I believe that every subject or question humans have can be found in the compiled books we call Bible, even the most bizarre and fantastic ones. Humans are basically the same as we have been for thousands of years. However, to solve some of the riddles or determine if the Bible addresses some of the bizarre subjects; one might have to study the words from the original languages of the Bible. It is no coincidence that we are dealing with this subject on “dragons” at this time.

This morning, while in the Waiting Room/area for my sons yearly “Well Child Check-up,” my attention was drawn to the TV that was on CNN. They were showing the MOAB weapon (bomb) that was dropped on Afghanistan yesterday. As the reporter talked about the intricate levels of caves, complex tunnels and mazes that were destroyed; my over active imagination or visions kicked into gear. Had they discovered another family of giants, Nephilim or other world creatures they want to keep out of the public’s view? I thought. The last time I had those thoughts, flashes about that region was in the early 2000’s. I posted them on a webpage and stated it would be reported and validated by foreign news. Months later, it was leaked and other whistle-blowers have come forth since, reporting a red-haired giants was killed by US forces after several were attacked and killed by the giant in the caves of Afghanistan. Just think, all the natural beauty of cave structure and caverns that’s been there for thousands of years are demolished. We’ll see what’s leaked in the weeks or months to come.

We have uncovered many things in this Dragon series, which were intended to educate, enlighten, empower and give you permission to think outside the box and realize the BIGNESS of our God. The Creator is not threatened or intimidated by knowledge, science, extraterrestrials, principalities, other worldly beings or anything. Did they not all come out of Prime Creator? Is He not OMNI-science, All knowledge? Does not the Bible clearly states that various animal-like chimera humanoids exist, crying holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty?

If the Seraphim (flying dragons), the Cherubim (4 faced animal humanoids), the Ophanim (fiery spherical shaped creatures covered with EYES), the 3 highest ranks of beings the Bible calls angels exist, wouldn’t you expect to one day see them? Wouldn’t you want to encounter them or speak with them?


Was there a belief or knowledge about literal dragons among the original Hebrew people? Was this understanding shared with other surrounding nations? Yes, and the Bible is filled with it.

Before Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians, the prophet Jeremiah spoke these amazing words. “And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.” Jeremiah 9:11 Could this have literally happened? Was there a time in the not too distant pass when human and dinosaur like creatures actually lived side by side that the Bible records?

In the fulfillment of Jeremiah’s prophecy, the city of Jerusalem laid wasted many years due to the Babylonians attack around 587 BC, led by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. But that’s not all. Living literal dragons took up habitation among the ruins of the city, one in particular near a spring of water by the city’s demolished wall. This was located near the Valley Gate toward the southwest corner of the Wall that led down to the Dung Gate and the Valley of Hinnom (hell). Just in that sentence alone, is pregnant with many prophetic revelatory messages. Throughout history, many times called myths, dragons seemed to have been attracted to the ruins of once great spiritual civilizations.

“And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.” Nehemiah 2:13 KJV

Some translations of the Bible use the words “serpent’s well.” Other translations totally change the translation to “jackal’s well.” The original Hebrew word used for “dragon” is “tan’nin” (number 8577 in the Strong’s Concordance) which means, Dragon, sea monster, dinosaur, serpent. In researching this, it is evident that this was not just some mythical or figurative creature. This word is used many times throughout out the Bible, although, in some places mistranslated. It was first used in Genesis creation account,

“And God created great (tannin=sea monsters, dragons, dinosaurs, sea-serpents; land and marine monsters), and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly…” Genesis 1:21

I would like to end this phase of our prophetic and mystical journey chasing the dragons with a passage of Scripture that was not allowed to be a part of the biblical canon, King James Version of the Bible and other translations. I first read this many years ago and was amazed. When I read it a few days ago, I was blown away and started loudly praising my Father God.

The narrative of Bel and the Dragon is incorporated as chapter 14 of the extended Book of Daniel. The text exists only in Greek. The original Septuagint text survives in a single manuscript, Codex Chisianus, while the standard text is due to Theodotion, the 2nd-century AD revisor.

This chapter, along with chapter 13, is considered deuterocanonical: it was rejected by Rabbinic Judaism, and while it is viewed as canonical by both Catholic and Orthodox Christians, it is considered apocryphal by Protestants and typically not found in modern Protestant Bibles.

The Prophet Habakkuk is even mentioned and a fascinating story of him being teleported. Prophet Habbakuk was believed to be the son of the barren Shunamite woman in 2 Kings 4:16, whom Prophet Elisha gave her the miracle of having a son. This is the same son that grew up, had a heat stroke and died, but Prophet Elisha raised him from the dead.

This chapter lost chapter or rejected chapter from the book of Daniel tells how Prophet Daniel slayed a living dragon that was worshiped by the Babylonians.


1 And Daniel was the king’s guest, and was honoured above all his friends.

2 Now the Babylonians had an idol called Bel: and there were spent upon him every day twelve great measures of fine flour, and forty sheep, and sixty vessels of wine.

