We do not know what Leviathan looks like. Many suppositions exist, but I want to clarify that this is only an artist’s rendering.  It is not a photograph 🙂

“That Day” refers to the Tribulation and Millennium.

There is a threefold sword of destruction described here. It is described as heavy, hard, and grievous. There will be no defense against it. Leviathan, in this verse referring  to  the great world powers at the end of this age, and of the evil one who will instigate them.  He is spoken of both as the serpent and the dragon, Gen. 3:1; Rev. 20:2, 10.

Rev. 19 corresponds to  Isaiah 26:21, And Rev. 20 to Isa. 27:1
