NICOLAITAN SPIRIT
The Nicolaitan spirit says
Let us build a tower unto heaven
An edifice unto my own name
Let me be a king to the people
And control their every thought
Let me be the center of their lives
The pivot of their considerations
I will be to them the way to heaven

I will take their money and their time
I will live in luxury in the name of blessing
No one will be able to lift a finger
Unless I know of it
No one will have their own revelation
Unless I approve of it
No one will be able to use their gift
Unless I reap the benefit of it

If a person starts to get out of line
And starts to reason with the truth
I will say to the congregation
"That brother is going through at the moment, poor brother
If he is one of us God will show him the way
Perhaps he is under a lot of strain, lately, and is tired
Perhaps he needs to put something right
Perhaps he is getting too involved in the world"

Those that disagree with my methods
I will cast them out with twisted reasoning
Those remaining will be told to avoid them
If they return and grovel at my feet
And acknowledge they were at fault
I will let back but on observation
So those others will fear
And know I have complete control

I am drunk with my own importance
I will beat them with the rod of chastisement
I will say the Lord will not return until they are ready
That is why he is delaying his coming
There must be an Achan in the camp
That is why we are not going forward
Then everyone will point the finger at each other
And everyone will tell of the others fault

No one will ever quite reach the mark
I will give them the lesson of the stature of a perfect man
Like a carrot dangling in front of a donkey
They walk in circles and will never reach it
They will always be subject
They will always need me
They will always do my bidding
They will always be under my control

I will conquer the laity with the laws of tradition
Their lives will be grounded in the past
I will subdue all other spiritual gifts under mine
I will be the only one worthy of double honour
My dazzling personality will bewilder their sense of judgment
They will consider me the true power of God
No one will come to the God but by me
I will be in place of Christ, and darkness will again cover face of the deep.
