24 But about three months later Judah was told, Tamar your daughter-in-law has played the harlot, and also she is with child by her lewdness. And Judah said, Bring her forth and let her be burned!
25 When she was brought forth, she [took the things he had given her in pledge and] sent [them] to her father-in-law, saying, I am with child by the man to whom these articles belong. Then she added, Make out clearly, I pray you, to whom these belong, the signet [seal], [signet] cord, and staff.
26 And Judah acknowledged them and said, She has been more righteous and just than I, because I did not give her to Shelah my son. And he did not cohabit with her again.
27 Now when the time came for her to be delivered, behold, there were twins in her womb.
28 And when she was in labor, one baby put out his hand; and the midwife took his hand and bound upon it a scarlet thread, saying, This baby was born first.
29 But he drew back his hand, and behold, his brother was born first. And she said, What a breaking forth you have made for yourself! Therefore his name was called Perez [breaking forth].
30 And afterward his brother who had the scarlet thread on his hand was born and was named Zerah [scarlet].

Thy Deliverance Draws Nigh; Psalm 69!
By Robin Kirby-Gatto
I want to preface this teaching with the fact that God’s scripture is taken literally so in Psalm 69 we see the literal context even when it depicts Messiah on the cross. Not only is there a literal context but there is a deeper meaning that God has shown me through His Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding by His Holy Spirit that reveals the truth of the soul being delivered. Jesus states clearly to him who has knowledge more will be given. (Mark 4)
21 And He said to them, Is the lamp brought in to be put under a peck measure or under a bed, and not [to be put] on the lampstand? 22 [THINGS ARE HIDDEN TEMPORARILY ONLY AS A MEANS TO REVELATION.] FOR THERE IS NOTHING HIDDEN EXCEPT TO BE REVEALED, NOR IS ANYTHING [TEMPORARILY] KEPT SECRET EXCEPT IN ORDER THAT IT MAY BE MADE KNOWN. 23 If any man has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him perceive and comprehend. 24 And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear. 25 For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away [by force]. Mark 4:21-25 Amp
Therefore, in this study of “Thy Deliverance Draws Nigh; Psalm 69” know that God is revealing the deliverance of the Soul of Man and in the revealing you see greater revelation through the ancient Hebrew of this Chapter. The commentary I have at the end of each day “The Tongue of God, the Baptism of Fire, the Word Yeshua” is the revealing of the ancient Hebrew with the scripture according to the Words in scripture God has me study on. That commentary simply takes the Hebrew letters and causes us to look through the lenses of the ancient Hebrew and its meaning. With that said let us move forward to get a greater understanding of scripture. I use both the Amplified and KJV because the Amplified is my preference in bible translation and the Strong’s Concordance from which I look up the Word is based on the King James Version.
20 Insults and reproach have broken my heart; I am full of heaviness and I am distressingly sick. I looked for pity, but there was none, and for comforters, but I found none. 21 They gave me also gall [poisonous and bitter] for my food, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar (a soured wine) to drink. 22 Let their own table [with all its abundance and luxury] become a snare to them; and when they are secure in peace [or at their sacrificial feasts, let it become] a trap to them. Psalm 69:20-22 Amp.
We left the last teaching, Day 8 looking at David magnifying the Lord God at the deliverance that draws nigh unto him from all his enemies. As we looked at the ancient language going through the Hebrew letters the depiction of word pictures through the ancient language revealed the Chaos of David’s soul caused by the tongue of the enemy. However, David was able to distinguish this fact and as a result DRAW NIGH UNTO GOD!
20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none. Psalm 69:20 KJV
Reproach (SC # 2781) in Hebrew is cherpah kher-paw’ meaning to reproach, disgrace, rebuke and shame. The Hebrew letters in reproach are Chet, Resh, Pey and Hey indicating that which would separate you from the Word of the Most High being revealed. David acknowledges here as he did in the last verse from the last note that the enemy has been trying to separate him from seeing the Word of the Most High Revealed, from being King of Israel!
Broken (SC # 7665) in Hebrew is shabara shaw-bar’ meaning to burst, break down, break off, in pieces, broken hearted, crush, destroy, hurt, tear, etc. The Hebrew letters for the word broken here are Sheen, Bet and Resh forming he word picture to destroy the house of his person. Remember we are the house/temple of Holy Spirit and the enemy through his lies wants to destroy that house which is within us. However, God will deliver us from the destroying works of the devil! God is mighty to Save!
Heart (SC # 3820) in Hebrew is leb labe and means heart, the feelings, the will and even intellect, courageous, etc. The Hebrew letters for heart here are Lamed and Bet forming the word picture of that which controls the house; whatever tongue is speaking to your house (you) controls you! When God delivers you, He does so FULLY!!! Therefore, if you are still having a struggle although you might not be committing the behaviors it is still indicative that we are not delivered! When God delivers you fully you love what He loves and hate what He hates! Therefore, if you are still have a struggle that indicates what is going on in the heart of man, what tongue is controlling your heart!
Heaviness (SC # 5136) in Hebrew is nuwsh nosh meaning to be sick, distressed and heaviness. The Hebrew letters for the word heaviness are Nun, Vav and Sheen indicating the activities that are added to destroy. Do you see this; it is referring still to the works of the devil that are at operation against our soul.
Looked (SC # 6960) in Hebrew is qavah kaw-vaw’ and means to bind together by twining, to collect, to expect, wait upon, terry, etc. The Hebrew letters here for Looked are Qoof, Vav and Hey forming the word picture becoming the least, low in order that the Nail, Yeshua would be added and revealed unto me.
Pity (SC # 5110) nuwd nood meaning to wander, flee, disappear, take pity, be sorry, etc. The Hebrew letters her for pity are Nun, Vav and Dalet forming the word picture of life to be added unto you and for you to enter. Do you see that David was simply looking for the Door of Life but he had been waiting for it to be opened by man and not God, so he missed the door! It took David getting to the bottom of everything, to the end of himself for him to see that Only God opens the door to life.
None (SC # 369) in Hebrew is ayin ah’-yin meaning to be nothing or not exist, naught, none, etc. The Hebrew letters that compose none are Aleph, Yood and Nun forming the Word picture of strength by works and activities. This strength by works and activities that David was looking for was from man and not God. God will allow you to get to the end of getting strength from others at times when it comes to getting deliverance because we can become to codependent on man and not realize the instability of our own walk on the arm of flesh. It still can be a great minister of the gospel you are looking too but you have to realize that your deliverance is not going to come through a man but rather it will come through God! God can at his choosing use a person to minister in deliverance and many times does. However, for my deliverance God allowed me to get to the end of man where no one could do it and caused me to only look to God and my deliverance is that by which Leonard Ravenhill even witness that took place in the old churches during Smith Wigglesworth’s meetings where the power of God mightily showed forth!!!!!! It was just me and God in my home and I tell you the deliverance came!!!!!!
Therefore, the distinguishing fact we see here is where God is getting David’s eyes off of man delivering him!!!
Comforters (SC # 5162) in Hebrew is nacham naw-kham’ meaning to sigh, e sorry, pity console, avenge, comfort, ease, etc. The Hebrew letters are Nun, Chet and Mem forming the word picture of life that separates massively. David is still looking for the Life of God to come forth unto him massively!
Found (SC # 4672)in Hebrew is matsa maw-tsa meaning to appear or exist, to attain or acquire, to befall, deliver, be enough, present, suffice, etc. The Hebrew letters here for the word found are Mem, Tsade and Aleph forming the word picture of the massive catching of strength; David is still looking for strength through man!
No one (SC # 3808) here in Hebrew is lo pronounced lo meaning no, no one, etc. The Hebrew letters in “no one” are Lamed and Aleph forming the word picture The Authority, Control and Tongue of Strength!! David is still looking for a tongue that would lift him up, a word fitly spoken but he is looking for it from God!
21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. Psalm 69:21 KJV
Gall (SC # 7219) in Hebrew is ro’sh roshe poisonous plant, gall, hemlock, venom, etc. The Hebrew letters that form gall are Resh, Aleph and Sheen forming the word picture destroying the strength of the person. That is what poison does is destroys the strength of someone. Instead when David was in need, at his lowest the enemy through others sent words that would rip away and tear up his strength! Do you see this; this is why you have to guard your heart! Everything that I am writing about today I have experienced because even today someone was trying to give me gall in the midst of my low time! I do not share all the physical attacks my body goes through in doing ministry but believe me if you are on the front lines it most certainly does; the enemy wants to stop you!
I mentioned on my facebook account that yesterday God gave me confirmation as to continue this note series through another confirmation! When I started this note series I cannot even begin to tell you the attacks of the enemy against my person through my mind! Also, the attacks against my body have been rough and I simply do not let others know because God only has me speak what He wants me to speak and at times the enemy will glorify himself by getting people to without God’s leading tell others how sick they are. Now there is a time and place for that but if we are glorifying the enemy more than God something is wrong! We are drinking GALL, the poison of his lies!! With that said when I recently posted something going on with myself which was actually a praise report not putting up the other physical attacks I am enduring because of this note series and getting ready for this weekend’s launch for year 2 of God’s Fire Wall School of the Prophets in South Carolina and dealing with those demonic powers over the state of South Carolina. The warfare that comes against my body to try and stop me from ministering is much but God is greater!!! Well, this person out of ungodly motives makes a comment that is nothing but gall to my person!!!! When I called my husband about it he totally agreed and everything I am writing about is exactly what I am presently experiencing!
Well, in my pressing through yesterday I am driving and would you believe the exact truck that I talked about in the last note that was a tree removal company, GREY’S ROOF AND TREE REMOVAL COMPANY, was right in front of me yesterday all down 119 north in Birmingham, Alabama. I followed behind the truck even leading onto the interstate and that big claw thing that I have never seen except for on this truck as far as personally, is in front of me and I heard God say “Robin do you hear Me?” I said “yes Lord I hear You!” The enemy is trying to claw at our mind and go after our mind!!!!!
The deliverance that you need is in your mind because as a man THINKS IN HIS HEART SO IS HE!
Meat (SC # 1267) in Hebrew is baruwth baw-rooth meaning food and meat. The Hebrew letters that compose meat are Bet, Resh, Vav and Tav forming the Word picture of the House of the Most High being added through the Nail, Yeshua, to form Covenant! David was looking for God’s Covenant but doing so through the arm of flesh (man) to bring it! God has brought COVENANT TO US THROUGH HIS WORD!!! We get fed from the meat of God’s Word which adds and secures unto us Jesus (Yeshua, the Work He has done) not the work of flesh but the Covenant Work of God Alone!
Thirst (SC # 6772) in Hebrew is tsim’ah tsim-aw’ meaning thirst. The Hebrew letters that compose the word thirst here are Tsade, Mem, Aleph and Hey forming the word picture the catching of water to bring strength and reveal that strength. It is only the Living Waters of the Word of God that causes us to thirst no longer because we have caught that water in our mouths and drink of it so that we might be filled with strength from on High by the Living God.
Vinegar (SC # 2558) in Hebrew is chomets, kho’mets meaning vinegar. The Hebrew letters that compose vinegar are Chet, Mem and Tsade forming the word picture a flooding that will catch you and separate you away from that which you desire. Vinegar is acidic and therefore causes your mouth to be dry. It is not something you drink to quench thirst.
Drink (SC # 8248) in Hebrew is shaqah shaw-kaw meaning to quaff, to irrigate, to furnish a potion, drink, drown, etc. The Hebrew letters for drink are Sheen, Qoof and Hey forming the word picture of that which would consume you in the low place and be revealed. In David’s lowest state that which was consuming him was the drink of vinegar, the sour taste that would dry him up and it was being revealed in his circumstances!!! THIS IS A REVELATION GLORY TO GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING????? Are you constantly drinking up your bad report, the negative circumstances, the words and lies of the enemy that would even come through others and those in your own mind??? If you are then you are being consumed by the taste that would catch you and separate you from the Word of Life that is LIVING, IT IS LIVING, IT IS LIVING, LIVING, LIVING!!!!!!! What are your thoughts??????????? What are you thinking on???? It is to the points of your thoughts whether or not you know you are delivered!!!! What does that mean? I’ll give you an example.
Before I was delivered from alcohol my mind was constantly thinking throughout the day about it here and there; it was a struggle!!! Listen to this word “struggle.” I tried to overcome it and did for a while in my flesh (my works) but in time the revealing of what was keeping me in deliverance was revealed as I began to not be set free from the thoughts that plagued me, with which I struggled and my bondage showed up again later! I might have stopped drinking for 2 years but eventually the reality of it showed up later because I HAD BEEN DRINKING VINEGAR, EATTING GALL AND THE MANIFESTATION OF IT WAS THAT I WAS NOT SET FREE!!! GOD DOES NOT DELIVER HALF-WAY!!!! ONCE YOU GET SET FREE FROM BONDAGE you do not STRUGGLE! You do not think about it because it has been removed from your person; there is no place of that bondage resident within you!!!! The enemy of your soul will gladly let you “advance” in what you think is the will of the Father but instead because you have been drinking of vinegar and eating gall you do not realize it is your will and you advance in either ministry or business because you believe you are set free. Then when you have others whom you are mentoring or teaching the enemy will bring the revealing of that vinegar and gall in the bondage that is within your soul that your own arm or man’s arm told you that you were delivered from when in fact there was not even enough power to flick a flea off of you!!!!! Instead you will be in MORE BONDAGE because Jesus speaks about when a demon leaves it finds seven more to return to that house and the last condition is worse than the former!!!!!!! When Jesus delivers you that devil is not going to be able to find place to come by nigh you BECAUSE WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED!!!!! Why do you think those whom you view to be godly fall? Because they have not been set free BY THE WORD OF GOD, BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD!!!!!!
43 But when the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, it roams through dry [arid] places in search of rest, but it does not find any. 44 Then it says, I will go back to my house from which I came out. And when it arrives, it finds the place unoccupied, swept, put in order, and decorated. 45 Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and make their home there. And the last condition of that man becomes worse than the first. So also shall it be with this wicked generation. Matthew 12:43-45 Amp
The reason the spirit came back was because THE WORD WAS NOT THERE!!!!!! IT is the Word of God that sets you free when you keep eating it and speaking it and meditating on it continually that there is WATER IN THE ROCK!!! Holy Spirit is in the Word and watches over the Word that as you continue to speak it and eat it, drink and eat it over and over and over and over it fills up your house where there is no room for the enemy to return or bring back others!!!! If you went through a program for Rehab that is good but is still man it is only, ONLY, ONLY, ONLY AND ONLY THE WORD OF GOD THAT CAN SET YOU FREE!!! Therefore, God allows you to experience the fiery trials and tribulations and suffering of temptations to show you what you still have a struggle with and are not set free from in your soul!!
22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap. Psalm 69:20-22 KJV
Table (SC # 7979) in Hebrew is shulchan, shool-khawn meaning a table by implying a meal. The Hebrew letters here for table are Sheen, Lamed, Chet and Nun forming the word picture of that which is consumed by the tongue causes separation through its activities. Therefore, the enemy is still eating at his own table but when you stop eating the gall from his table God removes that table out of your soul so you no longer partake of it!!! However, get this because the enemy can only partake of the gall since there is no truth in him. The enemy will keep eating at that table not realizing you have stopped and find out that their own table will become a snare to them!!
Snare (SC # 6341) in Hebrew is pach, pakh meaning sheet, pounded, net, snare, etc. The Hebrew letters that compose this word are Pey and Chet forming the word picture that the word separates. The enemy will be ensnared by his own words and it will separate him out of your soul because the Word of God has been prospering and light and darkness have nothing in common!! The attack against your soul, the darkness is being utterly uprooted and removed by the power of the Light of God’s Truth, the Word!!
Welfare (SC # 7965) in Hebrew is shalowm and means welfare, prosperity and safe. The Hebrew letters for the word welfare are Sheen, Lamed, Vav and Mem indicating that which through the tongue would consume and add massively. The enemy thought he would have you added to his efforts and that it would benefit him by keeping you in bondage. But we see here that David reveals that which the enemy thought would prosper did not but instead became a trap for the enemy!
