The teachings of the Nicolaitans…The Thing God Hates!
I have been looking at how to present a mountain of truth that has happened since the first followers of the way of the Lord and been delayed in trying to present it for it is vast and complicated with many mysteries. To throw it out there without the basis it was built on is like presenting a pyramidal pinnacle alone, without all of its’ foundation stones. The point would be lost…literally. For to make a “point” without the stones that support it… appears only as a pricking needle. Something to jab you with. That being said, even so with all the stones layered in their place to reach its’ top.. it is still hard to grasp. For how does one prove the psyche? The struggle within the mind, let alone the mind itself? This knowledge between good and evil is ever haunting with whispers of deceit. And once a mind is made up, there is no moving it to the left or to the right, even with sound knowledge and visual proof, so forget anything ancient or historic…for that has already been rewritten and hidden beneath the archives of truth, that only enchanting symbols embedded on their own sacred structures tell the story for those who have eyes to see. And even among their own, many things are yet secret and held sacred for only a few and often times but one.
Illuminati Confirmed: Secret society holds rituals at Bell Tower to shape time
By Joseph Avila -April 3, 2016
“Not too many people truly believe in what humans are capable of doing but it’s very possible, when culled at the right place and at the right time, to manipulate spiritual power for one’s own benefit. The other branches of the Illuminati have done a terrific job at making most of the Western world averse to the believability of these ideas, so kudos to them,” Nola II explained. Illuminati Confirmed: Secret society holds rituals at Bell Tower to shape time – Highlander (highlandernews.org) In the light of day, they simply don’t hide it anymore!
Then, after near a week of trying to glean the meat of the message, and near believing to forget it for it only breeds more confusion… behold, the snake and the venom jab has led the way… it actually laid many layers of the foundation I was forever trying to figure out how to lay in order to begin to present the message. But first…let it be said and known…
“They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
And who would have known that Marina Abramovic’s Opera titled “7 Deaths of Maria Callas” set to premiere April 11, 2020 at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich would be derailed by the same venom?
“Abramovic plays opposite the Hollywood actor Willem Dafoe. These feature symbols that recur in Ms. Abramovic’s work — knives, snakes, fire, clouds — and by the opera’s climax, the identities of the two women have become so confused, it’s hard to know which diva it’s really about.”The Coronavirus Derails Marina Abramovic’s Maria Callas Opera – The New York Times (nytimes.com)
But now we are beginning to see through the fog of war and the initiation phases…but who would know, I’m sure they thought they were sly and of course the sheep are merely ready for the slaughter after their rituals….or so they believe.
So where I had become lost and frustrated in where to even begin to present what was tugging at me to present, this information not only laid several foundation layers, it led the way. For to understand the enemy… and the battle…we have to know how it uses its’ weapons against us. Jung fit right in as a giant leap forward, and the first step. For we are fighting against followers of the dark side of the serpent. A battle against those who esteem it from ancient times and are just as determined to bring their gods out to be revered as those who Love Christ are determined to usher in the Kingdom of God. This is the battle from the beginning in the garden and we are now at the final hour… will humanity awake and know the truth of the Lord God almighty and his eternal love and promise to Adam and to Abraham and all his seed? To be our God and we shall be His people through the ultimate sacrifice to all through the death and resurrection of His only begotten Son, Yahshua, the Christ. Our High Priest forever by the order of Melkizedek, through Him, and Him only comes our salvation to have life ever lasting.
The Lord set up his Kingdom and has said the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Mathew 16: 8 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” These gates have opened wide to lure souls into its’ lasting condemnation and the Lord has said its’ path is wide, and told us to enter into the straight gate. Matthew Chapter 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at:”
So now let us look at this wide path to the gates of hell. What happened to the word of God when the Apostles first set out to attest to the truth of the salvation of the Lord among the gentiles (which means nations) who had been taught religious practices of a plethora of ancient pagan gods and goddesses, and how to pay homage and sacrifice to each god and goddess. The Holy Spirit is what set the truth apart from the lies of pagan false gods made of wood, and stone and evil could not touch it, nor possess it forever!
Ever so amazing was the power of the Holy Spirit to all that a sorcerer named Simon Magnus which meant “great one” came to see how the masses turned out in great number to hear the word of God and to receive this power from the Holy Spirit promised to all who believed and followed the way of the Lord. Of which even though Simon had come and said he believed, and was baptized with water, he did not feel it nor possess it. He reduced himself to offering money to Peter to buy it. Which Peter, outraged at the Sorcerers boldness cursed him for it.
