WHY GOD HATES THE NICOLAITANS

 

Two times in the prophetic book of Revelation, the name Nicolaitans was
mentioned.  Herewith are those as quoted from The Bible (RSV):
1)  Letter to the church in Ephesus (Rev. 2:6) - "Yet this you have, you
have the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."
2)  Letter to the church in Pergamum (Rev. 2:15-16) - "So you also have some
who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.  Repent then.  If not, I will come
to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth."

Who are/were the Nicolaitans?  Where do/did they live?  When did they exist?
Who started their group?  What do/did they do that made God hate them?  What
are their teachings or doctrines?

What will make God hate a certain group of people?  This group has its own
teachings or doctrines, and works or actions, which God hate.  God will "war
against them with the sword of His mouth."  What does this mean?

How are the Nicolaitans related to the people in Pergamum?  Found in
Pergamum is the seat of Satan (Rev. 2:13).  Are the Nicolaitans related to
Satan?  And what does Satan do?  He lies.  He is a liar, isn't he?  So the
Nicolaitans must have sown lies about God.  Will these lies about God enough
to justify God's hating the Nicolaitans?  What kind of lies do the
Nicolaitans fabricate?  Are these lies part of the teachings or doctrines of
the Nicolaitans?

How are those in Ephesus related to the Nicolaitans?  It says in Rev. 2:2-3,
"You cannot bear evil men but have tested those who call themselves apostles
but are not, and found them to be false."  Do these evil men and false
apostles belong to the Nicolaitans?  Who do they represent as apostle of?
Of Jesus?  Of God?

The identity of the Nicolaitans is one of the puzzles of the Bible.  We may
just be left speculating.  Your comments on this matter could help shed
light on this puzzle.

Postscript:

Related to this post004.htm is post005.htm entitled The Nicolaitans and six things God hates. 

Two things that I would like to mention here that the Holy Spirit told us:
1.  The prophecies mentioned in the book of Revelation are only being fulfilled now.  Not at any time in the past.  Only now. (Please refer to post040.htm, When will the prophecies in Revelation be fulfilled?)
2.  The churches referred to in the book of Revelation are us, the peoples of this world.  The churches are the classifications of people.  Which of the seven churches are we?  (Please refer to post024.htm, Who or what is referred to as the church in Revelation?)

Since the prophecies in the book of Revelation are for our present time, who do you think are the Nicolaitans?  I will reveal what the Holy Spirit said of who the Nicolaitans are later.  Please analyze what the Nicolaitans do which God hates.
