Matt. 12:31-32 .. Mark 3:28-29 .. Luke 12:10
Text: Mark 3:28-29 teaches that ... .he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
An Elect Child of God has never been in danger of such, even from the Eternal Covenant, through Legal Justification, Vital New-Birth Regeneration, and Final Glorification - Jew or Gentile.
If such Elect were in danger, then why does not the Scriptures warn The Elect against such blasphemy against The Holy Ghost? Not one verse is to be found warning The Elect against such. If there were such eternal danger, then The Scriptures, being a “thoroughly furnisher” (2nd Tim. 3:17), fails to warn The Elect not to commit such specific blasphemy.
Satan and his demon-angels, embracing all non-elect, can and do blaspheme The Holy Ghost. Define “Blasphemy” - The act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God; The Act of claiming the attributes of deity, Irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable -Webster.
Impious or profane speaking of God, or of sacred persons or things; The Act of claiming the attributes of God; In early Judaism, any irreverent act toward God, as cursing his name, later, the saying of the ineffable name of God; Any irreverent act or utterance; profanity - Funk and Wagnall
Strong’s #987 & #988 -greek--to vilify; to speak impiously; defame, rail on, revile or speak evil...
To blaspheme The Holy Ghost is to deny the very existence, divinity, sanctity, manifestation of, purpose, function and utility of The Holy Spirit, in both it's functions - 1. Creative, 2. Cultivative ...
Naturally speaking you cannot stand before a mirror and deny your existence. Spiritually speaking, you are endued with The Holy Spirit and cannot deny such. The Spirit cannot deny itself. The Elect that is Born-again of The Spirit cannot deny such ...
However, The Devil nor any of his followers, possess The Holy Spirit, therefore they can and do blaspheme such. See.- Acts 2:13 - “Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine’ The truth was they were filled with The Holy Ghost (V. 4), but these “Others” were blaspheming (denying) The Holy Spirit, by saying they were drunk on wine. Also, one of the strongest displays of “Blaspheming The H. G.” is to claim deity for yourself above God - See: Isaiah 14: 12-14
- Reference Lucifer; He claimed to exalt himself above God, even to be like the most High.
Finally, notice the condition of the wicked-dead in - John 8:43-47 - - “...Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it.. .ye are in very bad condition, can and do blaspheme The Holy Ghost...
The Born-again Elect, cannot sin from the heart - Holy Spirit -1st John 3:9. I admit the Pharisee did not believe that Jesus was The Christ, but that sin was forgivable -Matt 12:31. I also agree that the word “World” in - Matt. 12:32 is the Greek - Aion meaning “Age or Dispensation World.” However, the Pharisee Jew, and even the Gentile, both which constitutes most of The Elect (there were Elect Samaritans also), never blasphemed The Holy Ghost, or else the Bible would have warned such Elect!
