Most of the world believes in some sort of life after death. These views fall into four broad categories, Resurrection, Reincarnation, Universalism and Divinity. The Bible speaks of the resurrection of the dead.
According to Webster’s Dictionary, Resurrection means to rise from the dead, or the coming back to life, whereas Reincarnation means the rebirth of the soul in supposedly another body.
The doctrine of reincarnation states the soul of man reappears after death and comes back in another or different bodily form. It states the spirit comes back to the earth’s plane many times in order to experience physical life, under a variety of circumstances and conditions and that after physical death, we live in a realm of the spirit, gradually evolving in our consciousness and in our oneness with God.
Reincarnation doctrine is roots in Hinduism and states that reincarnation is the cycle of a person after dying, returning to about anything, as a cow, crow, or as another person. Some claim to have memories and abilities carried over from one life to another. The doctrine of reincarnation is nothing more than a lie from Satan to deceived people that there is another way to get to God. Satan is always trying to counterfeit the Word of God. (1 Cor. 15:52). Christ died for our sins, He was buried, and He rose again the third day according to the scripture.
And we will also rise at the resurrection with our new bodies and not as a reincarnation being. (1 Cor. 15:3, Roman 10:9-10, Matthews Chapter 28.)
Christ wasn’t floating around in mid-air nor after his’ death did He come back as an animal or another person from a past life. His same body the bled, died and was buried was resurrected, never to die again. Jesus was seen by Cephas, the twelve and over five hundred brethren after his resurrection. This is the greatest proof of the resurrection and life after death we can have on record.
