Love Is Authentic 1John 4:1‑6

Love Is Authentic 1John 4:16

   Love Discriminates Truth v.1

      Differentiate                Beloved, believe not every spirit,

      Discern                          but try the spirits

The Dependable       whether they are of God:  

         The Distorters           because many false prophets

The Disconnection  are gone out into the world.

  Love Detects Truth v.24

     Precision Declares Christ’s Humanity v.2

         The Criteria              Hereby we know the Spirit of God

         The Credentials      Every spirit that confesses

         The Commitment   that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God

     Perversion Denies Christ’s Humanity v.3

   Love Determines Truth v.4

      Those Who Are Conquers In God     You are of God, little children, and

                                                                              have overcome them 

      Those Who Are Controlled by God  because greater is he that is in you,

                                                                              than he that is in the world

    Love Discovers Truth  v.5,6

          Intimate With The World v.5  They are of the world: therefore speak they of  

                                                                       the world, and the world hears them

          Intimate With The Word  v.6

              Some Receive God’s Word  We are of God: he that  knows God hears us

              Some Reject God’s Word      he that is not of God hears not us

              Some Recognize God’s Word Hereby know we the spirit of truth,

                                                                          and the spirit of error  

Love Is Authentic 1John 4:16

  Love Discriminates Truth v.1

      Differentiate  Beloved, believe not every spirit,

Isolating the differences, quarantining in our mind the dissimilarities, and separating out mentally the disparities is vital

in calculating the difference between a false teacher and a teacher of God’s truth.  False teachers want to break down and interrupt the truth of Jesus.  Teachers of truth construct impact in a living relationship with Jesus Christ.   

      Discern            but try the spirits

Behind every teacher stands a spirit.  We must refuse to be gullible and naively accepting.  We have to test the spirits motivating the teacher.  Is this God’s Spirit moving, is this God’s Word motivating or is this a demonic defrauding spirit misleading?  

The Dependable  whether they are of God:  

Does the teaching oppose God, does it dispute the validity of God’s people, disparaging God’s Church, and does it contradict God’s Word?

         The Distorters because many false prophets

A false teacher maneuvers with distortions, spins fake and misleading stories with layers of dual meanings, allegorical nonsense, and fabricated levels of philosophic jargon.  It’s not how clever and astute the articulation sounds, the issue is does it reconfigure with defiling alteration of who the person of Jesus Christ is?  Does the spin attack the power of the position Christ now holds?  Does the presentation gyrate against the perfection

of Jesus accomplishments in paying our debt?  Or does it redefine the need we have as fallen and hopeless in sin, or ignore the future of eternal death in a lost eternity completely?     

The Disconnection are gone out into the world.

False teachers are on tour to reach out to as many people as they can and deconstruct as much truth as possible.  They enunciate a communication of interruption and disturbance.

   Love Detects Truth v.24

         Precision Declares Christ’s Humanity v.2

         The Criteria        Hereby we know the Spirit of God

         The Credentials     Every spirit that confesses 

2 John 7 for many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

If there is no admission, that Jesus Christ is God, Lord of all.  If there is no acknowledgement that He has come from His position of infinite eternity, to live here on earth.  If there is no confession that Jesus lived as a perfect man, to suffer and be judged for our sin by the death of an eternal judgment from God the Father.

It’s not sufficient in a test to just say He’s a historical person.  

If Jesus Christ is refused as the only one who finished this severe justice we deserved for our sin, taking it on Himself.  That after He completed His sacrifice, He rose back to life, as a glorified man and the source of all spiritual life.  

If this risen, exalted God-Man over all is rejected for who He is, what He became and did, and refused as our only real answer, then we are listening to an imposter spirit who is seeking to block a life giving relationship with the real Jesus.    

     The Commitment   that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God

The test of the spirit is do we see a commitment to Jesus Christ as the eternal God in the message of those who claim to have a message?

Is there a commitment to Jesus entrance into this life by coming from heaven through being born with a human body, conceived in a virgin woman by God’s Spirit?

Is there a commitment to the sinless perfection of the God-Man Jesus Christ? 

Is there a commitment to the reality that Jesus is God’s sent Messiah?

     Perversion Denies Christ’s Humanity v.3

And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

All who claim to teach truth from God but represent Jesus Christ inaccurately are not a mouthpiece for God but are speaking for the devil.
