Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit?

by Mark Horne

Copyright © 2002

(What follows is adapted from my forthcoming commentary on the Gospel of Mark)

In Mark’s Gospel we read: “And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, ‘He is possessed by Beelzebul,’ and ‘He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons’” (3.22).

Jesus replied in part, “Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin” (3.28, 29).

What did Jesus mean? If we say ascribe the work of the Spirit to the work of the Devil are we automatically beyond hope of forgiveness.

Looking at the background to this story in Mark’s gospel we see that John prophesied that Jesus would baptize with the Holy Spirit and at John’s baptism the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus. Jesus received his Pentecost at the Jordan so that he would be able to accomplish his mission and arrange a Pentecost in Jerusalem for his followers. Thus, we have two stages set forth for us in Mark’s Gospel: The ministry of the Son and then the ministry of the Spirit. Though the Spirit is unquestionably present in Jesus, it has not yet flowed out of Jesus to others, as it will on the day of Pentecost.

The Scribes from Jerusalem are rejecting the witness of Jesus, but that does not bring immediate judgment. Indeed, they go on rejecting Jesus during his years of ministry. What the scribes from Jerusalem reject in Galilee will be offered again in Jerusalem by disciples from Galilee (see Acts 2). The Holy Spirit will come upon the disciples and they will witness to the scribes. At that point, everything will still be forgivable. The great day of vengeance will still not fall on Israel if they repent. But if this second witness—the witness of the Spirit—is spoken against, then time will run out and the wrath of God will fall. Because Israel rejected the witness of the Spirit during the forty years of the early Church, they were eventually judged by God (c.f. Luke 19.41-45).

Luke clearly spells this out by recording Jesus’ exhortation to his disciples to bear witness for him when his time comes:

And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man shall confess him also before the angels of God; but he who denies Me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. And everyone who will speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him. And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not become anxious about how or what you should speak in your defense, or what you should say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say (Luke 12:9-12).

The blasphemy against the Holy Spirit here is the rejection of the Spirit-taught witnesses who confess the Son of Man before men. Bear in mind that in the Bible, a prosecution requires no less than two witness (Deut 19.15; Matt 18.16; John 8.17; 2 Cor 13.1; 1 Tim 5.19; Heb 10.28).

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, then, is not to be explained in terms of some difference in being or eternal status between the Son and the Holy Spirit so that curse words involving Jesus’ name are forgivable, but not expletives involving the Spirit. Rather, it refers to the historical framework of Jesus’ work in his own generation. The rejection of Jesus, as serious as that is, does not bring immediate condemnation. Forgiveness is still available. But after rejecting the second witness of the Spirit after Pentecost, time runs out for that generation of Israel. There is no forgiveness for blasphemy against the Spirit—the rejection of the second witness.

If I met someone who thought they had said something about the Spirit that damned him without hope, I would tell him to repent and believe. The general application of Jesus’ warning against blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is to not reject repeated warning: “A man who hardens his neck after much reproof will suddenly be broken and there is no remedy” (Proverbs 29:1).

God sends us different witnesses and warnings via the ministry of the Church both official and unofficial, as well as through providence. He is patient and slow to anger. But if we continue in sin we will be judged.

Jesus’ warning against blasphemy against the Holy Spirit means we should to repent the first time.

    Hi there,

    So I stumbled upon this after having some questions about “the condemnation of those who blaspheme the spirit”. Suffice to say, in my bible study in Mark, when I heard that Jesus WILL NOT forgive something, I grew a little anxious, haha, this is not what 19 years of hearing the gospel had told me. But you gave me a very straightforward answer to my question, and I thank you for that 🙂

    I spent a lot of time freaking out about this passage and this article helped me get beyond my fright and take a reasonable, logical look at God and His character and love. I just want to say to everyone who’s afraid about this passage, I KNOW how horrible it is to think you’ve dismantled your relationship with Christ. And I want you to know that you’re not alone in the struggle to make sense of things. I wanna be with you in spirit to help you explore the feelings this passage brings to light. God loves us and He tells us to seek Him with all our hearts, souls and minds. DO that. KEEP looking for him. Don’t be afraid to love and seek. In Christ. <3 Liz

    What kind of blasphemy? Like, with a REAL hate in one’s heart against both the Son and the Spirit?

