The War Frogs of Armageddon


“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 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. 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 the great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon – (Rev.16:12-16).


   At the end of the great tribulation, the time has come for God to pour out his 6th vial of his wrath upon the earth. It will be the final war of the age, the name of which has become a by-word among men since John first wrote it down – Armageddon. We are living in the last days of the day of grace and the gospel has been preached to the whole world. Now soon comes the tribulation wrath of God upon all who have rejected salvation in his beloved son, the Lord Jesus. I can see Jesus standing near his hometown of Nazareth, 12,000 feet above sea level, overlooking the plain of Megiddo where the final battle of Armageddon takes place. Nazareth is just 10 miles from Armageddon and I can see Jesus in Nazareth gazing upon the armies that will assemble there and I hear this scripture – “He that believeth on the son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth upon him” (Jn.3:36). The Lamb of God who died on Calvary for our sins and grew up in Nazareth and first started preaching his gospel of grace in his home town synagogue there, is coming back in wrath at Armageddon just a few miles away – (Rev.19:11-21).


   Yesterday, November 2nd-2004, while working as a custodian at a high school, a fellow-worker came up to me, put his fist to his mouth and seemingly pulled a rubber frog out of his mouth and gave it to me. I immediately felt the Holy Spirit impressing me about the ‘Frogs of Armageddon’ coming out of the beast and the false prophet. I walked outside and gazed upon the people going into the school library that was being used as a polling place for our presidential election which George Bush won. When I got home I turned on the A.O.L. news and it showed Bush and Kerry and a frog from “National Geographic” as best photo of the year. Election night and the frog points to politicians worldwide who will be deceived by evil spirits and send their armies to Armageddon, especially the chief politician, the emperor beast. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood…but against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph.6:12).


   In (vs.12) we see the beginning of Armageddon as the river Euphrates is dried up so that the armies of the east have no barrier to Israel. This opens the way for the land invasion from the east to foolishly battle with God Almighty in Israel. God is gathering them there for the slaughter. The nations such as China, Japan, India, Pakistan and other Mid-East nations such as Iran and Syria will join with them. After Armageddon the Euphrates will be a boundary of Israel forever and they will never be forced to give up their land again – (Gen.15:18). And now the U.S. Empire has conquered Iraq and controls it and it matters not which Iraqi Puppet Minister rules there for U.S. Now the U.S. controls the Euphrates River and the rivers of oil there.


   Oil has always been thought of as the traditional cause of conflict in the Middle East past and present. No longer. Now water is taking over from oil as the likeliest cause of war in the Middle East. Here in (Rev.16:12) the true cause of Armageddon is plainly told us – it’s a war over water. The struggle for control of water today, especially in Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Israel is growing more and more intense as the population grows. The Euphrates runs from Turkey through Syria and Iraq. It’s headwater is in Turkey which controls the flow through the other countries and Turkey says they have sovereignty over the water. Turkey is building 22 dams on the Euphrates and Tigris rivers that start there. The Ataturk Dam is the main one. These rivers are the keys to the water supply of the entire Middle East. You can live without oil but you cannot live without the water of life. I see Armageddon being caused by the water shortage of the Euphrates being dried up when Turkey closes the dams. Armageddon is finally caused by the Mid-East “Thirsting for war.” This is another reason for God using the war frogs of Armageddon. Frogs spend part of their life in water and part on land. The Mid-East nations are in ‘hot water’ now and it will soon boil over into Armageddon and the hottest war ever on planet earth. The most familiar frog in the U.S. is the ‘leopard frog.’ It is covered with leopard-like spots. We know that the beast is described as mostly like a leopard – (Rev.13). I believe the beast is the president of the U.S., the last emperor of (Dan.2) – the feet of the image. Our president is already ‘frogging’ with his war frogs in the Mid-East. Can you imagine how precious water will be when the rivers and fountains become blood?  – (Rev.11:6 and 16:4). Does the Euphrates turn to blood? Is that the reason for shutting the dams? Does only Israel have fresh water? “And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” – (Rev.22:17).


   The nations of the world are deluded by unclean spirits (devils) typified by frogs as they go forth from the final world emperor and his false prophet who convince world leaders to attack Israel. They deceive all the leaders of the world – (Rev.16:14). Satanic miracles are performed by the beast and false prophet which deceive greatly but in doing so they perform God’s will. (2 Thes.2:8-12) “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that hey should believe a lie” – (vs.11). The world is hypnotized by the miracles and the great words coming out of their mouths, as evil spirits rush to fulfill their miracles and imitate Christ. There will be strong delusion for people to believe antichrist is Christ. And then the Lord Jesus comes back from heaven with his army to defeat Satan’s pseudo – emperor and rule over the kingdom of God on earth forever as King of Kings.


