The Unpardonable sin and taking his name in vain.

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Shalom to our Family around the world

As we go to post this News Letter Thursday evening, the news today is that President Trump has declared he will withdraw the USA from the Paris Treaty.

I pray you all are paying attention to what is going on right before your eyes. Prophecy is jumping up and down and saying look here, look over here. Yehovah has told us He would send the Assyrians to destroy us if we did not repent. He did it once and He is about to do it again. The stage is set, the cast is dyed. First Britain’s BREXIT from the EU. Now the USA has declared it will EXIT the Paris Treaty.

The book of Revelation tells Israel to “come out of her my people” The UK and the USA have done this very thing coming out of the Beast¬†power that is the EU and Germany. They are still caught up in the Baal Peor lifestyles which the Paris Treaty was promoting. Again we ask you to once again watch and share this over and over with the people you know. It is our video on Trump and Baal Peor. It has to do with this Paris Treaty and the terrible things Obama was leading the country into.

But what does this all mean?

If you pay attention to the things Chancellor Merkel is saying you should be able to know where this is going. And the way it is going is full filling Bible prophecy precisely. The USA first and the BREXIT of the UK are leaving the great whore of Europe without the income they would have had from the UK and the USA. The Carbon Tax that they would have been able to collect from them. Now the EU is saying they have to go it alone and that they will not renegotiate trade deals with the UK and they will not renegotiate trade deals with the USA after the USA rejects the Paris Treaty.

Again Bible prophecy is jumping up and biting you in the face. Yet many of you have no clue. Again Revelation tells you that unless you have the mark of the beast you will not be able to buy or sell. Both the USA and UK are on the outs with the EU. The EU has fortified trade deals with South America and Central America and Asia.

Every trade war is soon followed up with bullets and bombs that are used to get the way of the waging parties. They could not win by trade and so they resort to forcefully taking it. We have explained this in the prophecy of Josephs 7 years of plenty and 7 years of famine. Those 7 years of plenty are the EU which represent Egypt getting all this wealth. But it comes at the expense of the UK and the USA who are about to be defeated in war.

Daniel 9 prophecies tell us that Israel, all 12 tribes, also known as the Anointed, will be destroyed so badly that they will be as if they never were.

There are many of you that talk about the 2nd exodus and how it will be greater than the first one out of Egypt. But you ignore the fact that before you can come out of captivity you must first go into captivity as a defeated nation.

You are about to witness it first hand if you survive. You are about to see our societies attacked and then watch as our cities turn into disease epidemics and our countryside turned into slaughterhouses. All of this as you watch your loved ones starve.

I cannot tell you with enough dramatization to get The 2300 Days of Hell now and read it. Everything we have warned you about in this book is coming to pass. And if it continues to do so, then at Shavuot in 2020 all hell is about to break out. That is now just 3 years away. JUST THREE YEARS from this Shavuot this weekend!!!

This is for North America and the UK. Judgment is now upon the house of Israel. But the rest of the world, you have until this next Sabbatical year in 2023. You need to learn about it and prepare for it and keep it. You need to read Remembering the Sabbatical year of 2016 and you also need to read it now.

And those of you who have read them and who do see this sword coming, you are told in Ezekiel that you must warn others or their blood is going to be on your head. So you do not get to hide or be silent. You must speak up and you must also warn others. It is not just upon my shoulders. And you must keep on shouting out that warning. Week in and week out. It is not just a one time deal. Where are all the voices that are doing this? The silence is deafening.

And one more thing.

A sister sent me a dream and she was given this dream twice. Yes, I know what you thinking. I think the same thing about those who tell me their dreams. And yet there have been certain ones as I shared with you last week that are coming true. In her dream, she dreamt President Trump would be assassinated and she dreamt this dream twice. We pray it is not true. But we can see just how much this president is hated by the media and the liberal left of the society. And then you add to them all of those in the world and other nations whom he has now just rejected by revoking the Paris Treaty.

You are also told in your Bibles to pray for your leaders. President Trump is in need of our prayers. I have been listening to Jay Sekulow this past week and learning of the many documents showing how Obama did spy on the Trump team and are the ones leaking many of those things from that spying today. President Trump is being sabotaged by the past outgoing President. These are documented reports being released by the US agencies of which the liberal media are not reporting on. What a travesty.

