Why Does Man Not Remember His Previous Life?

Oh, poor men! Not knowing that they are the noble princes, they are enslaved to Satan and eventually face eternal destruction. How pitiful! If men had thought of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. But they do not know their own country, and finally they meet their end in the den of death.

Why do all men not know the country they left? It’s because their spirit puts on flesh. When the spirit wears the body, spiritual memory of the previous life is completely lost and a physical intelligence develops.

All men put on the veil of sin, so they cannot remember their previous lives. For the mortal men, having fallen into sin, God established the administration of redemption. And He showed dimly the previous life to the prophets whom He sent in each age. So if we put all the related verses together and study them, we will understand who the Father of our spirits is and how we existed before coming to this world. But none of the earthly men will understand the heavenly things by themselves, though they study all the Scriptures. The prophet Isaiah wrote in regard to this as follows: Isaiah 29:11-12 and Paul wrote: 2 Timothy 3:16.

Moses’ record of the Creation is a revelation given by God. To ordinary people, however, it is like words sealed in a scroll. Only those who accept the truth, though putting on the veil of sin, can understand how our soul was created and how we lived before the creation of the world. For this, we need to study the history of the heavenly [angelic] world as well as the earthly one.
