Megiddo is a hill in Israel, located 90 km north of Jerusalem and 31 km southeast of the city of Haifa. In 2005, the ruins of Megiddo were considered a World Heritage Site by Unesco.
In ancient times Megiddo was an important city, appearing even in Egyptian hieroglyphs, most likely because it had an important strategic position, dominated as a primary means of communication in the Jezreel Valley. It was one of the major stations on the road that followed the armies of Egypt towards Syria.
It is a valuable archaeological site, a hill with 26 layers of ruins of ancient settlements, known for its historical, theological and geographical reasons.
As told in the Bible, this place, the Jezreel Valley, will take center stage pass Armageddon or the final battle between the forces of light, directed by Jesus Christ, and of darkness, led by Satan or the Antichrist ( Revelation 16:16, Revelation 19:11.) The word Armageddon comes from the Hebrew expression meaning Mount Megiddo. While there is not a mountain called Mount Megiddo, there is a mount created by the accumulation of different layers of archaeological remains in the ancient city of Megiddo. The mount of Megiddo is located on a plain famous for its historic battles, such as Megiddo and two more in the years 609 A.C. and the battle fought between England and the Ottoman Empire in 1918.
And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.
