Sin Against Holy Spirit: Blasphemy

Because of musical idolatry in Israel, Isaiah 5 says that I will take away the hedge and break down the walls.

E-mail: What is the sin against the Holy Spirit?

It may be several things but since I am posting some material on Jude and the entire books of Enoch, I will add the following fuel to the Wednesday class.

The world speculates but my approach is to try to determine "who is the devil and his angels" for whom God and His ten-thousand angels will come for the ultimate judgment? Those who are burned up must have committed some unforgivable sin. The definition by Jude and the book of Enoch will surprise most Christian "worshipers."

See a more detailed paper on BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT

See the meaning of identifying Jesus as Beel-zebub.

Remember that I noted that the Bible sees false teachers as more than just ignorant and confused. Rather, they are treated by Jude as ancient agents of Satan or their offspring:

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3

"Grace" freed us from the burden laded upon us which was "anxiety created by religious rituals."

Lasciviousness is equated to reveling or Greek Komos. And Komos included activities directed to the body rather than the spirit.

Why is it important not to improvize?

For (because) there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Jude 4

God speaks eternal words to fight an enemy who never changes. Therefore, understand--

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ep.6:12

Jude quotes from the Book of Enoch which was considered canonical for many years but undoubtedly was rejected because it denounces the very practices forced into the church by agents of Satan.

If you reject it as inspired certain parts of it represent the universal understanding of the entire Ancient Near East which was endorsed throughout the Old and New Testament in words clear and not so clear.

We note also that Enoch recognizes two forms of spirits:

Enoch 22: 9 At that time therefore I inquired respecting him, and respecting the general judgment, saying, Why is one separated from another?
........... He answered, Three separations have been made between
........... ........... the spirits of the dead, and
........... ........... thus have the spirits of the righteous been separated.

Beelzebub - Lord of the Flies (See Alexander Hislop)

Was Jesus the ancient "god" or demon who was really the Satan figure? In their piping and dancing the Jews also tried to find out if Jesus was Dionysus or Bacchus, the god of wine. Indeed, many of them hoped for because they could turn from right living and eat, drink and be merry.

The Catholic Encyclopedia notes that a strong belief is that Beelzebub is related to the ancient Babylonian myths specificially connected with the flood. Whatever his name he is another word for Baal whom the Jews worshiped when they went into Canaan.

"The meaning of the term is "lord of the mansion" or dwelling, and it would be supposed by the Jews of this time to refer to the nether regions, and so be an appropriate name for the prince of that realm. Beelzeboul (Beelzebub) is used, then, merely as another name for Satan (Matt., xii, 24-29; Luke, xi, 15-22) by whom the enemies of Our Lord accused Him of being possessed and by whom they claimed He cast out demons. Their charge seems to have been that the good Our Lord did was wrought by the Evil One in order to deceive, which Jesus showed to be absurd and a wilful blindness...

"On the assumption that he is to be identified with the Philistine god, Lagrange thinks the idea is derived from the special prerogative of Beelzebub as fly-chaser (chasse-mouche). In the Babylonian epic of the deluge, "the gods gather over the sacrificer like flies" (see Driver, Genesis, 105). It was easy for the heathen Semites, according to Lagrange, to come to conceive of the flies troubling the sacrifice as images of spirits hovering around with no right to be there; and so Beelzebub, the god who drove away the flies, became the prince of demons in whose name the devils were exorcised from the bodies of the possessed.

In the Babylonian system, the duty of mankind was to serve God in "worship." This meant feeding, housing, clothing, entertaining and even providing the female musicians as "the harem of the gods." If the teams actually do mediate or "move into the presence of God" then the implication is that they are offered up as sexual partners.

On the contrary, Jesus came to give mankind rest where He did the Work and worship was to seek Him and honor him in our own spirits and not in temples or devices made with human hands. To try to "ascend up to Christ" is the unforgivable sin.

This story is recorded here.

The Text of Interest:

Matthew 12 speaks of blasphemy against the Holy Ghost:

He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. Matthew 12:30

Not everyone is with Christ. The overwhelming majority of the religious institution of the Jews and Greeks and Romans was against God. Therefore, the "many" of Paul's writings are against Christ simply by not being with Him in His teachings.

