A major political battle is raging over the pending construction of a new international airport in Megiddo in the Jezreel Valley, the site of the future Biblical, Last Days Battle of Armageddon.
The residents of this area say that the airport would bring significant harm to the agricultural land reserves of the Jezreel Valley and it is one of the worst elements of Israeli development policy.
Known as the "Bread Basket of Israel" the Jezreel Valley is not only vital to the agricultural needs of the Jewish state, but opponents to the planned airport say it would destroy the Biblical significance of the area and have a significant impact on tourism in the area as well.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The Israeli government may want to construct an international airport in the Jezreel Valley, but Bible prophecy reveals something quite different for that location in the Last Days.
Since the beginning of the modern day state of Israel, the Jezreel Valley has been a major source for all the food stuffs that Israelis have consumed. The region of the Jezreel Valley has also been a key tourist attraction with Nazareth, home of Jesus Christ, on the edge of the valley and Megiddo, the site of 26 civilizations of the Jewish and Biblical peoples. With this proposal for the construction of an international airport in the valley, Israel's agricultural and tourism industries will be harmed significantly.
This aside, Bible prophecy calls for the Jezreel Valley to be the site of the Battle of Armageddon with the armies of the world gathering in this 1,000 square mile area to fight against the Messiah, Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:11-17 and Zechariah 14:4-5. This army, possibly 100 million soldiers, led by Satan, Antichrist and the False Prophet, will be defeated by Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:17-19. This Battle of Armageddon will bring an end to war, Jesus Christ will setup His eternal Kingdom at the conclusion of this battle.
International airport in the Jezreel Valley or not, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
