Do Not Blaspheme the Holy Spirit

(Matthew 12:31-37)

Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim

is almighty.
No one
can hinder what He does (Lk 1:37),
for the universe and creation were created by Him.
His creation appears when He says, “Let there be!”
and disappears when He says, “Be no more!” (Heb 1:2-4).
We understood the astonishing truth,
and we heard it from the invisible God (Jn 1:18)
with our ears (Jn 1:17).
He again appeared in visible form (2 Cor 4:4),
went up to heaven,
and from there poured the Holy Spirit on us who believe (Acts 2:32-33).
The Holy Spirit is the Advocate. He is our Lord (Jn 14:15-17).
People rejected Him because they could not see Him (Jn 1:45-46).
Though they heard His words, they doubted,
and though He came as the Son of Man, they betrayed
and killed Him (Jn 8:48).
He again
comes to us by the Holy Spirit, but if anyone (1 Jn 4:13)
blasphemes the Holy Spirit, this is the end (Heb 6:1-8),
for there is no atoning sacrifice or chance to repent (Heb 10:26-31).
God forgives everything before this,
yet there is no forgiveness in this age or the next
for blaspheming the Holy Spirit.

◎ Do not blaspheme the Holy Spirit, but obey by faith.
The Holy Spirit became the last grace and truth.

◎ Do not defy the Holy Spirit.
What the Holy Spirit does is lead us to resurrection.

◎ If we commit any sin found in the Law,
the cross atones for it all,
yet those who defy the Holy Spirit have no atoning sacrifice.

※ The Holy Spirit enters each of our hearts and dwells there.
He is not far away, but He dwells in us
and saves our spirits from the devil and sin.
