The Lady Elect, Revealed
I tell you that in times past I have had great fondness for the King James version of the bible, but tonight I found out that it is weak in context compared to richness of the text with the words and names restored. Hence, I found out the Lady Elect has a name too. What do you know? Allow me to introduce her to you.
The elder, to a chosen Kuria and her children, whom I love in truth, because of the truth that stays in us and shall be with us forever.
Favor, compassion,peace be with you from Elohim the Father and from Master Yahushua Messiah, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
And now I ask you Kuria, not as though I wrote a fresh command to you but that which we have had in the beginning, that we love one another. (v. 1-3)
I’ll pause there for a minute because in Henry dictionary the writer describes the Lady Elect as a woman and her children and I would like to take this time to note that there have been several women mentioned by name in text and their plights or their duties or their devotion mentioned without fail which left no room to a guess as to who they were. So, in this instance…the so called woman has a name; Kuria. However, Kuria, I found upon research is not a woman as in female but a tribe in Africa.
What? Someone intentionally did not want us to know that this was so.
Here is what Henry says, ” The saluted – a noble Christian matron, and her children: To the elect lady and her children. A lady, a person of eminent quality for birth, education, and estate. It is well that the gospel ha got among such. It is a pity but lords and ladies should be acquainted with the Lord Christ and his religion. They owe more to him than others do; though usually not many noble are called. Here is a pattern for persons of quality of the same sex. The elect lady; not only a choice one, but one chosen of God. It is lovely and beautiful to see ladies, by holy walking, demonstrate their election of God. And her children; probably the lady was a widow; she and her children then are the principal part of the family, and so this may be styled an economical epistle.” (Henry, 2013)
Look at this:
The Kuria are an ethnic and linguistic group resident in the Tarime, Musoma, Bunda and Serengeti districts of the Mara Region in Northern Tanzania, and the west and east districts of the former Nyanza Province in southwest Kenya. In 2006 the Kuria population was estimated to number 609,000, with 435,000 living in Tanzania and 174,000 in Kenya.
The Kuria people are mainly agriculturalists and pastoralists, with the Kenyan Kurians leaning towards agriculture and the Tanzanian Kurians more towards pastoralism. The Kurians in the Serengeti district are distinctly pastoralist.
The Kuria are closely related to the Kisii people of Kenya both in language and physique. They are said[by whom?] to have been one people until a vicious attack by the Maasai in the early 19th century scattered both populations in different directions. This apartness has led to the formation of distinct dialects which are clearly understood by both peoples. The Kuria people are divided into about 16 “subtribes” or clans, namely: Nyabasi, Bakira, Bairege, Bagumbe (who reside in both Kenyan and Tanzanian districts), Batimbaru, Banyamongo, Bakenye, Baikoma, Bamerani, as well as several others. All this subtribes or clans are present in the kisii tribe of Kenya.
The Kuria tribe is also related to the Zanaki tribe of the Mara Province in Tanzania. They share some cultural aspects.
Verse 7, “Because many who are leading astray went out into the world who do not confess Yahushua Messiah as coming in the flesh. This one is he who is leading astray and is the Anti-Messiah. See to yourselves that we do not lose what we worked for, but that we might receive a complete reward.
Everyone who is transgressing and not staying in the teaching of Messiah does not possess Elohim.