Jesus notes the two "spirits" in the world. We are working with him or we are working against him. And we cannot tell by the "skin" one wears and should not attempt to judge the inside by the outside. The use of "wherefore" seems to say that blasphemy is related to whether we have a gathering spirit or a scattering spirit. And that gathering is not in huge assemblies because it was prophesied that Jesus would not "call assemblies." Rather, the gathering is done by leaving the "manor" house and going into the fields.

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. Matthew 12:31

The "holy Ghost" or Spirit is the Mind of Christ (1 Cor 2) and one accepts Christ's Spirit by listening to and obeying Him:

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

When Christ speaks this is an expression of His Spirit or Mind. One who cuts away "all but the core" repudiates everything else Christ said or inspired.

Jesus didn't act like one of God's "annointeds" which could not be resisted. Therefore, it is possible to speak against Jesus the man but Jesus was the "body prepared for me" meaning God who gave up His clothing of glory and put on the form of a man. When Jesus spoke, it was the Mind of the Spirit. Therefore, while we debate and try to understand everthing Jesus said or inspired, to reject it as nonessential or not "gospel" is to speak against the Father or Spirit Who spoke through Jesus:

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. Matthew 12:32

I have made it clear that I agree with men like the Campbells, Walter Scott and every "church Father" I have access to, that the Holy Spirit is not a separated "God" but is the Mind of Christ as clearly defined by Paul in 1 Cor. 2.

Jesus minimized his "flesh" to prove that we don't literally eat His flesh but His Word which is Spirit. Or we "drink" the spirit and Isaiah 55 prophesied that this would be the water flowing from heaven and it must return to Him after cycling through the human worshiper.

Of cleansing the church, Paul wrote:

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word Ep.5:26

This means that to speak against or lie about the Words of Christ is to lie against God Who is pure or Holy Spirit. Why? Because the words were not authentic even if altered by Jesus in the flesh. Paul extended that to Himself and to the church in the command to "teach or preach" with the "singing and melody" being in the heart.

Paul clearly defines the "act" of speaking of preaching and prescribed the "resource" as Spirit or The Words of Christ. Consistent with the father of those who commit the unforgivable sin, singing "idle songs" or sentimental praise tunes is a direct repudiation of the value of Christ, the description of His Spirit and the clear commandment of Paul to the Ephesians and Colossians.

Yet, don't expect "those without ears" to be able to hear.

Therefore, Jesus could say that:

And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12: 47

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words,

hath one that judgeth him:
the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48

The merit of Christ's shed blood resides whereever He wishes to place it. The first place is in His Word. One does not have to disobey Christ to be lost: just not believe his testimony:

This is blaspheming the "spirit" or the Word or the Mind of Christ Who breathed spirit into the entire Bible as "the Spirit of Christ in the prophets." 1 Peter 1:11; Revelation 19:10.

Jesus bound up the "whole ball of wax" in His Words because

He knew that the spiritual mind could grasp them and obey them
and He knew that the "
serpent heads" slithering around the world would never had a clue.
The kingdom, therefore, was a hidden treasure.

This was not to predestinate the destinations of sincere people because Jesus didn't come to judge.

Rather, it was to separate out the truth lovers from those quite contended to speak their own words which was a violation of the meaning of the Sabbath and Fasting.

In this background to the question we are being led by Jesus to the book of Jude and the book of Enoch to define the unforgivable sin by defining those for whom god will come with His ten thousand angels.

Let's say that again: we can understand the unforgivable sin by looking at those for whom there is no possibility of hearing, repenting and obeying the Word.

The Jewish clergy had turned from the Word to rituals and therefore Jesus spoke a mystical language which mercinaries cannot understand (Matthew 13). And because they cannot grasp it, they deprive everyone else of the chance to hear it. The unforgivable sin of Jude and Enoch and all of the ancient records was to use music to "take away the key to knowledge." The sin was unforgivable because the "agents of change" had already sold their souls to Satan.

They are the secret agents of the Chief Viper, Satan. The Chief Viper's very name is assigned to "musical instruments" and "speaking in tongues" of the Babylonian religion.

Therefore, Jesus said here is the test.

Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. Matthew 12:33

"You can't fool mother nature or spiritual people." Jesus didn't say that these "trees" could be made good. They had refused to "take up the water" and could not bear fruit. When Jesus saw such a tree He didn't propose changing its nature but He withered it down.

