• 1 John 4:1-3
    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, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
     
  • Psalm 111:10
    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
    A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.
    His praise endures forever.

     
  • Proverbs 1:7
    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
    But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
     
  • 1 Corinthians 2:10-11
    But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.
     
  • 1 John 4:6
    We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
