3 Frogs Bring World to Megiddo

Frogs and Megiddo

             3 Frogs Bring World to Megiddo

One might react to the title, saying, the whole world is far too smart to be led anywhere by 3 frogs, especially the Western world of the US and Great Britain, and especially not to Megiddo in Hebrew, called Armageddon in Greek; because everybody knows that is the place of the last great battle where God Himself intervenes to bring this old earth to an end, and to punish all accumulated injustices.  Megiddo, now a Israeli Kibbutz of Megiddo, is located just north of the West Bank in Israel–one of the Jihadists strongholds in Palestine along with the famous Gaza over on the coast of the Med.  This takes care of one of the three frogs, and the logic of what we see in the world today in the light of prophetic predictions on eschatology is that the other “unclean spirits that are like frogs” (Revelation 16:13) must be Al-Quaida knocking on the northern border of Israel in order to get down a short distance to Megiddo, and ISIS which can not wait to destroy Jerusalem and the “camp of the saints”  (Revelation 20:9)
5-1:  Megiddo and the 3 Frogs
Why Megiddo and why one of the least harmful of all threats to humanity, 3 frogs?  Preliminarily and before full development from the Bible of Revelation, Daniel, and II Thessalonians, let it be stated that God is still in control of this Universe, intervening, and has chosen to allow this method of development in order to bring the affairs of this old earth to an end, before the second coming of Christ to intervene and win the battle, and the subsequent creation of a new earth and new heavens where God lives and righteousness prevails.  A dream,
not really as that is what God has planned all along to wrap up world affairs, and the reason He had it recorded as prophetic predictions in the Bible of Zechariah, Daniel, Revelation, and II Thessalonians and other Scriptures thousands of years ago.  God said in the Old Testament that He would never do anything without first warning His own people; and furthermore while there in the public record of the Bible for all the kings of the earth and others to read, it will be only accepted by faith from His own people until the frogs are hopping at the gate of Jerusalem and have taken one-half of the people captive (Zechariah 14:2).
Megiddo, strategically located at the head of a pass through the  Carmel Ridge  overlooking the  30 mile Jezreel Valley around the Tel of Megiddo,  is famous as the site of at least 3 famous and large battles of history:  (1) in 1918 A.D. the last battle of World War I, by the way advertised as the war to end all wars, was where the British defeated the Ottoman Empire; (2) In 609 B.C. Solomon built a fort on the site and in 609 BC King Josiah of Judah was killed there when opposing the march of the Egyptian King Necho II towards Assyria  {Read more at : http://www.answers.com/topic/battles-of megiddo#ixzz3CSboxGfd}; and (3) In around 1476 bc Egyptian Pharaoh Thotmes (Thutmosis) III led perhaps 10, 000 men in a rapid march against rebel Palestinian chieftains. They had sent outposts to hold the Megiddo pass, a covering force which was easily scattered leaving the king of Kadesh to face the pharaoh on the Megiddo plain. Thotmes’ army advanced in a concave
formation, its southern wing enveloping the rebels while the northern wing was driven between them and the town of Megiddo itself. They used surprise, shock action (chariots) and firepower (archers), cut communications, and enveloped the enemy.5-2:  All the frogs are not in the Middle East.
As for the symbol of frogs to represent unclean spirits, remember that we are talking about the Middle East tree frog, not those cute little frogs that hop around in your yard.  According to Wikipedia {http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Frog}, the Middle East tree frog “is found in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Egypt, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen.  And furthermore all frogs are noted for hoping distances like ISIS is hopping across borders and countries; some frogs are
extremely toxic and in South America natives glean a poison from them; and it is significant that supporters of terrorists like the Boiling Frogs Posts {or BFP} and in a recent online post:
“We will proceed by documenting the scale and scope of political repression in each US backed police state. We will then describe the scale and scope of US military aid buttressing the “remaking of the Middle East” into a chain of political prisons run by and for the US Empire. The countries and regimes include Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iraq, Yemen, Jordan and Turkey. . . all of which promote and defend US imperial interests against the pro-
democracy majority, represented by their independent social-political movements. – See more at: http://www.boilingfrogspost.
com/2014/04/24/obama-remaking-the-middle-east-the-american-gulag/#sthash.CLsGU6gD.dpuf

While we know that some frog leaders in the US, going back to the follies of the frog Bushes in creating Iraqi frogs, have out of ignorance of the Middle East, created millions of little frogs that would destroy the US and Israel, it is going a little far as does the BFP to suggest that the US has created a chain of political prisons in “Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain,
Iraq, Yemen, Jordan and Turkey”.  And we hardly read in Sibel Edmonds articles about the larger Muslim world from which funds for ISIS and other terrorists are coming!

