Blaspheming Holy Spirit Authority
Blaspheming Holy Spirit authority is something many do not understand. What is blaspheming the Holy Spirit? Authority is given to believers by Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
Jesus always prepares His followers for the future. In preparing to teach or preach about Jesus, a follower needs to prepare with worship, study and prayer, but, as in Luke 12:12, in times of persecution, the Holy Spirit will teach a Believer what to say in that very hour. Luke 12 begins with Jesus talking to His followers, saying a lot of the same things He said during the Sermon On The Mount.
Jesus tells us to beware what we say in public and in private because the adversary has eyes and ears everywhere, waiting to pounce on a Believer at any time, constantly provoking the Believer. The leaven of the Pharisees is ego, pride, hypocrisy; putting a person’s desires before God’s will.
The spirit behind the Pharisees never left this earth, it is the same spirit behind the seed of the serpent in Genesis 3:15. Jesus tells us to not be afraid of this spirit because it may be able to kill your body through its seed, which is wicked people, but only God has the power to allow a person to enter Heaven. Jesus never sends a person to hell, a person chooses to go to hell by their own will.
This spirit behind the seed of the serpent has been provoking God’s people for a long time. Even when David fought Goliath, Goliath was provoking the Israelites. Every day Goliath would taunt them, waiting for a true Believer to emerge out of the crowd, a Believer who would stand up for God in the face of adversity.
The goal of the serpent then was to kill the Promised Seed of God that was to come through a woman but he failed. Jesus is the Promised Seed of God who defeated the serpent at the cross, not for God’s sake, but for our sake. So, the serpent’s goal now is to kill all Believers, and he does not fight fair. The serpent uses any means of deception possible in an attempt to kill a person’s faith in Jesus.
Apostasy, which is denying Jesus as a result of persecution, is the road many people have traveled and will travel. Believing Jesus is God and going to church can still be denying Jesus before people. Denying Jesus is not simply saying Jesus is not God, denying Jesus is denying who He is, not out of ignorance, but out of a person’s own will. Saying the world has advanced past what God has said, bringing God “up to date” with the world’s current belief system is denying Jesus and is wicked.
Jude talked about apostasy happening in the Church. I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God’s marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives. The condemnation of such people was recorded long ago, for they have denied our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. ( Jude 1:4 NLT)
Jesus also talks about blaspheming the Holy Spirit. Over time, many people have interpreted this to mean many different messages. Some say it is saying Jesus has an evil spirit, that Jesus comes from the devil. If you are blaspheming the Holy Spirit, you may be doing this.
Some religions teach to not speak against us People of the Book, but, just like when the scribes spoke against Jesus in Mark 3:22-30, it was not their speaking against the human person of Jesus that was blaspheming the Holy Spirit, it is denying Jesus is the Son of God that is blaspheming the Holy Spirit, saying Jesus is something He is not is blaspheming the Holy Spirit.
