5. Lord Jesus' Warning Now Enforced!



"The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit consists of the willful rejection and slandering of the witness of the Spirit with regard to the grace of God in Christ. It includes attributing this witness to Satan, after having been convicted of its truth. It presupposes an honest revelation of this grace, via the Word of God by the Holy Spirit, which cannot be honestly or rationally denied. The convicted sinner rejects the truth even though this rejection contradicts the illumination and verdict of his mind (his conscience). In doing so, the sinner attributes what he knows to be the work of God's Spirit to the devil. The sinner thereby blasphemes God and His Word (Numbers 15:30-31)," tramples the Son of God underfoot...and insults the Spirit of Grace" (Hebrews 10:29)."

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.

Luke 12:10

Verily I say unto you, all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men,
And blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.

Mark 3:28-29

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.

Matthew 12:31-32


"The gravest of all sins is blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. One may speak even against Jesus Christ in ignorance and, upon repentance, be forgiven, but knowingly to sin against the Holy Ghost by denying its influence after having received it is unpardonable (Matt. 12:31-32; Jacob 7:19; Alma 39:6), and the consequences are inescapable. Such denial dooms the perpetrator to the hell of the second spiritual death (TPJS, p. 361). This extreme judgment comes because the person sins knowingly against the light, thereby severing himself from the redeeming grace of Christ."

"The sin or blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is mentioned in Matthew 12:22-32; Mark 3:22-30; Luke 12:10 (cf. 11:14-23); and Christ everywhere declares that it shall not be pardoned. In what does it consist? If we examine all the passages alluded to, there can be little doubt as to the reply... . He shows them that it is by"The Spirit of God"that He casts out devils, and then He concludes: "Therefore I say to you: Every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy of the Spirit shall not be forgiven. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but he that shall speak against the Holy Ghost, it shall not he forgiven him, neither in this world, nor in the world to come." So, to sin against the Holy Ghost is to confound Him with the spirit of evil, it is to deny, from pure malice, the Divine character of works manifestly Divine... . But the Fathers of the Church, commenting on the Gospel texts we are treating of, did not confine themselves to the meaning given above. Whether it be that they wished to group together all objectively analogous cases, or whether they hesitated and wavered when confronted with this point of doctrine, which St. Augustine declares (Serm. ii de verbis Domini, c. v) one of the most difficult in Scripture."

"25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have told unto you...
(John 14:25-6)

Jesus now summarizes all that He has been saying in this section. Referring to the many things which He has taught them while He has been present with them in the flesh, He tell the disciples that the Comforter not only is going to remind them of these things, but also will go to teach them all things necessary to their understanding and happiness. The Comforter will recall to their minds Jesus' teachings, will enable them to understand truly and completely, and will develop and expand them into new and wonderful truths."The Randall House Bible Commentary



"Jesus does not reveal the Holy Spirit fully, until he himself has been glorified through his Death and Resurrection... Only when the hour has arrived for his glorification does Jesus promise the coming of the Holy Spirit, since his Death and Resurrection will fulfill the promise made to the fathers. The Spirit of truth, the other Paraclete, will be given by the Father in the answer to Jesus' prayer."

"The Mysteries of the Kingdom:
Yet the 'Gospel of Judas', like the New Testament gospels, shows that Jesus' teaching is not limited to words; he also teaches through what he does. What he reveals is not complete when he finishes speaking — but only when he dies. His death demonstrates that the death of the body is not the end of life, but only a step into the infinite.

Reason I am stunned:
Jesus Christ is the only incarnation who has demonstrated and given evidence through His crucifixion and resurrection that"The death of the body is not the end of life, but only a step into the infinite." Shri Mataji is absolutely right when She heaped this praise on Jesus: "He was the Holiest of the Holy. You accept that position."

And for more than 30 years She has glorified Jesus Christ, explained in detail His Good News of the Kingdom of God, and openly declared the commencement of the promised Resurrection that leads to the eternal afterlife in the Spirit World—month after month, year after year, decade after decade."

