“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God.” – 1 John 4:1-2

Many claim that the “test” referred to in the first epistle of John was only intended to counteract the ancient heresies of Gnostic teachers who denied the incarnation of Christ. But could a closer look at the Scriptures reveal an even deeper meaning―one that is in fact crucial if we would preserve, strengthen and sanctify a faltering church, equipping God’s people to shine as lights in an ever-darkening world? The Great Test digs deep into the Word of God in an effort to rediscover what it truly means to confess “Jesus as Lord” and to recognize His continued coming in human flesh.
