It was never the physical "fire" that the ancients had in mind.
They used the physical fire as a symbol of the divine FIRE OF
UNIVERSAL MIND. of TRUTH. of LAW. of the processes of all
EVOLUTION. and they held that if all the dross and maya is
burned away from our minds, and if they are purified, then we
re-become part of the DIVINE UNIVERSAL FIRE.
Fire is a mystery and far more than the mere oxidation at high
temperature of combustibles.
When a symbol is presented to us, our tendency is to materialize
and even to trivialize it. The ancients, as can be found in The
SECRET DOCTRINE and ISIS UNVEILED held FIRE to be something grand
If we try looking up the references there under FIRE, FLAME. It
will be found to be very illuminating. Here are some of them:
CREATIVE PRINCIPLE, a deity presiding over Time, a Dragon of
Wisdom, burns away the lower senses, has never yet been
discovered, is the progeny of electricity, symbolizes the Divine
SPIRIT, the Holy Ghost, process of Initiation, creative Force,
primitive and primordial Force that condenses into "matter." and
so on ....

I wonder, Steve, if the fixation the ancient Israelites had with
it volcanic or otherwise, then finds its way into Christian
writings and into the mindset of modern Christian
The end of the world by fire, often now explained as a revelatory
a future nuclear event, my more aptly be a look back to this
volcanic destruction which cover much of that tribes known world
could easily translation into future world annihilation as they
It could also give more meaning to the idea of the "wicked" being
into a "lake of fire and brimstone". Maybe even taken from some
bolder souls who had looked at the magma from a perch high atop a
Or perhaps even ritual sacrifice. After all ,he Caananitish god
was a fire god., hollowed out with a burning furnace into which
were cast. Was the original Molech the volcano itself? Southsea
Interesting speculations at least! It could explain much.
