Reincarnation- John the Baptist is Elijah
-2-Matthew 17, Verses 10 to 1310The disciplesasked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must comefirst?”11Jesus replied,“To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.12But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to himeverything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.”13Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist. (NIV)10And his disciples asked him, saying: Why then do the scribes saythat Elias must come first?11But he answering, said to them:Elias indeed shall come, and restore all things.12But I say to you, that Elias is already come, and they knew him not, But have done unto himwhatsoever they had a mind. So also the Son of man shall suffer from them.13Then the disciples understood, that he had spoken to them of John the Baptist. (DRV)Luke 1, Verse 1717 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of thefathers to theirchildren and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. (NIV)17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias: that he may turn the hearts of thefathers unto the children and the incredulous to the wisdom of the just, to prepare unto the Lord a perfect people.

The type of reincarnation spoken of in these gospels has little to do with the Easternreligions and their belief system, the transmigration of Souls. In this belief, Souls incarnate ascreatures or humans, depending upon their Karma. You could have been a worm, a cow, or ahuman. In fact, you might just reincarnate as a tiger, eagle, worm or cow.This written evidence of the Gospels is also at variance with the current Theory of Evolution and the believed evolutionary progression of protoplast to beast, and then to human.These beliefs are NOT in line withSpiritual experience northe teachings of the Christ, asshown here in the Aquarian Gospel, verses 5 to 19 and 37 to 39 from Chapter 32.Barata Arabo tells Jesus,5)Time was when man was not; and he was a bit of formless substance in the moulds of time;and then a protoplast.6)By universal law all things tend upward to a state of perfectness. The protoplast evolved, becoming worm, then reptile, bird and beast, and then at last it reached the form of man.7)Now, man himself is mind, and mind is here to gain perfection by experience; and mind isoften manifest in fleshy form, and in the form best suitedto its growth. So mind may manifest asworm, or bird, or beast, or man.8)The time will come when everything of life will be evolved unto the state of perfect man.9)And after man is man in perfectness, he will evolve to higher forms of life.
