Elect

Day and night you were anxious for the whole brotherhood, that the number of God’s elect might be saved with mercy and a good conscience. Clement of Rome (A.D. 96) ch.2

And we will ask, with instancy of prayer and supplication, that the Creator of the universe may guard intact unto the end the number that has been numbered of His elect throughout the whole world, through His beloved Son Jesus Christ, through whom He called us from darkness to light, from ignorance to the full knowledge of the glory of His Name. Clement of Rome (A.D. 96) ch.59

But the white portion is the coming age, in which the elect of God shall dwell; because the elect of God shall be without spot and pure unto life eternal. Hermas (A.D. 150) Ante-Nicene Fathers vol.2 pg. 18
