Watchman Bible Study Guide
This page is a list of Bible studies I have done by topic. They lay out
the bigger picture as it all relates to the coming times and what is going
to happen according to the Bible as I understand it. I don’t claim
to have it all figured out in regards to Bible prophecy, but I believe the
Bible does and so I work to rely on the Bible to interpret the Bible. I
go into how I approach Bible study
here. God gave us
One Word, as there is only One Christ, Yeshua ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah),
and He is the Word made flesh. John 1:1-5 So we as the body of Christ guided
by the head that is Christ should have all we need to be of one mind written
in God’s Word when taking Him at His Word.
I have tried to link to terms in each Bible study the first time they
come up, so please take advantage of the links and the resources they contain!
It is important when discussing anything for all parties to have the same
thoughts in mind when using definitions to explain things. These definitions
come from the Holy Bible at their foundation and in researching the Biblical
definition, I’ve kept scripture at the foundation, believing that
everything we need to know God put there for us to understand. Amos 3:7
| Proverbs 25:2 I welcome any Biblical correction you may discover in your
own search for Truth. Please
let me know!
Proverbs 1:7; 22-33
The fear of
the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and
instruction... How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and
the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn
you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will
make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused;
I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at
nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh
at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear
cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when
distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me,
but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not
find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear
of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled
with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay
them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso
hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear
Topical Bible Studies
God - There are lots of sites that go into detail on who the Judeo-Christian
God is. I am just touching on those here. To know Him,
read His Word, the Bible. The following are the three
personages of the One True God. How can they be three yet One? Begin
by understanding how
is the voice of the spirit realm.
YAHWEH (Father) - Matthew 11:27,
All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth
the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save
the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Yeshua HaMashiach (Son) - God manifest as a human male born
from the nation of Israel almost 2,000 years ago. His name is Jesus,
or in Hebrew Yeshua, meaning salvation.
Rauch HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) - The Holy Spirit is our comforter
sent by Christ to make known all things. John 14:26
Christians - This is always a good place to start. Understand what
a Christian should be according to scripture. This is hardly a completed
study, but I add to it as I find scriptures and time.
the Source - Can we trust the Bible? What are its origins? What
version should we use? These are all important if you take God seriously
because His connection to teach you His ways is through His Word
and the guidance of the Holy Spirit if you ask.
Are we gods? - The New Age movement has a lot of self-focus,
but understanding Hebrew and our place in God’s plans reveals
the true meaning.
Importance of Obedience - Yeshua said that if we love Him, we
will obey Him. This is how we know Him.
Church Symbolized in the Old Testament - The menorah, the oil,
the Spirit and the bride. Is there a common connection and is the
menorah symbolic of the church?
Bride of Christ
Christian | Church | - Who is the bride of Christ? What
does it mean to us as Christians?
Marriage Supper of the Lamb - What is this as opposed to the
marriage of the Lamb? How does it fit into the timing?
The Elect & The Saints - A closer look at these terms defined
in relation to Bible prophecy.
Baptism - Is baptism necessary? What is it?
End Times Reasons - A growing list of reasons why I believe we are
in the last days.
End Time Players - Who are the main personalities of the coming
end of the age?
The Beast (antichrist, man of sin, son of perdition) - This
is the eventual head of a political system symbolized by seven heads
representing kingdoms through history with the last head (current)
having 10 horns. More on that here. However, this political system
is going to be headed by one man and so the beast is the kingdom
that does what the head says. The beast is the kingdom and the man
that controls it.
Mark of the Beast - Without this mark, nobody will be able
to buy or sell in the antichrist’s kingdom.
False Prophet - Who is this beast from the earth? How does this
relate to the 12th Mahdi, who is expected to ascend from a well
Woman Who Rides the Beast - This is an unfaithful woman the
Bible says is a city that rules over the world. She sits on seven
mountains and is drunk on the blood of the saints. Related scripture
identify this symbolic woman as Jerusalem, sitting on Mount Zion
Two Witnesses - These two will stand in Jerusalem during the
The 24 Elders - Who are the twenty four elders seen several
times in heaven?
Restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2 - Who is the restrainer that
is holding back the revealing of the antichrist?
The 144,000 - This is a very specific group of people defined
from scripture for us.
Woman of Revelation 12 - Who is the woman of Revelation 12?
It’s important to let the Bible itself interpret the symbology
for us so that we don’t deviate from what God intended to
say. What does the Bible say about this woman representing Israel?
How does that relate to the
70th week of Daniel?
Olivet Discourse - Often misunderstood because of the similar language,
explore the differences between the two similar accounts in Matthew
and Mark compared to the version in Luke. How does that affect interpretation
of Bible prophecy? There are subtle differences that can skew prophecy
if they aren’t understood.
