Below are two charts for your study purposes. They both lay out visual representations of the outline of God's plan for planet Earth according to the Holy Scriptures. The first chart is by the late Dr. Clarence Larkin and is from his 1920 publication "Dispensational Truth." Some people are intimidated by the style of art on both of these charts. However, the believer who is able to look beyond this potential distraction and study the Scripture verses you will find with both of these charts will find a very enlightening diagram of God's plan for the Ages, before and after our beloved planet Earth as we know it.

Finis Dake also created a very detailed dispensational chart entitled: The Plan Of The Ages. This chart is much more detailed than Clarence Larkin's and is also a very large file. If you want to see this chart, click here. It will take a little time to load, however it is certainly worth the wait and you will have hours of wonderful Bible Study on your computer screen.

One of the finest resources for Premillennial Dispensational theology is the Scofield Reference Bible. While this Bible is perhaps the most "conservative" Bible available on the market today, it is also the absolutely most helpful Bible for our showing the truth that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and intersex sexual orientations are NOT condemned in the Holy Bible. There will be a lot more information added to this page in the future about the Scofield Reference Bible. For now:
Click here for some scholarly notes on C. I. Scofield and the Scofield Bible

JOHN NELSON DARBY was the Irish catholic cleric and theologian who did much to restore the ancient belief in the Millennial Kingdom "on Earth as it is in Heaven" during the last half of the 19th century. Dr. Darby defended the ancient, Apostolic Orthodox Christian Faith against the rise of Historical Criticism as it emerged from the Age Of Enlightenment and spawned the theological movement which today undermines the Divinity of Christ, the Resurrection, Ascension, Miracles, Substitutionary Atonement, physical Second Coming, physical Resurrection of the Saints and the lost, and the Inspiration of the Holy Scriptures. Rev. Darby was a scholar among scholars! We have hardbound copies of most of his published works in the St. Benedict Memorial Library. Rev. Darby did much to lay the foundation that was later developed by C. I. Scofield, James H. Brookes, Clarence Larkin, Finis Dakes, and many great contemporary theologians such as Jack VanImpe to restore a biblical hermeneutic that includes the entire Bible and an understanding of the whole plan of God for humanity.