"But She—the Spirit, the Paraclete...—will teach you everything."- Danny Mahar

"Where then do we go for direct textual evidence that the Holy Spirit was, in the origins of Christianity, considered feminine? We go to the existing Greek minuscules copied in the early part of the last millennium to find only circumstantial evidence. Likewise, as we go to the earlier copied Greek uncials, the Byzantine copies, the eastern Syriac Peshitta, and the Old Latin we find some peripheral corroboration. Then when we go to the earlier copied Old Syriac that predates the Peshitta we find a pearl of great price. In the most ancient of the rare Old Syriac copies, the Siniatic Palimpsest, from the 4th or 5th century, found in the Covenant of St. Catherine in the Sinia by Mrs. Anes Lewis and transcribed by Syriac Professor R.L. Bensly of Cambridge University in 1892, the words of Jesus in John 14:26 read:

Aramaic Made EZ, Danny Mahar
But She—the Spirit, the Paraclete whom He will send to you, my Father, in my name—She will teach you everything; She will remind you of that which I have told you.

(Translation by Danny Mahar, author of Aramaic Made EZ)

In both the Hebrew and Aramaic language the word spirit is in the feminine gender but in the Greek language it is neuter. It is the Greek neuter word, pnuema, that was employed by the ancient Septuagint translators of the Hebrew Old Testament when they translated the feminine ruach into Greek. The authors who wrote in Greek were limited in expressing the Holy Spirit in the feminine by the constraints of the language...

This concept of the feminine gender of the Holy Spirit is not new or original. The early church had this belief and within the last several decades it has been considered at large with acceptance by individuals of faith in all areas. It may be that this writing is a unique synergism in understandings and that there are some new considerations within what is written here to add to the accumulating evidence. Whatever the case may be there is much more that is written and to be written that patterns the feminine gender of the Holy Spirit through the breadth of scripture...

I offer this presentation so that the revelatory script of the knowing playwright and the intuitions of the wise director may be more fully understood and, in the end, be joined harmoniously together within our souls and within our family to bring to pass the eternal plan of salvation for all humankind through the cross of Christ."

The Feminine Gender of the Holy Spirit
On the Orthodox Revision of the Gender of the Holy Spirit
A Journey Unto Revelation's End, by Steve Santini

Note: "There are some Christian groups who teach that the Holy Spirit is feminine, or has feminine aspects. Most are based on the genders of the verbs in the original Bible languages where the Holy Spirit is the subject. In Hebrew the word for spirit (ruach) is feminine. In Greek the word (pneuma) is neuter, and in Aramaic, the language which is generally considered to have been spoken by Jesus, the word is feminine. This is not thought by most linguists to have significance for the gender of the person given that name. There are biblical cases where the pronoun used for the Holy Spirit is masculine, in contradiction of the gender of the word for spirit (John 16:13). The Syriac language, which was in common use around 300AD, is derived from Aramaic. In documents produced in Syriac by the early Miaphysite church (which later became the Syrian Orthodox Church) the feminine gender of the word for spirit gave rise to a theology in which the Holy Spirit was considered feminine."— Wikipedia



Our Lord explained the coming presence of the parakletos (paraklete, comforter, helper, advocate)

In the first portion of the Gospel of John, the holy spirit is spoken of as something descending from heaven to remain upon Jesus (John 1.32-33), as a medium into (or through) which one must be born (John 3.5), as an enablement for Christ to speak the words of God (John 3.34), as a medium through which one may worship the Father (John 4.23), as the essential nature of God (John 4.24), as a life giver (John 6.63), and as something to be received by the disciples (John 7.39).

It is clear from these examples that the essential character and functionality of God's spirit had not changed. However, the claim that John 7.39 makes seems to contradict everything we have discovered by saying "that the spirit was not yet given."

"But this he spoke of the spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive; for the spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified." (John 7.39)

Obviously, the spirit had been given in OT times, to Jesus, and to the disciples who were able to go out performing miracles and healing people. Nonetheless, there must be some essential difference between the spirit that we have described up to this point in our inquiry and that, which is described in detail in chapters 14, 15, and 16 of John in order to warrant the phrase"The spirit was not yet given."

