1John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1John 4:1 Beloved.(what God thinks of us:.Psalms 23:5), believe not every spirit.(the things people tell you come from their spirit. Many speak things appealing to one's ego:.Matthew 12:34 "...out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."), but try the spirits.(how?).whether they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

1John 1:6.

What they may tell you shows the spirit or attitude they have. Are they of a loving spirit or an evil one, an honest one or a cheating one?.1Timothy 6:5. Be sure of what you believe, that it is true:.John 3:33.

As evil based spirits can be operating in people John here tells us to try them: 1John 2:18

Many crooks.abound. Here's how to know, who's who?.Matthew 7:16-10.

In the ancient world there was no banking system as we know it today and no paper money. All money was made from metal, heated until liquid, poured into molds and allowed to cool. When the coins were cooled, it was necessary to smooth off the uneven edges. The coins were comparatively.soft and of course many people shaved them closely. In one century, more than eighty laws were passed in Athens, Greece to stop the practice of shaving down the coins then in circulation. But some money changers were men of integrity, who would accept no counterfeit money. They were men of honor who put only genuine full weighted money into circulation. Such men were called 'dokimos' or 'approved'.....Donald Barnhouse.

1John 4:2 Hereby you know the Spirit of God. Every spirit that confesses that Emmanuel the Christ is come in the flesh is of God.
1John 4:2 Hereby you know the Spirit of God. Every spirit.(we are spirit).that confesses.(word 'confesses' in original means 'is in harmony with':.Romans 10:10).that Emmanuel the Christ is come in the flesh.(that is, that Christ is a real being and that Christ can be in you or, to put it another way, that you can be in this body {Ephesians 1:23} of higher consciousness believers and of course this means a spiritual thing and is the nature of the body of Christ).is of God.

Christ came to reveal to us that the high spiritual realm of love (the unified field) or the field which unifies humanity, which is what the Father is, could also be in us:.John 14:9 "...he that has seen me has seen the Father...(*)."

1John 4:3 And every spirit that confesses.(on word 'confesses' see above verse) not.(that is, doesn't believe that God could be in man).that Emmanuel Christ is come in the flesh.(the Christ nature in believers).is not of God.(the dark side pumps out the negative frequencies, that the mind not attuned to God, tends to absorb). And this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come and even now is in the world.(as the original has it).
So where is it if not our influenced egos? The ego is about as antichrist as one can get:.Jeremiah 44:16,17.

Guard your thoughts. Test them to see if they may be guidance from the true God or someevul entity trying to shove thoughts into your mind. Test them by asking yourself, Is this thought approved by Christ and in my and others highest and best interest for all time?

Evil entities will always try to get you away from the true God, as they did with the apostle Peter:.Mark 8:32,33.

1John 4:4 You are of.(or 'out of' {born out of} or 'from').God little children and have overcome them.(see verses above), because greater is he.(word 'he' in both places in this verse is not a part of the original).that which is in you, than that in the world..(?)
When you choose the good you are much stronger than any darkness that may be dogging your life. 

With that being said, why then ceremonies mentioned by Paul in the Bible?

1John 4:5 They are of the world.(1Corinthians 1:18-27). Therefore speak they of the world and the world hears them.
Low consciousness people feel comfortable with others who are of similar thinking:.Amos 3:3. We all are today a long way from where we came from. 

Those bothered by evil spirits will not like to hear and/or talk about spiritual things of God the Father, the Holy Spirit and Christ.

1John 4:6 We are of God. He that knows God hears us. He that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
1John 4:6 We are of God.(and Creator-God is only love). He that knows God hears us.(is aligned with the love in each of us {*}). He that is not of God hears not us.(that, is, not of God yet). Hereby know we the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

We go one way or the other depending on what we choose to follow as a life standard.

The spirit or attitude of error comes from not being aware of one's true nature the everliving God of all good creation made us with, that is, the soul we have always connected to this God, but sadly our low consciousness living and the programming from this satanic world (Revelation 12:9) has put to sleep the soul in many, thus rendering mostly ineffective any connection to the true good God of all creation, who made us and the soul we connect to God with:.2Timothy 1:9.

1John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another. For love is of God and everyone that loves.(*).is born of God.(*).and knows God.
John 13:35 "By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another" Romans 13:10 "Love works no ill to his neighbour, therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.(Matthew 22:36-40)."

If of humanity, you are born of God, born of good, born of love:.1John 4:6-17. You have certain God given rights which the satanic.cabal has been out for centuries to deprive you of. There are those that look like they are of humanity but are not.

