I want to briefly share with you some truths about the LEVIATHAN SPIRIT
In that day the Lord will take his terrible, swift sword and punish Leviathan, the swiftly moving serpent, the coiling, writhing serpent. He will kill the dragon of the sea.
Isaiah 27:1 NLT
Though there’s so much about the dark kingdom the Bible didn’t disclose but we are able to understand certain things by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. Leviathan is also known as the Sea Dragon, this demonic being is one of the strongest principalities serving under Satan. You need to note that Satan is not the only one who was cast out of heaven, there were very strong and terrible beings that were cast down with him, and leviathan was one of them
Revelation 12: 12. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. *Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!* for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
According to other passages of the Scripture where leviathan is mentioned, you will see that he was described to be a very strong creature that seems to be indestructible except that Isaiah 27 verse one says that the Lord shall destroy leviathan.
Therefore, leviathan has been used to describe a power that appears to be too difficult to overcome such that those who tried to defeat it either died or almost died trying to do that
Now, Who is Leviathan today?, What is his mission?, Why do you need to know about him?, and How do you defeat him?.
Leviathan is a prince of darkness that is known to have slain giants and great warriors, and because of his pride and strength, he doesn’t attack weak people, he goes after strong and powerful people, he’s a demon that can withstand the hottest fire and strongest anointing, meaning that, no matter how anointed you are in the Holy Ghost, this demon can attack you, and even possess you and then destroy you if you are not wise enough
The Leviathan spirit knows how to bring down believers who appear to be strong and victorious against the dark kingdom, he knows how to merge himself with a weak point in the life of a believer and he will stay there and survive for years despite the level of Holy Ghost Fire burning in the life of such believer, and he will wait there for the proper time to strike such believer
You can fast for 100 days and pray different kinds of powerful deliverance prayers but this spirit will still not go. This is because it binds itself to that part of you that you have refused to crucify, it merged itself with what you love and cherish so much, what you hold so dear to your heart, your ego, your pride, your lust, your addiction, your ambition, yes, that part of your flesh that you do not want to kill
And the only effective weapon against leviathan spirit is complete holiness and Purity, this is how to crush the head of this dragon. Isaiah called it “a coiling spirit”, meaning that it can hide in just a single cell of your body, it can shrink itself to sink deep down into your soul and spirit, therefore, the Holy Spirit must also go deep down into “all that you are” to deliver you from this captivity. And the only thing that can make the Lord go down so deep into your very essence and foundation is a lifestyle of Purity, you must be so broken, humble, selfless and dead in your flesh to enable the Lord search deep into you to free you
What I have just said above might sound so easy but it’s not actually easy, it is easier said than done. Another name I call leviathan spirit is “the demon of holy people”, this is the only demon that Christians feel comfortable with and the only demon that Christians don’t want to let go, this is a demon that is being fed by inward sins such as Pride, Anger, lust, envy, hatred, bitterness, jealousy etc. Therefore, you’ve got a lot to lose to defeat this demon
Also, this sea dragon can easily merge itself with your spiritual gifts and prophetic gifts and anointing such that it can influence your spiritual gifts and anointing negatively. It can make you hear a voice that sounds so familiar to the voice of the Lord but it’s not the Lord’s voice, it can make you prophesy when the Lord didn’t say anything and even give you visions and dreams that has nothing to do with the Lord.
The Lord took me through deep darkness for some years and I can tell you that a man of God can be so heavily anointed and can have great fame and millions of followers and this same man is already taken over by leviathan spirit and if God will not help him, he might not make heaven.
I have seen just a little anger gave a preacher an incurable disease and he died of that disease
Lastly for now, it is important that we check ourselves as frequently as possible to see if we are still in right standing with the Lord, especially, we need to focus on where “things are formed”, I’m talking about the realm of your thoughts, emotions and feelings because this realm determines your actions, if you can be pure in this realm, you will stand a great chance of defeating this dragon.
Also, we need to get so deep into the Lord, and walk with the Lord with a sincere, honest and open heart, create a room for rebuke and correction in your relationship with God (Ask the Lord to reveal to you where you have gone wrong). There are certain things the Lord can never tell you because you lack the depths of humility and Purity that can take you into the depths of God to hear them
1 Corinthians 10: 12. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
Psalm 139: 23. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24. And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Teaching continues…The Lord bless you. Amen.
