For the L-rd thy G-d is a consuming fire, even a jealous G-d.  (Deuteronomy. 4:24) (Ezekiel 36:5)
Remarks about a consuming FIRE:
1. To devour your enemies. For the wicked one a disaster! Destruction!
2. A cleansing
FIRE, Revival FIRE, Purifying FIRE, for those who keep their faith in G-d!
FIRE is a sanctifying, Holy Divine work in the lives and souls of believers.

2. Man's anger


An ungodly man digest up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire. (Proverbs 16:2) My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spoke I with my tongue, (Psalm 39:3)

3. G-d's Word


Wherefore thus saith the L-rd G-d of hosts, because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them. (Jeremiah 5:14) Is not my word like as a fire? saith the L-rd; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?  (Jeremiah 23:29)

4. Sin


Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? (Proverbs 6:27) (Also in Isaiah 9:18)

5. The tongue


Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. (James 3:5-6)

6. Ministers


Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire! (Psalm 104:4; Hebrews 1:7)

7. Yeshua, the Messiah or Jesus the Christ


But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeared? For He is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' sope! (Malachi 3:2) He shall come then like a refiner's fire, a refiner of silver and gold, and fuller's soap; and He will purify the "sons of Levi", and purge them as gold and silver that they might offer the offerings of righteousness to the L-rd.

8. The Fire of the Holy Spirit


I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit {Roach HaKodesh}, and with fire! (Matthew 3:1; & Revelation 4:5)


The fire is the most powerful and striking element. The symbol of His own transcendent glory and the power of His presence and His Holy Spirit. The Fire is the most valuable physical with which we are acquainted. G-d Himself is the Personal source of all forces.

The burning bush' tree that burned in front of Moses, was not consumed, thus making the emblem of fire the special symbol of His presence with Israel. It was fire that G-d manifested His presence at Mount Sinai (descended). The Shekinah Glory in the midst of the holy of Holies was probably a glowing flame of Fire! As the fire was kept ever burning, so the Holy Spirit in the consecrated soul will make our whole life a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto G-d!
Yeshua Messiah or Jesus Christ, our spiritual substance, nourishing and feeding us with His own life by the Fire  of the Holy Spirit!

One of the most beautiful of all offerings was the incense presented in the Holy place. This also was an offering by fire! The fire which consumed the incense is a type of the Holy Spirit, without whom all our prayers must stop short from from Heaven, and through whom alone our desires can reach the Throne and become effectual with G-d.

The cleansing by Fire is not always pleasant. It sometimes like the touch of lye, a consuming Fire, but it is a wholesome thing, like the burning away of 'proud' flesh by caustic, to have our very nature purified for us, from self and sin! The Holy Spirit is the source of power!

Picture: Golden Altar of incense has to stand cornerswise
Two rings for the gold-covered staves passing through, by which is was carried - corner-wise, and was so placed in the Holy place, presenting to one entering a corner and not a side! So the horns of the Altar might point to each of the four great armies (tribes) of Israel encamped around the Tabernacle! (Exodus 30:4)

9. Tribulation


That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perished, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of (The Messiah Yeshua - Jesus Christ! (1 Peter 1:7) (Also Psalm 66:1) Fire only separates all the foreign and impure materials from gold.  It loses nothing of its nature, weight, color, or any other property.  Gold has been kept in a state of fusion for months without the smallest change. Genuine faith also will be proved by trials! (Purification)

10. G-d's anger


Circumcise yourselves to the L-rd, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings. (Jeremiah 4:4)

It means to remove all stubbornness in the nature against G-d, stop all opposition to Him, and be not stiff-necked anymore! The ones who would have G-d's fury come upon them to the full if they did not obey! (See also: Jeremiah 21:12; Isaiah 31:9; Ezekiel 36:5)

11. Judgment


And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, The L-rd is my G-d. (Zechariah. 13:9) (See also: Isaiah 10:16-17; Jeremiah 17:27; 50:32)

12. Persecution & division because of the gospel


I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already kindled? (Luke 12:49)
(Luke 12:51-53; Matthew 10:34-36).

13. Purifying Fire!


When gold has reached the very last step in purification by Fire, it becomes clear as crystal! (Purified Divine nature!)

