Gist

The 29th Ayah starts with pointing out the entire creation’s sheer dependency on Allah alone! Allah then issues a threat to both the humans and the jinns, that soon their affairs and all that they are doing will be settled. On the Day of Judgment humans and jinns will try to escape but they wont be able to do so. When Jinns try to escape through skies they will be attacked by flames (as a punishment for trying to escape).
The sky will turn blood red in color. There will be no need to question anyone about their sins because it will be shown on their faces.

THE NEXT  VERSE (55:41) IS VERY PROFOUND AND VERY SCARY
(In a sense very humiliating to think you will be treated so in front of the entire humanity – we need to keep in mind Allah is Al Adl i.e., THE MOST JUST! in His punishment and everything else)

Verse 41 
The Mujrimun (polytheists, criminals, sinners, etc.) will be known by their marks (black faces), and they will be seized by their forelocks and their feet. 
Tafsir Titbit :
We witness in this world that the meat or animals in slaughter houses are held by their heads and feet. The implication is if you decide to live like an animal (without giving thought to your desires and just blindly acting upon them), then on the Day of Judgement you will be treated like an animal.
** Also please notice and internalize that sinners are mentioned who can very much be believers but those who sinned – gives a whole new meaning to repentance and seeking forgiveness in Ramadan **
