The Timeline of the World - phase two

Getting down to detail about the end of the age

This has been an interesting exercise and the result published here is only my personal sorting of texts. It might be more beneficial for you, or a group to which you belong, to carry out the same exercise. This should provoke some interesting discussions.

Prophecies concerning the end, linked to a deduced timeline of events still to come.

Prophecies concerning the end linked to a possible timeline.

This is how this was created

Texts printed and cut into slips

Drawing the oval on a piece of heavy lining paper, using using the string and drawing pins method to guide the pencil

Drawing the oval to arrange the text


Prophecies arranged around the oval to contain the timeline of events to come.

Prophecies arranged around the oval

Then the timeline drawn in the centre, starting from Abraham and (severely compressed to the death of Messiah, then to 1948, then (largest scale) the "seven years", finally (compressed) Messiah's 1,000 year reign.

The texts were then linked to the most likely point for them to be fulfilled.

Prophecies concerning the end linked to a possible timeline.

Earth's timeline . A closer look at the end with a collection of relevant scriptures

This timeline focuses on the end in more detail than the wider overview of phase one,

Since the conclusions are mine and you might very well not agree with them, I am suggesting that you might carry out phase two for yourself, or even better, in a study group.

I can imagine this exercise provoking a lot of discussion as to where to place the texts so that they can best be linked to the point on the timeline.

The scriptures I have used are listed below the end of page banner ready to be printed and cut into strips.

Obviously, you could compile and print your own set of passages, or this set in your preferred translation. (these are from the CJB)

As can be seen, this approach works for the prophecies, not including Revelation. But Revelation seems to produce as many passages again and they could not be fitted in as well

I plan to try producing a second oval background sheet for the Revelation passages, possibly with the oval cut out so that it could be overlaid on to the same timeline.

My effort will be here Timeline 3 - Revelation.

A few leftover thoughts / questions.

As the camera cuts back and forth in Revelation, we see the woes pronounced in Heaven and poured out on the people of the earth. Can they still repent, or do they just further harden their hearts? They don't appear to repent.

Will the woes include punishments on the nations that have harmed Israel, as prophesied by Ezekiel and the others? Although many of them were fulfilled long ago - are there still scores to be settled ?

Where is America in this conflict? Absent. In 2021/22 America is back-pedalling on the Trump administration's support for Israel, to empty words of support for Israel while pursuing policies harmful to Israel and friendly towards Iran.

The horde for the pivotal battle is not the Arabs, as we had come to expect. (Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey are Muslim but are not Arab)


I would very much like to hear how you find this exercise if you try it. Please drop me a message. And if you find it helpful, please let your friends know about it.

Final thoughts

I appreciate that the above exerise only makes sense if you are a wildolive believer and accept that God has not finished with the Jews and Israel

If you were a replacement theologian you would probably not have got this far, although this exercise meght even open eyes that were not too tightly clamped shut concerning Israel??

Finalised (?) 03/01/22

To be more ambitious - try REVELATION too.

If you are working on your own timeline oval, you might find it better to have a separate overlay for these references

My effort will be here Timeline 3 - Revelation.

Rev 6:1 Next I watched as the Lamb broke the first of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living beings say in a thundering voice, "Go!" (to the four horsemen to afflict the earth

Rev 6:9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been put to death for proclaiming the Word of God

Rev 6:12 sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake, the sun turned black as sackcloth worn in mourning, and the full moon became blood-red. The stars fell from heaven to earth just as a fig tree drops its figs when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place. Then the earth's kings, the rulers, the generals, the rich and the mighty - indeed, everyone, slave and free hid himself in caves and among the rocks in the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of the One sitting on the throne and from the fury of the Lamb!

Rev 7:4 144,000 from every tribe of the people of Isra'el:

Rev 7:9 a huge crowd, too large for anyone to count, from every nation, tribe, people and language.

Rev 8:6 Now the seven angels with the seven shofars prepared to sound them. and there came hail and fire mingled with blood, and it was thrown down upon the earth. ....... what looked like an enormous blazing mountain was hurled into the sea. .......and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky onto a third of the rivers and onto the springs of water. The name of the star was "Bitterness," and a third of the sun was struck, also a third of the moon and a third of the stars......... and I saw a star that had fallen out of heaven onto the earth, and he was given the key to the shaft leading down to the Abyss.............Then out of the smoke onto the earth came locusts, and they were given power like the power scorpions have on earth. four angels that are bound at the great river Euphrates!".................... . kept ready for this moment, for this day and month and year, to kill a third of mankind;

Rev 9:20 The rest of mankind, those who were not killed by these plagues, even then did not turn ..........

