Nahum 2:13 – No more blasphemy


The latter part of Nahum 2 :13 reads, “and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard.” The messengers here refer to the messengers (Tartan, Rabsaris and Rabshakeh) that the vile king of Assyria, Sennacherib, sent to mock the people of God and reproach God’s name (2 Kings 18:17; 2 Kings 19:4) blaspheming God (2 Kings 19:6; 2 Kings 19:22). God assures through his prophet Nahum, that such blasphemy shall no longer be heard for the messengers who bring such blasphemy shall be no more.

Points to ponder:
Jesus said that the only unpardonable sin is the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit of God (Mark 3:28; Mark 3:29; Luke 12:10). The Holy Spirit’s function is to convict the world of its sin (of unbelief in Jesus), convince the world of the righteousness (found in no One else but Jesus Christ) and command the world to surrender (to Jesus the Judge of the world) lest it be judged with eternal damnation (John 16:8-12). The Holy Spirit will guide all into The Truth and glorify Jesus, the personification of truth (John 16:13-14; John 14:6). So the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit of God is a wilfull rejection of The Truth – a rejection of Jesus Christ, which guarantees eternal damnation, for there is no other way to Salvation except by believing in Jesus Christ. In other words, a wilfull rejection of the conviction of the Holy Spirit, that Jesus is Lord, has no forgiveness, for there is no other name under heaven or earth, by which one can be saved (Acts 4:12; Hebrews 10: 26-27). Now people may think that they are getting away with blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, but there will come a time when there shall be no more blasphemy, for every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:11).

If you have not believed in the Lord Jesus yet, after knowing of his Salvation, why not do it now? Why wait? Why continue to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit of God? A day will come when there shall be no more blasphemy!

Nahum 2:13 (KJV)
13 Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions: and I will cut off thy prey from the earth, and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard.

Philippians 2:10-11 (KJV)
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