Our Lord explained the coming presence of the parakletos (paraklete, comforter, helper, advocate). The chain of events would be {1} the disciple demonstrates love for Jesus by keeping his commandments (John 14.15) {2} Jesus will ask the Father to send the paraklete (John 14.16; 15.26; 16.7) {3} the paraklete will be sent in Jesus' name to abide in the believer forever (John 14.16, 26). The paraklete is"The spirit of truth" (John 14.17), which will teach the disciples all things and bring to their remembrance all that Jesus has said (John 14.26), testify about Jesus (John 15.26), be more advantageous to the saint than the presence of Christ on earth (John 16.7), convict the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16.8- 11), guide them into all truth (John 16.13), and disclose Christ to the disciple (John 16.14-15)."

Primary function of the Comforter is to make men holy

"Jesus solemnly assures the disciples that they will, in the future, perform even greater miracles than He. By this He means to say that through the power of the Holy Spirit, they will bring about the greatest miracle of all—the salvation of lost souls. He promises them that whatever they ask for, in connection with their ministry of bringing the miracle of salvation to lost men, will be granted them.

The theme of this section is reassurance and encouragement. Jesus gives the disciples three basic reasons they should cease being troubled in their spirits. First, He tells them that, although He is going away, He will return for them so that they may ultimately join Him where He is going (vv. 1-3). Second, He tells them that, though He is going away, He will be the only means by which men may come to God and go to Heaven (vv. 4-11). Third, He tells them that, though He is going away, their ministries are not finished. In fact, the best is still ahead. They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation (vv. 12-14)."...

25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have told unto you.

Jesus now summarizes all that He has been saying in this section. Referring to the many things which He has taught them while He has been present with them in the flesh, He tell the disciples that the Comforter not only is going to remind them of these things, but also will go to teach them all things necessary to their understanding and happiness. The Comforter will recall to their minds Jesus' teachings, will enable them to understand truly and completely, and will develop and expand them into new and wonderful truths.

Jesus has referred to the coming Comforter as the Spirit of Truth (v. 17)...[whose] primary function is the work of making men holy. This is the work we call sanctification.

In v. 16 Jesus has said that the Comforter is going to be provided to the disciples by the Father on the basis of His (Jesus') prayer that He should do so. Now He says that the Father is going to send the Comforter in His (Christ's) name. These statements are essentially identical and imply a joint action involving both Father and Son."

Advocate, (Gr. parakletos), one who pleads another's cause, who helps another by defending or comforting him. It is a name given by Christ three times to the Holy Ghost (John 14:16; 15:26; 16:7, where the Greek word is rendered"Comforter," q.v.).
Comforter, the designation of the Holy Ghost (John 14:16, 26; 15:26; 16:7; R.V. marg.," or Advocate, or Helper; Gr. paracletos"). The same Greek word thus rendered is translated"Advocate"In 1 John 2:1 as applicable to the Comforter to be sent by Christ. It means properly"one who is summoned to the side of another"to help him in a court of justice by defending him," one who is summoned to plead a cause."

"For us, in between Jesus Christ and His destroying Incarnation of Mahavishnu called as Kalki there is a time given to human beings to rectify themselves, for them to enter into the Kingdom of God, which in the Bible is called as Last Judgment."

Christ who is the embodiment of forgiveness—forgiveness of Christ is nothing but is the power of sustenance within Him—if He explodes the whole forgiveness can come on Earth as a big disaster if we are not able to understand the value of His forgiveness. He has said very clearly that "anything against me will be tolerated but a word against Holy Ghost won't be tolerated." He has clearly said it and now you have to understand that the Holy Ghost is the Adi Shakti."

"The subject of 'Shri Kundalini Shakti and Shri Jesus Christ' is very attractive and interesting. It is altogether a new subject for the common people because nobody has at any time, before, attempted to establish any connection between Jesus Christ and Shri Kundalini Shakti.

