3 and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. And this is the [spirit] of anti-christ, of which you have heard that he is coming, and he is now in the world already. 4  You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world; therefore they speak of the world and the world hears them.
