Watchman Charts of the End
This page is a collection of prophecy
charts that I created to help myself understand the events of Bible
prophecy and where they are at in the timeline of earth history.
Bible prophecy focuses mostly on events that happen in earth
space-time, and so these linear charts represent the order of events
from various places throughout scripture. All the charts on this
page have links on the images to take you on further Bible studies
and scriptures that are in the charts.
Feel free to print and/or distribute the charts, simply click on the

This chart lays out some of the Biblical prophecies from history in a
timeline that are covered in greater detail in the
HIStory, Our Future collection of Bible studies. Several areas on
the chart below can be clicked on to link to the corresponding Bible
study explaining in greater detail.
Link: In the canon of Ptolemy, the years of the period are named for
the following kings:
- 538-530 BC - 9 years of Cyrus
- 529-522 BC - 8 years of Cambyses
- 521-486 BC - 36 years of Darius Hystaspes
In putting together relevant scriptures into the timeline of
Bible prophecy, I decided I needed a chart to help visualize these
events and when scripture said they occur. The numbers in
parenthesis are numbers of days. These are from the exact-day
prophecies of Daniel and John that give the framework for the 70th
week of Daniel.
This chart focuses on timing of the
harpazo according to
the framework set in scripture defining the
time of great
This chart focuses on the last 1290 days of the 70th week of
Daniel. This time begins at the abomination of desolation and
extends to the end of the 70th week.
This chart lays out very basically the placement of the
trumpets & bowls in the timeline of Bible prophecy. If you read
through the Bible study on this topic, you can see that the seals
are separate and before the trumpets and the bowls are part of the
seventh trumpet, the third woe. As with many things related to the
coming of the end, these judgments (trumpets and bowls) increase in
frequency and intensity like birth pangs.
I created this chart to help show clearly the
division of the great tribulation, when it begins and when it ends
as well as the timing of the abomination of desolation, which starts
the great tribulation. It’s important to note that the Bible
contains very specific and precise prophesies and that them being
there and working in conjunction with other thousand-year-old
prophesies elsewhere in that collection of 66 books by 40 different
authors over thousands of years would lend some kind of importance
to what they might be saying about God’s design for our future. In
fact, when putting them all together connected by events, the
following relationships are made clear.
The beginning of the extreme persecution of God’s people begins
abomination of desolation and begins a 1290-day period of time.
The first 1260 days of that time is the length of the antichrist’s
reign and persecution of the saints Christ called the time of
Matthew 24:15-22 This is connected
to Daniel and the prophesied persecution of God’s people for that
same time that the antichrist is attacking God’s people. This is
also the same time that the dragon gives power to the antichrist and
that Jerusalem is trampled by the Gentiles (Revelation
11:1,2 - Not included in the chart above.) We know also
that the antichrist’s power and reign is taken away by Christ upon
His return in glory.
Revelation 19:11-21 This is 30 days
before the 1290 days is up from
We also see a time period also of 1260 days that cannot be
connected to the abomination of desolation because the great
tribulation begins with the
time of Jacob’s trouble, the reason Christ warned those in Judea
to flee to the mountains, only Judea is warned. We see the
reason for this attack as the dragon’s hatred for the nation of
Israel in Revelation 12:13-17 where we also see that this time
period marks a specific protection from the dragon. So that 1260
days must not begin until some time after the abomination of
desolation has happened and after
the woman, Israel, flees to the mountains to be taken to the
wilderness and protected. Since Christ returns in glory 30 days
before the 1290 days is up, I believe that the time that is cut
short for the elect’s sake is the time of Jacob’s trouble and that
protection will begin around 30 days or less after the abomination
of desolation as a result of the remaining of Israel in Judea
fleeing as warned by the Messiah.
This chart isn’t really related to timing so much as matching
historical record with symbology in Bible prophecy.
Revelation 13 and
Revelation 17 all cover multiple aspects of the
beast government and religion in the end times. This chart is my
current understanding of who these symbols in Bible prophecy
represent. As you can see it is still a work in progress. If you
have some information that may assist in completing this chart,
I would be very interested in hearing it.

