This is another place in scripture that supports Jesus saying there shall not be forgiveness of the sin to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. I believe these verses shed the most light of its meaning. Lets take a closer look at these verses:
8Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: 9But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. 10And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
Jesus says if you confess me before men I will confess you. In other words, if you confess or acknowledge Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior before men he will recognize you as his brother or sister before the angels. But if you deny and don’t acknowledge Jesus before men as your personal Lord and Savior he will not recognize you as his brother or sister and will deny you before the angels.
Now, notice there is a difference in speaking against Jesus and denying him. What is it? Examples of speaking against Jesus: “Tongues are of the devil” or "divine healing and miracles is not for today "or “I don’t believe in God because…” Jesus said these signs shall follow believers that believe in him. This is speaking against Jesus but is forgivable. Example of denying Jesus: “There are numerous paths of God and there are several ways to God.” Jesus said he is the only way, not “a way” to God the Father. This would be denying Jesus as the only way to God the Father. Therefore denying him as Lord and Savior.
Now, there is got to be a connection of denying Jesus and blaspheming the Holy Spirit. What is it? What are a few of the reponsibilities of the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit teaches, testifies, convicts, guides and reveals truth (John 14:26; 15:26; 16:8, 13-14). …The Holy Spirit convicts you of your sin and testifies of Jesus. So, when you “stiff-neck” the Holy Spirit concerning your sin and reject the gospel to deny Jesus as your Lord and Savior… What are you doing? You are hardening your heart to sin and telling the Holy Spirit he is a liar about the testimony he is giving about Jesus. In other words, you are blaspheming the Holy Spirit’s testimony of Jesus Christ and relying on your own way to the Father. To deny Jesus is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit’s testimony of him. You can only play paddy-cake with the Holy Spirit for so long before your heart and mind gets so heardened by sin your beyond being convicted because of the searing of your conscience. Do you see the correlation between verses 9-10?
In conclusion: What is Jesus teaching in these verses? To deny him is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit which SHALL NOT BE FORGIVEN. Unforgivable means so bad as to be unable to be excused or pardoned. Therefore UR is a nice hope, but was never in the mind of God.