Brethren these are exciting and terrifying times that we live in. No, I am not fear mongering. Not to those who are obeying Yehovah. But to those who will not keep the Sabbath, the Holy Days of Lev 23 by the sighted moon and the barley being aviv, and to those who will not and would not keep the Sabbatical year, yes, damn right I am scaring you. Because I am repeating what Yehovah said He would do if you did not obey. So if you have a problem with it then take it up with Him or repent and begin to obey.

In the Mail this Week


Dear Joe

I hadn’t been reading your newsletters the past few weeks.¬† My mind has been going through some stuff.¬† I’m so so glad I read your true testimony on what journey your life has been on.¬† Joe this sighted moon calendar, sure is a stigma with people. ¬† ¬†I’ve tossed this back and forth, mulled it over.¬† Yeah, ok, maybe they are right, then I go to Genesis 1 and it talks about the evening an the morning, the sun to rule over the day, the moon to rule over the night.¬† Really, seriously it’s been a roller coaster, at first, yeah, I’ll do 2 Shavuot’s, and 2 Feast of Tabernacles with the both calendars, then, that’s crazy, So, then I establish this question with Yehovah, and leads me to really Genesis 1.¬† I go to read your newsletter last night, and here is your personal experience with the issue that I have been having, and it’s like, right on, Thank You Father for this breath of fresh air.¬† I’ve been also listening to teachings ¬†on Covenants, wow, this is so important, to realize that it all stems back from Abraham, Genesis 15, what God established with AbraHAM AND HIS DESCENDANTS FOREVER.¬† Scripture, all throughout refers back to the covenantal promise.¬† Two weeks ago’s torah portion topic on “when you enter the land, keep the land sabbath”.¬† There are phrases and commandments in Leviticus 19, that are mixed in with this phrase that deals with commands, that doesn’t mean outside the land we are negated to leave out commands, e.g. prostitute your daughter, and unto the 4th year to eat the fruit off the trees.¬† Israel is a people also, as well as the land.¬† It’s a land and a people.¬† Leviticus 25 “when you enter the land” .And there’s ¬†a lot of commandments to do when you enter the land. ¬† ¬†Well then, there’s a problem: ¬†The last verse in Leviticus states: ¬†These are the commandments, which the Lord commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.¬† So some might say, no, don’t have to do the others as well, because it was only given to the children of Israel, back then.¬† The sabbatical year has taught me a great deal, how to plan, how to have self-control.¬† How to eat, I took my garden for granted, now it’s a privilege to garden, a privilege to plant. a privilege to work the land.¬† He is our source, not our own strength.¬† He miraculously provides, when I think I’m stuck.¬† I’m amazed in the wilderness, Elohim fed all those people, without them growing a crop.¬† This heavenly manna that sustained them out there in that big scary desert.¬† My mind has caused me to expand, and am having trouble realizing just how awesome what He did while they were out in the desert, away from the grocery stores, away from ANY STORE.

I just want to say, your letter is very inspiring Joe.¬† You’ve encouraged me, and I am pondering on going on your tour to Israel for the feast.¬† Is there any room yet?¬† It is a command to go unto Jerusalem to the feasts, and I’ve neglected.¬† I know we are scattered, but , but, but, but.
Yehovah Bless You Richly Joe, and thanks for that really special newsletter this week.


I just again want to thank you for the newsletter. For several months I have been struggling to get a few things set in my mind. And Hehovah has used the last several newsletters to show me, convict me, that the way i was leaning was indeed true and right. My mind and my heart is again at peace. I will no longer listen to anyone who does not keep the feast the Shabbat the Torah nor go by his calendar.

Lisa Rae


Good afternoon, Joseph!!

Once again, an awesome newsletter. Packed with wisdom. Loved hearing about your encounters with Yehovah. Someday, I want to join you on a tour.

Regarding the seven years of plenty, does that include the United States. Thanks, and look forward to your response.

Actually, the 7 years of plenty are for the Beast power. They will be made great while we are being destroyed. Those 7 years of plenty for the Beast power begin in the middle of this 70th Jubilee cycle that Daniel 9 is talking about. Those 7 years of plenty for the beast power begin in the middle of this current Jubilee cycle. Those 7 years of plenty begin for the Beast power when the 2300 Days of Hell begin for the 12 tribes of Israel. It is that Beast power that is going to rape and take all it wants from those 12 tribes. This is why it is getting great at that time. The very same time all 12 tribes are being destroyed and slaughtered. Do get the book The 2300 Days of Hell as soon as possible.


