WHAT IS YOUR BACK-UP PLAN?

Luke 12:10-12

Luk 12:10 And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the person who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
Luk 12:11 But when they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you should make your defence or what you should say,
Luk 12:12 because the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you must say.”

renouncing the revelation

There is a great deal of commentary out there on what it means to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, but very little of it has anything to do with this actual passage. Luke makes it clear that the context of this hard saying is when someone is being challenged to renounce their faith. In that context, blaspheming the Holy Spirit would be rejecting the truth in favour of a convenient lie. The Holy Spirit will give me words to say in my defence. If I refuse to testify to that truth, I have blasphemed against his revelatory ministry.

LORD, give us the courage to stand for you, and speak the words you give.
