When people talk about “the unforgiveable sin”, they refer to a statement Yeheshua (Jesus) made about someone who “blasphemes against the Holy Spirit”. He said, “It will not be forgiven him.” (Luke 12:10.) Mark’s account reads, “Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin” (Mark 3:29). Matthew words it little differently; “whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come” (Matthew 12:31-32).

If we step back and look at what had occurred, what was then happening, and what would take place, we have a better chance of understanding what Jesus meant by “the unforgivable sin”. We have the benefit of hindsight and an understanding of history. Think about the Jewish rulers’ rejection of Yeheshua as the Messiah. They denied the evidence of the Scriptures, which pointed to Him. When Yeheshua was in their midst, they rejected the evidence of “miracles and wonders and signs” that Jehovah performed by His Spirit through Him. Yeheshua knew they would eventually kill Him. With that done, He also knew there would still be opportunity for them to repent and accept Him as the Messiah and Savior.

After Yeheshua rose from the dead, His disciples watched Him ascend and cloud receive Him out of their sight. The Hebrew writer says Yeheshua entered heaven itself “once for all” and obtained “eternal redemption.” He entered heaven to “appear in the presence of God for us”. (See Hebrews 9:11-14, 24-25.) Jehovah judged Yeheshua’s life as one of perfect obedience and accepted His sacrifice as “the propitiation for our sins” (First John 2:2). Yeheshua “reconciled us to Himself through Christ” (Second Corinthians 5:18). With the work of atonement complete, Yeheshua “sat down at the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:12, 14).

On the Day of Pentecost following His ascension, the Holy Spirit gave witness that God had exalted Yeheshua to His right hand (Acts 2:1-4, 32-33). From that moment forward, with the work of atonement complete, the disciples could proclaim "repentance for forgiveness of sins" in Yeheshua’s name (Luke 24:47). They could not proclaim salvation in His name until the Spirit gave witness that Yeheshua was reigning as King, which meant His work of atoning for our sins was finished. The Holy Spirit continued to bear witness of the message of salvation by faith in Person of Yeheshua with miracles.

Going back to what Yeheshua said about “whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit”. If His hearers “speak against” the Holy Spirit by rejecting the Spirit’s witness of His presence among the disciples who proclaim salvation by faith in Yeheshua, then “It will not be forgiven him”. We are speaking of the Spirit's work after Yeheshua ascended. The rebellious unbelieving Jews who blasphemed the Holy Spirit experienced Jehovah God’s wrath as He poured it out on Jerusalem in AD 70.