1John 4:8 He that loves not knows not God, for God is love.
Therefor to know God we also must be of love. That's what God looks for in one's heart to be aligned with what God is. When one speaks out of love, then it's of the true God that is spoken:.Deuteronomy 18:19 "...whosoever will not hearken unto my words...I will require it of him.".If one speaks and acts out of a loving, kind, helpful heart, it is a witness of love (God is love) to others and you have fulfilled love's purpose.

John 3:16,17 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life...For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved."
John 10:10 "...I am come that they'll have life in super abundance."

1John 4:9 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.
1John 4:9 In this.(in this knowing).was manifested the love of God toward us.(this love of God is brought forth toward us by our knowing, our belief, our acceptance of it as being true, but why would anyone accept something as being true without first being as the Bereans were {Acts 17:11}, in that, they checked things out first, so you too check things out to be sure your faith is based on truth, by proving the Bible to be true, that is, those parts in it that are true, as best we can ascertain so far today {*}, also prove Christ is real {1, 2} and prove the true God exists and learn about who created the multiverse which obviously includes all in it), because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live.(John 3:17; Hebrews 7:25;."Without God, there is no life! For God is life itself."....Bruno Gröning).through (original 'by', 'in', 'through', 'because of', 'with').him.

John 3:17 "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.".God is out to help, heal and save us from the negatives of this life:.Luke 1:71 "That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all that hate us." Romans 5:9 "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him."

Acts 17:28 "For in him we live and move and have our being, as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring."

God sent His son into the world for us. Why?.John 10:10.

Even though you may have known many truths during the past many years, you had to go through what you did to get to where you are in God today. Don't be sorry. Be thankful!

To live through God one needs to be sure of these things:.John 17:3.

1John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God.(and people never have and really, just can't love God with their low consciousness minds:.Romans 6:20), but that he loved us.(Psalms 23:5; John 3:16,17).and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins..(*)
1John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us we ought also to love one another.
John 3:16-21.

Matthew 22:36-40.

1John 4:12 No man has seen God at any time.(*). If we love one another, God dwells in us and his love is being perfected in us.
The verse is saying to forget the physical seeing of God for now. The true God becomes known by those who are like God, verse 8 above. God dwells in you, that's why Emmanuel said this and this verse here is about that too:.Jeremiah 31:34 "And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord? for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them says the Lord, for I've forgiven iniquity and no longer remember any sin.".1Corinthians 15:28; Ephesians 1:23.
1John 4:13.Hereby we know.(how?).that we dwell in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.
God has given us of his spirit, enabling us to love. If you love, you know you have it.

Barnes Notes: God imparts the influences of that Spirit to our souls, producing love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, etc.:.Galatians 5:22,23. It was one of the promises which the Emmanuel made to his disciples that he would send the Holy Spirit to be with them after he should be withdrawn from them:.John 14:16,17,26; 15:26 16:7. One of the clearest evidences which we can have that we are the children of God, is derived from the influences of that Spirit on our hearts:.Romans 8:16.

1John 4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.
1John 4:14 And we have seen and do testify.(original for word 'testify' is 'are a witness of', that is our lives reflect the high consciousness of God).that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world:.John 3:17; 4:42; 10:10.
1John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Emmanuel is the Son of God, God dwells in him and he in God.
1John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess.(original is 'agree with', that is acknowledge those things your soul is showing you {*}; this is confessing to oneself; it's a thing of the heart, a thing necessary in dissipating the dark side:.Luke 12:8).that Emmanuel is the Son of God, God dwells in him and he in God.

What about this 'accepting of Christ'? It's not so much an accepting as it is a knowing of an indwelling.

1John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has to us. God is love and he that dwells in love dwells in God and God in him.
1John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has to us. God is love and he that dwells in love.dwells in God.(?).and God in him.(*).

It's not that God has love to give here and there. It's always there because God is love.

If you dwell in God, you're obviously awakened to the fact you were saved from the beginning. And what does this love do for you?

And what does this do for anyone?."You are in the movement of the Creator. You are a personification of His eternity. Go along with the concerns of the Creator."....Grigori Grabovoi.

1John 4:17 Herein.(that is, in God:.2Corinthians 6:14).is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness.(Hebrews 10:27).in the day of judgment.(Revelation 20:12), because as he is.(see 'as He is' and verse 16 just above; and, wasn't He perfect?), so are we in this world.
And that's why you just don't seem to fit into what this satanically influenced world is like:.1Peter 4:4.

As Christ was while in the physicality of Emmanuel and now in the invisible world beyond the physical, a world of frequencies, able to be recognized by those there, we on Earth recognize Christ as being within us. And so it is for those when in the high consciousness of love, for the source of love is a thing of the invisible. All we see and know of are frequencies and how they function.

