  1. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Heb 9:27)
    The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. (Psalms 34:18)
    When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Mark 2:17)
    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

  2. Someone: « Ane why did Germany United? Because they wanted a strong Germany? »
    « No, French revolutionaries ideas »
    « But wasn’t that in the end of the 18th century? »
    « I’m speaking of the second French Revolution »
    « Wait what »

    Here's a fun fact regarding the German navy.
    To fund and maintain the Navy Wilhelm II introduced a new form of tax – The Champagne Tax.
    This special form of tax has never been dismissed ever since. So in a sense we Germans still pay for the emperor's Navy whenever we buy a bottle of champagne 😀

  4. Holy Roman empire- France win war and turn it into the Confederation of the Rhine which is a puppet and doesn't include Prussia and Austria
    Russia defeat Napoleon, then Austria and Prussia rise up against French rule and establish the German Confederation (basically the Holy Roman Empire).
    Prussia establish the Zolverrein which excludes Austria.
    There was a war between Prussia and Austria which Prussia won after tensions.
    Willems cousin was offered Spanish thrown and Napoleon 3rd asked them to decline. Bismark edited Ems Telegram making it seem like they disrespected Napoleon and provoked them into declaring war. Prussia were able to make it appear that France were aggressors and so got support of other German states.
    Germany won war and declared German Empire (unified Germany) and gained Alsace Lorraine from France.
    When Willem 2nd became Emperor he dismissed Bismark and sought to increase both his and Germany's prestige. He did this by large Naval build up which forced Britain, France and Russia to form an alliance (Triple Entente)

  5. Friedrich Wilhelm should've accepted the crown offered by Frankfurt parliament. Germany would've done much better being a confederacy instead of an empire. Prussia lived by the sword and died by it.

  6. Kill all non Germans or put them to death camps – this was theirs ambitious politics, for now they act as nothing happened and want to erase history but is a matter of time and they will start 3 World War