Great Tribulation - This time is unparalleled in all of history.
Examine just what Christ was referring to according to the Bible. Is
it 7 years, 3 ½ years, or less? Who are the subjects of this great tribulation?
Why is it called great tribulation? These questions and more are answered
straight from the Bible to give a scriptural definition to what Christ
was speaking about when He said these words to the disciples. Matthew
Israel - Is Israel a part of God’s design for the end? Actually
Israel is central to God’s design and their acceptance of Him
must come before He returns in glory.
Feasts of Israel - Christ’s first coming was all fulfilled
spring feasts of:
Teruah (Rosh Hashanah/Trumpets),
(Feast of Tabernacles) await their ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s
second coming and beyond. They fulfill God’s dealing with mankind
in this 7,000 year time before eternity. There are some other notable
Jewish memorial days as well.
- Marks the time around the abomination of desolation?
Tisha B’Av - The 9th of Av marks the destruction of both
temples and also Christ’s return in glory at the end of the
70th week of Daniel.
The Order of Revelation - Is the book of Revelation chronological?
This study is a quick overview of what Revelation covers and in what
Daniel’s Visions and Prophesies - Daniel and John are both
integral books on Bible prophecy. This goes into that study.
Daniel 2 - Nebuchadnezzar’s dream ~ The statue of various
Daniel 7 - Prophecy that covers historical kingdoms as well
as the final world kingdom of the antichrist.
Daniel 8 - Covers part of earth’s history with Alexander
the Great and the Persians, fulfilled 100% accurately.
Daniel 9 - The home chapter of Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy.
Daniel 9:24 and Timing - Just how large a span of time does
Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy cover? How do we know that
it isn’t already past?
Daniel 11 - Antiochus IV, a type of the future antichrist, performed
the first abomination of desolation inciting the Maccabean revolt
around 168 BC.
Daniel 12 - This chapter is the source for some specific timing
(to the day) centered on the abomination of desolation.
John's Vision of Revelation
Watchman Charts - This is a collection of charts I have made to
better visualize aspects of Bible prophecy in a timeline of earth history
and visually relate scriptures on this timeline. They help me to understand
God’s plans and I pray they help you as well. They have links
embedded in the charts to follow up with more information.
First Resurrection - The resurrection of the just. Exactly what
does it mean? The Bible only uses the term “first resurrection”
once in scripture and it has caused much confusion amongst prophecy
scholars. I’ve taken a common-sense look at just what the Bible
actually says about this time and how it fits into the prophetic timeline
The Harpazo (“day
of Christ”) - Found in scripture under the term harpazo,
this describes the snatching away of the bride of Christ.
Feel Guilty about the harpazo? Don’t. Rather, understand what
Pre-Tribulation Harpazo - I used to hold this belief, here I’ll
share why that changed.
Addressing Imminence - Is the coming of our Lord such that
no event will happen between now and then? I do not think that
is a Biblically sound argument. I address why here.
Pre-Wrath Harpazo - This is my term of choice for my reading
of the general timing of the harpazo. This
is my belief. Click the link to see why.
Post-Tribulation Harpazo - The list of problems with this belief
is long and clear.
Day of the Lord - A day of darkness and gloom, this begins the shaking
of the heavens, the wrath of God.
Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls - Are these events chronological? Do
they occur sequentially, or are they somehow connected? I believe the
Bible answers these questions, which are addressed here.
The Messianic Kingdom - What is the “millennium?” What
will it be like?
The Times and Fullness of the Gentiles - What are the fullness of
the Gentiles and the times of the Gentiles? Are they the same?
Ezekiel 38, 39 - The Bible talks of an invasion by Scythian (Southern
Russia), Turkish, and Persian (Iran) troops among other nations. God
destroys them with fire and brimstone in the mountains of Israel. The
Bible says that this event will be seen by the world and God will be
recognized on account of it. There are many views on this and I attempt
to bring them together to understand this prophetic event.
Joel’s Prophesies - Joel also speaks about
the end-times and the day of the Lord.
Zechariah’s Prophesies - Zechariah has some things to say
about the end-times too. Zechariah 14 suggests the possible future division
of Israel to create a PLO state according to Rabbi Eddie Chumney.
The Temple Mount - Is the Temple Mount in Jerusalem significant
to end-time prophecy?
Creation vs. Evolution - Take a look at Darwin’s own questions
about his theory and what science actually shows.
Institute - The mission of Discovery Institute is to advance
a culture of purpose, creativity and innovation.
