HEADLINE: "In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan the crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is the sea," Isaiah 27:1.
Again I want to remind you that your Father, the JUDGE is at war only with the powers of darkness. He is the last day (Omega). And the end of the Judgment will be termination of all invisible enemies in the lake of fire. At this time the war with devils concerning the captivity of mankind is indeed in its closing phase. Angelic forces under Michael have "stood up" on behalf of mankind, Isaiah; Daniel 12:1 40:24-26. The blind and "spiritually dead" in the church-world are so busy fighting each other and human beings whom they classify as "sinners", that they are ignorant of the spiritual drama the Father is undertaking on behalf of ALL humanity, who are all "Family" members, Matthew 23:9; Ephesians 3:14-15. But God, Heaven, and I are not wrestling with flesh and blood, Ephesians 6:12. We are not manipulated to such errors by "Leviathan." ONE MAN ONLY is under orders from the JUDGE to tear the kingdom of devils to pieces IN THE END, Jeremiah 50:44-46. Devils thought it was Jesus in his day, and they inquired, "Are you here to torment us before the time?" Matthew 8:29. But Jesus came as a "grand jury Justice" and as God's "faithful" Witness to free the minds of many from demonic captivity along with his other purposes, Luke 4:17-18. Since it was through man that mankind was brought down by the serpent in the "Garden", by man also must "Leviathan, the crooked serpent" be punished. With the JUDGE, it is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and stroke for stroke against the true enemies only. THIS is the "TIME" those devils who spoke to Jesus were afraid of, and this is "the day" mentioned in the prophecy of our headline text.
There are a number of theories written which attempt to identify "leviathan". Since this is the TIME when the "mystery of iniquity is being revealed, let us review the texts which show this to be another reference for Satan. In addition to our title text, there is Revelation 12:9 where "the dragon" is referred to as "the old serpent, called the devil and Satan." God is at war with the powers of darkness, not with human beings, or whales, or any other visible flesh. So you can forget any theories identifying "leviathan" as anything other than another alias for Satan. "The Wicked" is being revealed NOW by ALL of his names, II Thessalonians 2:3,8. Our headline text says that leviathan is "the DRAGON that is in the sea." In Revelation 17, Babylon is observed riding the BEAST who is in the sea, and the sea is identified as all humanity, Revelation 17:1-6,15. This "beast" is the same "dragon" Daniel saw in chapters 7-8. Theologians rushing ahead of GOD and the END TIME, who were so inclined to wrestling flesh and blood, have missed the real enemy by attempting to associate the "dragon" with some human nation. China's symbol is the dragon, but God is not at war with the Chinese people. In Daniel's vision the "dragon" was observed "mastering" the churches and all the saints, and stomping on and breaking up God's grounded stars, namely mankind, Daniel 7:7-8,19-22, and 8:8-14. In Daniel 8, the "HE-GOAT" is the same as "THE DRAGON". It is Satan, "the scapegoat" of God's true atonement in the Heavenly Priesthood work. On his head rest all the sins of all humanity for all times. THE JUDGE PLACED THEM THERE.... and THEY CANNOT COME OFF HIM no matter how much "out of tune" preachers on earth might try to ascribe them to mankind, II Corinthians 5:18-19. Jesus came to us as the SIGN of atonement about 2000 years ago, or two days ago in spiritual time. But true atonement took place in the beginning when the JUDGE had Satan and his household kicked out of heaven. It was this very act that made Satan the scapegoat, Leviticus 16:20-22, when he fell to the "bottomless pit"...."a land not inhabited, a wilderness" according to the pattern. "There is nothing new under the sun" as Solomon wrote. And Satan as the "scapegoat" for the sins of all humanity and Jesus as the "goat of the Lord's lot" is not spiritually "new" information. In the beginning Enoch wrote these things. See Enoch 10:9,18-22, 68:4,5. You must disregard all theological slanders and surmisings concerning Enoch's work. God did not send those theologians. But I know who I AM. You can get Enoch's work in the most complete form in The Apocrypha and Pseudipigrapha of the Old Testament vol. 2, by R. H. Charles.
