As there was the shadows first, and then the substance
So we have seen the Type first, and then the anti-type.
I have shown you types of The Christ, now, the time is to see the type of antichrist. It is written vividly at The Holy Bible.
Our Lord Jesus said :” Be careful! I have told you everything ahead of time. “, Mark 13:23,NET.
What the Bible say about this man?
First: We are told “Cain was of that Wicked One (1 John 3:12), and the antichrist will also
Second: Cain was a religious hypocrite. He worshiped God as Abel, his brother, did. But when The LORD refused his offering, he was very wroth, he became angry and he killed Abel brutally. Cain can see Abel offering which God accepted, he can follow it, but denial was most accepted. So anyone denies The LORD that one will be –look the point clearly this is not about ‘knowing not’ The LORD–the antichrist, 1 John 2:22.
Third: Cain was a ruler over Abel (Genesis 4:7), he murdered him, and so the antichrist will be the ruler over men, and will murder sons of God
Forth: After he murdered Abel, he lied (Genesis 4:9). antichrist also will be called “The Lie”.
Fifth: God’s judgment descended upon Cain (Genesis 4:10). And antichrists blasphemous delusions will be quickly dispelled
Sixth: Cain was maid to exclaim (Genesis 4:13), such indeed will be the awful portion meted out to antichrist (Revelation 19:20)
First : Lamech means powerful, antichrist shall be (Revelation 13:4), will be powerful govermentally, mighty in his person, and lawlessness.
Second: remind you, Lamech was decendant of Cain, evil line
Third: he was the seventh from fallen Adam, as though to intimate that the cycle of depravity was completed in him. So the Antichrist will be not only the culmination of satanic craft and power, but as well, the climax of human wickedness—the Man of Sin
Forth :He was also a murderer
Fifth: He was filled with pride, arrogant, self-importance
Sixth: in the fact that the very next thing recorded after the brief notice of Lamech is the birth of Seth (the one from whom, according to the flesh, Christ descended) who set aside the line of Cain—for on his birth Eve exclaimed, “God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel whom Cain slew” (Gen. 4:25)— thus we have a beautiful foreshadowing of the millennial reign of the Lord Jesus following the overthrow of the Antichrist.
First: Nimrod means “The Rebel”, The Lawless One, who shall oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God (2 Thess. 2:4). And who shall “stand up against the Prince of princes” (Dan. 8:25)
Second: Nimrod was decendant of Cush, Cush was a son of Ham, who was curst by Noah. antichrist will come from the evil line.
Third: He was a mighty one, the first in the world.
Forth: it is also added, “Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord” which means that he pushed his designs in brazen defiance of his Maker. The words “mighty hunter before the Lord” are found twice in Genesis 10:9. This repetition in so short a narrative is highly significant. If we compare the expression with a similar one in Genesis 6:11,—”The earth also (in the days of Noah) was corrupt before God”—the impression conveyed is that this “Rebel” pursued his impious designs in open defiance of the Almighty. The contents of Genesis 11 abundantly confirm this interpretation. In like manner, of the Antichrist it is written, “And the King shall do according to his will, and he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god (ruler), and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods” (Dan. 11:36). Fifth, Nimrod was a “Man of Blood.” In 1 Chronicles 1:10—”And Cush begat Nimrod; he began to be mighty upon the earth.” The Chaldea paraphrase of this verse says, “Cush begat Nimrod who began to prevail in wickedness for he slew innocent blood and rebelled against Jehovah.” This, coupled with the expression “a mighty Hunter before the Lord,” suggests that he relentlessly sought out and slew God’s people. As such, he accurately portrayed the bloody and deceitful Man (Ps. 5:6), the violent Man (Ps. 140:1).
Fifth, Nimrod was a King—”the beginning of his kingdom was Babel” (Gen. 10:10. Thus he was King of Babylon, which is also one of the many titles of the Antichrist (Isa. 14:4). In the verses which follow in Genesis 10 we read, “He went out into Assyria and builded Ninevah, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,” etc. (Gen. 10:11). From these statements it is evident that Nimrod’s ambition was to establish a world empire.
Sixth, mark his inordinate desire for fame. His consuming desire was to make for himself a name. Here again the antitype marvelously corresponds with the type, for the Man of Sin is expressly denominated “King over all the children of pride” (John 14:34).
