28 Days of Letters from Jesus

November 13 – Revelation 2:6-7

The Nicolaitans were a group of heretics that believed spiritual freedom meant an “anything goes” attitude toward life. Therefore, one could practice idolatry and immorality and still claim to follow Jesus. The Lord commended the Ephesian church for exposing this false teaching. 

Jesus closed this first letter with the promise that those who were faithful would eat of the tree of life. This reference is to the time when we will all be restored to perfect fellowship with God, the perfect fellowship that existed before sin entered the world.
