God the Holy Spirit is an
actual person, just as God the
Father and Jesus are.
He is the 3rd person of the
Trinity and often overlooked
because He doesn't do a thing
to promote or speak of Himself,
but puts forth the things pertaining
to the Word of God, and of Jesus.
Because of the way in which He
works, He is often not treated as
equal with God the Father and Son,
nor taken seriously.
The Bible is very clear that The
Holy Spirit is God, and He
possesses all the characteristics
found in the other two persons of

of being possessed by the devil and
driving demons out in the power
of the devil. This was an insult to
the Holy Spirit.
The unforgivable sin today is
the state of continued unbelief.
The Spirit currently convicts the
unsaved world of sin, righteousness,
To resist that conviction and
willfully remain unrepentant is to
“blaspheme” the Spirit.
There is no pardon, for a person
who rejects the Spirit’s promptings
to trust in Jesus Christ and then
dies in unbelief.

The answer is No

be forgiven except one,"
"The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses
us from all sins.. God is
faithful and righteous to forgive
us our sins and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness".
1 John 1:5-10 In Acts 16:31:
“Believe in the Lord Jesus,
and you will be saved.”
Paul didn’t ask, “Have you ever
blasphemed against the Spirit of God?”
No, he said, “If you believe,
you will be saved.”

confess your sins, and invite Him into
your heart, and ask Him to save you,
all your sins will be forgiven and

Gifts of healing, power wisdom,

In other words , the Holy Spirit
