A few years back when I was getting "serious" with my Bible reading I came to realise that the mystical Dragon is REAL. Yes, as in real LITERALLY.
What is my authority? Job 41.
Job 41 describes a beast called Leviathan. And below are some of its descriptions from the Bible:
14 Who can open the doors of his face?
Around his teeth is terror.
15 His back is made of rows of shields,
shut up closely as with a seal.
16 One is so near to another
that no air can come between them.
17 They are joined one to another;
they clasp each other and cannot be separated.
18 His sneezings flash forth light,
and his eyes are like the eyelids of the dawn.
19 Out of his mouth go flaming torches;
sparks of fire leap forth.
20 Out of his nostrils comes forth smoke,
as from a boiling pot and burning rushes.
21 His breath kindles coals,
and a flame comes forth from his mouth.
There are more descriptions. Go and read Job 41.
But why was God telling Job about this TERRIFYING BEAST that He had created?
9 Behold, the hope of a man is false;
he is laid low even at the sight of him [Leviathan].
10 No one is so fierce that he dares to stir him up.
Who then is he who can stand before me?
11 Who has first given to me, that I should repay him?
Whatever is under the whole heaven is mine.
Well, I guess partly to SHOW FORTH the AWESOMENESS of our CREATOR.
As the Chinese around the world celebrates the Year of the Dragon this year, may fresh revelations of the awesomeness of our Jehovah God so fill your hearts and minds.
A day WILL come when all the creations will come and BOW before Him.
Happy New Year!
