Who is Leviathan? QUESTION from Marcus Hains February 24, 2000 Dear Sir, Madame,
I'm the father of 2 children.
One of my children (Elisa,19), has some things going on what I don't understand.
One night, I heared sounds comming from here bedroom.When I took a look, I saw her sitting on her knees, with candles lighting her room. She was talking as if she was praying. She didn't notice me. I heared her call the name of Leviathan. She also wrote that name on her wall.
I didn't know what to think of it, and talked to her about !
Who is Leviathan? Is it a God?
I hope you can help me, because I don't know what to do!
Yours Sincerely, Marcus Hains
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on March 1, 2000 Dear Mr. Hains:
What you are describing is VERY troubling. If your daughter is doing all this that you describe, she may be in trouble and in need of help.
Leviathan is referenced in the Bible a couple of times. Most notable is in Isaiah 27:1:
On that day, the Lord will punish with his sword that is cruel, great, and strong. Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the coiled serpent; and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea. Leviathan and dragon are symbols of the forces of evil which God vanquished in the primordial past.
According to your description, it sounds like your daughter is trying to conjure up the demon called Leviathan.
She is flirting with EXTREME danger, especially to her soul.
As she is 19 there is not much one can do in authority over her, unless she is in your house. If she is living in your house then you must ban all such activity and remove any occultic books or materials that are in your house. You have the right to do this because it is your house.
You need to begin spiritual warfare prayers on behalf of your daughter. Even if she leaves your house, you, as father, have a paterfamilias authority over her spiritually. You can pray for her according to that authority.
What you are describing is potentially serious. I would advise that you call me on the phone BEFORE you do anything for further consultation.
Please email me personally about this and I will send you my telephone number for you to call me.
I will be out of town the rest of the week, but will be back on Sunday. I happen to be going to a Spiritual Warfare Conference where there will be nearly a 1000 professional spiritual warriors. I will ask them to pray for your daugher.
God bless. And remember, God is with her now and with you, even in the midst of troubles.
