Armageddon - The End of The World
The battle of Armageddon is a great, future war that will be fought at Mount Megiddo (present day Palestine) that will conclude the seven years of great tribulation. This will be the most devastating of all wars humanity will experience. All of the events during the Great Tribulation will gravitate to this decisive and grave moment when Jesus Christ returns and defeats and destroys the enemy. No one can predict when this will happen with certainty. Only that it will happen (Matthew 24:36)
Note Revelation 16, where the preparation for the battle is described in verses 12-16. Note also, chapters 17-20. This battle is the final and decisive war and it is more than just a physical war. All of the forces of good and evil will be fighting for power in hopes of prevailing over God's people and preventing the Lord's Second Coming to the earth.
The distinct difference between this and other wars is that the outcome is sure. We know who the winner is. Christ Jesus is the victor, and then establishes His rule and reign on planet earth for one thousand years.
Sincerely, Dr. Arthur Belanger
