Revelation 6:12–17 (ESV)
The Sixth Seal
12 When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. 14 The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, 16 calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

This is a frightening picture of the last day.  There are many different interpretations of what is going on, whether the sky is falling or covered up with smoke, whichever it is, you don’t want to be there.  I’m going to take a moment and again restate what I said at the beginning of this book.  There are many interpretations and views.  I am adamantly against the premillennialism which is based on a “second chance” which is not found in the Bible.  I know there will be those who will disagree with me and that’s ok.  You cannot avoid the big question of where in the Bible do you get a second chance, because it is not there.  Regardless, whether you believe in Pre-millennialism, Post-millennialism, Amillennialism, etc... it is by faith in Jesus Christ that you are saved.   The main message of Revelation still stands and that is to endure in the faith unto the end.  
Verses 12-14 talk about what happens to the earth on the last day and verses 15-17 talk about what happens to the enemies of God.  They will run, they will hide, but they can’t escape the wrath of the Lamb, for the day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?  Unfortunately, they will know the truth that Jesus is Lord, but it is too late.  Truth be known, after judgement day, there will be no unbelievers in hell.  Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.  I pray: Lord, help me to get the message of Jesus Christ out into the world.  Heaven and Hell are very real.  Help me to plant the seeds of faith and to be ready for the harvest.  Help me to keep my eyes fixed on you and to remain faithful unto the end.  Amen.
