Blaspheming is a sin that is looked upon lightly anymore. There are different types of blasphemy: (1) Using the Lord’s Name in vain, (2) severe curse words, and (3) light vulgar words. You might think I’m crazy, but I can remember being brought up to NEVER use the word “God” in a sentence unless I was speaking of Him specifically. For example, to say “Oh my G**” was not allowed in my parents’ home. Now, people use God’s name flippantly. We hear curse words all around us now; vulgarity is heard in the most innocent of places, like restaurants, stores, etc. It didn’t use to be that way.

BLASPHE’ME, v.t. [Gr. The first syllable is the same as in blame, blasme, denoting injury; L. loedo, loesus; The last syllable is the Gr.,to speak.]

  1. To speak of the Supreme Being in terms of impious irreverence; to revile or speak reproachfully of God, or the Holy Spirit. 1 Ki 21. Mark 3.
  2. To speak evil of; to utter abuse or calumny against; to speak reproachfully of.

It is a sin that is noted to be prevalent in the end times as shown in today’s Scripture verses. It’s no wonder that the hearts of men are growing harder and colder as we get nearer to Christ’s Second Coming after the Tribulation. Can you imagine just how bad blasphemy will be during the Tribulation? Men’s hearts will fail them due to the 21 judgments which will be dispersed on the earth and its inhabitants!

The worst blasphemy of all, however, is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit!

Mat 12:30-32  He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.  (31)  Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.  (32)  And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

The Holy Spirit is the one who leads us to salvation in Christ. One cannot be born again unless he receives the Spirit of truth. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). No man can go to the Father but by Him. Once a person is born again (John 3:3, 3:7), he receives the Holy Spirit. If one is not born again, he does not have the Holy Spirit.

Joh 14:17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Therefore, if you do not receive Christ as your Saviour and repent of your sins, you are blaspheming the Holy Spirit and, therefore, have committed the unpardonable sin. Your mind and heart have become so hard that you can’t possibly be saved.

There is coming a time when it will be too late for you to repent and be saved. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already. Please click here and the link will open up in a separate tab You Can Be Born Again and Know It!
