The Unpardonable Sin

by John and Ruth Greene

“Because of this I say to you, all sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit [YHWH’s Spirit] shall not be forgiven men. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Adam, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.” – Matthew 12:31-32, ISR98

fruitless-fig-tree1Speaking against YHWH’s Spirit is a big deal, especially since the sacrifice of Messiah and the coming of the Santified [Set Apart, Holy] Spirit among men. Are you set apart to Him? Do you accept the blessings or the curses? This is based on how you choose to deal with YHWH’s Will, combined with the admonition and power of the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 28; “Roots of Salvation“; “Holy Spirit 101“; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“)

“Either consider the tree beneficial, and its fruit beneficial, or consider the tree rotten,  and its fruit rotten.  For a tree is known by its fruit.” – Matthew 12:33, direct translation

Where a tree stands, there it is. Men and women can walk around as they please. They have free will unlike a tree. Yet, the Messiah compared men to trees that bear fruit. Yahshua [Jesus] said that you should bear fruit that bears the nature of the kind of tree that you are. When you stand firm for YHWH, you are like a tree that bears fine fruit.

blessing deut 28You may say that Deuteronomy 28 applies only to the nation of Israel. That is hardly the case. More importantly, the prophecy of Yahshua [Jesus] regarding the Holy Spirit applies to all people groups after His sacrifice. YHWH’s Word applies to the hearts of His people and to the wicked as well. Repentance from sin is necessary. Abstaining and avoiding sin is necessary so that the Messiah and the counsel of the Holy Spirit can sustain you, the sanctified ones, the ones that belong to Elohim. In these curses, ‘the curse of nations,’ you can clearly see the curses present and building right now in the modern nations of the world that refuse to operate by YHWH’s principles, as they apply oppression against their citizens and corruption of their system as the norm. Government must not be your god. There is only One, YHWH, the Elohim of Hosts. (“Understanding Sin“; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “Vanquishing Sin and Oppression“)

curses deut 28“Brood of adders! How are you able to speak what is good – being wicked? For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart. The good man brings forth what is good from the good treasures of his heart, and the wicked man brings forth what is wicked from the wicked treasure. And I say to you that for every idle word men speak, they shall give an account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you shall be declared righteous, and by your words you shall be declared unrighteous.” – Matthew 12:34-37, ISR98

lightIn Matthew 4, Satan’s control in the desert was disrupted. Yahshua [Jesus] overcame the temptation with His life sacrifice, overcoming all the weapons of Satan. (Rev 20:10) However, the earth is still under the power of the free will of man. Today, many Christians don’t believe in the reality of victory of the Messiah because of the illusion of prosperity that they see in the world, and the dishonesty of how that prosperity is usually created. Yet, disciples know that a house divided cannot stand. (Matthew 12:22-30) It’s okay for Satan’s kingdom to be divided, even as the darkness of the world seeks to swallow YHWH’s children of light. It’s all about humiliating YHWH’s people. Satan doesn’t care about anything else but compromise against the truth of the Heavenly Father. Satan seeks to scatter abroad and confuse the people of the earth. Disciples, through the power of YHWH, must tie up the strong man that seeks to destroy through the power and gifts that the Holy Spirit endows the disciple with. Otherwise, Satan will be happy to tie you up spiritually, rendering you ineffective and devoid of YHWH’s power. Perhaps, this speaks to the current position of so much of Christianity in the world today, which has a form of ‘godly’ or sanctified devotion, but proves false to that power in life. (1 Timothy 3:1-5; “YHWH’s Disciples: Victory in Spiritual Battle“; “Overcoming Satanic Attack“; “Are You Running Away from Messiah“)

“For the one that has spoken a word against the Son of Man, he is forgiven. Now the one that has spoken against the Sanctified [Holy] Spirit, he will not be forgiven, not in this age, nor in the one to come.” – Matthew 12:32. direction translation 

Bible-Vision-Holy-SpiritYahshua [Jesus], the son of Man was speaking to the crowd. He had spoken to the Pharisees and to those that opposed Him. They could be forgiven for their disagreement, their ignorance, even their lack of repentance for a time. (Matthew 11:21-24) Ultimately, every man and woman would face the need for living in the counsel and power of the Holy Spirit, especially when Yahshua [Jesus] left the earth. Speaking against the Holy Spirit puts a person in the position of rejecting YHWH entirely. Before the throne of YHWH, disciples need to be like children in humility, with the willingness to listen. (Matthew 11:25-26) The Holy Spirit isn’t a dream or simply a mindless power. He is the vital Counselor that lives in you, the guarantee of the Messiah, Yahshua [Jesus]. (John 14:16-17) A person that rejects YHWH’s Spirit does so at their own peril. If they pass away in death in this condition, it will not be forgiven. Your heart and attitudes matter. Repentance is gone when you spit in the face of the Savior and pass from the scene into death. The reward for the hardened unrepentant heart is ultimately the same for all men. (“YHWH’s Promise to His Elect“; “Seeking a New Spirit“; “Testing for YHWH’s Spirit“; “Is Your Forgiveness Real?“)

It is impossible to be neutral to the Messiah or the Holy Spirit. A neutral country like Switzerland may claim to exist in the world, but this isn’t possible in the spiritual world. Anyone that fails to actively seek and abide in Messiah rejects Him.

