Blaspheming the Holy Spirit

JESUS SPEAKING

                “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.  Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’  And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.  Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.  So shall it also be with this wicked generation” (Mathew 12: 43-45.)

INSPIRED THOUGHTS

                The human body is a home; it is a resting place for the soul.  Evil spirits can invade the body and cause destruction and suffering; but these harmful spiritual entities can be expelled.  When a demon is exercised, the possessed experience restoration; overwhelmed by the Spirit of God, they begin to live healthy, fulfilling lives.  The dispossessed demons however, dwell in torment; they are only satisfied when they are causing human misery; many demons do return and attempt to re-possess their former victims; their unsavory efforts fail however when they discover the presence of the Holy Spirit.  Yet there are many who deny God after they have been cleansed.  They blaspheme the Lord, and push the Holy Spirit out of their hearts.  When the demons return there is no one to oppose them; they invade the individual, and their once orderly lives are plummeted in to a state of even greater chaos; the evil is overwhelming; the depravity is appalling; and the pain is unimaginable.

                One day in the coffee shop I was telling a woman about the love of God; suddenly a man interjected.  He claimed that God was evil and then began quoting scriptures to support his opinion (he was extremely knowledgeable about the bible.)  He revealed that he had once been a Pastor; he had invited the Holy Spirit in to his heart and had been transformed.  At some point he lost faith; he turned away from his maker; he expelled the Spirit of the Lord from his life; and (I believe) he was immediately possessed by an evil spirit.  His life plummeted in to perversion and depravity; he was living with a woman he professed to be his wife; yet they were both engaging in sexual intercourse with other partners.  He had no job, and no car; he had begun to smoke cigarettes, and was not ashamed to tell me he was getting drunk every night.  The most disturbing phenomenon however, was that he was actively attempting to turn others away from their faith in Jesus Christ. 

                Many are knowingly, or unknowingly, possessed by evil entities.  When the Holy Spirit enters the heart, it expels every demon.  Yet not everyone continues in the Lord.  Many turn away from Him; they kick God out of their hearts and lives.  In turn, they spiral downward in to corruption and depravity.  If you believe, remain in the Lord and never let him go; allow him to protect you from evil spirits; may He always be your guide; may you never lose faith, and may He dwell in your heart forever.

                “Lord, may no demon ever live within us.  May our hearts be pure, and our minds always be satisfied with righteous things.  May we never blaspheme Your name; may we continually serve You in the Spirit.  We pray for those who have made the mistake of departing from Your presence.  May they come to repent and be cleansed of their evil ways.  We love You Father, we praise You, and we thank You, and we ask and pray all of these things in Jesus Christ’s name.  Amen.”  God bless all of you.
