    Armageddon means the gathering. Revelation is revealing or to make known. They, those that have gone to Jerusalem that Are worshippers of Satan whom have gathered there will be flattened at the 7th trump after the two witnesses lay dead in the street.

    As far as 7 mtns people bring up Rome (city on 7 hills) as Babylon, but really a 1-world system sits on 7 hills (continents, i.e. whole world). But if you need it literal, Israel ALSO sits on 7 hills. Mt. Zion, Mt Olivet and so on. Rev 11:8 shows us where 2 witnesses' bodies are lying, "where also our Lord was crucified." Jerusalem has always been focal point. Will be heart of 1-world system.
