go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather
them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The Armageddon Battle is the a Spiritual battle which occurs after the End Times. It will be the war of wars. Certainly, you've seen movies, or documentaries about wars of the past that were devastating and gruesome. They will all pale in comparison.

The culmination of The Battle happens on one "great day," in one place

The Day of the Lord
God speaks through the prophet Isaiah concerning this time of reckoning:
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy
doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the
indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the
inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose
her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
The Apostle Paul speaks of the surprise of the great day:
1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so
cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden
destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they
shall not escape.
Here is a Biblical Armageddon Bible verses quest tidbit to remember ... Of
course nobody knows exactly when the end will be, but the Bible shares
with us that the Armageddon battle will be after the 7 Vials and the fall
of Babylon, then the battle of the Armageddon takes place (Revelation,
Chapter 16 through 19).
As you read above, The Biblical Armageddon battle is the Hebrew name for this place where
the battle of that great day of God Almighty will take place. On most maps
of ancient Israel, this place is called Megiddo. This happens to be in the
valley of Jezreel, so let's look to the Bible and see what we can find out
about this place.
In the book of the prophet Hosea, you'll find that God instructed Hosea to
marry an harlot, so that he would know how God felt about His people being
unfaithful to Him. He also told Hosea that in the place where the children
of Israel were told
ye are not my people, and I will not be your God,
that they would once again be told,
Ye are the sons of the living
God. The place where this reconciliation will take place is the valley
Hosea, Chapter 1
1 The word of the Lord that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri,
in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in
the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.
2 The beginning of the word of the Lord by Hosea. And the Lord
said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of
whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from
3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which
conceived, and bare him a son.
4 And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a
little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of
Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.
5 And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break
the bow of Israel, in the valley of Jezreel.
6 And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said
unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the
house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.
7 But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save
them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword,
nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.
8 Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a
9 Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my
people, and I will not be your God.
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the
sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall
come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my
people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel
be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come
up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

Armageddon Bible Verses on the Armageddon War
God explains more about this reconciliation with His people in the
book of Isaiah:
7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great
mercies will I gather thee.
8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but
with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy
9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have
sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I
sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed;
but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of
my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.
11 O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations
12 And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of
carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great
shall be the peace of thy children.
14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be
far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it
shall not come near thee.
15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me:
whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.
Always remember that God is a loving Father. His chosen people turned
away from Him and forsook His commandments, so naturally He became
angered with them, and they must endure a long period of chastening.
But like any loving parent, God loves His children to pieces and even
though He is angered with them, anyone who seeks their harm, will be
As we continue our Biblical Armageddon Bible verses adventure ... Let's
look at the words of prophet Joel, and what God spoke through him, of the
gathering of the Armageddon battle:
2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into
the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people
and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations,
and parted my land.
3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy
for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
4 Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and
all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye
recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon
your own head;
5 Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried
into your temples my goodly pleasant things:
6 The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have
ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.
7 Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have
sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head:
8 And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of
the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a
people far off: for the Lord hath spoken it.
9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the
mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into
spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather
yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come
down, O Lord.
12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of
Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you
down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the
day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall
withdraw their shining.
16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice
from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord
will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
17 So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in
Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no
strangers pass through her any more.
18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains
shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the
rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth
out of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
Since we are all God's children since the New Testament, all who are
unfaithful to Him are also doomed to the devastation of Armageddon.
1 Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste,
and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as
with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her
mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so
with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury
3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for
the Lord hath spoken this word.
4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and
fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof;
because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the
6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that
dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are
burned, and few men left.