The Unpardonable Sin

What sin have you done that is so bad that Yehovah will not forgive you?

How many of you or how many people you know have walked away from the Torah, giving up, because they felt they had committed the Unpardonable sin and could not forgive themselves for it?

How many of you were involved in the sex sins or are still in the sin of watching and liking porn? Is that the unpardonable sin?

What about Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin who each slaughtered millions of people? Are they guilty of the unpardonable sin?

How about those people who abused you as a child? What about pedophiles, have they committed the unpardonable sin?

What is that sin that is so bad that Yehovah will not forgive it?

Did Jesus not die for all mankind’s¬†sins?

John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Neh 9:13-19 “You came down also on Mount Sinai,
And spoke with them from heaven,
And gave them just ordinances and true laws,
Good statutes and commandments.
You made known to them Your holy Sabbath,
And commanded them precepts, statutes and laws,
By the hand of Moses Your servant.
You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger,
And brought them water out of the rock for their thirst,
And told them to go in to possess the land
Which You had sworn to give them.
“But they and our fathers acted proudly,
Hardened their necks,
And did not heed Your commandments.
They refused to obey,
And they were not mindful of Your wonders
That You did among them.
But they hardened their necks,
And in their rebellion
They appointed a leader
To return to their bondage.
But You are God,
Ready to pardon,
Gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger,
Abundant in kindness,
And did not forsake them.
“Even when they made a molded calf for themselves,
And said, ‚ÄėThis is your god
That brought you up out of Egypt,’
And worked great provocations,
Yet in Your manifold mercies
You did not forsake them in the wilderness.

Yehovah wants to forgive us and is ready to pardon us. Just as we shared with you last week about the Father in the Prodigal Son teaching. He is watching daily for our return. He is eager to race out and meet us. But we must first repent and then return to Him. There is no need to go through Judah or any other middle person or group.

Psalm 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,

So if Yehovah will forgive all our sins, then what is the unpardonable sin?

If you were to keep reading Psalm 103 you will get part of the answer to understand this question.

Psalm 103:9-13 He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children,
So the Lord pities those who fear Him.

His mercy is towards those who ‘Fear” Him and He pities those who ‘Fear’ Him.

I cannot tell you how many people have written me to condemn the things we teach here at accusing me of fear mongering. I show you the curses for not keeping the Sabbatical years. I show you them in the order they are to come. The curse of Terror, of Extreme weather, of pestilence, of War and of Captivity. But people reject these teachings because the god they believe in is the god of love and not of fear.

They then go on to quote out of context the following verses.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

2 Tim 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Those who quote these verses ignore these other verses also from the scriptures.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

We resolve the seeming discrepancy if we just keep reading.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.

Yehovah has mercy towards those who fear Him and who do His commandments. He pities them and forgives them because they fear Him. And this is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom when we keep HIs commandments. Is this not the very same thing we are told at Mount Sinai?

Exodus 20:5-6 For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Those who fear Yehovah, love Him. They respect Him.

Most men get upset and will even fight those who disrespect them. This is the one thing most women have trouble understanding. Loving your husband is not respecting them. On the other hand, most men do not understand love. Respecting your wife is not showing her love. Men need to be respected. It is never to be earned. It is to be given automatically.

1 Peter 3 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
3 Wives, respect and obey your husbands in the same way. Then the husbands who do not obey the word of God will want to know God. They will want to know God because their wives live good lives, even though they say nothing about God.

It is the same with Yehovah. We are to give our respect to Him. This is also known as a respectful fear or awe of Him.

The Unpardonable Sin is told to us in Matthew.

Matt 12:30-12 “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

Now, most do not ever use this teaching about the unpardonable sin in context.

Let us now read it in context.

Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. And all the multitudes were amazed and said, ‚ÄúCould this be the Son of David?‚ÄĚ
Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, ‚ÄúThis fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.‚ÄĚ
But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: ‚ÄúEvery kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.

“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

‚ÄúEither make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.‚ÄĚ

Have you ever considered the story in Acts about the husband and wife who died for lying?

