THE NICOLAITANS AND SIX THINGS GOD HATES

 

In the letter to the angel of the church in Ephesus, the Lord God said in
Rev. 2:6, "Yet this you have, you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I
also hate."

What are the works of the Nicolaitans that God hates?  And who are these
Nicolaitans?  We may get a hint of who are the Nicolaitans from the
following passages in the Old Testament of what God hates:

Proverb 6:16-19 of The Bible (Revised Standard Version) states:  "There are
six things which the Lord hates, seven which are an abomination to Him:
1. Haughty eyes,
2. A lying tongue,
3. Hands that shed innocent blood,
4. A heart that devises wicked plans,
5. Feet that make haste to run to evil,
6. A false witness who breathes out lies, and
7. A man who sows discord among brothers."

Are those six things that the Lord hates among the seven, which are
abominable to Him?  Which is the one that is an abomination to Him but which
He does not hate?  Or are all these abominations to Him also those that He
hates?

Are these six things that the Lord hates the characteristics of the
Nicolaitans?  Does having one of those things make us a Nicolaitan?

Let us avoid having any of those things that God hates--things which are
abominable to Him.  Let us be righteous and be worthy to be with Him here on
Earth and in Heaven.

Postscript:

Related to this post005.htm is post004.htm entitled Why God hates the Nicolaitans. 

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.
