We have heard the term, Armageddon, thrown around in many doomsday genre movies, but few know what it actually means. Most of the time, the term is used by laymen in reference to the final battle of good and evil. However, Armageddon actually refers to the place that the final battle of the flesh age takes place. The first syllable, ar-, or har, is Hebrew for ‘mountain’ or ‘hill’. The rest of the word, -mageddon, comes from the Hebrew word, megiddon, which means ‘place of gathering’ or ‘place of rendezvous.’
