There are four main characters in the account; Abraham, Abraham's son Isaac, Abraham's unnamed servant, and Rebekah. In the narrative Abraham sends his servant to his brethren to find a wife for his son.

The similitude is that of Abraham being a picture of God sending the Holy Spirit, the unnamed servant as the Holy Ghost does not speak or promote himself, to obtain a wife for his Son.

John 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

The servant finds Rebekah and preaches the attributes and glories of his master Abraham, God, and Isaac, his only begotten Son,

Genesis 22:2  And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

Hebrews 11:17  By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

Rebekah, the Church, believes the testimony of the servant by faith not having ever seen the Son is carry away to be with the Son, a picture of the rapture.

This narrative in history is an outline of God's plan. Not every detail is covered here, but there is a lot of Old Testament left to consider. But, as you can see, if we will diligently study we will find the revelation of God's doings in the histories of the Bible.
