There is a teaching that life is a current cyclical judgment period, a period that we must endure and bear a yoke of for past iniquities. I am digesting it and need to organize my thoughts by writing this post- which others may benefit from.
The book of Ecclesiastes is heavily used to under-gird this concept:
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after. – Ecclesiastes 1:9-10
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new?
This sentence is setting the tone for the premise that spirits are included. When Solomon wrote this passage he did not discriminate or specify, he said: is there any thing new under the sun.
Hell is simply a condition of life
Good people endure bad things in life, this is common. Since hell is not some fictitious realm we go to be punished- your past life(s) is directly related to the challenges and trials you endure upon the Earth in this current state. Our lives are actually what we previously thought of as “hell”; and your life’s condition is a sentencing that was given to you at judgement. That judgement happened immediately upon your death. When you died, you got judged, then you came back to live out your sentence after a period of resting in the grave. The realm of “hell” does not exist.
Everyone has came back to the Earth after death
Everyone who has lived and breathed in the Earth realm has been here before. Nobody is “brand new”. Christianity does not teach this but it was initially well known, even before christianity was formally founded the Pharisees asked John the Baptist if he was Elijah. Despite him not having the remembrance, it was Jesus who confirmed that he was indeed Elijah. Beyond that, there are many who were prophesied to come back- Joshua, Moses, Elijah, Peter and even Yahawashi Mashayach too.
The spirit in which you are has faced a judgement from a prior life, and you are here now to live out that sentence. Part of that sentencing involves an assignment to find your purpose and a lot of what you do in your life will again be judged. A grace period is given in each life as a time period you have to get in line with where you should be spiritually in your current incarnation. If you don’t evolve beyond prior to the grace period, you will come back again (if there is time).
These points must be told and shared. Time is short and we have to stop being foolish by lingering in Babylonian Christianity.