Trap (SC # 4170) in Hebrew is mowesh, mo-kashe meaning a noose, a hook, snare, trap, etc. The Hebrew letters for trap are Mem, Vav, Qoof and Sheen forming the word picture chaos added to bring low and destroy!!!!! GLORY TO GOD!!!! LOL THE CHAOS THAT THE ENEMY FED YOU AND KEPT SERVING YOU THROUGH GALL AND VINEGAR, WHICH he WAS EATING BECAME HIS OWN TRAP AND BACKFIRED ON HIM!!!!!! IT IS ISAIAH 54:17!!!!
14 You shall establish yourself in righteousness (rightness, in conformity with God’s will and order): you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near you. 15 Behold, they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you. 16 Behold, I have created the smith who blows on the fire of coals and who produces a weapon for its purpose; and I have created the devastator to destroy. 17 But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord. Isaiah 54:14-17 Amp
The tongue of the enemy that rises up against your soul, God has created for it a weapon of destruction that will devastate and destroy the enemy!!!! That tongue that David dealt with was being judged by the Lord God and the enemy fell in his own trap! Your inheritance is peace, God’s peace which rules your heart, your mind!!!! This is your inheritance!!
20 Reproach and shame (that which would separate me from seeing the Word of the Most High Revealed) has broken my heart (is attempting to destroy the house of my person by my enemy’s tongue); and I am full of distress (because the activities that are added unto me by my enemy are meant to destroy me); and I expected someone to take pity on me (I became so low in order that I could see the Nail, Yeshua, adding and securing unto me in order to reveal the adding of Your life God so I could enter), but there was none (the strength of man’s works and activities did nothing for me); and for comforters (those that would bring Your life and separate me massively unto you), but I found none (I only found man’s strength and authority through his tongue which did nothing for me). 21 They gave me also gall for food (by destroying the strength of my person when instead I wanted the House of the Most High to add Covenant to me); and in my thirst (I wanted to catch water to bring strength massively so that Your strength would be revealed) but they gave me vinegar to drink (their drink when tasted separated me from that drink of Your waters I so desperately desired and in my lowest state that which was consuming me was being revealed). 22 Let the their table become a snare before them (that which they consume with their tongue will cause them to be separated in their own activities and that which they speak will separate them from me); and that which should have been for their own prosperity (let them be consumed by their own tongue spoken against me and let it be added unto them massively), let it become a trap (add chaos unto them to bring them low and cause them to be utterly destroyed).

Part 6 Pulling Down the Cursed Structure of Pride through the Operation of Leviathan by Robin Kirby-Gatto
By: Robin Kirby-Gatto
Job 41 has the description regarding the creature leviathan. Remember that leviathan is indicative of pride, which causes us to act on the lusts within our heart. Therefore, we will look at this scripture and see what Holy Spirit unveils to us.
Can you draw out the leviathan (the crocodile) with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord? Job 41:1 Amp
Here God’s word shows leviathan as it relates to the tongue, what we say. Leviathan is out of control and manifesting pride with what is spoken; pride manifests when we sin with the lips as noted in Note 5. Moreover, the way in which leviathan/pride is given life is by the “tongue.” Leviathan is drawn out of our soul, manifests, through our speech! When we start tearing down the truth of God’s word, then we are operating in pride and allowing leviathan to be given existence and right to operate in our lives. PSALM 15, 140 and PROVERBS 6 STATE:
1 Lord, who shall dwell [temporarily] in Your tabernacle? Who shall dwell [permanently] on Your holy hill?2 He who walks and lives uprightly and blamelessly, who works rightness and justice and speaks and thinks the truth in his heart,3 HE WHO DOES NOT SLANDER WITH HIS TONGUE, NOR DOES EVIL TO HIS FRIEND, NOR TAKES UP A REPROACH AGAINST HIS NEIGHBOR;4 In whose eyes a vile person is despised, but he who honors those who fear the Lord (who revere and worship Him); who swears to his own hurt and does not change;5 [He who] does not put out his money for interest [to one of his own people] and who will not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved. Psalm 15:1-5
2 They devise mischiefs in their heart; continually they gather together and stir up wars.3 THEY SHARPEN THEIR TONGUES LIKE A SERPENT’S; ADDERS’ POISON IS UNDER THEIR LIPS. Psalm 140:2-3
16 These six things the Lord hates, indeed, seven are an abomination to Him:17 A PROUD LOOK [THE SPIRIT THAT MAKES ONE OVERESTIMATE HIMSELF AND UNDERESTIMATE OTHERS], A LYING TONGUE, AND HANDS THAT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD,18 A heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who breathes out lies [even under oath], and he who sows discord among his brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19
Therefore, leviathan is drawn out of man’s heart through the “tongue” the lying tongue that sheds innocent blood that sows discord; it is like tongue of a serpent (leviathan) with adder’s poison. If people are not speaking the truth about others, they are speaking lies, poison, and it gives into the plans of leviathan. Therefore, Holy Spirit has us check our mouth, our tongue and what is coming out of it.
2 Can you put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook or a spike? 3 Will he make many supplications to you [begging to be spared]? Will he speak soft words to you [to coax you to treat him kindly]? 4 Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant forever? 5 Will you play with [the crocodile] as with a bird? Or will you put him on a leash for your maidens? 6 Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? 7 Can you fill his skin with harpoons? Or his head with fishing spears? 8 Job 41:2-8.
Here, God exposes leviathan where man thinks he can control it but the questions merely reveal that man cannot control this creature. The crocodile as we saw in the last note, Part 5, has the strongest bite of any known animal. Therefore, there is no getting near its mouth and piercing its jaw. The crocodile will not beg but simply eat you alive. The crocodile most certainly will not be your servant but cause the one that is fighting it to beg for its life. God here demonstrates that people think they can play with pride, the crocodile, as with a bird which is nothing but foolishness. Putting leviathan on a leash for the maidens indicate showing him off as a pet, which we know is impossible. There is no bargaining over leviathan or dividing him up because he will enslave those that come near him. Again, the ability to overcome pride by oneself is shown as folly when the Word states “can you fill his skin with harpoons? Or his head with fishing spears?” The emphasize here is that in our strength we cannot fight leviathan.
Lay your hand upon him! Remember your battle with him; you will not do [such an ill-advised thing] again! 9 Behold, the hope of [his assailant] is disappointed; one is cast down even at the sight of him! 10 No one is so fierce [and foolhardy] that he dares to stir up [the crocodile]; who then is he who can stand before Me [the beast’s Creator, or dares to contend with Me]? 11 Job 41:8-10.
God unveils the struggle in our own strength we have against the spirit of leviathan, pride, which is aroused. Here by this time Job has unveiled all of his heart to God and in his pride he begins accusing God of all the evil that has come against him.
10 I am weary of my life and loathe it! I will give free expression to my complaint; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.2 I will say to God, Do not condemn me [do not make me guilty]! Show me why You contend with me.3 Does it seem good to You that You should oppress, that You should despise and reject the work of Your hands, and favor the schemes of the wicked? Job 10:1-3.
Job in his own pride now believes he is so much better than God and begins accusing God of evil! The very evil that is in Job’s heart is now manifesting as he speaks to God. Job is clueless that leviathan has been aroused and now Job is tearing down the truth of Who God is and agreeing with the lie of the enemy. Job does not truly know God, the Great I Am, whom made Job a in fearful and wonderful display of His beauty.
GOD’S MIGHTY DISPLAY OF POWER!
Who has first given to Me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heavens is Mine. [Therefore, who can have a claim against God, God Who made the unmastered crocodile?] 12 I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame. 13 Who can strip off [the crocodile’s] outer garment? [Who can penetrate his double coat of mail?] Who shall come within his jaws? 14 Who can open the doors of his [lipless] mouth? His [extended jaws and bare] teeth are terrible round about. 15 His scales are [the crocodile’s] pride, [for his back is made of rows of shields] shut up together [as with] a tight seal; 16 One is so near to another that no air can come between them. 17 They are joined one to another; they stick together so that they cannot be separated. Job 41:11-17.
God’s depiction of leviathan here is that he is the most powerful creature that no one can master leviathan but God! This creature has limbs, strength and a frame that even considering a battle against it is mentally insane. The outer garment of the crocodile is such that it is impenetrable because it is created to be a shield, coat of mail to the creature. Moreover, coming near the jaw of the creature is certain death because of its strong bite and grip on its prey. The scales on the creature are “pride” causing it to be a shield against the inner part of the creature. The shield is so tight that no air can even go between the scales; they are joined one to another.
Job’s pride is stirred up more by the offense of his friends who are still poking at him in their own self righteousness (which is actually the spirit of behemoth operating in them and is in a note series regarding behemoth) that causes pride to be aroused even more in Job.
2 What you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you.3 Surely I wish to speak to the Almighty, and I desire to argue and reason my case with God [that He may explain the conflict between what I believe of Him and what I see of Him].4 But you are forgers of lies [you defame my character most untruthfully]; you are all physicians of no value and have no remedy to offer.5 Oh, that you would altogether hold your peace! Then you would evidence your wisdom and you might pass for wise men. Job 13:2-5.
Job wants to take his case to God to argue and reason with God about what is going on with Job. It sounds to me as though Pride in Job has now caused him to put God on trial! Pride in us will do this! It will cause us to be judge and jury of what is going on in and around us regarding those whom by pride we now believe are operating in some form of pride, and because we have now allowed leviathan to be controlling in us, we then also see Jezebel in others, as well as divination. Therefore, pride in an individual distorts their perception causing them to see evil and have knowledge of evil. We are only to have the knowledge of Life and life abundantly, that is our portion. Here however, Job appears to be having the knowledge between good and evil and calling what is GOOD, God Almighty, evil by accusing God of all the evil that has come upon him! Job’s pride is so aroused and tight that no “air” or breath of Holy Spirit can get through to cause him to receive from God in the midst of his pain and grief. Pride in us can stop the move of Holy Spirit in our lives and we then have quenched Holy Spirit to where Holy Spirit is no longer moving in our ministry, lives, families, business and all that is near to us. Instead we have quenched the flow of Holy Spirit and allowed the flow of leviathan’s pride, the messages of the enemy, which it is speaking to us and everyone else associated with us and we are convinced that it is God’s voice. The deception is stronger and causes us to call that which is evil good and that which is good evil. We begin striking against the anointing and calling it evil, and as we give over to the devil’s attacks flowing through us to come against others we call that good. Pride itself begins to shield our heart from the flow of God’s truth; His Word.
18 His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the [reddish] eyelids of the dawn. 19 Out of his mouth go burning torches, [and] sparks of fire leap out. 20 Out of his nostrils goes forth smoke, as out of a seething pot over a fire of rushes. 21 His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes forth from his mouth. Job 41:18-20 Amp
The sneezing of leviathan is indicative of the vomits of hell that spew out with those given to pride. Everything they say is covered with a stench of pride and they have allowed the shield of pride around their hearts so strong, keeping out God’s Holy Spirit, being unrepentant that pride now has become their spirit, their go to, whom they receive from and it feeds itself. The eyes being reddish like the dawn indicate the change of perception, that now the person is peering through the eyes of pride and not of God. The burning torches out of their mouth with sparks of fire, indicating the tearing down that pride has caused that person or persons to be given over to. Now there is no building up evidenced in their life in the Body of Christ Jesus but rather the fruit of the person or persons is now tearing down, and because of unrepentant hearts the pride increases and causes even more assurance to them they are hearing from God and they continue to tear down the Body of Christ Jesus, all in the name of God, saying it is His justice through them not realizing it is the spew of vomit from satan that is bent on destruction.
The smoke coming out of their nostrils they claim to be that of God’s Holy Place and the incense on His altar when in fact it is the smoke of the enemy in them of pride and they have sold out God’s truth and have entered a mock scene of God’s Holy Place but it is not God’s Holy Place but rather built up scenery by satan with the smoke of pride causing the person to be even more puffed up in their pride and justified in their behaviors and character calling it God! They do not even realize not only is it not God’s Holy Place but it is near the gates of hell that they have set up camp and satan has merely put things in there that would keep them distracted and the pride in them has deceived them; they have not even realized that they have given up God’s Holy Place for the stench of hell! Total deception has entered here!!!!
22 In [the crocodile’s] neck abides strength, and terror dances before him. 23 The folds of his flesh cleave together; they are firm upon him, and they cannot shake [when he moves]. 24 His heart is as firm as a stone, indeed, as solid as a nether millstone. Job 41:22-24.
The deception has now caused pride to rise up more, which is demonstrated in the “neck” of the creature. His heart becomes “firm, as a stone” and the person does not realize that they are backslidden and they keep saying the name Jesus, but they do not know the true Jesus because the fruit is not there in their lives!
33 Either make the tree sound (healthy and good), and its fruit sound (healthy and good), or make the tree rotten (diseased and bad), and its fruit rotten (diseased and bad); for the tree is known and recognized and judged by its fruit.34 You offspring of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil (wicked)? For out of the fullness (the overflow, the superabundance) of the heart the mouth speaks. Matthew 12:33-34.
What is the fruit of what we say about others, what we do to others, what we in our heart think about others? Are we meeting to devise plans of evil against others? Are we coming together and praying for those whom we believe to be in bondage or are we cooking up schemes to discredit them, shame them, and blame them? What is our fruit!!!!?????
25 When [the crocodile] raises himself up, the mighty are afraid; because of terror and the crashing they are beside themselves. 26 Even if one strikes at him with the sword, it cannot get any hold, nor does the spear, the dart, or the javelin. 27 He counts iron as straw and bronze as rotten wood. 28 The arrow cannot make [the crocodile] flee; slingstones are treated by him as stubble. 29 Clubs [also] are counted as stubble; he laughs at the rushing and the rattling of the javelin. 30 His underparts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he spreads [grooves like] a threshing sledge upon the mire. 31 He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a [foaming] pot of ointment. 32 [His swift darting] makes a shining track behind him; one would think the deep to be hoary [with foam].33 Upon earth there is not [the crocodile’s] equal, a creature made without fear and he behaves fearlessly.34 He looks all mighty [beasts of prey] in the face [without terror]; he is monarch over all the sons of pride. [And now, Job, who are you who dares not arouse the unmastered crocodile, yet who dares resist Me, the beast’s Creator, to My face? Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore, who can have a claim against God?] Job 41:1-34
Leviathan is monarch, ruler, over all the sons of pride. (Job 41:34). God commands Job to answer Him; saying he does not arouse the unmastered crocodile but yet resists God to His face! That is right!!!! Only pride would do that which God is exposing!!! Pride was in Lucifer in heaven springing into existence when Lucifer thought he could resist God to His face!! It is no different in us when we think by being given over to pride that we can come against God and His plans by attacking those that are building the Body of Christ Jesus! We see this in Acts 5 where the apostles are seized and put into prison because of preaching the Gospel and eventually later when they were going to be killed all because of jealousy and fury that had risen up in men’s hearts (Pride)!
Leviathan’s whole purpose is to create “FEAR!” The enemy knows that the fear of the Lord keeps us from sin so therefore leviathan operates in making others afraid by the enemy knowing what puts you in fear. Is it from past shame and guilt tactics that worked in making you feel bad? Is it from past issues of rejection to make you feel like you are a defective part of the human race? Is it from past issues of abandonment to make you feel as though you are alone and no one wants you? Whatever it is the enemy knows what it takes to pull you in the group so that it can cause you to bow down and dominate you. Believe you me when you don’t bow down, and after the attacks of the enemy to wound or harm you becomes ineffective, then leviathan will set you up as a public display of what not to do. We see this public display in Acts 5 with the apostles being jailed and beaten so that others will fear to step up in God’s truth. It is the big bully on the playground and thrives on the fact that everyone is in fear of it and he mocks those in the grips of his fear. (Job 41:25-29). The undersides of this spirit are indicated to be “BROKEN POTTERY.” In God’s word we are compared to pottery and He is the potter.
