How You Are Controlled
The World Order is a delicately balanced network of artificial authorities that have been in place since Nimrod set them all up.
Scripture refers to this controlling network or order as "Babel."
It's a rebellious pattern of fertility behavior only perceived by those that have escaped from it. You will not see the world the same way after you have been shown how these rebellious authorities mesmerize those who submit to them.





or "Nicolaitans" and "Nikolaites"


LORDING OVER (CONQUERING) THE PEOPLE with mind control (strongholds)


Definition from (encyclopedia):

“The meaning of the name, "victors over the people" or "rulers over the world" suggests to some of these authors that the Nicolaitanes were among those who maintained that there must be a religious hierarchy to control the spiritual development of the nobility and common people; it is believed they were trying to set themselves up as controllers in a three-class system – one that would give them absolute control over the laity (common people), who would be completely dependent upon them for all spiritual knowledge, guidance, and access to (Yahuah).”

(Parenthetical term is my correction; author used “God” in sentence;

I also corrected their reference to a "two class" system to the actual "three class system", since I learned directly from the Jesuits themselves of their arrangement.)

Do Not Be Called Rabi

Rab is a Hebrew word best defined as chief. The word rabi means "my chief." Rabshakeh means "chief cupbearer." The men exalting or lifting themselves in rank above the common people set up their own teaching authority, and placed their yoke (teachings) on any who would submit to them as their chief. Rabbi is a status equal to the Hindu "guru," a spiritual guide to those seeking fulfillment. With this nicolaitane context defined, who wants to lift themselves with the title, rabi?




Yahuah has no headquarters on Earth. There is no succession, kingdom, or government that can be seen, or any line of apostolic authority.

Yahusha’s Spirit guides us into all Truth, not an organization or denomination.

Those who have received His Spirit are Israelites, and are to teach the nations Torah:

Mat 28:19,20  “Therefore, go and make taught ones of all the nations, immersing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Set-apart Spirit, teaching them to guard all that I have commanded you.

And see, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Amn.

(AMN is 3 Hebrew letters, Alef-Mem-Nun, a word indicating affirmation).


A three-class system, clergy over Nobility, and the common people (laity), is seen by many to be the core reason for the destruction of the original assemblies of Natsarim.  They seek to be recognized or distinguished from the "ordinary" folk, and often dress the part.  Appearances are most important to them, and their behavior is an act to be seen by men.   Hypocrisy and eye-service is condemned by Yahusha, as we shall see in this study.  They are playing a role, and expect that everyone should acknowledge their authority and status. 

They seek after titles and honors, and rule with costumes for greater effect. 

These verses escape their attention:

Mat 23:8 “But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi,’ for One is your Teacher, the Mashiak, and you are all brothers."

Luk 17:20,21 “And having been asked by the Pharisees when the reign of Alahim would come, He answered them and said, “The reign of Alahim does not come with intent watching,

nor shall they say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ For look, the reign of Alahim is in your midst!”


Mt. 12:25: “And Yahusha knew their thoughts, and said to them, “Every reign divided against itself is laid waste, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”


Mt. 18:1, The talmidim/students pondered the question of who the greatest among them was.

Mt. 20:21, The mother of the sons of Zabdai requested that they be seated on His right and left in the reign.


Rom. 16:17, We are to keep our eye on those who cause divisions. 

Mat 23:12 “And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.”



Mental strongholds can be broken by simply knowing they are there.

The first "belief" they promote is that they (Nicolaitanes) are the enlightened, and boast that they know Yahuah. 

Everyone else must do as they say.

2Co 10:4-6:  "For the weapons we fight with are not fleshly but mighty in Alahim for overthrowing strongholds, overthrowing reasonings and every high matter that exalts itself against the knowledge of Alahim, taking captive every thought to make it obedient to the Mashiak, and being ready to punish all disobedience, when your obedience is complete."

Luke 14 teaches us to take the “last place”.


Two key words used at 2Cor 10:4-6:

STRONGHOLDS: G3794 OCHUROMA  (figurative fortification): argument, concept, thought;

literally:  a castle, stronghold, fortress

figuratively:  anything on which one relies, such as the arguments and reasonings by which a disputant endeavors to fortify his opinion and defend it against his opponent.  A mindset or viewpoint is a "stronghold", and may be true or false.  If false, it needs to be overthrown with TRUTH.


