The Apocalypse and Har–Magedon (Apocalypse 16:16)

“And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Har–Magedon” (Revelation 16:16)
This expression “Har–Magedon” is to be linked to a moment in the life of the prophet Elijah. This alludes to an assembly of the nations organized by the propaganda of the demons, in order to gather them to confront the Lamb, who is the King Jesus Christ: “And I saw three unclean inspired expressions [that looked] like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and perform signs, and they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty. “Look! I am coming as a thief. Happy is the one that stays awake and keeps his outer garments, that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness.” And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Har–Magedon” (Revelation 16:13–16).
This expression Har–Magedon symbolically described by a place, a world situation which will precede the “war of the great day of Jehovah”, that is to say the great tribulation. The name Har–Magedon remains enigmatic. This expression must allude to a biblical event that took place on a mountain, near Megiddo, where people gathered. It is interesting to note that a geographical encyclopedia makes the link between Megiddo, Mount Carmel and the prophet Elijah (“The Great Book of the World — Geographical Dictionary of countries, cities and sites — Ed. Selection Reader’s digest”, page 144): “Carmel, (mount), Israel. Range which extends over 22 km to the SW of Haifa and culminates at 520 m. To the SW is the Megiddo pass. In the Bible, the prophet Elijah triumphed there over the priests of the Baals”. To understand this expression, we must look for an important event that marked the life of the prophet Elijah. This account is found in 1 Kings chapter 18, where Jehovah instructs Elijah to arrange a confrontation between him, as representative of Jehovah’s worshipers, and the priests of Baal, a rival god.