First: The history of this man is recorded in Genesis 14 which is a chapter of deep interest to the student of typology. The chapter opens with the words “And it came to pass in the days” of.” This is an expression which occurs six times (in the Hebrew) and always marks a time of trouble ending in blessing—cf Ruth 1:11; Isaiah 7:1; Jeremiah 1:3; Esther 1:1; 2 Samuel 21:1″ (Companion Bible). Such is plainly the case here. The first half of Genesis 14 depicts Tribulation conditions, and this is followed by a scene foreshadowing millennial glory. The time when Chedorlaomer lived is the first point in the type. His history is recorded just before the first mention of Melchizedek, the priest-king, who came forth and blessed Abraham—an unmistakable foreshadowment of Christ in millennial glory, blessing Israel.
Second, the name of this man is highly significant. Gesenius, in his lexicon, says of the word ‘a handful of sheaves’…perhaps its true etymology should be sought in the ancient Persian.” The latter is doubtless correct, for “Elam,” of which Chedorbaomer was king (Gen. 14:1), is the ancient name for Persia. Col. Rawlinson searched for his name on the tablets of ancient Assyria, and there he found that his official title was, “Ravager of the west”! Thus was he a true type of the coming one who shall wade through a sea of blood to his coveted position as Emperor of the world.
Third, it is indeed remarkable to find that just as Revelation 13:1 shows us that the empire of which the Antichrist will be the Head (see our notes on this verse in Chapter 11) includes within it the territory and perpetuates the characteristics of the earlier empires (Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome), so dominions: “And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations.” Now “Shinar” is one of the names of Babylon (see Daniel 1:2); “Elam” is the ancient name of Persia’ “Ellasar” is translated “Hellas” in the Sept., which is the ancient name of Greece; while “Tidal king of the nations” evidently stands for Rome, the last of the world empires.
Fourth, but what is even more striking, is the fact that in Genesis 14:5 Chedorlamoer is seen at the head of the kings mentioned in Genesis 14:1. They act as his vassals, and thus bow to the superiority of this one who was evidently a King of kings.
Fifth, Chedorlaomer was a warrior of renown. He was the Attila, the Napoleon of his day. He defeated in battle the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and brought them into subjection and servitude (see Genesis 14:2-4). Later, they rebelled, and gathering his forces together he went forth, vanquished, and slew them (Gen. 14:9, 10). Thus did he foreshadow the Destroyer of the Gentiles (Jer. 4:7).
Sixth, in Genesis 14:12 we read, “And they took Lot, Abraham’s brother’s son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.” This prefigured the persecution of Israel by Antichrist and his subordinates in a coming day. Finally, we learn how that Abraham and his servants pursued Chedorlaomer and his forces, and that “Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him” were slain “in the kings dale” (Gen. 14:17), which strikingly adumbrated the future overthrow of Antichrist and the kings who shall be with him, in the dale of Megiddo (see Revelation 19:19).
First, Pharaoh was king of Egypt which, in Scripture, is the lasting symbol of the world. In like manner, the one whom he so strikingly prefigured will be Head of the world-kingdom.
Second, the Pharaoh of Exodus came from Assyria (Isa. 52:4); so also will the Antichrist first rise in that land.
Third, Exodus 1 presents him to our view as the merciless persecutor of the Hebrews, embittering their lives by hard bondage.
Fourth, he is next seen as the one who sought to cut off Israel from being a nation, giving orders that all the male children should be slain in infancy.
Fifth, he was the blatant defier of God. When Moses and Aaron appeared before him and said, “Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let My people go, that they may hold a feast unto Me in the wilderness,” his arrogant reply was, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go?” (Ex. 5:1,2).
Sixth, God’s two witnesses performed miracles before Pharaoh (Ex. 7:10); so, too, will God’s two witnesses in the Tribulation period work miracles before the Beast (Rev. 11:6,7).
Seventh, Pharaoh had magical resources at his disposal (Ex. 7:11), as the Antichrist will have at his (2 Thess. 2:9).
Eighth, Pharaoh made fair promises to the Hebrews, only to break them (Ex. 8:8,15). In this, too, he foreshadowed the Antichrist in his perfidy and treachery toward Israel.
Ninth, he met with a drastic end at the hands of God (Ps. 136:15).
Tenth, he was overthrown at the time that Israel started out for the promised land: so Antichrist will be cast into the Lake of Fire just before Israel enters into everlasting possession of their promised inheritance. In all of these ten respects (and in others which the student may search out for himself) Pharaoh was a striking and accurate type of the Antichrist.