Since we are "revealing" the man of sin again, let us look at God's statements in Job regarding "leviathan" to get a handle on his god-given powers to see how he got access to the churches and took over their doctrines. Job chapter 41 introduces "leviathan". The "Master" of languages likes to add clues to words regarding their meaning. Since LEVIATHAN is Satan, consider this: HATAN-LEVI, or hating Levi or hating God's priests as in the Levitical priesthood. LEVI, the priest, must undo or reverse EVIL. It became WAR, LEVI vs EVIL. Therefore, LEVIATHAN became a VILE VEIL covering the eyes of the churches, stomping God's stars, and breaking them up....(1) UNTIL JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN TO THE SAINTS (which is now} and, (2)UNTIL THE SAINTS POSSESSED THE KINGDOM Daniel 7:22. So most men have remained mental captives in false doctrine until the day they died, Job 41:12-13; God asks, "who can discover Satan's face", because He shut our eyes so we could not see the kinkdom of darkness. All devils are invisible to us. Devils have faked men out with visions making them think they were seeing devils as big as men, or bigger, but devils are as we have described them, little bastards, GI -"ANTS". about six inches tall; all of them naked and passing through solid matter as if it was a mirage on a desert, Job 41:14. We cannot see their faces and their teeth (the s-words of deception and guile that they speak) are terrible weapons, Job 41:15. Devils are very proud of their unbalanced deceptive words which cause bad logic in and among us. Job 41:18-21. This is where his power to deceive churches is made known. Light symbolizes wisdom and understanding. By pretending to be God, Jesus, or angels from heaven devils are able to convince religious men that they are receiving light and instructions from above, Revelation 13:4-7; II Corinthians 11:13-15. Those deceived in this manner are powerless pawns who cannot open their eyes to fight it. Many have heard "voices", seen visions, received dreams, "felt" unctions in their bodies, and the "hands" laid on them were from devils on their own bodies or someone else's body. Therefore Aaron's two sons had to die to teach us that "strange fire" (from Leviathan) must not be offered to God, Numbers 10:1-3. Only the WORDS (FIRE) from the true Holy Spirit must be offered back to God as our "light". TWO DOCTRINES STAND OUT like two sore thumbs WHICH IDENTIFY THOSE WITH STRANGE FIRE: (1) the "doctrine of death and condemnation of mankind" which is dung Jesus flushed down the toilet by his crucifixion,II Corinthians 3:7-12 and (2) a judgment doctrine which damns most of mankind in hell fire with Satan, Luke 9:51-56. A third category identifying Satan's "hirelings" is money-grubbing "running greedily after the error of Balaam for reward," . How many of you can recall Jesus taking up a collection? God does not need one dime from anyone to save the whole world. Leviathan's "hirelings" have used money to spread "dung" through the airwaves to make men, as Jesus put it, "two fold more the child of hell than themselves," Matthew 23:15. That "crap" that we all were taught is what churches call "the gospel". God calls that eating bread made with "dung", Ezekiel 4:12-13. But"strangers" (devils) have been our teachers "having men's persons in admiration for advantage", Isaiah 61:5; Jude 16....And we praised God while they pronounced damnation on most of our brothers and sisters who are under more severe forms of demonic oppression. Balaam cursed men for money and most preachers are putting most men hell fire in their doctrines... for money. They make a living that way.
In Job 42:23 we learn that devils have their own form of invisible "flesh" even though they are spiritual robots. So when you read something like "I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh and they shall be drunken with their own blood" (Isaiah 49:26), do not assume that God is referring to human beings. Just as eating Jesus' flesh and blood means taking in his WORD, even so devils will take in Satan's words or eat their own flesh and blood in a "strong delusion to believe a lie" that they all might be damned, II Thessalonians 2:11-12; Revelation 13:2-4. Because Satan was originally made of precious metals and jewels which is the dust of heaven, Job 41:24 is no pun. Satan is described as "hard-hearted". In verse 25, because of his deceptions and control of men, men are overcome and they must "purify themselves." Job 41:26-29 is written that way because devils pass right through solid matter, and the weapons of human warfare cannot hurt them. One cannot hit what one cannot see in man's realm. Only the WORD of GOD can hit "leviathan's" wounded head where it hurts him most. In Job 41:30 "sharp stones under him" refers to the fact that devils reside on the bodies of God's writers hoping to deflect, muddy, or stop the waters from on high from flowing in the writer's ears. Because LEVI carried the WORD as a "lively stone" (I Peter 2:5), he became a sharp stone to devils on him. Other men under devil's feet are broken clay vessels or trampled "stars". It is the WORD that LEVI carries which is sharper than a two-edge sword, Hebrews 4:12. God's human priest is the main enemy leviathan attempts to stop. So guess where Satan, Babylon, and the worst of the first- fallen devils are!? This "priest" draws them to COURT where God can speak to them through him...."face-to-face". On that "throne" (on the priest) the JUDGE is able to fulfill II and II Esdras chapters 11-13. "Mire" is the clay our bodies are made of. "Briars and thorns" (devils, II Samuel 23:6-7) are the sharp things he puts on men, Matthew 12:43-45. In Job 41:31-32 it is revealed that devils have men thinking that man is "wise" possessing "understanding". Job 41:33-34 tells us that Satan is the king of all HIS CHILDREN. All devils are "proud" like he is. Therefore a family of demonic "roaring lions" is called a PRIDE, I Peter 5:8.
