Wesley's Notes for Revelation 16:13


16:13 Out of the mouth of the dragon, the wild beast, and the false prophet - It seems, the dragon fights chiefly against God; the beast, against Christ; the false prophet, against the Spirit of truth; and that the three unclean spirits which come from them, and exactly resemble them, endeavour to blacken the works of creation, of redemption, and of sanctification. The false prophet - So is the second beast frequently named, after the kingdom of the first is darkened; for he can then no longer prevail by main strength, and so works by lies and deceit. Mahomet was first a false prophet, and afterwards a powerful prince: but this beast was first powerful as a prince; afterwards a false prophet, a teacher of lies. Like frogs - Whose abode is in fens, marshes, and other unclean places. To the kings of the whole world - Both Mahometan and pagan. To gather them - To the assistance of their three principals.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 16:13


Re 16:13 I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon. Let the reader observe there is an alliance of three powers described as the "dragon", the "beast", and the "false prophet". From their mouths came three unclean spirits, like frogs, who go forth to the kings of the earth, rally their forces under the banners of the three allied powers, and march them to the battle of the great day of the Almighty. We have met these three powers before, and know that these are really one, animated by one spirit, but appearing in different forms. The dragon, the Satan, wars against the woman, in the form of old Pagan Rome (Re 12:13-17); he then transfers this warfare to the seven-headed beast, the political world power shown both in the form of Imperial and Papal Rome (Re 13:7); this power was supported, reanimated when about to perish, by the lamb-like dragon who is the false prophet (Re 13:11). "As it were frogs" (Revised Version). Unclean, loathsome, suggesting the plagues of Egypt (Ex 8:2).

Discussion for Revelation 16

  • A disciple
    (verses 4-7) Jeremiah 7:29 "...for the LORD hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath." Jeremiah 15:1 "...Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth." Why, we ask, does the Lord keep silence, while the wicked exalt themselves, and go without restraint? Because He's about to destroy them!
  • Chyna Whitaker
    I love you Jesus, please help us Lord. Times are getting very hard for us, we need you Lord to strengthen us. In Jesus's name, I pray, Amen.
  • Obbie Beal
    Verse 1 above says, "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth".

    WOW! To God and Jesus be the All Glory Honor and Praise.

    The clothing is righteousness,let ye be found naked. White clothing. The mouth of frogs is false doctrine. Lies. Frogs catch prey with their tongue. Ya don't pray to saints and Jesus wasn't " just a prophet" ANY religion that teaches any other way than THROUGH Jesus only falls into these categories. The 3 lies satan used on Eve still carry into major religions, even some "Christan" ones
  • David Morrion
    verse 18though 22 is still yet to be. God destroyed the world with water. The net time he is going to destroy it with fire. Verse 20 says that an earth quake will destroy the mountains and islands were not found. This is still to come.
  • Who were the kings of the earth gathered together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.? Revelation 16: 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon Herod , and out of the mouth of the beast Pilate , and out of the mouth of the false prophet Caiaphas . Psalms 2: 1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed,... Acts 4: 5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, 6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. Acts 4: 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
