The leviathan spirit, king over the proud

The Bible highlights a fearsome sea serpent called leviathan in Job 41 and Jeremiah 8. Since all scripture is useful for “training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work,” what should we learn about leviathan, especially since it is called “the king...

Beware spiritually unclean objects that God detests

Seeking God’s healing for our fear of being hurt
