Bible commentary

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.

Discussion for Matthew 12

  • A disciple
    Emanuel; I think it might be best to just let you be with your ideas for now; seeing you really don't seem to want anything else. The doctrine that proves sound is that which will support our overcoming this present evil world; both now, and in the Day of God. Let me leave you with this recommendation only; that you study carefully 2 Peter, especially the first chapter; as it is the foundation.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    why dont you pray to God for discernment I actually study and meditate on the bible by reading these comments I see most of you just read it .THIS IS NOT MANS WORDS THIS IS GODS WORD. Reading is not good enough I medtitate DAILY. Study to shew thyself approved which your not dont know if your saved or a babe in christ. NOT A NOVICE BEING LIFTED UP WITH PRIDE!
  • A disciple
    Emanuel; I did read through carefully all that you wrote; and I'm saying that you are very mistaken! Jesus being here on earth or in heaven has nothing to do with whether men let Satan enter their hearts to blaspheme the Spirit. And the Lord said precisely without any room for confusion or misunderstanding: The Blasphemy of the Spirit HAS NO FORGIVENESS; not in this world, nor the next one coming!
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    If you actually read not skim my comments you would get my point. I said there is no way to blasphem and not be forgiven. You can blaspheme the Holy Ghost and be forgiven. The Pharisee we're not to be forgiven because Jesus was physically here on earth. That's the difference! Charamastic believe YOU CANT BE FORGIVEN TODAY WHICH IS WRONG. Does anyone TRULY LABOR IN THE WORD ANYMORE?
  • Jen
    2 Timothy 2:15.. There are different dispensations in the Bible, and the gospels are not written to Christians during the church age that we are now in. The blasphemy of the Holy Ghost was only possible to Jesus Christ when He was on the earth in bodily form; not the indwelling person of the Holy Ghost in born again believers today. It will also be when He comes on the earth again.
  • Steve morrow
    1 TIMOTHY 3:6 NOT A NOVICE LEST BEING LIFTED UP WITH PRIDE HE FALL INTO THE CONDEMNATION OF THE DEVIL PROVERBS 14:12 THERE IS A WAY WHICH SEEMETH RIGHT UNTO A MAN BUT THE END THEREOF ARE THE WAYS OF DEATH
