It also shows the cost of pridefully rejecting the Holy Spirit. Some think murder is the unpardonable sin, some think it’s suicide, but the Bible instructs that there is only one sin that God cannot forgive and that is
Matthew 12:31 – And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. –
A person knows when the Spirit speaks to them but each person has free will and can tell the Spirit to get lost and it will because God does not force us to love him because to do so would make it all a lie. But there’s another verse – one that begins the prologue of Malevolent Tide and it goes:
…for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.
1 Chronicles 28:9
