Rev 2:6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Rev 2:15 Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
Twice Jesus mentioned the Nicolaitans. He hates the deeds of the Nicolaitans and the doctrine of the Nicolaitans. There is a distinction between deeds(Hebrew=ἔργον) and doctrine(Hebrew=διδάσκω), which means “to work / “the labourer” and “to teach / “the employer”. For emphasis, Jesus did not say He hated the Nicolaitans.
The deeds and doctrine of the Nicolaitans are revealed by the Rider of the White Horse.
Rev 6:1 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
The seal has been “unsealed” within the last few years.
White = Symbol of doctors and scientists.
A bow = A weapon that pierces the skin in the same way of a syringe.
A crown = “Corona” meaning Crown.
He went out conquering and to conquer
The word Nicolaitan means “People Conqueror” or subduing people. The deeds and the doctrines of the Nicolaitan were introduced to Moses when he heeded the voice of his father-in-law instead of his Father in Heaven.
Exodus 18:2-15 And Moses said to his father-in-law, “Because the people come to me to inquire of God. When they have a difficulty, they come to me, and I judge between one and another; and I make known the statutes of God and His laws.” So Moses’ father-in-law said to him, “The thing that you do is not good. Both you and these people who are with you will surely wear yourselves out. For this thing is too much for you; you are not able to perform it by yourself. Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you: Stand before God for the people, so that you may bring the difficulties to God. And you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and show them the way in which they must walk and the work they must do. Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. And let them judge the people at all times. Then it will be that every great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they themselves shall judge. So it will be easier for you, for they will bear the burden with you. If you do this thing, and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all this people will also go to their place in peace. So Moses heeded the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said.”
The deeds and doctrine of the Nicolaitans are manifested in the human organization where everyone is a teacher/(employer) and a student(employee/labourer). Doctrine and deeds.
“…place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens“.
In other words, everyone within the system is a conqueror and everyone within the system is conquered. This system created a mechanism for the Rider on the White Horse to perpetuate its agenda, in all political, religious and commercial organizations.
“He went out conquering and to conquer”.
And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
In contrast, the Body of Christ is not an Organization but a living Organism.
The Organism is revealed symbolically in the 12 tribes that were sealed.
And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.
Science has revealed that 12 is the number of systems in the Human Organism. Most scientific literature labels it as 11 because they classify the reproductive system as one but counting the two distinct reproductive systems makes the number 12.
The 12 tribes that are sealed has two main distinctions from the sons of Jacob.
- The tribe of Dan is missing.
- The tribe of Manasseh and Ephraim is replaced by Joseph and Manasseh – symbolically, this is a reference to the human reproductive system. Manasseh and Ephraim came out of Joseph. So did male and female came out of Adam.
The lesson here is that the Body of Christ is a Living Organism and not an Organization. All 12 tribes are sealed in equal measures, removing all physical distinctions, dissolving all genealogies and flattening all layers of hierarchy.
“All baptized into one body”.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus
Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.
1 Corinthians 12:12
For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For in fact the body is not one member but many.
