MESSAGE FOR THE WEEK OF 05-31-20
REINCARNATION IS A FALSE DOCTRINE – DO NOT BE DECEIVED!
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
We all know that sin abounds in this world and that there is nothing new under the sun according to the LORD GOD’S Holy Word. From the time that Adam and Eve were disobedient to The LORD GOD and fell from grace in the garden and were cast out until today, sin continues and will not end until The LORD GOD decides that enough is enough and then LORD JESUS will return. Sin originated in heaven when Lucifer and one-third of the angels rebelled against The LORD GOD because Lucifer wanted to be equal with The LORD GOD. For this sin, they were all cast out of heaven and now Lucifer has become Satan who is condemned to hell along with one-third of the angels that followed him. Satan is now the prince of this world and he knows he can never be forgiven and that his time is short, so he is working overtime, attempting to deceive as many people as he can with false doctrines. Just like the devil influenced the serpent to place doubt into Eve’s mind and question The LORD’S warning, he continues to twist The LORD’S Word and confuse people so they believe that the lie is truth.
This is why there are so many false beliefs and man-made “churches” in the world. This is why false teachers and preachers are leading many people astray because these lost folks do not know the true Word of GOD ALMIGHTY and are believing a lie. One of the many false beliefs out there is called reincarnation, also called transmigration or metempsychosis, in religion and philosophy, the rebirth of the aspect of an individual that persists after bodily death—whether it be consciousness, mind, the soul, or some other entity—in one or more successive existences. Depending upon the tradition, these existences may be human, animal, spiritual, or, in some instances, vegetable. While belief in reincarnation is most characteristic of South Asian and East Asian traditions, it also appears in the religious and philosophical thought of local religions, in some ancient Middle Eastern religions, Manichaeism, and gnosticism, as well as in modern religious movements like theosophy.
It is important to remember that according to The LORD there is only one church, the body of Christ, the true followers of JESUS CHRIST. Also, according to The LORD GOD, there is one definition of religion and that is found in James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
The LORD GOD recently called the icon used to represent “recycling” to my attention and has revealed to me that this is also a deception that on the outside appears to be used for a “good thing” such as recycling certain items so people can take care of the environment. What this symbol truly represents is the false doctrine of reincarnation. There are many people today just as in generations past who profess themselves to be pagans, who worship the earth (mother earth), the planets, the sun, moon, and stars. This is why so many people are concerned about their false doctrine called “climate change”. These people are more focused on preserving the earth than they are about taking care of people, the LORD GOD’S creation! Pagans often hold a belief in reincarnation and what is known as karma. They honour gods and goddesses and the nature of the universe. They also believe that there are lessons set upon their path to help teach them about themselves and to overcome the karma they have caused in a past life or earlier in their lives. YES, IT SOUNDS CRAZY BUT UNFORTUNATELY, MANY FOLKS BELIEVE IN THIS GARBAGE!
It is important to remember that we are all created in the image of The LORD GOD and each one of us has one soul that He has breathed life into. In Genesis 1:27 GOD’S Word states: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. In Genesis 2:7 GOD’S Word states: And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. We each have our own characteristics and personalities, we all have unique features that include our own set of fingerprints, unlike anyone else. The LORD GOD has lovingly crated each one of us according to His Divine Plan.
Each of us is created with one body, one mind, and one spirit and people do not die and come back as someone or something else, that is nothing but a lie straight from the father of lies, who is the devil himself, who desires to turn people away from the truth. In the book of John 8:44 LORD JESUS CHRIST is speaking to those who are rejecting Him and following their legalism and their twisted doctrines and states: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
It is important to know The LORD GOD’S Word so you are not deceived and the best way to do that is to have your own bible and to spend regular time in prayer with The LORD and study your bible. This is the life manual that The LORD GOD has lovingly provided to all of us. The answer to every question you may have can be found within the pages of this precious gift. Every word within the bible is inspired by The HOLY SPIRIT. In the book of 2Timothy 3:16-17 GOD’S Word states: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. This is the only truth that has ever existed and ever will exist in this world and in all eternity.
When all is said and done and everyone stands before the judgment seat of JESUS CHRIST, heaven and earth will be destroyed and replaced with a new heaven and a new earth because sin originated in heaven and the earth is corrupted with sin. Everyone will go to heaven to be judged and then it will be destroyed. Those who die in a state of serving JESUS CHRIST and are saved are blessed with eternal life. Those who die in a state of rejection toward JESUS CHRIST and continue to believe the lies of the devil, such as the false doctrine of reincarnation, will be condemned to eternal damnation in the fires of hell, with the devil and his angels. In Revelation 21:1 GOD’S Word states: And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away: and there was no more sea.
If you are saved and serving JESUS CHRIST as your LORD and SAVIOR, rejoice and share your GOOD NEWS with others. If you are not saved I challenge you to call on JESUS CHRIST today. Realize that nobody is a good person without the precious blood of JESUS CHRIST to cover you. According to Romans 3:23-24 GOD’S Word states: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Repent of your sins and turn from them, if you believe in any false doctrine including reincarnation, turn from this wicked lie and embrace JESUS CHRIST. Believe that He is the only-begotten Son of GOD The FATHER who shed His blood and died on the cross for all of us, was laid in the tomb, and arose from the grave on the third day to conquer sin and death. Get baptized as JESUS CHRIST did, fully immersed in the water, and commit your life to serve Him. It will not be an easy road, but the final result will be worth it. Remember that GOD The FATHER loves you, but He does not love your sins and if you freely choose to walk away from JESUS CHRIST you will go to hell.
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
TO YOU BE ALL THE GLORY HEAVENLY FATHER! IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, I PRAY. AMEN!