5-3:  Lest we follow the example of today’s itching ears teachers of Christian fables on eschatology, and there are many mostly of the secret rapture type, we must show support for these subjects and images in Bible, primarily Revelation 16:12-16.
1.  First the 3 unclean spirits like frogs that come out of the mouth of the Dragon, Satan; out of the mouth of the beast {generally a city-state system and process as was Rome}; out of the mouth of the Prophet {a religious system like some have thought was the Pope’s religion of the seared
conscience, but for right now in our period of time, it is in all probability the Prophet Mohammed and at least Jihadists Muslims}.
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.” (Revelation 16:13)
The dragon is well identified in the Bible as a representation of Satan, really a vicious monster like ISIS that will kill, destroy, and malign.
“He laid hold on the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.”  (Revelation 20:2)
2.  Revelations 16:14 proceeds to give us some identifying descriptions of these unclean spirits like frogs.
“For they are spirits of demons {did you get that BFP, spirits of demons, of Satan and the fallen angels that were cast out onto the earth with him}, performing signs, which go out to earth and of the whole world…”  (Revelation 16:14a)


NOTE:   Always in the Bible as false miracles that strive to simulate the miracles and wonders of God like when He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, some places as in the II Thessalonians description of the “Lawless One”, the man of sin and of perdition–the very adopted son and personification of Satan, these signs are called “lying wonders” (II Thess. 2:9)},  These signs and wonders like suicide bombers with the spirits of demons go all over the world, some as you recall having come in 9/11/2001 to the U.S. in New York.
3.  You have always wondered what would bring great and Christian nations, and moderate Muslim countries to Megiddo for the final great battle; well, yes, it is the 3 frogs of unclean spirits like ISIS, Al-Quaida, Hamas, Gaza, and the West Bank and others.  Here is the answer in the second part of Revelation 16:14, Revelation 16:14b, and the answer is that these 3 unclean spirits like frogs brought the nations of the whole world to battle at Megiddo.
“…which go out to the kings of the earth and the whole world, to gather them to that battle of the great day of God Almighty.”  (Revelation 16:
14b)


5-4:  The gathering by Terrorists {the unclean frogs} to Megiddo of the Middle East is phrased twice, so we won’t miss it, in Revelation 16:14 and 16:15, and with in between the two a note of encouragement and warning about the simultaneous with the great battle coming of the Lord
Jesus Christ.
1.  The terrorists “gather” the nations to Megiddo in Revelation 16:14.
2.  The terrorists “gathered” all the nations together at a certain place, no doubt where there enlarged army is camped out to meet the boots on the ground which they think they can defeat; and no doubt the army of terrorists by then is so large that it looks doomed for Jerusalem, Judah, and the army of the
nations until God Himself and the Lord Jesus Christ intervene.
3.  Jesus, Who is giving all these revelations to the Apostle John, does not want us to forget and be confused about the Bible fact that His Second Coming will be at the same time as His rescue of half Jerusalem and some nations.

5-5:  God Himself  with one foot north on the Mount of Olives and one foot on the south as it is splits (Zechariah 14:3,4) “will fight against these nations”  (Zechariah 14:2), and at this second coming, Christ the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords” “He Himself treads the winepress of the
fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”  (Revelation 19:15,16)
1.  God the Fathers, “LORD” God, intervention at Megiddo.
“Then the LORD {this is always God the Father} will go forth and fight against these nations, and He fights in the day of battle.”  (Zechariah 14:3)
2.  At His Second Coming, the simultaneous intervention of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Now out His mouth {the Word of God, the King of kings, the Lord of Lords} goes a sharp sword, that with it He shall strike the nations.  And He Himself will rule them with a rod or iron.  He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”  (Revelation 19:15)

5-6:  Above is the good and winning side, but briefly from II
Thessalonians 2:1-12, let us look at the bad and losing side of Satan, “The Lawless One”, most nations of this earth, and the condemnation of all who do not believe the truth and had pleasure in unrighteousness”  (1:12}.
1.  Satan.
2.  “the mystery of lawlessness”
3.  Withdrawal of the Holy Spirit from earth, who previously since His coming in power and widespread after the Ascension bound the work of Satan and damped the mystery of lawlessness through the people of God until “the power
of the holy people was completely destroyed”  (Daniel 12:7)
4.  The Lawless One, the mystery of lawlessness, and the Falling Away bring on this earth the necessity of the END of justice, that God might be “just and the justifier of all that believe”  (Romans 3:26)  One of those 3 frogs of unclean
spirits comes out of Satan, and that has to be the Lawless One of II Thessalonians, the little horn of Daniel, and the unclean frog out of the mouth of Satan himself.  {All of you saw on TV and internet, the work of a demon spirit without regard for life and the laws of God; and if he is not himself, that is Al
Bagdady, the lawless one, he is a prototype of the worse that humanity can do to other human beings.

