How to Know the Source. Compare SBTs s Notes At The Bottom

1 John 4:2-In this way you will know197 the Pneuma of The God: every inspired message that confesses that Jesus Christ came in the flesh comes from The God.198 1JN 4:3 And every inspired message that does not confess Jesus is not from The God. 199 And this is the [inspired message] of the antichrist which you heard was coming and is already now present in the world of humanity.200 

1 John 4:2 In This Way You Will Know197  

197  In this way you will know

Or, KJV: hereby know ye the Spirit of God; WEY:

the test by which you ma recognize the Spirit of God is that; MOF: you can

recognize the Spirit of God by this; NEB: this is how we can recognize the

Spirit of God. Like Moses identifying a true prophet (Deuteronomy 18:20-22)

John now narrows the identifying feature of a truly inspired message.
Paraphrase of verses 2, 3, “This is the way you will recognize the inspiration

of God: every inspiration that confesses Jesus Christ came in the flesh has

its source in God. In contrast, every ‘inspiration’ which does not confess

Jesus does not have God as its source. This ‘inspiration’ is the one which

comes from the antichrist which you heard was going to makes its

appearance. The antichrist is already in the world right now.

” [NCMM Paraphrase]

The Pneuma of The God: every inspired message

That Confesses that Jesus Christ came in the

Flesh comes from The God.198 

198-

Every inspired message that confesses that Jesus Christ came in the flesh

comes from The God: Or, GDS: every inspired utterance that acknowledges. 

One of the most powerful growing influences in the Church were the Googled

Gnostics who believe Jesus was only a phantom, a ghost who appeared

in flesh but was not really physical. It for this reason John makes the

statement here. John uses EN SARKI (in flesh) whereas Paul mentions

the true manhood or humankind of Jesus Christ in the word ANTHROPOU

(human) making the manifest Word a true “anthropoid” like his human

fellows. Regarding this “anthropoid” Paul writes “ADAM HOS ESTI TUPOS

… TOU HENOS ANTHROPOU IESOU CHRISTOU.” (Adam who is a type of

 the one man Jesus Christ). (Romans 5:14, 15, 19) Paul makes a similar

 comparison in 1 Corinthians 15:45-49. Thus the Son of God is true man,

a real anthropoid and for this reason calls himself Son of man. He was not

a ghost, or phantasm, or materialized spirit. Caution must be exercised

here because John’s words were written in a precise context. Just

 because someone today teaches that Jesus came in the flesh is not

a guarantee that the person is inspired of God and that everything

else he or she teaches must also be true

 

1 John 4:3

And every inspired message that does not confess Jesus

is not from The God.199 And this is the [inspired message]

of the antichrist which you heard was coming and is already

now present in the world of humanity.200

199 Every inspired message that does not confess Jesus is not from The God: 

Or, NEB: does not thus acknowledge Jesus. The Gnostics (‘Knowers’) believed, like

some of the ancient Greek philosophers, that all flesh was evil, and therefore Jesus

was only a ghost. There is no universal agreement on the Gnostics though the

Nag Hammadi codices shed some light. To John it is very simple: if an ‘inspiration’

does not confess Jesus is simply not from God. Such a distinction is now highly

obscured in the modern explosion of thousands of Christian sects. John 1:14,

“So the Word became flesh and live right among us. We experienced his glory.”

[NCMM Paraphrase] 1 Corinthians 12:3, “No on speaking by the inspiration of

God ever says: ‘Curse Jesus!’ Also no one can say, ‘Jesus is Master!’ save by the

holy Pneuma.” [NCMM Paraphrase] Revelation 19:10, “Inspired prophecy originates from the testimony of Jesus.” [NCMM Paraphrase] The Scriptures are inspired of God. 2 Timothy 3:16 puts it this way, “All Scripture is God- breathed [THEO-PNEUSTOS].” [NCMM Paraphrase]

“Confess.” Greek HOMOLOGEI (same + speech) Dictionary of New Testament Theology, Volume 1, pages 344-347: “… to say the same, to agree with one’s statement… occurs 26 times in the NT (10 times in John)… An integral part of true faith is the public confession of the incarnate Son of God, for fellowship with God is dependent on it. It is a mark of true Christology in the face of heretical movements, possibly Gnostic, which denied the identity of Jesus with the Christ. John never means isolated teachings, when he writes of confession, but the whole truth which produces fellowship with God. This truth is not a theological proposition but the person of Jesus. In his confession a man indicates that he stands by the fact of Christ and submits his life to it. It becomes a touchstone, a sign which tests the spirits.”

 

200 The antichrist which you heard was coming and is already now present in the world of humanity: See notes on 1 John 2:18. 2 Thessalonians 2:7, “The mystery of this lawlessness is already at work.” Compare the word lawlessness in the notes on Matthew 7:21-23 and Matthew 13:41. The foretold apostasy is reaching full bloom with one ancient apostle left to restrain it. The antichrist(s) is not some future individual expected at the End-Times but is already present and active as Paul also agreed 30 years earlier. (2 Thessalonians 2:7)