1John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.
1John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect.(original for word 'perfect' is also 'full', so therefor, full love is one's mind staying on the course of love and the word 'full' meaning, not allowing negatives to nip away at his or her thoughts of love).love casts out fear.(all fear is ego based; how could God have any fear whatsoever? so God had no ego; well then, who did, where.did this ego and the stuff of it come from?), because fear has torment.(we fear things because we believe we can be hurt by them or get in trouble with others if we do. David's example:.Mark 2:26). He that fears.(has an attitude of fear).is not made perfect in love.

Does that mean you don't fear dangerous things? No. Don't risk.harm to yourself or others. Be smart, not careless and foolish.(*). 

1John 4:19 We love him because he first loved us.(*).

1John 4:20 If a man say I love God and hates.(to love less by comparison:.Matthew 22:39,40).his brother, he is a liar.(and is antiChrist:.1John 2:22). For he that loves not his brother whom he has seen how can he love God whom he has not seen?
He's then kidding himself. If you don't have works of love somehow toward humanity, toward others. One is kidding himself that he has love if his or her intention in being nice to others is to see how advantage can be taken of them. A work of love can be one's care and concern for others, his ot her prayers and his or her envisioning for a better life for another and all, even for the evil ones that they change to good.
1John 4:21 And this commandment.(a command is an instruction, a piece of advice to help toward a better life).have we from him, That he who loves God loves his brother also.

1John 5:1.Whosoever believes that Emmanuel is the Christ.(why is this important?).is born of God. And every one that loves him that begat.('him that begat' is the Father).loves him also that is begotten of him.
Speaking of Emmanuel and all those of the same spirit of higher consciousness.
1John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep his commandments.
So, what are these commandments, instructions or advice today?
1John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments.(Matthew 22:36-40).are not grievous.
Grievous as they were in Old Testament times, because there were so many of them and the people never had the heart for keeping any of them.
1John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcomes.(present tense).the world. And this is the victory that overcomes.(aorist tense).the world, even our faith.

1John 5:5 Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Emmanuel is the Son of God.(also known as the Word, see verse 7 below)?
Mark 9:24 "And straightway the father of the child cried out and said with tears, Lord, I believe, help you my unbelief."
1John 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Emmanuel the Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
1John 5:6 This is he that came by water.(water and the blood refer primarily to the baptism that revealed him at the beginning of his Earthly ministry and the blood which he shed at its close:.John 19:34).and blood.(water and blood), even Emmanuel the Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood.(in other words, He was a man, a human being and was born into the world the same as all of us, through the water and blood that comes with the placenta and baby out of the womb). And it is the Spirit.(what is the Spirit?).that bears witness.(if you believe this as being true, it's because the Creator God is with you:.John 15:26), because the Spirit is truth.
1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost. And these three are one.
1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word.(see verse 5 above).and the Holy Ghost. And.these three are one.

What do these verses 7 and 8 mean? Various functioning of the same intelligent energy,such as water can be ice, liquid or steam. And if you're in the Word (meaning Christ) then you're in the oneness as well. Even ancient Job knew this, Paul too, as they had record in the oneness of all:.Job 16:19; 2Corinthians 1:23; 1John 5:11.

Many scholars hold to verse 8 as being a later insertion from the original canonization of the Bible. The Bible is not a finished and closed book, rather it is a foundation, a living book, with words activated by the Creator's spirit in humans and provides for progression in truth and comprehension:.1Peter 1:22; 2Peter 3:18. Otherwise it's a dead book. Some people relate verses 7 and 8 to what's called, the Trinity.

1John 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in Earth, the Spirit and the water and the blood. And these three agree in one.
Comprised with.Eclectic Notes: There is no cleansing of the old nature, but there is a new nature given:.Matthew 9:16,17 "No man puts a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up takes from the garment and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles, else the bottles break and the wine runs out and the bottles perish, but they put new wine into new bottles and both are preserved." John 3:15 "That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.".So, it's not a patching up of the corrupt low consciousness ego nature we all have, but a refreshing newness of life in a higher consciousness:.Isaiah 28:12,13; John 6:53-57; Titus 1:2; Hebrews 10:22.
1John 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater, for this is the witness of God, which testifies of his Son.

1John 5:10 He that believes on.(original 'into'; that is part and parcel with).the Son of God has the witness in himself.(?). He that believes not God has made him a liar, because he believes not the record.(the record:.John 19:35; Acts 4:13).that God gave of his Son.

1John 5:11 And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life and this life is in.(original 'through', 'in', 'made available because of':.John 8:42; 1Peter 2:21).his Son.(*).

