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.

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.
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
Related Scriptures in the Prophetic Timeline
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.
Harpazo Timing From Framework of 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 tribulation.
Framework of the Last Half of the 70th Week
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
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
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
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
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 Beast of Revelation
This chart isn’t really related to timing so much as matching historical
record with symbology in Bible prophecy.
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.

Egypt: 1445 BC Pharoh of Exodus?
Chronology of Egypt and Israel - “There is every
indication that Kahun continued to flourish throughout the 12th dynasty
and into the 13th dynasty . . . It is evident that the completion of
the king’s pyramid was not the reason why Kahun’s inhabitants
eventually deserted the town, 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,
range and type of articles of everyday use which were left behind in
the houses may indeed suggest that the departure was sudden and unpremeditated.”

722 BC Northern Israel falls to Syria
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.
705-681 BC Sennacherib
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 bird.

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
man of sin.
I believe the seventh head is the
current leadership of Europe,
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.
