Our war with the serpent began when we (humankind) ignorantly made the enemy of Yahveh our friend. When did our friendship with the serpent start? It began a very long time ago. It was way back in the Garden of Eden. Our first mother, Eve, became a friend of the serpent in the Garden of Eden through constant conversation with the serpent. And since the serpent is known to have the most powerful flattery tongue among all the creatures of Yahveh, he succeeded in luring Eve to trust him. So the serpent use to come to Eve as often as he wishes especially at times when he knew that Ava Yahveh won’t be visiting them (Adam and Eve). When the serpent realized that Eve’s trust and love have grown to no end, he decided to execute the secret plan he has kept from Eve all this while. The serpent was also known to be a very wise and cunning animal. The Bible says, “Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the Lord God had made” (Genesis 3:1a GNT). Another Scripture says, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16). The serpent knew that among the two human beings Ava Yahveh created, the woman was the weaker vessel and also knew that if he succeeds in deceiving the woman; he could also get the man to his side through the woman. The Bible says, “Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered” (1 Peter 3:7). The serpent’s aim is to destroy the relationship between humankind and their creator Yahveh. He wants to win humankind to his side as he has already won so many angels in heaven to his side in order to have more rebellions in his army to rebel against Yahveh and win the war against Yahveh, so as to accomplish his plan of becoming the Most High God and King of both Heaven and Earth.
So the serpent asked Eve a thought-provoking question, “Has God said, you shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Eve answered, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, we shall not eat of it, neither shall we touch it, lest we die”. The serpent lied to the woman by saying, “you shall not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat the fruit your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:1-5).
So the serpent succeeded in enticing Eve with his flattery tongue. And since Eve trusts his newfound friend, she plucked the forbidden fruit and ate it and through the eating of this forbidden fruit, the serpent conquered Eve and possessed Eve to deceive her husband (Adam) and Adam also took the forbidden fruit from the wife (Eve) and ate it too. As a result, they became slaves to the serpent. Now their mutual relationship with Yahveh has been broken. The Bible says, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? (Genesis 3:6-11).
So since humankind was not satisfied with the friendship and relationship they had with their created and became friends with Yahveh’s one and only enemy the serpent, it pained Yahveh so much and created hatred and war between us and the serpent. Yahveh said, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Genesis 3:15).
The serpent cannot be a friend to a true and righteous believer. He has become our enemy and we have also become his enemy. So for those who are still committing sin and evil acts are still friends of the serpent. And in becoming friends of the serpent they shall surely share in the punishments and ill-treatments Ava Yahveh has prepared and kept in store for the serpent. The Bible says, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41).
The enmity is between the woman and the serpent. According to the Spirit of Prophecy, the woman in this context represents the true believers (assembly) that keep the Laws of Yahveh and has faith in Yahshua the Messiah. The Apostle Paul said to the true assembly in Corinth, “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ [the Messiah]” (2 Corinthians 11:2). Paul again used a woman to represent the assembly in Ephesus. He said, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ [the Messiah] and the church [appropriate word: assembly]” (Ephesians 5:31, 32). The seed or the descendant of the woman (assembly) is you and I that want to live or are living a righteous life for eternal life. Remember that the enmity is between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent.
The serpent or dragon or leviathan is Satan and the seed of Satan are demons, evil spirits, principalities, incubus, succubus, marine spirits, workers of darkness, perverse spirits, sorcerers, witches, wizards, fortune tellers, familiar spirits, enchanters, fallen angels, false religions and evildoers. The Bible says, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ [Yahshua the Messiah]” (Revelation 12: 9, 17).
Who is Leviathan?
Note, this subject has been discussed in my book titled, “The Origin and Fall of Satan”.
Leviathan is a legendary monster, which was the symbol of the forces of chaos and evil. Leviathan is the animal form of Lucifer or Satan.
Satan has many forms of changeling. He is known to be a dragon, serpent, and Leviathan. He is very powerful and very hard to defeat unless you use the right weapons and have a higher power (Yahshua) in you.
The Power of the Leviathan
No one knows the Leviathan than its maker and designer. Ava Yahveh is the creator of heaven and earth and everything within them. Therefore, it is only Yahveh who can reveal to us the power of the Leviathan he created. Yahveh spoke to the righteous man Job and in Yahveh’s answer to Job revealed to Job how he created the Leviathan and the great power and strength he gave to him.
“Can you catch Leviathan with a fish-hook or tie his tongue down with a rope? Can you put a rope through his snout or put a hook through his jaw? Will he beg you to let him go? Will he plead with you for mercy? Will he make an agreement with you and promise to serve you forever? Will you tie him up like a pet bird, like something to amuse your servant women? Will fishermen bargain over him? Will merchants cut him up to sell? Can you fill his hide with fishing spears or pierce his head with a harpoon? Touch him once and you’ll never try it again; you’ll never forget the fight! Anyone who sees Leviathan loses courage and falls to the ground. When he is aroused, he is fierce; no one would dare to stand before him. Who can attack him and still be safe? No one in all the world can do it. Let me tell you about Leviathan’s legs and describe how great and strong he is. No one can tear off his outer coat or pierce the armour he wears. Who can make him open his jaws, ringed with those terrifying teeth? His back is made of rows of shields, fastened together and hard as stone. Each one is joined so tight to the next, not even a breath can come between. They all are fastened so firmly together that nothing can ever pull them apart. Light flashes when he sneezes and his eyes glow like the rising sun. Flames blaze from his mouth and streams of sparks fly out. Smoke comes pouring out of his nose, like smoke from weeds burning under a pot. His breath starts fires burning; flames leap out of his mouth. He neck is so powerful that all who meet him are terrified there is not a weak spot in his skin; it is as hard and unyielding as iron. His stony hart is without fear, as unyielding and hard as a millstone. When he rises up, even the strongest are frightened; they are helpless with fear. There is no sword that can wound him; no spear or arrow or lance that can harm him. For him, iron is as flimsy as straw, and bronze as soft as rotten wood. There is no arrow that can make him run; rocks thrown at him are like bits of straw. To him, a club is a piece of straw, and he laughs when men throw spears. The scales on his belly are like jagged pieces of pottery; they tear up the muddy ground like a threshing-sledge. He churns up the sea like boiling water and makes it bubble like a pot of oil. He leaves shining path behind him and turns the sea to white foam. There is nothing on earth to compare with him; he is a creature that has no fear. He looks down on even the proudest animals; he is king of all wild beasts” (Job 41:1-34 GNT).
The Leviathan is really great, strong, and powerful. Look, Yahveh has used a whole chapter to describe the strength and power of the Leviathan he created.
Beloved, even though the Leviathan who we know to be Satan is very powerful, we shouldn’t forget that the Leviathan did not create himself and moreover, the power it has was given to him by the highest power (Yahveh). Know that only Yahveh who was the designer and creator of the great leviathan knows the weakness of the Leviathan and the weapons that can destroy it. Again, know that no one will ever create anything that will be more powerful than the creator himself. Therefore, Almighty Yahveh didn’t create the Leviathan to be more powerful than himself. Therefore Satan known as the great Leviathan has no power to stand against the weapons that Yahveh has created for his destruction. If you hold on to the weapons, beloved, you will overcome the great Leviathan. Remember that Yahveh lives in you and you in him. There is nothing to fear you have Yahveh on your side fighting for you. Take courage, and approach the great Leviathan with the tactics, the strategies, the powers, and the weapons Ava Yahveh has given to us, and destroy Satan the great Leviathan from your life. You will achieve total peace and freedom as long as you keep fighting and winning the good fight.