Acts 8:9–13: “9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. 12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.
Acts 8:18-23: 18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
Now this did not stop Simon the Sorcerer from incorporating the concepts of the teachings of the followers of the way into his practice. Not at all. He even claimed to be a great apostle and even claimed to be taught all the secrets of the heavens of God almighty. He blended his version of Jesus the Messiah into his teachings and sold the word of God for money. He was one of the first prosperity preachers…the more you give the more you gain. He taught his own interpretations and made them sound so convincing as he performed fake healings and fake rising from the dead, fake miracles that he performed with magic and assistance from those he hired to help him do such things in the name of the Lord Jesus and to God.
He began to derive his own teachings called gnostic which blended the paganism with the followers of the way. Performing as he traveled throughout the region performing miracles for money and gold. He found a great eagerness in Rome for there were many there now curious of the new Christian ways and so he went to Rome and established himself there. He found new followers of the way and convinced them that he had the greater powers of the Holy Spirit and he was taught by the apostle Simon Peter and had grown to be even greater than he in wisdom and in the ways of the Lord. He taught them many things that were different from the teachings of the Lord and said, these were the mystery teachings that only the apostles knew and he would sell such knowledge for a price, for God’s servants deserved pay for their service from those who received it. For God would bless them in other ways in their lives by them providing to Simon their offerings of great price, for great was the gifts of the word he had for them, and even greater were his miracles. It wasn’t long and he became the Christ himself, on earth in his place to be marveled. Some say, the first Pope…god on earth in His absence. Like the pharaohs in the absence of Nimrod/Osiris in Egypt.
Does this sound familiar?
Now these teachings came to be taught by others also profiting off of the faith and came to be known as the teachings of the Nicolaitans. Here is some of the back story on Simon Magnus and his teachings at the time of the Lord.
Simon was from the region in Samaria which was the city that became the capital of the northern kingdom of Israel after the death of King Solomon and the breaking away from David’s Kingdom, Judah. King Jeroboam reigned over what was to be called the northern kingdom of Samaria. He set out to secure his throne with a different religious order, and led his people into pagan idolatry, which set the precedence for the succeeding kings to do likewise for several generations, until God finally gave them over to the captivity of Assyria.
2 Kings 17:24 “Then the king of Assyria brought people from Babylon, Kuthah, Avva, Hamath and Sepharvaim and settled them in the towns of Samaria to replace the Israelites. They took over Samaria and lived in its towns.”
As time passed, many of the new inhabitants from different lands decided it would be best if they feared the God of Israel; and they mixed the true religion of Yahweh God with the various pagan religions of their own. It states in 2Kings 17:41, “So these nations feared the LORD, yet served their idols; their children likewise, and their grandchildren continued as their fathers did, even to this day.”
This mix of the Babylonian Mysteries, blended with the religion of Yahweh became the tradition of those in Samaria along with other pagan nations who kept to their own gods that lived among them. After many Israelites returned from exile, their intermingling with the new gentile inhabitants of Samaria caused religious conflicts between the southern kingdom of Judah and the northern branch of Samaria. The Jews despised the half-breed Samaritans with their corrupted religion, while the Samaritans claimed to be the true descendants of Jacob (John 4:12).
Sound familiar? Denominations are actually separations, and generally blended with man made ideas and concepts. Some even go so far as to include many of the pagan practices of the ancients. So when the Lord did away with the old practices that were a shadow of things to come and set up his Kingdom, there were yet those, who incorporated the new with the old the same as was done in the past.
So, now we have Simon Magus adding his version of the teachings of Yeshua to his religious practices. Blending the two together, which came to be known as gnostic teachings and that of the Nicolaitans…because of Nicolas also teaching the gnostic versions of blending the old pagan traditions with the teachings of the Messiah.
In John Chapter 4, Jesus spoke to the woman at the well to set her on the right path for these had religion and knew not of the faith but believed they had both.
John 4:13-14: 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Jesus the Messiah reached out to offer salvation to Samaria – and redirected them away from their false teachings when he said, “You (Samaritans) worship, you know not what and pointed the difference being that SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS” – and not of the blending of pagan teachings and traditions with it.
