Armageddon (Greek αρμαγεδδων; [armageddôn] also spelled as Har-Magedon in some modern English translations), is the final climactic battle (or Campaign) between God, also known as YHWH Elohim through the person of the Messiah, and Satan, whose name means 'adversary' and which is also known as the Devil, through the person known as the "Beast", written in the Book of Revelation in the Christian New Testament, or more generally, an apocalyptic catastrophe.

The word Armageddon in Scripture is known only from a single verse in the Greek New Testament[1], where it is said to be Hebrew, but it is thought to represent the Hebrew words Har Megido (הר מגידו), meaning "Hill of Megiddo" or "Valley of Megiddo".

Bible references

In Revelation, God commands seven angels to pour "seven vials of the wrath of God" upon the Earth in judgment.[2] Armageddon then follows the pouring of the sixth vial (or bowl): The Annunciation - the Angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will bear Jesus (El Greco, 1575) An angel is an ethereal being found in many religions, whose duties are to assist and serve God. ...

"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. 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. 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. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."[3]

Past fulfillment

In historical fact, a gathering of the Roman army had occurred at Megiddo as a staging ground for one of the Roman army's assaults on Jerusalem in AD 67. This is consistent with the preterist interpretation that the seventh bowl of wrath[4] refers to events culminating in the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. However, one indication that the book predicts a future event is the mention of an army from the east of 200 million[5], a number that would not have been possible in any battle of that period. The Roman army was a set of land-based military forces employed by the Roman Kingdom, Roman Republic and later Roman Empire as part of the Roman military. ... Preterism is a variant of Christian eschatology which holds that some or all of the biblical prophecies concerning the Last Days (or End Times) refer to events which actually happened in the first century after Christs birth. ...


Another interpretation is that the sudden death of Josiah, a religious reformer in his early 30s who showed great promise of renewing a theocratic Jewish state, resulted in myths of his triumphant return. Josiah is said to have died at the hands of the Egyptian pharaoh Necho II just as the Davidic monarchy was in ascendancy after a period of disarray and corruption. His death precipitated the decline of a strongly monotheistic faction in Judea in the years prior to the Babylonian captivity. The idea that a Davidic king would return someday to fight and win at Megiddo is an example of the myth of eternal return.

The Hebrew Bible, The Book of Kings and the Books of Chronicles

Megiddo is mentioned various times in the Hebrew Bible. Other books such as The Book of Kings and Chronicles describe a battle that took place there in 609 B.C.[6]This battle resulted in the death of Josiah, a young and charismatic ruler whose quick and untimely death precipitated the decline of the dynasty of David and may have inspired stories of the return of a Messiah from this lineage. The valley is marked by the presence of the archaeological mound or tell, representing the accumulated ruins of Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements that flourished between 5,000 years ago and 650 B.C.

In his discussion of Armageddon, Doctor J. Dwight Pentecost has an entire chapter titled "The Campaign of Armageddon", in which he discusses Armageddon as a Campaign and not a specific battle, which will be fought in the Middle East. To quote his writing: In the military sciences, a military campaign encompasses related military operations, usually conducted by a defense or fighting force, directed at gaining a particular desired state of affairs, usually within geographical and temporal limitations. ... For other uses, see Battle (disambiguation). ... A map showing countries commonly considered to be part of the Middle East The Middle East is a region comprising the lands around the southern and eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea, a territory that extends from the eastern Mediterranean Sea to the Persian Gulf. ...

