True Word of Yahuah: Apocalypse, Armageddon and Being a Light Unto the Gentiles!
Reading the title you may wonder what these three subjects have in common. I did not know some of this information I am about to share with you. (Again, to those who pick and choose what you take away from here, I hope the message resonates more that the precision of words used. I try to always use both Hebrew and common language for those who are learning and awaking. I use what I know and value correction. However I AM called me, and I am doing HIS Will!)

: the site or time of a final and conclusive battle between the forces of good and evil: the battle taking place at Armageddon

Whom did he gather? I want to say that this verse is talking about the ruachoth of devils from verse 14.

Behold, I come as a theif. Blessed is he that watches, and guards his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

You can now tell people when they say an apocolypse is coming, to embrace it.
Another word we will examine breifly is apocrypha.

There are no results in Scripture speaking on the word apocrypha.
There are no concordance results for "apocrypha" in the KJV.
You can also browse through the various dictionaries.
Etymology of apocrypha:
late 14c., Apocrifa, in reference to the apocryphal books of the Bible, from Late Latin apocrypha (scripta), from neuter plural of apocryphus "secret, not approved for public reading," from Greek apokryphos "hidden; obscure, hard to understand," thus "(books) of unknown authorship" (especially those included in the Septuagint and Vulgate but not originally written in Hebrew and not counted as genuine by the Jews), from apo "off, away" (see apo-) + kryptein "to hide" (see crypt).
Non-Biblical sense "writing of doubtful authorship or authenticity" is from 1735. Properly plural (the single would be Apocryphon or apocryphum), but commonly treated as a collective singular.
However these words from above are in Scripture:
Apokryphos: G614 ἀπόκρυφος apókryphos, ap-ok'-roo-fos; from G613; secret; by implication, treasured:—hid, kept secret.
Strong's Number G614 matches the Greek ἀπόκρυφος (apokryphos), which occurs 3 times in 3 verses in the Greek concordance of the KJV
Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, G614 but that it should come abroad. (KJV)

1 Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden G613 wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: (KJV)
Meaning of crypt: early 15c., "grotto, cavern," from Latin crypta "vault, cavern," from Greek krypte (short for krypte kamara "hidden vault"), fem. of kryptos "hidden," verbal adjective from kryptein "to hide," from PIE root *krau- "to conceal, hide" (source also of Old Church Slavonic kryjo, kryti "to hide"). Meaning "underground burial vault or chapel in a church" first attested 1789.
G 2926 crypt κρύπτη krýptē, kroop-tay'; feminine of G2927; a hidden place, i.e. cellar ("crypt"):—secret.
Luke 11:33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, G2926 neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
G2927κρυπτός kryptós, kroop-tos'; from G2928; concealed, i.e. private:—hid(-den), inward(-ly), secret.

They the evil minions of satan try to hide the truth. If you have not read Enoch or Yasher or Baruk or my favorite Maccabees then you need to. Do not let the evil keep things hidden from you. Become an Apocalypse and Know the Truth.
