Here in Mathew 12, we find an example of what it means to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. Pharisees claimed that Jesus was casting out demons by Satan’s authority.
We must be careful that we never proclaim someone who is filled with the Holy Spirit is being led by Satan or his minion. We do need to have discernment, as the Jezebel spirit can hang around someone who is not fully listening to the Holy Spirit. This does not mean they are possessed, it simply means that they need deliverance. Nobody who is filled with the Holy Spirit can be possessed by demons, but those things can hang around if we are in need of deliverance.
We also need discernment to see the difference between the Holy Spirit and Satan’s version of a false Holy Spirit.
Ask the Lord to reveal to you anything that is not pleasing to him. We may need to be delivered from things that have happened in our past. Unforgiveness and continuing in sin that we have repented from are just a few examples. The Holy Spirit may have commanded us to do something in faith and if we ignore that, we are in disobedience which is a sin. When we repent and are saved, that does not cover future sin! If we fall, we ask for forgiveness then pick ourselves up and continue in our walk with the help of the Holy Spirit.
There is no forgiveness for blasphemy against the Holy Spirit and it will guarantee you of being tossed into the lake of fire.
22 Then a demon-possessed man who was blind and unable to speak was brought to Him. He healed him, so that the man could both speak and see. 23 And all the crowds were astounded and said, “Perhaps this is the Son of David!”
24 When the Pharisees heard this, they said, “The man drives out demons only by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”
25 Knowing their thoughts, He told them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is headed for destruction, and no city or house divided against itself will stand. 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, who is it your sons drive them out by? For this reason they will be your judges. 28 If I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. 29 How can someone enter a strong man’s house and steal his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his house. 30 Anyone who is not with Me is against Me, and anyone who does not gather with Me scatters.
31 Because of this, I tell you, people will be forgiven every sin and blasphemy, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. 32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the one to come.
