Elect The elect are those who love God with all their hearts and live lives that are pleasing to Him. Those who live such lives of discipleship will one day be selected by the Lord to be among His chosen children. If it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect, Matt. 24:24. John rejoiced because the children of the elect lady were true and faithful, 2 Jn. 1. Thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou art an elect lady, D&C 25:3. Mine elect hear my voice and harden not their hearts, D&C 29:7. Even so will I gather mine elect from the four quarters of the earth, D&C 33:6. Scriptures shall be given for the salvation of mine own elect, D&C 35:20–21. Those who magnify priesthood callings become the elect of God, D&C 84:33–34. For the elect’s sake, the days of tribulation shall be shortened, JS—M 1:20.
