I wish there were a topic page on this forum for historical links to Bible prophecy.
Maybe Chris can tackle that suggestion.
BTAIM, did you know that the Beast (Antichrist) will have many things in common
with both Hitler and Napolean?
Just to let you know, there were many well-meaning Christians 200 years ago who thought Napolean
was the Antichrist mentioned in the Bible.
Afterall, in 1812, Napolean dominated Europe, there were wars happening & breaking out around the world, not just Europe. There was a horrifyingly powerful earthquake along the Mississippi.
A terrifying comet seen in the skies.
Likewise, in 1939-1945 many Christians thought Hitler was the Antichrist.
Actually, both Napolean and Hitler have a lot in common with the coming Antichrist.
Napolean ruled France, first, but he was NOT born in France (Corsica was where he was born).
Hitler ruled Germany, first, but he was NOT born in Germany (he was born in Austria).
The coming Antichrist will rule three European kingdoms, first.
(but he will NOT be born in either)
Napolean Bonaparte failed to have a successor (offspring of his loins) take over his imperial throne.
Hitler failed to have a successor (offspring of his loins) take over his power.
The Antichrist will also fail to have an successor from his loins.
Napolean conquered most of Europe, failed to invade Britain, and invaded Russia.
Hitler conquered most of Europe, failed to invade Britain, and invaded Russia.
I believe the Antichrist will do likewise.
Napolean's troops carried out many atrocities.
Hitler's troops did likewise.
The Antichrist's troops will do worse.
Napolean started out as a corporal in the French army.
Hitler became a corporal too.
The Antichrist I believe will likewise hold that rank briefly.
