Beloved, BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that CONFESSETH 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. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. THEY are OF THE WORLD: therefore SPEAK they OF THE WORLD, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; HE that is NOT OF GOD HEARETH NOT US. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. HE THAT LOVETH NOT KNOWETH NOT GOD; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 1 John 4:1-13. Today, it takes way more faith to deny the existence of God, than it does to Believe by Faith that He is here. His Love, His Creation, His Life, are so "In Your Face", that it is actually impossible to say, "There is no God", and truly Believe it. It's like saying, "There is no air, no oxygen, and we don't need it anyway. We can live just fine without it". You can hate God, and hate that He is here, BUT YOU CAN'T TRULY BELIEVE HE'S NOT HERE. So Believe, and, Be Blessed.
