... hiding under a prison!

Sharon Shouab, Megiddo prison commander, told Israel's Channel Two television that the site had been discovered amid planned work to build a new security wing.
Israel's Channel Two reported the discovery was made months ago but "was kept secret until now." The find has important implications for the Body of Christ ...
Megiddo is Hebrew for Armageddon and overlooking the watchtowers, barbed wire and walls which encircle the prison lies the hill of Armageddon, the site which Christian teachings say will herald the final battle before the coming of the messiah.
