The first 4 Seals described in Revelation Chapter 6 are open and have occurred and continue to this day.

These are the events foretold by John the Apostle.

1. World Conquest attempted
2. World Peace gone
3. Food shortages while some grow rich
4. Armed Conflict, Famine, Plague, attacks by wild animals

The 5th Seal will occur in Heaven and we do not know if it has occurred already or will occur soon.

5. Martyrs accounted for in Heaven

The 6th Seal will be the start of God's direct punishment of the earth. Christians may not see this. They will be taken away, likely before it starts just as Lot was removed from Sodom before its judgement.

6. World wide earthquakes & Sun goes dark

The 7th Seal is the first prophecy which shows that the Church is in Heaven. Will you be with them?

7. The Church is seen in Heaven for the first time

4th Seal explained

Revelation 6:7-8
"7 When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come!" 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth."

The Surface area of the earth 510,066,000 sq km
Total land area 152,196,921 sq. km.
(Not inclusive of small islands)

Let us next consider World War II. If anything, World War II was the greater of the two wars. World War II encompassed active armed conflict in most of Asia, all of Europe, North Africa, plus other parts of the earth, and included massive tracts of ocean including all major oceans and most seas.

Consider the landmass of the following countries and regions, (as their names appear today). All of these countries experienced armed conflict on their soil from 1939 to 1945.

or 25% of the world’s landmass

If you include the combatant countries of the United States of America (Hawaii) and Canada (the submarine attacks in Canadian Territorial waters) you arrive at a larger percentage.

Of all the countries of the world in 1945, only Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and Vatican City remained neutral. It is accurate to say that a majority of the world was at war during World War II, not just 25%.

All the other countries of the World were at war.

Since World War II, war has been ongoing virtually unstopped in a large number of countries world wide. Here is a list.    ongoing wars in the 21st Century

And, we should not forget the many Genocides of the 20th Century. These are war on a people by their government of other national factions, not traditional war.

We should take a minute to remember the biggest and baddest ones such as:  Stalin's purges prior to World War II which left 23,000,000 dead,

Mao's purges from 1949 to1950, 1958 to1961, and 1966 to 1969  that left up to 78 million dead.

But dozens exist in the pages of the history of the 20th Century. These include such countries as Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia, Darfur, and the list goes on and on.

A list of modern genocides can be found by running a search for Modern Genocides on your favourite search engine.
