Contrary to what you might think, Armageddon – the prophesied location in Christianity of the final battle at the end times – is NOT a mythical place. In fact, it is a very real place – a mountain located in north Israel…actually, it’s more of a hill than a mountain. You can take a plane and visit it tomorrow. 

Given that, you probably think that Armageddon is a word in Hebrew. But it’s not.

So how did Armageddon get its name? –  Well, that would be with a little help from our old friend Mr. Mispronunciation: Armageddon is a corruption of the Hebrew words ‘Har Megiddo’, meaning ‘Mount Megiddo’.

Presently, Armageddon is also used as a general term for any end of the world scenario.

And for all of you Armageddon enthusiasts, here some more facts:

According to the book of revelation, Armageddon will be an event that will destroy the world that we know it. It will lead to the death of all nonichristinas.

The New Testament approach stems from Zechariah 12: 11 of the Old Testament, which tells of the Dedermon obituary in the Megiddo Valley, which as above mentioned below Megido Mountain.

One of the well-known Christian interpretations of the Armageddon event is that of a total world war in which only true believers will stay alive and continue Jesus’ practices.

The phenomenon of a total final event also exists in Judaism and is called the Gog and Magog war.

In other religions, there is also reference to a cataclysmic final event, however and in contrast, it is of unknown nature. While it could be manifested as a world war like in Christianity, it might also be realized by a huge tsunami, a super-earthquake or even an ice age that can be caused by a meteorite that starts a devastating chain of events.

Some believe that during Armageddon Jesus will rise from the dead and save his followers from the rest of the world.

Many pastors say they know when Armageddon will occur but are unwilling to share this information because they believe that in order to be saved from Armageddon, one must convert from love rather than commitment or fear.

In Christianity, after Christ’s victory over the Antichrist, the resurrection will take place and Jesus will judge all human beings, in collaboration with the angel Michael who will hold the balance. All good deeds will be weighed against bad deeds. The ‘righteous’, according to the Christian faith, will have the opportunity to return to heaven and spend time with Jesus, while the ‘wicked’ will be eternally roasted in hellfire.