5-7:  God is just and the Justifier of all that believe.  You perhaps wondered at the simultaneous study of the book of Romans with Israel and Christian fables, and now you know, and it is introduced from Revelation 16:5-7.
1.  Revelation 16:5-7.

“And I heard the angel of the waters saying:  ‘You are righteous, O Lord, the One who is and who was and who is to be, because you have judged these things.  For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink.  For it is their just due.’  And I heard
another from the altar saying, ‘Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.”  (Revelation 16:5-7)


2.  “The just and justifier” of Romans 3:21-26.

“But now the righteousness of God apart from the law has been revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. {you can feel the rise in intensity from Paul as if the words of his sermons all over the first century Roman Empire}  For there is no
difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God., being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness {How about that, a demonstration from God, and how great it was!}, because in His forbearance God had
passed over the sins previously committed {all those in past history before Jesus and His death on the cross who exhibited faith}, to demonstrate at this time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3:21-26}


3.  “The just shall live by faith”  (Romans 1:16,17)

“For I am not ashamed {the Apostle Paul, the Hebrew of the Hebrews, and a former lawyer of Judaism} of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jews first and also for the Greeks.  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith’”  (Romans
1:16,17)


4.  Mellow your optimism, those of the Christian fables, on the future of Israel, only one half of them in Jerusalem will be saved; and only those who turn around what the Hebrew of Hebrews, the Jew Apostle Paul said about “the righteousness of God through faith”  (Romans 9:1-5 and Romans 10:1-4)
a.  Paul, the Christian Jew, did not write without tears, like Zechariah, Jeremiah, and Daniel, of the inevitable partial salvation of the Jews. (Romans 9:
1-5)

“I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and continued grief in my heart.  For I could wish that I myself were accursed  from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh, who are Israelites,
to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, , who is over all, the eternally blessed God.  Amen.”  (Romans 9:1-5)


   b.  However here is the reality between God the Father and the Jews, a reality that Paul with his soul captive to the Word of God as was Martin Luther, could do and say none other about his countrymen according to the flesh.

“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.  For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.  {They were first given the Bible and to them were committed the oracles of God including the oracle of Jesus, the Apostles, and the New Testament; and that was knowledge enough,
but knowledge rejected up until near the END.  Of course, we would dare not recognize that all over the world are presently Jews that are followers and witnesses to Jesus, for more than you realize unless you are involved in social media where they make their witness.}  For they  being ignorant of God’s righteousness and going about to establish their
own righteousness {this is true of so many other people in the world, including Christians, but the Jews took and have the lead}, have not submitted to the righteousness of God.  For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.”  (Romans 10:1-4)


5-8: What can we do if Israel will not believe their own Hebrew Prophet Zechariah, and what he plainly tells as a Prophet of God in Zechariah 13 and 14.


NOTE:  Out of time and space in this Bible session, but you can find exegesis of Zechariah 13 and 14 among other Bible sessions in “Israel Complete on the New Earth”.  Also if you go to the Bible study series of Israel as related to distortions of Christian fables today, at least an effort to straighten out the fables with sound doctrine, you should go to www.
biblecombibleman.com/Israel_LastThings.html .   You will also find in that series “Jesus and Israel” for proper Bible perspective on both.


5-9.  The little horn of Daniel.
The “little horn” of Daniel is the Lawless One or the man of sin and perdition, one of the 3 frogs and unclean spirits if you would; and you can find many references to exegesis of Daniel in the Bible series on “Israel and Last Things”; and you can download free “Cup of Water”, a condensed version of Mark with comments; and which as with Mark leads into the sweeps of eschatology of Daniel.  You can download Cup of Water, Mark and Daniel, in PDF free of charge with the link of www.biblecombibleman.com/CupWater.pdf .
5-10: Those unclean spirit frogs {how gross each frog looks in the image of the frog you shall at the beginning of this Bible session, in the history of humanity, and on TV} and their allies; but them and the whole world should know their inevitable fate under the hand of God as coming from
God through the Prophet Zechariah.


“And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem.  Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet.  Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”  {Zechariah 14:12)

“Peace, Peace” and Megiddo

“For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:13,14)