O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:34 (evil means degenerated from original virtue)

See Enoch Two for the Serpents

The vipers were offspring of their chief in the garden:

Echidna (g2191) ekh'-id-nah; of uncert. or.; an adder or other poisonous snake (lit. or fig.): - viper.

Echthros (g2190) ekh-thros'; (to hate); hateful (pass. odious, or act. hostile); usually as a noun, an adversary (espec. Satan): - enemy, foe

In Gnosticism, this was ZOE also identified as the "Beast."

The answer from Jesus, Paul, Isaiah, Enoch and all of the extra-biblical resources: "You cannot speak truth." As a son of a liar these people (who seem so human) can neither hear spiritual truth, see spiritual things or speak the truth. This is the most visible sign: the fruit from the "tree" of the garden of Eden can be tested. The "trees" were also symbols of the Assyrians or Chaldeans or Babylonians who deceived the nations by "sucking up all of the water." (Ezekiel 31)

Isaiah 30 defined how these "tall trees" who sucked up all of the "water" would be destroyed:

And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it. Isa 30:32

The Apocalyptic Odes of Solomon spiritualizes musical instruments. Satanic agents use the arts to "restrain the waters." But they do not get away with it for long.

He is the one who "sows" tares among the good seed as we will note below:

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. Mt.13:25

The unforgivable sinner minimizes the Word of God in song and sermon not just to do book reviews. No. He is actively sowing thistles in the wheat field and doing all in his power to blow away the wheat seed. In a dry time crab grass will grow on a rock while the fescue dies. When the rain comes the fescue will be gone and the crab grass will look grand. However, when winter comes it will die -- but its seed will be there for next year. That is unforgivable. Look again:

O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:34 (evil means degenerated from original virtue)

Jesus will further identify "this generation" with the "vipers" or agents of Satan most pronounced in the cult of Dionysus alluded to by Paul in his "singing" statements.

The enemy in Jude and Enoch were dumber than a tree which obeyed the will of God. They decided that they had a better plan and therefore rejected the Word of God:

And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. Luke 7:29
........... But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God for themselves, being not baptized of him. Luke 7:30

Totally consistent with Jude and Enoch rejecting the counsel of God led them to imitate those under the Viper's influence:

And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? Luke 7: 31

They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept Luke 7: 32

In many ancient documents including Enoch and Jude the piping and dancing was to gather the "seekers" out of God's holy presence down into the valley of Cain.

John Chapter 12

The sons of Satan or vipers were primarily the Legalistic Jews who continued to teach the Law of Moses which had been "added because of transgression." This included "lading" the people with tithing and selling them sick lambs (books?) as a purely commercial enterprise. As part of this the temple crowd (perhaps no more than ten thousand) they continued to pipe and dance even during the Feast of Tabernacles. These things were part of the sacrificial system and to continue them was to denounce Jesus Christ and the "spiritual" kingdom He established where you do not tithe to support the priest to make your offering because you have been excluded because of the first musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.

He is right to classify them as a generation of vipers.

Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. John 12:9
........... But the chief priest consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; John 12: 10
........... ........... Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus. John 12: 11

On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, John 12: 12

Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna (Help, save us!): Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. John 12: 13

And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, John 12: 14

Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an asss colt. John 12: 15

These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him. John 12: 16

The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record John 12: 17 .

For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. John 12: 18

The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing?
the world is gone after him. John 12: 19

And there were certain Greeks (Hellenistic Jews) among them that came up to worship at the feast: John 12: 20

The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus. John 12: 21

Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. John 12: 22

And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. John 12: 23

Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die,

it abideth alone: but if it die,
it bringeth forth much fruit. John 12: 24

He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. John 12: 25

If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. John 12: 26

Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. [My Lord never chickened out: He was close to death in the garden and ask God that He not die there. He was human but He never cringed at the cross. Neve!] John 12: 27

Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. John 12: 28

God does not have three names: Holy is not the first name of a "person" (people) whose name is "Holy Spirit." Jesus or Joshua means "Jehovah-Saves and it is the only name we are to honor.

