Revelation 16:16 “And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har Magedon.”
What is Armageddon? Our modern culture and the movies have muddied the water on what Armageddon is. What does the Bible say about Armageddon?
What we are really talking about is the Jezreel Valley in Northern Israel. It is 14 miles wide and 67 miles long. Also known as the Valley of Megiddo from ancient times, it comes from the Hebrew word, Har Magedon, meaning the mound of Megiddo, referring to the ancient city of Megiddo. Many other battles were fought in this area over many years.
Armageddon is the gathering place for the end-time battle. Why is the battle to be fought? Jerusalem. That valley is the gathering point for the armies of the Antichrist from the north, the east, and the Mediterranean to assemble for the coming battle at Jerusalem. It is a battle against the evil forces of mankind, and of course, God wins.
But, our victory has already been won. At Calvary! Armageddon is not the end for the “Bride of Christ” but the beginning!
