Armageddon

by Micha F. Lindemans
The battlefield described in the Bible (Revelation 16:16) as the scene where the kings of the Earth, the forces of good and evil, were to assemble for battle on the day of divine judgment. The name is possibly a Greek transliteration of a Hebrew word. The term may mean "the mountain of Megiddo", referring to Mount Carmel, overlooking the plain of Megiddo, where many battles were fought there between the Israelites and their enemies during the biblical period (Judges 5:19).
