Testing the Spirits

1 aBeloved, do not believe every bspirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because cmany false prophets have gone out into the world.

2 By this you know the Spirit of God: aevery spirit that bconfesses that cJesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God;

3 and every spirit that adoes not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the bantichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and cnow it is already in the world.

4 You are from God, alittle children, and bhave overcome them; because cgreater is He who is in you than dhe who is in the world.

5 aThey are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them.

6 aWe are from God; bhe who knows God listens to us; che who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know dthe spirit of truth and ethe spirit of error.
