Isaiah prophesied the ABUNDANCE of the SEA would be converted as the Gentiles saw the light and glory upon Israel through Messiah and flowed to the MOUNTAIN of God (Isa.60:113). The GENTILES coming into the KINGDOM was also a sign of the defeat of Satan who had controlled the GENTILES through IDOLATRY. This is described by Isaiah as the DEFEAT of LEVIATHAN who dwelt in the SEA (the NATIONS).

Isaiah 27:1 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.

LEVIATHAN is the spirit of PRIDE. He also represents REBELLION. The LORD would use his SWORD to punish LEVIATHAN. The SWORD is the WORD of GOD. The WORD of GOD preached from Jerusalem went to the nations. The GOSPEL of the KINGDOM was the instrument that SLAYED the DRAGON that was in the SEA. The GENTILES came to ZION.

Psa.74:12-14, For God is my King of old, working SALVATION in the midst of the earth.

Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. Thou brakest the heads of LEVIATHAN in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

The Psalmist equates God THE KING working SALVATION in the EARTH with BREAKING the HEADS of LEVIATHAN. The book of Acts is the record of salvation coming to the nations, and therefore a fulfillment of LEVIATHAN being JUDGED. Job 41:34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a KING over all the CHILDREN of PRIDE. LEVIATHAN is a KING over all the children of PRIDE. Those who humbled themselves and believed the gospel were delivered from his control. God broke his teeth and pulled the spoil out of his mouth. The nations came to Zion, and submitted to the REIGN of MESSIAH, and were DELIVERED from the REIGN of LEVIATHAN.