Since God is really JUDGMENT DAY or Omega, our HEADLINE says He will "punish leviathan (Satan) with his sore and great and strong SWORD." We know that the WORD is God's sword. But the sword of God in the END is more than WORDS. At this time Satan is to be ATTACKED by ONE MAN Jeremiah 50:44-46. Since Satan defiled human flesh BY attacking Adam, the "BLOOD" of one man is ordained as a sword to "pursue and attack" him and his invisible household, Ezekiel 35:3-11. Jeremiah 51:20-24. As God's priest on earth, he became a mag- NET drawing them to COURT, Ezekiel 32:2-10. This priest is God's SWORD OF FLESH that "HE BRANDISHES before them and they shall tremble at every moment, every man (of sin or demon) for his own life in the day of thy fall." Ezekiel 32:10 (Pharaoh is also a reference for Satan since he was controlling him).
Once drawn to COURT, the JUDGE very easily fulfills the rest of our HEADLINE text. "He slays the dragon that is in the sea". All He does is speak a "sentence" to SENTENCE THEM. Here, through the "GOOD NEWS" devils learned that only their kingdom can be judged John 16:8,11. They have discovered that the JUDGE JUSTIFIES MANKIND, Romans 5:15-21. They learned that Jesus and the COURT place all the sins of every generation of humanity on the heads of their father Satan, their mother Babylon and each of them, Enoch 68:4.5, 10:9. God showed them how their self-deception and refusal to hear the undefiled WORD of God helped them speed their time of demise by killing men and forcing acts of fornication upon mankind. The WORD given here is effective and in force against demons everywhere whether they are aware or not that COURT is in session. The WORD here is all inclusive, and to so many devils HE HAS COME LIKE A THIEF in the night to the anguish of those who have to face His wrath. This is the latest "GOOD NEWS" in the spiritual war in progress. So the JUDGMENT OF GOD is just and kind to all mankind. We need to fear nothing. False doctrines are now useless, broken weapons.
God has chosen one man to draw devils to COURT. This man is a SWORD of flesh and BLOOD through whom God speaks with devils face to face. Because this man is a "priest of heaven" the fiercest and the worst of devils are attracted to his body in an attempt to prevent the final COURT REPORTS from being written. The body of this priest serves not only as the "bench" on which the JUDGE'S THRONE rests ... but also as a SEAT for devils during Court session. Prophecies in Jeremiah 50:44-46; II Esdras 11-13 and II tell the final story. This man must "pursue and destroy" the kingdom of darkness as a SWORD of flesh and BLOOD, Ezekiel 35:3-11, and Jeremiah 51:20-24. He is also the NET God uses to draw them into COURT, Ezekiel 32:2-10. Using this man as a microphone and amplifier the Father chides, rebukes. judges, mocks, and condemns Satan and his whole invisible house. Thus He has fulfilled our title text TODAY: "The Lord with His sore and great strong SWORD (both His WORDS and PRIEST OF FLESH and BLOOD) shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan the crooked serpent; and he shall slay (with WORDS) the dragon that is in the sea". This is the "GOOD NEWS" the Spirit has for the churches. Some faint hearted ones may not like reading about devils, but I can tell all you babies out there, "This is WAR"!! Devils are being crucified on God's "brazen" rod (shepherd). All heaven sees this drama. All YOU have to do is "look and live"! Fiery flying serpents (demons) can forget it! Deception is a failed weapon.
