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?

How could an unborn child commit a sin so serious that it warranted the punishment of blindness? Would a just and loving God ever impose such a punishment? If you consider the Old Testament law of an eye for an eye, it would follow that blindness would be a punishment for destroying the sight of another human being. How could an unborn child possibly inflict blindness upon anyone?

Instead of such contrived theological arguments, would it not be simpler to say that the man had sinned in a previous lifetime? He was born blind as a result of the actions he committed in that life. I will leave the answer to you.

Now consider another passage from the Bible. I stated very clearly that John the Baptist was indeed Elijah come again. If John was Elijah, how could he have come again? John did not suddenly appear as the result of some kind of miracle. John was conceived and born by a woman like any other child that was ever born on this planet. Therefore, would it not seem logical that John the Baptist was the reincarnation of the prophet Elijah? Obviously, John was closely associated with my mission. Does it seem impossible that the spiritual being who was the prophet Elijah could choose to reincarnate in order to support my Galilean mission?

Today, John the Baptist is indeed an ascended master, and he is part of our team. That team has existed for a very long time, and some of the members of that team descended to earth long before my embodiment as Jesus Christ. They came to lay the foundation for my mission.

I have given you these thoughts because I know that many orthodox Christians have been programmed against the idea of reincarnation. I wanted to give you a gentle introduction to the question of whether I actually taught reincarnation.
