Exodus Echoes in Revelation
This backdrop provides and anticipates the clear parallels to the antichrist figure. Revelation 13 is especially important. Like Pharaoh, he claims worship and god-like status. Like Pharaoh he persecutes the people of God and seems to be overcoming them. Like Pharaoh he has his false prophets, who are especially represented in Rev. 13 by the main false prophet figure, who also does signs and wonders like Pharaoh’s magicians. In both cases, the victory belongs to God: the troops of the Pharaoh drown in the sea and Israel is delivered, and in Revelation 19 the anti-messiah (the “beast”, along with his false prophet) is defeated in the last battle and then the devil is thrown into the lake of fire.
