Jesus

It Doesn’t Say “Unforgivable Sin.”

So, one day I’m reading the verse about the “unforgivable sin” to understand exactly what this sin is. I mean, hey, I don’t want to commit the “unforgivable sin,” so I should really understand what it is. Here is the verse:

Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” ~ Jesus Christ, Matthew 12:32.

I’ve heard so many teachings explaining this as the “unforgivable sin,” yet none of them make any sense to me. Then, finally, God turned the light on for me– as he always does when one diligently studies his word. No where in this passage does it say that speaking against the Holy Spirit is unforgivable! Rather, it says that it “will not be forgiven.” There is a huge difference. Jesus will not refuse to forgive this sin. However, people who commit this sin will not go to Jesus for forgiveness because they will see Jesus as evil. If you refuse to go to Jesus, your sin will not be forgiven, period.

To understand the context of the verse, I went back and read the verses immediately prior:

Then they brought him [Jesus] a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” ~ Matthew 12:22-24

This is crucial! The Pharisees accuse Jesus of being evil! They will not accept him as Messiah because they believe he is evil. If you do not accept Jesus Christ as Messiah, you will not be forgiven your sins.

The template you have in your mind by which you judge good and evil MUST match the characteristics of the Messiah, or you will reject him, and burn in hell. Eureka!!! Now it becomes clear why Satan is so busy in this world trying to convince us that good is evil, and evil is good. It is so you will not recognize Jesus when you meet him. This stands on its head the idea that all it takes for salvation is some teary-eyed, emotion-driven altar call at which you “accept” Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We ask people to accept Jesus, but we don’t even tell people who he is. We’re deceiving them. We’re setting people up for failure– and its eternal failure, and the blood will be on our hands.

The Jewish people rejected Jesus at his first coming because they did not recognize him. They expected a conquering warrior, but they got a humble guy on a donkey instead. They were taught that he is the Lion, so when they saw the Lamb, they did not recognize him. Boom. That’s all it took. So, no matter how many times a person may have “accepted” the Messiah at an altar call in their synagogue, it didn’t matter. You have to know him when you see him, and they didn’t. That’s the crucial point!

Fast forward 2,000 years. The church is deceiving people that Jesus is this ever-gentle, grandmotherly, humble Messiah. So, people “accept” Jesus as this ever-gentle, grandmotherly, humble Messiah, and that is the description of him they have in their minds, and which they will use to identify him. However, the Bible knows nothing of Jesus’ 2nd coming as a love fest. When Jesus comes back, he is coming to kick ass, and most of the church will not recognize him. We are expecting the Lamb, but we will get the Lion. What happened to most of the Jewish people in the 1st coming of the Messiah will happen to the most of the church in the 2nd coming.

Maybe you think you won’t need to recognize Jesus when he returns because you will already have been raptured out. You are not getting off the hook by playing the rapture card. You will not be raptured if you do not recognize the true Jesus. No one is absolved of their responsibility to know Jesus. That’s why full disclosure by us who evangelize is crucial! Remember, Jesus himself said:

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven [so much for cheap, instant, responsibility-free salvation], but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven [if your activism is concentrated toward opposing the will of the Father on every earthly topic – morality, evolution, Israel, etc. – then how in the world can you say you have placed your faith in Jesus???].

Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'” ~ Matthew 7:21-23

Now getting back to the sweet Jesus we sell to our converts. Let’s see what this ever-gentle, grandmotherly, humble lamb of a Messiah will be up to when he returns, shall we?

I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it…Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem… [Jesus is fighting against those nations gathered against his people, Israel. Most churches today do not even recognize Israel as God’s people, so how in the world will they accept this Messiah when they see him?] ~ Zechariah 14:2-3

Out of his mouth [Jesus’ mouth] comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations [gentle lamb?]. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty [grandmotherly?]. ~ Revelation 19:15

They were trampled in the winepress outside the city [this is Jesus physically crushing the enemies of God, does this sound like the gentle lamb we sell to the people we evangelize?], and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia. ~ Revelation 14:20

Once again, it is now clear why Satan is working so hard to convince us that good is evil and evil is good. Here are some examples:

  1. Arab Muslims have more freedom and a higher standard of living in Israel [a Jewish nation] than in any Arab nation on earth, yet Satan is busy convincing us that Israel is a racist nation.
  2. Every nation mentioned in the Bible by name that Jesus destroys at his 2nd coming is a Muslim nation today, yet Satan is busy convincing us that resisting Islam is Islamophobia.
  3. Jesus clearly tells us in Matthew 19 that God’s plan for marriage is one man and one woman– no other combination. Period.

“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female [not male and male, or female and female],’ and said, ‘For this reason a man [singular] will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife [wife, singular, not “wives”], and the two [not three, not five, nothing but two] will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” ~ Matthew 19:4-6

Yet, Satan is busy convincing us that opposing gay marriage is homophobic and evil.

We tell our converts to accept Jesus, but we don’t tell them how to recognize him when they meet him, in this life or the next.

Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” ~ Jesus Christ, Matthew 12:32.

Therefore, when our converts meet Jesus (whether in this life or the next), they will apply their worldly morality to him and identify him as a racist, Islamophobic, homophobic hate-monger, and reject him, and burn in hell. And the blood will be on our hands. The Bible is always proven true.

When I say to a wicked man, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. ~ Ezekiel 3:18-19

    I am of the belief the the seven trumpets talked about in the book of revelation has already began to sound. In fact i am of the belief that six have already sounded but no one seems to believe what i have to say. This leads me to believe that at his second coming, may will not recognize him as you say. Can you comment on the seven trumpets in one of your future posts.

    God bless
