Armageddon is a war in the middle east, yes or no?

Armageddon: Not a War in the Middle East

Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

This passage is a Second Coming battle between God and Satan's forces. It has nothing to do with the Middle East or Israel.

by Joe Crews

Some have felt confused because much of the Old Testament terminology is carried over into the New Testament description of the church - words like kingdom, nation, Israel, temple, Jerusalem, Zion, tribes of Israel, etc. Even Christ said to the Pharisees, "The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,(literal Israel) and given to a nation (spiritual Israel) bringing forth the fruits thereof." Matthew 21:43. This is one reason the futurists and dispensationalists believe the book of Revelation pertains to the literal Jew in modern Israel. But there is no cause for such confusion.
