Do not believe everyone,
Who say that they have the spirit;
Test them to see what they have done,
And if they truly do merit.
See if the spirit is from God,
Since there are many false prophets;
And see by chance it is a fraud,
Looking to make some fast profits.
This is how you can recognize,
Depends how each person declares;
If Christ was human in disguise,
Has the Spirit from God that shares.
But the ones who do not declare,
That Jesus had come as human;
The antichrist might try to dare,
Or of Satan within his plan.
Remember you belong to God,
So then you have won victory;
And you need to honor and laud,
As you conform to His decree.
Because the one who is in you,
Is the greatest of all around;
So you are able to construe,
In making a ecstatic sound.
These people belong to this earth,
And so they have just worldly thoughts;
Which do not hold so little worth,
With evil and unholy plots.
The world always listens to them,
All that we say has been ignored;
But the day comes God will condemn,
At the next coming of the Lord.
The one who knows God will adhere,
The Spirit of truth is within;
The spirit of lies is not sincere,
Because of error from its sin.
