To Those Blaspheming the Holy Spirit

When people called the power of the Holy Spirit demonic, Jesus always told them that their children (sons, fruit, disciples) would show them their results.

 

In other words: They say that the power of the Holy Spirit is demonic but Jesus said their children and disciples will judge them, because their sons won’t be able to get delivered, or deliver others from demonic power.

 

There is no perfect Church out there… But I would much rather go to a Spirit-filled church with a minute amount of bad doctrine than a church where are my children will learn to reject the Holy Spirit. You can always teach the Bible to someone who is open to the Holy Ghost and you can always bring correction, intercession, and positive change to a church or a Pastor that is humble.
But that intellectual pride that resists correction is hard to overcome, because contentions of offense are like the bars of a castle… and blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the only ONLY sin that will not be forgiven.

PHILLIPS Jesus knew what they were thinking and said to them, “Any kingdom divided against itself is bound to collapse, and no town or household divided against itself can last for long. If it is Satan who is expelling Satan, then he is divided against himself—so how do you suppose that his kingdom can continue? And if I expel devils because I am an ally of Beelzebub, what alliance do your sons make when they do the same thing? They can settle that question for you! But if I am expelling devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has swept over you unawares!
