Ang Espiritu sang Dios kag ang Espiritu sang Anti-Cristo

Mga hinigugma, indi kamo magdali-dali pati sa mga tawo nga nagasiling nga ang ila ginatudlo halin sa Espiritu Santo, kundi usisaon ninyo anay kon bala ang ila ginatudlo halin sa Dios ukon indi. Kay madamo na nga indi matuod nga mga propeta ang naglalapta sa bug-os nga kalibutan. Sa sini nga paagi mahibaluan ninyo nga ang espiritu nga ara sa ila iya gid sang Dios: kon nagakilala sila nga si Jesu-Cristo nagpakatawo, ang Dios ang nagsugo sa ila. Pero ang wala nagakilala nga si Jesus nagpakatawo, ang nagsugo sa iya indi ang Dios kundi ang espiritu sang anti-Cristo. (Nabatian na ninyo nga magaabot ini kag ari na ini sa kalibutan.) Pero mga anak ko, kamo iya sang Dios, kag gindaog na ninyo ang indi matuod nga mga propeta; kay ang Espiritu Santo nga ara sa inyo mas gamhanan pa sang sa kay Satanas nga nagagahom sa mga tawo sang kalibutan. Ining indi matuod nga mga propeta iya sang kalibutan, gani ang mga butang nga iya sang kalibutan amo ang ila ginasugid, kag ang mga tawo sang kalibutan nagapamati sa ila. Pero kita mga anak sang Dios. Ang mga nagakilala sa Dios nagapamati sang aton ginatudlo, pero ang wala nagakilala sa Dios wala nagapamati sa aton. Gani sa sini nga paagi mahibaluan ta kon sin-o ang nagatudlo sang kamatuoran nga halin sa Espiritu sang Dios kag kon sin-o ang nagatudlo sang kabutigan nga halin sa iban nga espiritu.[a]

Ang Dios Gugma

Mga hinigugma, maghigugmaanay kita kay ang gugma halin sa Dios. Ang nagahigugma anak sang Dios, kag nakakilala sa Dios. Ang wala nagahigugma wala nakakilala sa Dios, kay ang Dios gugma. Ginpakita sang Dios ang iya gugma sa aton paagi sa iya pagpadala sang iya bugtong nga Anak diri sa kalibutan, agod nga paagi sa iya makabaton kita sang kabuhi nga wala sing katapusan. 10 Amo ini ang matuod nga paghigugma: indi nga kita ang naghigugma sa Dios, kundi ang Dios amo ang naghigugma sa aton, gani ginpadala niya ang iya Anak agod akuon niya ang aton mga sala para mapatawad kita.

11 Mga hinigugma, kon amo ini ang paghigugma sang Dios sa aton, dapat man kita maghigugmaanay. 12 Wala pa gid sing tawo nga nakakita sa Dios. Pero kon nagahigugmaanay kita, ang Dios nagakabuhi sa aton kag ang iya gugma wala na sing kulang sa aton.

13 Nasiguro ta nga kita ara sa Dios kag ang Dios ari sa aton, kay ginhatag niya sa aton ang iya Espiritu. 14 Nakita namon kag nagasugid kami nga ginpadala sang Amay ang iya Anak bilang Manluluwas sang kalibutan. 15 Ang bisan sin-o nga nagasiling nga si Jesus Anak sang Dios, ang Dios ara sa iya, kag siya ara sa Dios. 16 Nakahibalo na kita sang gugma sang Dios kag nagatuo nga kita ginahigugma niya.

Ang Dios gugma. Kag ang nagakabuhi nga may paghigugma, ara sa Dios, kag ang Dios ara sa iya. 17 Ini nga gugma ginakompleto sa aton hasta nga wala na sing kulang, agod indi na kita magkahadlok sa adlaw sang paghukom, kay ang aton kabuhi diri sa kalibutan pareho sang pagkabuhi ni Cristo. 18 Kon nagahigugma kita wala kita nahadlok sa sina nga paghukom. Ang gugma nga wala sing kulang nagakuha sang sina nga kahadlok. Ang tawo nagakahadlok tungod nga nagahulat siya nga silutan, kay kulang pa ang iya nga gugma.

19 Nagahigugma kita sa Dios[b] tungod kay siya amo ang una nga naghigugma sa aton. 20 Ang nagasiling nga siya nagahigugma sa Dios, pero wala nagahigugma sa iya utod, ina nga tawo butigon. Kay kon ang iya utod mismo nga iya makita indi niya mahigugma, paano siya makahigugma sa Dios nga indi niya makita? 21 Gani amo ini ang sugo nga ginhatag sa aton ni Cristo: ang tawo nga nagahigugma sa Dios dapat man nga maghigugma sa iya utod.

On Denying the Incarnation

Dear friends,(A) do not believe every spirit,(B) but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.(C) This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh(D) is from God,(E) but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist,(F) which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.(G)

You, dear children,(H) are from God and have overcome them,(I) because the one who is in you(J) is greater than the one who is in the world.(K) They are from the world(L) and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us.(M) This is how we recognize the Spirit[a] of truth(N) and the spirit of falsehood.(O)

God’s Love and Ours

Dear friends, let us love one another,(P) for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God(Q) and knows God.(R) Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.(S) This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son(T) into the world that we might live through him.(U) 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us(V) and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.(W) 11 Dear friends,(X) since God so loved us,(Y) we also ought to love one another.(Z) 12 No one has ever seen God;(AA) but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.(AB)

13 This is how we know(AC) that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit.(AD) 14 And we have seen and testify(AE) that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.(AF) 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God,(AG) God lives in them and they in God.(AH) 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love.(AI) Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.(AJ) 17 This is how love is made complete(AK) among us so that we will have confidence(AL) on the day of judgment:(AM) In this world we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear,(AN) because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

19 We love because he first loved us.(AO) 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister(AP) is a liar.(AQ) For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen,(AR) cannot love God, whom they have not seen.(AS) 21 And he has given us this command:(AT) Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.(AU)

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.

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.

11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

19 We love him, because he first loved us.

20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
