Through Christ Jesus, I received the revelation concerning leviathan about 22 years ago through fasting and prayer. I had been a Christian about nine years, and during those nine years I had spent a lot of time fasting, praying in the Spirit, studying the Word of God, and attending church services and bible study. After doing all of this on a regular basis, I didn’t feel as if I really knew God. I felt as though something was actually holding me.

On one of my regular fasting days I asked God what was holding me. On this particular day I was fasting with my prayer partner who asked God what spirit was causing her uncle to have a mental problem. During the fast God spoke directly to my heart that I had pride, and He gave my prayer partner the scripture Isaiah 27:1 concerning her uncle’s mental problem--(Isaiah 27:1—[1] In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.) At that time, I did not know what God meant concerning my having pride because I had very low self-esteem. I felt as though I was worthless. And neither my prayer partner nor I knew what Isaiah 27:1 meant. But God is faithful, when you cry out to Him concerning a problem, He gives you the answer.

Not too long after God had spoken to me and my prayer partner, He sent a Prophetess to the church that I was attending who knew what Isaiah 27:1 meant. God had revealed it to the Prophetess through fasting and prayer. The Prophetess had asked Jesus to ask the Father why, when people would come to her for prayer, she would pray for their deliverance from whatever, and they would receive deliverance, but a few months later they would come back needing prayer for the same thing. They could not keep their deliverance. She wanted to know from God why couldn’t they keep their deliverance. In answer to her prayer, God showed her this vision of a rattlesnake behind a machine in the factory where she worked. She asked God what the vision meant, and God answered that, in a few days, a friend of hers would give her the information that she needed. Not too many days after that, the friend went into her bathroom and on the commode was a book. She had no idea where it came from. We believe an angel put it there. In that book was the information on leviathan, the spirit that comes on you through pride. 

Some time after the Prophetess came to the church that I was attending, the church had a retreat. My prayer partner, the Prophetess, one other lady, and I were roommates. The first night of the retreat I said to the Prophetess that I had trouble meditating on the Word—when I would do my daily Bible study, I would purpose in my heart to mediate on scripture. I would do ok during my study, but once I left my study, and went about my daily activities, I never thought about the Word again during the day. The Prophetess said to me that I needed to be delivered from that leviathan spirit and laid her hand on my forehead and prayed a prayer of deliverance, and I have not been the same since. That was 22 years ago this year, 2013.

However, I learned in the year 2010 that, even though the deliverance prayer was prayed for me, my deliverance was not complete. God revealed to me that the prayer was just the beginning, and that I needed to be purged. After God revealed this to me, I allowed Him to take me through what I needed to go through in order to get purged. Following is what the process is and how it works.



Leviathan is Satan's counterfeit of the Holy Spirit. Whatever problem you may be having in the flesh, leviathan is the root of it. Leviathan is the controlling spirit. No matter what the spirit is, leviathan is the controlling spirit and he must be addressed first, example, "leviathan witchcraft spirit." If you don't address leviathan first, witchcraft is not leaving.