On the Virata tree of religion saints of various kinds bloomed as flowers in many countries and languages. It is only the Virata who can know the relation inter-se amongst these beautiful flowers. Wherever they went, these flowers spread the sweet fragrance of religion. But even the people surrounding these saints could not grasp the significance of that fragrance. It is therefore futile to expect the common people to understand the relation inter-se between a saint and the Adi-Shakti, the primordial Mother.

You would be able to experience or understand my viewpoint if you could attain the plane from which I am talking to you, because at present, you do not have the necessary equipment to comprehend whether or not what I am telling you is the truth. In other words, you are not yet equipped to understand what the truth is."

"Christ has said very clearly in the second chapter of Matthew 2nd verse 'You'll be calling me Christ! Christ! I won't recognize you.' That's very true. It is not a question of who recognises Him, but He should recognize you because the advent of Christ is going to be absolutely terrible. He is not going to talk to you, convince you or comfort you or give you any council as I am trying my level best, but He will just come for the Last Sorting out because I declare that the Last Judgment has started. The Last Judgment takes place only through Kundalini awakening. There is no other way out. God is going to do it through living process."

"These are the times described in the Holy Bible as the Last Judgment and in the Koran as Qiyamah, the Resurrection Time. Astrologically it is also called the Age of Aquarius, the time of rebirth and of great spiritual development on the Earth."

"And in this great happening of the Last Judgment and the Resurrection Time, one need not, and should not, believe blindfolded in whatever is said about ascent or salvation, but should treat it like a hypothesis, and observe the facts with an open mind like a scientist."

"This is the Last Judgment. Either you will go to heaven or you will go to hell. It's already working out like that. So let's see. Where are you?

"So in this Last Judgment a new race, new race of great people is created. It is your own. It is your own power. Only to know how glorious you are, how great you are. Absolutely free because you get that superior intelligence. In the light of Spirit you know what is constructive for you. You know absolute knowledge."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"So, as it is, you are already marked, you have already been chosen by Christ in his Last Judgment, and you are there. But still one should know that there is also the possibility that you are hypocrites, that you are playing with only words. Could be that we still have to cleanse ourselves, so just put your mind into yourself, and just see for yourself that where have I gone wrong."

"People do not know what time has come. It is the last chance. You won't get any more chance. In Bible it has been described as the Last Judgment. Your Last Judgment is in Sahaja Yoga and how it will be done can be judged by yourself."

"This is the Last Judgment. Let us see what happens. Whatever people come is alright for me. Even if they do not come, it's still alright. Remember, God will not bow before you."

"I am here to work for you day and night. You know that I work very hard for you. I spare no efforts, to help you, and do everything that is possible to make you all right; to make you pass this examination of Last Judgment; but you have to cooperate with me, and you have to go headlong about it, and devote most of your time for Sahaja Yoga and for imbibing all that is great and noble."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"This is the greatest of the greatest things which can happen to anyone that you know. Also you know, this is the greatest happening, which was prophesied long time back as the Last Judgment. You know that this is the way, you are going to be judged. So we have to work very hard. We have to work. It is effortlessly given to you, alright. But to maintain it, keep it up to go high, we have to religiously work it out."

The Spirit-Paraclete
"And that your Last Judgment is also now. Only through Kundalini awakening God is going to judge you. How is he going to judge you otherwise? You think of somebody now, a person comes in now. Here is somebody sitting to judge you. How? By how many hair-dressers you have been to? Or how many suits you have stitched for Christmas? Or what presents you have bought or how many cards you have sent? and to how many people you have sent some other things which may not be very palatable. That's not the way."

