A true believer can be identified through the scriptures by his or her possessing the signs and character traits of a believer as stated in the Bible.
A true believer should have one or two or all of the followings signs (stated in Mark 16:17 & 18) manifesting in his or her life.
(Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18: They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.)
Every true believer is expected to receive the Holy Ghost baptism and speak in new tongues. ( Acts 11:16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.) Holy Ghost baptism and speaking in tongues is one of the identities of a true believer.
(1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.)
(Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.)
Exhibiting Love at all times.
(Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
39: And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.)
(1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, love (charity), these three; but the greatest of these is love (charity.)
Possessing the fruits of the spirit
(Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,)
Crucifying the flesh
(Galatians 5:24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.)
Living and walking in the Spirit.
(Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.)
