Sabbath Day (Ex.20: 8 – 11) Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019
In Messiah’s name: God’s word is the truth (Jn.17: 17 & Ps. 119: 142) and Sin is the transgression of the law. (1Jn. 3: 4)
The following is an up-dated rant on “reincarnation”, which I wrote three and a half years ago and I thought I’d use it as a “word” for this Sabbath.
As you may know the term “reincarnation” is not found in the bible. However, there are those who claim it is hinted at in Matt.17: 12 & Mark 9: 11 – 13. That is, Messiah seems to suggest that John, the Baptist was the reincarnation of Elijah (Elias), but that is not the case. John, the Baptist came in the power and spirit that was typical of Elijah.
In addition, during Messiah’s ministry, the Pharisees for example, believed in a resurrection, not reincarnation as some also claim, while the Sadducees did not believe in a resurrection . See Acts.23: 6 – 8.
Here’s the definition of “reincarnation”.
It is defined as “a rebirth of the soul in successive fleshly bodies”. The Latin means “to enter the flesh again”. The bible teaches that after death (totally unconscious/asleep) there will be a resurrection to eternal life for the righteous, while an eternal death for those who followed Satan and rejected the Creator and his Son. In other words, we do not have an immortal soul which is reincarnated after death.
Reincarnation is foolishness. It’s a pagan philosophy.
The adherents to this demonic-inspired theology believe they are immortal – you die and then reincarnated, over and over again. If this was so, and the purpose of many lives is to accord a person a chance to correct the evils/wrongs/wickedness in his/her life, then why does so much wickedness, lies, war, murder, rape, crimes, etc. continue to increase in this present world?
In other words, if reincarnation were true, then this world should be a righteous, just and a peaceful one, since humans – with many lives – would have had thousands of years to modify their behaviour.
How many personal reincarnations would it take for a person to become a righteous individual — five, ten, a thousand lives?? A million lives would not make a person righteous and just, because they’d be born right back into the same world from which they left – one that is filled with lies, deception and wickedness.
Belief in reincarnation is for the ignorant, fools and the grossly deluded! Those who remain so, will experience a SECOND DEATH from which there is no resurrection.
Take to heart the following words that describe the dreadful end of the followers of Satan.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Rev.21: 8)
Be wise and repent!
The Father’s commandments, statutes and judgments have not been abolished. They are the foundational principles of the New Agreement – The New Covenant which Messiah followed – he did not do away with them. May you reject the Serpent’s lifestyle and follow the great I AM’s Son, Yahshua, Messiah.
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who love the truth.
