MAKING BELIEVE: Nicolaitans
For the people who live in this country you need to know this: there is an Almighty, Everlasting, Omniscient, God. He has complete and unlimited knowledge, awareness, understanding; He perceives all things. God is, and always has been active in the affairs of men, of the leaders of this nation, and events of the whole world. The rights of every human being, including our right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness come from Him. He is the one who framed the universe.
The problem is this: We must first have leaders that will recognize this and base their decisions on what says the Lord God. Today in Washington we do not have that.
It is the responsibility and obligation of our government to make safe, look after, keep, and preserve these God given rights, to recognize and accept our Creator, to glorify Him and make Him known to everybody in this country and around the world; and when this does not take place, when civil government that takes this country in a direction that becomes destructive and are not of God given purposes, it is our duty to alter, change, or put an end to such Godless government. We need to, with much prayer, vote them out of office. That is If we are a Christian nation and claim to be servants of Jesus Christ.
We (this includes our government leaders) need to serve Christ in all areas of our life, in our very thoughts and our actions, and nothing less. This means destroying arguments that are against the knowledge of God and what thus says the Lord. We must be seriously concerned about the fact that far too many of today’s [but not all] Christian leaders, government leaders, and others are a sinful embarrassment and are to blame for most of the sins in this country, but they still call their self Christians and doing nothing but mock the Christian religion and our Savior. They have dishonored our Lord and sold their Christian birthright for no less than a mess of political pottage.
They are like Esau, who sold his birthright for a bowel of stew and gave up his inheritance. People and groups have taken sides for every reason in the book except the ones outlined in ‘THE BOOK’ which is the Word of God. Christian people will take sides because of skin color, their political party, or what they can get out of voting for a certain person. Those folks and groups are Christian in name only. They Have a form of godliness, but they deny the very guild lines that Christians are to follow. Sad to say these people have a name: ‘NICOLAITANS’ and in the Book of Revelation we are told God hates the Nicolaitans.
The Nicolaitans had given into compromise with the pagan, ungodly society, around them. The same thing is happening today in our country and it is sad. Let us be over comers for the Lord and live by his word. Only over comers will be with the Lord forever and ever!
