During the seals, one fourth of the earth's environment and population are devastated by war, famine, epidemics, earthquakes and martyrdom.
During the first four trumpets, one third of the earth's plants and animals are destroyed. During the final three trumpets, one third of the human population is killed. The reasons for this destruction stem primarily from our erroneous ways of life, both in war and peace. During the bowls of wrath, nearly the entire world is destroyed by the unrestrained evil of people under the Antichrist.
|The outcome finally demonstrates the power of falsehood, and the origin and result of evil.|
