A Christian Perspective On Déjà Vu As Evidence of Reincarnation

skyMoon.jpg

The French words déjà vu simply mean "already seen". So, the first thing to keep in mind is that the term refers to what you might have already seen...not lived. There's a big difference in seeing something and living or experiencing it. That is why people will often say, "Watching is not doing." Now, let's get a simple explanation of déjà vu from a Christian perspective. But why would we want to do that? Answer: Because most people would never think the Christian Bible sheds any light on déjà vu. Therefore, it is pretty much a forgotten source on the matter.

Déjà Vu Is Proof Of Reincarnation?


Many are those who teach and believe that déjà vu is proof of reincarnation...proof that you've had past lives. If you are one of those people, we strongly encourage you to read our engaging and in-depth content based on biblical Scripture that proves that the doctrine of reincarnation is a falsehood. (See link at the end of this article.) The Bible even reveals what is behind the most compelling true stories of reincarnation. And now, let's consider a Christian perspective on déjà vu.

Remembrance, Forgetfulness And Déjà Vu


When we experience déjà vu, we're experiencing a sensation of having seen what is new, or having been to what is a new place to us, or having experienced something that is supposed to be new to us. For example, you visit a place to which you've never been before. However, it's as though the new place is familiar...like you've been there before. What's going on with that? First, let's keep in mind a fact that both science and life teach us: The brain does not always function perfectly. Even the "master" organ has its flaws, and sometimes "misfires". A lady once asked her co-worker, "Hey roll, you wanna go get a Kate?" What she meant to say was, "Hey Kate, you wanna go get a roll?" The two ladies roared laughing at the cerebral misfire that caused reversed word order that wasn't even realized until the sentenced was pronounced. So, we see that the brain not only mistakenly reversed word order, but that it also did not realize its mistake until after the mouth had pronounced it. This is only one example of millions of cerebral misfires that occur daily in people who are in excellent physical and mental health. Now then, we might justifiably argue that mixing up words is not the same as remembering something that is supposed to be new. Agreed. So let's take a moment to deal with remembrance. And if we're going to deal with remembrance, we must also deal with forgetfulness, because the two go hand in hand. And, the point is that just as the less-than-perfect brain can "forget" things we have definitely experienced before, it can "remember" things we have not experienced. We put "forget" in quotes, because all that we've experienced is recorded in the brain. It's not truly forgotten. However, we're not capable of recalling those experiences. For example, you do not remember anything about your birth despite having actually experienced being born. You cannot recall what the doctors, nurses or midwife looked like, nor the surroundings. You cannot even recall what was in your mind although you truly lived the experience of being birthed.

We do not even have to go as far back as birth to realize that even a healthy brain has memory issues, as well as trouble distinguishing what is real, and what is not real. For example, how many times have we dreamed, but have been unable to recall the dream we had only hours ago? As we're looking at déjà vu from a Christian perspective, let's look at some relevant biblical passages. In the Bible we read, "Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live forever. Tell thy servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation. The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me. If ye will not make known unto me the dream..." (Daniel 2:4-5). "The thing is gone from me" means, "I have forgotten the dream." The first three verses of the second chapter of Daniel let us know the king was very disturbed over his dream. However, he could not remember it (Daniel 2:5, 9). You might not find it strange to forget an insignificant dream, but a disturbing one should be remembered. Nevertheless, even a healthy brain experiences problems with memory at all ages.

Dreams are frequently referred to as visions or night visions in biblical Scripture. Daniel 7:1-7 is one such passage. Simply put, visions are scenes we see. Therefore, a vision can come in the form of a dream, an image in our mind created by our thoughts, something we see in a trance, and something we see in an out-of-body experience. Now then, let's keep in mind that throughout our life, we have a multitude of dreams we do not remember. That means we've seen a multitude of scenes that we do not remember, though they are still recorded on the brain.

Remember that déjà vu means "already seen", not "already lived." We also know the brain can be triggered by outside stimuli and images. So, there's nothing strange or mystical about experiencing a few episodes of déjà vu throughout our life. As we go throughout life, we can expect at least once to find ourselves in a scene in real life that we actually saw in one of our long-forgotten dream scenes. Hence, déjà vu. Already seen. Yes, it has already been seen...not in another life, but rather in a night vision, or dream in this present life. New Agers would have people to make more out of déjà vu than there really is in order to deceive them into thinking that déjà vu is proof of reincarnation and past lives.

We conclude our Christian perspective on déjà vu by considering what the apostle Paul said about his own visions. We're talking about a great missionary who was highly educated, and who spoke more than one language, which certainly required full brain activity. Scripture reveals much about him, and not even one Scripture alludes to the apostle having an over-active imagination or any mental problems. But this very intelligent man's brain was not sure how to "process" some of his visions. We read, "I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell, or whether out of the body, I cannot tell. God knoweth) such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell. God knoweth). How that he was caught up into paraside... (2 Corinthians 12:2-4).

When Paul had visions of the third heaven, which is paradise, his brain was not sure whether he had visited paradise through visions God gave in his mind, or whether he had had out-of-body experiences. The brain was confused. It only knew it had visited paradise. But it wasn't sure how. Should we therefore really expect our brain to always be able to figure out which dream or night vision it was in which we saw the scene that is now provoking déjà vu? That new scene that isn't really new, because it has already been seen in dream land? Of course not. That would demand the impossible: perfection. And we know no one is perfect. Even the most devoted saints who reached perfection in their faith in God were never perfect in the sense that they never made mistakes, because the brain cannot work perfectly all the time. A Christian perspective on déjà vu agrees with real science and with the Bible. It exposes attempts to use what is a natural occurrence with a simple explanation to support the dangerous lie in reincarnation and past lives. Don't be deceived.
