, were you feeling rejected and thinking this would be a way to get attention and more love... get to the root of it and repent and ask forgiveness and receive it and turn away from those sins by the power of the Holy Spirit. You will want to go through the 7 prayers that heal the heart. Here is a free worksheet to guide you through along with a training package of me teaching 13 sessions on how to pray through these 7 prayers. http://www.cwgministries.org/free-resources-prayers-that-heal-the-heart the first six prayers remove the anchors the demons use to attach themselves to you, and the 7th prayer is deliverance, where they are cast out. Go through the process carefully, fully and completely so you are completely set free and restored to the joy of the Lord.

I felt like I have committed the unpardonable Sin

I have struggle with fear and anxiety since I was a kid. I received Jesus Christ as my lord and savior 5 years ago and at that time I was not having those thoughts then. The thoughts came when I read the Bible verse and fear came in return. I was so afraid because I did not want God to be mad at me because of the thoughts I was having of him due to the fear. It’s like my body had got use to the fear like a drug and I keep feeling horrible every time I had a thought against God. So I step out on faith and typed in on the internet how to get help with this problem. I felt so much better when I realized if I fear doing it or think I have and trying to get help most likely I didn’t but my mind still tries to wage war. And a bible scripture was revealed to me that the flesh waged war against the spirit, I’m starting to feel better and grow because I was afraid to even look it up, what it’s means to commit the sin because I did not want to do it .

Farther than most

Mark, I fear I may have committed the unpardonable sin. Let me briefly frame that event in my life for you;
-I was sexually abused as a child, which led to a lifetime of sexual immorality until a few months ago when I decided to come clean about everything, repent, and try to live a life for God.
-In the midst of my sin, I would cry out to God asking for forgiveness, and having been taught that repentance is a gift from God, when no dramatic change would occur in my life, I would conclude that God was not willing to offer me the gift of repentance, so I would become angry and continue with my lifestyle.
-On two occasions that I can remember, I was so angry with God that I said vile things against God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These things were said in desperation and irrational rage, but they were said nonetheless. These words were intentional mockeries based on what knowledge I had of God at the time. They were constructs of slanderous language making intentional mockeries of specific attributes of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and the work They have done and are doing in the world but which I felt they were not doing for me. The utterances against the Holy Spirit happened on two occasions, but my tirades against God the Father and God the Son happened on many occasions, and sometimes for really stupid and childish reasons. These rages were always in a spirit of trying to get some sort of reaction out of God (which I now realize is tempting God) rather than the silence I was experiencing (which I now realize was due to my indwelling sin and my unwillingness to turn from it).
I have repented of these sins, and many others, and am now seeking God and His will in my life, but I continually face this fear of having committed the unpardonable sin, and therefore am not able to fully enter in to any uninhibited relationship with God or to feel that I am adopted because as many people who deal with this fear, I feel that I may have had the option of repentance withdrawn from me due to my actions.
So, if the unpardonable sin is in fact lashing out at the Holy Spirit with vile, slanderous, and exceptionally disrespectful utterances, I have indeed committed it, but let me now address one of the comforts I have received in my search for answers. That is; the comfort that anyone who fears they have committed this sin, and finds themselves trembling in terror at the prospect of being damned because of it, has most certainly not committed it. I have some questions about this comfort;
– How do I know my search for answers isn’t simply based on a selfish desire to escape what I have coming to me rather than the drawing and coaxing of the Holy Spirit?
– How do I know that any comfort I receive isn’t simply a construct of my imagination to escape the paralyzing fear of eternal condemnation?

I believe that my inquiry speaks for many people who may not want to be completely honest with themselves about the full extent of what they have said against the Holy Spirit, but let me go ahead and set the leading edge to its fullest by saying that when you reply to this post, assume that I have said the worst things you can think of to the Holy Spirit (because the honest truth is I don’t remember exactly what I said). That will eradicate any tendency to hedge your response or try to minimize the gravity of the words uttered.

So what say you? Do you believe I have committed the unpardonable sin?

