Christ warned us against blaspheming the Holy Spirit because it is unpardonable, while all other sins and blasphemies might be pardoned – Mark 3:28-29. I have always wondered why only the Holy Spirit in particular and not the son or even the father Himself. Well, to get some insight into why this is, we will need to start at the beginning.
In Genesis 1:26 – 27 we read ” And God said let us make man in our image, after our likeness…then it goes on in verse 27 to say that God made man in His image, male and female. Who is the “us” God is referring to? The bible tells us in 1 John 5:7 that there are three that bear record in heaven, the father, the word and the Holy Spirit. The father is evident, and in a previous message we found out that the Word is Christ, so now to the Holy Spirit. Romans 1:20 tells us that to know what is happening in the invisible realm, we need look no further than the visible one. Life on earth comes from a man and a women, likewise life in the heavenlies. What does that mean? The image of the family unit here on earth is man, woman and child, likewise in heaven we have father, son and Holy Spirit. Yes, you got it, the holy spirit is a feminine spirit!
In the apocrypha, the book of Wisdom of Solomon 9:17-18 tells us that wisdom is the Holy Spirit. ” 17 And thy counsel who hath known, except thou give wisdom, and send thy Holy Spirit from above?
18 For so the ways of them which lived on the earth were reformed, and men were taught the things that are pleasing unto thee, and were saved through wisdom.” Wisdom teaches us all things that are pleasing to The Most High. So now we know that Wisdom is the Holy Spirit. Further more, Wisdom of Solomon 7:7-8 in the apocrypha says – 7 Wherefore I prayed, and understanding was given me: I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. 8 I preferred her before sceptres and thrones, and esteemed riches nothing in comparison of her, we see that Wisdom is referred to as ‘she’. She is our comforter and counsellor – Wisdom of Solomon 8:9 “Therefore I purposed to take her to me to live with me, knowing that she would be a counsellor of good things, and a comfort in cares and grief” Just like any physical family here on earth, who does the teaching and comforting and warns against the wrath of the father when we’re going down the path of destruction?…yep, mother does! So it is spiritually.
John 14:26 calls the Holy Spirit our comforter, but uses ‘he’. The greek word for ‘he’ here is ‘ Akinos’ which means ‘that one’, no gender was ascribed to the Holy Spirit in this text, but was injected by translators. She sits by Gods throne “Give me wisdom, that sitteth by thy throne; and reject me not from among thy children” – Wisdom of Solomon 9:4 and she is privy to the fathers thoughts and is His breath. Just like Eve was pulled out of Adam, so the Holy spirit came out of the mouth of the father. She was sent to teach us about the father, just like the mother teaches her child to love, honor and respect their father. We were saved through Wisdom, and unless the father send her we cannot have access to her. The Most High loves the Holy Spirit so dearly, and that is why He will not forgive anyone who blasphemes her, just like a physical man would defend his wife to the end. Who better to learn from than the most beloved of the father! Seek her earnestly and listen to her words and you will always be in The Most Highs will, she will not steer you wrong.
Till the next time, shalom and blessings.