1John 5:12 He that has the Son has life.(on the word life and the interesting original word meaning for 'life').and he that has not the Son of God has not life.
Paul said:.Galatians 2:20 "...Christ lives in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

The life of God is freely available for all who want it. How does this work?.Revelation 21:6.

Who was Paul?

1John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you.may know that.(the "you may know that", part of the verse emphasizes the strong reason to believe what John is relating to them and for us today).you have eternal life.(Luke 20:38).and that you have it because you believe.(Barnes Notes: that is, because you continue believing:.1Corinthians 15:58).on the name of the Son of God.
Or, closer to the original '...and that (or, 'that because of your') believing on the name of the Son of God, you know you have eternal life....(it's showing how powerful believing is and what you really have to excitedly look forward to:.1Corinthians 2:9; Ephesians 1:18.

Barnes Notes: to believe on His name is to believe the individual, that is, believe what He said, such as regarding your eternal life.

1John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will.(and God's will is always good; what else is it?), he hears us.
This is called being in alignment with God. When in Christ, what you desire is always good for self and others, because you're in alignment with what God is and what is that?

Matthew 9:29 "Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you."

God's principle is:.Matthew 16:27 "...then he shall reward every man according to his works.".So, make sure your works of belief & action produce good results and not negative results.

Matthew 15:28 "Then Emmanuel answered and said unto her, O woman, great is your faith, it will be unto you even as you wilt.(as you see it in your imagination to be, so it will be). And her daughter was made whole from that very hour."

2Peter 1:3,4.

1John 5:15 And if we know.(how can you know for sure unless you know God is real?.Zechariah 1:6).that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions.(the requests, what it is that we asked for).that we desired of him.(how?).

1John 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death. I do not say that he shall pray for it.
A sin unto death is one that is not repented of, one that continues to be fed from a polluted conscience until the mind is seared:.1Timothy 4:2; 2Peter 2:14. A sin not unto death would be one that bothers an individual's conscience, as the example of Paul's life shows:.Romans 7:14-25. So, what then is a 'sin unto death'? Since all sin is now looked after in Christ, we devolve to attitude, that is, one in that type of attitude, cares not at all about if his or her actions are hurtful, deceitful, greed motivated and cruel. It's basically a person who is determined to live life as he or she sees fit to and/or is either unwilling to change or is so far gone in life the way that was chosen, that there is only one physical end for them, death:.Proverbs 14:12. So, what might their end be? They are not lost forever. No one is. In order to help those who just can't deal with the darkness in them, the darkness that is always caused by fleshly things, God has a solution. What is it?
1John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin. And there is a sin not unto death..(?)
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death,.."
1John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sins not, but he that is begotten of God keeps himself and that wicked one touches him not.
1John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God.(has gone through the begotten stage of coming to God {Galatians 4:19} and is firm in faith, no longer worrying about sin, because he's learned why sin no longer counts).sins not.(how Creator-God now looks at it), but he that is begotten of God keeps himself.(keeps himself alert as to always being in the same high consciousness that the Creator has and this involves effort in being good and avoiding negatives).and that wicked one.(Matthew 13:19).touches him not.(the protection of being in high consciousness levels.keeps one on the side of life where there are benefits).

The words 'born' and 'begotten' in this verse are synonyms. So why is it that sin is not regarded to an individual if they are born of God?

1John 5:19 And we know that we are of God and the whole world lies in wickedness.
What is the difference John is talking about? What's meant here 'the whole world'?

Society today is as if all of us are lying in a cesspool.

Job 9:24; Isaiah 1:6; Hosea 5:4; 2Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 12:9.

How bad is it and how to extricate from it.

1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come and has given us an innerstanding that we may know him that is true and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Emmanuel the Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come and has given us an innerstanding.(how?).that we may know him that is true and we are in him that is true, even in his Son.(Matthew 11:27).Emmanuel the Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

What is eternal life? How to get it:.Acts 16:30,31; 13:48; 1John 5:11; 5:39; 6:40; 6:68; 10:28; 17:2; Romans 2:7; 5:21; 6:23; 1Timothy 6:12; 6:19; Titus 1:2; 3:7; 1Peter 1:4; 5:4; 1John 1:2; 2:25; 3:15; 5:11-13; Jude 1:21.

The true God is you in Him and Him in you. When in the true God of all love and creation, you can be sure you have eternal life. You can be sure you have eternal life because you are aligned with this God.

1John 5:11; 2Timothy 1:1; Matthew 11:27; John 3:15; 17:3. Being in God.(*).is.eternal life and this is now. Being in Christ.is guarantee that you live forever.

1John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
....next New Testament books are 2John and 3John
