This is adapted from a teaching on Christian radio by Warren Wiersbe. Moody Bible Radio, Chicago, Illinois.
March 2007.
We are living in the time of JUDGES today………..The world is trying to live without King Jesus, which results in chaos, sin, confusion, and every man does that which seems right to him.

Judges 17;6……..In those days [there was] no king in Israel, [but] every man did [that which was] right in his own eyes.
Jdg 18:1 In those days [there was] no king in Israel: and in those days the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for unto that day [all their] inheritance had not fallen unto them among the tribes of Israel.
Jdg 19:1 And it came to pass in those days, when [there was] no king in Israel, that there was a certain Levite sojourning on the side of mount Ephraim, who took to him a concubine out of Bethlehemjudah.
Jdg 21:25 In those days [there was] no king in Israel: every man did [that which was] right in his own eyes.
……….

Towards the end of age of the Judges (the Age of Grace, the Church Age), we have a beautiful, tender, Love story,………the Book of Ruth, which speaks of the Love story between Jesus and the Church, today.
Ruth was a gentile, like the Church……she was poor, adopted into Israel, came out of un-godliness and false religion, Ruth cleaved unto the God of Israel (Jesus), ………Ruth (the Church) is busy at harvesting (making disciples of Christ),…..Ruth obeys the words of Boaz,……….
Boaz is a Christ-figure……rich, a Godly Israelite, a Kinsman-Redeemer (like Jesus), Boaz is loving, kind, gentle, and IN LOVE with Ruth. Boaz (Jesus) purchases Ruth (Church) to be his wife.
Ruth 1;16-17
Ruth 4;13,17
………..

Saul is a picture (fore-shadow) of Anti-christ……….He is man’s choice of King over Israel (not God’s Choice).
Jacob prophesied that Shiloh (Messiah) would come from Judah…..(Genesis 49;9-11). Saul was from the tribe of Benjamin……..God never intended that Saul should start a Saul-Dynasty of Kings over Israel.
Saul tried to become a Priest-King, which was a sin. The only Priest-King in the OT was Melchizedek, who was a type of Christ………so, Saul was trying to become a priest-King LIKE CHRIST (just as antichrist will try to be LIKE CHRIST…….king/priest/God).

Saul persecuted the Lord’s Chosen Anointed (Davidic) King, David, and David’s men. Just like , the a/c will persecute Christ and the people of God.
An evil spirit came upon Saul. The antichrist will be indwelt by, and controlled by, Satan. 1 Samuel 18;10.
Both Saul and the a/c will die on the battlefield.
Both consulted witches (demons, occult). And rejected God.

………

David is a picture of Christ.
Both are born in Bethlehem.
Both are, first, rejected and despised by his brethren, later, he is accepted by his brethren. (2 Samuel 5;1-3)
Both did great exploits for God.
Both are so humble, and love God so much.
David is despised , because he is so Christ-like and humble.
……..
The focus and high point of the book of Ruth is the Wedding, which we Christians (today) long for.
Notice,…….the Wedding occurs BEFORE the appearance of Saul (the Anti-christ). Which may be a hint that the rapture will be BEFORE the appearance of the a/c.

Saul (desired) is a type of the antichrist. …….1 Samuel 10;18-19
The people rejected the True God, and welcomed Saul, a King, a mere man.

Verse 23 ……….Saul was tall and handsome…………he was attracive to the people …….in a fleshly, carnal, earthly way.

Verse 6……..the Spirit of the Lord came upon Saul…………later , a demon would possess him.

1 samuel 9;21……..Saul started with humility……….later, his brash, reckless, un-godly zeal would be sinful.

1 samuel 13;13………god foreknew that saul would be dis-obedient to the Lord, so, the Lord predicted that the Messiah would be from the Judah tribe…………..
David and Christ was from judah.
Saul was from Benjamin.

Verse 14……..David was “A MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART”………the heart speaks of love………no-one loved god more than david,…….(except Christ Jesus)

1 samuel 15;1-35
verse 11……….saul dis-obeyed God

verse 17………..saul was small and humble,……..when god made him king of israel

verse 22……..to obey is better than sacrifice…………saul didn’t obey god’s word

verse 23……..god rejected saul as king

1 samuel 16;11…………david was the YOUNGEST……which is code for HUMILITY

david was despised because he was christ-like (humble, loving)

verse 13………the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward……
in everything david did,…..god gave david VICTORY…….