"It has been held commonly that the battle of Armageddon is an isolated event transpiring just prior to the second advent of Christ to the earth. The extent of this great movement in which God deals with “the kings of the earth and of the whole world” (Rev. 16:14) will not be seen un less it is realized that the “battle of that great day of God Almighty” (Rev. 16:14 [7] is not an isolated battle, but rather a campaign that extends over the last half of the tribulation period. The Greek word polemo, translated “battle” in Revelation 16:14, signifies a war or campaign, while machē signifies a battle, and sometimes even single combat. This distinction is observed by Trench, (see Richard C. Trench, New Testament Synonyms, pp.301-2) and is followed by Thayer (see Joseph Henry Thayer, Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, p. 528) and Vincent (see Marvin R. Vincent, Word Studies in the New Testament, II, 541). The use of the word polemos (campaign) in Revelation 16:14 would signify that the events that culminate in the gathering at Armageddon at the second advent are viewed by God as one connected campaign." (p.340)

Dr. Pentecost then discusses the location of this campaign and mentions the "hill of Megiddo", and other geographic locations such as "the valley of Jehoshaphat" using Joel 3:2, 13 [8]as reference; “the valley of the passengers” quoting Ezekiel 39:11; a mention of the "Lord coming from Edom or Idumea, south of Jerusalem, when He returns from the judgment"; and Jerusalem itself (Zech. 12:2-11; 14:2) (p. 341) Richard Chenevix Trench (September 9, 1807 - March 28, 1886) was an Anglican archbishop and poet. ... Joseph Henry Thayer (November 7, 1828 - November 26, 1901), United States biblical scholar, was born at Boston. ... The Valley of Jehoshaphat is mentioned once in the Hebrew Bible, in the Book of Joel 3:2, 3:12 (AV). ... Edomite redirects here. ...


Pentecost then continues in his writing to further describe the area involved:

"This wide area would cover the entire land of Palestine and this campaign, with all its parts, would confirm what Ezekiel pictures when he says the invaders will “cover the land”" (Ezek. 38:9, 16)[9]. This area would conform to the extent pictured by John in Revelation 14:20.”[10]

In mentioning the “participants in the campaign”, Dr. Pentecost (p.342) lists the following: A 2003 satellite image of the region. ...

1) The ten kingdom federation (see also, European Community) of nations under the Beast
2) The northern federation consisting of Russia (see also, Gog and Magog) and her allies
3) The kings of the East, the Asiatic peoples from beyond the Euphrates
4) The King of the South, a north African power (p. 342)

Dr. Pentecost then outlines the biblical time period for this campaign to occur and with further arguments concludes that it must take place with the 70th week of Daniel. The invasion of Palestine by the Northern Confederacy “will bring the Beast and his armies to the defense of Israel as her protector.” He then uses Daniel to further clarify his thinking: (Dan. 11:40b-45).[11] Gog and Magog redirect here. ... The Prophecy of Seventy Septets (or literally seventy times seven) appears in the angel Gabriels reply to Daniel, beginning with verse 22 and ending with verse 27 in the ninth chapter of the Book of Daniel (Scherman, Rb. ...


Again, events are listed by Pentecost in his book: (p. 356)

1) "The movement of the campaign begins when the King of the South moves against the Beast-False Prophet coalition (11:40),[12] which takes place “at the time of the end.
2) The King of the South is joined by the Northern Confederacy, who attacks the Wilful King by a great force over land and sea (11:40). Jerusalem is destroyed as a result of this attack (Zech. 12:2),[13] and, in turn, the armies of the Northern Confederacy are destroyed (Ezek. 39;[14] Zech. 12:4)[15].
3) The full armies of the Beast move into Palestine (11:41) and shall conquer all that territory (11:41-42). Edom, Moab, and Ammon alone escape. . . .
4) . . . a report that causes alarm is brought to the Beast (11:44) . . .(Rev. 16:12)[16]
5) The Beast moves his headquarters into the land of Palestine and assembles his armies there (11:45).[17]
6) It is there that his destruction will come. (11:45).

