  1. There have been people that have come back to life, a few actually. here is a couple. (Eutychus and Lazarus)
    EUTYCHUS:
    Act 20:9 And there sat in the window a certain young man named Eutychus, borne down with deep sleep; and as Paul discoursed yet longer, being borne down by his sleep he fell down from the third story, and was taken up dead.
    Act 20:10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Make ye no ado; for his life is in him.
    Act 20:11 And when he was gone up, and had broken the bread, and eaten, and had talked with them a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.
    Act 20:12 And they brought the lad alive, and were not a little comforted.
    LAZARUS:
    Joh 11:43 And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
    Joh 11:44 He that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
    When you talk about dieing and going to hell or heaven, this isnt the case, when your dead your dead. Job 17:13 If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness. (no reincarnation)
    We have to wait for Jesus at his second coming and he will blow his trumpet and then we become immortal.
    1Co 15:52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
    1Co 15:54 But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
    If Eutychus and Lazarus were brought back from Heaven then there would have been an account of it in the Bible. Christ was Lazarus friend. So if he was walking the streets of Heaven why would he bring him back to this terrible world. It wouldnt be to help Lazarus.

  2. Bg 15.8 P The Yoga of the Supreme Person
    At the time of death, the consciousness he has created will carry him on to the next type of body. If he has made his consciousness like that of a cat or dog, he is sure to change to a cat’s or dog’s body. And, if he has fixed his consciousness on godly consciousness, he will be transferred to Krsnaloka in the spiritual world and will associate with Krsna. It is a false claim that after the annihilation of this body everything is finished. The individual soul is transmigrating from one body to another, and his present body and present activities are the background of his next body. One gets a different body according to karma, and he has to quit this body in due course. It is stated here that the subtle body, which carries the conception of the next body, develops another body in the next life. This process of transmigrating from one body to another and struggling while in the body is called karsati or struggle for existence.

    In dreams we sometimes see things that we have never experienced in the present body. Sometimes in dreams we think that we are flying in the sky, although we have no experience of flying. This means that once in a previous life, either as a demigod or astronaut, we flew in the sky. The impression is there in the stockpile of the mind, and it suddenly expresses itself. It is like fermentation taking place in the depths of water, which sometimes manifests itself in bubbles on the water’s surface. Sometimes we dream of coming to a place we have never known or experienced in this lifetime, but this is proof that in a past life we experienced this. The impression is kept within the mind and sometimes becomes manifest either in dream or in thought. The conclusion is that the mind is the storehouse of various thoughts and experiences undergone during our past lives. Thus there is a chain of continuation from one life to another, from previous lives to this life, and from this life to future lives. This is also sometimes proved by saying that a man is a born poet, a born scientist or a born devotee. If, like Maharaja Ambarisa, we think of Krsna constantly in this life (sa vai manah krsna-padaravindayoh), we will certainly be transferred to the kingdom of God at the time of death. Even if our attempt to be Krsna conscious is not complete, our Krsna consciousness will continue in the next life. This is confirmed in Bhagavad-gita (6.41):
    prapya punya-krtam lokan
    usitva sasvatih samah
    sucinam srimatam gehe
    yoga-bhrasto ‘bhijayate
    “The unsuccessful yogi, after many, many years of enjoyment on the planets of the pious living entities, is born into a family of righteous people, or into a family of rich aristocracy.”
    If we rigidly follow the principles of meditation on Krsna, there is no doubt that in our next life we will be transferred to Krsnaloka, Goloka Vrndavana.
    SB 4.29.66 Talks Between Narada and King Pracinabarhi
    O King, all good fortune unto you! The mind is the cause of the living entity’s attaining a certain type of body in accordance with his association with material nature. According to one’s mental composition, one can understand what the living entity was in his past life as well as what kind of body he will have in the future. Thus the mind indicates the past and future bodies.
    PURPORT
    The mind is the index of information about one’s past and future lives. If a man is a devotee of the Lord, he cultivated devotional service in his previous life. Similarly, if one’s mind is criminal, he was criminal in his last life. In the same way, according to the mind, we can understand what will happen in a future life.
    SB 7.15.69 P Instructions for Civilized Human Beings
    “By human calculation, a thousand ages taken together is the duration of Brahma’s one day. And such also is the duration of his night.” Bhagavan Sri Krsna can remember incidents from millions of years ago. Similarly, His pure devotee like Narada Muni can also remember incidents from a past life millions and millions of years ago.

  3. Yes, Reincarnation is definitely there, not just once or twice, every moment you are reincarnating. From childhood to old age everymoment the body of yours where Chaitanya reside goes on becoming new, just like a flame one moment is not the same the next moment the reincarnation of your body goes on every moment keeping your name for the Chaitanya nested inside.
    Even beyond this visible aspects, Bhagavad Gita also talks of a Larger Induction of this micro process into a Macro Aspect even beyond the Life Times of One Name or Another.
    Here a few thoughts regarding the beyond.

