Very Elect

But who is the very elect exactly?

Matthew 24:24

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

I mean, it could be said that anyone could be a very elect person, couldn't it? Doesn't make quite much sense to me. I mean, if anyone can be the very elect, does that mean one of the higher ups can be deceived, or will be deceived? They're high up in the church, if they are deceived and one is told to follow the prophet, then what happens exactly?

... and their innocent blood on the floor of Carthage jail is a broad seal affixed to "Mormonism" that cannot be rejected by any court on earth ... D&C 135:7
