Beloved, every spirit believe not, but prove the spirits, if of God they are, because many false prophets have gone forth to the world;
in this know ye the Spirit of God; every spirit that doth confess Jesus Christ in the flesh having come, of God it is,
and every spirit that doth not confess Jesus Christ in the flesh having come, of God it is not; and this is that of the antichrist, which ye heard that it doth come, and now in the world it is already.
Ye -- of God ye are, little children, and ye have overcome them; because greater is He who [is] in you, than he who is in the world.
They -- of the world they are; because of this from the world they speak, and the world doth hear them;
we -- of God we are; he who is knowing God doth hear us; he who is not of God, doth not hear us; from this we know the spirit of the truth, and the spirit of the error.
Beloved, may we love one another, because the love is of God, and every one who is loving, of God he hath been begotten, and doth know God;
he who is not loving did not know God, because God is love.
In this was manifested the love of God in us, because His Son -- the only begotten -- hath God sent to the world, that we may live through him;