After Armageddon - further discussion apart from Pentecost

After the destruction of the Beast at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the promised Kingdom is set up, in which Messiah will rule for a literal 1,000 years, along with the Saints. A final test is given. Satan is loosed "for a season" and goes out to deceive the nations, specifically, Gog and Magog. [18] The army mentioned attacks the Saints in the New Jerusalem, they are defeated by a judgment of fire coming down from Heaven, and then comes the Great White Throne judgment, which includes all of those through the ages [19] and these are cast into the Lake of Fire, which event is also known as the "second death". Pentecost describes this thusly:

"The destiny of the lost is a place in the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20; 20:10, 14-15; 21:8). This lake of fire is described as everlasting fire (Matt. 25:41;[20] 18:8[21]) and as unquenchable fire (Mark 9:43-44[22], 46, 48)[23]), emphasizing the eternal character of retribution of the lost." (p. 555)

The last two chapters of Revelation, [24] deal with the New Heavens and the New Earth.


Bahá'í faith

As part of the overall theology of the Bahá'í Faith, Bahá'í literature and research interprets the fulfillment of the expectations surrounding the Battle of Armageddon in three ways, all of which have passed. [25] This article is about the generally recognized global religious community. ...


The first interpretation deals with a series of tablets written by Bahá'u'lláh, founder of the Old Faith, authored to be sent to various kings and rulers. The very act of the Promised One addressing temporal powers with criticisms is a thunderous event. Shrine of Baháulláh Baháulláh (ba-haa-ol-laa Arabic: Glory of God) (November 12, 1817 - May 29, 1892), born Mírzá usayn-`Alí (Persian: ), was the founder of the Baháí Faith. ... The Promised One is a common term in Bahai Faith which is used to refer to Bahaullah. ...


The second interpretation relates to the detailed events near the end of World War I of the Battle of Megiddo (1918) ("Armageddon") - a kind of literal fulfillment wherein World Powers were in battle. Specifically, General Allenby's victory at Megiddo, which prevented the Ottoman Empire from crucifying 'Abdu'l-Baha, then the head of the Bahá'í Faith, is viewed by Bahá'ís as having been the literal Battle of Armageddon. “The Great War ” redirects here. ... Combatants British Empire Australia India New Zealand United Kingdom  France French Armenian Legion Arab insurgents  Ottoman Empire  German Empire Commanders Edmund Allenby Otto Liman von Sanders Strength 12,000 mounted troops, 57,000 infantry, 540 guns 3,000 mounted troops, 32,000 infantry, 402 guns Casualties 782 killed, 382 missing... Field Marshal Edmund Henry Hynman Allenby, 1st Viscount Allenby GCB GCMG GCVO (April 23, 1861 - May 14, 1936) was a British soldier and administrator most famous for his role during World War I, in which he led the Egyptian Expeditionary Force in the conquest of Palestine and Syria in 1917... Ottoman redirects here. ... `Abdul-Bahá Sir `Abdu’l-Bahá Abbas Effendi (May 23, 1844 - November 28, 1921) commonly known as `Abdu’l-Bahá, was the son of Baháulláh, the Prophet-Founder of the Baháí Faith. ... This article is about the generally recognized global religious community. ...


The third interpretation reviews the whole progress of the World Wars (though these can be viewed as one process in two phases), and their derangement of the means and norms of the world before and after.


A brief history of this religion may be found in this news story concerning Israel.[26]


Jehovah's Witnesses

See also: Christian eschatology

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Armageddon is the battle when Satan unites the kings of the Earth against God's appointed King, Christ. Thus, in their particular translation of the Bible, known and used solely by Witnesses as "The New World Translation", the Book of Revelation says that it is the war of the great day of Jehovah Almighty. Unlike many Christian groups, Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that an individual 'Antichrist' will be involved. Satan himself will move the kingdoms of the world to wage war on God's chosen people. Revelation says that "expressions inspired by demons" cause the kings of the entire inhabited Earth to gather together for the war of the great day of God the Almighty (Revelation 16:14). But then, the "King of Kings and Lord of Lords" because of his righteousness will defeat them for the glory of the Almighty God. (Revelation 17:12-14) - The Witnesses believe it is evident from this text that this war is not one of nation against another with nuclear, biological, or other weapons of mass destruction, since it says that the kings of the Earth "gather together" against Christ. It is also evident that there is no way that all of the armies of the world could gather around the relatively small area that is Megiddo in modern-day Israel. Finally, Revelation 16:16 calls Har-Mageddon (Mountain of Megiddo)(mountain of the assembly of troops), "the place" where these kings are gathered for this final showdown.