    Is it unforgivable if Satan throw some thoughts abut cursing in your head that is accidentally pointed at the Spirit and the Son?

    Like, if you are thinking about the blasphemy and you suddenly cursed but you didnt meant it. Because you did not say it with hate. Is it unforgivable? I just never want to think like that. It just. . .that I dont want to be left and will never be forgiven. HOW or WHERE the temptations come from? HOW did they get in people’ minds?

    Afa Says:

    Also, Im really curious. I haven’t done it yet. Never done it yet. If I try to master something like control the fire with my mind.


    I remember that one man asked Peter to sell the power of the Holy Spirit to the old man. Peter told him that it is not for sale. So, the old man is angry with that news.

    That’s all I could remember why Christian people shouldn’t play with witchcraft of any kind or any kind of spell.

    Clint Walker Says:

    Jesus was confronting the Scribes who directly witnessed Jesus and His works done through the Holy Spirit which were the fulfillment of the Messianic prophecy , and they had that information. It is important to get this…Jesus was on earth with them, the Holy Spirit was in and on Jesus bringing the revelation of the Kingdom to these scribes in their spirit at that very time !! What greater unbelief can be shown by a human? With their own eye’s they saw Jesus ,the work’s of the Holy Spirit , and had scriptural accuracy for proof. The Jew’s rejected the Kingdom ways after experiencing first hand the ways and work’s of the Kingdom which Jesus brought to them. THIS SITUATION , with Jesus phisically with them, they had received ALL THE REVELATION AVAILABLE and then called Jesus and the works Satanic…they were hopeless and this was the unpardonable sin. “It shall not be forgiven in this age or the age to come to the Jew.” This was “pre-cross” not the Church age was it? And the age to come for the Jew is the Kingdom. All have the actual presence of Jesus available.In this Church age unbelief has it own reward and salvation and the belief on the finished work of cross has it’s reward. Read the Bible and pray for the mysteries to be made known to you…Rightousness,peace and joy are here for the believer in Jesus Christ ! Let the Kingdom of Heaven that Jesus preached enter you and desire to know the ways of the Kingdom!! This was the preaching of Jesus and His instruction to His disciples..”And as ye go preach , saying , The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.Heal the sick,cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out the devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”(MAT 10:7-8) Follow Jesus’s instruction as His disciples and the Power of the Kingdom will give you gifts like , the word of knowledge , which with unveil the mysteries to you. Amen

    you know, I’ve been going through the roughest patch since i became a born-again Christian. expletives of all sorts have been bursting from my mind cussing my God, my Savior and even the Holy Ghost. I couldn’t explain it. a few people i spoke to said these were the devices of the Devil and i almost quit and almost turned back to marijuana and alcohol believing i was condemned. And believe i didn’t mean to do what i did and its great to know that blaspheme against the Holy Spirit isn’t simply cussing it (unintentionally)but rather not believing at all in Christ’s ministry. It’s the greatest thing to know that I’m already forgiven for I love my Savior, the Holy Spirit. Hey, they love me! thanks.

    Yes the unparnable sin is hardcore doubt!I believe that a person can attribute the holy spirits miracles to satan amd be forgiven if they recieveve conviction for repentance def.repentance is to feal regret,sorow a change of ones mind the remedy is the opposite belief!Ive seen brothers that mocked tounges in the past but now have the holy ghost once they believed!!!Jesus is offering even repentance to the scribes and pharasses to repent ,chabge their minds accept corection how can satan cast out satan??HMMMMMask yourself that question you see it becomes unforgiven because the person chooses to remain blind and spiritually dicerned we have the mind of christ the lord speaks to us warns us but if we choose to be blind its our fault their no longer remains room for sacrifice we have many cahances to repent but the grace of god can run out so keep praying to god he changes our hear our minds to those who really thirst and hunger for him and truly repent god bless you all in jesus name remember paul mocked the holy spirit many times he was forgiven once he believed the blindness was taken off !Once we seek god whole hearted and we have conviction their is still hope he gives this to us not to send us to hell but to repent change our minds.The pharasses where condemmed because they didnt real bad about their sins they didmt choose correction from christ they chooose to believe all the way to the grave that the miracles theve seen where of satan!Unless god sent conviction in their hearts maybe some might have changed and would be able to be forgiven it really depends if god whants to convict them or allow them to be under a delusion to where salvation would be immpossible i hope this helps i know what im saying is the holy spirit revealing this to all god bless.

