By the time we get to Genesis 25, we see our fourth set of brothers where one perpetuates the line of Christ, and the other is against Christ. Seth, Shem, Isaac, and Jacob are all in the Messianic line. Cain, Ham, Ishmael, and Esau are all “types” of Antichrist.
Ham is the progenitor of North African (Libyan, Ethiopian, Egyptian) and Middle Eastern (Canaanite, Palestinian) Muslims.
Ishmael is half Semitic (Abraham) and half Hamitic (Hagar).
Muhammad traces his own line back to Ishmael.
Esau is Semitic, but marries a Hamite and produces half-Hamitic offspring.
Ham’s grandson, Nimrod, was a hunter (archer). Ishmael was an archer (hunter). Esau was a hunter (archer). Antichrist (the white horseman in Revelation 6:2) is an archer with no arrows.
Thus, the cursed line of Ham continues to be the line of the “seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15), while the blessed line of Shem continues to move toward Christ. When Jacob steals Esau’s birthright, The Bible once again clearly shows the enmity between the Semitic (Jews) and Hamitic (Muslims) people.
Another interesting “Law of First Mention” can be see here. The first mention of “heel” is in Gen. 3:15 describing the battle between the seed of Satan (Antichrist) and seed of the woman (Christ). The second occurs here as Jacob (Israel) grabs Esau (Antichrist) by the heel just after being born (Gen. 25.26). Jesus tells us in John 13:18 that Judas (Antichrist) will lift his heel against Christ.
Furthermore, Esau is called Edom in Gen. 25:30. Rome (Catholics) was founded by descendants of Esau. Psalm 138:7-8 links Edom (Rome) to Babylon (Iraq) as attackers of Israel. Esau is a type of Antichrist who unites Catholics and Muslims (because modern day Iraq is about 100% Muslim) against the Jews (and by proxy, Christians). Beware of the 33 year old Syrian-Jew who brings Islam and Catholicism together!
As I have mentioned before, Alexander Hislop lays out the historical case that the Catholic Church borrowed heavily (that’s an understatement) from the traditions of the Nimrod worshiping Babylonian “mystery cults.”
The woman (a city or empire) who rides “The Beast” (Antichrist) is Rome. Therefore, the Antichrist will be Pope.
This is further evidence that “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Rev. 17:5) is the Catholic Church.
