I can't subscribe to this belief for a few reasons. It was written in Hebrews that man is appointed to die once and then the judgement. If there was a reincarnation how would salvation be necessary as souls would be recycled? Adam was not Jesus as pre incarnate Jesus walked with Adam in the garden. Too many things to comment and I find that posting via my phone is completely unsatisfactory! 😭
You are correct in saying that it is written in Hebrews that man is appointed once to die then go off into judgement. But I can find nowhere in the scriptures where it is written that the man Jesus walked with Adam in the garden.
But unlike yourself, I do subscribe to this belief. The scriptures equate the ‘MIND’
with the ‘SPIRIT’
, in one place it is said, “You must love God with all your heart, with all your MIND
, and with all your soul:” In another place it is said, “You must love God with all your body, with all your SPIRIT
and with all your soul.”
You are body, soul and spirit. Your body is created from the universal elements, and it is activated by the universal soul, which is the divine animating principle that pervades the entire universal body, animating all life within the universe, It is to the universal soul=LIFE-FORCE, that all information or SPIRIT, is gathered.
YOU,” as a human being, are Body, Soul and Spirit, but “YOU
” the invisible mind, are spirit. The body in which you, [The mind
] are developing as the supreme personality of godhead within that body, is made up of the universal elements, which is activated by the soul [Animating life force] to which all the spirit [gathered information
] of all your ancestors, human and pre-human has been gathered in its evolution to become ‘WHO YOU ARE’, and that parental spirit dwells behind the veil of the flesh to the inner most sanctuary of its temporary earthly tabernacle or tent, which is your physical body, as it awaits the creation of its glorious temple of incorruptible Light. [THE SON OF MAN
If that body in which your parental spirit dwells, were born without the sense of sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, etc, then no information whatsoever could be taken into the brain, and “YOU” who are spirit [Gathered information] could never have begun to develop and the living body, in which the parental spirit dwells, would soon die, never having developed a personality or “CONTROLLING GODHEAD” to that body.
Then of the Thee in Me who works behind The veil,
I lifted up my hands to find A lamp amid the Darkness;
and I heard, As from Without----
“The Me within Thee is blind.”----- By Omar Khayyam.
There are two deaths, the first death is that of the physical body, which is the womb in which God’s children develop, for flesh and blood cannot inherit God’s kingdom. And the Second death which is that of the mind which is divided from God’s immortal soul, which rejected soul is cast back into the refining fires of physical life again, where it will be given a new body in which to develop a new spirit/mind.
When the body in which you [the mind
] are being formed, dies, [This is the first death
] and your body of “skin, flesh, muscle, blood, bone, brain matter etc, etc,” has returned to the universal elements from which it was created, all that remains, is a shadow or rather, a facsimile of YOU, the mind or spirit, that has been imprinted into the universal life force or soul, [The collective consciousness of all that exists
] from which it will be resurrected in this, or the next cycle of universal activity.
Unless of course, the spirit that is “YOU
” is unfit to inherit everlasting life and is then divided from the universal life-force, which is the second death. For the spirit=information that is you, can be divided from the universal soul. Hebrews 4: 12.---------“For the word of God is alive and active, sharper than any two edged sword. It cuts all the way through to the division of the soul and spirit.”
THE immortal spiritless soul is then cast back into the refining fires of the six physical cycles of endless rebirths, into the physical life once again where it is given a new body or new bodies in which to develop a new mind/spirit.
Peace my friend.
