We can see that the original Greek meaning for Paul’s statement is clearly written in a chronological or ‘before and after’ context. This statement is of a progression of a set of events. Once we die we are indeed judged for our sins and most people do indeed wind up in the chastisements of hell or outer darkness.
Jesus taught His disciples quite a lot about reincarnation and the amount of time that souls suffer in the various chastisements before they are ‘purified’ when He walked with and taught them after His resurrection. You can read some of those lost teachings in the original Book of Pistis Sophia in the fourth section. (Be advised there is version of Pistis Sophia that has been counterfeited by satan and contaminated with occult teachings and symbols. Read the original translation by GRS Mead.)
To begin with, it is quite telling that Jesus never reprimanded His disciples for their reference to reincarnation when Jesus asked the following of them in Matthew 16.
Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? The disciples replied to Jesus, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
So we can know in this instance that both the disciples and the people of the day, accepted that reincarnation was a reality.
In John 1:19 the subject of reincarnation comes up again regarding John the Baptist… And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
In Matthew 24 the disciples were meeting with Jesus ‘privately’ on the Mount of Olives and He was speaking to them about the about the ‘end times’ and the signs to watch for prior to His return. He told them in verses 8 and 9… “All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” This is the time of the end just before His return that He is talking about and He is telling His disciples that they are going to be here in the earth at that time! Please read Matthew 24 thoroughly, it is irrefutable scriptural proof of reincarnation straight from the mouth of Jesus.
Jesus Speaks To Linda About Reincarnation
Here are some excerpts from Linda Newkirk’s website prophecies.org where the Lord has spoken of reincarnation to Linda on numerous occasions.
Excerpts From Book One Chapter Three
“Child, I am saying to you that he was indeed your son (in another life).”
Well, My Lord, people will once again toss out all for they do not believe in this thing called reincarnation.
“Nay, many do not, but go not with the masses or be concerned with religiosity. My Child, religiosity is a ritual devoid of me. I am not to be found in religiosity. Worry not for the masses. Write as I say.”
(Linda) Before I began to receive messages from The Mountain, Jesus sent angels to give me messages. I sent some of these out via the Internet. A message that reincarnation is true caused an explosion of hate mail. I was accused of calling up dark and seducing spirits, communing with the devil and so on.
Many still believe the rumors that I am New Age and a crystal user or worshiper. I get mail requesting me to substantiate my faith. My brother cut off all communication with me for a while and sent me books against reincarnation. Oh, the push is on to save me!
I am including here a message from Jesus about reincarnation and also verses from The Bible for you to read and understand. Seek The Spirit of God in all things and you shall not go without understanding of Him and His Ways…
“Precious Child, it is I, Master Jesus. I come as you have summoned me from deep within your heart. Look around yourself and observe the flames of The Holy Spirit, and know that it is I, who commune with you through My Spirit.
Precious Child, You have been weary with heat from summer, and pain in the nerves of hips and legs. You are weary that many have hearts so closed to greater and deeper truths of The River. In sending these messages, you feel like you are shooting arrows in the darkness toward no certain destination.”
“My Lord, this is so. I do wonder why reincarnation in not better explained in The Bible?”
“Child, at one time it was spoken of regularly, and most certainly known among all apostles. Yet, to know of reincarnation is not necessary for salvation. It is necessary for greater spiritual understanding. To know of one’s journey provides much, but does not guarantee anything. Excerpt ends…
“My Lord, this is so. I do wonder why reincarnation in not better explained in The Bible?”
“Child, at one time it was spoken of regularly, and most certainly known among all apostles. Yet, to know of reincarnation is not necessary for salvation. It is necessary for greater spiritual understanding. To know of one’s journey provides much, but does not guarantee anything.
I guarantee Eternal Life through my simple message, Child. Most all are infants. For this reason, I have kept my focus simple.”
“Then, My Lord, why have you given me this to carry forth at this time? Many wish to discredit all Your teachings because you have sent me with this to carry forth.”