    Bhagavan Sri Sathyasai Baba says,
    “God is no partial benefactor. He gives the fruit from every tree according to the seed. If you had planted the seed of a sour variety of mango, then why lament that the fruit that you got is not sweet? Do good and aspire to get the fruit of goodness – that is pardonable. At least, it is not as bad as doing evil deeds and blaming God for its consequences.”

  4. Reincarnation is a staple in the Vedic tradition. It is affirmed by both Hindu and Buddhist belief. The most charming is believed by the Buddhists of Tibet. In their religion, the returning soul spiritually visits the couples who are about to give birth, and chooses which parents will birth him/her.
    Buddhists have no prophet, only a life to be emulated. Buddha was not a Deity, but a life well lived, and a way to which to aspire.
    The Gautama Buddha was a Hindu, and in that religion, you can come back as a lesser or greater incarnation. When you finally get it right, you enter into a state of Nirvana, at one with the universe.

  5. I’m not afraid to say that I don’t know what happens after death. I’m not religious and don’t believe in hell. Of all the ideas and beliefs (assuming there is a life after death which I am not totally sold on) I like the thought of reincarnation the most. The thought of having numerous rounds of life is appealing to me. However, if that is so, I hope this is my last round on earth. I don’t want to be around for what seems to be inevitable some day.

  6. Definition: The belief that one is reborn in one or more successive existences, which may be human or animal. Usually it is an intangible ?soul? that is believed to be reborn in another body. Not a Bible teaching.
    Does the Bible contain evidence of belief in reincarnation?
    Does Matthew 17:12, 13 reflect a belief in reincarnation?
    Matt. 17:12, 13: ?[Jesus said:] ?Elijah has already come and they did not recognize him but did with him the things they wanted. In this way also the Son of man is destined to suffer at their hands.? Then the disciples perceived that he spoke to them about John the Baptist.?
    Did this mean that John the Baptist was a reincarnated Elijah? When Jewish priests asked John, ?Are you Elijah?? he said, ?I am not.? (John 1:21) What, then, did Jesus mean? As Jehovah?s angel foretold, John went before Jehovah?s Messiah ?with Elijah?s spirit and power, to turn back the hearts of fathers to children and the disobedient ones to the practical wisdom of righteous ones, to get ready for Jehovah a prepared people.? (Luke 1:17) So John the Baptist was fulfilling prophecy by doing a work like that of the prophet Elijah.?Mal. 4:5, 6.
    Is reincarnation indicated by the account at John 9:1, 2?
    John 9:1, 2: ?Now as he [Jesus] was passing along he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him: ?Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, so that he was born blind???
    Is it possible that these disciples had been influenced by the belief of the Jewish Pharisees, who said that ?the souls of good men only are removed into other bodies?? (Wars of the Jews, Josephus, Book II, chap. VIII, par. 14) It is not likely, since their question does not imply that they thought he was a ?good man.? It is more likely that as Jesus? disciples they believed the Scriptures and knew that the soul dies. Yet, since even a baby in the womb has life and was conceived in sin, they may have wondered whether such an unborn child could have sinned, resulting in his blindness. In any event, Jesus? answer did not support either reincarnation or the idea that a child yet in its mother?s womb sins before birth. Jesus himself answered: ?Neither this man sinned nor his parents.? (John 9:3) Jesus knew that, because we are offspring of Adam, there is an inheritance of human defects and imperfections. Using the situation to magnify God, Jesus healed the blind man.
    Does the Bible?s teaching about the soul and death allow for reincarnation?
    Genesis 2:7 states: ?Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul.? Notice that the man himself was the soul; the soul was not immaterial, separate and distinct from the body. ?The soul that is sinning?it itself will die.? (Ezek. 18:4, 20) And a deceased person is referred to as a ?dead soul.? (Num. 6:6) At death, ?his spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.? (Ps. 146:4) So when someone dies, the complete person is dead; there is nothing that remains alive and that could pass into another body. (For further details, see the main headings ?Soul? and ?Death.?)
    Eccl. 3:19: ?There is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies.? (As in the case of humans, nothing survives at the death of an animal. There is nothing that can experience rebirth in another body.)
    Eccl. 9:10: ?All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol, the place to which you are going.? (It is not into another body but into Sheol, the common grave of mankind, that the dead go.)
    How much of a difference is there between reincarnation and the hope held out in the Bible?
    Reincarnation: According to this belief, when a person dies, the soul, the ?real self,? passes on to a better existence if the individual has lived a good and proper life, but possibly to existence as an animal if his record has been more bad than good. Each rebirth, it is believed, brings the individual back into this same system of things, where he will face further suffering and eventual death. The cycles of rebirth are viewed as virtually endless. Is such a future really what awaits you? Some believe that the only way of escape is by extinguishing all desire for things pleasing to the senses. To what do they escape? To what some describe as unconscious life.
    Bible: According to the Bible, the soul is the complete person. Even though a person may have done bad things in the past, if he repents and changes his ways, Jehovah God will forgive him. (Ps. 103:12, 13) When a person dies, nothing survives. Death is like a deep, dreamless sleep. There will be a resurrection of the dead. This is not a reincarnation but a bringing back to life of the same personality. (Acts 24:15) For most people, the res
