Jesus will make war against...
But I have a few things against you: You have some people there who follow the teaching of Balaam, who instructed Balak to put a stumbling block before the people of Israel so they would eat food sacrificed to idols and commit sexual immorality. In the same way, there are also some among you who follow the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Therefore, repent! If not, I will come against you quickly and make war against those people with the sword of my mouth. (Revelation 2:14-16 NET)
The Word says that Jesus Himself will make war against those who follow the teaching Balaam (the false prophet) of committing sexual immorality ("it's ok to masturbate, watch porn, sleep with your girl/boy friend" etc). And maybe actual stumbling block is actually the lack of teaching due to the lack of teaching on holiness, and the preparation of the bride?
And those who eat food sacrificed to idols. But what is this? Because we know that it's what comes out of a man that makes him unclean (Mark 7:20). Could it be that there is teaching (food) going on in the church that is actually "sacrificed" to idols? Wrong teaching by false prophets like Balaam. Is this one of the stumbling blocks Jesus is talking about here? The Word says that there will be itching ears in the last days (preachers will tell people what they want to hear), is that what this means?
Let us have ears to hear and always line up what we are taught against the Word of God and discern for errors, and pray for grace and faith to overcome these things.
