Resisting The Holy Spirit: Sins Against The Holy Spirit Part 6

Resisting The Holy Spirit

Today, we are going to be considering, “Resisting The Holy Spirit”

What does “to resist mean”?

To resist means to withstand the action or effect of. It means to set oneself against someone or something. It also means to combat or oppose. 

  • Our bible text shows that there has been some antecedents by the Jews. They always resist the Holy Spirit. It is not a one off habit but that has been their habitual practice. Stephen was the one speaking here to lay emphasis on how the Israelites constantly resist the Holy Spirit. He described them as stiff-necked people and uncircumcised in heart

How can you resist the Holy Spirit?

You resist the Holy Spirit if your heart is uncircumcised 

God made references to this several times in the scripture by telling the Israelites to circumcise their hearts:

Deuteronomy 30:6

“And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

Deuteronomy 10:15-16

Yet on your fathers did the Lord set His affection to love them, and He chose their descendants after them, even you above all peoples, as it is this day. So circumcise your heart, and stiffen your neck no longer.