IMAGINATIONS: (Greek) G3053 LOGISMOS  reasoning, imagination, computation


When someone hears you tell them the Truth, and their eyes glaze-over because their "stronghold" has them firmly bound, they might as well say,  

 “My mind is made up;  don’t confuse me with the facts.”  - unknown author



WINESKINS (vessels)



WINES  (teachings, including STRONGHOLDS)  



People untaught;  fresh, empty vessels ready for teaching



People taught, full vessels filled with the teachings received from other men, passed-along over time. 

Traditions and rules set up by men ferment within the vessel.



Teachings straight and fresh from Scripture, unmixed with men’s teachings.

The Truth overthrows the strongholds taught by Nicolaitanes.



Well established doctrines of men, aged over time and given legitimacy or “accreditation” through an organized faction, society, coalition, school, fellowship, or association.

These doctrines are riddled with strongholds to control and define denominations.


Examples of such factions having long-standing doctrinal positions (old wine) would be:

Rabbinical Judaism 

(Pharisees, from Talmudic teachings of Rabbi Akiba)


Mormons  (Teachings of Joseph Smith, book of Mormon)


Catholics  (Constantine/Councils, “sacraments”, rituals)


Islam, Sikh  (Teachings of Muhammad, 5 pillars)

SHAHADAH – no ‘god’ but Allah, and Muhammad is prophet

SALAH – pray at 5 fixed times daily (facing Mecca)

ZAKAH – alms giving

SAWM – fasting;  ritual, repentant, ascetic

HAJJ is a pilgrimage that occurs during the Islamic moon of Dhu al-Hijjah in the city of Mecca

Hindu, Buddhist  (reincarnation, Karma)


Rabbis, Imams, Popes, Gurus, Lamas, Shamans, spiritual auditors, and straw men with titles:



Lords over the people

(NIKO + LAITY, conquering the people)


Rev 2:12-17  “And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, ‘He who has the sharp two-edged sword, says this:

 ‘I know your works, and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is.  And you hold fast to My Name, and did not deny the belief in Me, even in the days in which Antipas was My trustworthy witness, who was killed near you, where Satan dwells.

 ‘But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teaching of Bilʽam, who taught Balaq to put a stumbling-block before the children of Yisharal, to eat food offered to idols, and to commit whoring.

 ‘So you also have those who adhere to the teaching of the Nikolaites, which teaching I hate.

 “Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

 ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.  To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat.  And I shall give him a white stone, and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.’”


The renewed Name: YAHUSHA

Acts 20

"Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Set-apart Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the assembly of Alahim which He has purchased with His own blood.

For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves shall come in among you, not sparing the flock.

Also from among yourselves men shall arise, speaking distorted teachings, to draw away the taught ones after themselves."

The Covenant /Marriage Contract (BRITH)  Ex 20:1-17

ASERETH HA’DABARIM (10 WORDS)  Yahuah’s Covenant, our wedding vows:


“And Alahim spoke all these Words:

1.  ‘I am Yahuah your Alahim, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

You shall have no other Alahim before My face.

2. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the Earth beneath or in the waters below.   You shall not bow down to them or worship them;  for I, Yahuah your Alahim, am a jealous Alahim, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand [ generations] of those who love Me and keep My Commandments.

3. You shall not cast (NASA, send) the Name of Yahuah your Alahim to ruin(SHOAH, destruction), for Yahuah will not hold anyone guiltless who casts His Name to ruin.

4. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it qodesh. 

Six days you shall labor and do all your work,  but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahuah your Alahim.

On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.  For in six days Yahuah made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and He rested on the seventh day.

Therefore Yahuah blessed the Sabbath day and made it qodesh.

5. Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land Yahuah your Alahim is giving you.

6. You shall not murder.

7. You shall not break wedlock.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house.  You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”


 “The secret of Yahuah is with those who fear Him, And He makes His Covenant known to them.”   Psa 25:14

Yahuah sets all those who reign with power in the world:

Dan 4:17 ‘This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the command by the word of the set-apart ones, so that the living know that the Most High is ruler in the reign of men, and gives it to whomever He wishes, and sets over it the lowest of men.’

