Isaiah 27:1 (KJV) That Old Dragon

Isaiah 27:1 (KJV)
In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
Scientists tell us that hundreds of species of life go extinct every day.
  • Plants, 
  • Bugs, 
  • Fish and 
  • Animals; 
something is endangered of extinction or has already gone into extinction. Sometimes we hear reports that a species thought to be extinct has been discovered alive.
It t is for this reason I have no problem believing that animals spoken of in the Bible but not in existence today were real. Leviathan was neither mythical nor merely symbolic. This is an animal that most certainly existed.
This in no way means God’s Word must not use Leviathan in a symbolic way. Indeed, it seems sensible to use those things that are most literal as symbolic instruments. Leviathan, an actual animal now extinct, is here used to picture Satan and likely those nations under him.
Leviathan is a serpentSatan is styled as a serpent because it was in the form of a serpent that he deceived Eve.
Leviathan is a piercing serpentHe is dangerous to the core. He is able to appear as an angel of light but he is not light. He is a killer, a destroyer of men.
Leviathan is a crooked serpentHe is twisted and bent. Lucifer was meant to be something other than what he became. Men who follow him are also bent, crooked and broken. They are not what God would that we are.
Leviathan is in the seaVery often the sea is a type for the masses of people. Satan moves and works among the masses. He is present, active and powerful. He is empowered by the masses and the masses follow him, not the Lord.
Leviathan is destroyed by the LordHe is no match for God. Though the majority opposes God, God alone is a majority. God’s power is His own and not that of the collective.
I put my trust in God.
