Response to Buddhist Reincarnation Comment
Buddhist Quotes the following to justify Reincarnation
But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion,
to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them,
and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were
beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which
had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received
his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived
and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
“Regarding the two passages mentioned.
Neither of these verses refers to reincarnation.
In fact the word reincarnation and the concept does not occur in the bible.
The bible teaches that there is a resurrection of the dead.
The word resurrection cannot ever be used interchangeably
They mean two entirely different things.
It is not a matter of having a second or many other chances to get one's
life more perfect each time.
In fact some will be resurrected to damnation, the second death
- The Lake of Fire.
There is not more than one chance.
We have a document which goes some way to explaining
‘The Lake Of Fire.’
The rich man in the case of Lazarus and the rich man furnishes us with
some details about what happens when you die.
First of all it is not a parable.
Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me,
and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water,
and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Both men lived and died then they were rewarded according
to their life styles.
One went to punishment, and the other to a place of comfort.
Even the idea of returning from the dead to warn others of the fate
which awaited the rebellious is completely ruled out in this report.
The rich man did not even contemplate being sent back himself.
He asked that a warning message be sent to his family.
If it was a simple matter of reincarnation,
he could have gone back himself.
He would have been, as it were the perfect witness from the dead.
We also need to be aware that this discussion is between the spirit in man
of two people who had formerly lived, and not the physical human beings,
whom we are told that the rich man was buried, and the beggar probably
just had his body dumped on the continually burning rubbish tip outside
the city, as he could not afford to be buried.
This might at first appear to be an intellectual discussion, but it is not.
It is a matter of life and death and we need to make it our business
to ensure that we accept Jesus Christ as our personal saviour,
listen to and obey Him.
This is far removed from simply leading a good life and doing good.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is the only means of perfection.
It is not a matter of will nor mind over matter.
In fact we have to be very careful as evil spirits,
and fallen angels masquerade around as angels of light.
They make it their business to promote reincarnation,
and also the multitude of self improvement regimes which exist today.
There is much more to salvation than morality and good deeds.
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed
into an angel of light.
2 Corinthians 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be
transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be
according to their works.
It does not matter how many times one lives, the solution remains
the same, repentance conversion and receiving the indwelling Christ.
There is a very powerful statement to which we must pay attention.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth,
and his angels were cast out with him.
There are no exceptions to this statement.
We just have to pray to be delivered from the deception,
which is an ongoing process.
This requires the miraculous intervention of the Eternal God.
There is no other way.
There are not many roads that lead to salvation.
There is just one, and it is not associated with any group whatsoever,
but rather with the individual personal relationship between man,
and his Creator.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
It is clear that the way is not any type of regime but rather a person.
The Truth is a person.
The Life is a person.
Peace is also a person.
We cannot work these things up.
We cannot pull ourselves up by our own bootlaces.
Ephesians 2:14 For he (Christ) is our peace, who hath made both one,
and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
It is because of the above statements we can make definite statements
that world peace can never be brought about by peace conferences,
much less the diabolical concept of war.
However, much good our lives are, and how much good we do without
accepting Christ we see that all amounts to being filthy rags.,
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses
are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf;
and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you,
will seek to enter in, and
shall not be able.
Luke 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath
shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door,
saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you,
I know you not
whence ye are:
Luke 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk
in thy presence, and thou
hast taught in our streets.
Luke 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are;
depart from me,
all ye workers of iniquity.
Luke 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth,
when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets,
in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
These are the words of Christ, who was more than just a good man,
and a prophet.
He is the Eternal God in person.
The concept of returning continuously in some way to improve oneself
is not scriptural.
Even to believe that we can by ourselves overcome our inbuilt wickedness
by some self imposed deprivation or regime is an error.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately
wicked: who can know it?
As we stated in the document Reincarnation,
It is given unto men once to die and then the judgment.
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die,
but after this the judgment:
In Daniel which is speaking about the end time which is upon us,
a united group of nations will rise up and destroy the realm
of the anti-Christ.
At this time the kingdoms of the earth will come under the rulership
of Christ and his saints, who are His Bride and the Man Child.
We have dealt with the definition of the Man Child in the document,
The Woman, The Man Child, and the Remnant.
The meek are inheriting the earth,
Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
They are not on a self improvement course.
The saints are in a position of rulership.
Revelation 20:4 ........they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
However to be focussed on ruling is unwise as the greater the position,
the more we have to understand that our desire to serve should be greater.
Today most think of leadership positions and the various offices
as positions to control and manipulate others.
This is wrong.
Our goal must be to serve others as directed by the Eternal.
Christ is the supreme example.
I pray that this is of some help.
Be Humble Repent Listen To The Eternal God Obey Him.
This is very easy to say, but I assure you that it is physically impossible,
without the empowerment of the Eternal God.
Attending some Church, going up to an altar call, or isolating yourself,
in the hope that somehow it will all be alright, will not do it.
What are you going to do about it before it is too late?
