Have I Blasphemed the Holy Spirit?
Let us start with the Bible Verses against Blasphemy – The unforgivable sin.
#1 Bible Verse about Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit

#2 Bible Verse about Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit

#3 Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit Bible Verse
Luke 12:10b, ESV but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
But what does this all mean? Let’s take a look at what happened before Jesus said the words in the well known Blasphemy Scripture Bible Verse.
The entire account can be found in Matthew 12:22-32. We see that Jesus healed a blind and mute man. The Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons using the power of demons. We of course know that this was not true. Jesus was not performing miracles by the power of demons or the devil, Jesus performed miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit (v 28)! Jesus tells them that Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is unforgivable. But what does this really mean? What is Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit? What is Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit?
By God’s grace, what I have come to understand from this scripture is that Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit means we are rejecting Jesus Christ, therefore rejecting God – because we are rejecting the person and the power of the Holy Spirit, and rejecting the entire ministry of Jesus Christ, i.e. God in human form. The Pharisees were trying to discredit Jesus and His ministry by attributing His miracle working power to demons.
When we become Christians, we accept Jesus (God) into our lives and we start afresh in Christ. Everything becomes new (2 Cor 5:17), and we begin a relationship with God, by God’s grace growing in God every day. We have the promise of eternal life. So we cannot commit the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit – we have done the exact opposite by becoming Christians, accepting Jesus into our lives, and beginning a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We have the assurance of salvation and eternal life.
This free gift of salvation and eternal life is available to every single person, regardless of what we’ve done or where we are coming from. So if you have accepted Jesus into your life and are by God’s grace seeking to please God in all you do… Please, Relax, Rejoice, & Praise God for the free gift of salvation we have through Jesus Christ! You have not and by God’s grace will not commit the sin of Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, because by definition, you have not rejected the Holy Spirit. By God’s grace, we will all live our lives to glorify God, to the shame of the enemy. Amen!
1 Corinthians 10:11, ESV Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come.
1 John 1:9, ESV If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Romans 6:14, ESV For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
John 10:27-28, ESV My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
Romans 8:1, ESV There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:2-3, ESV For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
Romans 10:13, ESV For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Romans 6:1-4, ESVWhat shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
1 Corinthians 15:57, NLT But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

So when would a person need to worry? If a person refuses to accept the gift of salvation, eternal life, and a relationship with God – the opposite of that is eternity away from God, also known as hell (God forbid!). So please, begin a relationship with God today, if you haven’t done so already. It’s not just about escaping hell… It is about living an abundant life, living life the way we were designed to live – experiencing the joy, peace, and beauty of a personal relationship with God. God wants to have a growing relationship with every one of us, and He will not just abandon us to figure things out on our own. He wants to help us every step of the way – our job is to trust and obey. It does not mean we will never sin again, but we will keep maturing spiritually, by God’s grace growing daily to become the men and women God wants us to become.
John 10:10, ESV The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Isaiah 41:13, NIV For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
John 3:17, ESV For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
Isaiah 43:18, NIV Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!
Jeremiah 29:11, NIV For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
