And he abuses this will in an unforgivable way, when he desires already on earth, what can only be granted to him in the spiritual kingdom: the happiness of the seeing into the other world - a desire, which is no longer rooted in his deep cognition, but is entrusted to him by Satan as unjustified desire - which he could also very easily overcome, because he recognizes it as premature, as long as he stays on earth, and that is also mostly overcome by those men, in whom the spirit of God works.

Sin against the spirit.

Whit Monday 7. June 1954. B.D. NR. 5971.

All sins are forgiven you, but not the sin against the spirit. Whatever you also may commit - for the sake of Jesus Christ forgiveness will be yours, also your greatest guilt. But so you sin against the spirit, so you sin against Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for you, so that he could sent his spirit to you. He died for you, so that the connection from you to the father became possible. And this connection only makes it possible, that the spirit of God can come over you. To receive the divine spirit therefore means the testimony of the relationship between God and man, for his spirit is the direct radiation of God. Pouring out of his spirit is flowing in into an opened vessel - it is a proof of the presence of God in the heart of man.

When the talk is now of the "sin against the spirit", so only a conscious turning away - a relapse to the depth against better cognition - a rebelling against him, who works in him - can be understood by that, despite a degree of maturity, which has brought him this cognition. This sin is for exactly that reason unforgivable, because man stands in cognition, because he has already received the favours of the work of redemption and has therefore been lifted up from the depth through Jesus Christ - because he himself had already established the relationship with God, he therefore was no longer weak and the present turning away from God is such an enormous sin, that it cannot get paid off through forgiveness, but entails the fall into the deepest depths, which results in the banishment through eternal times. For Jesus Christ has done his work at this man; it was accepted and again rejected by him. Where the spirit from God once brought enlightenment, illumination of the thinking and secure leading upwards, there a fall to the depth is almost impossible. And nevertheless, the work of Satan, even so rarely, is of success. But man has the power to resist him, and he has the cognition - but he also has free will.

And he abuses this will in an unforgivable way, when he desires already on earth, what can only be granted to him in the spiritual kingdom: the happiness of the seeing into the other world - a desire, which is no longer rooted in his deep cognition, but is entrusted to him by Satan as unjustified desire - which he could also very easily overcome, because he recognizes it as premature, as long as he stays on earth, and that is also mostly overcome by those men, in whom the spirit of God works. But where Satan wins, there also of the greatest sin can be spoken, for it is no weakness, when man does as he wishes, but extreme great obsessive desire for knowledge and abuse of a power, which he possesses as divine spiritual gift and which he is to use in a redeeming meaning, for redeeming activity. What is to be understood as sin against the spirit, only very few men know, and to these it is also clearly recognizable, why this sin cannot get forgiven. But only rarely Satan succeeds, to bring about the downfall of a man, who stands already shortly before the reaching of his goal. For God certainly respects the free will of man, but he stands by him, and he obviously warns him. He tries everything to prevent a renewed defection, because his love infinite.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5971.
