Anne Rice: Vampires to Jesus

“Hey Mom, this woman writes the greatest vampire novels of all time. People have made movies out of her novels. I love her vampire stories, but it turns out she now has given it all up to write about Jesus.”

I received the above email from one of my sons referring to Anne Rice. It is thrilling to hear that Anne Rice is now writing about and for Jesus and not vampires. My son knew that I would not be thrilled if it were “Anne Rice giving up Jesus and writing for vampires.”

I am thinking Anne has surely flipped with such a flip from Vampires to Jesus.

Vampire, a European folklore and Jesus Christ, God – both are suffering men- one (vampire) claiming to exist eternally and one (Jesus) who does exist Eternally. One (vampire) taking the life of others, while the other, (Jesus) giving life to others. Blood is the issue in both stories, while one (vampire) is said to take a human’s blood by force and drinking it while taking the human’s life. Jesus gave His own Blood freely and died on an old rugged cross so Anne and others could have life and have it Blissfully Eternally as well.

As we can well see one, (vampire) is fiction and the other One (Jesus) is real and He still lives and He is still giving Eternal Life just as He has for Anne Rice. Remember He will do the same for you!!!

Anne may have put us in fear of being bit by long pointed canine teeth and giving us sleepless nights after reading or seeing her thrillers. While it seems now that Anne has been smitten by the power of the Holy Spirit and leaves us to wonder how many sleepless nights The Spirit gave her.

We wish Anne well in her new business venture and Faith and pray that she does as much or more for Jesus as she has for vampires.

  1. How the folklore of Slavic origin got started, I don’t really know, but one thing rings clear..that..the life is in the BLOOD. That is a quote from the Old Testament and it is a Truth. Even mythologists and lorists of this ilk understand that truth. The Blood is of utmost import especially as stated in the New Testament. It says that the sacrifice of bulls & goats was NOT sufficient to atone for the wrongs perpetrated by mankind against his fellow man and against GOD. So a true sacrifice was made by the SON of GOD to avenge what the evil enemy had brought upon God’s creation. And only the BLOOD of the SON of GOD would suffice.
    In a reverse parallel, at the Communion Table we drink HIS “blood” and in it we have healing and deliverance i.e. NEW LIFE. I can see where Anne Rice could make that wonderful transition from tragic lore to triumphant Truth.

  2. I like your blood comparisons between Vampires and Jesus. It makes me realize Jesus blood that we speak and sing about is more than a poetic idea…it’s a powerful reality.

    1. Harry Potter is making it big on the Magical scene. But I think there’s someone who is a bigger drawing card, better than magic; it’s called Miracle! It’s the miracle that transforms a life from a low existence to a high existence; that instantly changes one’s location in the spirit; that supernaturally recreates a soul. NOW THAT”S MAGIC< Harry. Put that in your goblet of fire!!! The Blood of Jesus is in OUR Golden GOBLET!!!!

  3. JUST LIKE ANNE RICE’S BOOKS WHEN THE VAMPIRE BITEs A HUMAN … HE GOT A LARGE FOLLOWING BECAUSE THEY BECAME VAMPIRES. THEY ARE UNDEAD BUT NOT ALIVE.
    YET, JESUS SAID, WHEN WE EAT HIS BODY AND DRINK HIS BLOOD IN COMMUNION, WE BECOME A PART OF HIM AND ARE ALIVE. WE TOO ARE TO GO OUT AND GET A LARGE FOLLOWING FOR HIS KINGDOM. The word of God says “THOUGH YOU ARE DEAD, YET YOU SHALL LIVE AGAIN.” COl. 3:3 For as far as this world is concerned you have died and your life is hidden with Christ Jesus…AMP.

    2Tim 2:11: The saying is sure and worhty of confidence; If we have died with Him we shall also live with Him.

    SARA, YOUR CREATIVITY WRITINGS HAVE ONCE AGAIN MADE ME SEE AND UNDERSTAND TRUTH OF BEING FREE FROM BONDAGES AND LIVING IN CHRIST JESUS and AND FREE FROM BONDAGES.

    WE HOPE AND PRAY FOR YOU SARA, THE SAME AS FOR ANNE RICE THAT YOUR WRITINGS WILL BE PROSPEROUS TO YOU AND YOUR MINISTRY WHILE BRINGING GLORY TO GOD.

    1. Oh Thank you Dorothy for your Blessings to us. My heart yearns for others to know and love Jesus. He is so Wonderful. His Name is Wonderful. He gives Life. He gives fulness of life and joy. Oh that we should be a link to bringing this truth and joy and peace that all may know Him.

    2. The parallels are multitude between the MYSTICAL Blood of Jesus that transforms a human unto life and the MYTHICAL blood that vampires seek that transforms one unto death!…..(dead in trespasses and sins even while we are walking around…spiritually dead; morally and emotionally dead)! That BLOOD of Jesus is what gives everlasting life, if someone were to receive and accept His gift of salvation brought about by the shedding of His precious blood on the cross. Jesus said in the Scriptures that no greater love has any one person but that he that lay down his life for a friend. To make us FRIENDS and NOT victims (like the Vampire does), Jesus became that Victim and sacrificed His KINGLY/GODLY blood for our sins, problems, diseases and rendered us entered into the Kingdom of Glory….through the acceptance and belief in Him. In John 5:24 Jesus says…I say, the person whose ears are open to MY WORDS and who listens to MY MESSAGE and believes and trusts in and clings to ME and the Father, possesses ETERNAL LIFE. AND DOES NOT COME INTO JUDGMENT. That person has passed over OUT of death into LIFE!
      What are we waiting for? What a great GIFT!!!!! Eternal life through HIS blood sacrificed for us….as a SUBSTITUTE for all our mess ups and blatant sin. Thank You LORD JESUS for that unspeakable GIFT.