9 Woe TO HIM WHO STRIVES WITH HIS MAKER!—A WORTHLESS PIECE OF BROKEN POTTERY AMONG OTHER PIECES EQUALLY WORTHLESS [AND YET PRESUMING TO STRIVE WITH HIS MAKER]! Shall the clay say to him who fashions it, What do you think you are making? or, Your work has no handles? 10 Woe to him [who complains against his parents that they have begotten him] who says to a father, What are you begetting? or to a woman, With what are you in travail? 11 Thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Would you question Me about things to come concerning My children, and concerning the work of My hands [would you] command Me? Isaiah 45:9-11
Therefore, leviathan takes broken vessels, wounded souls, and uses them in gaining more strength because it is more people that are subjected to the control of this spirit who will not rise up and speak against it. His underparts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he spreads [grooves like] a threshing sledge upon the mire. Job 41:30. The enemy counts on the fact that everyone is going to stay broken in this system so that the system is not bucked to expose Pride, Leviathan. The broken pieces are used to “thresh” upon the mire. Therefore, the enemy uses the broken vessels, wounds in our soul, to be a threshing floor of unending threshing, stirring up wounds within each other, that it is a continual cycle as we saw in the last note of the abusive marriage. Moreover, the enemy has now made his lair a boiling pot and the sea anointment to where people think they are in the anointing of Holy Spirit and they do not realize they are in the boiling pot of the enemy and the only ointment being poured out is that of leviathan’s lair! His House! His system Babylon! The Holy Spirit is so far removed from the person or persons that they think it is the anointing upon them but it is simply them being caught up in the building of Babylon and the ointment of the system that is now paying them is manifesting and they say they are “blessed” and of course they are because Babylon is now paying them and Babylon pays well!
The fruit of this kind of ministry will be as follows:
1- Public humiliation and shaming of those in their church/ministry
2- Closed meetings where gossip is spread with venom devising plans of evil tearing down others.
3- Intimidation to keep others in fear of the powers that be in the church/ministry
4- Exalting themselves in the anointing when it is not the anointing manifesting but rather the ointment of the lair of Babylon which they have built
5- People leaving church/ministry because of woundedness from the system of leviathan
6- No repentance of those in leadership or ministry that have allowed others to be torn down by the spirit of leviathan due to Pride.
7- No growth of their ministry/church where others are growing but rather they are falling into more bondage and wounded more, no signs of true deliverance and healing but rather they have become co-dependent on those in leadership who continue to feed their wounds and allow pride to operate in them where there is no true healing but pride and they begin to be the best critics in the ministry.
8- More wounded people than people that are made whole
9- There will most definitely be a jezebel spirit operating within a ministry/church if leviathan has manifest, along with the behemoth and python spirits. It is the city Babylon that is a house for demons.
We have to pray for the church because this deception is greater than we know! First we have to ask Holy Spirit to search our hearts and then pray for others. Francis Frangipane has a book I recommend in Princes Warriors, which is The Three Battlegrounds. I read the book years ago and I am telling you prayer is the battlefield!!!!
The two Psalms below identify the attack of leviathan in God’s sanctuary but also His deliverance where He even crushes leviathan’s head and give him as food for those creatures inhabiting the wilderness. Psalm 74:14.
A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem, of Asaph.
1 O God, why do You cast us off forever? Why does Your anger burn and smoke against the sheep of Your pasture? 2 [Earnestly] remember Your congregation which You have acquired of old, which You have redeemed to be the tribe of Your heritage; remember Mount Zion, where You have dwelt. 3 Direct Your feet [quickly] to the perpetual ruins and desolations; the foe has devastated and desecrated everything in the sanctuary. 4 In the midst of Your Holy Place Your enemies have roared [with their battle cry]; they set up their own [idol] emblems for signs [of victory]. 5 They seemed like men who lifted up axes upon a thicket of trees to make themselves a record. 6 And then all the carved wood of the Holy Place they broke down with hatchets and hammers. 7 They have set Your sanctuary on fire; they have profaned the dwelling place of Your Name by casting it to the ground. 8 They said in their hearts, Let us make havoc [of such places] altogether. They have burned up all God’s meetinghouses in the land. 9 We do not see our symbols; there is no longer any prophet, neither does any among us know for how long. 10 O God, how long is the adversary to scoff and reproach? Is the enemy to blaspheme and revile Your name forever? 11 Why do You hold back Your hand, even Your right hand? Draw it out of Your bosom and consume them [make an end of them]! 12 Yet God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth. 13 You did divide the [Red] Sea by Your might; You broke the heads of the [Egyptian] dragons in the waters. 14 You crushed the heads of Leviathan (Egypt); You did give him as food for the creatures inhabiting the wilderness. 15 You did cleave open [the rock bringing forth] fountains and streams; You dried up mighty, ever-flowing rivers (the Jordan). 16 The day is Yours, the night also is Yours; You have established the [starry] light and the sun. 17 You have fixed all the borders of the earth [the divisions of land and sea and of the nations]; You have made summer and winter.18 [Earnestly] remember how the enemy has scoffed, O Lord, and reproached You, and how a foolish and impious people has blasphemed Your name. 19 Oh, do not deliver the life of your turtledove to the wild beast (to the greedy multitude); forget not the life [of the multitude] of Your poor forever. 20 Have regard for the covenant [You made with Abraham], for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence. 21 Oh, let not the downtrodden return in shame; let the oppressed and needy praise Your name.22 Arise, O God, plead Your own cause; remember [earnestly] how the foolish and impious man scoffs and reproaches You day after day and all day long.23 Do not forget the [clamoring] voices of Your adversaries, the tumult of those who rise up against You, which ascends continually. Psalm 74:1-23
25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, in which are swarms of innumerable creeping things, creatures both small and great. 26 There go the ships of the sea, and Leviathan (the sea monster), which You have formed to sport in it. 27 These all wait and are dependent upon You, that You may give them their food in due season. 28 When You give it to them, they gather it up; You open Your hand, and they are filled with good things. 29 When You hide Your face, they are troubled and dismayed; when You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. 30 When You send forth Your Spirit and give them breath, they are created, and You replenish the face of the ground. 31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works— 32 Who looks on the earth, and it quakes and trembles, Who touches the mountains, and they smoke! 33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. 34 May my meditation be sweet to Him; as for me, I will rejoice in the Lord. 35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Psalm 104:25-35
It God’s Holy Spirit that brings forth the breath of life we are to fight with, His Praise, which is our weapon and war against this attack of leviathan coming against us! This attack when it is operating through others causes weightiness, heaviness that weighs you down; it is after your joy because the joy of the Lord is your strength. The enemy is after your strength in order to cause you to grow weary and hopeless to keep hitting you so that you no longer are a threat to the system and you are a casualty of war if you do not bow down to it.
THE DESTRUCITON OF LEVIATHAN PRIDE!
27 In that day [the Lord will deliver Israel from her enemies and also from the rebel powers of evil and darkness] His sharp and unrelenting, great, and strong sword will visit and PUNISH LEVIATHAN THE SWIFTLY FLEEING SERPENT, LEVIATHAN THE TWISTING AND WINDING SERPENT; AND HE WILL SLAY THE MONSTER THAT IS IN THE SEA. 2 In that day [it will be said of the redeemed nation of Israel], A vineyard beloved and lovely; sing a responsive song to it and about it! 3 I, the Lord, am its Keeper; I water it every moment; lest anyone harm it, I guard and keep it night and day. 4 Wrath is not in Me. Would that the briers and thorns [the wicked internal foe] were lined up against Me in battle! I would stride in against them; I would burn them up together. 5 OR ELSE [IF ALL ISRAEL WOULD ESCAPE BEING BURNED UP TOGETHER THERE IS BUT ONE ALTERNATIVE], LET THEM TAKE HOLD OF MY STRENGTH AND MAKE COMPLETE SURRENDER TO MY PROTECTION, THAT THEY MAY MAKE PEACE WITH ME! YES, LET THEM MAKE PEACE WITH ME! 6 In the days and generations to come Jacob shall take root; Israel shall blossom and send forth shoots and fill the whole world with fruit [of the knowledge of the true God]. 7 Has [the Lord] smitten [Israel] as He smote those who smote them? Or have [the Israelites] been slain as their slayers were slain? 8 By driving them out of Canaan, by exile, You contended with them in a measure [O Lord]—He removed them with His rough blast as in the day of the east wind. 9 Only on this condition shall the iniquity of Jacob (Israel) be forgiven and purged, and this shall be the full fruit [God requires] for taking away his sin: that [Israel] should make all the stones of the [idol] altars like chalk stones crushed to pieces, so that the Asherim and the sun-images shall not remain standing or rise again. 10 For the fortified city is solitary, a habitation deserted and forsaken like the wilderness; there the calf grazes, and there he lies down; he strips its branches and eats its twigs. 11 When its boughs are withered and dry, they are broken off; the women come and set them afire. For they are a people of no understanding or discernment—witless folk; therefore He Who made them will not have compassion on them, and He Who formed them will show them no favor. 12 And it shall be in that day that the Lord will thresh out His grain from the flood of the River [Euphrates] to the Brook of Egypt, and you will be gathered one by one and one to another, O children of Israel! 13 And it shall be in that day that a great trumpet will be blown; and they will come who were lost and ready to perish in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt, and they will worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem. Isaiah 27:1-13.

By: Robin Kirby-Gatto
The ultimate goal for leviathan, as we saw in Part 4, is to tear down the Body of Christ Jesus so that she does not rise into the perfection and full equipping of the saints into the maturity of faith in Christ Jesus. Therefore, a person or ministry given over to this spirit will have the fruit of division and divisiveness operating.
15 This [superficial] wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish (demoniacal).16 For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry and selfish ambition), there will also be confusion (unrest, disharmony, rebellion) and all sorts of evil and vile practices.17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity). James 3:15-17.
Leviathan in Hebrew is livyâthân meaning “a wreathed animal, serpent, the crocodile or some other large sea monster, the constellation of the dragon; also a symbol of Babylon.” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3882). The root word of leviathan is lâvâh which means “to twine, to unite, to remain, also to borrow (as in the form of obligation) to lend, abide with, cleave, join (self).” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3867). This root word of leviathan is the same root word for “Levi” that is Lêvîy a son of Jacob, the tribe which was chosen to serve God’s HOUSE, to serve Aaron the Priest. (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3878). Levi in Hebrew means “attached” and comes from the root word lâvâh.” (Part 2 of Pulling Down the Cursed Structure of Pride in Leviathan). As we learned earlier the spirit of leviathan is going to draw that which is united, cleaved, abiding with God by causing pride to rise up in them so that they begin pulling away from building the Body of Christ Jesus and instead bring division and begin building the enemy’s system Babylon. Leviathan is a symbol for Babylon, as well as indicating sea monster, serpent, crocodile and constellation for the dragon (satan). Therefore, we can see the enemy’s kingdom all through the word, ending in Revelation 19 where she is fallen and depiction of the city Babylon is in Revelation 18.
18 Then I saw another angel descending from heaven, possessing great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his radiance and splendor.2 And he shouted with a mighty voice, She is fallen! Mighty Babylon is fallen! She has become a resort and dwelling place for demons, a dungeon haunted by every loathsome spirit, an abode for every filthy and detestable bird.3 For all nations have drunk the wine of her passionate unchastity, and the rulers and leaders of the earth have joined with her in committing fornication (idolatry), and the businessmen of the earth have become rich with the wealth of her excessive luxury and wantonness.4 I THEN HEARD ANOTHER VOICE FROM HEAVEN SAYING, COME OUT FROM HER, MY PEOPLE, SO THAT YOU MAY NOT SHARE IN HER SINS, NEITHER PARTICIPATE IN HER PLAGUES.5 FOR HER INIQUITIES (HER CRIMES AND TRANSGRESSIONS) ARE PILED UP AS HIGH AS HEAVEN, AND GOD HAS REMEMBERED HER WICKEDNESS AND [HER] CRIMES [AND CALLS THEM UP FOR SETTLEMENT].6 Repay to her what she herself has paid [to others] and double [her doom] in accordance with what she has done. Mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed [for others].7 To the degree that she glorified herself and reveled in her wantonness [living deliciously and luxuriously], to that measure impose on her torment and anguish and tears and mourning. Since in her heart she boasts, I am not a widow; as a queen [on a throne] I sit, and I shall never see suffering or experience sorrow—8 So shall her plagues (afflictions, calamities) come thick upon her in a single day, pestilence and anguish and sorrow and famine; and she shall be utterly consumed (burned up with fire), for mighty is the Lord God Who judges her.9 And the rulers and leaders of the earth who joined her in her immorality (idolatry) and luxuriated with her will weep and beat their breasts and lament over her when they see the smoke of her conflagration. 10 They will stand a long way off, in terror of her torment, and they will cry, Woe and alas, the great city, the mighty city, Babylon! In one single hour how your doom (judgment) has overtaken you! 11 And earth’s businessmen will weep and grieve over her because no one buys their freight (cargo) any more. 12 Their merchandise is of gold, silver, precious stones, and pearls; of fine linen, purple, silk, and scarlet [stuffs]; all kinds of scented wood, all sorts of articles of ivory, all varieties of objects of costly woods, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 Of cinnamon, spices, incense, ointment and perfume, and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, fine flour and wheat; of cattle and sheep, horses and conveyances; and of slaves (the bodies) and souls of men! 14 The ripe fruits and delicacies for which your soul longed have gone from you, and all your luxuries and dainties, your elegance and splendor are lost to you, never again to be recovered or experienced! 15 The dealers who handled these articles, who grew wealthy through their business with her, will stand a long way off, in terror of her doom and torment, weeping and grieving aloud, and saying, 16 Alas, alas for the great city that was robed in fine linen, in purple and scarlet, bedecked and glittering with gold, with precious stones, and with pearls! 17 Because in one [single] hour all the vast wealth has been destroyed (wiped out). And all ship captains and pilots, navigators and all who live by seafaring, the crews and all who ply their trade on the sea, stood a long way off, 18 And exclaimed as they watched the smoke of her burning, What city could be compared to the great city!19 And they threw dust on their heads as they wept and grieved, exclaiming, Woe and alas, for the great city, where all who had ships on the sea grew rich [through her extravagance] from her great wealth! In one single hour she has been destroyed and has become a desert! 20 Rejoice (celebrate) over her, O heaven! O saints (people of God) and apostles and prophets, because God has executed vengeance for you upon her! 21 Then a single powerful angel took up a boulder like a great millstone and flung it into the sea, crying, With such violence shall Babylon the great city be hurled down to destruction and shall never again be found. 22 And the sound of harpists and minstrels and flute players and trumpeters shall never again be heard in you, and no skilled artisan of any craft shall ever again be found in you, and the sound of the millstone shall never again be heard in you.23 An d never again shall the light of a lamp shine in you, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall never be heard in you again; for your businessmen were the great and prominent men of the earth, and by your magic spells and poisonous charm all nations were led astray (seduced and deluded). 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all those who have been slain (slaughtered) on earth. Revelation 18:1-24
The Babylon system, which of leviathan, purposes to destroy God’s people and hold them captive. Those prophets and apostles that have stood up against the system of Babylon all through God’s word were slaughtered for standing up for God’s truth. Much martyrdom is a result of standing against the system of Babylon, satan’s system, and exposing it to the light. We see now in America that is a hate crime to stand on God’s Word that a marriage is defined by God’s Word that a husband shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife and they shall become one. When this truth is stood firmly on and exposes that sodomy is not of God’s truth but profanes Him in every way and reveals the nature of man’s condition of having a depraved mind it is considered evil today. That is how far we have come now; Babylon is enlarging with the materialism, worldliness, and lust rampant so much all because of pride birthing the existence of sin and iniquity. The enemy is content with people who are given over to pride because he knows that they will give into the lusts within their own heart and act on them. Lust causes us to covet something but it is pride within us that causes us to act on the lust! Why else would King David who stayed home from war, coveting Bathsheba, act on putting her husband on the front lines so he would die in order to marry her. King David lusted for Bathsheba, but it was pride in him that was stirred up causing him to steal, kill and destroy through the enemy. King David tore down the sacred union God had created, marriage, and stole another man’s wife, killed a man to have what he wanted. That is the same thing leviathan through pride stirred up in us gets us to do in order that we would not walk in the wisdom from above, God’s wisdom, but would prefer to walk in worldly wisdom obtaining that which we lust for by pride swelling up in us to get it!
When Holy Spirit starts exposing those things in our soul that were built on the world system, the system of Babylon, and we repent of it, a stripping process will come in order to remove it out of our life. Therefore, if we obtained a house and cars from the Babylon system when the stripping process happens we will have those things pulled away from us in order that we would only build up God’s Kingdom that cannot be shaken.
6 For thus says the Lord of hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake and make tremble the [starry] heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations and the desire and the precious things of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the Lord of hosts. 8 The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says the Lord of hosts. 9 The latter glory of this house [with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says the Lord of hosts. Haggai 2:6-9.
