Etymology Nirvana
1836, from Skt. nirvana-s “extinction, disappearance” (of the individual soul into the universal), lit. “to blow out, a blowing out” (“not transitively, but as fire ceases to draw;” a literal Latinization would be de-spiration), from nis-, nir- “out” + va “to blow” (see wind (n.)).
Familiar Spirits and Past Lives
When Nirvana is Finished It Brings Forth Death
You see them on talk shows, you may have read their books. You may have had these experiences yourself. People who have talked to the dead, or claimed they have lived past lives. It is a fact that has been documented in many places that some people have experienced what is called “residual impressions of former lives”.
So here is the question: How is it that there are documented circumstances where people, even children, have claimed to have been in another life, and have known details, unpublished, of some who lived and are now dead?
It is no great mystery when you understand the biblical teaching of an invisible world. Most commonly called the spirit realm.
The bible clearly tells us that there are, in fact, familiar spirits in the world. The Hebrew word is Yiddeoni translated either as – knowing, or wise; (acquainted with secrets of the unseen world). Or, described as an intimate acquaintance of a soothsayer. In the English bible this word comes from the Latin word (familiaris). Meaning household, family, servant of the household. This describes “spirits” that have familiarity with households, families, clans and various people groups. Information from these spirits gained by psychics, and mediums, is passed to the person who they are consulting with, providing pertinent information that only those households, individuals, family, or people groups, would know in any given generation. This gives legitimacy to the medium, psychic, or hypnotist.
The bible, however, proves they are very much illegitimate, for that matter, illegal. It is against the law of God for people to consult, contact, or seek the dead for answers, rather than asking, or approaching, the Holy (pure, clean, stainless) Spirit of Truth, who is the Holy Spirit, through the way made by His Son Jesus Christ. All other sources have the potential to lie and deceive you, and in fact has an agenda to do so.
The word of God does not support any teaching or belief that states: Man has lived multiple lives. Christ himself was not “reincarnated”. He was resurrected, and that is a world of difference.
Regard not them that have FAMILIAR SPIRITS, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
And the soul that turneth after such as have FAMILIAR SPIRITS, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
… Or a charmer, or a consulter with FAMILIAR SPIRITS, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Hunting For A Haunting
Often times people who have opened themselves up to psychics, mediums, spiritualist, or hypnotists, begin to have “experiences” that sometimes lead them to believe they have lived other lives. When they research the information they have received through these encounters, it is found to be vaguely factual in many cases. This experience also includes psychic readings of haunted houses, where information from the psychic, or medium, reading a haunting, will come up with information about events, or people, historically attached to that place. Mistakenly, these people take this information for face value believing that disembodied human spirits are roaming the hallways of a dwelling, or that past lives are being discovered in the remnants of their memory. It is nothing more than familiar spirits, as referred to in the bible, feeding these individuals with information that confirms their belief in reincarnation, along with the false assumption that the lost dead, wander between life and death, to give the living messages from beyond.
Those who have delved in occult practices, almost always become more advanced in a belief system that the bible calls, doctrines of devils. Their teachers are not the Holy Spirit, but impostors, liars, the fallen ones whose sole wish is to deceive and control human beings. There end is the Lake of Fire. These spirits witness generations of people on this earth who have come and gone as they linger in family lines. That is why you see things like alcoholism, suicide, mental illness, and failures repeated in cycles from one generation to the other. The knowledge of human nature and human weakness has been compiled and perfected through the ages by these evil spirits and they know how to manipulate those weaknesses, with in the scope of the family line, they operate in. However, the word of God explicitly warns those who entertain familiar spirits, not to do so. Those who go after false gods and doctrines of devils, will find themselves eternally lost, and separated from Him. They will encounter broken and mangled lives, to often minds, as well. The spirits have no concern for them, but are attempting to accomplish a higher agenda, and that is to destroy by deception, the destinies of human beings, and their original purpose, and rob from them their “estate.” Which is an inheritance they have in the Kingdom of God.
