The Bible says, “Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.” Psalm 19:13
It’s a prayer if we sincerely want to seek God, and maintain through faith a relationship with Him.
Presumptuous sin is to wilfully commit transgression against the manifest light and knowledge of the truth according to God’s word. Presumptuous sins lead to the great transgression.The great transgression is the unpardonable sin, which is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
“22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
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.” Matthew 12:22-32
The Pharisees knew it was the power of God through Jesus Christ that delivered the demon possessed person. It was undeniably clear to them by The Holy Spirit. But they called it something evil rather than what it actually was. The goodness of God. Hence, Jesus response concerning the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
Presumptuous sins lead to blasphemy against the Holy Spirit by presuming to do something wrong as though it’s right, which is known to be contrary to God’s word despite the Holy Spirit’s convictions. Going against The clear convictions of the Holy Spirit in accordance to God’s word is to end up calling the goodness of God evil, and evil good. To begin a process to grieve away the Holy Spirit.
Due to a willingness to go outside of faith in God’s word, when His word is even known to be true. For faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God. And whatever is without faith is a sin. Romans 10:17 and Romans 14:23.
The individual presumes to be right irrespective of knowing that they are wrong according to the word of God. And convinces him or herself that they are living by faith with a self assurance, and false validation from others who are not in the faith.
Suppositions, (ideas) against the word are placed above the authority of Scripture. While,
speculations, impulse and experience are used to give explanations as a means to rationalize these ideas.
God’s love is then denied for a love of darkness through wilful disobedience. To the point of calling the light of God’s love evil, and darkness good. Unrepentantly, clinging unto sin to the very end. To die in sin. Regardless of the Holy Spirit’s loving promptings. Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit to not let go of sin. Where there can be no pardon for their sins.
As it is written, we must not only examine if we be in the faith or not, but to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. Lest we be reprobates, lawless transgressors without faith in God. And in this, Let God be true, but every man a liar that faith may have its effect to produce good works to prove those who are faithful.