God allows the shaking to shake all that is not of Him out of our lives! When Rich and I went through the shaking, we lost a home, a car, other material objects we had and all that we had obtained because lust in us wanted that object and pride caused us to act in a manner to get that object. The pride could have been manifested in getting a loan God did not tell us to take out, working more jobs than we were able to so that the money would come in to pay for all the debt that was Babylon’s debt. No matter what we tried to do to keep the things which were in our hands as a result of Babylon we found out we could not keep; we had come into agreement with God’s word that we wanted nothing but Him! Right before this stripping of the Babylon system in our lives I prayed this prayer “God take down all my idols, make me humble and give me prudence!” Well let me tell you that prayer worked immediately and before you could blink an eye our lives had totally changed where we lost much, but that which we lost was Babylon! Therefore, when we were stripped to a stump many people thought that we were cursed and irresponsible because we could not pay our bills to keep that which Babylon gave us to only keep us distracted and asleep so we would not rise up in the call of Christ Jesus. We had to pray for others that were misjudging us knowing that we were after God’s plans and purposes, the Kingdom of God and wanted nothing of this world.
EVERYTHING THAT IS NOT OF GOD WILL BE SHAKEN OUT OF YOUR LIFE IF YOU ALLOW IT!!!!
But oh my the blessings we walk in now; what we have now is double portion to what we had before but it was a process of years. The stripping happened to remove that which is not of God only to build and plant God’s Kingdom in an accelerated measure and bring that which is of God into our hands and all I can tell you is GOD IS GOOD!!!! Rich and I are walking in God’s promises now by faith and seeing them manifested but it took losing everything only to gain Jesus!
32 Remember Lot’s wife! 33 Whoever tries to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve and quicken it. Luke 17:32-33.
Therefore, God’s Kingdom calls for us to lose everything! When we repent and allow the stripping to come then God accelerates the building of His Kingdom within our lives so that it is made manifest, building the Kingdom of God, and in turn building the Body of Christ Jesus! Therefore, Holy Spirit is exposing the spirit of leviathan distinguished in God’s Word to operate in pride so that we no longer build Babylon but rather build the Body of Christ Jesus! God speaks of Babylon’s destruction in Jeremiah 51, depicting her as a seductress luring people into her demise. God calls His people out of her and moreover, in verse 55 declares His army shall arise and it will be His people whose voice sounds like a ROAR, of great waters and all I could think about was Revelation 5:5 the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!!!
51 Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will raise up against Babylon and against those who dwell among those rebelling against Me a destroying wind and spirit;2 And I will send to Babylon strangers or winnowers who will winnow her and will empty her land; for in the day of calamity they will be against her on every side.3 Against him who bends let the archer bend his bow, and against him who lifts himself up in his coat of mail. And spare not her young men; devote [to God] and utterly destroy her entire host.4 Thus they shall fall down slain in the land of the Chaldeans, and wounded in her streets.5 For Israel has not been widowed and forsaken, nor has Judah, by his God, the Lord of hosts, though their land is full of guilt against the Holy One of Israel.6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon! Let every man save his life! Let not destruction come upon you through her [punishment for] sin and guilt. For it is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He will render to her a recompense.7 Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, making all the earth drunken. The nations drank of her wine; therefore the nations have gone mad.8 Babylon has suddenly fallen and is shattered (destroyed)! Wail for her [if you care to]! Get balm for her [incurable] pain; if [you do] so she may [possibly] be healed!9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed. Forsake her and let us each go to his own country, for her guilt and the judgment against her reach to heaven and are lifted even to the skies.10 The Lord has brought forth and made known the righteousness [of our cause]; come and let us declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God.11 Make clean and sharp the arrows, take up the shields or coats of armor [and cover your bodies with them]! The Lord has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Medes [who with the Persians will destroy the Babylonian Empire], for His purpose concerning Babylon is to destroy it; for that is the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance [upon Babylon for the plundering and destruction] of His temple.12 Set up a standard or signal [to spread the news] upon the walls of Babylon! Make the watch and blockade strong, set the guards, prepare the ambushes! For the Lord has both purposed and done that which He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.13 O [Babylon] you who dwell by many waters, rich in treasures, your end has come, and the line measuring your life is cut.14 The Lord of hosts has sworn by Himself, saying, Surely I will fill you with men, as with [a swarm of] locusts [who strip a land clean], and they will lift up a song and shout [of victory] over you.15 He made the earth by His power; He established the world by His wisdom and stretched out the heavens by His understanding.16 When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from His treasuries.17 Every man has become stupid and brutelike, without knowledge [of God]; every goldsmith is put to shame by the images he has made; for his molten idols are a lie, and there is no breath [of life] in them.18 They are worthless (emptiness, falsity, futility), a work of delusion and worthy of derision; in the time of their inspection and punishment they shall [helplessly] perish.19 Not like these [gods] is He Who is the Portion of Jacob [the true God on Whom Israel has a claim], for He is the One Who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of His inheritance—the Lord of hosts is His name.20 You [Cyrus of Persia, soon to conquer Babylon] are My battle-ax or maul and weapon of war—for with you I break nations in pieces, with you I destroy kingdoms,21 With you I break in pieces the horse and his rider, with you I break in pieces the chariot and the charioteer,22 With you I break in pieces man and woman, with you I break in pieces old man and youth, with you I break in pieces young man and maiden,23 With you I break in pieces the shepherd and his flock, with you I break in pieces the farmer and his yoke of oxen, and with you I break in pieces governors and commanders.24 And I will [completely] repay Babylon and all the inhabitants of Chaldea for all the evil that they have done in Zion—before your very eyes [I will do it], says the Lord.25 Behold, I am against you, says the Lord, O destroying mountain [which is burning out, you who will be as barren and desolate as an extinct volcano], you who [would] destroy the whole earth. I will stretch out My hand over and against you and roll you down from the [burnt] crags and will make you a burnt-out mountain [of combustive fires].26 And [O Babylon] they shall not take your cracked stones for a cornerstone, or any stone for foundations, but you shall be waste and desolate forever, says the Lord.27 Set up a standard or signal in the land [to spread the news]! Blow the trumpet among the nations! Prepare and dedicate the nations for war against her; call against her the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz. Appoint a marshal against her; cause the horses to come up like [a swarm of] locusts [when their wings are not yet released from their horny cases].28 Prepare and dedicate the nations for war against her—the kings of Media, with their governors and commanders (deputies), and every land of their dominion.29 [I foresee this:] The land trembles and writhes in pain and sorrow, for the purposes of the Lord against Babylon stand—to make the land of Babylon a desolation without inhabitant.30 The mighty warriors of Babylon have ceased to fight; they have remained in their holds. Their might has failed; they have become [weak and helpless] like women. Her dwelling places are burned up; her bars [and defenses generally] are broken.31 One post shall run to meet another and one messenger to meet another to show the king of Babylon that his city is taken on every side and to its farthest end,32 And that the passages [or ferries across the Euphrates] are stopped, and the great marshes they [the Medes] have burned with fire, and the men of war are frightened.33 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: The Daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is [being prepared]; yet a little while and the time of harvest shall come to her.34 [The inhabitants of Zion say] Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon has devoured us, he has crushed us, he has made us an empty vessel. Like a monster he has swallowed us up, he has filled his belly with our delicacies; he has rinsed us out and cast us away.35 May the violence done to me and to my flesh and blood be upon Babylon, will the inhabitant of Zion say; and, May my blood be upon the inhabitants of Chaldea, will Jerusalem say.36 Therefore thus says the Lord: Behold, I will plead your cause and take vengeance for you. I will dry up her lake or great reservoir and make her fountain dry.37 And Babylon shall become heaps [of ruins], a dwelling place of jackals, a horror (an astonishing desolation) and a hissing [of amazement], without inhabitant.38 They [the Chaldean lords] shall be roaring together [before their sudden capture] like young lions [over their prey], they [the princes] shall be growling like lions’ whelps.39 When the revelers are inflamed [with wine and lust during their drinking bouts], I will prepare them a feast [of My wrath] and make them drunk, that they may rejoice and fall asleep to a perpetual sleep and not waken, says the Lord.40 I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams together with he-goats.41 How Sheshach [Babylon] is taken! And the praise of the whole earth is surprised and seized! How Babylon has become an astonishing desolation and a horror among the nations!42 The sea has come up upon Babylon; she is covered with the tumult and multitude of its waves.43 Her cities have become a desolation and a horror, a land of drought and a wilderness, a land in which no one lives, nor does any son of man pass through it.44 And I will punish and execute judgment upon Bel [the god] in Babylon and take out of his mouth what he has swallowed up [the sacred vessels and the people of Judah and elsewhere who were taken captive]. The nations will not flow any more to him. Yes, the wall of Babylon has fallen!45 My people, come out of the midst of her! And let every man save his life from the fierce anger of the Lord!46 And beware, lest your heart faint and you be afraid at the report (rumor) heard in the land; for in one year shall one report come and in another year another report, and violence shall be in the land, ruler against ruler.47 Therefore behold, the days will come when I will execute judgment and punishment upon the idols of Babylon; her whole land will be confounded and put to shame, and all her slain will fall in the midst of her.48 Then heaven and earth and all that is in them shall sing for joy over Babylon, for the [Median] destroyers shall come against her from the north, says the Lord.49 As Babylon caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all [her] land.50 You who have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still! [Seriously and earnestly] remember the Lord from afar [Babylon], and let [desolate] Jerusalem come into your mind.51 We are confounded and ashamed, for we have heard reproach; confusion and shame have covered our faces, for strangers have come into the [most] sacred parts of the sanctuary of the Lord [even those forbidden for entrance by all but the high priest or the appointed priests].52 Therefore behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will execute judgment upon [Babylon’s] idols and images, and throughout all her land the wounded will groan.53 Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify her strong height (her lofty stronghold), yet destroyers will come upon her from Me, says the Lord.54 The sound of a cry [comes] from Babylon, and [the sound of] great destruction and ruin from the land of the Chaldeans!55 For the Lord is destroying Babylon and laying her waste and stilling her great voice [the hum of the city’s life]. And the waves [of her conquerors] roar like great waters, the noise of their voices is raised up [like the tramping of an army].56 For the destroyer is coming upon her, upon Babylon; and her mighty warriors are taken, their bows are broken in pieces; for the Lord is a God of recompense; He will surely requite.57 And I will make drunk her princes and her wise men, her governors and her commanders (deputies) and her mighty warriors; and they will sleep a perpetual sleep and not waken, says the King—the Lord of hosts is His name.58 Thus says the Lord of hosts: The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly overthrown and [the foundations] made bare, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; the peoples shall labor in vain, and the nations [only] to satisfy the fire, and they shall be weary.59 The word that Jeremiah the prophet commanded Seraiah son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, when he went with Zedekiah king of Judah to Babylon in the fourth year of his reign. Now this Seraiah was chief chamberlain or quartermaster [and brother of Baruch].60 So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that would come upon Babylon—even all these words that are written against Babylon.61 And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When you come to Babylon, see to it that you read all these words.62 Then say, O Lord, You have spoken concerning this place that it shall be cut off, so that nothing shall remain and dwell in it, neither man nor beast; but it shall be desolate forever.63 And it shall be that when you have finished reading this book, you shall bind a stone to it and cast it into the midst of the Euphrates.64 Then say, Thus will Babylon sink and not rise because of the evil that I will bring upon her; and [the Babylonians] will be weary (hopelessly exhausted). Thus far are the words of Jeremiah. Jeremiah 51:1-64 Amp
Therefore, Babylon in the word of God is exposed to the light in order that the destruction of that system is manifest so that it will not hold God’s people in bondage. This system when it creeps into a church, a ministry, a business, a family, a person’s life all it does is destroy God’s work, the building of His Body!!!
For example, this can be compared to an abusive relationship where a woman stays with an abusive husband because he has destroyed her confidence and who God has made her that she not only takes the abuse but stays with him even more so because of the abuse. Leviathan only destroys and wounds those under its control so it can allow a hook to get in everyone’s soul to manifest the spirit all throughout the group.
Domestic abuse falls into a common pattern, or cycle of violence:
◾ Abuse – Your abusive partner lashes out with aggressive, belittling, or violent behavior. The abuse is a power play designed to show you “who is boss.”
◾Guilt – After abusing you, your partner feels guilt, but not over what he’s done. He’s more worried about the possibility of being caught and facing consequences for his abusive behavior.
◾Excuses – Your abuser rationalizes what he or she has done. The person may come up with a string of excuses or blame you for the abusive behavior—anything to avoid taking responsibility.
◾”Normal” behavior — The abuser does everything he can to regain control and keep the victim in the relationship. He may act as if nothing has happened, or he may turn on the charm. This peaceful honeymoon phase may give the victim hope that the abuser has really changed this time.
◾Fantasy and planning – Your abuser begins to fantasize about abusing you again. He spends a lot of time thinking about what you’ve done wrong and how he’ll make you pay. Then he makes a plan for turning the fantasy of abuse into reality.
◾Set-up – Your abuser sets you up and puts his plan in motion, creating a situation where he can justify abusing you.
Your abuser’s apologies and loving gestures in between the episodes of abuse can make it difficult to leave. He may make you believe that you are the only person who can help him, that things will be different this time, and that he truly loves you. However, the dangers of staying are very real.

The leviathan spirit lashes out with aggressive behaviors that are used in belittling others in order to dominate and control. In addition, it creates a state of wounding in the soul of those under its system so that continue the wounding and the person being used by leviathan is kept in constant guilt over their sin and their unrepentant heart keeps them blind to the true repentance that needs to come to set them free from being the bully in the system of leviathan. The reason the person(s) are not repentant is actually PRIDE. After the person(s) is being used by the leviathan spirit commit a sinful act against another through the leviathan spirit they sit around and justify the reason to their ungodly actions, thinking they are trying to protect the system by wounding those whom they find a threat. Then the crazy thing about it is that those whom the system wounds keeps the wounded in their system through keeping them in guilt but in order to make themselves feel good are nice to them superficially as an abuser with his spouse. Later as in an abusive relationship relating to fantasy, the abuser fantasizes of abusing again. Likewise, those under leviathan’s control get together to meet and stir up lies against you, poison from the adder’s egg, they weave the web of deceit of leviathan and later they allow the enemy to set up the circumstance in which to commit the act of sin. David shows this abundantly in the Psalms
Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. Psalm 120:2
For the mouths of the wicked and the mouth of deceit are opened against me; they have spoken to me and against me with lying tongues. Psalm 109:2
They set their mouths against and speak down from heaven, and their tongues swagger through the earth [invading even heaven with blasphemy and smearing earth with slanders]. Psalm 73:9
Who whet their tongues like a sword, who aim venomous words like arrows, Psalm 64:3
My life is among lions; I must lie among those who are aflame—the sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, their tongues sharp swords. Psalm 57:4
The purpose of leviathan, Babylon, is to crush God’s people chew them up and spit them out. That is why we see the crocodile in reference to leviathan because it is those teeth that is seen as crushing something.
For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: The Daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is [being prepared]; yet a little while and the time of harvest shall come to her.34 [The inhabitants of Zion say] Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon has devoured us, he has crushed us, he has made us an empty vessel. Like a monster he has swallowed us up, he has filled his belly with our delicacies; he has rinsed us out and cast us away. Jeremiah 51:33-34 Amp.
A crocodile has the most powerful bite of any animal, but the muscles that actually open their jaws is very weak. Therefore, leviathan can be attacked and not steal, kill and destroy wounding others by binding up his mouth!!!!!!! God gives us the ability to bind up the enemy and whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven. For the Spirit of leviathan to begin to be conquered in our lives we have to bind that spirit from operating and in the next note you will see further spiritual warfare regarding leviathan.