Verse 14…..an evil spirit from the Lord tormented and troubled saul……(just like the a/c)

1 samuel 19;18-24………the Spirit of the Lord came upon saul and saul’s men, so that they stripped and prophesied all day and all night, against their will (they wanted to kill David)

don’t be surprised if the a/c preaches the Gospel.

Saul = the anti-christ

1 samuel 20;1……….david is sinless (just like Christ)

1 samuel 28;7………saul (the a/c) prays to the dead (necromancy)……..divination, occult

jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj

Solomon (peaceful)……..is a type of Christ in the Millennial Reign…….(solomon before his apostacy)

1 Chronicles 22;9……..a reign of peace and quietness
Solomon was RICH, POWERFUL, WISE,
He made silver in Jerusalem as plentiful as dust……….he was rich in gold.

Psalm 45
1 samuel 17;42
song of songs
these describe Solomon’s appearance (perhaps Jesus’ also)

the kingdom of israel was in it’s GOLDEN AGE.
Large treasures

2 chronicles 9;1……..the queen of sheba came from afar to hear from Solomon’s wisdom

verse 8……..god loved israel, and established israel FOR EVER

verse 13…..solomon received 666 talents of gold in one year

verses 20-28……silver was as dust……..all the neighboring kings brought gifts and tribute into jerusalem,…….and the kings of the earth sought out solomon for his wisdom

this is a TYPE OF THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST

2Sa 1:24 Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you in scarlet, with other delights, who put on ornaments of gold upon your apparel.

King Saul is a TYPE of the GREAT A/C OF THE TRIB.

the pope is a fore-runner..TYPE of the THE A/C……..(ot the false-prophet of Revelations).

the RCC is the form of the BABYLON THE GREAT world-wide-religion of the Trib.

the pope gives his Cardinals and bishops “SCARLET AND PURPLE” robes to wear.

King Saul foreshadowed this SCARLET in 2 Samuel 1;24

all of those popes, cardinals, bishops, priests of the RCC………wear dresses, just like women………………this is the fulfillment of the SHADOW of the women-wearing-scarlet in this bible-verse in 2 Samuel.

Rev 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

WHORES ARE FAMOUS FOR WEARING FLASHY DRESSES, JEWELRY, MAKE-UP

Rev 17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

ALL THE WORLD HAS SLEPT WITH THE WHORE

Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

THE WHORE IS CLOTHED IN SCARLET DRESSES, GOLD, JEWELS………..JUST LIKE 2 SAMUEL 1;24

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

THE RCC HAS MURDERED MILLIONS OF NT SAINTS

THE RCC IS THE FINAL , AND MOST PERFECTED FORM , OF THE BABYLON THE GREAT.

THE RCC IS THE WHORE OF SATAN……….CHURCH OF SATAN

THE VIRGIN CHURCH IS THE BRIDE OF CHRIST……….CHURCH OF GOD

Rev 17:7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Rev 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
Rev 17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
Rev 17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
Rev 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
Rev 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

saul = a/c in the trib
david = christ in trib
david’s men = christians in trib
david’s men never suffered defeat ,,,,,,,,,,God always gave them VICTORY

VICTORY (in NT times) doesn’t always mean Physical victory over Physical enemies……read Hebrews 11………..some of those HEROES OF FAITH never got a physical miracle

(quoted from Kim):
IF these Great tribulation christians have the same quality of faith that David’s men had, then they should have a physical victory as well….unless they are called similarly as some of the NT saints who were martyred. Many will be caught off guard and will have to make the ultimate sacrifice in securing a genuine faith too…but this is not comparable to GREAT faith which they could have been walking in to begin with. With that said however, I believe there will be many protected (in the wilderness).

updated on dec 19, 2014…………I am thinking that , in the Trib, some saints will study the scriptures, use the KEYS TO THE KINGDOM to bind evil spirits and loose the good spirits (angels).., and they will survive the Trib,,,,,,,,,other saints will fail to win against the a/c and they will be beheaded……..

In Jesus’ Name, I bind every demon+enemy+disease,,,,,,and I loose all the angels to provide for,and protect, all saints……we NT saints can do anything that was done in the Bible AND MORE!…….JESUS SAID THAT WE WOULD DO MORE THAN HE DID!

PRAISE CHRIST!
CHRIST HAS EMPOWERED US TO SURVIVE THE TRIB!
WE ARE DAVID’S (CHRIST’S) MIGHTY MEN!
DAVID’S MEN WERE THE MEN OF ISRAEL WHO OWED MONEY, REJECTED BY SOCIETY, DIS-SATISFIED, CRIMINALS, ETC……( a description of NT saints in the Trib).
PRAISE CHRIST!
