Bible Commentary for Matthew 12:31

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 12:31


12:31 The blasphemy against the Spirit - How much stir has been made about this? How many sermons, yea, volumes, have been written concerning it? And yet there is nothing plainer in all the Bible. It is neither more nor less than the ascribing those miracles to the power of the devil, which Christ wrought by the power of the Holy Ghost. #Mark 3:28|; Luke 12:10.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 12:31


Mt 12:31 The blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven. Compare Mr 3:28 Lu 12:10. Much discussion has arisen concerning the nature of sin against the Holy Spirit, and nothing is plainer. Mr 3:30 explains it. It was ascribing Christ's works to demoniac influence. These works were wrought by the power of the Spirit.

  • Lisa on Matthew 12:31
    my question is about divorce and remarriage. My husband left after 23 years of marriage. Shortly after I was remarried to someone who said he was a Christian but isn't. I broke up with him 3 times because of it, but kept going back to him because I felt so bad. Now I'm unequally yoked and feel as though I've co.mitted a sin that I can't be forgiven of. My life is miserable, full of anxiety and fear. Its causing a lot of problems to the point I want out of this marriage. Please help.
  • Mishael on 1 Corinthians chapter 7 - in Reply on Matthew 12:31
    You need to speak to your Pastor, your pastors wife; or a Christian counsellor if you seek privacy.

    I've been divorced 36 years. Born again 35 years. I have no desire to be married again. Divorce seriously harms children emotionally; which should be held uppermost in our Mind; before diving into another marriage. I speak from experience.

    Scripture says do not be unequally yoked with an unbeliever. A pony and a Clydesdale horse cannot pull a wagon out of the barn. Did your husband know you are a Christian? Did he allow you to go to church?

    This why you would do well to speak to your pastor/ Counselor; before telling kids anything.

    I pray the Lord would show you what to do.

    Read 1 Corinthians chapter 7
  • Jason barnett on Matthew 12:31
    wesley is also correct because a man seeing the powerful works at hand would have to take a stand with christ or against christ. the pharisees chose against and took stand to slander christ but the work was of his father. Christ: for it is not i who speak but my father who has spoken though me. in no scholar but this seems pretty clear to me
