Dear Carol, If I may expand on Jesse's comment. Jesus warned the Jews that if they rejected (blasphemed) the Holy Ghost they would not be forgiven. He prayed for their rejection of himself on the cross, interceding for them, with the Father because they did not understand what they were doing. Israel later rejected the Holy Ghost's witness through Stephen (see Acts 7) and committed blasphemy against the Holy Ghost through Stephen. God then set them aside for judgment and raised another Apostle of for this age until the time of the Gentiles be full. God will then fulfill his promises to Israel for the future Kingdom. It is the Holy Ghost that witnesses to us today through His word. If we reject His word we condemn ourselves. Jesse is right about what it means for us today. We commit blasphemy of the Holy Ghost by rejection of Christ alone for our salvation. There is no other sin that has not already been, is or will be not covered by the faith of Christ for us today.

Carol,

Blasphemy is a word that is used to expresses rejection. This would be a person who refuses to gather with Christ in the whole process of the testimony of God's Spirit. If they reject God's Spirit, and His persuasion, and His conviction over their life, they cannot be forgiven for that. A person can be forgiven for everything else.

But if a person rejects the testimony of God's Spirit that is convicting them of their need for Christ, and their need to be saved, if they reject that, there is no forgiveness.

The sin problem has been dealt with. It's been paid for. Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world. So salvation has been paid for. Christ paid the penalty for sin by shedding His blood for the remission of sin. But if a person rejects that salvation, they are rejecting Christ. Salvation is a gift from God. He died for the sins of the whole world. If a person rejects that, they are rejecting the conviction of God's Spirit showing them their need for Christ. That is what it means to blaspheme the Holy Spirit.

I hope this helps!
