    "They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error." With profound depth and maturity in the Spirit, John affirms to us our authority in the Glad Tidings; and that WE are the face of God before the world. (1 Corinthians 6:2)!!!
