Carter The Doctrine of the Nicolaitanes... Rev. 2:6. The first vision to John in Patmos was of the Lord Jesus who gave him a message to each of the seven churches, the names of which are used symbolically and represent a series of seven periods and developments in the history of the Gospel Age Church.The message to the Church at Ephesus indicates what conditions obtained in the Church in the first years of its existence. Some laboured patiently in accordance with the teachings of the Apostles, while others among them left their first love and lost some of their zeal. One good thing among them commended them to the Lord - "Thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate". Nicolaitanes is a symbolic name. It means conquerors of the people, or those who would lord it over the people. Our Saviour warned the disciples not to strive to be greatest.The Apostles taught separateness from the world, and in the Church humility, in honour preferring one another. If there is one thing more than another that the Lord hates it is pride.Vain ambition, strife, envy, are all hateful, but pride and the domineering spirit are worst of all being diametrically opposite to the Holy Spirit.This fact, combined with the symbolic, name, Nicolaitanes, suggest that the Lord used it to indicate the mystery of iniquity which Paul described as in his day already existing and working among the believers, but the early church, constantly guided by the Apostles and by disciples trained by them, hated the deeds of the aspirants for place and power. Note:- "The abomination of desolution" could not stand in the holy place, "the man of sin" could not exalt himself in the "temple" the Truth, resisted his deeds, his machinations, or, as we would say today, his "wire-pulling". Meaning of Nicolaitanes. Strongs Concordance Nos 3528-3532, conquer, overcome, prevail, get the victory conquest, victorious over the people.This "victorious over the people" may be similar to John 3:9 of Diotrephes who loveth to have the pre- eminence among them, or those who lord it over others. "Victorious" or literally "conquerors" of the people, put the people under their authority.This authority they exercise and maintain by appointed governors who judge the people and enforce the will of the conquerors. The law of Christ forbids the exercise of such authority by christian over christian. 3 John 9:10, "I wrote to the church: but Diotrephes who loveth to have the pre-eminence among them, receiveth us not, wherefore if I (John) come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words; and not content therewith, neither doeth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would and casteth them out of the Church". 3578591AM WINTER SPECIAL Book with this coupon for...

Scalpels were swapped for clarinets and violins last Friday as Hutt health staff showed they could work together in an orchestra as well as the operat- ing theatre. The occasion was the official opening of stage 1 of an $82 million development at Hutt Hospital, and the first public outing of an orchestra featuring nurses, surgeons, orderlies and administrators. They started practising in April, with the goal of performing at the opening of the new Emergency Department in mind. Health Minister Tony Ryall said they d set a new standard for the opening of health facili- ties. After hearing their perfect harmony, HVDHB chief execu- tive Graham Dyer said it was no mystery why he hadn t been invited to join the associated choir. So much more room would have been the most repeated comment inside, as the official party took a tour of the new ED, assessment planning unit, equipment sterilisation facility, mortuary and eight operating theatres. As an example of the differ- ence: the old ED had 13 treat- ment cubicles; the new one has 35.In several rooms, big screen televisions hang on walls where clinicians can instantly call up the electronic records and digitised X-ray and other images of patients, instead of having to thumb through paperwork. Mr Dyer said the new facili- ties are world class and staff who had been so patient in cramped conditions are eagerly awaiting the migration into the new building. The public got a chance for guided tours on Saturday. The new ED becomes operational next Monday, and the new theatres a week later. HVDHB chairwoman Virginia Hope noted that in early documents, Hutt Hospital was referred to as the emergency hospital. That s because it was opened in 1945 to cope with the influx of wounded returning soldiers who were straining resources at Wellington Hos- pital. Its casualty department consisted of five rooms off a cor- ridor, a bathroom and a steam tent room. In the 1960s the porters office was demolished to make way for an ambulance bay. The department was renamed Accident and Emerg- ency and the casuals who used to see casualty were encouraged to see their own doctor. Dr Hope said in the last decade there has been growing recognition that where possible, care should occur in the com- munity, and the scope of work done by GPs, nurses and at after-hours services has widened substantially. Hutt Hospital s old ED was built to cope with an annual caseload of 15,000 but in the last few years staff have handled significantly more than 45,000 patients each year. Though the new one has been built to manage this number, the last thing we want is to be equally swamped in a few years time. Dr Hope urged people to use the Hutt Valley s 24-hour nurse triage service -- accessible by phoning your GP surgery -- to get information on how urgently they need to be seen and where they should go . Peter Glensor, the former HVDHB chairman under whose watch the project was initiated, said its opening -- and the new intensive care, endoscopy and medical day-stay units due to open mid-next year -- means we are in a very strong and able position to move forward into the new world, [one that] involves stronger, deeper and more active collaboration with our neighbours, particularly Capital & Coast and Wairarapa DHBs, but also the rest of the central region . Play away the ED fear A special feature of the new Hutt Hos- pital building is the Tree Hutt, a section of the emergency department especially for the 9000 children who come in each year. Kicked off by the passion of emergency nurse specialist Stephanie Beddis, and the $10,000 she was granted by Gareth Morgan after winning the New Zealand s Hardest Working Nurse competition, the kids ED features colourful critters and plants from New Zealand nature drawn on walls, a child-operated train running around a track at ceiling level, and toys, books and other equipment designed to distract the youngsters from the stressful and unfamiliar hospital environment. Ms Beddis said she d first seen how toys and play therapy could be used by hospital staff to calm children down and help them to be more willing to allow clinicians to carry out procedures at a hospital in Alice Springs, Australia. On her initiative, toys and books were put into the old Hutt Hospital ED, but the new dedicated rooms are a quantum leap forward. Her dream now is to drum up funding for a play therapist. The Silverstream Lions boosted her $10,000 with another $15,000 and many others put in hours of expertise that have been valued at $100,000-plus. Designer Ann Wyatt and award- winning illustrator Rachel Driscoll helped create the fun Tree Hutt environ- ment. A trust has been set up to raise funds for further improvements and for training of emergency nurses and other staff.
