The Battle of Armageddon is supposed to take place shortly after the return of Christ and the "resurrection of the just" or more simply, God's people. It is preceeded by the "Wrath of God". It seems that this is basicly the "clean up" battle to remove the worst trouble-makers from off the earth. According to the Book of Revelation, Armageddon is tied in with the "7th vial" poured out by the angel according to the prophecy in the 16th chapter of Revelation: "And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. And the 7th angel poured out his vial into the air, and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying: It is done."(see: The Wrath of God)
This is a battle with the followers of the "beast" or "antichrist" on one side, and the supernatural heavenly forces of Jesus Christ and those He has resurrected, on the other.Revelation 19:11, "And I saw heaven opened and behold, a white horse, and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in rightness he does judge and make war." verse 14, "And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses..." verse 19, "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army." verse 20, "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast..." (see Rise of the AntiChrist and "Revelation 13" coming soon!)
It's amazing how much you hear about Armageddon, but few people seem to know anything about it. For example, did you know that this battle is predicted to take place in the Valley of Jezreel? (see map and photos below)
