1. God became flesh and then Spirit; to save His people from sins.

"Genesis 1:31 says, And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." So, God did create all things on earth as good. So, when created, they were all good. Then God gave Adam or men full freedom to do anything he wanted, except a very limited command. Man disobeyed the command of God using his free will. God cursed man, women, and the devil. A few generations latter, in Genesis 6:12 says, "God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth." So, the flesh men corrupted themselves, and it was sin. "Psalm 25:7 says, Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: ..." So, when we were born we were good, we did not have sins, and sins began at our youth. So, God came to the world to save us from our sins. He became flesh and came to the world to forgive our sins, and he became God again and came to the world to save us by sanctification to perfection. But God says that he will not forgive a certain sin. Which is it; and why will he not forgive this? Let us study the topic.

2. If we do not forgive sins of others, God will not forgive us.

Jesus was teaching his disciples how to pray. The prayer says in "Matthew 6:12, .. forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." In the prayer Jesus told us to ask forgiveness, as we forgive others. That is, if we do not forgive others, we ask God not to forgive us. But if we comply with the wholesome word, it is not to forgive ungodly sins of criminals, but to forgive the brethren in the Lord, that is to forgive each other. Jesus repeats it to reaffirm in "15, But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Mark 11:26 also says the same thing. So, if we do not forgive our brethren in the Lord, God will not forgive our sins.

3. Blasphemy against men is forgivable, against God is not forgivable.

What is blasphemy? It is speech of animosity and insult; calling God as Satan. "Matthew 12:15 says, But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;" The Pharisees and scribes, that is, the clergies of that time, hated Jesus because Jesus manifested the true power of God, but they did not have power. They were supposed to be servants of God, but they served the devil. The same thing is happening even now. So, Jesus moved away from them, and still manifesting the power of God. "22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. 23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?" People were beginning to realize that Jesus could be the Messiah, which is the son of David. "24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils." Instead of rejoicing and being happy, they felt jealous, competition, hatred, and animosity because they were of the devil, but not of God. They said that Jesus was casting out devils not by God, but by Beelzebub. It was the speech of animosity and hatred and calling God as the devil; so, it was blasphemy. Further it was against God, because it was God and the Holy Ghost in Jesus was doing the miracles and so, they were calling God as Beelzebub, Satan, the devil. Since their blasphemy is against God, it will never be forgiven. Jesus says, "28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you." Jesus told the clergies of that day, that he was casting the devils by the Holy Ghost. "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." God may forgive most blasphemies, but he will not forgive blasphemy against God; here, the Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost is God. Both verses say the same thing, and so, they are repeated and emphasized. Let us see why?

4. Man Jesus was not God; but Father and Holy Ghost were in him.

That is, "the Word" was God. He became and lived as a mere man, who was approved of God, as in John 1:14 and Acts 2:22. ["John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,... Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, ..:"] So, Jesus lived as 100% man. But the Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost, came down and was abiding in this man Jesus, as in Matthew 3:16. ["Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:"]. And God the Father was also living in him as in John 14:10&11. ["John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake."] Both verses emphasize that God the father was living in him. So, even though Jesus was a man, God the Father and the Holy Ghost were inside him. Pharisees, Scribes, Roman soldiers, and the mob put Jesus to shame, yelled at him so many blasphemous words, tortured him, and killed him. "Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Many of them could have been forgiven for this sin. It was because their sin was against the man Jesus. But look at the next. Jesus was casting out devils by the Spirit of God. It is in Matthew 12:28. But the religious people were telling that Jesus cast out devils by Beelzebub; by telling this, they blaspheme God the Holy Ghost; and so, this sin will not be forgiven to them. Please notice; that some of them who blasphemed and killed Jesus might have been forgiven. Why? Jesus was a man, and sin against man may be forgiven. But blasphemy, an angry insult, calling God as Satan will not be forgiven, because it is sin against God. It is in verses 31&32. If you like to study Man Jesus, please refer to this link: "God became flesh."

5. God has Exemption, to forgive sin of blasphemy against God.

Apostle Paul was forgiven the blasphemy against God. Such exemption is very rare. Let us see the situation. "1 Timothy 1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; 13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting." These verses are easy to understand. Paul was extremely aggressive and zealous for God. He thought that he was serving God, while assisting the killing of Stephen; it is in Acts 7:58. ["Acts 7:58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul."] Paul says that he has obtained mercy because he has done it ignorantly in unbelief. Since we came to this passage, let me bring one other point from verse 15. The apostle says, "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." False preachers, who are of the devil, preach that Paul the apostle was the worst sinner, as if he was like a fornicator and murderer. Even he was forgiven; and so, God will surely forgive us also. Then they join this verse with "Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?," and make a case that our sins are very much less to the sins of Paul the apostle. So, if Paul receives a crown in heaven, we will inherit heaven for sure. Such false preachers are of the devil and will be punished. The sin of Paul was ignorance of the truth about Jesus Christ, but he was very zealous for God. But apostle Paul was blameless, and he committed no sins against God. It is in Philippians 3:5&6. ["5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless."]

