I am (again) not entirely clear what it is you're trying to so. But it
looks to be a bit the same as your other question: you're trying to resolve
all kind of semantics in the parser. This is not something the parser
(parser rules, if you will) should be doing. You let the parser create a
(abstract) syntax tree and when this is done, you walk through your tree
and check if the nodes in your tree have the proper/expected value (i.e.
you evaluate the tree).
As suggested earlier: better do a bit of reading on ANTLR because I don't
think you're on the right path if you think ANTLR can be used in the way
you're trying to tackle your problem at this moment.