    I had a dream which i had trouble with its meaning and i felt like the dream possibly came from God, but in the dream of darkness around there was a man and a face i couldnt see i felt fear so when i was telling my mother about this i said i thought the man in my dream could have been the devil, now what i want to know is in this dream if that man i fear in my dream was God or the holy spirit, and not knowing this did i blaspemened him because i did not know who it was in the dream and so on? I am really afraid that i may have but if so out of ignorance will i be forgiven even though iam already saved?

    Roge Says:

    This article really helped me understand. It quotes from the Bible to show that if you are drawn to Christ and are convicted because of your sins, the Holy Spirit is working in you.


  14. 64
    Roge Says:

    Also if you are thinking, “I must have committed an unforgivable sin because God would not put me through this,” remember Romans 8:28: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” You could be going through this because someone you know is and you will eventually help them overcome it, or so that you may see the work of the Holy Spirit in your life. It certainly helped me accomplish the latter.

    I have a thought disorder and suffer from anxiety. I am being treated for the malady. I sometimes do not have control of what I think. I Know that Jesus is the Son of God and I Know that the Holy Spirit is my guide and comforter. I Know there is only one True God. I have what is called intrusive thoughts. My Heart Believe in the Trinity, I do not want to go to Hell for something I cannot control. Will you help me please? My Heart Know That I am Loved by The Father His son Jesus and The Holy Spirit. I am afraid. Please help me. Thank you.

    Dillon Says:

    After years of in and out of Love with Christ and the Trinity since child hood one day at 25 years old I yelled cus words about the Holy Spirit out loud out of anger! Then I was terrified for years and I was a mad man in the word and these websites! I was full of horror I felt sooo sorry for myself! Then one night while in bed I just broke down and with my faith in Jesus I admitted that I blasphemed to God about the Holy Spirit! About 10 mins later in my back yard while having a smoke the Spirit of God came upon me from the Kingdom! I know it was GOD cuz I was terrified like a human being seeing his Creator! Then when I went inside my body went into a siezure untill my spine felt like it was going to snap! Then I dry heaved almost to my knees! This whole quake lasted about 2 hrs I couldent stop shaking out of control! Since then no matter how decieved I am the Spirtual Realm is open to me no matter what! So at least I know I still have Faith in Jesus! And I know for sure there is an ultimate Creator! Hold on to the Word! Keep the commands, Be terrified to die in sin, Remember who you have Faith in Jesus, And if you are ultimately hopeless which I feel like sometimes like I have no Jesus in me REMEMBER GOD SAYS HE NOT UNJUST TO REMEMBER WHAT WE DO THAT IS GOOD IN HIS NAME, So we should be like Soldiers for the Truth and never give in, So if GOD is JUST then we still have HOPE, We might be LOST but lets ask ourselvs why are we sooooooo horrified to lose the TRINITY? The Gate that seems like the one we should head for is the one! And you will know that if you truly through faith in Jesus REPENT OR ADMIT everything youve done even the unpardonable sin to GOD! Then you will know what im talkin about! GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS!

    Dillon Says:

    I did blaspheme the Holy Spirit out loud one time out of anger! And I feel truly empty and I feel like a looser! But I remember my love for Christ and His Spirit! I have known them! Now I find myself constantly in the Word and The Spirit of God comes to me all the time! Even though I said curse words to the Spirit out loud before! So I am still not sure what all this means for myself? But I do find myself horrified from time to time! All I know is the Bible has thus taught me to turn and Repent from all sin and to be even more terrified to return to it! And I have tested the Word against the Spirits that come to me and they rang True! So I guess God still has a plan for me as well Amen!

