Frogs and angels

Reader comment on item: ISIS Rampages, the Middle East Shakes

The ME airspace is getting crowded, I am afraid.

Just to give you a small sample
Revelation Chapter 16
"12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. 13 Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty."

Chapter 9
"13 The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God. 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates." 15 And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of the mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand. I heard their number. "

Crowded indeed, if those 200 million troops are interpreted as evil spirits.
And for you people who claim this angel business is too irrational, please do read carefully one more time recent Middle East news.

Nota Bene: the great river Euphrates takes a prominent role and NB2 : we are moving here in the heartland of the late dictator Saddam Hussein. Where Babylon once was built.

Btw., according to the widely-known exegete and preacher Leo Meller the release of the 'froggy spirits' took place right there, on the banks of the river Euphrates. In autumn 2000.