The Spirit-Paraclete
"This is the most important time because Sahaja Yoga is the Last Judgment. It is fantastic to have this but that's a fact and is the truth. Though you can understand, that Mother's love makes it very easy for you to get through your realization and that the whole story of the Last Judgment looks such as horrifying experience has been made very beautiful and very tender and delicate and does not disturb you. But this is the Last Judgment I tell you, and you all are going to be judged through Sahaja Yoga, whether, you can enter into the kingdom of God or not."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"The Last Judgment has started. We are facing the Last Judgment today. We are not aware of it. And all the satanic forces have come out like the wolves in sheep's clothes. And they are trying to attract you and you do not judge them. You only sit down and judge the Reality. It has started, it is a fact. It has started."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"That Krishna has said once you get your realisation your problems are solved, physical, emotional, mental, all problems are solved and you become absolutely relaxed. That goes without saying. But I'm not here to sort of cure people and go to hospitals. Nothing of the kind. It's just who are the seekers will be blessed because this is the reward of this Last Judgment."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"But, logically, you must understand. Where should we reach? What should happen to us? As seekers, what are we expecting? This is a very, very precarious and important time is more to say. The Last Judgment has started. That has started. That's how you are all here and you are seeking. The way it will judge, is the Kundalini has to rise. Your have to become self realized. Then you start feeling your centers on your fingers."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"Sahaja Yoga is for the emancipation of the whole world, at every level. Once we have people of a certain number in Sahaja Yoga, it will start triggering understanding of real righteousness, religiousness and our love for God, and enlightened faith in God. This is how the Resurrection time is going to be worked out. This is the Last Judgment time, and everyone can judge him or herself through the light of the Spirit."

The Spirit-Paraclete
"If we have to change this world, and if we have to save our people from complete destruction, we have to take to wisdom, and that is only possible when the brain is enlightened by Kundalini. This is what is very important today, when we see that this world is on the verge of destruction. Of course, the Creator himself is very anxious to save us and that is why he has in these modern times which are called Kali Yuga, made the all-pervading power activated.

So, now a new age has started which is called the Age of Aquarius. Kumbha meaning the pitcher carrier of spiritual holy water that is the work of Kundalini. The activity of the Kundalini is like the sap of the tree that rises and nourishes all parts of the tree and does not get stuck at one flower (centre). Moreover these are special times. This is the resurrection time. The Last Judgment is done by the Kundalini. On the fingertips one can feel oneself and can judge oneself."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"Of course, this is also the age of science and technology in which human beings have progressed beyond the stage of blind faith. And in this great happening of the Last Judgment and the Resurrection Time, one need not, and should not, believe blindfolded in whatever is said about ascent or salvation, but should treat it like a hypothesis, and observe the facts with an open mind like a, scientist. Of course, if a hypothesis is proved, then any honest, scientifically minded modern person has to accept it."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"Now this is the Last Judgment and those who miss will miss in any case. Christ has said, 'You will be calling Me Christ, Christ, but I will not recognize you.' So understand you have to become the Spirit as Christ has said, 'You are to be born again.' You may have faith in me or not; doesn't matter. You must have faith in yourself to begin with."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"But in a way is good because this is Last Judgment. If by marriage, by temptations, by wrong doings, by conditionings if you have to go out, you have to go out.

I must tell you that also there's very little place in the Kingdom of God. Unless and until you prove to be good Sahaja Yogis, there is no place for you, for mediocre there is no place. You have to serious, deep, seeking, dedicated Sahaja Yogis otherwise you have no place."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"So this is the Last Judgment and you will be judged for everything that you do for Sahaja Yoga. One has to be very careful as to how you behave, what is your attitude is and how you should change."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





The Spirit-Paraclete
"If you want to miss your own ascent, you can go ahead, you can chose, the choice is yours, this is the Last Judgment. And with this Last Judgment, you have to judge yourself. In the Koran it is very clearly said at the time of Resurrection, your hands will 'speak' and will give witness against you. There is a very big chapter on Resurrection, but the fundamentalists don't want to look at it. They believe their religion is the best. But what would it has done to anyone? It is so much misinterpreted, so much misinterpreted. Now the time has come, this is a special time which is the time of Resurrection, this is the Qiyamah. It is the special time of Last Judgment where you have to judge yourself."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"Today, Sahaja Yoga has reached the state of Mahayoga, which is en- masse evolution manifested through it. It is this day's Yuga Dharma. It is the way the Last Judgment is taking place. Announce it to all the seekers of truth, to all the nations of the world, so that nobody misses the blessings of the Divine to achieve their meaning, their absolute, their spirit."

