REINCARNATION

Reincarnation: the doctrine that the soul, upon death of the body, comes back to earth in another body or form. Rebirth of the soul in a new body.

This is the general understanding of reincarnation today, which came from the east.  A different understanding comes from The Holy Bible— the Sacred Text of the west.

The soul, by definition, is the vital principle in man credited to the faculty of thought, emotion, and action. The soul is unique to each individual because none of us have the same exact experiences in life, which determine how we think and feel; thought and emotion.  The eastern concept of reincarnation teaches that the soul of an individual can return again and again for the purpose of reaching total enlightenment or perfection.  Here the body experiences a physical death followed by a physical birth as the soul is transferred to a new body.  Fact: energy is either transferred or transformed. The east teaches transference of the soul-energy. Here’s the problem with this incomplete concept.  Our soul, through the painful things we saw, heard, felt, and experienced throughout our life took on negative and destructive energy.  If our soul-energy is not transformed during our time here on earth, our unhealed mental and emotional energy will be transferred, passing over into the spiritual realm (“in heaven as it is on earth”).  If we are to accept the eastern concept of reincarnation we must accept that the infant comes into this world in an unhealed mental and emotional state, otherwise what would be the purpose of the soul’s return, which according to the east is “to reach enlightenment.”  So now, the poor soul that has taken on a new body not only has the burden of the negative and destructive energy of the previous life, but the burden of the negative and destructive energy his soul will carry through the painful experiences of this life.  To have a complete understanding of reincarnation we must incorporate what the Sacred Text of the west has to teach us on the subject.

The Holy Bible teaches spiritual reincarnation through a spiritual death and rebirth that takes place while we are in the physical body. To reach spiritual enlightenment or perfection does not require the soul to experience many past lives through many bodies. But rather to experience the past of this life in this one body.  Jesus said we must “become as little children,” which takes place through the transformation of our mental and emotional (soul) energy, through which we return to the state we lived in as little children; pure in thought and emotion—  the state in which we were born. The transformation of our mental and emotional energy is the spiritual rebirth of our soul within our body.  Transformation is an act, process, or instance of transforming or being transformed.  It is the process through which we become a new creation as our “first heaven and earth” (formed through false perceptions and beliefs that carry negative and destructive energy) passes away (Revelation 21:1). This passing away is the spiritual death that precedes the spiritual birth of a new creation; “a new heaven and a new earth,” symbolizing a new mind and a new heart, which being formed through the light of truth carries no negative and destructive energy; the soul reaching “enlightenment” or “perfection” in one lifetime.  This is the teaching of the Sacred Text of the west.

The east is associated with the spirit, and the mind. The west is associated with the word, and the heart.  Spirit and Word, which constitutes christ; the healing power of the heart.  East and West

You have probably heard the expression “mind, body, soul” or “mind, body, soul, and spirit.”  The truer or more complete expression would be “mind, heart, body,” as these make up the soul: the vital principle in man credited to the faculty of thought, emotion, and action.  Through the application of the healing process given to us in the Holy Bible, our thoughts and emotions are transformed, made pure, our actions following, as Jesus taught us through his cup and platter parable, instructing us to clean the inside of the cup and platter so the outside of them becomes clean. The inside of the cup symbolizes the thoughts of our mind and the inside of the platter symbolizes the emotions/beliefs of our heart. If they are made pure, our actions will be pure; finding a healthy balance.  “The last Adam was made a quickening spirit…” The “spirit” is the power or energy that works through the mind, heart, and body; through the soul.  The word “quickening” means “to (re-)vitalize, make alive, give life.” Through this transformation process the holy spirit is revitalized. And with the revitalization of our portion of God’s holy spirit comes the regeneration of God’s word (Matthew 19:28), which forms our new heaven and earth, the word regeneration meaning the act or process of creating anew.  As man enters the third day, he is given one last opportunity to revitalize his holy spirit through the conception of truth in his heart, returning it to the pure state in which it was received at birth.  A new mind and a new heart equates to a new soul, in which dwells a new spirit (Psalms 51:10).  A new soul formed inside of this old body, as opposed to the eastern belief of an old soul entering a new body.

“Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? … Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias (Elijah) and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets… Matthew 16:13, 14.  But I say unto you, “Elias is come already,” which was for the benefit of the Jewish scribes, who understood that Elijah must come before Messiah, the “two witnesses” of “spirit and word” throughout biblical history being Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Elijah and Elisha, and John and Jesus.  Jesus is teaching us that it is not the soul, which is unique to each person that returns.  It was not the soul of Elijah that returned, but the spirit of Elijah, which rested upon John the Baptist, while Jesus possessed the spirit of Elisha.  And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood upon his feet.”  2 Kings 13:21.  Jesus said, “I am the resurrection.”   So now, through the Word of God, we understand that it is not the soul that takes on a new body, but a body that takes on the spirit of one that has come before.  During a past-life regression, my sister saw herself as Queen Sheba. She took it to mean literally, when in truth, it was the spirit or idiomatic expression of Queen Sheba she took on.  Any knowledge of a past life should be used to understand the past of this life.

NEW AGE & THE NEW ORDER

 

It was in the beginning of the new millennium that I was first introduced to New Age Christianity, which was no different than mainstream Christianity, a revelation I received in 2004.  It had just been repackaged in order to sell it to the masses.  What did the two have in common? 

Faith without worksSpirit without the wordEnergy without the seed

One could simply claim to have the Holy Spirit or be Spirit, without any further action. Through the power of the mind, and the gyrating of the body, one could activate spiritual energy, which is spiritual masturbation (onanism); a revelation I received in the mid-seventies.

