Exposing Vampires, Creatures of the Night, and other Romanticized Demonic Entities: The Seduction of our Youth
By C. A. Huft
So you let your daughter go to the latest Twilight Film, and your son went to see the Vampires Apprentice; novel, harmless, romantic teenage fun, right? In their search for more information on their favorite fanged heart throb, maybe they ran across a few websites you should know about; like the Sanguinarians, or Voices of the Vampires, or Fallen Creations a teen forum. These sites list numerous articles and teaching modules to help those poor, uninformed, hormone driven teens to find their inner Vamp. The word vampire comes from the Slavonic Magyar, which literally means blood monster.
Here is just an example some of the articles they can look up: “Cooking with Blood”, “How to Protect Yourself from Diseases When Feeding on the Sick”, or how about this one, “Safe Bloodletting and Feeding”. No, your daughter won’t be kissing her poster of Robert Pattinson, instead, she will be learning the ins and outs of sanguinarians (the practice of drinking blood). You laugh, and say, "Not my kid!" Oh really? Are you that naíve these days?
Do you know why kids are so drawn to this weird, macabre sub-culture in our day and age of endless escapism, lack of responsibility, no moral role models, entitlement, and frustration over their socially imposed limitations, and endless soccer games? Children feel alienated, when you feel alien, you look for other aliens. At an age when relationships are probably more important than anything to them, they feel alone, misunderstood and confused. They thrive, connect, and relate to characters who exude beauty, wanton, mysterious sexuality, superhuman powers, and abilities to "get back" at those who would hurt you or call you names, they beckon to them from the dark abyss. They can show their friends that they may be different, but now they have found a new way to control their out-of-control surroundings, exert power, never die, never age, with a quiet confidence that if need be, you would be nothing but a late night snack if you happen to overstep your parental bounds.
So here is a direct quote from the "teen" section of the Sanguinarian website:
"If you smell blood (someone got cut; girls menstruating; whatever), just don’t say anything; as well as we can pick it out, most people find it a little odd when you act like a bloodhound. Something you have to learn how to do is downplay things."
My gut reaction is "Gross!" Again we are not talking about fanaticizing that you are married to the latest, hunky, fanged lover, you are actively seeking out blood. Many overlook the fact that in the movie Twilight, he wants to eat his girlfriend.
Human blood is a river of energy; it contains everything needed for the body to live. The bible tells us that there is life in the blood. God gave the Israelites very strict instructions regarding the treatment of blood, both human and animal.
There are different forms of vampirism. A popular one is called psi-vampirism. This is more of a combination between witchcraft and vampirism, since it calls for focus, and meditation to psychically act as a parasite to an unsuspecting victim. They mentally drain their victims life forceâ€¦ they suck the energy from them. The dangers? The person will become sick, depressed, or even die. This is a popular form of vampirism as it offers a much more â€˜tasteful’ alternative to feeding on someone’s blood.
In much of the popular youth literature, the idea of feeding on a human is distasteful, or evil, so they turn to animals instead to satiate their desires, which is somehow OK in their minds.
Blood carries disease, even factory farming of animals, if you plan on only drinking animal blood is dangerous; salmonella, e. coli, botulism and raw pig blood contains trichinosis. Not to mention if you aren’t killing these animals yourself, you have to become very good friends with the local butcher, and the cleanliness of the blood may be a factor.
Leviticus 7:26-27 “And wherever you live, you must not eat the blood of any bird or animal. If anyone eats blood, that person must be cut off from his people.” NIV
Leviticus 17:13-14 "Any Israelite or any alien living among you who hunts any animal or bird that may be eaten must drain out the blood and cover it with earth, because the life of every creature is its blood. That is why I have said to the Israelites, "You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off."NIV
Once you get past the "yuck" factor, you begin to realize the enchantment that has been perpetrated upon your children. Vampires may very well be demonic spirit parasites who skillfully impersonate us in order to deceive or prey upon us. Ex-vampires state that they felt an unholy anointing, and an entity enter into them when called upon. They also state that the blood lust is as nearly as they can describe; viral, infecting them and controlling their desires. Many admit that without the saving grace of Jesus Christ they would never be free from the bondage of the compulsive ingestion of blood. Many admit that they would do anything to get their next fix; murder, not withholding. Although these are extreme forms of possession, all of the former vampires state that they started out with nothing but an innocent, vain curiosity to begin with. The occult set the trap, lured them in with the promise of ageless beauty, sexual prowess, and unlimited personal powers, but failed to tell them at what cost.
So why is the ingestion of blood forbidden in the Judeo-Christian tradition? We find the answers from the biblical text:
Any Israelite or any alien living among them who eats any blood? I will set my face against that person who eats blood and will cut him off from his people. For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. Therefore I say to the Israelites, "None of you may eat blood, nor may any alien living among you eat blood." Leviticus 17:10-12 NIV
Blood in God’s economy is Holy. It is a means of reconciliation, so it makes us right again with God, it is a sign, a covenant, that we now have a right standing with God. So it is a slap in the face to God when someone wants to eat, or drink itâ€”eating is common. Let’s use an analogy to help explain this. Say you bought your fianc an extremely rare and costly gemstone as a wedding ring. It cost you everything you own, and some kid comes along because he has a "e;need to feed"e; and swallows the stone, without regard for the price and value. Do you think then, you could easily see cutting this person off from his people, setting your face against him for his irreverence to such a costly item? It’s a simple and poor analogy to the price, God’s Son paid for us, but none the less it makes the point. Blood is to be revered, not treated as something commonplace and easy to consume, it is not a gory feast, it is the Holy elixir of life.
What else can we learn from blood? Blood contains many components vital to life, including one that many Christians overlook: Hemoglobin, which oxygen molecules attach too. What is the breath of life? Oxygen.
According to Strong’s Concordance:
A puff, that is, wind, angry or vital breath, divine inspiration, intellect or (concretely) an animal: – blast, (that) breath (-eth), inspiration, soul, spirit.
This is the Hebrew word used to infuse life, the breath of life into Adam and into every living creature.
Properly a breathing creature, that is, animal or (abstractly) vitality;
So we begin to see that God himself infused the blood of every living creature with his vital essence; life, the breath of the life.
With that knowledge of science, and biblical understanding, we begin to understand psi-vampirism. They are sucking the vital essence of God out of a living creature. It is theft; they are stealing what does not belong to them. Willing donor or not, it is wrong! That breath of life, that vital essence does not belong to them!
Satan loves to masquerade as harmless, benevolent, fun and entertaining. In less than 75 years the Vampire mythos went from hideous demonic, nightmarish creatures to this suave, sophisticated, hypnotic, seductive, romantic, fanged hero figure. I wonder who had his dragon-like claw marks all over this little ruse?
Leviticus 3:17 "This is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live: You must not eat any fat or any blood." NIV
Leviticus 3 sums it up quite nicely, it is a lasting ordinance, so it doesn’t go away, it’s for all the generations to come, and it doesn’t matter where you live, we are not to eat of it.
Vampires and vampire lore are an entanglement issue. Would it please the Living God to entertain demonic entities in your household? Could they be a most ingenious trap, set by pedophilia-like entities who no longer subscribe to human values? Why give a foothold to a spiritual parasite in your household?
