1 John 2:22–23; 1 John 4:1–3; 1 John 5:1; 1 John 5:10; 1 John 5:13

22 Who is the liar but khe who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is bthe antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. 23 lNo one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.


Test the Spirits

Beloved, tdo not believe every spirit, but utest the spirits to see whether they are from God, for vmany wfalse prophets xhave gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: yevery spirit that confesses that zJesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit athat does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and bnow is in the world already.


Overcoming the World

kEveryone who believes that lJesus is the Christ has been born of God, and meveryone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him.


10 Whoever believes in the Son of God zhas the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God ahas made him a liar, bbecause he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son.


That You May Know

13 I write fthese things to you who gbelieve in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.
