7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 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.
When God judges the earth, He will use 7 seal judgments, 7 trumpet judgments, and 7 vial judgments. All these judgments will unleash the wrath of God upon a sin loving, Christ rejecting world. Today people think it is cool to reject the Lord Jesus and to enjoy all kinds of sin. For example, sodomy is now legalized, babies are murdered in the womb, and the devil's people are working fervently to setup the kingdom of the antichrist while citizens embrace the occult via Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
God will one day bring the entire world into judgment. Sin will not continue forever without being judged. God brought terrible and final judgment to the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah which gave themselves over to homosexuality. The Bible says the destruction of these cities was an example to people living who do the same sins. Today homosexuality is accepted and legalized world-wide. This alone is a major sign of impending Divine judgment!
2 Pet 2
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
Right now lost people and false Christian tares laugh and mock at the holiness of God. They love their sexual immoralities, false religions, pet heresies, rock music, and occultism. Abuse is given to any that give Godly warnings from the Bible. These lost people may laugh now but the day of their hell-fire is coming. Soon they will be grinding their teeth in pain as they find themselves forever in the lake of fire!
In the world, future events many times, cast a shadow. Below is an article that casts a dark shadow of the 4th seal of the judgment of God. The Bible says that 1/4 of the population of earth will be destroyed by war, hunger, death, and with the beasts of the earth. I would say this would include deadly diseases as described in the article below. When the time of judgments is ripe, there will be all kinds of horrible diseases in the world killing people. Lost people who trust in modern science will weep and wail as nothing can be done to stop the coming plagues!

Bird Flu Strain May Threaten Humans
A strain of bird flu that scientists fear could lead to a worldwide pandemic in humans is becoming more infectious to mammals. Millions of chickens and other fowl have had to be slaughtered in Asia - and thousands more have been killed in the United States and elsewhere - to stem outbreaks of avian flu in recent years. Scientists say it is only a matter of time before the virus adapts to spread among humans.
The flu already passed from birds to humans in Hong Kong in 1997, killing six of 18 infected people. Since then human cases also have been reported in Vietnam and Thailand.
Now China-based researchers studying the H5N1 flu strain report that over the years it is changing to become more dangerous to mammals. Their research, based on tests in mice, is reported in Monday's issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. ...ap http://apnews.myway.com/article/20040628/D83GABH00.html
