The Truth about Reincarnation

What is resurrection, and what is reincarnation? Christian belief does not support the latter, even though it occurred in the New Testament. Believers were not taught to embrace that notion. Christians believe that Jesus is the incarnate God, but not believing in reincarnation is not our stand to disagree. When there is a resurrection there is a surrection, reincarnation vs incarnation, submission vs resubmission, name vs rename. I hope you got the idea. To seek the truth, let me cite some Scriptures about reincarnation.

Occurrences in reincarnation passages like John 9:1-2, Malachi 4:5, Malachi 3:1, Luke 1:17, Mark 6:14-16, 8-28, 9:13, Matthew 1:7-14, Matthew 11:13-14, Matthew 17:12-13 and Revelation 3:12. Why did they give time to talk about it if some people did not experience reincarnation before them? If something were written for our instructions and learning, and if we do not want to embrace it due to our rooted belief, we might as well leave it to our conscience to decide and ask for the help of the Holy Spirit.

Those passages have a hidden truth already revealed to some. If you received it from them, we should not argue because we do not know how they received their revelation, like Paul’s personal revelation, which we embrace without hesitation. There is a saying from the old folks on reincarnation, “The soul with an incomplete task or mission here on earth will come back again and again until it finishes its purpose.” If this is a pagan belief, so be it; we have free will and the spirit within that will guide us. Like the Bereans, they don’t argue or disagree. They listen, do the work, research, and talk about it themselves later.

On reincarnation, the soul will not remember its past life. Yet, there would be a time when the reincarnated person senses something related to a previous life that would push to remind something very familiar. This is like having a “déjà vu,” a  feeling that we may have been in that place before or already know this person in the past but had just met that person in the present time. Do you think that person also would feel the same? Jesus’ experience of reincarnation was written in Hebrews 9:27-28. Do we have to believe it now after learning that it occurs? It depends on how you can win the battle against your rooted belief. It is not easy, but you can do it. It took me years before I got the freedom after knowing the truth. God Bless.
