    What does blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost mean in the bible?
  • M - in Reply on Luke 12:10
    It seems to mean the one unforgivable sin is not having the Holy Spirit, because those without the Holy Spirit people don't have their debts paid by the blood of the Lamb. So rejecting God and Jesus's sacrifice in their place is unforgivable because forgiveness is through the blood.

    Once someone accepts Jesus's sacrifice in their place, and puts their faith in Him, that condition no longer exists, and all can be forgiven.

    Rebecca, may the Spirit grace you with his understanding.

    Most things in God's word have to be discerned by applying multiple scriptures and all applied against:

    1 John 2:27 But the anointing (Holy Ghost in you) which ye have received (by grace) of him (Holy Ghost) abideth in you, and you NEED NOT THAT ANY MAN TEACH YOU; but as the same anointing (the Holy Ghost) teacheth you ALL things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it (the Holy Ghost) hath taught you, ye shall abide (become one) in him (the Holy Ghost).

    Ephesians 4:21 If so be that ye have HEARD him (the Holy Ghost), and have been taught by him (the Holy Ghost), as the truth is in Jesus (THE WORD OF GOD).

    Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by HEARING, and HEARING by the WORD OF GOD (studying, meditating).

    The scriptures were written by men under the influence of the Holy Ghost.

    Revelation 19:10 .... for the testimony (words) of Jesus (THE WORD) is the spirit of prophecy.

    2 Peter 1:21 For prophecy came.....as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

    Now to your question, what does it mean to blaspheme the Holy Ghost. Since the WORD (truth) was written by the Holy Ghost, you blaspheme when you call his WORD a lie. Example:

    1 Timothy 2:3-4 For this is GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE in the sight of God our Saviour; who WILL HAVE all men to be saved, and come to the KNOWLEDGE of the truth.

    Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come, thy WILL BE DONE in earth, as it (HIS WILL) is in heaven.

    1 Timothy 4:10-11 .....who is the SAVIOUR OF ALL MEN, specially those that BELIEVE.

    (vs) 11 These things COMMAND AND TEACH.

    Psalm 22:27 ALL the ends of the world shall REMEMBER and TURN unto the LORD: and ALL KINDREDS OF THE NATIONS SHALL WORSHIP BEFORE THEE.

    1 Corinthians 15:28 And when ALL THINGS shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him (Father) that put ALL THINGS under him (Son) that GOD MAY BE ALL IN ALL.

    WE all blaspheme on our journey to TRUTH just REPENT and TURN to the new found TRUTH.

    Rebecca this is one of the most misunderstood scriptures in Gods Word, but think about an action against Gods Word an individual cannot be forgiven of, the answer is just as you can be born again of the True God , an individual can be born again of the devil that cannot be reversed an example Jesus Christ when speaking to in John 8:42-44 hes speaking to religious leaders and carefully look at what he says, your father the devil, that an incredible statement God showed him where they were coming from. Which is why he said you will die in your sin. Keep something in mind were talking about an action unforgivable.

    Very simply, it means that the Words of God spoken or the Work of God done in the Power of the Holy Spirit, is being attributed to Satan. This is also what the Jewish leaders were accusing Jesus of: Jesus' claim to be God's Son & His position at God's right Hand ( Matthew 26:63-65). Rather, they were the ones who blasphemed by claiming that Jesus did His miracles under Satanic power ( Matthew 12:22-32).

    Therefore, this should remind us to be careful when judging another's words or work in the Lord's Name - we might just find ourselves speaking against the Lord & the Truth, even if done ignorantly.