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi




"The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now."

"The Greek word 'blasphemeo' GSN 987 is used in the gospel accounts of Mark and Luke. *The Greek word 'blasphemia' GSN 988 is used in the gospel of Matthew. According to the definitions, the word 'blasphemy' means; to injure the work of God's Holy Spirit, by speaking evil of something Holy and pure from God and falsely accusing the work of the Holy Spirit, to be evil or Satanic. Blasphemy then is a sin or crime against God, causing injury to Him or His Spirit by false accusations. The spirit behind these types of accusations is from the accuser himself, the devil, the chief adversary of God."

M. Mary C. Becker, Literal Translation with Strong's Numbers



"Blasphemy (Greek blaptein," to injure", and pheme," reputation") signifies etymologically gross irreverence towards any person or thing worthy of exalted esteem... MEANING

While etymologically blasphemy may denote the derogation of the honour due to a creature as well as of that belonging to God, in its strict acceptation it is used only in the latter sense. Hence it has been defined by Suarez as"Any word of malediction, reproach, or contumely pronounced against God: (De Relig., tract. iii, lib. I, cap. iv, n. 1). It is to be noted that according to the definition (1) blasphemy is set down as a word, for ordinarily it is expressed in speech, though it may be committed in thought or in act. Being primarily a sin of the tongue, it will be seen to be opposed directly to the religious act of praising God. (2) It is said to be against God, though this may be only mediately, as when the contumelious word is spoken of the saints or of sacred things, because of the relationship they sustain to God and His service."

www.newadvent.org/



"Blasphemy against the Son may be a temporary sin, for the one who commits it may be subsequently convinced of his error by the testimony of the Holy Spirit and become a believer (I Tim. 1:13). But blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is in its nature an eternal sin, for if one rejects the evidence given by the Holy Spirit and ascribes it to Satan, he rejects the only evidence upon which faith can be based; and without faith there is no forgiveness."

"Jesus does not reveal the Holy Spirit fully, until he himself has been glorified through his Death and Resurrection... . Only when the hour has arrived for his glorification does Jesus promise the coming of the Holy Spirit, since his Death and Resurrection will fulfill the promise made to the fathers.

"Every religion has its projected 'end-time.' For Jews, it is the tikkun; for Gnostics, the apocatastasis; for Zoroastrians, the Fravarti; for Christians, it is the Parousia. Time was, time is, time shall be no more. The millennial spirit is running strongly at this time, only ten years before the new millennium which is alternatively viewed as the New Age of Aquarius or else as Armageddon.

The return of the Holy Spirit as the Risen Christ has been long expected in Christian eschatology. However, whether the presence winging its way across our skies is to be that of doves or of missile-headed jets has been doubtful. As we approach the end of the second millennium after Christ, aficionados of both peace and destruction seem to reign supreme. As ever at such times, the mere threat of the last days has sent the faithful to the Book of the Apocalypse and everyone else to the consultation of divinatory means, including the perhaps aptly named Nostradamus, whose prophecies expire at 1999. Sophia, so familiarly imaged by the dove of peace, might seem ill at ease in this millennial scenario, yet she draws upon her aspect of Black Goddess to deliver warnings and to bring the kenosis of war and conflict to those with no peace in their hearts."

"It's supremely important to realize that Jesus Christ was a revolutionary; attempting to neutralize the power hungry rabbis who were rooted in the letter of the law instead of the Spirit (i.e. observing rituals for the purpose of impressing and entertaining each other, instead of practicing a silent inward devotion without an ulterior motive or even a wish for the betterment of their worldly circumstance). We notice how often he would call them hypocrites, because they preached religious ideals yet exemplified selfish greed, pious superiority, and mutual exclusivity. This has gradually re-developed today, this time within the Christian Church and its various denominations. (Most sects within the other major religions are also plagued with these kinds of attitudes.)"

