A GREAT NUMBER OF PEOPLE MIGHT WONDER WHAT THIS STATEMENT ‘SLAYING THE DRAGON IN THE SEA’ really means and from whence it comes. But if we could take you for one moment into the book of Isaiah where in the 27th chapter of Isaiah the Eternal speaks, ‘In the day YAHWEH, with HIS great and strong sword, shall punish Leviathan the piercing serpent, even Leviathan, that crooked serpent; and HE shall slay the dragon in the sea.’ Strange as it might seem, the ancient wisdom known to your forefathers from the time of the revelations given to Enoch of the unveiling of the symbols of the constellations of the heavens, and incorporated into all the schools of wisdom of your race, were things which were in mystery and in symbol, and the mystery of the Dragon, and this Dragon out of the sea was known unto them.
And as where it might seem a strange thing, but to those who have travelled through the long course of Masonic rituals, and its background, will remember also that one of the elements in the pattern of victory was over the Dragon out of the Sea, the symbol of the Dragon, the symbol of this transplanting of the Dragon to earth. And then the earth, the great battle field between the Dragon and the Hosts of the MOST HIGH GOD, was declared in symbolism and so understood by our forefathers that it was incorporated into their sacred literature. It was incorporated into their mysteries, but it was one of the things that they thoroughly understood. There was never any disillusion on their part, but that they were to take part in this objective. Very, very clearly, this naming of the Dragon and the identification of it was known.