You are still under conviction so that is good

At the top of this blog we provide this: The unpardonable sin is: "hardening your heart so it no longer responds to the Holy Spirit." Since you are still hungry for God and want a cleaned up life, you have not comitted that sin. Your writing shows me that you are hungry for the Holy Spirit. What you want, is for Christianity to work, for you to feel God do great changes in your heart and life. So that can occur. I suggest you will need counseling and deliverance to overcome the heart wounds and demons you have picked up. Our training package on "Prayers That Heal the Heart" will assist in that. http://www.cwgministries.org/store/prayers-heal-heart-audio-cd-package or this electronic training module:https://www.cluschoolofthespirit.com/courses/prayers-that-heal-the-heart/ here is a week free of training which will help you a lot:https://www.cluschoolofthespirit.com/courses/free-course-sampler/ and here is a great counselor to help you: Rev.

I too fear that i've committed the unforgiveable sin

I too have this fear
Though I fear it is a genuine fear
I had been getting messages on hard heart
And other times God warning me about sin

I fell into a season of sin for a week
God told me go back to ur old ways see me and preserve ur life
I did to the best way I knew how

But I again fell into sin
I was so heavily convicted about it that I said I dont want this thing any more

I repented of those words
And sought God but I felt as though my name was removed from the book of life

I have had dreams in which God is saying I dont care anymore

I try to pray and study the word but I cant

I feel as though I am disjointed from God

I hear accusing voices saying I am dead
And i've had contempt for tge gift of God

My dreams have changed
And at times I try confessing the word and it comes out wrong

Babies see me and cry others run away

I fear I have seared my conscience
Or that God has given me up to my own heart

My heart seems to abuse God claiming He left me

Could I have committed this sin
If no why does it seem like Holy Ghost left me?

Since you are under conviction the Spirit has not left

If the Spirit had left you, you would not be feeling conviction. You are feeling conviction, so all is FINE!!! The Spirit is WITH you. So rejoice and tell the accuser in your mind (demons) to be still in Jesus name. Say, "I bind you in Jesus name and command you to leave in Jesus name." Do this whenever their accusative thoughts appear. After rebuking them, fix your eyes on Jesus, begin singing worship songs, and meditating on verses about Jesus's love and forgiveness toward you. If you meditate on the accusers lies, you feel empty. If you meditate on Jesus's truths, you feel His presence. Learn to hear His voice, and do two-way journaling daily. Start with this training: https://www.cluschoolofthespirit.com/courses/free-course-sampler/ Go to a good church that honors the Holy Spirit and let them help you.

I think I've committed the unpardonable sin

I've been having really negative, blasphemous and sexually inappropiate thoughts about jesus recently. And i know that this is satan at work. I never had these thoughts before not even when i considered myself a nonbeliever even though i aas catholic at the time. This morning I was reading the bible and listening to a christian radio preaching the bible and I was praying telling Jesus that i gave him my everything and then a bible verse came up and it was about Paul when a God presented himself to him before his reaching Damascus and in my mind I heard a half thought say that it wasn't God who presented himself but... the other one. In other words, the name of the other one wasn't completely spelled out but I recognized that it was his. Ever since then I haven't felt the same. I spent all morning thinking about how I'm going to hell. I asked God for forgiveness if i committed the unpardonable sin, and when I was at work I started to feel like I was giving up hope and I was doomed for eternal damnation. Then fear sank into me. I don't believe this or any of the devils thoughts that come up in my mind sometimes. I'm a recent born again and I've switched churches so im trying to get my momentum back because I was learning things in one church that I'm not learning in this new one. I admit that i struggle to give my will up to God sometimes. But I've been seeking him every day in the morning before i go to bed I read the bible at least once a day go to bible study and church. Have I committed the unpardonable sin? Please let me know.

You are still under conviction so that is good

Since the Holy Spirit is convicting you, that means He is present and you are saved. Repent, and accept the blood of Jesus to wash over your sins, and make you whole again. He will and you will go on to a grand life in Christ. Keep feeding on good spiritual food and you will grow into a tree of righteousness.

