Biblical Ressurection; The idea that dead believers' spirits immediately transit into living believers minds, why not? I.e. the dead believers resurrect immediately and indwell the living belivers here on earth.

A kind of reincarnation/corporel possession? Sounds horrific to me, what happens to the real me once some dead person has taken control of my body?

If the spirit Christ indwells you, do you cease to be you? It is the same thing, "christ cometh with 1000s of his saints"

Jehovah is kind enough to prevent you from remembering.
My preferred pronouns are he, him, and his.

If you are referring to this passage:
Luke 1:17 and he will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared.
It does not teach that Elijah indwelled John, but rather that he would go "before him in the spirit and power of Elijah."

I must assume that knowing is better than not knowing, venturing than not venturing; and that magic and illusion, however rich, however alluring, ultimately weaken the human spirit.

I wasn't aware that's where the spirit resided, in one's mind. If that's where it goes in a resurrection I assume it would go into that of an infant. No? Otherwise wouldn't it really mess with a child, whom I'm told already have their own spirit?

It wasn't Elijah's spirit body, like John with the spirit body of Elijah possessing him. No, Elijah's "spirit" was Elijah's mind-set and ways of thinking (his impelling mental inclination) that influenced John the Baptist. Humans do not have spirits within them that are conscious and go on living after the death of the person. The Bible does not say that anywhere. Can you show me exactly where you get that idea? When a person dies he is dead and is conscious of NOTHING. (Ecclesiastes 9:5) It is as if he was in a deep sleep from which he wakes up only when Jesus institutes the Resurrection "in the last day." (John 5:28; John 6:40,44; John 11:11)

Elijah was a man of much drive and force in his zealous service to God, and Elisha sought a two-part share in Elijah's spirit, or, impelling mental inclination, as his successor (2Kings2:9,15) John the Baptist demonstrated the same vigorous drive and energetic zeal that Elijah had shown, and this resulted in John's having a powerful effect on his listeners; hence he could be said to have gone forth "with Elijah's spirit and power." (Luke 1:17)

Why not?

Good question.

Because the idea is neither biblical nor resurrection.