Megiddo

“The French military and political leader Napoleon Bonaparte once stood at the valley of Megiddo, which is a large tract of land and inland valley south of the Lower Galilee region in Israel, and remarked, “All the armies of the world could maneuver their forces on this vast plain.” Napoleon at that time either knowingly or unknowingly made a prophetic statement, because the Bible specifically states that one day all the world’s armies will indeed converge on that location and be met in battle by God Himself.”  {https://www.compellingtruth.org/battle-of-Armageddon.html}

final battle

NOTE:  Surely you have noticed that all the nations in the world are now at play in the Middle East Region as preparation for the final great battle.  Right now, it is centered around Syria, but the enemies of the US and Israel along with the 3 frogs of Megiddo are just itching for a large attack on Israel. 
America has many more reasons for optimism under President Trump, world peace has much less reason for optimism because of the inevitability of Megiddo. Megiddo is bad in that Israel will run red with blood for 200 miles, and you think of the size of the armies for all that blood, it is good in that there is also the Bible assurance that the good guys and nations are going to win. {Below the scene of the Jezreel valley from the Megiddo Tel where the final massive armies of nations will gather for the final shedding of blood.}

jezrel plain from Megiddo

Why Meggido?  It has always been the right location for battles being at a major junction of the highway of Nations and Kings.  Since Syria at the northern border 17 miles from Meggido, once the northern kingdom of Israel before rebellion and splitting of the united kingdom under King David.  Wikipedia lists some of the battles there of history:  { https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Megiddo}

Battle of Megiddo refers to one of the major battles fought near the ancient site of Megiddo in the Jezreel Valley of north of Israel:

King of Egypt and Josiah at Megiddo

Of course in the final analysis, God’s intervention is required on the side of victory, and simultaneously with the Second Coming of Christ and with the termination of this old earth system. The good news is that the old will be replaced with a new heaven and a new earth, and God Himself will dwell among men in righteousness.
Most people chose to think contrary to Bible teachings on eschatology that Megiddo will never happen, or that they will be raptured away from it, and that out of their imaginations of itching ears teachings and unsound doctrine, so many things have to happen yet to be seen that there is no reason to be immently concerned. Those reasons will be eliminated shortly; right now, it it necessary for groundwork to consider that these excuses for world optimism is placing America in the comparable place as Israel when the “Peace, Peace, when there is no peace” Prophets and Pastors ruled the roost during the days of Jeremiah.
I. Of course, world peace when there is and will be no world peace is best understood in the total context of the book of Jeremiah; however for practical reasons the focus will center on Jeremiah 6:10-16–

Jeremiah 6 verses 10 thru 16_001

1. “To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.” (Jeremiah 6:10)

There can be no real peace when any society operates counter to the Word of God, and do not delight themselves in the Bible.

2. “Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.” (Jeremiah 6:11)

This judgment on Israel came to pass shortly as the armies of Babylon destroyed Jerusalem with those not slain taken captive to Babylon. Today for America and the world, judgment is coming shortly on the destruction of this old earth by fire. As you see Megiddo and the Second Coming, you can expect that END of this world. Now, that is Bible realism more than the false optimism of the Prophets and Pastors.

3. “And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 6:12)

God has been patient with the sins of humanity, much more patient than we sould be; but inevitably there will come a day of judgment where He stretches out His almighty hand at Megiddo. As the Apostle Peter wrote:

4. “For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.” (Jeremiah 6:13)

Pretty bad shape in the eyes of good, both leaders and people were given over to covetousness, and even the prophet and the priest dealt falsely. Can that happen in America today with the present level of greed, deceit, and cover up, in the National Dens of thieves of even churches where CEOs run them and make millions. I don’t even think the Temples of God were in that much of a bad shape in Jeremiah.

5. “They {speaking of the prophets and priests in the verse before} have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:14)

Now we get the problem of false peace and optimism, it heals the hurt of the people of God only slightly; and furthermore, according to the Word of the LORD for that time in history and the time now, IT JUST IS NOT TRUE!

6. “Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
(Jeremiah 6:15)

Are the evangelists on TV even ashamed as they practice and preach the false Gospel of Prosperity and the CEO’s of church dens in Baton Rogue and Houston even blush when they hear other Christians contend for the faith in real Bible; not so, they just spend their time in justification of what they are doing as anointed using no Bible basis, only their own “pride of life” as a rationalizations and their popularity. We already know the world and love of the world is popular and always will be until Megiddo.

7. “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” (Jeremiah 6:16)

As itching ears teachers teach you Christian fables you will notice they become quite on Bible and loud on their own opinions. Like Joel, in spite of editing his fathers sermons for TV for 17 years, substitutes new ways for the old paths, bad ways for the good ways; neither walking in the Bible himself or finding any rest for his own soul. False prophets, teachers, and pastors and priests, effectively come back to God and His Word, saying, ‘WE WILL NOT WALK THEREIN!”

Conclusion: Next blog message will entail dealing with the exuses and substitutes for Megiddo.  Megiddo is far away from the US and no doubt we will see the final battle of TV right up to the intervention of God where the whole earth including the US will be destroyed by fire according to the Apostle Peter:

“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 noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”  (II Peter 3:10)

NOTE:  “day of the Lord” in the Bible is the final event of this old world as God, once patient and longsuffering for thousands of years, makes everything right:  He intervenes at Megiddo to give Christians the victory, He gathers believers to meet Him in the air as Christ Comes again, and terminates the old heavens and earth by fire before ushering in the new heaven and new earth.
