In Seventh Son (2014), Falcon knights battle dragons and witchcraft

Once upon a time, knights battled against dragons. Or so goes many a medieval tale.

The legend of “Saint George and the Dragon” comes to mind. Even Tolkien wrote of warfare against dragons, though for Tolkien, contrary to the Bible, the east is Mordor, and some commoner bowman is able to slay the dragon Smaug (ref. 1).

The idea of knights fighting against dragons and slaying them is both allegorical and prophetic.

In the future, the saints of Jesus Christ will wage war against what remains of the servants of “the great dragon” (δρακων, “drakon”, ref. Revelation 12:9) that is Satan, also known as the Devil.

This is prophesied in Jude 1:14.

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds…

Jude 1:14-15

As I have explained before, the “saints” or the “holy ones” of Jesus Christ are special Christians that have been chosen and predestined by God the Father to serve his Son during his one thousand year reign. A saint can be thought of as a knight: that is to say, a saint will be a warrior, a judge, and a lord. A saint will lord over a fiefdom like a medieval knight. This is why one of the titles of Jesus Christ is “the Lord of lords” (ref. Psalms 136:3, Revelation 19:16).

Notice that it is written in Jude 1:14 that Enoch, who was “the seventh from Adam”, was the first to have prophesied this.

Enoch’s father was Jared (ref. Genesis 5:18). Jared’s father was Mahalaleel (ref. Genesis 5:16). Mahalaleel’s father was Cainan (ref. Genesis 5:13). Cainan’s father was Enos (ref. Genesis 5:10). Enos’s father was Seth (ref. Genesis 5:7). Seth’s father was Adam (ref. Genesis 5:4). And Adam’s father was Jesus Christ (ref. Genesis 1:26-27), the Son of God, who was begotten by God the Father.

… which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech, Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan, Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

Luke 3:36-38

The son of the son of the son, and so on seven times. So, Enoch was, in a way, the seventh son.

This brings me to the movie Seventh Son (2014).

Seventh Son (2014) is based on the medieval fantasy novel “The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch” by Joseph Delaney. Both the book and the movie are about the war between evil and good, between dragon-like witches and those who oppose them. In the movie, the ones that hunt down and fight dragons and witches are “knights” of the “Order of Falcons”, a falcon of course is a bird of prey. These hunters are typically chosen and trained, because they are the seventh son (ref. 2).

The catchphrase of the movie is this: “In the face of evil, claim your destiny”.

All of this – the bird of prey (ref. Isaiah 46:11, Ezekiel 38:4) in this case a falcon, the hunting down of evil (ref. Jeremiah 16:16), the seventh son (ref. Luke 3:36-38), and even the notion of destiny (ref. Romans 8:29-30) – clearly point to the saints of Jesus Christ, the prophecy of Enoch (ref. Jude 1:14-15).

One thing to beware about the movie Seventh Son (2014) is that it, having come from the adversary of God, what antiquity called a daemon or a genie, attempts to suggest that there is such a thing as a witch that is not evil. This same idea can also be found in stories such as Harry Potter.

It should be obvious that any supernatural power that is not from God must be from Satan and his lot, for in reality there are only two sides, good and evil.

So, witchcraft is always and everywhere evil, and all witches must be killed.

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

Exodus 22:18

Witchcraft must be stopped because the rebellion against God (ref. Revelation 12:7-9) must be brought to an end, and order must be restored.

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…

1 Samuel 15:23

In the book of Job, Satan is described as “leviathan”, a metaphorical beast that, contrary to the imagination of Tolkien, no human weapon can defeat.

The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon. He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of the spear.

Job 41:26-29

In a way, this beast resembles a fire-breathing dragon.

Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

Job 41:19-21

Only the two-edged sword of God (ref. Psalms 149:6) can wound Satan and his angels.

This monstrous beast is king over all the children of pride (ref. Job 41:34). Yet the hope of him is in vain, because Satan is the opponent of Almighty God (ref. Job 41:9-10).

Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? What hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

Job 41:9-11

In another movie Season of the Witch (2011), again, we can see, the idea of knight versus dragon.

In this case, two medieval crusader knights and a Christian priest are tasked with transporting a witch to an abbey to destroy the witch’s power (ref. 3).

Towards the end of the story, it is revealed to the audience that the witch is actually a woman possessed by a flying dragon (ref. 4).

This makes sense because, the power of witchcraft, what the self-professed Satanist Aleister Crowley called magick, indeed comes from a demon, or to put it another way, a dragon.

So, to recap, there will come a time when knights, so to speak, will take on dragons.

For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.

Hebrews 2:5

The saints, otherwise known as the holy ones of God, will do this for the glory of the kingdom of God, a kingdom and commonwealth that will eventually span the entire globe.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7