I fear; have I committed this sin?

I’m worried because I was in the middle of sinning and I heard the verses relating to the unpardonable sin in my heart and kept sinning anyway but while sinning kept asking God to forgive me because I couldn’t and I didn’t want to stop at the time. After doing so, I was deeply grieved and cried out to God for forgiveness. I asked him repeatedly if I have commited the unpardonable sin. That morning I got a knock on the door and when I answered I got a package of a CD I ordered titled Grace. Yet, I am still deeply afraid that I committed the sin because I kept going and ignored the warnings of the spirit. I keep asking for forgiveness but I’m afraid my fear of this sin is blocking me out. I cannot sleep well and I keep asking for forgiveness. Im bombarded by questions like “How could I have done this for just a moment of worldly pleasure?” I feel guilty and anxious.

Conviction

Since you are still feeling conviction, and it is the Holy Spirit Who convicts, He is still present with you. Receive God's grace and press on with Jesus.

Since you are still being convicted that it is a sin, then yes, you still have the Holy Spirit working in you.

Is just thinking about doing the unforgivable sin committing it?

Is just thinking about doing the unforgivable sin committing it? I rebuke every dart the enemy throws but he keeps suggesting and I’m not quite sure whether my heart is in agreement because one time the suggestion was in first-person (that I should go against the Holy Spirit and take credit for His work). I prayed to God He takes ANYTHING I have away before that happens. I felt like I meant the prayer. But I know whatever we meditate on will go in our heart and eventually become our reality. So I’m fighting.

And if we commit the unforgivable sin just one time by attributing the work of the Holy Spirit to us or the devil, do we go to hell? or do we have to renounce our faith completely for that to happen? (like I think Hebrews 6:4-6 is suggesting) Is the fact you want to repent a sign you are still sensitive to the Holy Spirit?

Thank you

Missed chance to repent

I am very concerned God spoke through a prophet to me and said he was with me to repent and believe or listen to voice of deception in which I had Hebrew 6 passage stuck in head and something was blocking heart to make me believe it could have been unbelief or fear either way I did something to cause holy spirit to depart I have cried every single day and just want the Lord back and his holy spirit and I felt heart hardened I just want the Lord back and sometimes I don’t care which is not good. I don’t want to have committed unpardonable sin or fallen away but I am hope’s and want his spirit back and my relationship with him and could not nelieve. I feel empty and lost on inside. Cuzco did not repent when God said and believe. And God even asked did I want to return and I did and wanted to and realize now the thing that was blocking me was not repenting and believing at time he spoke it is am lost without his spirit in me really concerned everyday that could have been in pardon able sin and I just want to come back to the Lord and have him back like before and I can’t get him to talk to me I am paying inking ever day and crying wanting him back.

Sin.

Sorry please bare with me. I fear I have committed the unpardonable, I was baptized almost 3 months ago and was so happy within saying im saved! And then im scared I willfully sinned 2 weeks after. I used to have the occasional beer thinking it’s fine as im not intoxicated but then went to a football cup final with family who are not in church.. and I did get intoxicated and became boisterous, I feel so bad the day over took me. I wanted to stop completely at baptism but eventually settled on my own understanding. I feel like a dog that has returned to his own vomit. There seemed a battle in my head the week before i thought i wasnt feeling well and now worried whether that was the spirit was convicting me and warning me of that day, could i have been so blind to resist? One week after football I watched my first video about the unpardonable sin and I felt a deep sense of conviction when i read the words of hebrews 10 maybe even physically painful and anxiety ridden in my heart. I straight away recognised the sin and prayed and confessed all sin over and over because of anxiety and forsaken them. But Since then Ive struggled with anxiety and fear and had bad dreams. The holy spirit seemed so distant or had completely left I’d read the word and it was like almost reading it for first time. After a month or two I thought i was getting back on the straight path the word was more open to me and I couldn’t believe I was so blind to some things in the word it was so open. Anxiety was pretty much gone (altho there was still a nagging thought as to my salvation.) So I revisted it 2 days ago so I could find out the truth.. I’ve read up lots of info about this and while it’s obvious that one way of looking at hebrews 10 is down to the jews going back to the old sacrifices hence sinning wilfully because they new the truth, but also i found the old testament talks about presumptuous sins and the great transgression psalm 19 and sin unto death and since I’ve revisted this that same fear and anxiety has returned with a vengeance and getting intrusive thoughts, i fear sin deceived me, I feel maybe the unpardonable has been committed because I didn’t heed the warnings of the holy spirit and presumptiously lent on my understanding not his :(

