"the seal of God in their foreheads" - Protestant Spread in the World

Protestant Spread in the World

The world seems to be accepting Protestantism more than the Vatican expects it to be.

Countries by percentage of Protestants in 1938 and 2010. Pentecostal and Evangelical Protestant denominations fueled much of the growth in Africa and Latin America. 

The Papal authority was one of major reasons that Japan rejected Christianity and forbade Christian missionaries coming into Japan in the early 17th century.  But if Protestants had been engaged in missions in Japan at the period, the then Samurai regime of Japan might have allowed them to propagate Christianity of the Protestant version in Japan.   If so, there should not have been national isolation of Japan between the early 17th century and the middle of 19th century.

Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
