REINCARNATION IS A FALSE DOCTRINE
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Since the world began, nobody has died and is found in another place. No one! The only person who died and came back to life is Jesus Christ, to show that he is not man, but God. All the stories you hear that somebody who lived here or there, died and came back, or reincarnated in a newborn child who resembles him are all satanic manipulations.
There is no scriptural justification for such story. Nobody dies and comes back to life, except those who died, and the power of God brought them back to life to live for more years such as biblical examples of Dorcas, Lazarus etc. Beware of a deceiver that has been testifying that she has lived for over 990 years; that she first died in Egypt as a man, started reincarnating and eventually became a woman!
If you believe such stories, it is because you have left the solid foundation of scripture and are following the wind. It is like believing the story that it was truly Samuel that appeared to Saul when he visited the woman of Endor in 1 Samuel 28. That also was a manipulation of Satan because there was no way a witch doctor would have had power to call up righteous Samuel after death.
When a sinner dies, his soul goes to a place where it ceases to have every link or connection with God. He loses every relationship with God and every consciousness of God. That is the condition of eternal death. His soul is still alive but only as eternal living in a place of torment; a place of unpleasantness; a place of torture that is everlasting. In this place, God is unconcerned that a soul is there passing through pains and great torments.
This is the second death. As for the first death, which is the physical death or physical extinction which came into the world through the sin of Adam, it applies to everyone. Everybody dies including the saints. Both the righteous and sinner shall live forever, but while the righteous lives forever in heaven the sinner lives forever in hell.
All those that came up with the doctrine of reincarnation saying that when you die you will come out in a different place and live for more years are liars. After death, it's judgment.
Thought for the day:
Don't believe liars bent on promoting the power of Satan.
Song for the day:
Forever O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven
Bible reading for the day:
2 Samuel 13-14; Luke 20:1-26