"The best one word description of the Holy Ghost is found in Jn.14:16,26,15:26, and 16:7. Here the Savior uses the Greek word"Parakletos"Which means advocate, spokesman, intercessor, representative, friend, and comforter. In other words, the function of the Holy Ghost is to be God's representative to us in God's absence (Acts 5:1-4) as well as Christ's (Jn.16:7)... . gives us comfort, God's will for our lives, and testifies to us of the truthfulness of the Gospel and to the reality of Christ's atonement for our sins."

"Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost

The most fateful words ever spoken by Jesus had to do with the fearful possibility of committing the unpardonable sin. He said," 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."Matthew 12:31.

No one can misconstrue the clear message of these verses. There is a sin unto death. A man or woman may pass over a line which separates God's mercy and His wrath and not be able to come back. These chilling words of our Lord stand in stark contrast to His usually benevolent utterances. For this reason, if for no other, they should be examined with great care.

What is this sin which Heaven regards with such abhorrence and loathing? Why will God deal so severely with those who are guilty of this sin? To the human mind a great number of depraved and cruel acts might fall into such a category but which one of them would God count so heinous and horrible that it could never be forgiven?"

"Why then in verse 29 does Jesus seem to exclude one sin and one blasphemy from this promise: the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? I think the reason is that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit puts you beyond repentance and therefore beyond forgiveness. Verse 29 is not an exception to verse 28. Jesus is not saying, All blasphemies that you repent of will be forgiven except blasphemy against the Spirit. He is saying, all blasphemies that you repent of will be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven because it puts you beyond repentance—you won't be able to repent of it. If a sin makes it impossible for you to repent, then that is an unforgivable sin, because forgiveness is promised only to those sins from which we genuinely repent (cf. 4:12).

But why does this one particular sin, this one blasphemy, make it impossible to repent and be forgiven? What about blasphemy against the Son of God, or God the Father or angels or scripture, or the church? Why do these not put us beyond repentance and forgiveness? Why only blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? I think it's because of the unique and decisive role the Holy Spirit plays in our salvation. If we look to God the Father and then turn from his glory to embrace sin that is bad. If we look to his Son Jesus Christ whom he sent into the world and then turn away from his glory to embrace sin, that is doubly bad. But in either case there is hope. The Father has planned redemption, the Son has accomplished redemption. This wonderful redemption is outside ourselves and available to us if we repent of our sin and turn back to Christ in faith. But it is the unique and special role of the Holy Spirit to apply the Father's plan and the Son's accomplishment of it to our hearts. It is the Spirit's work to open our eyes, to grant repentance and to make us beneficiaries of all that the Father has planned and all that Christ has done for us. If we blaspheme and reject the Father and the Son there is still hope, for the Spirit may yet work within us to humble us and bring us to repentance. But if behind the Father and the Son we see and taste the power of the Holy Spirit and reject his work as no more precious than the work of Satan, we shut ourselves off from the only one who could ever bring us to repentance. And so we shut ourselves off from forgiveness.

Let's take one more step before we define the unforgivable sin. Some people say that the unpardonable sin is continual rejection of the Holy Spirit until death. And thus only death puts a person beyond forgiveness. I think that is wrong for two reasons. One is that in Matthew 12:32 Jesus says," Whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven either in this age or the age to come."If the possibility of forgiveness were taken away only after death then Jesus would not have said that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is unforgivable in this age as well as the one to come. Another reason is 1 John 5:16 teaches that there is a sin unto death which is pointless to pray about. It puts a person beyond forgiveness even in this life. Therefore the unforgivable blasphemy against the Spirit is not simply a lifetime of resistance against the Holy Spirit."

