“Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth” Proverbs 27:1


This statement has confused a lot of people. Some ministers use this term when preaching on the unpardonable sin; some say this is the only UNPARDONABLE sin. What does it mean? It means a person says “NO” to God one time too many, and he departs this world before he has another chance to be saved. For instance, if a man attends church Sunday after Sunday, he hears the Word of God, he is convicted of sin, he feels in his heart that he should be saved and live right, BUT– – he refuses to be saved, he refuses to give his heart to God in response to the Spirit’s call, he rejects God’s grace again and again– –ONE DAY God will withdraw His call. No one can say when–for no one knows how many times God will call.

ONE THING WE DO KNOW – God is not DUTY BOUND to call a sinner over and over. When God by the Holy Spirit calls a sinner and that sinner does not respond to the call, God is under no obligation to call him again. ALL of us deserve hell, for “ALL HAVE SINNED . . .” (Romans 3:23). God could permit us ALL to die and go to hell and still be a just God, a holy God.

God does not own man anything. ALL GOD HAD DONE FOR US is because of His “GREAT LOVE WHEREWITH HE LOVED US” (Ephesians 2:4). If you, dear soul, at one time or another have rejected the call of God, DO NOT EVER DO IT AGAIN. That is, IF GOD CALLS YOU AGAIN– –if you have another chance – – THAT MOMENT receive Jesus as your Saviour. Do we have any Scripture to prove there is a time when God withdraws His Spirit and instructs the Holy Spirit never to convict or call an individual again? Yes, we do; and we will look at a limited number of the MANY Scriptures that clearly prove man can cross the deadline by continually rejecting the call of the Holy Spirit. In the first book in the Bible, God said, “My Spirit shall not ALWAYS strive with man . . .” (Genesis 6:3).
