What Is The Armageddon?

Question

Can you kindly explain the term Armageddon as i heard it in a program End of Time shown on a TV channel.


Answer

The word occurs in the Book Revelation (16:16) of the New Testament:

And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. (Re: 16:16)

Smiths Bible Dictionary of the Bible says:

The scene of the struggle of good and evil is suggested by that battle-field, the plain of Esdraelon, which was famous for two great victories, of Barak over the Canaanites and of Gideon over the Midianites; and for two great disasters, the deaths of Saul and Josiah. Hence it signifies in Revelation a place of great slaughter, the scene of a terrible retribution upon the wicked. The Revised Version gives the name as Har-Magedon, i.e. the hill (as Ar is the city) of Megiddo.--ED.)
