“And the king sat upon his seat, as at other times, even upon a seat by the wall: and Jonathan arose, and Abner sat by Saul’s side, and David’s place was empty. Nevertheless Saul spake not any thing that day: for he thought, Something hath befallen him, he is not clean; surely he is not clean.” – I Samuel 20:25-26
We find here in this story from the first book of Samuel that Saul is seeking to destroy David out of jealousy. We would see if we read the preceding chapters that Saul made attempts on David’s life. David behaved himself wisely with the realization that there is but one step between himself and death. In light of these facts, David felt that discretion dictated that he not attempt the king’s feast for his nobles and princes. Therefore, when the feast was put on, we find that Abner, Jonathan and King Saul was there, but David’s place was empty.

Have you ever wondered who the "Nicolaitans" were, mentioned in the book of Revelation? Whoever they were, Jesus loathed their doctrine and hated their deeds. Let's delve into this subject today to see if we can ascertain the identity of this group. What was their damnable doctrine? What deeds were they committing that elicited such a strong reaction from Jesus?
It is truly amazing to me how Satan will always try to pass his most evil schemes off as the most innocent, humanitarian efforts. Do not let Satan’s mask of innocence cloud your thinking or stop you from identifying evil for what it is, EVIL. You stick to the old King James Bible, and the moral values found therein, and you will never go wrong.
Just the other day I was reading report from fox news about a pizza restaurant in North Carolina. As a matter of fact, read the article for yourself…
