Reincarnation and spirituality

TOPICS: Reincarnation is a very old concept - Jesus learned about reincarnation in the East - the man who was blind from birth - John the Baptist Elijah come again -

Question: Was Jesus familiar with the concept of reincarnation?

 

Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:

 

This question might seem shocking to many orthodox Christians, yet I have a good reason for asking you to consider it. Let us begin with historical facts. The concept of reincarnation has been part of religious life on this planet for as far back as we have recorded history (and indeed much longer).

When I walked the earth, there were many groups and sects in Israel that believed in reincarnation. Recent archaeological discoveries have shown that I was affiliated with the Essene community at Quamram. The Essenes believed in reincarnation.

I have told you  that I traveled to the East and studied and practiced the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. These religions teach reincarnation. 


Therefore, I think even the most orthodox Christians should be able to accept the idea that Jesus Christ was indeed familiar with the concept of reincarnation.

Now, let us expand our question a bit and consider whether there any indications of reincarnation in the scriptures. Consider the passage that describes how I healed a man who was blind from birth. After the healing, my disciples asked me: “Who did sin, this man or his parents?”

Consider why my disciples would ask such a question? Obviously, my disciples must have believed that it was possible for this man to have brought his blindness upon himself. Yet, the man was born blind. When could he possibly have sinned? I know that some theologians reason that he must have sinned in the womb, but does that honestly make sense to you?


NOTE: The rest of this answer is avbailable in the book: The Mystical Teachings of Jesus.

New answer: The election of a female president

2016-08-23


Question:
 Not that I want to look at one person − sometimes people look for a savior, for one President that can come along and fix everything. But are there any calls that can be done relative to Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, who seem right now to be the people who are most outside the power elite structure and who are interested for now in leadership?

New Answer: As America goes, so goes the world

2016-08-21

 

Question: Essentially, you have discussed domestic American problems. Many of us are from Canada and other countries, and I’m wondering in what context can we relate to these issues because they don’t directly impact us?

The conflict between black and white, the Civil War, Anarchy

2016-08-20

Question: There are a lot of African American men who are being killed in various ways, primarily by police. Then we have the church incident, and it’s happening all over the country. Because many of us work in the prison and jail system, we’re hearing a rumbling of “We’re gonna shoot back now.” And if African American men and gangs and other kinds of organizations begin to shoot back, it can beanarchy in this country. It can be really, really bad. I want to know what can be done from a spiritual level. As you said, sometimes a specific issue is not the issue to deal with, but this one is so critical because young people now are even saying, “If there’s another riot, we’re not gonna burn down the community. We’re gonna shoot people like we’re being shot.” Most people don’t realize that because they’re isolated from it, but I hear it every day. I’ve never heard anything like that in the 35 years I’ve been working in the jail system, and so I’m asking what can we do as a spiritual community to help?
