Masquerades in the Name of the Lord (2/3).

The word Nicolaitans is taken from two Greek words, "Nikaƍ,' meaning ‘conquering the people,’ and "Laos," meaning ‘to conquer.’ The doctrine of the Nicolaitans was one of clerical hierarchy superimposed upon the laity and robbing them of spiritual freedom. These people had no clue who Elijah was. They see themselves better. Their senses have been corrupted. Such are the ones spoken of in Matthew 7:21-23,
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
Be careful not to model your life after these lost souls. They are not on the way to heaven. Why do you suppose Jesus needed to be identified by Judas Iscariot. Would that have been needed if he masqueraded himself, or carried himself in such a way as to separate himself from his disciples? Not sure where today's masquerades got their wisdom from. Surely not from heaven.
