GOD is a CONSUMING FIRE

 

Matthew 3:12

King James Version

12 Whose fan is in his hand, 

and he will throughly purge his floor, 

and gather his wheat into the garner; 

but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.


We have no idea God's power.

But Scripture has.

Genesis 19:23-25

King James Version

23 The sun was risen upon the earth 

when Lot entered into Zoar.

24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom 

and upon Gomorrah 

brimstone and fire from the Lord 

out of heaven;

25 And he overthrew those cities, 

and all the plain, 

and all the inhabitants of the cities, 

and that which grew upon the ground.


Exodus 19:16-18

King James Version

16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, 

that there were thunders and lightnings, 

and a thick cloud upon the mount, 

and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; 

so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

17 And Moses brought forth the people 

out of the camp to meet with God

and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, 

because the Lord descended upon it in fire: 

and the smoke thereof ascended 

as the smoke of a furnace

and the whole mount quaked greatly.


Numbers 11:1-3

King James Version

11 And when the people complained, 

it displeased the Lord: 

and the Lord heard it; 

and his anger was kindled; 

and the fire of the Lord burnt among them, 

and consumed them 

that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

2 And the people cried unto Moses; 

and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, 

the fire was quenched.

3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: 

because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.


Deuteronomy 4:23-24

King James Version

23 Take heed unto yourselves, 

lest ye forget the covenant of the Lord your God, 

which he made with you, 

and make you a graven image, 

or the likeness of any thing, 

which the Lord thy God hath forbidden thee.

24 For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, 

even a jealous God.


Psalm 21:8-9

King James Version

8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: 

thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.

9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven 

in the time of thine anger: 

the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, 

and the fire shall devour them.


Isaiah 66:22-24

King James Version

22 For as the new heavens 

and the new earth, 

which I will make, 

shall remain before me, 

saith the Lord, 

so shall your seed and your name remain.

23 And it shall come to pass, 

that from one new moon to another, 

and from one sabbath to another, 

shall all flesh come to worship before me, 

saith the Lord.

24 And they shall go forth, 

and look upon the carcases of the men 

that have transgressed against me: 

for their worm shall not die, 

neither shall their fire be quenched; 

and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.


Jeremiah 7:17-20

King James Version

17 Seest thou not what they do 

in the cities of Judah 

and in the streets of Jerusalem?

18 The children gather wood, 

and the fathers kindle the fire, 

and the women knead their dough, 

to make cakes to the queen of heaven, 

and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, 

that they may provoke me to anger.

19 Do they provoke me to anger? 

saith the Lord: 

do they not provoke themselves 

to the confusion of their own faces?

20 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; 

Behold, 

mine anger and my fury 

shall be poured out upon this place, 

upon man, 

and upon beast, 

and upon the trees of the field, 

and upon the fruit of the ground; 

and it shall burn, 

and shall not be quenched.


Jeremiah 17:27

King James Version

27 But if ye will not hearken unto me 

to hallow the sabbath day, 

and not to bear a burden

even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem 

on the sabbath day; 

then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, 

and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, 

and it shall not be quenched.


Malachi 4:1-3

King James Version

4 For, 

behold, 

the day cometh, 

that shall burn as an oven; 

and all the proud, 

yea, 

and all that do wickedly, 

shall be stubble: 

and the day that cometh shall burn them up, 

saith the Lord of hosts, 

that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

2 But unto you that fear my name 

shall the Sun of righteousness arise 

with healing in his wings; 

and ye shall go forth, 

and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; 

for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet 

in the day that I shall do this

saith the Lord of hosts.


Matthew 10:28

King James Version

28 And fear not them which kill the body, 

but are not able to kill the soul: 

but rather fear him which is able to destroy 

both soul and body in hell.


Matthew 25:41

King James Version

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, 

Depart from me, 

ye cursed, 

into everlasting fire, 

prepared for the devil 

and his angels:


Luke 12:4-5

King James Version

4 And I say unto you my friends, 

Be not afraid of them that kill the body

and after that have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: 

Fear him, 

which after he hath killed 

hath power to cast into hell; 

yea, 

I say unto you, 

Fear him.


Luke 12:49

King James Version

49 I am come to send fire on the earth

and what will I, 

if it be already kindled?


2 Thessalonians 1:7-10

King James Version

7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, 

when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven 

with his mighty angels,

8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them 

that know not God, 

and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction 

from the presence of the Lord, 

and from the glory of his power;

10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, 

and to be admired in all them that believe 

(because our testimony among you was believed) 

in that day.


Hebrews 12:29

King James Version

29 For our God is a consuming fire.


Revelation 14:9-11

King James Version

9 And the third angel followed them, 

saying with a loud voice, 

If any man worship the beast and his image, 

and receive his mark in his forehead, 

or in his hand,

10 The same shall drink of the wine 

of the wrath of God

which is poured out without mixture 

into the cup of his indignation; 

and he shall be tormented with fire 

and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, 

and in the presence of the Lamb:

11 And the smoke of their torment 

ascendeth up for ever and ever: 

and they have no rest day nor night, 

who worship the beast and his image, 

and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.


Revelation 20:7-10

King James Version

7 And when the thousand years are expired, 

Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

8 And shall go out to deceive the nations 

which are in the four quarters of the earth, 

Gog, 

and Magog, 

to gather them together to battle: 

the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, 

and compassed the camp of the saints about, 

and the beloved city: 

and fire came down from God out of heaven, 

and devoured them.

10 And the devil that deceived them 

was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, 

where the beast and the false prophet are, 

and shall be tormented day and night 

for ever and ever.


Revelation 21:8

King James Version

8 But the fearful, 

and unbelieving, 

and the abominable, 

and murderers, 

and whoremongers, 

and sorcerers, 

and idolaters, 

and all liars, 

shall have their part in the lake 

which burneth with fire and brimstone

which is the second death.