“Child, it is more for your spiritual growth than theirs that you get this out now.”
“I do not fully understand how this can help me, My Lord. But in all things I wish to edify you.”
“Let it be known that many will follow you in this. Those, who reject all you say as they do not accept one part, lose. Do you see? They break their own backs because they will not bend. If you had refused to send as I directed, you would have cut off part of your legs, even your feet, which you need to stand. You do as told, and I will use you for bigger and greater things.
The child may not wish to do the laundry. But, as he does chores, he later learns to drive a car, graduates school and marries. If this child will not do as asked, punishment unfolds. You do not seek punishment, but to act as my voice, to do my will.”
“Yes, My Lord, this is so.”
“On the other hand, those who reject that reincarnation is law or reject you or the rest of these messages lose. These messages, given to you, will not be fully appreciated until you are gone. Then, they will be priceless. Do not expect a large market. You will find interest here and there. After the war begins, these messages will go far and wide.
You are as Jeremiah bringing the wicked to reform: 1. They do not believe that they are wicked (a delusion); and 2. They are not worried about a punishing God, as they do not believe that there is a one.
I wish this fullness of My Gospel to come forth at this time. You need to be concerned only with doing as told. Write it and I will take care of the rest. Depend on me. Rely on my word. Rest in the truth of My Word. I bring the means to get these out. Rely on no one else. Be still and know that My Word is Truth.
I am Jesus. I am Jehovah, Most High God of Earth.”

“My Lord, this is very sad, as this man is dying.”
“Yea, My Child, for it is one soul to hell.”
“My Lord, is this man one of the Ring Leaders, who never gets out of The Lake?”
“He is not, My Child. For, much of what he has done has been through ignorance, and he has taken such bait as that offered by The Pope. Child, there are many, many, who will end up in hell, because they have traded their souls for power and fame. Most of these are lost, My Child. They hear the call of the worldly, and begin to worship money and material. They become lost and know not why. I do not fault the ignorant, My Child. But, I hold great judgment against one, who knows truth, who knows me, and casts me aside for a life with Satan. Child, the punishment for this one is much more severe. Now, My Child, I do hope you understand why reincarnation is a necessary thing. Child, look at The Lake of Fire, what do you see?”
“My Lord, I see many, many souls in great agony. Many are cursing you. Some are weeping. Now and then, My Lord, I see one say, ‘God help me.’ Then to this one, I see an angel throw a life vest, and I see this one pulled up to the top of a dark mountain and given something to drink. Now and then, My Lord, I see one of these weeping being led to the door by this one, who gives the drink. The door says, “God is The Way Out.’”
“‘Tis so, My Child. It is not my desire to have any suffer more than what they need. But, you must remember, My Child, that a rebellious spirit is un-teachable, save it be through trial and error. And, this is a very long road.”
“So, My Lord, those who are the most rebellious will have many difficult roads?”
” ‘Tis so. For, they must be broken of self will, that a higher will can bring them to a better way. The way of the material is the way of destruction–here today and gone tomorrow. The way of My Spirit, My Way, The Higher Way, is eternal. Child, one’s journey is about recognition of me as Lord of Earth. It is also about evolution of the soul to higher, more purified levels.
Child, I cannot and will not wave a magic wand and cause negative parts of you to dissolve. Satan waves the magic wand. I bring you along the rocky roads of self until these are purified through My Light. This is not overnight as many in religious circles would have you believe. Child, this involves a great desire to walk a narrow course and it is great work to stay on the course.
The grease spots you see in The Vatican can never be cleansed with a broom. Neither, can The Pope wave a magic wand. But, I will give you, each of you, the soap and water of My Word; and you will do your part.
I am Jesus. I am Jehovah, Most High God of Earth.”

The following is one of my most favorite prophecies that our Lord Jesus Christ has ever given to Linda which also addresses the need for reincarnation.
