Presumptuous Sins Are Ultimate Rebellion Against God — 9 Comments

  1. Thank you for this wonderful truth of the word. Its almost a forgotten truth now a days. God bless you and your ministry.

  2. David’s Murder of Uriah and his adultery clearly was a well-planned/designed sin, sinning willfully and deliberately against the law (without and within) and was thus, by your definition, a presumptuous sin, and thus according to Number 15:30, he should be utterly cut off. Then for what reason(s), a presumptuous sin could be forgiven and not, that David was forgiven but Judas Iscariot was not?

    The essence of this is, only God/Holy Spirit knows that, and He testifies to us with evidences that we are his son or not, and he dwells in us or not. There are “professed Christians”, who say, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? But Jesus said, Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Yea, He that loveth and doeth the will of the Father is his adopted son. However, it doesn’t mean that as sons, we will not err and sin. Yea, we probably will, as before the future bodily redemption is done, we still need to, relying upon the grace of God, through the intercession of Jesus Christ in the heaven, and the helps from Holy Spirit who knows all of us, mortify the deeds of this body/flesh and make us live. Of course, if we failed, no matter that sin is done willfully (acting against the Holy Spirit) or unwittingly (out of our ignorance), as long as we repent truthfully, that repentance is wrought by the Holy Spirit, and thus lead us to forgiveness; even unto seventy seven times in a day. But who, but God and us can know if we are truly repented and abhor our sins and transgressions?

    One essence of Christian life is, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

    But for those who are “professed Christians”, they appear to be “Christian-like”, disciples/followers of Jesus (as what Judas Iscariot did), but inside them, they have no indwelling of Holy Spirit, no God’s life in them, therefore they would prolong in sinning, continue to abide in it, without any heartedly abhorrence of sin; for God is Holy, and if He dwells in us, how could we not abhor sin, how could we not feel guilty of sinning, how could the Holy Spirit not reminding us from sinning by His words, and thus how could we not experience the separation of us from Him due to sin? As sons of God, we know.

    But the sons of the devil, though there might be, from time to time, due to the mercy of God, their conscience would reproach their sins, but there surely none of God’s words abides in him. They continually chose to ignore their consciences, as what Judas Iscariot did, did his conscience not condemning him of stealing the money from the pocket and his greediness? For the continual rejection of the conscience and without any help of indwelling Holy Spirit, how can they stop sinning according to their lusts of flesh, lusts of eyes and pride of this life? Sometimes, they even cannot feel any regret in doing their evils, even they do, they believe not those will have serious consequences because they sin against a holy God, or those could be forgiven, for Holy Spirit had worked not in them for true repentance.

    That is, until the work of God/Holy Spirit had been wrought in them, drawing them nigh to Him, through knowing Jesus Christ and His Gospel, then he can start to see what a sinner they are, and thus repent to God.

    But out of the mystery of God’s election, (for that, only God will know), before the foundation of the world, regardless of what are our merits or works or who and what are we, some are elected by him to be saved and some not. Is it an injustice of God then? God forbids. For every one of us are sinners. We love sin. We chose to sin, repeatedly. If we die, we die of the penalty / wages of our sin, fair. Our sin proved that we hate God, we love evils, we want to escape from God because He is the light that reproaches our sins. We (deep inside our soul), sinners, fear of Him.

    Is it fair for Jesus, the righteous, to die for the unrighteous like us? If any man who continue, even unto his death, to refuse this love and grace of God, and prolong himself in sin, is it an injustice that God will not punish him in the end? Is it an injustice that God separates him from Him in eternity? If not sufferings and evils, what will be remain if we leave the fountain of all goodness? So, for those whose sins have not forgiven in his life, it is they that refused God’ forgiveness. It is their choice to be in hell with their father. It is their choice.

  3. When I read this article, i understand that the sin of Judas Iscariot was presumptuous sin and the sin of Peter was sin of ignorant. Thank you.

  4. Thanks for this piece. I am enlightened and blessed. Please, what is the differences between Psalm 19:13 and Hebrews 10:26 ( presumptuous sins and sinning willfully.

  5. When we sincerely repent and come back to God just like the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32, God is more that willing to welcome us back and restore us.

    However to continue to live a life above sin, help my the Holy Spirit,been must dwell on the word of God daily, the scriptures, as we read His word, all those weaknesses will leave because as we behold Him through His words, we become like Him.

    and we all, with unvailed face, the glory of the Lord beholding in a mirror, to the same image are being transformed, from glory to glory, even … 2nd Corinthians 3:18

  6. This struggle is presented in Romans 7. Often true believers do what they actually hate and do not have the power to do the good they actually want to (Romans 7:19). Paul makes it clear that it is only through Jesus Christ that we can be set free (Romans 7:25). As stated in Romans 6:14, sins dominion over us can only be overcome by grace and not law. It is surrendering to God’s mercy and grace that wins the battle of the flesh against the Spirit (Galatians 5:16-25). Hence, God urges us to come boldly to His throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace to help in times of need (Hebrews 4:16).

  7. YesI struggle with this as well. I was very stupid to commit this sin against the Holy God after I serve Him for so long. I am really worried if I die today that I will go to hell because God will cut me off. I repent and feel really bad that I failed God so badly and wish I never did it. How do I know God forgave me and that He will not send me to hell on judgement day or is that something that no one knows until that day. I cant sleep in the evening and living in fear everyday.

  8. Thank you for this article. I’m trying to come back to God and repent of past and even present struggle/rebellion towards what I feel His will is for me. I’m struggling with condemnation though. Why is it so hard to surrender? I’m 52 now and struggling to hear Him. I want to hear Him more clearly and I know that repentance and faith are essential to this. I’m also struggling to believe for His forgiveness. I wish I had been more sober years ago. I really do love and value what Jesus did for me on the cross. It hurts my heart that I’ve hurt Him and myself in the process. I hate the shallow mindset that I set out with in my early 20s. I NEED HIM SO BADLY and find myself trying so hard but worry that I’m getting caught up in works instead. Am I alone in this and are there testimonies of those who have gone to the dark slide of the moon and returned to tell about it?
