I have decided I am going to read the bible cover to cover.  It may take me forever to do it but I am.

I haven't read it like that since I was still in school.  Which seems like forever ago.  Funny thing is I have recently seen a guy at church who I used to hang out with (in a group of us) back in high school.  I haven't been able to catch up to him to see if he remembers me.  Plus I am always a bit shy in those situations. 

Back to the bible.  I have only gotten a little ways through Genesis and I can't believe I didn't remember that the early people discussed lived for hundreds of years each.  Crazy.

This is probably so not politically correct but if I am going to be honest about what crosses my mind I have to say this.   When someone is said to live for hundreds of years it makes you think immortality which then sends my mind to vampires.  Now make no mistake I am not saying in any way shape or form that people in the bible were vampires.   Because I am not saying that at all.  It is just that since I was a kid I have always liked a good vampire story and immortality links to vampire in my mind. 

Again totally out of context of what the real understanding (which I did absorb) is from Genesis. 

It is just funny how a persons mind works.  Just don't think less of me.  lol

Your train of thought is exactly how the human mind works :o)

Yes, before the flood people lived for hundreds of years.
During that period there were 'giants' on the earth. These were people who were the offspring of the 200 fallen angels and the earthly daughters.
They were regarded as giants because of their size, their knowledge, etc. They taught the people sorcery, divination, astrology,etc.They brought much corruption to the earth.
Hence the flood.
What is important to note is that the Bible says, as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be near the time of the end.(just something to keep in mind as we are indeed in end times)
Book of Daniel also said in reference to the fourth and final kingdom of earth "And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
I mention this to reiterate the mixing of the seed of men with "fallen angels"/demonic spirits.

So your thought of vampire was not really astray.
They are just demonic entities questing for immortality.
Eternal life is only through Christ Jesus. It's a gift. All we need to do is say Thank you Jesus and accept what he so freely gives.

My prayer is for God to grant us wisdom and understanding as we read his word.
Many blessings,
