What does the Bible say about reincarnation? Should Christians believe in it? Where do we go when we die? Better yet, where were we before we incarnated into this realm of existence? In this episode of The TruthSeekah Podcast TruthSeekah is joined by author and writer Margery Phelps as they discuss reincarnation ideas and the afterlife. For many evangelical christians the idea of reincarnation seems posterous and anti Biblical but there are some obscure verses within the scriptures that give notion that souls or spirits of the deceased may come back to earth in other forms. There are verses about ghosts and demons as well as stories about conjuring up the dead where this actually took place and the spirit of Samuel came forth during a seance to speak with King Saul. On the topic of spirits we must understand that people die and bodies are destroyed but the spirit is eternal. During the ministry of Jesus many people were speaking among themselves as to who this miracle working man was as some said Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets. This gives some notion that the ancients Jews believed that spirits would reincarnate into other vessels. There was also a time when Jesus’s disciples were speaking to him about John the Baptist and who he really was and Jesus answered “And if you care to accept it, he himself is Elijah, who was to come”. There is much debate as if he was literally Elijah in the flesh or if he was operating under the spirit and office of Elijah. It seems that the majority of christendom believes that once we die we are immediately translated into the presence of God because Paul stated that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. The Bible speaks about others places that souls enter into once they are done with their vacancy here on earth. In the Apocrypha (14 books removed from the King James Bible that were originally within it) it gives details about the journey that souls must undergo once they leave the body. These books were taken out of the Bible for various doctrinal reasons.
