The creature described in the Bible called Leviathan was most likely a Dragon. It was at one time the most fierce and feared animal on the planet. We can surmise that this creature actually lived and walked on the earth because it is in many folklore of many different cultures around the world.
No one in their right mind would ever consider trying to attack it, lay their hands upon it, or even disturb it. You would be in utter horror if you were face to face with it. Let alone a fearful mess if it was to come after you.
“Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook or press down his tongue with a cord? Can you put a rope in his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? Will he make many pleas to you? Will he speak to you soft words? Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant forever?
Will you play with him as with a bird, or will you put him on a leash for your girls? Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? Can you fill his skin with harpoons or his head with fishing spears?
Lay your hands on him; remember the battle—you will not do it again!” Job 41:1-8
So also, who is there that can be compared to the Almighty God? The Creator of the Universe. Who is there who would dare wrestle with Him? Who would dare rise up and think to be His match?
For man is weak, small, and feeble compared to Him. Yet, man is like the fool who grabs the tail of a ferocious dragon and says to it “heel” and expects it to obey.
God gives you commands, laws, and rules to live by for your good. That you may not sin against Him and be punished. But many are foolish and reprobate. They raise their tiny fists to Him and say, “No, I will not! I will do what I want”! To their demise.
Don’t be like them.
Even many in the church who say they follow Him, who worship Him, and praise Him with their lips do not listen and obey. But every day knowing His rules and commands, they defy Him, and go on sinning and doing as they wish.
They go from their place of worship with hearts filled with lust, greed, hatred, gossip, and slander to do as they please. Don’t be like them, but repent and turn to Jesus.
Like a fool listening to instructions and warnings to avoid the dragon, yet he goes out directly and grabs it by the whiskers.
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable.” Isaiah 40:28
I am the LORD, and there is no other, besides me there is no God; I equip you, though you do not know me, that people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the LORD, and there is no other. I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the LORD, who does all these things. Isaiah 45:5-7
Do you not know that the Lord sees everything you do, even what is in your mind, and upon your heart. You don’t even have control over your next breath, but He has control over all things.
Come to the Lord with a humble and repentant heart, realize your position before Him. You are just a sinner, a criminal who has broken His Laws. If you do not repent you will one day stand under His judgment and be utterly destroyed. Turn from your sinful ways.
He is calling you to repentance, to turn away from your life of sin. To follow and obey Jesus who died for you. God will not tolerate the prideful and arrogant heart.
You would not lay hold of the tail of a dragon and command it, like a fool, would you? Why would you think you will be able to tell God what to do? Humble yourself taking a position with God against yourself, agreeing with Him that you have sinned. Look at yourself with honesty and truth. You are wrong and God is right.
He is waiting for you to come to Jesus Christ and repent. He will forgive. He will have mercy on those who seek Him with all their heart. Do this before it is too late. Before your own foolishness gets the best of you.
Behold, the hope of a man is false; he is laid low even at the sight of him. No one is so fierce that he dares to stir him(Leviathan) up. Who then is he who can stand before Me(God)? Who has first given to Me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is Mine. Job 41:9-11