The unpardonable sin

Hi I’m really worried because the reason I came across this was when I was planning to strengthen my relationship with God and come closer to him so I began reading the bible regularly but then I suffered from intrusive thoughts and clinged to God and he helped me therefore strengthened our bond but eventually I came across and like I usually do when I know I’m not supposed to do something I blasphemed against the holy spirit multiple times without trying to but constantly thinks of it , but tried to use the excuse that Jesus died for out sins.Then I began to suffer from intrusive thoughts again. So I decided to look it up and have discovered every theory and idea and don’t know which is true. I feel as if I’ve let down my family and God and I’ve persistently thought of God’s mercy and salvation but I can’t help but to constantly think of the words in that scripture. I feel as if I’m doomed to eternal hell/sin and there’s no hope for me amongst that evil thoughts come into my head but I tell them I am a child of God. Ever since I’ve felt an emptiness and emotionalless . I’ve given up all hope everyone I’ve asked tells me there’s no such thing as an unpardonable sin and I should trust in God but I feel so far away and distant from him and not worthy. I don’t know who I am anymore. I have these thoughts I should be evil since God doesn’t want me but I can’t that’s not my nature or who I am . I can only try to repent change my ways and do as God wants until my punishment comes. I feel guilty reading other people’s comments who are nerve wracked but I’m sure haven’t committed it whilst I’m sure I Have. Please reply if you could.

I am sure you have not committed this sin

Unpardonable

I was born again two years ago. I walked for a very short time. He revealed himself in several ways to me, and I had peace that surpassed understanding. I began reading the bible at the beginning. As a result, I became extremely legalistic without realizing what I was doing. When the HS warned me by guiding me to Hebrews, my mind latched on to Hebrews 6 and I became terrified. I saw, in black and white, that it was possible to lose salvation. I became terrified, day in and out, panic attacks nightly. Fights with my husband, lost my job due to unrelenting fear. On my knees, crying out constantly for relief. This all began about two months after getting saved. The fear just mounted. In short, I was doing fine, listening and obeying the HS automatically before reading the bible. The bible destroyed my faith. It’s hard to focus on promises when you constantly fear that there is something you can do to ruin everything. Finally, the message I got was “trust, have faith.” This was a huge struggle for me do to lots of betrayal and broken promises in my life. I finally let go and trusted. In that moment, the HS prompted me to do something very specific in order to build up my faith. I think I was tempted to disobey and I did. I don’t know why, and I wasn’t aware that what I was doing was a sin. But the HS had warned me a month prior “TODAY if you hear his voice...” The day after disobeying, I woke up and it felt like a dead weight was on my chest. I knew immediately that my heart had hardened. This was 9 months ago. It’s still hard, and it’s painful. It’s literally my heart, not the bones. The very sin I was terrified of committing I somehow committed. I thought I was doing what He wanted me to do-trust him no matter what. And then he left me permanently, even though he promised he wouldn’t. In the end, I couldn’t count on him either. I live my life in terror and fear because I know what will happen when I die. My entire life has been stolen from me. I had spent my entire life working hard and playing by the rules when nobody helped. God was nowhere during many, many painful events in my life. He chose to reveal himself at a time in my life when I was finally feeling in control and happy for the first time. Then, evil turned me into a ragdoll and the rug was pulled out from under me. People have prayed for over a year with no change. The spirit is not in my life. It is impossible for me to feel any kind of love anymore. I am a gentle, shy person for the most part but now have no purpose. I have actually tried to force myself not to believe and I can’t. All I see now is a God who punishes people for being born into blindness and slavery (because he allowed it). The parables scared me because they are all warnings. The parable of the sower clearly shows various groups of people who hear the word, some even getting saved, but fall away. It is possible, and I’ve found a few others in my position who describe the same heart condition as myself.