“Since they feed by grabbing and holding onto their prey, they have evolved sharp teeth for tearing and holding onto flesh, and powerful muscles to close the jaws and hold them shut. These jaws can bite down with immense force, by far the strongest bite of any animal. The pressure of the crocodile’s bite is more than 5,000 pounds per square inch (30,000 kPa), compared to just 335 pounds per square inch (2,300 kPa) for a Rottweiler, 400 pounds per square inch (2,800 kPa) for a large great white shark, 800 pounds per square inch (6,000 kPa) to 1,000 pounds per square inch (7,000 kPa) for a hyena, or 2,000 pounds per square inch (10,000 kPa) for a large alligator. The jaws are opened, however, by a very weak set of muscles. Crocodiles can thus be subdued for study or transport by taping their jaws or holding their jaws shut with large rubber bands cut from automobile inner tubes. They have limited lateral (side-to-side) neck movement.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocodile)
It is going to take God’s people who are bold like King David that will stand up against Goliath, against leviathan, and stop the torment coming against God’s people so they are no longer mangled and wounded by the spirit of leviathan. When you stand up against the spirit believe me people will say you are proud, arrogant, and in rebellion that are operating leviathan because it allows them to stay in deception. However, if you press through even those that were under leviathan’s control coming against you will eventually get released of its grip and come into true repentance. God is raising those up like King David, William Wallace, Joan of Arc, Esther, Gideon, Joshua and more that will stand against a corrupt system and say “NO, NOT ON MY WATCH IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!”
THE ROAR CRY OF THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH REVELATION 5:5 IN US IS THE SOUND OF MANY WATERS REVELATION 1:15 AND CAUSING GOD’S PEOPLE TO UNITE TO RELEASE HIS WORD THAT IS A TUMULT LIKE A ROAR OF WAVES CRASHING (JEREMIAH 51:55) AGAINST LEVIATHAN.
IT HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN WHERE A LION TAKES DOWN A CROCODILE. IN THE LEVIATHAN NOTE SERIES ONE OF THE MEANINGS OF LEVIATHAN IS CROCODILE AND BABYLON AND BABYLON CRUSHES GOD’S PEOPLE WHEN THEY ARE IN CAPTIVITY. OK GET THIS THE CROCODILE HAS THE STRONGEST GRIP OF ANY ANIMAL IN THE WORLD (IN MY 5TH NOTE OF LEVIATHAN / PRIDE SERIES) AND IS THAT OF 5,000 LBS PER SQUARE INCH!!! NEVER HAS A CROCODILE BEEN DEFEATED BY A LION UNTIL……………………………………………… ONE DAY, DON’T YOU LOVE THE ONE DAYS…… A CROCODILE MESSES WITH A CUB AND 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES 3 LIONESSES GET TOGETHER AND TAKE THE CROCODILE DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US IS RISING UP THIS HOUR TO TAKE LEVIATHAN DOWN IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (LINK BELOW)
Part 6 to be continued seeing leviathan in God’s Word …………..
By: Robin Kirby-Gatto
In Part 3 we saw that Job did not sin even in the midst of the attack of the enemy taking the entirety of what he had away from him. Moreover, when Job is struck with sickness and in pain he still did not “sin with his lips.”
10 But he said to her, You speak as one of the impious and foolish women would speak. What? Shall we accept [only] good at the hand of God and shall we not accept [also] misfortune and what is of a bad nature? In [spite of] all this, Job did not sin with his lips. Job 2:10.
However, something happened after Job is visited by his friends who sat with him in his pain and grief. They saw him from a far and ripped their clothing crying out in agony for their friend. When Job’s friends came to greet him and comfort him they sat with him in his pain and grief.
11 Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came each one from his own place, Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, for they had made an appointment together to come to condole with him and to comfort him.12 And when they looked from afar off and saw him [disfigured] beyond recognition, they lifted up their voices and wept; and each one tore his robe, and they cast dust over their heads toward the heavens.13 So they sat down with [Job] on the ground for seven days and seven nights, and none spoke a word to him, for they saw that his grief and pain were very great. Job 2:11-13.
It was in the time that Job’s friends sat with him for seven days and seven nights not saying a word to Job that something in those seven days begins to stir within Job to cause pride to rise up. The enemy, satan, here was speaking to Job in those seven days and seven nights as he spoke to Eve in the Garden of Eden. The enemy does not speak to us in audible voice although he can, but rather his preference is to send messages to our mind in order that we would come into agreement with the lie of the enemy, the cursed structure from satan, giving that opportunity to take root in our soul. This is what happened with Job. He had seven days and nights where his friends did not speak the word of God; God is absolutely good, His goodness and mercy endure forever. All Job’s friends did was let Job sit there in his pain and his grief. The enemy will use pain and grief to speak to us. That is why many times the enemy operates through pride in our soul through unhealed wounds. Similar to Job, we can allow that pain and grief to fester in our soul and it provides a door by which the enemy comes to speak to us. The enemy is merely looking for a foothold. Prior to the attacks against Job the enemy truly did not have a foothold and Job was the most righteous man in the earth so much that God bragged about it.
6 Now there was a day when the sons (the angels) of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan (the adversary and accuser) also came among them. 7 And the Lord said to Satan, From where did you come? Then Satan answered the Lord, From going to and fro on the earth and from walking up and down on it. 8 And the Lord said to Satan, Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who [reverently] fears God and abstains from and shuns evil [because it is wrong]? Job 1:6-8
God knew Job’s heart was one after Him. However, within every heart, if it is not guarded in the reverential fear of the Lord there is opportunity for the enemy to speak. That is what happened to Job in those 7 days and nights as he sat in grief and pain, his friends did not speak truth to him but let him be there in his misery. As a result, it was opportunity for satan to speak lies to Job that would cause Job’s heart to be lifted up. allowing pride to enter and this would begin to stir up the spirit of leviathan. There is a stirring within Job’s heart and we see Job begins to curse himself. In the midst of cursing that which God created, him, Job releases out of his lips that which has been in his heart as a result of sitting in his grief and pain for seven days and nights. The attack of the enemy against his soul is what exposed already what was resident and incased within Job’s heart, pride manifested in fear. As Job is cursing the day of his birth, in Job 3:8, he begins to release insight regarding pride/leviathan within the soul of man.
8 Let those curse it who curse the day, who are skilled in rousing up Leviathan Job 3:8
Let those “curse” it…… curse here initially used in Job 3:8 is the word nâqab and means to puncture, to perforate with violence, to specify, designate, appoint, blaspheme, bore, curse, pierce, strike through. (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #5344). The second curse used in Job 3:8 is ârar meaning to execrate; bitterly curse. (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #779). However, when satan was before the Lord saying that Job would curse he was using the word bârak which means to curse as committing treason (turn away). (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #1288). Job did not turn away from God rather He took that which God had called holy and profaned it by cursing the truth. He punctured the cyst of the curse that had built up in his own soul that was full of bitterness and as a result when he violently punctured it in his soul it began to arouse leviathan. Job has allowed the pain and grief to become an unhealed wound where satan begins to send Job messages.
Leviathan speaks to us by sending messages to our mind. If we are not fully rooted and grounded in the truth of the Word of Jesus Christ he will pervert the truth and feed us a lie, allowing the infection of that wound to fester up, swelling full of bitterness and infection against the Lord.
14 Strive to live in peace with everybody and pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will [ever] see the Lord.15 Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another], to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God’s grace (His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing), IN ORDER THAT NO ROOT OF RESENTMENT (RANCOR, BITTERNESS, OR HATRED) SHOOTS FORTH AND CAUSES TROUBLE AND BITTER TORMENT, AND THE MANY BECOME CONTAMINATED AND DEFILED BY IT—16 That no one may become guilty of sexual vice, or become a profane (godless and sacrilegious) person as Esau did, who sold his own birthright for a single meal. Hebrews 12:14-16.
You have to have eyes to see this is where satan begins to feed off our souls, not from what we have, but from that which we do not have, unhealed wounds/ a bitter root. In this hour God is speaking that we have to allow Him to work on our soul getting our soul healed so that the enemy has nothing in us in which to manipulate and pull on. A couple of years ago, the Kia Soul was the new car on the block and the movie Soul Surfer was out. God was speaking then to the Church that we have to let God heal our soul, which is why God’s Fire Wall School of Healing of the Soul started in January 2012.
Lucifer had LUST AND PRIDE, BECAUSE HE LUSTED AFTER THAT WHICH WAS NOT HIS AND BECAME BITTER THAT HE DID NOT HAVE IT THEREFORE PRIDE SPRUNG UP SAYING HE COULD HAVE IT AND LUST CAME INTO EXISTENCE. Lucifer began to devise evil in his heart to desire God’s throne because somehow in all of his splendor and his glorious life an iniquitous root of sin sprung up in his heart, lifting his heart telling him something so ungodly that would cause him to think he could even usurp God Almighty, the Creator of all things! In addition, satan sold the same lie to Eve when he was trying to convince her that God was holding out on Eve by telling her not to eat the fruit because once she did she would be “like God.” The enemy works through distorting the truth and coming to our mind to sell us a lie so that pride can enter. Eve began to covet that which she was not to covet. It was no longer good enough for Eve to be created in God’s image because somehow the enemy sold her a lie that she was missing out causing her to covet being “Like God” or rather being God.
Here is Job, sitting seven days and nights in grief and pain, and the enemy is speaking to his soul, something to the measure that God was holding out on Job when Job deserved more. The enemy did the same thing to Job, telling him, his righteousness was so good that it was horrible for God to hurt Job when instead satan was hurting Job and all God did was bless Job! Job bought the lie! Those seven days and nights were opportunity for Job to sit there and listen to the enemy by sending messages to his mind, filling his heart, causing an infection to swell up of huge bitterness, that after it became big enough and was punctured it let out bitterness that had been swollen up in his soul, which was the sin! Job began to curse the living God, the truth of Who God is, the Great I Am!
IN ORDER THAT NO ROOT OF RESENTMENT (RANCOR, BITTERNESS, OR HATRED) SHOOTS FORTH AND CAUSES TROUBLE AND BITTER TORMENT, AND THE MANY BECOME CONTAMINATED AND DEFILED BY IT—
The root of resentment with Job caused him to allow bitterness and hatred to enter his heart and it caused bitter torment where he became contaminated and defiled by it. Distinguishable from this, when Hannah poured out her bitter complaint to God in 1 Samuel 1 is what not to curse Him but rather empty her soul from the pain that was building up within it and God heard her and answered her cry.
10 And [Hannah] was in distress of soul, praying to the Lord and weeping bitterly.11 She vowed, saying, O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your handmaid and [earnestly] remember, and not forget Your handmaid but will give me a son, I will give him to the Lord all his life; no razor shall touch his head. 12 And as she continued praying before the Lord, Eli noticed her mouth.13 Hannah was speaking in her heart; only her lips moved but her voice was not heard. So Eli thought she was drunk. 14 Eli said to her, How long will you be intoxicated? Put wine away from you. 15 But Hannah answered, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I was pouring out my soul before the Lord 16 Regard not your handmaid as a wicked woman; for out of my great complaint and bitter provocation I have been speaking. 1 Samuel 1:10-16.
Instead, Job is now in the midst of cursing the truth and contaminating all that he knows to be of God and instead cursing it. Job begins to put upon God this evil that has befallen him.
4 [But it is] because the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison which my spirit drinks up; the terrors of God set themselves in array against me. Job 6:4.
Moreover, Job’s three friends are not helping much either because they are agreeing with Job that the reason he is going through this trials and tribulations is because of his sin. They have no knowledge of God bragging on Job at the beginning of the book of Job. God knows full well what Job is able to bear and has not put on him more than he could bear.
Again in Job 7 we see where Job is speaking out of the curse, the punctured bitter root in his soul, which has roused up leviathan, the sea monster.
11 Therefore I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit, I will complain in the bitterness of my soul [O Lord]! 12 Am I THE SEA, OR THE SEA MONSTER, THAT YOU SET A WATCH OVER ME? Job 7:11.
Job is speaking out of the anguish of his heart and this anguish has allowed the bitter root, rancor, and resentment to build up such that pride is swelling in him and he finds himself above this reproach wondering why God has brought this upon him. Job is cursing God, accusing him with bringing evil to him. God does not bring us evil but keeps us away from evil as the Lord’s Prayer Jesus gave us to pray always. 13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Matthew 6:13.
Job begins exalting himself above God out of the bitterness in his own heart.
20 If I have sinned, what [harm] have I done You, O You Watcher and Keeper of men? Why have You set me as a mark for You, so that I am a burden to myself [and You]?21 And why do You not pardon my transgression and take away my iniquity? For now shall I lie down in the dust; and [even if] You will seek me diligently, [it will be too late, for] I shall not be. Job 7:20-21
When Leviathan sends messages to us it is in order that we would believe the lie over the truth. Leviathan speaks to our mind, sending us messages and if we have areas in our heart out of past wounds that would exalt themselves against the Truth then that is a means by which the enemy can use leviathan to come against our soul and eventually we give over to his plans and purposes allowing a divisive spirit in our heart where pride swells up and we believe we are above the reproach we are experiencing and attributing the attack to God. How profane and warped is that? That is what Job did and he was the most righteous man on earth, as identified during his times. And if the most righteous man during his time is able to have this occur in his soul are we above it? No, rather we are to be on guard and watch against this attack!
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
When Leviathan has hit me through a person or group of people it is not for me to give into the attack as personal against me, but rather satan wants me to buy the lie hook, line and sinker. Yes the enemy wants us to believe the lie, because remember we are to be building the Body of Christ Jesus into the perfecting and full equipping of the maturity of the saints in the faith of Christ Jesus, so that they in turn are building the Body of Christ Jesus. Therefore, the enemy will use leviathan to stop such work of the Lord. The enemy hates growth in the Body of Christ Jesus, he hates unity. Therefore, my personal experience has been as follows.
I would be doing the work of the Lord and a circumstance would occur that would actually be set up by the enemy and once the circumstance occurred the way in which the enemy wanted it, then he would send a message to my mind of what exactly is to occur or the interpretation of the occurrence. Since the enemy was invading our ministry to tear it down I thought it was God’s Holy Spirit that spoke to me and came into agreement with the thoughts without going to the Lord and His Word. As a result an increased attack of leviathan began hitting our ministry in order not to build it up but rather tear it down. Initially the door tried to open through flattery and seeing if there was anywhere in my soul that leviathan could hook into in order to build up pride in me, which thank You Jesus God did not allow; it was shut. However, there was another route for leviathan to come in and attack, one where in the past the enemy through unhealed wounds caused rejection by others to begin to tell me that I was bad, not good, and not of God, this was false humility and believe it or not is pride, too! This false humility is allowing the lie of the enemy to be lifted up over the truth that says I am accepted in the Beloved, I am a Royal Priesthood a Holy Nation, I am Holy as God is Holy. I bought the lie of the enemy that is contrary to God’s Word. As a result the enemy would send me messages about who was to do what and begin taking my authority away in ministry and building up his authority in our ministry to pretty much totally destroy it. It was not through one avenue that leviathan attacked, but many; he uses whoever is given over to his destruction. All satan can do is steal, kill and destroy and therefore those others who were used of him believed truly to be hearing from Holy Spirit but it was not Holy Spirit speaking to them because they were speaking death and curses which are not God and bent on destroying our ministry so they bought into the lie and began to allow pride and leviathan to work in them to destroy our ministry from the beginning.
This as a result caused me to turn toward the Lord and His truth, His Word, more and know His truth more than ever so the enemy could not wiggle his way into God’s plans and purposes into our ministry and our lives. Moreover, if I would have let it leviathan would have come in and taken over our ministry to build the City Babylon. We will get to it in the next note but the ultimate goal is this……… are you ready………………………..
We are to build the Body of Christ Jesus, the Church as stated in Ephesians 4:
11 And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church),13 [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him. Ephesians 4:11-13.
However, satan is after destroying the building of the Body of Christ Jesus and moreover, he is bent in building his kingdom, the kingdom of Babylon! Remember the word leviathan in Hebrew and what it means. Leviathan in Hebrew is livyâthân meaning “a wreathed animal, serpent, the crocodile or some other large sea monster, the constellation of the dragon; also a symbol of Babylon.” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3882). Leviathan is the serpent, crocodile, large sea monster, constellation for dragon and a SYMBOL FOR BABYLON! Therefore, if satan can he will by leviathan come into your ministry, church, marriage, family, or life to tear down God’s Body and then afterward begin building his city Babylon! Not every church that says they are a church is of God; some are building the Babylon system and are clueless to it because if you asked them they are utterly convinced it is God! WE have to pray that their eyes are opened and they repent!
We will get into this more in the next note regarding Babylon!
However, I want to close this note out so you can see how sneaky Leviathan is in speaking to your mind if you let him. I had people come up to me and tell me God said something and I will tell you truly that the “THOUGHT” had entered my head the day before. However, after I learned later how leviathan was working against me then I found out that leviathan sent that thought to my head and leviathan was sending me messages the whole time and I did not have enough discernment to realize it was leviathan speaking to me and not Holy Spirit. Moreover, leviathan was speaking to three or four other people at the same time telling them the same thing he told me and when we all talked with each other we thought it was God speaking to us and it was not but rather the spirit of leviathan!!!!!
