1987-1998 The Fourth group of Twelve years.

What occurs from 1996 to 1998 is still unknown but maybe John can tell us.

Rev. 6:7-8 (Fourth Seal)

   Rev. 6:7 And when He opened the fourth seal,
I heard the voice of the fourth Living Being say, "Go!" (The fourth living creature was "like a flying eagle," or a high-soaring intelligence and judgment descending on the ungodly, as the king of birds on his prey)

   Rev. 6:8 And I looked and, behold,
a pale horse (‘Chloros’ pale green of a horse symbolizes death, an image of desolating war, and reign of death),
and the name of him who sat on it was Death (Its rider was ‘’Thanatos’, symbol of destruction, massive death not necessarily loss of corporeal life but the separation of man from God, a spiritual Death),
and Hades (Hell a situation or place of evil, misery, discord, or destruction, a temporary destiny of the doomed)
followed along with him (pp. as on another horse).
And authority was given to them over the fourth part (‘Tetartos’) (possibly 1.4 billion of 5.6 billion people projected to increase to 2.1 billion of 8.5 billion by the year 2025 A.D. representing the Christ rejecting world and the world population figures) of the earth,
to kill with sword (carnal weapons; war),
and with hunger (‘Limos’ famine, discomfort, weakness, or pain caused by a prolonged lack of food),
and with death (belief in the life of matter; disease),
and with the beasts (pp. wild animals; persecution, political and religious which is hostile to God) of the earth.