   Did you know that a military loop in the belt for holding a bayonet is called a ‘frog’? Do you know about frogmen in the military – underwater demolition men? Frogs are called ‘amphibians’ because they are land and sea creatures and jump long distances through the air like airborne troops. At Armageddon, the world’s armies will use ‘amphibious’ forces as they encircle Israel. The U.S. perfected amphibious warfare in WWII, but Armageddon will make the amphibious landing by the allies at Normandy, France look small by comparison. This is why God showed frogs here at Armageddon because it prophesies of amphibious war in the end times. Frenchmen are called ‘frogs’ and both world wars included France in a major way.


   Russia made long range artillery rockets called ‘frogs’ – (Free rocket over ground missile). They can carry conventional or nuclear explosives. Russia sold hundreds of these frog missiles to Egypt, Iraq, and Syria. And Syria used them against Israel in 1973’s Yom Kippur war against Israel. As Israel was about to lose the war, they came very close to launching their nuclear weapons. Yes certainly this was a portent of Armageddon. War frogs in the land of Armageddon. Syria launched their ‘frog missiles’ against ‘Megiddo Airfield’ – (Armageddon).


   Frogs are used in school science classes. Science means knowledge and most of our scientists work for the defense establishment and making more deadly bombs to destroy the world in a nuclear Armageddon. God will make foolish the wisdom of this world (I Cor.1:20) as man dies and ‘croaks’ by the hundreds of millions because they continue eating from the forbidden tree of knowledge of good and evil – “Thou shalt surely die” – (Gen.2:17). Yes – the war frogs of Armageddon. And I considered this when I read that President Bush, with his fingers controlling our nuclear weapons, voted for himself yesterday in a firehouse in Crawford, Texas. Unclean spirits lead unclean,, unsaved people to a fiery Armageddon.


   (Vs.15) warns us that Jesus is coming like a thief in the night. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night: in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great nose, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Pet.3:10). The tribulation saints are exhorted not to walk naked like the world to their shame. The French (frogs) came out in 1949 with the smallest woman’s swim suit ever and called it a bikini and makes them 99% naked. (Bikinis are worn by millions in the U.S.). When the U.S. began testing H-bombs in the pacific in the 1950’s on an island, they named it Bikini Islands after the Bikini. God writes naked right here next to Armageddon to warn this fornicating U.S. what’s in store. These H-bombs were a preview of Armageddon. Bikinis and nakedness and Armageddon.


   I believe many people will walk around totally naked during the tribulation as the world throws off all Godly restraints like a garment. Already last year in Canada and the U.S. hundreds of naked people volunteered to be filmed. God will show the whole universe the nakedness and shame of planet earth. God will set them as a gazingstock. “I will show the nations thy nakedness and the kingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable faith upon thee and make thee vile and will set thee as a gazingstock” – (Nahum 3:5-6). During this time of the beast, the whole world fornicates like beasts. Nakedness is in (Lev.18) 30 times and is connected with fornication. God calls it abomination. All impure sex and nakedness outside of marriage is fornication. And because of all these abominations including idolatry of the beast God’s wrath falls. Jesus calls it the ‘abomination of desolation’ or maybe like this – A-bomb-a-nation. When you a-bomb a nation it makes the land totally desolate. The war frogs of Armageddon. Unclean frogs and unclean spirits for unclean people.


   The boyhood friend of our current President Bush said, “A low spot behind Bush’s house would fill with water after the rain and the frogs would come out. We’d put firecrackers in the frogs and then throw them and blow them up. We were terrible to the animals.” And Bush still loves to bomb, especially in the middle East, and brags about being our ‘War President.” Both presidents George Bush started wars in the Mid-East which are a prelude to Armageddon. The president of the U.S.A. with the most powerful military power that has ever been on earth. And we are using the power to murder thousands of people as oppressors in unjust wars – not in self-defense put in selfish offense.

Yes – the war frogs of Armageddon


   Are you saved? Have you received your atonement for your sins? Atonement means a covering for sin. When naked Adam and Eve sinned, God covered them with a lamb skin pointing directly to his beloved son – “The lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” It is written in (IS.61:10) “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God: for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness.” When the Lord Jesus saves us, he covers our sins. “Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered” – (Rom.4:7). Don’t die naked and in your sins in the sight of God. Repent of your sins and believe in your heart on the Lord Jesus and be born again. If this is done in truth you’ll be a new creature in Christ waiting for the translation (rapture) and the tribulation wrath of God will not fall upon you. Amen and Amen.