The following is excerpted from Book 12 Chapter 61 at prophecies.org
But, Father, my question is this. You are Most High. You created all things! You created evil! You created Satan! Father, in Job, (Job 1:6) we are also told that Satan came and sat among the Sons of God! Father, he was sitting among the Sons of God, so he must surely be one of Your sons, though an evil one. Father, will you explain some of these things, regarding Satan and the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden?
My Little One, I am Most High and I set into motion all of creation! I create and I set up! I set into motion! What is created to be evil does evil and what is created with great light, to do right, does right with some exceptions here and there. The closer any is to the Source of All True Light, the more perfect and holy is that soul! The closer a soul is to darkness; the more difficult it will be for that soul to connect with Me and with the Great Light Source of All things.
My Little One, I created Satan and I knew what he would do. I put into him arrogance, rebellion, anger, pride and an array of behaviors, which are not pleasing to Me! I raised him up, nevertheless, to serve Me, knowing also that he would wish to supplant Me, to take My place!
I took two little innocent spirits, the two little cherubim, who stand before Me, and I put these into two bodies, which I fashioned. My Little One, they did not know evil, but were pure and innocent; and I put Satan in their faces in the Garden of Eden, knowing that Satan would tempt Eve! For, he is evil and he also disdains all true light; for he wishes to have power over it all! He will always, therefore, set out to destroy what is good and right! This is the way I created him to be! He cannot be another way. So, yes, I knew that he would disobey Me, that he would set out to destroy these two in My garden.
I also knew that I would, therefore, also have reason to punish him; for I must also justify My actions. I am Most High, a God of great righteousness and justice! So, yes, I knew how all would unfold with Satan. I also knew how all would unfold with humanity from the beginning! I knew that I would create a very difficult and harsh world, wherein I would cast many souls, who would return over and over again in their purification journeys. I knew that none could or would ever be saved from such evil and darkness if I did not pay a great price for their salvation. For, Satan would be always in the faces of My righteous and pure ones, seeking to utterly destroy them.
However, amidst such a terrible furnace of afflictions, in such a terrible place, I also knew that I would train, and that I would raise up a few, who would be co-rulers with me, co-rulers of all creation. For, in My whole Light Kingdom, which is far greater and more expanded than any of you could ever imagine, there are none, who have so suffered across so much time as the little ones, the little humans on this planet Earth.
For, I have forced you back, life after life, causing you to take on new bodies, your having swallowed your cups of forgetfulness, to face your wrongs, to face your unsettled sins, to try you and test you across much time, so that I could indeed harvest some, who will be co-heirs, who will work with Me as co-creators in all of My creation.
My Little One, this very lengthy process is about to bear fruit! The very first Manifest Sons of God are about to appear in the Earth! And, you, My Little One, are their spiritual mother. You were Eve in the Garden of Eden and you fell to the temptations of Satan! You came along as Sarah, mother to the House of Israel and you have been in the Earth as other very important mothers in this whole growth process of My Manifest Sons. I have brought you back over and over again, sometimes at critical junctures in this whole process, and at other times as an almost insignificant presence, as far as these works. Yet, I bring you back now as the birth mother of My Little Son of fire, the Little Manchild of Revelation Chapter Twelve. My Little Son of fire, who lives in you, will soon be taken to My throne and he will thereafter begin to bring forth great power into the Earth. For, he will go into the Manifest Sons of God!
My Little One, I know that many will balk at My words to you, which tell of the reincarnation of souls! But, they balk out of ignorance and so the ignorant will be ignorant; but those, who hunger after truth, will not choose ignorance and will not balk and mock at what they do not understand, but will seek me with an open heart and teachable spirit.
My Little One, you are the spiritual mother of My people the world over, both of the peaceful, loving ones and also of the unruly ones. For, you fell to the wiles of Satan in the Garden of Eden and because of such; you would bear first his own son, his own bloodline, so to speak.
But, Father, the Scriptures say that Adam “knew” Eve and they bore a son, who was named Cain. (Gen. 4:1)
Yes, Adam knew Eve, but the first Son, Cain, was the Son of Satan.