Acts 5:1-11¬†But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles‚Äô feet. But Peter said, ‚ÄúAnanias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.‚ÄĚ
Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.
Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. And Peter answered her, ‚ÄúTell me whether you sold the land for so much?‚ÄĚ
She said, ‚ÄúYes, for so much.‚ÄĚ
Then Peter said to her, ‚ÄúHow is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.‚ÄĚ Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.

How is this connected to what Yehoshua said about the sin that would not be pardoned?


We are this weekend celebrating Shavuot. What has the unpardonable sin got to do with Shavuot? The sin that Ananias and his wife Sapphira did is very much connected to the events of Shavuot and what Yehishua said about the sin that would not be forgiven.

A few weeks ago I did a podcast with Keith Johnson. In that interview, we were talking about his book His Hallowed Name Revealed Again. I had a question for him about what struck me from his book about the name. It floored me when I read it and the more I thought about it, the more it floored me and I wanted Keith to comment on it. I hope you listen to our podcasts and share them with others.

We mentioned this verse above. It was given to us at Mount Sinai on this Shavuot when Yehovah is proposing to Israel and we are accepting the Ketubah from Him.

Exodus 20:7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

But in the very verse before this Yehovah¬†says ‘but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” How can He in one sentence forgive and then in the next not forgive? And this has got me to thinking about this unpardonable sin.

I grew up thinking this Exodus 20:7 commandment was Thou Shalt not swear. You cannot say God Damn or Jesus Christ or you would be going to hell. And to this day I cannot say those things as cuss words or as cuss expressions. But this is not what we are being told in this commandment.

I am now going to paraphrase what Keith explains so well in his book His Hallowed Name Revealed again. I cannot tell you enough to get it and read it.

The word “take” is the Hebrew word¬†acn¬†(Nasa). This same word is used in Number 23:7, 24:3, 24:15

Numbers 23:7 And he took up his oracle and said

To take up or to Nasa is to lift up your voice about something.

The next key word here is the word awc (Shav) is translated as Vain. This word Shav has many meanings and it is difficult to translate. Here are the meanings of this word.

Deceit, deceitful, deception, emptiness, empty, false, falsehood, lies, vain, vanity, vision, and worthless.

Rambam explains this word Shav in this commandment as;

it is forbidden to show contempt for God by making an idol, so it is forbidden to disgrace His Name by using it for no valid purpose. The plain meaning of the verse implies that it is forbidden ever to utter God’s Name casually, for no¬†valid purpose.

Keith goes on to explain why we are to use His name to bless and to swear by. We are not going to get into the reasons why Judah will not even utter the name today which is part of what Rambam is saying.

We are looking at the word vain, or Shav, and how that is related to the unpardonable sin. It also is going to explain why Ananias and Sapphira died that day, after Shavuot had come to pass with the Holy Spirit coming down on the Apostles.

We are commanded in Exodus 20:7 not to speak in vain Yehovah’s name. In Psalm 144 the same word vain (Shav) is translated as ‘lying words’.

Psalm 144:8 Whose mouth speaks lying words,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

This psalm is showing us how two Hebrew words are used together many times to express something that we should be aware of. The word Shav-vanity is often used together interchangeably with the word Shaker meaning falsehood.

This is very important to understand. Now, look at the 9th commandment.

Exodus 20:16 “You shall not bear false (rqc Shaker) witness against your neighbor.

Moses then repeats this same commandment in Deut 5:20 but instead of using the word Shaker he uses the word Shav.

Deut. 5:20 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

What these scriptures are showing you is that the 3rd commandment of not taking the name in vain can be better translated as not taking up the name of Yehovah falsely. We even have this better understanding used in Exodus 23:1

Exodus 23:1 Thou shalt not take up (Nasa)  a false (Shav) report: put not thy hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

This commandment is almost identical to the third commandment. The difference is that this one prohibits the speaking of a false report or rumor while the third commandment prohibits speaking the name of Yehovah falsely.

Many translations of the word Shav use the word false in Exodus 23:1 and Deuteronomy 5:20 but will use the word vain for the exact same Hebrew word in Exodus 20:7 and Deuteronomy 5:11 even though all four verse are dealing with vain or false speech. So we have two verses confirming that a vain witness is, in fact, a false witness.

This is important to understand, because once you understand this vital point, then you can go on to understand what it is that Yehovah will not forgive. You will then be able to understand what is that unpardonable sin that Yehshua spoke of in Matthew. And you will be able to understand what it was the Ananias and Sapphira did that brought on their death. Then you can make sure you do not break the one commandment that Yehovah will not forgive you.

