This evolutionary principal is not unlike a type of cosmic clamshell wherein the process of pearl formation takes place through an aggregate compounding of the spirit around what was otherwise an irritant or an unwanted speck of dirt.
Resuming last week's reflection on “the great Teacher of Alexandria”, the Pope said Origen “continually interweaves his exegetic and theological production with experience relative to prayer. Notwithstanding a theological depth of thought, his treatise is never a purely academic; it is always based on the experience of prayer, of contact with God. In his opinion, in fact, intelligence of the Scriptures demands, even more than study, closeness with Christ and prayer. He is convinced that the best path to learn about God is love, and that there can be no authentic ‘scientia Christi’ unless one is in love with Him”.
And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent from Jerusalem priests and Levites to him, to ask him: Who art thou?  And he confessed, and did not deny: and he confessed: I am not the Christ.
 And they asked him: What then? Art thou Elias? And he said: I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered: No.
And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias; that he may turn the hearts of the fathers unto the children, and the incredulous to the wisdom of the just, to prepare unto the Lord a perfect people.
Devachan is regarded as the place where most souls go after death where desires are gratified, corresponding to the Christian belief in Heaven. However, Devachan is a temporary, intermediate state of being before the soul's eventual rebirth into the physical world.

If Elijah was the spirit and Moses and John were vessels then Elijah is probably around somewhere now. If any of this is true then there are probably like 100 billion spirits all waiting on their chance to live. So the chances of coming back life after life is not likely. I bet there is a waiting line and way more to the process then we are aware of.edit on 28-6-2013 by deadeyedick because: (no reason given)
Elijah makes an appearance in the New Testament during an incident known as the Transfiguration.[43
At the summit of an unnamed mount, Jesus' face begins to shine. The disciples who are with Him hear the voice of God announce that Jesus is "My beloved Son." The disciples also see Moses and Elijah appear and talk with Jesus. Peter is so struck by the experience that he asks Jesus if they should build three "tabernacles": one for Elijah, one for Jesus and one for Moses.
I think sulaw on page one said it best. You are starting to get into spiritual needs to grow and punishment and that will drag the thread down i think. Humans would not be here if they knew why they are here.
I've read that twin flames typically incarnate as brother and sister, father and mother, parent and child, as both male and female, so what if twin flames both incarnate as say...in male bodies at the same time and feel drawn to each other?
For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John:  And if you will receive it, he is Elias that is to come.  He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
