Dispensational Truth images

Devoted followers have scanned and made freely available the full text and images of Clarence Larkin's groundbreaking 1918 work of premillenial dispensationalist Christian theology, Dispensational Truth; or God's Purpose and Plan Throughout the Ages.  It was first brought to my attention by James Elkins' discussion of painting, What Painting Is, and I looked it up... and the images are amazing!

A history of the world that has been, and the world that will come, through Larkin's interpretation of the Bible (i.e. mostly the books of Genesis, Daniel, and Revelations):

 And there's a schematic of all of human history, which will last only seven thousand years.  Each thousand years is equivalent to one of the days of creation:


 This time of man is marked by seven eras of crisis:


Man must muck his way through as best he can, relying on his threefold nature:


 If you screw up, there's a whole lot of judgment waiting for you:


We're in the sixth thousand years of the world, so the Antichrist is loose on the planet.  He's about fourteen years old now, in fact:


 And to help us, there's Jesus and the saints, compared and shown here with sun, moon, and stars:


Watch out for that Great Throne Judgment - it's gonna get ya!

Truly a beautiful book!
