1 John 4:1-6 - How To Recognize The Spirit Of God

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone forth into the world.

2 In this ye know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ hath come in flesh is of God; 3 and every spirit that confesses not Jesus is not of God; and this is the spirit of the Anti-Christ, of which ye have heard that it is coming, and now it is in the world already.

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He Who is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world; for this cause they speak of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God; he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears us not: from this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
