The word “karma” is often associated with “Eastern religions”, e.g. Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. In these dharmic religions, karma is described as the reward and punishment system for the actions/deeds of each soul, on its path through each of its successive human lifetimes. By definition, karma is described in the following way:
• The totality of a person’s actions and conduct during successive incarnations, regarded as causally influencing his or her destiny.
• The law or principle through which such influence is believed to operate.
• Fate or destiny resulting from one’s previous actions.
Because the business of organized religions has been used to capitalize (£££/$$$/€€€, etc.) on differences in sectarian beliefs, “Western religions” (e.g. Talmudic Judaism, Christianity and Islam) promote the lie that karma isn’t scriptural. Put another way, according to the priests, pastors, rabbis and imams, etc., and most of the so-called scholars and experts, karma supposedly isn’t found in the Old Covenant/Testament, New Covenant/Testament or in the Koran/Quran.
Instead of relying on the spiritually blind “paid” professionals (Matt. 6:24; Matt. 15:13-14), the purpose of this article is to examine what our Creator has actually shared on this subject, which has no association whatsoever with ANY organized religion. This is a follow-up article to Reincarnation Is An Irrefutable Fact, as karma and reincarnation are basic, universal principles that are inexorably linked and undoubtedly part of our reality (Sura 31:28-30).
Karma in Scripture (aka sowing and reaping, just desserts)
The Old Covenant/Testament
Deuteronomy 28 (excerpts below)
28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the “I AM” thy God, to observe [and] to do all His Commandments which I command thee this day, that the “I AM” thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
28:2 And ALL THESE BLESSINGS shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the “I AM” thy God.
(verses 3-14 list the blessings/rewards for good behaviour)
28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the “I AM” thy God, to observe to do all His Commandments and His Statutes which I command thee this day; that ALL THESE CURSES [of the Law] shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
(verses 16-68 list the curses/punishments for bad behaviour)
4:7 Remember, I pray thee, who [ever] perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off?
4:8 Even as I have seen, they that plow inequity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.
7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch [which] he made.
7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
On the British Coat-of-Arms, the belt surrounding the shield; with which the people were to gird up their loins with great strength; has written on it, “Honi soit qui mal y pense”.
“Honi soit qui mal y pense” is Old French and it is one of God’s rules concerning His advice and Perfect Karma/Divine-Justice and means “Evil be to him who thinks it”.
The New Covenant/Testament
Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for THIS is The Law and the Prophets (see: Matthew 5:17-20).
Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his WORKS.
25:31 When the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the Holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the Throne of his glory:
25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats:
25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit The Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
25:37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed [thee]? or thirsty, and gave [thee] drink?
25:38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took [thee] in? or naked, and clothed [thee]?
25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me.
25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into Everlasting Fire, prepared for the devil and his angels (YOU that do not DO God’s Will):
25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
25:43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did [it] not to one of the least of these, ye did [it] not to me.
25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into Life Eternal.
3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only incarnated Son, that whosoever believeth him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life.
3:17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
3:18 He that believeth him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the identity of the only incarnated Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.
3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be revealed.
3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in The Temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: SIN NO MORE, LEST A WORSE THING COME UNTO THEE.
9:1 And as [Jesus] passed by, he saw a man which was blind from [his] birth. (re-incarnation)
9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did SIN, THIS MAN, or his parents, that he was BORN blind?
9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.
20:12 And I saw the “Dead”, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another Book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life: and the “Dead” were judged out of those things which were written in the Books, according to their works.
20:13 And the “sea” gave up the “Dead” which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their WORKS.
20:14 And death and hell were cast into the “Lake of Fire”. This is the second death.
20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the “Lake of Fire”.
Sura 2:272. It is not required of thee (O Messenger), to set them on the right path, but God sets on The Straight Way whom He pleaseth (Matt. 11:27-28). Whatever of good ye give benefits your own souls (Ezek. 18), and ye shall only do so seeking the “Face” of God. Whatever good ye give, shall be rendered back to you (Karma – Sowing and Reaping – Gal. 6:7), and ye shall not be dealt with unjustly.
Sura 16:30. To the righteous (when) it is said, “What is it that your Lord has revealed?” They say, “All that is good.” To those who do good, there is good in this world, and the Home of the Hereafter is even better and excellent indeed is the Home of the righteous,-
17:13. Every man’s fate We have fastened on his own neck: on The Day of Judgment We shall bring out for him a scroll, which he will see spread open.
