Revelation 2:1-7

To the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things said he that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the middle of the seven golden candlesticks;

I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can not bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars:

And have borne, and have patience, and for my name’ sake have labored, and have not fainted.

Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love.

Remember therefore from where you are fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of his place, except you repent.

But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the middle of the paradise of God.
Rev. 2:1-7,

.Who were the Nicolaitanes?

  • These were followers of a man called Nicolas
  • he practiced idolatrous teachings
  • he practiced are linked with those of Balaam who used Midianite women to seduce the men of Israel and led them to worship Idols
  • They ate food offered to idols and since this food was obtained in the idolatrous temples, there was a lot of immoral sexuallity involved in it.
