Logic would state that one who doesn't embrace God (in due time) don't recieve his mercy at judgement. The wage of sin is death (Rom.6:23) but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord., The Passover sacrifice that gains victory over death is fulfilled in the Messiah (Heb.2:14/ Jn.14:6/ Jn.6:44/ 1 Cor.5:6-7). The reason we were created was for the pleasure of YHVH (Rev.4:11/ Hos.6:6). Do you give him pleasure? Those who seek (personal pleasure/pride/ self justification/ idols/ lies) to stray from YHVH are embraceing death and not forgivness.
* 1 Jn.1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
* 2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (Teshuvah- Return)
(*Confirmed in Heb.6: http://friendsnchrist.ning.com/video/repentance-1)
Anyone who tells you that you have come to a point where there is no hope for you arent sharing the Gospel and have counted God's promise as slack. (May you know the truth and be armed against these fruits of the accuser). After death comes judgement and the Final ("great white throne") judgement is at the end of the LORD's Day.
Matt.4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (Mk.6:12)
The beginning of wisdom and knowledge is to fear the LORD (Ps.111:10/ Proverbs 1:7; 9:10 ). (Fear matures into Love and an ongoing relationship with YHVH/ 1 jn.4:18).
To Know Better and still transgress is Blasphemy. The Holy Spirit is truth. Some have not love, for the truth. Those who do are drawn to the Passover (blood) sacrifice (Jesus) shall inherit the promise.(Jn.6:44). Yeshua walked Torah in righteousness and overcame death!
vs.30 "presumptuously" H#7311/(3027)
to be high actively to rise or raise (in various applications, literally or figuratively): - bring up, exalt (self), extol, give, go up, haughty, heave (up), (be, lift up on, make on, set up on, too) high (-er, one), hold up, levy, lift (-er) up, (be) lofty, (X a-) loud, mount up, offer (up), + presumptuously, (be) promote (-ion), proud, set up, tall (-er), take (away, off, up), breed worms. (blaspheme)
Death is the penalty.The example that follows is that of a man rebelling against the Shabbat. Shabbat meaning rest. Today we rest and have peace in Yeshua (Salvation of Yah). To reject him (the Atonement) means that you recieve no atonement (forgiveness).
*Knowing Better- 2 Pet.2:21/ Lk.12:47-48/ Jn.9:41/(Gen.3:22-24/ Luke 10:2-16)
Christ condemns Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum
But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. (Matt.10:15/ Mk.6:11/ Lk.10:12)
Reson being: In Sodom unrighteousness was the culture of a heathen people. In Matt.11:23-24 Christ is speaking unto those who had recieved the gospel and yet were found embracing rebellion while they knew better. Knowing is hafe the battle (Eph.6/ Lk.3:6).
UNPARDONABLE (sin always consists of knowing better.)
Matt.12:31-32 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 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 in the world to come.
(Jn.7:12) One who speaks down about Christ not knowing better shall be able to recieve forgivness. In due time all will know better (and Messiah). At the Final (great white throne) judgement, one has need to embrace truth. To know better and still blaspheme the Spirit of truth is Unpardonable. Forgiveness requires confession.(1 Tim.1:12,13,14,15,16,17)
*** Lk.12:10-12 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. (Mark.13:11)
Heb. 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,..
(* Heb.9:12,14. * Heb.10:1,10,11,12,14,17 Christ fulfilled the sacrifice * 1 cor.5:6-8 and there is no other sacrifice. This sacrifice causes God to forget our sins. To reject this sacrifice with understanding (full knowledge of truth * Jn.4:24; 14:6,17; 16:13) is to reject Atonement (YHVH's authority and blueprint for salvation) Thus such a one recieves no forgiveness for their sin, Least at anytime they sahll repent and be saved (unless that is you count the promise of God to be slack and you call him a liar).
..... ☧ Heb.10:27-29 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:(Num.15) Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, (Heb.6) and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
Matt.12:25,26,27,28,29,30 - Your either with or againt the LORD.
Matt.10:34 God is a consuming fire. The Sword of Truth is the Holy Spirit and it cuts both ways! If you embrace the truth you will find its a weapon that no one can stand against. If you dont embrace truth (God's will) it will take you out. The truth will stand when the earth is on fire. The truth shall be as torment to those who don't embrace it at judgement time. those who abide in truth feed their Spirit with the Word.
Eph.4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
1 Thess.5:19 Quench not the Spirit. (capital s means Holy Spirit)
(quench - A prolonged form of an apparently primary verb; to extinguish (literally or figuratively): - /to make/ go out, quench.)
And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?
(weary- A primitive root; to tire; (figuratively) to be (or make) disgusted: - faint, grieve, lothe, (be, make) weary (selves).
Thus, Christ became our Passover
(1Cor.5:6-8/ Heb.2:14/ 1 Tim.2:6/ Jn.10:17/ Rom.5:8 Ps.22
and Sabbath /meaning rest/ (Heb.4:8-10 / Jer.6:16/ Matt. 11:29-30 (Is.63:14) Jn.15:13 / Matt.11:28 / 1 Jn. 2:1)
If we don't embrace The LORD we shouldn't exspect Him to embrace us. Upon repentance/confession unto YHVH sin is washed away and doesn't exsist. To bring it back up is to doubt the promises of God. (Is.43:25/ Heb.8:12; 10:17/ 1 Jn.1:9/ 2 Pet. 3:9/ Ps.51 !)