17:14. (It will be said to him:) “Read thine (own) record: sufficient is thy soul this day to make out the account against thee.”
98:7. Those who have faith and do righteous deeds,- they are the best of creatures.
98:8. Their reward is with “I AM”: Gardens of Eternity, beneath which Rivers flow; they will dwell therein for ever; “I AM” well-pleased with them, and they with Him: all this for such as fear their Lord and Cherisher.
These are but a few of the countless examples of karma found throughout Scripture.
The Scripture of Truth begins with The Law that God gave us, which defines good and evil and provides us with the perfect reward and punishment system (with ample time built in for repentance). The Law is applicable to every spiritual-Being (Soul), in perpetuity (Deut. 29:9-15), i.e. throughout every generation and incarnation inside of a human.
The remainder of the Old Covenant chronicles the generations of the children of Israel for over a thousand years, recording how they were blessed when they even marginally kept The Law, as well as how they were punished when they didn’t (Exod. 20:3-6; Ezek. 18).
The New Covenant confirms The Law (Matt. 5:17-20; Sura 61:6-7), and is similarly filled with lessons about karma, and that we are all due to be judged according to our works at the end of this 6000 year testing period, on Judgement Day (Matt. 16:27; Rev. 20:12-15), by Christ (Enoch 59:9; John 5:22). The New Covenant also teaches us to differentiate between the spirit (soul) and the flesh (human), to be able to understand how karma works (John 5:1-14; John 9:1-3).
The immortal spiritual-Being/Soul, if awake and listening (Eph. 5:1-14), receives its guidance and instruction from the Great Spirit: our God and heavenly Father. Conversely, the mortal human flesh we incarnate can be and is influenced by Lucifer/Satan/Iblis (Rom. 8:5-8; Sura 17:61-65), who tempts us on this physical, materialistic plane with the pleasures and treasures experienced by the flesh. Temptations that we, as spiritual-Beings temporarily incarnated inside these human animal bodies, MUST learn to control (Luke 9:23; Gal. 2:20) and resist.
Unless these differences between the immortal spiritual-Being and the mortal, humanflesh (with its carnal mind) are clearly understood (Matt. 10:28), it’s impossible to see much less enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:3-7), where everyone knows that Perfect Karma is unfailing Divine-Justice.
As the Koran was sent to CONFIRM the Old Covenant and New Covenant (Sura 2:97-98, Sura 3:1-3, Sura 4:47, Sura 5:51, Sura 6:92-94, Sura 6:154-157, Sura 10:37, Sura 12:111, Sura 22:52, Sura 35:31, Sura 46:12), it too is filled with references to karma, aka sowing and reaping or receiving one’s just desserts.
There are at least 300 references in the Koran to The Fire, which is the ultimate penalty for sinful/unlawful, i.e. criminal behaviour (1 John 3:4). In fact, direct and indirect warnings about Judgement Day and The Fire are found in 104 of the 114 Suras. The Koran also includes over 100 references to the eternal Garden of Life; promised to those who change their sinful, selfish and evil ways, and learn to DO God’s Will, which is to seek the truth and do good unto others, as you would have them do unto you (Mark 12:29-31; Sura 4:135).
Further, Irrefutable Proof of Karma
ALL organized religion was created by Lucifer/Satan/Iblis to keep people AWAY from God, thereby preventing us from doing His Will here on Earth (Matt. 6:9-13). Because we haven’t kept God’s Law, and learned to lovingly do good to one another (in His Eyes, NOT ours – Deut. 12:8; Matt. 5:19; Sura 17:7-8), we are ALL suffering from the evil we individually and collectively think, say and do to one another. This is why so many are sick, weak and living in fear, under the constant threat of injustice, unlawful policing actions and war.
There is literally an entire world filled with evidence of karma, and that our karmic debt for all of this evil is long past due. As we poison the world with lies and with our unnatural concoctions, we poison both our minds as well as these human bodies. This insanity has brought us to the greatest oppression/tribulation of all time (Matt. 24:21-22), with WW3 already underway and people still don’t seem to get it.
