Beyond the Gospels: 1John

Today’s verses: 1 John 4:1-6
[Open up your Bible or click the reference above to read the verses.]

Every spirit that confesses Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God. The spirit of the antichrist is not going to confess that Jesus is from God.

The world listens to those who have the same viewpoint as the world. Whoever listens to the writings of the apostles in the Word of God sees things from a different perspective. They are rejected by the world. The world will not listen to them.

So when testing the spirit of what you hear and read consider first what they believe about Jesus and second if they are in agreement with the Word. Test every spirit and reject the ideas and teachings of those who do not pass the test, for they are false prophets and liars.

This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
1 John 4:6

And don’t fear those who reject you, even if you seem far outnumbered, because the One who is in you is far greater than the one who is in the world.

Thought for today: Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world. Do not give Yourself over to Satan’s accusations.

Dear God, help us to listen and know Your Spirit stands by
to help us discern truth from lies.
