Armageddon: Occurs only in
(Revelation 16:16) (R.V., "Har-Magedon"), as symbolically
designating the place where the "battle of that great day of God
(Revelation 16:14) shall be fought. The word properly means the
"mount of Megiddo." It is the scene of the final conflict between
Christ and Antichrist. The idea of such a scene was suggested by the
Old Testament great battle-field, the plain of Esdraelon (q.v.).
