In a recent podcast and article about the spirit of Leviathan, Jennifer Eivaz shared the teaching that this spirit most closely resembles a crocodile. In today’s episode, she unpacks that teaching more and also discusses the attributes of pride, since, she says, Leviathan is considered the “king of pride.”
On the Take Ten With Jenn podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, Eivaz says, “What does a crocodile do? Well, a crocodile likes to hang around the water. So we could say that a spirit of Leviathan likes to hang around the river of the Spirit,” she explains. “And then on top of it, that crocodile, have you noticed that they float … under the water. You just kind of see their eyes … just barely over the surface of the water. What are they doing? They’re looking for a victim. And so when they get that victim, they will actually drag that victim with their powerful jaws, they’ll snap onto that victim and drag that victim under the water and thrash about until that victim gives up, and then go in for the kill.
“And that’s pretty much a good picture of what the spirit of Leviathan does, it looks for a host. And through that host, that person who has come in agreement with the spirit of Leviathan, it goes after a victim and will thrash that victim and wear that victim out until that victim gives up. And then it goes in for the kill,” Eivaz says.
“And so that tells us something; it tells us that we need to really understand how this Spirit works. Because every power, every principality, works differently,” Eivaz says. “And a spirit of Leviathan works differently than a spirit of Jezebel; a spirit of Leviathan works differently than a python spirit. It works differently than a spirit of religion. And so the way you handle it, the way you overcome it and the way you battle against it is going to be different, and I’ll explain to you how this works.”