Now imagine this…………………………. How can leviathan trick so many people that way, how can he get an entire Israelite army utterly afraid of a giant forgetting the miracles God performed? How can this happen unless there is a door way, a foothold, by which he could wriggle his way into their soul selling them the lie hook, line and sinker! That is right, there is an area by which God has not been made Lord of their life and they have a root of bitterness somewhere in their life that allows pride, leviathan to pull on, to begin speak to them and tell them that God is short changing, holding out on them!!!! IT IS THE SAME LIE AS IN THE GARDEN!!!! Alright, when the enemy does this with a group, an entire ministry, leviathan in them will operate, unknowingly to them, to begin sending them messages and they believe it is Holy Spirit when Holy Spirit is not even speaking to them and rather it is satan and they do what the messages in their mind tell them and why not; they all have a “WITNESS” to the message because they all got the same message!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then how is the church, a ministry, a family, or a person given over not only in destroying the Body of Christ Jesus but building up satan’s system of Babylon? Well of course can you not see? Leviathan wants more drones to control using mind control as with the movie The Avengers and he begins to allow wounds to come against them, fresh ones possibly even by that group of people to pull his way into their soul by leviathan and get that person submitted to the same plan and it is one big group of wounded people who believe they are healed and they hear God when they are wounded, tearing the Body of Christ Jesus and get this ………………. they are building the Babylon System!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the church!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is no power of the Word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They merely use His Name but deny the Power of the Word, the Truth, Jesus and God is not moving. It becomes a huge waterway in which leviathan swims back and forth lording over his subjects, why it is Baal. The Baal structure has now set up and established Babylon.
Why do you think our nation is in the condition it is in? We the church have allowed Babylon to build up in this nation America because we are more sold on Babylon than we are Christ Jesus! We would rather make a buck prostituting the Gospel of Christ Jesus than laying our lives down for the Gospel of Christ Jesus!!!! We then get in error and help Babylon build her system while God is crying out with Holy Spirit with Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHO CAN I SEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO WILL GO FOR US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ISAIAH EXPERIENCED THIS SAME THING DURING HIS TIME WHEN PRIDE WAS RAMPANT AS EXPRESSED IN KING UZZIAH WHO WAS IN PRIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ISRAEL HAD LOST HER FOCUS AND ALLOWED THE CAPTIVITY OF GOD’S PEOPLE TO BE CAPTIVE IN THE BABYLON SYSTEM!!!!!!!! GOD ASKED ISAIAH IN THIS TIME OF DARKNESS WHO WILL GO FOR US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????
In the year that King Uzziah died, [in a vision] I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and the skirts of His train filled the [most holy part of the] temple.2 Above Him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two [each] covered his [own] face, and with two [each] covered his feet, and with two [each] flew.3 And one cried to another and said, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.5 Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone and ruined, because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!6 Then flew one of the seraphim [heavenly beings] to me, having a live coal in his hand which he had taken with tongs from off the altar;7 And with it he touched my mouth and said, Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity and guilt are taken away, and your sin is completely atoned for and forgiven.8 ALSO I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD, SAYING, WHOM SHALL I SEND? AND WHO WILL GO FOR US? THEN SAID I, HERE AM I; SEND ME. Isaiah 6:1-8.
GOD SENDS US INTO THE DARKNESS TO BRING HIS GREAT LIGHT, CHRIST JESUS! WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD! A CITY SET ON A HILL THAT CANNOT BE HIDDEN!!!!!!
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14
After Job repented from the pride and self righteousness that had been in his heart he was able to see his sin and abhorred it. Moreover, Job was able to truly see God and know Him, as the spirit of wisdom and revelation opened up the eyes of his understanding to flood it with the light of Christ Jesus to know God! Then Job was doubly blessed; he received a double portion!!!!!
Then Job said to the Lord,
2 I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted.
3 [You said to me] Who is this that darkens and obscures counsel [by words] without knowledge? Therefore [I now see] I have [rashly] uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
4 [I had virtually said to You what You have said to me:] Hear, I beseech You, and I will speak; I will demand of You, and You declare to me.
5 I had heard of You [only] by the hearing of the ear, but now my [spiritual] eye sees You.
6 Therefore I loathe [my words] and abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.
7 After the Lord had spoken the previous words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me the thing that is right, as My servant Job has.
8 Now therefore take seven bullocks and seven rams and go to My servant Job and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept [his prayer] that I deal not with you after your folly, in that you have not spoken of Me the thing that is right, as My servant Job has.
9 So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the Lord commanded them; and the Lord accepted [Job’s prayer].
10 And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11 Then there came to him all his brothers and sisters and all who had known him before, and they ate bread with him in his house; and they sympathized with him and comforted him over all the [distressing] calamities that the Lord had brought upon him. Every man also gave him a piece of money, and every man an earring of gold.
12 And the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yoke of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.
13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.
14 And he called the name of the first Jemimah, and the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-happuch.
15 And in all the land there were no women so fair as the daughters of Job, and their father gave them inheritance among their brothers.
16 After this, Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons and his sons’ sons, even to four generations.
17 So Job died, an old man and full of days. Job 42:1-17 Amp

PART 3 PULLING DOWN THE CURSED STRUCTURE OF PRIDE OPERATING IN LEVIATHAN
By: Robin Kirby-Gatto
On Pentecost Sunday Holy Spirit had me preach a message I was not prepared to preach. He titled the message “The Mantle of Jesus,” as was mentioned in the first note of this series. The Holy Spirit showed me the weekend prior to Pentecost that Jesus’ Mantle is for the Bride of Christ Jesus to be built up into the maturity of the unity of the faith in Christ Jesus. He distributed gifts to men, the church regarding the fivefold ministry, for the perfecting and full equipping of the saints into full maturity of the growing into unity in the faith of Christ Jesus!
I therefore, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to and beg you to walk (lead a life) worthy of the [divine] calling to which you have been called [with behavior that is a credit to the summons to God’s service,2 Living as becomes you] with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another.3 Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace.4 [THERE IS] ONE BODY AND ONE SPIRIT—JUST AS THERE IS ALSO ONE HOPE [THAT BELONGS] TO THE CALLING YOU RECEIVED—5 [THERE IS] ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM,6 ONE GOD AND FATHER OF [US] ALL, WHO IS ABOVE ALL [SOVEREIGN OVER ALL], PERVADING ALL AND [LIVING] IN [US] ALL.7 Yet grace (God’s unmerited favor) was given to each of us individually [not indiscriminately, but in different ways] in proportion to the measure of Christ’s [rich and bounteous] gift.8 Therefore it is said, When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive [He led a train of vanquished foes] and He bestowed gifts on men.9 [But He ascended?] Now what can this, He ascended, mean but that He had previously descended from [the heights of] heaven into [the depths], the lower parts of the earth?10 He Who descended is the [very] same as He Who also has ascended high above all the heavens, that He [His presence] might fill all things (the whole universe, from the lowest to the highest).11 AND HIS GIFTS WERE [VARIED; HE HIMSELF APPOINTED AND GAVE MEN TO US] SOME TO BE APOSTLES (SPECIAL MESSENGERS), SOME PROPHETS (INSPIRED PREACHERS AND EXPOUNDERS), SOME EVANGELISTS (PREACHERS OF THE GOSPEL, TRAVELING MISSIONARIES), SOME PASTORS (SHEPHERDS OF HIS FLOCK) AND TEACHERS.12 HIS INTENTION WAS THE PERFECTING AND THE FULL EQUIPPING OF THE SAINTS (HIS CONSECRATED PEOPLE), [THAT THEY SHOULD DO] THE WORK OF MINISTERING TOWARD BUILDING UP CHRIST’S BODY (THE CHURCH),13 [THAT IT MIGHT DEVELOP] UNTIL WE ALL ATTAIN ONENESS IN THE FAITH AND IN THE COMPREHENSION OF THE [FULL AND ACCURATE] KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF GOD, THAT [WE MIGHT ARRIVE] AT REALLY MATURE MANHOOD (THE COMPLETENESS OF PERSONALITY WHICH IS NOTHING LESS THAN THE STANDARD HEIGHT OF CHRIST’S OWN PERFECTION), THE MEASURE OF THE STATURE OF THE FULLNESS OF THE CHRIST AND THE COMPLETENESS FOUND IN HIM. Ephesians 4:1-13.
Holy Spirit showed me that the enemy through the Leviathan spirit brings division to the BODY of Christ Jesus so that we never grow into full maturity in obtaining the Unity of the Faith in Christ Jesus. Therefore, we are easily overcome as a result of continually being divided. God in this hour is exposing the attack of leviathan and how it has constantly hit the Church in order to keep us divided. The Spirit of God had me in utter travail before I preached this message showing me things in my own heart, in which I had not loved His Bride as He had purposed, to build her up in a greater measure and an accelerated pace. Our ministry, God’s Fire Wall and 22 IS 22 (Isaiah 22:22 Company) is designed by Holy Spirit to be an equipping ministry as in Ephesians 4 but has only had a small impact for God’s Kingdom. God showed me in this hour there is acceleration into building the Body of Christ Jesus for those ministries and ministers that would pick up His Mantle, the Mantle of continually building up the Body of Christ Jesus!
The Monday after Pentecost Rich and I celebrated Matthew’s birthday (my youngest son) by going to the movies. We chose to watch the Avengers and while I sat there and watched and the revelation of God’s message in this hour was emphasized even greater as it relates to the attack of leviathan coming against the Bride of Christ Jesus.
THE AVENGERS MOVIE
“The Asgardian Loki encounters the Other, the leader of an alien race known as the Chitauri. In exchange for retrieving the Tesseract,2 a powerful energy source of unknown potential, the Other promises Loki a Chitauri army with which he can subjugate the Earth. Nick Fury, director of the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D., and his lieutenant Agent Maria Hill arrive at a remote research facility during an evacuation, where physicist Dr. Erik Selvig is leading a research team experimenting on the Tesseract. Agent Phil Coulson explains that the object has begun radiating an unusual form of energy. The Tesseract suddenly activates and opens a portal, allowing Loki to reach Earth. Loki takes the Tesseract and uses his scepter to enslave Selvig and several agents, including Clint Barton, to aid him in his getaway.
In response to the attack, Fury reactivates the “Avengers Initiative”. Agent Natasha Romanoff is sent to Calcutta, India to recruit Dr. Bruce Banner; Coulson visits Tony Stark to have him review Selvig’s research; Fury approaches Steve Rogers with an assignment to retrieve the Tesseract. While Barton steals iridium needed to stabilize the Tesseract’s power, Loki causes a distraction in Stuttgart, Germany, leading to a confrontation with Rogers, Stark, and Romanoff that ends with Loki’s surrender. While Loki is being escorted to S.H.I.E.L.D., Thor, his adoptive brother, arrives and frees him hoping to convince him to abandon his plan and return to Asgard. After a confrontation with Stark and Rogers, Thor agrees to take Loki to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s flying aircraft carrier, the Helicarrier. There Loki is imprisoned while scientists Banner and Stark attempt to locate the Tesseract.
The Avengers become divided, both over how to approach Loki and the revelation that S.H.I.E.L.D. plans to harness the Tesseract to develop weapons as a deterrent against hostile extra-terrestrials. As the group argues, Barton and Loki’s other possessed agents attack the Helicarrier, disabling its engines in flight and causing Banner to transform into the Hulk. Stark and Rogers try to restart the damaged engines, and Thor attempts to stop the Hulk’s rampage. Romanoff fights Barton, and knocks him unconscious, breaking Loki’s mind control. Loki escapes after killing Coulson and ejecting Thor from the airship, while the Hulk falls to the ground after attacking a S.H.I.E.L.D. fighter jet. Fury uses Coulson’s death to motivate the Avengers into working as a team. Stark and Rogers realize that simply defeating them will not be enough for Loki; he needs to overpower them publicly to validate himself as ruler of Earth. Loki uses the Tesseract, in conjunction with a device Selvig built, to open a portal above Stark Tower to the Chitauri fleet in space, launching his invasion.
The Avengers rally in defense of New York City, but quickly realize they will be overwhelmed as wave after wave of Chitauri descend upon Earth. Rogers, Stark, and Thor evacuate civilians with assistance from Barton, while Banner transforms back into the Hulk and goes after Loki, eventually beating him into submission. Romanoff makes her way to the portal, where Selvig, freed of Loki’s control, reveals that Loki’s scepter can be used to close the portal. Meanwhile, Fury’s superiors attempt to end the invasion by launching a nuclear missile at Manhattan. Stark intercepts the missile and takes it through the portal toward the Chitauri fleet. The missile detonates, destroying the invaders’ lead ship which disables their forces on Earth. Stark’s suit runs out of power and he falls back through the portal, but the Hulk saves him from crashing to the ground. Romanoff deactivates the portal to prevent further invasion. In the aftermath, Thor returns Loki and the Tesseract to Asgard. Fury notes that the Avengers will return when they are needed.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Avengers_%282012_film%29)
Loki in the Marvel Comics was first introduced to resemble the devil. “Loki made his first Marvel Comics appearance in Timely Comics’ publication Venus #6 (August 1949), where Loki was depicted as a member of the Olympian gods exiled to the Underworld, and here resembled the traditional image of the Devil.” (http://en.wikipedia.org
/wiki/Loki_%28comics%29). Loki was cast out of Asgard where he was adopted by Odin to be a part of their world when he was young. However, later Loki’s heart continued to be resentful and jealous of Thor, the true son of Odin. As a result Loki’s actions caused him to be exiled from Asgard . Here now in The Avengers Loki is communicating with the Other, who is the leader of a race called the Chitauri, in order that he could come to earth and take it captive. Loki’s initial entry to earth results in him taking an energy force, tesseract, that he is to collect for The Other. In his collection of the tesseract Loki takes into captivity humans (physicist Dr. Erik Selvig and Clint Barton) that are able to assist him in his plot. He touches his scepter that has the same energy force of that of the tesseract to the hearts of those he takes captive. The energy causes the human’s eyes to turn black and then crystal blue with a film of scales over their eyes. It is as though they are under mind control when Loki touches their hearts with the scepter.
Nick Fury hears of Loki’s plans and begins to gather a team of elite super heroes who have the capability of ending the threat against the earth. The superheroes Fury gets is Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and the Black Widow. Loki intends to get caught and taken in by Fury through a public disruption and criminal acts in the earth and is brought into the ship and placed in a holding tank and his scepter is taken to the laboratory for further study to find the other tesseract used to open the portal for The Other and his minions. Fury’s assistant is Maria Hill who assists him in implementing his plan for The Avengers. Initially, when the superheroes meet there is division between them and the more they get involved in the energy force of Loki’s scepter which is near them in the laboratory, it causes them to have even more pride thinking more highly of themselves individually than they should. As a result division amplifies in the movie until it looks as though the earth’s destruction is imminent. At the moment of the earth’s greatest conflict of soon destruction the team of superheroes put aside their differences to save the earth and end up saving it from the intended destruction, closing the portal to darkness. Moreover, the creature that comes out of the portal looks like the leviathan creature of sorts and has massive steal scales all over its exterior. Therefore, the portal that Loki had opened allowed leviathan to enter the earth. The portal was opened as a result of pride, which is where the leviathan spirit is able to manifest and attack us spiritually.
Nick means “victory of the people” also fury means “unrestrained violent anger” which demonstrates that God gives us victory over the enemy that seeks to bring an unrestrained violent anger against God’s people.
11 Vow and pay to the Lord your God; let all who are round about Him bring presents to Him Who ought to be [reverently] feared.12 HE WILL CUT OFF THE SPIRIT [OF PRIDE AND FURY] OF PRINCES; He is terrible to the [ungodly] kings of the earth. Psalm 76:11-12.