E-meter, a primitive lie-detector with two cans to hold

Part of the “teachings” include this historical gem:

“75 million years ago, there was an alien galactic ruler named Xenu who was in charge of 76 planets in our sector of the galaxy, including planet Earth.”

Our problems are caused by the spirits of space aliens inhabiting our bodies.

Nicolaitanes are unnecessary;  we have direct access without auditors or guides:


Jn 14:12-15:  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he shall do also.  And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father.

And whatever you ask in My Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son.

If you ask whatever in My Name, I shall do it.

If you love Me, you shall guard My commands.”


Interpretation of meaning of the wine & wineskins as explained by Yahusha:


Beginning at Mat 9:14:  

“Then the taught ones of Yoḥanan came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your taught ones do not fast?”

And Yahusha said to them, “Are the friends of the bridegroom able to mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days shall come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they shall fast.

And no one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse.

Neither do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”

And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, otherwise the new wine bursts the wineskins, and the wine runs out, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine is to be put into fresh wineskins.”

And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, otherwise the new wine shall burst the wineskins and run out, and the wineskins shall be ruined.

But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.

And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new wine, for he says, ‘The old is better.’


What they were originally taught (old wine) is better to them.


DIVISIONS are not of Yahusha


Rom 16:17,18 “Now I call upon you, brothers, watch out for those who cause divisions and stumbling, contrary to the teaching (instruction, TORAH) which you learned, and turn away from them.

For such ones do not serve our Master Yahusha Mashiak, but their own stomach, and by smooth words and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the innocent.”


       Making a “name” for their “division” and the teachings they adhere to, is what is known as a “denomination today.  These divisions are defined by their individual names, and the doctrinal society they associate with.  Are these divisions endorsed by the Word?


1Co 1:10-13 “And I appeal to you, brothers, by the Name of our Master Yahusha Mashiak, that you all agree,

and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be knit together in the same mind and in the same opinion.

For I have been informed concerning you, my brothers, by those of the house of Chloe, that there are strifes (quarrels, variances, debates) among you.

What I mean is this, that each one of you says, “I am of Paul, or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Kefa,” or “I am of Mashiak.”

Has the Mashiak been divided? Was Paul impaled for you?

Or were you immersed in the name of Paul?”


We are to be one body, without divisions


1Co 3: “. . . for you are still fleshly. For since there is envy, and strife, and divisions among you, are you not fleshly and walking according to man?

For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not fleshly?

What then is Apollos, and what is Paul, but servants through whom you believed, as the Master assigned to each?


2Co 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not fight according to the flesh.

For the weapons we fight with are not fleshly but mighty in Alahim for overthrowing strongholds, overthrowing thoughts and every high matter that exalts itself against the knowledge of Alahim, taking captive every thought to make it obedient to the Mashiak.”


Fear drives the anger or rage between two sides of any disagreement.  Overcome the fear, and we conquer.


What weapon do we use on fear?


1Jn 4:18  “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear holds punishment, and he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”


   Our parents, family members, friends, teachers  -  are all indoctrinated from birth with “old wine”, which are the customs and traditions they have learned, filling them with doctrines and hierarchical programming.

They are familiar and comfortable with those “old teachings”, and they are held by Nicolaitane STRONGHOLDS.


   Nicolaitanes are not our intercessors, and WHEREEVER two or more are gathered, Yahusha is there with them. 

In every time and place, Yahusha is accessible to us all.


Mat 18:20: “For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst.”  The Oral Law, or Talmud requires a quorum of 10 men (Minyan).  Talmud is considered to be the codification of halakah, but Yahusha invalidated this idea.


Mat 24:23-27:  “‘If anyone then says to you, ‘Look, here is the Mashiak!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe.

For false Mashiaks and false prophets shall arise, and they shall show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones. See, I have forewarned you.

So if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe.

For as the lightning comes from the east and shines to the west, so also shall the coming of the Son of Adam be.’”


Be aware of the presence of the Nicolaitanes, yet respond in love.

The nine fruits of the Spirit:

Love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, kindness, and self-control.  (Gal. 5:22,23)


Rom 12:18  “If possible, on your part, be at peace with all men.”


