My Thoughts On Frogs

American bullfrog living life!

The croaking of frogs is soothing to me. Frogs remind me of the innocence of my childhood an played an important part in my early life. I will always remember the delight I experienced finding them and the sorrow I experienced when they died under my care. My adult son has the same love for frogs that I have and I can see the same caring, awe, respect and amazement in him that I felt and experienced as a child. It warms a Moms heart! I hunted for toads in the water meters of located in the back alleys of my Texas home with my dad when I was a child. My Creator was looking out for us as we weren’t bitten by anything while sticking our hands into those water meters! I played with them on my front porch having tea parties with them. My fascination with these incredible creatures sealed my interest in God’s second book. The Lord has created such an amazing and a diverse animal kingdom for all us to enjoy and learn from.

I would never eat frog legs and it was impossible for me to pith a frog during biology.

Frogs were used as a plague In the Old Testament read Exodus 8: 1-32. In Egypt frogs were sacred and they worshiped a frog-headed goddess which they believed had creative power. Frogs were considered a good sign and represented good luck. The plague was primarily used to punish the persecutors of Israel but the Lord also used the plague to cast a shadow on the Egyptian’s pagan goddess and to show how powerful He was and that He was in control over these creatures. The great multiplication of frogs made the goddess Heqa appear vicious to her own fervent worshipers. 

In the New Testament frogs are mentioned once. They are used symbolically in an important prophecy in Revelation 16:13-14. 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.

Frogs are intended to emphasis the repulsiveness of the three unclean spirits (dragon, beast and false prophet) in the sight of God. Frogs capture their prey with their tongues. The mouth is the instrument of speech. (

I see you!