Maria means “sea of bitterness/sorrow” and her last name Hill means an elevation of land. Therefore, here we see that God shows us in our soul that pride is exposed in areas in which we have bitterness and sorrow that tends to exalt itself above the truth, areas in which what we want is not happening (sounds like what happened with satan in heaven; he wanted to be ruler and was not). In the movie Maria even questions Nick Fury’s orders, trying to exalt her own opinion of what needs to be done above her superior. God showed me that in our lives as we will see in a greater measure through scripture that the enemy works in our rebellion against God. In addition, satan works in areas where we still have wounds operating in which there is unresolved bitterness or sorrow; pride springs up in our soul as a result. Moreover, Loki and Thor in the movie represent the angelic host, Loki representing the devil and Thor representing that of Michael; here you have to put aside the name for namesake in what is being displayed as it relates to pride. Thor in the movie the Avengers is who protects the earth from Loki, and we know that Michael the Arc Angel protects God’s people from the attacks of satan and his demonic host. (I already know that some people are going to be appalled because of Thor representing something demonic. However, here I am not looking at evil as it relates to Thor but rather the connotation of God’s voice as the voice of Thunder that delivers justice and Michael fight’s on behalf of God).
Captain America’s name in character Steve Rogers, Steve means crown of splendor and Rogers means in this sense, “I understand, or I have received full transmission” as it relates to the military usage of “roger.” Holy Spirit showed me that we are to run with our crown and not let anyone take our crown from us, and we do so when we come into full understanding of what we are to do, receiving God’s instructions. (Revelation 3:7-12). The Black Widow’s name, Natasha Romanoff, has the meaning birthday of superior family; Natasha means birthday and Romanoff is the lineage of a superior family. The Incredible Hulk’s name is Bruce Banner, meaning from the brushwood, and Banner meaning an official proclamation likened unto a flag. Next, Iron Man’s name is Tony Stark, meaning “highly praiseworthy perfect/complete” indicating God is the One Whom we give all honor and glory. Finally, Clint Burton means “fenced settlement, fortified settlement.”
Therefore, the given perspective at which I have been allowed to see this, it is prophetic of the time in which we are at presently. Loki here, represents the devil has come to earth to unleash havoc through the attack against man’s soul by bringing forth the iniquity of pride through which he is capable of manifesting in us in rebellion, jealousy, rejection, anger, and unhealed areas where there is still bitterness or sorrow elevated in our soul over the truth, God’s Word. However, God is able to bring us victory over pride/fury. God exposes those areas in order that He can birth His truth, superior Word into our souls to appropriate that truth because only God is worthy to be praised; He makes everything perfect and complete. As we understand God’s truth and appropriate the truth through the Word, Jesus, we then are able to grab a hold of that truth (crown of splendor) and see God’s Name Glorified in our lives, making us a fortified city, an iron pillar!
Oh, that You would rend the heavens and that You would come down, that the mountains might quake and flow down at Your presence—2 AS WHEN FIRE KINDLES THE BRUSHWOOD AND THE FIRE CAUSES THE WATERS TO BOIL—TO MAKE YOUR NAME KNOWN TO YOUR ADVERSARIES, THAT THE NATIONS MAY TREMBLE AT YOUR PRESENCE! 3 When You did terrible things which we did not expect, You came down; the mountains quaked at Your presence. Isaiah 64:1-3.
As we take every thought captive that would exalt itself against the truth of God’s Word, we are able to see His Name exalted as when a fire kindles the brushwood it makes God’s Name known to his adversaries, causing the nations to fear Him reverently. This greatness of God’s Name to His adversaries is displayed in our heart, our soul, so that the enemy is no longer able to keep us in bondage but rather we walk in greater freedom and liberty in our soul. God then brings healing and deliverance. The Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff was constantly trying to defend herself because she could not forget the reproach of her past. However, God removes the reproach of our widowhood where we feel that there is sin and we remember it no longer. Isaiah 54:4.
4 Fear not, for you shall not be ashamed; neither be confounded and depressed, for you shall not be put to shame. For you shall forget the shame of your youth, and you shall not [seriously] remember the reproach of your widowhood any more. Isaiah 54:4
Hannah in 1 Samuel 1 pours out her bitter complaint to the Lord God and unveils her soul in order that it would not stay rooted in her soul and God heard her. Many people do not realize God hears you and already knows what is in our soul but we have to come to God to get it out and let Him do a work to manifest His promises and remove all bitterness out of our soul. Job’s bitter complaint though was not to empty out his heart and turn to God but rather to put his fist in God’s face about God causing all that has happened to Job.
I am weary of my life and loathe it! I will give free expression to my complaint; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.2 I will say to God, Do not condemn me [do not make me guilty]! Show me why You contend with me.3 Does it seem good to You that You should oppress, that You should despise and reject the work of Your hands, and favor the schemes of the wicked? Job 10:1-3.
Here specifically we will look at pride resulting from bitterness due to shame and guilt for past wounds ultimately linked to unforgiveness. (However, when repenting of pride ask Holy Spirit to expose what is the root source of the pride, is it rebellion, is it rejection, is it jealousy, is it unhealed wounds or is it unforgiveness).
It is through shame and guilt the enemy is able to keep us in bitterness and sorrow as we do not release those who have hurt us and as we come against the plan of God thinking we are above His plan. Each one of these superheroes were under the power of pride until they were able to dismiss the reproach against them, what would cause them shame and rise above their past pressing forward into becoming “one,” going against the attack of pride to cause division. The shame and guilt for Bruce Banner was that his anger became ungodly and as a result he sinned in his anger. However, once he released the shame of that he used his anger towards righteous anger so to speak in destroying the enemy as David did with Goliath.
Once the Avengers were able to overcome pride in them that was stirred up by the enemy, Loki due to the power force of his scepter being close by them, causing pride to manifest, they were then able to come together as ONE and demonstrated a working together of unity. We are to be One Body in Christ Jesus and are to allow the fivefold ministry to rise up, equipping and building the Body of Christ Jesus.
They were able to get Clint Burton who was captive under Loki’s spell and could not see due to the scales over his eyes and his mind was controlled by Loki. Likewise, satan controls our mind as we yield to evil thoughts. Natasha was able to battle the spirit operating against Clint, it was not Clint she was fighting but the evil force in him that had him bondage. After she battled the force hitting him he was released from the mind control and came into position with the others to protect the earth. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities in the heavenly realm. The five of them, Natasha, Tony, Steve, Dr. Bruce, and Clint came together and worked as a team with Thor, to end the attack against earth and save it from utter destruction. They were able to close the portal in the heavenly realm and destroy the enemy, turning around what was meant for their destruction, the missile and putting it in the hole to destroy the enemy. The team was able to Avenge Earth; they are The Avengers of the earth. Likewise there is an anointing by God to bring forth His vengeance against the enemy to set us free!
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,2 TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD [THE YEAR OF HIS FAVOR] AND THE DAY OF VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD, TO COMFORT ALL WHO MOURN, 3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.4 And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. Isaiah 61:1-4.
RISING ABOVE SHAME AND GUILT
Pride can take root in our soul due to us wanting our will above God’s will, which is what we saw with satan. Therefore, pure rebellion, not following the will of the Lord causes pride to rise up in us. However, here we are discussing rebellion that results due to unhealed wounds in our soul and unforgiveness. Other means in which pride rises up within our heart are jealousy, fear, rejection and anxiety. We see as with Cain pride rose up in him because he first wanted to offer a sacrifice to the Lord God his way. After Cain sees that his brother sacrifice is received and his is not, Cain then becomes jealous and murders his brother. Therefore pride can enter us through rebellion and jealousy. In addition, as we see with Cain, pride can come due to feeling rejected, stirring up comparison to that which is attached to God, stirring up jealousy. Pride is a mechanism whereby we protect our own world, our own will, by what we see that it should be. As a result, rejection, rebellion, jealousy, fear, anxiety and unforgiveness are avenues by which Pride takes root and manifest. Here we will mainly be discussing unforgiveness and unhealed wounds.
3 And in the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground.4 And Abel brought of the firstborn of his flock and of the fat portions. And the Lord had respect and regard for Abel and for his offering,5 But for Cain and his offering He had no respect or regard. So Cain was exceedingly angry and indignant, and he looked sad and depressed.6 And the Lord said to Cain, Why are you angry? And why do you look sad and depressed and dejected?7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.8 And Cain said to his brother, Let us go out to the field. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. Genesis 4:3-8.
When we stay under the reproach of shame and guilt from the enemy, through unforgiveness or unhealed wounds, we think of ourselves more highly than we should and we also look at God with contempt. Even low self esteem is pride; it says that God cannot heal us and we are so much higher than God that it is us that have to heal ourselves. As a result we think of ourselves more righteous than we truly our; we are looking through our righteousness which is filthy rags and not that of Christ Jesus. God has to by His Holy Spirit bring healing into our heart for us to forgive others and ourselves so that the reproach can be removed!
FORGIVENESS AND UNHEALED WOUNDS!
(Also links will be below on the “Attack of the Worm” which gets into detail about bitterness and unforgiveness)
We can only be forgiven as we have forgiven others; we are given over to the torturer of our soul when we do not forgive; Pride operates through unforgiveness! Unforgivness in any area of our life, tells us we cannot trust God and have to take care of ourselves or be our own self sufficiency, therefore we deny God’s work in our lives. Pride when it manifest looks the opposite of what we would think because we think the person thinks to highly of themselves which is true, due to unforgiveness. Moreover, wounds can result from areas in which we have unforgiveness leaving us injured by another. The wound and unforgiveness allows the torment of the enemy of our soul to come against us, causing us to rise up and usurp God’s authority as Provider, as Healer, as Deliverer, as Protector, and all that the work of Salvation encompasses. Therefore, unknowingly our soul is in torment and we begin to lord ourselves over others looking perversely at others out of our own heart, putting evil on them because we are being tormented in our own heart by satan.
21 Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? [As many as] up to seven times? 22 Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven! 23 Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a human king who wished to settle accounts with his attendants. 24 When he began the accounting, one was brought to him who owed him 10,000 talents [probably about $10,000,000], 25 And because he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and his children and everything that he possessed, and payment to be made. 26 So the attendant fell on his knees, begging him, Have patience with me and I will pay you everything. 27 And his master’s heart was moved with compassion, and he released him and forgave him [cancelling] the debt. 28 But that same attendant, as he went out, found one of his fellow attendants who owed him a hundred denarii [about twenty dollars]; and he caught him by the throat and said, Pay what you owe!29 So his fellow attendant fell down and begged him earnestly, Give me time, and I will pay you all!30 But he was unwilling, and he went out and had him put in prison till he should pay the debt.31 When his fellow attendants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and told everything that had taken place to their master.32 Then his master called him and said to him, You contemptible and wicked attendant! I forgave and cancelled all that [great] debt of yours because you begged me to.33 And should you not have had pity and mercy on your fellow attendant, as I had pity and mercy on you? 34 And in wrath his master turned him over to the torturers (the jailers), till he should pay all that he owed.35 So also My heavenly Father will deal with every one of you if you do not freely forgive your brother from your heart his offenses. Matthew 18:20-35 Amp
Pride is exposed through circumstances in which we have been injured by others that would cause us to be unforgiving. However, we do not know the need of forgiveness if we have scales on our eyes, if we are blind as when Clint Burton was blinded by Loki. The reason that Loki’s energy force had power over Clint was because there was a means by which he could pull on that which Clint needed, he needed “peace.” Loki when he touched human hearts with his scepter would say “receive true peace.” Likewise the enemy gives us a false peace which is “pride” when we do not forgive and causes a stirring within us where now unforgiveness has now become pride and then allows the operation of the spirit of leviathan in our hearts to oppress us and now we become a vessel given over to the operation of that spirit against others.
The unforgiveness is rooted deeper than the circumstance in which you have offense,and is exposed in times when offense rises up. For example, let us say that someone has had a child die in a car wreck, a loved one die from cancer or a divorce in the family causing a broken home. A person can because of the circumstances become offended with God, thinking they are better, and hold God in contempt for something He did not cause. Then later the unforgiveness one might feel is manifested later as self righteousness and the person becomes stiff necked, rigid, because of pride and thinks they are above others and moreover, when the true anointing shows up like David killing Goliath to protect Israel an Eliab is there to say that David has presumption and an evil heart when in truth it is Eliab that does. Moreover, pride rooted in one person can pull on pride in others to cause them to agree with the lie and then you have leviathan operating in the group rising up against the true anointing and the enemy wants God’s people to stay in captivity. Why did no other warrior for Israel’s army defend God’s army from the torment of Goliath until David came? They were all in torment and bondage to the enemy! The reason is because of pride in all of them, created a false humility, in which fear bred and caused the terror and torment that was already within their soul to manifest into fear! This would take an entire book to write. Therefore, instead of building pride causes us to tear down God’s work or be paralyzed to that work. The true anointing of Christ Jesus, builds up the Bride of Christ Jesus! Therefore, Eliab coming against David demonstrates the attack of pride to attack those who are in God’s Body Building Work of Ephesians 4!
God had me start God’s Fire Wall School of Healing of the Soul in order to deal with issues uprooting the enemy’s lie out of our soul and implanting and building up God’s Kingdom in our soul so that we are healed and delivered able to do the work of the Lord in our lives. When we do the work of the Lord it will build up the Body of Christ Jesus into a full maturity of the faith! This is demonstrated clearly in Isaiah 54 where before the barren woman was in reproach, feeling forsaken the Lord came and removed it fully, bringing her to Himself where He is her Husband, her Maker and causes her to rise up having many spiritual children who would in turn rise up and rebuild the desolate places, causing them to be inhabited.
Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child! For the [spiritual] children of the desolate one will be more than the children of the married wife, says the Lord.2 Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes,3 For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.4 FEAR NOT, FOR YOU SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED; NEITHER BE CONFOUNDED AND DEPRESSED, FOR YOU SHALL NOT BE PUT TO SHAME. FOR YOU SHALL FORGET THE SHAME OF YOUR YOUTH, AND YOU SHALL NOT [SERIOUSLY] REMEMBER THE REPROACH OF YOUR WIDOWHOOD ANY MORE.5 For your Maker is your Husband—the Lord of hosts is His name—and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole earth He is called.6 For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken, grieved in spirit, and heartsore—even a wife [wooed and won] in youth, when she is [later] refused and scorned, says your God.7 For a brief moment I forsook you, but with great compassion and mercy I will gather you [to Me] again.8 In a little burst of wrath I hid My face from you for a moment, but with age-enduring love and kindness I will have compassion and mercy on you, says the Lord, your Redeemer.9 For this is like the days of Noah to Me; as I swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you or rebuke you.10 For though the mountains should depart and the hills be shaken or removed, yet My love and kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace and completeness be removed, says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.11 O you afflicted [city], storm-tossed and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in fair colors [in antimony to enhance their brilliance] and lay your foundations with sapphires.12 And I will make your windows and pinnacles of [sparkling] agates or rubies, and your gates of [shining] carbuncles, and all your walls [of your enclosures] of precious stones.13 And all your [spiritual] children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children.14 You shall establish yourself in righteousness (rightness, in conformity with God’s will and order): you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near you.15 Behold, they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you.16 Behold, I have created the smith who blows on the fire of coals and who produces a weapon for its purpose; and I have created the devastator to destroy.17 But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord. Isaiah 54:1-17.
In receiving the work of the Cross of Christ Jesus fully in our soul, no shame has portion to cause us to feel forsaken, creating a root of unforgiveness thereby causing us to be disturbed and rise up in pride allowing evil in our heart. We see this exposed in Job when he is afflicted with the trials and tribulations in which he was allowed to go through, not because God did it to Job but because satan tormented Job and afflicted him.
JOB’S AFFLICTION BEGINS TO EXPOSE PRIDE
God brags about Job to satan as he is before the Lord and satan states that Job only fears God because of the blessings of God upon Job. God gives satan permission to touch Job to a measure, leaving his life. Job then finds out he has lost his children to destruction, his wealth, his health, and his wife is telling him to curse God. Prior to Job 3 God’s word states Job did not sin with his lips. Then when we get to Job 3 we see something exposed through his lips as it relates to leviathan.
