What Is The Doctrine Of The Nicolaitanes?
continued

 
    
That, brethren, is why the Lord Jesus Christ is OUTSIDE of the church today, saying,

" Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."(Revelation 3:20)

     Jesus in this verse is talking to the CHURCH, not the world; and he is pleading for anyone who will COME OUT of that filthy abominable religion of the Laodiceans (which is Greek for, "the people of my wrath"), and come to have fellowship with him. To "sup" is to break bread together, which is an intimate form of fellowship, and also a covenant privilege. But in order to do that, we must first "open the door", which means to come out of the denominations and their religious nonsense, and meet Jesus outside.    

 When he said,

"I will come in to him, and will sup with him...",

      ...he was definitely NOT saying that he would come in to the denomination from whence we have come to meet him: but rather to "come in" to someone means to have intimate fellowship with him; even as with a man and his wife.

      So, in order to have that intimate fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ that we need and desire greatly (if we are of his seed), we must necessarily come out of the religious system that he hates. To just sit there so as to not offend men, and still profess to love Jesus, will only anger him more. A friend of the world is verily the enemy of God. No man may serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
 


"Come out of her, my people", saith the Lord; and so say I his minister. Come out and live, or abide therein and perish. It is black and white. It is just that simple.

Period.

      Brethren and friends, now you know how to identify the doctrine and the deeds of the Nicolaitanes. You know also that Jesus Christ hates them, because they are oppressors of his people and usurpers of his authority over them. They are of the wicked one, and their spiritual offspring are children of hell even as they are. They can offer you nothing but death and destruction, and the confusion of their "theological" rhetoric.

      (Theology is nonsense at least, and witchcraft at most, because it is an illicit tool to twist and pervert the meaning of the word of God!)

      They are in the business of making merchandise of you, and desire to glory in your flesh.    

 Jesus Christ our Lord is the Good Shepherd who has laid down his life for the sheep. Let us be washed with water by his word, and come out from among the children of his wrath so we can bask in the sunshine of his wisdom and love and joy! And when we come together to break bread and have fellowship in his presence, let us not be bound by the yoke of the ungodly who desire to have us for their disciples; but rather let us in liberty worship God our Saviour and rejoice in the power of his love and the wondrous gifts he hath bestowed on every man and woman in his house.


"When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men."

(Ephesians 4:8, Psalm 68:18)

To him be honour and glory and power forevermore.

Amen.
