    A MUST READ for every one that calls themselves a Christian. Please share and even copy paste and print to share. The Church must read and obey Jesus.
    • Jesus said, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten, be zealous therefore and repent.”
    Revelations 3:19
    • The churches in Revelations represent three things.
    • First it was written to the seven churches in John’s day.
    • Second it represents the church ages.
    • Third it represents the churches in the last age.

    Since the churches are addressed to the seven churches in the Laodicean church age. We are in that age, so we should look at what Jesus said and what pleases Him and what does not. So, let us get started!

    Good stuff, Serena!
    Luke 21:36 "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

    We will either dwell in the secret place of the Most High or our flesh will make us want to hide things in secret. -- Nathan Leal

      What was it that the Nicolaitans do that God hated so much? Do I have this right?

      From this website:

      I got this "word Nicolaos in Greek: "conqueror of the people"

      Could it be that the seven mountain heresy is the Nicolaitan teaching? Is there more?

        Then what was also the sins of Balaam and Jezebel?
        The Sweet Psalmist

          So I am getting from the sermon that Balaam's doctrine, was to curse or bless. God hates people cursing his people.

          The king was looking at the weakness of Isreal, and trying to take the blessing away.

          Is there more that I am missing?

            So the doctrine of Nicolaitans was "conqueror of the people". So conqueroring the seven mountains would be the doctrine of Nicolaitans. Is this right or wrong?
