He became consul in 59 BC and then for the next 10 years he battled

Caesar was a marvelous leader and these many wars made him the most
famous and powerful man in Rome. He defeated Pompeii in a civil war
in 48 BC and became the dictator of the Roman Empire.
In 44 B.C. the Senate bestowed upon
him the title of "Imperator" which is where the word "emperor"
originates. Though he was acting as dictator, he would not allow
himself to be referred to publicly as king or emperor but "Caesar"
instead. He was assassinated in 44 B.C. by some of his close
friends, including Brutus and Cassius on the Ides of March, the
"He was skillful
with sword and horse, and had amazing powers of physical endurance.
He always was at the head of his army more often walking than
riding, and went bareheaded both in sun and rain. When he
encountered rivers too deep for wading, he would either swim or
propel himself across on an inflated skin." SEUTONIUS
Acts 23:11 - And the night following the Lord stood by
him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of
me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.

The Bible mentions a lot regarding Rome:

good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so
must thou bear witness also at Rome.
4:22 - The Lord Jesus Christ [be] with thy spirit. Grace
[be] with you. Amen. <[The second [epistle] unto Timotheus, ordained
the first bishop of the church of the Ephesians, was written from
Rome, when Paul was brought before Nero the second

1:25 - The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with your

Onesimus a servant.]>
- Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about

- After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when
he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem,

- And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered
the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to

1:17 - But, when he was in Rome, he sought me

fullness of time came, God brought forth His Son, born of a
woman, born under the law." (Gal 4:4)
The Roman road was the bloodstream of the
empire. Merchants paid taxes to Rome on all their
transactions, and they needed the roads to carry their goods
to an ever-widening market. Legionnaires marched upon them
swiftly gaining efficient access to battle. In a sense, the
roads were funding and facilitating Roman expansion.
Yet God had a higher purpose. A new kind of merchant would
soon be traversing the entire Mediterranean area, not one
who transports his treasure to the city marketplace, but one
who is a treasure, and who carries true riches, - not to
sell, but to give away freely. The transforming good news of
God?s forgiveness through Jesus the Messiah was imbedded
into the hearts of the Apostles and early believers, and God
prepared those roads for them to walk upon and lead others
into His path.
A new kind of soldier would be running these well built
thoroughfares to fight, - not flesh and blood, but a
spiritual warfare that would liberate entire civilizations
from the bondage of Satan?s tyrannical oppression and
coercion, to a Kingdom ruled by love, service and willing

s journey. With amazement, we can look back over the winding
grades of difficulty, the narrow pass of opportunity, the
choice between security or adventure, when our road divided
and we had to make the call.
Yes, all roads led to Rome, specifically the Forum, in the
ancient empire of old, where an Emperor judged the players
in the arena for their conduct before him. Our personal road
will eventually and inevitably cease at the throne of
Almighty God. It is He who must judge our travel upon this
earth, in the blinding glory of His eternal justice.
Compelled by His love, He placed sin?s damning penalty upon
His Own Son, instead of us, so that we could freely receive
the "thumbs up!" from Him who loves us beyond all measure.