To receive the truth of YHWH’s Word means more than knowledge, especially the knowledge of man. (Matthew 11:27) His knowledge means His righteousness. Memorizing Bible verses won’t accomplish salvation either. That may require brain power, but allows for a heart disconnect. Bible principles rooted in your heart, through active relationship and  in union with the Holy Spirit, are essential to living in Messiah. (Matthew 11:28-29; “Secession of the Heart“; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“)

Let’s continue:

“Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from You. But He answering, said to them, “A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Yonah [Jonah]. For as Yonah [Jonah] was three days and three nights in the stomach of the great fish, so shall the Son of Adam be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Men of Ninewĕh [Ninevah] shall stand up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Yonah [Jonah], and look, a greater than Yonah [Jonah] is here. The sovereigness of the South shall rise up in the judgment with this generation and shall condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Shelomoh [Solomon], and look, a greater than Shelomoh [Solomon] is here.” – Matthew 12:38-42, ISR98

adulterous generationThe hearts of the scribes and Pharisees were not with Yahshua [Jesus], nor were they truly with the One they claimed to worship. If Yahshua [Jesus] had been full of pride or fear, He would have eagerly performed a miracle to boost His image in their sight. These men professed that they wanted to see a sign from the heavens for the Savior to prove his value. Yahshua [Jesus] knew better. His value did not rest with them. More importantly, miracles don’t create belief in a scheming wicked heart. Even miracles don’t necessarily preserve trust in YHWH. The nation of Israel under Moses is classic example. They saw great miracles, but fell away just the same. That pattern continues as people look for more signs with the pretense of preserving their faith. Searching continually for miracles could easily mislead you when a miracle is your main concern. (Matthew 24:24) Trust in YHWH doesn’t work that way. We have all the evidence we need and His Word on it. (“The Power Behind the New World Order“; “The Great Tribulation & End Time Rapture“; “News: Hyperinflation & False Teaching“; “Interfaith: Image of the Beast & the False Prophet“; “Financial Usury & Bible Truth: Lending, Giving & Borrowing“)

Jonah was one of the more cantankerous prophets. He didn’t want to lose face to the people that he was pronouncing judgment on. Does this sound like anyone you might know? Yet, Jonah knew of YHWH’s mercy firsthand. Nineveh was doomed, but the city repented, effectively condemning the wicked generation that Yahshua [Jesus] was talking about. Even the Queen of Sheba heard about Solomon’s wisdom, rebuking the worldly wisdom of the Pharisees. One greater than both Jonah and Solomon stood before them all. (“Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“; “Bible: Wisdom 101“)

“Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then it says, ‘I shall return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds it empty, swept, and decorated. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they enter and dwell there. And the last of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.” – Matthew 12:43-45, ISR98

unclean spiritMuch of Jewish society and the Jewish leadership were spiritually dry and arid, but also a place where unclean spirits could find solace and influence. They were little different from the nations, full of pride and the trappings of godly devotion. Cleaning up spiritually wasn’t enough to keep evil out of their hearts. Jewish traditions and ritual cleansing didn’t cleanse the heart. Being religious like the Pharisees isn’t enough today either. Traditions do not save. Today, the truth of the Messiah is needed to fill the space where uncleanness used to reside. (Ephesians 4:25-32) A wicked generation refuses to be filled with YHWH’s Spirit, rejecting the truth and counsel of the Holy Spirit. The idolatry of the antichrist or antimessiah (substitution for the Messiah and His Word) must be replaced with the love for the Heavenly Father and the new man in Messiah, born again through YHWH’s love. (“A Warning to Disciples“; “The Lie Changes Everything“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “Understanding Sin“)

“And while He was still talking to the crowds, see, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak with Him. And one said to Him, ‘See, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.’ But He answering, said to the one who spoke to Him, ‘Who is My mother and who are My brothers?’ And having stretched out His hand toward His taught ones, He said, ‘See My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the desire of My Father who is in the heavens is My brother and sister and mother.'” – Matthew 12:46-50, ISR98

Yahshua [Jesus] did not deny His love for his family. He was making a strong point about religious leaders that refused to listen to what He told them. Don’t forget another truth. You are a religious leader. Your Savior has made you answerable to teach the nations, anyone that will listen. In those days, the Master was honoring His spiritual family. The same truth applies today. Those that operate in YHWH’s Will are the family of Messiah on earth. Why are they His family? They believe what He says and obey that truth in a spirit of love. (James 4:8; “Real Love“; “Hardened Hearts: Strengthening the Brotherhood in Messiah“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
