A deeper understanding of the sin against the Holy Ghost

TOPICS: Sin of limiting God – confining God to an image with form is limiting God – Holy Spirit breaks down forms that limit you – you are a co-creator – you are more than forms you create, and so is God – limiting yourself is limiting God – you grow by experimenting – sin is “missing the mark” – building idolatrous image is prison with no escape – you will be burdened by it until you can no longer move – most Christian churches commit a sin against the Holy Ghost –

Question from Kim: Jesus, I know you have talked about this in another answer, but I would like to ask about the deeper meaning behind the concept of the sin against the Holy Ghost, as recorded in Matthew, Chapter 12:

31 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.
32 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.

Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:

The simplest explanation for the concept of the sin against the Holy Ghost is to say that is the sin of limiting God.

It is no coincidence that the first of the Ten Commandments tells you to have no other gods before God and that the second commandment tells you not to take any graven image. What these two commandments basically say is that you should not worship a false god and that any image of god in this world is an idol. Obviously, if you worship an idol, you are worshiping a false god.

The deeper meaning behind these commandments is that God is beyond all form, and therefore no image in the world of form can give an accurate representation of God. If you are worshiping an image, no matter how beautiful it might be, you are not worshiping the true God who is beyond all form. If you seek to confine God to a particular image, you are limiting God.

The most important function of the Holy Spirit is to make sure that God’s creation is always growing and that no form ever becomes permanent. In Hindu mythology, the Holy Spirit corresponds to the God Shiva, who is called the destroyer. In reality, this means that the Holy Spirit/Shiva is the destroyer of form and structure that limits God and prevents lifestreams from growing.

As I explain throughout this website, your lifestream was designed to be a co-creator with God. As such you have the capacity to create form. Although anything you create is created with God’s energy, God can never be confined to its creation and you, as a co-creator, can never be confined to your creation. God is always more than the entire world of form, which is its creation, and you are always more than your creation.

Because of free will, it is possible that a lifestream can lose its sense of identity as a spiritual being, as a co-creator with God. It can fall into a lower state of consciousness, in which it begins to identify itself either with the world of form or with its own creation. Thereby, you are using your free will to limit God and to limit yourself. Since you are an individualization of God, limiting yourself is limiting God.

When the Holy Spirit comes to you and encourages you to move beyond what you have created, or beyond your current station in the world of form, you can use your free will to resist the Holy Ghost. Because all spiritual beings bow to the free will of human beings, the Holy Spirit will respect your choice. But in rejecting the Holy Spirit you are committing the sin against that Spirit by refusing to let the Spirit blow where it listeth.

Kim: Is it really true that the sin against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, neither here on earth or in heaven? That sounds contrary to what you say that anything done with Gods energy can be purified, which I would assume means that it can be forgiven?

Jesus: You are right that anything done with God’s energy can be undone. Once the consequences of a sin is undone, that sin is forgiven, meaning that is it is erased from the consciousness of God. This relates to the quote,

“Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more” (Jeremiah 31:34).

However, there is a subtle distinction here. Imagine that you are driving down the road on the way to work and another car almost hits you. You become angry and yell at the other driver. After you calm down, you realize that you just misqualified some of God’s energy, and thereby you committed a sin. You feel profoundly sorry for having made this mistake, you ask God for forgiveness and you use the Violet Flame to consume the misqualified energy. Thereby, your sin is forgiven and erased. As you are driving home from work later in the day, the same thing happens and you once again become angry. After you calm down, you go through the same ritual of asking for forgiveness and cleaning up the misqualified energy. Your sin is once again forgiven and erased, and this can go on for an entire lifetime in which you commit the same sin many times only to have it forgiven and erased. Your sin is forgiven because you do not build the image that you are an angry person. You simply feel a temporary anger, and then it is gone.

The reason for this forgiveness is that when God gave you free will, he realized that it was inevitable that you would make certain mistakes. This is simply part of life, because life is the growth process whereby you learn through your experiments with God’s energy. Some experiments turn out well and some turn out not so well. The true meaning of sin is “missing the mark.” Obviously, God doesn’t want you to be held back by the failed experiments. He wants you to move on, and therefore he has created a way for you to be freed from the consequences, the sin, of your mistakes.

