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 () icon to the right of the chart title to open an acrobat file and print from there.
HIStory, Our Future: History
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.
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.
Framework of the Last Half of the 70th Week of Daniel
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.
The Seals, Trumpets & Bowls
This chart lays out very basically the placement of the seals, 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.
The Timing of the Abomination of Desolation
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 at the 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 great tribulation. 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 Daniel 12:11-13.
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. Zechariah 13:8,9
The Two Witnesses
What I believe this shows us is that the two witnesses are killed some time before the seventh trumpet. Given what scripture says about Apollyon and how he comes from the bottomless pit, I believe it is possible that is when the two witnesses are killed. If that is at least five months before Christ returns in glory, that would look something like this.
This chart isn’t really related to timing so much as matching historical record with symbology in Bible prophecy. Daniel 2, Daniel 7, 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.