Father, this is so terrible, too terrible for words.
So, out of you came two lineages, even from the beginning, a lineage of holiness into which Enoch would be born, Noah and others, but also a lineage of evil into which Cain would be born, also Esau and many others. Do you see how the duplicity evolved? This duplicity was inherent in my plan from the beginning. For, within the humans would be the seed of the woman, a holy seed, and also a seed of Satan.
Now, after so may years, I call you forth again, My Little One, and I put My holy seed in you, even My own little babe, My seed from my own holy body; and this also reads in My Scriptures as the seed of the woman. (Rev 12:17) This holy seed is still in you, but it is now, not just a seed. For, My Little Son is an all-consuming fire and he extends by several hundred feet outside of your body! He is indeed a child but even so a man! For, he is now quite large, even a little giant!
And, even as it is written in Revelation Chapter Twelve, I put Satan in the face of the woman, who is you, My Little One! (Rev.12:4) I put him in your face to tempt you, to mock, scorn and berate you, to repeatedly rape you, to torture you and to cause you great pain and suffering! These have been your great tests and trials, your price to pay for bearing My Little Son of pure and holy fire and great light.
And, Satan, on seeing My Little Son in you, greatly wishes to devour My Little Son of Light; for he wishes to supplant Me. However, My Little One, I have sustained you! I have been with you through the unspeakable, daily horrors, which you have lived through and which you still live through. My Little One, you have paid the price for the righteous ones to receive My Holy Little Son and now you pay an additional price for the seed of Satan to be free once and for all of him and for some of them, indeed some of them to be My very own sons, even as their Father Satan is one of my very own sons.
I will totally remove the “mark”, the striated light pattern, which I put into them and I will raise up some of them to be my very own sons. But, your price for these, My Little One, will not be as great. In over forty-two months of your suffering, you have paid your greatest price. But, as you were mother to both from the beginning, you shall be mother to both as regards their inheritance in My Light Kingdom. For, this shall come to pass through My very own Son of Light, who is in you!
Blessed are You, oh Holy King! Blessed are You forever and ever! Thank you, Oh Glorious Creator! So, Father, through all that you are now doing, all of the children of Esau will not burn as stubble, as we are told in Obadiah 1:18.
My Little One, many, many of them will burn as stubble! But, it is My promise to you that I will set free huge and untold numbers of the children of Satan, who are in the hidden goat lineage. For, at some point and soon, I will begin to totally eradicate the striated light patterns from their DNA, thereby freeing them of the inherent lying stream, which makes it impossible for them to know Me. When this inherent lying stream is removed, huge numbers will find themselves wishing and desiring a deep walk with Me. I will then draw them into such walks and will ultimately save many, many of their souls.
My Little One, it is for you to return to Esau and to give back to Esau his heritage with Me! For, he was the firstborn; but his heritage, I took away from the beginning; and I would not allow Rebekah to see the heritage of the righteous go to the children of Satan. (Genesis chapter 27) However, now this heritage will go out, my heritage to the Sons of Cain and to the Sons of Esau, even as I have so told you herein. And, this heritage goes to them through My Little Son of Light, who is in you! For, he is also I; and I am he; and I come back as He to bring salvation, especially to the sons of Cain, even to the sons of Esau, to whom it was previously denied. For, through My Little Son and through My Kingdom Come and my will be done, my cup of love, mercy and grace is overflowing.
Remember also, My Little One, that Esau hates his mother; for he blames her for taking away his birthright. He has always hated his mother for this; therefore, when he sees his mother, he will hate his mother until I make him free.
Yes, it is true that his mother, Rebekah, did not take away his birthright, but I took it away, even from the beginning (at the time of Cain). And, as such it is absolutely counterproductive for Esau to hate his mother. For, his mother only did My will! However, My Little One, soon I will set free Esau and many, many of his children; and they will know that what I took away, I now also give back abundantly and with great mercy. And, with this, we shall stop for now! I am your Father Yahweh, yea Jehovah, Most High God.