The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. John 12: 29

Jesus answered and said,

This voice came not because of me,
but for your sakes. John 12: 30

Now is the judgment of this world:
........... now shall the prince of this world be cast out. [The Kosmocrator, the Satan of Judas] John 12: 31

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12: 32
........... This he said, signifying what death he should die. John 12: 33

The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man? John 12: 34

Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. John 12: 35

While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. John 12: 36

But though he had done so many miracles before them,

yet they believed not on him: John 12: 37

[The religionists were ready to cast Jesus off the hill like Azazel the Scape Goat when He let the news out that not many miracles were done and then only as signs]

That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake,

Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? John 12: 38

Therefore they could not believe that Esaias said again, John 12: 39

He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart;

that they should not see with their eyes,
nor understand with their heart,
and be converted,
and I should heal them. John 12: 40

Isaiah 48 has God showing why eyes were blinded. They knew the false prophets would prophesy for a price (the fatal sin) and get the glory.

See what Enoch says was the cause of this unforgivable condition.

The undestanding of many peoples of the time was that when people do anything to turn others away from the Words of God their spirits undergo a permanent change. They simply are not able to confess but must keep up the show because there is no other way to relieve their misery but to suck others into their sin.

Enoch has several examples of those who experienced a permanent change in the spirit and could not hear. This did not keep them from being "blind leading the blind."

These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him. John 12: 41

Nevertheless among the chief rulers John 12: 42

also many believed on him;
but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him,
lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

In Luke a similar passage reads:

And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. Luke 7:29

But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God for themselves, being not baptized of him. Luke 7: 30

See The Second Book of Enoch

The unforgivable sin is to refuse to act upon or to lie about the Word of God because these are the explicit Words of the Invisible God. The eternal prototype of these agents of Satan is defined here and by Enoch quoted by Jude. Enoch gives the refusal to honor the Words of God "as they have been delivered" as the fundamental sin of the "roving planets" who are so shameless that they feed themselves at the love feasts but have nothing good to say. They "cloud up and rain all over you" but Enoch and Jude claims that they are "empty clouds."

Two terminal sins are listed by Enoch: First, following the agents of Satan whom he taught to make and use musical instruments (The Jubal story) in order to take away the key to knowledge.

The second sinner was the abortionist.

The following words of Jesus in Greek show that they were trying to force Him into the effeminate dancing of the Dionysus girls while they played wind instruments. This, in turn, was the "triumph over" Judas would be sent to force upon Jesus as prophesied in Psalm 41:

And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? Luke 7: 31

They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept Luke 7: 32 .

For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil. Luke 7: 33

The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners Luke 7: 34

But wisdom is justified of all her children. Luke 7: 35

Or as I, mere mortal, would say: "You are liars."

Why had they committed the unforgivable sin:

For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. John 12: 43

Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. John 12:44

And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. John 12: 45

I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46

And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12:47

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48

Jesus minimized His flesh but warned about His Words because they were the Spirit of God which not even He would alter:

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. John 12:49

And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. John 12:50

Hebrews Explains Isaiah 5: God Sings about the Unforgivable Sin

Israel was God's "Vineyard" and He had built and planted it to be a primary food product for the people. He built a wall around it to keep the "beasts" outside:

And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. Isaiah 5:22

When Isreal failed God asked:

What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? Isaiah 5:4

And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: Isaiah 5: 5

And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. Isaiah 5: 6

In Amos, the musical religious festivals had deprived the people of the Word as "food and water." When it quits raining upon a group then you know that God has taken away His Word and they will hunger and thirst for it but can never again find it.

For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry. Isaiah 5: 7

Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth Isaiah 5: 8

All of the "families" join together rather than being scattered out into the world to be a blessing. "Groupies don't gather."

In the Amos parallel, what follows here is the frequent "religious festivals" where feasting and worship was the same:

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them Isaiah 5: 11

And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Isaiah 5: 12

Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Isaiah 5: 13

Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. Isaiah 5: 14

Of the king of Bablon as Lucifer's agent, God warned:

Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the maggots cover thee. Is.14:11

God didn't tell them how to repent because they had committed the unforgivable sin. Paul repeats this story to the Hebrews:

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, Hebrews 6:4

And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, Hebrews 6:5

If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Hebrews 6:6

For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: Hebrews 6:7

But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. Hebrews 6:8

In Chapter 10 Paul also discussed the unforgivable sin

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) Hebrews 10:23

And let us consider one another to provoke (dispute, dialog) unto love and to good works: Hebrews 10:24

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:25

The sin of the Jews was that the clergy took away the key to knowledge. In the early church, the priests repeated this. Paul had commanded dialog more than preaching unless you are inspired or teaching those who have not heard. However, the early clergy took away the dialog and even congregational singing and put it into the hands of the people. This led, and leads, to repeating the sin described by Amos so that people starve for the Word.