Rev 11:2 But the court outside the Temple, leave that out; don't measure it; because it has been given to the Goyim, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months. 3.5 years

Rev 11:15 The seventh angel sounded his shofar; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord and his Messiah, and he will rule forever and ever!"

Rev 12:1 Now a great sign was seen in heaven - a woman clothed with the sun, under her feet the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

Rev 12:3 Another sign was seen in heaven: there was a great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns,

Rev 12:9 The great dragon was thrown out, that ancient serpent, also known as the Devil and Satan [the Adversary], the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. When the dragon saw that he had been hurled down to the earth, he went in pursuit of the woman who had given birth to the male child.

Rev 12:17 The dragon was infuriated over the woman and went off to fight the rest of her children, those who obey God's commands and bear witness to Yeshua. Then the dragon stood on the seashore;

Rev 13:1 and I saw a beast come up out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads. ........ It was given a mouth speaking arrogant blasphemies; and it was given authority to act for forty-two months.

Rev 13:7 it was allowed to make war on God's holy people and to defeat them;

Rev 13:8 Everyone living on earth will worship it except those whose names are written in the Book of Life belonging to the Lamb ..................

Rev 13:11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. It had two horns like those of a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. It was allowed to put breath into the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could even speak; and it was allowed to cause anyone who would not worship the image of the beast to be put to death. Also it forces everyone - great and small, rich and poor, free and slave - to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead preventing anyone from buying or selling unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Rev 14:8 Another angel, followed, saying, "She has fallen! She has fallen! Bavel the Great! She made all the nations drink the wine of God's fury caused by her whoring!"

Rev 14:9 Another angel, followed them and said in a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives the mark on his forehead or on his hand, he will indeed drink the wine of God's fury poured undiluted into the cup of his rage. He will be tormented by fire and sulfur before the holy angels and before the Lamb,

Rev 14:18 Then out from the altar went yet another angel.......... "Use your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth's vine, because they are ripe!" The angel swung his sickle down onto the earth, gathered the earth's grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God's fury.

Rev 15:5 After this I looked, and the sanctuary (that is, the Tent of Witness in heaven) was opened, and out of the sanctuary came the seven angels with the seven plagues. ................

Rev 15:7 One of the four living beings gave to the seven angels seven gold bowls filled with the fury of God, who lives forever and ever.

Rev 16:9 People were burned by the intense heat; yet they cursed the name of God, who had the authority over these plagues, instead of turning from their sins to give him glory.

Rev 16:14 They are miracle-working demonic spirits which go out to the kings of the whole inhabited world to assemble them for the War of the Great Day of Adonai-Tzva'ot. And they gathered the kings to the place which in Hebrew is called Har Megiddo.

Rev 17:3 ........... and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast filled with blasphemous names and having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and glittered with gold, precious stones and pearls. In her hand was a gold cup filled with the obscene and filthy things produced by her whoring. On her forehead was written a name with a hidden meaning, BAVEL THE GREAT MOTHER OF WHORES AND OF THE EARTH'S OBSCENITIES

Rev 17:18 and the woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth."

Rev 18:2 He cried out in a strong voice, "She has fallen! She has fallen! Bavel the Great! .......... "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of God's fury caused by her whoring - yes, the kings of the earth went whoring with her, and from her unrestrained love of luxury the world's businessmen have grown rich."

Rev 18:4 Then I heard another voice out of heaven say: "My people, come out of her! so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not be infected by her plagues,

Rev 19:1 After these things, I heard what sounded like the roar of a huge crowd in heaven, shouting, "Halleluyah! The victory, the glory, the power of our God! For his judgments are true and just. He has judged the great whore who corrupted the earth with her whoring. He has taken vengeance on her who has the blood of his servants on her hands."

Rev 19:11 Next I saw heaven opened, and there before me was a white horse. Sitting on it was the one called Faithful and True, and it is in righteousness that he passes judgment and goes to battle.

Rev 19:17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out in a loud voice to all the birds that fly about in mid-heaven, "Come, gather together for the great feast God is giving, to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of generals, the flesh of important men, the flesh of horses and their riders.........

Rev 20:2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan [the Adversary], and chained him up for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, locked it and sealed it over him; so that he could not deceive the nations any more until the thousand years were over. After that, he has to be set free for a little while.

Rev 20:7 When the thousand years are over, the Adversary will be set free from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for the battle.

Rev 20:14 Then Death and Sh'ol were hurled into the lake of fire. This is the second death - the lake of fire. Anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life was hurled into the lake of fire.

Rev 21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had passed away, ...... Also I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from God,
