1 And they took me to a place where they were like burning fire, and, when they wished, they made themselves look like men.
(Hebrews 1:7)

2 And they led me to a place of storm, and to a mountain, the tip of whose summit reached to Heaven.
(Deuteronomy 4:10-12), (Deuteronomy 5:22-23), (Hebrews 12:18)

3 And I saw lighted places, and thunder in the outermost ends, in its depths a bow of fire, and arrows and their quivers, and a sword of fire, and all the flashes of lightning.
(Deuteronomy 33:2), (Isaiah 66:16)

4 And they took me to the Water of Life, as it is called, and to the Fire of the West, which receives every setting of the Sun.

5 And I came to a river of fire, whose fire flows like water, and pours out into the Great Sea, which is towards the west.
(Daniel 7:9-11), (Psalm 97:1-3)

7 And I saw the Mountains of the Darkness of Winter and the place where the water of all the deeps pours out.

8 And I saw the mouths of all the rivers of the Earth, and the mouth of the deep.

11 “Then you came near and stood at the foot of the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire to the midst of heaven, with darkness, cloud, and thick darkness. 12 And the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard the sound of the words, but saw no form; you onlyheard a voice.”

(Deuteronomy 5:22-23) “22 “These words the Lord spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.
23 “So it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders.”

(Hebrews 12:18) “18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest,”

(Daniel 7:9-11) Vision of the Ancient of Days
“9 “I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire;
10 A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened.
11 “I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame.”

(Psalm 97:1-3) A Song of Praise to the Sovereign Lord
“97 The Lord reigns; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad!

3 A fire goes before Him, And burns up His enemies round about.”

22 A land as dark as darkness itself, As the shadow of death, without any order, Where even the light is like darkness.’””

(Jude 1:6, 13) “6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;
13 raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.”

(2 Peter 2:4) “4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;”

(2 Peter 2:17-18) “17 These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
18 For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error.”
