1st John Chapter 4

1st John 4:1 Beloved do not believe every spirit but test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets have come out into the world.

1st John 4:2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1st John 4:3 therefore every spirit that does not confess this Jesus is not of God: and these are antichrists, which you have heard they are coming; and are now already in the world.

1st John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have conquered them: because greater is He that is in us, than the ones that are in the world.

1st John 4:5 They are of the world: therefore, they speak of the world, and the world listens to them.

1st John 4:6 We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God does not hear us. In this we know the spirit of reality, and the spirit of the delusion.

1st John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loves is born of God, and knows God.

1st John 4:8 He that does not love does not know God; for God is love.

1st John 4:9 In this is made known the love of God in us, because God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

1st John 4:10 This is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent his Son to be the conciliation for our sins.

1st John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loves us, we ought also to be loving one another.

1st John 4:12 No man has seen God at any time. If we are loving one another, God dwelling in us, and His love having been completed in us.

1st John 4:13 In this we know that we are dwelling in Him and He in us, because He has given us out of the same Spirit.

1st John 4:14 For we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son the Savior of the world.

1st John 4:15 Whoever will confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God is dwelling in him, and he in God.

1st John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has in us. God is love; and he that is dwelling in love is dwelling in God and God in him.

1st John 4:17 In this love has been made complete with us, that we may speak freely in the Day of Judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.

1st John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but complete love casts out fear: because fear has punishment. He that fears is not made complete in love.

1st John 4:19 We are loving, because He first loved us.

1st John 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hate his brother, he is a liar: For he that is not loving his brother who he has seen, how can he be loving God who he has not seen?

1st John 4:21 Then this command we have from Him, that he who is loving God also is loving his brother.
