With the upcoming release of “Noah” starring Russell Crowe, I felt obliged to share the “other side” of the story!
I’ve written before in reference to the book of Enoch, don’t bother looking, you won’t find it in today’s standard Bible. How ironic that the writings by one of the 3 mortals that God chose to bring into heaven without subjecting to death were found unworthy of remaining within the Bible. Perhaps King James found Enochs’ work too controversial for mankind………
Enoch wrote in great detail about the Nephilim. For those of you that are new to my blog, the Nephilim were the offspring of angels that defied God by lying with the daughters of man here on Earth. It is my belief, along with many others, that such a union between Lilith and one of these rogue angels resulted in creation of the Vampire race. (For more information on Lilith and the Nephilim, search my past blogs).
As the Nephilim took women of their own, their offspring were born both divine and mortal; existing partly between both worlds. This new hybrid race became leaders of men as they were enlightened by forbidden knowledge and immortal strength. The Nephilim shared their knowledge with mankind teaching them proficient gardening including irrigation, design and construction of the most majestic temples and palaces, some which still endure to this day and instructed man in the utilization of herbs and elements for healing purposes. Mankind was becoming proficient in areas which had never been intended for them, God was becoming angered. God saw that man was no longer spreading blood upon his alters, instead the blood was being utilized for mankind’s own benefit. God saw that man was piercing the mysteries of the heavens and he saw their great weapons of war; God decided that the Earth must be cleansed of the Nephilim and their seed. The Nephilim had so intertwined themselves the children of men that nearly none remained that had not been tainted.
God realized the level of event required in order to extinguish the race and then determined to bring a great flood across the earth. The Heavenly hosts did not want to see all of mankind perish, therefor they would petition God to allow them to seek out one clean bloodline to survive the flood, a bloodline that had not been tainted by the Nephilim that had not partaken of the blood of others and that continued the old traditions of sacrificing blood offerings to the Gods. God agreed that if such a household existed their blood line would be spared.
The heavenly host descended upon the earth in search of a pure bloodline, after some time Noah was discovered. Noah was given instruction to gather his children who would join together to build the ark and prepare for the flood. As the last of the animals were being escorted onto the ark, Noah’s daughters plead with him to allow their husbands to join them, Noah agreed. The husbands of Noah’s daughters were indeed tainted with the blood of the Nephilim. Though the blood of the Nephilim did carry on, God did successfully destroy the Nephilim race, their ways and their arts were long lost beneath the waters of Noah’s Flood.
