2nd Letter from John to “The Chosen Lady and her children”
The elder unto the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth; and not only I, but also all who know the truth,
2 for the sake of the truth which abides in us – and will be with us forever.
3 Grace be with you! Mercy and peace from El the Father, and from YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
4 I rejoiced greatly that I found some of your children walking in truth, just as we have received commandment from the Father.
5 And now I ask you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto you, but that which we had from the beginning: That we love one another!
6 And this is love: That we walk after His commandments! This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.
7 For many deceivers are entering into the world, who do not confess YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the opponent of Messiah.
8 Take heed unto yourselves, that you do not lose those things which we have accomplished, but that we receive a full reward.
9 Whoever transgresses, and abides not in the teaching of the Messiah, does not have Elohim. Those who abide in the teaching of the Messiah, have both the Father and the Son.
10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive them into your house, and do not give them a greeting;
11 for those that give them a greeting participate in their evil deeds.
12 Having many things to write unto you, I intend not to do so with paper and ink, but I hope to come to you, and speak face to face, so that our joy may be made full.
13 The children of your chosen sister greet you. Amen!