6. Preachers like John MacArthur twist unforgivable sin and deceive.

"Luke 12:10 And 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." Here, Son of man was the Man Jesus, and the Holy Ghost was God the Spirit. Matthew 3:16 says, "Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:" God the Spirit came into man Jesus. That is, God the Holy Ghost was inside the man Jesus; so, they were two. If they kill Jesus, it may have forgiven them, since Jesus was a man. But if they blaspheme his miracles, they insult the Holy Ghost in him, who is God; and so, that will not be forgiven them. But John MacArthur says that the man Jesus is deity and God, and rejecting the man Jesus as God, is rejecting the deity, which is Spirit. Bible never says that man Jesus is God, rather the bible calls him flesh, it is in John 1:14. But, John MacArthur tricks Christians, by calling the man Jesus as deity and God, and says that if we do not accept the man Jesus as God, it is blasphemy and the unforgivable sin against the holy Spirit. It is twist of the truth. Further, blasphemy is insulting with animosity, and calling God as Beelzebub. It is nothing to do with accepting man Jesus as God or deity. His job as a theologian is to twist the word of God to establish the doctrine of the devil. But pastors and preachers work for their living, and they have no other choice, but to accept the doctrine of theologians and churches. Jesus Christ says, in "Matthew 15:14, Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." And John MacArthur calls all Holy Ghost manifestations as works of the devil, which is the exact blasphemy against God and unforgivable sin. So, their sins will not be forgiven. Churches honor him as a great theologian and pastor; and Christians follow him. But Jesus Christ will throw them all into the lake of fire for eternal punishment.

7. Sins committed after knowing truth or receiving Holy Ghost, are not forgiven.

We saw that anybody may be forgiven of any sin, except the sin of blasphemy against God. But do you know that no sin will be forgiven to one group? That is, one sin will never be forgiven to people that is blasphemy against God, and one group of people will never be forgiven if they commit any sin. Who are they? It appears horrible to them, but actually it is just the opposite. It is to be with great power and honor. When Jesus was man, he challenged the religious people saying who can find sin in me? It is in John 8. "46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God." Jesus says that he was speaking the truth; and you will hear and live his truth only if you are of God. If you do, it will bring God the Father and the Holy Ghost to abide in you. And then, you will not, and even you cannot, commit sin. It is also in "1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." Christians, who are not of God, will not believe such verses of truth. They are afraid of such verses and will fight against them.

Let us see two sets of such verses. Study them. Hebrews 10:26&27. "26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries." That is, if you "have received the knowledge of the truth," you will be like the man Jesus; God the Father and the Holy Ghost will be abiding in you, and you will have the power just like Jesus, not to sin. At this point you cannot sin. Now, "if you sin wilfully," you will be sinning despite the power of God in you; then your sins will not be forgiven. Let us see the next set of verses. "Hebrews 6:4 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, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 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." These verses also say the same thing. There is no use to fight the word of God with our silly arguments. So better be careful. Apostle Peter says in "2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire." Here, the truth was given to them, but they became like dogs and pigs. Peter confirms what Hebrews says. But most bible-scholars have made fools out of themselves with these verses just to please people. They deny the truth, twist them, give so many false interpretations to prove that these verses do not even mean what they say. These men are evil, and are servants of Satan, who is another Jesus. But the verses are not scary at all, as it seems. God gives them enough power not to sin. So, they will not sin, and they cannot sin. So, believe the truth. Let me give a few links for related topics, if you are interested: 1, "Truth." 2, "Forgiven, Overcome." 3, "Lamb, Scapegoat."

8. Hindrances to preachers to the basic doctrines of the bible.

As Christians, we must know some of the basic and simple truth, which are very important. Preachers ignore them since they appear very simple; but on the run, they make serious doctrinal errors and lead the whole congregation to hell. Let us see couple of them.

(1). Son of man verses God the Son: Or the Man Jesus verses the Lord Jesus Christ: God the word became flesh, who was a mere man. He was killed and God raised him from his death, and he did ascend to heaven. There, he was anointed as God as he was God previously, and he was sent back to the world as God in the omnipotent Spirit, who is invisible as in Acts 3:26. He is God, God the Son, and the Lord Jesus Christ. One person was a mere man in flesh, and he does not exist anymore. Now he exists in the world as the other person, who is God in the omnipotent Spirit. We must know the God in the Spirit who is existing, and must know the difference. It is in the link: "Man and God." Preachers do not know the difference and so, they make a lot of errors in the basic doctrine of Jesus Christ.

(2). The holy Spirit verses the Holy Ghost: God gives the holy Spirit as a gift to us to lead us in the ways of God. And the holy Spirit is given to man, and so, he is under man, subject to man, helping man or guiding the man. A man can grieve the Spirit and even quench the Spirit. But the Holy Ghost is God, he is omnipotent, and he can and will destroy a rebellious man here and in eternity. One Spirit is part of born-again man, and the other is almighty God. We can quench the one, but the other can quench us. If you like to study the details, please refer this link: "Spirit Ghost." If we do not know the difference, ignorant evil false preachers will deceive us, and mess up in the truth. So, be alert and know the truth.

Your Feedback

Looking for the true gospel? This site has the true gospel!

What is the true gospel and what are false gospels?

Matthew 28:20, & Mark 16:15. Jesus Christ preached his commandments to obey, as his Gospel; it is the true Gospel to inherit Eternal life. Genesis 3:1-4 & 2 Corinth 11:2-4. But Preachers, who are Serpents of Satan, preach the life of man Jesus just to believe, but not to live as a chaste virgin, as the gospel; it is another gospel, which cannot and will not give Eternal life.

What will the true Gospel do?

The true gospel will convert evil people to do good and thereby they will inherit the kingdom in heaven. John 3:19-21 say that people are two kinds, evil and true. Evil doers will not come to the Light, who is God; but people of truth come to God for their deeds to be made manifest. We have good and evil people by our standard of our society or culture. These evil people may be converted to be doers of truth by the power of God, and they may inherit the kingdom of God in heaven.