The Center for Science and Culture is a Discovery Institute
program which supports research by scientists and other scholars
challenging various aspects of neo-Darwinian theory, as well
as developing the scientific theory known as intelligent design.
Discovery's Center for Science and Culture has more than 40
Fellows, including biologists, biochemists, chemists, physicists,
philosophers and historians of science, and public policy and
legal experts, many of whom also have affiliations with colleges
Creation Science Evangelism - Dr. Kent Hovind (Dr. Dino) has
an excellent set of 8 DVDs for sale, or see them free here.
First and Second Adam - Adam wasn’t deceived. What does that
show us about the relationship between Adam and Christ, the second Adam?
New Jerusalem - What exactly is New Jerusalem? What does it look
like? What is it for? These questions are all answered in the Bible
for us, discover your mansion in the Father’s house today!
Thought: The Voice Of The Spirit Realm - I believe thoughts are
the voice of the spirit realm. They can’t be seen or felt by anyone
unless we take action on them in the physical. A Biblical look at thoughts
and they’re influences. What voices do you listen to? If you want
to hear God, listen for that still, small voice. This means quieting
UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) - Does the Bible talk about flying
saucers or alien spacecraft? Is this really spiritual manifestations
of fallen angels in our skies? Is there advanced technology that counters
gravity and known physics?
The Fallen Angels - Does the Bible talk about aliens? By definition,
aliens would be anything that is not native to this planet. The Bible
says that beings, bene Elohim, came down and left their first
estate, or dwelling to pervert God’s creation and produce Nephilim.
(Genesis 6:1-4 | Jude 1:6)
The Nephilim (Giants of the Bible) - This fits in with the Alien
and UFO definitions and how that fits in to Bible prophecy, history,
and our future. The Bible talks about these giants and archaeological
evidence has uncovered some amazing finds that mainstream science doesn’t
want to touch.
of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
I believe this title is exactly what Bible prophecy is. It is all His
(Christ’s) story from the Bible that is wrapped around history, His
story, and our collective future. We are the bride of Christ awaiting
coming to gather us to Himself. What He has given us in Bible prophecy
are pearls of
wisdom. So what better title for a Bible study which walks the church through
the promised understanding of the end times written in Bible prophecy? Understanding
was meant for the time of the end. Daniel 12:4-9 | Daniel 9:24 In addition
to the reasons
I believe we are at the end, this study shows why I believe
the time is now!
My agenda is to see people I may or may not ever hear from get closer
to Christ than before, seeing the truth and reality of the Living Word manifest
in our time! Christians have been anticipating this time since Christ first
ascended. I’m a firm believer that the Bible is 100% true and inerrant
and I take it seriously. Where symbology is used, I look to the rest of
the whole council of God for the interpretation of that symbology.
I’m still learning as we all are, so I encourage you to become
an active participant in the Word and spread the Gospel to those willing
to hear. The souls are hungry for God, let us not hide the light God has
given us. Read the Gospels again and pay attention to whom Yeshua brings
His message to. We must recognize our brokenness before we will ever ask
God to fix it. And we must recognize and turn from our sins before He will
His Law is there for a reason, to highlight love for God and love for
each other. Break the Law, you are not acting in God’s Love.
So I pray the result of this study is that you get close to Yeshua in
quiet and alone and just open your heart to Him in worship. Listen for the
still small voice. Let Him fill you up, and then go out and share the abundance
of what God gives you, His Love. The Lord bless your study of His Word.
To YAHWEH be the Glory!
The Bible studies below are intended to complement the studies above
and provide greater detailed understanding from the Bible about the future
that God wants all who believe in Him to know.
70 Weeks of Daniel - The scope of this prophecy and it’s tie
in with the end-times make it a good place to start. Many of the terminologies
covered above in those studies tie into the time this prophecy covers.
The Fourth Kingdom - This brings into account current politics which
line up with Bible prophecy regarding the coming antichrist and his
kingdom here on earth. It's a comprehensive overview of the
visions of Daniel and John regarding both historical and future
events intricately tied to what Yeshua marked as the arrival of the
Exact Day Prophecies - Numbers can’t be misinterpreted and
the words surrounding them give us scope. This is the foundation of
mapping out the chronology of the 70th week of Daniel.
2300 Days - Daniel 8:13-17 speaks to this time period from the
abomination of desolation by Antiochus IV Epiphanes that ended with
the rededication celebrated today as
1335 Days - Daniel 12:12 blesses those who wait this amount
of time from the abomination of desolation. (45 days after the end
of the 70th week.)
1290 Days - Daniel 12:11 tells us the time from the abomination
of desolation to the end of the 70th week.
1260 Days - There are several verses that talk of this time
period, and they are not
all the same time!
