Some Biblical Characteristics of the Anti-christ/Whore of Babylon/Beast (of the Sea)/Little Horn (of Daniel 7)
Destroys three nations after Romes fall
Daniel 7:24, "And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse
from the first, and he shall subdue three kings."
The Alamannis which is now called Germany
The Visigoths which is now called Spain
The Franks which is now called France

The Anglo Saxons which is now called England

The three divisions which were plucked up where the Heruli in 493 the vandals and 534 and the Ostrogoths in 538. Justinian, the emperor, who we
see was at Constantinople, working through the general Belisarius, was the power that overthrough the three kingdoms represented by the three horns,
and the reason for their overthrow with their adherence to Arianism in opposition to the orthodox Catholic faith." - the book of Daniel, page 109
Catholic emperors of the eastern empire found ways to help the pope by eliminating three of the Arian tribes. (These "Arian type" nations would not
agree with the popes plans) The Catholic emperor Zeno (474-491) arranged a treaty with the Ostrogoths in 487 which resulted in the eradication of the
kingdom of the Arian Heruls in 492. And the catholic emperor Justinian (527-565) exterminated the Arian Vandals in 534 and signifcally broke the power
of the Arian Ostrogoths in 538. Thus were Daniels three horns - The Heruls, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths - "plucked up by the roots." -C. Mervyn

The wound was healed in 1929 when Mussolini granted the papacy back its power and papal states again.
The Roman question tonight was a thing of the past, and the Vatican was at peace with Italy... In affixing the autographs to the memorable
