“Images of God differ from person to person, depending on personality, fervor, imagination, upbringing and a variety of circumstances.
They also differ from stage to stage of our spirtual progress. For those of a prophetic calling, the image of God as fire is not uncommon. For most of us, more than likely, this image raises the specter of the last things and God as Judge.
However, from ancient to modern times the metaphor of fire has been used to signify the passionate love of God for creation and creatures, as well as the indwelling love of God for Godself.”