360 Day Prophetic Year - When understanding the precision of
Bible prophecy, you must understand the number of days in a prophetic
year or the details of times will be wrong.
Ezekiel’s 430 Days - A study by Chuck Missler on Ezekiel 4
that connects the judgments of Israel to the 14,000 days study!
14,000 Days - Three times in history this number of days has separated
two related events. This is a generation.
Scriptural Stumbling Blocks in Bible Prophecy - There are scriptures
that are commonly accepted one way, but I believe the Bible explains
further to provide more depth and reveal some amazing details.
Mirrors in Prophetic Timelines - It became apparent in studying
the specific timelines given in scripture that there are patterns all
through them. This page is an overview of those patterns.
These are key scriptures that are foundational to my beliefs and the
Luke 17:24-37 - This passage lays out the general timing of the
harpazo to “in the night” of the abomination of desolation
2 Thessalonians 2:1-5 - This is the primary passage that negates
a pre-trib harpazo because our gathering to Christ comes after the abomination
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 - This is a primary pre-wrath passage stating
that we who are watching are not appointed to God’s wrath.
Luke 21:29-36 - This is another primary pre-wrath passage stating
that we can escape the time to come and stand before the Son of man.
Matthew 24:29-31 - This passage is key to understand in relation
to the timing of the sixth seal.
17, Amos 1, & Zephaniah 2 - I believe deal with Israel attacking
Damascus bringing Iran, Turkey, Russia, and other Muslim nations against
Israel from the North. This is the God/Magog invasion of Israel that
God wipes out in the mountains of Israel. Watch for this sign!
Zechariah 2 - God’s promise of Israel’s redemption to
Him. Gog/Magog is placed before the millennium in the chapter.
Mystery of Iniquity - This is the works of deception and lies that
lead away from the foundation of God’s Word toward the kinds of
doctrines the Word of God says would come in the end-times. It begins
to reveal the vast conspiracy to lead mankind away from the God who
created and loves them.
History of the Mystery of Iniquity - A look at ideologies that
were introduced and brought about negative long-term effects leading
to the spiritual decline of society today prepared to accept the
Israel: The Apple of God’s Eye - An overview of Israel’s
importance and central nature to Bible prophecy.
Islam & the 12th Mahdi - Islam has it’s own identity laid
out in its holy books. These include prophesies about the future they
expect to unfold.
European Union - The
Revived Roman Empire with 10 horns (member-states of the WEU)
United States of America - There are many history lessons I was
never told regarding the goals some people had for America. Learn about
the darker side of the New Atlantis and how that plays into the end-times.
New World Order - This is the common term used to describe the global
governance being worked to bring the world together. Other methods are
being used as well, but this focuses on the basics of the political
Health Watch - GMOs, Vaccines, Mercury and Fluoride issues are addressed
revealing some possibilities for why cancer, disease, autism and ADD
are on the rise. What we put into our bodies affects our bodies and
sometimes scientific guesses are made with incomplete knowledge. What
are we putting into our bodies?
Earth Changes - One of the elements of these earth changes is
global warming. However, I include other things like earthquake,
volcanoes etc. I believe it is one of the other methods being used to
unite the world under a common cause. This helps ease into globalism.
I believe there is another reason for it however and it has little to
do with mankind’s pollution although everything to do with its
Apostasy - The falling away from Truth. This is a necessity for
Bible prophecy to come to pass and leads eventually to the world worshipping
Technology - Ever since WWII technology has skyrocketed to bring
us to today with computers, radio and television. It is leading to developments
like a global cashless society and identification and tracking systems
that will be utilized to control the population in the New World Order.
Conspiracy? You bet it is, on the grandest scale of Biblical proportions,
but it sneaks up much more subtly than that.
UFOs & The Nephilim - I’ve never personally seen a UFO
or encountered extra-terrestrial beings as some state to have. It’s
the sheer number and video evidence that has led me to believe this
is a reality as well as Biblical history stating this to be the case.
Alien or angel, makes no difference as neither are created from the
dust of the earth as humanity and so are extra-terrestrial in nature.
Genetic manipulation and alien hybrids are in the Bible, read Genesis
Mars / Cydonia - Is there evidence of intelligence on Mars?
There is of a global cataclysm that may have occurred at the time
of the flood. If Lucifer walked amongst the stones of fire (planets),
could it be that far-fetched? You might be surprised. While not
conclusive, given the coming deceptions we should try to see how
this fits in with the Biblical account of the history of the solar
system and its inhabitants.
Creation vs. Evolution - Did we evolve or are we part of a created
universe governed by God? I believe science proves creation and indeed
the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork.
But don’t take my word for it, examine the facts.
