Bible Meaning: Hill (city) of Megiddo, the mount of Megiddo
Strong's Concordance #G717

The Megiddo part of Armageddon means "cut off" or slaughter. The city, located in the valley of Jezreel, was given to the tribe of Manasseh (Joshua 17:11) as an inheritance in the Promised Land. Previous to it being conquered it was a Canaanite royal city (Joshua 12:21).

Scripture states that it is in Armageddon (the valley of Jezreel where Megiddo is located) where man's last war will occur. The world's armies, gathered by the Antichrist (a human possessed by Satan the devil), will fight the return of Jesus Christ as he is coming back to the earth.
