The Antichrist by Arthur W. Pink
5. He will be a military genius
He will be endowed with the most extraordinary powers, so that |he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people| (Dan.8:24). Before his exploits the fame of Alexander and Napoleon will be forgotten. None will be able to stand before him. He will go |forth conquering and to conquer| (Rev.6:2). He will sweep everything before him so that the world will exclaim, |Who is like unto the Beast? who is able to make war with him?| (Rev.13:4). His military exploits will not be confined to a corner, but carried out on a vast scale. He is spoken of as the man who will |shake kingdoms| and |make the earth to tremble| (Isa.14:16).
