While we may not agree with every last detail of the content of this site, we have found the research and incites very helpful in our own Bible Studies.

The above charts are purely speculation. No one can predict exactly how and when the events in the book of Revelation will be fulfilled. However, in trying to understand the major events covered in the book of Revelation, it can be helpful to have a visual aid such as a chart. We all have different ways of visualizing events and expressing them in chart form. These charts are Scott's and Doug's personal study aids. And as you will notice, there are slight difference of opinions. They share them hoping you might find them helpful while realizing they are not meant to be the final word in how the book of Revelation will be fulfilled.

Catholics Changed Sabbath to Sunday, Not the Bible

The following web sites discuss how the Sabbath was changed from the seventh day of the week to the first. While technically speaking the Roman Emperor Constantine issued an edict (in order to unite religious factions in his empire) that all his peoples should worship on the first day of the week, the Catholic Church supported, accepted and enforced this change and often take credit for it in their own writings. There are many sites about this topic, but most put their own "spiritual spin" on the topic. The web sites listed below, in our opinion, offer a more accurate and spiritually balanced approach. It is also interesting to note that the Catholic Church considers the Sabbath commandment to be the third of the ten commandments -- which their short version states it as "Remember to keep holy the Lord's day." They drop the Biblical third commandment about graven images and split the last commandment into two commandments about not coveting.
