In Daniel 7:9-10 the Lord’s throne was flames of fire; its wheels were a burning fire, and a stream of fire issued forth and came out from before Him. The fire coming from God’s throne indicates that God is absolutely righteous and altogether holy.
On the one hand we as believers come to the throne of God as the throne of grace, but at the same time we need to remember that our God is a consuming fire, and the throne we draw near to is filled with fire. The Lord Yeshua came to Cast Fire on Earth (Luke 12:49-50)
Luke 12:49 I have come to cast fire on the earth, and how I wish that it were already kindled! The Lord Yeshua came as the Son of Man not only to save the lost; he came to give us the divine life in abundance, and in Luke 12 He said He came to cast fire on earth. Messiah came to cast something on earth that will burn and ignite the earth. The Lord wants to see this fire lit up on the whole earth.~ Anonymous godman.com
