The Book of Revelation 16:13-14

Spirits like Frogs

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.”

(Rev 16:13-14 KJV)

Unclean spirits like frogs are demons that Satan uses to do his will. The dragon is Satan, the beast is the antichrist, and the false prophet is the antichrists second in command and spiritual leader. They will perform miracles and deceive the world leaders and the rest of the world. They will bring the world leaders to the Battle of Armageddon.

Great Day of God Almighty

That great day of God Almighty is another name for the Battle of Armageddon. It is the great day of God because God will proclaim victory over Satan and his followers.
