Zechariah 12:1 NKJV: “Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.” Each one of us has an individual spiritual part within that is who we really are. We die when this spirit leaves our body: “The body without the spirit is dead” (James 2:26 NKJV). “Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it” (Ecclesiastes 12:7 NKJV). There is no return of our spirit to the earth, in any form, and we only pass this way once for there is no second chance after this life. “It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27 NKJV), not another life on earth.