This deceptive spirit, called the “energy of delusion,” was carried over in those that thought they left the dogmas of religion behind.  They may have left the building, but the energy that gave power to the old belief, was simply transferred to the new belief; one that teaches that we are perfect with respect to our spiritual state.  We just have to remember that, having been behind the “veil of forgetfulness, as it was referred to. 

In truth, it is not about us remembering that we are perfect, which we are not.  It is about us remembering (via the christ power) what took place in our life that caused us to separate ourselves from the pure spiritual state we knew as little children, moving away from love and light (good) and into fear and darkness (evil), which they have no knowledge of because the New Age doctrine teaches that we are perfect just as we are, and that anything considered bad or negative (such as disease) is just an illusion, not real. 

Interesting fact: the fabric used to make a veil (and I’ve made quite a few) is called illusion. Coincidence?   I think not!  The New Age illusion-doctrine protects the evil by denying it exists, this psychological veil obscuring the evil, an anagram for veil.  Coincidence?  I think not!

The “energy of delusion” that drives the spiritual masturbation taking place in the churches, was carried over in those that thought they left the religious system behind— into what the leaders of mainstream Christianity derogatorily called “new age.”

The energy of delusion took on a new form in New Age Christianity, causing those that got caught up in it, to commit spiritual fornication. Fornication is sexual intercourse.  Spiritual intercourse is communication.  When one buys into the “pleasing to the ear New Age doctrine, and sells it to others, one is committing spiritual fornication.  It feels good, satisfying the ego, but it does not (through its application) result in the conception of holy seed in that spiritual womb called the heart. 

Those that have bought into one of the many forms of this New Age doctrine or belief, will have to stop resisting the holy spirit; the energy that sows the seed or word of truth within the heart, which is the only way to reach spiritual perfection.  The only way to enter back into a pure spiritual state.  They say they are Spirit with their mouth, yet they resist the holy spirit of their heart, whose divine purpose is to bring the evil that exists in their heart (sub-conscious) up to their mind, into their awareness or consciousness.  They say “We Are All One,” unaware that the New Age doctrine they believe in, and are advocating for, is giving power to the New Order, which teaches “We Are All Equal.”  There is no hierarchy, no one is lesser or greater than anyone else, and everyone receives the same reward, whether they work for it or not.   All of which is contrary to God’s Word. 

Ascension (the process of returning to a pure spiritual state) is a hierarchy: a group of persons or things organized into successive ranks or grades with each level subordinate to the one above.  And if someone puts more effort into the process, he is counted greater (in spiritual measure or stature) than the one that puts in less effort, his spiritual reward, greater.  The New Age doctrine, like Christianity, offers another way to climb up. No works necessary.  Anyone can achieve an ascended or born again state.  You just have to say it with your mouth, remember it with your mind, or actualize it through the manipulation of the energy of your body.   Mind and body.  The Heart doesn’t even enter the equation, which makes this New Age doctrine contrary to the teachings of God’s Word. 

The New Order or World Government, is the external vessel for the unholy spirit that is at work in that internal vessel called the mind.  

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” 1 John 4:3 

The New Age movement gave birth to the idea that there was no historical Jesus, which is the spirit of antichrist.  Notice it says,  “it” should come, indicating a thing, not a person, which brings us to those of the New Age movement that do confess that Christ is come “in the flesh,” proclaiming that they are Christ, which Jesus warned us about.

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.”  Matthew 24:23

Believe it not, because Christ, which has become synonymous with Jesus, is not a person.  Christ is a healing power. 

The spirit of antichrist is playing right into the hands of the New Order.  Why?  Because, if the heart of man were to be healed through christ, known also as the “spirit of truth,” man would be truly empowered, instead of falsely empowered through the “energy of delusion” working through his mind, giving him an illusion of peace, the state of mind the people need to be in for the New Order to complete its objective, which is to control us, and take away our freedom. 

Capitalism is an economic and political system characterized by a free market for goods and services and private control of production and consumption.  Socialism is a social system or theory in which the government owns and controls the means of production (as factories) and distribution of goods.  Liberals believe that socialism is the solution to corporate greed.  They are all for the government stepping in and taking control of the “greedy bastards” of capitalism, as they speak.  They are willing to sacrifice all of their freedoms for the few examples of corporate or monetary greed. Why?

Greed is a heart problem, which cannot be controlled or legislated by government. Greed is a rapacious desire for more than one needs or deserves.  The Government feeds this greed when it hands out more and more money to those that do not work for it,  empowering the spirit of laziness that has settled over the people.  Spiritual greed is a lust for spiritual power.  A power many claim to possess, but have not worked for, deceiving themselves.  If we want to be authentically spiritually empowered, we will have to wake ourselves up, out from under the spirit of slumber that has settled over us, and do the spiritual works of God’s Word.  We will have to move beyond mind-disciplines. Beyond prayers, mantras, affirmations, intentions, visualizations, and the like.  And into a heart-discipline, through which we will activate the spiritual power of our heart, through which we do the spiritual works that make us spiritually free. 

Freedom within = freedom without. 

We, through our limiting religious and spiritual beliefs, are unwittingly exchanging the freedom of capitalism for the bondage of socialism.  Socialism grows directly out of capitalism; it is the first form of the new society.  Communism is a further development or higher stage of socialism.  The color associated with Socialism and Communism is red.  Esau is Edom (Genesis 36:8), which means red.  Esau forfeited his birthright for “red pottage,” which translates to “dangerous arrogance.”   To claim that we are born again or already perfect before we have done the spiritual (mental and emotional) works (via the christ power) that would bring us into this ascended state, is arrogance.  It has kept them from overcoming the spiritual bondage of their heart. 

Bondage within = bondage without.