John 4:21-26: 21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
So that is the backstory of Samaria which claimed to have the “true religion” – who actually did not even know who they were worshiping. And yet, the Lord offered salvation to them all who would worship God in spirit and in truth through drinking of the living water of the Messiah.
Unfortunately Simon Magus would revive the Jewish-Samaritan schism of old with his quasi-christian cult centered in Rome. Yet, his Universal Religion, which was more indulging of pleasure and less demanding of complete repentance and true conversion, had great appeal to a broader scope of society. (As it still does this very day). So his movement became anti-Jewish (ignoring the very roots of the Christian faith it so claimed), yet became a wide gate for the pagan society of the Roman world to enter into. And very profitable for Simon.
Which lead us to the teachings of the Nicolaitans which thing the Lord does hate. These are the Gnosticism teachings. Jesus said to the church at Ephesus:
Revelations 2:5-7: “5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. 6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”
These Gnostics who were causing the problems in Ephesus were characterized in three ways by the apostle John. They were false prophets, deceivers, and antichrists. These false teachers had broken with the true church and had “gone out into the world”.
1st John 4:1-3: “1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
THUS, SATAN ENTERS INTO THE CHURCH…
One of the most learned and expert writers on Christianity, Eusebius of Caesarea had stated that Satan, AKA Simon Magus was shut off from using persecution against Christians “he devised all sorts of plans, and employed other methods in his conflict with the Church, using base and deceitful men as instruments for the ruin of souls and as ministers of destruction.
Instigated by him, impostors and deceivers, assuming the name of our religion, brought to the depth of ruin such of the believers as they could win over, and at the same time, by means of the deeds which they practiced, turned away from the path which leads to the word of salvation those who were ignorant of the faith.”
He traces heresy from the Biblical figure of Simon Magus (Acts 8:9-29) through Menander to both Saturnius of Antioch and Basilides of Alexandria. Following Irenaeus, Eusebius says “Basilides, under the pretext of unspeakable mysteries, invented monstrous fables, and carried the fictions of his impious heresy quite beyond bounds.” (wikipedia)
They were said by some authors to be the followers of Nicolas. However, this group all connect to a Gnostic arch-heretic named Cerinthus (Nicholas) and his followers, the Cherethims (Also called Nicolaitans, Nicolaites, Simoniacs, Phoenicians, Jews, Corinthians or Cretans) who were all Gnostics from the Holy Island of Crete.
Our modern day Gnostic Spirit Cooker Abramovic and her orphic egg, wired up in the spirit of Simon Magus is quiet revealing, especially with the wolves devouring the flesh below. The Orphic Egg in the Ancient Greek Orphic tradition is the cosmic egg from which hatched the primordial hermaphroditic deity Phanes/Protogonus, who in turn created the other gods. The egg is often depicted with the serpent-like creature, Ananke goddess of fate, wound about it. The dangling snakes definitely look like they have cracked it in the shadows.
One of the major sins, simony which is the act of buying an ecclesiastical office, is named for this magician who clashed with the apostle Peter. It gets worse. In the early Christian apocrypha, he is the common enemy who inspires the feuding factions within the earliest church to unite in opposition. According to the church fathers of the second, third and fourth centuries, Simon Magus is the founder of all Christian heresies, including Gnosticism, and the champion of all wrong thinking and blasphemous worship. In the 14th century, Dante deposited him head first, in a pit, in the eighth circle of Hell. Surely, a villain of this magnitude deserves our attention.

These various names of Gnostic Sects were used by various Church Fathers to actually designate their own people and race into specific groups who we can safely say they were all also primarily of Cretan ancestry. These Gnostics of Cretan (Phoenician, Minoan, Greek Hellene or Jewish) ancestry, just like the Church founders were an Israelite priest cast whose ancestors originally cameto Crete from Egypt with their Phoenician Prince Cadmus. The difference is that the Gnostics of the Church had secretly called themselves Sethians which is a name derived from Kittim or Chittim which we identify today as among those who desire to RESET the world, the Khazarian Oligarchs.
These have their own desire to bring their Lucifer out into the light and practice their dark rituals in the light of day. Illuminati is another name for many of the secret societies these gather within, and there are many. The Jesuit teachings match more closely as they include God in their cult sphere and learn from all the books that were deemed unorthodox by the same council of Nicea and early church that save them to be read by those of their order.
