PSALM 23 – MY FAVORITE PSALM
Psalm 23:1 -“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.”
23:2 – “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me besides the still waters.”
23:3 – “He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.”
23:4 – “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
23:5 – “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
23:6 – “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
A few days ago I posted something about the Behemoth, and today I’ll talk a little bit about the mysterious sea creature mentioned in the Book of Job… the Leviathan.
“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?… 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.” – Job 41: 1-2, 14, 19-21
The Leviathan has always taken my fancy ever since I was a little kid. The creature the Bible mentions is most likely a kind of extinct sea reptile, something like a Mosasaurus or the like… What do you think?
In Job, the Leviathan is described as a powerful creature, greatly to be feared. This great creature manifests the great power of its Creator.”Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.”- Job 41: 33-34
The interesting thing is that the Leviathan spewed forth flames from out of his nostrils and mouth… like a dragon of old, something we don’t see these days. As far as we know, there aren’t any more massive sea serpents swimming in our oceans.
But who knows what may be lurking in the dark unknown depths of the sea?. . .
In the Book of Job, there is a creature called the Behemoth. “Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. 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. He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.”- Job 40: 15-19
What exactly is this “Behemoth”? Yes, it is a dinosaur! Probably a Brachiosaurus, or a Titanosaurus. But some people think it is a hippo or an elephant. Well, the Bible says the Behemoth moved its tail like a “cedar”. Elephant and hippo tails are like twigs, not cedars! Evolutionists don’t want to believe that the Behemoth mentioned in Job is a dinosaur because they think that dinosaurs died out way before man came along, and the fact that man lived with dinosaurs would prove them wrong.
This video pretty much nails it… (From the”T.R.U.T.H. About the Dinosaurs” DVD)
That is what happens to those who dare to pick on the Behemoth!!
