Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 12:31-32(KJV); 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. And 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
Often times, our theme scripture has been quoted as the ‘unforgivable sin’. This has been the basis of a number of contradictory doctrines; it is the reason why some Christians have lived in constant condemnation and why some are convinced that they are damned and destined for hell.
The ultimate question we should be asking is, ‘Can a Born Again Christian blaspheme the Holy Spirit?’
The answer is ‘no.’
A person born of the Spirit is by nature incorruptible and as such cannot blaspheme the very Spirit that begat him(1 Peter 1:23).
When Jesus spoke of this unforgivable sin, He was making reference to non-believers. Once you receive Christ in your spirit, it is impossible for you to sin against the Holy Spirit.
He that is born of God cannot sin(1 John 3:9). It is not in your nature to blaspheme the Holy Spirit.
Live life in this understanding, free of any condemnation.
Glory to God!

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this Word. Thank you because there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. I commune with the Holy Spirit in this understanding and liberty, safe in the knowledge that I am accepted and loved. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