Hi did you find any solution ?

I have also commited it. My heart is dead, i can’t feel love anymore. I have sinned willfully and i can’t feel any God sorrow now. I’m totally dead inside and i don’t know who i am anymore. The Spirit has left me. And now i don’t care anymore. I don’t know how to repent my heart is sealed and can’t feel love to be forgiven. I would like to come back to God and not be so foolish but i know i can’t. I have return to my Own vomit like a dog after Beeing born again.

Unpardonable Sin/ reply

I believe you are trying to understand the word of God, but at the same time you are being spiritually abused by the enemy to feel that you are unworthy. The voices in your ears must go in order for you to really allow yourself to hear God and experience His love, because once you do...you will melt like wax, and you will know that you can never dissapoint God...as a matter of fact the Holy Spirit is your teacher, He will lead you, and give you grace that will enable you to succeed. His purpose in your life is to keep you from falling. God does not shout, He does not accuse, and He does not condemn. He language is not the same as the agent of evil, satan. You must learn to distinguish the difference. They cannot be the same. A house divided against itself can not stand. The anxiety that you feel, is because impatience with yourself has set in and you are moving out of step with your teacher. Be patient with God and with yourself. Cast down the condemnation and legalistic thinking...God’s ways are so beyond those things....His word says think on good things...

Rebuke Fear and Bask in His Love

I am going to suggest that you are being controlled by a spirit of fear, and Christ can and will set you free from this. I suggest you "bind the demons of deception and fear and mistrust in Jesus name and command them to leave in Jesus name." Do it out loud several times, with force and emotional energy. They are deceiving and controlling you. Then turn to Jesus and let Him share his love with you. I suggest you do this by memorizing Jn. 3:16, and then writing a love letter to Him and let him respond. The Sea of Galilee, free download can help you in this process. http://www.cwgministries.org/galilee. I would also go to a teem of mature Christians who know how to minister inner healing and deliverance and have them minister to you. You can be free, but you will need to come against the deception that has gained control of your life. Rebuke the deceiver. He has destroyed your life. Jesus came to give you abundant life. Demons are stealing it. There is a lot on this website which you can read which will help you.

Born Again or Made a Contract?

We can make matters so complicated by theology and assumption. If I am born again, the Holy Spirit has imparted His life into my spirit. I become a child of God. As I cherish and nourish this “life seed” as a living spiritual organism His life and nature will increasingly “grow” causing me to grow more and more into His likeness. This is a life matter. (I call this the Organic Gospel.)
If I just made a contract as in an organization the contract might be reversed unless I continue to prove my worthiness. But if I was born, how could I become “unborn?” I may be rebellious and receive discipline, (Hebrews 12:5) Or, we may waste time on natural things and loose our reward. But yet saved as through fire. (1 Cor. 3:14,15.)
Any believer who has any consciousness of sin or concern about the unpardonable sin has certainly not committed it.
Let us commit ourselves unto Him who is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless before the presences of His glory with exceeding joy. Jude 1:24

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

If you are a Christian, you have the Holy Spirit within you as a deposit of things to come. Jesus said He will not lose those given to Him so there is nothing a Christian can do to lose his salvation, because the Holy Spirit is not going to walk out.

But not everybody agrees with this. Many take the warnings in Hebrews to suggest that real Christians can actually apostasise - that having received the Holy Spirit, we can ask or oblige Him to go (i) by denying Him; (ii) by wilful sin etc etc

However both of these two possible actions bring great anguish to the nervous believer. That is because he has been implicitly taught that he has some measure of control over his salvation - perhaps ‘saved by faith, maintained by performance/attitude’. He has been taught the Arminian position that ‘perseverance of the saints’ is a requirement on us, rather than a promise by God.

