(1Jn.4:1) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but prove the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Notice that God speaks of discerning the spirits, plural, in men. (2)b &Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: (Notice that the question is not has Christ come in the flesh but is He presently in the flesh of the people you are discerning.) (3) and every spirit that confesseth not Jesus is not of God: and this is the [spirit] of the antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it cometh; and now it is in the world already. We see that b every spiritb that is false is b the [spirit] of the antichrist.b The antichrist incorporates all whose spirit does not confess that Christ is in them. (4) Ye are of God, [my] little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. There are only two corporate spirits, b he that is in youb (the Spirit of Christ), or b he that is in the worldb (the spirit of the antichrist). All are one in Christ because they have His Spirit. (Gal.3:28)b &Ye all are one [man] in Christ Jesus. (Rom.8:9)b &.If any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. However, Solomon revealed that the corporate body of the beast has one common, unregenerate spirit. (Eccl.3:18) I said in my heart, [It is] because of the sons of menb &that they may see that they themselves are [but as] beasts. (19)b &yea, they have all one breath (Hebrew: b spiritb )b &. The Holy Spirit first recreates in one corporate man the born again b life-giving spiritb (1Cor.15:45) of Jesus from heaven and then fills that spirit with Himself. A corporate body of unholy spirits also recreates in one corporate man a corporate spirit born from the abyss, the antichrist. (1Jn.5:19) We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in the evil one. The beast is the body of man that is filled with the spirit and nature from below (Rev.17:8).
