In Revelation 6:7-8, it is written:
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
We have previously argued that the conflict zones of the Middle East and Africa encompasses roughly a quarter of the world. As described in the above prophecy, violence and death are pandemic in those regions. It is our belief, that those conflict zones are now under the dominion of Death and Hades. It would appear that their dominion will soon have a major new addition — Iran. America, who attack Iraq, who continues to wage war in Afghanistan, who overthrew Qaddafi of Libya, who tried to overthrow Assad of Syria, who bombs Islamic groups throughout Africa, is now trying to overthrow the Iranian government. The economic sanctions that America has placed on Iran is causing tremendous suffering of its people — an intentional outcome as America hopes that should they suffer enough, they will be moved to overthrow their leaders. America is directly responsible for unleashing Death and Hades, as it was America’s military aggression that has plunged those regions into seemingly endless conflict. It would appear that it is only a matter of time before Iran becomes engulfed in civil war, thereby giving Death and Hades new souls to feed upon.
Many of the prophecies found in Revelation are not manifested by a single event, but rather, represent the start of a tidal change, and overtime, that change grows and magnifies. We would expect the death and suffering of those trapped in the dominion of Death and Hades will only worsen with the passing of time.
