Dragons & Unicorns

Wow! I think it’s so cool how there have been so many different species of creatures on the earth, some that have even now become extinct.

I love to see all the many different references of the two mystic-type creatures in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, properly called, The Book of the Lamb of God, which cite many instances, both figuratively and literally, of dragons and unicorns.

There are 43 total instances, between the Old and New Testaments, where they are dually mentioned.

The earth is much older than just the human years described in Holy writ, but the earth was indeed created by Jesus in the way described. There had to be an era of dinosaurs, then after they were terminated, human kind was put upon the earth.

We are grateful for records of such events as the worldwide flood and other destructions. We are grateful to know that the continent split and pieces drifted. We are grateful for all truths, in all areas of study.

We know that all things have a spiritual side to them, for all things were first created spiritually, before they were physically manifested.

Perhaps one fun guess to make, is from the folklore of humankind. We may not have these extinct creatures, but people still tell stories, and pass them down through the generations. Perhaps there is probable truth in them.

One fun guess, is how there were firebreathing dragons. It’s possible that a creature could produce a poisonous flammable venom, which if sparked inside the oral cavity, could produce flames.

Another fun thought. The healing properties of unicorns: if the unicorns were indeed a pure and righteous creature, whose bands stayed together and avoided humans, who, by virtue of their innocence and sacred kindness, had a healing agent coursing through their veins, would not unwise and selfish people, try to take advantage of this holy beast, and slay it for personal use and gain?

    1. Yes, my wife let me know about the ox, after I’d already published it. I’ve heard many theories about the flood killing the dinosaurs too. It’s just a muse where I’d pondered on the point that I don’t think scientists have it all wrong, when it comes to the timing of the earth (age wise), or even the explosion which they say took place. In my definition, it would have only happen through God commanding it to be so. My thoughts go with the possibility that while we were living during our premortal lives in heaven, the earth had already been created, and was being inhabited by these “majestic” dinosaurs. Maybe the wild ox is ultimately the same thing as what this unicorn idea was referring to. For instance, men observe the same things, and give it a different name, or attach a different meanings to it. Maybe that’s why it was revealed to us for what it actually was, as stated in the bible dictionary, a wild ox. I did some searching, and there was some evidential findings that there was a unicorn found, but it was much different than the icon it has become. It was even described as I would think an ox could look, and called “ugly,” which I can see, if you were expecting a white horse with a horn on its head.
