“And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him” (Luke 12:10).

The work of revelation accomplished by the Holy Spirit is to make Christ known, and to inspire, illuminate, and empower the word of God that it might be understood and lived out. The blasphemy of the Spirit is a danger facing not those seeking to follow him but, rather, those to whom we speak about the works of God in Christ, and their rejection of what the Spirit has made known to them. For those who would reject his forgiveness there is no forgiveness.
