Nothing puts more fear into the heart of someone who is seeking God than the thought that they may have blasphemed the Holy Spirit and cannot be forgiven.
Matthew 12:31 says,” Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or in the age to come.
God’s enemy is well aware of this and he is ever quick to accuse those seeking to find forgiveness for their sins. Peter denied the Lord three times, yet he was forgiven when he cried to God. I am sure he didn’t feel like he would be.
Satan is relentless in his harassment. He will accuse over and over, for as long as we will accept the accusations. God knows when you have blasphemed His Holy Spirit, and only then will He cut off the man or woman he has lovingly created. The fact is if you still care about the Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit… if you still care, and desire forgiveness for your sins, you haven’t committed the unforgivable sin.
There is no certain verse you can go to that proves you have not committed this sin. It is the fact that you care, and are sorry for the things you have said and done.
When you come to the Father with an honest heart and repent of the things you have done, He will forgive you. When you have committed the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, you will not be one who comes to the Father… for anything. You will have no desire to come to God for forgiveness. In fact it will be something that repels you.
Because the enemy is the accuser of the brethren, he accuses and does his best to keep people from finding out how great the Father’s forgiveness is. He will try to tell you that you have blasphemed the Holy Spirit when you have not.
You are here because you care! You are a candidate for God’s forgiveness! Here is a simple prayer for you to pray. Pray it out loud.
Father I am so sorry for the things I have said and done against you and against others. I have been wrong and I have wandered far away from Your ways. Today I am coming home. I ask you Father to forgive me. I accept the sacrifice your Son Jesus Christ made for me when He died for my sins on the cross. I believe He is resurrected and sits at Your right hand. I now invite Him to live in my heart and I surrender my life to You. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to you. In the precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen
If you have sincerely prayed this prayer, rejoice! The angels in heaven are! You have come home, and I am sure you can now tell how great the Father’s love is for YOU.