Anciently people swore by the name of their god or the name of the king that ruled over them. Joseph does this in Genesis 42:15 swearing by the name of Pharaoh.

In Samuel, we have an example of Saul swearing by the name of Yehovah.

1 Samuel 28:10¬†And Saul swore to her by the Lord, saying, ‚ÄúAs the Lord lives, no punishment shall come upon you for this thing.‚ÄĚ

Jeremiah 4:1-2 ‚ÄúIf you will return, O Israel,‚ÄĚ says the Lord,
“Return to Me;
And if you will put away your abominations out of My sight,
Then you shall not be moved.
And you shall swear, ‚ÄėThe Lord lives,‚Äô
In truth, in judgment, and in righteousness;
The nations shall bless themselves in Him,
And in Him they shall glory.‚ÄĚ

Yehovah Himself swear by His own name. There is no higher authority by which to swear.

Jer 22:24¬†‚ÄúAs I live,‚ÄĚ says the Lord,

Deut 32:40 For I raise My hand to heaven,
And say, “As I live forever,

It is from this swearing in Hebrew that we get the idea of raising our hands in a court of law to swear upon the Bible. The word Nasa (acn) and hand (dy) are translated as I swore.

Exodus 6:8 And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob;

Ezekiel 20:23 Also I raised My hand in an oath to those in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the Gentiles and disperse them throughout the countries,

Yehovah is vowing to do what it is that He Saying by lifting His hand and stating this thing by His name.

Now when we read in Psalm the following verse many do not get the gravity of what is being said.

Psalm 24:3-4 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?
Or who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully.

Think on this one verse some more. We have some examples in the Bible of people swearing by their souls.

1 Samuel 25:26 Now therefore, my lord, as the Lord lives and as your soul lives,

2 Samuel 11:11¬†As you live, and as your soul lives, I will not do this thing.‚ÄĚ

Psalm 24 is then saying ‘Who has not lifted (Nasa) my soul (Yehovah’s soul) in vain (shav) and has not sworn deceitfully.’ To take my soul in vain is to take a false vow swearing by their soul in the same way one would swear by the King or Gods name.

My former understanding of the 3rd commandment of “you are not to swear” is totally out of line when I now understand that Yehovah tells me that I am to swear by His name.

So that third commandment means that we are not to take up the name of Yehovah in a vow with deceit in your heart. You are not to swear or vow using the name of Yehovah when you know it to be a lie.

Yehovah even says what we just showed you to be true in Leviticus.

Lev 19:12 And you shall not swear by My name falsely, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.

And yet Yehovah tells us to swear in His name.

Deut 6:12 You shall fear the Lord your God and serve Him, and shall take oaths in His name.

Deut 10:20 You shall fear the Lord your God; you shall serve Him, and to Him you shall hold fast, and take oaths in His name.

Remember what I said above about fear and respect. Here you respect the name of Yehovah so much that you are willing to make an oath by His name using no higher authority in the universe.

Ananias and Sapphira both were caught up in the excitement that was sweeping the city of Jerusalem. For the previous 50 days, they had heard reports and maybe even seen the resurrected Yehoshua. They then heard about the Holy Spirit coming down on Shavuot on the Apostles and how 5000 were converted.  They themselves most likely being two of those 5000 that were now believers. It was a very exciting week of events at this time.

We then read in Acts 4:32-37

Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.
And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus, having land, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

So then they lied about what they had donated. They lied to the Holy Spirit which is Yehovah. They took His name and lied. They broke the 3rd commandment of taking the name of Yehovah falsely. We are told in Ephesians how lying grieves the Holy Spirit. In other words how lying grieves Yehovah.

Eph 4:25-32¬†Therefore, putting away lying, ‚ÄúLet each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,‚ÄĚ for we are members of one another. ‚ÄúBe angry, and do not sin‚ÄĚ: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

The unpardonable sin is using the name of Yehovah and speaking falsely.

This Shavuot is the 3396th anniversary of the ketubah we agreed to with Yehovah. It was on this day we raised our hands and gave our oaths to obey those commandments He gave us that day. You have now been called back to His Torah. He is the one who called you. Bless His Holy name by obeying the commandments.
