TBased upon the Scripture: In that day, the LORD will punish with his sword-- his fierce, great and powerful sword-- Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; He will slay the monster of the sea. Isaiah 27:1
The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. Rev. 12:9
As J.R.R. Tolkien said, “Never laugh at live dragons”, and “It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” (The Hobbit)
We have a powerful and active enemy who hates us and seeks to devour us. He is described as being beautiful. This depiction of the Leviathan/Dragon shows that beauty in the form and color of the beast rising out of the primal sea, but it also depicts his ultimate destiny. The cross impales his heart and gives him a mortal wound. Those in Christ have a defeated enemy.
