“What is blaspheming the Holy Spirit?”

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit—the only unpardonable sin—is a complete and total hardening of the heart, resulting in an unwillingness to yield to the convicting work of the Holy Spirit. One of the major roles of the Holy Spirit is to convict unbelievers of their sins and their need for the Savior. A picture of such hardened hearts is found in the third chapter of Mark, where the teachers of the law refused to believe that the miracles of Jesus were from God and instead attributed them to Satan. God certainly has the power to forgive this sin, but these unbelievers completely and repeatedly rejected their need for forgiveness and reconciliation to God. (*2) 

“Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin.” – Mark 3:29

Who or what the Holy Spirit is? New Testament word pictures reveal Him to be gentle as a dove and mighty as the wind. The Holy Spirit, however, is not merely a supernatural power or an invisible force. He is a person, One whose name is presented in more than 35 different ways in Scripture. These names serve to define His position, His character, and His work. Word of God says once been enlightened by Holy Spirit we be come partakers of the kingdom of God. Once we were partakers of the kingdom of God then we rebel and denying proclaim total war against Holy Spirit than the word of God says there is no repentance if we remove son of God the only means of our salvation: 

“It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen[c] away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.” – Hebrews 6:4-6