This led, like all earlier agencies, in taking away the Word from the people, leaving them naked and unprepared and therefore this is unforgivable.

The reason for Paul's demand for a one another teaching rather than a priestly liturgy was to prevent the unforgivable sin:

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, Hebrews 10:26

But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. Hebrews 10:27

He that despised Moses law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Hebrews 10:28

Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? Hebrews 10:29

"Missing church" was not the unforgivable sin. Rather, despising Moses Law is paralled to despising the "Spirit of Grace." This Spirit of always defines more than a personal indwelling of one third of the Godhead.

In all of the examples, the "Spirit" is the mental attitude of Christ revealed in His Word.

Spirit is "the mental disposition of Christ" which is the Holy Spirit.

Grace is "the divine influence upon the heart and its reflection in life."

In the entire history of God's Word, it is self-selected "super apostles" who commit the unforgivable sin and take a lot of people with them.

Matthew 13 Further Explanation of Isaiah 6 and 29:

When Jesus had spoken parables He concluded by saying:

9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables:

because they seeing see not;
and hearing they hear not,
neither do they understand.

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15 For this peoples heart is waxed gross,
and their ears are dull of hearing,
and their eyes they have closed;
lest at any time they should see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and should understand with their heart,
and should be converted,
and I should heal them.

The "kardia" is the thoughts or feelings of the mind as the "spirit" is the mental disposition of the "inner man."

Those who refuse to hear and honor the words of God are most often the "many" condemned by Paul who sold their words as "gospel." However, even as they were perhaps the unwitting (or half-witted) agents of Satan they are dancing the terminal death of those who will be burned.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.

This is he which received seed by the way side.

20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word;

and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

23 But he that received seed into the good ground is

he that heareth the word,
and understandeth it;
which also beareth fruit,
and bringeth forth,
some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together

first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them:
but gather the wheat into
my barn.

31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

Enoch prophesied and Jude quoted him to say that God will come with ten thousand of his angels to execute judgement upon those who cannot be faithful to His Word. The result is that no effort is spared to keep the Word as Seed from taking root and growing. Enoch and many Old Testament examples show that "musical worship" (so called) is the key Satanic device to destroy the "seed."

And don't forget that these are not normal human agents: they are principalities and powers in high places or in the "fields" to destroy the Word by jerking it away or by lying about it as their "father" did in the Garden of Eden.

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Why is this so hard to grasp by people who pretend to be faithful to the Word? It is because they have received the "Mark" and cannot see and cannot hear but, as blind guides, they just keep on trying to lead.

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price,

went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven, is like unto a man that is an householder,

which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

55 Is not this the carpenters son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house.

58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

If they didn't believe why didn't Jesus just keep on preaching over and over? Remember that the only command He issued was to "go, preach" and in the earlier commission when people did not believe they were to "shake the dust off their feet" because the Gospel message is the "fish hook" or the "fishing net" to catch the righteous -- along with some "trash fish" who will be with them until Jesus sorts them out.

The unforgivable sin can best be understood by grasping who it is who will be with "the devil and his angels" in hell. That is, those who will find no way to accept the Words of Christ and obey and not pervert them.

Except the book of Revelation, Jude is the last warning to define what seems almost like extraterrestrials who in the beginning and in the end-time Babylon form of religion will be at the center of power in the churches.

The book of Jude and the Book of Enoch quoted by him point directly to the very common understanding that Satan taught young men how to use the power of music, mixed sex choirs and eloquence to seduce the spiritual tribes of mankind down from God's Holy Mountain and into the dark valley of the Cainites.

In these stories, even those who want to find their way out of their mess cannot find their way back because "the nature of the waters" have been changed and the Bible becomes like a book at the Tower of Babel when the tongues were confused.

Well, that is what I think right now. I will ammend these notes as we go.
