Was Lilith Mother of the Vampire Race?

lilith1        Lilith was said to have been the first mate to Adam, created by God from the dust of the earth, just as Adam. Because of this, she saw herself as his equal, Adam failed to see things the same way. After years of struggling between each other Lilith put and end to their marriage by refusing to submit to him and fleeing the Garden of Eden. Lilith came to live by the sea where God had previously cast down 199 angels that had gone against his commands, namely having relations with mortal females; thus fathering the Nephilim. The Nephilim have left in their wake a broad imprint in ancient documents, to include the modern day Bible. Known to have been giants that possessed unnatural abilities and knowledge, the Nephilim would later be tagged as Gods, and vampires.

Adam, after having calmed from their their argument began to realize that Lilith would not be returning to him. He shouted to God above him, “What am I to do now, I have no mate!” God looked down to Adam and pitied him. God then sent Gabriel with a handful of other Angels to retrieve Lilith and return her to Adam. When She refused, she was offered and ultimatum. In order to remain a free woman, Lilith would have to watch 100 of her children die every day. She accepted the ultimatum, but added terms of her own. For any male child born she would have dominion over him for 8 days, for every female, 20 days. Gabriel accepted her terms upon consulting with God and left Lilith standing in the center of the sea. God once again took pity on Adam and caused him to fall into a deep sleep when he would remove a rib and form Eve, his second mate.

By this point, Lilith had certainly established herself as the mother of demons, as noted in both the Book of Enoch and the Alphabet of Ben Sirach. Lilith, as a unique creation of God possessed certain attributes that her descendant did not. Having mated the downcast Angels, also unique creations that had retained their immortal lives and unnatural abilities, Lilith was certainly the mother of a superior race of beings. Inclinations of both Lilith and her offspring being known as blood drinkers exist in many ancient documents. Lilith was said to feed on infants. The Nephilim that she bore have also earned the reputations of being blood thirsty Gods.

Though the stories of Lilith and the Nephilim predate the Egyptian empire, many forms of documentation have been found in temple ruins where ancient Egypt once stood. Amulets, statues, jewelry, text and paintings all depict Lilith as a bloodthirsty and vengeful God. So, with all of this information in mind, does one form the opinion that Lilith could be the originator of the Vampire blood line. I caution you to ponder the legend and not form your final opinion until having read all of the theories of creation, as all of them have very valid roots and many forms of documentation that remains until this day.

The Nephilim Theory, creators of the first vampire?

To begin with, there is no “theory” of the Nephilim, it is a fact that they did exist, as stated in the Old Testament.

The “Theory” is that the Nephilim were the creators of the first Vampire. As a matter of opinion, I must admit that I agree.

Let’s start from the beginning!

Visit DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. today for discounts and perks!      Nephilim were the offspring of the “Watchers,” 200 angels that were cast out of heaven by God. The Watchers had become arrogant and desired to be equal to God whilst also they plotted to go down upon the Earth and take the daughters of man to mate with as they had acquired a great lust for human flesh. God had made himself clear that no angel should lie with the daughters of mankind. Though the bible is very sketchy with the details, the book of Enoch relays the tale with much more detail; possibly explaining why the book was not made a part of the original Bible. (The prophesies of Enoch are mentioned in the letter of Jude (Jude 1: 14-15).

The tales of affairs between mortal and the fallen vary. Very few references have been made of “true love” affairs, most accounts indicate that the women were not willing partners. Easy to believe as it was said that no mortal could survive bearing a Nephilim. Enoch relays the accounts in the book of Watchers, filling in many of the blanks left within the Old Testament as it was rewritten throughout the years. His account is as follows:

“And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood.” *

It also discusses the teaching of humans by the fallen angels chiefly Azazel:

“And Azâzêl taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjâzâ taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armârôs the resolving of enchantments, Barâqîjâl, taught astrology, Kôkabêl the constellations, Ezêqêêl the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiêl the signs of the earth, Shamsiêl the signs of the sun, and Sariêl the course of the moon.“

At this point God had enough and decided to wipe the evil from the face of the earth, the prelude to a well-known bible story “Noah and the ark”.

Now with this knowledge in mind, I recalled some research that I had done for a blog that I posted on “The Book of Nod.” In the book of Nod it is insinuated that the first Vampire was born of Lilith and Cain. This is not a big jump from the information found in the book of Enoch. The book of Nod tells that when Lilith refused Adam she was cast out of the Garden of Eden and made to live next to the Red Sea where it is believed the Watchers were residing as well. The book of Nod states the following:

For beyond the land of Eden, lay the land of Nod where Cain ran to. He saw lands to be tilled and animals to be tamed; yet he would not do God’s work. Cain cursed his existence and refused to give glory to God. He wandered alone long into the night; then upon him came a woman. Garments dark as night, woven from shadows. Skin as pale as the moon with a chill as cold winters grasp. Eyes and lips glowing as embers in the night. Cain questioned who this woman was, she responded as ” I am Lilith…second created from God. First banished.”Lilith of unnatural power; with the belief of a survival of the fittest. Lilith taunted Caine, showing him her dark power but not teaching it to him. So he took her blood, devoured her powers. Believing he became stronger, with the belief of survival of the fittest; he took it upon himself to taunt Lilith and the Children of Seth. The belief of conquering the brood of Seth and “if thee shall worship me, they are free to do so.” And so came temptation.

Two distinct legends based on two ancient texts; one having been written throughout a span of time by many scholars (some say even Cain had a hand in the writings) and one written by the Great Grandfather of Noah. Both collaborating the other through different venues.

Noah’s Flood-The little known Vampire Legend

Nephilim-exultant1      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.
