We often look to places like Ezekiel 38 for signs, but the reality is that the 6th Vial in Revelation 16 describes perhaps the most important sign for our generation because it is the very last sign to directly portend the return of Christ.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
In verse 13, the primary emphasis is on the unclean spirits – not the frogs, which are only intended to help describe the unclean spirits. The unclean spirits represent teachings which are detestable to God. The detestability of humanism has been a constant since Adam and Eve, and today’s human nature and sin is no better or worse than it was in the time of Nimrod or the Tower of Babel. What is more detestable to God today, is the global influence wielded by the anti-Christ and the harlot-church.
The meaning behind the symbol of the Frog can be found in both the Exodus and Psalms which speak of the pervasiveness of the Frogs during the Egyptian plagues and how they were so omnipresent that they even entered the kings bed chambers – Psa 105:30. This pervasive influence is one that comes from three entities; the mouths of the Dragon (Russia), Beast (Europe) and False Prophet (the Papacy).
However verse 14 has strong links back to other sections of scripture which give us more information about this pervasive policy, and it is not just any policy; these verses describe the apostate doctrines of the False prophet in the last days suggesting that what verse fourteen is describing, is not so much a political ideology, but a blasphemous ecclesiastical policy or teaching. Such a hypothesis would not be against the grain of the broader narrative of Revelation which includes the history of the rise and fall of the apostate system.
Both Europe and Russia are components of the former Roman and Byzantine Empires which indulged the teachings of their respective apostate churches – Catholicism, and Orthodoxy. Today, with the help of social and news media, the teachings are louder, more pervasive, and perhaps more blasphemous – and they are indulged by both the European leaders and the Russian state.
The biblical term “spirits” refers to doctrines & teachings:
1 John 4:1 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world
“The Spirits of Devils”
1 Tim 4:1 – Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.
Matt 24:24 – For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
“Kings of the Earth”
Revelation 17 (the harlot riding the beast) – And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
Pope Francis: “We can accomplish Miraculous things”
Only a few weeks ago, Pope Francis made the following comment;
“We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now. No longer shall we slaughter our neighbors over differences in reference to their God.”
– Pope Francis.
