meaning of elect, according to the Gospel.
The 'Elect' are the persons whom have believed the Gospel, have repented and have baptised in the name of Jesus Christ,
as Jesus has demanded they do. The proof we
read in the following excerpts:
And shall not
God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he
bear long with them?

Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit,

3: 8 But
now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy
communication out of your mouth.
3: 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the
old man with his deeds;
3: 10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in
knowledge after the image of him that created him:
3: 11 Where
there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision,
Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
3: 12 Put

quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
17: 14 KJV

fight with the
Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, because he is Lord of lords,
and King of kings, and they that are with him are called, and elect, and faithful.
It is very clear that the writers and speakers communicate to the
Christians and not to any other people who we can identify as 'Elect'.
More proof we receive from the following quote from Jesus:
Many are called but few are chosen! We are all called to believe
without to see, then repent and baptise for the remission of sin, thus
receiving the gift of the holy ghost. Many hear, but they do not
and so they are called, but are not chosen, for they deny the truth.
MAT 22: 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
MAT 20: 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are

knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should

Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were
given unto him of my Father. (Cliff: 'Elected').

Through the ages Catholics
and other Nicolaitans tried to defy the above quotation by Jesus, oppressing
and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more, but they have not
and shall not prevail against 'His Church'.