Which lead us to the book of the Acts of Peter. Where we learn of Simon Magus and his showdown with the Apostle Simon Peter and how the martyred death of Simon Peter was fulfilled.
I include a link to the entire book of the Acts of Peter from the ancients who passed it on and include only a reduced story of the account of the showdown of Simon against Simon and what took place in the Circus Maximus, and the death of Peter thereafter, in the Circus, as the book is very long. I also include the link to the acts of Peter and Paul which most render the more accurate report of the matter.
The Acts of Peter
From “The Apocryphal New Testament”
M.R. James-Translation and Notes
Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1924
According to the lost book of Acts of Peter, and some other sources, Simon Magus, in an attempt to demonstrate his power, hurled himself off a tall structure and seemed to be floating in the air while Peter (and some sources say it was Paul) was on his knees praying and commanding the spirits to drop him, whereby Simon fell to his death. When Emperor Nero arrived back in town to learn of the death of his most favored Simon, he ordered Peter to be crucified in his circus.
The story behind the scenes go that Simon had help inside the tower with assistants who controlled wires allowing Simon to appear to be flying in the air afar off. He did this a lot to marvel the crowds. On this fatal day, there were problems in the tower and the wires failed him and sent Simon falling to the ground where he broke his leg in 3 places and the doctors could not heal him, and he died.
There are many versions of the story, but the fact remains in all of them that Simon the Sorcerer fell to his death in his act to fool the people one last time declaring that he was with all the powers of Jesus the Christ bestowed upon him. Which he had none.
This photo seems to depict it all. A failed Simon falling while the devil sneers and the people believe he held the keys to the kingdom. And gave them over to the demonic realm thanks to NERO who was quite entertained by his mysteries and angered to have him fall to his death. So of course, blame another, and death to them all.
There are many Catholic paintings which have served to propagate this story, though there is controversy of whether it was Peter or Paul or both. One thing for certain, is both passed away and Simon fell to his death as a statue was erected by Nero and placed in Rome to honor him, while Peter died crucified upside down on a cross and Paul was beheaded in Rome. Yet confused and blended together by those who skew history the same as we watch those of the same mindset do the same this very day. It is certain that the name & Apostolic authority of Peter was mixed & confused with the legend & pagan tradition of Simon Magus in a concoction which developed into the Papacy.
Just as the death of Peter and all the other Apostles by no means marked the end of Christianity, so it was that Simon’s Universal Church of Rome continued on. Indeed, Roman Catholicism to this day has Simon Magus’s signature written all over it. Much has been documented about this man who has been called ‘the Great Heretic’ and ‘Father of Gnosticism’ with the adverse effects of his hybrid religion of the Babylonian Mysteries blended with elements of the Christian faith and brought together officially by Constantine the Great who demanded the religions be merged together at the Council of Nicaea and then went about to build the first basilica for the church, ironically in the same place as the Circus Maximus once stood. That story is fantastic in and of itself and will be forthcoming in another article.
It has been said, their symbols will be their downfall.
No matter what they do, the patterns have been the very same and the serpent is involved in all of their ceremonies. They show us everything they are going to do and all that they have done. They mount their achievements on stone for all to remember. They are an arrogant bunch. But, then again, pride does goeth before a fall.
The Old Testament is filled with verses describing our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ as a “Rock”. See Deuteronomy 32:4; 1 Samuel 2:2; Psalms 18:2; Psalms 28:1.
Paul also states in 1 Corinthians 3:11 that “no other foundation can be laid other than the one already laid which is Christ Jesus.” What is a building built upon? It’s a FOUNDATION right? So the “Rock” that Jesus said He would build His church on is the very foundation of the church, which is Christ Jesus crucified. Think about it. How can the Christian church be built upon a sinful man, Peter? There is nothing to build upon with Peter, because salvation requires faith in Christ Jesus alone, and Him crucified for our sins. THAT is the “rock”, the rock of calvary. There is NO OTHER foundation that the church can be built upon. And if we attempt to build a church on a sinful man, then that church will end up falling, just like Babylon has fallen! Because she built her foundation upon the sand, rather than the TRUE rock, which is Christ Jesus. https://www.end-times-prophecy.org/was-peter-first-pope.html