"BLASPHEMING AGAINST THE SPIRIT

Even after all the talk about how boundless and all-covering God's forgiving grace is, the Scriptures throw us a curveball on salvation. In Mt 12:31,32 it speaks of one sin that will not be forgiven, the sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit. This is traditionally called 'the unforgivable sin'. Yet, the verse in Matthew does not really say that. It does not say that God cannot, or has no power to, forgive it. The verse says only that God will not forgive it. There's a scent of there being something more to it than just the fact of this particular sin's being unforgiven. While there are many different slants on this question, perhaps it's best to start by asking ourselves how it could possibly be that this sin and only this sin will not be forgiven. (The following is, of course, informed guesswork, but really, so are the other views of it.)

The Holy Spirit is the one who brings us Christ and shapes our lives into His. If I were to reject the Holy Spirit, and even urge others to oppose the Spirit, I'd be intentionally blocking and opposing the work of the Spirit. It's worse than merely denying that God is at work among people; that's mere disbelief. It is rejecting God and taking action against God's work among people, against the reign of God as it is unfolding right now. If so, then the Spirit could only enter my life by way of forcible command. Since the Spirit doesn't work that way, that means the faith would not be created in me, and the saving grace that goes with it could not come in.

Acting and speaking against the Holy Spirit is like the prodigal son deciding that he loves being a swine and thus he doesn't go home. If he does not go home, his father never rushes to greet him, he never gets to taste the fatted calf, and he never gets to have a restart in life with someone who loves him. Though it is entirely available, forgiveness would never be had, because that which makes forgiveness happen does not take place. In that same way, the one sin of evil against the Holy Spirit remains unforgiven."

"The necessity to return to the Divine Mother in order to become a New Adam, a second born, a Divine Child has been asserted by Lord Jesus. It is time that those western seekers who have engaged themselves in intellectual pursuits use their intellect to discover the Unity of the message of the various mythologies and religions; they had better realize the greatness of the Christian promise and the value of the other world religions. HH Mataji has brilliantly exposed these teachings in a new light which also illuminates other religious traditions and contemporary science. It is time for us to discover that the true object of Knowledge is integration. All the great religions are one. This is revealed by actualization when our own integration takes place through rebirth.

Although the Great Goddess (Adi Shakti) is"Truly Formless" (see the Devipurana) She has been worshipped through millennia in countless aspects and forms. The three great aspects through which She is channeling Her own power are Mahalaxshmi, Mahasaraswati, Mahakali. She is also known to have taken various incarnated forms (avataras.)

It is thus described in the Scriptures that She is the Primordial Power, the utterly Holy. It is certainly not easy for the western reader to face the very serious hypothesis that She can take human form. To talk about it is even more difficult. This field of Reality only underlines the limitations of ideas and words.

It is only in the holy silence of collective consciousness after achieving self-realization that anything can be revealed about Her. She is supreme, beyond praise, beyond words and certainly beyond anything that can be written. And yet the purpose of this book — an introduction to Sahaja Yoga — cannot be fulfilled without paying due homage to the absolutely unique personality of The Mother who can trigger the super human step in the dynamic process of evolution. After all, the validity of Sahaja Yoga rests upon the authenticity of the teacher who revealed it. And who is great enough to perform such a grand task? Hence in this pitiful time of false prophets and commercialised gurus listen to the TRUTH. When the thieves and robbers are transvestite as saints, teachers and yogic masters, when traditional religions have only too often sunk into lifeless conformism, or economic activities, when words such as 'Divine,' 'God,' 'Holy Spirit' sound almost futile, when the honest seeker is left alone, seemingly abandoned between the stupid and perverted, at this time I have to tell you: awaken your mind to the prospect that the Divine Mother is manifesting in the present time. Of course, Truth is beyond belief and disbelief; it can be experienced only in doubtless awareness because that is where Truth belongs. However, to those of us who have not experienced, we may say a few things:

She is the Teacher who displays a total mastery over the Ultimate Knowledge and who at the same time also provides the disciple with the possibility of experimentally verifying the authenticity of this teaching; She is the Teacher who transforms the disciple's Awareness into a new dimension instead of merely teaching him. Such a Teacher can only open a new cycle of Knowledge in which science, philosophy and spirituality will be synthesized in one integrated understanding. You naturally wonder: who can this Teacher be?"
