Revelation 6:12 – 17 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.  And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.  And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Out of all the seals, the sixth seal will be the most dramatic judgment to take place. When the sixth seal is opened, the earth will experience a great earthquake. Some of the known side effects of an earthquake are fires, floods, tsunamis, landslides, volcanic activities, and soil liquefaction which cause structures to tilt, sink, or collapse. The earth becomes dark for the sun and moon are not providing their natural light. Stars and meteors will fall to earth, causing catastrophic damage, destruction, and craters. Stars are big. Can you imagine one falling on your house? Every mountain and island, will shift. I believe for the shifting of every mountain and island; this earthquake will be somehow global and not localized.

All of these occurrences will affect crops, transportation, energy, housing, healthcare, military, emergency services, communication, and the list goes on. My mind has difficulty grasping the magnitude of this event. All I can say, “Thank God, I will not be there.”

Social status will not protect people from the wrath of God. The earth inhabitants will fearfully try to hide in caves. Repentance is not sought, but they requested death with the realization that the day of reckoning is upon them. Unfortunately, this shows us the hardness of man’s heart, that amid turmoil, they are still too stubborn to seek and turn to God.
