OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE
The Sovereign God, The Creator of the Universe has the power and the right to destroy his creation --and there is nothing that anyone of us can do about it!
God destroyed all but eight persons with the flood of Noah's day; next time, it will be fire for those whose faith is not tested and approved.
If by His mercy and grace, God has given you faith to believe in The Father and The Son; and, then you refuse to submit to their authority, you will receive many-stripes before you perish.
"And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with MANY STRIPES. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with FEW STRIPES. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." Luke 12:47-48
"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:28-29
