I have literally been there done that and it was so quiet you could have heard a squirrel rustling in the underbrush if there had been any. Armageddon is a place in Israel, Har-Magedon, meaning “Mountain of Megiddo.” Are you kidding me? I thought it meant the “end of the world” as we know it. It doesn’t and when I went with my family we were the only ones there! It’s a historical spot and there’s not much there unless you stand and study the white soil and see the remnants of the ancient horse stables that are low indentions and a bit of rock remnants and there’s a deep stairway that leads to a well. It’s quite uplifting and gives one faith to know it’s just a place in the desert with a gift shop and a sweet young woman tending it. Armageddon was a battleground during Old Testament days. Today it’s a quiet tourist destination. Let’s keep it that way.