The warning about ‘wilful’ or ‘continuous’ sin is particularly harmful in that it brings severe introspection and. like the pre-Reformation Martin Luther, a conscience so weak and tenderised that he could only see God as waiting to accuse him at every turn. Sadly, however much we might encourage those with a nervous conscience that they have not committed the unforgivable sin because they have asked about it, the fact that this scenario keeps it open as a possibility will mean their fears will never be truly comforted

Either salvation is wrought by God (100%) from start to finish, and thereby we might have assurance - or we play some part of spotting and confessing our sins (in which case we might as well return to the Catholic church)

Unpardonable Sin

For years I've been battling guilt of committing this sin. It all began when I was 17. I read a book about hell, and then afterwards intrusive thoughts about blasphemy against the HG kept coming to mind---and profusely. It depressed me and developed an anxiety disorder as a result, and I couldn't take it, and in anger, I lashed out and called the HG stupid, and I live in fear and guilt today. Today, I'm 32, and I LOVE the Lord, however, I've been depressed and fearful ever since.

I was a very devout Christian who loved the Lord, His Spirit, and His word--I still do, but I feel hopeless.

You can help others with what you experienced, you will not judge them. Rest in Him and feel His love for you, let guilt go. “Be still and know that I am God.”

You have NOT committed this sin.

I absolutely know you have not committed this sin. Below is a quote from the article above, which is what makes me so sure. And I recommend you move forward, by learning to do the two way journaling we teach here: http://www.cwgministries.org/Four-Keys-to-Hearing-Gods-Voice. Feeling conviction of sin is a GOOD sign: If someone is terrified about committing the unpardonable sin then they almost certainly have not done so, simply because their awareness that they have sinned against God is only present because the Holy Spirit IS PRESENT convicting them of sin (Jn. 16:7,8). Confess sin, repent (change your mind) and declare God's truth over the situation! As long as we acknowledge that we have sinned and confess it (1 Jn. 1:8-10), Christ's blood covers the sin and fellowship with the Holy Spirit continues on. Salvation is intact. So I have no problem accepting the fact that I am a sinner, saved by grace, and I easily confess any sins the Spirit brings to my mind, declare my sorrow for committing them, and my intention to turn back to righteousness. I then confess truth, "I am cleansed. I am washed by the blood. I put on Christ's righteousness and stand complete IN HIM! Thank You, Lord, for this wonderful salvation!" And I do two-way journaling, letting Jesus speak words of comfort and love into my being. When someone says to me, "I believe I've committed the unpardonable sin," I always tell them, "I know you haven't." "Well, how do you know?" "Because you called. If you committed the unpardonable sin you wouldn't care. The Holy Spirit wouldn't be dealing with you at all. You'd be so cold, callous and indifferent that you wouldn't even care if you did. The fact that you're concerned and care is the sign that you haven't. God's Spirit is still dealing with you." But Satan loves to use this as a club over people's head and he beats them to death with it.

However, the sad news is that there are many others who are terrified over the unpardonable sin, are finding it hard to locate ministers who understand the root and cause of these fears. Many pastors are not equipped to minister complete freedom to such persons. The purpose of this practical guide is to point pastors and ministers in the right direction so they are better equipped to minister complete freedom to people who are terrified that they have committed the unpardonable sin.

Unpardonable sin

Hi! I am excited to see that someone has the courage to define this sin. I spent several years believing that I had committed it. I felt I could never be a Christian again after I walked away at age 15. I read the Bible daily and prayed for my children but did not feel I could approach the Lord for myself. Now as a mature Christian I know this was kind of silly. However, my heart had been convinced by the liar and religion.
One day I just told the Lord out loud that no matter what I would love him and try to serve him. Even if he never listened or blessed me again.
My life changed that day. Later after much prayer and talking to Holy Spirit I came to the conclusion that the unpardonable sin was to reject the Jesus that Holy Spirit leads us to. No one can be saved without going thru Jesus and no one can come to the father with out the calling of the Holy Ghost first.

Thank You
