The Frogs

(Exodus 8:3; Matthew 24:24-26; Revelation 16:13-14)

John said that Satan will deceive the kings of the earth and will gather them together to battle Israel. This will be the work of three unclean spirits “coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs, for they are spirits of demons performing signs that go out to the kings of the whole world.”1Rev 16:13-14

Moses described the plague of frogs in Egypt, saying, “[They] shall go up and come into your house, into your bedroom, on your bed, into the houses of your servants.”2Exo 8:3 These frogs sound like the end-time locusts described by Joel: “They run to and fro in the city, they run on the wall, they climb into the houses.”3Joel 2:9 However, frogs are unlike locusts because they hop. They hop out of the mouths of the dragon and the beast and the false prophet.

The mouth of the dragon represents the lies of Satan. The mouths of the beast and the false prophet represent the lies of false Christs and false prophets. Jesus said, “False Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.”4Matt 24:24

Jesus warned us, “If they say to you, ‘He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or ‘He is in the inner room,’ do not believe them.”5Matt 24:26 His meaning must be this: They will say, “Jesus is still in the wilderness. Daniel said that desolations will continue until the end. Our church also has the power of salvation. There is no need to go to the so-called True Church to pray in the holy spirit. It is better for you to pray in your inner room, just as Jesus said.”

False Christs and false prophets will perform great signs and deceive many. They will make the kings of the earth powerless in righteousness, and these kings will easily be fooled by Satan’s schemes.