    Tarver, David Says:

    Now im 31 but when I was about 23 I cursed the Holy Spirit really bad. I just got out of prison not too long ago. I was locked up for 5 years and 7 months and everyday that I was locked up I felt like crap. I even had dreams that I was going to hell and they was so real and terrifying. I felt like crying my eyes out. Most days I would drag around feeling scared and depressed. I would read the same scripture over and over again and would feel depressed over and over again. I felt like I wanted to die. I am still scared today. Here’s how it happened. I read the scripture before about the blasphemy when I used to study the bible with the Jehovah’s Witnessess. I was convicted about the blasphemy and was scared to do it. But 3 or 4 years later I eventually forgot mostly what I learned about that blasphemy. Then I was on drugs really hard. So one day I was hung over really bad and a question popped up in my mind. It said why shouldn’t I blaspheme the holy spirit and I started to agree with the question in my mind. So I said to myself, Why shouldn’t I blaspheme the the holy spirit? At first I didn’t want to do it and it seemed distant from me. But the more I kept on thinking about it and it just came out purposely. I really didn’t know exactly what blasphemy was until I reflected on what people around me use to say. They would say the GD word all the time. So I figured that if they said the D word to blaspheme, I figured the other words was just as bad. So I started to blaspheme the spirit and then the Holy Spirit. While I was doing it I felt out of place and I ceased to do it any more. Like I said earier I forgot the consequence for the sin. Then maybe 2-3 minutes later I remembered that it will not be forgiven in this age or the age to come. Then I started to get really worried and scared. I was worried the whole night through. A couple of years passed by. I got into trouble with the law. I was arrested with serious charges. Maybe a month or two into my prison sentence, my mom sent me a King James Bible to the jail. So I read the Bible all day or as much as I could because I never read the whole Bible before.Until one day I read the book of Matthew 12th chapter. I read the part where blaspheming the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. I broke down and cried in my jail cell for hours because I always wanted to be on good terms with the Lord always but the only place I ended up was bad terms plus with my poverty and bad luck. I felt really bad from that moment on. Everyday I felt like killing myself and I just can’t get over it at all. I looked up the word blasphemy a couple of years before my conviction and it said to profane things sacred or pertaining to God. So I felt really bad. He will forgive any sin and blasphemy but not the blasphemy against the spirit. Now I have really bad thoughts about suicide that I can’t ignore. Suicide might send me to hell but not the gut feeling that I have about that blaspheme though that I did. I cry most of the time and I wish I can disapear. I just have no hope left and I am fading away slowly. Pray for me anybody because I wish i can take all of this back but I’m too late. Like lately I feel like I want to take a gun and just end it all so pray for me please.

    Daniel Mayo Says:

    For those that are confused about mocking the holy ghost, I think I finally figured it out. What you should not do is backslide from doing the right thing purposely, that will leave a permanent backslid-en heart. It’s the refusal to acknowledge god’s power in Christ, they also turn their backs as I said before. I know that the whole thing is complicated, but it’s also personal to God in the highest.

    Rev. Grover H. Hunter Says:

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, i write this in Hope to help those who are seeking Truth…..now first of all i would like to state a person MUST know what he/she is doing, and willfully do it, to commit Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost…you see when Jesus walked among us they who said he cast out devils by the prince of devils, Knew in there heart that no man had ever done the works Jesus did , and so they willfully said those things knowing at the least that GOD was with him, even if he we’re not GOD they knew in there hearts GOD was with him….we know he was GOD in the flesh, but anyway my point is they spoke out saying he was of the devil….which is an insult to GOD (Holy Spirit) which is the only way to receive salvation for he him self is our salvation. for the Holy Spirit of GOD is the seal by which yea are sealed unto the day of redemption Ephesians 4:30….so dear friend’s unless GOD has shown you his Truth and you resist it until GOD no longer strives to lead you into following his Truth OR you know what your doing and yet speak evil against the Holy Ghost. STOP>>>>worrying you have committed this sin because if you ever committed this sin your conscious would be seared and you would not be worried OR even care you committed it, because there would be no conviction from the Holy Ghost that your doing OR have done wrong. so feel welcome to read what i wrote in 2009 in this same forum OR feel free to E-Mail me at groverhunter1966@yahoo.com May God Bless your insight in his mighty Word Love your Brother in Christ Jesus Amen.