I Am Legion For We Are Many
The legion of evil spirits that the Lord Jesus Christ cast out of the man in the tombs, still reside in spirit regions of the earth today. Probably possessing another poor soul. It would stand to reason that the enemy has adjusted his tactics over the years, to be more effective in what he does. I believe that is one of the reasons why Jesus said, if men do these things when the tree is green, how much worse will it be when it has become dry? Luke 23:29. In other words, evil will become more evil; more expert at being evil. As he said in another place, “…if those days had not been shortened, all mankind would have been destroyed”. It speaks of progressions of wickedness in the world, as the imagination of men coincide with the experience of familiars as time approaches the last showdown between good and evil.
Mathew 12:42-45 43
“When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”
Lucifer knows the Word of God better than the greatest of all theologians. In fact I would say, Satan is a theologian of theologians, and would not be surprised if he has possessed a few of them perfectly, now and in eras gone by. I am sure he has inspired many books that sit in our libraries today. He is a master at twisting God’s word and even tried to deceive the son of God, Jesus Christ. Approaching him in the desert, to tempt him. He distorted the context and intent of the scriptures attempting to deceive him, and with the Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, Jesus fought back and overcame the one who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Today, the bible says that we overcome by the blood of the Lamb (the Lord Jesus Christ) and by the word of our testimony! Amen!
2 Corinthians 11:14-15
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
A Cruel Devil
So here we have it, famous people out there making a lot of money deceiving and being deceived. They are giving people “readings” or relaying information from a dead loved one to them from sources truly unknown. It would be cruel if all this was a lie, wouldn’t it? Well, the devil is a cruel master. He has no regard for the truth or the ultimate good for those who are deceived by him. Yes, he will use what ever prop he can to sway you his way. Even the cruelty of using the passing of a child, to “hook” a grieving mother, father, or sibling into his web of deception. When one knows Christ, one knows that the Holy Spirit is our great comforter, and he is able to comfort us with hope and joy, even in the face of devastating loss. Jesus said, I will never leave you nor forsake you … In my Fathers house are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you. That where I am you may be also…
There is an abundance of comfort found in the scriptures, the Word of Life, that is there for us to rely upon and set our hope in. The dark under world of Satan and his hordes can give no lasting joy, only a temporary utopia where the mind is deceived into a comfort that does not last, in a belief that has no ground for standing. When truth sounds the alarm and demands the lie to flee, the props of Satan and the mirage that is his kingdom will collapse beneath those who found his lies a refuge, because they LOVED not the truth. Because they did not chase after the Word of truth, and His everlasting kingdom.
How foolish to contact and interact with spirits from the unseen realm, and believe all that they tell you is true. There are mediums (those who channel familiar spirits) who have written book after book of the teachings of their so-called “spirit guides”, that go on and on with lovely, spiritual, language describing the world beyond the boundaries of our belief systems, that we must shed to become enlightened. How convenient isn’t it? “We must get rid of this archaic Jesus”, they say, “to become enlightened”.
When Nirvana is finished it brings forth death.
(The tragic end of all false doctrine.)
For Buddhist the Highest state to achieve is called Nirvana. Most people believe that this is a state of perfect peace or bliss. It is a “wrap up” if you will of the cycle of lives and the working out of Karma. But actually, the meaning of this word is more truthful to its true destination then most people realize. The word means to “extinguish” as a flame to a candle is “extinguished” or “put out”. It is the end of the cycle of rebirth and death. This, in itself, is a haunting reality to those who follow other gods besides the one and only true God. It is also the end of those who practice sorcery and spiritualism Yes, they will come to a time where their light will be extinguished as the flame to the candle is put out. But it will not be because they reached perfection, it will be because the one and true source of light will say to them, “Depart from me I never knew you … “ along with those, so-called, Christian prophets, who followed after the error of Balaam, and the murmurs of their own spirit, to please men, they are known as soothsayers, saying things that are soothing to the conscience, to ease guilt, rather than speak the truth promoting true repentance. Jesus said, “The words that I speak to you- they are life …”
Revelation 22:13-17 (New King James Version)
The Words of Jesus to John
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
