Dwelling with the Consuming Fire

Isaiah 33:14,15
The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: "Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?"  He who walks righteously and speaks what is right, who rejects gain from extortion and keeps his hand from accepting bribes, who stops his ears against plots of murder and shuts his eyes against contemplating eviló

What if you were going looking for a place to live and there was a owner-occupied live-in situation available which was free of charge and had all kinds of amenities. It offers not only have free utilities, food and medical service and even more than that eternal happiness. Wouldn't you take such an offer? Certainly, except for one issue. The home owner was not human but rather a consuming fire! And everytime you sinned you would get burned.

What appeared first to be heaven may now appear to be hell.
