We love because he first loved us (1 John 4:7-21)

John commands us to love one another. The way we love one another is evidence whether we are from God or not. For God is love so all love comes from him and whoever loves therefore must know God. We only love in response to God ‘s love for us. The degree to which we comprehend what God ‘s divine love is for us will be the degree to which we love one another. What is God ‘s divine love must be clearly understood.

This is the theological plumb line for testing whether Prophets are speaking under the influence of the spirit of God or Satan. (1 John 4:1-6)
