AND WHOSOEVER SPEAKETH A WORD AGAINST THE SON OF MAN, IT SHALL BE FORGIVEN HIM: BUT WHOSOEVER SPEAKETH AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST, IT SHALL NOT BE FORGIVEN HIM, NEITHER IN THIS WORLD, NEITHER THE WORLD TO COME.
In this chapter we see Jesus Christ going about doing good things for the people. He has just healed a man that was possessedwith a devil, blind and dumb. The ( religious crowd , being the pharisees has accused him of having power given by ( Beelzebub ).thye prince of the devils.
At this point, Jesus Christ began to preach a message to him and all that were there.Can you imagine, a man; looking into the eyes of the very God of the universe and calling him a blasphemer? We’ll get back to this but, I want you to notise one thing Jesus said to him:
( Matthew 12:28 )
( BUT ) if I cast out devils by the spirit of God, then the Kingdom od God is come unto you.
THe word ( but ) there is for every person that was listenng to him. It’s decision time for those listening. They each must make up their minds whether they believe he is truly ( God in Flesh ) or just another man. That goes even for the pharisees. When Jesus made this statement, he was speaking to the people of Israel. As most people know, he came to the Jew first. He presented himself as their rightful King. As a whole, the Nation of Israel rejected him as such. This is where we see the power spoken in ( Matthew 12:28 ).
