Megiddo is a tell (mound) in northern Israel known for its historical, geographical, & theological importance, especially under its Greek name Armageddon. Megiddo is strategically located at the head of a pass through the Carmel Ridge overlooking the Jezreel Valley from the west. The Book of Revelation mentions an apocalyptic military amassment at Armageddon, a name derived from the Hebrew "Har Megiddo" meaning "Mount of Megiddo". 'Armageddon' has become a byword for the end of the age.
*ISRAEL~this is part of the gateway+entrance to Megiddo that was built by King Solomon+his workers TEN CENTURIES before Christ!! Incredible to think that you can walk upon a stone street that was laid more than 3,000 yrs ago by one of Scripture's notables. But in Megiddo history goes back even further than that. There are currently 26 levels of civilization that have been discovered on Tel Megiddo + it overlooks the plain where Scripture says Armageddon will take place...
