Commendations For Truth
The Apostle John who is suspected to be in his nineties wrote from his incarceration in codex that would be understood only by the intended party- the elect lady. While there is controversy about the title, the term “Elect” signifies the official relationship of the bride to Christ which is by reference also called the “Ecclesia” or the assembly of believers known as the “Church.” The historic emphasis that is often overlooked is the need to be covert when handling issues from the inside with commutations passed through the hands of others which could indict just by association those you love. John loved the churches he wrote to and commended the report of some members (referred to as her children) in their walk of Faith in Truth, he even refers to their sister church as an elect lady as well. Three things he points out as a highlighted paradigm for their commitment to Christ is Grace, Mercy, and Peace from God. True Grace, True Mercy, True Peace can only come from the source of all good things and can only be discovered by walking in Truth. Beware, self inflicted nonsense (SIN) comes in the personalized images that we recognize everyday ie. actor Will Smith, in a shooting exercise (similar to law enforcement training), shoots a little girl smiling holding an astrophysics book surrounded by ugly looking characters because he recognized that the real threat was not them but the oddity of a little innocent looking girl with an astrophysics book that required understanding far beyond her comprehension. There is a deep warning in this letter in whole, but if you walk in Truth, not truth; you will receive a harvest.
2 John 1:3-4
Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law.
‘Or Goyim, Light of the Nations, (Isaiah 42:6); for the unique way You reveal Truth to us, we in a spirit of oneness openly thank You. For all the gifts bestowed upon us collectively and individually we exuberantly shout with our combined voices praise for the Truth that will deliver us from the captors snare. We decree and declare eternal blessings upon those who walk in Your Grace, Mercy, and Peace, so that the report of the same will edify the Kingdom of God for everlasting life. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