is evident that the completion of the king’s pyramid was not the

abandoning their tools and other possessions in the shops and
houses . . . There are different opinions of how this first
period of occupation at Kahun drew to a close. . . The quantity,

BC Northern Israel falls to Syria by
2 Kings 17:3-6 “The majority of the inhabitants, including the
ruling class of the Northern Kingdom were deported to other
lands occupied by the Assyrian Empire, and the conquered peoples
from those lands were imported to Samaria by the Assyrians.
Thus, the Israelites of the Northern Kingdom were dispersed
amongst the nations, assimilated into new cultures, and
eventually became unaware as to their original identity. They
never returned, in mass, to the land of Israel.”
(in Akkadian Sîn-ahhe-eriba “(The moon god) Sîn has
Replaced (Lost) Brothers for Me”) was the son of Sargon II, whom he
succeeded on the throne of Assyria (705 BC–681 BC). In 701 BC, a
rebellion backed by Egypt and Babylonia broke out in Judah and was
led by Hezekiah. Sennacherib was able to sack many cities in Judah.
He laid siege to Jerusalem, but soon returned to Nineveh, with
Jerusalem not having been sacked. This famous event was recorded by
Sennacherib himself, by Herodotus, and by several Biblical writers.
According to the Bible, the siege failed, as the angel of Jehovah
went forth and struck down 185,000 men in the Assyrian camp (2 Kings
19:35). Some of the Assyrian chronicles, such as the stone carved
Taylor prism now preserved in the British Museum, date from very
close to the time.[The Taylor Prism itself has the
date “the month of Tammuz; eponym of Galihu, governor of Hatarikka” which is Tammuz, and 689 BC, according to the Assyrian Eponym List].
The Assyrian accounts do not treat it as a disaster, but a great
victory, not telling about the final outcome - they maintain that
the siege was so successful that Hezekiah was forced to give a
monetary tribute, and so the Assyrians left victoriously, without
losses of thousands of men. Part of this is indeed confirmed in the
Biblical account, but it is still debated fiercely by historians. In
the Taylor Prism, Sennacherib states that he had shut up Hezekiah
the Judahite within Jerusalem, his own royal city, like a caged

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. And here is the mind which hath
wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman
sitteth. 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. And the beast that was, and is not, even he
is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
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. These have one mind, and shall give their power and
strength unto the beast. 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. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where
the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and
tongues. 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. 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.
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which
reigneth over the kings of the earth.
What city has power over many different nations, it must be
internationally powerful and influential as religious beliefs are.
Much of history the Vatican determined kings of nations outright and
now much more muted. As I understand things now, the seven heads
represent historical heads of Gentile kingdoms that were involved
with Israel. The one “that is” would be the head of the
Roman Empire at the time of the Diaspora. Since Israel must be a nation
to be influenced by Gentile nations, it isn’t until the rebirth of
Israel that we could arrive at the seventh kingdom and head.
the Vatican is the latest incarnation of
the woman that sits on the seven mountains (riding the beast) and is
the final representation of goddess worship through the virgin Mary. The
word Babylon is the mixing of belief, something God always warned the
Jews and Christians not to do. We are to believe in One God and obey
only One God,
YAHWEH. The rider of a beast
normally controls its direction and this is how much of the pagan
religion controlled beliefs and heads of nations. However, in the end
the 10 horns hate the woman seeming to eliminate her control while they
give their power to the
I believe the seventh head is the
revived Rome, and the eighth that is of the previous seven is the
dragon-powered antichrist. Revelation 13:1-5 |
Revelation 12:13-17 That’s my quick
overview. I think the woman represents the religious/spiritual control
through history while the heads represent the political control. Up
until the end, the woman seems to dictate by beliefs but we know in the
end only one man will dictate to the world. His power comes from the
master deceiver Lucifer. Truth is stranger than fiction.
Regarding the 10 horns and related to my chart above, this NATO
chart was brought to my attention that really brought home the
“circles of power” and even has the Vatican, although with little
power, riding the top of the circle! Notice the center of power
amongst all these nations and organizations resides in 10
member-states of the WEU.
