Not necessarily that the soul has to return to earth again to be reborn...to "come forth again" the Bennu/Phoenix, can be seen as representing the soul in its initiated form before the person physically dies on earth
The re-birth takes place during the present life-time, and this time the Father and Mother are not the genetic parents but the soul/bennu/phoenix has given birth to its own spiritual self out of its own ashes. Its creator is entirely from the spiritual realm.
This is a huge example of how close the AE thinking may have been (if you believe my explanation which corresponds with that of many others) to influencing early Christianity and certainly Gnostic Christianity was influenced by this when Jesus explains who his real Father is.
