SIN GOD WILL NEVER FORGIVE
Introduction: What is the unpardonable sin? It is not a Legal sin; it is not a Mental
sin or a Verbal sin. It is a Spiritual
sin. It is a sin of the Heart (vv.24, 25; 34). Ps.103:12 tells us that
once saved all sin is forgiven. (Ps. 103:12) "As
far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our
transgressions from us" But there is one sin God will never
forgive in a lost person. This sin Grace cannot Erase and the Cross will
never Cleanse. People commit this sin every day. It is progressive. There
are at least three steps that come into the heart before this sin is
SUPERNATURAL DENIAL (VV.22-24)
The Miracles of
the Savior. (v.22, 23)
= Relieved. When Jesus shows up there is relief. Funerals turn to
Festivals, Sickness to Celebrations, and Diseases to Delights. Brother I
serve a Water Walking, Heaven Talking, Wine Turning, Fire Burning, Sin
Killing, Storm Stilling, Leper Cleansing, and Rapture Coming SAVIOR!!
= to be beside-self, astounded, out of wits. We ought to be amazed today.
There is rejoicing in heaven...Some yawn here, but their yelling there!
Some are sleeping here, but their shouting in glory! Some are reclining
here, but they are rejoicing up in heaven!
The Ministry of
the Spirit. (v.24)
deny the miracle so they tried to explain it away. "Beelzebub"
= dung god (The lord of the flies - god of garbage). (Illus: a Phoenician
god "garbage brings life")
the Holy Spirit. (vv.24-28) "Blasphemy" = to hurt or blast the reputation, to smite with
words that are insulting or injurious. The Pharisees sin consisted of the
unreasonable and absurd rejection of the Son of God as the Savior of man
in opposition to the plain testimony of the Holy Spirit. (Illus: Adrian
Rogers – “Rejecting Jesus with your eyes wide open”).
What's the big
deal about the Holy Spirit? EVERYTHING! He is God's agent of light. You
can't be saved without the Holy Spirit!
He doesn't do the
Saving, He does the Showing.
He doesn't do the
Cleansing, He does the Calling.
He doesn't do the
Delivering, He does the Drawing.
is the bearer of the Truth and it's a big, big deal. Every time you say no
it is a step in the wrong direction.
What is the sin
God will never forgive? Resisting the WORK of the Holy Spirit and
Rejecting His WITNESS of Jesus. What the Holy Spirit did to prove the
divinity of Christ, the Pharisees turned into an argument to show Christ
as an imposter (acting by Satan).
SPIRITUAL DECAY. (V.30)
A choice to make
You can say no
enough till you live in deception and think your ok.
today will make a decision. (See v.30) If you don’t say yes, you are
saying no! The truth is a big deal! The truth in a nutshell:
is none good – Rom.3:10
have sinned - Rom.3:23
you die on your best day lost you will go to hell.
loves you in spite of your sin and wants to save you – Rom.5:8.
deserves hell but God offers the gift of Eternal Life – Rom.6:23.
prescription for salvation – Rom. 10:9-10. – That’s the truth! Every
time you say no to Jesus as He speaks to your heart, you begin to live in
SEPARATION AND DAMNATION (VV.31, 32)
Helpless ...in this world now.
Hopeless... in the world to come.
is the result of Resisting the Holy Spirit's testimony and Rejecting Jesus
as Savior. You can say no long enough till one day you want have to
anymore, because He will stop calling you. What is the unpardonable sin?
Rejecting the way of the salvation of Christ in opposition to the fullest
evidence given. (Heb.2:3) It is the Calm, Determined, Persevering
rejection of Jesus Christ as the savior of man, in Complete Opposition to
all the testimony of His Word and Spirit.
Conclusion: The good news is that anyone with
the desire to be saved can be. Be saved today. After death all sin is
unpardonable. What will you do with this truth?
