Does the Bible Teach Reincarnation?

I've always wondered about the concept of "few" --- it goes against the grain of logical thinking that Satan would win more souls than the God of creation.

As to torment - I believe being separated from the giver of life is the ultimate torment.

I still think there is more to this mystery. It could involve... reincarnation...




Interesting. Do you know of any biblical passages supporting reincarnation?


Matthew 5:19-20 New King James Version
"Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven."

First of all, there is no "end of the world". Even during the coming millennium people of this present world who survive the tribulation, will have an opportunity to be saved, with Jesus and the saints walking the earth. God could've reincarnated the unsaved of this age onto another planet/civilization giving them an other chance to be saved. Other questions arise: Why should children get a free pass to Heaven when they were born with a fallen nature? What of all those before Christ around the world born with a fallen nature? Maybe all of us have lived our whole lives in a test tube of sorts with every thing around us as props on a stage like in the Truman Story movie. Is any thing impossible for God? Clearly, there must be much more to the information we've been given so far. Even at the end of the millennium the number of the lost will be "as the sands of the sea".

Even reincarnation makes some logical, if not biblical sense. Perhaps in some form we haven't been privy to, especially when one thinks of their own family members who might have missed salvation because they were deceived.
Have you ever looked into what Judaism teaches about reincarnation? Or, what the beliefs of the Israelis were during the time of Christ concerning reincarnation? Are there any New Testament texts that hint at the idea that reincarnation may have been a popular belief during the time of Christ? For that matter, what about the Old Testament texts or the Apocrypha?


Matthew 5:19-20 New King James Version
"Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven."

There are two fates for all men.

If they are saved and born again then they will be with the Lord Jesus and the saints and angels in Heaven.

If unsaved they will go to a literal burning Hell for ever.

There is a third: If you survive the tribulation you will live during the millennium when 1/3 of the Jews who are saved at Christ's return will evangelize the world. Dake makes this very clear.

That's actually why I asked Dolph the following:

In my research, I've discovered that there are actually many different beliefs about reincarnation that vary quite a bit from one another. Some of the Jewish beliefs are very interesting and don't work in any way like most people I know would understand reincarnation to work from a pop-spirituality perspective.


Matthew 5:19-20 New King James Version
"Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