The Israelite nations of the world, led by the U.S. and U.K., are about to lose WW3, as punishment for breaking our promise to keep The Law God gave us and teach it to the rest of mankind by example.
Perfect karma and divine-justice.
God, Who is just and fair in ALL things, does NOT reward good with evil, nor does He allow evil to go unpunished, whether it be in this life or the next. Everything that our loving Creator and Father does is for the good of everyone, to teach us right from wrong, and how to lovingly work together with Him and with each other, for the greater, common-good.
Do Good Works
Karma teaches justice and personal responsibility for one’s own actions, thereby encouraging the overcoming of all selfishness, the latter of which is a spiritually deadly disease. The more selfish one is the closer they are to spiritual death (Rev. 2:11; Rev. 21:8), which is why all selfish tendencies MUST go (Matt. 10:38, Mark 8:34, Luke 9:23, Luke 14:26-27, Gal. 2:20, Sura 6:162, Sura 92:18-21). The root cause of all sin is selfishness, and the ignorance and arrogance that selfishness breeds and multiplies.
The “Self”, by definition, is a separate entity, separate from all others, and from God. God is and teaches oneness, unity, as explained by Christ and written in the New Testament. Lucifer/satan teaches division to divide and conquer and wreak disunity and havoc everywhere he can.
The word “Self-ish” means “Self-man or Ego-man”. Someone who is “full of himself/herself”.
Self is ego (in Latin), and ish (in Hebrew) in English
17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep through Thine own name those whom Thou hast given me, that they may be ONE, as We [are].
17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the Son of Perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
17:13 And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my Joy fulfilled in themselves.
17:14 I have given them Thy Word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17:15 I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil (one – Lucifer) [in the world].
17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17:17 Sanctify them through Thy Truth: Thy Word is Truth.
17:18 As Thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the Truth.
17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe me through their word;
17:21 That they all may be ONE; as Thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in Thee, that they also may be ONE in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent me.
17:22 And the glory which Thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be ONE, even as We are One:
17:23 I in them, and Thou in me, that they may be made perfect in ONE[ness/unity]; and that the world may know that Thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as Thou hast loved me.
17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my Glory, which Thou hast given me: for Thou lovedst me BEFORE the foundation of the world.
12:23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
12:24 But when the POLITICIANS heard [it], they said, This [fellow] doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall DIE. The son shall not bear the inequity of the father, neither shall the father bear the inequity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all My Statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
6:5 For every man shall bear his own burden (responsibility for sin).
6:6 Let him that is taught in the Word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, THAT shall he also reap.
2 Corinthians 5:8-10
5:8 We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be OUT OF the body, and to be present with the Lord.
5:9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether in [the body] or out [of the body], we may be accepted by Him.
5:10 For we must all appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ; that every one may receive the (recompense for) things [done whilst] IN [his] body, according to that he hath DONE, whether [it be] good or bad.
30:10 And he saith unto me, “Hide not the sayings of the prophecy of this Book, neither let no man do likewise, for the time is at hand that all Wisdom shall be known.
30:11 And be it known that he that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. That we shall know our brethren by their sign.
30:12 And behold, the Christ cometh quickly, for a millennium will pass and near another and there will be made a sign in the heavens. And you will know this “Star” that called the wise and all-knowing to Bethlehem. Seek there the “Star” (Matt. 24:30-31) at the appointed time, and all spirit will rejoice in the reward, even unto those who come out of the body (2 Cor. 5:8-10), that every man according to his WORK shall be”.
Sura 16:97. Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure, and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.
Accordingly, shouldn’t we be learning to “walk the walk” (1 John 3:7-9), i.e. think no evil (1 Cor. 13:4-5), speak no evil (Eph. 4:29) and do no evil (Rom. 13:10), as we have repeatedly been shown (Micah 6:6-8)? Is there any other way to improve our karma (Sura 2:272), and help make this world a better place for all concerned (John 17:21)?
Always remember and LIVE by the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
Every soul is in the exact place it has earned a right to be in eternal time, based upon the collective good it has done throughout its life, including each and every incarnation inside of a human body. Our Father (Creator) has graciously granted each of us the amazing power to shape the world around us with the power of positive thinking, so why waste that gift on thinking ill of another? Good thoughts engender kind words (Matt. 15:16-20) and loving actions (Prov. 23:7).