14. The All-consuming, burning Fire of G-d!


The FIRE of the living G-d burns these things deep in our hearts, IF we allow the Holy Spirit to do this tremendous work! Break up your fallow ground. (Hosea 10:12) Itís time to allow the Holy Spirit to touch us and make this ground soft and ready for the seeds. Breaking every stronghold in Yeshuaí Name! Break the power of satan over every life! Break every resistance and loose the POWER of G-d! Yes, the All-consuming FIRE of G-d will burn, deep, deeper in our hearts so that every religious spirit will be burned and consumed! May freedom come back into the church and in our lives! G-d can restore in our church that which satan has stolen out of the church; that which was originally G-ds provision! We can have a closer and deeper walk with God! Now is the time that the Father is sending His ministers like arrows, with Holy Divine FIRE, directed by the Holy Spirit to pronounce and to prepare His people for the great Move of G-d, world-wide and to get a deeper relationship with the Father. Itís now time to cooperate with G-d! (Job 23:1-12; Job 29:9) Itís now time that ministers go out and bring Fire among His people. Itís now time to prophesy and speak unto to the dry bones, to come alive! (Ezekiel 37) A deeper work from G-d, through His capable no compromising ministers! Ministers must be prepared to pay the price for their ministry and buy from the L-rd gold, tried in the FIRE, so that they become rich, and have white raiment, so that they are clothed with the glory of G-d and not naked! (Revelation 3:18)  G-d paid the price of our redemption. Man is now obligated to meet G-dís demands; faith, repentance, and commitment to serve G-d, if he wants to continue to live a G-dly live. The word in the Book of Revelation is not used of man actually paying a price in money, goods, exchanging material things for the gold, raiment, and ointment; (version 18); but, rather of his paying the price of renouncing satan, repenting of sins, and consecrating himself to G-d in the face of suffering and persecution, such as Christians must suffer for the Messiah. Yea and all that will live G-dly in Yeshua/Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (2 Timothy 3:12) ...For I reckon that the suffering of this present time is not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18) ...But what things were gain to me, I counted loss for Yeshua/Christ. Yea, doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the Excellency of the knowledge of Yeshua/Christ Jesus my L-rd: for whom I have suffered the lost of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Yeshua/Christ. (Philippians 3:7, 8) The trial of their faith is much more precious than gold that perishes. Although faith was tried with FIRE, may it be found to praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Yeshua, the Messiah or Jesus the Christ! (1 Peter 1:7) They have the purity of soul and heart, the obedience to the truth, the yieldedness to the Holy Spirit, the love without hypocrisy and with fervency, and the new birth by the Word. They worship G-d in Spirit and rejoice in Yeshua. They havenít any confidence in flesh or self-righteousness, and count all things loss and trash, so that they may win the Excellency of the knowledge of Yeshua. They reach out for future things and press toward the prize. They strive to be an example and look towards their Lord, Yeshua, the Messiah; Jesus Christ. They know the L-rd and have found Him in His power. They have become a new creature according to the character of Yeshua/Christ Himself! You shall recognize them, by their fruits! ...Who maketh His angelís spirits and His ministers a FLAME OF FIRE! (Hebrews 1:7; Psalms 104:5) (Out of the Book "Preparation for the great Revival"; Author: Paul van Beek)

15. Going through the All-consuming FIRE of G-d! part II 


If you are ready to go through the Fire of G-d, then you are going through a transaction of your own will, not of a sentiment! Let the consequences be what they may, there is no strand of complaint now, no matter what G-d chooses. G-d will put you through crises in private; no one person is able to help another. Externally the life may be still the same; the different is your own will! Go have to go through this kind of personal crises in will, then it will results in coming externally and there will be no thoughts of the costs. If you do not transact in will with G-d along this process, you will end in awakening sympathy only for yourself! Your sacrifices on the altar, on the Merci-seat of G-d, means going through the all-consuming FIRE of G-d! The burning, purification and insulation for one purpose only, the destruction of every affinity that G-d has not started and of every attachment in G-d. You do not destroy it, G-d does!  Resulting in that you will not allow giving way to self-pity when the FIRES begin! After this painful process of FIRE, there is nothing that oppresses or depresses anymore! When other crises arise, you are realizing that these things cannot tough you anymore as these used to do in your past! Are you willing to scarify your will to the all-consuming Fires of G-d? Are you willing to move in G-d's directions, facing new challenges? It is becoming flexible, so G-d can move you easily for His purpose!
