God wants to engage evil through humanity. The lessons you encounter are those intended for evil and the rewards those intended for good. Jesus Christ is the example of the perfect human and his death the purchase price for us all.
The sixth seal of the scroll is broken by the lamb in Revelation 6:12-17. I believe it foretells of nuclear war, after righteousness in victory, brutal slaughter, economic ruin, and multitudinous death, and the petition of numerous martyred saints who testified to the word of God.
"Then I watched while he broke open the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; the sun turned black as dark sackcloth and the whole moon became like blood. The stars in the sky fell to the earth like unripe figs shaken loose from the tree in a strong wid. Then the sky was divided like a torn scroll curling up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place. The kings of the earth, the nobles, the military officers, the rich , the powerful, and every slave and free person hid themselves in caves and among mountsin crags. They cried out to the mountains and the rocks, 'Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of their wrath has come and who can withstand it?'"
This is the coming of nuclear war. A huge earthquake would be perceived from a single nuclear explosion, let along the amount triggered by a global nuclear war. The sun would turn as dark as sackcloth from the fallout and combustion and fires, likely over much of the earth. Where it was night, the fires would cover such a substantial portion of earth and pollute and carbonize the sky to such a degree that the moon would reflect the earth's firelight. Intercontinental ballistic missiles entering the atmosphere look and shine like stars falling, just like the space shuttle did. In a shooting war, they would be as numerous as "unripe figs shaken loose from the tree in a strong wind". A torn scroll curling up is distinctly a mushroom cloud. The other possible explanation for this would be a major asteroid shower hitting earth. The torn scroll curling up could be from plumes of debris from impacts. That would likely be described in more detail and directly, though. Then everyone on earth hid underground and begged the rocks to fall on them because the great day of wrath had arrived and who can stand up to it? This could be asteroids or it could also be nuclear war. I'd hide in a cave from asteroids, or nuclear fallout. Even kings would hide underground. But the great day of wrath? Judgement Day? It has historically been nuclear armageddon. I believe this is a Biblical passage describing nuclear war at the endtimes when Jesus Christ is returning. I believe humanity has been graciously spared nuclear war on several occasions during the Cold War.
Then the winds are held back by four angels, the righteous remaining are sealed, and a great multitude stood before the throne and the Lamb in heaven...
