This is about a great and renowned One who conquered and judges. This about One who has conquered and is changing and removing an old order and bringing in a new one. At this moment, He is making massive changes to the world and to the kingdom of darkness for they have become His possession to do as He wishes in accordance the will of the heavenly Father.

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath, for the heavens will vanish away like smoke, the earth will grow old like a garment, and those who dwell in it will die in like manner (Isaiah 51:6; see also Isaiah 66:22-24)
From whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. (Revelation 20:11)
And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15)
The above scriptures indicate two disasters, not one. If the first disaster doesn’t kill humankind, the second certainly will with the exception of the saints who inherit the new earth. It occurs either at about the same time or one right after the other one. It is not just earth’s extinction below, but also its fleeing along with the heavens or both being pulled into a fiery abyss. I don’t understand anyone who says the earth cannot or will not be destroyed with black holes of varying sizes lurking everywhere in space. They downplay the severity of how it will be. The creator is capable of destroying.
The lake of fire existed during the first century. John would not call it a “super massive black hole”. No one could see this coming unless they were sensitive to the signs. The fire in the Day of the Lord that “burns like a furnace” seems to be this. The super volcanoes and other forms of natural fire are also reserved for the Day of Judgment. It is here the tormenter of the fiery, dark Hades becomes the tormented. It is here that he joins the beast and false prophet.
Wail for the day of the Lord is near! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will fall limp, and every man’s heart will melt. They will be terrified, pains and anguish will take hold of them; they will writhe like a woman in labor, they will look at one another in astonishment, their faces aflame. Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, cruel, with fury and burning anger, to make the land a desolation; and He will exterminate its sinners from it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not flash forth their light; the sun will be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed its light. Thus I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud and abase the haughtiness of the ruthless. I will make mortal man scarcer the pure gold and mankind than the fold of Ophir. Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and earth will be shaken from its place at the fury of the Lord of host in the day of His burning anger. (Isaiah 13:6-13)
Isaiah 13:6-13 describes the Day of the Lord which extends across millennia. In this description it describes making man “scarce” and “exterminating its sinners” which has the same meaning as extinction. It describes fire with the phrase “faces aflame”. It describes “the heavens and earth shaken from its place” (see also Hebrews 12:26-28). It describes “the stars of heaven and their constellations not flashing forth their light”. What is massive enough to cause stars to not shine anymore and actually cause trembling and shaking in the heavens? Hades within the earth where the dead are, a Super volcano, meteors, and the Sun cannot do this. This could be describing a mega black hole lurking unnoticed.
