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
It is for 'born again' Christians, it is
not a religion, it is a living relationship
with God, it is not for the unbelieving.
The Holy Spirit indwells in us when
we accept Jesus as our savior.
He lives in us, sealing
(making sure) our salvation
and eternal life.
What is blasphemy against
the Holy Spirit?
Jesus said that
"the blasphemy against
the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven"
so the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not

including driving demons out
of people by the power
of the Holy Spirit. Instead
of recognizing the source of Jesus’
power and accepting Him as God’s
Son, the religious leaders accused Him
of being possessed by the devil and
driving demons out in the power
of the devil. This was an insult to
the Holy Spirit.
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.
'For God so loved the world that
he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him
shall not perish but have
'Whoever believes in the Son
has eternal life, but whoever
rejects the Son will not see life,
for God’s wrath remains on him.'
Can a true Christian believer, whose
salvation is in Jesus, be guilty of
blaspheming the Holy Spirit?
The answer is No
Jesus does not say, "All sins
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
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.”
If you ask Jesus for forgiveness and
confess your sins, and invite Him into your
heart, and ask Him to save you,
all your sins will be forgiven and blotted out.
You won't be guilty of the unforgivable sin.
God is awesome!
The Holy Spirit is a vital part of
Is by convicting of sin and showing
who Jesus is;
Is by giving assurance that we are
indeed children of God;
Is by cleansing, controlling and filling
the believer as the temple of God.
From the moment of spiritual birth
the believer has the Holy spirit.
We are Filled by the Holy
Spirit by Faith.

Matthew 5:6, John 7:37-39
2. Confess your sins.
By faith thank God that He has
forgiven all of your sins, past, present

Colossians 2:13-15, 1 John 1, 2:1-3,
3. Present every area of your

Trust in God and in His promises,
is the only means by which a
Christian can live the