   We don’t have to win or “be right” when there are doctrinal divisions, even though one side is right and the other wrong. 

The side that is “wrong” in their doctrine but loving, patient, kind, and respectful to the other side has learned more about Torah and its application than the side that may have the doctrine correct, yet is malicious and judgmental toward the other.   


   Division is the challenge, and love is the answer. 

This is why the humble will inherit the reign of Yahuah;  they put others before themselves.


   Contempt and disrespect are the opposite of deference and thoughtfulness for others.  We can disagree with someone, yet still show them sincere affection.  This is the best approach, in my opinion, for the son to take.  If he testifies in court, he should stick to facts, and not allow himself to take sides emotionally.  His mom can be wrong, or right, but he only needs to concern himself with remaining respectful and stick to the facts.  We can disagree with our parents, yet still maintain respect for them.


Seat of Moshah – obey what you hear being read from it.

but do not do as they do who read it.


   As you read the following, keep in mind that the NICOLAITANES are the cause for the corruption of the teachings, and establishing a

“two-class system.”


Mat 23:1-39:  “Then Yahusha spoke to the crowds and to His taught ones, saying,

‘The scribes and the Pharisees sit on the seat of Mosheh.

Therefore, whatever they say to you to guard, guard and do.

But do not do according to their works, for they say, and do not do.

For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders, but with their finger they do not wish to move them.

And they do all their works to be seen by men, and they make their tefillin wide and lengthen the tsitsith of their garments,

and they love the best place at feasts, and the best seats in the congregations,

and the greetings in the market-places, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’

But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi,’ for One is your Teacher, the Mashiak, and you are all brothers.

And do not call anyone on earth your father, for One is your Father, He who is in the heavens.

Neither be called leaders, for One is your Leader, the Mashiak.

But the greatest among you shall be your servant.

And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.

But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you shut up the reign of the heavens before men, for you do not go in, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you eat up widows’ houses, and for a show make long prayers. Because of this you shall receive greater judgment.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you go about the land and the sea to win one convert, and when he is won, you make him a son of Gehenna twofold more than yourselves.

Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the Dwelling Place, it does not matter, but whoever swears by the gold of the Dwelling Place, is bound by oath.’

Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the Dwelling Place that sets the gold apart?

And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, it does not matter, but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, is bound by oath.’

Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sets the gift apart?

He, then, who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all that is upon it.

And he who swears by the Dwelling Place, swears by it and by Him who is dwelling in it.

And he who swears by the heaven, swears by the throne of Alahim and by Him who is sitting upon it.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you tithe the mint and the anise and the cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the Torah: the right-ruling and the compassion and the belief. These need to have been done, without neglecting the others.

Blind guides – straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are filled with plunder and unrighteousness.

Blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and dish, so that the outside of them becomes clean too.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you are like whitewashed tombs which outwardly indeed look well, but inside are filled with dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.

So you too outwardly indeed appear righteous to men, but inside you are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in the blood of the prophets.’

Thus you bear witness against yourselves that you are sons of those

who did murder the prophets – and you fill up the measure of your fathers!

Serpents, brood of adders! How would you escape the judgment of Gehenna?

Because of this, see, I send you prophets, and wise men, and scholars of Scripture. Some of them you shall kill and impale, and some of them you shall flog in your congregations and persecute from city to city,

so that on you should come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Heḇel to the blood of Zekaryah, son of Barukyah, whom you murdered between the Dwelling Place and the altar.

Truly, I say to you, all this shall come upon this generation.

Yerushalayim, Yerushalayim, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to her! How often I wished to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, but you would not!

See! Your house is left to you laid waste,

for I say to you, from now on you shall by no means see Me, until you say, ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of Yahuah!’




You will know them by their fruits.  The Inquisition speaks volumes, and so do the actions of homicidal bombers.

Straw Man 


Mar 9:33-35:  “And they came to Kafar Nakum, and having come in the house He asked them, “What was it you disputed among yourselves on the way?”  And they were silent, for on the way they had disputed with one another who was the greatest.

And sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, 'If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.'”


Jeremiah / YirmeYahu 9:24

“ ‘but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am Yahuah, doing kindness, right-ruling, and righteousness in the earth.  For in these I delight,’ declares Yahuah."