    Thomas Amsinger Says:

    I have delved too deeply into the Bible and discovered secret information that some Orthodox
    Jewish rabbis are aware of and they don’t preach about it. The words are all there in the
    Bible. This has led me to accept a false impression of myself and a declaration in prayer
    and among people concerning my own self-identity that assumed too close a role in Biblical
    matters. All of these actions were caused by the devil’s deceptions and lying wonders that
    were very convincing to myself only. I shared my information with the Saudi Embassy in
    Washington and they took note, accepted two videos I produced and read my writings that I
    shared. They are now better prepared for dealing with Revelation Chapter 11 and the coming
    Second Moshiach and another, likely the reincarnation of John the Baptist. I assume the Saudis
    will be present for the final outcome of Rev.Ch. 11 and while there is lifting up into the air
    for two individuals, likely the Saudis will be heading to behind the Dome of the Rock and
    entering their helicopters for a flight out of the country to Jordan, while there will be
    a terrible earthquake that shall likely destroy Dome of the Rock to allow for the building of a
    Third Temple upon the same site. My role in this was to provide information in preparation
    for the coming big event, likely near Christmas in December, when clouds occur in daylight hours
    in Jerusalem. However, my role in this appears to have gone too far in relation to Bible prophecy
    and I remain deeply concerned about the everlasting sin declaration being applied to me. I have
    written a confessional of lifetime sin and have made an appeal for an alternative punishment that
    may allow my spirit and soul to be reborn into the Universe to come and given a new opportunity to
    live according to the high standards of righteousness that Jesus made an example for. His self-sacrificing lifestyle is our example to follow, even unto our own death. My own name contains the
    “I Am” as my middle initial and beginning of my last name, so it appears as though I was predestined
    for the role in which I served. While certain things are destined for the future, it is the
    punishment that I seek to have limited to an erase of my memory and be reborn and led to live
    a righteous life with no devil to tempt me or anyone else into sin. All things are known to our
    Creator. I cannot reveal anymore information, but know that the Moshiach is an extremely
    intelligent Prophet, who is in contact with our Creator through dreams.

    God is love. I believe in Jesus Christ and that he will make sure we understand before we are damned to hell. I have also sinned and wondered if I have become wicked in the sight of the Almighty Lord Jesus Christ. I feel so much love for what is good and I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for placing that in my heart. To trust is to believe without knowing. If your looking for answers
    read the bible.

    Thomas Amsinger Says:

    Blaspheme of the Holy Spirit is believing you are that person for
    which secret words have been coded into the Scripture that few people ever understand,
    except for a few elite Jewish and Islamic scholars. The so called “Christians” have
    been misled by the “Apostle” Paul and his epistles. Please Google Apostle Paul false
    prophet and do your own research on this subject. Only the four Gospels and parts of
    Revelation are to be studied today as was what was recommended by Orthodox Jewish
    people many centuries ago.

    Rev. Grover H. Hunter Says:

    Greetings, I write this to all who question what blasphemy again’st the Holy Ghost is or claim this sin can’t be committed today, that only those in Christ time upon the earth could committ that sin. Which is a total lie again’st the word of God. This sin CAN be committed today !!! But for it to be committed a person would most diffently know what they we’re doing by uttering curse words or evil intent toward the Holy Ghost. You see God looks at the intent of a persons heart, and knows weather a word spoken is with true intent or what ever the case may be. my point is yes this sin can be committed today. But if it is the person who has committed it will have NO remorse or care that they have because the very instant they committ that sin they can not be saved. And that means that all light from Gods word will be cut off from them and without that light they can never be led to repentance, and without repentance a person can’t be saved. If anyone would like help feel free to contact me anytime. BUT if u only contact me to argue i will NOT return an E-Mail to you !!!……Love Rev.G.H.Hunter (groverhunter7@yahoo.com