Obviously, God would like you to learn from your mistakes so that you do not keep repeating them. Yet even if you do keep repeating the same mistakes, God will still forgive you for those sins, until you finally get tired of playing that game.

The sin against the Holy Ghost is a different class of sin. As I said, it is the sin of limiting God and limiting yourself as an individualization of God. The problem with this type of sin is that once you create an idol and begin to worship it as a god, you have put yourself in a box that has no way out. It has no way out because you think that this is the way God is or this is the way you are. You have created an absolute limitation from which there is no escape until you change your world view and transcend your idol.

It is one thing to be in a prison and know that there is something outside, because then you long to be free. Yet if you have created a prison and think there is nothing outside or no way to get outside, then how could you possibly move beyond that impasse?

Therefore, the sin against the Holy Ghost cannot simply be forgiven as other sins. If it was, you could keep yourself in that prison forever. Therefore, the sin against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven as other sins. The result is that you become gradually more weighted down by the misqualified energy, until you can no longer move. Hopefully, as you become increasingly paralyzed by the weight of your sin, you will finally begin to think that there has got to be a better way to live. This then will open your mind to the possibility that you might need to break down your idol, to go outside of your mental box, and gain a higher understanding of God and of yourself as a son or daughter of God.

Do you see my point? God created you as a co-creator, and he has given you free will. So he allows you to create anything you want. Yet the Law of Free will also states that you cannot remain the same; you have to move on and grow. This is a safety valve, making sure that if you create something imperfect, you will not be trapped in that state of limitation forever.

The very function of the Holy Spirit is to help you grow and become more of who you are in God. The sin against the Holy Ghost is a sin that prevents you from growing by keeping you trapped in a limited sense of identity. You think there is no way to grow and move beyond your current circumstances. So if God was to forgive that sin, you would simply remain in this state of non-growth. Therefore, God cannot forgive that sin until you forsake the sin and tear down your idols. God will not forgive the sin against the Holy Ghost until you transcend the state of consciousness that causes you to commit that sin.

I realize that the Bible makes it seem as if that sin can never be forgiven. Yet I must tell you that this is an inaccurate recording of my original words. I did not say what is stated in the scriptures. My original words stated that the sin against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven until it is transcended, forsaken and left behind permanently. This can only happen by manifesting Christ consciousness, whereby you accept yourself as an individualization of God.

However, when you do leave behind the dualistic state of consciousness, God will forgive your sins. Thereby, you can transmute the misqualified energy and have the sins erased.

Kim: In light of what you said about the creation of a false God, I would assume that a false image of God, or even a false image of you as an idol instead of an example to follow, is committing the sin against the Holy Ghost. Is that right?

Jesus: That is perfectly correct.

Kim: So what you are saying here is that the Christian churches who hold on to an idolatrous image of you as the only Son of God are committing the sin against the Holy Ghost?

Jesus: Unfortunately, that is also correct. Most Christian churches, and thereby most members of those churches, are in actuality committing the sin against the Holy Ghost by holding on to a false image of Jesus Christ, even a false image of God. This is indeed one of the greatest tragedies associated with my mission. I must tell you honestly that there are times when I contemplate this tragedy and my heart feels so heavy that I am moved to tears. You will also see from Mother Mary’s discourse, that this sin is the major reason some of her statues around the world shed tears.

Obviously, I am an ascended being, and I do not allow myself to indulge in such feelings for an extended period of time. Yet I can tell you that there is nothing that would give me greater joy than to see all Christians overcome this unfortunate idolatry of me, so that they can stop committing the sin against the Holy Ghost, be forgiven of that sin and put behind them the consciousness that causes that sin of idolatry.

Truly, any person who opens his or her mind to the truth about my mission will feel the winds of the Holy Spirit flow through them and consume their illusions and the sins that spring from those illusions. They will feel the perfect love that will consume all their fears, and they will feel spiritually reborn because they will be spiritually reborn.
