About 2nd and 3rd John

2John 1:1 The elder unto the elect lady.(nothing more known about this woman, other than she appears to be in a matronly position in the church in that city).and her children, whom I love in the truth and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;

2John 1:4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of your children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

2John 1:5 And now I beseech you, lady.(verse 1), not as though I wrote a new commandment unto you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

2John 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment.(love), that, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it..(how?.Matthew 22:36-40)

2John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world who confess not that Emmanuel the Christ is come in the flesh.(or more correctly 'comes in flesh'; that is, in our flesh, in us). This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

2John 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought.(the higher consciousness things of the spirit that are in eternity), but that we receive a full reward.

2John 1:9 Whosoever transgresses and abides not in the doctrine.(the teaching).of Christ, has not God. He that abides in the doctrine.(1Timothy 6:3; ).of Christ.(?), he has both the Father and the Son.(*).

Huh? what about the Holy Spirit, what happened to the so-called.trinity here? and what does having both the Father and the Son mean? and this verse here says to abide in the teachings of Christ, yet in Hebrews 6:1 it says to move from them?

2John 1:10 If there come any unto you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house.(a saying to be wary of those with deceiving messages), neither bid him Godspeed.

2John 1:11 For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Verse 10 above and this one do not mean that you are not to be kind to people who may not spiritually think as you do, so always be honest with people, yet avoid encouraging them in their pathway if you see them on the road of error and stay away from wasting your time on those coming to convince you of their religious stance when you know they are close-minded about their beliefs; avoid getting further involved:.Hosea 4:17; Proverbs 19:27; there was a time previous to how we now think that was different for us too:.Romans 12:18; Hebrews 12:14.

2John 1:12,13 Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink, but I trust to come unto you and speak face to face, that our joy may be full. The children of your elect.(simply means she is also a believer:.1Timothy 4:12; who are the elect?).sister greet thee. Amen.

3John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers..(or, to put it another way 'My wish is for you to prosper in your physical living by seeing that your spiritual life produces that':.Philippians 4:8; 2Peter 1:3)

3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

3John 1:5 Beloved, you do faithfully whatsoever you do to the brethren.(spiritual).and to strangers.(those not yet out of their ego level).

3John 1:7 Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.

3John 1:8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellow helpers to the truth.

3John 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that does good is of God, but he that does evil has not seen.(or as original has it, means perceived).God.

3John 1:12 Demetrius has good report of all men and of the truth itself. Yea and we also bear record and you know that our record is true.
