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.

HIStory Our Future History Chart

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

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 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.

Timing of the Two Witnesses


The Beast of Revelation

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.

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.” The Pyramid Builders, pages 195, 199.

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. Wikipedia
705-681 BC Sennacherib
(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.[citation needed][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. Wikipedia