First, Abimelech signifies “father of the king.” Gideon, deliverer of Israel, was his father. But his mother was a concubine, and this name was given to him, no doubt, for the purpose of hiding the shame of his birth. Looking from the type to the antitype—”Father of the King”—all attention to the satanic origin of the Antichrist.
Second, Abimelech slew seventy of his own brethren (Judg. 9:5), and was therefore a bloody persecutor of Israel.
Third, Judges 9:6, 22 tell us that he was “king over Israel.”
Fourth, it is significant to note that he occupied the throne at the time of Israel’s apostasy (see Judges 8:33, 34).
Fifth, it is also most suggestive that we are told he commenced his career at the stone (Judg. 9:6), or pillar, which Joshua erected in Ebal (facing Gerizim), the mount where all the curses of a broken law were announced—Deuteronomy 11:29; 27:4, 12, 13; Joshua 8:30.
Sixth, he was a mighty warrior, a violent man (see Judges 9:40-50, and cf. Psalm 140:1 for the Antichrist as such).
Seventh, he was slain by the sword (Judg. 9:54 and see Zechariah 11:7; Revelation 13:3 for the antitype).
First, In at least ten respects Saul foreshadowed the Antichrist. Almost the first thing told us about Saul is that he was “from his shoulders and upward higher than any of the people” (1 Sam. 9:2, which is repeated in 10:23). As such he fitly prefigured the coming Super-man, who in intelligence, governmental power, and satanic might, will so tower above all his contemporaries that men shall exclaim, “Who is like unto the Beast?” (Rev. 13:4).
Second, Saul was king of Israel (1 Sam. 10:24), so also will the Antichrist be.
Third, Saul was a priest-king, blatantly performing the office of the Levite (see 1 Samuel 13:9, and cf. Ezekiel 21:25,26 R. V.).
Fourth, the time of his reign was immediately before that of David, as that of the Antichrist will immediately precede that of David’s Son and Lord.
Fifth, he was a mighty warrior (see 1 Samuel 11:11; 13:1-4; 15:4; 7:8).
Sixth, he was a rebel against God (1 Sam. 15:11).
Seventh, he hated David (1 Sam. 18:7,8,11; 26:2, etc.).
Eighth, he slew the servants of God (1 Sam. 22:17,18).
Ninth, he had intercourse with the powers of evil (1 Sam. 29).]
Tenth, he died by the sword (1 Sam. 31:4).
First, his name means “Soothsayer” which at once connects him with the powers of evil.
Second, he was a giant, and thus, like Saul, prefigured the Super-man.
Third, he was the enemy of Israel.
Fourth, his consuming egotism was displayed in his blatant challenge, “I defy the armies of Israel” (1 Sam. 17:10).
Fifth, the mysterious number 666 (the number of the Antichrist) is connected with Goliath. Note the three sixes. (a) He was six cubits high (1 Sam. 17:4). (b) Six pieces of armor are enumerated—helmet, coat of mail, greaves, target, staff, and shield (1 Sam. 17:5-7). (c) His spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron (1 Sam. 17:7).
Sixth, he was slain by the sword (see 1 Samuel 17:51).
Seventh, he was slain by David—type of Christ. In each of these respects he foreshadowed the Antichrist.
First, the meaning of his name is very significant. “Absalom” means “father of peace.” A careful reading of his history reveals the fact that, again and again, he posed as a man of peace, while war was in his heart. So the Antichrist will pose as the promised Prince of peace, and for a time it will appear that he has actually ushered in the Millennium. But ere long his violent and bloody character will be revealed.
Second, Absalom was the son of David, and therefore a Jew.
Third, but Absalom was a son of David by Maacah, the daughter of the Gentile king of Jeshur (2 Sam. 3:3). So, too, will the Antichrist be a veritable king among men.
Fifth, Absalom was a man of blood (2 Sam. 13,etc.).
Sixth, Absalom sought to obtain the kingdom by flatteries (2 Sam. 15:2-6); cf. Daniel 11:21,23.
Seventh, he cloaked his rebellion by a pretense of religion (read 2 Samuel 15:7,8).
Eighth, he was the immediate cause of the faithful followers of David being driven from Jerusalem into the wilderness (2 Sam. 15:14-16).
Ninth, he reared up a pillar unto himself (2 Sam. 18:18), which clearly foreshadowed the image which the Antichrist will cause to be set up unto himself.
Tenth, he met with a violent end (2 Sam. 18:14).
