Ya, candidly I didn't remember but was able to look it up:
"Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of
the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of
the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?" - Revelation 6:15-17
It has to do a lot with the coming judgement, the day of reckoning at hand. Basically at this time, people will remember or see what all their sins
have caused. It's an ugly thing I'm sure. If you can, close your eyes and try to remember every mistake that you've ever made, every selfish
decision, every time you didn't do the right thing, every time you had even the slightest of evil thought. Now imagine someone whom you love and
consider a good person see every bit of it. This is why grace, being saved, is so important. Though there is that ugly painting of our wrongs,
Christ takes an eraser every wrong mark and blotch until all that's left is a beautiful picture.
