The Kings of the East: Fallen Angels?

Not Tax Deductible

the kings of the eastThe The Kings of the East are the Four Angel Commanders of the Demon Cavalry who were bound at the Euphrates (Rev. 9:13-15).

12 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.
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.

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. (Rev 16:12-14, 16) KJV

The great river Euphrates is the easternmost boundary of the ideal Israel of God (Gen. 15:18), dying up its waters symbolic of removing what restrained their attack on God’s kingdom. These kings gather with the kings of the earth to a place in Hebrew called Armageddon, the place where Christ will battle Satan and his angels and the assembled armies of the Beast (Rev. 19:11-21). As they join the kings of the earth it implies they are not of this earth.

It follows from Revelation 9:15-18 the Kings of the East are the “four angels” who were bound in the Euphrates, although unbound to slay a third of mankind they themselves don’t do the killing. Their 200 million demon cavalry does the actual slaying, but as Kings they are unrestrained to order the slaughter (Rev. 9:15-18).

Confirming τῶν βασιλέων τῶν ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν ἡλίου (Rev 16:12 TR) “the kings the(ones) from risings of sun” infers they are from heaven (where the sun rises)—principalities and powers from heaven (Eph. 3:10; 6:12; Col. 2:15; Rev. 7:2; 12:7-12; Mt. 24:27), these join the “kings of the earth” implying they are not human kings “of this earth.”

Drying up the Euphrates “takes out of the way” (2 Th. 2:7-9; Rev. 9:1) the restraint of their evil, symbolically “preparing their way” because removing the restraint of the mystery of lawlessness permits the strong delusion to take hold, the energia of error. The antithesis of this is God’s conviction of the truth to the conscience of men (Rom. 9:1) which is also known as the “mystery of godliness”—note it contrasts giving heed to deceiving spirits (1 Ti. 3:16-4:1).

It follows from this context, flying frogs out of the mouth of the Dragon, Beast and False prophet that embolden men to fight God at Armageddon must symbolize the satanic “energia of error” strong delusion God can be defeated in battle (2 Th. 2;7-12). “Times and laws” have changed (Dan. 7:25), the arrival of the reptilian “ET Designers” permitted the Beast “cast truth to the ground” (Dan. 8:12) blaspheming God as another Extraterrestrial who can be defeated by the combined forces of the Beast and the Dragon “god of forces” (Dan. 11:36-37; Rev. 13:4).

END NOTE

Perhaps the species of frog John saw was the “Mascarene Rocket Frog” whose “flight” is accomplished by expelling a jet of water from its bladder, very common species in the Nile. There are many allusions to Egypt/Exodus in the book of Revelation therefore the connection is not as tenuous as might appear.