    Derrick Vernon Says:

    i believe that blasphemy the holy spirit isn’t rejecting Christ and choosing to live their life. I think it has to do with denying the holy spirit when it deals with you and you know its the holy spirit convicting with you but you still deny him. Saying to yourself its not the Holy spirit. the bible says that the spirit of god draws us to him. If we deny that then i believe we are in a reprobate mind set.
    so i believe its denying even when you know its the holy ghost convicting you.
    remember this is my opinion,we don’t build a whole doctrine off of a opinion.

    only god fully understand this scripture and when we make heaven we can ask him.

    many years ago i had just given my life to jesus and was in a great deal of emotional pain and turmoil because my mother had been very verbally abusive to me and i came home and was looking for comfort in the bible-i instead found those words and in my pain cried out to god that this holy spirit as a comfort was a lie because i felt no comfort and was afraid he was rejecting me like my mother had-i was so upset when i told him this, but immediately told him i was sorry for saying such things and talked to him about how i was feeling, that i was just really confused…i never thought of the holy spirit being demonic or that jesus was demonic-nothing like that…i had not always understood people falling out under the spirit and never had it happen but even in my lack of understanding it was not because i thought jesus or god or the spirit was demonic or anything….what has worried me is that a few years after that i had forgotten it, assuming i was
    forgiven because i repented straight away and did not revisits i, but other things in my life were causing me continued pain and hurt…i became so overwhelmed by it and thought maybe god had abandoned me, i still was going to church and clinging to what faith i could, was even playing music for ministry and yet because of the depression and pain i got really sick and stayed so for many years, to the point of being bedridden…i had committed some other sins during this time but a year ago began to make my way back to god and it was like being a lost prodigal child…at first it all seemed very exciting…i prayed and asked jesus to heal me and in a week was off over many medications and out of bed and able to walk without help i was elated and was doing my everything to really have him back in my life-i felt it was his conviction of my sins which led me to repent of them fully and i truly did end them all as i was being shown them…but one day i came
    across a scripture from hebrews talking about sinning after knowing jesus and suddenly felt all this condemnation flooding my very being….suddenly all my sins were right back on me including the words i spoke that day about the holy spirit being a lie as a comfort because i hurt so bad…it seemed someone was yelling in my chest that all these were held against me….i was now more confused and terrified because why would i feel the holy spirit convict me of sin and lead me to repent and also to be healed the way i was if i was unforgiven, yet the fears and terror of this have haunted me to this day…try as i might and i have my husband and some friends who are saved tell me i did not commit the sin i thought i had and that because i had repented and had been so seeking after him , that i am allowing the enemy to accuse me….it is awful because i have no lasting peace in this…beyond healing and then the conviction of sins and a few visions and
    what what i thought was jesus telling i was forgiven but to have faith in him, [my dad even called me up when this first happened and told me that the spirit had come to him in great power and told him to let me know i was forgiven and saved by his grace-he did not know i was going through this at the time and felt an urgent need to call me with this message] so why can i not get inner confirmation in this and why am i still so afraid….i need help and am not sure what to do….suzanne

    In answer to your post:
    “why would i feel the holy spirit convict me of sin and lead me to repent and also to be healed the way i was if i was unforgiven”
    [my dad even called me up when this first happened and told me that the spirit had come to him in great power and told him to let me know i was forgiven and saved by his grace-he did not know i was going through this at the time and felt an urgent need to call me with this message]

    I encourage you: please, hold on to your faith. Believe your Dad. What you said can be forgiven.
    Why would the Holy Spirit convict you of sin? Because He wants you to repent and He wants you back! In other words, He hasn’t left you. A real blasphemer would not be interested to repent.

    Also I am encouraged by your healing. This means that God has not given up on your case. Not only that, if someone is healed, their sins are also forgiven.