The Armageddon Battle Explained
Here is more of the Armageddon war on the Day of the Lord prophecy ... Zephaniah is another prophet that God spoke through about The Day of the Lord.
Zephaniah, Chapter 1
1 The word of the Lord which came unto Zephaniah the son of
Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the
days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land,
saith the Lord.
3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the
heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the
wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.
4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all
the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from
this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops;
and them that worship and that swear by the Lord, and that swear by
6 And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those
that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for Him.
7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day
of the Lord is at hand: for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath
bid his guests.
8 And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord's sacrifice,
that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as
are clothed with strange apparel.
9 In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the
threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.
10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord, that
there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an
howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.
11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people
are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.
12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search
Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees:
that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do
13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses
a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they
shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.
14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth
greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a
day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day
of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities,
and against the high towers.
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall
walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their
blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver
them in the day of the Lord's wrath; but the whole land shall be
devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy
riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
Isaiah gives us yet another glimpse of this period of time:
5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come
down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, it is made fat
with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the
kidneys of rams: for the Lord hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a
great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
7 And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks
with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust
made fat with fatness.
8 For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of
recompences for the controversy of Zion.
9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the
dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning
10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof
shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste;
none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
You may have noticed during our Biblical Armageddon Bible verses trip into
the future that fire is a key ingredient in the final days before
during and after the Armageddon battle.
15 For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with
his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his
rebuke with flames of fire.
16 For by fire and by his sword will the Lord
plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.
17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the
gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the
abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.
2 Thessalonians 1:7-10
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus
shall be revealed from Heaven with His mighty Angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not
God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the
presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power;
10 When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be
admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was
believed) in that day.
When is the Armageddon War Journey
Who is at the Armageddon Battle
Let's take a few moments now as we sojourn along in our Biblical
Armageddon Bible verses trek to read what was revealed to John in the book
of Revelation concerning our question of ... When is the Armageddon battle,
then we'll look into more prophecy on the Armageddon that agrees with
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he
that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he
doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many
crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his
name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white
horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he
should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and
he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written,
King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a
loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come
and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of
captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of
them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both
small and great.
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.
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, and them that worshipped his image. These both were
cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat
upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls
were filled with their flesh.
John's testimony of his vision of the battle of Armageddon tells about
the majestic entrance that Jesus makes from Heaven with His army of
Angels. An Angel beckons to all the birds of Heaven to gather, to eat
the flesh of all those who oppose the King of Kings, after they're
slain by the Word of His mouth. It's not your everyday battle, you
see. The enemy is slain with the Words of Jesus called Truth, not with
weapons of war.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-9
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord
shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the
brightness of His coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all
power and signs and lying wonders,
Daniel describes as he sees Antichrist consumed by the lake of fire in
11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which
the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body
destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their
dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.
More about the winepress mentioned above:
17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven,
he also having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power
over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle,
saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of
the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and
gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress
of the wrath of God.
20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and
blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by
the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
Zechariah describes The Day of the Lord this way:
1 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be
divided in the midst of thee.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle;
and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women
ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the
residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those
nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of
Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives
shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and
there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove
toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the
valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as
ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah:
and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall
not be clear, nor dark:
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not
day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall
8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out
from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them
toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9 And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day
shall there be one Lord, and his name one.
10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon
south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place,
from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner
gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.
11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter
destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite
all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall
consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall
consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult
from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on
the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of
14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of
all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver,
and apparel, in great abundance.
When is the Armageddon Battle Over
After the Armageddon War
Wow, we see clearly in our Biblical Armageddon Bible verses search for
facts that as Zechariah said, and you can well imagine, there is a great
tumult, as this all unfolds. Not only is there tumult among the people,
but the world itself goes through some serious devastation. The
foundations of the earth shake and it staggers like a drunkard. Those who
try and escape the noise, are thrown into the pit.
18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise
of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the
midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high
are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.
19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean
dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall
be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy
upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall
punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the
earth upon the earth.
22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are
gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many
days shall they be visited.
23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when
the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before
his ancients gloriously.
Don't forget the Armageddon Battle Warning from the prophet Amos concerning the Day of the Lord at the Armageddon war event:
18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is
it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.
19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or
went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit
20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light?
even very dark, and no brightness in it?
The Battle of Armageddon Bible verses clearly reveal that the beast (Antichrist) and the false prophet are thrown into the
lake of fire at the end of the Armageddon battle, and after that ...
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is
the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and
set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the
thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a
