1 The zachen to the chosen elect lady Kuria and her children, whom I love in The Emet; and not I only, but also all they that have known The Emet;
2 For the emet’s sake, which dwells in us and shall be with us le-olam-va-ed.
3 Chen be with you, rachamim and shalom, from Abba and from The Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach, The Son of Abba, in emet and ahava.
4 I rejoiced greatly because I found your children having their halacha in emet, as we have received the same commandment from The Abba.
5 And now I beseech you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment to you, but that which we had from Beresheeth, that we love one another.
6 And this is ahava, that we have our halacha after His mitzvoth. This is The Mitzvah, as you have heard from Beresheeth, that you should have your halacha in it.
7 For many deceivers have entered into the olam hazeh, who confess not that YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach has come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an anti-Moshiach.
8 Shomer yourselves, that we lose not those things for which we have worked and attained, but that we receive a full reward.
9 Everyone committing Torah violation, by not staying in the teaching of Moshiach, has not Ahloha. He that stays in the teaching of Moshiach has both The Abba and The Son.
10 If anyone comes to you and brings not this teaching, receive him not into your bayit, neither offer him shalom:
11 For he that greets him even with a shalom, is a partaker of his wicked works.
12 Having many things to write to you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come to you and speak panayim-el-panayim, that our simcha may be full.
13 The children of your elect sister greet you. Ahmein. X
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:1 John ‑ representing the House of Judah.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:1 Kuria ‑ representing the House of Efrayim.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:1 Efrayim’s multitudes.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:1 The common bond that unites both houses in truth and love. Both Kuria and her children and all those with John.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:2 The truth of the kingdom restored which is an everlasting truth.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:4 Through Messiah, Judah learns to rejoice greatly with Efrayim’s return and position in the truth of restoration.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:4 Torah.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:5 Efrayim.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:5 Torah.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:5 That is what Messiah came to do. To end the war between the two houses.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:6 YAH wants us to walk in this truth of Israel’s redemption and healing that dates back to the Book of Genesis.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:7 Brother Judah warning returning Efrayim not to become so caught up in being like Judah, that she gives up and forfeits her elect status as Messiah’s redeemed. Even in those days, just as today in larger numbers, many who are Efrayim have such a zeal for anything perceived to be Jewish, that they even go so far as denying Messiah as YAH manifested as The Son of YAH. Note the tender care and affection of the elder sister.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:8 It is up to the individual Yisraelite to guard the truth of YAH coming in the flesh as Messiah. It’s not only the job of the rabbi, or spiritual leader. It’s your job. Today, just as back then, Efraimites and Jews are tossing in their elected lady status for a bowl of lentils and some orthodox tzitzit/ fringes.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:9 Let this verse be the clearest and most clarion of all warnings to both chosen sisters. Any doctrine that denies Messiah as YAH manifested in the flesh commits sin and is a violator of the Torah they claim to trust. The actual denial of Messiah by either house, especially returning Efrayim, results in that poor nephesh not having The Father either. John deals with many falling away, even as we do today. They were falling away from the true Nazarene faith, since there was no false church system to fall away from in those days.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:10 Plurality of divinity (biblical monotheism) and the divinity of Messiah.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:10If someone is known as a denier of Messiah and the truth that He is YAH’s Only begotten Son (and not just another Name for The Father, or any similar perversion), as a believer, we are forbidden to allow him entry, or even to say a hearty “welcome.” In this manner, both elected ladies will protect themselves. Of course Judah in the person of John, is seen as being the caring and older guardian of newly returning Efrayim.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:11 Very personal, plain and chilling.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:12 Just the way it should be. Judah and Efrayim face to face.
2ᵑͩ JOHN 1:13 One elect sister writing to another. A continuation of the two twisted sisters of Ezekiel 23, becoming straightened out in righteousness by the truth of Messiah and His kingdom.
