He moveth his tail like a CEDAR: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as STRONG pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron... Surely the mountains bring him forth food... the willows and the brook compass him about. Behold he DRINKETH up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordon with his mouth."

Job 41:1-34 -- "Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put a hook in his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? ...Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. Behold, the hope of him is IN VAIN: shall not one be cast down even at the SIGHT of him? None is so fierce that dare stir him up... Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. His SCALES are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal... out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. In his neck remaineth strength... the flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved... When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid... The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the harbergeon. He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear... He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment... Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. He beholdeth all high things: he is the king over all the children of pride."

Obadiah 4 -- "The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and THOUGH THOU SET THY NEST AMONG THE STARS, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord."

Revelation 12 -- "AND there appeared a great wonder in heaven; A WOMAN clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of TWELVE stars: And she being with CHILD cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. "And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a GREAT RED DRAGON, having SEVEN HEADS and TEN HORNS, and seven crowns upon his heads. "And his tail drew the THIRD PART of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and THE DRAGON stool before THE WOMAN which was ready to be delivered, for to DEVOUR her child as soon as it was born. "And she brought forth a MAN CHILD, who was to RULE ALL NATIONS with a rod of iron: and her child was CAUGHT UP unto God, and TO His throne. "And THE WOMAN fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. "And there was WAR IN HEAVEN: Michael and his angels fought against THE DRAGON; and THE DRAGON fought and his angels, "And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in HEAVEN. "And the GREAT DRAGON was cast out, that OLD SERPENT, called the Devil, and Satan, which DECIEVETH the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them day and night before our God. "And they overcame him by the blood of THE LAMB, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. "Therefore rejoice, YE heavens, and ye that DWELL in them. Woe to the inhabitors of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come DOWN unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. "And when THE DRAGON saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted THE WOMAN which brought forth the man CHILD. "And to the woman were given TWO WINGS of a GREAT EAGLE, that she might FLY into the WILDERNESS, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of THE SERPENT. "And THE SERPENT cast out of his mouth water as a FLOOD after THE WOMAN, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. "And the earth helped THE WOMAN, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which THE DRAGON cast out of his mouth. "And THE DRAGON was wroth with THE WOMAN, and went to MAKE WAR with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, AND have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

Revelation 13:4 -- "And they worshipped the DRAGON which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"

((( For those who are led to do so, there are battlefields of "spiritual warfare" that go FAR BEYOND this world that we see with our five senses. However these battlefields are severely lacking true spiritual warriors, who WOULD conquer these other realms for LIGHT and TRUTH... if ONLY true reborn Christians would cast off the veil that the "system" has placed around their minds TO LIMIT this war exclusively to this tiny little planet, when in reality there are "worlds without end" beyond our own. Are YOU willing to step out in faith and enter the TRUE battlefield in what has essentially become a "war in heaven" that spread from this small planet long ago and now affects the entire universe/omniverse? Even if it means that your battle would be one of an intercessory PRAYER warrior, which is a VITAL part of the battle, since all battles in the flesh are first won in the spirit! IF you feel led to do so, then you may -- prayerfully -- enter the... COSMIC SPIRITUAL BATTLEFIELD )))