After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed his day (birthday). 2 And Job said, 3 Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night which announced, There is a man-child conceived. 4 Let that day be darkness! May not God above regard it, nor light shine upon it. 5 Let gloom and deep darkness claim it for their own; let a cloud dwell upon it; let all that blackens the day terrify it (the day that I was born). 6 As for that night, let thick darkness seize it; let it not rejoice among the days of the year; let it not come into the number of the months. 7 Yes, let that night be solitary and barren; let no joyful voice come into it. 8 LET THOSE CURSE IT WHO CURSE THE DAY, WHO ARE SKILLED IN ROUSING UP LEVIATHAN. 9 Let the stars of the early dawn of that day be dark; let [the morning] look in vain for the light, nor let it behold the day’s dawning, 10 Because it shut not the doors of my mother’s womb nor hid sorrow and trouble from my eyes. 11 Why was I not stillborn? Why did I not give up the ghost when my mother bore me? 12 Why did the knees receive me? Or why the breasts, that I should suck? 13 For then would I have lain down and been quiet; I would have slept; then would I have been at rest [in death] 14 With kings and counselors of the earth, who built up [now] desolate ruins for themselves, 15 Or with princes who had gold, who filled their houses with silver. 16 Or [why] was I not a miscarriage, hidden and put away, as infants who never saw light? 17 There [in death] the wicked cease from troubling, and there the weary are at rest.18 There the [captive] prisoners rest together; they hear not the taskmaster’s voice.19 The small and the great are there, and the servant is free from his master.20 Why is light [of life] given to him who is in misery, and life to the bitter in soul,21 Who long and wait for death, but it comes not, and dig for it more than for hidden treasures,22 Who rejoice exceedingly and are elated when they find the grave?23 [Why is the light of day given] to a man whose way is hidden, and whom God has hedged in?24 For my sighing comes before my food, and my groanings are poured out like water.25 For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, and that of which I am afraid befalls me.26 I was not or am not at ease, nor had I or have I rest, nor was I or am I quiet, yet trouble came and still comes [upon me]. Job 3:1-26
It is the “curse” that rouses leviathan in Job 3:8! Therefore, it is when we in our heart have curses, evil, present that we begin to speak out of our heart that which is in it that rouses up leviathan. Job starts cursing his birth and being created in the image of God, fearfully and wonderfully made, Job began cursing his own birth, therefore rousing leviathan, pride within his own soul. Now pride was already resident in Job’s soul before the attack of satan, the attack merely revealed it. How do we know this? Prior we see it in Job 10:1-3 and in verse 25 of Job 3 we see Job confess “for the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, and that of which I am afraid befalls me.” Job’s own fear is revealed, it has been made manifest and Job has lost everything. This fear resident in Job was made manifest through satan’s attack causing Job to be unsettled stirring up Leviathan.
Holy Spirit had me teach on the entire book of Ephesians on Pentecost Sunday, displaying God’s desire for there to be One Body that comes together for the perfecting and full equipping of the Saints in the Faith of Christ Jesus so that we can show His complicated wisdom to the angelic rulers and powers in the heavenly realm!!!!!!! When we become One Body, we can destroy the attack of Leviathan coming against the Church! This is what happened in the movie The Avengers, that they came together as a team, as one and as a result were able to come against ruling powers in the heavenly realm!!!!!
It is in Ephesians 6 that we see the Word of God telling us to stand fully suited in the Armor of God. This is what happens when the Body of Christ Jesus comes together we are able to withstand the attacks of the enemy!
10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.
12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].
14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of [c]saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.
18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people). Ephesians 6:10-18 Amp
PRIDE IS THE CURSED STRUCTURE BECAUSE IT CURSES THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD!!!!!!
Part 4 to be continued…………
The three notes on the Attack of the Worm
By: Robin Kirby-Gatto
Leviathan in Hebrew is livyâthân meaning “a wreathed animal, serpent, the crocodile or some other large sea monster, the constellation of the dragon; also a symbol of Babylon.” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3882). The root word of leviathan is lâvâh which means “to twine, to unite, to remain, also to borrow (as in the form of obligation) to lend, abide with, cleave, join (self).” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3867). This root word of leviathan is the same root word for “Levi” that is Lêvîy a son of Jacob, the tribe which was chosen to serve God’s HOUSE, to serve Aaron the Priest. (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word #3878). Levi in Hebrew means “attached” and comes from the root word lâvâh.
See the enemy is still the same! The enemy has always wanted to take God’s place; he believes in some evil warped pride that he is to be worshipped above all and HE IS NOT! The enemy lost in heaven with God and was flung out of the third heaven and came to earth taking the form of the serpent in the Garden of Eden to see if he could come against the Image of God, Elohim, in man by taking our authority and becoming prince of this world.
31 Now the judgment (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world]. Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world shall be cast out (expelled). 32 And I, if and when I am lifted up from the earth [on the cross], will draw and attract all men [Gentiles as well as Jews] to Myself. John 12:31-32
I will not talk with you much more, for the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.] John 14:20
About judgment, because the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world [Satan] is judged and condemned and sentence already is passed upon him. John 16:11
In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God]. Ephesians 2:2
The enemy still wants to continue to rip apart the image of God, Elohim (God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit) in which man was created (Genesis 1:27). We being in Christ Jesus now are to walk in the divine expressed image of God as seen in Colossians 2:9-10.
9 For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature].10 And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. Colossians 2:9-10.
Likewise, the Levites were spoken of the Lord God to be His in Numbers 3. The levities were to be attached to, united, joined with God!
12 Behold, I have taken the Levites from among the Israelites instead of every firstborn who opens the womb among the Israelites; and the Levites shall be Mine, Numbers 3:12.
The Levites were taken from among Israel after God had brought Israel out of Egypt and were considered to be set apart by God, to serve Him. And the name of Levi comes from the same root word of Leviathan Holy Spirit showed me the enemy, satan, and how as satan was created by God however, his pride caused him to think he could usurp God’s authority and be over God. As a result a third of the angelic host followed him. Lucifer was actually closer to God than many of the other angelic host and in that closeness he still thought he could usurp God not because he was less spiritual though.
12 How have you fallen from heaven, O light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations [O blasphemous, satanic king of Babylon!]13 And you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit upon the mount of assembly in the uttermost north.14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. Isaiah 17:12-14.
Here the word describes Lucifer as wanting to make himself “like the Most High God.” The purpose of Lucifer’s fall was because he said in his “heart” that he was going to ascend and be like God. He wanted God’s position, God’s throne. As a result his heart was exposed and cast down from his place in the heavenly places. Before satan had fallen he was close to God and had been attached and united with God and God’s Kingdom. However, somewhere in that attachment he began saying in his heart that he wanted to be “like the Most High.” It was that attachment that relationship that he became too familiar with the Most High God and began to treat Him as common to him (Lucifer). Lucifer wanted to start building his own kingdom, his agenda, his plans detaching from God’s Kingdom, God’s plan and purposes. Lucifer wanted to worship himself and for others to worship him, too.
Likewise there is a line in which only God’s grace and mercy in us by His Holy Spirit in us can keep us in the straight and narrow way by the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord we stay attached in building God’s Kingdom, worshipping Him, being in reverence and awe of God Almighty! Considering and treating God as Holy and to be reverenced. The prophecy of Jesus being from the lineage of Judah through Jesse in Isaiah 11:1-4 indicates that Jesus would delight in the Fear of the Lord and the purpose of the Fear of the Lord is that we might reverence and worship God in true reverence, keeping us from sin that would try and rise up against us. The Fear of the Lord keeps us from sin, from evil! Therefore, likewise the enemy knowing the truth of this downfall that is possible of having pride rise up in those not further from God, but those closest to God entered the Garden and played the same card that he fell for in heaven! He played the card “you will be like God.”
4 But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die, 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate. Genesis 3:4-6
The serpent told Eve she would “be like God” because he knew the words in which would stir up something that was within Eve to be stirred up to cause her to do something that one would never think of and have pride rise up and covet the very throne of God. The enemy’s lie was talking to Eve and she had given her ear to hear the lie and understand it. As a result ate the fruit in which God clearly said they were not to eat of. Listening to the lies of the enemy had the woman desire that which she was not to partake. She found it delightful to look at and desired to eat of it.
Therefore, satan knowing that he would go to that which was “attached to God, unified with God, joined with God” in order to stir up pride within the vessel and cause an ungodly root of coveting that which is not ours to have did so in Eve. Lucifer brought division between God and man through the same sin in which he himself was caught in because he knew it would work. Pride is more pronounced to manifest in us the closer we are to God, which is why the closer we are the more the flesh has to be crucified! .
Lucifer before he was cast out of heaven was beautifully adorned and walked on the Holy Mountain of God near to Him to worship Him. Iniquity was found in him and it was all as a result of pride. Pride came as a result of Lucifer’s heart being lifted up because of his beauty, Lucifer corrupted the wisdom of God for his own sake, his own glory and as a result was cast out of the Holy Mountain of God.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the carnelian, topaz, jasper, chrysolite, beryl, onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and emerald; and your settings and your sockets and engravings were wrought in gold. On the day that you were created they were prepared. 14 You were the anointed cherub that covers with overshadowing [wings], and I set you so. You were upon the holy mountain of God; you walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire [like the paved work of gleaming sapphire stone upon which the God of Israel walked on Mount Sinai]. 15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until iniquity and guilt were found in you.16 Through the abundance of your commerce you were filled with lawlessness and violence, and you sinned; therefore I cast you out as a profane thing from the mountain of God and the guardian cherub drove you out from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Your heart was proud and lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I lay you before kings, that they might gaze at you. Ezekiel 28:12-17
Lucifer wanted his will, his kingdom, his way and it was all about him! Jesus came to do the Will of the Father!
I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), BECAUSE I DO NOT SEEK OR CONSULT MY OWN WILL [I HAVE NO DESIRE TO DO WHAT IS PLEASING TO MYSELF, MY OWN AIM, MY OWN PURPOSE] BUT ONLY THE WILL AND PLEASURE OF THE FATHER WHO SENT ME. John 5:30.
Likewise we are called to do the will of the Father.
For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother! Matthew 12:50.
LEVIATHAN IN THE CHURCH
Leviathan in pride enters us and the church when we allow our will to usurp the will of the Father. The dream God had given me many years ago during a time in which the attack of Leviathan would hit me and was hitting the Bride of Christ Jesus all over the earth and I didn’t understand it at the time I had the dream because it seems as though it is so full of symbolism that does not make sense. However, when Holy Spirit showed me yesterday the attack of leviathan in and against us God revealed the revelation of the dream.
Dream: I was in a church and the church was built as a barn type structure and a hall ran down the middle of the barn. On the left side was a Sunday school room and when I went in is was not a pure white room but an ivory white room with chairs sat up in it and in the classroom Holy Spirit said to me this is not pure but appears pure leave. I get up out of the Sunday school room only to go across the hall to the sanctuary that is constructed like a theater concert hall setting and is totally black as you would see in a movie theater. I walk in and God instructed me that it was based on entertainment, lifting up man’s agenda, and creating an atmosphere of performance and instructed me to leave. I got up and walked down the hall and went to the left side at the end of the hall at the opposite end and there was a tiny old bathroom that had a small shower and sink to use. I walked in and saw a couple (who now are divorced) and they were getting out of the shower with their clothes on and acted as if they took a shower, leaving the bathroom. I looked and the mirror was covered with all this thick film it was difficult to even look in the mirror. I wiped the film off and looked in the mirror and I saw ashes all over my head, as when the prophets of old repented they covered themselves in ashes. I started wiping the ashes out of my hair and pulled back the shower curtain to get into the shower and wash my hair and noticed that the shower had not been used for years because it was covered with spider webs. I wiped the spider webs out of the shower and then turned on the water that had not been used in a long time to let it flow through the shower. I took a shower and came out dressed with a sport top on and pants. I sat down at the end of the hall looking in a mirror and at the end of the hall was a business man whom I know that is a strong Christian and has been persecuted greatly. His first name is David and I was trying to show him my rib area as when a body builder is showing their rib muscles. Afterward, I rose up from the place I was sitting and walked outside of the church where there was a beautiful scene of the outdoor area so green and plush. I shut the door and on the door it was like a huge X and I left.
God showed me what the dream meant. The ivory colored Sunday school room indicated that the teachings that it looked pure but was not pure but instead had been tainted by flesh which had caused it to be unclean. Then the sanctuary that was like a theater and performance oriented indicated that God was not lifted up but rather man lifted himself up and was performing, being a celebrity of sorts to the audience in the church. The church had become a mere concert or performance to entertain people. Later as I walked to the end of the hall and went into the old green bathroom Holy Spirit showed me that because of envy in the church there was no true healing and deliverance but rather the mirror was covered up so people could not see truly their condition. Moreover, the fact that I had ashes on the top of my head indicated Holy Spirit had caused a repentance to rise up in me so that I could see truly the condition of the surroundings and take the word to clean things. The couple that was in the shower and thought they took a shower never turned on the water but rather stepped out and thought they were clean. The washing of the Word was not flowing, Holy Spirit was not flowing in their healing and deliverance but they thought they were delivered and healed but truly were not. The spider webs in the shower are in reference to Isaiah 59.
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened at all, that it cannot save, nor His ear dull with deafness, that it cannot hear.2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.3 For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue mutters wickedness.4 None sues or calls in righteousness [but for the sake of doing injury to others—to take some undue advantage]; no one goes to law honestly and pleads [his case] in truth; they trust in emptiness, worthlessness and futility, and speaking lies! They conceive mischief and bring forth evil!5 THEY HATCH ADDERS’ EGGS AND WEAVE THE SPIDER’S WEB; HE WHO EATS OF THEIR EGGS DIES, AND [FROM AN EGG] WHICH IS CRUSHED A VIPER BREAKS OUT [FOR THEIR NATURE IS RUINOUS, DEADLY, EVIL].6 THEIR WEBS WILL NOT SERVE AS CLOTHING, NOR WILL THEY COVER THEMSELVES WITH WHAT THEY MAKE; THEIR WORKS ARE WORKS OF INIQUITY, AND THE ACT OF VIOLENCE IS IN THEIR HANDS.7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their paths and highways.8 The way of peace they know not, and there is no justice or right in their goings. They have made them into crooked paths; whoever goes in them does not know peace. Isaiah 59:1-8.
The adder’s egg, the snake, here indicating leviathan is hatched along with the weaving of the spider’s web in order that instead of being washed in the washing of the Word, instead people think they are eating the Word but instead, they are eating of the adder’s egg, that of a viper and although they think it is God speaking to them it is satan because the truth is twisted and perverted, unclean, and has no power but instead has become witchcraft. They then use the witchcraft, twisting of the truth, to cover themselves and that is their covering, not the righteousness of Christ Jesus but rather they are workers of iniquity, committing acts of violence, running to evil, shedding innocent blood, having thoughts of iniquity and bring destruction wherever they go. They think they know peace but that way they do not know because they are workers of iniquity.
Holy Spirit showed me this begins in a person or church that because of pride stirring up in them they instead of wanting to see the image of God in which they are made, they instead want to be “like God, like the Most High” just as Lucifer in heaven and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They both wanted to usurp God and be “like” Him.
The reason God had me turn on the water was because the Word was not flowing and used it to wash myself not getting weaved in the web of leviathan. In addition I was at the end showing off my ribs to David as a body builder, indicating that I was my beloved’s because David means beloved and the rib area indicates where a person is ONE WITH, UNITED WITH. I was united with God in the truth and I walked out of the place that had deception due to pride.
Like in Isaiah 14 where Lucifer wanted to be “like the Most High” in Hebrew is dâmâh and means “to compare, to resemble, to liken, to consider, and devise.” (Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Word # 1819). Therefore, Lucifer had become so close to the Most High walking the Holy Mountain of God that instead of worshiping and serving God he begin to take his eyes off of the Most High and look at his own beauty to start to COMPARE HIMSELF TO GOD, TO RESEMBLE GOD, TO CONSIDER HIMSELF GOD, TO FINALLY DEVISE TO BE GOD! Likewise, the closer we get to God, the deeper we go with Him, we have to maintain a position of humility, which I purpose to do, by the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord. As we draw closer to Him and God draws closer to us there is more clarity as to the knowledge of Him and if we are not careful we can find ourselves instead of desiring to be created in God’s image simply to glorify Him we instead decide we are like God, we compare ourselves to Him, we do our own will, we begin to rebel and eat of the fruit of iniquity in our heart because pride has entered and sin has sprung to life! We instead of exalting God, exalt ourselves and call it God truly believing that it is of God that we are preaching and teaching what we are to others when if we are deceived because of pride we are rather teaching not the TRUE GOSPEL but another gospel which exalts man to the level of God causing profanity to enter the House of God! We then make church what we want and commit the sin of Cain to bring to God that which is of the flesh and offer it to Him when in fact it is strange fire and utterly an abomination!
