BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT
The man is composed of body, soul and spirit.
The result of the union of the body with the spirit is the soul.
A man is a soul, because he has body and spirit (Genesis 2:7).
The soul is the life.
When the spirit leaves the body, the man dies, that is, the soul of the man dies (Ezekiel 18:4), and the man becomes without life, that is, without soul, and only remains the dead body.
The dead cannot do anything, and are as if they were sleeping, until the day of the resurrection, when they will be awoken by God (Psalms 115:17, Job 3:11-19, Ecclesiastes 9:5 and Daniel 12:2).
The dead cannot speak, nor to hear, nor to do anything, because it is written in Psalms 115:17 that the dead do not praise God, and that when a person dies he goes down to silence, and it is written in Job 3:11-19 that the dead rest and sleep, and that the wicked who have died cease to disturb, and it is written in Ecclesiastes 9:5 that the dead do not know anything, and it is written in Daniel 12:2 that the dead are sleeping in the dust of the ground, and will only wake up in the end of time, when God resuscitates the dead.
In the resurrection, the dead will be resuscitated in flesh.
The human being is flesh (Genesis 6:3).
The spirit of a person only is the spirit of that person because it is animating the body of that person.
Therefore, the doctrine of reincarnation is totally absurd, because the identity of each person is in his body, and it is not possible the spirit of a person to incarnate in another person.
Also absurd is the Spiritist doctrine which says that it is possible the spirit of a dead person to enter the body of a living person, because the dead cannot do anything.
Therefore, we know that the spirits that manifest themselves in the Spiritist centers in reality are malign spirits, demons, that simulate to be spirits of dead people, in order to deceive the people, and cause them to make questions and requests to dead people, thus violating the commandments of God, that are in Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
The Spiritualist doctrines are satanic.
It is interesting to notice that the verse Isaiah 66:24 shows that even in the new land people will continue to be of flesh, what shows to be false the doctrine of Paul that is in 1 Corinthians 15, where he says that in the resurrection we will have spiritual bodies, and that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 15:50).
That is one more proof that Paul of Tarsus was not from God.
Yahveh bless you.
