@page.3.2.6@bible.87.2.6!!!! 3.2.6 - Revelation  2:6  

hate the deeds
The Ephesian church had left their first love, but had not left their former hatred for evil. Their hatred for evil was the diametric opposite of the tolerance of the church in Pergamum toward the teachings and deeds of the Nicolaitans (Rev. 2:14-15+).1 God hates the deeds and the doctrine (Rev. 2:13+). God hates evil ways (Pr. 8:13), abominable activities (Jer. 44:4), a false oath (Zec. 8:17), and insincere offering (Jer. 44:4; Amos 5:21). Believers are to have no fellowship with such unfruitful works and are to expose them (Eph. 5:11; 2Jn. 1:9). Nicolaitans
See Nicolaitans.you hate . . . I also hate
Both verbs are in the present tense--both the Ephesian church and Jesus are in ongoing opposition to the works of the Nicolaitans.----