Since the Mountain of Megiddo is not a literal place, they feel it is fitting the Bible uses Megiddo as the "symbolic" place of gathering of all the kings of the Earth where they will try to do battle against God and his forces. This action on the part of the kings of the Earth is provoked by expressions and signs inspired by demons. (See Revelation 16:13)


Jehovah's Witnesses believe the collective action to persecute God's chosen people on earth is what finally triggers this war. Ezekiel 38 prophecizes that Gog, king of Magog will collect an army of many nations to attack God's people, believing them to be vulnerable and unprotected. God responds by causing them to fall one against another's swords; he strikes them with pestilence, floods, hailstones, fire and sulphur. The chapter ends with God declaring that the nations "will have to know that I am Jehovah". Book Of Ezekiel is rapper Freekey Zekeys debut album and debut on Diplomat Records/Asylum. ...


Armageddon is followed by the establishment of God's kingdom over the earth — a period commonly referred to as "Christ's Millennial Reign", when "Satan is bound for a thousand years" (See Rev. 20:1,2). The final judgement and purification of the earth's sin occurs at the end of the Millennium, when Satan is "loosed for a little season" (20:3, 7-9) and allowed to "go out to deceive the nations ... and gather them to battle" against "the camp of the saints and the beloved city". When Satan loses this battle he is finally cast into the "lake of fire and brimstone" (representing complete, eternal destruction, Rev 20:14). Those who join him in this battle will, likewise, be eternally destroyed. The Jehovah's Witnesses believe a prelude to Armageddon will be the attack on all religions by the United Nations very soon under their own laws and statutes left to be put into effect.

Rastafari movement

Main article: Rastafari movement

According to the Rastafari, it is Haile Selassie who appears in the Book of Revelation. Armageddon (or rather "Amagideon") is a slightly different theological concept, meaning not so much a specific battle, but rather the general state the entire world is in now, and has been getting progressively deeper in since 1930, and especially since 1974. However, Selassie's role in the Second Italo-Ethiopian War is in many ways seen as a fulfillment of some prophecies. Haile Selassie I The Rastafari movement, or Rasta, is a cultural value system that accepts Haile Selassie I, the former Emperor of Ethiopia, as God incarnate, whom they call Jah. ...

Italian troops fortify a position in Abyssinia Lasting seven months from 1935-1936, the Second Italo-Abyssinian War is often seen as a precursor to World War II and a demonstration of the inefficiency of the League of Nations. ...


Seventh-day Adventists

Seventh-day Adventists have, as their interpretation, that the battle of Armageddon will take place after the thousand-year period mentioned in the Book of Revelation. The righteous will dwell with God in Heaven, and the wicked are judged. This is a post-millennial viewpoint. The Seventh-day Adventist (abbreviated Adventist[1]) Church is a Christian denomination which is distinguished by its observance of Saturday, the seventh day of the week, as the Sabbath. ... A millennium (pl. ... Visions of John of Patmos, as depicted in the Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. ...


According to this account, Christ and his saints (and the Heavenly Kingdom they now reside in) will come down to Earth, shielded from the wicked. Christ will then raise the wicked dead, and Satan will prepare them to engage in one final conflict between good and evil. Satan and his followers will attempt to overthrow Christ's followers, but he will be overcome by the power of Christ. Under His command, God destroys Satan and the wicked once and for all with an overwhelming fire. The Earth will be cleansed by fire, purged of all evil, then, according to the final two chapters of Revelation, the earth will then be made new and restored to its original state before sin entered into the world. Christ and His redeemed saints will be declared victorious. As is the norm with interpretations of Biblical prophecy, it is debatable whether or not the Seventh-day Adventist interpretation is adequately supported by the Bible.
