~ Testing the Spirits

1Jo 4:1  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try [test] the spirits whether they are of [from] God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

1Jo 4:2  Hereby know ye [This is how you can recognize] the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth [acknowledges] that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of [from] God:

1Jo 4:3  And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of [from] God: and this is that spirit of [the] antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1Jo 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them [spirits not of/from God]: because greater is he [God] that is in you, than he that is in the world.

[ Note that "he that is in the world" is Satan, the temporary ruler of this world and the head of principalities, powers, and rulers of the darkness of this world. ]

1Jo 4:5  They [spirits not of/from God] are of [from] the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

1Jo 4:6  We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us.  Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

~ God Is Love

1Jo 4:7  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

1Jo 4:8  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1Jo 4:9  In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1Jo 4:10  Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1Jo 4:11  Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

1Jo 4:12  No man hath seen God at any time.  If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

1Jo 4:13  Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

1Jo 4:14  And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

1Jo 4:15  Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

1Jo 4:16  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us.  God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

1Jo 4:17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

1Jo 4:18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

1Jo 4:19  We love him, because he first loved us.

1Jo 4:20  If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

1Jo 4:21  And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
