Leviathan

Leviathan is a biblical dinosaur that is described in great detail in Job 41, of which the whole chapter is dedicated to Leviathan. Leviathan is associated with Behemoth (described in the previous chapter of Job 40), who is another biblical dinosaur. The sea predator in question is far too powerful to be dismissed or minimized as a "crocodile" or "hippopotamus," despite the protests of gnostics and counterfeits who want to minimize the glory of God's creation (meanwhile, defending evolution) and the revelations shown to us in His Word.

Leviathan is possibly identified as mososaur or kronosaur. A better possibility is that it is something else that we haven't discovered yet. If you strongly doubt the feasibility of a biophysical-based fire breathing ancient dragon, then indulge me for a brief thought experiment.

The modern bombardier beetle shows us a model for what such a biologically based combustion system might look like [1]. We are talking about written testimony that is at least 3,000 years old and miraculously preserved. Are you sure that some 3 thousand years ago "it's impossible?" (per Luke Skywalker in Episode V).

A mososaur could have had such organs in it's guts or ribcage. We can't prove that it did not, because all we have are the bones. Dinosaur bones were being dug up for the first time starting around the early 1800s. The word dinosaur was coined/invented in 1841. The KJV translation for ancient Hebrew "tanniyn" (terrible lizard) was given as "dragon." That seems like a perfectly reasonable synonym/word choice to me, given that the KJV old English preceded the invention of the word dinosaur by over 200 years.

That leads into another funny insight. It is one thing to hold up the slogan of common sense. It is quite another to actually practice common sense. Isn't any kind of bio matter not supposed to survive for more than a few thousand years? So how is it that we are recovering fully intact skeletons tanniyn/dragons/dinosaurs, and blood entombed in amber? You remember the scene in Episode V where Han Solo is frozen in carbonite? Yea, I am pretty sure that wouldn't work and he would just be dead Han. In-world that's even the reason that Vader and crew cited for why they tested it on Han first not Luke. How on earth is any kind of soft tissue supposed to survive for over 100 millions years? Wouldn't it just degrade anyway despite being entombed in amber? This whole issue of dinosaur blood and soft tissue is an excellent little piece of argumentation and evidence that we could build much more case on [2].

The Leviathan is also a political motif based on the writings of Thomas Hobbes. In this context, the leviathan is a symbol for an overpowered government, which Hobbes regarded as a force for good. To modernize this motif further, "leviathan" can also be synonymous with the "war machine" concept of strong nations bulldozing smaller nations.

Leviathan or mososaur was recently featured in the 2015 film Jurassic World, which contains a stiff dose of carefully constructed evolutionary propaganda that pushes the tenets of faith and tropes that are essential to evolution belief. Evolution is an example of science falsely so called per 1 Timothy 6:20. Evolutionary propaganda is also heavily featured in the upcoming X-Men film, which will also push a gnostic heresy (misotheism is defined as hatred for God) [3].


Key Scriptures

Job 41:1-21

1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?

2 Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?

3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?

4 Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?

5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

8 Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?

10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?

11 Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

12 I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.

13 Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?

14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.

15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.

16 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.

17 They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.

18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.

20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.

21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.


Isaiah 27:1

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.