3 The king also worshipped him, and went every day to adore him: but Daniel adored his God. And the king said to him: Why dost thou not adore Bel?

4 And he answered, and said to him: Because I do not worship idols made with hands, but the living God, that created heaven and earth, and hath power over all flesh.

5 And the king said to him: Doth not Bel seem to thee to be a living god? Seest thou not how much he eateth and drinketh every day?

6 Then Daniel smiled and said: O king, be not deceived: for this is but clay within, and brass without, neither hath he eaten at any time.

7 And the king being angry called for his priests, and said to them: If you tell me not, who it is that eateth up these expenses, you shall die.

8 But if you can shew that Bel eateth these things, Daniel shall die, because he hath blasphemed against Bel. And Daniel said to the king: Be it done according to thy word.

9 Now the priests of Bel were seventy, besides their wives, and little ones, and children. And the king went with Daniel into the temple of Bel.

10 And the priests of Bel said: Behold we go out: and do thou, O king, set on the meats, and make ready the wine, and shut the door fast, and seal it with thy own ring:

11 And when thou comest in the morning, if thou findest not that Bel hath eaten up all, we will suffer death, or else Daniel that hath lied against us.

12 And they little regarded it, because they had made under the table a secret entrance, and they always came in by it, and consumed those things.

13 So it came to pass after they were gone out, the king set the meats before Bel: and Daniel commanded his servants, and they brought ashes, and he sifted them all over the temple before the king: and going forth they shut the door, and having sealed it with the king’s ring, they departed.

14 But the priests went in by night, according to their custom, with their wives and their children: and they ate and drank up all.

15 And the king arose early in the morning, and Daniel with him.

16 And the king said: Are the seals whole, Daniel? And he answered: They are whole, O king.

17 And as soon as he had opened the door, the king looked upon the table, and cried out with a loud voice: Great art thou, O Bel, and there is not any deceit with thee.

18 And Daniel laughed: and he held the king that he should not go in: and he said: Behold the pavement, mark whose footsteps these are.

19 And the king said: I see the footsteps of men, and women, and children. And the king was angry.

20 Then he took the priests, and their wives, and their children: and they shewed him the private doors by which they came in, and consumed the things that were on the table.

21 The king therefore put them to death, and delivered Bel into the power of Daniel: who destroyed him, and his temple.

Daniel Kills the Dragon

22 And there was a great dragon in that place, and the Babylonians worshipped him.

23 And the king said to Daniel: Behold thou canst not say now, that this is not a living god: adore him therefore.

24 And Daniel said: I adore the Lord my God: for he is the living God: but that is no living god.

25 But give me leave, O king, and I will kill this dragon without sword or club. And the king said: I give thee leave.

26 Then Daniel took pitch, and fat, and hair, and boiled them together: and he made lumps, and put them into the dragon’s mouth, and the dragon burst asunder. And he said: Behold him whom you worshipped.

27 And when the Babylonians had heard this, they took great indignation: and being gathered together against the king, they said: The king is become a Jew. He hath destroyed Bel, he hath killed the dragon, and he hath put the priests to death.

28 And they came to the king, and said: Deliver us Daniel, or else we will destroy thee and thy house.

29 And the king saw that they pressed upon him violently: and being constrained by necessity he delivered Daniel to them.

Daniel in the Lions’ Den

30 And they cast him into the den of lions, and he was there six days.

31 And in the den there were seven lions, and they had given to them two carcasses every day, and two sheep: but then they were not given unto them, that they might devour Daniel.

32 Now there was in Judea a prophet called Habbakuk, and he had boiled pottage, and had broken bread in a bowl: and was going into the field, to carry it to the reapers.

33 And the angel of the Lord said to Habbakuk: Carry the dinner which thou hast into Babylon to Daniel, who is in the lions’ den.

34 And Habbakuk said: Lord, I never saw Babylon, nor do I know the den.

35 And the angel of the Lord took him by the top of his head, and carried him by the hair of his head, and set him in Babylon over the den in the force of his spirit.

36 And Habbakuk cried, saying: O Daniel, thou servant of God, take the dinner that God hath sent thee.

37 And Daniel said: Thou hast remembered me, O God, and thou hast not forsaken them that love thee.

38 And Daniel arose and ate. And the angel of the Lord presently set Habbakkuk again in his own place.

39 And upon the seventh day the king came to bewail Daniel: and he came to the den, and looked in, and behold Daniel was sitting in the midst of the lions.

40 And the king cried out with a loud voice, saying: Great art thou, O Lord the God of Daniel. And he drew him out of the lions’ den.

41 But those that had been the cause of his destruction, he cast into the den, and they were devoured in a moment before him.

42 Then the king said: Let all the inhabitants of the whole earth fear the God of Daniel: for he is the Saviour, working signs, and wonders in the earth: who hath delivered Daniel out of the lions’ den.
