1 John 4, Friends, don’t always believe everything you hear just because someone says it is a message from God: test the spirits first to see if it really is. For there are many false teachers around, and the way to find out if their message is from the Holy Spirit is to ask: Does it really agree that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, actually became man with a human body? If so, then the message is from God. If not, the message is not from God but from one who is against Christ, like the “Antichrist” you have heard about who is going to come, and his attitude of enmity against Christ is already abroad in the world. You belong to God and have already won your fight with those who are against Christ because there is someone in your hearts who is stronger than any evil teacher in this wicked world. These men belong to this world, so, they are concerned about worldly affairs and the world pays attention to them. But we are children of God; only those who have walked and talked with God will listen to us. Others won’t. That is another way to know whether a message is from God. The world won’t listen to it. Let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and the children of God are getting to know him better. But if a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God—for God is love. If anyone says “I love God,” but keeps on hating his brother, he is a liar; for if he doesn’t love his brother who is right there in front of him, how can he love God whom he has never seen? And God himself has said that one must love not only God but his brother too. FRIENDS, GOD WANTS US TO TEST THE SPIRITS SO WE WILL NOT BE DECEIVED. IF YOU LOVE THE TRUTH, YOU WILL NOT BE FOOLED. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
